On March 13, 2013, Kristen Bell and Rob Thomas asked Veronica Mars fans if they’d like to see the gone-too-soon TV series hit the big screen. Just one day shy of a year later, that film became a reality at Wednesday night’s Hollywood premiere of Veronica Mars at the TCL Chinese Theatre.
While the path from cult TV show to Kickstarter-backed film might have seemed far-fetched, Bell never had any doubt that the movie, in theaters Friday, would be made. “I felt in my bones that there would be some incarnation of her,” Bell said on the red carpet of her teenage private eye. “I certainly didn’t know that it would be like this, [that it] would go as smoothly as it has, that was certainly a surprise. But I’ve learned: Don’t ever underestimate a Veronica Mars fan. It’s not in your best interest.”
One of the things Marshmallows (the über-generous and gooey-sweet fans of Veronica Mars) have always loved about the franchise is the blurred line between where Kristen ends and Veronica begins. “This is the most effortless character I’ve ever played,” Bell said. “I’m 100 percent present when I play Veronica, and sometimes [in other roles] I’m 5 percent actor, understandably. But Veronica is very similar to who I am. I’m not as outwardly snarky, but I’m often thinking it.”
But Veronica is just one of the series’ beloved characters, so we asked the cast (and creator Rob Thomas) to name their favorite character outside of their own. (Spoiler: Dick is a cast favorite.) READ FULL STORY
On the scene with Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Louis C.K., and David O. Russell at the 'American Hustle' premiere
Damn, it must feel good to be a hustler. Coming off a New York Film Critics Circle best picture win and whispers of Oscars buzzing in the air, the stars of American Hustle celebrated the film’s world premiere Sunday night at New York’s Ziegfeld Theater.
Inspired by the 1978 Abscam scandal in which the FBI set up a sting operation to capture corrupt political officials, the dramedy started off as a kernel of an idea in the mind of screenwriter and executive producer Eric Warren Singer 15 years ago. But for him, the movie all started with one character — irresistibly charming con man Irving Rosenfeld, played by Christian Bale. READ FULL STORY
Disneyland has proven that it knows how to put on a party full of spectacle with its premieres for the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. On Saturday night its neighbor theme park, Disney California Adventure, hosted its first movie premiere when The Lone Ranger debuted in the Anaheim park’s Hyperion Theater.
The House of Mouse pulled out all the stops for the big event, which featured a 1,500-foot-long red carpet stretching from the entrance of the park to the theater. Costumed characters like Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto were also present, as was the horse who plays Silver in the film. Ahead of the celebrity arrivals, jugglers on stilts entertained the crowd, and park employees passed out black masks like the Lone Ranger’s to fans and press.
The Lone Ranger brings to the big screen beloved characters from the 1949-1957 Lone Ranger TV series, which in turn was adapted from a 1933 radio show. Armie Hammer plays the title character, and Johnny Depp took on the role of his Native American companion Tonto. Pirates of the Caribbean masterminds Gore Verbinski and Jerry Bruckheimer helmed the project as director and producer, respectively.

Thousands of screaming fans brought Times Square to a standstill as they waited to catch a glimpse of Brad Pitt at the premiere of his new thriller, World War Z.
The 49-year old actor took his time to talk to reporters on the appropriately-designed “Z-shaped” red carpet, often breaking away to sign autographs and pose for photographs with fans.
“We’re not doing this small… we’re going big this summer,” Pitt said of the premiere that resembled a music festival.
Pitt stars in and produced the apocalyptic thriller based on the book by Max Brooks. He’s the son of the legendary Mel Brooks. READ FULL STORY
'The Host': Cast and director Andrew Niccol say they're game for a sequel, chat about working with Stephenie Meyer
Sci-fi alien invasion flick The Host, based on the novel by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, is still over a week away from its release date, but the talent behind the film are already saying they’d be up for making a sequel.
The Host, which centers on feisty Melanie Stryder, one of the few free humans left on Earth until she’s captured and inhabited by an alien parasite, had its world premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday. At the event, writer-director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca) told EW that he’d be interested in making the big screen adaptation of Meyer’s in-the-works sequel to the 2008 novel. In fact, he seemed rather eager to get going on film No. 2: “Show me the book, Stephenie,” he joked. “You shouldn’t be here. You should be home writing.”
Luckily for dozens of fans who scored a spot along the premiere’s blue carpet, Meyer wasn’t at home writing. EW asked the best-seller author for an update on her follow-up to The Host, which she has said may end up becoming a trilogy. READ FULL STORY
Paramount Pictures announced late Friday that tomorrow’s planned world premiere of the Tom Cruise thriller Jack Reacher has been postponed “due to the terrible tragedy in Newtown Connecticut, and out of honor and respect for the families of the victims whose lives were senselessly taken.”
Based on the pulp thrillers by author Lee Child, the PG-13 film opens with a random shooting in a public place as seen through a sniper’s rifle. READ FULL STORY
On the scene at 'Breaking Dawn' tent city: Fans camp out for the premiere of the final 'Twilight' movie
Cindy Childers got to make a cross-country trip to the premiere of the final Twilight movie on the condition that she check in with her family back home in Orlando, Fla., each day – but this isn’t a young teenage fan. In a bit of role-reversal, Childers, 47, promised to call her adult children every day she’s in Los Angeles camping out in anticipation of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’s world premiere.
“My daughter’s 24 and calls me everyday. ‘Are you OK?’ ‘Yes, I’m fine!’” Childers told EW, as she stood next to her tent covered in posters bearing the face of Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson.

Twihards, the moment has finally arrived.
After four previous films, one vampire baby, and hundreds of press interviews full of are they/aren’t they tension for the stars, the final Twilight red carpet is here – and EW is bringing you a front row seat, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.
Come back to this page tonight starting at 7:30 p.m. ET for a live stream of all the Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 proceedings. What will Kristen Stewart be wearing? Will Taylor Lautner do a character homage and be shirtless? (Doubtful.) Will Mackenzie Foy and Taylor Lautner pose for pictures together (and what about Pattinson and Stewart)? Anyone’s guess!
Hopefully the stars might spill some secrets about the film, which officially opens on Friday. Stewart has already talked up a “twist ending,” and Pattinson has shared the secrets of his loud kissing that are apparently on display in the movie. What more vampire revelations are still to come?

At the star-studded premiere of Dark Knight Rises last night (check out a compilation of live-stream footage here) the stars were ready to talk about the final film in Christopher Nolan’s epic trilogy — but they were tight-lipped as far as plot specifics. (No big details are given away, but for those that want to remain totally spoiler free, here is your SPOILER ALERT!)
Gary Oldman, who plays police commissioner Gordon in the films, told EW when asked about the ending, “It packs an emotional punch, this one,” Oldman said. “And it’s got hope. [Dark Knight wasn’t so hopeful.] But we still had another one to make. [This one] has got a nice, uplifting theme to it.”
Christian Bale agreed with Oldman’s assessment of the tone. He told EW, “There’s a lot of complexities to it.” But as to whether or not Dark Knight Rises would feel different from Dark Knight, Bale didn’t want to distinguish. “I kind of feel like [the trilogy] is one movie anyway,” he said.
