Seven days in entertainment

Seven days in entertainment — Last week’s biggest events including Jessica Alba at the premiere of ”The Eye,” the Producers Guild Awards, and more

Posted on

Super Bowl mania infected everything in showbiz this week: Alicia Keys scored with a stream of hits before the big game, Heroes‘ lustrous Ali Larter tackled the awards-show circuit, and George Clooney punted with AMC’s Shootout for a little pre-Oscar press. As for Jack Black…why, we found him hitting the field with Mos Def.

Tale of the Tape
Jack Black and Mos Def reenact Rush Hour 2 in Be Kind Rewind, which premiered at Sundance last month and opens on Feb. 22. The guys star as video-store clerks who re-create films after their stock is erased. Serves them right for not dealing in DVD.

Web Obsession of the Week
Living in a world where everything moves backward is a scary prospect. But EVOL, Chris Vincze’s artful imagination of the situation — in which two lovebirds are the only people who can move themselves forward — is, more than anything, just sweet. (youtube.com/watch?v=hsF0Eqs8yQ8)

Someone (or something) is watching Jessica Alba at the L.A. premiere of her new horror flick, The Eye — and, quite frankly, it’s making us a little uncomfortable.

Bowling Us Over
On Feb. 3, Alicia Keys warmed up the Super Bowl crowd in Glendale, Ariz., with a medley that included ”Fallin’,” ”If I Ain’t Got You,” and her most recent hit, ”No One.”

Award Seasoned
With Michael Clayton up for seven nods, George Clooney taped a special Oscar episode of AMC’s Shootout with Laura Linney, Hal Holbrook, and Marion Cotillard on Feb. 4 in Beverly Hills.

Back in Action?
As an end to the writers’ strike in Hollywood seemed closer, Ali Larter presented at the Producers Guild Awards — where her NBC series, Heroes, was nominated. Click here for more on a possible deal.
