Although Supergirl, Catwoman and Elektra are movies that exist, there are times when we wish they didn’t. To be honest, the ‘perfect’ female-headlined superhero movie is still the stuff of our cinematic dreams. Saying that, TV’s Agent Carter provided us with a brilliant example of bringing a female comic book character to the small screen earlier this year, which hopefully Hollywood will learn a lot from going forward.
Of course, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will be joining their respective cinematic universes soon, with Supergirl getting a pop at small screen success too. It looks like female comic book heroes will be getting the attention they deserve in the live action realm, finally.
This isn’t the first time the powers-that-be in Hollywood have tried to launch a slate of female superheroes, »

There’s no better way to reinvent your look than freshening up your hairstyle and this spring it’s all about easy to manage natural looking styles.
The bob haircut is the reigning champ this season with countless stars like Kim Kardashian, Margot Robie, and Lilly Collins ditching their long locks for this chopped trend. Go for an edgier take on the classic style with an asymmetrical cut like Rosamund Pike and Taylor Swift. The asymmetrical bob has one side longer than the other, so style your hair with a deep part to the side and add volume with tousled waves.

Take the plunge like Scarlett Johansson and Kayley Cuoco with a boyish pixie. This drastic cut is low maintenance and is perfect if you are looking to show off your bone structure. It’s all about short sides and slightly longer strands on the top. Be a rebel »
Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

Awards season has transformed into pretty much a 12 month a year event (outside of maybe a few weeks in June) which means there is news to report about some of the more anticipated prestige players of 2015. Fox Searchlight announced today that John Crowley's acclaimed romantic drama "Brooklyn" will hit theaters in platform release on Nov. 6. The tearjerker was one of the big surprises at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival where it screened out of competition (read my review here). Stars Saoirse Ronan, Michael Zegen, Domhnall Gleeson and Julie Walters are all potential acting category contenders and Nick Hornby delivers another wonderful screenplay adaptation after last year's "Wild." Screenings at Telluride or Toronto seem likely, but a slot at the New York Film Festival just makes too much sense, doesn't it? Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl" also found a release date today as Focus Features announced it will open in New »

Hot on the heels of Eddie Redmayne’s Oscar win for his role as Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything,” Working Title Films has released the first image of the actor playing a lesser-known pioneer.
Redmayne portrays Danish artist Einar Wegener, later known as Lili Elbe — one of the first people to undergo a sex-change operation — in “The Danish Girl.”
Redmayne told the Daily Mail that he worked with his “Theory of Everything” movement director Alexandra Reynolds to prepare for the role, “observing the minutiae of feminine physicality.”
