Emma Watson continued to shed her buttoned up Hermoine past by showing up to the premiere screening of The Bling Ring at the Cannes Film Festival in a very grown-up gown. The backless number drew cheers as she made her way into the theater alongside director Sofia Coppola. A trio of sparkling ear cuffs served as her (very expensive) bling.
Star Trek is often thought of as being a science fiction franchise about brainy people who generally get along and find themselves involved in complex morality plays, and yeah, it is. However, Star Trek is also full of dark, mysterious, physically commanding and sexy bad guys (and girls).
The geniuses behind Star Trek Into Darkness mashed up clips from the sequel in a new music video set to the hit song “Beam Me Up” by Cazzette. The sequel, starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, has the Internet buzzing in anticipation as it rolls out nationwide this weekend.
VH1 News hit the red–or, uh, dark–carpet for the premiere of Star Trek Into The Darkness and we got to chat with the film’s cast. As we previously reported, Benedict Cumberbatch—who plays the film’s villain, John Harrison—spoke to us about his hit British series, Sherlock, and why we might be seeing it in America sooner rather than later. Cumberbatch also had a few other things to say…specifically about his fans.
Bless you, Michael Bay. The boob- and blast-obsessed Transformers director very publicly fell out with star Megan Fox during the 2009 press tour for Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, which led to Fox getting bumped from the lucrative series in favor of leggy Victoria’s Secret supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitely. However, the two have apparently squashed their beef, and Fox has been cast as reporter April O’Neil in Bay’s upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, currently filming New York. And, Michael Bay being Michael Bay, he made sure to put the voluptuous star in super-tight clothing and made her bounce around on a trampoline on the set. Man Show alums Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla are no doubt beaming with pride.
You know the old adage, “the original is always better?” So not true. Every so often, a truly dazzling remake like The Great Gatsby comes along – and the first version is banished to loserville.
Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most gifted, versatile and successful actors of our time. He’s become king of the (dramatic) world, and he did it despite delivering much of his dialogue in ridiculous accents. That’s talent! We love the guy, but sometimes the dialect is a tad bit distracting. We hope someday his director will stand up to him and scream “JUST READ THE DAMN LINES, LEO!” Thankfully, he seems to have reigned it in for The Great Gatsby, but for old times sake let’s revisit his past vocal travesties!
The Great Gatsby features one of the most iconic pool scenes in entertainment history -and if that’s a spoiler, well then shame on you for not doing your 9th grade English homework. Baz Luhrmann‘s big screen adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic opens wide this Friday (!), and just like Gatsby, our relationship with pools has been a mix of both pleasure and pain. Yes, it’s a rare and awesome chance to get a first-hand glimpse at seriously fit people putting their fab physique on display in revealing swimwear. But then it gets weird when people ask us why we’re swimming with our shirt on. “I’m cold” doesn’t work as well as you’d think. But in honor of the film’s release, we’ve decided to count down ten movie pool scenes where no one keeps their shirt on!
Like her Iron Man 3 alter ego, Pepper Potts, Gwyneth Paltrow is practically perfect in every way. She’s an Academy Award winning actress, People‘s Most Beautiful Woman in the World and besties with Beyonce. Gwynnie is also the author of GOOP, her lifestyle blog that tells people how to live a better life through diet, exercise and being rich and famous.
In order to be a superhero, you need to make sure you’ve got the bare essentials. You’ve got to have incredible superpowers, a heart-wrenching origin story, a sworn nemesis and an iconic, skin tight costume.
