After hitting up the premiere of xXx: Return of Xander Cage with pals Julianne Hough and Jessica Szohr, Nina Dobrev rang in her 28th birthday with a La La Land-themed party on Friday. Nina, who turned 28 on Jan. 9, donned a dress similar to the blue halter one Emma Stone wore in the record-breaking film, while Julianne wowed in a yellow number. Derek Hough channeled Ryan Gosling's character in a suit jacket and matching newsboy cap at the bash, which also included a colorful unicorn cake. Thankfully, some of the guests documented the fun on Instagram. »

Julianne Hough and Derek Hough have got La La Land fever too! The siblings and Dancing With the Stars cast members dressed up like Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling's characters from the musical film at friend Nina Dobrev's 28th birthday party at a bowling alley. Julianne sported a bright yellow dress while Derek wore a light tan suit jacket, a matching newsboy cap, a gray tie and dark pants. The movie depicts a romance between an aspiring actress and jazz musician. It is set in the present but features song and dance numbers that bring to mind the Golden Age of Hollywood. La La Land won seven Golden Globes earlier this month and many expect the film to be nominated »
Ever since the release of Hellboy II: The Golden Army in 2008, Hellboy fans have been clamoring for Hellboy III, to close out the trilogy. Every now and then, either director Guillermo del Toro or star Ron Perlman will offer some sort of an update, but earlier this week, Guillermo del Toro put fans to the ultimate test. He put up a Twitter poll, asking fans to vote either "Yes" or "Hell Yes" for Hellboy 3, promising that he'll set up a meeting between himself, Ron Perlman and Mike Mingola, who created the Hellboy comics, if over 100,000 fans voted in 24 hours. It seems the fans came through, and this meeting will happen soon. Here's what the director had to say on Twitter yesterday morning.
"I spoke with Ron Perlman. He's in for the sit down. Will approach Mignola next. Will keep you posted. Very moved by your love of pt I »
While there are so many movies to look forward to in 2017, there is one that has been 35 years in the making, Blade Runner 2049. The first Blade Runner 2049 trailer debuted last month, which has helped raise anticipation to an all-time high, with Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role as Rick Deckard, alongside Ryan Gosling as an Lapd cop known as K. While we wait for the next trailer, star Lennie James explains how secretive the production really was, even surpassing the secrecy of The Walking Dead
Blade Runner 2049 is set thirty years after the events of the first film, where a new blade runner, Lapd Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former Lapd blade runner who has been missing for 30 years. »
With the Royal Rumble just over a week away, it’s time to take the rampant speculation and fantasy booking to the next level. Personally, my heart wants Samoa Joe to debut and win the Rumble. But my cynical, often disappointed brain knows it’s most likely going to be The Undertaker to set up a Wrestlemania match with the new WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Because that’s a great way to get Roman over. Nobody’ll boo him against The Undertaker.
WWE themselves have gotten in on the fun, posting a short video asking various main roster stars who they want to see as surprise Rumble entrants.
Most interesting, though, was who Seth Rollins picked:

The big standout in the Oscar race this year is, undoubtedly, the musical La La Land. The sweeping show-stopper with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone is an ode to old-school Hollywood filmmaking, especially musicals. One of the movies that.s been cited as an inspiration is the classic, Signin. In The Rain with Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, the latter having passed away only a month ago. But if you.ve been wondering... Read More »

Early in La La Land, Emma Stone’s aspiring actress rises from a restaurant conversation about the unpleasantness of contemporary moviegoing and sprints to the Rialto Theatre to take in Rebel Without a Cause with Ryan Gosling’s intractably traditionalist jazz pianist. The burst of exuberance doesn’t last. The Rialto later closes down and as Gosling waxes poetic about jazz’s declining cultural relevance you begin to feel that for La La Land jazz is just a surrogate for the state of film itself. La La Land is an ode to the magic of movies – at a time when going to the movies has […] »

With La La Land co-stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling possibly dominating TV screens next Tuesday after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveils the Oscar nominations, spare a thought for Lionsgate film distribution head David Spitz.
His toes are already tapping and Spitz, the studio's president of domestic theatrical distribution, may well burst out in song when the best picture Oscar is presented next month. That's because, after sweeping the Golden Globes and continuing to build box-office momentum, the expectations around La La Land as an improbable Hollywood hit are ballooning.

