'CBGB' Trailer: '50,000 Bands and 1 Disgusting Bathroom'

When the little hole in the wall that once housed acts like The Talking Heads, Blondie, The Ramones, The Police and Iggy Pop among others ends up getting shut down over some random rent dispute with the owner threatening to steal the urinals, yeah, there's a story there alright.

CBGB* — which stood for "Country, BlueGrass and Blues" in the beginning, though its palette of musicians didn't quite follow suit — might be a thing of the past now that its owner let the business slip into financial disrepair, but it remains legendary within the '70s and '80s rock scene (long hair, guys wearing makeup, big attitudes and all). As this first trailer Randall Miller's "CBGB" (via The Hollywood Reporter) shows, while the film indeed pays proper homage to the many, many impressive acts seen at the famed New York City club, it centers on the man behind the musical moxie, Hilly Kristal (Alan Rickman), and his many financial and familial woes.

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 »

Big studio projects and small indie films alike rounded out their casts this week as show business continues to be booming in Hollywood.

Reese Witherspoon returns to — surprise, surprise — romantic comedy territory as she signs on to headline "The Beard," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The "beard" of the title is a slang reference to a someone who goes out in public with a gay person to give the illusion that he or she is, well, not gay. Secrets, lies and shenanigans will no doubt ensue — and all of them cute, due to the fact that the movie stars Reese Witherspoon. Get More »

Malin Akerman is ready to go Atomic.

The "Watchmen" beauty is set to show off her singing voice once again as she signs on to play Blondie frontwoman Deborah Harry in "CGBG," according to Variety.

Blondie was founded in 1974 by Harry and guitarist Chris Stein and is considered a pioneer in the American New Wave and punk scenes that started explode in the mid-'70s. However, Blondie went on to become Top 40 hitmakers after the release of their album "Parallel Lines" (1978), which featured such hit singles as "Heart of Glass," "Hanging on the Telephone," "Sunday Girl" and "One Way or Another."

Catch Bruce Willis in the New 'Catch .44' Trailer

Anchor Bay

Movies are a funny thing. Case in point: "Catch .44" features an all-star cast (Bruce Willis, Forest Whitaker and Malin Akerman among others) and a high octane plot about a bunch of criminals who double cross each other during a Mexican standoff.

It seems like just the kind of  film that should be making a big splash at the box office -- except it's only being released in a couple cities before going straight to DVD.

Why? Well, that's the big question -- and since we now have our first look at the new trailer for "Catch .44," it's a question you can try to answer for yourself. Should this movie get a wider release? You make the call! Get More »

Forget Three -- John Cusack Is a Magic 'Number'

Guys like Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Robert Downey Jr. are awesome, but for our money, the most underrated superstar in Hollywood is John Cusack. For the past quarter century, all the guy has done is turn out one indelible performance after another, both in classics ("Say Anything") and in films that should have been complete crap but were actually pretty fun just because he was in it ("2012," anyone?).

But can even Cusack make math cool?

Well, we're about to find out, because according to Variety, Cusack has just signed on to star in the upcoming thriller "The Numbers Station" -- and with Cusack on board, we have a feeling the only number you'll need to know now is number one. Get More »

Tom Cruise: movie star… Scientologist… stage mom dad. Wait, what?

Word on the street is that while Tom has been hard at work transforming into the rock-'n'-roll god Stacee Jaxx for his upcoming film "Rock of Ages," the powers that be have locked down one final cast member for the lineup.

You guessed it: The latest A-lister to (reportedly) join the party is Tom's 5-year-old daughter Suri Cruise.

According to Broadway World, details of Suri's role have not been released, but if these rumors are true (we admit we're a little skeptical), the tot would make her acting debut alongside the likes of Malin Akerman, Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Mary J. Blige and, of course, her dad.

Of course, director Adam Shankman has already pretty much dispelled the rumor. Get More »
