Four real-life outlaws meet up in the town of Langston, Oklahoma to play a risky game. The winner of their shootout gets to collect their collected bounty: $80,000. The losers? Well, the losers will “die by dawn.” Such is the plot of director Jeymes Samuel‘s new short film, They Die By Dawn, which stars Michael K. Williams as Nat Love and Erykah Badu as Stagecoach Mary. The twist? Every character in the film is a historical figure who actually lived in the Old West. Oh, and all but three characters are African-American. Read more…
As we were psyching ourselves up for our Summer Movie Preview week and the movie season in general, we decided to ask the stars themselves what flicks they’re looking forward to. Some of them, as you can see in the video above, had their answers ready: The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus and Rock of Ages were popular choices. Others, like Michelle Williams, gave us embarrassed looks as they admitted to not having a ready made movie calendar in their heads. Well, Michelle and the rest of the you can relax now. We’ve got a handy-dandy list here. And before, while and after you print it out, don’t forget to vote for your favorite Heroes, Heroines, Villains and Funny Ladies from this summer’s movies!

There are many ways to tell whether you are truly a New Yorker or just one of the millions just stopping through — and I’ve always contended that you really know you’ve arrived when you witness someone taking a crap in the middle of the street. We are not alone in this. And that’s why VH1 News asked the glamorous stars, from NYC and Hollywood alike, attending the Tribeca Film Festival for the past two weeks to share their grossest New York moment. Just so we know where they stand.
“I one day saw the entire journey of a turd,” Mad Men star Rich Sommer said. “I was walking through Union Square and saw a man creating it, and then I walked by later in the day and it was still there, and then I walked by like four hours later and it was gone.”
Malin Akerman defines gross a little differently. “For those New Yorkers that have never been to the Box…” she began, talking about the risque burlesque club. “If you want to call it ‘burlesque’ — I have seen some of the grossest things ever at the Box.”
Judd Apatow has scary, rather than disgusting memories of his childhood in the city. “I kind of remember almost getting robbed when I was a kid on 8th Avenue, but now 8th Avenue is like the Disney store,” he said.
