Italian actress Claudia Gerini is best known to UK audiences for appearances in The Passion of the Christ, Penelope Cruz’s Don’t Move and as a memorable villain in the TV adaptation of Kate Mosse’s Labyrinth. Audiences will soon be able to see her in the mad Italian sex-thriller Tulpa, directed by her husband Federico Zampaglione, whose previous film was the neat little horror, Shadow. A throwback to the classic Italian giallo horror-thrillers of the 1960s and 70s, Tulpa concerns a beautiful banker, Lisa (Gerini) whose life becomes a nightmare when members of the sex club she frequents begin turning up dead. »
This is definitely one way to stop animal cruelty! 38-year-old reality star Shanna Moakler and three younger former Miss Americas stripped all the way down to promote PETA’s ‘Say No To Fur’ message.
Sex sells, but can it get people to stop wearing fur? The animal rights organization PETA is once again hoping it can — on June 13 they released a new ad featuring four former Miss Americas — completely naked!
Miss Americas Go Nude For PETA
The poster shows Shanna Moakler, 38, Alyssa Campanella, 23, Shandi Finnessey, 35, and Susie Castillo, 33, cozying up to each other totally nude (well, except for those high heels). The former Miss Americas have some strategically-placed hands draped over each other to cover up certain spots, and the ad also features the clever tagline, “Feel beautiful in your own skin, and let animals keep theirs.”
Shanna, Alyssa, Shandi, and Susie definitely look beautiful in their own skin (emphasis on skin! »

Penelope Cruz won't be following in the footsteps of former Bond girls Halle Berry and Denise Richards, a production source tells Us Weekly exclusively. "Penelope is not in talks to be a Bond girl in a James Bond movie," the insider says. "The stories are totally false." The casting rumors began June 2 when Yahoo UK reported that the 39-year-old Academy Award winner was in negotiations to film the 24th installment of the James Bond series next summer. Sources told the website that producers "had tried to [...] »
Music Make You Lose Control: Almodovar’s Return to High Camp Shenanigans
Fans of Pedro Almodovar’s early works, like Dark Habits and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown should be really, really excited for his latest, I’m So Excited, a bawdy, trifling, absurd breath of fresh air that sees the auteur return to zany high camp territory. However, while those early works had a playful subversive edge to them, this latest confection feels a little light on the transgressions, despite some memorably crass moments and minor politically minded jeering.
A technical failure to the landing gear (caused by two airport employees in cameos from Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz) puts Peninsula Flight 2549 en route to Mexico City in peril, forcing Captain Acero (Antonio de la Torre) and co-pilot Benito Moron (Hugo Silva) to fly in circles over Toledo. Economy class has been given muscle relaxers and thus are all passed out, »

Not only has 20th Century Fox announced new dates for four of their upcoming features, we also have learned when you'll be able to see one of the most talked about films of this year's Sundance Film Festival. Let's start with Ridley Scott and Cormac McCarthy's The Counselor, shall we? While the film packs an absolutely brilliant all-star cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and more, it was originally set to debut on November 15th, the same day as Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street (a movie that will be targeting the exact same demographics). It was only a matter of time before one of the two projects blinked and switched dates, and it appears that The Counselor has made the move. Fox has now moved »

With every Bond edition comes the inevitable question: Who will play the action hero's leading lady? It's probably a more important discussion than who will play Bond himself.
As Hollywood works to solidify the 24th entry in the indelible series, wheels are turning about who will take over for Bérénice Marlohe and Tonia Sotiropoulou, the ladies who nabbed the coveted roles in "Skyfall." Penelope Cruz emerged as a viable frontrunner -- and an excellent choice, if we do say so ourselves -- but now her reps are reportedly denying the actress's involvement with the Bond series.
So if not Cruz, who will take the reins and don the coveted title of the next official Bond girl? We've rounded up 20 actresses (of all ages, mind you -- who says a Bond girl has to still be suckling on the teat of Young Hollywood?) who are among the hottest in the business »

After everything in her life falls to pieces, including her marriage to wealthy businessman Hal (Alec Baldwin), elegant New York socialite Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) moves into her sister Ginger’s (Sally Hawkins) modest apartment in San Francisco to try to pull herself back together again.
Jasmine arrives in San Francisco in a fragile mental state, her head reeling from the cocktail of anti-depressants she’s on. While still able to project her aristocratic bearing, Jasmine is emotionally precarious and lacks any practical ability to support herself. She disapproves of Ginger’s boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale), who she considers another “loser” like Ginger’s ex-husband Augie (Andrew Dice Clay).
Ginger, recognizing but not fully understanding her sister’s psychological instability, suggests that she pursue interior design, a career she correctly intuits that Jasmine won’t feel is beneath her. In the meantime, Jasmine begrudgingly accepts work as the receptionist in a dentist’s office, »

