@edgarwright Bigger question... Backstreet Boys or NSync?
Aidan Bloom may look like he's got a lot going for him on the outside, in his prime at 35 with a beautiful wife and two loving children named Grace and Tucker, but the truth is he's floundering. He dreams of being an actor, but that's not a job you can guarantee stability from and thus he no longer has enough money to send his kids to a private school - even with the full to bursting swear jar. He decides to home tutor them after deciding against public school, and soon discovers that he's not the only one in his life who is having problems. With his father having his own issues and his daughter feeling deep regret after cutting off her hair, he starts to realise that he might have to save his family before he himself can be saved.

George Clooney and Sandra Bullock open film festival with space thriller, while 1D fans finally get to see their idols in action on-screen. New trailers promise scares, music history, female laughs and a 50-years-later look at the JFK assassination...
George Clooney and Sandra Bullock brought their star power to opening night at the 70th Venice Film Festival on Wednesday. The event launched with the world premiere of Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity, and the critical buzz has been big for the thriller about two astronauts stranded in space when their shuttle mission is hit by debris. Take a look at photos of Clooney and Bullock attending The 70th Venice Film Festival here.
The big movie in cinemas around the world this week is the documentary One Direction: This Is Us, which has taken a hammering from critics for being far too on-message. But it's likely to keep fans very happy, especially since it reveals things like the fact that Niall Horan strips down to his underpants when he records in the studio. A scene in the film shows him recording this summer's big hit Best Song Ever in his boxers. Find out why Niall says "I sing better naked" here.
In 1973, New York nightclub CBGB opened as a venue for Country, BlueGrass and Blues acts led by music entrepreneur Hilly Kristal. However, it soon became clear that that wasn't the way the music scene was going in the city and he soon began to book new rock and punk bands - excluding all cover and tribute bands - to play regular shows there which helped raise the profile of several musical pioneers including Talking Heads, Blondie, The Ramones and the Patti Smith Group. It wasn't the easiest ride for Kristal, however, who suffered many money troubles due to his vision and ambition for the bands that he showcased, as well as much scrutiny over the general poor health and safety of the venue. Nonetheless (and despite its closure in 2006), it will always been known as the kick off point for so many 70s and 80s bands.
Randall Miller ('Nobel Son', 'Bottle Shock', 'Houseguest') directs this music drama alongside his frequent writing partner Jody Savin as it follows the highs and lows of Hilly Kristal's life and ambition to give innovative local bands a chance at success. The movie will premiere at the CBGB Festival over its October 10th-13th weekend; not far off the anniversary of its 2006 official closure.
The reason behind the fire at Ashley Greene's has been identified, but there is still a lot of work to be done before anyone can move back in.
The reason behind the blaze, which devastated Ashley Greene’s apartment on Friday, has now been found.
According to a TMZ report, the preliminary investigation has determined that the fire started from an unattended candle in Greene’s condo, with Ashley herself, her boyfriend and her brother asleep in the apartment at the time. The firefighters managed to take care of the blaze, but not before it caused considerable damage. Additionally, according to Celebuzz.com, when the Greene household had evacuated the building, they remembered that Ashley’s dogs had been left inside, but by that time it was too late. One of the dogs was saved, but the other perished in the fire.
“She is absolutely distraught,” a neighbor explained. ”She is a really sweet person and a total animal lover, so this is very sad.” The friendly neighbor also added: “Ashley is well liked here and her apartment has been totally destroyed but the fire did not spread throughout the building,” the fellow resident added. “Fortunately, nobody was injured.”
Ashley Greene loses one dog in fire
The apartment of Ashley Green was ablaze yesterday, taking the lives of one of her two dogs. Her, her boyfriend and brother were all able to escape, though, after the blaze started on the sofa. The 26-year-old Twilight actress was seen sobbing, cradling the unfortunate dog that didn’t make it out of the dramatic fire.
"We were dispatched at 9:50 a.m. PST to reports of a highrise fire," Inspector Quvondo Johnson of the Los Angeles County Fire Department told the New York Daily News. "We did see smoke and fire from the third floor when we arrived. Based on the occupany load of the building, we quickly raised it to a two alarm fire." Several residents tried to tackle the blaze with fire extinguishers before at least 10 fire trucks hurtled to the building, which was once lived in by Marilyn Monroe. The fire was quickly brought under control and extinguished just after 10am following a 9.50am emergency call. An eyewitness explained to The Daily Mail, “It was completely burnt out, [Greene's] whole apartment was burnt to a crisp. All the windows were blown out with smoke billowing out of them. All of the building had been evacuated and all of the residence were outside. Some looked scared, some were angry.”

