Ocean's 11 (1960)
Bullock plays Debbie Ocean in the Ocean's Eleven spinoff, with the film centering a heist at the Met Gala. The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow film also stars Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson and Anne Hathaway as the group's target.
Heists run in Ocean's family, with Bullock playing the sister to George Clooney's Danny Ocean of Ocean's 11 fame. (Clooney is not known to be in this film.) Debbie has had a long time to plan this heist — five years, eight...
There are no details on what the story for this film will entail, but judging by the title, it sounds like it could turn out to be a fun flick! It's the kind of title you would see for a grindhouse type film and I'm really curious to know what the story will entail. The title is similar to Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse film Planet Terror.
Soderbergh and Greer previously worked together on the upcoming psychological horror thriller Unsane, which was shot entirely on an iPhone. That movie looks great, and you can watch the trailer for it here.
Deadline reports that the movie will center on Will Ferrell's character, a washed up TV legend, who reunites with the actor who played his on-screen son (Jason Momoa), who himself is now a huge star. In real life, the 49-year-old Will Ferrell and 37-year-old Jason Momoa are just 12 years apart. While this story line hasn't been confirmed, sources claim that this was the story being pitched to the studio.
While Jason Momoa is best known for roles in Game of Thrones,
The legendary, award-winning actress, who was born April 24, 1934 in Richmond, Va, started out as a dancer and got her big break on Broadway. She made her first film with Alfred Hitchcock, became a Rat Pack regular, flirted briefly with politics but has never stopped acting as she enters her 7th decade in Hollywood.
She started off as a lovably kooky ingenue, but is known today for her cantankerous matriarch roles in "Downton Abbey," "Bernie," "Steel Magnolias," "Guarding Tess," and, of course, her Oscar-winning role as Aurora Greenway in "Terms of Endearment."
Her next gig is a singing and dancing role on "Glee," of course. Happy Birthday to one of the most talented, most colorful character actresses of all time.
1. She was named after Shirley Temple.
2. She's been performing since age 3, when she began doing ballet.
3. As a girl, she pretended she was Rita Hayworth, since
The gifted singer, dancer and actor Patrice Wymore, who has died aged 87, had the misfortune to be typecast in secondary roles at Warner Bros studios in the 1950s, and to be known as the third wife of the Hollywood star Errol Flynn.
The 23-year-old Wymore and the 41-year-old Flynn got married after co-starring in Rocky Mountain (1950), a minor western in which he played an army officer who rescues her from marauding Indians, though they had no love scenes together on screen. It was Wymore's second film, while Flynn was a veteran of more than three dozen movies. It was the beginning of her film career, while his was on the slide. Both were under contract to Warner Bros.
At the time, MGM musicals reigned supreme, though Warner Bros had Doris Day, a top box-office singing star.

Adding another £4.79m in the past seven days, The Lego Movie now stands at a sturdy £26.67m after three weeks of play. That puts it level with the lifetime tallies of blockbusters including Spider-Man 2 (£26.72m) and Ocean's Eleven (£26.47m), and ahead of fellow animations including Ratatouille (£24.80m) and Wall-e (£22.91m). The Lego Movie will pretty soon overtake the likes of Shrek (£29m) and A Bug's Life (£29.45m) and is clearly headed into the mid-30s (£m).
Although box office for The Lego Movie is certainly skewed to the weekend, its decent performance in the Monday-to-Thursday period suggests that it is picking up a true adult audience, rather than merely adult chaperones of children.
Katie Chang and Israel Broussard, both 18, may play the two alleged masterminds of the crew in "Bling Ring," snotty yet fashionable young people based on Rachel Lee and Nick Prugo, but in a chat with NextMovie in Manhattan the morning of the film's New York premiere, the
Bass created some of the world's most iconic brand logos, including At&T, Quaker Oats, Dixie and the Girl Scouts of America. He was also responsible for many legendary movie posters, including "The Shining," "Vertigo," "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" and "Anatomy of a Murder."
However, the Google Doodle pays tribute to Saul through something else he was known for, movie title sequences. The video features the word "Google," as written in many of Bass' better-known title sequences. Movies like "Spartacus," "Ocean's 11," "Around the World in Eighty Days" and "Psycho" are represented in the video. Saul's last credited work is the 1998 shot-for-shot remake of "Psycho," which utilized a title

It was July 11, 1960, and in two days the convention would nominate John F. Kennedy as the Democrats' presidential nominee. It had been hot and smoggy that day as 7,000 delegates began pouring into the Sports Arena downtown.
The convention was called to order promptly at 5 p.m., and after the invocation, everyone stood as the color guard presented the flag -- the first with 50 stars presented at a national political convention as Hawaii had been admitted to the Union 11 months earlier.
Then came the introduction of the Hollywood celebrities who were packed into the crowded hall as guests of the convention.
With his artfully informal shots of Audrey Hepburn and Chet Baker, the American photographer Bob Willoughby, who has died of cancer aged 82, defined the youthful glamour of the 1950s. Hired by studios and record companies to make actors and musicians look good, Willoughby went beyond his brief to deliver portraits of an idealised elegance particular to its time. He captured the gamine, doe-eyed 24-year-old Hepburn reading letters on a hotel bed in 1953, and the impossibly cool Baker, the same age in the same year, seated on a folding chair in a recording studio, patiently awaiting his moment.
Much sought-after by Hollywood film studios, Willoughby developed new techniques to help him take still photographs on the set, using remote-controlled devices and brackets specially made to attach his apparatus to Panavision film cameras. The films he worked on
Based on the play of the same name, High Life is a smart, smart caper flick featuring not-so-bright criminals. In 1983, finding a weakness in the procedures around the newly prolific Automatic Teller Machines, a group of mostly-ex-con junkies plan a "victimless" heist in which they hope to score tens of thousands of dollars. Of course, when planned and executed by guys whose grasp of reality is near-constantly waylaid by a chemical cornucopia, is any plan perfect? Dick (Timothy Olyphant, ranging far from Deadwood territory) is the mastermind, at least when he's not trying to steal his ex-wife's car or scrounge for a little more morphine. His ex-cellmate Bug (Stephen Eric McIntyre in a strangely sensitive portrayal of a hot-headed killer) is willing to go along with Dick's plan, though he doesn't exactly work well with... anyone else, really. Round out the gang with considerate pickpocket Donnie (Joe Anderson) and charmer
