Négyszintes, csodás lakás egy New York-i utcában. Meg kislányával kettesben költözik be ide. Imádja a hatalmas teret, és nevet a pánikszobán. A lakásnak ugyanis van egy titkos helyisége. Vasbeton falak és páncélajtó védi, saját rejtett telefonvonala, ételraktára, biztonsági-, önvédelmi- és riasztórendszere van. Ha valaki betörne hozzájuk, van hova bújni. Meg biztos benne, hogy sosem lesz rá szüksége. Egy éjjel három férfi tör rájuk. Jól ismerik a lakást, tudják, hogy miért jöttek. Meg a lányával a pánikszobába menekül, de hibázik. Amit a három mindenre elszánt férfi keres, az éppen ott van elrejtve. Összezárva, a szűk, sötét, halálos csapdákkal felszerelt helyen küzdenek meg egymással: hajnalra el kell dőlnie a halálos viadalnak…

Dwight David Yoakam (born October 23, 1956) is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor, known for his pioneering style of country music. First becoming popular in the mid-1980s, Yoakam has recorded more than twenty albums and compilations, charted more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and sold more than 25 million records. He has recorded five Billboard #1 albums, twelve gold albums, and nine platinum albums, including the triple-platinum This Time. In addition to his many achievements in the performing arts, he is also the most frequent musical guest in the history of The Tonight Show.
Since the start of his music career, Dwight Yoakam has proven he's more than just another guy with a guitar and a hat. He has risen from hot country star to being one of country music's biggest influences. While doing that, he has also become a critically acclaimed actor. Dwight Yoakam was born in the coal mining community of Pikeville, Kentucky, October 23, 1956. Soon after his birth, his family moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he was raised. As part of the Drama Club in his days at Northland High School in Columbus, he acted in school plays. He played 'Helen Keller (I)' (qv)'s brother in his sophomore year in the school's production of "The Miracle Worker." He followed that his Junior year playing the lead as Charlie in "Flowers for Algernon." He capped off his high school acting career as Richard Bravo in The "Demon Seed." In 1977, Dwight moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music. At the time, Nashville was moving away from the traditional country sound that he was playing. After a brief time there, he moved to California, which was more receptive to the music he was doing. He hooked up with producer/guitar virtuoso 'Pete Anderson (I)' (qv) in 1982. That began a musical relationship that became country music's equivalent to rock's Glimmer Twins ('Mick Jagger' (qv) and 'Keith Richards (II)' (qv)). Financial backing to make a high-quality recording came from Dwight's sister and brother-in-law, an insurance check that was meant to fix Dwight's El Camino and money raised from a benefit classical music concert staged by UCLA music professor Dr. Robert Winter. With the EP (extended play) that captured the "Dwight Yoakam sound." In 1984, Dwight released the six-song EP "Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc." on the independent Oak label, and then hit the road with such artists as 'Los Lobos' (qv) and 'Violent Femmes' (qv). Playing traditional country music, Dwight gained a following among not only country fans but punk rockers and rockabilly fans as well. This eclectic fan base brought him to the attention of many record labels. Warner Brothers signed him to its newly revived Reprise Record label in 1985. The EP's title and tracks were kept intact and more songs added to make a full album. At the time, country music was in the waning days of its _Urban Cowboy (1980)_ (qv) phase, and fans of country were hungry for something "new." This new sound was a return to a more traditional style that had been abandoned when 'John Travolta (I)' (qv) put on a cowboy hat. After establishing himself in the music industry, Dwight set his sights on his second love, acting. In 1991 he appeared as a stuntman/country singer in an episode of _"P.S.I. Luv U" (1991)_ (qv). This became the beginning of his professional acting career. In 1992, he appeared on the big screen for the first time in the 'Nicolas Cage' (qv)/'Dennis Hopper' (qv) film _Red Rock West (1993)_ (qv). In 1993, Dwight released what is considered his masterpiece, the album "This Time." He supported the album with a tour that lasted over a year and covered the world. In 1994, he received his first Grammy for the album's single, "Ain't That Lonely Yet." In 1996, he co-starred in 'Billy Bob Thornton' (qv)'s film _Sling Blade (1996)_ (qv). His work as the evil Doyle Hargraves left audiences speechless and critics hailing his performance. Dwight was included with the cast who were among the nominees for "Best Cast" by the Screen Actors Guild awards. As the 1990s drew to a close, Dwight proved that his music didn't have to suffer as he pursued more ventures into movies. While filming _The Newton Boys (1998)_ (qv), he wrote what many consider his most personal album, "A Long Way Home." All the tracks were written solely by Dwight. He began 1999 with a Grammy win for his contribution to the track "Same Old Train" from the various artists' album "Tribute to Tradition." He then added two new items to his resume: director and screenwriter. In _South of Heaven, West of Hell (2000)_ (qv), he not only starred, he made his directorial debut with a screenplay he authored. Dwight Yoakam continues to prove that he is able to successfully have careers in both film and music, without either profession suffering.
