If you've ever thought that George Clooney is the most style-savvy celebrity ever, it turns out you weren't alone.
The two-time Oscar-winner has been named the most stylish man "of all time", according to a nation-wide poll conducted by the men's personal styling site Bombfell.
Clooney beat out the former James Bond actor Sean Connery, who came in second, as well as late Hollywood style icons Cary Grant, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, who came in third, fourth, and fifth, respectively.
As for the rest of the top 10, Will Smith, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp also made the exclusive list. Another former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan tied with Michael Jackson for ninth place. NCIS: La star LL Cool J rounded off the list at No. 10.
So what is it that makes a man "stylish"? It's a lot more than just the clothes he wears, according »
Anthony Stokes on race and superhero movies…
Michelle Rodriguez made some comments about race swapping in comic book movies over the weekend, which she later went back and clarified, but the general gist was for minority actors to “stop stealing roles from white people”. Because there are so many white actors and actresses starving for roles, right? This isn’t really a response to Rodriguez, who like I said later apologized, but rather the sentiment itself.
I’ve touched on this before and I’m a big supporter of race changes when it’s necessary, or when the actor fits. What decides whether a race change is necessary is completely subjective and differs from person to person. But I think a lot of the outcry from the fans about some race changes are just childish. “That’s a change and we don’t like change”-type of mentality comes to mind, »

Kristen Stewart's latest role? A bag lady. A very fancy bag lady, that is. The Twilight star continues to serve as Karl Lagerfeld's muse in Chanel's Spring 2015 handbag campaign "3 Girls 3 Bags." The other two ladies featured in the project are Johnny Depp's ex Vanessa Paradis and British model Alice Della. In the minimalistic black and white image—which was shot by Lagerfeld—K.Stew can be seen rocking a silk suit and white tee with a classic quilted Chanel purse. This particular bag, an 11.12 style, is made of lambskin and features herringbone pattern. It's been well over a year since the 24-year-old first partnered with Chanel and the actress shows no signs of »
That's why Yann Demange has been eagerly sought out. For the last year, since ''71' broke out at Berlin 2014 (going on to play some 33 festivals including Telluride, Toronto, New York, London and Sundance), Demange has been a critical darling (best director winner at the British Independent Film Awards and BAFTA-nominated), wined and dined on the festival circuit and in Hollywood, where he has been hanging his hat for the moment. That's what you do. You go to meeting after meeting looking for the next best project. The danger, oft-repeated, is that agents and managers and sweet-talkers lure the unsuspecting rube into development limbo--or misguided studio projects--until the heat is gone and that catapulting career moment is past. Ask David Michod, Stephen Frears, or Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who unfortunately followed up his Oscar-winning "The Lives of Others" with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie boondoggle "The Tourist." Some wondered if Demange. »

The narrative going into this weekend was that "Focus" would mark a comeback of sorts for Will Smith. His first lead role since the career stumbling block two years ago that was "After Earth," "Focus" was supposed to be an easy lay-up for Smith, a sleek, star-powered caper comedy that would face little competition in the doldrums of February. Pundits predicted a debut in the low $20 millions.
Nonetheless, when the snow flurries cleared on Sunday, "Focus" hadn't even crossed $20 million; estimates had the film's weekend premiere scoring just $19.1 million. That's the first time, since Smith's Oscar-baiting prestige drama "Seven Pounds" in 2008, that he's failed to crack $20 million on an opening weekend. (Even "After Earth" pulled off a $27.5 million debut.)
With two relative flops in a row (three if you count his rare supporting role in last year's "Winter's Tale"), it's officially time for pundits to start wondering if Smith has »

Las Vegas…the hotbed haven where dreams of high rollers are realized among the glitzy bright lights, the element of chance and luck and the adrenaline for instant fortune. But there is a deception to Sin City that is overlooked–the isolation of a gambler’s anxiety and desperation, the false sense of confidence at the craps table and the swinging doors of the psychological lows more so than the rewarding highs.
Still, Las Vegas has its excitable aura–both innocence and guilt–where one arrives to skillfully manufacture their financial profile or go bust. In some instances, the hedonistic expectations are defined in other fun, precarious ways. It is no wonder that Hollywood has come calling to put its distinctive spin on the capital city of adult entertainment. For decades, the movies have made Las Vegas its backdrop for wonderment, degradation, intrigue, comical curiosity and soul-searching revelations.

