Warren Beatty writes, directs and stars in the new movie Rules Don't Apply.
Marla Mabrey could be the next talk of the town, having already made a name for herself by being named the local beauty queen in the small town she grew up in, much bigger things await the brunette beauty. Hollywood is on her doorstep and with a little luck she's about to become one of the biggest actresses the town knows.
The year is 1958 and Marla is accompanied to the city by her mother having grown up in a strict Baptist environment, some people might judge Marla as being a little frigid, especially as the city is just on the brink of a feminist uprising. She doesn't drink, smoke or believe in premarital sex but the city might just loosen Marla up and introduce her to a few vices she never thought she'd take up.

After splitting with actress and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo last year, Nick Jonas has been linked to a number of female stars. But in a very revealing interview about his dating life, the former Jonas Brother admitted he’s been enjoying spending time as of late with Lily Collins, actress and daughter of drummer Phil Collins.
Nick Jonas has been enjoying dates with Lily Collins.
“We went out a couple of times. She is amazing,” he told The Sun. “We have known each other for years, just running in the same circles.” When asked if he’d met Lily’s famous father Nick added: “ I didn’t meet him. I am a huge fan. I’ve been to one of his shows with Genesis at the Hollywood Bowl. It was great."

We're sure that Lily Collins is on her way to being as big as Jennifer Lawrence, but who is 25 year old actress?
Lily Collins isn’t just the daughter of Phil Collins. The stunning 25 year old actress and model began acting when she was just two years old, starring in the BBC series Growing Pains. Now sure, it may have been easier for her to break into the business because of her famous dad, but Lily has never been averse to hard work. When she was still just a teenager Collins began writing her own column NY Confidential for British mag Elle Girl, also contributing to Seventeen, Teen Vogue and the Los Angeles Times supplement magazines.

In 2007 Chanel picked her to wear one of their gowns to the Bal des Debutantes in Paris and in 2008 Spanish Glamour magazine chose Lily as their “International Model of the Year”, as well as featuring her on the cover. In 2009 she starred in The Blind Side, the film for which Sandra Bullock won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Collins played the daughter of Bullock’s character, Collins Tuohy. She has since gone on to star in Priest, alongside Paul Bettany, as well as playing Samantha in Stuck in Love, which she starred in with Bettany’s wife, Jennifer Connelly and Greg Kinnear.

[Spoilers] Fisticuffs, dancing, romance and secrets as we delve into the throng of season 4.
The second episode of Downton Abbey's fourth season managed to pull in 9.6 million viewers according to Inquisitr - beating the premiere episode last week. Ratings are expected to be equally impressive for the American premiere of season 4, set to air in January.
Matthew's Death Devastated Downton.
As rating rose, so did the widowed Lady Mary's spirits as the doom and gloom of episode one's grieving was lightened with some dancing. Although Mary (Michelle Dockery) did not join in with said dancing despite the invitation from Cousin Rose (Lily James), there was a palpable optimism in the air as the Lady moved out of her slump and back into the land of the living.
How on earth has the young actress earned such a risky accolade?
Lily Collins has been names the "most dangerous celebrity" of the year by security company McAfee after it was discovered that typing in the 24 year-old Mortal Instruments actress' name yielded more "risky" results, i.e. malicious websites, than any other.
She May Look Harmless But...
Though it may not be an accolade to be proud of, Lily being identified as the most virus-laden online name of the year serves as a warning for those who seek information on their favorite stars, films, or TV shows: cybercriminals are adept at taking advantage of the latest cultural trends to net unsuspecting web surfers.

'Lee Daniels' The Butler' has remained at the top of the US Box Office for the second consecutive week. 'We're the Millers' has also retained its position at no.2 for the third week.
Lee Daniels' The Butler has retained its position at No.1 in the US Weekend Box Office for the second week. The movie is an historical epic which follows the true story of Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), a black butler who served at the White House through the offices of eight presidents. Whitaker is supported by a cast of award winning actors including Oprah Winfrey, Alan Rickman, Josh Cusack and Robin Williams.

This weekend Lee Daniels' The Butler may not have been, financially, as successful as last weekend. It made over $17 million this week as opposed to the $25 million it earned in its opening weekend. Meanwhile We're the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, made $13 million down from $17 million last weekend. The comedy made a similar amount to The Butler in its opening weekend ($26 million) yet has continued, by comparison, to be more financially profitable.

