It’s New Year’s Eve on the Poseidon. Partying voyagers toast the future. The future comes in a rush: a 150-foot rogue wave flips the cruise ship over…and a struggle to survive begins. Director Wolfgang Petersen (The Perfect Storm) returns to the sea with a thrill-packed, cutting-edge screen adaptation of Paul Gallico’s novel The Poseidon Adventure. Josh Lucas, Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfuss, Emmy Rossum and more play passengers who must rely on each other as they seek safety through the water, flames and wreckage of an upside-down world.
On April 08, Emmy attended the 7th Annual New Yorkers for Children Spring Dinner Dance at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City. One day later, Emmy was seen walking her dog Cinnamon in New York City. Previews below:

Emmy Rossum is looking lovely at the premiere of Red on Broadway on Thursday (April 01) in New York City. The 23-year-old actress checked out the new Broadway play, which tells the story of a master expressionist who works furiously with his assistant to prepare a series of murals that could mean the biggest commission in the history of art. Red runs through June 27! Pick up tickets at Telecharge.com. Source: JustJared

Emmy Rossum confirmed she is still going strong with Counting Crows rocker Adam Duritz during the grand opening of Espirit’s flagship store in NYC on March 23. The May-December couple have been dating since September — one month after Emmy split from secret husband Justin Siegel. Of their relationship, the Phantom of the Opera star says “I’m very happy. He’s too special.” Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox Arquette and Mary-Louise Parker would agree, considering they were also wooed by the dreadlocked 45-year-old musician. Emmy, who was wearing Espirit, looked amazing.
What’s her secret? “Try to sleep a lot,” she tells. “I know everyone says that, but it’s really true. And exercise. It raises your endorphin level and makes you happy. It’s something you can do for yourself to clear your head. Hopefully you’re not looking at your cell phone during your class or when you’re on the treadmill, and you can zone out with your music and relax.”
How much sleep does Emmy typically get? “Last night it was three because I was on a plane and curled up in a very awkward position, but usually it’s eight,” she says. “I’m a pretty solid sleeper.”
