Hally Berry and Gabriel Aubry reach 'amicable agreement'

Attorneys for Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend have settled court issues that arose after a Thanksgiving Day fight at the actress’ home.

The fisticuffs involved Berry’s ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and her fiance, actor Olivier Martinez. Aubry was arrested after the fight, which left him with a black eye, a broken rib and other injuries.

Aubry obtained a temporary restraining order against Martinez. The model and Berry have been battling over custody of their 4-year-old daughter for months and have appeared twice in a family law court since the fight.

Blair Berk, an attorney for Berry, and Shawn Holley, who represents Aubry, released a statement after Thursday’s hearing that said the two sides had reached an amicable agreement.

No details were released, and the attorneys declined to answer questions.

New 'Movie 43' poster as saucy as the celeb-filled movie -- EXCLUSIVE

Movie-43_510x756.jpg

What’s curvaceous and a bit naughty, with a greenish palor? This exclusive poster, below, for the upcoming mega celebrity-filled ensemble comedy Movie 43!

Touted as “The biggest cast every assembled, for the most outrageous comedy ever made,” the poster boasts a bada-boom outline of a greenish woman’s body with the movie’s title as the, er, crotch clincher. Helmed by several directors, including Peter Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber), the film stars a serious litany of A-list names, including — take a long breath — Halle Berry, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Elizabeth Banks, Kate Bosworth, Gerard Butler, Kieran Culkin, Josh Duhamel, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Richard Gere, Terrence Howard, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Knoxville, Chloe Moretz, Justin Long, Leslie Bibb, Liev Schreiber, Seann William Scott, Emma Stone, Jason Sudeikis, and Uma Thurman.

“Never before have such huge actors pushed the envelope so much,” Farrelly told EW last month, giving us the lowdown on scenes ranging from Winslet on a crazy blind date with Jackman to a potty-mouthed Watts and her real-life love Schreiber playing parents home-schooling their son by totally demeaning him. The movie’s set for release in theaters Jan. 25, 2013.

'Cloud Atlas' featurette: 'Everything Is Connected' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Interwoven sci-fi epic Cloud Atlas, which opened in theaters last Friday, twists and turns over a 500 year period and six story lines, stretching from 1849 to 1936, 1973, 2012, 2144 and tribally futuristic 2346. The film also stars a massive cast, including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Sturgess, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant and Susan Sarandon in multiple roles. Check out this exclusive featurette, Cloud Atlas: Everything Is Connected, below, in which Hanks, Sturgess, Grant, Berry, and other actors talk about how the film’s various characters are all bound together. Letters, for instance, turn up in different eras, yet touch on people in previous lifetimes. The movie revolves around the idea of one soul traveling through time. “In Cloud Atlas, all of our roles are connected somehow,” says Hanks. “Everyone plays a specific, and yet connected, beats.”

'Cloud Atlas' score co-composed by director Tom Tykwer -- EXCLUSIVE TRACK

Cloud Atlas co-director Tom Tykwer is not only a talented writer and filmmaker, but he also knows how to weave his own music into his films. The orchestral original soundtrack for the upcoming sci-fi fantasy epic, composed by Tykwer and his longtime scoring partners, will be out digitally Oct. 23 and on CD Nov. 6 in a 23-track set, EW can exclusively confirm.

The movie, based on David Mitchell’s novel, spans 500 years and stars a long litany of A-listers such as Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugh Grant in multiple roles snaking through six different eras ranging from 1849 to 1973 to 2346. The movie comes out in theaters Oct. 26.

Tykwer, who wrote and directed Cloud Atlas with The Matrix filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski, composed the film’s equally dramatic score with Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil. The trio have worked together for years as Pale 3, composing, arranging and playing music for Tykwer’s films Run Lola Run, The Princess and the Warrior and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, among others.

