›  Channing Tatum And Adam Driver Are Your New Favorite Criminals

Channing Tatum and Adam Driver are the comedy duo we deserve.

In “Logan Lucky,” they play Southern nitwits turned criminal masterminds who hatch a plan for a detailed heist during a NASCAR race. 

The first “Logan Lucky” trailer previews Steven Soderbergh’s first film since the director said he would retire from filmmaking in 2013. Soderbergh has described the project as an “anti-glam version of an ‘Ocean’s’ movie.”

Riley Keough plays the protagonists’ sister, who joins their scheme with the help of Joe Bang (Daniel Craig), a prison inmate who knows a thing or two about blowing up bank vaults. Also on hand to test out their Southern charm: Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston, Katie Holmes, Seth MacFarlane, Sebastian Stan and Jim O’Heir.

“Logan Lucky” opens Aug. 18.

›  Eddie Vedder And Guns N' Roses Pay Tribute To Chris Cornell During Europe Concerts

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder was emotional Saturday during the opening stop on a European solo tour, his first gig since longtime friend and former collaborator Chris Cornell died on May 18.

Vedder made no direct mention of Cornell, the lead vocalist for Soundgarden and Audioslave, during his Amsterdam show in the Netherlands, according to Consequence of Sound, but he altered lyrics and addressed substance abuse, an issue that plagued Cornell prior to his suicide. During the set’s first song, “Long Road,” Vedder amended the words to say, “Without you, something is missing.”

Vedder also performed a cover of Neil Young’s “The Needle and the Damage Done,” a song about heroin addiction.

Later during the gig, when a fan shouted “I love you,” Vedder reportedly responded, “Thank you. I need it ? we all need it. I’m thinking of a lot of people tonight, and some in particular and their families. And I just know that healing takes time, if it ever happens. It takes time, and that means you have to start somewhere. So let it be music. Let it be love and togetherness. And let it be Amsterdam.”

Vedder and Cornell worked together when Cornell was the lead singer of the rock band Temple of the Dog, which united the founding members of Pearl Jam. 

Guns N’ Roses also paid tribute to Cornell on Saturday, during a show in Ireland. The band performed “Black Hole Sun,” Soundgarden’s defining hit. 

Duff McKagan, Guns N’ Roses’ bass guitarist, collaborated with Cornell in the supergroup Mad Season, which also featured members of Alice in Chains and Queens of the Stone Age. 

Guns N’ Roses are among many acts that have covered “Black Hole Sun” in recent days, including Ryan Adams, Ann Wilson and Norah Jones.

›  Sofia Coppola Becomes Second Woman To Win Cannes Film Festival's Directing Prize

Ending a 56-year gap, Sofia Coppola became the second woman to receive the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival as the gala wrapped up on Sunday.

Russian Yuliya Solntseva won for “The Story of the Flaming Years” in 1961. Coppola was honored for “The Beguiled,” a Southern Gothic horror that updates the 1971 Civil War drama starring Clint Eastwood. Three of the director’s previous features ? “The Virgin Suicides,” “Marie Antoinette” and “The Bling Ring” ? also competed at Cannes.

“I was thrilled to get this movie made and it’s such an exciting start to be honored in Cannes,” Coppola said in a statement.

Along with praising “my great team and cast,” she thanked Universal Studios and one of its speciality divisions, Focus Features, “for their support of women-driven films.”

Nicole Kidman, a star of “The Beguiled” and three other Cannes selections, received a special prize marking the French festival’s 70th anniversary.

The coveted Palme d’Or, one of filmmaking’s most lauded honors, went to “The Square,” a surprising choice for a festival that typically favors intense dramas. “The Square” is a farce about an art museum staging a radical exhibition that sparks a social crisis. 

Pedro Almódovar, the acclaimed director of “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and “Talk to Her,” headed this year’s jury, which also included Will Smith, Jessica Chastain, Chinese actress Fan Bingbing, South Korean director Park Chan-wook and Italian director Paolo Sorrentino.

Here’s the full list of winners. Many of the hits at Cannes factor into the Oscar race.

