Released in 2002 and based on the book of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis, 'The Rules of Attraction' featured an ensemble cast including hot young stars like James van der Beek and Jessica Biel in an interweaving, darkly comedic series of narratives set at a New Hampshire college. Van der Beek's character, Sean Bateman, was the younger brother of Patrick Bateman, the lead character from Ellis' 'American Psycho,' immortalized on screen by Christian Bale just a couple of years prior. While 'The Rules of Attraction' wasn't the hit that 'American Psycho' was with audiences, the film went on to quickly gain cult status. 12 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.

Based on everything we've seen, and read, about Paul Schrader's trainwreck-in-the-making 'The Canyons,' it's unfortunate that the first clip from the indie is such a bore. Well, until the last 15 seconds or so, but even that is dark/trying to be dark. For the most part, you'll watch as Lindsay Lohan wanders around a house calling her own cell phone while a man ("ex"-porn star James Deen) sleeps in a nearby bed.
Author and noted eccentric Bret Easton Ellis and Paul Schrader have been working to put the finishing touches on 'The Canyons,' their crowd-funded drama starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen, and now you can (sort of) see what those crazy kids have been up to with the first official teaser trailer.
