It would be an exciting week for casting even if the Cannes Film Festival weren't going on, but the glamorous event in France is bringing a ton of new casting deals as well. The lead for YA tearjerker The Fault in Our Stars cast its Augustus Waters, and Zac Efron just got a new speed-demon role. Click through to see these and the new jobs for everyone from Shia LaBeouf and Christoph Waltz to Cate Blanchett and Scarlett Johansson.
I hope you haven't grown weary of seeing young adult novels on the big screen, because we've got another one for you. Ender's Game is set in a future where humans are being dominated by an alien race and start training young teens to command their star fleets (it's kind of like kiddie Star Trek). The most promising student is Ender (Asa Butterfield), who enters Battle School and starts learning under the tutelage of a gruff colonel (Harrison Ford).
First of all, I can't believe how much Butterfield has aged since Hugo — his voice is much deeper, and he looks ready to kick some ass in this preview. In addition to that, this film looks pretty awesome. Not only are the visual effects exciting, but I'm also interested in the moral dilemma brought up in the trailer about training kids to be military leaders. Plus, the cast boasts many Oscar nominees (which this trailer is happy to remind you of). The film hits theaters Nov. 1, but you can watch the trailer when you read more
Hailee Steinfeld hit the Met Gala red carpet wearing a one-of-a-kind dress by Donna Karan Atelier. Look closely and you'll see that the bone-hued tea-length dress is actually made out of leather, and adorned with oxidized antique gold safety pins and studs. To further her punk flair, the Romeo and Juliet actress completed her look with Eddie Borgo jewels, a shimmery gold Jimmy Choo clutch, and matching sparkly shoes. Green eye shadow and a tough 'do finish off her look — are you feeling it?

We have the third annual CinemaCon to thank for bringing together some of our favorite stars in one place: Las Vegas. Sandra Bullock, Elizabeth Banks, and Hailee Steinfeld are just three of the style-setters who made up this year's list of attendees — and we're looking to their dressed-up looks for serious cocktail-party inspiration. Without further ado, step inside to see who wore what at this year's CinemaCon.
Romeo and Juliet Trailer: Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth Are Star-Crossed Lovers (Ed Westwick Bonus!)
Because every generation apparently gets its shot at Shakespeare's ultimate love story, a brand-new Romeo and Juliet is headed to theaters, with Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld as the titular young lovers. If you don't know the story — first of all, where on earth did you go to school? — Romeo and Juliet fall deeply in love, but alas, their families, the squabbling Montagues and Capulets (which include Damian Lewis and Ed Westwick), are in the midst of a generations-long fight. Though they enlist the help of an understanding priest (Paul Giamatti), the lovebirds end up with a tragic fate.
Don't hate me for saying this about the most classic love story of all time, but this looks like a snooze-fest. We've seen this story before, and except for the addition of Westwick, this looks like the same-old same-old. Am I wrong? The movie doesn't yet have a US release date, but you can watch the trailer after the jump.
Coach held its third annual Evening of Cocktails and Shopping to benefit the Children's Defense Fund in Santa Monica, CA, last evening, and the event drew out some enviable style from a few of our favorite celebs. Katy Perry stole the night in Thakoon, Hailee Steinfeld showed us her take on black and white, and January Jones and Chloë Sevigny served up Spring florals. It's all in today's Fashion Flash! On Allison McNamara: Club Monaco top, Nashelle necklace, Bebe shorts.
January Jones, Katy Perry, and Sophia Bush made up only a fraction of the star-studded crowd at Coach's third annual Evening of Cocktails and Shopping last night. And, in effect, the brightly colored separates, boldly printed pants, downright flirty floral dresses, and covet-worthy accessories to hit the red carpet — make that a grass-covered one — provided a surplus of Spring styling inspiration. Whether you're more of a blazer-for-all-seasons girl (look to Nikki Reed) or partial to a colorblocked cocktail dress moment (hello, Sophia Bush), this benefit bash certainly had enough ensembles to keep even the most finicky of style setters happy. Click on for the complete who-wore-what rundown, including looks we want to steal from Kate Mara, Hailee Steinfeld, Milla Jovovich, and Chloë Sevigny.
