When Penélope Cruz isn’t busy making out with Scientologists, palling around with Pedro Almodóvar, or being addicted to breastfeeding, she’s apparently writing and directing sexy ads for Agent Provocateur. Cruz’s flesh-baring video for the British lingerie brand features a group of models in the desert and one very helpless man. We’ll let you uncover the threadbare narrative for yourself — and we’re taking bets on whether or not the women perform an aerobics routine or actually dance. Don’t blink and miss the Cruz cameo, too. You can catch the Spanish actress in the upcoming Louis Leterrier film Grimsby with Isla Fisher and Rebel Wilson — cowritten by Sacha Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham. [via Design...

Are you a fan of "The Trip" or "The Trip to Italy?" Welsh comedian Rob Brydon costars in these Michael Winterbottom road trip comedies with Steve Coogan, and both are hilarious. There's something authentic and yet well-performed about the setup--two old actor friends go along on a food trip, competing for the attention of various tablemates and women and each other. Sometimes they annoy each other--and us--but more often they amuse. Brydon did so well last year hosting the annual BAFTA La's Britannia awards--which are well attended by various awards contenders every fall--that the BAFTAs are bringing him back for a second time around. This year's pre-Halloween ceremony will be on October 30 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and broadcast by BBC America on November 2. Last year's show honorees were Kathryn Bigelow, George Clooney, Sacha Baron Cohen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Sir Ben Kingsley, along »

The 42-year-old actor was spotted wearing an England shirt and a red and white novelty hat while sporting an uneven fringe and long sideburns, as he shot scenes in Cape Town.
The Malay quarter was transformed into a city in Chile during filming of a fictional football match between the South American country and England.
Baron Cohen and Pitch Perfect star Wilson were seen kissing tenderly on the lips, surrounded by fellow football supporters cheering and waving flags while milling around after the match.
The Louis Leterrier-directed spy spoof stars Mark Strong as a black ops agent who goes on the run with his long lost hooligan brother (Baron Cohen). The Borat star co-wrote the screenplay along with Phil Johnston and Peter Baynham.

Ray Willmott: What does the Legend of Hercules mean to you? Is it a Greek legend you’ve always enjoyed? Are there other Greek legends that you enjoy?
Scott Adkins: To be honest, I haven’t seen any of the previous Hercules films or the TV series either. I was a fan of Clash of the Titans and Jason and the Argonauts. You know, the old Ray Harryhausen films. But now seemed like the right time to do another, absolutely. After all, Hercules is the original super hero.
Rw: You’ve tackled various physical roles over the years, from The Expendables, Bourne and Universal Soldier to this. I just wondered whether you prepared any differently in terms of dietry requirements and work out regime?
Sa: In this film, I play the young king and then the old king. »

The sequel to Disney’s hit 2010 film Alice In Wonderland has begun principal photography. Alice In Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass will reunite Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter whilst introducing comedic funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen. Fans will also be pleased to hear that Michael Sheen will be back as the ever late white rabbit.
The film is set to be directed by The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted writer and director, James Bobin. Based on Lewis Carroll’s time travelling ‘Through The Looking Glass’ story, this film will follow Alice’s journey back to Underland and beyond. According to sources, Sacha Baron Cohen is set to play a character called ‘Time’, a possible villian perhaps?

"Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass," is now shooting in England, and once again features Mia Wasikowska (Alice), Johnny Depp (the Mad Hatter), Helena Bonham Carter (the Red Queen), and Anne Hathaway (the White Queen), as well as the voices of Alan Rickman (the Blue Caterpillar), Stephen Fry (the Cheshire Cat), and Michael Sheen (the White Rabbit). Joining the ensemble are Rhys Ifans, playing the Mad Hatter's father, Zanik Hightopp, and Sacha Baron Cohen, who's playing a villain named Time.
An official press release from Disney notes that the film is "an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland-and back in Time," where Alice is on a quest to help the Mad Hatter.

The newest story surrounding Ghostbusters 3 is an interesting one as it has Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) directing, but not the current script, but intead a completely new one from scratch, this one focusing on a female group of ghostbusters. There is no deal yet, but Feig is said to be interested and even tweeted recently, "Interesting how making a movie with men in the lead roles is normal but making a movie with women in the lead roles is a 'gimmick.'" Far from a commitment, but definitely showing a sign of interest. Considering Feig is again working with Melissa McCarthy on Spy, I think it goes without saying she'd be a top choice for the film should it come to pass and a few other great possibilities could include Rose Byrne, Emily Blunt and I'd love to see "SNL"'s Kate McKinnon get a movie role such as this. »

At long last, the sequel to Disney’s massively successful, if narratively weak, Alice in Wonderland is starting to roll cameras, with James Bobin replacing Tim Burton in the director’s chair. It took a suprisingly long time for this next chapter of the planned franchise to get off the ground, considering the first film broke $1 billion at the box office, but a press release indicates that filming is now underway.
Officially titled Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up finds the original actors returning to their roles, with a bevy of new stars joining both the live-action and voice casts. What the sequel is exactly about is still foggy, but the story is said to “revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time.”

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is one of the director's weakest efforts, but it's also by far his highest grossing. The movie made over $1 billion worldwide at the box office, and I'm surprised it's taken so long for a sequel to start moving into production. But four years later, production has begun on Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass with James Bobin (The Muppets) in the director's chair and the original actors returning along with new additions to both the live-action and the voice cast. Plot details are scarce, but the story will "revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time." Hit the jump for the press release, which includes the full cast and who they're playing as well as the production's key contributors behind the camera.

I don’t think I know anyone who saw Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” and thought it was really good. Some kinda liked it, but most were pretty “meh” about it. Of course, the 2010 film starring Johnny Depp went on to earn a whopping $1 billion in worldwide box office anyway, with over 2/3rds of that coming from overseas fans who went gaga for its 3D. And so, Disney has officially announced the beginning of production on the sequel, to be called “Alice In Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.” This time there is no Tim Burton behind the camera. Instead, James Bobin (“The Muppets,” “Muppets Most Wanted”) will take over directing chores, with Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen returning in the cast. The plot for the sequel, we’re told, will revisit “Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale »

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen »
Disney met with some success in their live-action version of Alice in Wonderland (with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter), and since the film released, talk of a sequel has been on-going. Now, it's finally moved into production as the cast and crew have gathered together in anticipation of it's May 2016 release. Disney announced cameras have started rolling with a new cast list confirming both old and new members of the cast coming to the production.
I wasn't all that thrilled with Alice in Wonderland when it released. Not that it was a bad movie, I just didn't find it all that special or great. So it's tough to muster up much enthusiasm for this sequel, despite the impressive cast coming back for it. From the press release:

Alice is returning to Wonderland—er, Underland—this week. Put another way, the James Bobin directed follow-up to Tim Burton's 2010 "Alice in Wonderland" is starting principal photography. The film promises to be "an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time." Titled, as one might expect, "Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass," the sequel reunites many stars of Burton's first film including Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. Also returning, at least in voice form, are Stephen Fry as the Cheshire Cat, Alan Rickman as the Blue Caterpillar, Timothy Spall as Bayard, and Michael Sheen as the White Rabbit. Naturally, the sequel is also adding new cast members as well. These include the likes Rhys Ifans and Sacha Baron Cohen. The former is playing Zanik Hightopp, »
