Yesterday Lindsay Lohan was unleashed from house arrest and promptly partied until 2AM this morning. We love you, Lindsay!
No one is happier to have Lohan back than gossip columnists and late-night talk show hosts. Last night David Letterman's Top 10 was "Lindsay Lohan's Summer Plans," which included "Get drunk, steal some crap," and "For a change of pace, rent timeshare in Hamptons prison." Unbeknownst to Letterman's joke writers, LiLo's plans to celebrate her 25th birthday bash at a Hamptons nightclub were canceled.
Breaking news this morning is that Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in the hospital after a suicide attempt.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez went on another PDA-filled shopping stroll, while Gomez opened up about her crush on Shia LaBeouf.
Denise Richards has adopted a baby girl, going with Made in the USA.
This summer's hit comedy Bridesmaids has passed Knocked Up as the highest-grossing domestic movie of producer/director Judd Apatow's career, and by Sunday or Monday will pass Sex and the City as the top R-rated female comedy of all time.
38-year-old Gwyneth Paltrow has previously advocated for some weird and possibly unhealthy diets, but it's difficult to question the results as she poses topless for Vanity Fair. Posted 06.30.11 by reelz
Now that Fox has its principal actors in place and is preparing to go into production in a little over one week on X-Men: First Class, the studio is apparently turning its attention toward putting together a new cast for its other major Marvel Comics property, the Fantastic Four. Though both Fantastic Four and its sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, turned a profit, both movies were heavily criticized and neither managed to strike a chord with die-hard comic book movie fans. The third movie, tentatively titled Fantastic Four Reborn, will be a complete reboot of the franchise, with all new cast members portraying the famous family of superheroes.
In recent weeks, both Alice Eve—who was recently connected to First Class, but apparently passed on it because of her displeasure with changes to the script—and Amber Heard have been rumored to be up for the role of the matriarch of the team, Susan Storm, aka Invisible Woman, previously played by Jessica Alba. Now, ScreenRant is claiming to have some inside information about the actors on deck to play Sue's husband, Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic. The site claims that Fox is pursuing Oscar-winner Adrien Brody and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers to step into the role played by Ioan Gruffudd in the first two movies. what's the deal with Mr. Fantastic? >> Posted 08.23.10 by BrentJS

John Travolta has a really foul mouth — at least when he is playing American special agent Charlie Wax in From Paris with Love. Hence, all of the recent previews of the movie are skewing age-restricted. Indeed from everything from the movie that has been released so far, Wax (whose name certainly fits his shiny bald head) is quite the piece of work, as happy putting bullets into people as he is shooting off his mouth. And the expletives flow every bit a freely here as they did in Pulp Fiction.
Travolta's larger-than-life character clearly is intended to be a centerpiece of this latest thriller by Pierre Morel, the director of Taken. But the action and suspense clearly keep the story moving, as Wax and his French partner try and track down a terrorist threat. In the latest clip, we see Wax zipping up his fly as he comes out of bathroom, lackadaisically assessing the progress his French partner (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) is making in a fight and, as always, coming up with a higher caliber-solution.
For more of the action, you can check out various other (also age-restricted) short clips on the movie's revamped website. Posted 01.25.10 by reelz
A buddy cop flick which pairs a sophisticated Paris investigator (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) with his boorish and foul-mouthed American counterpart Charlie Wax (John Travolta), From Paris with Love aims to balance out the action and suspense with a truly over-the-top performance by Travolta. While the earlier previews featured Travolta shooting off his big guns, this latest red-band trailer puts his big mouth front and center.
Whether trying out some Elvis moves, or showing off his cultural sensitivity, Wax is a cartoonish ugly American, played for laughs and apparently destined to save the day despite his preference for resolving any problem with the most outrageous and violent response possible. Trying to keep Wax out of trouble definitely keeps his partner busy full time. Posted 01.10.10 by reelz
Thanks to SlashFilm, we have the first full-length trailer for Pierre Morel's From Paris with Love — his follow-up to Taken, a movie with the apparent goal of making all young girls scared to travel abroad.
The movie stars a bald John Travolta as an American spy who hooks up with a young embassy employee in Paris. Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays his partner, and Amber Rose Revah is the romantic love interest and leading lady. From Paris with Love boasts a shocking surprise ending. So, we're pumped to see it. If it's as suspenseful as Taken, it is sure to be a good ride. Posted 09.17.09 by reelz
