The Disaster Artist Trailer

Tommu Wiseau is an ever secretive and Louisiana-born filmmaker who directed, wrote and starred in the 2003 romantic drama 'The Room' with Greg Sestero. It's a movie that has become a cult hit among film-lovers for all the wrong reasons, as it's considered to be one of the worst films ever made.

It follows the love triangle between banker named Johnny (Tommy's character), his lying wife Lisa ( protrayed by Juliette Danielle) and his best friend Mark (who is played by Greg Sestero). Amongst the random subplots that seemingly have no relation to the plot itself, we see Johnny struggling to quash Lisa's stories that she is the victim of domestic abuse.

James Franco stars as the filmmaker while his brother Dave Franco plays Greg Sestero in 'The Disaster Artist'; a comedic retelling of Sestero's 2013 memoir and a look at the making of this iconic flick. Amusingly Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero also star in this new movie - though they portray characters Henry and the casting agent respectively. Plus, Sestero previously claimed that Wiseau would only agree to this adaptation if he would be played by either James Franco or Johnny Depp.

Power couple Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith, the beacon of hope and an icon of longevity when it come to Hollywood relationships, have split after nearly 19 years together. The news has shocked fans who had always believed that the couple were still happy together in their long marriage, particularly since their affectionate displays just earlier this year.

Melanie Griffiths and Antonio Banderas are divorcing after 18 seemingly happy years together. The couple's separation was uncovered by a US entertainment website on Friday (6th June).

Cue the unpleasant tattoo removal! Melanie Griffiths and Antonio Banderas are divorcing and Griffith's heart tattoo of Antonio's name will certainly need to go. Just remember the unfortunate Winona Rider-Johnny Depp 'Wino Forever' debacle. But, besides Griffiths' lack of foresight, why are the couple separating?

Sources speaking to TMZ, who first broke the news, claim the divorce is amicable. However, Griffiths filed the paperwork and the documents cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for their separation. The 56-year-old actress is also asking for spousal support and joint custody of their daughter Stella. Fortunately, should proceedings take a turn for the worst, custody won't be an issue for long as Stella turns 18 in September. The separation of property may cause some problems as the couple have numerous homes both in the US and in Banderas' native Spain.

Reese Witherspoon Names Baby Tennessee James Toth

By Jack de Aguilar on 28 September 2012

Reese Witherspoon Ryan Phillippe Melanie Griffith Don Johnson Joaquin Phoenix

Reese Witherspoon has named her new baby boy Tennessee James, reports The Huffington Post. He was born yesterday (September 27th).

The 36-year-old's third child is guaranteed a shot at acting with a name like that. Witherspoon already has two little ones from her previous marriage with Ryan Phillippe; Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8. Linda Rosenkrantz, co-founder of Nameberry.com, has some explanations behind naming techniques employed by parents. "It's a trend that had its roots starting in the late 1980s," she said," with several celebs picking names from the American West, like Austin, Dallas and Dakota, including Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, whose now grown daughter Dakota is the star of a new sitcom. But lately the trend seems to be heating up and much more widespread." Celebrities seem to be obsessed with choosing never-heard-before names for their offspring, and are looking far and wide for names that fit the bill: "The current trend seems to be really exotic-sounding spots, like Morocco, Egypt and Asia, and states rather than countries or cities -- Alabama, Arizona, Indiana and yes, Tennessee."

Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon made her name in 2001, with her breakout role as Elle Woods in the box office hit Legally Blonde, after bagging a Golden Globe nomination for the critically acclaimed Election. She also garnered critical praise for her performance in Walk The Line alongside Joaquin Phoenix.

Tempo Review

By Christopher Null

Terrible

No matter how large your crush on Rachael Leigh Cook might be, do not see Tempo. It'll ruin your image of her forever. In this pathetic film, Cook is an oblivious American inexplicably brought to Paris to work in an ultra-luxe jewelry shop -- which is in the midst of being cased by a young robber (Hugh Dancy) and his geriatric girlfriend (Melanie Griffith). Love triangle develops, and robbery goes badly (we see it's aftermath, Reservoir Dogs-style, in the first scene). Unfortunately, Tempo needs to up its body count by at least three, and in the first 10 minutes of the film, to merit anything beyond a "you must avoid this film!" rating.
