Leighton Meester and Adam Brody secretly got married last month, but this is the first we're seeing of her new rings - see more celebrity engagement rings! Leighton wore a sparkly stone paired with a thin wedding band, just a few weeks after Adam stepped out sporting a gold band on his left hand. The couple, whose engagement was revealed in November, were linked for about a year before becoming husband and wife. Leighton's new bling was on display during a press conference for Of Mice and Men in NYC on Thursday, where she posed with her costars James Franco and Chris O'Dowd. The play, which will begin performances later this month, will serve as each of the trio's Broadway debuts. Of Mice and Men officially opens on April 16 at the Longacre Theatre and will run through July. View Slideshow › »

What a sparkler! Leighton Meester showed off her impressive wedding ring at a press conference for Broadway's "Of Mice and Men," on Thursday in New York. The 27-year-old was joined by costars James Franco and Chris O'Dowd at the event, but her gorgeous new band was definitely the center of attention. The "Gossip Girl" actress secretly tied the knot with "O.C." star Adam Brody last month in a private wedding ... just three months after they went public with their engagement. Leighton has yet to comment on her newly married status, but Adam confirmed the news to a photographer shortly after the cute couple said "I do." The pair first met when they worked together on the film "The Oranges" back in 2011 and will be back together on the big screen soon enough in their new flick, "Life Partners." We think the actress' wedding ring is really simple and beautiful -- what are your thoughts? »

Leighton Meester clearly has that newlywed glow. The 27-year-old beauty, who recently surprised us all by secretly tying the knot with hubby Adam Brody, was all smiles while attending the Of Mice and Men Broadway Press Conference held at the Signature Theatre on Thursday in NYC. Meester was joined by costars James Franco and Chris O'Dowd along with their director Anna D. Shapira and writer Jim Norton to preview the highly anticipated play for the press. And while there was no sign of the former Gossip Girl star's hunky husband, the actress flashed her wedding ring (which appears to be paired with her engagement bling, as most ladies do these days) for the first time since the twosome said "I »

Looking stylish in a black sweater, gray pants, and red heels, the newlywed gave a glimpse of her brand new ring to photographers while sitting with her hands in her lap during the conference. Us Weekly exclusively revealed last month that the Gossip [...] »

Simon James is a ghost. Friends, family, and coworkers meet his every action with complete indifference. He grimly goes through the motions, hoping for recognition that never comes. All of this changes when James Simon arrives.

Magnolia Pictures has released the third trailer for The Double, debuting in theaters and on iTunes/VOD formats May 9. Simon (Jesse Eisenberg) is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams (Mia Wasikowska). He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James (Jesse Eisenberg), serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon's exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon's horror, James slowly starts taking over his life. Check out the latest footage from director Richard Ayoade's comedic thriller, which co-stars Chris O'Dowd, Gemma Chan, Sally Hawkins and Wallace Shawn.
Leighton Meester is playing coy in her latest Instagram photo! The brunette actress hid her wedding ring—and right hand entirely— as she held up a copy of The Grapes of Wrath. "Celebrating John Steinbeck's birthday today w/my @miceandmenbway family," she wrote. She looked bundled up and as cute as ever in a brown knit beanie and green plaid button down shirt. Meester is currently working on her upcoming production of Of Mice and Men starring alongside James Franco and Girls actor Chris O'Dowd. Performances start at the Longacre Theatre on March 19, while the play officially opens up less than a month later on April 16. Meester famously just tied the »
The couple that eats together, stays together. (Or something like that, right?) Just days after it was revealed that Leighton Meester and Adam Brody recently tied the knot in a secret ceremony, the newlyweds were spotted having brunch at Little Market Brasserie in Chicago on Sunday morning. A source told E! News the pretty pair enjoyed a meal that included smoked salmon eggs benedict as well as the restaurant's famed All-Day Grilled Cheese consisting of cheddar, bacon, avocado, a fried egg and sriracha sauce. Meester is currently in the Windy City rehearsing with James Franco and Chris O'Dowd as they prepare to bring Of Mice and Men to Broadway this spring. Last Wednesday, a source »

