Hollywood is full of mysteries. Does Tom Cruise really wear platforms during kissing scenes? Why do British people do the best Southern accents? Is Halle Berry aging backwards? All valid questions, but one of the biggest is: Why do some movie stars keep getting work, despite evidence that they should probably take a seat (or rethink their career choices)? Read more…
Movie makeup can be an awesome thing. Remember the jaw-droppingly realistic transformation Charlize Theron went through to become oily-haired, acne-plagued serial killer Ariel Wuornos in Monster? What about Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button, or Heath Ledger‘s Joker? When done right, the combination of artful makeup and prosthetics can truly perform miracles of visual trickery. It’s movie magic at it’s finest!
The 2013 South Korean science fiction film Snowpiercer by acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho featured an international cast and has been recognized as a modern classic of the genre. Adapted from the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, it tells the story of humanity’s last survivors living together on a massive train in a post-apocalyptic ice age. The movie’s protagonist, Curtis Everett, leads a rebellion on board the train and is played by none other than hunky Captain America star Chris Evans.
The Snowpiercer DVD and Blu-ray Disc comes out today and in celebration we’re posting this exclusive interview clip. Hear Evans and director Bong’s insights into the character of Curtis Everett. Find out why he shows a very different side of Evans acting prowess that fans haven’t seen before.
Believe it or not, but it’s been nearly four years since we were blessed with a new Harry Potter film. And it’s been 13 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone hit theaters. Now, the actors who portrayed the beloved child wizards are all grown up. Some are movie stars. Some are television staples. And some are just plain hot.
Annabelle, a spin-off of the 2013 horror movie The Conjuring, hits theaters this weekend. The film centers on a creepy living doll — aptly named Annabelle — that gets possessed by satanists who invade a married couple’s home. Horrific events at the hand of the tiny yet terrifying toy ensue. However, she isn’t the first to come alive and scare the pants off humans with knife-wielding antics.
With movie ticket sales declining, quality television has taken its place as the cool kids table in the cafeteria. The hottest, most feted actors in all of celebdom are clamoring to get cast on the small screen — and it’s not just TV actors. Movie stars want in on the compelling scripts and genius ensemble casts, too. Read more…
Tom Felton turns a ripe old 27 today — so, yeah, Harry Potter fans, you’re going to be middle-aged soon. That also means it’s been years since he’s had to bleach his hair that awful Draco Malfoy blond. Sorry, some of you were perhaps drawn to that ‘do, in all its evil glory. We can’t really imagine spending our entire adolescence defined by such a distinctive style. (Though there are probably some perks that made up for it.)
Lifetime aired its buzzed-about biopic on the late Brittany Murphy — aptly titled The Brittany Murphy Story — Saturday night. Controversy reached a fever pitch last week when Murphy’s father Angelo Bertolotti told Examiner he is “outraged” by the “hideous, unauthorized, and completely untrue” film. However, after watching the movie, he isn’t too far off-base.
Lifetime aired its highly-anticipated movie The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story last night, and one thing is pretty clear by the credits: It was a hard knock four years for Screech (Dustin Diamond). Narrated by Bayside High School’s resident geek — and loosely based off Diamond’s 2009 tell-all Behind the Bell — Unauthorized puts Screech in one corner and his pretty-preppy co-stars (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Lark Voorhies, Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani Thiessen) in the other. For two hours, we watch Diamond yearning to be hotter, edgier, drunker (yup) — and the whole thing is really, really depressing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters this weekend, and we couldn’t be more excited to see one of our favorite franchises get the larger-than-life reboot it deserves. Seeing Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello reunite has us thinking about their celebrity doppelgangers. In other words, stars that look like turtles. Duh.
