It's been a star-studded few days in Berlin, where Anne Hathaway, James Franco, Rooney Mara, and many more celebs have popped up to premiere their films at the Berlin International Film Festival. Today, Rooney Mara and Jude Law met up in the German capital to present their film, Side Effects. Earlier in the festival, a Chanel-clad Anne linked up with Les Misérables costar Hugh Jackman to promote their hit project. Their costar Amanda Seyfried was pulling double-duty at the festival, where she premiered Les Misérables as well as her upcoming film Lovelace with James Franco and Peter Sarsgaard. Matt Damon dropped by last Friday when he and costar John Krasinski introduced their film, Promised Land. Click through to check out all of the action in Berlin!
Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood debuted their new romantic fairy-tale thriller, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday evening. Shia's currently shaved head is a far cry from the wild hair that he sports in the movie, in which he also frequently shows off a shirtless toned physique. Evan, who recently revealed her pregnancy, plays a Romanian woman in the film, which takes place almost entirely in Bucharest. Shia's sense of humor shines throughout the bloody, action-packed project. Also making a fun appearance in the movie was Rupert Grint, whose drug-addled aspiring porn star is a very funny departure from Harry Potter's best friend Ron Weasley. Shia, Evan, and the rest of the cast will be doing more press today — stay tuned to PopSugar Rush for that, as well as our review of The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.
Shia LaBeouf may be taking a break from the promotional tour now that Wall Street 2 has been pushed back, but the actor is still working hard to beef up his resume. His newest project sounds like a blend of action, romance, and a whole lotta violence: in a film called The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, Charlie (LaBeouf) falls for Gabi, who's already been promised to a mob moss. Charlie risks his life to save his love — but if the title is any indication, LaBeouf's chances of making it through the film alive aren't very good.
I'm all for seeing LaBeouf leave the robots and explosions behind, but watching him get bruised and bloodied up doesn't exactly thrill me (especially since we've seen it before). Still, maybe the description of the film is undermining what might turn out to be a great love story. So let's focus on that, shall we: who should play LaBeouf's lady love this time around?
