The panel of jurors at the Cannes Film Festival is pretty much always packed with a deep panel of widely respected names, but with Jessica Chastain & Will Smith as the two big ticket names representing Hollywood, this year’s panel definitely has that extra oomph over previous years.
Jessica was all smiles as she appeared sandwiched between Spanish director Pedro Almodovar and Will Smith during a jury photo call held earlier in the day before the opening ceremony later in the evening. We’ve included a few photos of Jessica from the opening ceremony, which also doubled as the premiere for the French drama film “Ismael’s Ghosts” starring Marion Cotillard.

You can tell this is a big industry event when they get names like Jessica Chastain and Mila Kunis to drop what they’re doing and spend a few hours in Vegas! The ‘State of the Industry’ presentation is part of CinemaCon, which according to its website, is the “largest and most important gathering of movie theater owners from around the world.” I’m assuming they’re bribing glitzy names to show-face at the event. For those of you currently in Vegas, try to sneak your way into heavily fortified halls of Caesars Palace to get a selfie with some celebs! The annual trade show runs through March 30.
Here are interviews w/ the three ladies at the event:

Obviously there were a long list of ladies we’d love to post on here, but let’s face it, every entertainment site on the web has the same exact photos. Plus, we no longer have the budget to flood the site with every photo of every notable attendee from major events. It’s the sad reality of low-budget, Z-list blogs, unfortunately. Having said that, if you want to post your favorite celeb, do so below in the comments.
Dangerously low-cut dresses were definitely a favorite among attendees, so we figured we’d focus on a few of our favorites. Make sure to vote for your favorite in the poll below:
I’m wondering if there’s a little awkwardness between George & Eva after all the energy she expended trying to get him to sleep with her a few years back? I feel like George played his cards beautifully with Amal. First of all, she isn’t in the entertainment industry and secondly, they’re both extremely busy people with their respective careers, so it slows down the speed at which their relationship degrades. This might sound a bit cynical, but rather than getting tired of each other within the typical 3 to 5 years, they might get tired of each other around 8 to 10 years. Not bad, right?
Anyway, the couple walked the glamorous red carpet premiere at the Cannes Film Festival for George’s latest film “Money Monster,” which hits theater on May 13. George stars alongside Julia Roberts, Jack O’Connell, Dominic West and Caitriona Balfe. Check the plot & trailer below:

When you account from Internet Time, these photos are pretty much ancient, but we figured we’d run with them anyway. The opening screening and gala dinner of the 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival went beautifully last night as A-list celebrities donned Oscar-esque outfits and hit the world-famous red carpet.
As we mentioned yesterday, the festival opened with Woody Allen’s latest film ‘Cafe Society’ starring Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart, and Jesse Eisenberg. For those interested in more than just photos, check the plot & trailer below:
Set in the 1930s, a young, Bronx-native moves to Hollywood where he falls in love with the secretary of his powerful uncle, an agent to the stars. After returning to New York he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life. Source
Here are photos from the opening gala dinner which followed the screening:

Both ladies looked very sexy while attending the Jazz At Lincoln Center 2016 Gala event on Monday evening. It wasn’t exactly as glitzy as the MET Gala from the previous week, but you can say the same for 99.9% of celeb events.
Jessica Chastain is one of those beautiful women who you’d expect to have great taste in music, so it’s nice to see that she makes time such events. “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” was her latest film that released last month and she has a few others set to drop later in the year.
And finally, some of you guys might remember Brazilian model Daniela Braga from previous couple VS Fashion Shows. Aside from VS, over the years Daniela has worked with a long list of designers & covered a number of A-list fashion mags.
Talk about an A-list line-up! Costars Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron, and Emily Blunt were attendance at ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War‘ premiere in Los Angeles last night. The film will hit theaters on April 22.
The film, which also stars Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, is a prequel to 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” and focuses heavily on the Hunstman’s battle with evil sisters. You can ready more about the plot here.

This is to compliment our two earlier posts featuring photos from the 2016 MTV Movie Awards over the weekend. The annual movie awards catering to a younger MTV-watching audience (wait, kids still watch MTV?!) was held at Warner Bros Studios in Burbank on Saturday evening & broadcast on Sunday night. This was the first time the network opted against a live broadcast.
The big winners were “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for Movie of the Year, Leo for “The Revenant” and Charlize for “Mad Max: Fury Road”. For a complete list of the “winners,” check here.

The 2016 Film Independent Spirit Awards went down the night before the Academy Awards and a long list of celebs were on hand to walk down the blue carpet in Santa Monica Beach. The seemingly laid-back (compared to the Oscars) ceremony was hosted by Kate McKinnon and Kumail Nanjiani.
One interesting thing worth noting about Saturday’s Spirit Awards was that it was free of “The Revenant”—not even a single nomination (for the record, the film “Spotlight” took top honors)! I guess the producers of the event wanted to shower other films with accolades as opposed to simply marching to the drumbeat of the Oscars. For a complete list of the nominees and winners, check here.

As she always tends to do, Jessica Chastain channeled some of her old-school Hollywood charm at the red carpet premiere of her latest film “Crimson Peak.” The premiere was held at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square in NYC.
This is the latest project by Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, who wrote, produced & directed this film. Aside from Jessica, the cast also includes Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam. Here’s more about the film:
Set in Cumbria, England, in a crumbling mansion in a largely rural and mountainous region of northern England in the late 19th century, young author Edith Cushing (Wasikowska) falls in love and marries Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) but then discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be. His home harbors ghostly, mysterious entities, which he and his sister, Lady Lucille Sharpe (Chastain), desperately and fiercely try to hide. Source
