Both Diego Boneta and Jackson Rathbone had big years in 2012, the former breaking out in the jukebox musical Rock of Ages and the latter putting on his vampire makeup for the last time in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, and now the two stars are joining forces for the new thriller The Dead Men. The Hollywood Reporter says that Kirk Sullivan, a longtime assistant to mega-producer Joel Silver, will be making his directorial debut with the film, which is based on a script by fellow newcomer Andrew Poston. The trade says that the story follows "an American running from his past who is brought into a group of young underground radicals called The Dead Men, only to discover a centuries-old spiritual battle." Sounds like there is definitely some kind of supernatural element in play - though it's hard to say what genre it will fall into. Unfortunately there is »

Her work outfit? An Alexander Wang sleeveless mini dress that showed off her already slimmer post-baby body -- and yet is "super-comfortable," she said. While the Rock of Ages actress, 35, looked healthy and glowing at the event, she griped [...] »

Cusack plays veteran CIA black ops agent Emerson Kent whose last mission went horrible wrong. He gets one last chance to prove he can still do his job when he’s assigned to guard Katherine (Akerman), a code operator at a top-secret remote CIA “Numbers Station” where encrypted messages are sent and received.
But, after an elite team of heavily armed assailants attack the station, Emerson and Katherine end up in a life-or-death struggle to stop the deadly plot.
The first screenplay by F. Scott Frazier, R-rated The Numbers Station was directed by Danish filmmaker Kasper Barfoed (The Candidate). Games of Thrones‘ Liam Cunningham and Hannah Murray and True Blood‘s Lucy Griffiths also star in the independent film.

The concept hardly sounds like a hit: a dance contest for unknowns often doing unusual dances. Yet Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," which launches its 10th season Tuesday and Wednesday, May 14 and 15, continues to tap into what eludes other dance shows: the purity of the art.
"There is no question they have not seen it all before," Nigel Lythgoe, executive producer and judge, tells Zap2it. "That is the joy of seeing dance develop. I do believe every season these kids get better and better. The one thing dancers have [over singers] is if you are tone-deaf, you still sound as bad as you did three or four years ago. If you are a dancer and train hard for three or four years, there is improvement."
"Everyone says, 'How are you going to tweak it?' " Lythgoe says. "The only way I would tweak it is possibly moving results to »
Funny thing about Tom Cruise: despite a strong push from Robert Downey Jr., Cruise is still among the biggest movie stars in the world. "Oblivion" and "Jack Reacher," Cruise's last two releases, both topped $200 million worldwide and his last "Mission: Impossible" film in 2011 hit $694 million around the globe. (A moment of silence here for the flop that was "Rock of Ages.")
Cruise's success won't slow down too much in the near future either: On Thursday, Warner Bros. moved Cruise's next film, an action thriller called "All You Need Is Kill," from its March 7, 2014 release date to June 6, 2014. That puts "All You Need Is Kill" in the thick of the summer movie season, a strong show of confidence for the Doug Liman film.
The reason Warner Bros. made the switch: "300: Rise of an Empire." The studio bumped the sequel to "300" from its Aug. 2, 2013 release date to March 7, 2014. That last-minute »

What a cutie! On Tuesday, Malin Akerman showed off her 3-week-old son, Sebastian Zincone, on Instagram. In the precious pic, Sebastian appears bemused as he gazes off intently.

This week: Tom Cruise tries making Rock of Ages up to us with Jack Reacher, Del Toro digs up another gem with Mama, and final goodbyes to Fringe and 30 Rock. ► The Tom Cruise reclamation project continued with Jack Reacher, the sly thriller based on the 2005 book ‘One Shot.’ Despite being one of his lowest-grossing movies worldwide in awhile, this is just what he needed after the ‘Rock of Ages’ »

While the varying results of "Rock Of Ages," "Jack Reacher" and "Oblivion" may suggest that Tom Cruise isn't always a guaranteed box office draw, at least within the franchise of "Mission: Impossible" he's unstoppable. "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" was the highest grossing of the bunch, reaching nearly $700 million worldwide, almost $150 million more than the next most successful effort, "Mission: Impossible II." Naturally, Paramount didn't waste any time in putting a sequel into development, and while that was over a year ago, the project is now beginning to come back to life. Deadline reports that Cruise has signed on to star and produce "Mission: Impossible 5" (subtitle to be determined), with Jj Abrams’ Bad Robot also throwing their weight in there as well. And that's about it at the moment folks. No word if Jeremy Renner or Paula Patton will return or who will direct. Christopher McQuarrie has long been »

Oscar-winning scene-chewer Al Pacino has abruptly vacated his role in Universal Pictures’ upcoming animated sequel Despicable Me 2 only two months before its release. It’s being reported that actor Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality, Traffic) will step in to assume the role left open by Pacino, which is that of the film’s antagonist El Macho.
The reason cited for Pacino’s departure is “creative differences,” naturally leaving everybody to question what sort of creative differences could arise while making an animated family film. Pacino has been known to go to the extreme with every character he plays, so it may be related to his technique. If I had to venture a guess, I would predict the directors were hoping for some of his Scarface intensity for the villain which perhaps Pacino was reluctant to provide. Again, your guess is as good as ours.
Despicable Me 2 has been a »

"Jekyll & Hyde" will call it curtains on May 12, seven weeks before it was originally slated to end its limited Broadway run. When the Victorian tale of duality closes it will have played for 15 previews and 30 regular performances.

