Well this is certainly a side of Ellen Page that we've never seen before! The Canadian actress was just named one of five women "who totally rule" in W magazine's The New Royals issue. The 27-year-old star is giving major Annie Hall vibes on her cover of the fashion mag, dressed in a plaid suit, striped tie and black floppy fedora hat. But it's her inside photo that is what's slightly surprising… Page is seen dressed in very little clothing—a pair of Calvin Klein underwear and a black Paule Ka cape, to be exact—and showing off her washboard abs. W asked the brunette beauty about some of her more difficult roles and how she prepares herself for »

This weekend marks the limited and VOD release of God Help the Girl, a musical from Stuart Murdoch, best known as the lead singer of Belle and Sebastian. God Help the Girl, which emerged out of a musical side project for Murdoch, follows three friends who start a band during a summer in Glasgow. It has, yes, been described as “twee,” a word now practically synonymous with Belle and Sebastian.

Running Time: 84 minutes.
Synopsis: A twenty-something comedienne’s unplanned pregnancy forces her to confront the realities of independent womanhood for the first time.

Universal Pictures ensured Katherine Heigl’s one-night stand resulted in a relationship and a baby in Knocked Up and 20th Century Fox had teenager Ellen Page give her baby up for adoption, rather than choose the alternative, in Juno. With the backing of independent production companies Rooks Nest Entertainment, Sundial Pictures and Votiv Films, Robespierre has been allowed to explore the »

Mackenzie says: "I’m trying to get Jack involved in that. And I can’t say that’s official, but Jack and I have been in discussion on that. But not as the Robert the Bruce character, as a secondary character, but a very, very sort of close second." [Source: Collider]

20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the biggest movies of the year, taking in $232 million at the box office, although that tally falls shy of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy ($251 million) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($259 million). However, X-Men: Days of Future Past has earned more globally ($744.6 million) than any other superhero movie this year.
The success of X-Men: Days of Future Past has even impressed Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, even though he had nothing to do with the movie whatsoever. During a recent interview with Empire, Kevin Feige revealed he's been thinking about how that movie helped bring the X-Men franchise back into prominence.
"I've been thinking about Days of Future Past a lot, which I had nothing to do with, in terms of the resurrection of a franchise. I think they did a very good job with that."
He went on to say that, »
