'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl': Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow. 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' review: Mostly an enjoyable romp (Oscar Movie Series) Pirate movies were a Hollywood staple for about three decades, from the mid-'20s (The Sea Hawk, The Black Pirate) to the mid-to-late '50s (Moonfleet, The Buccaneer), when the genre, by then mostly relegated to B films, began to die down. Sporadic resurrections in the '80s and '90s turned out to be critical and commercial bombs (Pirates, Cutthroat Island), something that didn't bode well for the Walt Disney Company's $140 million-budgeted film "adaptation" of one of their theme-park rides. But Neptune's mood has apparently improved with the arrival of the new century. He smiled – grinned would be a more appropriate word – on the Gore Verbinski-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, »

Earlier this week, Dakota Fanning replaced Mia Wasikowska in the currently shooting western "Brimstone," and it looks like that switcheroo has resulted in another project getting a casting shift. Due to scheduling conflicts, Chloe Moretz will now stand in for Dakota Fanning in the Charlize Theron-produced "Brain On Fire." Based on the memoir by Susannah Cahalan, the movie tells the true story of a young woman who unravels into madness. Here's the book synopsis: Read More: Kiera Knightley Climbs 'Everest,' Dakota Fanning Has A 'Brain On Fire,' And More Casting When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she’d gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising »

Bend It Like Beckham The Musical review
It was a film that was the sleeper hit of 2002, opening to pretty much universal acclaim and a very healthy box-office of $76 million worldwide. It was also the film that launched the career of Keira Knightley, propelling her to the international stage and celebrity. Now, 13 years on and Gurinder Chadha’s Bend It Like Beckham makes it to the London stage. Featuring music by Howard Goodall, lyrics by Charles Hart, and a book by Chadha and Paul Mayeda Berges, Bend It Like Beckham The Musical has its world premiere in the West End’s legendary Phoenix Theatre.
Set in Southall and its surrounding areas, Bend It Like Beckham The »

The task of transforming a popular movie into a stage musical is a tough challenge that has brought successes (Billy Elliot), and disappointments (Made in Dagenham), so Gurinder Chadha's idea of bringing her 2002 film Bend It Like Beckham to the West End was an intriguing one.
The majority of the feel and the plot of the original film remains in the musical. Set in suburban west London, it focuses on Jess, who worships David Beckham and has a desire to play football that doesn't fit in with her Punjabi Indian parents' plans.
She secretly plays for her local women's football team and soon falls in love with coach Joe, which creates a difficult love triangle with her best friend Jules, a role which helped transform Keira Knightley into an international star.

New-parent glow! Keira Knightley and her husband, James Righton, welcomed their baby daughter in May, and it seems to have brought the first-time parents even closer together.

Headey opted out of going naked for the harrowing six-minute sequence "for several reasons", one of which was so she could fully focus on the emotions in her performance.
The actress also wasn't involved in the casting process for her double, adding: "I was like, 'Listen guys, she happens to have a beautiful body, but I don't do casting'. If somebody is brave enough to do this, I applaud it."
We've found 11 other actors and actresses who've spoken candidly about choosing a body double instead of baring their naked bits on the big screen.
And you may find some film scenes quite surprising (it wasn't really Kevin Costner frolicking naked in a waterfall!).

Nb: the following contains spoilers for Jurassic World.
For Universal, the success of Jurassic World is the $500m pay-off to a story which began well over a decade ago. Work on a third Jurassic Park sequel originally began after the release of Joe Johnston’s coolly-received Jurassic Park III way back in 2001, yet the film languished in a pre-production quagmire as writer after writer seemingly struggled to crack the story.
William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom Of Heaven) was the first screenwriter to step up to the plate, announced at a time when Keira Knightley was reportedly in the running for a major role. Around that time, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough were also thought to be returning to their respective roles of Ian Malcom and John Hammond. »
Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife, Sophie Hunter, welcomed their first child. "Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter are delighted to announce the arrival of their beautiful son," the actor's representative reportedly told People in a statement. The rep continued in the statement: "We would kindly ask everyone to respect the family’s privacy during these next few precious weeks." The couple wed on Valentine's Day on the Isle of Wight in England and gave birth to their son four months following the nuptials and a week before Father's Day.

Gotham and The Flash survived after debuting last year, but Constantine sadly did not. There are a lot of reasons for that, and despite the best efforts of fans and those involved with the show, a second season won't be happening on NBC or anywhere else for that matter. Star Matt Ryan has now taken to Twitter to thank viewers for their support (he's about to romance Keira Knightley on Broadway, so try not to feel too sorry for him), while production designer Dave Blass tweeted a photo on Wednesday of the set being torn down. Are you guys going to miss Constantine? Sad news. Thank you #Hellblazers for your support u truly r the best, and thank you to everyone involved in the show. Memories made forever — Matt Ryan (@mattryanreal) June 10, 2015 Very disappointed that we are not continuing this journey,will miss playing john. You guys never gave up, »

For some starlets, slipping into a white wedding dress isn't just something reserved for a trip down the aisle. And if you have your doubts, then look no further than Kristen Wiig, who wore an actual bridal gown by Delphine Manivet to the Golden Globes this year. And Keira Knightley loved her Chanel Haute Couture bridal frock so much that she recycled it for two separate red carpet occasions. Kate Hudson's never met a romantic ivy number that she didn't just love (or look phenomenal wearing), but her glamorous Marchesa gown was even more bridal than ever. And while they too were nowhere near an aisle, Allison Williams and Olivia Wilde (in Dolce & Gabbana and Reem Acra, respectively) could've doubled as »

Sure, sure, scaling Mount Everest and surviving is one heck of a feat. But have you seen the magnificent beards on Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke and Jake Gyllenhaal?

In 1996, eight climbers lost their lives as they struggled to reach the top of the world's highest peak, Mount Everest. Jon Krakauer told their story in the bestselling book "Into Thin Air," which Baltasar Kormakur ("2 Guns") has turned into the fall release "Everest." (Below, watch the gripping trailer.)
