INFOGRAPHIC: The Definitive Hollywood Family Tree

Hollywood: it can feel like a nepotistic, incestuous place. Probably because it is. Generally, movie-type people tend to hitch up with other movie-type people, make smaller movie-type people, and leave you to sort out who's related to who and who just happens to share a last name.

So, for your convenience, we've made some handy charts to keep your famous family trees straight. Is that crazy super-conservative Baldwin related to that crazy super-liberal one, and just how many brothers are there? Those Wayanses can't possibly all be related, can they? Find out below.

In Memoriam: A Tribute To Red Shirts in Cinema


We're not into giving out spoilers, but in the upcoming new psychological horror film "Stoker" by "Oldboy" director Chan-wook Park, a certain character not only doesn't make it out alive, their only purpose in the film seemed to be ... to die.

Looks like someone just had a red shirt moment.

"Red shirt," of course, refers the the classic "Star Trek" habit of having random Enterprise crew members — inevitably wearing a blood red uniform — accompany Spock and Kirk on a dangerous mission, only to die terribly while the main characters get away without a scratch.

So in honor of "Stoker," here's a look at some of our favorite red shirts in film history. Because if someone has to die, it might as well be someone we don't care at all about. Caution: Non-"Stoker" spoilers ahead! Get More »

We've been living in denial for the better part of two decades, but we're now ready to admit it: Adam Sandler makes pretty bad movies. There, we said it.

Well, unless they're movies directed by Paul Thomas Anderson ("Punch-Drunk Love") ... or co-starring Drew Barrymore.

The on-screen lovebirds of "The Wedding Singer" and "50 First Dates" might now be set for that crucial third date as they look to possibly reunite for a new (and currently untitled) romantic comedy, according to Variety.

The film explores the growing phenomenon of "blended families" with the story of a a man and woman who, after a disastrous blind date, unexpectedly find themselves stuck at a holiday resort together with their respective kids from previous marriages. Sandler is attached to star though no official offer has been made to birthday girl Barrymore yet. Get More »

Drew Barrymore Cries For the Whales ... And Everything Else

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore  started crying as little Gertie in "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" and pretty much never stopped.

In "Big Miracle," Drew Barrymore plays a Greenpeace activist who's leading a national effort to save three whales (named Fred, Wilma and Bam Bam, by the way) who are trapped under the ice. In honor of the tears of anger, frustration and eventually joy that she sheds throughout her noble crusade, Vulture has put together a montage of cryin' Drew from over the years (a sort of companion piece to the one starring Julianne Moore from a couple of years ago).
