Hailey Baldwin's Evolution From Cute Celebrity Kid to Stunning Model

Hailey Baldwin's Evolution From Cute Celebrity Kid to Stunning Model
Hailey Baldwin has turned quite a few heads in recent years. The 20-year-old and daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin has gone from a cute celebrity kid to a stunning runway model and member of a growing entourage of hot young stars. She wasn't even in kindergarten yet when her dad started taking her to family fun nights at movie premieres. As a child, she has walked the red carpets at screenings for films such as The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, Shrek 3 and The Pink Panther 2. When she was about 13, she accompanied her dad to the 2010 ESPYs. A year later, they attended the premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. She and Justin Bieber became good friends and would...

Film Review: ‘The Time of Their Lives’

Film Review: ‘The Time of Their Lives’
There is nothing like a dame, and at the grand age of 83, Dame Joan Collins is still nothing like one — not by the Queen’s definition of the term, at least. Yet with the British honours system having finally smiled on her, the erstwhile star of disco-era smutfests “The Bitch” and “The Stud” has belatedly decided to emulate Dame Judi, Dame Maggie and the “Best Exotic” club with a respectably genteel geriatric comedy of her own. Enter “The Time of Their Lives,” a likably lame rattletrap of a road movie that gets what limited spark it has from the “Dynasty” diva’s still-lascivious on-screen charisma.

As a pair of lonely pensioners thrown together by chance on an episodic Gallic escapade, the strutting star is agreeably paired up with long-neglected namesake Pauline Collins; Roger Goldby’s narratively lumpy film shamelessly cribs from the latter’s Oscar-nominated breakout “Shirley Valentine” in espousing

10 Most Unwatchable TV to Movie Adaptations

10 Most Unwatchable TV to Movie Adaptations
22 Jump Street is in theaters this weekend, and its one of the few TV-to-Movie franchises that has gotten it right. This comes after so many have gotten it really wrong! Adapting a hit television show to the big screen seems like it would be an easy thing. The source material is great, there's an existing audience, it should be money in the bank. But bigger does not mean better. There's more than enough examples of great TV turned into garbage cinema. So much so, there was a fair amount of difficulty and debate narrowing it down to ten, epically awful movies. Criteria had to be established. There must be a method to this madness. Terrible films like The Smurfs, Scooby Doo, Yogi Bear, or The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas still has an appeal to younger audiences who might actually be entertained by it. It does have some value.

A feature-length The Flintstones animation? Yabba dabba do it!

Hollywood has a bad track-record for cartoon to live-action adaptations, so it makes sense that Bedrock's most beloved characters should remain in their original, animated form

The Flintstones movie (1994) and its 2000 prequel, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, deserve to be trampled to death by herds of rampaging velociraptors, not least for the crime of casting Rick Moranis, then Stephen Baldwin, as poor Barney Rubble. And yet there is hope this week that the classic cartoon might yet carve a more attractive place for itself in the celluloid cliff face, after Warner Bros announced plans for a new big-screen adaptation.

There's no need this time around for producers to recruit the film industry's cuddliest actors to play Fred. Nor will bright young stars such as Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson be offered a chance to play Wilma and Betty, at least not in the flesh. Because the new Flintstones movie

Will Ferrell And Adam McKay To Produce An Animated Flintstones Movie

Yabba dabba doo! According to THR, Warner Bros. is reviving The Flintstones in the form of a new animated feature film to be produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.

When last we heard of the beloved “modern Stone Age family,” Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane was set to produce a new TV series, but the project was tabled after his pilot failed to impress the studio. Now, Warner Bros. is turning to their animation banner, Warner Animation Group (which was behind The Lego Movie) to bring the town of Bedrock to the big screen. Chris Henchy, who is partnered with Ferrell and McKay in Gary Sanchez Productions and co-wrote the script for Will Ferrell’s comedy The Campaign, has been hired to pen the screenplay for The Flintstones.

As someone who grew up watching re-runs of the immensely popular animated sitcom, I’m definitely excited at the prospect of seeing Fred,

'The Flintstones' Return in New Animated Movie from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay

'The Flintstones' Return in New Animated Movie from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay
Warner Bros. is teaming up with Gary Sanchez Productions' Will Ferrell and Adam McKay to bring The Flintstones back to the big screen with a new animated feature.

Chris Henchy has been tapped to write the screenplay. He is Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's partner at Gary Sanchez, and also wrote the script for The Campaign. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay will serve as executive producers for the project, which is still in the early stages of development.

The Flintstones debuted in 1960, producing 176 episodes in its six seasons on the air, setting a record for the longest-running animated series until The Simpsons shattered that mark. The show follows Fred Flintstone, his wife Wilma and their neighbors Barney and Betty Rubble, who live in the quaint town of Bedrock. No story details were given for this new version.

