Wonder Woman, the premiere female superhero of all time, is finally making her big screen debut in Batman vs. Superman! And, after years of speculation on who could play this role that every actress wants to play, the role of Diana Prince/Ww goes to Gal Gadot. Gadot played Giselle in Fast & Furious (No. 5) and Fast and Furious 6. She also played a Russian villain in Date Night.
Many actresses have been mentioned for the role of the Amazon Princess through the years, including Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Alba. More recently, Oblivion's Olga Kurylenko, Thor's Jaimie Alexander and G.I. Joe: Retaliation's Elodie Yung were believed to be up for the part.
Batman vs. Superman is the sequel to Man of Steel, scheduled to hit theaters in 2015. Zack Snyder is again directing and Henry Cavill will play Clark Kent/Superman once again. Christian Bale, however, will reportedly not be »

Beyoncé wowed a crowd of about 18,000 people last night in La at the Staples Center during her most recent Mrs. Carter Show tour stop - and that crowd happened to include plenty of famous fans. We spotted many celebrity couples in the boohoo VIP lounge, including Kate Mara and Max Minghella, who sipped champagne together in a corner booth, as well as Zoe Saldana, who attended with her new husband, Marco Perego, and her sister. Several stars also rolled to the show solo or with friends, including Molly Sims, Victoria Justice, and Kellan Lutz, and a couple of lucky ones had the chance to attend a meet-and-greet with the star after her show. Jessica Alba met Beyoncé backstage with a group of female friends and tagged their photo #queenb #beauty. Beyoncé's dynamic show included more than a half-dozen costume changes and a set list full of her biggest hits, »

Nine years after the release of Frank Miller’s and Robert Rodriguez’ Sin City, the sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will be hitting cinemas in August 2014. The stylish and violent film received critical acclaim back in 2005 and fans are no doubt excited for the followup, which is again directed by Miller and Rodriguez and is adapted from the second book in Miller’s graphic novel series.
It now looks like we’re going to be getting even more Sin City, as The Weinstein Company’s Harvey Weinstein outlined his future plans in an interview with The New York Times. Believing that it will ‘add stability’ to his company, Weinstein is hungry for a piece of the delicious pie that is television, unsurprising thanks to the massive success of big-budget shows such as The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones. TWC have plans for a number of television series, »

The Fast & Furious series is one of the less likely franchises in modern Hollywood history. It needed Paul Walker. He was the linchpin, back at the beginning. The first film was conceived as a Walker star vehicle. This was back when he was the guy from Varsity Blues and She’s All That and The Skulls. The latter film, mostly forgotten nowadays, was directed by Rob Cohen — and it was Cohen who thought of Walker for a film that was originally titled Red Line, based partially on a Vibe article and at least a little bit on Point Break.

We are devastated to put Jessica Alba on the Hot Mess list! This actress, CEO and mother-of-two is among the most flawless dressers we know. But facts are facts, and the fact is, she looks like a bad movie character from the '80s. We can't decide if she was going for the female version of Judd Nelson from The Breakfast Club or an outfit Lisa Turtle of Saved by the Bell would wear on casual Friday at The Peach Pit, but either way, it's not working. For us, a simple switch in pants would save this entire look. We can't tell if there's a camo theme or abstract art look going on, but we're not fans. There's too much going on in the embellished aztec top to warrant such a bold pant, and while we »
We know that Robert Rodriguez is bringing one of his previous films to the small screen, with a TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn currently filming, and now it's being reported by The New York Times (via ComicBookMovie) that The Weinstein Company is looking to branch out into the TV business and could be planning a Sin City series to follow the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For next year.
Apparently, Sin City is one of several movies that Bob Weinstein is looking to adapt for TV, with Rodriguez is said to be involved alongside with comic book creator and co-director Frank Miller. Meanwhile, in addition to the previously announced Scream pilot for MTV, Weinstein is also said to be working with director Frank Darabont on a 10-part series based upon Darabont's 2007 feature adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Mist.

The responses of those closet to him, his co-stars on Fast 7, are as expected gut-wrenchingly sad. The really striking thing though is that even people »

While undeniably tragic, it's fitting that Paul Walker lost his life in a car accident. It wasn't just his career that was defined by the adrenaline-soaked automotive orgies of the Fast & Furious series; his whole life hummed with a love of cars. A friend of mine, during a junket for Fast & Furious 6 this year, found him to be distant and unresponsive until she asked him a question about cars, at which point he all but grabbed her by the hand and giddily dug around inside an engine for her.

Paul Walker movies: Few worthwhile efforts away from the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise (photo: Paul Walker in ‘Hours’) (See previous post: “Paul Walker Dead: Fast and Furious Actor Killed in Fiery Car Crash.”) Aside from the Fast and Furious franchise, Paul Walker was featured in about 15 movies since the turn of the century; most of those were little-seen releases that did nothing to expand his following beyond fans of slick, high-speed shenanigans, e.g., John Glenn’s thriller and straight-to-dvd release The Lazarus Project (2008), co-starring Piper Perabo; Wayne Kramer’s box office bomb Running Scared, with Vera Farmiga; John Stockwell’s mix of deep-sea adventure and crime thriller Into the Blue, with Jessica Alba and Josh Brolin; and another straight-to-dvd effort, Mukunda Michael Dewil’s poorly received thriller Vehicle 19 (2013). Paul Walker’s handful of more prestigious and/or successful films were Clint Eastwood’s World War II drama Flags of Our Fathers »

Costars React To Paul Walker’s Death
Less than 24 hours after Paul tragically died, co-star Tyrese Gibson visited the crash site, where he immediately broke down in tears. The actor could not contain himself as he left a few flowers for his fallen co-star and then walked away stoically.
Vin Diesel meanwhile, is “inconsolable,” a friend told HollywoodLife. »

Paul Walker was a refreshing enigma in Hollywood. Though he starred in one of the most successful movie franchises of all time, he never seemed to revel in fame. He wouldn’t go out of his way to drum up press. Walker, the man, remained somewhat of a mystery throughout his career.
Perhaps that’s why people wrote him off as a dumb lug. With messy blond hair, a surfer’s accent, and chiseled features, Walker was easy to stereotype as a lucky, pretty face that didn’t have much going on upstairs.
But I never understood that characterization of the star. »

Walker was born in Glendale, California on September 12, 1973 to sewer contractor Paul William Walker III and fashion model Cheryl and was brought up in a working class Mormon household.
The eldest of five children, Walker began a modelling career at the young age of 2, appearing in a commercial for Pampers. Encouraged by his mother, he auditioned for television acting roles and went on to make guest appearances in Highway to Heaven and Touched by an Angel.

Walker's talents were transferred to the big screen in 1998, when he made his feature film debut as Phil Deedle in Disney comedy Meet the Deedles. Following the movie's success, Walker secured supporting roles in teen films including Varsity Blues, »
As the awards season heats up, The Weinstein Company, who has at least one horse in the race with Lee Daniels' the Butler, is shifting its focus to scripted TV. The studio already has its hands in a couple of reality programs including Project Runway, but now its looking to produce a number of one-hour dramas, one of which may be a Sin City spin-off that comes on the heels of the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, opening across the country this August.
There are at least six shows in pre-production right now, including the 10-episode Book of the Dead, a detective drama set in ancient Egypt. Also, 10 Commandments, another ten-episode drama. It will feature one episode helmed by such big name directors as Wes Craven, Lee Daniels, Madonna and Ryan Coogler, each of which will tackle one of the commandments as handed down by Moses. »
