Tom Cruise went shirtless for his Father's Day celebrations in Malibu, where he joined his son, Connor Cruise, for a stand-up paddleboarding session. Tom wasn't the only famous dad to spend the day with his son - see how all the other stars celebrated Father's Day. Tom's latest outing with Connor comes after they joined the Beckham family in the stands at an La Kings playoff game late last month. Tom may have more time on his hands to dedicate to his kids since he recently dropped out of Warner Bro.'s Man From U.N.C.L.E., which is to be directed by Guy Ritchie. Man of Steel star Henry Cavill is reportedly in the running to replace him in the classic spy series film. View Slideshow › »

Henry Cavill Superman: Man of Steel vs. Superman movies of years past [See previous post: "Man of Steel Trailing Original Iron Man in Ticket Sales."] As mentioned in our previous posts, the $225 million-budgeted Man of Steel grossed an estimated $113.08 million this past weekend, including $9 million from Thursday midnight screenings. Directed by Zack Snyder, the 2013 Superman reboot stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent aka Superman. (Photo: Henry Cavill in Man of Steel.) Released in late June 2006, Bryan Singer’s $270 million-budgeted Superman Returns, starring Brandon Routh as Superman, debuted with $52.53 million, or about $64 million today. Even taking into account that Superman Returns lacked the box-office-boosting advantage of 3D surcharges, Man of Steel is obviously a much bigger hit than its immediate predecessor. Superman Returns eventually reached $200.08 million in North America, plus a slightly more modest $191 million internationally. Man of Steel will not only easily surpass Superman Returns at the domestic box office, but it’ll also earn at the very least twice as much as Superman Returns internationally. »

Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel boasts an interesting cast – it features Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and, perhaps most importantly, Michael Shannon as General Zod. We know those people will all pull off magnificent performances, so I’m not really worried about them. The big question mark is none other than Supes himself — Henry Cavill.
Are we about to witness the birth of a new A-Lister? It’s far too early to make an assessment on the guy’s situation, but he must be biting his nails right about now. Man of Steel will definitely be a commercial success, no doubt about that. Despite our own Jonathan Lack’s positive review though, the film is getting a slightly mixed critical reception. Will critics save or doom Cavill?
There, there, don’t start panicking just yet, Henry. There’s 15 other actors who starred in insanely »

‘One small town pawn shop. One big time wild ride.’ Long time no update, but good news! The R-rated regular violent redneck action comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles has finally debuted its poster and trailer, courtesy of Et. The trailer below looks fairly promising and among impressive all-male cast Brendan Fraser steels the show bearing a slight resemblance to Elvis, the King of Rock and Roll. A country version of a Guy Ritchie heist film (down in the dirty South) has plenty of drug use, gun play and strangeness, but it is one hell of a ride. The star-studded cast includes Paul Walker, Norman Reedus, Matt »

Looks like you can get your regular violent redneck action comedy fix next month as Wayne Kramer's Pawn Shop Chronicles is set to debut, bringing all the crazy antics you'd expect. With a terrific line up of stars, including Paul Walker, Norman Reedus, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lukas Haas, Thomas Jane, Elijah Wood, Matt Dillon, DJ Qualls, Chi McBride, Rachelle Lefevre, and, uh, Ashlee Simpson, this looks like a hillbilly version of a Guy Ritchie heist pic.

The funk legend revealed to The Sun that the Queen of Pop was irked he didn't proposition her while the two worked together on her chart-topping 1984 album, "Like A Virgin."
“I was standing at an elevator when she goes, ‘Why don’t you want to f**k me?’" Rodgers told The Sun about the alleged interaction. “I was like, ‘What did you just say to me?’ She was wondering why I had not propositioned her. She couldn’t understand that. It was like, ‘Everybody wants me.'"
“One time I slept with a really beautiful artist I was working with and it was a really wrong thing to do. So, I didn’t work like that," he added. “I grew as close to Madonna »

