Everyone’s Talking About Bella Thorne’s Pics From The ‘You Get Me’ Film Set

Photo Credit: FameFlynet Pictures I think the reason behind the chatter is fairly obvious. The 18-year-old actress is officially (and legally) in the slimy hands of the Hollywood Exploit Machine, so expect Bella to be typecast in a number of similar roles over the next 12 to 18 months. Bella was seen filming scenes from the upcoming thriller ‘You Get

Rosamund Pike at the Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party: lovely or bizarre?

Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party
Quite a few women came out for the Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party last night, but from what I can tell most of the nominees went to the Tom Ford show instead, with the exception of Rosamund Pike. (Technically it was probably possible for them to attend both events, since I spotted Emily Ratajkowski in the same dress at both.) I don’t have an ID for Rosamund’s gown, but it looks like Carolina Herrera to me. Rosamund isn’t loyal to a single designer, she likes to switch it up all the time, so it’s hard to tell. This is an lovely gown with some great details. I love how the flowers kind of bleed into the skirt from the side of the bodice. I’m interested to see what she’ll wear to the Oscars. One complaint: the ruffles on the top need to go. Also this look could use more eye makeup.

Also in need of bolder makeup (that’s just a peeve of mine as I’m a makeup person, no offense to those of you who don’t need it, you lucky bitches) we have Michelle Monaghan in Roksanda. Red Carpet Fashion Awards has a photo of this dress as styled for the runway and it originally had a gold belt. It needs the belt to break up the switch in the pattern from the top to the bottom. There’s no excuse for that switch at the hemline though. The bold lines in this contemporary dress need to seamlessly flow into one another, not change abruptly.

Carmen Ejogo was in a pale v-neck floor length gown with a high leg slit and black side panels. From the front this dress is very Angelina Jolie and sack-like. From the side it’s a little more interesting. In photos, from far away, this looks monotone but there are actually tiny black squares all over the gown. This is how you do red carpet makeup. You may tone down the eyes a bit but you pair them with a bold lip.

GREAT British Film Reception

Elle Fanning was washed out in a multi-pastel Valentino gown featuring layers of ruffled chiffon. She looks like a wood sprite at an Easter ball. Look at her pointy yellow shoes!

Also in the gallery we have photos of Laura Dern (cool pantsuit, bad shoes), Jennifer Hudson (hot but boring), Meryl Streep (comfy), Kate Walsh (beyond fug) and Lake Bell (great little dress).

War Horse: Film Review

War Horse: Film Review

Visit the film’s official website!

Oh the glory of The Horse. And woe the glory of The Horse. And all animals.

Or rather, woe the barbarity of Man who inflicts war, terror, and violence on another creature he dares to call “beast”. This is the sentimental, delicately heart-pounding platform upon which Steven Spielberg mounts the enormous canvas of War Horse. It is among Spielberg’s best efforts, not only because his artistry is at full display, but because it provides a glimpse into the man’s inner workings and, frankly, his utter disdain for violence and war. If Albert Camus and Walt Disney had teamed up to make a live action film, it would be War Horse.

Many millions have seen the stage show in its various stage incarnations from New York to London to Tokyo. But the story is best told on screen where the emotions of both man and horse can be detailed in ways that are too subtle to be conveyed on stage.

The story is not that different from most child-animal companion stories: an impoverished child happens to come into the possession of a noble animal in troubled times. In War Horse, this means that a young English boy named Albert Narracott from an impoverished family comes to befriend a horse named Joey his drunken father impulsively buys at auction. The father uses the family’s rent money to buy the horse, which naturally puts them at peril, but which later seems a wise decision when one considers how magnificent the steed is. Joey brings a certain magic and freedom to the lives of the Narracott clan, whose lives are burdened not only by the constant pressure of poverty, but of the impending disaster of World War I.

In time, and as the war escalates, Joey ends up in the possession of the enemy: the Germans. It is during the sections of the movie where we see Joey separated from Albert that Spielberg uses a slew of poetic montages to convey the brutality of War and the stupidity of Man through the suffering of the Animals. No creature has been more attached to human war and conflict as the Horse, and no other has observed more pointless human engineered violence and peril. None has carried more men to more meaningless death and destruction as the Horse. Why they have served us so is one of the things Spielberg wants us to ponder. I still have no answer.

