Movie Character I’d Marry: Virginia Baker in “Entrapment” Played by Catherine Zeta Jones

This post is somewhat of a combination of “the best they ever looked” and what the title is, “movie character I’d marry.” If you’ve ever seen the movie Entrapment you’ll recognize that Catherine Zeta Jones is in my opinion at her most beautiful. I think it’s between this film and Zorro with regards to which movie she looked her all-time best in. Though I have to say her character in High Fidelity is super sexy. But let’s get back to Entrapment. If there’s a woman I’d marry without hesitation to spend the rest of my life with it’s Zeta Jones’

Feud” marks Zeta-Jones’ most high-profile project in quite some time. Best known for her film work, the award-winning actress became one of Hollywood’s most prominent stars in the late ’90s through the ’00s with movies including “The Mask of Zorro,” “Entrapment,” “Traffic” and “Chicago,” for which she won an Oscar, SAG Award and BAFTA Award. “Feud” does not mark her first role on television, but Zeta-Jones has not appeared in a major TV role since

The Gunman review: Does Sean Penn have a special set of skills?

The Gunman review: Does Sean Penn have a special set of skills?
Director: Pierre Morel; Screenwriter: Don MacPherson, Pete Travis, Sean Penn; Starring: Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Javier Bardem, Mark Rylance, Ray Winstone, Jasmine Trinca; Running time: 115 mins; Certificate: 15

There used to be a time when nothing was more cringe-worthy than a middle-aged action hero. Remember Roger Moore smooching Bond Girls 30 years his junior in the twilight years of his 007 reign? Or Sean Connery trying to recapture the glory days next to Catherine Zeta-Jones in Entrapment? That was then and this is now.

The slightly creaking older leading man is now a sizeable mini-industry in itself, primarily thanks to Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills in the Taken series. Beyond that Denzel Washington had The Equalizer, Kevin Costner had 3 Days to Kills and every action icon you remember from the '80s united for The Expendables.

The latest seasoned star to throw his hat into the still-got-lead-in-the-pencil ring is Sean Penn, teaming with

'Lost Girl' star Anna Silk on the show ending after season 5
Anna Silk has announced via a teary-eyed video on Twitter that Lost Girl, the Canadian Showcase original series imported to Syfy, will end after the upcoming 16-episode fifth season. Producers learned of the show’s fate early enough in the season to craft a satisfying conclusion for fans. “Honestly, I thought we might get one more, but I knew that this could be the last season,” Silk tells EW. “It’s time, in a way. In terms of the story, I think we could have done another. But I’m happy that we’re saying goodbye in a particularly strong season,

Interview with 47 Ronin Costume Designer Penny Rose

Where to start with Penny Rose? Pirates of the Caribbean? Evita? King Arthur? Most recently of course 47 Ronin (directed by Carl Rinsch). You do not hire Penny Rose for something small. This is not to say she won’t work on independent and low budget projects, just that her CV is becoming increasingly packed with huge scale period and/or fantasy studio movies – basically the kind of pictures that would make most costume designers weep. Multiples, armour, uniforms, plus Ms. Rose practically always builds from scratch. Not a fan of ‘shopping’ or even slightly interested in fashion, Penny Rose is old-school hands on, no-nonsense and no fear.

Nonetheless, there is a certain sense of irony in Ms. Rose’s position on contemporary fashion, being as she started her sartorial career working for Elio Fiorucci in Italy, although by her own admission this is mainly because she spoke fluent Italian. On

Top 10 TV Actors to Movie Stars

  • HeyUGuys
Yeah, bitch! Having charmed millions as tragic and naïve drug dealer Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul takes the wheel for his first leading role in Need for Speed this week.

As the video game adaptation speeds onto screens nationwide, we’ve taken a look at 10 stars who made the jump for small screen stardom to cinematic success (in alphabetical order).

Jennifer Aniston

As much as you might guiltily enjoy Matthew Perry romcom Fools Rush In, it’s hard to deny that Aniston’s the only Friends alumnus to find real big-screen fame. Sure, her filmography largely comprises mediocre romcoms, supporting roles in male comics’ vehicles or, latterly, sexbomb performances, but almost all of her movies are profitable, with five earning over $200m. Audiences just love Jen.

