Go Topless Day Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski doffed their tops, painting the fleshy twofer as a statement on feminism — though Piers Morgan, for one, wasn’t buying that explanation. Model Naomi Campbell posted a topless photo of herself on Instagram last year, aligning herself with the #FreeTheNipple movement. Scout Willis, the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, bared her breasts through Brooklyn to protest Instagram’s censoring policy. “What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body,” Willis declared. Halle Berry joined Instagram in the splashiest possible way in March, »

We can probably all agree that staying friends with an ex isn't the easiest thing in the world to do, whether you're famous or not. While many high-profile breakups (and divorces in particular) can get nasty, there are a handful of former couples who have managed to put any animosity aside for the sake of their children, families, or just each other. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin told the world that they were "consciously uncoupling" while on a tropical vacation together, and have been spotted on dinner dates and family trips since their split. Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom announced that they amicably separated after three years of marriage, and just days later we saw the couple, with their son Flynn, sharing a sweet smooch. Even long-divorced couples like Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, and Mick and Bianca Jagger have been able to remain civil »

Rolling Stone just issued their list of the 'Top 100 Television Shows of All Time.' The rankings, which came from a survey of actors, writers, critics, and producers, includes all the shows you’d expect like Seinfeld, The Simpsons, The Sopranos. And a bunch of other programs that don’t start with the letter “S.” It’s a pretty comprehensive list and a reminder of how many great shows there have been even before what we’re now calling the Golden Age of television. Like any “top” anything list, there’s controversy. And we’re more than happy to dive into that topic. One thing we didn’t do is re-rank everything. If we did that, we’d be here forever and you wouldn’t want to read any further. So rather than that, we’ve just picked three shows that made the list that shouldn’t have and three replacements to fill those gaps. »

The third “Captain America” film rode its $408.1 domestic theatrical gross to a No. 1 debut on both Npd VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ended Sept. 18.
The 13th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe line is one of those rare sequels with a bigger theatrical take than either of its two predecessors. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier: (2014) earned $260 million, while the original 2011 “Captain America: The First Avenger” made $177 million.
Walt Disney’s live-action “The Jungle Book” remake, at the top of both charts the two previous two weeks, »

Cool heads and hands are required in pastry week, aka the great British flake off. Can the contestants handle it, dough?
It’s been an hour since I ate anything, so I have to go, like, now. But thank you all for being so much fun to play with down below. I mean that in the most suggestive way possible!
I shall be on Inspect A Gadget duties as usual, and please say hi on the tweeter or the Instant Gran. Heidi, who’s been baking herself on the Costa del Crime, will be back next week, funnier than ever. Don’t tell her I broke everything.
We’ll never see that amalgam of nanny mimsiness and sharp-edged psycho in the tent again. She was one of a kind. We salute you Val! It was, as people have pointed out below, a good innings. Pleased for Candice too. »

When Kathy Bates receives her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Sept. 20, the moment will hold much significance. “It’s a big deal to me,” the Oscar winner admits. “It’s going to be right in front of the TLC Chinese Theatre. I just discovered that and kept asking, ‘Are you sure?’”
Bates adds that this is meaningful to her for several reasons. “I have a photograph from around 1956 with my Aunt Lee, right in front of the theater,” Bates says of the location, which was then known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. “She and my grandmother lived out here and we came often to visit them, driving cross-country from Memphis.” Bates can recall spending the day with her mother’s sister, having tea at Bullock’s department store, and walking around the theater. Her aunt died of breast cancer over 40 years ago, but Bates holds her memory dear. »

Brian De Palma’s screen adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s The Bonfire of the Vanities was panned by critics and audiences alike in the months and years following its 1990 release, but it doesn’t deserve this kind of flak. In telling the story of a Wall Street bigwig (Tom Hanks) whose life gets upended after his mistress runs over a black teenager in the South Bronx, the movie offers a wicked satire of racial politics in America that deserves to be mentioned alongside Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing, which hit theaters just 17 months earlier. Granted, Lee’s classic emerges the markedly superior film because, unlike The Bonfire of the Vanities, its characters transcend their function as caricatures to become nuanced individuals. Still, De Palma’s confident, hilarious polemic is a formidable achievement, hitting places that hurt in 1990 and, sadly, continue to hurt today. That the film feels like »

