Tom Cruise's 'One Shot' gets a new name

The studio has swapped the title of "One Shot," an adaptation based on Lee Child's popular book series about a tough-living former U.S. Army cop, to the name of Cruise’s lead character, Jack Reacher, reports THR.

It's the first film adaptation of the literary sequence surrounding the battle-scarred drifter who uses his extensive military training for good.

Jay-Z and Kanye release video for 'No Church in the Wild'

Jay-Z and Kanye West are heard but not seen in their new music video for their "Watch the Throne" track, "No Church in the Wild."

The Romain Gavras-directed video for the album standout is set in the streets of Prague and filled with scenes of Molotov cocktails and tense standoffs between police and protesters.

But for every masked fellow we see in the clip, none of them are Jay, Kanye or collaborator Frank Ocean, which left Entertainment Weekly wishing a famous face would appear to "spice things up a bit."

Watch: Teaser trailer for 'Les Miserables'

The new teaser trailer for Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables" may be brief, but it's powerful nonetheless.

The minute-and-a-half long clip makes great use of Anne Hathaway as Fantine, as her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" serves as the soundtrack for the teaser.

Tom Hooper's take on the classic tale set in 19th century France wields a star-studded cast, including Hugh Jackman as paroled prisoner Jean Valjean; Amanda Seyfried as Cosette; Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert; and theater star Samantha Barks as Eponine.

'Twilight' author hasn't read 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Believe it or not, Stephenie Meyer, the woman behind the vampire romance series “Twilight,” says she hasn’t read the popular book trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey," which has its roots in "Twilight" fan fiction.

But that connection still didn't tempt her to pick up the books, as Meyer says she's just not into racy reads.

"I haven't read it. I mean, that's really not my genre, not my thing," she told MTV about British author E.L. James’ runaway success, which was recently optioned into a movie. "I've heard about it; I haven't really gotten into it that much. Good on her - she's doing well. That's great!"
