Emma Stone Carries Andrew Garfield-Labeled Bag Post-Split — See the Odd Photo!

30 April 2015 2:22 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Are Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield getting back together?! The Easy A actress was spotted out in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, April 29, picking up items from her stylist’s office and one bag in particular has caught our eye. Stone, who recently split from her boyfriend of three years, carried with her a shopping bag labeled for Garfield. While it’s unclear what exactly was in the bag — or why it would be in Stone’s possession — the two exes do share the same stylist.  The Amazing Spider-Man [...] »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Emma Stone

29 April 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Andrew Medichini/AP

Emma Stone’s personality suggests she is an unlikely Hollywood superstar, but her quirky, down-to-Earth charm has swept up fans from across the globe.

The 26-year-old is still a young actress, but she has starred in 30 different productions, with several major films under her belt, including the first two films from the The Amazing Spider Man series, Easy A and most recently, Birdman, which has four Oscars and a further 191 award wins to its name.

Her reputation has basically grown to the point where she’s seen as every man’s perfect woman, frequently playing offbeat, unconventional, and often tomboy-ish characters, but she has proven herself to be a hard-hitting, serious actress when called upon.

Stone is not resting on her success though, as she is set to star in Aloha this Spring, alongside a star-studded cast of Bradley Cooper, Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, John Krasinski and Rachel McAdams. »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

The Duff review: A sharp, internet-savvy high school comedy

5 April 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Ari Sandel; Screenwriter: Josh A Cagan; Starring: Mae Whitman, Robbie Amell, Bella Thorne, Allison Janney, Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 12A

"It was just me, in a dress," Mae Whitman's teenage tomboy Bianca notes in voiceover, as she trades in her sloppy plaid shirts and baggy jeans for a cute Lbd. We've seen this moment before, the She's All That transformation where the so-called awkward girl turns miraculously into a hottie, and this knowing aside is one of many small-but-truthful twists that elevate The Duff from the nightmare it could have been.

An internet-savvy rom-com adapted from the novel by teen wunderkind author Kody Keplinger, The Duff sounds horrifying in concept. A high schooler played by the appealing, petite Whitman is horrified to learn that she is "the Duff" (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her two effortlessly gorgeous BFFs, and sets out to overhaul her image in order to »

1 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Though Avengers: Age of Ultron is probably the one film marked in everyone's diary this month, April also has some big treats in store for cinephiles.

There's the chance to revisit a sci-fi classic on the big screen, bid an emotional farewell to Paul Walker and catch a teen flick that's drawing comparisons with Mean Girls and Easy A.

Why you should see it: If you've never seen Blade Runner on the big screen before then this re-release (courtesy of the BFI) is a chance to immerse yourself in Ridley Scott's bleak vision of a future Los Angeles.

Re-Viewed: 10 Things I Hate About You celebrates its 16th birthday

31 March 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Released just four years after 1995's disarmingly smart Clueless became a teen sleeper hit, 10 Things I Hate About You shared some of its sly, sidelong perspective on high school dynamics, not to mention its literary pedigree. Today marks 16 years since the film's Us release date, meaning 10 Things has officially come of age, but its modern day screwball romance and salty humour hasn't aged a day.

Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew is a less widely-read source text than Jane Austen's Emma, and 10 Things is by necessity a looser adaptation than Clueless - Shrew's much-discussed ending, which concludes that women must learn to be subservient to their husbands, wouldn't fly even as irony in the present day.

Only the skeleton of Shakespeare's plot remains, and proves just how timeless the rom-com conventions which he originated have become. The overprotective father of pretty, popular high schooler Bianca (Larisa Oleynik) forbids her from dating »

Penn Badgley Says Blake Lively Was His Best (And Worst) On Screen Kiss

12 March 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Penn Badgley is getting super candid about a former flame! The "Gossip Girl" alum appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" Wednesday, where he opened up about one former co-stars/ex-girlfriend. During the show, a viewer called in to ask the 28-year-old who his best and worst on screen kiss has been, and the star gave quite the surprising answer!  "It's hard to say, on-screen kisses are not really that real. I'd say best, I'll say it was Blake (Lively) because we actually had a relationship at the time," he revealed.  "And then the worst? Maybe Blake, after we broke up." "I would think that would be hard after you break up with someone and you're still playing love interests," host Andy Cohen laughed.   But the actor insisted it wasn't awkward.    "We were constantly professional to be honest. And I think we should both pat ourselves on the back for getting through that, »

Amanda Bynes to stay under conservatorship

25 February 2015 9:20 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Amanda Bynes will remain under the conservatorship of her mother. The 28-year-old actress is ''doing well'' under the care of Lynn Bynes - who was put in charge of her affairs for the second time last November after the 'Easy A' star underwent a stint in a psychiatric hospital - and a judge ruled at a hearing yesterday (24.02.15) that the arrangement will continue until the next hearing on June 23. Her attorney David Esquibias told 'Access Hollywood': ''I am glad the arrangement is continuing. The legal process is working in Amanda's favour. She's doing well.'' The hearing comes a few weeks after it was ruled Amanda will not be charged with driving under the influence (DUI). The troubled actress was arrested in the early hours of September 28 2014 but the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office have now opted not to press charges but ''after much deliberation and review'', »

‘The Duff’ is a mildly entertaining comedy with confused identity politics

24 February 2015 5:43 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Duff

Written by Josh A. Cagan (based on a novel by Kody Keplinger)

Directed by Ari Sandel

USA, 2015

The Duff takes the geek-gets-a-makeover high school formula and tweaks it mostly muddled results. A few naturalistic romance scenes and the efforts of its very able leads, buoy this into watchable territory. However overall this is a film plagued by confusion and several nonsensical plot twists.

