Brad Pitt stepped out solo Wednesday night to mingle with an impressive crowd of A-listers – but he didn't forget his fans, either.
Showing his new zombie thriller World War Z for the first time, hehosted a star-packed screening at New York City's Museum of Modern Art – then zipped to Hoboken, N.J., where he surprised moviegoers at a late-night sneak preview.
"They said we got to do a showing in the city and I said okay, but we can't do it without showing it to the people who we made the film for," he told the Jersey fans. "So we decided to do it than no other place than Jersey. We've got a monster film, it's epic, scary as hell and I guarantee it's the most intense thing you will see all summer."

Making G.I. Joe: Retaliation with Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis and the Rock, Adrianne Palicki was not one to be intimidated – not after all the noises they made.
"I'm more macho than all those guys," the actress, perhaps best known for TV's Friday Night Lights (2006-11), boasts to PEOPLE. "You spend that much time with them – you hear them burp, fart – you immediately become one of the dudes."
Tatum, it seems, also did something even more for the gang.

This is a case for John McClane.
Die Hard director John McTiernan is headed to the slammer for a year, having lost his appeal to have his 2010 prison sentence overturned for lying to the FBI in a wiretapping case, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Like a scene out of a crime movie, the filmmaker, 62, pleaded guilty to hiring celebrity private investigator Anthony Pellicano to wiretap film producer Chuck Roven after they both worked on the movie Rollerball.
McTiernan had remained free on bail while he appealed the conviction (which was about lying, not wiretapping) to the U.S. Supreme Court. The highest court in the land has now declined to review the case.

Life's a beach, all right.
After showing off her bikini bod in Maui last weekend, Rumer Willis and boyfriend Jayson Blair hit the sand a few thousand miles away in Miami Beach, Fla., Thursday.
Rather then the little white number she sported in Hawaii, Willis wore a great-looking blue bikini, noting of the day's weather: "It is really cold here. I wasn't expecting it."
That night, Willis's outfit was something more modest. With her long hair flowing down her back and a long white dress, black bra and flat shoes ("more comfortable," she noted), she entertained a crowd of 800 locals and guests who gathered for the grand opening of the SLS Hotel South Beach.

The calendar says it's still summer and the kids call it back to school, but I say it's Oscar season.
Yes, already! I know this because on Thursday the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) blows into Canada, with 372 movies in competition representing some 72 countries. Sure, some of the buzzy movies from Cannes and Venice pop up, but Toronto is where everything starts to shake out. As usual, the biggest of the A-listers will be in town, towing their Oscar-bait projects with them.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis open the festivities with the world premiere of their time-travel mind-bender Looper, about a mob hitman (Gordon-Levitt) hired to kill his own future self (Willis). I'm not sure why you'd take that gig if you were Hitman the Younger, but I'll take it on faith that the film offers a convincing explanation.

Unlike its predecessor, The Expendables 2 gave me what I wanted almost immediately: impressive explosions, a frying pan used as a deadly weapon and an airborne motorcycle crashing into a helicopter.
In a sequel that doesn't take itself too seriously, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his band of muscle-bound misfits are ordered by the mysterious Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) to break into an explosive-rigged safe, which should be a cakewalk. However, after a member of the group is killed by the villainous – wait for it – Vilain (delightfully played by a preening Jean-Claude Van Damme), the gang sets out for revenge, joined for the first time by a butt-kicking female (Chinese actress Yu Nan).

Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton aren't the only celebrities who have been ordered to complete community service for committing a crime.
Scout Willis, 21, the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, was given two days of community service following her June 4 arrest in New York City for drinking in public and using a fake ID.
"It should be resolved as an ultimate dismissal and it will be," Scout's lawyer Stacey Richman said in court.

Just after she was arrested in New York City for allegedly drinking a beer in public and handing a police officer a fake ID, Scout Willis was seen out and about in the city.
Wearing sunglasses and holding a (non-alcoholic) beverage, Willis, 20, was photographed walking arm-in-arm with an unidentified man in New York Tuesday.
The middle daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore is due back in court on July 31, after refusing to plead guilty to the misdemeanor charges.

Scout Willis is due back in court on July 31 after being charged with two misdemeanors Tuesday. She allegedly drank a beer and handed cops a fake ID in New York's Union Square on Monday evening.
Her lawyer tells PEOPLE that Willis, 20, rejected the state's offer to plead guilty to the charges as they stand now because she would have a permanent criminal record – and that would be unreasonable.
"It would be outrageous to mar a person that's clearly going places – clearly seeking to have a career … with a criminal record," her attorney, Stacey Richman, tells PEOPLE. "The goal is clearly a non-criminal offer."

After allegedly drinking a beer and handing cops a fake ID, Scout Willis, the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, was charged with two misdemeanors in New York City.
The Brown University student, 20, was arrested at 6:30 p.m. Monday in Union Square for criminal impersonation and a violation of the open-container law, an NYPD spokesperson tells PEOPLE.
Willis, who's younger than the legal drinking age, was released without bail Tuesday following her arrest, reports New York's Daily News, which broke the story.
She'll return to Manhattan Criminal Court on July 31.
