Quite a few critics' best-of lists have implied 2011 was a pretty average year for popcorn movies. Throw in the fact that 2012 is set to deliver The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus and the first part of The Hobbit, and it doesn't augur well for an annual round-up of the past 12 months' top fanboy-friendly films. But while there has been nothing this year to compare with the head-spinning brio of 2010's Inception or the epic, flawed genius of 2009's Watchmen, the overall quality of fantasy, sci-fi and comic book fare has definitely been on the way up.
That's not to say we haven't had our fair share of distinctly non-festive turkeys. Green Lantern was an almighty mess dogged by a ropey script, dodgy CGI, and wooden chemistry between Ryan Reynolds and just about everyone else on screen. »

Legendary film actress Meryl Streep was celebrated at the "34th Annual Kennedy Center Honors" in a star-studded tribute that aired Tuesday night on CBS. In one of the evening's most lively moments, Streep's "Devil Wears Prada" co-stars, led by Anne Hathaway, sang "She's Me Pal" as a tribute to Streep. Hathaway displayed the depth of her friendship, vocal chops and impressive flexibility by dropping into a split mid-way through the routine.
As Streep, who was smiling widely and was at times emotional throughout the evening, looked on from the balcony, Hathaway sang the line, "Her heart is as big as a ham," and dropped to the floor in a split. Her form was perfect, albeit painful-looking, and after a few seconds in the pose she jokingly motioned for help from Kevin Kline, Stanley Tucci and Emily Blunt. After picking her up by her arms, they joined the actress, who's been compared to a young Streep, »

The wait was certainly worth her while -- Emily is the face of Yves Saint Laurent's 'Opium' fragrance. Emily Blunt tries to put up a confident front when telling the UK's Telegraph about her new Ysl sponsorship, saying, "I'd been asked to do a couple of things but none were as classy as this. And I got to work with a leopard." But her true humble personality shines through when she admits that she has no idea how she got so lucky as to be chosen for the coveted role. When asked why she thinks she was picked, Emily jokingly responds: "There was no one else? They made a mistake, a terrible mistake." It's nice to know that celebs pick and choose their spokesperson roles carefully, not taking the first thing that comes along with a paycheck. Emily definitely held out for an excellent position -- previous Ysl Opium »

Emily Blunt has joked that Yves Saint Laurent made a "terrible mistake" by hiring her for an advertising campaign. The British actress appears in a commercial for the company's Opum fragrance, but she doesn't think she pulled off the French look. "God, I'm so un-French in that trailer," she told the Daily Telegraph. When asked why she thought she was invited to appear in the campaign, she said: "I don't know. I've no idea. Perhaps there was no-one else? They made a mistake, a terrible mistake." (more) »

We normally hate it when gorgeous actresses joke about being less than stunningly beautiful, but we like Emily Blunt so much, we’d settle for shaking her incredibly toned shoulders while screaming, “Snap out of it!” “God, I’m so un-French in that trailer,” Blunt moaned to Britain’s The Telegraph about her Ysl Opium ad, saying “I don’t know. I’ve no idea” why the fashion house hired her and declaring, “They made a mistake, a terrible mistake.” What what wha? We know your last role was in The Muppet Movie, but pull yourself together, woman!
As for the commercial itself, let’s be honest: Emily’s cleavage alone makes the entire country of France seem obsolete. They probably didn’t even use a trained cheetah; it just saw Blunt’s amazing hair and was stunned into domestication! Don’t take our word for it; check out Emily »

If you've not read the book, you'll need to know that this is the story of a Yemeni sheik (Amr Waked) who has the visionary plan to introduce - you guessed it - salmon fishing in the Yemen. Ewan McGregor is Fred Jones, a lowly fisheries scientist in the British government, who thinks the scheme is ludicrous, but has it forced upon him by the Prime Minister's super-keen press secretary Bridget Maxwell (Kristin Scott-Thomas).
On one level it's a satire of spin-centric, media-savvy politics, and on another it's a thoughtful measuring of different belief systems. The emphasis of this trailer, however, seems very much to be on the burgeoning lurrve between McGregor's dull »
