Sir Kenneth Branagh isn’t just squaring off against Chris Pine in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit; he’s also the film’s director. The legendary Shakespearean actor and respected film director opened up to us about adapting Tom Clancy‘s cold war hero for the modern age, why Chris Pine is perfect to follow in the footsteps of Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin and why he goes out of his way to work with actors like Tom Hiddleston before they’re big stars.

The PR blitz ahead of the release of Star Trek Into The Darkness means one thing: The bromance of Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. The two stars are incredibly adorable around each other, showing just how great friends they are at press junkets and interviews. If only it was something more… But at least you can enjoy all their moments together over the past few weeks.
Zoe Saldana’s too beautiful to be believed. Zoe Saldana’s starring in a sure-to-be blockbuster (Star Trek Into The Darkness, opening this Friday). Zoe Saldana’s red carpet game is next level amazing. We hate this woman! Kidding. But in honor of her sick style, we’ve ranked her ten hottest ensembles of the year.
You have no idea how long we’ve been waiting for the new Star Trek movie. And now we’re one step closer because the teaser trailer is out and it is all sorts of boss. All the usual suspects are in there reprising their roles: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg and John Cho. New additions include Alice Eve and one totally baller Benedict Cumberbatch. Sherlock fans will know why we’re so stoked. And he’s the bad guy, which is even cooler. The trailer starts with his gravelly voice threatening, “You think your world is safe. It is an illusion. A comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned to have my vengeance.” And then everything explodes in the coolest way. Of course there’s the obligatory close-up shot of Pine’s face with his baby blues looking intent. Makes us melt every single time. There’s also one clip of Alice screaming in abject terror, so you know Cumberbatch is bringing it. The movies’s only releasing next year in May, which is a huge bummer, but if they keep serving slices of trailer goodness, we won’t complain. Not too much, at least.
As weekend hit the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival, it seems like the gals and the guys took very different approached to the dress code. Starlets like Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Cheryl Cole stepped out in gorgeous floor-sweeping gowns, and A-list actresses like Salma Hayek and Diane Kruger hit the red carpet in bosom-bearing low cut couture that left photographers screaming for more. The guys, on the other hand, seemed to take significantly less care on their appearance. Shia LaBeouf looked scruffy with a half-beard and his long unruly mane slicked back, while Gerard Butler also shared the five-o’clock-five-days-later shadow. But the king of the WTF fashion this weekend was Tom Hardy, who took grizzly to new heights with greasy-looking hair, unabomber beard, and a thousand-yard-stare that makes us wonder if he swam the Atlantic to attend the festival.

The 65th annual Cannes Film festival kicked off in high style today, as celebs from all around the world descended to the coastal town with their finest clothes and accessories. Eva Longoria and Diane Kruger both made big entrances in huge Cinderella gowns with trains that could stretch all the way to Paris! Jessica Chastain’s dress was a little more streamlined, but definitely drew attention with a plunging neckline. The dudes cleaned up pretty nicely as well, with action stars Bruce Willis and Chris Pine rockin’ the tuxes, but Sacha Baron Cohen (predictably) stole the show when he rode down the red carpet in full Dictator regalia while on the back of a camel. Sure it’s pretty in-your-face, but at least it’s better than drowning Elisabetta Canalis for publicity, right? We’ll go with yes. Check out more incredible styles in the gallery below!

The ads for This Means War don’t really do it any favors, we know. Yes, it is the silly action-rom-com it appears to be. And yes, it does feature the problematic premise that CIA guys can totally stalk women for fun. And some of Chelsea Handler’s lines are kind of cheesy. BUT they actually make you laugh in the context of the movie. Also, after spending five minutes with Tom Hardy’s character, you will not want him ever, ever to leave the screen again in the entire future of all film. And you will want to have Reese Witherspoon’s life and Chris Pine’s apartment for your very own. Part of the credit for the surprising likability of this McG movie goes to the stars, of course. And another part goes to costume designer Sophie De Rakoff, who’s designed the costumes for a number of Reese’s other movies, including a little one you may have heard of called Legally Blonde.
“Reese doesn’t ask for me, that’s not what she does,” De Rakoff explained to us. “People know that we have a relationship and that we work well together, and she looks good when I work with her, so that if the right movie comes along, then they’ll bring me in.”