Further Warning: Bone Alone is not an adult film.
Just a few short weeks ago, this site - along with a few others - received a letter from lawyers purportedly acting for 20th Century Fox, claiming that we'd infringed copyright by posting a what-had-been-debunked synopsis for the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
At the time, I thought that its legal hounds had been a bit over the top. But then I was casually browsing through W H Smith (Halesowen branch) a week or two back, and I saw this...
Half-term brought Warners' Lego film a strong opening weekend, well ahead of George Clooney's men-on-a-mission movie and the Valentine's Day releases
• The Lego Movie – review
• The Monuments Men – review
Animation is the one film genre that regularly supplies big hits without the benefit of character familiarity, with successes from studios such as Fox/Blue Sky (Ice Age), Universal/Illumination (Despicable Me) and Pixar (everything bar the sequels). Even recent Disney successes such as Tangled and Frozen barely traded on audience affection for their fairytale origins. However, the explosive opening numbers for The Lego Movie suggest brand familiarity can be an asset in animation, just as it invariably is in live action.
Opening with £8.05m including £2.16m in previews, The Lego Movie has achieved the strongest start for a non-sequel animation since The Simpsons Movie in July 2007 – although excluding preview figures, it was beaten by the opening weekend of 2009's Up, »

Welcome to the married life, Adam Brody and Leighton Meester. E! News has confirmed that the Hollywood couple got married in a secret ceremony recently, but the lovebirds aren't jetting off to their romantic honeymoon just yet. Instead, they've quickly gotten back to their usual routines. For the first time since their private nuptials went public, Brody was spotted leaving a boxing gym in Los Angeles today. Along with a sweaty T-shirt and some shades, the O.C. stud was also seen strutting his newest accessory on that finger. Meanwhile, E! News has learned that Meester and a few of her fellow cast members from Of Mice and Men, including Chris O'Dowd, attended a comedy show at The Second City in »

Fa Cup Football: Brighton & Hove Albion v Hull City
7pm, BT Sport 1
The last of the fifth-round ties, and a decent opportunity for two of the less-fancied sides to reach the quarter-finals. Championship outfit Brighton have a reasonable cup pedigree in recent years, having twice downed Premier League side Newcastle United in the past two seasons. They'll fancy their chances against a Hull side who may have one eye on their weekend clash against Cardiff City as they attempt to move further clear of the relegation places in the top flight.

Nick Frost's former salsa star tries to impress his boss in this flat-footed romcom
The extremely likable Nick Frost is the driving force behind this rather lumpen British romcom about a one-time salsa champion slipping back into the alligator shoes in pursuit of love. Frost plays world-weary schlub Bruce Garrett, a man whose only passion appears to be lathes and whose social circle comprises a couple of dorks with whom he plays golf and compares recent sexual failures. Upon discovering that his glamorous new boss (Rashida Jones) has a soft spot for salsa herself, Bruce resolves to get his own act back in gear, but to do so he most overcome the spectre of childhood bullying brought on by excessive sequin wearing.
An early scene of Frost forlornly spooning yoghurt from four mini-tubs sets expectations high; he's a sure-footed physical comedian whose deadpan timing finds comic detail in the most mundane action. »

Technophilia will only get you so far, Jonze's near-future parable suggests, as it engineers a blind date between a lonely man and a sentient operating system with no concept of privacy settings – and finds both partners wanting. More successful is the marriage of sci-fi and romantic drama: the focus is more on the heart than the hardware in this soulful, often sorrowful movie.
The Lego Movie (U)
Using pop-culture humour and star voices to overcome blatant product placement, this canny, rapid-fire comedy adventure is like a Matrix parody rendered in CGI plastic bricks.
- Steve Rose
★★★☆☆After having made many an entertaining comedy in his collaborations with Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, Cuban Fury (2014) marks Nick Frost's first bona fide solo outing. Directed by newcomer James Griffiths, it's a feel-good, if predictable offering. Initially conceptualised in a drunken email Frost sent to his producer, the film centres on Bruce Garrett (Frost), a former teen salsa champion who hung up his dance shoes after a bout of bullying. Cut to the present day and Bruce, who has since become overweight, now spends his days working a mundane 9-5 job whilst being bullied by his smarmy colleague Drew (Chris O'Dowd).
- CineVue UK
Formerly an 'unstoppable salsa machine', with 'fire in [his] heels' and fruitful dance partnership with his sister, Bruce Garrett's lost the Latin verve and piled on the pounds after stumbling into adulthood and a dull industrial engineering job. But when a beautiful and endearing American (Rashida Jones) with a passion for the dance floor becomes his new boss, Bruce is determined to ignite his inner salsa flame.
Predictable throughout, this Studio Canal/Film 4/BFI Film Fund production is, crucially, likeable as well. Its talented supporting cast – including Utopia's Alexandra Roach, Sightseers' Steve Oram, Deadwood great Ian McShane and the magnificent Olivia Colman – deserved slightly more from the script than has been delivered by Miranda and Fresh Meat contributor Jon Brown.
But there are enough pithy one-liners, »
