8 February 2017 9:01 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Think having a famous face is the key to a fruitful dating life? Guess again. Scoring a high-profile film role or having legions of Instagram followers doesn’t necessarily lead to special treatment from Cupid – although if it did, we’d bet a slew of Hollywood A-listers would be set for life on the relationship front.

From Tom Hiddleston to Jennifer Lawrence, these 11 stars opened up about how their successful careers have affected their dating lives.

Ellen Ripley, Alien, and the rise of the modern Ripleys

5 February 2017 7:15 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jennifer Leigh Williamson Feb 16, 2017

How Star Wars, Rogue One, Stranger Things and more are marking the rise of a new wave of Ripleys...

“Is that the only flamethrower?”

Most of us have long heard the fun fact that the role of Ellen Ripley in Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece Alien was originally written for a man. Like Eric Stoltz filming for four weeks as Marty in Back To The Future, it's one of those fun Hollywood tidbits that seems ridiculous now as Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley has become one of the greatest heroes in movie history.

Going on to star in four (rumoured to soon be five) Alien movies, Weaver has been nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA for her portrayal of this iconic character and its easy to see why. In a world of damsels, love interests and totty, Ripley is a woman: a well rounded, intelligent, confident, »

Powerless Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘Wayne or Lose’

3 February 2017 12:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the first episode of the new DC sitcom Powerless

Superhero movies and shows aren’t the only culprits but collateral damage is real. Nobody talks about it. The broken windows. The buildings blown up. It’s all tucked away in the unspoken contract we’ve signed with the networks and studios. Give us more stunts and we’ll never speak of the people and stuff taken out along the way.

But, given we’re a culture that loves our material objects, how realistic is forgiveness? We may not have the authority to complain about knocked down wires and transportation delays, when our lives are mostly intact, but when has that ever stopped us before?

It’s this silent resentment against superheroes that Powerless acknowledges in its opening sequence. Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) is taking the train to her new job at Wayne Security when Jack O’ Lantern damages the tracks. »