Palme d’Or: “The Square,” a Swedish art-world satire directed by Ruben Östlund

Grand Prix: “120 Beats Per Minute,” an AIDS drama directed by Robin Campillo

Jury Prize: “Loveless,” a Russian missing-child drama directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev

Best Actress: Diane Kruger, “In the Fade”

Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, “You Were Never Really Here”

Best Director: Sofia Coppola, “The Beguiled” 

Best Screenplay: a tie between “You Were Never Really Here” (written by Lynne Ramsay) and “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” (written by Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou)

Camera d’Or, honoring the best debut feature: “Jeune Femme,” directed by Léonor Sérraille 

Best Short Film: “A Gentle Night,” directed by Qiu Yang

70th Anniversary Prize: Nicole Kidman, who starred in four Cannes titles (”The Beguiled,” “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” and “Top of the Lake: China Girl”)

›  A 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' Set Features Around $2 Million In Snacks

Blockbusters are caught in an endless cycle of bigger-is-better clichés. Budgets have swollen so much over the past few decades that moderation is now a foreign concept for Hollywood’s major studios. This phenomenon manifests most obviously in the special-effects arena, but don’t for one second assume it doesn’t also mean first-class snacks.

One “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie alone allotted a whopping estimate of $2 million for craft services, the department that provides meals and goodies for everyone on the set throughout production. Jack Davenport, who played Commodore James Norrington in the first three “Pirates” films, told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Sunday that a chef once informed him the food budget was “essentially unlimited.”

“I was like, ‘What does that mean?,” Davenport said. “He was like, ‘I don’t know, $2 million.’ I was like, ‘For snacks?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah?’ That sounds frivolous, but it wasn’t. He obviously had to keep people fed.”

Another “Pirates” alum, Lee Arenberg, who played Pintel, recounted the “legendary speech” a producer delivered at the end of a shoot, in which he said caterers had prepared 170,000 meals. 

For added context: The entire price tag of this year’s Best Picture winner, “Moonlight,” totaled a mere $1.5 million. 

Of course, $2 million is chump change given the “Pirates” movies’ ballooning budgets. The 2003 original cost Disney $140 million, while its 2006 and 2007 sequels climbed to a mind-boggling $225 million and $300 million, respectively. But contextualized within Hollywood history, $2 million is a wild sum: In the early days, actors and crew members brought their own lunches to work, brown-bag style. Now, studios will drop $2 million on food, but they’ll rarely greenlight the mid-budget original stories that drove the movie industry as recently as the 1990s. 

The newest “Pirates” installment, “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” opened this weekend with a $230 million budget, drawing at least $62 million in ticket sales. Its predecessor, 2011’s “On Stranger Tides,” was the franchise’s weakest grosser domestically, but it saw the heftiest overseas revenue, exemplifying Hollywood’s reliance on foreign ticket sales. Many sequels, reboots and spin-offs have under-performed among American audiences over the past few years, but their foreign profits make that a non-issue.

The “Pirates” sequels’ scathing reviews aren’t enough to keep them down, though box-office analysts expect “Dead Men” could become the series’ weakest stateside moneymaker to date.

But hey, at least everyone on the set ate well.

›  Kumail Nanjiani Tells Grads To ?Have Sex With An Immigrant?

Immigrants may feel a little tense about what’s happening in American these days, but comedian Kumail Nanjiani has a plan to make things feel a little more relaxing for everyone.

“Have sex with an immigrant,” Nanjiani told the graduates of Grinnell College in Iowa during a commencement speech. “We’re going through a tough time right now, and it would just be really great for morale.”

Nanjiani graduated from the liberal arts school in 2001. Grinnell invited him back this week to deliver the commencement address to the graduating class of 2017. During the ceremony, the school awarded Nanjiani an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters.

The star of HBO’s “Silicon Valley” opened up to the graduates about his experience moving from Pakistan to Iowa for college and how it shaped the way he moved through the world. 

“When I came to Grinnell I was a devout Muslim who had never romantically touched a girl and I was going to get a degree that guaranteed me a job,” Nanjiani said. “By the time I graduated I was basically a Rastafarian with a white American girlfriend and a philosophy degree. College changes you, is my point.”

