Normally Kara Del Toro is the hottest person at these premieres, but was getting squeezed for camera time by equally-sultry model Tanya Mityushina at last night’s premiere for Lionsgate’s ‘Boo! A Madea Halloween’ held at the ArcLight Cinema Dome. We’ll let you guys practice your voting skills as we slowly crawl our way to the general election next November (remember, you can still register to vote!).
And, here’s the trailer for the film:
ABC’s “Quantico” is an awfully popular series, so we’re assuming some of you guys tune in each week. As a result of the show’s popularity, Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is making the transition to the Hollywood scene seem all too easy, to be honest. Let’s hope for more crossovers from China & India because with a combined population of nearly three billion, you have to assume both countries have at least 100K people who act better than the average Hollywood star. Acting abilities aside, I’m pretty sure the Asian exports are also far cheaper than the average Hollywood star!
The on-set photos of Priyanka Chopra were taken earlier today as the Indian beauty filmed scenes for her hit TV series on location in NYC. As for the glamm’d-up photos, Priyanka was in attendance last night at a special “Quantito”-fueled event during PaleyFest New York 2016 held at The Paley Center for Media in NYC.
Vanessa Hudgens was spotted out & about working her stylish mojo over the past few days. Over the weekend, the actress was seen rocking a bomber jacket while doing some shopping. And earlier this morning, the former “High School Musical” star was seen leaving a gym in Studio City with her longtime boyfriend Austin Butler. The pair weren’t to fond of the papz as they did their best to hide their faces nad keep all the focus on their respective bodies.

Judging by how Edward Snowden already got his own Hollywood film, let’s see if this sparks a new round of high-profile government leaks. Joseph Gordon-Levitt scoring the lead role as Edward Snowden stars alongside Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Scott Eastwood, Logan Marshall-Green, Timothy Olyphant, Ben Schnetzer, LaKeith Lee Stanfield, Rhys Ifans and Nicolas Cage. Wait a minute, Nicolas Cage is starring in this thing?! WTF? This can’t possibly be good—right?
Here’s more about the film:
The film follows Edward Snowden, an American computer professional who leaked classified information from the National Security Agency to The Guardian in June 2013. Among other things, the classified information revealed extensive illegal cyber-snooping on millions of unsuspecting American citizens which was unknown to even Congress at the time. Source
For those of you curious about critical response after it first screened at Comic-Con earlier this year:
Snowden received mixed reviews from critics, but praised Gordon-Levitt’s performance. On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 63%, based on 175 reviews, with an average rating of 6.4/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Snowden boasts a thrilling fact-based tale and a solid lead performance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but director Oliver Stone plays it perplexingly safe, sapping the story of its impact.” On Metacritic, the film has a normalized rating of 58 out of 100, based on 41 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews”. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average “A” grade, on an A+ to F scale.
Richard Roeper gave the film three out of four stars, saying, “Snowden works best when it’s just Edward and the three journalists in that hotel room, sweating it out, or when we see the pattern of events that led him to commit acts that exposed the shocking practices of our own government but also quite possibly created serious security breaches.” [Source]
The always-fashionable Kristen Stewart worked her high-fashion style at the screening for ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ held at AMC Lincoln Square Theater during the 54th New York Film Festival. The annual film festival came to a close yesterday following a successful two week showcase at Film Society of Lincoln Center.
Here’s more about the Ang Lee-directed film starring Kristen Stewart, Joe Alwyn, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, Steve Martin and Chris Tucker:
Billy Lynn is a 19-year-old Army specialist fighting in Iraq. After he and his comrades barely survive a tense battle that receives broad news coverage, they are celebrated as heroes and brought back home by the Department of Defense. In the United States, they go on a promotional tour across the country which ends in a spectacular halftime show at a Thanksgiving Day football game. There, Lynn recounts the tragic memories of the war and losing his sergeant in a firefight. Source
Shanina Shaik stunned in a sexy silver dress as she attended the official after party to celebrate the release of Kevin Hart’s “What Now?” film, which is based on based on his 2015 stand-up tour of the same name. The film went into wide release last Friday. The beautiful Victoria’s Secret model was accompanied by her (lucky-bastard) fiancé DJ Ruckus.
As for the film, it should be very interesting to see how it performs at the box-office. With a reported budget of nearly $10 million, the film earned a little over $12 million through its first weekend, coming in second overall. Major congrats to Kevin & his team.
According to Wikipedia, the show was filmed live on August 30, 2015 in front of 53,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field. You can watch a trailer below:
