Tokyo, Oct 10 (Ians/Efe) The 10th edition of Japan's Latin Beat Film Festival began here with a screening of "Los amantes pasajeros" (I'm So Excited), the latest from acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar.
Twenty films in all will be shown in Tokyo over the course of a week before a scaled-down version of the event takes to the road for stints in Kyoto and Yokohoma before concluding Nov 10 in Osaka.
"It's like a metaphor: just as in Almodovar's film, in which the plane travels to Mexico, it's the time to look toward Latin America. There, interesting things. »

Turns out Hilty didn't have to go far for her next gig, which is doubly-infused with Smash DNA since she's sticking with the Peacock for Sean Saves The World, a new sitcom co-starring Sean Hayes, who made a lasting impression on Smash fans with his manic season two guest spot.
ETonline caught up with Hilty at July's The Television Critics Association Press Tour to talk about her second TCA in under a year, learn that comedy is more her speed and reflect on the tumultuous experience that was Smash.
ETonline: You were at TCA in January to promote Smash and now you're here with a new show. Is it a strange experience to be promoting a second show in less than a year »
Demi Lovato is writing her first book. The 21-year-old singer announced earlier today that she will be publishing an inspirational guide, entitled Staying Strong. "I'm so excited to finally let you know what the big news was," the X Factor judge says in a video she posted online. "I will be releasing a book called Staying Strong. One of the things that has helped me in recovery is taking every day one day at a time and I'm a firm believer in starting out the day right with an inspirational quote and sort of a morning meditation. So I've put together 365 of my favorite quotes and a little morning meditation for everybody." Lovato added, "It's just something that I'm »

Deep male cleavage, Brucie's gagstipation – and no real drama. It's business as usual on Strictly
I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it. I'm about to lose control, and I think I like it … Not me, no; I'd say I feel indifferent at best. That's the song – you know, by the Pointer Sisters – the contestants are emerging to at the start of this Strictly Come Dancing (BBC1, Saturday) opener. With a lot of pops and flashes and resultant fug. So much fug! Perhaps they're fumigating them, too, on the sly, because there's a Hairy Biker among this year's batch, and no one wants to catch anything off him.
Who else? More of the usual TV folk, mostly. Corrie, Hollyoaks, Casualty, Waterloo Road, Countdown, BBC Breakfast, The Vanessa Show (ha, remember?) all represented. And a lady Dragon, hoping to show a more fun side, she says. It couldn't be a »

Appearances are everything.
We discuss burlesque, future projects and of course her (shoulda won an Oscar) performance in the instant cult classic American Mary (review).
Tristan blew me away with her outstanding role as Beatress Johnson, a Betty Boop look-a-like, in American Mary but she really stole my heart when Twisted Twins, Jen and Sylvia Soska introduced me to this ball of talent at a party the night before we filmed this little video. From the second you meet her you just want to squeeze her she's so cute!
Just before we started filming I asked Tristan if she could talk like Beatress the entire interview. Not only did she jump right into character but she was excited to do so, as if »

Hannibal – Series 1 Blu-ray review
Hannibal is one of the unexpected recent highlights of U.S. TV crime drama. Inspired by Thomas Harris’ series of novels featuring the urbane maniac Hannibal Lector, the show reinvigorates a tired brand in a wholly enthralling way – and in a manner that’s not for the squeamish.
Hannibal is actually a prequel to the first Harris book to feature Lector, Red Dragon. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), an almost supernaturally gifted but psychologically fragile profiler and instructor at the FBI’s Quantico training facility, is drafted by Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), head of the Behavioural Science Unit, to assist with difficult cases. Crawford is well aware of the danger he exposes Graham to by asking him to immerse himself in the minds of killers, so he enlists the assistance of psychiatrist Hannibal Lector (Mads Mikkelson) to monitor Graham’s mental state »

Travis Wall was a fan-favorite during season two (and that year's runner-up) of So You Think You Can Dance, but it wasn't until he began choreographing for the show that fans truly began to understand the depths of his talent. In the same instant that Jason caught Jeanine as she spiraled through the air, Travis snatched our hearts and hasn't stopped putting them through an emotional two-minute wringer for the last five seasons.
As a result of his groundbreaking work, Wall has earned three Emmy nominations for Outstanding Choreography, and this year, all the nominees in his category -- Derek Hough & Allison Holker, Warren Carlyle, Sonya Tayeh, Mandy Moore and Napoleon Dumo & Tabitha Dumo -- will combine their tremendous gifts to create a routine for the Emmy stage! I caught up with Wall to talk about his accomplishments on the current Sytycd season and find out what it means to be an Emmy nominee!

In cinemas, the gruellingly authentic Danish drama A Hijacking (2012, Arrow, 15) may have appeared a tad televisual, but on DVD its low-key verité aesthetic pays dramatic dividends. When the commercial vessel Mv Rosen is overrun by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean, it falls to Pilou Asbaek's increasingly desperate ship's cook Mikkel to negotiate ransom terms with his boss back in Denmark. Passing swiftly over the hijacking itself (which would doubtless form the action-packed centrepiece of an equivalent Hollywood production), writer-director Tobias Lindholm lingers instead upon the excruciating aftermath in which fleetingly abrupt radio communications are interspersed with lengthy bouts of awful dead silence.
Instructed by professional negotiators to play hardball on the subject of money, the company's tough but proud CEO (Søren Malling – brilliant) struggles to remain calm and detached – the key to his employees survival. Meanwhile the pirates' own »

There's a story circulating about how the creators of the sequel to Finding Nemo have drastically changed the film's marine park-set finale after seeing Blackfish. They're not expecting this small documentary and a Pixar blockbuster to have much of a crossover audience, rather this decision (unusually for Hollywood) seems to be prompted by conscience rather than commerce. After seeing Gabriela Cowperthwaite's film you can see why they changed their minds. Cowperthwaite was inspired to make the film after Dawn Brancheau, an experienced SeaWorld trainer, was killed while working with a whale named Tilikum. She delves into the past and charts Tilikum's traumatic life, from his capture right up to Brancheau's death, and tries to understand why, of the four deaths caused by killer whales in captivity (none have been recorded in the wild »

"The Twilight Saga" author Stephenie Meyer made some waves in a recent interview where she admitted that she is "so over" the franchise that made her a household name. While promoting her new film "Austenland," Meyer told Variety of "Twilight," "I get further away every day. I am so over it. For me, it's not a happy place to be."
Fans who have invested years in Meyer's work were not especially happy to hear these words. From the way it sounds, Meyer was writing off not only the books she wrote but the movies that made Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson two of the most popular actors on the planet. Now Meyer has come forward to explain what she meant by her statements.
"Even those of you who love 'Twilight' the most (in fact, especially those who love it the most) have probably noticed that there's been just a teensy »
