Cinema had a pretty good year in 2011. The summer saw an onslaught of costumed hero flicks, which to my great surprise were all pretty good. Hollywood has turned off the cheese factor on comic adaptations, lining up great directors and better actors. The biggest surprise of 2011 was the remarkable success of The Artist, a charming silent film by French director Michael Hazanavicius. Since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, it has been a critical and awards favorite. The Artist should be a lock to win the Best Film Oscar.
My favorite film of 2011 is Gavin O'Connor's Warrior. I had no idea what to expect when I saw this movie in September and was completely blown away. A brutal fighting film, the fisticuffs pale in comparison to the gripping family drama. Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton play two brothers, long separated by the childhood abuse of their father - Nick Nolte, »
With New Year’s Eve coming up, you can be sure that there are going to be a lot of people with a lot of hangovers. Hopefully no one ends up with a baby or a tiger, like the guys in “The Hangover.” However, whether you just end up with a bad headache or having Mike Tyson in your bathroom, you can bounce back with Hangover Joe’s Get Up & Go. This tie-in to the film “The Hangover” is a real product that helps battle the grogginess and confusion that happens when you party too much on New Year’s Eve. “Having New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day on a weekend, »
Former boxing champion Mike Tyson has apologised to fans in the Middle East following bogus reports which suggested he is set to appear at a fight in Dubai.
The sports star has warned fans not to fall for the fake promotion, and apologised for the confusion.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, Tyson writes, "There is a rumour about me being in Dubai on Jan 21st to do an appearance (at) a fight match. This is not true. I will not be there.
"Sorry to all my Dubai fans. Unfortunately, a bogus promoter pretending to represent me made an unlawful deal." »
Bradley Cooper, you might not have swayed Time magazine's opinion much this year, but you're still a lock for People's "Sexiest Man Alive" when it comes to the loveliest ladies in Hollywood.
Last month, E! Online whispered that Cooper was taking his onscreen affair with Zoe Saldana in "The Words" to the real world. This was shortly after Saldana and her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé Keith Britton broke up after 11 years. Saldana's publicist denied Cooper and Saldana were anything more than friends. Meanwhile, Bradley Cooper was spotted enjoying a day out with "Beginners" star Mélanie Laurent across the Atlantic.
It's almost a new year, though, and time for a new romance, oui?
Cooper and Saldana have been spotted smooching, and at least one loose-lipped "pal" told E! Online that they're "totally dating." And, in case you're wondering, they may or may not be enjoying some fluffy snow in the Rocky Mountains over »

Justin Lin.s lucrative sequel Fast Five roared to a $626.1 million worldwide take, making it the highest-grossing film in the franchise.s history. Imagine how much more it could have made, though, if 9.2 million people didn.t illegally download Five to their computer, robbing Lin (and Universal) of some hard-earned cash? Fast Five leads TorrentFreak.com.s list of the most-pirated films in 2011, putting it ahead of Todd Phillips. The Hangover: Part II (8.8 million) and Kenneth Branagh.s Thor (8.3 million). The site collects its information from multiple sources . including reports from BitTorrent trackers . and includes all versions of pirated releases, including cam recordings and streams. We don.t condone pirating. At all. In fact, blockbusters like Fast Five and Thor -- which feature some of the most impressive action and fight choreography that we saw in 2011 -- deserve to be seen the largest screen possible.

Another day, another lawsuit for The Hangover 2. The comedy sequel, which so far has racked up $581 million in worldwide box office grosses, is quite used to the lawsuits by now. They've dealt with one from Mike Tyson's tattoo artist who sued claiming the filmmakers used his unique design in the film without his permission, and then another from some weird dude who claimed Warner Bros. stole the whole concept of the film from his own warped real-life adventures. Now, all these months later, Louis Vuitton is suing Warner Bros. for allegedly using their luggage in the film's airport scene without the company's permission. Furthermore, they also claim the luggage used is a fake Louis Vuitton. Obviously they're seeking damages, but they also want...

Melanie Amaro won the first The X Factor and took home the $5 million recording contract winner's prize. What's she going to do with the money? Buy her mom a new house because "the one we live in now sucks," and a lifetime supply of chicken, saying, "I can't live without it. It's my favorite food."
Lindsay Lohan has landed a new modeling contract that doesn't require her to get naked, but the deal with Jag Jeans does involve LiLo "posing provocatively in tiny cutoff shorts, a belly-baring top, high heels and lots of accessories."
Louis Vuitton is suing Warner Brothers, claiming the bag carried by Zach Galifianakis in The Hangover 2 — the one roughly handled by Stu that prompts the line "Careful, that's a Louis Vuitton!" — is a fake made by the Chinese American company Diophy.

In 2009, audiences were introduced to The Hangover, a raunchy Frat Pack-esque comedy about a small group of men who overdo it when they celebrate one of their own’s bachelor party in Las Vegas. With a crew consisting of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha, insane hijinks and ridiculous R-rated debauchery ensue. After the film’s enormous success, a sequel was eventually more than likely to be made and that is the subject of this review. The Hangover Part II is now out in a nifty Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy combo pack and what a perfect stocking stuffer it is for the holiday season.

