Stand Up To Cancer Celebrity Ambassadors Aziz Ansari, Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Jaime King, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg and Emma Stone – along with Star Wars alum Samuel L. Jackson – each Use the Force for Good as they recreate classic Star Wars scenes to raise awareness for cancer research.
Emma Stone knows how to make the whole “geek chic” look work. Rather than make a minimal effort and just wear a nerdy T-shirt like Megan Fox, Emma really commits: In the new campaign for Stand Up 2 Cancer, she wears Yoda on her chest and Princess Leia buns on her head.
(Who else thought “Emma Stone dresses up as Princess Leia” meant that she’d be rocking the Slave Leia look? Perhaps a small disappointment for some of you, but then again, you’d be too distracted to hear the message about cancer.)
The Star Wars T-shirts are part of a new promotion meant to raise awareness about SU2C and coincide with the release of the Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray. SU2C’s done two telethons — the one in 2008 featured Patrick Swayze before his death — but it looks as if they’re smartly extending their reach to the Internet.

Emma Stone insists she’s no no Pretty Woman.
The Easy A and Spiderman star is the hottest young actress in Hollywood right now with some dubbing the 22-year-old as the new Julia Roberts. But Emma is having none of it.
“Julia Roberts is still around so that’s horrible thing to say,” insists Emma.
“Julia Roberts is the new Julia Roberts. She’s awesome. That’s really flattering but I think people who say these things are nuts.”
Emma recently revealed she is over her crush on Leonardo DiCaprio after finally meeting him.
“I had a huge crush on Leonardo DiCaprio in his Titanic and Romeo + Juliet time,” she said.
“I really thought it was so cool. Then as time goes on and you get a little closer to those people or you meet those people, you go, ‘Oh everyone is completely normal all the time and every human being is exactly alike.’ Now, everything feels different.”
The maids of “The Help” didn’t take the Labor Day weekend off. The surprise summer hit held firm at the top of the domestic box office for the third straight week with $19 million in ticket sales.
The drama about white women and their black maids in Civil Rights-era Mississippi polished off three new films based on four-day estimates released by movie studios on Monday, the U.S. Labor Day holiday that ended a record summer at U.S. and Canadian theaters. “The Help,” a critics favorite that debuted a month ago in the No. 2 spot, was produced by DreamWorks and distributed by Walt Disney Co.
Newcomers including two horror flicks generated modest sales on a weekend traditionally slow for movie-going.
Spy thriller “The Debt,” starring Helen Mirren, took second place with a better-than-expected $12.6 million in the North American (U.S. and Canadian) market. The film tells the story of the hunt for a Nazi war criminal and how the mission haunts a trio of secret agents three decades later. The film drew an older audience with 70 percent of moviegoers over age 40, distributor Focus Features said.
The studio released the movie on Wednesday, and estimated domestic sales since it debuted reached $14.5 million.
Space mystery “Apollo 18,” a new release that purports to use “found footage” of an ill-fated trip to the moon, came in third for the weekend with $10.7 million. That fell within studio projections for a film that cost less than $5 million to make, said Erik Lomis, president of distribution for The Weinstein Co, which released the film.
Following behind at No. 4 was new thriller “Shark Night (3-D),” a tale of nightmarish fresh-water shark attacks at a Louisiana lake house, with $10.3 million, at the higher end of industry expectations. Aimed at teens, the film drew 57 percent of its audience from an under-25 crowd.
Sci-fi flick “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” stayed strong, rounding out the top five with $10.3 million during its fifth weekend in theaters.
“Apes,” a revival of the classic tale of chimps launching a revolution, and “The Help” stood out as two surprise summer hits. “Apes” has rung up $162.5 million in domestic sales and $186.5 million in international markets, for a combined total of $349 million.
“The Help” has pulled in about $123.4 million since it hit U.S. and Canadian theaters, exceeding forecasts from box-office watchers. The film is an adaptation of a best-selling novel by Kathryn Stockett.
The two movies helped Hollywood rack up record sales for the four-month summer season measured from early May through Labor Day, when studios bring in as much as 40 percent of annual revenue. Domestic totals hit an estimated $4.4 billion for the period, a 0.7 percent increase from last year, according to figures from Hollywood.com Box Office.
The revenue gain was helped by slightly higher average ticket prices as movie attendance fell 1.4 percent.
“Though attendance figures are down, the performance is still impressive given the intense competition” for audiences posed by a range of entertainment options, said Paul Dergarabedian, head of Hollywood.com Box Office.
Summer hits included big sequels such as “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2″ and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” plus superhero tales such as “Captain America: The First Avenger” and family film “The Smurfs.” Adult comedies, including “Bridesmaids” and “The Hangover 2″ also scored with audiences.
“The Debt” was released by Focus Features, a unit of Comcast Corp’s Universal Pictures. Privately held Weinstein Co released “Apollo 18.” Closely held Relativity Media released “Shark Night (3-D)” in the United States and eOne distributed the film in Canada.
“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” was released by 20th Century Fox, the film studio of News Corp.
The Help star Emma Stone has said that the film has been a surprise hit because audiences can really identify with the characters.
The movie, adapted from Kathryn Stockett’s novel about African American maids during the early sixties, is currently top of the US box office and has taken a domestic total of $100m since its release.
“It’s human,” Stone told The Hollywood Reporter, following the film’s French premiere on Friday.
“Everyone wants to talk about the race issues, feminism and the themes the movie touches on,” she explained. “But even more than that, it’s the story of three woman who come together in an unlikely way to create positive change.
“Everyone has the ability to be extraordinary. It’s about ordinary people brave enough to want to be extraordinary.”
Stone recently said that she chose to star in The Help in an effort to move towards more mature film projects.
