Jamie Foxx usually looks pretty slick, but in the first pictures of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, he's sporting a straight-up nerdy style. Last week we got a look at Foxx as Electro, but this is the first time we've seen him as alter ego Max Dillon, which was tweeted by the movie's director Marc Webb. Dane DeHaan also tweeted the first image of himself as Harry Osborn — and his icy stare. I'm excited to see more pictures of the other Spider-Man characters we know and love, but these first shots will hold us over a little until next year's release date. Check them out now.
Channing Tatum donned an all-white suit to hit the dance floor with costars Jamie Foxx and Maggie Gyllenhaal at a party to celebrate their film, White House Down, in Cancun, Mexico, last night. Channing, who was sporting scruffy new facial hair, showed off his dance moves alongside Jamie, and also paired off for a dance with Maggie, who wore a white Apiece Apart dress. Jamie, who plays President James Sawyer in the action flick, posed with Channing in front of a mock presidential portrait for the promotional fun ahead of the film's June 28 release.
Channing has a lot going on at the moment. He has been spending the bulk of his time in London with his pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan, while on location to shoot Jupiter Ascending. Although he has been keeping up a busy schedule, the expectant pair snuck in a recent double date with another A-list couple. Channing and Jenna paired up with his Jupiter Ascending costar Mila Kunis and her boyfriend, Ashton Kutcher, for a date night at the London Opera last weekend.
Judging by the recent release Olympus Has Fallen and this new trailer for White House Down, I don't know why you'd ever want to visit the president's home. At least in White House Down, you have Channing Tatum, who is geared up to make you feel all safe and protected. Tatum plays John Cale, a police officer who's taking a tour of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with his daughter when the building suddenly gets attacked. Coincidentally, he's also up for a job as a Secret Service agent, and it looks like he gets a prime opportunity to prove his skill in protecting the president (Jamie Foxx).
You don't get to see much in the trailer aside from explosions, and Tatum only really speaks to instruct the president to "go, go, go!" but it looks like your standard Summer action flick . . . and a lot like Olympus Has Fallen. And yet director Roland Emmerich is a guy who knows how to attack the White House (see: Independence Day), and Tatum is here doing his best John McClane impression and looking great as usual, so there's that. White House Down comes out June 28, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
The Weinstein Company teamed up with Chopard for their pre-Academy Award party at Soho House last night. Stars from the company's films Silver Linings Playbook and Django Unchained made the rounds on the night before the Academy Awards. Jennifer Lawrence wore a jumpsuit following her afternoon wearing Lanvin at the Independent Spirit Awards, where she picked up a trophy for best female lead, and the movie itself was crowned best picture. Her costar Bradley Cooper, as well as their director David O. Russell, also made the rounds at Soho House. Django's Kerry Washington, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Don Johnson also celebrated before the Oscars, along with Salma Hayek and The Vampire Diaries actors Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley.
Kerry Washington donned an Oscar de la Renta gown to hit the red carpet at last night's NAACP Image Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in LA. It was a big night for Kerry, who took home three honors including best supporting actress for Django Unchained and best actress in a drama series for her work in Scandal, which was also honored with best drama series. Kerry was joined by her Scandal costar Tony Goldwyn, as well as her Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino and costar Jamie Foxx for the festivities. Halle Berry was also in attendance as a presenter along with Quvenzhané Wallis and Samuel L. Jackson.
This was just Kerry's latest award-season appearance. She stepped out for the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards last month as well. Kerry looked glamorous in a Rodarte gown to take the stage as a presenter at the SAGs last weekend.
It's a time-honored tradition to look for a kiss as the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve. We've made a list of eight Hollywood hotties, and we're wondering who you'd want to ring in the New Year with. Some do have lady friends, but for the sake of fun, we're curious if you'd pick charming Ryan Gosling, the abdominally gifted Joe Manganiello, or former sexiest man alive Bradley Cooper. Or would you prefer Robert Pattinson, Usher, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, or Jamie Foxx? Tell us — when the clock strikes midnight on New Years Eve, who would you like to kiss?
Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained doesn't hit theaters until Dec. 25, but we've got all the pictures to keep you sated until then. Jamie Foxx stars as Django, a former slave set on freeing his wife from the clutches of the cruel Calvin Candie, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Check out all the stills of the film, including new shots of Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Quentin Tarantino was joined by the stars of his newest film, Django Unchained, for a press conference at the Ritz-Carlton in NYC yesterday morning. We were on the scene to hear the cast talk about the movie, which opens Dec. 25, and discuss what it was like playing slaves and slave-owners.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington, and several other actors were on hand to discuss the powerful film, which manages to turn a horrifying tale of slavery into a Spaghetti Western-esque masterpiece. They've all been busy promoting the new movie, which premiered in NYC with some help from Leo's friend Cameron Diaz last week.
Read on to see our five favorite moments from the press conference, including a surprise appearance by Jonah Hill.
Leonardo DiCaprio headed down to Cancun over the weekend for Sony's annual Spring junket, with this year's version dubbed "Summer of Sony 4 Spring Edition." The company takes advantage of a chance to show off their upcoming crop of films, which includes Leo's Django Unchained from director Quentin Tarantino. Quentin and Leo were side by side for yesterday's photocall, as were DiCaprio's costars Kerry Washington, Jamie Foxx, and Christoph Waltz. Django is a reunion for Christoph and Quentin, who worked together on 2009's Inglourious Basterds. Leo and the gang have been shooting the movie back in America. Production on the picture meant that Leo missed out on promoting his other big-screen project, the rerelease of Titanic in 3D.
Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Beyoncé Knowles, and Countless More Bid Farewell to Oprah With Music, Comedy, and Tears
A whole range of celebrity guests turned out for the Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular in Chicago yesterday. It was a huge event, at the city's United Center, organized to tape the second- and third-to-last episodes of Oprah's long-running TV show that will air on May 23 and 24. The guest list ranged from performers like Alicia Keys and Beyoncé Knowles, singing her new single "Run the World (Girls)."Tom Hanks played host for the first of two hours of taping, and he introduced the show by saying, "Now Oprah, I know you don't like surprises. Let me see if I can put you at ease. There was an English playwright who said there's no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved, and that is what tonight is all about." The second 60-minute segment was emceed by Will Smith, on a break from shooting Men in Black 3, and Jada Pinkett Smith. Oprah's 12-time guest Tom Cruise stepped onto the stage to the theme-tune from Mission Impossible, saying, "You always had the power [to change lives], and that is the lesson you brought."
Even Maria Shriver turned out despite the scandal brewing over her estranged husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the revelation he fathered a child outside their marriage 10 years ago. Maria made a heartfelt speech to Oprah, thanking her for the gifts of truth and wisdom. There were also 13,000 fans in the audience to see the proceedings — one guy apparently even proposed to his girlfriend before the festivities began! There were plenty of surprises in store, including a comedy set from Jerry Seinfeld. He had the crowd cracking up with quips like, "To be here at the United Center and not be at a Bulls Game!? This is like a dream a disoriented husband would tell a shrink: I was at a Bulls game packed with fans and somehow it all changed to the Oprah show." The shocks kept coming with tributes from Dakota Fanning, Halle Berry, Josh Groban, Rosie O'Donnell, Jamie Foxx, Usher, and a cameo from Oprah's long-term boyfriend Stedman Graham! Stedman spoke sweetly of his lady love, commenting, " I love you for making a difference in my life." All of the affection eventually got to Oprah, who broke down in tears. She wrapped things up by saying, "Thank you for taking me to a place that is beyond joyous — It feels like the rapture."