Check out this exclusive Cloud Atlas track, below, titled “All Boundaries Are Conventions,” which starts off with a slow piano melody that spreads upwards into an emotional flurry of violins and a deep-voiced choir. READ FULL STORY

'Movie 43' trailer: Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, and Emma Stone get their NSFW on

There are few things more gratifying than watching A-list celebrities break type and act really, offensively stupid. Brace yourselves, then, for Movie 43, a star-studded raunchy comedy that took 12 directors and four years to make. The new red-band trailer is an orgy of R-rated shenanigans, though it’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on, as the clip is basically a hodgepodge of seemingly unrelated vignettes, Robot Chicken-style. But honestly, who cares about plot or coherence when you’ve got Oscar-nominee Naomi Watts telling her son, “You dropped your books, f–kface”?

In fact the pedigree of talent in Movie 43 is remarkable. Of course there are plenty of comedy staples: Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Johnny Knoxville, Seann William Scott, Emma Stone. But the remainder of the cast reads like an awards-season epic: Hugh Jackman, Terrence Howard, Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Liev Schreiber, Uma Thurman, Halle Berry.

So if you’ve been waiting your whole life to hear Terrence Howard say, “The Lord did his part already. He made you black! He gave you a foot-and-a-half–” I’m sorry, I’m sorry. You’ll have to watch the extremely inappropriate trailer yourself.

'Movie 43' co-director Peter Farrelly praises comedic Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts -- EXCLUSIVE

Peter Farrelly has never turned up his nose at total silliness, directing such raunchy comedies such as There’s Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber with his brother Bobby. But collaborating as one of a dozen directors on the upcoming ensemble comedy Movie 43 had its own unique perks, not the least of which was getting to see a slew of A-list stars such as Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet let loose.

The movie, set to release Jan. 25, 2013, has a cast and story as celebrity-steeped and plot-twisty as a Robert Altman film crossed with the shameless spunkiness of Jackass. In addition to Watts and Winslet, it includes appearances by: Elizabeth Banks, Halle Berry, Kate Bosworth, Gerard Butler, Kieran Culkin, Josh Duhamel, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Richard Gere, Terrence Howard, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Knoxville, Chloe Moretz, Justin Long, Leslie Bibb, Liev Schreiber, Seann William Scott, Emma Stone, Jason Sudeikis, and Uma Thurman. Whoosh, that’s a mouthful. With all those actors, more than 15 writers, and several directors, including Farrelly and actress Banks herself, the movie took several years to make.

“It’s the brainchild of Charlie Wessler, who produced most of our movies. Never before have such huge actors pushed the envelope so much,” said Farrelly by phone. “Charlie knows all these people. He went to them, huge stars, like Kate Winslet, and she said, ‘I’m shooting this movie, I’m not free for a year and a half.’ This movie was made over four years, and they just had to wait for a year or two years for different actors. They would shoot for a week, and shut down for several months. Same thing with the directors. It was the type of movie you could come back to.”

It was the kind of moment that felt, in the scheme of a festival, epic.

Beyond Oscar buzz: From sci-fi to docs, more Toronto films we can't wait to see

With roughly 400 films screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, which runs Thursday through Sept. 16, choosing which movies to keep an eye on can feel like wading into a large pool of marbles, with each one a slightly different color, shade, and texture. Documentaries? Check. Mega sci-fi tent pole pictures? Definitely. Animated family fare? Indeed. Foreign films from Japan to Argentina? Yep.

Beyond Oscar-buzz movies such as Ben Affleck’s political thriller Argo, Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor’s tsunami saga The Impossible, the John Hawkes and Helen Hunt polio survivor-meets-sex surrogate dramedy The Sessions, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s cult leader drama The Master, Emma Watson’s coming-of-age high school tale The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Marion Cotillard’s emotional whale trainer-in-wheelchair French-language drama Rust and Bone, there’s a spate of movies to watch out for.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt goes head-to-head with Bruce Willis in the opening night premiere of Looper, Kristen Stewart stars in beat flick On the Road, and Brian De Palma, six years after directing his last film, introduces his sex-oozing thriller Passion, with a blonde Rachel McAdams swapping smooches with Noomi Rapace.
