Emma Watson Named Artist With Most Influential Haircut in 2011

28 December 2011 11:26 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Emma Watson has been named by Wall Street Journal as one of the celebrities who has the most influential haircut of the year. The "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" star scores "the fastest-rising searches for celebrity haircuts on Google," thanks to her new pixie hairstyle.

The other young public figure who has the most popular haircut is none other than Justin Bieber, who was famously known for his hair flip at the beginning of his career. Aside from his look and voice, the Canadian popstar was also idolized by the tweens for his "swish" hairstyle.

Beside naming who have the influential hairstyles, Wall Street Journal has also picked its choices for the "Most Spectacular Bridal Fiasco" and the "Biggest Runway Flop". Kim Kardashian got the former title due to her short-lived fairytale wedding, while Kanye West was named the latter through his debut at the Paris Fashion Week earlier this year. »

Next Factor: Ezra Miller of 'We Need to Talk About Kevin'

5 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Ezra Miller seems to have the market cornered on troubled and troublemaking teens on the indie movie scene, ever since appearing in 2008's "Afterschool." His career, however, is about to power up with the release of critical darling "We Need to Talk About Kevin," starring Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly as the parents of a terrifying tot turned Columbine-style killer -- played by Miller, natch.

Age: 18

Hometown: Hoboken, NJ

What He's Done: He was an Internet perv in "Afterschool," a fan of large ladies in "City Island," a gay teen in "Every Day," and a self-styled Hunter S. Thompson journalist in "Beware the Gonzo."

What He's Doing Now: As the Kevin everyone needs to talk about, he creeps out his mom (Tilda Swinton), who wonders if her inability to bond with her child is what led him to become such an effing psycho.

Harry Potter Retrospective: Part 8: The Deathly Hallows Part 2

4 December 2011 7:41 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To celebrate the release of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part II on DVD and Blu-Ray, we conclude this epic retrospective with a look at that very film. The excitement, the tears, the (occasionally unintentional) laughs, HPatDHp2 is the finale we hoped it would be. Join me, won’t you, as we conclude our Harry Potter retrospective.

Also, Daniel Radcliffe gets his top off. Splendid.

We start with a recap of the dying moments of part 1, as Voldemort robs Dumbledore’s grave and claims the Elder Wand, then shoots his silvery load into the sky. And that’s all you get by way of a recap. Haven’t seen the previous films? You may, May, not understand all that occurs. But you will get to see Emma Watson in a corset. So, y’know, swings and roundabouts.

Events pick up right where we left them, with Harry burying »

Where Should Emma Watson Go from Here?

24 November 2011 1:00 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

With all the hype surrounding Michelle Williams’s turn as Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn," you’d be forgiven for forgetting that the film marks a turning point for another actress in the project. With her first on-screen role since wrapping the "Harry Potter" series, Emma Watson makes the leap from the franchise that won her fame and fortune.

Is this the start of a burgeoning career for the young British beauty? For Watson, that all depends on how she plays the game.

In "Marilyn," Watson turns in a charming performance as a costume girl on set of "The Prince and the Showgirl"; she falls for Colin Clark, an ambitious assistant on set. The role is small and doesn't offer Watson much to do other than play scorned when Clark sets his sights on Monroe, but Watson carries the bit part off with relative ease and leaves a good, »

Emma Watson Enjoys Her Study at Oxford

22 November 2011 12:53 AM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Emma Watson was thrilled to get back to her hometown and continue her third academic year in the University of Oxford. When being interviewed at the London premiere of her new movie "My Week with Marilyn", she said, "It's really nice. Just to have that steady routine and back being home, being around people I love and doing what I love."

Although being occupied with her loaded school work, Watson was still able to squeeze her schedule to do some movies. The British actress said, "I'm studying and really excited about my next projects." The star of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower", however, refused to explain further, "I can't really talk about them right now, but I am going to try and fit in some film projects next year in between school."

Then, Watson talked about her supporting role as Marilyn Monroe's assistant in the Michelle Williams-starring movie. »

Just two days ago, we brought you the news about Kristen Stewart (Snow White and the Huntsman) being in negotiations to take on the lead female role of Kei in the Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown) directed live-action adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo‘s graphic novel Akira.

Just a bit before that announcement, we brought you a story about Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and Alden Ehrenreich (Running Wild, Tetro) both reportedly reading for the part of Tetsuo, Kaneda’s (Garrett Hedlund) best friend, and a young man with telekinetic abilities who becomes a dangerous weapon.

Ezra Miller Will Not Be In 'Akira'

18 November 2011 12:45 PM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

While we’re seeing a ton of American comics get made into movies, the idea of an anime or manga getting to the big screen through Hollywood is more of a rarity. That said, things are getting serious with the planned adaptation of “Akira,” and there’s lots of talk about who will be playing whom.

