Simon Columb on You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger…
Squeezed between Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris are two less-known features. Whatever Works harks back to earlier scripts while You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is a mish-mash of actors and threads of stories that are, ultimately, forgettable. Alfie (Anthony Hopkins) divorces his wife, Helena (Gemma Jones), while daughter Sally (Naomi Watts) struggles with her own husband, Roy (Josh Brolin). Roy falls for younger-model Dia (Freida Pinto) as Sally »

Bold lip fans, take note! Just because the mercury is rising you don't have to put away your favorite berry, burgundy, and oxblood lip colors. Even though vampy lipsticks tend to hibernate like knee-high boots during the spring, celebs like Kim Kardashian, Hilary Duff, and Freida Pinto have all worn dark shades recently. "Mahogany lips actually suit all skin tones and eye colors since those shades are both cool and warm on the color wheel," celebrity makeup artist Rae Morris tells Us Weekly. "Matte lip colors will look [...] »

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ trailer: New trailer for 2014 ‘Planet of the Apes’ film shows humans are the most dangerous apes of them all (image: Caesar in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’) The new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer is out. Caesar and his fellow genetically modified apes enjoy a peaceful existence until created-in-God’s-image apes — that’s self-delusional humans — discover the Gmo apes’ hiding place in a lush forest. Much like gays were blamed for the AIDS virus a few decades ago, the virtuous and righteous humans (Gary Oldman among them) blame the Gmo apes for a virus that all but wiped out humankind. Enter the military, ever eager to save the world for peace and happiness by way of some heavy-duty weaponry. Needless to say, I’m ardently rooting for Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his fellow Gmo apes.

Politics may make strange bedfellows, but Washington D.C.'s most star-studded night always makes for some interesting table talk. At the 100th annual White House Correspondents Association dinner, emceed this year by Joel McHale, expect to see the usual oddball mix of celebrities seated with politicians seated with media folk, who host tables in a massive ballroom under the Washington Hilton. To the uninitiated, watching the A-listers make their way to their seats seems a bit like Harry Potter's Hogwarts "sorting hat" is at work sending each boldface name to the right place. Where's Anna Kendrick headed? She'll be at the Huffington Post's table, »
For those of us who don’t get invited to the White House Correspondents Dinner (and are 100 percent bitter about it), the majority of the event’s fun comes from hearing which random trainwreck celebrities show up each year. Did Lindsay Lohan pop in again? What about Ozzy Osbourne?
So the bad news for all of us stuck at home on May 3 — again, totally bitter — is that 2014′s dinner is looking disappointingly normal. For starters, Joel McHale is serving as the evening’s entertainer, which sets a healthy, funny tone for the night. And whom will McHale be entertaining? The Wrap reports that Rosario Dawson, »

The Apes movies practically defined the law of diminishing returns. Franklin J Schaffner’s seminal science-fiction, Planet of The Apes was one of the biggest hits of 1968. An ingenious adaptation of Pierre Boule’s novel, it won an Oscar for John Chambers’ iconic make-up effects and took the ‘Twist Ending’ to a new level, possibly never surpassed.
Despite the colossal box office returns of its predecessor, Beneath The Planet of The Apes had its budget halved – a penny-pinching exercise that would continue throughout the series. By the time of Conquest of The Planet of The Apes, allegory had taken over spectacle, and the films became a running commentary on racial oppression and the contemporary 1970s actions of the Black Panther movement. Cleverly, the five original Ape movies form a long circular narrative, with the time-travelling chimpanzees of Escape From The Planet of The Apes, giving birth to a son whose »

Remember back in 2011, when Terrence Malick released the literally indescribably powerful film “The Tree of Life” and let it be known that he had no less than three more films on their way? For a man whose entire, near-40 year career had so far yielded only four movies, it was thrilling to learn that it might take just four years to get as many again...…and then everything got strange. Malick's next release, “To The Wonder,” was poorly reviewed (though not by us), his mysterious documentary “Voyage of Time” met legal roadblocks that have since been resolved, and his next drama, “Knight of Cups,” continued shooting with its extraordinary cast—Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas, Antonio Banderas, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Ryan O'Neal, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman—but appeared to get no nearer to completion.Increasingly, it has become clear that “Knight of Cups”, as is standard practice for Malick's work, »

Andy Serkis reprises his role as primate revolutionary Caesar in this summer's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which moves on the story started in its 2011 predecessor. This time around there's no James Franco or Freida Pinto, but master of performance capture Serkis is back (with Jason Clarke and Keri Russell on human co-star duties) to drive the hotly-anticipated sequel.
Digital Spy spent some time with Serkis on the New Orleans set of Dawn to discuss the Matt Reeves-directed blockbuster.
Where does this film pick up from its predecessor?
At the end of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we were left in a situation where the virus had taken hold. We got the impression that humanity was under a great deal of threat - which is what happens. The virus spreads and we're imagining that about 90% of the world's population is decimated. There are surviving pockets of humans. »

Where ya been, Freida Pinto? We've missed you! Of course, we occasionally catch the actress in her L'Oreal TV commercials.

Washington, March 28: Freida Pinto, who serves as Global Brand Ambassador of Plan International's "Because I am a Girl" campaign, talked about World Health Organization declaring India polio free.
