Mackenzie Phillips set out for the family vacation of a lifetime with three of his children, but little did he know that it would be a trip he would remember for years to come, and for all the wrong reasons. One day, during a fishing activity, he is forced to turn his gaze of his young daughter Missy for a brief moment, who subsequently disappears. The Wallowa County police discover her body in an isolated shack in the middle of the woods having been abducted and murdered. After that, Mack spirals into a depression letting his grief seep into every corner of his life and even causing him to lose his faith in God. It's then that he discovers a letter inviting him back to the shack signed by someone called Papa. He believes it's God calling him to find peace, and help him come to terms with Missy's death.

Big summer blockbusters are so rarely optimistic that it's tricky to know how to take this movie, its utopian view of the future is a refreshing antidote to both dystopic-nightmare thrillers and those blood-boiling, doom-and-gloom documentaries about how the end of the world is nigh. Even more interesting is the idea that this movie is essentially based on Walt Disney himself, who believed creativity and invention were the key to a happy tomorrow. So it's a bit of a shame that everything feels so childish.
The story centres on the restless Casey (Britt Robertson), an almost frighteningly brainy teenager who's trying to keep Nasa from closing down the launch pad where her dad (Tim McGraw) works. Unknown to her, the eerily ageless young Athena (Raffey Cassidy) is watching, leaving a pin that's a key to a magical glimpse of a parallel space-age future. Investigating this, Casey travels to Houston, where she gets in trouble at a sci-fi collectible shop. Rescued by Athena, they travel to New York to meet Frank (George Clooney), a grumpy old man who was once a wide-eyed inventor like Casey and has known Athena since 1964. Together they work out a way to get back to Tomorrowland to confront its pessimistic leader Nix (Hugh Laurie), who seems to have accepted the fact that the world is falling apart.
The script briefly grazes against big ideas like global poverty and climate change, which gives the film a hint of weight to balance out a plot that is clearly aimed at a 10-year-old. It's all rather simplistic, which means it doesn't quite speak to grown-ups, although the positive approach can't help but catch the interest. Director Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol) keeps the imagery whizzy, with fabulous gadgets and thrilling effects work that beautifully imagines a city of the future. Plus a pretty cool Eiffel Tower revelation. He also makes sure that the characters' intelligence shines through, which allows Robertson and Clooney to inject a sparky sense of rivalry.

Cast and guests arrive at the opening of new Disney sci-fi adventure.
The 'Tomorrowland' premiere turned out a lot of stars on the red carpet this weekend, with George Clooney bringing along his wife (predictably - this couple seems joined at the hip!) Amal Clooney as well as her angel-faced teenage daughter Mia Alamuddin.

Mr. Clooney was his usual dashing self as he hit the premiere of his latest movie, Disney fantasy 'Tomorrowland', suavely dressed in a black suit and chest-bearing black shirt, while wife Amal took chic to a new level with a youthful black and pink number - complete with shades to block out those rays, of course.

Tim McGraw will perform the song at Sunday’s ceremony.
Country legend Glen Campbell is among the Oscar nominees this Sunday, in the best original song category for ‘I'm Not Gonna Miss You’, from the documentary film Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me. The song was written by the singer about his struggle with alzheimer’s disease after being diagnosed in 2011 and it features at the end of the documentary which follows his final tour.

Sunday will be a bittersweet night for the 71 year old’s family, as his wife and daughter will attend the ceremony on his behalf. Campbell now lives in a care facility and his wife told ABC News that these days, the singer is doing very well physically but cognitively, he's declined "quite a bit.”
Casey Newton is a gifted budding scientist, though has occasionally found herself in trouble with the authorities. On one such occasion, she finds herself suddenly in possession of a strange pin she has never seen before, after collecting her belongings at a police station. After picking it up, she is suddenly transported to another world, a futuristic looking world quite unlike her homeland. After the initial shock wears off, she meets a talented inventor named Frank Walker, who tells her of a place where it's literally possible to change the world, to create things that you would never before have believed possible. That place is called Tomorrowland, and Walker needs a companion for his exciting new journey there having been feeling disillusioned from the world around him. Together they must unveil the secrets of the land and uncover their limitless potential. This dazzling Disney adventure is named after the fantasy area of Disneyland which has never before seen screen action. At the movie's helm is double Oscar winning director Brad Bird ('Ratatouille', 'The Iron Giant', 'The Incredibles') alongside Emmy winning screenwriter Damon Lindelof ('Lost', 'Prometheus', 'World War Z'). 'Tomorrowland' was originally set to be called '1952' and is set to be released on May 22nd 2015.
When young science enthusiast Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) fell into a spot of trouble with the local cops and went to retrieve her confiscated belongings from the police station, she did not expect where it would take her. After accidentally being handed a coin shaped red pin bearing a strange blue letter 'T', she is shocked to find herself transported to a strange land, amidst a wheat field surrounding a futuristic looking city under a glorious blue sky. She meets an ageing inventor named Frank Walker (George Clooney) who encourages her to explore Tomorrowland with him; a mysterious dimension in time and space whereby their actions can immediately affect the world; and unveil the secrets behind this mystical land.

That's what you get when you let your heart (hands) win.
Tim McGraw generally seems nice enough, but the country star is very protective of his personal space. Case in point: his most recent gig in Atlanta, when a fan tried to get a little too close for comfort. The video, shared by TMZ, shows McGraw walking down the stage, singing his 2013 hit Truck Yeah, with fans cheering and waving their hands about all around him, as you do.
Tim Mcgraw's presence inspires some extreme reactions in his (mostly female) fanbase.
One overeager fan is then seen grabbing McGraw’s leg, then getting even closer and, as the folks at TMZ put it, may have reached for his “junk”. That alone could have earned her a sexual assault charge in another setting, so the excited McGraw fan should be pretty happy with just getting kicked out of the gig. Presumably, touching below the belt is strictly reserved for Faith Hill.

Both Snoop Dogg and Psy have drawn criticism from fans for a multitude of reasons, here are just a few of them:
In one of the oddest collaborations since Nelly gave country artist Tim Mcgraw a call and asked to bring his Louisiana drawl to the R&B track “Over And Over”, Snoop Dogg has teamed up with South Korean viral success Psy to unleash the track “Hangover” upon the world. It’s not the first time the G-funk master has produced a piece of work with an artist from disparate corners of the music world. He has previously teamed up with Miley Cyrus for the track “Ashtrays and Heartbreaks” during the rapper’s ill-conceived stint as adopting the Rastafarian lifestyle under the moniker of Snoop Lion.
Snoop Dogg and Psy's collaboration has been widely attacked by both of their respective fans.
Debuting in the US on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the video attained over 3.5 million views in 24 hours and currently boasts viewing figures of almost 25 million. But such figures are small fry for K-pop megastar Psy, who has become the first artist to break the 2 billion mark on Youtube. The video itself depicts Snoop and Psy trying various purported South Korean cures for the after effects of excessive inebriation, as well as their clips from their hedonistic exploits from the day before. As for the music itself, it contains all the tropes of Psy’s previous opus- blaring synthesizers and a skewed chorus hook designed to burrow into your brain and resolutely refuse to leave.
