HollywoodNews.com: This time, it’s the best of the best. Of course ‘best’ is a subjective term, so you might want to consider these my ‘favorites’. Despite what everyone likes to whine about at the end of every year, 2011 was in fact one of the better years in a good long time. Maybe it was the effects of the 2007 WGA strike wearing off, maybe it was just dumb luck, but on the whole, movies, especially mainstream movies, were pretty on-spot more often than they weren’t. But just as important, most of the year-end Oscar bait was actually quite good, so this is a year where I don’t have to half-heartedly apologize for having a list filled with movies nobody saw and mainstream pictures that no one admits to liking. Even if it took 1/3 of the year to really get cooking, 2011 was an uncommonly solid »

It’s our seventh favourite movie of 2011. Here’s Mark to explain why Captain America: The First Avenger was such a great superhero film…
Over the past few weeks, Den Of Geek writers have been voting for the films of the year. It's a democratic vote, which inevitably means that things end up in a slightly funny order that not one individual writer is likely to fully agree with. But it's still a fine list. Here's entry number seven…
In the run-up to next summer's long-touted superhero group-hug extravaganza, The Avengers, Marvel Studios has really learnt its lessons. After the sense of disappointment left by Iron Man 2, the next two pieces of the puzzle put far less emphasis on advertising the team-up, and much more into the establishment of the protagonists, and superhero stories that were interesting in their own right.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today announced that 15 films have been selected for consideration for Achievement in Visual Effects for the 84th Academy Awards.
The films are listed below in alphabetical order:
Cowboys & Aliens
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol
In early January, the members of the Academy's Visual Effects Branch Executive Committee, who selected the 15 films, will narrow the list to 10.
All members of the Visual Effects Branch will be invited to view 10-minute excerpts from each of the 10 shortlisted films on Thursday, January 19. Following the screenings, the members will vote to nominate five films for final Oscar consideration. »
Based on the original 1970s TV show, the film adaptation of The Sweeney has got a brilliant cast of UK stars headed up by Hayley Atwell, Ben Drew (a.k.a. Plan B), and all-time classic London gangster/tough-guy, Ray Winstone.
Following on from the first images we saw from the set last month, our very own Colin Hart has just sent over a couple of great photos that give us a look at Winstone on the set of the film, shooting at the moment at Moor House in London. He’s playing one of the two main leads, Detective Inspector Jack Regan, first played by John Thaw back in the ’70s.
According to Wikipedia, the premise for the original show looks a little like this:
“The Sweeney is a 1970s British television police drama focusing on two members of the Flying Squad, a branch of the Metropolitan Police specialising »

Update: Peter Weller, the guy who played Robocop in the iconic movies, is joining the cast of Star Trek 2 in an undisclosed role. However, he does fit the description of what was believed to be the elder villain role.
Dec. 1, 2011 -- Alice Eve (She's Out of My League) and Benecio del Toro (The Wolfman) will join J.J. Abrams' Star Trek 2 in undisclosed roles. What is believed is that Eve's character is new to the franchise and del Toro will play a villain. Eve's character may have an accent: Eve is British and she won the role over fellow Brit Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Aussie Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four). One more major role is said to still be available, it's believed it's another, older villain.

Hayley Atwell regards Ray Winstone as the ''sexiest'' leading man she's ever starred alongside. The 29-year-old actress - who played Chris Evans' onscreen love interest in 'Captain America: The First Avenger' and sees her alter-ego have an affair with Ralph Fiennes' character in 'The Duchess' - loves the 54-year-old star's ''animalistic, primal and alpha male qualities''. The brunette beauty - who stars alongside Ray in forthcoming movie 'The Sweeney' - said: ''One thing I love about Ray is he's so charismatic and full of charm. I play a flying officer who is having an affair with »
The 14-year-old actress looked beautiful in brown as she schmoozed with the shop's namesake Tommy Hilfiger, as well as fellow guests such as Douglas Booth, Dee Ocleppo, Hayley Atwell and Matthew Goode.
Aside from enjoying time in the English capital city, Miss Moretz recently spoke with Asos magazine - as she covers the January 2012 issue - in which she was asked about her experience co-starring alongside Johnny Depp in "Dark Shadows".
To this, Chloe replied, "I can't even begin to tell you how exciting it is to go on set each day with Johnny Depp. I have to pinch myself. How did this happen? How do you end up in a movie with all of these people?"
Plot details, on the other hand, are being held closely under wraps, but expect more details to trickle out as the film edges closer and closer to its imminent production start date.
The film will be released on May 17, 2013.

Though details of her character weren't given, the role is said to be an all new one not previously established in Star Trek canon. Eve beat out Teresa Palmer ("I Am Number Four") and Hayley Atwell ("Captain America: The First Avenger") for the role.
The article adds that unlike Eve, the villain role that Benicio del Toro is up for will be one familiar to Trek fans. Abrams reportedly has just one more major role left to cast, believed to be a secondary villain and older supporting character counterpart to del Toro's main bad guy.

