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. »

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt strolled through Lax with their good friend Jimmy Kimmel and his girlfriend Molly McNearney on Tuesday. The foursome all stopped to get cash out before their trip, perhaps off to spend New Year's Eve together somewhere. John and Emily spend some holidays back East with his family in Boston, though this Christmas may have been celebrated at home in La. Jimmy had his own festive fun this year at the expense of some unwitting kids. On Jimmy Kimmel Live the late night host asked parents to give their children a bad present and tape their reactions. The resulting video, I Gave My Kids a Terrible Present quickly went viral on YouTube.

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.

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 »

It didn't take long for Rooney Mara to go from acting in student films at Nyu to giving an on-screen Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) a much-needed reality check in "The Social Network." Being handpicked by David Fincher for the lead in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" is taking Mara to the next level. Plenty of high-profile actresses were vying for the role of Lisbeth Salander, a character beloved by fans of the Stieg Larsson books and original Swedish film trilogy. All eyes are on her as the protagonist of one of the most anticipated films of the season.

Paul Torday's novel was published back in 2006, but it's been caught and reeled in by Lasse Hallstrom and Ewan McGregor, and now a new Salmon Fishing In The Yemen trailer has just gone live at Yahoo.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 »
The first trailer for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen has landed online. Lasse Hallström's romantic comedy drama stars Ewan McGregor as a scientist tasked with introducing salmon to the waters of Yemen for an ambitious Middle-Eastern Sheik. His tasks not as bad as it sounds though, thanks to the fact that the Sheik's legal representative is played by the ever-charming Emily Blunt. The political angle is seemingly just a backdrop for what look like fairly traditional romcom antics, but McGregor and Blunt have a pleasing chemistry and...