Forest Steven Whitaker (Longview, 1961. július 15. –) Oscar-díjas amerikai színész, rendező és producer. Legnagyobb szakmai sikerét a 2006-ban bemutatott Az utolsó skót király című filmjével érte el, amelyben Uganda hírhedt diktátorát, Idi Amin Dadát alakította. Alakításért nemcsak a legjobb férfi főszereplőnek járó Oscar-díjat érdemelte ki, hanem Golden Globe-díjjal és BAFTA-díjjal is jutalmazták. Ő az Oscar történetének negyedik olyan afroamerikai színésze, aki a legjobb férfi főszereplőként kapta meg az Oscar-díjat, rajta kívül eddig csak Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington és Jamie Foxx vehette át díjat ebben a kategóriában. További emlékezetes filmjei a Bird - Charlie Parker élete és a Szellemkutya című alkotások. Visszatérő szerepet kapott a The Shield című amerikai sorozatban, amiben Jon Kavanaugh hadnagyot játssza el.
Forest Steven Whitaker has packaged a king-size talent into his hulking 6' 2", 220 lb. frame. He won an Academy Award for his performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in the 2006 film The Last King of Scotland, and has also won a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. He is the fourth African-American male to win an Academy Award for Best Actor, following in the footsteps of Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, and Jamie Foxx. Whitaker was born on July 15, 1961 in Longview, Texas, to Laura Francis (Smith), a special education teacher, and Forest Steven Whitaker, an insurance salesman. His family moved to South Central Los Angeles in 1965. The athletically-inclined Whitaker initially found his way into college via a football scholarship. Later, however, he transferred to USC where he set his concentration on music and earned two more scholarships training as an operatic tenor. This, in turn, led to another scholarship at Berkeley with a renewed focus on acting and the performing stage. Whitaker made his film debut at the age of 21 in the raucous comedy _Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)_ (qv) wherein he played, quite naturally, a footballer. He went on to play another sports-oriented student, a wrestler, in his second film _Vision Quest (1985)_ (qv). He gained experience on TV as well with featured spots on such varied shows as _"Diff'rent Strokes" (1978)_ (qv) and _"Cagney & Lacey" (1981)_ (qv), not to mention the TV-movie Civil War epic _"North and South" (1985)_ (qv) and its sequel. The movie that truly put him on the map was _The Color of Money (1986)_ (qv). His one big scene as a naive-looking pool player who out-hustles 'Paul Newman (I)' (qv)'s Fast Eddie Felson was pure electricity. This led to more visible roles in the "A" class films _Platoon (1986)_ (qv), _Stakeout (1987)_ (qv), and _Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)_ (qv), which culminated in his breakout lead portrayal of the tortured jazz icon 'Charlie "Bird" Parker' in 'Clint Eastwood' (qv)'s passion project _Bird (1988)_ (qv), for which Whitaker won the Cannes Film Festival award for "best actor" and a Golden Globe nomination. Whitaker continued to work with a number of well-known directors throughout the 1990s. While his "gentle giant" characters typically display innocence, indecision, and timidity along with a strong underlying humanity, he has certainly not shied away from the edgier, darker corners of life as his occasional hitmen and other menacing streetwise types can attest. Although in only the first section of the film, he was memorable as the IRA-captured British soldier whose bizarre relationship with a mysterious femme fatale serves as the catalyst for the critically-lauded drama _The Crying Game (1992)_ (qv). Always a willing participant to push the envelope, he's gone on to enhance a number of lesser films. Among those was his plastic surgeon in _Johnny Handsome (1989)_ (qv), gay clothing designer in 'Robert Altman (I)' (qv)'s _Pręt-ŕ-Porter (1994)_ (qv), alien hunter in _Species (1995)_ (qv), absentee father confronted by his estranged son in _Smoke (1995)_ (qv), and Mafia hitman who models himself after the samurai warrior in _Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999)_ (qv), among many others. As would be expected, he's also had his share of epic-sized bombs, notoriously the 'L. Ron Hubbard' (qv) sci-fi disaster _Battlefield Earth (2000)_ (qv). On the TV front, he was the consulting producer and host of a revamped 'Rod Serling' (qv)'s cult series classic _"The Twilight Zone" (2002)_ (qv), which