This week’s UK release of the critically roasted Blood – a new thriller starring Paul Bettany and Stephen Graham (filmed, incidentally, in my home town) and the significantly more well-received Stone Roses documentary Made of Stone directed by Shane Meadows – who is usually known for his rough and realistic portrayals of working-class misery – prompted me to delve back into the archives of tough, raw British cinema. Meadows’ filmography consists of some fine work, most notably the pitch-black revenge thriller Dead Man’s Shoes (2004) and the occasionally brilliant coming-of-age drama This Is England (2006), and Paul Bettany has a history of playing volatile Cockney gangsters (see Gangster No.1 (2000) for his most harrowing depiction of a common man inducted into a life of crime). But these coldly convincing vignettes of blue-collar melancholy – which vary from complex character studies of adolescence to edgy accounts of working class anti-heroes in desperate situations – are by no means a thing of modernity. »

★★★☆☆ It's not often that you see a new UK theatrical release that's already had a sequel made and circulated in its native country. Knowing that this is part one does cause concern that it will have an open-ended finale, but it's also encouraging to know that this initial offering was evidently good enough to have earned a second bite of the cherry. As such, Daniel Espinosa's Easy Money (Snabba cash, 2010) doesn't disappoint. Joel Kinnaman plays Johan Westlund, a charismatic young student who leads a double life, convincing his bourgeois friends that he is from a privileged background, attracting the interest of the beautiful Sophie (Lisa Henni).
In order to help fund his lie and his new way of life, Westlund becomes a drug runner for fugitive Jorge (Matias Varela), who is on the run from both the police and the Serbian mafia, led by the brutal Mrado (Dragomir Mrsic »

You almost won’t recognize the season premiere of the last season of Burn Notice, because Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) has grown a beard and seemingly found himself in a Guy Ritchie film, bare-knuckle boxing and being hit with an uppercut, laying him out parallel to the ground mid-air as he falls flat on the floor. Minutes in, the details of the CIA deal Michael made to keep his friends and family clean of his mess, are cross-stitched with the present day events. Michael’s new handler, Andrew Strong (Jack Coleman, Heroes) has some personal crusade against a terrorist, Randall Burke (Adrian Pasdar, Heroes) and needs the old Michael Westen to resurface, “The one that got the job done no matter what.”
This is a mission that’s sure to lead to more trouble for Michael but he’s at the end of his rope and the only types of »

What a difference a little Superman can make. With Man Of Steel looking amazing, Henry Cavill is suddenly being associated with tons of projects. One in particular was recently vacated by Tom Cruise and costars The Lone Ranger himself, Armie Hammer. Last week's rumor is this week's reality as Man Of Steel star Henry Cavill has confirmed that he is replacing Cruise in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. remake for director Guy Ritchie. Cavill originally auditioned for the Hammer part and now is taking »

Vinnie Jones recently played the bad guy, Sebastian Moran on CBS’s Elementary. I know the former professional footballer best as Bullet Tooth Tony from the cult classic Guy Ritchie crime film, Snatch. He also played the Juggernaut for X-Men: The Last Stand.
It comes as no surprise that on Psych, Jones will play a “brutal British criminal”. I mean, those three words may as well be the actor’s middle name.
Olivia d’Abo was a Wonder Years star once upon a time as Kevin Arnold’s older sister. TV Line reported on her impressive new role as a “master infiltrator” and number two in Vinnie Jones’ criminal organization. How fiendish! Speaking of villainy, d’Abo also »

