Reelz' Entertainment Rundown
It was a big weekend for awards with both the GRAMMYs and BAFTAs taking place and as always the fashion played a key part. After receiving an email detailing unacceptable attire, the GRAMMY guests appeared less risky than previous years, however there were a few stars who pushed the boundaries. Jennifer Lopez seemed to gain inspiration from Angelina Jolie’s famous red-carpet Versace dress, wearing a leg revealing Anthony Vaccarello, Katy Perry showed off a figure hugging, cleavage baring Gucci number and Kelly Rowland left little to the imagination with her Anthony Vaccarello gown. The BAFTAs were a classier affair with Jessica Chastain stunning in a blue Rolan Mouret and perhaps the most shocking, Helen Mirren debuting a newly-dyed pink hair style.
The Grand Slam Star Trek & Sci-Fi Summit XVIII is taking place in Burbank this weekend, February 15-17. Science-fiction fans from around the world will enjoy appearances from a vast number of celebrities, including Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Jasika Nicole, and more. The non-stop auditorium show will include behind the scenes presentations, costume and trivia contests, videos, and auctions all related to new and vintage sci-fi TV and movies from franchises such as Star Trek, Stargate SG-1, Fringe, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, and The Vampire Diaries More on Finding Nemo 2 and The Muppets...

Which arm-cross will reign supreme?
A man's arm-cross is often indicative of self-importance or disagreement, but a lady crossing her arms can signify any number of things. From dislike to incredulity to self-sufficiency, actresses used cross arms in a variety of ways in 2012. We've nominated our five favorite for the Best Lady Arm-Cross of 2012 Reelzie Award. cast your vote >> Posted 01.01.13 by Mandy
Which of this year's actresses deserve the industry’s highest honors?
With many of Hollywood's perenially favorite veteran actresses noticably absent from the big screen in 2012 — or having appeared in movies that simply failed to live up to expectations — the 2013 Best Actress nominees will likely be made up of mostly new faces and skew much younger than in years past. In fact, several of the actresses receiving Oscar buzz are in their '20s and one — Quvenzhané Wallis, star of Beasts of the Southern Wild — is only 9 years old, which would make her the youngest actress ever nominated for an Oscar should she get the nod. We already asked you to tell us which movies you thought were the best and which directors are most deserving of Oscar nominations, now tell us which actresses are worthy of the movie industry's highest honors, whether Best Actress or Best Supporting Actress.

If you have to ask "what's under the bed," don't expect a good answer.
Considering it's October, it's no surprise to see a plethora of new trailers for upcoming horror movies. Only, in the case of Mama, the movie won't open until next January after being moved from its initial (but tentative) October release date in August. From the looks of the movie, the move was likely done to avoid competition from other supernatural horror movies like Sinister and Paranormal Activity 4 and not because of a lack of quality (as a move to the "dead zone" of January might suggest).
Executive produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), Mama stars Academy Award–nominated actress Jessica Chastain (The Help) as Annabel, who becomes the guardian of her partner Lucas' (Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) two orphaned nieces Victoria (Red Riding Hood's Megan Charpentier) and Lilly (Isabelle Nélisse), who have miraculously survived alone in the woods for five years. Or is it a miracle? Unlike the first trailer for Mama, it doesn't take long for the new international trailer to reveal that the girls may owe their lives to a secret companion, a ghostly apparition of a woman they call "mama."more terrifying trailers

"You will never find him," they said. Until they did.
Director Kathryn Bigelow struck Oscar gold with The Hurt Locker, her uncompromising look at a bomb disposal unit working during the Iraq War, and her next project may well be headed in the same direction. Initially conceived with Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal as a movie about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, SEAL Team Six's successful mission against the Al Qaeda terrorist changed the scope of the now named movie Zero Dark Thirty.
"I’m fascinated by people who dedicate themselves to really difficult and dangerous things for the greater good," Boal told EW when the teaser trailer was revealed in August. "I’m fascinated by the world they inhabit. I personally want to know how they caught bin Laden. All I can do is hope that it interests other people." After watching the movie's second trailer, we think people will definitely be interested. hunting down the best trailers

Del Toro Does Baby Mama Horror
We love just about everything that Guillermo del Toro has a hand in, so we're holding out hope that, despite the clichéd creepy crawlies, pretty ridiculous premise and terrible title, he has infused his latest production, Mama, with some of his magic.
Written and directed by Andres Muschietti and based on his two-shot Spanish short of the same name, Mama centers around two feral orphaned sisters — Victoria (Megan Charpentier) and Lilly (Isabelle Nélisse) — who are discovered living in the woods and taken in by their uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his partner Annabel (Jessica Chastain). But, as if dealing with the feral girls' strange behavior isn't difficult enough, Lucas and Annabel also face a malevolent spirit the girls call "Mama" that appears to have followed them out of the woods with the intention of reclaiming them.more hair-raising horror trailers

If there's a busier actress in Hollywood than Jessica Chastain, we haven't figured out who she is yet. In 2011 alone the actress appeared in seven movies, including the spy thriller The Debt, the Shakespearean adaptation Coriolanus and the dramas The Tree of Life and The Help, the latter of which earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. This year has been slightly less prolific, with Chastain contributing a voice to Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted as well as appearing in December's Zero Dark Thirty. Starting this Friday, audiences can also see her in Lawless, playing the love interest to Tom Hardy's bootlegging protagonist in the period crime drama.
While Chastain isn't quite an A-list star to some, it's hard to believe how quickly the actress' star has risen since making her cinematic debut in 2008's Jolene. Hollywood Dailies tracks her blossoming career in the clip above. more about chastain's career >> Posted 08.28.12 by Ryan
The summer has already been pretty kind to The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy, but his upcoming role in the drama Lawless could bring the British actor even more acclaim. Hardy, along with fellow A-lister (or is he? Check here for more details) Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke, star as three bootlegging brothers in Prohibition-era Virginia whose business comes under threat of the authorities like Chicago lawman Charles Rakes (Guy Pearce), who wants some of the brothers' profit. In the clip above, ReelzChannel movie expert Richard Roeper examines the movie and reveales whether Hardy or fellow cast members like Jessica Chastain (The Help) might find themselves in Oscar contention early next year. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.23.12 by Ryan
Everybody has their favorite actor, the one they will go see in any movie, no matter what. Movie studios also have their favorite actors, particularly the ones that can sell a movie to a viewing public. When an actor moves from supporting roles to carrying a movie, studios put those actors on the proverbial "A-List." The actors on that list fluctuate with the times, but the reasons behind whether an actor can be on the A-list or not remains the same.
Stephen Galloway, executive editor of The Hollywood Reporter explained to The Hollywood Dailies the three criteria that put an actor on "the A-list," while discussing whether several actors — Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man), Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), Ryan Gosling (Drive), Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Jessica Chastain (The Help), among others — belonged on that list. Who makes it and who doesn't may surprise you. Posted 08.22.12 by Ryan