Some will fault the film for being overly sentimental and for playing as more a collection of vignettes than as a single, solid narrative. Such arguments are valid, but I think beside the point to Spielberg’s aim in making the movie. The story is designed to uplift and to devastate at the same time, to honor and shame simultaneously. We raise the mantle of our humanity – constantly – as proof that we are the superior species on the planet. But, Spielberg hints, perhaps superiority is not the goal. Rather, simple existence and co-existence, sans violence and coercion, should be the goal. And this no human has ever achieved.

A must see.

NYC: Smoking Olivia Wilde Treats Jason Bateman To A Kiss on “The Longest Week” Film Set

NYC: Smoking Olivia Wilde Treats Jason Bateman To A Kiss on "The Longest Week" Film Set

Jason Bateman seemed to be getting along just fine on the set of their upcoming romantic comedy "The Longest Week," which will hit theaters sometime in 2012. The film is actually being produced by Bollywood producer Uday Chopra, so we should expect to see at least one dance number with Jason Bateman & Olivia Wilde waltzing through Central Park.

Besides blessing co-star Jason Bateman with a kiss on the lips, Olivia was spotted grabbing a quick smoke–we don’t know whether she was in character or maybe she’s taking shortcuts in weight management? Whatever the case, I’m pretty sure she lost a few bastards from her fan club, which is kind of sad if you really think about it since it’s widely known that chicks who smoke are 10x wilder behind closed doors than chicks who don’t. I forget who commissioned the study, but I’m sure there’s some truth in it.

Plot juice from IMDb:

Affluent and aimless, Conrad Valmont lives a life of leisure in his parent’s prestigious Manhattan Hotel. In the span of one week, he finds himself evicted, disinherited, and… in love. [Source]

Katie Holmes Premieres "The Decision"

She’s certainly hoping for a warm reception after having recent works panned by critics and on Tuesday night (March 22), Katie Holmes turned up for a special screening of “The Decision” in New York City.

Held at Lavo while hosted by the “Dawson’s Creek” darling and John Freida, the red carpet affair drew out attendees including Tinsley Mortimer, Alison Brie and the lovely Julie Benz, among others.

Decked out in a white tuxedo jacket with a black top, black pants and polka-dot heels, Miss Holmes’ latest offering is a short film in support of the new John Frieda Precision Foam Color – with Katie playing “a high-profile actress who decides to sack her colorist and dye her own hair instead” named Joan Hudson.

The 46-year-old Hollywood starlet is still a beauty, despite the scraggly wig!

Sandra Bullock just spent the weekend in New York with her adopted son Louis, but now she’s back to work – the actress is busy on set shooting Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (her first film since her Oscar-winning role in The Blind Side) with co-star Tom Hanks.

The film, directed by Stephen Daldry and adapted by Eric Roth, concerns a young boy searching “New York for the lock that matches a mysterious key left by his father when he was killed in the September 11 attacks.”

Daldry intends for the film to be completed by the fall of this year so that it coincides with the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

In other Bullock news, the new mom received a visit from Renee Zellweger over the weekend, reportedly for comfort after splitting with beau Bradley Cooper. (Bullock starred with Cooper in 2009’s All About Steve and had a high-profile breakup of her own a year later with Jesse James.)
Nothing like a little girl talk to lift one's spirits!

The sexy and sultry Carla Gugino was seen running some errands yesterday in Beverly Hills. We caught up with her stopping by the Jewelry Brokers store after getting coffee at Urth Cafe. If you can’t get enough of Carla, be sure to check out her new film or these fantastic photos! You can watch the trailer from her new film under the jump:

Carla Gugino slips into porn star lingerie once again to star in “Women in Trouble” sequel, “Elektra Luxx”, which is now previewed in a trailer debuted via Apple. She still portrays the title character who is now pregnant with the child of late rock star Nick Chapel and trying to make ends meet by teaching a community college sex education class aimed at housewives.

Later a figure from her past, flight attendant Cora, approaches her with a proposition. In exchange for the (stolen) lyrics to Chapel’s last record, all of which is about Elektra, Cora needs Elektra to seduce her fiancee. Elektra reluctantly agrees to do this favor, setting in motion a series of hilarious events which will see her come face to face with detectives, sex bloggers, emotionally unstable neighbors and the Virgin Mary herself.

The film has an all-star cast consisting of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Malin Akerman, Timothy Olyphant, Adrianne Palicki and Emmanuelle Chriqui. Sebastian Gutierrez who directed 2009 “Women in Trouble” returns to the helming seat for the sequel, which will be released on March 11 in the U.S.
