The 16 year old certainly takes after her famous mother.
Uma Thurman certainly brought a head turning date to the New York premiere of The Theory Of Everything, her stunning sixteen year old daughter Maya Thurman-Hawke.

Of course a daughter looking like her mother is hardly unusual, but we just couldn't help but be struck by the uncanny resemblance between these two. Seriously, looking at Maya we feel as if we travelled back in time to Uma’s Dangerous Liaisons days.
Stars hit the red carpet for the New York premiere of Get on Up, while Bradley Cooper and Uma Thurman film on the streets of London. And the first trailers arrive for Kevin Smith's Tusk, Mockingjay Part 1, The Hobbit Part 3 and the Mad Max reboot...

He was joined on the red carpet by costars Dan Aykroyd and Tika Sumpter, as well as soul singer Bobby Byrd and rock icon Mick Jagger. The film opens this weekend in the US and next month in America.
Tarantino has lost hope
It seems like when you reach the top of your selected field, it’s only right for you to declare that field dead. Nas did it with hip hop and now Quentin Tarantino has said it about film. "As far as I'm concerned, digital projection and DCPs is the death of cinema as I know it," said the outspoken director ahead of a special screening of his iconic cult classic, ‘Pulp Fiction’.
Quentin Tarantino grooves away on the Cannes 2014 red carpet
“The fact that most films now are not presented in 35 mm means that the war is lost. Digital projections, that's just television in public. And apparently the whole world is OK with television in public, but what I knew as cinema is dead,” asserted Tarantino, who has featured heavily in the news lately surrounding the Hateful Eight leak debacle and subsequent lawsuits.

'12 Years A Slave' actress and Oscar winner, Lupita Nyong'o, is the new face of Lancôme, it was announced today.
Lupita Nyong'o is the face of new Lancôme, the French cosmetic company confirmed on Friday (4th April). Campaigns featuring the 31-year-old actress will be released in September.
Lupita Nyong'o won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years A Slave.
Nyong'o has enjoyed a busy year having starred as Patsey in the award winning historical drama 12 Years A Slave for which she received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her incredible performance. After years working behind the camera as a production assistant, writer, producer and director, Nyong'o has been catapulted into the spotlight owing to her incredible performance and beauty. It's no wonder the cosmetic company has singled her out as the new face of their brand.
The promo campaign for Lars Von Trier's latest film managed to shock and fascinate in equal measure.
If sex sells, then the promo team of Lars Von Trier’s upcoming Nymphomaniac is going for gold. The release of twelve promo posters, each featuring a cast member showing off their best O face, practically broke the internet. Every entertainment outlet today rushed to report on the provocative campaign and some even urged readers to vote on who could pull the best orgasm face. And of course, it’s no secret why the sexually-charged campaign is such a success – it sparks enough controversy to provide tabloid fodder for days.
Are the posters really that scandalous?
Why is it that we’re still so shocked at any mention of the Deed though? Even with increasingly progressive attitudes in most areas of life and the over-sexualization of entertainment and media, everyone still seems infatuated with the posters non the less. Even if the posters don’t actually show anything all that scandalous – actors from the waist up, making some scrunched up faces.

12 different directors contributed to the misshapen mess that was Movie 43, but it’s Peter Farrelly whose decided to speak out against the slew of bad reviews that the comedy has received from critics.
The film should have been a big box office success, boasting in its cast as it did the likes of Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Uma Thurman, Seth Macfarlane and a whole host others in its series of mini-vignettes. However, a critical mauling has left it with an average rating of 4% on reviews aggregating site Rotten Tomatoes, whilst some critics have been moved enough to call it the worst film of all time. As one of the 12 directing, Farrelly – who can boast comedy successes like There’s Something About Mary and Stuck On You in his resume – took the haters to task on Twitter.
"To the critics: Movie 43 is not the end of the world. It's just a $6-million movie where we tried to do something different. Now back off," he fumed, adding "To the critics: You always complain that Hollywood never gives you new stuff, and then when you get it, you flip out," he added in a separate 140-character missive. "Lighten up." Among the many derogatory comments about the film, the most amusing was perhaps Richard Roeper’s of the Chicago Sun Times, the unimpressed critic describing the movie as “the Citizen Kane of awful”.

The 'Django Unchained' New York premiere saw high profile celebs flock to the red carpet in droves. Arrivals included 'Gossip Girl' star Olivia Wilde, Don Johnson's daughter Dakota, 'Kill Bill' star Uma Thurman, Liv Tyler from 'Lord of the Rings', former 'America's Got Talent' judge Sharon Osbourne, 'St Trinian's' actress Lucy Punch, The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood with his fiancée Sally Humphreys and 50 Cent.
Of all the films being released close to Christmas time, perhaps only Django Unchained can rival Les Miserables for the sheer star power assembled amongst the cast. Both high budget films had their American premiere this week, and though Les Mis could boast a mighty triumvirate of Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, they were surely eclipsed by the embarrassment of riches that showed up last night in New York for Quentin Tarantino's new warped Western flick.
Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Uma Thurman were just some of the stars who attended the UNICEF Snowflake Ball, with Gomez in particular looking keen to put reports of her and Justin BIeber breaking up and then perhaps getting back together on the back burner for the evening. Perry looked stunning, as did TV actress Allison Williams, but Gomez stole much of the limelight, putting on a smiley face as she donned sparkly black number and chatted freely with the room at 42nd Street.