No more fiery females. Let's have real women on screen

The movies persist in giving us an outdated view of women

Ed Helmore's welcome article further underlined the woeful position of women in the film industry ("The naked truth: Hollywood treats its women as second-class citizens", In Focus).

There are also still questions to be raised about the representation of women in films. In fact, women rarely appear as women – they appear as sex objects or as ersatz men – sometimes both at once.

I like a strong female lead as much as the next person, but so often that female acts and talks exactly like a man and is surrounded by men – though she is usually allowed to have sex with the male lead at the end of the movie. When can we acknowledge that women do interesting, thrilling, beautiful, unusual, brave and clever things without having to inhabit a "traditionally male" role? Worst of all, the man-woman has now become a cliche,

The Neighbors' Toks Olagundoye Talks Season 2: Amber & Reggie Are Outed, Jackie Gets a Job?!

The Neighbors' Toks Olagundoye Talks Season 2: Amber & Reggie Are Outed, Jackie Gets a Job?!
Just minutes into The Neighbors‘ Season 2 premiere (which airs tonight at 8:30/7:30c on ABC), Toks Olagundoye ditches Jackie Joyner-Kersee’s preppy golfwear for something a little… stealthier.

Like, black-leather-bodysuit stealthier — a detail met with great approval when it hit Twitter last week via the ABC comedy’s official feed.

Olagundoye chuckles when the wardrobe selection is brought up. “It’s definitely not in any way, shape or form as fancy, insofar as the choreography, but I’m essentially reenacting the Catherine Zeta-Jones laser-avoidance scene from Entrapment,” she says, laughing.

The sitcom has become adept at pop culture asides of that sort.

Chris Evans to Make Directorial Debut With ’1:30 Train’

Before heading back to the ol’ Joss Whedon factory, Chris Evans is taking a little detour and trying his hand at directing. He is set to step back into his red, white and blues for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but first Evans will be helming a romance called 1:30 Train this fall, according to Deadline. The Ronald Bass-scripted romance is Evans’ directorial debut. He’ll also star in the film, described as being in the same vein as Before Sunrise, about two strangers who meet up in Manhattan and wind up spending the night together as their personal problems become a reason for getting to know each other and themselves. Sounds… kind of generic, but Bass has a varied and successful resume that includes Rain Man, Entrapment and What Dreams May Come, so this could be an interesting flick. Plus, Evans has been attached to the project for quite some time under a different director

Film Review: 'Red 2'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ We've certainly been heavily dosed with geriatric action thrillers in recent years, with Arnie taking on The Last Stand, Sylvester Stallone heading up The Expendables and Bruce Willis popping up in anything his agent prescribes. However, none can boast the hospital waiting room worth of talent of Red 2 (2013). Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins join Willis as contract killer OAPs codenamed REDs - Retired, Extremely Dangerous - who first moseyed onto our screens with the sleeper hit original in 2010. Willis reprises his role as former CIA officer Frank Moses, who's now settled into domesticity.

Alongside sweetheart Sarah (Mary Louise Parker), Frank is now more used to doing the weekly shop at Costco (the first of many shameless product placements) than pistol-whipping hired goons. He's lured out of retirement, again, by his unhinged pal Marvin (John Malkovich), when they are falsely tied with Cold-War era nuclear plot by the name of 'Nightshade'.

'Red 2' Review: 10 Things to Know About the Bruce Willis Spy Sequel

  • Moviefone
The gang's (mostly) all back for "Red 2," the sequel to the 2010 hit about aging spies who are "Retired, Extremely Dangerous," and it's even -- dare we say -- more fun than the first one.

Bruce Willis stars again as former CIA black ops agent Frank Moses, only this time his girlfriend (Mary-Louise Parker) wants a piece of the action. He's joined by his psychotic partner in mayhem, Marvin (John Malkovich), the gun-toting Victoria (Helen Mirren), and several newcomers to the franchise, including Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins as Katja and Bailey (more on them below).

In this second go-round, Frank is trying to stay retired, but a leaked document linking him and Marvin to a still-hot Cold War operation lands them on everyone's hit list. As they try to save their own necks, the fate of the world falls on their shoulders as well.

13 Hollywood Loopers

  • NextMovie
The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier.