lasted a disappointing one season. In the early 1990s, Whitaker widened his horizons to include producing/directing and has since gained respect behind the camera as well. He started things off co-producing the violent gangster film _A Rage in Harlem (1991)_ (qv), in which he co-starred with 'Gregory Hines (I)' (qv) and 'Robin Givens' (qv), and then made his successful directorial debut with the soulful _Waiting to Exhale (1995)_ (qv), showcasing a legion of distaff black stars. He also directed co-star 'Whitney Houston (I)' (qv)'s music video of the movie's theme song ("Shoop Shoop"). He also helmed the fluffy romantic comedy _First Daughter (2004)_ (qv) with 'Katie Holmes (I)' (qv) and 'Michael Keaton' (qv). Whitaker also served as an executive producer on First Daughter. He had previously executive produced several made-for-television movies, most notably the 2002 Emmy-award winning Door to Door, starring 'William H. Macy' (qv). He produced these projects through his production company, Spirit Dance Entertainment, which he shut down in 2005 to concentrate on his acting career. In 2002, he co-starred in Joel Schumacher's thriller, Phone Booth, with Kiefer Sutherland and Colin Farrell. That year, he also co-starred with Jodie Foster in Panic Room. Whitaker's greatest success to date is the 2006 film, The Last King of Scotland. His performance earned him the 2007 Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, For that same role, he also received the Golden Globe Award, the Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA Award, and many critical accolades. He has also received several other honors. In September 2006, the 10th Annual Hollywood Film Festival presented him with its "Hollywood Actor of the Year Award," He was also honored at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 2007, receiving the American Riviera Award. Previously, in 2005, the Deauville Festival of American Film paid tribute to him. In 2007, Forest Whitaker won the Cinema for Peace Award 2007. In 2007, Whitaker co-starred in The Great Debaters with fellow Oscar winner 'Denzel Washington' (qv), and in 2008, Whitaker played opposite 'Keanu Reeves' (qv) in Street Kings and 'Dennis Quaid' (qv) in Vantage Point. In 2009, Forest co-starred in the Warner Bros. film "Where the Wild Things Are," directed by Spike Jonze, which was a mix of live-action, animation and puppetry as an adaptation of the Maurice Sendak classic children's book. Around the same time, he also starred in "Repossession Mambo", with Jude Law, "Hurricane Season", "Winged Creatures", and "Powder Blue". He appeared in the Olivier Dahan film "My Own Love Song", opposite Renee Zellweger, and was part of the Africa Movie Academy Awards in 2009, in Nigeria. He is married to former model 'Keisha Whitaker' (qv) and has three children by her. His younger brothers 'Kenn Whitaker' (qv) and 'Damon Whitaker' (qv) are both actors as well. Forest was given a star on the Hollywood Walk in April of 2007. In November 2007, Whitaker was the creative mind behind DEWmocracy.com, a website that let people decide the next flavor of Mountain Dew in a "People's Dew" poll. He directed a short film and created the characters for the video game. Whitaker has done extensive humanitarian work, he has been involved with organizations like, Penny Lane, an organization that provides assistance to abused teenagers. PETA and Farm Sanctuary, organizations that protect animals' rights. Close friends with Neurosurgeon Dr. Keith Black, Forest has helped raise awareness and funds for Dr. Blacks research. During the last couple of years, he has become a spokesperson for Hope North Ugandan orphanage and Human Rights Watch. In the year 2001 Forest received a Humanitas Prize. He was recently honored by The City of Los Angeles with the Hope of Los Angeles Award. And his entire clan received the LA BEST Family Focus Award. Last year he joined forces with "Idol Gives Back" and "Malaria No More"; he has become a GQ Ambassador supporting and fundraising for Hope North. He was a Surrogate for Barrack Obama's campaign supporting him across the United States. Whitaker's multimedia company, Spirit Dance Entertainment, includes film, television and music production. He works closely with a number of charitable organizations, giving back to his community by serving as an Honorary Board Members for Penny Lane, an organization that provides assistance to abused teenagers, the Human Rights Watch and The Hope North organization.
