123310_D_1145Twenty-five years ago, Back to the Future Part II gave us a glimpse at what Lea Thompson might look like in 2015. But as we rapidly approach that year, we’ve seen that Lea is nothing like her BttF character, Lorraine McFly, turned out to be. Thompson is still a successful Hollywood actress, currently starring in the ABC Family series Switched At Birth. The teen hit has introduced her to a whole new audience - one that didn’t know her from her ‘80s movies - and has made her feel like she’s no longer tied exclusively to the roles that first made her famous.

Switched at Birth airs Monday nights on ABC Family.

goth_39-jada-publicity-two_3195rca-1In theaters this weekend, THE GIVER is a sci-fi adventure based on the extremely popular Newbery Medal-winning young adult novel by LOIS LOWRY. Following last night’s Manhattan premiere party, a press conference was held earlier today to promote the film. But before the conference began, producer/star JEFF BRIDGES took center stage to share a memory of his pal and THE FISHER KING co-star ROBIN WILLIAMS, who tragically died yesterday. Apparently, the sight of iconic Manhattan street character, RADIO-MAN (Seen at left with Robin Williams), put him in a nostalgic mood.

THE GIVER
opens in theaters 8/15

21Now playing in theaters all over the world, Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is proving to be one of the Summer’s most popular blockbusters. Based on a little known (but cultishly admired) Marvel Comic, the story is centered on a mismatched group of unlikely intergalactic antiheroes on a mission to save the universe. Packed with CGI action as well as cheeky self-awareness, the film is directed by JAMES GUNN and stars CHRIS PRATT, ZOE SALDANA, BRADLEY COOPER, VIN DIESEL and DAVE BAUTISTA.

As one of the stars of JAMES CAMERON’S epic sci-fi adventure AVATAR, one would think that ZOE SALDANA is no stranger to the make-up chair. But during our recent interview, she admitted that working on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY was an entirely different situation.


GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is in theaters now.

2It’s being reported that actor/comedian ROBIN WILLIAMS died today at the age of 63. To many he’ll be remembered for his iconic role on the classic television sitcom MORK & MINDY (where he was able to co-star with his friend and mentor JONATHAN WINTERS). For those lucky enough to have seen him in person, the memory of his manic stand-up routines will live forever. And, for movie goers, his Academy Award-winning performance in GOOD WILL HUNTING will stand the test of time as will his roles in such films as THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP, THE DEAD POETS’ SOCIETY, GOOD MORNING VIETNAM, WORLD’S GREATEST DAD, THE BIRDCAGE and THE FISHER KING (to name just a few).

While no cause of death has been officially announced, the sheriff and coroner suspect suicide due to asphyxia.

WILLIAMS was a longtime friend of Hollywood Outbreak and we sat down with him many, many times over the decades. It was during one of those interviews that he talked about his longtime pal JONATHAN WINTERS. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

115Private Practice star Kate Walsh returns to television starring in the new NBC comedy, Bad Judge. Walsh plays a tough, no-nonsense judge, but when she’s not on the bench, she’s a free spirited woman who loves to party. The series is produced by the comedic minds of producer/writer/director Adam McKay (Anchorman & Stepbrothers) and Will Ferrell.

While we already know that Walsh is a gifted dramatic actress, she also has great comedic abilities, and can’t wait to show the audiences her comedic side in Bad Judge.


Bad Judge premieres October 2 on NBC.

113After almost a month in theaters, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES remains in the box office top 10 and is nearing the $200m mark. A reboot of a science-fiction franchise that first hit the screen almost 50 years ago, the current incarnation is a crowd pleasing combination of suspenseful storytelling and state-of-the-art CGI special effects.

Directed by MATT REEVES from a screenplay by MARK BOMBECK, the cast includes GARY OLDMAN, KERI RUSSELL, ANDY SERKIS (in an award-worthy motion-capture performance), JASON CLARKE and KODI SMIT-McPHEE.

For director REEVES, being involved with the APES franchise has been a dream since childhood. When caught on the red carpet at this year’s WonderCon, he talked about connecting with his ‘inner nerd’ and the joy of being at the convention.

WHAT IFDaniel Radcliffe loves movies, plain and simple. He loves making them, he loves watching them, he loves everything about them. Fortunately for him, he was given a golden opportunity to break into the business at age 10, when he was cast as Harry Potter. While he could probably retire with his earnings from those eight movies alone, he continues to dedicate himself to the craft of making movies - not only as an actor, but behind the camera as well. And at the age of 25, he considers himself very fortunate that he not only found his true calling, but that is has been as fulfilling as he expected, and then some. (Click on the media bar below to hear Daniel Radcliffe)
Radcliffe’s new film, the romantic comedy What If, is now playing in limited release.

bones_s10_comicon_poster_r2“Previously on Bones…” When the series ended its ninth season this spring, it did so in spectacular fashion, with guns (literally) blazing. When the dust had settled, Agent Booth (David Boreanaz) was in handcuffs, framed for killing the government assassins who had been sent to kill him. But as Emily Deschanel told us, Booth’s need to defend himself only intensifies this season, as the conspiracy that resulted in Booth’s arrest only deepens. (Click on the media bar below to hear Emily Deschanel)
The new season of Bones premieres Thursday, September 25 on FOX.

111Slated for release sometime next year, LIFE is centered on the relationship between Life Magazine photographer DENNIS STOCK and iconic actor JAMES DEAN. Assigned by the magazine to shoot the rising young actor just prior to the release of EAST OF EDEN, STOCK became close friends with DEAN as they traveled together from Los Angeles to New York to Indiana (DEAN’S childhood home). Set in the 1950’s, the film features portrayals of such show-biz notables as JACK WARNER, JUDY GARLAND, ELIA KAZAN, PIER ANGELI and EARTH KITT.

Directed by ANTON CORBIJN from a screenplay by LUKE DAVIES, LIFE stars ROBERT PATTINSON as STOCK and DANE DeHAAN as DEAN.

In town this week to promote his new film, LIFE WITHOUT BETH, DeHAAN took a moment to talk about playing JAMES DEAN, one of his favorite actors. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

into_the_storm_xlg1In theaters today, INTO THE STORM is a predictable mid-level disaster diversion that spans one day in a small Oklahoma town being ravaged by a series of horrendous tornadoes. Aimed directly at indiscriminate theatergoing YouTubers, the film features more people holding cameras than you’d see at a VidCon meet-and-greet. From professional storm-chasers to heroic (and not so heroic) townies, everybody’s got a camera and a point of view. Directed by STEVEN QUALE (FINAL DESTINATION 5) from a script by JOHN SWETNAM (STEP UP: ALL IN), the cast includes MATT WALSH, RICHARD ARMITAGE, JEREMY SUMPTER, ARLEN ESCARPETA, SARAH WAYNE CALLIES, KYLE DAVIS and JON REEP.

Caught on the red carpet at this year’s WonderCon, co-stars SUMPTER (whose first big role was in the 2003 CGI heavy PETER PAN) and ESCARPETA talked to us about some of the challenges of shooting the film.

INTO THE STORM opens in theaters today.
