Yes, the holidays are a time for family, togetherness, kindness to your fellow man...and careless overeating followed by a trip to the multiplex when said family time reaches critical mass. Escape crowded living rooms and aunts who don't know when to stop talking with the latest from James Cameron, Wes Anderson, Peter Jackson, Terry Gilliam, Guy Ritchie and Nancy Meyers.
Many of tomorrow's leading ladies have grown up in the spotlight, starting out as kid actors and maturing into young women in front of Hollywood, and the world, while trying to navigate that perilous terrain known as adolescence on the big screen.
The physical, emotional, and, let's face it hormonal, changes notwithstanding, these mini-divas have to seek out age-appropriate material that announces to the world they're no longer little girls while not jumping the gun on the whole growing up thing (see Lindsay Lohan) and, at the same time, continue honing their craft in the hopes of career longevity.
With two fierce females leading the cast of the vampire extravaganza known as The Twilight Saga: New Moon, we've decided to put the question to you: Which of these under-25 actresses has the biggest star potential?
With Roland Emmerich’s epic end-of-the-world adventure 2012 hitting theaters this week, we decided it was high time we take a look back at the best this explosive genre has to offer. From rocketing meteors to angry aliens bent on annihilation, this occasionally formulaic but highly entertaining cinematic tradition includes more movies than one can shake a stick at (the Wikipedia list alone boggles the mind) but after closer inspection, there are only a select few that manage to transcend the chaos.
So if you’re looking for some heavy drama, stunning special effects, star-studded casts, and powerhouse theme songs, then take a look at these essentials and see what happens when fate decides to give humanity a hardy reality check:
High school prom is a rite of passage that’s been at the centre of many a Hollywood movie, with humour largely borne out of the anxieties of the nerdy boys and anxious girls who eagerly, or reluctantly, take part in a lengthy tradition that symbolizes the next step towards adulthood.
But in eye-opening documentary Prom Night in Mississippi laughs and coming-of-age tales are traded for lingering racial tensions symbolized by two separate proms in the small city of Charleston: one for the white kids and one for the black kids, despite the full integration of schools since 1970.
In Prom, Canadian director Paul Saltzman joins forces with native son Morgan Freeman, who has a home near Charleston, and was equally shocked when he first learned of the segregated proms a decade earlier.
After months of waiting, the highly anticipated release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon is finally here! No matter your fan affiliation (Team Jacob and Team Edward fans, I'm looking at you), this is the week you've been waiting for and we've got it all covered from interviews and red carpets, to movie stills and exclusive video. Check it out!
With the release of New Moon just days away, we jumped at the chance to sit down with Kellan Lutz, one of the highly sought-after cast members from this record-breaking franchise. In the comfort of a plush hotel suite in downtown Toronto, the actor dished on playing Emmett Cullen - a key member of the vamp clan, meeting crazy fans and being a part of The Twilight Saga, one of the biggest cultural phenomena Hollywood has ever seen. Check out what he had to say! (Caution: Small spoilers if you haven't read the books.)
