Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer hoping for Indian Summer . After a intriguing teaser, a new, more orthodox trailer has arrived for The Lone Ranger. Depp, director Gore Verbinski and uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the team behind Pirates Of The Caribbean, will be hoping to replicate their success with a land based adventure, but spending a reported $250m on a western is a significant gamble. »

From coast to coast, celebs are keeping summer going with this effortless beach waves hairstyle. This style was spotted on Anna in New York City and Maria in Burbank, California on October 4. Who do You think wore it best? Maria Menounos, 34, and Anna Kendrick, 27, embrace this natural, beachy hairstyle perfectly, even well into this season's Indian Summer days. We love that the beachy waves trend is lasting into the fall! This easy, sexy hairstyle looks great on everyone and takes mere seconds to style. To try out this trend for yourself, try a texturizing salt spray like Catwalk by Tigi Session Series Sea Salt Spray. For looser waves like Anna's, just spritz the ends of your dry hair and scrunch for some volume. For Maria's all-over curl, spray the salt spray all over your hair while it's still wet and tousle as it air dries. HollywoodLifers, who do You think wore their wavy hairstyle best? »

It's been a good year for playwright and director Mike Bartlett. Love, Love, Love played at the Royal Court and his adaptation of Chariots Of Fire is currently at the Gielgud Theatre in the West End (to 10 Nov). This latest play, which he also directs, is something very different: Euripides's tale of a woman scorned who takes her revenge on her ex-husband in the most appalling way is one of the greatest and most enduring of Greek tragedies. Now it's reinvented for the modern age in Bartlett's new version about a 21st-century woman who is unhinged by grief when her husband, for whom she has given up everything, leaves her for another woman. The excellent Rachael Stirling is in the title role in a production for Headlong, which will be touring to major venues across the UK until December.

MondayMasters of Money
Debut of a three-part series presented by the BBC's economics editor, Stephanie Flanders, pondering in turn the relevance of three economic philosophers. The next two episodes will consider the legacies of Marx and Hayek, but tonight it's the turn of John Maynard Keynes. Flanders argues that we are living through the supreme test of Keynes's core belief: that the best way for a broke nation to stimulate growth is to spend yet more of the money it doesn't have. Keynes also bequeathed the supreme caution against overly utopian economic planning: "In the long run," he observed, "we are all dead." Andrew Mueller

This week's Mad Men, "Commissions and Fees," was Matthew Weiner's chronicle of a death foretold. This whole season has been full of death imagery, of characters' suicidal ideation, mired in a swampy, ominous sadness and anxiety. This isn't the show's first time at the emotional agony rodeo, though: Mad Men's fascination with suicide and secrets goes back all the way to the show's first season, and knowing what we know now, some of those early episodes take on a new sense of import. Season one's "5G," "Indian Summer," and "The Wheel" in particular resonate with the most recent installments, and for good reason. Those are the episodes where we meet Don's real brother, Adam Whitman, who attempts to reconnect with him. You remember Adam: He's the first guy to hang himself on Mad Men.Rewatching 2007's season one is to at first be shocked by how different everyone looks. »

After the roaring success of its inaugural weekend last summer, Pop Up Screens is finally back with a fantastic line up of outdoor, open-air weekend screenings throughout the summer around London.
Last May saw Ravenscourt Park in Hammersmith play host to three nights of pure cinematic gold, all screened to huge crowds in the park. On Friday Ron Burgundy and his boys held court over the park as audiences quoted their way through Anchorman. Saturday we braved the elements to watch The Dude try and solve the mystery of the missing Bunny Lebowski. The Big Lebowski’s tipple – The White Russian – was also on sale at the bar. While on Sunday we feasted on Twinkies as a warm, starless night provided the perfect atmosphere for Ghostbusters.
This year, however, Pop Up has upped the ante and are putting on 7 weekends of film fun. Watching films on a giant inflatable screen »

