This weekend's box office were predictable, but still disappointing.
This weekend at the box office – things went exactly as predicted, in that Avengers maintained its top spot, making bank with another $77.2 million, making it the film with the second highest sophomore weekend gross of all time. It surpassed the second weekend of Fox’s Avatar ($75.6 million) but fell behind predecessor Marvel’s The Avengers ($103.1 million).
Despite receiving favourable reviews, Hot Pursuit didn't do too well at the box office.
Directed by Joss Whedon, Age of Ultron follows superheroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) as they battle the new villain of the franchise, technological ultra baddie Ultron (James Spader). Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson also star in the film as twins Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, aka (this isn’t a spoiler, they were in the trailer) Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
The actress is set to star in 'Hot Pursuit' with Reese Witherspoon.
Everyone's favourite comedy babe Sofia Vergara gets honoured with a very well deserved star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame; and judging by the photo uploads on her Instagram account, it looks like she threw one hell of a party to celebrate.

And there are new glimpses of the acclaimed comedy-drama Tangerine and the docs What Happened Miss Simone and The Look of Silence...
Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara led the charge as their new action comedy 'Hot Pursuit' premiered in Los Angeles this week. It's about an uptight policewoman trying to protect the colourful widow of a drug kingpin as they are chased by corrupt cops and mob killers. It opens this weekend in America and in July in the UK.
The exes each appeared on morning television in the US on Thursday to talk about their embryo dispute.
Sofia Vergara and her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb appeared on separate talk shows Thursday morning, to each give their side of the story in the very public legal batter over their frozen embryos. Vergara appeared on Good Morning America to discuss the issue as well as her new movie Hot Pursuit, while over on NBC, the actress' ex, Nick Loeb was interviewed by Hoda Kotb on the 'Today' programme.

Vergara told GMA she didn't think it was fair that she had to discuss the legal battle with Loeb at a time when she should be focusing on her latest work, Hot Pursuit which co-stars Reese Witherspoon.
Reese Witherspoon's daughter, Ava Phillippe, is her double!
Reese Witherspoon's daughter looks just like her mum! Witherspoon posted a photograph with her 15-year-old daughter Ava on Instagram on Thursday (30th April) and their similarity is certainly striking. Witherspoon and Eva were getting ready for the Los Angeles premiere of Witherspoon's latest film, Hot Pursuit, when the photo was taken. Ava is Witherspoon's daughter with her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe. Although Ava looked remarkably like her mother, she certainly has a look of Phillippe about her - especially around the nose!

The star was speaking to Pridesource.com with her 'Hot Pursuit' co-star Sofia Vergara.
Reese Witherspoon has criticised actors who refuse to portray homosexual characters on screen. The 39 year old star believes that actors who won’t take on gay roles need to “lighten up” and accept that part of their job is to “transform”.
In a joint interview with Sofia Vergara, her co-star on the upcoming movie Hot Pursuit, Witherspoon told Pridesource.com: “I think gay people are able to play straight roles; straight people are able to play gay roles. The whole point of being an actor is to transform. If people don't understand that we need to be malleable in our sexuality, then I think they need to lighten up.”

The ‘Modern Family’ actress has refuted her ex’s claims in a statement.
Sofia Vergara has responded to claims made by her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb that she wanted the couple’s frozen embryos destroyed. The 'Modern Family' star’s response comes just days after it was reported Loeb had filled a lawsuit claiming she was trying to destroy the embryos.
Sofia Vergara is currently engaged to Joe Manganiello.
In a statement made to E! News Vergara’s attorney Fred Silberberg said, "Vergara has never wanted to destroy her embryos. Vergara has never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed. She has always maintained that they be kept frozen, a fact of which Loeb and his counsel have always been aware, despite Loeb's statements to the contrary.”
Sofia Vergara, in a recent interview, revealed how she got together with her fiancé, Joe Manganiello, and how she was unwilling to compromise, when first working in American television, when it came to her accent.
Sofia Vergara is on the cover of Vanity Fair's May edition and, in the interview, she revealed how she met her fiancé, Joe Manganiello. The Modern Family actress explained how she thought Manganiello was "too handsome" for her and she even doubted, given their different filming schedules, anything would happen between the two.
Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara announced their engagement in January of this year.

Jason Statham may be playing essentially the same character he always plays, but this noir-style thriller has a somewhat groovier tone thanks to the Las Vegas setting and a scruffy William Goldman script. It's also directed with wit and energy by Simon West, who keeps everything moving very briskly. Although not fast enough for us to miss the fact that it's all rather thin and pointless.
As always, Statham is a former black-ops agent whose jaded, frazzled exterior obscures his fighting-fit action moves. His name this time is Nick Wild, and he works as a bodyguard for wealthy clients like Cyrus (Michael Angarano), who needs protection as he visits Vegas casinos with vast sums of money. He also has a lot to learn from Nick about gambling and wants to learn some of those action moves too. Meanwhile, Nick's ex-girlfriend Holly (Dominik Garcia-Lorido) asks him to help her get revenge against the swaggering gangster Donny (Milo Vengimiglia), who kidnapped and viciously terrorised her. Nick knows that getting even with Donny will put him on a collision course with mob kingpin Baby (Stanley Tucci), but he can't resist a challenge.
Nick is one of those characters who can't resist much. He's addicted to high-stakes blackjack, life-threatening confrontations and his own seedy poverty. So clearly the goal of the screenplay is to find some sort of uneasy redemption. Statham has played this role before in his sleep, so he looks almost bored here, which makes him vaguely intriguing. His gimmick this time is an ability to turn everyday objects into lethal weapons, including a seriously nasty moment with a pair of hedge clippers. It also helps that the film is packed with colourful scene-stealers who add plenty of badly needed spark, including a ripped Ventimiglia and the reliably wonderful Tucci, plus lively cameos from the likes of Sofia Vergara and Anne Heche.
