Questions and Answers With Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens Getty Images

Vanessa Hudgens has certainly matured on camera exponentially since her Disney Channel and "High School Musical" days. The 24-year-old actress took a walk on the wild side as a gun-toting criminal who wears a neon bikini in Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" and now Hudgens is tackling tougher dramatic material in "The Frozen Ground," which opens in theaters on August 23.

The Scott Walker-directed movie chronicles the real-life 1980s Alaskan hunt for serial killer Robert Hansen, who stalked and killed between 17 and 21 young women and then buried them in the Alaskan wilderness. Hudgens plays Cindy Paulson, the only survivor of Hansen, played by John Cusack. Nicolas Cage stars as the detective trying to track Hansen down, and 50 Cent appears as Pimp Clate Johnson.

We caught up with Hudgens as she talked about getting to meet the real-life Paulson, what rating she thinks the MPAA would bestow upon her, the various substances she's been required to snort on camera for different films and if her family-film days are behind her. Get More »

'The Butler' Trailer is Here to Serve You

If there was ever a more ambitious film than "The Butler," we have yet to discover it.

"Precious" director Lee Daniels efforts to recapitulate — through the real-life eyes of a lone, stolid White House butler — pretty much the entire twentieth century as it related to the American Civil Rights Movement. With a cast list that reads like a flat-out roll call for the Walk of Fame, Daniels presents the working life of Cecil Gaines (real name: Eugene Allen), a man who served eight consecutive U.S. presidents during his career and witnessed history being made first-hand.

The first trailer for "The Butler" has now been released, and boy oh boy are we impressed with all the acute caricaturing going down here ... and all the feels we feel. Get More »

The Many Looks of John Cusack

The Many Faces of John Cusack Miramax / First Look

We've watched him laugh. We've watched him cry. We've watched him dress up as Edgar Allan Poe and solve crimes, for some reason, and regretted it almost immediately, but still, we watched him. And we'll continue to watch him as he makes new movies, like "The Numbers Station," opening April 26.

Yes, we've come a long way with John Cusack as moviegoing public and at this point we feel like we know him. We feel like we might even be besties. Get More »

John Cusack Crunches the 'Numbers Station' in New Trailer

If you're over a certain age, chances are you love John Cusack. After all, in the '80s and '90s, the guy was pretty much solid gold. Since 2000's "High Fidelity," though, he's pretty much appeared in one pile of ass after another, so if you're under a certain age, you can be forgiven for wondering just what the big deal is with this guy.

And the new trailer for his upcoming film "The Numbers Station"? Well, it probably won't change that. Get More »

Is a 'Hot Tub Time Machine' Sequel Heating Up?

New Crime

In 2010's "Hot Tub Time Machine," John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke stayed in a Jacuzzi long past the recommended 15-20-minute period and wound up in 1986. The believability factor was through the roof.

Even though the film didn't bring in a "Hangover"-sized haul at the box office, it has taken the inevitable turn to cult status on DVD, thus The Hollywood Reporter says MGM is in "Hot" pursuit of a sequel. Get More »