Jared Joseph Leto (Bossier, Louisiana, USA, 1971. december 26.) Oscar-díjas amerikai színész, zenész. A Thirty Seconds to Mars amerikai rockegyüttes énekese, gitárosa és dalszerzője. Jordan Catalano a My So-Called Life mélabús szívtiprójaként vált ismertté. Olyan filmekben szerepelt, mint a Rekviem egy álomért, Pánikszoba, Nagy Sándor, a hódító, Fegyvernepper, Chapter 27 és Mr. Nobody. 2014-ben Oscar-díjat nyert a Mielőtt meghaltam című filmben nyújtott alakításáért.
In the vein of musicians-turned-actors, Jared Leto is a very familiar face in recent film history. Although he has always been the lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and songwriter for American band '30 Seconds to Mars' (qv), Leto will always be remembered as an accomplished actor for the numerous, challenging projects he has taken in his life. Jared Leto was born in Bossier City, Louisiana, to Constance "Connie" (Metrejon) and Anthony L. "Tony" Bryant. "Leto" is a stepfather's surname. His ancestry includes English, Cajun (French), as well as Irish, German, Scottish. Jared and his family traveled across the United States throughout Leto's childhood, living in such states as Wyoming, Virginia and Colorado. Leto would continue this trend when he initially dropped a study of painting at Philadelphia's University of the Arts in favor of a focus on acting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. In 1992, Leto moved to Los Angeles to pursue a musical career, intending to take acting roles on the side. Leto's first appearances on screen were guest appearances on the short-lived television shows _"Camp Wilder" (1992)_ (qv), _"Almost Home" (1993)_ (qv) and _"Rebel Highway" (1994)_ (qv). However, his next role would change everything for Leto. While searching for film roles, he was cast in the show, _"My So-Called Life" (1994)_ (qv) (TV Series 1994-1995). Leto's character was "Jordan Catalano", the handsome, dyslexic slacker, but also the main love interest of "Angela" (played by 'Claire Danes' (qv)). Leto contributed to the soundtrack of the film, and so impressed the producers initially that he was soon a regular on the show until its end. Elsewhere, Leto began taking film roles. His first theatrically released film was the ensemble piece, _How to Make an American Quilt (1995)_ (qv), based on a novel of the same name and starring renowned actresses 'Winona Ryder' (qv), 'Anne Bancroft (I)' (qv), 'Ellen Burstyn' (qv), 'Jean Simmons (I)' (qv) and 'Alfre Woodard' (qv). The film was a modest success and, while Leto's next film, _The Last of the High Kings (1996)_ (qv), was a failure, Leto secured his first leading role in _Prefontaine (1997)_ (qv), based on long-distance runner Steven Prefontaine. The film was a financial flop, but was praised by critics, notably 'Gene Siskel' (qv) and 'Roger Ebert' (qv). He also took a supporting role in the action thriller, _Switchback (1997)_ (qv), which starred 'Dennis Quaid' (qv), but the film was another failure. Leto's work was slowly becoming recognized in Hollywood, and he continued to find work in film. In 1998, everything turned for the better on all fronts. This was the year that Leto founded the band, '30 Seconds to Mars' (qv), with his brother, 'Shannon Leto' (qv), as well as 'Matt Wachter' (qv) (who later left the group), and after two guitarists joined and quit, 'Tomo Milicevic' (qv) was brought in as lead guitarist and keyboardist. As well as the formation of his now-famous band, Leto's luck in film was suddenly shooting for the better. He was cast as the lead in the horror film, _Urban Legend (1998)_ (qv), which told a grisly tale of a murderer who kills his victims in the style of urban legends. The film was a massive success commercially, though critics mostly disliked the film. That same year, Leto also landed a supporting role in the film, _The Thin Red Line (1998)_ (qv). Renowned director 'Terrence Malick' (qv)'s first film in nearly twenty years, the film had dozens of famous actors in the cast, including 'Sean Penn (I)' (qv), 'Woody Harrelson' (qv), 'John Travolta (I)' (qv), 'Nick Nolte' (qv) and 'Elias Koteas (I)' (qv), to name a few. The film went through much editing, leaving several actors out of the final version, but Leto luckily remained in the film. _The Thin Red Line (1998)_ (qv) was nominated for seven Oscars and was a moderate success at the box office. Leto's fame had just begun. He had supporting roles in both 'James Mangold' (qv)'s _Girl, Interrupted (1999)_ (qv), and in 'David Fincher' (qv)'s cult classic, _Fight