Look at Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe
Friday, November 26 by

Here’s the first official pic of Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in My Week With Marilyn. She’s not quite as thick as the official blonde that gentlemen prefer, but I can see her embodying the role quite well.

Wednesday, November 24 by

Now that Emma Stone is a pretty big deal, she’s having to drop out of a few projects. She was originally attached to Jonah Hill’s 21 Jump Street, but Sony came calling with the Spider-Man offer and it was too sweet to refuse. Does the name Stephen J. Cannell carry no weight these days???

Check out this new poster for Apollo 18. Apparently, there’s a reason we’ve never gone back to the moon, and it has nothing to do with the fact that we’re about 14 trillion in debt.

DiCaprio Will Snitch In JFK Assassination Story ‘Legacy Of Secrecy’
Monday, November 22 by

Being one of the biggest stars in the world has afforded Leonardo DiCaprio the artistic freedom to create any project that he wants (and bang models). He’s using that power (not the model-banging one) to bore the crap out of us with another story centered around the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Christian Bale Doesn’t Believe ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Is Real Batman 3 Title
Sunday, November 21 by

We didn’t expect big Batman news from Christian Bale while he’s promoting his new drama, The Fighter. He doesn’t shoot until next year, but I thought at least I could get his reaction to the title Christopher Nolan announced. Bale doesn’t even believe it’s going to be called The Dark Knight Rises.

When we finally see Kevin Flynn again in Tron: Legacy, he sort of resembles an even more famous Jeff Bridges character. You’ve seen that barefoot, bearded Flynn in the robe, but he even talks like The Dude. He describes digital jazz, man and doesn’t want anyone to “mess with his Zen.”
