Last time, while she was on the promo train for "Identity Thief," the peachy comedienne fell victim to some very poor critical phrase-age concerning her weight (which we're still kinda reeling over, by the way) and whaddya know? With another movie on the way, the heat is back on the giggly gal once again — this time with her as the subject of one of the most faily Photoshop efforts ever. Seriously, ever. Get More »
Remember the feeling you used to get as a child on Christmas morning? Well, that's the feeling movie fans and movie stars alike get during the Cannes Film Festival, as one new project after another is unveiled like the world's most amazing array of stocking stuffers.
And according to The Hollywood Reporter, among those opening cinematic presents this weekend were Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, Saoirse Ronan, Amy Adams, Garrett Hedlund, Jennifer Hudson, Simon Pegg, Susan Sarandon and Ben Kingsley.
Some of the Oscar noms for Best Picture have some of us scratching our heads ("War Horse"… really?), which is why we're thrilled that some person with too much time on their hands genius put together infographics to help explain these critics' darlings.
From pie charts about what "The Descendants"' George Clooney looks like in a Hawaiian shirt (with a segment marked as a "Trader Joe's cashier"), to how the powers-that-be make "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"'s Sandra Bullock seem Jewish (frizzy hair dominates), to a bar graph revealing all the places "The Artist" thinks it's OK to bring your dog (suicide den included!), these visual aids prove as informative as they are inspired.

Director Alfonso Cuaron is trying to inject a bit of realism into his upcoming science fiction thriller, "Gravity," by having the actors wear no makeup, according to USA Today.

What do these 30 women have in common (besides their obvious hotness)? They're all poised to take things to the next level in 2012.
The roles are bigger, and the spotlight has never been brighter for these female thespians. Whether they're launching a new potential trilogy or making their first leap into the comedy arena, we salute these actresses for taking on roles that carry major risks and possibly major rewards.
While films like "United 93" and "World Trade Center" have attempted to tackle the tragedy of 9/11 head-on in a visceral way, Stephen Daldry's new drama "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" tries its hand at exploring the aftermath.
Oskar is a peculiar, borderline autistic kid who loses his dad Thomas (Tom Hanks) in the 2001 terrorist attacks, and as his mother (Sandra Bullock) grieves he takes a picaresque journey across New York City to find his dad's locked box, to which he has the key. Start the journey with him in these five clips from the film.
You better get a box of Kleenex before watching this one.
Whether it's brilliant marketing or shameless manipulation (and it's ultimately probably a lot of both), setting images of a newly fatherless young boy running around a New York City reeling in the aftermath of 9/11 to U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name" is guaranteed to create something of a strong emotional response.
