PLUS: JACK BLACK, KEIRA KNIGHTLEY AND OTHER STARS ON BEING FRUGAL

If you’re a regular reader you know

that I usually start this editorial with

some interesting tidbit about our

cover girl or boy. But this month I’m

going to be a bit indulgent and tell you

why this particular issue is so special to

everyone here at Famous.

In November of 1999 we launched this

magazine as the in-theatre publication

for Famous Players theatres. We thought

that was pretty great — we had an instant,

national readership of movie lovers.

Then, in 2005, Famous Players was

purchased by Cineplex, as was this magazine. Since that time, we have

continued to be available in theatres bearing the Famous Players and

Alliance Atlantis names.

But as of this issue, Famous is available in all Cineplex Entertainment

theatres — that means Cineplex Odeon, Famous Players and Galaxy

cinemas (we’re still at Alliance theatres too). So some of you may be

looking at Famous for the very first time. Welcome.

We hope you enjoy reading this magazine as much as we enjoy

putting it together. You’ll find that, even though Famous is meant to

be fun and entertaining, we take creating it very seriously. Our

feature stories are based on interviews with the biggest names in

Hollywood, we scour the entertainment world for unique and

interesting photographs (rather than the usual red-carpet fare), and

we do everything we can to keep you in the loop when it comes to

current and upcoming films.

And how great is this? To celebrate the expansion, we’re going to

send one lucky contest winner to Los Angeles to attend the red-carpet

premiere of Transformers. Check out page 18 for all the details.

Speaking of upcoming films, you may have noticed that this is our

Spring Preview Issue. Starting on page 19 you can read about all the

movies being released from now until the end of May, with spotlights

on some of the most exciting films.

Plus, each month of that preview starts with a great interview —

March is Adam Sandler for Reign Over Me, a heartbreaking drama

about a guy who just can’t deal with reality after losing his family on

9/11; April is all about our cover girl, Scarlett Johansson, who stars in

The Nanny Diaries, an adaptation of the popular

tell-all book of the same name; and May goes to

Kirsten Dunst, whose spunky Mary Jane Watson

may finally get a proposal from her web-slinging

boyfriend in Spider-Man 3.

Plus, on page 14, you’ll find my chat with

Canadian actor Tom Cavanagh (Ed from Ed) about

his latest film, Gray Matters.

Once again, welcome to all of our new readers,

we’re thrilled to have you.