Jj Abrams is one of the most powerful people in Hollywood right now. Over his career in the movies, he's written, directed, produced, acted and played a wicked keyboard solo on Cool Guys Don't Look At Explosions, and through his production company Bad Robot, his name is counted among the credits of massive franchises like Cloverfield, Mission: Impossible, Star Trek and of course Star Wars. He's more of a household name than most filmmakers of his generation and we sometimes wish we wanted anything as much as he wants that Steven Spielberg status.
You can't blame him when you hear about his first paid job in the film industry. Returning a bunch of Spielberg's personal super-8 home movies that he discovered after his »
The actor gives a strong performance as a desperate social climber in this fractured drama that works best as a flawed character study
Quietly and usually without much of an audience, Richard Gere is having a bit of a moment. Unlike his similarly aged peers Liam Neeson and Bruce Willis, he’s rejected the senior stuntman route and instead made the decision to embrace his older self, taking on roles that are reliant on his age, often uncomfortably so. In Time Out of Mind, he played a homeless man struggling to reconnect with his estranged daughter, in The Benefactor he was an unhinged philanthropist making amends for his tortured past and, well, he even joined the cast of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Man, I want a Bruce Willis who gives a shit back. It's not like he can't still give a great performance (just look at the recent Moonrise Kingdom). It's just that he seems content to do basically two-day walk-ons in Rebox action movies while half-comatose. Even during action scenes he seems bored. This brings us to First Kill, which also stars Hayden Christensen. The... Read More »

We examine the recent Val Kilmer movies, that happened to have bypasses cinemas...
Once upon a time, Val Kilmer’s individual look - defined by a little Swedish blood from his mother’s side - had hearts pumping. Those looks, along with his arrogant, edgy attitude and acting style, helped him clinch plenty of complimentary roles during the 80s and early-90s. Films like Top Secret, Top Gun, Willow and my personal favourite Real Genius were pushing him toward a stellar career back then, and his star was steadily rising.

But Kilmer came down from a serious high of Heat and Tombstone in the mid-90s when he signed on to the notorious clusterfuck that was The Island Of Dr. Moreau, and only recently has the part he played in its disastrous production come to light. »

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Big.
I can still see it clear as day. The year was 1992 and I was watching Batman Returns on the big screen, when I was possibly a little too young for it. During the climax the Penguin’s base has been destroyed, Catwoman has gained revenge on Max Shreck and Batman watches a chorus of sad penguins drag their fallen master to the water.
One particular image always stuck with me - the Penguin’s lifeless body floating in the water looking up at the camera, and as it passes out of frame Batman’s torn mask can be seen at the bottom of the water. The only problem with this poetic image is it doesn’t exist. »
I’m still not sure if Bruce Willis is the right man to star in a remake of Death Wish. Hell, I’m still not sure if Death Wish is a movie that needs to be remade at all. And yet, I’m interested what a director like Eli Roth, a filmmaker with a penchant for getting really ugly, […]

A remake of the Charles Bronson thriller of the same name – itself an adaptation of Brian Garfield’s novel – D’Onofrio and Dean Norris will now join Bruce Willis in the overhaul, which has set up shop over at MGM and Paramount. Indeed, this two-fold casting coup is a real sign of progress for Death Wish, given the project has spent the past few years languishing on the fringes of development.
During that time, Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (Big Bad Wolves) were in line to helm Paramount’s remake before last-minute script changes forced the directing pair to bow out. Joe Carnahan (The Grey and, soon, Bad Boys For Life) also contributed to the screenplay during its formative years, before Scott Alexander »

Fresh off the heels of all that Bond, director Sam Mendes looks to be switching his focus to more family-oriented, less suave fair with a live-action adaptation of James and the Giant Peach. According to Deadline, the Spectre director is in early talks to helm the project off a script penned by Nick Hornby with Disney backing. James and the Giant Peach was last seen on the big screen in animated form in 1996.
In other news, Deadline reports the Ocean’s Eight crew has found a member in Sarah Paulson, who is in talks to join the heist flick that already stars Paulson’s Carol co-star Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, and Awkwafina. The project is helmed by Gary Ross (Hunger Games, Seabiscuit) off a script co-written by Ross and Olivia Milch. George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh produce. The film is slated for 2017 release. »

Deadline is reporting that Vincent D’Onofrio and Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris have both signed on to the Death Wish remake. Directed by Eli Roth, the film is expected to star Bruce Willis as a sort of grizzled genie who loves to grant wishes—as long as those wishes are for death.
Okay, so that’s probably just Death Wishful thinking. Instead, the Roth-directed film will probably just be an even-more-violent retread of the old Charles Bronson vigilante splatterfests, except with Willis in the role of Paul Kersey, a mild-mannered architect-turned-architect of death. (We’ll be honest: we’re kind of addicted to ending sentences with death right now.) D’Onofrio will play Willis’ brother, while Norris plays a police detective. Going off his past track record, though, it’ll probably take Norris’ character a while—and some aggressively placed clues—for him to crack the case. But ...
