From a book of bite-size and hilarious essays to a much-anticipated sequel about a certain devil who wears Prada, here are the books to pack along.
The Wolfpack returns for one last crazy adventure in The Hangover Part III, but do Bradley Cooper and the boys still have that comedy magic?

At 14, Jaden Smith has already made two feature films with his father, Will Smith, and recently I sat down with the young actor to discuss their latest, After Earth. Jaden dished on his favorite part about working with his dad — "he's like a big, black Yoda" — and the actress he'd love to work with. Take a look before the movie hits theaters on May 31!
The beaches in the South of France are known for their rather liberal bathing suit requirements, so it was the perfect place to premiere Steven Soderbergh's Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra — which, according to star Matt Damon, reveals a "jarring" shot of his own behind. Hear all the details on how Matt and costar Michael Douglas committed to playing lovers and what critics are saying about this daring film, which might be Steven's last.
Far East Movement caused a full-on dance party in our Los Angeles studio when they stopped by to perform their latest single. We also got to ask them what they learned when they were working with Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.
Will and Jaden Smith team up in the futuristic sci-fi film After Earth, and we recently got the chance to talk shop with Smith Sr. The self-proclaimed "gregarious" star told me about the challenges of playing a seriously injured character for nearly an entire movie, being an onscreen father (again!) to his real-life son, and why he almost had to learn Chinese for the role. Take a look before the film comes out on May 31!
Wyatt Russell, son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, has joined the family business! After five years in professional hockey, Wyatt's taken up acting full time and appears in We Are What We Are. Wyatt chatted with us at the Cannes Film Festival this week about falling into acting and talking shop with his parents and sister Kate Hudson and confirmed that the ladies in their family do, indeed, as Kate put it, "throw down!"

Ahna O'Reilly has not one, but two projects at the Cannes Film Festival this year, and we sat down with the actress to talk about this extraordinary experience, the reception to her two movies, and what it was like to work with her ex-boyfriend James Franco as a director. First up for Ahna was Fruitvale Station, which was coming off huge Sundance success before subsequently being picked up by The Weinstein Company. Ahna spoked about reuniting with good friend Octavia Spencer for their surreal Cannes Palais moment. Ahna also revealed how much she doubted that James Franco actually wanted her to star in his adaptation of As I Lay Dying and discussed who, between the two of them, was more nervous for their big premiere. Check our chat, and keep your eye out for lots more from Ahna O'Reilly.