Earlier this week we reported on some of the possible actors and how a number of names are being suggested for the role of Tetsuo. Well, at least now there can be one fewer name on the list: Ezra Miller has said it’s a no-go for him.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower” actor spoke to Moviefone about the rumors and squashed them. "It's not true," he said about being cast. "That, I can assure you, will not be a reality."

It sounds as if he likes the story of “Akira,” but feels »

A Few New Pics Of Emma Watson & Logan Lerman In 'The Perks Of Being A Wallflower'

15 November 2011 10:12 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Stephen Chbosky’s “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” is one of those incredibly popular books that you’ve either read yourself, or know a bunch of people who swear by it. The young adult novel is getting a big screen adaptation, written and directed by Chbosky himself, with Summit releasing the film sometime in 2012. A small handful of new pictures are up from the film, and it looks like a lot of young, romantic longing and wallflower-esque behavior. Emma Watson and Logan Lerman -- looking poignant and thoughtful -- lead the film about a shy, unpopular teenager (Lerman) who, through a series of letters to an anonymous person, explores his awkward adolescence, including drug use, abuse and sexuality in 1991 Pittsburgh.  »

#48. The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky I'd normally be weary of the results when a novelist gets behind a camera to adapt their own project, but Stephen Chbosky's first outing as a director (1995's The Four Corners of Nowhere) premiered at the fest and he should get to bring his sophomore project based on his 1999 novel. Will The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a novel about an unconventional thinker be unconventional in design? If so, then this might. along with its huge cast receive an invite to the fest's Premieres section. Gist: Based on the novel written by Stephen Chbosky, this is about 15-year-old Charlie (Logan Lerman), an endearing and naive outsider, coping with first love (Emma Watson), the suicide of his best friend, and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs.

7 November 2011 7:57 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

"Akira" continues its violent rampage towards the big screen, with director Jaume Collet-Serra's adaptation of the widely loved anime and manga setting its sights on numerous actors. Garrett Hedlund is reportedly the man to play Kaneda, and now we're hearing word on who could star as his best pal, Tetsuo.

The Hollywood Reporter identifies Ezra Miller ("We Need to Talk About Kevin," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower") and Alden Ehrenreich ("Tetro," "Stoker") as the names popping up most frequently in connection to Tetsuo, the telekinetic teen who becomes the driving force of much of the action as "Akira" barrels forward.

Both Miller and Ehrenreich aren't exactly household names just yet, though they're sure to make their mark in the coming weeks and months. Miller's work as a troubled teenager who spearheads a high school killing spree in "We Need to Talk About Kevin" has been getting rave reviews »

Emma Watson has found love with a fellow university student after recently starting classes in her native Britain, according to a U.K. report.

Wanderlust movie trailer and images

Trailer and images for Wanderlust, starring Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston and Malin Akerman This one looks like a real stinker, maybe the ending of the trailer is fitting, you'll see what I mean. The Universal Pictures release opens February 24, 2012, and also includes Justin Theroux, Kathryn Hahn, Lauren Ambrose, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Alan Alda. Ken Marino & David Wain wrote the script for the comedy helmed by Wain which is rated R for sexual content, graphic nudity, language and drug use. Both Rudd and Aniston seem monotone for the most part, struggling to star in anything that doesn't flop lately. Rudd's starred in three successive lackluster and annoying films - Dinner for Schmucks, How Do You Know and Our Idiot Brother, and this is set to mark a fourth. Still, maybe The Perks of Being a Wallflower with Rudd »

Casting Bits: Casey Affleck in Whitey Bulger Biopic, Dylan McDermott in ‘Dog Fight’, Gabriel Byrne, Rufus Sewell, and Toby Stephens in ‘All Things to All Men’

27 October 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] It was announced [2] earlier this week that Ben Affleck and longtime pal Matt Damon would reunite for a biopic about Whitey Bulger, with Casey Affleck set to co-star. We now have a more information about the younger Affleck's part. He'll be playing Bill Bugler, little brother of Whitey Bugler (Damon's role). Unlike notorious gangster Whitey, Billy was an upstanding member of society -- Korean war vet, lawyer, politician, and educator. He lost his post as the president of the University of Massachusetts in 2003 when he was found to have spoken with his fugitive brother in secret. In addition to starring, Damon will also script the film; Affleck the Elder will direct and co-star. It's unclear when exactly the picture will get off the ground, as both brothers and Damon have plenty of other projects on their plates. But they'll have to get moving if they want to beat the two »
