Just over 18 months ago, a film that remains very dear to the hearts of many readers of this site got its UK release. Launching on 7th September 2012, Dredd opened against films such as Lawless, Anna Karenina and the Adam Sandler vehicle, That's My Boy. Whilst, deservedly, the Sandler movie wouldn't even crack the top ten in the UK, it was Dredd that prevailed, off the back of encouraging reviews. The memory of the infamous (although not universally hated) 1995 Sylvester Stallone/Danny Cannon attempt to bring Judge Dredd to the screen had apparently been laid to rest.
Dredd opened to £1.05m of business, with its distributor choosing to play it pretty much exclusively in 3D. At the time, that had some initial upside, with the film being the first 18 certificate »
Watch the trailer below:
While Azura dances for her mother and Hollie causes problems by getting paint on her mum's dress, it's a different story for Cowell and Walliams.
Walliams's dressing room is empty - aside from a terrifying portrait of himself and Cowell - while Cowell is being doted on by a group of nannies.
In a hilarious twist, Walliams is also dressed as a nanny - but gets his just desserts when Cowell's son Eric throws a toy at him.

Just how much do Razzie voters love to hate Adam Sandler? including Worst Actor and Actress for playing male and female twins. That left nothing for the maligned "Transformers" or "Twilight" franchises that year. Then in 2012 Sandler made "That's My Boy," and they gave him Worst Actor again, though that time they spared him the indignity of winning every prize by bestowing the lion's share of Golden Raspberries on the "Twilight" finale. Those back-to-back victories as Worst Actor put Sandler in the same company as Sylv »
It's been far too long since Adam Sandler took a break from his stupid comedies like Grown Ups 2, That's My Boy and other garbage we'd rather forget about. Thankfully, Sandler is getting back to some solid filmmaking akin to his praiseworthy turns in films like Punch-Drunk Love, Spanglish and Reign Over Me. Director Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, The Station Agent) has Sandler leading his film The Cobbler, and we have a first look photo from the film. Sandler certainly looks tired (that's probably the idea) sipping some coffee out in front of his shoe shop. Hopefully McCarthy and Sandler deliver a charming little flick. Here's the first look at Thomas McCarthy's The Cobbler from Entertainment Weekly: The Cobbler is directed by Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, The Station Agent, The Visitor) from a script he co-wrote with newcomer Paul Sado. In the film, Adam Sandler plays a shoe repair »

On 12 December, 2013 Andy Samberg was in bed with his wife – alt-folk musician Joanna Newsom, in case you don't read the indie gossip pages – enjoying a break from filming the first series of his new detective comedy Brooklyn Nine Nine. "But she woke me up," he says, laughing. "She said, 'Look at your phone! You got nominated for a Golden Globe!' I tried to go back to sleep because I didn't think it was at all possible. She was like, 'No! I think it's true.' I turned over and looked at my phone and there were hundreds of emails and texts. I was like, 'Holy shit!'"
