The men of “Entourage” will publicly reunite for the first time since the series ended when they present Mark Wahlberg, the HBO show’s muse and one of its executive producers, with the Generation Award at this year’s MTV Movie Awards.

Mariska Hargitay producing documentary on rape kit backlog
Mariska Hargitay plays a sex crimes detective on Law and Order: Svu, but now the actress is taking her support for victims to another level by producing an upcoming documentary about rape kit backlog.
The documentary, Shelved, will focus on the many rape kits Detroit has failed to analyze and what can be done to stop the backlog from continuing. Rape kits are procedurally given to rape victims immediately after the reported crime and, when analyzed, often lead to identifying the DNA of the alleged attacker and then to the ultimate conviction of that individual. But according to The Detroit News, »

Kate Beckinsale's Genie Pants: Gotta Have It or Make It Stop?
Sometimes a celebrity triggers the memory of a trend that's been relegated to the "out" pile. Case in point: Kate Beckinsale in these tight-ankle pants. Remember when those were in?! Yes, harem bottoms recently had a resurgence in sweatpants form, but the Eliza Graves actress is wearing them I Dream of Jeannie-tries-out-pumps-for-the-first-time style. Although her baggy tank makes her look a bit like Jennifer Lopez circa her "Bennifer" days... We're going to say that we'd be bigger fans of the fashion choice if it weren't for the footwear pairing. The combo feels too party on top and formal on the bottom - like some kind of sideways mullet. Plus, we're not exactly loving the way the »

Selena Gomez's Family Thought Justin Bieber Was the "Worst Thing to Ever Happen" to Her—Has That Changed?
Considering Selena Gomez ended up in treatment in part to help her get over the lingering trauma caused by her breakup with Justin Bieber, the fact that her family still isn't a big fan of her ex doesn't come as much of a surprise. Bieber was one of the reasons her family encouraged her to seek help in January and insiders have told E! News in the past that Gomez's family thought that Bieber was a "punk" and "the worst thing to ever happen to Selena." So what's the word now that Gomez, a month removed from rehab, is spending time with—not to mention kissing—her ex again? "There's no talking to her," a source tells us. "She's just going to »
What’s the Bloody ‘300’ Sequel’s Beef With Anti-War Movies?
Yes, “300” and its sequel originated as graphic novels, and yes, their highly stylized aesthetic resembles the look of certain videogames. Critics love to make such connections — as dismissively as possible, in most cases — but they aren’t terribly helpful when it comes to analyzing the film.
What intrigues me about “300: Rise of an Empire” (let’s call it “300.2” for short) aren’t such over-obvious comparisons but the more revealing contrasts, starting with just how different it is from other recent military movies. In the four decades since the U.S. withdrew from Vietnam, the war movie has been almost entirely replaced by the anti-war movie, except in cases where Orcs or alien invasion are involved. Hollywood, which had served as a patriotic extension of the American propaganda machine during earlier conflicts, changed its tune in the ’70s, responding with such openly critical films as “The Deer Hunter,” “Apocalypse Now” and “Platoon, »

SXSW Film Review: ‘A Night in Old Mexico’
Twenty-five years after they memorably teamed for the epic “Lonesome Dove” miniseries, Robert Duvall and screenwriter Bill Wittliff have reunited for a much smaller-scale project: “A Night in Old Mexico,” a Tex-Mex-flavored shaggy-dog story that finds Duvall perfectly cast as a robustly cantankerous South Texas rancher determined to have one last fling south of the border. The film’s winning mix of broad humor, gruff sentiment and seriocomic caper-scenario elements should play best with an older demographic, although respectful reviews and favorable word of mouth could expand its appeal. North American theatrical and VOD rollout is set for May 13.
Making the absolute most of a vividly written role that fits him like a well-worn pair of boots, Duvall moseys through the proceedings at a deliberate but determined gait as Red Bovie, an aged cattle rancher who’s seriously peeved because the bank has seized his property, and plans to divide it into “ranchettes. »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Fort Tilden’
“Fort Tilden,” Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers’ day-in-the-life chronicle of two vapid twentysomethings on an ill-fated odyssey through “deep Brooklyn,” contains several scenes that manage to skewer the infantile predilections of the Williamsburg jet set with truly ruthless, subtle precision. Unfortunately, it fails to find much humor in them, and its potent sense of place and underlying ideas never compensate for the tiresome millennial musings that constitute most of its runtime. Future festival play seems likely, though the film may well alienate more audiences than it seduces.
Although it has already drawn numerous pre-screening comparisons to a certain HBO program featuring wry Brooklyn hipsters of the same age and gender, “Fort Tilden” takes a far dimmer view of its subjects, and clearly derives its plot structure from Martin Scorsese’s “After Hours,” as 25-year-old roommates Allie (Clare McNulty) and Harper (Bridey Elliott) are perpetually waylaid while trying to make it to a date across town. »

Author Joe McGinniss Dead at 71
New York (AP) – Joe McGinniss, the adventurous and news-making author and reporter who skewered the marketing of Richard Nixon in The Selling of the President 1968 and tracked his personal journey from sympathizer to scourge of convicted killer Jeffrey MacDonald in the blockbuster Fatal Vision, died Monday at age 71. McGinniss, who announced last year that he had been diagnosed with inoperable prostate cancer, died from complications related to his disease. His attorney and longtime friend Dennis Holahan said he died at a hospital in Worcester, Mass. Few journalists of McGinniss' time so intrepidly pursued a story, burned so many

Mariska Hargitay Reunites With Former Law & Order: Svu Costar Christopher Meloni: Benson and Stabler Together Again!
Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson, together again! Mariska Hargitay ran into her former Law & Order: Svu costar Christopher Meloni at an event last week and, happily, she shared evidence of their reunion on Instagram for fans who are still holding out hope that her onetime TV-partner of 12 seasons will return to the NBC procedural for a visit. (That continues to be unlikely, we're sorry to report.) But at least there are these pics.
