“It was a mind trip for me. Olivia is two or three years younger than me, so to have her playing my mother was definitely a head trip. I’d just like to point out that [my song] ‘Mother Lover’ is about sexing up someone else’s mother.”
—Justin Timberlake talks at Comic-Con about his new action flick, “In Time,” in which he stars alongside Amanda Seyfried and Olivia Wilde. In the movie, scientists have figured out how to stop the aging process so that people remain forever 25—but for a high price. Which means that in the movie, characters who are far older in numerical age look the same as everyone else. Hence, how Olivia can play Justin’s mom.

Let’s face it: keeping up with pop culture is difficult. With more than 1000 channels worth of TV shows, not to mention a new flood of movies and music every week, it’s practically a full-time job to keep up with everything. Luckily, it is my full-time job. So after the jump, your cheat sheet of the TV shows you need to watch, the albums you need to hear, the movies you need to see, and much, much more this week.

Last week, Entertainment Weekly ran a first look at Lily Collins as Snow White in Tarsem Singh’s “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White,” which will also star Julia Roberts as the Evil Stepmother. Just a few days later, “Snow White and the Huntsman”—the Snow White movie starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron—got its moment to shine at Comic-Con. Now, these two Snow Whites are drastically different. Lily Collins is the classic beauty, while Kristen Stewart looks rugged and ready to fight. “It’s not a little girl sitting by a well with tweety birds telling her what’s going on,” explains director Rupert Sanders.
But the real question here is—why do the dwarves get no love? Keep reading »
There’s the age old question, “Can men and women just be friends?” But there’s a second question that’s practically as ancient: “Should you just be friends or take it to the next level?” The upcoming film “One Day,” starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, explores that very notion by introducing audiences to Emma and Dexter, a pair of Brits that spend the night together their last night of college, and then decide to just be friends. The film — check out the trailer here — then shows them each year on the same date to see where they are in their lives. Sometimes they’re together, sometimes they not, but you’ll have to watch the movie to see whether they end up together in the end. Keep reading »
This weekend, the world will get to see Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake’s butt in “Friends With Benefits.” But as we’ve shared with you before, there were actually three projects angling to grab this movie’s coveted title. The first became Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman‘s “No Strings Attached.” And the third, a television show that now shares the name “Friends with Benefits,” begins airing in two weeks on NBC.
So, of these three projects’ leading men—who would we shun, shag, and marry? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
Straight off the hype for “Horrible Bosses,” the trailer for Jason Sudeikis‘ new movie has hit the interwebs. The flick is called “Good Old Fashioned Orgy” and it looks about as promising as the title. The truly lame premise: when a man’s father decides to sell the summer house he lives and throws oodles of parties in, he decides to have one last hurrah—an orgy. While I appreciate Jason’s mullet in the preview, I shall be skipping this one. Will you? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
“The wedding was Secret Service style insane. The crew was completely inconvenienced—there was no cell phone or email. I said thank you so much because if this [wedding] dress gets on the Internet, I’ll die! I had to be locked into the dress to protect it.”
—Kristen Stewart talks at the Comic-Con panel for “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” about the most highly anticipated moment in the flick, the wedding scene. (Well, perhaps the sex scene is just as anticipated, as parts of it have been leaked online.) It’s so crazy that her wedding dress has been guarded like a state secret. At least we know how her hair will look? [People]
People can’t stop asking Kristen about the wedding scene at Comic-Con. Another quote after the jump. Keep reading »
We’ve been thoroughly impressed with Justin Timberlake‘s turn from pop star into full-fledged actor. It began with his nerdy turn in “The Social Network,” and continued with starring roles in twin rom-coms, “Bad Teacher” and “Friends with Benefits.” Next, Justin is pushing into action territory in the sci-fi thriller “In Time.” In the flick, humans have figured out how to stop aging—if you are rich enough to pay for it. Justin’s character is—until he’s accused of murder and goes on the lam, taking Amanda Seyfried as a hostage. Can I buy tickets now? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
“It was hard—really, really hard … It’s hard to play someone who is very present in people’s minds, who’s on television, who’s very idiosyncratic, I did my best. We’ll see, I hope we pulled it off … [The accent took] practice, an incredible amount of practice. I had to listen to it over and over again. My son was embarrassed because [Palin's speeches were] all that was on my iPod. He said, ‘Where’s your music?’ I erased all my music.”
—Julianne Moore talks to MTV News about what it was like playing Sarah Palin in the HBO movie “Game Change.” For some reason, I am picturing her and Tina Fey at a bar, sipping gin and tonics and trading war stories about the complexities of winking correctly and finding the exact right Alaskan lilt.