At 71, Pyarelal Sharma has the enthusiasm of a musical newbie. He remembers his late partner without any false melodrama. "We were like one, closer than brothers, so no one can even begin to understand our bond,'' he says. Not many are aware that till Laxmikant suggested that they team up as a duo in films, Pyarelal's ambition was to become a famous musician from India in Western music abroad, like his close friend Zubin Mehta. After Laxmikant passed away in 1998, the maestro (described by Laxmikant as "the only complete music director in Hindi cinema'' who could read and write Indian and Western notations, compose, arrange, conduct and record songs and knew all instruments like the back of his hand) fought back against bad times. "Even today, I would not mind doing films if they are from A-list setups. Yash Chopra, Subhash Ghai and Mahesh Bhatt keep talking about working together again, »

Celia Johnson died in her prime - at the age of 73. There was no other actress on the English stage whose career reached its zenith, a luminous Indian summer on both stage and television, in middle and old age. She defined to perfection a social type occupying the entrenched territories of middle and upper-middle class gentility, whose crisp, understated manners and stringent lack of sentimentality she conveyed to the manner born.
Yet she did not simply serve as a comprehensive guide-book to or map of a contracting portion of England. She incarnated qualities both of restraint and of passion; she knew everything about high English comedy whose airs of distraction and self-absorbed remoteness she conveyed so sharply in Coward's Hay Fever and Ayckbourn's Relatively Speaking; more surprisingly she was able in old age to act indelibly roles of high tragic velocity and pathos, »

"I have nothing, Don," says Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) at the end of Sunday's (April 15) "Mad Men" episode, "Signal 30." Though that's not precisely true. Pete has a wife and a young baby, in whom he's utterly disinterested. He's got a new stereo big enough for Wilt Chamberlain to sleep in. He's got a rifle. He's possibly got a case of the clap -- after all, he is sleeping with hookers. And when he utters the words above, he's got a bruised and bloodied face thanks to a workplace fist fight with Lane Pryce (Jared Harris.)
And the fact that this episode -- like the Drivers Ed movie Pete watched -- was called "Signal 30" (see it below), the police radio code for death, means we finally need to talk about whether or not Pete Campbell is going to make it through Season 5 of "Mad Men" or whether -- as has been »
One of the greatest things about being involved with HeyUGuys is that I’ve been able to connect with people of a like mind across continents and oceans. We share a love of movies as a whole, but more specifically, 80′s movies. John Hughes was our mentor and I’m sure I’m not the only one who would thrust a fist in the air while yelling out “Wolverines!”, or said with conviction “Let’s do it for Johnny.”
I know for a fact that I’m not the only one, when asked what game I want to play, to respond with “How about a nice game of chess?” I look upon quoting dialog as an art form. I’ve even written about it in the past. In my world, it’s worked into every day conversation and when someone gets it….it’s golden. The problem comes in to »

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is full of the usual cinematic cliches about old people – but at least it, for once, tries to deal with some of the big issues about ageing
We certainly have a problem with ageing. To fend it off, we're prepared to smother ourselves in quacksalvers' unguents, submit to abusive surgery, dye our hair and lie about our age. We treat those no longer able to disguise its ravages with embarrassed condescension or worse. We daren't even call them "old" any more, but must rely on euphemisms like senior or third-ager, as if referring to victims of an unspeakable affliction.
The media are usually accused of helping to shape inconvenient attitudes, and in this case cinema gets its share of the blame. After all, in pursuit of the teen dollar, it has championed attributes to which only the young can be expected to aspire. Unsurprisingly, the »

Last week, we got out our calendars and red sharpies and made plans for the first half of 2012. We were gonna do the whole year, but then we got hungry, were shocked to discover there were no more Rolos in the house, went out to get Rolos, then bumped into that guy we met at a thing a while back.
Guess we lost track of time.
But here we are, we still have our calendars -- and with a clear head we can talk about the Fanboy movies happening in mid-June on through the Holidays! Refresh yourself on Part 1, then continue to Part 2 of the 2012 preview below:
June 22 – "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"
This really feels more like a last-week-in-August movie, right? Maybe they'll be smart and move it. It has midnight movie potential, though. I'm hoping for a real good Salmon P. Chase joke.
June 29 – "G.I. Joe: Retaliation"
I quite enjoyed the first "G. »
