Slender Man

You probably remember when this was all over the news. Now you can be terrified in its fictional form with an eerie doc-like feel. Four high school girls in a small town in Massachusetts set out to debunk the myth of this terrifying creature but get more than they bargained for when one of them goes missing, seemingly becoming the latest victim.

Starring: Joey King, Javier Botet, Annalise Basso, and more!

The Meg

Shark Week may be over but that does not mean there is a lack of movies to terrify you for going in the water. A massive creature attacks a submarine crew and leaves them stranded at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. It becomes a race against time as a rescue diver must keep his team safe from a massive, prehistoric shark.

A.X.L.

The namesake here is a top-secret robotic dog used by the military with the help of artificial intelligence. When a mission goes wrong, he is sadly abandoned in the desert. Thankfully a young man finds him and the two quickly becoming friends, A.X.L. giving the man self-confidence and the man giving A.X.L. a reason to fight to stay away from the scientists who created him.

PG | Running Time 1hr 40m | Global Road Entertainment | Director: Oliver Daly

Dog Days

So if one of those ensemble movies starting adding dogs, that would be this film. A group of unconnected strangers soon start to develop relationships with one another through the actions of their dogs. It is cheesy as heck but sometimes you need something soft and cuddly and uncomplicated...kind of like man's best friend.

BOX OFFICE BREAKDOWN | Get your head in the game

eva longoria hollywood home

Eva Longoria’s proved she’s no Desperate Housewife.

The actress is doing pretty damn well actually, thank you very much, so well in fact, she recently bought herself an $11.4 million dollar, 2.75-acre pad.

House Tour Tuesday - See Selena Gomez's Stunning Calabasas Mansion

Set atop the breathtaking Laurel Canyon, the gated, European-style villa is a steal, as it has been reported by Zillow that the former owner was asking for closer to $13 million.

And this is no ordinary seller. Let’s just say the couches were probably jumped upon like an untrained puppy would and the library was stocked with L. Ron Hubbard hardcovers.

House Tour Tuesday—Beyonce and Jay Z’s New Orleans Mansion

Yep, none other than Mr. Tom Cruise used to live there. Now, the 2-story, 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home in the elite Hollywood Hills will be enjoyed by the elegant 40-year-old Eva, who showed Cruise the money.

The gorgeous home is decked in wide plank oak floors, Venetian plaster walls, and an Italian farmhouse-style kitchen with chef-worthy appliances. Eva’s a restauranteur, so this was surely a hot selling point.

Madonna Buys $20 Million Penthouse In Tel Aviv—Take A 3D Tour!

There's also an elaborate guesthouse with 4 more bedrooms, 4 baths, a lagoon swimming pool, a spa, and a waterfall! Tom, why are you giving this all up… have you gone into Oblivion?

If Eva ever gets maternal, there is a children’s playground for the little ones to explore. Sorry Suri, say “bye bye” to your swing set.

Looking At 17-Year-Old Kylie Jenner’s $2.7 Mil House Can Seriously Fuck Your Zen Up

For the winos, Daily Mail reports that the sprawling home features a wine cellar with a tasting room, and a party room for entertaining if Eva wants to invite A Few Good Men over for a Cocktail.

It’s been reported that Eva’s got a new special someone in her life, so perhaps they’ll be shacking up in this palace of a property.

Congrats Eva, let’s hope your new TV show, Telenovela is a hit, otherwise, you may need to rent out the guesthouse.

Check out Longoria's pricey new pad below—and you can take a tour of other stars' homes here

 

 

Are you going on vacation this year?

What do you wear to travel long haul?

Jeans? Sweats? Or a full on stylist put together outfit complete with sky rocket heels? (No prizes for guessing which of these three the Kardashian Klan opt for).

Some celebrity travel attire has to be seen to be believed. Now obviously they don’t fly coach so have all the room they need to change mid air, but even so—could you squeeze your feet back into a pair of tiny stilettos after a 12 hour flight?

Check out our gallery and let us know what you think...
