Last week, we took a look at the career of seventies and eighties megastar Burt Reynolds. This week's subject is a guy who arguably owes his stardom to the fact that Reynolds turned down what became a career-defining part for an actor who's been able to maintain his popularity for a quarter of a decade... Bruce Willis Now here's an entry I've agonized over. I've been meaning to do a column about Bruce Willis for awhile now, »

Miley Cyrus has fired another breast photo at Instagram in a continuing protest over the social media site’s ban on nudity, which pulled down the photo almost as soon as it was posted, but did not suspend Miley’s account. Cyrus and celebrities like Lena Dunham, Rihanna and Scout Willis have all protested in support of “Free The Nipple,” a grass-roots movement to promote laws allowing women to show their breasts in public. You may recall, Scout, the 22-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, was photographed in May walking down a New York City street topless. Models Soko, Suki Waterhouse, Cara Delevingne, Dree Hemingway and Kendall Jenner are also advocates along with with actors Adrian Grenier, Kellan Lutz and music mogul Russell Simmons. ...Read More »
Let me start by saying that when Tusk first came out, there wasn't a theater within an hour, and forty-five minutes, from me, showing it. As a huge Kevin Smith fan, this was disheartening. Every time I planned to drive, to see it, something came up. I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to catch it until it came out on DVD/VOD. Then a stroke of luck, and our little local indie theater, Cinema Center, got it for Halloween weekend. Score.
Going in, I had high hopes, but had become worried, as I saw the negativity rolled out. It wasn't until at some point watching the movie, that I remembered this is Kevin Smith we're talking about, and “haters gonna hate.” – mainly because this movie was pretty damn awesome.
I was unsure about a couple things. Number one, the perpetual »
Russia's Trust Bank, which used Hollywood star Bruce Willis in its ad campaign, has fallen prey to an overall economic crisis. The government had to step in and provide a $540 million bailout package, taking over supervision of the bank's operations in exchange. Willis has been featured in the advertising campaign of Trust Bank, Russia's 32nd largest bank, since 2010. In TV commercials and on billboards, he was pictured next to the slogan "Trust is just like me, only it's a bank!" The most recent TV commercial featuring Willis was released two months ago. In it, the actor saves a

Bruce Willis is saying thank you to the troops.
In a recorded holiday message posted on Uso's website on Dec. 18, the Die Hard actor encourages us all to do our part to thank the men and women who are serving our nation far away from their family and friends this holiday season.
"Now is the time where [our troops] need us most," Willis says. "I hope that others will join me in showing their gratitude to the brave men and women and in letting them know we are always by their side."
Willis ends the message with warm wishes for the troops, "Happy holidays, come home safe, God Bless and Merry Christmas" before saying "thank you so much."
Watch: Gavin DeGraw's Support for the Troops
In the fall of 2003, Willis saw the sacrifices of the troops firsthand when he traveled with the Uso. The Uso's mission is to lift the spirits America's troops and their families.

William Bradley Pitt. In the maelstrom of human physical perfection, rarely has a single being elicited so much universal awe as this man. Whether you’re an admirer of his films, or would simply like him to hold you ever so gently, there’s a piece of the Brad Pitt pie for everyone. So to speak. For over twenty years he’s been fawned over by legions of male and female fans, propelling the swoonsome hunk of meat into Hollywood sex-lore. Whatever that is.
But strictly from a hetero-male perspective, it’s likely you fall into one of three categories: one is you can’t stand the man or his films. Which makes you a liar. Category two is kind of admiring him from afar, bullishly envious of his good looks and ability to make you feel inferior. The final, and probably most common category, is having confusing thoughts »

Our final letters page of the year! So: are our Star Trek: The Next Generation lookbacks returning? And do we hate The Mentalist?
Welcome to our final letters page of the year! What started as a bit of a daft idea in the pub - starting a letters page on a website - bizarrely seems to have worked. As such, we shall be retreating to the pub far more often in 2015 to think of more daft ideas. Nothing could possibly go wrong with that plan.
For now? Here's our final selection of your missives for 2014. And thank you for supporting this, one of our daftest ventures to date...

I'm not much of a bookworm, but when I am, I got a lot of time for Iain M Banks books.
I chanced upon your interview with Dougray Scott from October last year, where it is mentioned that »
Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar are fast emerging as the new hit Jodi in B-town. After Special 26 that garnered much critical acclaim and commercial success in 2013, the duo has teamed up again for their next film –Baby!
When there is Akshay Kumar it’s surely understood that there would be tons of real, raw action to watch out for.

Ciril who is working with the Indian Khiladi, says that Akshay Kumar is as good as Bruce Willis in action and that he does not need a body double because he is better than the body double also! He also said that »

Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: Vice, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian’s mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all.

