Scott Eastwood may be the romantic lead of Nicholas Sparks's upcoming film The Longest Ride, but don't call him a sex symbol. "I don't know what that means. That's silly," he tells People. "Honestly, I grew up in California. I'm just one of the guys. And there are so many good-looking guys in California!" What's serious is Eastwood's appeal as a bull-riding cowboy in the film, which parallels the lives of two couples - one in present day, the other in the World War II era. The 28-year-old was drawn to the role because "he wasn't just a guy »

Most of us expect wild things to happen on our twenty-first birthdays. Typically, you figure it’s going to be something involving a record quantity of alcohol, a whole bunch of your friends, and, quite possibly, years worth of stories that you don’t actually remember occurring.
Axl Johnson assumed his twenty-first birthday would happen exactly along those lines. He lives in a house with a couple of his friends and he’s not far from his older brother Mike. He thinks his birthday will follow a fairly typical progression, until his brothers insist that he go out into the woods with them for a special birthday ceremony. Axl has no idea what’s in store for him.
His brothers proceed to inform him that they’re incarnations of Norse Gods. Mike is the God of Games, Ullr. Anders is Bragi, God of Poetry. Ty is Hodr. Then there’s Cousin Olaf, »
Argentine helmer Martin Rejtman makes a predictably unpredictable return to features after a 10-year hiatus with “Two Shots Fired,” a nearly uncategorizable seriocomedy whose string of non sequiturs oddly mimics life’s implausibilities, without the emotion. Opening with a teen’s unmotivated attempt at self-destruction, which illogically engenders no physical consequences, the pic picks up on various family members and their extended circles, dropping storylines and characters with studied disregard for narrative arcs. Rejtman (“Rapado,” “The Magic Gloves”) doesn’t really go anywhere with the concept, yet there’s enough skill and amusement to hold fest audiences.
Surprisingly, given the deliberate removal of feeling or passion, viewers become attached to this likable group of people. Mariano (Rafael Federman), 16, comes home after dancing all night, mows the lawn, finds a gun in the tool shed, takes it to his bedroom and shoots himself twice, once in the head, once in the stomach. »

Over six and a half years, 21-year-old Rebecca Brown snapped 2,100 selfies, combining all of them into one fascinating time-lapse video. The UK-based student started the project back in 2007 when she was 14 years old, and she plans to continue "for as long as [she] can." In the video, Rebecca's style and features shift and mature, and she added powerful captions to certain frames to address what she was going through at the time. She candidly addressed her struggles with depression and trichotillomania, a hair-loss condition, and in a written Q&A, she notes, "Where does the smile go? Life happens, depression hit rather hard. I'm on the mend." Watch her compelling video above. »

It's so hard to say good-bye to yesterday, and to those traveling pants that kept four friends in touch over the long summer breaks. "Sisterhood Everlasting" will be the third and final movie in the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" series, based on the novels by Ann Brashares.
The movie takes place 10 years since the last time we checked in with Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget, and the gals are all grown up and almost 30. Not even pants have been able to keep them close, and not just because butt sizes wax and wane over the years. Life happens, babies happen, careers happen, and drama happens. In "Everlasting," Tibby invites everyone on a trip that's sure to give viewers "all the feels," as they say.
