Venice director Alberto Barbera and Biennale president Paolo Baratta announced the line-up this morning.

The strand will also feature Martin Scorsese’s The Audition, a 16-minute short film – with a reported $70m budget – promoting the opening of Melco-Crown’s movie-themed resort and casino in Macau, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Robert de Niro.

LOS ANGELES — Brad Pitt and Bill Maher say Costco contributes to animal cruelty by selling eggs from caged hens.

Pitt sent a letter to the chief executive of the big-box chain Thursday asking the company to stop selling eggs produced this way. Pitt’s letter to Craig Jelinek says caged birds suffer atrophy of their muscles and bones from years of immobility, adding that the cages have been banned in California and much of Europe.

“As you know, these birds producing eggs for your shelves are crammed five or more into cages that are not large enough for even one hen to spread her wings,” Pitt writes.

Maher took aim at the company in an editorial published last week by The New York Times.

“Multiple investigations into battery cages document animals with deteriorated spinal cords, some who have become paralyzed and then mummified in their cages,” Maher wrote. “Imagine cramming five cats or dogs into tiny cages, hundreds of thousands in each shed, for their entire lives. That would warrant cruelty charges, of course. But when the egg industry does it to hens, it’s considered business as usual.”

Both commended Costco for its other animal-welfare efforts and called on the company to make good on its 2007 promise to move toward uncaging its egg-laying hens.

Pitt and Maher each spoke out on behalf of Farm Sanctuary, an organization that advocates against the mistreatment of animals and factory farming.

There’s only one possible opening line for this article, so we’re just going to go for it: Hollywood royalty met British royalty on Friday when Angelina Jolie Pitt and husband Brad Pitt had tea with Prince William and Princess Kate at Kensington Palace on Friday.

In case the news is too good to believe, it was confirmed to Us Weekly by a Kensington Palace spokesman: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt at Kensington Palace on Friday afternoon.”

What would two of the most famous couples in the world talk about over tea? Saving the world, of course. “They discussed their shared interest in combatting the illegal wildlife trade,” the Kensington Palace spokesman said.

While the families also share a love of children, it was an adults-only tea party. While the Jolie-Pitts did get to meet Prince George outside the royal family’s apartment—and brought a belated birthday present for Princess Charlotte— both royal children missed their chance for a selfie with the famous actors (and all six Jolie-Pitt children missed their chance for royal portraits).

This was the first time that the two couples had met, but according to Us Weekly’s anonymous palace source, “Everyone got on splendidly.” So much so that “Brad and Angelina spent much longer with the Duke and Duchess than planned. They ended up staying for almost a few hours.”

Pitt and Jolie had brought their family to London for a luncheon at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as part of Jolie’s work on U.K. foreign policy and her ongoing efforts to end sexual violence in war zones.

Wytches is a creator-owned horror series Snyder began alongside the mononymous artist Jock last year for indie publisher Image Comics, and its first volume comes out in a collected edition this week. It follows the travails of the Rooks, a family struggling with alcohol abuse, disability, and — in the case of their daughter, Sailor — crippling anxiety issues. They move to a small town and stumble upon the town’s history with tall, grotesque, forest-dwelling creatures called wytches (the y being crucial — it turns out that witches are merely humans who have involved themselves with wytches, though I won’t spoil the details).

So, I know there’s only so much you can say about this, but Wytches got picked up by Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B, for a movie adaptation. What’s the status there?
The film version seems to be going along great. Plan B has been really wonderful to us, sort of giving us a window into that process and putting us in touch with the screenwriter, who’s just finished his first draft. He was actually just in South America and he was going hiking, and he found this series of underground caverns and sent us pictures, me and Jock. And he was like, “I found a [wytch] burrow!” I love the version that they’re making, which cuts pretty close to ours with a few small differences.

It’s a special mother-daughter trip for Angelina Jolie Pitt and 9-year-old Shiloh. The mom of six brought her daughter to Lebanon on Friday to spend time with a 12-year-old Syrian girl named Hala, whom Angelina met a year ago during a trip for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

“Shiloh is very aware that I hold refugee families in high regard and has been asking to come on missions and meet them for many years,” Jolie Pitt tells PEOPLE. “She had heard about Hala since my last visit to Lebanon, and has been wanting to meet her and her brothers and sisters.”

She continues, “It was wonderful that they were able to meet, play together, and make friends. So many refugees are children. I’ve often heard them say that the most painful thing is not that they have lost their homes – it is that they have lost their friends.”
