Thanks to Jazz Tangcay for finding several new stills from Into the Woods.

Brand new photos from the forthcoming Rob Marshall directed Into The Woods have been released. It’s our first real look at the characters, and we even get a glimpse of the Wolf played by Johnny Depp.

Take a look at the new stills featuring Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Christine Baranski, Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep as The Witch. –JT










Here’s a fan-made teaser trailer that I first thought was the real deal — and I’m really relieved it’s not.


Vanity Fair put up a gallery of photos of the young ones from days gone by.  You’ll notice an enduring trend going all the way back to the early days of Hollywood – cheesecake sells.  Actresses are measured by their hotness – almost like cuts of beef in the butcher display case.  There really is no fighting it.  Human nature, marketing – you get the idea.  But they are worth a look.

We’ve begun our gallery for the new season, thanks to help of Dora Kappou, who runs the great site  We’ll be updating it throughout the season.

Can’t say “first look” because we’ve already seen leaked set pics, but EW has the first official look at Daniel Day-Lewis in costume and in character as Abraham Lincoln.

Emma Watson leads a relatively unknown cast in The Bling Ring, Sophia Coppola’s new film based on the real life escapades of the “Hollywood Hills Burglars.” In 2008 and 2009 a group of teenagers raided the home of several celebrities making off with as much as $3 million in cash and booty before they were nabbed, most of it from Paris Hilton, whose house was burglarized several times. The best account of the burglaries is by Nancy Jo Sales in Vanity Fair, who called the crime spree “completely unprecedented in the history of Hollywood.” The heists have been fodder for hundreds of lurid cover stories for many months. Here’s the questionable segue Maxim chose.

Time was, the Manson family haunted these hills, striking fear into the hearts of the rich and photogenic. Forty years later, Hollywood was once again being simultaneously terrorized and captivated. But the culprits this time were just a knuckleheaded crew of errant teenagers enraptured by the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s cult of celebrity. They would pick out the jewelry and designer clothes from the pages of fashion magazines, target the celebrities who had what they wanted, and then track their locations and movements using online sites like TMZ and (a kind of map to the stars’ homes using helicopter photography). From there it was easy: Hop a fence, open a window, and rummage through enough closets until they found what they were looking for. Call it the Home Invasion Shopping Network.

In one short year of operation, from October 2008 to their arrest in October 2009, the crew’s hit list of brand-name marks—Paris Hilton, Lohan, The Hills’ Audrina Patridge, The O.C.’s Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom, Brian Austin Green, and Ashley Tisdale of High School Musical—netted them a reported $3 million in cash and swag. The same magazines and Web sites they fetishized ate it up. TMZ dubbed them the Burglar Bunch. The Los Angeles Times went with the Bling Ring. Media blog Gawker made their pitch for the Beverly Hills Bandits. Whatever you called them, it was apparently a story tailor-made for Hollywood, especially when the culprits—young, wealthy, and attractive—were finally collared. (Maxim)

It was always going to be a mere matter of weeks (days, minutes) before Hollywood adapted its own investigation, so I suppose we’re lucky Sophia Coppola got her hands on the case before the Lifetime Channel trampled the evidence. Oh, too late.

Thanks once again to Dora for spiffing up the gallery for your entertainment pleasure. Even though the majority of ads are online now, there are still many beautiful print ads we have collected from various sources over the years. Have a look.

Print ads, to me, can celebrate the great shots in a film the way online ads can’t. Online ads can celebrate the moving image more.

Kenneth Branagh as Laurence Olivier in My Week With Marilyn. (via Empire)

Branagh told us, of the role, “I was incredibly impressed by the screenplay and wanted to play this man – who just happened to be Sir Laurence Olivier – but who was a fascinating human being to play at this point in his life. He was a great actor and director wrestling with the phenomenon that was Marilyn. He was in awe of her screen persona and her sexuality and at the same time infuriated by her off screen behaviour. The script was a fascinating study of a very fine artist coming up against an equally fine one and the fireworks that result.”

The resemblance is almost too spooky. Full-length view after the cut.

Michelle Williams displays an uncanny resemblance to the screen icon in the film, which tracks Monroe during her 1956 visit to London, where she was filming The Prince and the Showgirl opposite Laurence Olivier (played by Kenneth Branagh). The chemistry between the two screen titans was notoriously tense during their movie match-up, and Monroe was on her honeymoon with her new husband, playwright Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott).

The week in question refers to the time, after Miller left London, that film set assistant Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne) introduced Marilyn to some of the pleasures of British life in an effort for her to get away from the pressures of Hollywood life. (via ET)

The Ides of March takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, when an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency.

JED BROPHY as Nori, ADAM BROWN as Ori and MARK HADLOW as Dori in New Line Cinema’s and MGM’s fantasy adventure THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY, a Warner Bros. Pictures release. Photo by James Fisher.

These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.

Path√© has released more unsettling stills from Pedro Almodovar’s horror thriller The Skin I Live In. has this roughly-translated synopsis:

Since his wife perished burnt in a car crash, Dr Ledgard (Antonio Banderas), a well respected plastic surgeon, gets interested in the creation of a new type of skin that could have saved his wife. Twelve years later he succeeds in cultivating it at his lab, taking advantage in the advance made on cellular therapy. To get to his goal he doesn’t doubt in trespassing the ethical limit of the transgenesis with human beings. But this will not be the only crime he will commit‚Ķ

More after the cut, including a NSFW full-size view of the cropped shot above. Even more disturbing are descriptions of the novel on which the film is loosely based, Thierry Jonquet’s Tarantula — summaries which may spill major spoilers so don’t read them if you want to wait to be shocked.