Fans of Cassandra Clare's book series won't mind that this film is overcrowded and chaotic, but the uninitiated will be worn out by what feels like a superficial mash-up of leather-clad stereotypes. Director Zwart (who remade The Karate Kid) certainly creates a lively sense of energy, zipping through each scene as if he's trying to cram every moment in the book into two hours. But as a result, nothing grabs hold.
Our hero is Clary (Collins), a New York teen whose mother (Headey) never told her that she was a Shadowhunter, a half-angel whose job is to protect humanity from demons. But just as she meets goth dreamboat Shadowhunter Jace (Campbell Bower), her mom is kidnapped. So she and her best pal Simon (Sheehan), who has a secret crush on her, travel with Jace into the city's underworld of angels, demons, werewolves and vampires. At the secret Shadowhunter headquarters, she meets leader Hodge (Harris) as well as siblings Alec and Isabelle (Zegers and West). And everyone warns her about the villainous Valentine (Meyers), who has some sort of nefarious master plan involving Clary and her magical cup.
The film is structured as a series of quests, as Clary learns about her supernatural abilities by visiting the City of Bones under a cemetery, breaking into a church to collect a stash of demon-fighting weapons, consulting with a variety of magical creatures, and so on. But these individual sequences never quite connect together into a story with any momentum. It's simply impossible to get involved in these events without being able to identify with the characters, none of whom are properly developed. Obviously, readers of the books won't have this problem, but such a fragmented film is unlikely to draw new fans to the franchise.

Critics have been quick to denounce the latest YA fantasy movie as just another 'Twilight' rehash.
Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has not been treated kindly by critics. The movie adaptation of author Cassandra Clare's six-part young adult fantasy series has been found to have too many similarities to Stephenie Meyer's vampire novels, too soon after Twilight.
The Young Castt Assemble In The Supernatural Action Adventure.
The trailer itself is laden with plotlines that have become clichéd in the fantasy drama. A young girl named Clary (Lily Collins) reaches the end of her teens without finding out she's not a "Mundane" (yep, this one has words for "normal" humans too). In fact, unbeknownst to the wide-eyed yet determined female protagonist, she has the powers of a 'Shadowhunter' - angelic beings whose job it is to rid the world of demons.

Critics and fans aren't impressed by the latest teen novels to be given the Hollywood touch. Should Tinsel Town hold off on the fantasy franchises for now?
Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has been released in movie form and is the latest in a line of teen fiction adaptations to take flight on screen.
The floodgates have been opened now with Hollywood seemingly rushing to turn as many fiction series into movies as possible. With nerd culture suddenly trendy, it's now seen as cool to be openly enraptured by a character or plotline and Comic-Con type events where new releases are trumpeted are bigger than ever.
Lily Collins Plays 'Clary.'
The teen fantasy failed to delight the press.
In a cinematic landscape that includes Harry Potter and Twilight shapes mountains, there isn’t much room for another supernatural teenage escape pod. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has attempted to muscle in there unnoticed, but the critics have found it out.
Teenagers with attitude (and actual weapons)
The story follows a familiar theme of the genre: young teenager – this time Lily Collins as Clary – finds out she can’t just get drunk at 16, moan about homework and eventually marry and have two kids because she’s got to go and save the world. Clary is next in a long line of demon slayers, and has to fulfil her destiny to fight off evil. Having teamed up with people like her, she descends to the dangerous alternate New York called Downworld.

'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' is released in UK and US cinemas today (Wednesday 21 August). Although the movie has been compared to such major franchises as 'Harry Potter' and 'The Twilight Saga', the film has been universally panned by critics.
Fans of supernatural fantasy are likely to be disappointed by The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones if critics' reviews are anything to go by. The film is released in the UK and US today (Wednesday 21st August).

