I am loving the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring the cast of “Bridesmaids” in tuxedos. The six funny gals were named “Entertainers of the Year” by the magazine and I can’t help but agree. Based purely on the number of times the movie made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants, “Bridesmaids” gets my vote for most entertaining film of the year.

First Look: Rihanna’s Film Debut In “Battleship”

But unlike her fellow pop princesses Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus, RiRi isn’t going the sappy, coming-of-age movie route. Instead, Rihanna is playing a non-nonsense naval crewman named Raikes in the upcoming ”Battleship” movie. Read more…

Written by Diablo Cody and directed by Jason Reitman

I went into a screening of “Young Adult” already anticipating that I would love it. After all, the premise centered around that of a young adult novelist, and as a total YA nerd, I was sure I would relate in some way to Mavis Gary. My vague understanding of the plot reinforced my enthusiasm; a single and successful thirtysomething woman, still trying to find what truly makes her happy — that sounds kind of like me! And written by Diablo Cody? Count me in!

Well, my expectations for “Young Adult” were met, not met, and exceeded, all at once. See, I thought the film was fantastic — but it was not at all what I thought it would be. But it was better for it. Keep reading »

Oh yes, there is another rom-com chock-full of celebs is heading our way. Watch the trailer for “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and pray, as I am, that it offers more than the few slapstick jokes and one-liners shown here. “What To Expect,” slated to release in May 2012,  follows five  couples as they deal with first-time pregnancy and discover along the way that the classic baby book doesn’t exactly cover all of the bases. The ensemble cast includes Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, J. Lo, Ben Falcone, Thomas Lennon, Cameron Diaz, Chris Rock, Joe Manganiello, Chase Crawford, Dennis Quaid, Matthew Morrison … and the list goes on. It’s a decent ratio of funny people to beautiful people, though I generally find that bigger does not mean better when cast size is involved. (Case in point, “New Years Eve”‘s lackluster reviews!)

10 Things To Know About Ezra Miller, Star Of “We Need To Talk About Kevin”

Watch The Trailer!
"We Need To Talk About Kevin" is in theaters this weekend. Watch »

Last night, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a screener of “We Need To Talk About Kevin,” the film that was the talk of Cannes, based on the book by Lionel Shriver. The book/movie is told from the perspective of a mother — played by Tilda Swinton — as she struggles to rebuild her life shortly after her teenage son, Kevin, kills a bunch of his fellows students and teachers in an orchestrated massacre. Kevin has always been a bad seed, exhibiting sociopathic behavior since he was in diapers and the film (and, I imagine, the book) puts a certain damper on any baby fever you might have. It’s the ultimate psychological horror story — are some people just born evil? 

Ezra Miller spent over two years trying to land the role before finally getting the green light — and damn, did he blow me away. The thing about many sociopaths is their ability to switch seamlessly between being charming and cruel, and Miller pulls this off brilliantly. He exudes an emotional intelligence beyond his age, a quality that is essential for such a complex and disturbing character. I — and, oh, everyone else — am convinced he is the next big thing. Click onward to check out a bunch of photos and facts about this hot young talent.
