May 21st, 2011 7:01am EDT
I Am Number 4
A teenage fugitive with an incredible secret races to stay one step ahead of the mysterious forces seeking to track and destroy him in the sci-fi action thriller "I Am Number 4" from director D.J. Caruso ("Disturbia," "Eagle Eye").

With three dead and one on the run, the race to find the elusive Number Four begins. Outwardly normal teen John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) never gets too comfortable in the same identity, and along with his guardian, Henri (Timothy Olyphant), he is constantly moving from town to town -- the perpetual new kid in a series of strangely familiar schools.

Despite the fa...

Another 'Rear Window' Lawsuit For 'Disturbia'

November 1st, 2010 1:31pm EDT
The makers of Shia LaBeouf's thriller Disturbia are facing a second lawsuit over claims the movie is based on the classic story Rear Window.

A judge recently dismissed a suit which alleged movie bosses stole part of the film's plot from Cornell Woolrich's short story, which was turned into an Oscar-nominated film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1954. And now, just weeks after the copyright infringement suit was wrapped up, the executors of The Sheldon Abend Revocable Trust have filed a new lawsuit in a bid to revive the legal battle.

The trust filed the breach-of-contract claim in Los Angeles Su...

'Disturbia' Copyright Lawsuit Dismissed

September 22nd, 2010 1:30pm EDT
A judge in the U.S. has dismissed a copyright infringement lawsuit which claimed Shia LaBeouf's 2007 movie Disturbia was based on the famous story of Rear Window.

Lawyers representing the trust of late writer Cornell Woolrich filed legal papers claiming DreamWorks movie bosses stole part of the film's plot from her short story, which was turned into an Oscar-nominated film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1954.

Both stories follow a man who spies on a neighbor from his window and becomes convinced they have committed murder. Legal reps alleged studio heads didn't ask permission to turn the short...

Shia LaBeouf: A Former Disney Star Who Is Bucking The Trend

June 23rd, 2009 10:12am EDT
Shia LaBeouf
Shia LaBeouf is an interesting young Hollywood star because unlike a variety of former Disney stars, he's managed to slide his way into the adult acting world with very few bad moves.

Born to an interesting family in California, his mother a ballerina/designer and his father a former mime, his name means "Gift from God" in Hebrew and is often mispronounced by fans and critics alike (it's SHY-uh). Shia started acting as a child, starting in "Caroline in the City," but he became famous for playing Louis Stevens in the Disney show "Even Stevens."

This success came rather quickly for Shi...

Our Favorite Canadian Actors

Pamela Anderson
Given that the United States and Canada closely share days of pride in their country on the calendar, it seemed only logical to single out the many wonderful people that our neighbors to the north have proudly shared for all to enjoy. Following are some of the many comedic, talented, and gorgeous celebrity men and women that call Canada "home."


Dan Aykroyd

Born in Ottawa, Ontario on July 1 (Canada Day!), Aykroyd's face has been seen on many a movie screen. He started his comedy with Second City Stage Troupe in Toronto and moved on to pursue an acting caree...

Today's Child Stars Struggle To Become Serious Entertainers

July 2nd, 2008 9:01am EDT
Cole and Dylan Sprouse
We saw it with Drew Barrymore and then again years later with Lindsay Lohan and most recently with Mary-Kate Olsen. Current "It" stars like the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus will undoubtedly follow suit in the next few years.

They are child stars that want to turn into more serious entertainers as they get older, hoping the fans that are also growing up will follow them into more adult ventures. They take on roles they perceive as "serious" or "artsy," they change their look to try to separate themselves from their younger image, and they often take behind-the-scenes hybrid titles...

After 19 Years, 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' Phenomenally Exhumes Venerated Roots

May 22nd, 2008 11:16am EDT
Indiana Jones
(HollywoodChicago.com) – After such a long respite from the beloved film progression, I was initially just as skittish about seeing Harrison Ford back in the Indy saddle as I was watching Sylvester Stallone back in the ring in “Rocky Balboa” in his 2006 comeback and then again in 2008 in his “Rambo” return.

Ultimately, though, I had faith in director Steven Spielberg not to royally torpedo the monolithically anticipated “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” which resurrects the Chicago-born, 65-year-old Harrison Ford as one of my favorite film characters of all time.


'Superbad' Leads The Way At MTV Movie Awards

May 6th, 2008 12:52pm EDT
Teen comedy Superbad is leading the nominations for the 2008 MTV Movie Awards after picking up five nods, including Best Movie.

The high-school comedy, directed by Greg Mottola, also scooped nominations for the film's stars Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, who will compete in the Breakthrough Performance category along with their co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Hill is also up for Best Comedic Performance.

However, Superbad will be going up against Oscar-winning Juno - which Cera also stars in - for the Best Movie prize, while the actor is also recognized for his efforts in the te...

'21': An Entertaining Thriller

March 28th, 2008 11:19am EDT
So, I couldn't help but wait for Jim Sturgess, the dashing leading actor in 21, to break out into a full-fledged Beatles cover of "I've Just Seen a Face," one of the several numbers he killed as the Paul McCartney equivalent in last year's tour de ummmmm, Across the Universe. He settles down into a generally believable American accent, or totally believable if you don't know he's British, and cascades through the emotions of any young protagonist put to screen. 'Yeah,' I keep thinking, 'But where's The Beatles, man?' Seriously though, with all jokes aside, 21 turns out to be if nothing else...