Russell Brand will go to court to fight a $550,000 lawsuit. The 37-year-old comedian will head to court next May to take on Los Angeles security guard Victor Sneed, who is suing the 'Rock of Ages' hitmaker for $185,000 in damages after alleging he ran him over in his Range Rover last year. Russell - who was first sued for $25,000 by Victor in 2012 - has strongly denied the claims, but if he loses then legal fees could triple the $185,000 sum. The 'Get Him to the Greek' star - who only passed his driving test two years ago - claims Victor was the 'cause of the accident and any injuries he sustained', and blamed Victor »
Catherine Zeta-Jones is seeking treatment for her bipolar II disorder -- again. "Catherine has proactively checked into a health care facility," the Oscar winner's rep tells Us Weekly. "Previously Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner." (TMZ was first to break the story.) Zeta-Jones first announced her diagnosis in April 2011, when the Rock of Ages star checked into Connecticut's Silver Hill Hospital "after dealing with the stress of the past year," her rep [...] »
When Rocky looks for Adrian at the end of the first "Rocky," expect more gut-wrenching "Adriannnnnnnnnnn" in the broadway adaptation of the Oscar-winning film. Presented by Stage Entertainment USA and Sylvester Stallone, the show will begin performances on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theater in February of 2014 according to THR.
The stage version's book is written by the Tony-winning Thomas Meehan ("The Producers," "Hairspray") and the music is composed by Stephen Flaherty and lyricist Lynn Ahrens. The director is Alex Timbers with fight choreography by Steven Hoggett ("Once") and dance choreography by Kelly Devine ("Rock of Ages").
Here's what Stallone said about the Broadway production of his original story/screenplay, .I couldn.t be more proud or more excited about this production and how my original story of Rocky Balboa has been brought to spectacular life onstage." Stallone further said, .The story of Rocky was very much like my life »
The boxing drama - which premiered last year in Germany - will open at the Winter Garden Theatre with previews in February 2014, it was announced on Sunday (April 28).
The Rocky musical will be directed by Alex Timbers, and will be produced and presented by Stage Entertainment USA and Stallone.
"I couldn't be more proud or more excited about this production and how my original story of Rocky Balboa has been brought to spectacular life on stage," said Stallone.
The Rocky musical celebrated its world premiere last fall in Hamburg, Germany, opening to rave reviews.
An official opening is slated for March, with an exact premiere date yet to be announced. »
Broadway musicals should have a wow factor.
The latest version of "Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical" at the Marquis Theatre, offers up a lot of spectacles, but it never coalesces into a great show.
As hard as Constantine Maroulis works in the title roles, it is not enough, and it's unclear what else he could do. Maroulis, "American Idol" finalist, Season 4, and a Tony nominee for "Rock of Ages" is completely sincere as Dr. Jekyll and threatening as Mr. Hyde. His voice is up to the taxing role.
Deborah Cox, (Broadway's "Aida" and an R & B pop star) as Lucy, the prostitute, is excellent.
Yet this production feels as if the sets, which are interesting with holograms and projections, are more important than anything. The story remains the same, a physician researches the good and evil in man, to help his father, who is insane.
Dr. Henry Jekyll cannot risk trying »
I don’t even remember the first time I met Bob Morales. We might have met when he was an intern at the Village Voice and I was a freelance writer, but I have no memory of that. When I was publicity manager at DC Comics, he was always around. As a writer and editor – for Reflex, for Publishers Weekly, for Vibe – he was an invaluable asset for me to exploit.
But he was so much more.
Bob was a world-class gossip. If you read Bleeding Cool over the last 20 years, you’ve read one of Bob’s stories. He would, occasionally, let me use him to snipe at someone who was annoying me, on the condition that Bob agreed the person in question deserved it (he always agreed).
Bob was a brilliant writer, of comics and of prose. Most comics fans know him from his work on Captain America, »

Tom Cruise hasn’t had the best of luck movie-wise in recent years. With lacklustre performances from Jack Reacher, Rock Of Ages and Knight And Day, it’s good to see Joseph Kosinki’s Oblivion climbing to the top.
Over the weekend, the $120 million science fiction thriller opened in the Us garnering $38.2 million over the two days, which is a surprise considering the mediocre reviews which appeared before its release. However, this huge figure is a great improvement from Cruise’s past films – only four other Cruise capers have opened higher, three of those being Mission: Impossible flicks, the fourth being War Of The Worlds.
As for the rest of the world, Oblivion had already made $61.1 million over 52 territories, with another $33.6 million taken over the weekend. The film hasn’t yet opened in China or Japan, and we all know they Love a good bit of sci-fi!