For fellow action hero Will Smith, for example, his prime mini-me is his own son Jaden who doesn't need a stitch of prosthesis to pull it off because, you know, doy. The two star as, surprise surprise, father and son in M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming sci-fi thriller "After Earth," and we swear that the older Fresh Prince Jr. gets, the more of that Big Willie Style he inherits.

Will Smith boards Focus for Warner Bros. Kristen Stewart drops out due to age difference

Focus from Glenn Ficarra and John Requa has Will Smith in final talks for the lead, but the film has now lost Kristen Stewart who dropped out of the Warner Bros. Pictures film, apparently due to feeling like the age difference between the two would be too large. I wonder what Smith's reaction this situation is. True, he's no youngster anymore, and showing some signs of aging, but he's no Sean Connery in Entrapment. Crazy, Stupid, Love helmers Ficarra and Requa are scripting and helming the con artist film which tells of an inexperienced female con artist who teams up with a more seasoned one. Producing is Denise Dinovi.

Tonight's MovieMovie: Entrapment Starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones

  • ReelzChannel
"You're playing both sides."

Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones almost worked together on 1998's The Mask of Zorro, the move that turned into Zeta-Jones' breakout movie. However, Connery dropped out of his role, the one that eventually went to Anthony Hopkins, so the two would instead work together afterwards on 1999's Entrapment, with Connery playing a thief and Zeta-Jones as an insurance investigator who poses a thief in order to, you guessed it, entrap Connery on the theft of a Rembrandt painting.

Of course, Entrapment has more twists and turns in store, and we're not just talking about the infamous laser alarm sequence, there's also a budding romance between the two characters — despite a size-able age difference of about 40 years. "Any fears I might have had disappeared the moment I met Sean," Zeta-Jones told McCall in 1999. "There was immediate chemistry and attraction between us. I figured if it worked for us in reality,

Why Can't My New Year's Eve Be Like the Movies?

Why Can't My New Year's Eve Be Like the Movies?
Ah, New Year's Eve — a magical evening filled with champagne, kisses at the stroke of midnight and, of course, a fresh start to the year ahead. Too bad in real life it's so much more often filled with overpriced dinners, obnoxious drunks and broken resolutions. (Yes, we often do manage to break our resolutions before even crawling into bed.) In other words, New Year's Eve almost always blows … yet somehow in the movies it's so damn perfect.

In honor of Hollywood's optimistic vision for the year's most stressful night, here's a compilation of the nine greatest moments caught on celluloid as the clock strikes 12. It may not be as good as the real thing … because it's even better. Happy New Year, indeed.

This romantic comedy actually (gasp!) gets it right. After some ill-fated back-and-forth, Sam (Tom Hanks) and Annie (Meg Ryan) finally unite — in large

A Touch of Cloth - Part 1 Review

Oliver Davis reviews Part 1 of the Sky 1 special, A Touch of Cloth...

"Natasha's called from the mortuary. She said it's big."

"I know. I've been there."

That is an excellent joke. It echoes the great Airplane running gag of:

"You'd better tell the Captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital."

"A hospital? What is it?"

"It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now"

It could've easily been written by the Abrahams or Zuckers. But it wasn't. It was written by Charlie Brooker (Black Mirror) and Daniel Maier (Harry Hill's TV Burp). Both, then, have credentials of lampooning television, and their A Touch of Cloth leaves no detective show convention unmocked.

Here's another:

"The victim had just been shopping at the pet store."

"Any leads?"

"No. Just cat nip and food."

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

The Muppets; Man on a Ledge; Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close; Babycall; J Edgar

Once upon a time, in the days before The Simpsons, adults and children alike were enchanted by the surprisingly satirical antics of The Muppets on both the small and big screen. Combining splendidly simple puppetry with razor-sharp wit and instantly hummable tunes, the Muppets' programmes and movies formed an instant connection with the mischievous anarchist that lurks within. Yet, like all good things, the magic came to an end – until, that is, co-writer and star Jason Segel made it his mission to breathe new life into Jim Henson's finest creations.

While such nostalgic series reboots have in the past proved decidedly iffy fare, two elements raise The Muppets (2011, Disney, U) above the level of the usual reanimated, long-dormant franchise fodder. First, Segel has managed to address the perceived obsolescence of his childhood heroes in a script
