What it's about: Three environmentalists plot to blow up an Oregon dam to make a statement. However, things don't exactly go as planned for farmer Josh (Jesse Eisenberg), rich girl Dena (Dakota Fanning), and former marine Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard). As they struggle to pick up the pieces after their attack, things get messier and crazier than they could have imagined.

How is it? For a thriller, most of the action happens inside the characters' minds. With a slow-moving plot and a lack of backstory for the characters, the story is more about the aftermath than the actual eco-terrorism act. The team dynamic is interesting, but it isn't until the tail end of the film that the audience is truly hooked. Eisenberg doesn't play his typical awkward outcast, though he acts as the most logical of the three. Sarsgaard takes the lead as an unpredictable hothead who tends to make careless, irresponsible missteps, leaving Fanning's character to pick up the pieces. With that said, Fanning comes into her own as a sassy and persuasive woman who can hold her own, though as she begins to get in over her head, she plays the naïveté and vulnerability to a tee. In spite of some solid performances from this star-studded cast, it's ultimately too much talk and too little action.

When you can see it: In theaters on May 30, 2014.

Kristen Stewart Gets Into Slacker Mode
Kristen Stewart Gets Into Slacker Mode

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg got into some serious grunge duds when they headed to work for their new film, American Ultra, in New Orleans on Tuesday. Jesse wore a long wig and orange converse while redheaded Kristen sported a '90s-appropriate ensemble, which included a long polka-dot skirt, hiking boots, and a plaid fleece jacket. Jesse plays a "stoner slacker" whose small-town life with his girlfriend, played by Kristen, is turned upside down when he's thrust into a covert government operation. The project also stars Sharon Stone, Bill Pullman, and Topher Grace.

Kristen was back to work after celebrating her 24th birthday last week in NOLA with a group of friends, including Jesse. She spent the day chilling at a park with a group of friends (and some playful pups) and later headed to a dinner. She has been on the move over the past few months as she divided her time between LA and NYC while she filmed Still Alice and Anesthesia in the Big Apple.

Jesse Eisenberg Will Play Lex Luthor in the Superman Sequel
Jesse Eisenberg Playing Lex Luthor

Remember when people were all up in arms when Ben Affleck was cast as Batman? Here's another casting in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel that may be as controversial: Jesse Eisenberg has been cast as Lex Luthor, the iconic nemesis of Superman (Henry Cavill) in the Batman/Superman film. Director Snyder commented on the decision, saying that Lex is "a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth, and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions." Additionally, Jeremy Irons has been cast as Alfred, Batman's right-hand man.

The Celebration Continues For These Newlyweds — and Expectant Parents!
Justin and Lia popped up for brunch after their wedding.

Justin Bartha and his new bride, Lia Smith, met up with friends, including Jesse Eisenberg and Ken Jeong, for brunch in Hawaii on Sunday. The casual affair came after the couple's wedding at the Turtle Bay resort on Saturday. Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth traveled to the destination wedding on the island of Oahu to hear the Hangover star and Lia say, "I do." Reese was joined by her husband, Jim, who is Justin's agent. The group gathered outside for the ceremony, sitting under the warm Hawaiian sun as they awaited Justin and Lia's first kiss as husband and wife. Lia graced the aisle in a white dress with thin straps, minimal makeup, and an effortless updo, while Justin donned a black suit and white pocket square. Justin and Lia have more than just their new relationship status to celebrate — they are reportedly expecting their first child!

Hawaii holds a special meaning for the bride and groom: they were first photographed together on a beach in Maui during a New Year's vacation in January 2013. Lia and Justin reportedly took the trip after they met at an Equinox gym in LA, where she taught Pilates. Lia said yes to Justin's proposal that May. Keep reading to see their romantic wedding pictures!

The Double Trailer: Are Two Jesse Eisenbergs Really Better Than One?
The Double Trailer With Jesse Eisenberg

How much do you love trailers with ominous imagery, strange blues music sung a cappella by an old man, and more than one Jesse Eisenberg? A lot, you say? Then you're going to love this trailer for The Double, directed by The Watch's Richard Ayoade. Eisenberg stars in the adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's short story as a man who goes insane when his doppelganger appears. Mia Wasikowska and Wallace Shawn (aka Mr. Hall from Clueless) costar, though the trailer only gives us little peeks at their parts in the film.


The Double debuts this week at the Toronto International Film Festival, and I'll be curious to hear initial responses, since this trailer doesn't give much of anything away. Director Ayoade is also known for his very well-received 2010 film Submarine, so don't let the vague trailer for The Double turn you off; this could turn out to be a must see. Stay tuned for a US release date, and watch the trailer after the jump.
