Rashida Jones is a babe of many talents. She first caught our attention as the prickly new girl on NBC's "The Office" and then won even more laughs, and fans, as the dependable and super-pretty Ann (!) Perkins (!) on "Parks and Recreation" and kept up with the boys in laffer I Love You, Man but she's now coming at you as a double threat in her latest, Celeste and Jesse Forever.
Starring in the romantic comedy as Celeste opposite Andy Samberg's Jesse, the story, which she co-wrote with Will McCormack, follows the couple as they are going through a divorce but not letting that get in the way of their super-close friendship, and that's weirding out everyone around them.
The movie, which co-stars Ari Graynor, Elijah Wood, Rob Huebel, Emma Roberts, Chris Messina and Eric Christian Olsen, premiered at Sundance and now has a chance to win over your heart when it gets a limited run starting this weekend.
Find out what spending time with Celeste and Jesse is like with a handful of clips, after the jump.
The last time we bore witness to Paranormal Activity, it was 1988, well it was 2011 but this was a story told in flashback, and we were being creeeeped out by two little sisters named Katie and Kristi. It was the origin story that explained how we got from the first Paranormal Activity to the second and why Katie and Kristi's lives have always been haunted by weird noises, inexplicable apparitions and so much found footage.
Now back in the present, returning directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman are helming the fourth part in this unsettling and very effective series, and you can expect more expert jump scares and silhouetted figures in the background, standing behind unsuspecting victims who are about to meet certain doom. The first trailer gets things off to a spooky start and even though an official synopsis has yet to be released and the connection between the previous stories and this one is unclear, Paranormal Activity 4 looks to be another solid thriller.
Get spooked with the first trailer for Paranormal Activity 4 right now!
The movie, directed by Lee Daniels (Precious), debuted earlier this year at Cannes and caused a stir with a scene featuring Kidman actually urinating on Efron…and no, that’s not in the trailer either. Based on the novel by Peter Dexter, the film takes place in 1960’s Florida swamp country. Matthew McConaughey puts on a shirt to play journalist Ward Jansen who is investigating death-row inmate Hillary Van Wetter played John Cusack. Ward believes to be an innocent man thanks to the help of his number one fan and supporter thanks to Charlotte Bless (Kidman) who finds herself torn between the convicted killer and Ward’s hunky little bro Jack (Efron). And that’s when things get sweaty.

Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman shared only fleeting screen time in the Batman trilogy now concluded. In a recent interview, the two Oscar-winning actors had such warm, relaxed camaraderie that it's a shame they didn't get to show more of it in those films.
Caine and Freeman do appear in the upcoming crime thriller Now You See Me, in which they collaborate on what they promise will be a "really good scene."
Still, the 79-year-old Caine and 75-year-old Freeman are two of the most personable older actors in Hollywood and deserve a full-blown buddy movie of their own, a rare thing for actors their age. So we asked them to pitch a story - and with no advance thought, they hit on a premise with as much potential as most other movies coming out of Hollywood.
After playing real-life baseball fixture Billy Beane in last year's acclaimed Moneyball, and winning an Oscar nomination for his troubles, Brad Pitt is getting low to play enforcer Jackie Cogan in Killing Them Softly, and the first trailer for Andrew Dominik's male-centric look at the bad things bad men do to each other is full of intrigue, moody weather and a lot of machismo.
Sporting slicked-back hair, a goatee and an omnipresent cigarette, Pitt impresses in the first glimpse of this crime story based on George V. Higgins' novel and co-stars James Gandolfini, Richard Perkins and the granddaddy of mobster movies, Ray Liotta.
With Pitt's youthful looks, it feels a little weird to hear him refer to other thugs in the finger-waving "kids these days" manner but in Killing Them Softly, he's clearly not to be messed with, regardless of that chiseled jaw.

It's official. Marvel Studio's Thor sequel, The Dark World, has its villain locked down.
British actor Christopher Eccleston has been tapped for the big bad role of Malekith the Accursed, according to Deadline. For those not up on their comic-book knowledge, the character is a super-villain in the Marvel Universe, the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, and an arch-enemy of the son of Odin.
What do you think of the casting choice? Do you think he can hold his own in big-screen Marvel universe?
There is a career after death, at least if while alive you wielded star power like Marilyn Monroe.
The bombshell actress continues to be a successful celebrity brand even 50 years after she died on Aug. 5, 1962, with a new digital emphasis to complement the wealth of photos, fashion, films and other cultural touchstones she left behind.
Monroe ranked third last year in Forbes' annual list of top deceased celebrity earners, generating $27 million and coming in behind Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley. It was a comeback for the actress, who had fallen off the list the previous two years.
When the list is updated in the fall, it will likely show it has been another lucrative year for the actress' estate, which was purchased in 2010 by Authentic Brands Group and its partner, NECA. The company is in the midst of upgrading Monroe offerings from trinkets to cosmetic lines, spas, salons and apparel.
From Montreal-born director Ruba Nadda (Cairo Time) comes Inescapable - a tense Canadian thriller about a man whose daughter disappears in Damascus, forcing him to return to the country, the danger and the woman he left behind more than three decades ago.

But you don't have to wait until the glitz and glamour of the fest to catch a glimpse of Inescapable and its stars. We've got the exclusive first look trailer for the edge-of-your-seat mystery right here. Check it out now!
