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."

The Grammys are called music's biggest night for a reason.
With performances from Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Jack White, Frank Ocean, Miranda Lambert and more, the audience rocked their way through the 3.5 hour broadcast.
But no one was having more fun than Swift, 23, who was seen singing along and dancing to almost every song played throughout the night. But the singer-songwriter had plenty of reason to celebrate – earlier that day, she learned she won a Grammy for her song with The Civil Wars, "Safe & Sound," which appeared on The Hunger Games soundtrack.

It's hard to find a musical artist with a career as diverse as Sting's: In his more than 30-year career, the singer-songwriter has explored the worlds of rock, jazz, world beats and classical music – not to mention acting.
The secret to his versatility? "I was fortunate growing up in the '60s because in England we only had one radio station," the singer said in a moderated Q&A following a screening of his latest acting project, Twin Spirits, a musical and theatrical love story about composer Robert Schumann.
"We had classical music, we had pop music, we had everything in between," he says of the station's rotation. "So I grew up thinking that music was this one thing. I mean, I appreciated the difference between classical music and pop music, but it's the same building blocks and it still has the same feeling to it. It's a common language."

He's usually the one meting out the criticism, but this time it's Simon Cowell who's on the receiving end of some particularly harsh words about his talent – from Sting.
The rock star heaped criticism on Cowell's British version of American Idol – The X Factor – describing the show as "appalling" and promoting bland, soulless music in an interview with the London Evening Standard.
"It's a preposterous show, and you have judges who have no recognizable talent apart from self-promotion," Sting, 58, said. "Basically I was looking at televised karaoke where they conform to stereotypes. It is a soap opera which has nothing to do with music."
