Listen to the Corpse Club Discuss The Ruins and Piranha 3D on a New Episode of Daily Dead’s Podcast

Vacation is supposed to be the time of your life, not the fight for your life, but that's exactly what happens for the unlucky characters in The Ruins (2008) and Piranha 3D (2010), the subjects of a new episode of Daily Dead's official podcast.

Vacations get vicious on a new episode of Daily Dead's official podcast, as co-hosts Heather Wixson, Scott Drebit, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James put on their sun screen and gather around the microphones to discuss two very different vacation-gone-wrong horror movies: The Ruins (2008) and Piranha 3D (2010). The co-hosts discuss the under-your-skin scares and palpable paranoia of Carter Smith's feature film debut, as well as the underwater horrors and twisted sense of humor in Alexandre Aja's 2010 horror comedy. The water's a little bloody, but we promise it feels just fine, so sit back, relax, and enjoy a new episode of the Corpse Club... just don't get too close to the flowers!

Julia Roberts on Raising Teenagers, Dealing With Grief and the Secret to Feeling Great at 50
Julia Roberts is loving life.

The Oscar-winning superstar covers InStyle magazine's December issue, and candidly opens up about hitting personal milestones. Roberts and husband Danny Moder celebrated 15 years of marriage in July, and she turned 50 on Oct. 28.

“I always love my birthday,” she says. "There’s nothing different about this birthday than any other one.”

She also points out the double standard she sees when reporters ask her about turning 50 in a negative light.

“Are we still in that space? Did anyone go over this with George Clooney or Brad [Pitt] before their 50th birthdays?” she notes.

Roberts looks radiant on the cover, sporting a simple all-denim outfit. The actress keeps her advice simple when it comes to looking and feeling great.

Amy Schumer on Where She Gets Her Confidence: ‘My Parents Made Me Think I Was a Genius Supermodel’

Amy Schumer on Where She Gets Her Confidence: ‘My Parents Made Me Think I Was a Genius Supermodel’
Amy Schumer isn’t exactly the shrinking violet type. This is the woman, after all, who threw herself on the ground at Kimye’s feet, regularly discusses the finer points of her sex life and her secrets to preventing thigh chafe in front of audiences of thousands, and writes scathing satires and musical numbers about dismantling the patriarchy brick by brick. So now that InStyle has undergone a bold new relaunch of its own under the leadership of Laura Brown, it only makes sense that they would opt for the equally brazen comedian to inaugurate their first ever beauty issue,

Alicia Keys Opens Up About Redefining Beauty, How Motherhood Has Changed Her: 'This Is Me, Love Me or Hate Me'

Alicia Keys Opens Up About Redefining Beauty, How Motherhood Has Changed Her: 'This Is Me, Love Me or Hate Me'
Alicia Keys really is a "Girl on Fire."

Fresh-faced and rocking her natural curls, the 36-year-old singer glows on the cover of Glamour's March Activism issue. In her accompanying interview with the magazine, Keys gets candid on redefining beauty, how motherhood has changed her and what she wishes she could tell her younger self.

Watch: Alicia Keys Performs 'Girl on Fire' at Women's March on Washington

Keys, who's been going makeup-free for over a year, admits that there has been "such an evolution" with beauty. "Right now the way I define beauty is individuality and wisdom, which I think creates a certain inner confidence," she explains. "And not confidence in a way that's only on the surface, but a deep-down knowing of yourself or settling into who you are."

She notes that down the road, however, all "might change" as she gets older.

"I guess I've come to terms that life is going

Go Behind-the-Scenes of Keith Urban's 'Blue Ain't Your Color' Video Shoot
Keith Urban wanted just the right mix when it came to making the video for "Blue Ain't Your Color," the song he describes as "basically a waltz with this kind of doo wop thing to it." "Approaching how we would do a video for this song started really with trying to see how we could keep the simplicity of the song represented visually in a video and yet keep it sort of a little ambiguous so a viewer can feel their own story within the song," says Urban in the behind-the-scenes footage of the video.

'Lois Lane' In "Allure"

Take a look @ new images of actress Amy Adams, aka 'Lois Lane' in "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", covering the April 2016 issue of "Allure" fashion magazine, photographed by Carter Smith:

"'Lois' is still sort of like the key to the information," said Adams.

"She’s the girl going out and getting it and figuring it out and putting it together and all of that, so she’s very much involved, but I kind of leave the heavy lifting to the boys, you know? So to speak."

About the addition of Gal Gadot as 'Wonder Woman' to the new film, Adams said, "They always think that if you put in another woman and automatically… ‘Catfight!’

"...I think that’s a male fantasy thing. I don’t think that’s reality."

"It’s exciting to get to bring in all these other characters and I was really excited that Gal was involved.

Best of Fest: Sundance 2016’s Top 10 New Faces

  • IONCINEMA.com
Yesterday, Nicholas Bell and I issued our Top 10 New Voices, and now we launch into our New Faces. They range in age, amount of screen time, and in this year’s batch of New Faces made memorable turns in supporting or principle character roles. Narrowly breaking into our top ten list we have names such as Sand Storm‘s Lammis Ammar and Spa Night‘s Haerry Kim. Here is our top ten countdown.

#10. Royalty HightowerThe Fits.

Move over Creed. The youngest featured actress to be profiled in our ten set was embraced in Park City as the next “it” personality and for good reason. In Anna Rose Holmer’s debut, Royalty Hightower’s Toni has a lot of volume – she physically inhabits a character who is at odds with her burgeoning teenagehood (a transition that is not always welcomed) in a performance that empathically comes across as non-actingly natural.

