Zoe Kravitz Diverges Into the Family Business



Zoe Kravitz is definitely following in her famous parents footsteps.

The daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet has landed a string of film roles, including the action adventure flick Divergent, and is embarking on a music career.

HipHollywood sat down with the 25-year old, during the junket for the Veronica Roth film, to dish about landing the role opposite Shailene Woodley and Theo James.

“I’m still in shock,” admits Kravitz. “My agents and I thought I’d do a lot of theater and it hasn’t been that at all. It’s been X-men and Mad Max and this, it’s like a weird joke. I’m still waiting for Ashton Kutcher to come and tell me I’ve been punked.”

And speaking of punk, Kravitz recently released an EP with her band LolaWolf that she says was inspired by the 80s, and summertime in Los Angeles and New York. Check it out!

Divergent is in theaters March 21.


What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
