AS VEGAS — There seemed no end to the parade of star power on display at the Paramount Pictures event at the movie industry’s annual ShoWest convention here.

Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Denzel Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Nicolas Cage, Bette Midler, Samuel L. Jackson, Meryl Streep: one after another they marched out from behind a curtain at the Paris Hotel on March 24, like some menagerie of old-time Hollywood glamour. Read More

$300 Madonna tickets, Britney’s ‘Hotel’ rip-off, Janet with nothing to say

Every once in a while, I find myself asking, “What planet are these people living on?”

That has happened a lot recently, from the announcement that Madonna will charge $300-plus for the good seats to Britney’s wretched display on Showtime this past weekend to Janet Jackson’s stilted, useless interview with David Letterman on Monday night. Read More

Stepford Wives Looking Bright For Ms. M

Paramount Previews Movie Line-up

By Mike Szymanski

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) — On Tuesday, Paramount Pictures offered the press first glimpses of their upcoming movies for the rest of the year.

“The Stepford Wives” looks campily funny, “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” looks darkly noirish and “Suspect Zero” looks horrifyingly scary. And Jude Law, well, he looks like a contract player for Paramount.

Law stars in “Sky Captain” as well as “What’s it All About, Alfie?” and is the voice of narrator “Lemony Snicket” in the film “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” which stars Jim Carrey. Read More

The upcoming Stepford Wives remake has already been robotically deconstructed by the press, but I’m still as wound up as a mechanical housewife in my burning urge to see it, praying it’ll be mesmerizingly offbeat, not just downright bizarre. The cast alone is a Who’s Who of wait a minute, but in a potentially appealing, Oscar-winner-meet-country-star-on-the-way-to-Hollywood Squares sort of way. Read More

A retired Hollywood photographer will show his work during a meeting of the Carson City Historical Society on Saturday.

Charles Adams, who lives off of Kings Canyon Road, worked as a set director and a still photographer in Southern California for many years. Members of the society asked him to speak after seeing his collection of antiques and photos.

“My house is not an old, historic Carson City house,” he said. “But what I have here is a lot of art objects that are old, and I’ve got memorabilia from Hollywood of people I’ve photographed.” Read More
