We’re not sure how many of you guys went out and watched “Fifty Shades of Grey,” but judging by its crazy success at the box-office with the first film, it doesn’t surprise us at all that producers are going all in with the series. For the record, the first film had a production of $40 million and raked in roughly $571 million at the box-office! Now, that’s what I call a great return!

These latest photos were snapped at the ‘Fifty Shades Darker‘ film premiere yesterday at The Theatre at Ace Hotel. According to the film’s Wiki, the cast includes Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan star as the leads Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, with Kim Basinger, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini scoring supporting roles. Here’s more about the film:

Following the events of Fifty Shades of Grey, Anastasia “Ana” Steele tries to move on from her relationship with Christian Grey. A wounded Christian convinces her to resume their romance under Ana’s conditions. As the couple begins their normal relationship, Christian’s past threatens to tear the couple apart. Source

As we mentioned in a previous email, Ruby Rose is set to star in a number of films this year, thanks mainly to her popularity on the Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black.” Earlier in the month, Ruby was on the red carpet promoting “XXX: Return of Xander Cage” and sometime later this year, she’ll be back on the red carpet at the “Pitch Perfect 3” premiere. Looks like somebody has cornered the franchise market, but hey, as long as the fat checks are rolling, it’s all good!

These latest photos were snapped last night at the “John Wick: Chapter 2” premiere held at The Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood. Following a near-4x return on the 2014 original, it was only natural for the producers to roll the dice with a sequel! Aside from Keanu Reeves and Ruby Rose, “Chapter 2” stars Common, Laurence Fishburne, Riccardo Scamarcio, John Leguizamo and Ian McShane. The film will hit theaters next weekend.

More about the film:

Legendary hitman John Wick is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome, where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.[Source]

And finally, judging by all the ladies in attendance, I think one of our trademark polls is in order…

1.3 Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)
1.4 Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)

The latest film in the series stars Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, Shawn Roberts, Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy and Iain Glen. Here’s more:

Picking up three weeks after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice and their comrades were betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to become the humanity’s final stand against the hordes of undead, Alice must return to where the nightmare had begun – the now-destroyed Raccoon City, where Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces to make a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle fighting against zombie hordes and new deadly mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights against the tyrannical leader of Umbrella led by Dr. Sam Isaacs and other deadly enemy forces in order to save humanity and the world, which is on the brink of oblivion caused by the deadly T-virus that had destroyed millions of human lives on Earth.

Since time is a little tight today, we’re going to focus on the big “xXx: Return Of Xander Cage” premiere in Hollywood. It was a fairly star-packed premiere, so there are plenty of faces to keep you guys busy—at least those of you aren’t preoccupied with the inauguration.

Before we move to the commenting on the photos, here’s more about the new film, which is the third in the “xXx” franchise. Hitting theaters this weekend, the film stars Vin Diesel, Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Toni Collette and Samuel L. Jackson.

Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel), thought to be long dead, comes out of self-imposed exile as recruited by the CIA to race villain Xiang (Donnie Yen) to recover a powerful weapon known as “Pandora’s Box” which can control military satellites which could cause catastrophic damage. Recruiting a group of thrill-seeking cohorts (a sharpshooter and a hacker), Xander finds himself caught up in a deadly conspiracy of corruption among world governments including insiders in his own country’s government.

Here’s the trailer—the opening photo features Vin Diesel and Bollywood star Deepika Padukone:

Damn, those are lot of tats! Can you imagine what Ruby Rose will look like when she’s 60? Not sure about you guys, but Hermione Corfield has our attention.

Major “OW!” to Paloma Jimenez and can somebody tell Maria Menounos to buy longer dresses? Those legs look painful.

Bryce Dallas Howard, Camilla Alves, & Matthew McConaughey at the “Gold” Film Premiere in NYC

The premiere was held last night at AMC Loews Lincoln Square in NYC.