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

Marilyn Manson fans were treated with one handsome treat! The rocker was entertaining a crowd of people during his concert in Brisbane on Friday night, when one of his old pals ended up surprising everyone by joining Manson on stage—Johnny Depp! The two had also performed during the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards in L.A. a few years back (pictured above). The actor had traveled to Australia to film the next installment of Pirates of the Caribbean, but clearly decided to take the night off and have some fun, so he headed to the Tivoli venue and ended up making a number of people's night. Channeling his onscreen character, Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp wore a red pirate-style »

Into the Woods is hitting on Blu-Ray March 24th, and this one has a lot of great bonuses. Of course, it’s to be expected from Disney, but beyond that, this is one that doesn’t even need a lot of bonuses. Check our Into the Woods review here for the full report on the film itself.
Among the bonuses are a commentary track, several behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a look at the cast.
Not only was this a really great movie (and I’m no huge musical fan), but it’s one that, like most things Disney, is going to go into heavy rotation.
Check out all the details below.

This week sees the release of indie horror It Follows. You will have no doubt seen the posters or trailer plastered everywhere, but you might not know too much about the film. It Follows is the second feature film from director David Robert Mitchell and sees teenage girl Jay, played by Maika Monroe, the star of last year’s brilliant The Guest, and her friends stalked by a malevolent spirit. So far it sounds like every horror film out there but the twist with It Follows is that you only become a target if you sleep with someone already in its sights; it’s a cross between the video in Ringu and an Std.
Last week we had the opportunity to sit down with both director David Robert Mitchell and one of the young cast, actor Daniel Zovatto. Zovatto is originally from Costa Rica (yes folks the land of Jurassic Park »

In his new sitcom, Paul Whitehouse plays multiple mental-health patients – from an agoraphobic to an obese mummy’s boy. He talks to Maureen Paton Maguire about therapy, heart surgery – and why Johnny Depp can get lost
As I walk along the corridor, I can hear Paul Whitehouse up ahead, har-harring away inside one of the BBC’s goldfish bowl offices. “Security wouldn’t let me in at first,” he tells me with a filthy guffaw, as we meet. “They didn’t recognise me.” Well, Whitehouse is one of the greatest shape-shifting comedians of his generation, a man so revered by Johnny Depp that he agreed to guest-star on The Fast Show.
“Johnny said I was the finest actor of all time, but that’s a bit silly, isn’t it – how does he know? I recently did a little cameo in a film of his, Through the Looking Glass, and he said, »

Three recent murders, three missing heads, one long-dead killer rumored to be back at work. With minds reeling and heads rolling, the small town of Sleepy Hollow is anything but sleepy when Ichabod Crane arrives. A police constable from New York City, Crane’s methods are unconventional for the brink of the 19th century, as he relies on forensic science over superstition to solve cases.
But with the Headless Horseman prowling the wooded trails, Crane’s science meets the supernatural in Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow. Starring Johnny Depp as the curious Crane, the memorably macabre 1999 film receives a terrific tribute with Hot Toys' new Ichabod Crane Sixth Scale Figure from Sideshow Collectibles. They’ve given us a look at the new entry to their Movie Masterpiece Series and the incredible amount of detail and care put into this Depp depiction is downright scary.

The 87th annual Academy Awards on Sunday marked the death of another long, exhausting awards season in Hollywood, and thank God, because we couldn’t take much more of what some of the biggest ceremonies had to offer.

Sorry, Kanye West but apparently Johnny Depp captured Kim Kardashian West's heart first. Before becoming Mrs. West, the reality star, 34, had a crush on the man behind Captain Jack Sparrow. She told Australia's Daily Life, that she used to swoon over the recently wedded Depp, 51, when she was a teen. "I was obsessed with Johnny Depp when I was a teenager. I thought he was so hot. He was gorgeous and had that bad-boy streak - especially when he was with Winona Rider and then Kate Moss," West said. "I loved looking at couples and wondering what it was »

Sinofsky covered a range of topics in his career — from heavy metal to murder cases.
He is best known for the “Paradise Lost” trilogy, a series of films he made with Berlinger about the West Memphis Three, a group of teenagers convicted, despite a lack of evidence, of murdering and sexually mutilating three prepubescent boys. Prosecutors claimed the children were killed as part of a satanic court ritual. Those films helped draw attention to miscarriages of justice associated with their trial and conviction. A number of celebrities including Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Henry Rollins and Johnny Depp also rallied to the cause.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer just updated his Twitter page with two photos from the Australian set of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales," giving us our first (unclear) look at Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. Check out the photo below. Plot: Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea... including him. Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas. The new movie just finished its first week of shooting and is set to hit theaters on July 7th, 2017. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