Thurman gave birth almost three months ago and has managed to keep her new baby away from too many prying eyes. Plus it's only now that she has released the name(s) of her little bundle of joy. Say hello to “Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson” otherwise known, to “family and friends as Luna,” according to ExtraTv.com.
While many of us spend time scoffing and scorning the ridiculous names celebrities give their unfortunate kids, the general public can be just as idiotic - especially in New Zealand it seems. Back in 2008 the BBC reported that a judge in NZ let a 9-year-old girl become the ward of the church so that she could change her name, which her parents wouldn't allow. Her name was 'Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii'. She was not from Hawaii. New Zealand has a history of having to ban certain names, such as Yeah Detroit; Stallion; Twisty Poi; Keenan Got Lucy; Sex Fruit; Fat Boy; Cinderella Beauty Blossom; Fish and Chips (twins) - understandably! However, a few equally crazy ones managed to slip through the net, including: Violence; Number 16 Bus Shelter; Midnight Chardonnay; Benson and Hedges (twins).

In 1968, Brooks was at the top of his game. He was also at the very beginning of it: The Producers was his first feature film, and you can track the quality of his movies on a steady decline which stretches from the awesome Blazing Saddles (1974) to the middling Spaceballs (1987) to the awful Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995), Brooks' last appearance behind the camera.

"My life is nothing but highlights," confesses Mike Jennings (Affleck), a genius computer hacker who trades big cash for small chunks of his own memory. Jennings gets rich by dissecting massive programs and passing the goods onto rival companies - at which point, all recent activity is erased from his brain.

Something like The Big Chill meets Generation X, Beautiful Girls is one of those ensemble character movies that really defies description in terms of plot points. The ostensible main character is Willie (Timothy Hutton), who is ambivalent about girlfriend Tracy (Annabeth Gish) so heads back home to Knight's Ridge, Massachusetts to sort things out during his 10-year high school reunion. Here, he hooks up with old pals Tommy (Matt Dillon) and Paul (Michael Rapaport), each of whom is also flailing helplessly in his own romantic mess.

Ethan Hawke (Training Day) courageously attempts to capture the essence of what makes this landmark so addictive in his directorial debut, Chelsea Walls. A collage of character plotlines that only barely intersect, Chelsea is a unique and respectable experiment in its focus on an inanimate object as its central character. Backed by a score that appropriately feels as if it were written while observing the production, Hawke creates an environment easily accessible to both New Yorkers and the non-initiated.

In the wake of "Reservoir Dogs," "Pulp Fiction" and "Jackie Brown," film buffs have come to expect intrepid sub-Hollywood scavenger Quentin Tarantino to bowl us over with ingenious, amped-up, style-blending B-movie off-shoots made with a quantum leap of depth and cinematic panache.
Influenced by cut-rate, under-the-counter samurai imports, spaghetti Westerns and popcorn-munching exploitation flicks of bygone eras, the writer-director's two-part revenge saga "Kill Bill" ("Volume 2" is due in February) has sexy, gritty, droll, deluxe Tarantino élan coming out its ears -- and absurdly grisly dam-bursts of stage blood spurting from other violently severed body parts in ambitious marathon swordfight scenes. But while the picture oozes style (and blood), it comes up short on substance -- which is what has always set Tarantino's grindhouse homages head and shoulders above the pulp pictures that inform them.
Choreographed by both kung-fu genius Yuen Wo-Ping ("The Matrix" movies, "Charlie's Angels," "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," etc.) and Japanese Kenjutsu legend Sonny Chiba (who plays an eccentric master sword-maker in the film), these focal-point fights are the culmination of a plot about a sultry, strong-willed former assassin (Uma Thurman) who was left for dead when her employer -- possibly peeved by her resignation, although "Volume 1" is vague on that point -- turned her wedding into a massacre.

Everything the kinetic, colorful, superficially violent "Kill Bill: Volume 1" lacked in depth and character is remedied tenfold in Quentin Tarantino's stunning, cunning conclusion to his epic revenge fantasy.
Gone are the absurdist bloodbaths and the superficial grindhouse storytelling, and in their stead the wily writer-director transitions (with masterfully effortless cinematic aplomb) into a character- and dialogue-driven feast of substance and surprises -- which is, nonetheless, still punctuated by spectacularly stylish swordplay.
After a winking mock-noir prologue of recap narration, Tarantino opens "Volume 2" with a parched black-and-white flashback to the wedding rehearsal (glimpsed throughout last year's installment) at which The Bride (Uma Thurman), an unnamed and incognito former assassin trying to go straight, was brutally gunned down (along with everyone in attendance) by her former compatriots.

Every time Woody Allen miscalculates and makes a movie as weak as last year's "Celebrity," I start to wonder if he's down for the count. I should know better.
Once again, Allen has come roaring back with "Sweet and Lowdown," a buoyant, saucy and deftly original faux documentary that purports to be about a fictitious jazz guitar legend named Emmett Ray (Sean Penn).
According to the old-timer radio jocks and jazz historians (writer-director Allen among them) that populate the movie's modern interview interludes, Emmett was a neurotic (no, really?), weasely egoist of a 1930s lounge lizard louse, whose curt and cocky facade barely masked a belly full of wild insecurities, the main one being that he was the world's second greatest jazz guitarist.
