'Pompeii' Stars Kit Harrington And Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Hit
Last Monday, I attended the screening and red carpet interviews of 'Pompeii' stars Kit Harington ('Game of Thrones') and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ('Thor 2', 'Oz') at Philadelphia's Franklin Institute. 'Pompeii,' directed by Paul W. S. Anderson ('Resident Evil'), stars Carrie-Anne Moss ('Matrix'), Kiefer Sutherland ('24') and Emily Browning ('Lemony Sknickett'). The primary plot surrounds two Gladiators who duel it out for freedom, love and friendship while toiling beneath the shadows of a tremulous Mt. Vesuvius.

I feel Adewale's return to the area is kismet. I was supposed to interview him...

Shailene Woodley Premieres New Film 'White Bird in a Blizzard' A
The new Shailene Woodley movie, White Bird in a Blizzard, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Having taken time off after her Oscar-nominated role in The Descendants, Woodley was picky. Last year’s Sundance hit The Spectacular Now and this Gregg Aracki directed film were her first post-Descendants roles.

“I’ve just been a fan of Gregg’s work, everything that he’s done,” Woodley said, turning to Aracki at the premiere. “I feel like it’s a rite of passage to be in one of your films in a way. You don’t make very many films so when the opportunity came about, it was a really special exper...

Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks
Saving Mr. Banks tells the story of the making of Mary Poppins. Tom Hanks plays Walt Disney himself and Emma Thompson plays Poppins author P.L. Travers, who fought Disney on making the film a musical and including animation. The film portrays Travers as an abrasive British curmudgeon (Travers was Australian and moved to London), and Thompson embraced her impolite side.

Tom Hanks Talks Playing Walt Disney In 'Saving Mr. Banks'

Tom Hanks Rita Wilson - 'Saving Mr. Banks' Los Angeles Premiere
There are arguably no current stars as famous as Tom Hanks. The two-time Academy Award winner has starred in films that are part of everyone’s collection for decades. Perhaps then it was appropriate that our era’s biggest star played Walt Disney, one of the century’s most famous figures. Or, maybe it made it more challenging for Hanks to disappear into the character of Walt Disney in his new movie, Saving Mr. Banks.