The Mortal Instruments is based on the best-selling series of teen fiction books by Cassandra Clare. According to IMDb, the fantasy movie follows teen Clary Fray (Lily Collins) who discovers she is descended from a race of warriors destined to protect the world from supernatural and evil entities. The film is set in an alternative New York called 'Downworld'. Clary is helped by other warriors, played by Jamie Campbell Bower (The Twilight Saga); Kevin Zegers (Gossip Girl); Jemima West (The Borgias); and Robert Sheehan (Misfits).
Lily Collins and director Burr Steers have been picked to finally bring Pride & Prejudice & Zombies to the screen.
Lily Collins will be able to add butt-kicking action star/period actress to her resumé soon, as she has been cast as the lead actress in the on-again-off-again movie adaptation of the mash-up novel Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, Variety have reported. The actress has previously held similar roles in Mirror Mirror and the upcoming adaptation of the teen-fantasy novel The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
The movie reworking of author Seth Grahame-Smith's retelling of Pride & Prejudice, with added zombies, has been floating around Hollywood for some time now, with the first few attempts to make the film being dropped after too many would-be directors abandoned the project. The film has gained new financing though, from would-be Miss Bennet Natalie Portman as well as Annette Savitch of Handsomecharlie films, Sean McKittrick of Darko Entertainment and Allison Shearmur of Allison Shearmur Productions.

Lily Collins appears to have landed her biggest, and goriest role to date.
Lily Collins, the young British star who rose to fame in Mirror Mirror, will play the lead in the big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It's been a long road for the project, which began with producer Natalie Portman deciding she would play the list. Things soon changed when scheduling conflicts got in the way, while the intended director David O'Russell always left the project. A revolving door of lead actresses, reportedly including Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson, sniffed around the movie, though Collins was able to commit. Charlie St. Cloud director Burr Steers is reportedly in line to direct, according to Empire magazine.
The script - still credited to O'Russell - closely follows Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice, though sees a dangerous conflict against a zombie apocalypse in late 18th century England. Lizzie Bennett (played by Collins) will be tasked with fighting the undead.
Hollywood is hot for zombies at the moment, with recent flick 'Warm Bodies' seemingly coming from nowhere to make over $110 million worldwide. If World War Z proves to be as big a success as expected this summer, the team behind Pride and Prejudice and Zombies may well be rubbing their hands together. Collins has plenty of time to boost of profile and she next stars in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, which hits theaters on August 23, 2013.
Stuck In Love boasts an impressive cast including a cameo from Stephen King.
A trailer for 'Stuck In Love,' the new comedy-drama starring Greg Kinnear, Lily Collins and Jennifer Connelly, is here! The movie follows William Borgens (Kinnear), a once highly regarded novelist whose wife (Connelly) leaves him for a younger, more handsome man. William is unable to write a single word in light of the heart-breaking divorce and spends his days spying on his ex-wife through her window.
However, his pretty friend-with-benefits, played by Kristin Bell, does her best to get him back into the dating game, picking out his outfits and setting up an online dating profile. Elsewhere, his promiscuous daughter (Collins) is beginning to forge her own career and gets her first book published. His son Rusty, an aspiring writer, tries to show a troubled and vulnerable girl that he is the guy to her. It all looks good fun, and Kinnear is always good value for money, especially in the self-deprecating, down-on-his-luck creative type roles.
Next year looks set to be a seminal year for movies. Forget sequels and the so-called impending apocalypse; 2013 is all about beginnings as we discover the dubious past of 'The Wizard of Oz' in upcoming sequel 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' and how loveable 'Monsters, Inc.' protagonists Sulley and Mike got qualified to become scarers. Move over 'Breaking Dawn', 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'Skyfall', and let's see what 2013 has in store! There have been plenty of dodgy trailers come out for 2013 releases, but here are ten of the trailers we consider worthy of your time!

Clary Fray has been made to live as a normal girl all her life with her mother making sure she never discovers who she truly is.

Director: Harald Zwart
While it's too uneven and corny to be a classic, it's still a lot of fun.
After the King disappears, his daughter Snow White (Collins) is raised by her conniving step-mother (Roberts), who plots with her right-hand man (Lane) to steal the kingdom from Snow. Then handsome Prince Alcott (Hammer) arrives and shakes things up, immediately falling for Snow, which sends the queen into even crazier fits of jealousy. She sends Snow into the woods to be eaten by a mythical beast, but Snow instead befriends a gang of dwarf bandits (Povinelli, Klebba, Saraceno, Prentice, Gnoffo and Woodburn), who teach her how to fight back.

Nathan (Lautner) is a lively Pittsburgh teen with even livelier parents (Isaacs and Bello), although he sees a shrink (Weaver) to keep his anger issues in check. While working on a school project with childhood crush Karen (Collins), he stumbles across a missing-child website with a picture of him at age 3.
Suddenly he doubts who he really is, and indeed he and Karen have uncovered a secret involving a foreign agent (Nyqvist) and a CIA boss (Molina) who are both desperate to get their hands on some important information.
