J.J. ABRAMS, DIRECTOR OF
STAR WARS: EPISODE VII OFFERS
FANS A CHANCE TO BE IN THE MOVIE


Fans can now win a chance to be in Episode VII. The director has introduced a charity initiative in which donors are entered for a chance to visit the set and appear in the highly anticipated film.

Called Star Wars: Force For Change, the initiative will raise funds and awareness for UNICEF Innovation Labs and programs that benefit the world's most vulnerable children. By donating to the initiative, fans will be automatically entered into the contest.

Launched on May 21st, entries and contributions are made on the website StarWars.com/ForceForChange. The contest ends at one minute to Midnight (PT) on July 21st 2014.



"The Star Wars fans are some of the most passionate and committed folks around the globe," Abrams said in a statement. "We're thrilled to offer a chance to come behind the scenes as our VIP guests and be in Star Wars: Episode VII. We're even more excited that by participating in this campaign, Star Wars fans will be helping children around the world through our collaboration with UNICEF Innovation Labs and projects."

The grand prize calls for one winner and a guest to be flown to London where, Abrams noted, the majority of the film will be shot. While there, the pair will meet the cast and have a behind-the-scenes tour of the film-in-the-making. Best of all, the winner will become a Star Wars character complete with special hair, makeup and costume.

Other prizes that come with various levels of donations include posters, T-shirts, scripts signed by Abrams, limited edition Chewbacca busts and light saber hilts. Sure to be among of the most sought-after prizes---tickets to advance screenings of the much-anticipated film slated to hit theatres on December 15 2015.
COEN BROTHERS TO WRITE
STEVEN SPIELBERG'S KGB MOVIE
FOR TOM HANKS


The yet-untitled Steven Spielberg-Tom Hanks Cold War thriller just took an intriguing turn.

Joel and Ethan Coen have come on board to pen a draft of the screenplay that tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who was thrust into the center of the Cold War when he negotiated with the KGB for the release of U-2 spy pilot Gary Powers.



The project was set up last year but Hanks' attachment gave it a major boost. The Coen brothers' involvement adds momentum to the thriller, with an eye to a September 2014 shoot in Europe.



The Coen Borthers won screenplay Oscars for No Country for Old Men and Fargo. But the pair are also known to take on screenplays that they will not direct, as was the case with the Angelina Jolie-helmed Unbroken. Hanks worked with the Coen brothers on the 2004 thriller, The Ladykillers.

This movie will be the fourth feature film partnership between Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. The two previously collaborated on Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal and Catch Me If You Can.

TOMTOM RUNNER MULTI-SPORT:
SEE REAL-TIME RUN, CYCLE AND
SWIM DATA AT A GLANCE


The latest GPS running watch does away with sweaty, constrictive heart rate straps with a clever sensor that measures how your pulse subtly changes the color of your skin.

How does it work? Called the Runner Cardio, this watch uses technology that integrates a sensor under the watch itself. Two green LEDS shine onto your wrist and an optical sensor analyses the reflection. When your heart pumps and the blood changes the color of your skin slightly, the watch detects this to calculate your heart rate.



Extremely simple to use, most of the input is done with a four-way cursor button on the strap under the face of the watch. The drd menu is so intuitive that you'll be up and running within minutes.

There are advanced features such as intervals and custom targets for each run based on time or distance. Once you've completed your run, a TomTom smartphone app allows you to upload directly to TomTom's own sports tracking website, MySports.com.

Despite it's name, the Runner Cardio can also be used for cycling and swimming, giving speed and distance data. All in all, it's an attractive package; accurate and simple to use. It's available at sporting goods stores as well as online at TomTom.com, Amazon.com and Google.com

DIANE KEATON'S NEW BOOK
LET'S JUST SAY IT WASN'T PRETTY
TOPS NY TIMES BEST SELLER LIST


For more than 40 years, Diane Keaton has established herself as a fashion and beauty force both on and off-screen with her unforgettable menswear-inspired look in the Academy Award winning film, Annie Hall and the tux-and-tousled silver locks she rocked on stage at this year's Golden Globes. So it goes without saying that readers couldn't wait to crack open her new tome that became available in bookstores and online at the end of April 2014.



Keaton's look not only chronicles Hollywood's ever-changing ideals of beauty but also her firsthand experiences of staying true to herself over the years. The book follows in the wake of Keaton's best-selling memoir, Then Again, which captures her reflections on motherhood.

From dissecting her love of turtlenecks and hats (anyone remember her bowler look?) to the pros and cons of hair extensions and her thoughts on the definition of beauty, Keaton tackles Hollywood's obsession over looks with her signature candor and humor.

The leading lady also dishes on a few of her style tips incuding "when in doubt stick to black" and "every woman needs one pair of genius high heels", citing her own pair of seven-inch Louboutins which she lovingly refers to as "red medicine."

Consider our hats off to the gorgeous woman who made hats "in."
