At long last, the trailer for Angelina Jolie‘s hella controversial directorial/screenwriting debut, “The Land of Blood and Honey,” is here. Cast with a slew of unknown actors, the film follows the impossible romance of a Serbian man and a Boznian woman during Bosnia’s civil war (circa 1992-95). The two minute trailer features murder, persecution, sex, imprisonment and tears. A word to the wise not to catch this flick when feeling emotionally vulnerable. [ScreenRant] Keep reading »
It’s a scary world out there for us ladies sometimes. That’s why I love a good horror movie for contained fear and excitement. There’s nothing like sitting down in the darkened theater for two hours of sensory overload and raw adrenaline, only to leave when it’s all done in one piece. It’s like paying $12 for two hours of therapy. Keep reading »
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 our full-time job. So after the jump, your cheat sheet to the TV shows you need to watch, the albums you need to hear, and the movies you need to see. This week, we’ve got “Paranormal Activity 3,” a Smiths boxset, and puppies vs. babies!

Believe it or not, this stately gentleman is actually Glenn Close. This photo is from her new film, “Albert Nobbs,” the story of an Englishwoman in the 1800s who dressed as a man to get a job as a butler. She’s been working on making this passion project a reality for the last 10 years. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Mia Wasikowska and Aaron Johnson also star. Sounds like an all-star cast and by the looks of the trailer (check it out here) the film looks to be worthy of their talent. [Hollywood Reporter]

It’s been almost 15 years since the release of “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion,” starring Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino. And if you’ll remember, Post-It Notes played a pivotal role in the plot of the film (the girls claimed they invented the handy note-writing tools). So to commemorate the classic 1997 comedy, Entertainment Weekly designed special dresses made out of multi-colored Post-Its. Rather glamorous, wouldn’t you say? [Entertainment Weekly]
Say what you will about the choices Diablo Cody has made as a result of her fame from “Juno,” but the woman takes risks — huge risks — with what she puts out there. (That campy Megan Fox/Amanda Seyfried horror movie that flopped? Exactly.) Her newest movie coming out this holiday season is called “Young Adult” and stars Charlize Theron as a 30-something woman who heads back to her hometown looking for her ex, who is married with a new baby. I think you’ll agree with me after watching this trailer that this film is going to be risky. Keep reading »