We already know J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2 will be shot in 3D and without trying to sound vulgar, fanboys can now look forward to two ample sized assets gouging out their eyeballs come May 2013. Hey, before you sound off and complain in the comments, this is the girl who led a sex themed rom-com titled She’s Out Of My League, a movie based around how drop dead attractive she is. Eve has appeared either only in a bra or bra-less in nearly every one of her films to date, so this is how Hollywood wants us to think.
Certainly Kirk will be pleased… he’s getting a beautiful blonde to seduce this time around while Spock and Uhura get it on.

It was just over a year ago that Alice Eve was being strongly linked with a role in Captain America, one that ultimately went to Hayley Attwell. What that proved, though, was that the British actress was firmly on the radar of Hollywood casting directors.
And now? It looks like she’s finally landed herself a sizeable role in a major Hollywood blockbuster (we say that not knowing how big her role is in next year’s Men In Black 3, to be fair).
According to Variety, Eve is the second new addition to the cast of Jj Abrams’ Star Trek sequel, following Benicio Del Toro (who still hasn’t been confirmed, but it seems inevitable he will be). She’s set to appear as a brand new character in the Trek universe (Del Toro »
The USS Enterprise is alive and kicking again, with news arriving today that J.J. Abrams wants Alice Eve to join the cast of his Star Trek sequel in an unspecifed role. While there's no word on who she's playing, Variety says it's most likely a character that'll be new to the canon. Eve (who apparently beat out Teresa Palmer and Hayley Atwell for the Trek role) isn't a done deal yet; like with Benicio del Toro -- who Abrams wants as his main villain -- they're still negotiating deals. Variety's sources are telling them that del Toro's character will most likely be someone Trek fans are familiar with, and that there's still one major role left to be cast that possibly belongs to another older villain who acts as a supporting character to del Toro...

So much of this production has been kept quiet. We finally know that filming will begin early next year, but no one has any idea about who the villain will be. There has been endless speculation about whether or not Khan will make an appearance. As we reported earlier, Benicio Del Toro is in the running to play the bad guy.
According to Variety, Eve's character is believed to be new to the cannon. She reportedly also beat out Teresa Palmer and Hayley Atwell for the role. "Star Trek 2" will hit theaters on May 17th, 2013. »
There’s some action going on over at J.J. Abrams’ super secret lair where he makes all of his super secret movies, and Variety has the scoop. Apparently his upcoming Star Trek sequel calls for even more attractive young actors than his original go around with the franchise did, because he’s been testing actresses like Theresa Palmer, Hayley Atwell, and Alice Eve to play a character new to Star Trek canon. And after all the tests were tested and the deliberations were deliberated, it’s looking like Eve is the first choice of Abrams and crew to become the newest member of the Star Trek universe. She hasn’t officially signed yet, but sources expect it to happen soon. Eve is kind of a wild card casting in my eyes. Mostly she’s done a bunch of TV series and the Sex and the City sequel, so I don’t have much of a basis to »

“Star Trek 12″, aka “Star Trek 2″, aka “J.J. Abrams’ Untitled Star Trek Sequel” — whatever you want to call it, the film has cast its first new face in the form of Alice Eve (“She’s Out of My League”). Word is that Eve beat out fellow Brit Hayley Atwell (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) and Aussie Teresa Palmer (“I am Number Four”) for the cushy gig, and will be playing a new character that will be introduced into the series. Benicio del Toro is also believed to still be up for the sequel’s unknown bad guy. Abrams will return to direct from a script by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof, with Paramount eyeing a May 17, 2013 release date for the 3D film. As per usual for an Abrams project, no one beyond the writers/producers know anything about the storyline. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana are »
Bombshell Alice Eve ("She's Out of My League") is in talks to join the cast of J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek 2", playing an as-yet-unknown character new to the "Star Trek" universe. Variety reports that Eve won out over other actresses that Abrams was considering for the part, including Hayley Atwell ("Captain America") and Teresa Palmer (the upcoming "Warm Bodies"). Meanwhile, Benicio del Toro is still in talks to join the film in a villain role that is allegedly from previous "Trek" lore (Khan?). An announcement is expected soon. Enterprise crew members Chris Pine, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, »

A new report from Variety claims that J.J. Abrams has added Alice Eve to the lineup for "Star Trek 2." According to the article, Eve will play a character new to the "Star Trek" cannon, instead one fans are familiar with from either the original series or the films.
While Eve's deal has yet to be officially inked, the jury is still out on whether Benicio del Toro will join the cast as the villain. Word came out earlier this month that Abrams wanted del Toro to take on the role, but details on the character have remained entirely mysterious. Now, the Variety report offers the first potential word on the character del Toro could eventually play.
The article cites someone close to production, who claims that the »