Club (1999)_ (qv), dealing with masculinity, commercialism, fascism and insomnia. While 'Edward Norton (I)' (qv) and 'Brad Pitt' (qv) were the lead roles, Leto took a supporting role and dyed his hair blond. The film remains hailed by many, but at the time, Leto was already pushing himself further into controversial films. He played a supporting role of "Paul Allen" in the infamous _American Psycho (2000)_ (qv), starring 'Christian Bale' (qv), and he played the lead role in 'Darren Aronofsky' (qv)'s _Requiem for a Dream (2000)_ (qv), which had Leto take grueling measures to prepare for his role as a heroin addict trying to put his plans to reality and escape the hell he is in. Both films were massive successes, if controversially received. The 2000s brought up new film opportunities for Leto. He reunited with 'David Fincher' (qv) in _Panic Room (2002)_ (qv), which was another success for Leto, as well as 'Oliver Stone (I)' (qv)'s epic passion project, _Alexander (2004)_ (qv). The theatrical cut was poorly received domestically (although it recouped its budget through DVD sales and international profit), and though a Final Cut was released that much improved the film in all aspects, it continues to be frowned upon by the majority of film goers. Leto rebounded with _Lord of War (2005)_ (qv), which starred 'Nicolas Cage' (qv) as an arms dealer who ships weapons to war zones, with Leto playing his hapless but more moral-minded brother. The film was an astounding look at the arms industry, but was not a big financial success. Leto's flush of successes suddenly ran dry when he acted in the period piece, _Lonely Hearts (2006)_ (qv), which had Leto playing "Ray Fernandez", one of the two infamous "Lonely Hearts Killers" in the 1940s. The film was a financial failure and only received mixed responses. Leto then underwent a massive weight gain to play "Mark David Chapman", infamous murderer of 'John Lennon (I)' (qv), in the movie, _Chapter 27 (2007)_ (qv). While Leto did a fantastic job embodying the behavior and speech patterns of Chapman, the film was a complete flop, and was a critical bomb to boot. It was during this period that Leto focused increasingly on his band, turning down such films as 'Clint Eastwood (I)' (qv)'s World War 2 film, _Flags of Our Fathers (2006)_ (qv). In 2009, however, Leto returned to acting with his most ambitious film yet; _Mr. Nobody (2009)_ (qv). Leto's role as "Nemo Nobody" required him to play the character as far aged as 118, even as he undergoes a soul-searching as to whether his life turned out the way he wanted it to. The film was mostly funded through Belgian and French financiers, and was given limited release in only certain countries. Critical response, however, has praised the film's artistry and Leto's acting. Jared Leto's story is a very charmed one, as he rose from television roles to film roles, to giving head-turning performances in famous projects alongside A-list casts. And all this on the side of his band, '30 Seconds to Mars' (qv).
Alicia Christian „Jodie” Foster (Los Angeles, 1962. november 19. –) kétszeres Oscar- és Golden Globe-díjas amerikai színésznő, filmrendező. Szülei Lucius Foster és Evelyn Almond. Középiskolai éveit egy igen exkluzív iskolában (Lycée Français de Los Angeles) töltötte, majd onnan a Yale Egyetemre került, ahol summa cum laude diplomázott angol irodalomból 1985-ben. Már 1965-ben feltűnt a reklámokban, majd később szórakoztató sorozatokban is. 1969-ben debütált a Mayberry R.F.D. című filmben. 1970 óta több mint 50 filmben vagy tévéjátékban szerepelt. 1972-ben kapta meg első főszerepét a Napóleon és Samantha című filmben. 1975-ben forgatott első alkalommal Martin Scorsese-val az Alice már nem lakik itt címűt. 1976-ban Oscar-díjra jelölték a Taxisofőr című filmben nyújtott alakításáért. John Hinckley azt állította, hogy a Taxisofőrben látott Jodie Foster figyelmét szerette volna felkelteni tettével, amikor rálőtt Ronald Reagan amerikai elnökre. 1988-ban és 1991-ben is Oscar-díjat kapott (A vádlottak; A bárányok hallgatnak). 1992-ben Woody Allennel is együtt dolgozott az Árnyak és köd című filmben. 1994-ben Liam Neeson és Natasha Richardson mellett ő is főszereplője volt a Nell, a remetelány című filmnek. A következő nagy filmes szerepe a Kapcsolat volt, ahol Matthew McConaughey volt a partnere. A 2000-es évek elején a Pánikszoba című filmben tűnt fel Kristen Stewart, Forest Whitaker és Jared Leto színészek mellett. 2006-ban Denzel Washington és Clive Owen partnere volt A belső ember című filmben.
