Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl) and Justin Chatwin (The Chumscrubber) also are in the movie, which stars Daveigh Chase, reprising her role from the original cult classic. The story, set seven years after the first film, follows Donnie Darko’s sister, Samantha, who, in dealing with her broken family, flees town with her best friend (Evigan) when they are plagued by bizarre visions. Production has begun in Utah. Berkley is playing a speed freak-turned-Jesus freak whose sentiments about ridding the world of its exponential sin are rivaled only by her infatuation with her dreamy pastor.Evigan starred in Step Up 2 the Streets and appears on NBC’s summer series Fear Itself. Berkley, of Showgirls and Saved by the Bell fame, recently wrapped a stint on CSI: Miami and completed filming The Butlers in Love, directed by David Arquette.

Bond Producers Snubbing Winehouse?


The London Star is reporting that producers of the new James Bond movie Quantum of Solace have yet to decide whether to use a song written and performed by Amy Winehouse as the title theme of the movie, due to be released in October. Winehouse has said that she has recorded several possible songs for the 007 movie that she describes as “good ones I’m really happy with.” She added, “I don’t know what is wrong with them or what the problem is.” The newspaper suggested that the problem may be Winehouse herself and her frequent brushes with the law over drug use. On Sunday the Express reported that the producers are likely to turn to Beyonce, who has become the “firm favorite after first-choice Amy fell off the rails.”

Heroes RETURNS!


The eagerly anticipated return of “Heroes” launches with three hours in primetime on Monday, September 22 (8-9 p.m. ET) with an hour-long compilation show that will lead into a spectacular all new, two-hour premiere (9-11 p.m. ET).

Season three will open with a three-hour episode, set to air Monday, September 15, 2008. The first-hour will be a clip show of the past two seasons; the final two-hours will be the Heroes season premiere and the opening of the third volume, “Villains”. “Villains” was originally designed to be included within the second season, however, due to the writers’ strike, the volume was carried over into season three. The lead-in to “Villains” featured a scene with Sylar, which was shown as the final scene of the “Generations” finale. Throughout Volume Two, Sylar’s powers were suppressed by the Shanti virus. After using a cure, procured by Mohinder Suresh, he regained his abilities, delivering the first lines of Volume Three, “Villains”: “I’m back.” Tim Kring has claimed that the new volume will bring a cadre of villains to the show; hence the title.

Movie Reviews | May 23

What Happens in Vegas…


The celebrities and the fans came out for the latest so called ‘hit comedy’ (they only get that credit because they’re still in the top 10!). You won’t find many reviews about this actually being a GOOD comedy, even with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher attaching their names. This seems like it should have been more of a ’straight to video’ movie, as people may actually enjoy the popcorn humor in their own home rather than have to shell out the big bucks at a movie theater for it!

EZ’s photographer was on hand at the Red Carpet, and by the looks of it the red carpet went over better than the movie did! The fans were eager to show their support with their “Team Cameron” and “Team Ashton” t-shirts! Looks like a fun time was had by all at this red carpet ride! Take a look at the red carpet photos (and then wait for DVD to see the film!!)… you can find the pics HERE on the main Entertainment Zone Site!

Screening of The Man In The Silo


by Albert L. Ortega

4-14-08 Fine Arts Theater, Beverly Hills, CA. 7:30 P.M. MONDAY - You know one of the things that I hate about living here in Los Angeles is the major traffic!!!! I thought I left in pleanty of time but I was stuck in bumper to bumper yeesh!!!! Luckily I know this neat little trick where I can park in load zones with my press placard so I was able to park right near the theater. Tonite was a screening for a dramatic short by Phil Donlon ( http://www.phildonlon.com/ ) called “The Man In The Silo” ( http://www.screenmag.tv/feature.aspx?fid=878 ) the red carpet was handled by a good friend at Highlander Films ( http://www.highlanderfilms.net/Welcome/index.php ) John Zander ( http://www.zmpub.com/ ) he also represents two of the films stars Doug Jones ( http://www.thedougjonesexperience.com/ ) and Ernie Hudson ( http://www.ernie-hudson.com/index2.html ) who was unable to attend at the last minute due to a personal matter. The gathering was intimate with a lot of online media present with cast and mainly crew proudly walking the red carpet in addition to Donlon was producer Steve Ordower stars Doug Jones, Sandra Robinson, Brandon Ratcliff, Jodi Shilling, Dian Bachar, Ron Gilbert and writer Christopher E. Ellis. The film was suspenseful only highlighted by the score of Bernard Hermann ( http://www.mfiles.co.uk/composers/Bernard-Herrmann.htm ) and acted out wonderfully by Ernie Hudson. The short was followed by a Q & A and topped off with dinner at the Spanish Kitchen. I would say that Phil Donlon is someone to watch for in the near future…

The Music of “Battlestar Galactica”: An Evening With Composer Bear McCreary


by Albert L. Ortega

4-13-08 The Roxy, West Hollywood, CA.

8:00 P.M. SUNDAY- Wow what a treat composer Bear McCreary ( www.bearmccreary.com/ ) had a sold out show and I was really happy to be experiencing something I thought was special; music to one of my most favorite shows “Battlestar Galactica.” The evening was hosted by James Callis ( http://jamescallis.tripod.com/ ) the deranged baddie Gaius Baltar who even joined the evening’s entertainment and sang a few. The promoters of the event, LaLa Land Records ( http://www.lalalandrecords.com/ ) along with CineMedia( http://www.reuters.com/article/pressRelease/idUS232459+19-Mar-2008+PRN20080319 ) were celebrating their 10 years in the business and what better way to celebrate after the Grand Slam weekend in Burbank. Opening the evening performance was Bear’s brother Brendan McCreary who rocked the house with some rock and blues tunes. Bear then took the stage and performed some well known themes including several with Japanese Taiko Drums thundering along. During the intermission a video was shown that was very amusing that featured both cast and crew all in on the joke as to who was Bear McCreary and the ongoing joke of Bear trying to get into the wrap party, funny stuff I hope they include it on the next DVD. Well what can be said of the evening performance, a true marvel to experience if ever given the chance I highly suggest that you grab yourself a ticket.