Ellen DeGeneres has become the queen of spoofing the years' biggest films. For example, on Wednesday, she came out with her very own behind-the-scenes take on La La Land, revealing she was actually the one slated for the lead role before Emma Stone. In the cut, the television host jumps into Ryan Gosling's arms, dances around a blue backdrop and puts on her best flirtatious face she'd surely use to captivate audiences. "I shouldn't have dropped out," she quips at the conclusion of the clip, causing the audience to bust up into laughter. The funny moment got us looking back on some of her other hilarious spoofs from years past. Check out all of her »
Ryan Gosling really is the perfect package. Not only is he gorgeous and talented, but he's also incredibly funny. Aside from showing off his charm and wit during late-night appearances, he's been known to throw some hilarious facial expressions on and off screen. In fact, we definitely suggest using one of Ryan's trademark faces for all of life's situations.

Just because Ellen DeGeneres is married to Portia de Rossi doesn't mean she can't enjoy a little side action with Ryan Gosling - and by "side action" I just mean some light cradling and a kiss on the cheek. The La La Land actor stopped by the show a few weeks ago to chat about his latest movie (and his supercute kids), and if you thought the interview would be the end of that story, you were wrong. The editors created a mock featurette for the movie, only this time, Gosling's leading lady isn't Emma Stone. Take a look! Related:La La Land: Is That Really Ryan Gosling Playing the Piano?! »

While we know Emma Stone earned her first Golden Globe Award for her performance in La La Land, initially the role was slated for another Hollywood leading lady. Well, in her dreams, at least. During her daytime talk show on Wednesday, Ellen DeGeneres aired a behind-the-scenes trailer featuring the film's director, Damien Chazelle. However, the audience soon realized the footage was masterfully edited to suggest the comedian had been picked for Stone's character first. "When we were casting up the movie, part of the appeal to me was that you know that they're going to be a couple," Chazelle says while footage of DeGeneres in Ryan Gosling's arms played.

By: Carson Blackwelder
It’s beginning to look like La La Land is going to sweep the entire awards season all the way through the Oscars — and to make history in the process. The L.A.-set musical that is chock full of Hollywood magic has been dominating every major awards show thus far and is poised to tie the record for garnering the most Oscar nominations — and potentially wins — for a film ever.
At this point La La Land has bested its closest competition — such as Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea — at the biggest award shows. For the Critics’ Choice Awards it led the pack with 12 nominations (ultimately winning eight of them) and for the BAFTAs it overshadowed the others with 11 nominations (with results coming on February 12). La La Land’s biggest achievement thus far, though, is probably becoming the most-awarded »

Emma Watson wasn’t the only Hollywood star who almost nabbed Emma Stone‘s role in La La Land. Ellen DeGeneres was also considered to star in Damien Chazelle’s whimsical musical — at least according to her.
The 58-year-old host debuted some “exclusive, behind-the-scenes” footage from the seven-time Golden Globe winner on her show Wednesday, except it showed DeGeneres as Ryan Gosling‘s love interest.

Watching movies is a great pleasure which we do not want to deny under any pretext. Films make us forget about all our troubles, see the places we have not been to and even gain experience we could gain in our ordinary lives. It is like a special reality where everything is possible like staying the same age, discovering new civilizations, or hitting the jackpot on the Nederlandsegokken – online casino website. And actors playing title roles in the movies are very good in guiding viewers to the world of cinematography which is not a hobby for them, but a place of work and a routine process. No wonder, that artists often choose hobbies that are not related to movies. Let’s see how they prefer to spend leisure time and what else activities they like except being in the films.

During The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, the talk show host shared some "exclusive, behind-the-scenes" footage from the modern musical, featuring Gosling with another leading lady.
As for who the mysterious woman was, that would be DeGeneres herself.

While DeGeneres looked pretty comfortable in Gosling's arms, the 36-year-old actor told Et that it was his real co-star, Emma Stone, who carried him through the film.
"Emma had this in the bag, 'cause she'd just come off Cabaret, so I knew she'd be carrying me," Gosling gushed »
