First Look: “The Romantics,” Starring Katie Holmes, Anna Paquin & Josh Duhamel


A few years ago, Katie Holmes was showing such acting promise — critics loved her in “Pieces of April,” though her wooden showing in “Batman Begins” didn’t win her any new fans. Still, before marrying Tom Cruise and having baby Suri, Holmes was transitioning her success on the small screen (on “Dawson’s Creek”) into major roles on the big screen. Then she dropped out of the next “Batman” — at Cruise’s behest — starred alongside Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton in the stinker “Mad Money,” and tried her hand at Broadway to mixed reviews. So when I heard she would be starring in the movie adaptation of the book The Romantics alongside Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Elijah Wood, Malin Ackerman, and Candace Bergen, well, I got kinda psyched that Holmes might getting back on the right track. By the looks of the preview, I might be right — it looks fantastic. Gawker suggests this could be Holmes’ “Rachel Getting Married,” though they doubt it will make critics and audiences take her seriously as an actress, like the latter did for Anne Hathaway. What do you think — will you be seeing “The Romantics”? [Gawker] Keep reading »

It isn’t necessarily the traditional mother, father, two children and a dog named Spot.”

Jennifer Aniston is feeling her character in “The Switch” and gives props to women who decide to have children solo. But would she ever practice what she preaches? Hey, it’s what we’re all wondering. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Joaquin Phoenix Reveals White Boy Dreads In “I’m Still Here” Poster

I still have no effing clue what the Joaquin Phoenix documentary, “I’m Still Here,” (directed by accused sexual harasser Casey Affleck) is about, but I can’t wait to see it and find out. If only so I can finally learn what his god-awful crazy homeless man makeover was all about. Will Joaquin show up to the premiere freshly shaved or “in character” (if indeed this was a character)? I’m confusing myself. Sorry. Keep reading »