Fresh from her recent court appearances, it was a disheveled looking Lindsay Lohan that took to the amFAR Awards red carpet in New York last night (February 6, 2013). The star has been in court again after allegations that she broke the terms of her probation by getting into another car-relates scrape. Various reports have been knocking around that she's struggling with the ongoing troubles in her life - albeit many of them self-inflicted - and she looked less than 100% last night.
It's that time of year again! The nominations for this year's Razzies have been announced, with Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 - which made a ridiculous $814 million at the box office - leading the way with 11 nominations, including Worst Film and Worst Sequel. A spoof of the Academy Awards, this year's Razzies' picks arrived just one day before Thursday's Oscar nominations. So which directors, actors and actresses will have let out a giant, "NOOOOOOOOOOOO" when catching wind of the infamous nominations today? And perhaps more importantly, who should win (or lose). Which movies and performances really were the worst of the worst? Here goes.

With a flurry of bonkers action and cross-species bonding, The Twilight Saga surges to a howling conclusion that has more attitude in it than all four previous films put together. There's no time for moping now, as things build to a crescendo of girly emotion, portentous pronouncements and more decapitations than you can count. Even the plot itself gets rather playful.
We pick things up immediately after Part 1 ended: Bella (Kristen) is getting used to her heightened vampire senses and intense lovemaking prowess with her new husband Edward (Pattinson), while their daughter Renesmee (Foy) ages alarmingly from infancy to about 10 in just a few weeks, overseen by soulmate-protector wolf-boy Jacob (Lautner). But the ruling Volturi boss (Sheen) has been misinformed that Renesmee is a feared immortal child, rather than a rare but apparently harmless human-vampire hybrid. As the Volturi army heads to Seattle to obliterate Edward and the Cullen clan (including Facinelli, Reaser, Greene and Lutz), the Cullens draft in an army of their own from around the world.
Essentially the film is a long build-up to a big showdown, as everyone jostles for position. This makes the film feel much pacier than the earlier chapters, as we jump from scene to scene while the Cullens prepare for the onslaught. Many scenes involve the introduction of the vampires who support their effort, and like X-men many have some sort of supernatural ability that can aid the fight. Thankfully, director Condon refuses to take this nonsense seriously, and has quite a lot of fun with the various story elements. He also gleefully ramps up the tetchy interaction between Jacob and Edward, and even makes a joke about the fact that actors playing vampires must wear red contact lenses.

Kristen Stewart stole all the headlines after the Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere in Los Angeles this week, wearing a lacy floor length Zuhaur Murad gown that left little to the imagination. The designer is favoured by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, so it was a little odd to see the more casual Stewart in the blingy dress.
The actress has actually donned sheer dresses before, most recently at the Snow White and the Huntsman premiere where she was spotted getting a little too close to director Rupert Sanders. It emerged that the pair had been having an affair, leading to the end of her relationship with Robert Pattinson.

The stars of The Twilight Saga walked down the red carpet for a premiere of the franchise for the last ever time last night (November 12) and there was no surprise which two of the cast were taking center stage, with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson making a public reunion after promotional trails that have seen them take on different territories. The pair looked happy to be in each other's company, memories of their acrimonious summer seemingly all but forgotten as they lit up the red carpet in Los Angeles.
