If Kristen Wiig's appearance in that Lifetime melodrama "A Deadly Adoption" is any indication, she'll be weirding us out for years to come. Fortunately, we think we can single out her weirdest moment on film so far. It's coming to Netflix in August. "Welcome to Me" (August 6) In the short time since Kristen Wiig left "SNL" in 2012, she's starred in a host of movies. Some are quaint indies (like "The Skeleton Twins") and some were heartfelt farces ("Bridesmaids"), but "Welcome to Me" is perhaps her most provocative and strange feature. Wiig plays a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder who uses a financial windfall to pay for her own talk show. Is it her finest hour? No, but it sees her costarring with the formidable Linda Cardellini, which is a treat. "Two Days, One Night" (August 11) The surprise Best Actress nomination of 2014 that devastated the Jennifer Aniston fan community. Yes to Marion Cotillard! »

Essentially, they’re all female Hollywood A-listers who are able to bare all to the camera whenever they please without it going on to “define” their careers.
A lot of other actresses haven’t been quite so lucky in this regard, though.
Sometimes a nude scene is rendered so iconic that it’s impossible for anybody to look at an actress without recalling it, or the scene in question is the first thing that springs to mind whenever anybody utters their name. In some cases, these actresses have gone on to do other work which has allowed them to break free from the legacy of a famous nude scene, but in a lot of cases it’s proven impossible to escape…
Here, then, are 9 actresses who – for »

One of the last Enigma coding machines that the Nazis used to send encrypted messages during the Second World War has sold at auction.
The device was valued between £50,000 and £70,000 but sold for a whooping £149,000, Sotheby's told BBC News.
It's thought that the recent Imitation Game movie helped boost the Enigma's value, although it doesn't beat the $269,000 (£172,350) paid for another model in April.
The Nazis believed the Enigma machines were impossible to crack with 159,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible settings.
However, British scientist Alan Turing developed a machine of his own, the Bombe, to decipher the codes.
During the war, around 100,000 Engimas were in use but the Nazis destroyed most of them as they retreated.
A new trailer for the film Everest was released the other day, and it looks like it might be that rare “must-see” IMAX movie. I know you’ve probably heard that line before, but this one looks like it could deliver some definite jaw-dropping moments (and maybe even a bit of drama too). Take a look for yourself.
Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.

I recently wrote a review of Star Wars: Dark Disciple and I just wanted to clarify a point I made regarding the Jedi in general, and why they are an obstacle a reader of this era of the Star Wars universe just has to accept to have a chance of really being able to get into any story. Just as a quick recap, I really enjoyed Dark Disciple for the relationship aspect of Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos, thought it was both economical and effective, but didn’t like the actual plot beyond them, the third act, and the vast majority of what felt like mandated special guest appearances.
I still enjoyed Dark Disciple more than any of the previous Star Wars novels set in the new canon.
Back to the Jedi, and specifically the Jedi Council, which I wanted to clarify myself on. I don’t think it »

'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, »

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.

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.