The TV series spawned the 1994 live-action movie The Flintstones, which starred John Goodman,

Madonna returns to the director's chair for 'Adé'
When Madonna unveiled her second directorial effort "W.E." at the Venice Film Festival in 2011, the critics (this one included) were pretty merciless. That glossy mashup of Wallis Simpson biopic and contemporary Harlequin romance was, admittedly, a pretty easy target -- The Weinstein Company's advance hype didn't fool anybody -- but the sheer vapid ineptitude of its storytelling still managed to surprise. Andrea Riseborough received some good notices for work as Simpson, Arianna Phillips' super-glam costumes were Oscar-nominated and Madge's own theme song even scooped a Golden Globe, but after this and her little-seen debut "Filth and Wisdom," no one seemed to be begging the pop queen to return to the director's chair. But hey, Madonna has never in her entire career been cowed by criticism, and she's not about to start now. It was announced earlier today that she is to direct her third feature "Adé" -- an adaptation of

Alan Cumming interview: 'I think I look ridiculous as a drag queen'

In his new film, Alan Cumming plays a colourful cross-dresser looking to adopt a neglected child. The star talks about his own plans for parenthood – and his dreadful dancing

Early in our conversation, Alan Cumming declares that he is not the flamboyant extrovert he appears to be on stage – which is, after all, where he has given his career-defining performances: a decade ago, as Emcee in Sam Mendes's Cabaret; and last year in his one-man Macbeth. Both will be spoken of long after everyone has forgotten his roles in The Smurfs, Garfield or The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.

At 48, there is certainly an enduring softness about Cumming. It's there in his accent (2% New York, but largely Scottish Highlands), his appearance (elfin with greying spiky hair) and his sentiments ("It's too easy to be mean in life"). And he is as understated as anyone can be while sporting a

WWE Gets in the Ring with The Flintstones Movie

  • kidspickflicks
There will be another Flintstones movie, this one sticking with animation. The previous two films, 1994's The Flintstones starring John Goodman and Rosie O'Donnell and it's prequel The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas starring Stephen Baldwin and Jane Krakowski, were live-action. The lead roles of Fred, Wilma and baby Pebbles and their best friends Barney, Betty and baby Bam-Bam Rubble have not been cast yet but side players have. WWE wrestlers will have a part of the action with John Cena playing John Cenastone, Cm Punk will become Cm Punkrock and WWE ringleader Vince McMahon will become Vince McMagma. Why is that? It's because WWE Studios is partnering with Warner Brothers on the movie. Also, the film isn't going to get a theatrical release, instead going straight to VOD and DVD.

Beloved Cartoon Gets Surprise Reboot

Beloved Cartoon Gets Surprise Reboot
The Flintstones are returning to film in a new deal between Warner Bros and WWE Studios, Deadline.com reports.

The upcoming animated feature is set for a 2015 release. According to Deadline, the film will unite Flintstones favorites such as Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble with big WWE names including John Cena.

The Flintstones, which started as an animated television show in the 1960s, was adapted to a live-action film starring John Goodman and Elizabeth Perkins in 1994, and a second-live action film, "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas," starring Mark Addy and Kristen Johnston in 2000.

“WWE is family-friendly entertainment, so partnering with Warner Bros on a Flintstones/WWE project was a natural extension of our Scooby Doo deal,” President of WWE Studios Michael Luisi said, Deadline reports. “This new, animated feature allows us to showcase our brand with young fans and loyal Flintstones enthusiasts alike.”

Danny Woodburn cast as Splinter in Ninja Turtles

Following on from yesterday's story of Alan Ritchson's comments about the Michael Bay produced Ninja Turtles reboot, Deadline is reporting that Danny Woodburn has been cast as the Turtle's sansei, Master Splinter.

Danny Woodburn starred in last year's Mirror Mirror as Grimm. He has had a number of TV roles, but is most famous for his portrayal of Kramer's friend Mickey in the classic NBC comedy Seinfeld. Woodburn is no stranger to movies based upon cartoons either, having previously appeared in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.

Let's hope this adaptation works out better than that one.

Woodburn now rounds up the main cast which includes Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo and Megan Fox as April O'Neill. Will Arnett will also be in the movie, but his role is being kept under wraps. Ninja Turtles will be directed by

Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth Tangle with a Troll in New Preview Clip from Snow White and the Huntsman

If you missed Kristen Stewart's recent appearance on NBC's The Tonight Show, then you didn't get to see her explain away her swagger as the result of an injury sustained filming re-shoots for Breaking Dawn: Part 2, catch her brief cameo appearance in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, or see the new preview clip from Snow White and the Huntsman (Swath) that she shared with Jay. We can't help you out with her "ultimate swag" and we don't even want to bother trying to share with you the split-second scene from The Flintstones in which 10-year-old Stewart tosses rings, but we do have the preview clip from Swath for your viewing pleasure.

The scene in the preview clip appears to take place after the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) decides that he doesn't want to kill Snow White (Stewart) for the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) as the pair are

Bruised Kristen Stewart: Bella Hunting/Breaking Dawn 2

Kristen Stewart tumbled? Life imitates art once again. At the end of Twilight, Bella Swan goes to the prom wearing a cast. In order to dance, she must climb on top of Edward Cullen’s feet, so he can sway to the music for both of them. Well, it turns out that Bella herself, Kristen Stewart, has hurt her foot while working on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 reshoots, or "pickup shots" or "additional shots" or whatever you want to call them. On Friday, Stewart told The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno that the additional work on Breaking Dawn 2, which took place in Vancouver this past week, was mostly focused on the hunting sequences in the beginning of the film. Bella’s hunting scenes to be exact. (Please scroll down to watch the Kristen Stewart / Jay Leno video.) Remember, Bella was transformed into a vampire at the end of