Let’s face it: Javier Bardem is awesome. He was one of the better Bond baddies in Skyfall, he was a cold hard psychopath in No Country For Old Men, And he’s married to Penelope Cruz. With upcoming roles in The Counselor and his recent turn in To The Wonder, the guy pretty much spends his time being awesome. Now Javier Bardem has signed on for two new films: The Gunman and A Most Violent Year.
First: The Gunman. Bardem is joining the film alongside Sean Penn, to be directed by Pierre Morel (Taken). The film will follow Penn as a man named Martin Terrier, who runs afoul of his organization and goes on the run. But Javier Bardem is coming after him. Who will in this fight? Given narrative structure, I’ll bet on Penn, but Bardem is totally more of a badass. I was half-expecting him to beat James Bond in Skyfall. »

Italian actor, director and screenwriter Sergio Castellitto is to be honoured at the 66th edition of the Locarno Film Festival (August 7-17).
The tribute to Castellitto will include a conversation with him that is open to the public, and screenings of five films spanning his career: Jacques Rivette’s Va Savoir (Who Knows?) (2001), Marco Bellocchio’s My Mother’s Smile (2002), Alessandro Angelini’s Raise Your Head (2009), as well as Love & Slaps (2010) and the Swiss premiere of Twice Born, directed by Castellitto.
Locarno artistic director Carlo Chatrian said: ”This recognition of actor and director Sergio Castellitto is a way to honour a career that has bridged two distinct eras in Italian cinema - that of the ‘sacred monsters’ (Monicelli, Ferreri, Mastroianni…) and the new (Amelio, Bellocchio, Virzì) - before finding his own creative trajectory.
“Whether in the service of Italian or foreign filmmakers, or involved in his own productions, Sergio Castellitto represents the kind of quality Italian cinema »

Catch up with the last seven days in the world of film
In the Guardian film section, we like to think of ourselves as sophisticated, chin-stroking types; above the fray as it were, committed to the cerebral life. So imagine our astonishment when we found ourselves caught up in a veritable firestorm of an exclusive, a news story that did, quite literally, get the entire world going. During an interview to promote his new film Behind the Candelabra, Michael Douglas told our man Xan Brooks that the virus Hpv, which had caused his cancer, had been picked up via oral sex.
Xan dutifully reported Douglas's words in his piece, and all hell swiftly broke loose. The story remained number one on the Guardian website for days and all sorts of health debates were entered into – rather obscuring the fact that Douglas's performance as Liberace is arguably the »
Javier Bardem is in the process of lining up roles in two new movies.
Bardem will reportedly play the "good guy", an ambitious businessman who is forced to deal with a corrupt establishment in 1980s New York. Production is due to take place this autumn in Manhattan.
Oscar winner Bardem is expecting his second child with wife Penelope Cruz later this year.
Exclusive: Javier Bardem has found a couple of killer roles. He will star as the good guy (for a change) in J.C. Chandor’s next film, A Most Violent Year, which will shoot in Manhattan this fall. Chandor, who made a splash in Cannes unveiling the Robert Redford-starrer survival tale All Is Lost, wrote A Most Violent Year, which Before The Door’s Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb will produce, with FilmNation handling global sales. Bardem is also locking in to go mano a mano with Sean Penn in The Gunman, another project that made waves at Cannes by selling out its foreign territorial allotment. The film is being directed by Pierre Morel and financed by Studio Canal, with Joel Silver and Andrew Rona producing. Bardem excels in these kinds of movies, winning the Oscar for No Country For Old Men, and most recently playing the existentially tortured villain »

Word on the strip is that Penelope Cruz is at the top of the list to be the next Bond Girl, in the as yet unnamed 24th James Bond movie, scheduled to shoot next summer. It's been reported that Sam Mendes (who directed the last Bond film, Skyfall) will likely return for #24. Assuming Cruz does end up as Bond Girl 24, this might be the first time that a husband and wife have both appeared in James Bond movies. Her husband, Javier Bardem, was the villain in Skyfall. And with this news, I thought I'd run a survey on a slow news day, to get your thoughts on what black actresses you think might be on that short list that Cruz is at the top of - or what black actresses you'd like to see on »

The news on Tuesday that the 39-year-old Penelope Cruz might be selected to be the next "Bond girl" was met with article after article stressing that, if chosen, she would be the oldest-ever woman to play such a role.
This approach is rather galling--especially when you consider how ancient some men who play opposite women who could be their daughters are--but many people hailed the news. On "Good Morning America," Robin Roberts crowed, "An age-appropriate Bond girl? Fabulous!"
For some reason, "Today" chose to take a different tack, asking its team of "Professionals" if Cruz was "too old" for the part:
The show also tweeted about it:
Is Penelope Cruz too old to be a Bond girl at age 39? The #Professionals just weighed in. What do you think?
-- Today(@todayshow) June 4, 2013
The "Today" crew all agreed that Cruz was, in fact, not too old to romance the 45-year-old Daniel Craig »
