One of the first live-action flicks Julia Roberts filmed after 2004’s “Ocean’s Twelve” is finally being released.
“Fireflies in the Garden,” which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in 2008, was released in theaters and on DVD in virtually every country except the United States.
For awhile, many people wondered if the film would ever be released domestically. Then, last weekend, the first trailer was posted online and news of a release date surfaced.
The film follows a bearded Ryan Reynolds as a romance novelist who’s forced to come to terms with his dysfunctional family and abusive father in the wake of his mother’s death.
Roberts (who plays Reynold’s mother in flashbacks), Willem Dafoe, Emily Watson and former “Heroes” star Hayden Panettiere also appear in the film.
Do you think the film will be worth the wait?
“Fireflies” is set to be released in theaters on October 14 in New York and Los Angeles, followed by a wide release at a later date.
The Change Up and Rise of the Planet of the Apes both hit theaters this weekend so there is about to be one sexy box office battle underway!
The Change Up puts a spin on the classic switching bodies tale and is filled with crude hard humor and of course, some sexy Ryan Reynolds. Ry guy isn’t the only A-lister in this film. Jason Bateman plays Dave a dad who goes from crying babies, to sexy ladies after switching bodies with Ryans single and loving life character Mitch, after a night of drinking and envy of one another’s lifestyles. Olivia Wilde, and the comical Leslie Mann also appear in this upcoming flick.
This switch of fates should definitely do well Ryan Reynolds isn’t the only one getting some action in the new movie, the action packed drama Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is also hitting theatres this weekend, and with a dynamite cast, this movie is sure to be up for the challenge.
James Franco stars opposite the beautiful Freida Pinto, in the new sci-fi based action, where a science experiment goes dreadfully wrong. Tom Felton is also at it again with his evil ways in the new movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Let’s hope he brings some of his luck from the sales of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, which broke records earning over a billion dollars.
All year long, Hollywood watchers have wondered which starlet would snag newly single Ryan Reynolds. Mystery solved!
A source tells the new issue of Us Weekly that the Green Lantern star, 34, and Charlize Theron, 35, “have been dating — for months! They’re exclusive, and it’s very hush-hush.”
While the two haven’t been photographed together, a witness noticed Reynolds’ motorcycle at Theron’s home all morning on June 5, then saw the actor exit her house around 3 p.m. — and she left just minutes later.
Has Reynolds (who split from wife Scarlett Johansson last December) found a perfect match?
“They’re both career-focused,” explains the source, “but not in a crazy way.”
For instance, don’t expect to see the stars side-by-side on a red carpet. “She won’t go to an event with him,” the insider says of Theron, who split with love of nine years Stuart Townsend in 2010. “That’s not her style.”
Meanwhile, Reynolds hasn’t completely shut off contact with famous ex Johansson, 26. He and the Iron Man 2 actress were spotted having a cordial dinner last Friday at Little Dom’s in L.A., an observer confirms to Us.