A California man has withdrawn his lawsuit against the studio bosses behind The Hangover Part II - just two months after alleging the hit comedy was based on his own experiences.
Michael Alan Rubin turned the events of his hellish honeymoon in Asia into a script entitled Mickey and Kirin, and he took action against the project's officials in October for reportedly infringing on his copyright by basing The Hangover sequel on his work.
But now Rubin has voluntarily dismissed the suit, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
As WENN went to press, it was not yet known if the two parties had reached a private settlement.
This marks the latest legal triumph for The Hangover Part II bosses - Ed Helms' acting double, Scott McLean, also recently dropped his lawsuit against studio executives after claiming he suffered significant brain trauma on set during a stunt gone wrong.
Starring Kristen Stewart as a pregnant human, Robert Pattinson as a vampire, and Taylor Lautner as a six-packed werewolf, Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is now the third-biggest blockbuster at the North American box office, having surpassed Todd Phillips' comedy sequel The Hangover: Part II last weekend. According to figures found at Box Office Mojo, The Hangover 2, which stars Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha, Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms stranded in Thailand, has collected $254.46 million in the domestic market. After 27 days (up until Dec. 14), Breaking Dawn 1 has raked in $261.45 million. No wonder Star Trek's George Takei is terrified of the Twilight menace.

As you can see Tyrese tweeted, "Js is up next!!" and Ken Jeong (The Hangover) replied with, "Js baby!!!." Tyrese noticed that the tweet was starting to get some attention and tried to snuff out the rumor that J.S. stood for Jason Staham. So lets believe that Tyrese didn't mean to imply that "Js" meant Jason Statham, then we still have one big question on our mind. Who is Js? I put together a list of actors who share the initials J.S., like: Jerry Seinfeld, Jerry Springer, Julia Stiles, Jessica Simpson, John Stamos, and Jon Stewart. The more I look at that list the more I hope and believe that Tyrese meant Jason Statham. Although a cameo with Jerry Springer interviewing Bumble Bee would be kind of sweet. What do you guys think? »
Chicago – Todd Phillips has huge balls. Never before has a sequel hit So many of the exact same beats as its predecessor. More of a remake of the film that came before than most slasher franchises, “The Hangover Part II” is the definition of more of the same. You can see Phillips going through the motions — they liked the first one, let’s give it to ‘em again with a bit of Thai flavor and more Ken Jeong. The result is a film that feels remarkably familiar with a few laughs, some decent comedic chemistry, and some daring humor, but a work that just reeks of lazy filmmaking.
Blu-Ray Rating: 2.0/5.0
Of course, as most people know, the plan worked. Releasing nearly the same movie less than two years later resulted in one of the biggest hits of the year, a film that’s made over half a billion dollars worldwide »

Hold the phone! Alex Proyas' 'Paradise Lost' has been put on hold due to financial difficulty. Legendary Pictures and producers have been forced to go back to the drawing board to cut around their overblown budget. The costs for the epic flick based on the famous poem by John Milton have exceeded its $120 million allocated budget and so the accounts department are going to have to do a little trimming to get things back on track. The studio are hoping at this stage to push forward once again with the project in late Spring slash early Summer. Production was all set to kick off next month with Bradley Cooper -below ('The Hangover') in the role of Lucifer with Benjamin Walker ('Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'), Casey Affleck ('Tower Heist'), Rufus Sewell ('Dark City'), Sam Reid, Djimon Hounsou, Diego Boneta and »
When you think about Bradley Cooper (People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2011), one usually imagines the jerks he’s played in movies (“Wedding Crashers,” “The Hangover” movies) and it’s easy to picture him as a tool in real life. But then you see him in interviews, and he’s a really nice guy. It’s kind of annoying. Cooper was especially awesome in his recent interview with Empire, where he talked about his reasons for dropping out of “The Crow” and also took out his cell phone to show the interviewer photos from his “Paradise Lost” screen tests with him in his motion capture gear (but as you might guess, it’s hard to see the details through a cell phone). As for "The Crow," it seems that Cooper hadn’t become too cool to play the dark goth hero, citing the exit of the film's director as his main reason for leaving. »
The Hangover star is set to play the devil Lucifer in the film, which revolves around the biblical tale of Adam and Eve's expulsion from the Garden of Eden - and he's sure the project will court controversy.
He tells Britain's Metro, "I can really relate to the story of Paradise Lost. I did a Milton course as part of my English degree and fell in love with that character because I couldn't believe how appetising he is in that poem. Satan is the hero.
"It's a story we can all relate to - Dad's gone crazy and he wants us to worship the dog and then his brother says: 'Dad's right.' It's about the father betraying the character.
"You bet it's going to be criticised. You're taking one of the greatest pieces of literature of the past 300 years but who cares? It really is a wonderful experiment." »