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Dan Kwan & Daniel Scheinert’s Swiss Army Man

Receiving wall-to-wall support from the Sundance Institute participating in a fivesome of labs all in 2014 (the January Screenwriters Lab, Directors Lab, Music and Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Sound, Creative Producing Summit and finally, the June Screenwriters Lab), music-video director (Foster the People and the Shins) tandem Dan Kwan & Daniel Scheinert made ’14 a true year to connect with the Sundance folk by submitting Possibilia (a 16 parallel universe world with Zoe Jarman and Alex Karpovsky playing tumultuous lovers) in the New Frontier section. Featured in Filmmaker Magazine Top 25 Faces, production on Swiss Army Man took place this past July and surely got submitted in rough form. While their trio noteworthy topliners in Daniel Radcliffe, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Paul Dano suggest a certain clout, it’s the equal promise of visual cleverness (see this hypnotic award-winning video) and wide-ranging possibilities for where they might take the genre (it may draw comparisons

Ultimate Horror Poll: All the honorable mentions that didn't make the cut

Ultimate Horror Poll: All the honorable mentions that didn't make the cut
In our ongoing recap of last week's Ultimate Horror Poll -- in which over 100 genre experts helped determine the 100 greatest horror movies of all time by voting for their personal "ten best" -- the time has come to take stock of every honorable mention and clarification given by the survey's participants that weren't included in the original piece. To be clear, voters weren't asked for honorable mentions specifically; but a handful felt strongly enough about their "bubbling under" choices to list them anyway (which proved extraordinarily useful in helping break ties on the Top 100). See below for a full listing, as well as explanations from Bloody-Disgusting founder/editor-in-chief Brad Miska and director Corin Hardy ("The Hallow") on why they voted the way they did. Honorable Mentions: Barbara Crampton (Actor, "Re-Animator") Dracula (1931) Jaws (1975) Nosferatu (1922) Poltergeist (1982) Vampyr (1932) Brad Miska (Founder/Editor-in-Chief, Bloody-Disgusting.com; Producer) -- See Full Explanations Below Beetlejuice (1988) Bill & Ted's

Another Look at Cindy Crawford and Her Family's Envy-Inducing Lake Vacation
You may remember Cindy Crawford and her family posting picture-perfect moments from their Summer lake vacation on Instagram back in July, and now we're getting another look at their idyllic trip. Photographer Carter Smith joined them at their Ontario home to capture the annual getaway for the September issue of Vogue, which features Beyoncé on the cover. Cindy's husband, Rande Gerber, said, "It's the only time of year when the kids don't turn on the television or pick up their phones." Instead, the stylish family of four spends their days waterskiing, doing puzzles, boating at sunset, and casually meeting friends dockside. The yearly getaway is certainly one celebrity vacation to be a little jealous about, but Cindy and Rande have since gone on their next adventure - a trip to Ibiza for the Spanish launch of Rande's Casamigos tequila brand with pal George Clooney.

Julianne Hough is Fresh Faced on the Allure April 2015 Cover

Giving Ryan Seacrest another reason to kick himself, Julianne Hough is stunning for the April 2015 cover of Allure magazine.

The “Dancing With the Stars” alum is picture perfect in her Valentino sequined bodysuit as she poses for the lens of famed photographer Carter Smith.

And in her interview, Julianne tries to clear up her Halloween 2013 snafu during which she dressed up as African American character “Crazy Eyes” from “Orange is the New Black.” “Ignorance is sometimes not bliss; I really had no idea what I was doing, and it was all out of fun and respect for the character. I don’t even know how to talk about it because it’s such a sensitive topic. It makes me so sad to think that I was that dumb. I learned a big lesson.”

‘Whiplash’ Wins Grand Prize and Audience Nods At Deauville
Deauville, France– Damien Chazelle’s Sundance hit “Whiplash” won the Grand Prize and Audience nod at the 40th Deauville film festival which wrapped on Saturday night with a gala ceremony.

Reese Witherspoon starrer “The Good Lie” snatched up the Jury Prize and David Robert Mitchell’s “It Follows” nabbed the Critics’ nod. “It Follows” world-premiered at Cannes’ Critics Week.

This year’s jury almost exclusively comprised previous jury presidents: Cannes prexy Pierre Lescure, and helmers Claude Lelouch, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Andre Techine and Costa-Gavras.

The 40th-anniversary award, originally conceived for James Cameron who was a no-show, was finally given to Saar Klen’s “Things People Do” with Jason Isaacs and Wes Bentley.

Ana Lily Amirpour’s “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” won the Cartier prize for best film from the Revelation jury — comprising Audrey Dana, Anne Beres, Lola Bessis, Christine & the Queens, Freddie Highmore and Clemence Poesy.

Teen Angst Is in the Air During the Brooding Jamie Marks Is Dead

Teen Angst Is in the Air During the Brooding Jamie Marks Is Dead
Supernatural teen angst and romance are in the chilly air of fashion photographer-turned-filmmaker Carter Smith’s (The Ruins) brooding and mostly naturalistic psychodrama, ripped from the pages of Christopher Barzak’s young-adult novel One for Sorrow. The naked corpse of Jamie Marks (Noah Silver, looking like Harry Potter’s sinister doppelgänger) is found under a creek bridge in upstate New York, stumbled upon by rock-collecting loner Gracie (Homeland’s Morgan Saylor). Also profoundly affected: Adam (Shameless’s Cameron Monaghan), a stoic ginger and cross-country track star who witnessed his teammates bullying Jamie but never stepped up to befriend or defend him. Brought together by their mutual empathy and...
