While the onslaught of award show season has finally come to an end, and the fashion industry’s biggest event of the year the Met Gala has come and gone with all of its avant garde creations, there’s still one final momentous red carpet event standing between every celebrity, model, and It Girl until they can officially go on a much deserved vacation, and that’s Cannes. And while a number of supermodels have already descended upon the seaside town for the annual film festival, the A-listers are only now just packing up their couture and boarding their private jets. »

“King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” surpassed Warner Bros.’ modest expectations by revealing itself as a full-on belly flop, grossing $14.7 million. While nothing else approaches its level of disaster, it’s a beacon for the weaknesses that have begun to plague summer 2017.
Next week, expect Fox’s “Alien: Covenant” to lead three new summer entries. Ridley Scott’s return to his 1979 classic opened to $42 million in a majority of the world (but not China, among other territories); it will need to soar next weekend at home in order to restore some confidence to the industry.

A post shared by Rande Gerber (@randegerber) on May 8, 2017 at 6:43am Pdt George Clooney turned 56 on May 6, and he celebrated in style thanks to his wife, Amal. The human rights attorney, who is pregnant with twins, threw the Money Monster actor a surprise party at their home in London on Saturday. George's friends Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber flew from La to London last week to help Amal get things ready for the party. "Amal set it all up, and Rande and Cindy surprised George when he got home Saturday," E! News reports. "When George pulled into his driveway, Rande came from around the bushes driving George's lawnmower and pulled up beside George's car while Cindy was nearby in the garden cutting fresh flowers."

04.27.17: This list is now final. While I may in the future see additional films that were released in the awards year of 2016, no more films will be added to this list. (I may add links to reviews of films listed here.)
This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

George Clooney is failing the baby name game -- at least, according to his wife, Amal.
While promoting the trailer for his latest directorial project, Suburbicon, at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the 55-year-old actor chatted with Et's Kevin Frazier about the impending arrival of his twins, expected in June.
"I don't know how you fully digest [having two], but I'm excited," the first-time father-to-be told Et. "It will be fun."
Clooney joked that he considered naming the children after his thriving tequila company, Casamigos, but the idea was quickly vetoed by Amal. "My wife says I can't name them Casa and Amigos. That's the one thing I'm not allowed to do," he said.
The Oscar winner added, "It was just a thought. I mean, you know, it's a family business."

George Clooney has a handle on fatherhood!
The Money Monster star spoke to Extra while promoting his new movie Suburbicon at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, saying he and his attorney-wife Amal, 39, are preparing for the arrival of their twins.

In true friend fashion, Matt Damon is keeping parenthood tabs on a few of his Hollywood pals.
The Oscar winner confessed that while Clooney, 55, is often overly prepared on set, he is still prepping for this whole first-time fatherhood thing. The news broke in early February that Clooney and his wife, Amal, are expecting twins in June.
"He's going to get prepared," the Suburbicon star told Et. "He better figure it out, 'cause they're on the way. But he'll be great. He'll be a mess, but [Amal] will take care of everything."

As keen Black Mirror fans wait for the fourth season to land on Netflix later in the year, some interesting information about those upcoming episodes has slowly emerged through various sources.

Dressed in his signature black Armani tuxedo and bow tie, Clooney looked dashing next to his wife, who showed off her baby bump in a fitted white gown tapered with an ombré of ostrich feathers.
