6/3/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-san-andreas-survivor-packs-earthquakes-01"San Andreas" is a disaster movie of epic proportions and has turned into a godsend for an earthquake preparedness company.

The blockbuster flick has freaked out hordes of moviegoers ... good news for EarthquakeStore.com, which has seen a 300% spike in disaster kit sales.

Among the bestsellers:

-- Quake Alarm – a $34.95 glorified fire detector that picks up a quake's sound wave before the main shock.

-- Deluxe Emergency Preparedness Kit – For $250, you get a duffel bag for two which includes - sleeping bags, emergency food bars, orange safety vests, a folding hand saw, candles, fire starter sticks, water purification kit …and everything else you'd pack for a weekend camping trip.

The company raked in $100,000 off the kits in the past two weeks alone.

Better hurry. They say the first 24-72 hours following a disaster are crucial ... and everyone knows ... the BIG ONE is coming!!!

Jackie Chan

Who's Ronda Rousey!?

6/2/2015 8:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

He's a martial arts expert ... but Jackie Chan says he's NEVER heard of MMA superstar Ronda Rousey

Weird, considering Chan is also an action film buff ... and Ronda's been blowing up with roles in "The Expendables 3" and "Furious 7."

In fact, when Chan was cruisin' through Beverly Hills yesterday -- he told us he's still making MORE action flicks ... including "Rush Hour 4" -- and was having dinner with Chris Tucker to talk about the project. 

No word on when that movie is supposed to come out ... but if Jackie needs a strong female character -- at least he knows who to call. 

Paul George

Forget Lebron

... I Want To Be In 'Space Jam 2'

EXCLUSIVE

Steph Curry isn't the only NBA superstar taking on LeBron this week ... 'cause Paul George tells TMZ Sports that he might wanna slide into "Space Jam 2" even though it's a role that was fit for the King.

George was out in L.A. recently when we asked about his favorite basketball movies ... and whether or not he'd ever want to step onto the silver screen.

Check out the clip -- George says the one film that might get him to flex his acting skills is "Space Jam 2" --  a flick that's been rumored to be in development for a couple of years now, with LeBron supposedly in the lead role. 

There's more movie talk -- George also tells us the one basketball movie that absolutely DOESN'T need a sequel. Sorry Whoopi Goldberg ...

Sarah Michelle & Selma

Awesome Intentions!!

Sucking Face While Reese Watches

5/29/2015 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0528-reese-witherspoon-selma-blair-instagramSarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair recreated their epic "Cruel Intentions" make out scene last night -- and it was just as epic ... 16 years later.

Reese Witherspoon made it a full reunion -- but she kept her tongue in her mouth -- as the former co-stars went to a musical parody of  "Cruel Intentions" that plays in Hollywood.

The ladies seemed to have a great time ... Reese even called it her "best girl night of the year.”

It gets our vote too, Reese ... based on the kiss alone.

EXCLUSIVE

0528-reynaldo-rey-tmz-01Reynaldo Rey, longtime comedian and character actor, died early Thursday morning in Los Angeles ... TMZ has learned.

Rey was famous for his movie roles in "Friday," "White Men Can't Jump," and "Harlem Nights." He also appeared in tons of TV shows going back to the 80s ... such as "The Bernie Mac Show," "The Wayans Bros.," "227," and "Sanford."

His manager tells us Rey passed away in a hospital. He suffered a stroke last year ... and started suffering complications in January. He'd checked into the hospital for treatment.

We're told his wife was at his side when he died.

Reynaldo was 75 years old ... and funny as hell as Red's dad in "Friday." R.I.P.

Harrison Ford

Look Up in the Sky, It's Me Flying Again

... Fore!!

5/28/2015 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0528_harrisson_ford_helicopter_PCNAttention golfers in the Santa Monica area ... Harrison Ford is back in the air -- taking off in the cockpit of a chopper. 

Two months after seriously injuring himself in a plane crash ... Ford went back to the Santa Monica Airport and flew shotgun for a helicopter ride on Thursday.

0528_harrisson_ford_walking_PCNHan Solo was looking good as he strolled into the airport, showing no long-term effects from the plane wreck ... which literally went down a few blocks from the chopper launching pad.

Fact is, Ford probably got a birdseye view of the 8th hole of the golf course he tore up that day.

The NTSB hasn't released its investigation results yet -- but initial reports point to some kind of mechanical failure causing the crash.

Godspeed, Harrison.

'Suicide Squad'

Oh Yeah ...

Batman Is Definitely In It!

5/28/2015 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0528-suicide-squad-splashIt wouldn't be a party if Batman wasn't invited, and now it's official ... the Caped Crusader is going to be in "Suicide Squad."

While the Batmobile had previously been spotted on set, Wednesday marked the first time Bruce Wayne's alter ego made an appearance.

Ben Affleck's stunt double was strapped to the roof of a car as Jared Leto's Joker stunt double sat in the driver's seat ... during filming in Toronto.

Also on set -- the actual Margot Robbie. That's her in full Harley Quinn makeup riding shotgun.

2016 cannot come fast enough.

Auntie Fee

I’m Trading In My Knife Set

For A Film Set

5/28/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-auntie-fee-facebook-SWIPE-3Auntie Fee -- best known as Internet sensation Chef Sista Girl -- is taking her low budget recipes and take-no-s**t attitude to the big screen, and there's a Tyler Perry twist.

Auntie just booked her first film role in "Barbershop 3" and is already bringing some flavor to the Atlanta set ... according to a family source. This wasn’t just a friendly favor either ... she actually auditioned to land the gig.

We're told the foul-mouthed chef is playing Anthony Anderson's mother, and her character's name? Madea ... which is kinda perfect since Fee told us Tyler Perry is one of her idols.  

As Fee might put it ... this ain't no f**king one-off! We're told she's already looking to to score more roles. We're thinking less PG and more R -- for language. 

Lindsay Lohan

Mission Accomplished!!!

I Finished My Community Service

5/27/2015 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527_lindsay_lohan_tmzLindsay Lohan just did what nobody thought possible ... she completed her community service, but just in the nick of time.

We just got word from the prosecutor, Chief Deputy Terry White, who confirmed Lindsay put in nearly 8 hours a day for several weeks without a break to get the job done.

Lindsay didn't have any time to spare. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will be in court Thursday with proof that the 125 hours were completed.

So tomorrow marks a new chapter in Lindsay's life ... it will be the first time in nearly 7 years she's off probation.

Amazing.

Jerry Ferrara

Tom Brady Is Finished

As Fantasy Football 1st Rounder

5/27/2015 10:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Ferrara thinks that the Tom Brady era is definitely OVER ... in fantasy football ... telling TMZ Sports Tom Terrific is no longer worthy of a first round fantasy draft pick.

The "Entourage" star (and fantasy nut) was in NYC promoting his other movie "Club Life" when asked if the suspended Brady was still studly enough to command one of the top picks in next year's fantasy drafts.

Jerry's answer is a solid NO ... which isn't surprising because he's a HUGE New York Giants fan ... but slightly controversial because his boss Mark Wahlberg LOVES him some Tom Brady.

Be careful Jerry ... we want to see Turtle return for "Entourage 2."

Jeremy Renner

Low Profile Wedding Crasher

5/27/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-renner-wedding-tmz-01

Jeremy Renner threw on his best t-shirt and sport coat to crash a random couple's wedding in Houston -- and despite his Hollywood A-list status ... he was NOT the center of attention. 

The 'Avengers' star was in H-Town for Comicpalooza when he decided to cruise into the reception at the Regency Hotel, where he was staying over the weekend. Our spies tell us Jeremy was in classic crash form ... hitting up the open bar. 

But we're told he was actually kind of standoffish with most of the guests ... and even refused to take a pic with the bride and groom! Considering Jeremy's just coming off a brief marriage and bitter divorce battle -- it's possible he just didn't want to give 'em bad juju.

But actually, Renner tells TMZ, he was hiding at the bar to avoid upstaging the newlyweds -- but he adds, "I did enjoy conversations with many of the guests for about 15 minutes and went off to enjoy the sights of Houston for the night." 

Instant crash legend. 

Audrey Hepburn

Sons Battle It Out

Over Glittery Clothes and Fancy Hats

5/27/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-audrey-hepburn-GETTY-01Audrey Hepburn's sons are at legal war over her hats, scarves and jewelry.

Audrey left a storage locker full of memorabilia.  Among the items ... posters, costumes, gloves, photos, scripts and awards.  

The "Breakfast at Tiffany's" star gave her 2 sons -- Sean Ferrer from her first marriage and Luca Dotti from her second -- a 50/50 cut in all the items. But she didn't say who got what ... she expected they would divvy it up. Problem is ... they can't agree. 

So the treasure trove is just collecting dust at the Los Angeles Fine Arts & Wine Storage Company, and now a judge has to divide the goodies.

The actor says he was on his way home from a friend's house and regretted his disheveled appearance as he clutched a vodka bottle.

Jonathan just wrapped a movie, "Damascus Cover," where our spies say he delivered a killer performance.  

As for the future, he says, "... this was just a blip in my recovery otherwise I'm living a healthy life."