Breakout Stars Of 2007 Have A Bright Future

January 28th, 2008 1:10pm EST
Seth Rogen
In a year haunted by the impending writers' strike and its eventual actuality, teeming reality television and faltering awards shows, 2007 still managed to bring a few stars to the forefront. Some are familiar faces that finally broke through, while some are previous nobodies that are sure to become Hollywood royalty.

So now, here are a few of Starpulse's favorite breakout stars of 2007:

Ellen Page

The star of the wildly successful "Juno," 20-year-old Ellen Page proves that beauty as well as brains and wit still have a place in Hollywood. Hailing from Halifax, Canada, Page was p...

Point/Counterpoint: Should Hollywood Stop Remaking Classic Films?

January 18th, 2008 1:45pm EST
Rob Zombie
Over the years many classic movies have been remade. Don't get me wrong, some of those remakes have been really good. But the majority of the movies have been really bad.

These days, special effects are being taken to a whole new level, but that's not always a good thing. One of the main reasons these films are classics is because CGI was in the distant future. People loved the original "Godzilla" because you can see the man in the Godzilla costume crushing a cardboard box, also known as Tokyo.

There are few movies that have scared me, and one of those films was the 1978 movie "Ha...

With so many celebrity hunks to choose from it was hard to pick only ten for our "Top 10 Celebrity Bachelors" list; however, we've managed to narrow it down to a few that will make your mouth water.

On demand in Hollywood we have rising star Shia LaBeouf, 21. Ever since his appearance in movies such as "Transformers" and "Disturbia," LaBeouf has been on casting directors' hot list. He's on our hot list as well, as in, pour-some-water-on-me I need to cool down hot. Gone are his days of dressing like a hip-hop wannabe. Today we are looking at a grown man, and that's represented in his n...

Shia LaBeouf Rules Out Partying With Hollywood Jetset

July 2nd, 2007 6:24pm EDT
Shia LaBeouf
Shia LaBeouf insists he'll never be photographed leaving a Hollywood nightclub high or inebriated, because growing up with a drug addict father taught him the downside of substance abuse. The Disturbia star, who first smoked marijuana with his father aged 10, is determined to let nothing get in the way of his burgeoning movie career.

He says, "If I'm gonna party, I'll do it at my house. And to say that I've never had a drink or smoked weed - coming from my family, is insane. But also, I know what it does if you get out of control. I know how hard it was to get my life to where it is. ...

Shia Labeouf: 'I Don't Want To Become Like Lohan'

June 6th, 2007 3:51pm EDT
Shia Labeouf
Actor Shia Labeouf is determined to keep himself out of the public eye and not follow in the footsteps of stars like Lindsay Lohan, because he wants his career to be taken seriously. The Disturbia star is instead modeling his Hollywood future on actors such as Nicolas Cage and Sean Penn.

He says, "I want a career like those guys, not like a Lindsay Lohan. She's a talented actress but has made some scary decisions. If I'm perceived as someone like that I'm going to be screwed giving a Michael Caine performance. Being seen just as a celebrity can be as bad as having your movie tank."

Disturbia star Shia LaBeouf is fighting fit for the upcoming Indiana Jones IV movie but regrets the fact his film career has ended his surfing obsession. The young actor, who will play Harrison Ford's sidekick in the new adventure movie, reveals director Steven Spielberg told him to get fit for the new film - but insisted he stayed away from the ocean.

LaBeouf says, "Steven said midway through the working out thing, 'I don't want you to get big. Just be ready for what we're about to do and show me some of the skills so I know you're ready.' So I've never been in better shape in my lif...

Thrillers 'Disturbia' & 'Fracture' Top Poor Week At The Box Office

April 23rd, 2007 9:30am EDT
Disturbia has kept Anthony Hopkins off the top of the U.S. box office chart in a terrible week at the cinema. Disturbia made just $13.5 million in its second weekend to score a second week at number one, while Hopkins' new thriller Fracture debuted at number two with just $11.2 million.

Actor Shia LaBeouf's amazing 2007 has started in style after his new film, Disturbia, debuted at the top of the box office.

The child star's thriller is a low-budget version of Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window.

Blades of Glory slipped to number two on the new box office chart and takes its three-week tally past $90 million. Halle Berry and Bruce Willis' new thriller Pe...

David Morse Creeped Out Shia LeBeouf On 'Disturbia' Set

April 14th, 2007 10:15am EDT
David Morse
Actor David Morse was so convincing as a brooding killer in new thriller Disturbia, his young co-star Shia LeBeouf was terrified of him. The 20-year-old star admits working with method actor Morse was not a fun experience because the star really did hate the youngster.

LaBeouf reveals, "He wouldn't talk to me for two months. He didn't start talking to me until we started doing the fight scenes in the film and then he would say, 'This is gonna be real bad, maybe you should duck.' He didn't like me at all. We didn't get along at all, plus he's seven feet tall."

LaBeouf remembers h...

John Turturro Advised Shia LeBeouf To Skip College

John Turturro
Disturbia star Shia LeBeouf turned down the chance to study at Yale University on the advice of acting hero John Turturro. The 20-year-old former child actor's on-set tutorials paid off when he was accepted to the Ivy League university - but never went.

He recalls, "I remember asking John Turturro (if I should go) and he said, 'You have all the opportunities now. You can go to college when you are 30 or 40. Wait until the pause comes.'"
