Force for Change
Back in May, director JJ Abrams introduced an opportunity for anyone to appear in the upcoming Star Wars sequel film The Force Awakens if they made a donation to UNICEF via the Star Wars: Force for Change charity initiative. Today we get to see a just-released Thank You video from Abrams and the cast and crew of Episode VII. As you can see above, this fun video features mostly crewmembers from the set of The Force Awakens … as well as a pair of beloved Star Wars characters … and Abrams himself. Check out the embed above to see how Abrams and co. are giving their thanks this holiday season.
In recent weeks, we’ve seen new mother Eva Mendes in magazines and on TV shows but we’ve seen neither hide nor hair of her babydaddy Ryan Gosling … until now. Back in October, we saw photos of Ryan on the set of his new film The Nice Guys. Today, a new batch of set photos have surfaced which show just how hard Ryan is working on his new movie. Actually, I’m not sure that the photos show Ryan working so much as they show him just looking good. I’m really feeling that mustache on him, aren’t you? And while I’d really love to see photos of Ryan with his newborn daughter, I’ll take any new photos of Ryan Gosling that I can get. Enjoy.
Superman takes to the skies
Back in September we got to see a few photos from the Detroit, MI set of the upcoming superhero epic Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and today we learn that filming production of the movie has moved to Chicago, IL. Fans managed to snap photos of Superman star Henry Cavill in full costume filming scenes for the movie … including a pretty amazing photo of Superman flying. Have a look below and see Henry as Supes in action in Chicago this weekend. More »
The Oscar buzz continues
When we first learned that Reese Witherspoon had been cast in the lead role of the Wild adaptation, I thought this might be huge for her (and I hadn’t read the book yet). I started reading Wild shortly thereafter, and more and more her casting made sense to me. Now that some people have seen the film (including a few of my co-writers at Paste), I’m hearing only good things about her performance, which sounds as raw and as intense as I expected. Her director Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyer’s Club) is raving about how far she went in her performance, and also talking about his own relationship with his mother (whom he lost to cancer recently) and how it inspired his work on the project.

Hello there, daddy
Last month we learned that Ryan Gosling became a first-time father when his babymama Eva Mendes gave birth to their daughter. Earlier this month, we learned that Eva and Ryan decided to name their baby girl Esmerelda Amada. All this time, Ryan has been totally out of the public eye, very likely doting on his newborn daughter … until now. Ryan surfaced earlier today on the Atlanta, GA set of his new film … and as you can see below, the DILF looks extremely hot in his ’70s era attire. Have a look. More »
Along with a SLEW of fun behind the scenes photos from the set
The upcoming sequel film Jurassic World (aka Jurassic Park 4) won’t hit theaters until next June but today we are getting our first look at the first official poster for World and we learn that the film’s official tagline is “The Park is Open” … which I love because it could be construed as a good thing (Yay! The Jurassic World park is open for family fun!) or a bad thing (Oh no! The Jurassic World park is open … and dinosaurs are eating people!). Clever. For the past few months, director Colin Trevorrow has been sharing fun, behind the scenes photos from the set of Jurassic World on his official Twitter profile and I’ve complied a few of them for inclusion in this gallery. We still have many months to go before Jurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015 but when the movie does OPEN, I know we are in for a treat.
And he looks migh-ty FIONE
Last December we got to see a lot of great photos of actor Jamie Dornan on the streets of Vancouver, British Columbia filming scenes for the much-anticipated big screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey and this week he is back in Canada to film reshoots for the film. Reshoots on a movie are usually a sign of trouble but considering the source material, I’m hopeful that these reshoots will actually make the movie better. BUT I DIGRESS. As you can see in the gallery presented here, Jamie is all dolled up in a fine ass suit making his fine ass look FINE (tho, we shouldn’t forget that Jamie also looks pretty damn good when he’s wearing much less clothing, as well). I threw in a few cute photos of Jamie making his arrival in Vancouver at the airport because, really, one can never get enough of Jamie Dornan … am I right? Please enjoy.
Last week we saw a great photo of Magic Mike XXL stars Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello with their respective women Jenna Dewan and Sofia Vergara on the most amazing double date EVER in Savannah, GA (where MM XXL is currently filming) and today we get another photo update from the film set. Channing and Joe were joined by co-stars Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash and Gabriel Iglesias at Mad Mary strip club to film scenes for XXL, which you can see in the photos presented in this gallery. Unfortunately, the guys were fully dressed so … there ain’t much to really gawk at (except for Joe‘s bulging muscles which refuse to be contained by any clothing) but the photos are a fun update as to how things are progressing on the set of Magic Mike XXL so … enjoy :D
Back in May when we got our first look at Ben Affleck in costume as Batman as he will appear in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, we also got our first glimpse of the new Batmobile. Today, courtesy of a lucky fan with access to the Dawn of Justice movie set, we get our first good look at the Batmobile in full. The fan shared a pair of photos of the Batmobile on Instagram which gives us our first good look at Batman‘s new car. Have a look below. More »
On Set, In Detroit
Henry Cavill and Amy Adams are among the latest celebrities to accept The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and today, we get to see the video that they did while on the Detroit, MI set of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The neat thing about this video is that Henry and Amy accepted the challenge in costume as Superman and Lois Lane. Make sure you watch to the very end … this is one challenge that keeps on giving and giving. Hahaha. Enjoy.