Alicia Christian Foster was born in Los Angeles on November 19, 1962. She is the daughter of Evelyn Ella "Brandy" (Almond) and Lucius Fisher Foster III, an Air Force lieutenant colonel and later real estate broker. Her parents were divorced in August 1959, three years before she was born. Alicia's siblings nicknamed her "Jodie," a name she has used in her profession. When she was just three years old, Jodie began acting in commercials, most notably for Coppertone sunblock. When she was five, Jodie landed her first acting role on the TV show _"Mayberry R.F.D." (1968)_ (qv). She stayed very busy as a child actress, working on television programs such as _"The Doris Day Show" (1968)_ (qv), _"Adam-12" (1968)_ (qv), _"The Courtship of Eddie's Father" (1969)_ (qv), _"The Partridge Family" (1970)_ (qv), _"Bonanza" (1959)_ (qv), and _"Gunsmoke" (1955)_ (qv). In movies, her roles included playing 'Raquel Welch' (qv)'s daughter in _Kansas City Bomber (1972)_ (qv) and a delinquent tomboy in _Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)_ (qv). Jodie first drew attention from critics with her appearance in _Taxi Driver (1976)_ (qv), in which she played a prostitute at the tender age of 12 (she was 13 when the movie premiered) and received her first Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actress. She went on to have a very successful career in her early teens with leading roles in the Disney films _Freaky Friday (1976)_ (qv) and _Candleshoe (1977)_ (qv). The last film Jodie made during this era was the coming-of-age drama _Foxes (1980)_ (qv), before enrolling at Yale University. Tragedy struck Jodie during her Freshman year when a crazed and obsessed fan named 'John Hinckley (I)' (qv) shot President 'Ronald Reagan (I)' (qv) to impress her. Jodie graduated from Yale in 1985 with a degree in literature. Her main priority was now to become a successful adult actress. After appearing in a few obscure B-movies, Jodie auditioned for _The Accused (1988)_ (qv) and was cast Sarah Tobias, a waitress who is gang-raped in a bar after a night of partying. For this role she won her first Academy Award as Best Actress. But even though she had won an Oscar, Jodie still hadn't established herself as a bankable star. Her next film, _Catchfire (1990)_ (qv), went straight to video, and she had to fight hard to get her next good role. In 1991 she starred as Clarice Starling, an FBI trainee hunting down a serial killer in _The Silence of the Lambs (1991)_ (qv). The film was a blockbuster hit, winning Jodie her second Academy Award for Best Actress and establishing her as an international star at the age of 28. With the wealth and fame to do anything she wanted, Jodie turned to directing. She made her directorial debut with _Little Man Tate (1991)_ (qv), which was followed by _Home for the Holidays (1995)_ (qv). These movies were critically acclaimed but did not do well at the box office, and Jodie proved to be a far more successful actress than she was a director. 1994 proved to be a huge triumph for Jodie's acting career. She first played a sexy con artist in the successful western spoof _Maverick (1994)_ (qv) with 'Mel Gibson (I)' (qv). Then, she played title role in _Nell (1994)_ (qv) alongside 'Liam Neeson' (qv) and 'Natasha Richardson' (qv). For her compelling performance as a wild, backwoods hermit who speaks an invented language and must return to civilization, Jodie was nominated for another Academy Award and won a Screen Actors Guild Award as Best Actress. Although Jodie was working far less frequently as an adult than she did as a child, the films she turned out were commercially successful and critically acclaimed. Her next big screen role was in the science fiction drama _Contact (1997)_ (qv) opposite 'Matthew McConaughey' (qv). She played a scientist who receives signals from space aliens. The film was a huge hit and brought Jodie a Golden Globe nomination. She starred in the non-musical remake of _The King and I (1956)_ (qv) entitled _Anna and the King (1999)_ (qv), which was only modestly received in the U.S. but was very successful overseas. Three years after that she headlined the thriller _Panic Room (2002)_ (qv). The film was a smash box-office hit and gave Jodie a $30 million opening weekend, the