Connor Cruise Set To Star in Red Dawn Remake

connor-cruise Tom Cruise's adopted son Connor has landed a role in the remake of the 1984 film Red Dawn. The 14 year-old will play Daryl, the youngest in the group of high schoolers who defend their town against foreign invasion. Josh Hutcherson, Edwin Hodge, Adrianne Palicki and former stars of the Australian series Home and Away Chris Hemsworth and Isabel Lucas will also star in the war drama. Dawn is scheduled to begin filming next month and set to be released in 2010. Blindie sees big things on the horizon for the little Cruise man. Afterall, the original film helped put Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen on the Hollywood map and his father is sort of a box-office heavyweight. And in case you missed it, Connor played a young Will Smith in last year's Seven Pounds.

VIDEO: Chris Rock Takes You Back To Your Roots in Good Hair

Chris Rock takes a candid look at the world and business of black hair in his documentary Good Hair. With celebrities like Kerry Washington, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Megan Good, Raven Symoné, Maya Angelou, and Reverend Al Sharpton offering their views on 'good hair' via relaxers and weaves, the film looks like it's bringing the LOLs! Blindie especially likes the discussion on weave sex by Nia Long, and you can never fail with Mr. Mooney's deadpan delivery (while rocking an super-sized afro wig): "If your hair is relaxed, white people are relaxed...if your hair is nappy, they're not happy!" Good Hair hits theaters in October

Watch Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland Trailer

Tim Burton's adaptation of Lewis Carroll's classic novel Alice in Wonderland is fantastical, creepy and downright nightmarish ...and we love it! Newcomer Mia Wasikowska stars as as the young Alice returning to her adventures after a decade alongside Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the evil Red Queen, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Little Britain's Matt Lucas as both Tweedledum and Tweedledee. The film is due to be released in March 2010 and will be shown in 3D.

Ga Ga: Yara Shahidi Stars with Eddie Murphy in Imagine That & Angelina Jolie in Salt

yarashahidi-adorable There's a new scene-stealer in town: kid actor Yara Shahidi, who isn't only taking over where little Dakota Fanning left off, but is a bankable star in the latest Eddie Murphy flick, Imagine That. The cute kid from Minneapolis beat out 3,000 girls for the role of Olivia, an imaginative kid with real life stock tips, which her dad (Eddie Murphy) finds useful! But Eddie isn't the only A-Lister Yara's sharing screen time with: she's starring (with her little brother Sayeed) in Unthinkable as Samuel L. Jackson's tots and with Angelina Jolie in the thriller Salt. Of Jolie, whom she recently shot a scene with, Yara said, “[She] was really nice, not intimidating. It was like saying hello to a friend.” eddiemurphy-imaginethat-yarashahidi.jpg

Rivers Wash Over Me Premieres At New Fest Debuting Promising New Talents Derrick L. Midldeton and Cameron Mitchell Mason

rivers-wash-over-me Photo: (L to R) Derrick L. Middleton, Aidan Schultz-Meyer The independent film Rivers Wash Over Me directed by John G. Young premiered at New Fest in New York on Saturday and featured some promising young talents. Set in the south, Rivers chronicles the turmoil a gay teenager encounters when he goes to live with relatives following the death of his mother. Derrick L. Middleton in the lead role as Sequan Greene and Cameron Mitchell Mason who plays Sequan's abusive and homophobic cousin shine as break-out stars in complex and vulnerable roles. The film's few light-hearted moments delivered by Darien Sills-Evans who seemed to invoke Sidney Poitier from In The Heat of The Night in his portrayal of the town sherriff trying to solve a murder in a southern town, and Elizabeth Dennis who played the gratuitious wayward white girl with a penchant for black men and drugs, helped to even out an otherwise grim tale of small town prejudice. If Middleton and Mason can carry off such complex roles for their film debuts, look forward to their follow-up performances. As for Sills-Evans, whom we first caught sight of in Bill Cosby's less-popular and lower-income family sitcom series Cosby in the late 1990s - it's time for a lead role in a comedy feature! And since he co-wrote and produced the film, we're confident he can make that happen.

Ga Ga: Maya Rudolph Gets Her Starring Chance with John Krasinski in Dave Eggers Flick Away We Go

awaywego-maya-rudolph-johnkrasinski Former Saturday Night Live star Maya Rudolph is finally getting her first starring role in a major movie in the dramedy Away We Go (opening Friday). Starring opposite The Office hottie John Krasinski, Rudolph (who is expecting her second kid with director Paul Thomas Anderson) plays Verona, a mom-to-be traveling across country to find the perfect place to raise her baby. "I heard that it was written with me in mind, but I didn't know Dave and Vendela, so I couldn't ask them," she says of the film written by authors Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida and directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (he's married to Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet). "It was pretty thrilling to see that these two incredible writers wrote this beautiful thing with you in mind," she added.

Ga Ga: The Official Trailer for Precious (aka Push) Creates Oscar Buzz

The trailer for Precious which made waves at Sundance is creating Oscar buzz for Mo'Nique in her first dramatic role. The film, which is an adaptation of Sapphire's beloved novel Push, changed its title to avoid conflict with the Dakota Fanning sci-fi flick. The drama is about a teen girl (played by Gabourey Sidibe) wrestling with pregnancy, poverty, and an abusive mother (Mo'Nique). We can't wait for the flick (which also stars Mariah Carey and Paula Patton) to hit theaters!
