Keira Knightley shocked the world on Tuesday when she displayed her tiny waist while attending the Chanel fashion show at Paris Fashion Week.
Knightley is the face of the Chanel fragrance Coco Mademoiselle, and attended the fashion show dressed head-to-toe in the famed designer. The focal point of her ensemble was an optical illusion dress that made her waist look even smaller than usual, a shocking visual considering Knightley’s already small frame.
The dress is comprised of a full skirt and a boxy crop top with a skintight, black clinched waist. The wide-set skirt and structured top, which hangs straight at her waist and does not mold to her body at all, makes Knightly appear more broad than she really is, making her waist stand out even more.
Knightley attended the show with her husband, James Righton and fellow celebrity attendee, Rihanna, wore a variation on the optical illusion dress, »
To my recollection Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) was the last name attached to direct Masters of the Universe for Columbia Pictures. I'm not sure when exactly he dropped out of the picture, but the studio is looking around once again as Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) has finished a new draft of the screenplay. The names apparently in contention include Mike Cahill (Another Earth, I Origins), Chris McKay ("Robot Chicken"), Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid) and Jeff Wadlow (Kick Ass 2). Masters of the Universe began in the 1980s as a toy line at Mattel. It would eventually spawn comics, a cartoon series and a live-action movie in 1987 starring Dolph Lundgren. The generic narrative centers on He-Man, a prince who turns into a mythic superhero and battles the forces of evil led by Skeletor. Looking at the list of names above, none »

It was many years ago when I first became familiar with Kentaro Miura's anime Berserk. Actually I was playing Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage on the Sega Dreamcast. A violent warrior swinging a giant sword against hordes of demons? I was hooked! Perfect fodder for a movie.
According to IMDb (so that this with a grain of salt as they're rarely reliable) a movie is coming in 2017 with an impressive list of directors... Christophe Gans (Silent Hill, Brotherhood of the Wolf), Oliver Stone (JFK, Platoon, Natural Born Killers) and Nicolas Winding Refn (Only God Forgives, Drive, Bronson) - apparently all collaborating on the project which was originally conceived as a manga from Kentaro Miura.
Stuart Beattie (I, Frankenstein, 30 Days of Night, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) worked on the screenplay.
In the adaptation, “The Epic of Guts, a dangerous barbarian who joins »

It seems obvious to most fans that the highly-anticipated Batman Vs. Superman will lead into Warner Bros.' Justice League, with new casting additions such as Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) confirmed for this Man of Steel sequel. The latest unconfirmed report claims that Warner Bros. is actually shooting both Batman Vs. Superman and Justice League back-to-back, employing the same strategy previously used with The Hobbit movies and sequels to Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl and The Matrix.
This new report also clarifies that Dwayne Johnson, who teased a mysterious Warner Bros./DC Comics project last month, will be involved in Justice League. We reported earlier this month that the actor may be playing John Stewart, a.k.a. Green Lantern, although it wasn't known if he would be playing that role in Batman Vs. Superman or Justice League, or both.
You probably remember that whole American Humane Association scandal from a few months ago. You know, the one where only official monitoring body for animal care in Hollywood was actually playing fast and loose with the phrase “No Animals Were Harmed,” and covering up all kinds of animal-harming that occurred under their watch. Dozens of sea creatures were killed in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl‘s many boat explosions. A handler on the set of Failure to Launch was trying to carry a chipmunk on his shoulder when he dropped it and stepped on it, crushing it to death. An Aha monitor, who was having an affair with a Life of Pi executive, conveniently covered up the near-drowning of a tiger on the set of Life of Pi. The list goes on and on, and can be read in extreme length and detail over at The Hollywood Reporter. After »
