The 1990 film 'Pretty Woman' followed the story of prostitute Vivian, who is picked up by rich businessman Edward to be his escort for an entire week, but along the way the pair develop feelings for each other and their relationship goes from strictly business to something much more meaningful. Originally planned as a dark drama, the film was transformed into a romantic comedy and made Julia Roberts into the leading lady she is today. 24 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.

'August: Osage County' looks like the kind of film that's primed to win Oscars. Based on the Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tracy Letts, the film is a high impact dramedy filled with all of the emotional turmoil and familial dysfunction you can imagine. The new trailer is probably only the tip of the iceberg.

'August: Osage County' Review

If disses were marble, Tracy Letts would be Michelangelo and 'August: Osage County' would be his David. His characters in this film, directed by John Wells and based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, are an extended family of well-off Oklahomans loaded with secrets and festering emotional wounds. They have gathered to bury the patriarch, played by Sam Shepard in one outstanding prologue scene.
Shepard may have been the Dad, but the Mom (Meryl Streep, in peak form, even for her) is the real power. A strong and severe woman who speaks her mind loudly and frequently, and is currently suffering from mouth cancer - an irony not lost on anyone - is facing her winter years by popping pills and settling scores. A major early set piece around a dinner table has Streep sitting like a General, barking humiliating things at her family. Why, you might be thinking, would I ever want to see such a thing? For starters, it is very, very funny.

Though she's still one of the biggest movies stars out there, for an actress like Julia Roberts, turning to television is one of the best ways to get leading roles. So it's no surprise she's leading Ryan Murphy's 'Normal Heart' adaptation for HBO. And she'll be joined by Avenger Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer.

Hollywood has been putting a twist on old fairy tales as of late with films like 'Mirror Mirror,' 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' and the upcoming 'Maleficent.' In these films, older actresses battle younger ones to retain their power -- is art imitating life?

'Mirror, Mirror' Review

First there were planet-killing asteroids. Then there was Truman Capote. Now it is Snow White that gets the two-movies in one treatment.
Whereas the forthcoming 'Snow White and the Huntsman' looks like it is striving for straight-up adventure fantasy in a neo-Tolkein vein, 'Mirror, Mirror' tries for family-friendly camp that's heavy on production design and sly corpsing. It almost works.
