To celebrate the return of the notorious, extra terrestrial busting black suits to the big screen in the eagerly anticipated Men in Black 3, LOVEFiLM asked over 3000 people to cast their vote for the sharpest suits in cinema. Daniel Craig’s sartorial choice as James Bond topped the style list with an impressive 30% of the vote, putting him streets ahead of Will Smith’s infamous black outfit from the Men in Black franchise, which made its way into second place with 20%. Taking third place in the style stakes (with a slightly less conventional look) is Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight, whose menacing purple and green outfit snatched 17% of the vote.

From Fred and Ginger to Jennifer and Ashton, romantic comedies used to be one of the safest bets in Hollywood. But it seems that rom is just not into com any more

It seems to be a chiselled Hollywood commandment that the two shall be forever conjoined in cinematic matrimony, but perhaps it's time they went their separate ways.