You know you’ve made it when they make a onesie in your honour. Rocky’s is iconically straightforward: it is black with a red hood, it shows a pair of red gloves hanging around the neck, and across the shoulders the word ‘Rocky’ is displayed in typically solid white capitals. There is something so simple and straightforward about the whole Rocky franchise that makes it irresistible – but there is more to the story than just the commercialisation.
In truth, Sylvester Stallone’s eponymous hero was a merchandising man’s dream – or to put it another way, Stallone captured something of the American dream in his humble, heart-as-big-as-a-lion hero: American dreams have always been in fashion.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.
Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.
Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.
Innovation should be rewarded. Experimentation should be commended. For those two reasons I’m awarding the second Sin City film two stars. There are reasons to celebrate the cinematic adaptation of Frank Miller’s neo-noir series of graphic novels. They are garish mash ups of old stories and new technology. Visually interesting pieces of crime fiction that expose almost every cliche the genre ever created.
I was pretty tough on the first Sin City. I admired what it aspired »

Stars: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Dennis Haysbert, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Christopher Lloyd, Jaime King, Juno Temple | Written by Frank Miller | Directed by Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller
It was an invite to review a Blu-ray like any other, or so I thought. You get your disc, you take your chances. Sometimes everyone goes home with a smile on their faces, sometimes people go to the emergency room… without any face. I heard from the people that know that a sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City was in town. Looking for trouble. Out to bust some heads and blow some minds. Sin City and me, we go way back. We had history. Once we’d been lovers but time had moved us apart. So when this new bozo turns up, A Dame to Kill For, »

Ho-Ho-Ho. ‘Tis the season to watch Die Hard, the classic Christmas-set action blockbuster that is also one of the most influential movies of all time. Not only has it spawned four actual sequels and a number of pseudo sequels, it’s also been copied, ripped off and practically remade over and over again without shame. And yet Die Hard was not even the first “Die Hard on a ____ ” movie. Nor was it a wholly original work, having been adapted from a book that was meant to be a sequel to another book and its movie adaptation. As much as this John McTiernan-directed breakout for Bruce Willis became a leader in its genre, it still owed a ton to movies that came before it. Some of those are indirect precursors in premise, others explicitly referenced. Die Hard is a movie that is, like its hero is said to be, an “orphan of a bankrupt culture,” informed »

Bruce Willis cut millions off the price on his 20 acre estate in Idaho and it looks like the actor may take a big hit as he has reduced the price from $15 million to $7 million. The home sounds magnificent, the 20-acre property has an 8,400-square-foot main house and was remodeled and upgraded in 20013 by the 'Die Hard' actor. It's not the first time he has taken less than his original asking price for one of his properties. Willis put his luxurious Spanish-style hacienda up for sale for $22 million in May 2013, but has finally decided to sell the property for $16.5 million after it failed to attract the interest he'd anticipated. However, Bruce will still make a huge profit as he paid a relatively modest $9 million for the house in 2004, but felt a higher selling price was justified because of the extensive renovations he had undertaken since moving »
Looks like Rumer Willis is taking a cue from Pink (at least when it comes to her fitness regime)! The 26-year-old daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a shot from a recent aerial workout. In the black and white pic, Willis is suspended sideways with her legs positioned in a middle split, showing off both her strength and flexibility. "@themarkwildman got me all split up," the singer appropriately captioned the pic. And apparently, this isn't the actress' first foray into the world of aerial dancing. She also posted a stunning shot just last week where she's hanging from an aerial silk while »
Following the first trailer that debuted last week, we have an exclusive clip from the upcoming sci-fi thriller Vice that gives us a proper introduction to this futuristic resort, through a message from Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis). Much like Westworld and Total Recall before it, Vice centers on a place where fantasies are fulfilled without consequence or punishment of any kind. This scene gives us a few brief glimpses at what some of those scenarios could be while visiting Vice.
Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: Vice, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian's mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all. »
No one was sure, when "The Green Mile" was released 15 years ago this week (on December 10, 1999), whether lightning could strike twice in the same spot for Frank Darabont. Sure, the writer/director's first Stephen King prison drama, 1994's "The Shawshank Redemption," had gone from commercial failure to beloved classic in five years. But another King prison tale, one that was three hours long and featured some horrific electric-chair executions, bizarre fantasy elements, and a trained mouse?
As it turned out, of course, "Green Mile" became a huge hit, earned four Oscar nominations, put another feather in star Tom Hanks's cap, and made a star of Michael Clarke Duncan, who played miracle-working, self-sacrificing inmate John Coffey. To this day, it remains the most beloved movie adapted from a King tale.
Still, as many times as you've seen it, there's plenty you may not know: how former ditch-digger Clarke got the star-making part, »

The Die Hard series may be alive and well, but there's a unique story behind the writing of each one…
As any action fanatic will tell you, Die Hard is among the best films of its type ever made. Tautly directed by John McTiernan, deceptively well shot by cinematographer Jan de Bont, and full of charismatic turns from Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman and Bonnie Bedelia, it’s seldom been bettered, even by its sequels.
The key to the first film's success, and the sequels in their best moments, is hero John McClane. Tough, sarcastic but ultimately human and relatable, he cuts a very different figure from the beefed-up, larger-than-life heroes of 1980s and 90s action cinema. When John McClane gets shot or injured, he actually feels pain. It's something we were keenly aware of in the 1988 original, but gradually ebbed away as the Die Hard franchise drifted from thriller territory »
The SyFy Channel has released a poster for their upcoming 12 Monkeys series. This show looks like it has potential, but we’ll have to wait to see how it all shakes out. You should check out the trailer for it here if you haven’t already.
The show stars Aaron Standford (X2: X-Men United) as Cole, who was played by Bruce Willis in the 1995 movie. The series seems very different from Terry Gilliam’s film, and the story follows the Cole as he travels from 2043 to the present day so that he can locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will all but annihilate the human race. While on his mission, he teams up with Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) as well as a female mental patient named Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire), which is a character loosely based on the character played by Brad Pitt.
12 Monkeys follows »