biggest of her career yet. She then appeared in two low-profile projects: the independent film _The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002)_ (qv) and the foreign film _Un long dimanche de fiançailles (2004)_ (qv). She returned to making Hollywood mainstream films, first with _Flightplan (2005)_ (qv), in which she played a woman whose daughter disappears on an airplane that she designed. Once again Jodie proved herself to be a box-office draw, and the film was a worldwide hit. The following year she starred in another hit, a thriller about a bank heist titled _Inside Man (2006)_ (qv) with 'Denzel Washington' (qv) and 'Clive Owen (I)' (qv). Jodie seemed to be on a pattern of non-stop success. She was paid $15 million for her next film, the revenge thriller _The Brave One (2007)_ (qv), which once again opened at #1 at the box office and earned her another Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress. Following this succession of dark thrillers, Jodie returned to the comedy genre in _Nim's Island (2008)_ (qv) with 'Gerard Butler' (qv) and 'Abigail Breslin (I)' (qv). Jodie will reunite with Mel Gibson in the upcoming movie _The Beaver (2011)_ (qv), which is scheduled for general release in 2011. Having spent nearly her entire life in the spotlight, Jodie Foster has had one of the most substantial film careers in Hollywood history. She is one of the most respected and highest-paid actresses working today, and there is no doubt that there will be many great things ahead for this child actress turned two-time Oscar-winning superstar.
Kristen Jaymes Stewart (Los Angeles, 1990. április 9. –) amerikai színésznő. Los Angelesben született, de kiskorában Coloradóban élt és csak később költözött vissza Los Angelesbe. Jelenleg szüleivel és bátyjával, Cameronnal is ott él. Az ismertséget a Pánikszoba című film hozta meg neki, melyben Jodie Foster lányát játszotta – ezt a szerepet Hayden Panettiere is szerette volna megkapni. Három egymást követő évben is jelölték a Young Artist Awards-ra – 2003-ban a Pánikszoba, 2003-ban a Jéghideg otthon (Cold Creek Manor) és 2005-ben az Undertown című filmekben nyújtott alakításáért.

Though most famous for her role as Isabella "Bella" Swan in The _Twilight (2008/I)_ (qv) Saga, Kristen Stewart has been a working actor since her early years in Los Angeles, California. Her parents, 'John Stewart (IV)' (qv) and 'Jules Stewart (II)' (qv), both work in film and television. Her mother is Australian. The family includes three boys, her older brother 'Cameron Stewart (VI)' (qv) and two adopted brothers Dana and Taylor. After a talent scout caught her grade school performance in a Christmas play at the age of eight, she appeared on television in a few small roles. Her first significant role came when she was cast as Sam Jennings in _The Safety of Objects (2001)_ (qv). Soon after that, she starred alongside 'Jodie Foster' (qv) in the hit drama, _Panic Room (2002)_ (qv) and was nominated for a Young Artist Award. Praised for her Panic Room performance, she went on to join the cast of _Cold Creek Manor (2003)_ (qv) as the daughter of 'Dennis Quaid' (qv) and 'Sharon Stone (I)' (qv). Though the film did not do well at the box office, she received another nomination for a Young Artist Award. After appearing in a handful of movies and a Showtime movie called _Speak (2004)_ (qv), Stewart was cast in the role of a teenage singer living in a commune in 'Sean Penn (I)' (qv)'s _Into the Wild (2007)_ (qv), a critically acclaimed biopic. A third Young Artist Award nomination resulted in a win for this role. She also appeared in 'Mary Stuart Masterson' (qv)'s _The Cake Eaters (2007)_ (qv) that same year. Just 17, Stewart took on the starring role in _Twilight (2008/I)_ (qv) which was based on a series of the same name written by 'Stephenie Meyer' (qv), the novel already had a huge following and the film opened to fans anxious to see the vampire romance brought to life. Awarded the MTV Movie Award for Best Female Performance, Stewart's turn as Bella continued in the sequels _The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)_ (qv) and _The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)_ (qv). The final installments of the series start filming in late 2010.
