Stuck inside with hours to spare, ordinary people resort to baking bread or taking up embroidery. But celebrities and stunt people are getting a little more creative with their extra time and isolation.
A slew of female celebrities and stuntwomen have banded together for the “Boss Bitch Fight Challenge,” a video of virtual ass-kicking telephone which has gone viral for the amount of famous faces — including Scarlett Johansson, Margot Robbie, Drew Barrymore, Halle Berry, and more — willing to take fake beatings from professional stuntwomen. The whole challenge was started by Quentin Tarantino-verse actor and stuntwoman Zoe Bell, who gathered other Tarantino alums and other female celebrity friends to beat each other up virtually.

Cameron Diaz first shot onto the Hollywood scene like a beautiful firecracker in the fantasy comedy The Mask. Though she may have ultimately been overshadowed by the wild antics of Jim Carrey at maximum insanity, the role was the beginning of a successful career that would see her become a leading lady just a few years later. However, we may have seen the last of Cameron Diaz on the big screen without even knowing it.
Earlier this month, there was an interview with Selma Blair going around where the actress said that her The Sweetest Thing co-star and good friend had quietly retired from acting. However, she then came out shortly after to say that she was just joking. But now we have word from Cameron Diaz herself that she really has retired from acting. Read More »

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are both going back to raunchy comedy under director Jake Kasdan. In Sex Tape, the couple make exactly what the title suggests. But it’s a heat of the moment thing, and in the morning they try to delete the video (recorded on an iPad) only to find that it has been uploaded to the cloud, and shared with all their friends and family. Maybe worry less here about the precise “how” of that process, and just focus on the fact that this is a weird R-rated comedy where product placement and tech paranoia collide like, well, a couple having sex.
And if you’ve wondered just what goes on in the sex tape the couple makes, this new Sex Tape red-band trailer gives up some details. (Spoiler: their checklist is ‘The Joy of Sex.’) Read More »

Jamie Foxx got to play a supervillain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earlier this year, but in this winter’s Annie, he’ll be more like a superhero. Batman, to be specific. Or so his character claims in the new Annie trailer.
Meanwhile, he also seems to think taking in Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) will be kind of like owning a turtle. So if you think about it, the updated Annie is sorta-kinda the heartwarming story of Batman adopting a turtle. Aww. Watch the latest Annie trailer after the jump. Read More »
Remember Gambit? Not the Marvel Comics character, but the remake of a great ’60s caper that originally starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. The remake was scripted by the Coen Brothers — hence our interest in the movie. While that script kicked around town for a few years, it was eventually directed by Michael Hoffman. Colin Firth plays an art dealer who tries to con a wealthy buyer (Alan Rickman) into buying a fake painting, and enlists the help of a Texan lady (Cameron Diaz) to pull off the caper. While the film was finished in 2012 it never got proper US distribution. Until now. People have asked how they could see it, and with the film hitting VOD this weekend, here’s a current Gambit trailer to remind you that it exists. Read More »

In Sex Tape, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play a couple desperately trying to keep their racy video from being seen by anyone. But Sony, of course, wants just the opposite for the film itself. So the studio has put out a new Sex Tape green-band trailer, all the better to appeal to those who couldn’t see that last red-band trailer.
The new edit swaps out some of the sex scenes and F-bombs, replacing them with tamer bits of new footage. It retains the same general structure and ribald sense of humor, though. Watch it after the jump.

Plucky orphan Annie made her Broadway debut over thirty years ago, and started out as a comic book strip character fifty years before that. But Sony’s Annie makes her young and new again, by transporting the action to modern-day New York City.
Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) plays Annie herself, who’s under the not-so-caring care of Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). Her boundless optimism pays off when she crosses paths with Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx), a billionaire running for political office. Watch the new Annie international trailer after the jump.