He also offered advice on how to take on bigotry, even if it is uncomfortable.

“We cannot expect others to understand our point of view if we don’t understand theirs,” he said. “It’s uncomfortable and awkward and infuriating and it hurts your brain, but with that pain can come growth and real change.”

“Being a fish out of water is tough, but that’s how you evolve,” he added. “I think that’s scientifically accurate — I don’t know, I had a liberal arts education.”

Nanjiani advised the graduates to live with intention and not fear failure ? unless, he joked, you’re the person who created the exploding Samsung Galaxy phones.

“I never thought big picture,” Nanjiani said. “That would have overwhelming. So what I’m saying is, you can go slow. Allow your dreams and goals to change, but live an intentional life.”

He continued: “Here’s the big secret I’ve learned in the last few years: Nobody knows what they’re doing ... Everybody’s winging it out there. Some people are just better at pretending to be confident because nobody’s done ? nobody’s cooked.”

Watch Nanjiani’s full commencement speech below.

›  Celebrities Mourn Gregg Allman After News Of His Death

News of Gregg Allman’s death was met with an outpouring of grief on Saturday. 

The legendary musician “passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia,” according to a statement on Allman’s official website, which noted his family planned on releasing their own statement soon. “Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.”

Celebrities and friends, including Allman’s ex-wife Cher, took to social media to remember the singer:   

Man. #WhippingPost was the fabric of the musical blanket of my childhood. Thank you #DuaneAllman!!!

›  'Pirates 5' Eyes Box Office Domination While 'Baywatch' Drowns

Box office numbers prove Disney knew what it was doing when the studio decided to make the fifth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. 

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” opened on Friday and is leading the Memorial Day-weekend box office with about $110 million in ticket sales worldwide. About $23.4 million comes from domestic ticket sales. The film had a production budget of $230 million and is well on its way to making that back. 

The film, which again stars Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, and other franchise favorites Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and Keira Knightley, has been largely panned by critics and currently has a 32 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

In a scathing New York Times review, A.O. Scott wrote, “This movie would be a rip-off even if someone paid you to see it. Because, to be honest, it’s barely a movie at all.”

But reviews like these (and there are many) haven’t kept the viewing public out of their seats or from enjoying the film. The movie currently has a 78 percent fresh rating from audiences

While “Pirates” is expected to sail through to a $275 million opening-weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “Baywatch” is drowning after it opened with only $4.6 million in ticket sales on Thursday. Disappointing sales followed on Friday, when the film, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron, took in around $5.7 million. 

Like “Pirates 5,” “Baywatch” was also trashed by critics and its fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes from professional reviewers currently sits at 19 percent. Audiences ? the few who have seen the movie anyway ? appear to enjoy the film much more. The audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes is currently at 71 percent fresh.

But even if “Baywatch” is drowning, it’s not completely dead in the water. According to Deadline, the film is on track to earn around $26.8 million over the four-day weekend. Considering it cost less that $70 million to make, the film will more than likely make its money back, especially once it opens in foreign markets. That’s why producers are already talking about a sequel.

›  Gregg Allman, Classic Rock Legend Of The Allman Brothers Band, Dead

Gregg Allman, one of the two brothers from legendary rock band the Allman Brothers Band, has died. He was 69.

He “passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia,” according to a statement on Allman’s official website. “Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.”

Allman was born on Dec. 8, 1947, in Nashville. He, along with his brother Duane, helped to create one of the most successful classic rock bands of all time. With that came not just music, but drugs, women and ? at times ? tragedy, including the early death of Duane.

In his later years, Allman developed hepatitis C, and suffered from an irregular heartbeat and a respiratory infection and had to have a liver transplant. In 2017, he canceled a planned summer tour, sparking worries about his health. 

Allman was born to Willis Allman, a WWII veteran who stormed Normandy Beach, came back to his bride after the war, and had two sons. His father’s life was cut short when Gregg was just 2 years old. After Willis Allman offered a stranger a ride home from a bar one night, the man fatally shot him in the back.