We wish we could say that Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey once again struck gold with his latest film, but sadly critics online are trashing his latest effort (see Metacritic & Rotten Tomatoes). As an apparent consolation from the award show circuit, “Gold,” a film that released on December 30th and is co-produced by Matthew McConaughey himself, received a Golden Globe Award nomination for its self-titled original song. You can listen to it below:

Here’s more about the film:

“The Space Between Us” (see the Wiki) is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Peter Chelsom, produced by Richard B. Lewis and written by Allan Loeb. The film stars Asa Butterfield, Britt Robertson, Gary Oldman, and Carla Gugino. As we’ve seen in past premieres, Kara Del Toro always seems to be the hottest one one the red carpet and most of the time she isn’t even in the film (nothing wrong with that of course). The screening was held last night at The Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood.

Here’s more about the film:

In this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonize Mars, only to discover after takeoff that one of the astronauts is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet – never revealing who the father is. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot (Asa Butterfield) – an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing. While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, Gardner begins an online friendship with a street smart girl in Colorado named Tulsa (Britt Robertson). [Read more]

I know, I know, Stephanie Pratt is a reality TV hasbeen, but hey she was at the “Live By Night” premiere held at BFI Southbank in London earlier in the week. She isn’t a cast member, so it seems like she just enjoys playing dress up attending A-list premieres.

The new crime drama has “Ben Affleck” written all over it. Not only does he star in the film, but he’s also credited as the writer, director & producer. Other cast members include Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Cooper.

Here’s more about the film:

Set in the 1920s and 1930s, the story follows Joe Coughlin, the prodigal son of a Boston police captain. Joe is a World War I veteran of Irish descent who is in love with Emma Gould (Sienna Miller), mistress of the notorious gangster Albert White (Robert Glenister), who is the boss of the Irish Gang of Boston. Joe’s father, Thomas Coughlin, disapproves of Emma. Joe and Emma decide to move to California to escape the wrath of White, but to their misfortune the head of Albert’s rival, Italian Mafia Maso Pescatore (Remo Girone), finds out about their affair and blackmails Joe to kill Albert. Joe refuses, as he was done with killing after the war, to which Maso threatens to inform Albert. Joe commits a bank heist with his partner Dion Bartolo (Chris Messina), during which three police officers are killed in the ensuing chase. On the day of their planned escape, Albert catches Joe (following a trap created by him and his goons that involved Emma betraying him) and nearly beats him to death before the police arrive and arrest him for the policemen’s murders.

Anya Taylor-Joy Promotes M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ In Italy

Director and screenwriter M. Night Shyamalan’s latest horror flick “Split” is making its way through the promotional channels. Compared to hit previous films, “Split” seems to be on the low-budget end of the spectrum with its $5 million price tag. The film quietly premiered last September at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, at which time Universal Pictures scooped up distribution rights.

As for Anya Taylor-Joy, she’s a 20-year-old Argentine-British actress born in Miami. She scored one of the starring roles alongside James McAvoy. Here’s more about the film:

After a wholesome teen birthday party, three girls are kidnapped in broad daylight: friends Claire (Haley Lu Richardson) and Marcia (Jessica Sula), and difficult outsider Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy). Their captor Kevin (James McAvoy) locks the trio in a windowless room, then proceeds to frighten and baffle them. One minute he’s wearing eyeglasses and obsessive about cleanliness, the next he’s presenting as female, and later he acts like a nine-year-old boy. It is revealed that Kevin exhibits 23 alternate personalities, and in order to escape, his captives must convince one of the personalities within him to set them free, before the arrival of the 24th and final personality, the “beast”.

‘xXx Return of Xander Cage’ Premiere in London: Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose & Deepika

If you thought Priyanka Chopra was a big Bollywood star, Deepika Padukone is even bigger back home in India, so it will be interesting to see how she’s received on the big screen by her old & potentially new fans around the globe!

I’ll be completely honest, I haven’t watched any of the films in the “xXx” franchise, but I’m assuming 95% of the scenes are packed with Vin Diesel flexing his “tough guy” muscles. I’ve seen my share of Jean-Claude Van Damme & Steven Seagal flicks back in the day, but for some reason, I no longer have the patience for those types of movies. Is that something that happens with age?

As for the photos, what’s up with Ruby Rose? She looks like a cross between old-school Angelina Jolie with a really pointy chin. And, Nina looks 10x sexier at this event than she did at the Globes or walking through LAX.

More about the film:

Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel), thought to be long dead, comes out of self-imposed exile to race villain Xiang (Donnie Yen) to recover a powerful weapon known as “Pandora’s Box”.