Bianca (Parenthood’s Mae Whitman) lacks style and popularity, but living in the orbit of her two popular best friends, fashionista Jess (Skyler Samuels) and athlete Casey (Bianca Santos), she barely notices. The film opens with a Breakfast-Club-esque voiceover from Bianca about how high school used to be broken down into the jock, the nerd, the criminal, the princess, and the basket case, but now that it’s the 21st century, geeks rule the world, jocks play video games, and most of the old social stratifications no longer exist. »

Weekend Report: Moviegoers Flee From 'Fifty Shades'

22 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Coming off a massive holiday weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey plummeted 74 percent in its second outing. Still, the movie easily held on the top spot this weekend with $22.3 million.Among the new releases, McFarland, USA and The Duff did solid business, while Hot Tub Time Machine 2 flopped.Fifty Shades of Grey's 74 percent drop is steeper than the second weekend declines for The Fault in our Stars, Valentine's Day, and all five Twilight movies. It's the second-biggest decline ever for a movie playing at over 3,000 locations; the worst belongs to the Friday the 13th remake, which fell 80 percent on this same weekend in 2009.Adapted from an immensely popular book and opening on Valentine's Day weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey was always going to be fairly front-loaded. Still, the movie's horrible reviews (25 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and weak word-of-mouth ("C+" CinemaScore) surely contributed in some way.Fifty Shades has now earned $129.2 million, »

Friday Report: 'Fifty Shades' Plummets, 'Hot Tub' Drowns

21 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It was a tough day at the box office on Friday. Fifty Shades of Grey collapsed heading in to its second weekend, while comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 bombed.It wasn't all bad news, though, as The Duff and McFarland, USA slightly over-performed against very modest expectations.Fifty Shades of Grey added $8 million on Friday, which is off a massive 74 percent from its opening day. Without a Valentine's Day boost, the movie could wind up earning less than $24 million for the three-day weekend. Fifty Shades now seems poised to earn less than the original Twilight movie ($192.8 million) over the course of its run. At the start of its second weekend, Kingsman: The Secret Service fell 49 percent to an estimated $5.3 million. That result is essentially twice as high as A Good Day to Die Hard and This Means War at the same post-President's Day point. For the weekend, Kingsman should wind up around $17 million. »

Forecast: 'Fifty Shades' Set to Spank 'Hot Tub' Sequel This Weekend

19 February 2015 4:31 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Coming off one of the busiest weekends in years, the box office is going to quiet down significantly this coming weekend.Hot Tub Time Machine 2, McFarland, USA and The Duff are all opening in at least 2,500 theaters, though it would be surprising if any of these took in over $15 million this weekend. Therefore, the top three spots should once again belong to Fifty Shades of Grey, Kingsman: The Secret Service and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.Coming off a massive $85.2 million debut, Fifty Shades of Grey seems poised to take a dive this weekend. Word-of-mouth is mixed, die-hard book fans likely already made it out last weekend, and romantic movies tend to fall hard coming off Valentine's Day. About Last Night (2014), Endless Love and Valentine's Day all fell at least 70 percent on this same weekend, while the Twilight sequels and The Fault in our Stars had similar second weekend drops. »

The Duff Review

18 February 2015 11:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mae Whitman is one of those enormously talented young actors that has been waiting in the wings for a lead role for some time. The 26-year-old already has 119 IMDb credits to her name, breaking out in the mid-1990s with small turns as George Clooney and Bill Pullman’s daughter in One Fine Day and Independence Day, respectively. She has chops for both comedy and drama, and is able to squeeze out droll laughs as the nondescript Ann Veal on Arrested Development and then break your heart as the insecure Mary Elizabeth in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Whitman has such tremendous ability on the screen that it is a pity her first major leap above the marquee is in such a mediocre film. The Duff, based on Kody Keplinger’s novel, is a silly, clichéd and rarely convincing high-school comedy – perhaps because Whitman is too fresh and beautiful »

Best Supporting Actress: Is Emma Stone upset talk just silly at this point?

17 February 2015 6:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This year's Best Supporting Actress race has pretty much been settled since the equivalent honor was handed out at the BAFTA Awards earlier this month, but indulge as we pay tribute to some of the other nominees will you? In any other year Emma Stone might be Oscar night's upset special. A talented ingenue who has delighted audiences and the industry for a number of years with great roles in "The Help," "Superbad" and "Easy A," she's the sort of contender the Academy usually wants to anoint on Oscar night. In "Birdman" she gives an underrated turn (yes, we realize that it sounds ridiculous to call an Academy Award nominee "underrated") as a daughter who sill hasn't figured herself out, but has enough street smarts to realize her father may be in a very strange place. If there is any sort of upset Sunday night, Stone would be a part of it. »
