The Canyons is a steamy thriller with main themes including lust, jealousy, and revenge. This movie explores some of the darker sides of the human psyche.
Lindsay Lohan's latest comeback vehicle, "The Canyons," opened on Friday, but it didn't exactly make a big splash. The theatrical opening was largely a symbolic one—the movie was only playing on one screen at the IFC Center in New York—but the day's box office returns seem to be a bad symbol for Lohan's career. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film took in about $3,300 on opening day. At first glance, that doesn't seem so bad—this week's box-office leader, "2 Guns," grossed just about the same amount per theater—but a high-profile NYC premiere could do better.
Why this is a thing escapes me, but here it is. If you’ve been dying for some more Lindsay Lohan news, then here you go. Happy Thanksgiving. I present to you the laughably bad teaser trailer for her newest flick, “The Canyons.” What the heck is “The Canyons?” Well, it’s directed by Paul Schrader and written by Bret Easton Ellis, and aside from Lindsay Lohan, it stars porn star James Deen in his break-out role that doesn’t seem like that much of a stretch for a porn star, honestly.
Bret Easton Ellis has been banned from the GLAAD Media awards… and seems surprised. Though the writer and director is gay, the gay community has apparently found many (many, many) of his Twitter posts offensive. "As a gay man in a domestic partnership who plans to get married I'm sad to hear I've been banned by GLAAD from attending tomorrow's event," the “Canyons” director tweeted. "GLAAD is supposedly 'furious' about my tweets.
Hey there, Pot. How's the kettle and kids? Pro Tip, kids: know when to shut up. Lindsay Lohan apparently has taken the Los Angeles County Court system's handling of former Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes' wild California joy rides a bit personally. Sunday evening, the star of Bret Easton Ellis' "The Canyons" and Lifetime's Old Hollywood biopic "Liz & Dick" took some select shots at how the legal systems has - or, as she sees it, has not - reined Bynes in after a half-dozen vehicular infractions and incidences of property damage in under six months.
One's a fairly new mother. The other is the darling of Los Angeles County authorities. One stepped largely off the Hollywood radar to raise a family. The other has a hard time landing big roles because her every moment behind a working automobile's wheel is a "24"-style countdown to property damage and/or bodily harm. Different though they are, Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan have decided enough feuding is enough. Star Magazine reports via Film News UK that the once-feuding actresses came together recently in the interest of burying a feud going back to Duff's break-out years on The Disney Channel's "Lizzie McGuire" and Lohan's circa "Mean Girls" and "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
Seriously, Lindsay? The police want to chat with you again? That's twice this week, and it's only Tuesday. Who's your manager these days, DMX? The sun rose in the East today on a hot day in Phoenix that ends in "Y," so it follows suit that Lindsay Lohan has a date to chat with law enforcement. TMZ reported Tuesday that the star of Bret Easton Ellis' "The Canyons" and Lifetime's upcoming Elizabeth Taylor biopic "Liz & Dick" that Santa Monica, Calif.
This is why we can't have nice things, folks....some way or another, they keep ending up in Lindsay Lohan's possession. Oh, that Lohan. Are police playing "Rock, Paper, Scissors" or just flipping a coin to decide who gets to chat with her about which infraction? Santa Monica, Calif. police already want a chat with her about suspicions she lied in her account of her June wreck on Pacific Coast Highway with a big rig, but TMZ now also reports the star of Bret Easton Ellis' "The Canyons" claims she's been framed in a six-figure jewelry theft.
Apparently Lindsay Lohan is the new go-to actress for art films and music videos. First there was the short art film shot by Richard Phillips, featuring Lohan lounging around a mansion in Malibu in a bikini, and then there were the recent rumors that Lohan will be featured in the newest Lady Gaga video. Now, it looks like Lohan might be teaming up with James Franco for a new film (or "art project" as he puts it). According to a casting breakdown posted on Actor's Access, Franco is shooting a feature film that tells the story of "the life of two Hollywood celebrities.
