Comic-Con: Everything Benedict Cumberbatch Said That Made Women Scream

14 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

"I'm gonna try not to cry," said the big-eyed brunette fan, quavery-voiced as she approached the microphone.  Forty feet away, the British actor seated at the dais in Comic-Con's Hall H leaned forward and nodded benevolently."We'll all try together," replied Benedict Cumberbatch.Many a genre heartthrob has graced the stage at Comic-Con in years past, but the reaction to the 38-year-old Cumberbatch — who's never made the trek to San Diego until now, despite a Con-worthy résumé that includes Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hobbit — was on a different level than the shrieks that used to greet Taylor Lautner or Robert Pattinson here. This felt personal. The women in this audience, whose crush on Cumberbatch was stoked initially by the BBC series Sherlock, had helped to make him a romantic lead and a movie star almost by sheer force of fervor, and now he had arrived to face his »

Film Review: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If the wayward denizens of “Star Wars’” Mos Eisley Cantina rose up and demanded their own starring vehicle, it would probably look something like “Guardians of the Galaxy,” an alt-“Avengers” in which a ragtag band of misfits and mercenaries make the world a safer place almost by accident. An unusually prankish and playful Marvel Studios vehicle, director James Gunn’s presumptive franchise-starter is overlong, overstuffed and sometimes too eager to please, but the cheeky comic tone keeps things buoyant — as does Chris Pratt’s winning performance as the most blissfully spaced-out space crusader this side of Buckaroo Banzai. While these “Guardians” seem unlikely to challenge the box office benchmarks set by their Marvel brethren, this inaugural outing should nevertheless inject some much-needed life into Hollywood’s sagging summer fortunes.

Introduced in the January 1969 issue of “Marvel Super-Heroes,” the Guardians have been spun off, recast and rebooted several times over the decades, »

Model Jourdan Dunn Blames Her Bad Fashion on Cara Delevingne?—See the Pic!

just now | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What exactly did the "Cara" called out on Jourdan Dunn's shirt make her do? Because if the answer is wear this outfit then this supermodel was smart to pass the blame. Could it be fashion's resident edgy dresser Cara Delevingne? The two beauties have walked many a runway together. Is Jourdan's cheeky choice a way to get back at her colleague for some style-related bet? Or could this ripped crop be the first in the fashionable Ms. Delevingne's new fashion line? If so, we're not so sure we want to see the rest of the designs. Yes, this tall, fit beauty could make a burlap sack look fashionable, but that doesn't mean a nautical, pencil-shaped midi and ripped up tee get a pass. It's »

'Moonbeam City' Trailer: Rob Lowe is an Animated Sleaze God

just now | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to "Moonbeam City," the single sleaziest, horniest, and most absurd take on "Miami Vice"-style crime dramas I've ever seen. Comedy Central's upcoming animated series stars Rob Lowe (arguably our greatest and creepiest actor) as Dazzle Novak, "a handsome idiot who commits more crimes than most criminals." Dazzle has to contend with his overbearing boss Pizzaz Miller (Elizabeth Banks) and cocky rookie Rad Cunningham (Will Forte), who is determined to see him fail. The show debuts in 2015, but for now you can glimpse this seedy, neon, pink, slightly Nsfw-ish trailer. Get More: Comedy Central,Funny Videos,Funny TV Shows »
