Katie Holmes spent her first days at Sundance supporting her film The Extra Man with a special screening, but last night she switched gears to focus on her other movie debuting at the festival. She was in a tan shirt and black scarf to celebrate The Romantics along with many of her costars like Elijah Wood, Malin Akerman, and Adam Brody. Josh Duhamel was able to take a break from his travels on behalf of When in Rome — make sure to check out Buzz's exclusive interview with Josh and Kristen Bell and enter CelebStyle's giveaway to win your own trip to the Italian capital! Fergie was also there to support her husband's new project, and she found a minute to mingle with Katie during their evening out.

I'm sadly back in San Francisco after a lovely stint in Park City, but I've still got plenty of goodies from my Sundance experience to share with you guys. I've been profiling each of the movies I've screened with my Sundance Snapshots, and today I'm keeping the ball rolling with Blue Valentine.
- Who's behind it? Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams play the leading couple under director Derek Cianfrance.
- What's it about? Gosling and Williams play Dean and Cindy, a married couple who are starting to realize that their fairy tale romance isn't exactly shaping up to the life they imagined. The film shifts back and forth between their current relationship and their initial courtship, giving the audience a side by side look at how different they've become over just a few years.

Ben Affleck hopped on a private jet and headed straight from the Haiti telethon to Sundance on Friday night, where he braved a blizzard and arrived late to his premiere but still graciously stuck around the red carpet to talk to the press. He chatted about working in Boston and, at Saturday's press junket, talked about how his relationship with Jennifer Garner makes it easier for him to play a married man.
The first big weekend of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival may have ended, but the celebrities are still flocking to Park City to promote their movies. Katie Holmes rolled in last night for the premiere of her film The Extra Man, as Ryan Gosling wrapped his panel discussion for Blue Valentine. Naomi Watts arrived at the premiere of Mother and Child solo, but Diego Luna had his wife to keep him company on the red carpet for his film Abel. We have tons of updates from the scene and click through for a look the latest from Utah!
I've had a little crush on
Ted Mosby Josh Radnor ever since I got hooked on How I Met Your Mother, and I've had high hopes for the side project he's been working on between seasons. Radnor makes his debut as a triple threat writer/director/actor in HappyThankYouMorePlease — but don't let the quirky title turn you away. I'm happy to report the film is among my favorites from Sundance 2010, so let's get into the good stuff.
- Who's behind it? I already mentioned that Radnor wrote and directed the script, and he has plenty of talent supporting his cast, including Malin Akerman, Tony Hale, and Kate Mara.
- What's it about? The movie centers around Sam Wexler (Radnor), a writer in his late 20s living in New York and struggling to find meaning in his love life and career. On a particularly fateful day, Sam befriends and takes in a young boy who's been separated from his foster family and meets a potential love interest in Mississippi (Mara). Akerman plays Sam's best friend and confidant Annie, who's got her own issues to deal with (particularly with a co-worker (Hale) who won't give up until he gets a date with her). Finally, Zoe Kazan plays Mary Catherine, a lifelong friend of Sam's who is struggling to figure out whether or not she and her boyfriend have a future together in New York.
