Adapting beloved animated classics has proven quite lucrative for Disney. Their latest, The Jungle Book, has wreaked havoc at the box office for two straight weekends in a row. Naturally, the studio is forging ahead with plenty more live-action fare.

First up are sequels for two blockbusters. Angelina Jolie will once again channel her villainess for Maleficent 2, while Jon Favreau is set to return to direct The Jungle Book 2. Find out the rest of Disney’s upcoming projects below including a Tinker Bell film starring a popular blonde actress.

Ever wonder what chain of events led to Cruella de Vil’s obsession to turn dalmatians into fur coats? Wonder no more. Disney is developing an origin story centering around the fashionable villain. Much like what the studio did with Sleeping Beauty‘s Maleficent, people will discover how the iconic character came to be.

The 101 Dalmatians spin-off has no director as of yet, but Freaky Friday’s Andrew Gunn is set to produce. Glenn Close brought the animated character to life in the live-action 1996 hit film. Find out below which fiery actress is being eyed to portray Cruella this time around.

Clearly, Woody Allen became smitten with Emma Stone while filming Magic in the Moonlight. The prolific director once again taps the Easy A actress as his leading lady for his latest offering.

Movie Synopsis

On a small town college campus, philosophy professor Abe Lucas (Joaquin Phoenix) finds himself in an existential crisis, but he discovers a new purpose in life when he enters into a relationship with one of his students (Stone).

Rounding out the cast are Jamie Blackley and the amazing Parker Posey. Based on the trailer, the film is everything you’d expect from a Woody Allen film. Plenty of quirkiness, darkness and romance. Irrational Man enrolls into theaters on July 17. Watch the trailer below.

From the man who brought us Say Anything, Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous comes another romantic comedy that is bound to be another classic.

Cameron Crowe chose Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone to helm his latest film, titled Aloha, which previously had working titles Deep Tiki and Volcano Romance. Wise decision to ditch the other two, especially given the tagline. “Sometimes you have to say goodbye… before you can say hello.”

Cooper plays a defense contractor named Brian Gilcrest who falls for Allison Ng (Emma Stone), an Air Force pilot, after he is assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii. Complicating matters is the fact that Brian reconnects with a former flame portrayed by Rachel McAdams. For all you trivia buffs, you might be interested to know that Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon were attached back when the project was being developed in 2008-2009.

Aloha was originally slated for last December but was pushed back to May 29, 2015. I’m thinking Columbia Pictures didn’t want it to conflict with Cooper’s American Sniper which has been dominating the box office since its release.

Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Danny McBride, and Jay Baruchel round out the cast. Check out the first trailer below.

Not everyone has a happy ending,” says Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper). No truer words have been said. The first official trailer highlights all the adversaries Spider-Man faces in the highly-anticipated sequel. It’s all about the villains. Making sure Peter Parker doesn’t get his happily ever after are Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Harry Osborn aka Hobgoblin (Dane DeHaan).

It’s an interesting move to have Spider-Man battle three foes in the film. One of the biggest complaints of the final film in the Sam Raimi trilogy was that Spider-Man had to budget his time battling Sandman, Venom and Franco’s pumpkin bomb throwing bad guy. Who says superheroes can’t multi-task 😉

If you’re wondering if there will be any other villains for Spidey to battle in future installments, pay close attention to the trailer. Doctor Octopus’ mechanical arms and the Vulture’s wings briefly appear. Perhaps it’s a hint. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014. Check out the trailer below.

My favorite issue of any month of any publication is here. Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood Issue is one I look forward to all year long. Typically, they gather a group of talented actors to pose for an epic photo shoot with an iconic photographer. This year, the famed Bruce Weber snapped the cover and the inside editorial which was more monumental than previous years. Reportedly, a whopping 75 different celebrities posed for 100+ photos for this year’s theme of “Adventures in Hollywood.”

Receiving the huge honor of gracing the cover (and not in the flap) are Ben Affleck, Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper. While not one of my favorite covers, I like the fun aspect of Emma in the middle while Ben and Bradley wear a bear suit and gorilla costume respectively. This is the first time for both Affleck and Cooper to make the cover, but second for Stone. The Easy A actress first appeared in 2010’s “It Girls” theme shoot. Back then, Stone was hanging around with Evan Rachel Wood and Anna Kendrick on the third flap of the extended cover.

Speaking of the 2010 issue, that year received numerous complaints for being too whitewashed. I’m sure the 19th annual Hollywood edition will also raise some eyebrows. Two women of color made the cover, but in the second and third flap. Find out who they are below, along with all the previous eighteen VF Hollywood Issue covers.

Earlier this week, the hilarious and talented Emma Stone stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her new movie, Gangster Squad and more. Shortly after bugging her resident DJ, Tony Victor Okungbowa about his secret relationship and then talking about the People’s Choice Award she had won the night prior, Ellen introduced Emma Stone to the stage.

Emma Stone talked about her 1940s accent for her Gangster Squad role, and what it originally sounded like before the director gave her a thumbs down. They also talk about Andrew Garfield, kissing Ryan Gosling, and more. There’s also a funny story about when Ellen DeGeneres went up to Emma Stone and Cameron Crowe‘s table at a restaurant one day (before Emma had ever met her) and what she said.

Watch a couple clips from the interview or watch the entire episode below. I recommend the latter – such a funny episode!

I’m not sure how this list was compiled because it seems a little odd. DoSomething.org recently unveiled their annual Top 20 list of “Celebs Gone Good” and Taylor Swift is apparently the most giving in Hollywood. Not to discredit Swift’s generous donations, but is she really the No. 1 charitable celebrity out there? If she is, then the others really need to step up their do-gooding game.

The 23-year-old “Trouble” singer stands atop of the heap due to her $4 million donation to the Country Hall of Fame Museum which is the largest sum ever donated to the organization. She’s also cited for all tremendous work for young people battling cancer and being the youngest person to ever receive the Ripple of Hope Award from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for her charity work.

Others making the list include Carrie Underwood, Channing Tatum, Ben Affleck and Miley Cyrus. It’s interesting how Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez rank separately, while Andrew Garfield & Emma Stone and Jay-Z & Beyonce are grouped together. There are definitely a couple of surprises including Ian Somerhalder. Not that he doesn’t strike me as a giving person. It’s just you never hear much about his good deeds. Find out who the runner-up is and the rest of the Top 20 below.