With the exception of Guy Ritchie.s Sherlock Holmes movies, Jude Law doesn.t often get to showcase any comedic abilities he has. Of everything that Steven Soderbergh.s Side Effects was, a laugh riot wasn.t one of them. Via press release, Fox Searchlight Pictures announced they.ve acquired the North American rights to the dark comedy crime caper Dom Hemingway. The film was written and directed by Richard Shepard (The Hunting Party), who last directed some recent episodes of Girls. It stars Law as the titular character, a safecracker known for his profane and dangerous ways. He gets out of prison after a 12-year stint and goes off with a partner, played by Richard E. Grant (Withnail & I), to get what.s owed to him by his boss (Demián Bichir) for not ratting him out while in jail. After a near-death experience, he tries to reconnect with »
Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who and whoever takes the helm of the Tardis next will have big shoes to fill - 30-year-old Smith is not just a brilliant actor but also a fantastic ambassador for the BBC's sci-fi smash and his clear love for what he was doing was always evident on screen.
Digital Spy will be bringing you more platitudes and tributes to Matt in the week ahead, but we all know that - just as the recently-dumped can console themselves by embracing single life again - so the only way to get over losing one Doctor is to dream who the next one might be...
With the bookies already touting odds on a number of unlikely (Helen Mirren) or impractical (Benedict Cumberbatch) choices, we'd like to offer a look at a few actors who actually fit the bill and might stand a shot of becoming the 12th Doctor. »
Matt Smith, the Eleventh, current, and arguably best, Doctor in Doctor Who, has just announced that he's leaving the role. This news is fairly self-explanatory, and as a dramatic and sure to rock the fanbase as when, in the recent Season 7 finale...something big and dramatic happened. (Seriously, I don't know what it is; I haven't watched it yet. No spoilers please...or for the previous seven episodes, for that matter. Or for anything, really, since not everyone will have seen everything, no matter how popular a particular thing is, so you can never assume.)
If you want to know at what point he's scheduled to leave the show, click on the link. It's probably not a spoiler, but just in case you don't want to know. (The news of his departure itself, while hypothetically potentially a spoiler, will no doubt be everywhere over the next few days, so it's essentially not. »
While the idea of director Steven Soderbergh and long-time collaborator George Clooney doing an adaptation of the 1964-68 TV spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. sounded like a potentially good idea, once Clooney dropped out for medical reasons and Soderbergh flew the coop soon after, perhaps Warner Brothers should have just acknowledged that a reboot of the show should’ve been put into turnaround, where it could eventually pass from executives thoughts. But that seemed not to enter the WB’s mind, so they shuffled the movie to British director Guy Ritchie, who has successfully made two Sherlock Holmes films for the studio, so I’m guessing they thought he could do the same to what is, though, a distinctly American TV series. Sherlock Holmes has wide appeal, yet the U.N.C.L.E. franchise ran its course before the end of »
Wow, this "Man from U.N.C.L.E." project has already so many dramas even before production begins! But we may have a bit of a good news.
Henry Cavill aka "Man of Steel" has entered negotiations to replace Tom Cruise in "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." Guy Ritchie is set to direct and co-produce the adaptation of the 1960s TV series about the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) and their agents who fight the evil Thrush.
I'm interviewing the actor this weekend for "Man of Steel" so I'll ask him to confirm this story, stay tuned »
What is Casting Couch? It’s a daily casting column that’s currently shocked and appalled that a mainstream actor has signed on to help legitimize Tom Six’s miserable Human Centipede series of body horror films. Read on to find out who has lowered themselves to delivering poop jokes. Paul Thomas Anderson’s next project, Inherent Vice, is an ensemble crime piece that’s going to see him working with a huge cast of talented actors. Already the film is looking to feature names like Joaquin Phoenix, Sean Penn, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short, and the list goes on. The latest news is that he’s looking to add Josh Brolin to the list, who, due to his recent acting comeback that got kickstarted by his starring in the Coen brothers’ No Country For Old Men, is no stranger to working with top tier directors. Brolin »

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.: We just heard that Tom Cruise dropped out of the big-screen version of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., but Warner Bros. and director Guy Ritchie are moving quickly to replace him. Henry Cavill, the titular star of Man of Steel, is now in talks to play the lead role; he would star opposite Armie Hammer, the titular star of The Lone Ranger, and Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair). Production is scheduled to begin this fall. [Variety] X-Men: Days of Future Past: We love director Bryan Singer, not least because he keeps sharing photos from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past. His latest pic is captioned simply "Craft Service," but the uniform is marked with the logo for Trask Industries, which refers to an antimutant character named Boris Trask, played by...

With the news coming out that Tom Cruise has dropped out of the big screen reboot of the 60s show The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Warner Bros. and director Guy Ritchie are moving quickly to find his replacement. The Superman of Man of Steel has been reportedly offered the role of Napoleon Solo, who was originally portrayed by Robert Vaughan in the TV series. WB has already entered into talks with Henry Cavill, but for the part of Soviet agent Illya Kuryakin, opposite him. The role of Rusian spy Kuryakin – played by David McCallum originally – then went to Armie Hammer, who is still attached, »
