2010 had a veritable cornucopia of big screen offerings for movie fans - from trips down the rabbit hole, to boy wizards, to flying dragons, to dot com dramas - but what does 2011 have in store? Well that same boy wizard is set to appear on screen again, in the final part of one of the most successful series of all time, and as if that wasn't enough we've got mutant prequels, vampire love stories and one very famous willy nilly silly ole bear. Check out our guide to just some of the movies coming your way over the next twelve months.
For months, the actress has been haunted by her inability, or unwillingness, to shake a 3 1/2 year old drunken driving case that resulted in two rehab stints and two trips to jail in 2010 alone.
A self-acknowledged addict, Lohan remains under investigation for an alleged attack on a rehab worker at the Betty Ford Center and she could land back in jail for six months if charged with misdemeanor battery or another probation violation.
If Lohan remains out of trouble, a judge could relax the terms of her sentence in late February, ending a cycle of court hearings and jail threats that have loomed consistently since May.
Friend and journalist Andrew Richardson said Monday that Postlethwaite died in a hospital Sunday.
The actor was instantly recognizable for his unusually shaped face - with prominent cheekbones that gave him a lean, rugged look - and his intense eyes. He was not conventionally handsome like many film stars but had a powerful presence and authenticity on screen and on stage.
His extended battle against cancer was well documented in the local newspapers where he lived in rural Shropshire, 170 miles northwest of London.
Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller's Little Fockers remained the top draw at the weekend box office with $26.3 million, according to studio estimates.
It was closely followed by Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon's Western True Grit, which was No. 2 for the second-straight weekend with $24.5 million.
Little Fockers, released by Universal, raised its domestic haul to $103.2 million. Paramount's True Grit lifted its total to $86.8 million, becoming the top-grossing film ever from directors Joel and Ethan Coen, whose previous best was $74.3 million for No Country for Old Men.
With no new wide releases out over New Year's weekend, the Hollywood top-10 lined up largely the same as it did over the Christmas holiday.
In an e-mail Monday to The Associated Press, Cindy Guagenti says she has "no further information at this time," though People magazine has quoted a source as saying, "He is in there for drinking and depression, not hard drugs. Rehab was inevitable."
The source goes on to say that dealing with a broken heart has taken its toll on the actor, who recently admitted to Howard Stern that his psychologist thinks he's having a "nervous breakdown" and admitted to "drinking a lot."
Arquette and "Friends" alum Courteney Cox announced their separation in October after 11 years of marriage.
Feel free to question Ryan Gosling’s idea of romance. The London, Ontario-born actor believes his new film, Blue Valentine, is a deeply romantic affair despite the fact that it chronicles the painful unravelling of a marriage.
"Yeah, what the f-ck was he thinking," Gosling says, laughing at his own take on the movie during an interview at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Looking relaxed in a neatly pressed dress shirt and jeans, the 30-year-old is quick to point out what he meant is that each of us defines romance differently. "We tried to make an objective portrait of this couple’s love story so it can be interpreted as however you want," he says. "It's like that line in the song, 'Baby, baby, where did our love go?' I like that song, and it’s a sad sentiment, but it's just a question."
After Ebert himself addressed rumours and rumblings about who would replace previously-announced co-host Elvis Mitchell on Twitter, the formal announcement came today that Vishnevetsky (vish-nuh-VET-skee), 24, who writes for the online film website Mubi and contributes to the Chicago Reader, would be taking his place.
No reason was given for the departure of Mitchell, a former New York Times film critic.
Vishnevetsky, a native of Russia, shared the news on his Facebook with the cheeky message "Surprise" and linked to a story about his appointment.