Neither Gregg nor Duane showed any interest in emulating their father’s military career. The boys hated the military school their mother sent them to, but found their footing in music while there, according to Rolling Stone.

“I learned to play mostly from black people,” Allman told The Guardian in 2015. “We used to listen to a station that called itself ‘The black spot on your dial.’ It played Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, and it hit Duane and me like spaghetti hitting a wall.”

By the time the Allman Brothers Band was formed in 1969, Gregg and Duane were legitimate country hippies ? long-haired, drug-smoking free-loving spirits. Duane played guitar, with Gregg on vocals. Other founding members of the band included drummers “Butch” Trucks and Jai “Jaimoe” Johnny Johnson, along with “Dickey” Betts on guitar and Berry Oakley on bass.

The Allman Brothers Band blended country, jazz, blues and Southern rock in such seamless riffs, pounding drums and twangy vocals that it earned them a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, and a Lifetime Achievement award at the Grammys in 2012. The movie “Almost Famous” was also, in part, inspired by the band.

The Allman Brothers Band produced their biggest hits in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, including “Ramblin’ Man,” “Midnight Rider” and “Whipping Post.” During this time, the band experimented heavily with drugs and attracted many groupies on tour.

“Gregg was just a pretty boy,” drummer Butch Trucks told Rolling Stone in 1999. “He had blond hair, and the girls were hanging all over him.”

In his book My Cross To Bear, Gregg bragged about his sexual exploits.

“I would have women in four or five different rooms,” Allman wrote about staying in hotels while on tour. “Mind you, I wouldn’t lie to anybody; I’d just say, ‘I’ll be right back.’”

During those earlier years, he and his bandmates were also experimenting with drugs, including (but not limited to) PCP, cocaine and speed. The band loved psychedelic mushrooms so much, they made them their unofficial logo and tattooed a mushroom on each of their calves, according to Rolling Stone.

In 1971, just as the band found itself being propelled into stardom, Duane Allman died in a motorcycle accident. He was  24.

“Duane was the king of laughter, always making jokes,” Gregg Allman told The Guardian in 2015. “You’ve got to keep laughing. It was what Duane would have done, and wanted us to do.”

At Duane’s funeral, Gregg played songs on his older brother’s antique guitar.

“This is a very old guitar, a very beautiful piece,” he said to a crowd of 300. “It was made in 1920 and I’m very proud to have it. And I’m very proud that you all came.”

In 1975, Allman married singer Cher in Las Vegas. The marriage lasted nine days, ending after Allman allegedly pulled a knife on her while trying to score heroin. They reconciled after learning Cher was pregnant with their son, Elijah Blue.

In 1977, Cher divorced Allman for good. The final straw was reportedly at an awards show, when Allman passed out face-first in a plate of spaghetti.

“Every now and then,” Allman wrote in his 2012 memoir, “I’ll think of all the hell I caused other people over the years.” 

Allman eventually embraced sobriety. 

“I’m doing great,” Allman told the Savannah Morning News in 2013. “I’ve been clean and sober for 19 years.”

Rest easy, midnight rider. 

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story gave the wrong year of Allman’s birth. Language has also been changed regarding Allman’s role in “Ramblin’ Man.”

›  Newly Single Leonardo DiCaprio Surrounded By A Bevy Of Models In Cannes

Looks like Leonardo DiCaprio is doing just fine after that breakup. 

The newly single actor, who split with his model girlfriend Nina Agdal earlier this month, was spotted in Cannes on Thursday at the amfAR Gala, surrounded by a bevy of beautiful women including Bella Hadid and Rita Ora. DiCaprio is known for his penchant for models, having previously dated Gisele Bundchen, Bar Refaeli, Erin Heatherton, Toni Garrn and Kelly Rohrbach, so these photos are, shall we say, priceless. 

DiCaprio and Agdal dated for over a year before their split was announced last week. Shortly after the reveal, the actor was spotted with friend and fellow bachelor Tobey Maguire at LA hotspots The Peppermint Club and Avenue LA. Maguire was also in attendance at the amfAR event in France’s Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. He was photographed onstage with Chris Tucker, Uma Thurman, Will Smith and Jessica Chastain during the soiree. 

We can imagine Tobey sending Leo a text about letting loose in Cannes, to which Leo responds: You mean tonight, Boo Boo? Club-wise?

Head over to the Daily Mail to see more photos of DiCaprio in his element.

›  Ben Stiller And Christine Taylor Split After 17 Years Of Marriage

Actors Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor are calling it quits after 17 years of marriage, the couple announced on Friday. 

“With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate,” the couple said in a joint statement to Entertainment Tonight. “Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time.”

Stiller, 51, and Taylor, 45, met in 1999 on set of the never-aired TV pilot “Heat Vision and Jack.” After a short engagement, they married in May 2000 in Hawaii. The couple have two children together; Ella Olivia, 15, and Quinlin Dempsey, 11. 

In 2013, Stiller opened up about his relationship with Taylor to Parade magazine. “[Our] relationship was a gradual thing that happened over a quick period of time, maybe seven or eight months,” he said.  “We just started hanging out with each other and it developed into, “Wow, this feels great. I really like this person. I think I love this person. I really do - I love this person.” It hit me out of the blue.”

News of the split comes as somewhat of a surprise, given that the “Zoolander 2” star told “ET” that the secret to the couple’s long-lasting marriage was “having a sense of humor.”

“I think you got to laugh. Because you know after a while you know life is life you know?” Stiller said in February 2016. “We all have to deal with what life throws at us, so you got to have a sense of humor about it. If you can share that, at the end, it makes a huge difference.”

›  Brad Pitt, Courtney Love Among Mourners At Chris Cornell's Funeral

Soundgarden rocker Chris Cornell was laid to rest on Friday in a funeral and memorial service at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery attended by celebrities Brad Pitt, Christian Bale and Courtney Love and the singer’s family.

Cornell, 52, was found dead in his hotel in Detroit last week hours after his band played a concert in the city. The Detroit Medical Examiners Office determined he had committed suicide by hanging himself.

Outside the cemetery, dozens of fans gathered to pay tribute to the grunge rocker. 

“Honestly, it feels like I’ve had a death in my family,” said Regina Padilla, 42, who took the day off of work and drove 40 miles (60 km) to attend the service.

“I just feel like his life was cut short,” she added.

Cornell had spoken openly of his drug and alcohol addiction in the past, as well as periods of depression and agoraphobia.

But his wife, Vicky, said last week she did not believe the singer intended to kill himself, suggesting that an anxiety drug he was taking may have played a role in impairing his judgment.

In an emotional open letter published by Billboard this week, she said she was sorry she was not with her husband the night he died.

“I’m sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night,” she wrote. “I’m sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher.”

After Soundgarden broke up in 1997, Cornell in 2001 joined members of Rage Against The Machine to form Audioslave, which released an acclaimed self-titled album. Soundgarden reunited in 2010 and the band embarked on its latest tour in April.

A lot of his lyrics could be sad, but his music was so beautiful,” said fan Chris Heathcoat, 46, who brought white roses to the cemetery.

“Chris was also like that second brother I never had that can sing my pain away or sing me to sleep or wake me up and give me the determination to move on,” he said.

Seattle-born Cornell was the latest member of the elite 1990s grunge rock movement to die from either a drug overdose or suicide. Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, who was married to Courtney Love, killed himself in 1994. Layne Staley of Alice in Chains and Scott Weiland of the Stone Temple Pilots both died of drug overdoses.

›  Reporter's Reaction To 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Ride Is A Joy To Behold

Cory James will likely think twice about broadcasting live from a theme park ride again.

The news reporter for ABC30 gave viewers a preview of the revamped “Guardians of the Galaxy”-themed ride at Disney’s California Adventure Park on Friday.

But it’s his terrified reaction to the experience that’s now going viral.

Hilarious video shows him screaming as the elevator-style ride goes up and down. Making it funnier still is the composed nature of his fellow passengers, who appear totally tranquil in comparison.

“This was not a good idea,” says James once the ride, which opened Saturday, has “thankfully” ended.

He later lightheartedly tweeted about the ordeal being “traumatic.”
