Hugh Jackman suited up, and not in his Wolverine outfit, to attend the premiere of his new film, "Prisoners," on Thursday evening (September 12, 2013) at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills. Both Jackman and co-star Jake Gyllenhaal were dressed to impress on the evening as they both donned crisply fitted dark two-button suits and white shirts. Although, Gyllenhaal did strike a contrast with his polished upper body but lost style points below the ankles when it came to his shoes...coined by some in the media as "homeless shoes" covered in dust.
All the while 46 year old co-star Maria Bello rocked it from head to toe, looking great in a knee-length black skirt that she teamed with a sheer tank-top blouse with metallic embroidery and a pair of pointy pumps.
The actors were joined by fellow co-stars Terrence Howard, Viola Davis and Melissa Leo also looking quite stellar as well.

Gentlemen, start your engines! Selena Gomez, the 21-year-old singer/actress, was all "revved-up" and looking stunning while cruising down the Red Carpet wearing a Vera Wang dress, Jimmy Choo heels, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, at the "Getaway" Premiere in Westwood, CA last evening (August 26, 2013).

Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake, taking it and its unwitting owner (Gomez) on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are synched via a neural bridge, called “The Drift.” But as the enemy grows more powerful with each attack, even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) — who are teamed to drive a seemingly obsolete Jaeger. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
