You'll also find what you need to know about upcoming concerts in Minnesota, from Beyonce and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, to Alice Cooper and Kenny Chesney; as well as major touring theater productions like "The Book of Mormon."

Also here, you'll find the latest on Minnesota's renewed efforts to bring more film productions back to the state, recent productions and what's in the works; and get the scoop on which celebrities are planning appearances in the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.

In addition, BringMeTheNews Entertainment & Arts will feature original interviews, in which Hollywood's A-list celebrities share their Minnesota stories with Lammers, like Oscar winner Helen Mirren recalling the story of how she got drunk – and got a tattoo – in northern Minnesota; about Kevin James and his desire to make "Mall Cop 2" at the Mall of America; and Oscar winner Emma Thompson praising the state for its cultural diversity.

Other original content includes Lammers' weekly movie reviews.

You will also find Q & A's with stars of upcoming films in theaters and home video. This week, Lammers interviewed James Franco, the star of "Oz the Great and Powerful," and next week, expect interviews with "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" stars Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi.
