The 26-year-old, who is currently starring on Broadway in "Gigi," stopped by the Bravo clubhouse for "Watch What Happens Live" on Thursday -- and got candid in a series of questions about her Bff, Selena Gomez, with host Andy Cohen. During the show the "High School Musical" alum was asked if she helped her "Spring Breakers" costar avoid her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, during the 2015 Met Gala earlier this month. Although the actress didn't give too much away ... it definitely sounds like she had Gomez's back at the high-fashion event! "She's one of my best friends, and you just want to have your girlfriend's backs so that's what I did," she revealed. "We didn't like try to avoid him or anything, but no one really want to see your ex-boyfriend!" Aside from the Jelena questions, Andy didn't let the brunette beauty get away without at »

So I’d kind of, like, throw her in there,” she admitted to host Andy Cohen. “I’d kind of, like, dodge out. I’d, like, opt to kiss her … I was happy that I had Ashley there with me, because I had, »

Cannes – Marvel Comics changed the face of Hollywood. Can legendary L.A. graphic novel publisher Humanoids now do something of the same for Europe?
Driving into international English-language live-action genre with American or international cast via a three-pic deal with Paris-based Full House, set up by former Wild Bunch and Films Distribution execs, the sweep of its ambition, France’s biggest genre push since Luc Besson, is fast becoming clear.
The slate takes in production pacemakers such as Spain’s Apaches Ent., behind Juan Antonio Bayona’s “The Impossible” and Liam Neeson-starrer “A Monster Calls,” as well as L.A. based Muse, producer of “Spring Breakers” and now “London Fields” with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
Outside Full House, Humanoids — whose movie production is headed by CEO Fabrice Giger and Pierre Spengler, producer of Ilya Salkind’s “Superman” trilogy, announced April 20 a multipic production deal with China’s Jetavana, »

Reclusive small town locksmith Angelo Manglehorn has never quite recovered from losing the love of his life, Clara. Fixated on her memory, he feels closer to his beloved cat than the people around him and prefers to find comfort in his work and daily routine. Still, he forges on with his tenuous human connections, maintaining intermittent contact with his son, taking misplaced pride in a former protégé gone astray, and establishing a cautious friendship with a kindhearted woman from the local bank. As this solitary man approaches the possibility of new love, he finds himself at a crossroads between remaining consumed by the past and embracing the present. Manglehorn is a movingly humanistic portrait of a man rendered with unsentimental simplicity and idiosyncratic humor.

“Yet the punctum shows no preference for morality or good taste; the punctum can be ill-bred.” —Roland Barthes, Camera LucidaThe first rude challenge of this movie is watching it without permanently devaluing Spring Breakers as a hot, precious high-conceptualist mess compared to the crisp genre elegance on parade here. I can’t be certain, but it seems like Harmony Korine dreamed up his movie drowsing behind his shades during a matinee reverie of this insta-classic. If not, he should have! The plot has a documentary-like simplicity. Maybe it really happened. Ancestral fish-freaks buzzsaw into the thumping “sexy-time” heart of American youth culture, during a Spring Break weekend on a desert lake in Arizona. That’s it. The Sayles/Dante original, recall if you must, was a lame anti-authoritarian parable (the seminal proto-SyFy Channel movie) with occasional dark comic touches. Piranha 3D is not a parable of anything, thank Corman! It »

Years before nabbing acting accolades for 127 Hours and pushing boundaries with The Interview, James Franco was deep-frying potatoes and flipping burgers at his local McDonald's. The Spring Breakers star, 37, shared his history with the fast-food chain in a new Washington Post op-ed, in which he voiced his love and support for the Golden Arches. Franco sounded off on McDonald's at a time when the company has been struggling to reclaim its spot in the casual dining food chain. "McDonald’s sales have slumped," Franco began in his [...] »
You'll never look at Miley Cyrus and Zoe Kravitz the same again! The "Wrecking Ball" singer and the "Insurgent" star strip down to the skivvies for Lolawolf‘s "Bitch" music video, where they proceed to smoke blunts and take scantily-clad pics of each others’ butts in a hotel bathroom. The pair even plays with toy guns and sits down for a game of cards (with a Hannah Montana deck, of course!) as they lip sync to the catchy track. The video, which was directed by Trouble Andrew, has a "Spring Breakers" vibe that will make you want to pop some champagne -- check it out above! The dynamic duo stepped out together at the 2015 Met Gala on Monday night, with both ladies sporting punk-inspired looks from Alexander Wang. We initially thought it was odd that they were posing for pictures together on the red carpet, but now it all makes »

Read More: Sundance Review: 'Tangerine' is a Charming Buddy Comedy About Transgender Prostitutes in L.A. Yesterday, Indiewire exclusively premiered the retro poster for Sean Baker's Sundance smash "Tangerine." Today comes the first trailer, courtesy of distributor Magnolia Pictures. While the poster is moody and dreamlike, the new Red Band trailer is anything but.

Here's Magnolia's official synopsis for "Tangerine": It's Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee (newcomer Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) is back on the block.

All week our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. I’m here today to argue that 2012 was the greatest year in cinema. I know you’re thinking: is she insane? How will she even begin to argue such a ridiculous theory? Sure, 2012 didn't bring us Vertigo or Citizen Kane or Chinatown or whatever, but it Was the year Spring Breakers came out, so I think it’s time you showed some respect. Just kidding, just kidding, calm down. The truth is, it really was the best year in cinema and here is why: Jennifer Lawrence. 2012 was the year J-Law rose to superstardom and showed the world how insanely talented she is in two very different but equally special films: Silver Linings Playbook and Hunger Games, the coolest dystopian film of our generation, and a creative, »
