Harrison Ford (I)
Playing a Serbian posing as a Bosnian in the upcoming "Killing Season," John Travolta is going a rare route. It's debatable whether he can pull it off, but he doesn't have to worry about sounding all sorts of wrong if he's in the company of these actors with the worst movie accents.
15. Gabourey Sidibe, 'Tower Heist' (2011)
Playing a maid with a knack for cracking safes, Sidibe didn't initially plan on her character having a Jamaican accent. But "Tower Heist" director Brett Ratner requested it, and even with the use of a dialect coach,
Shia Labeouf on "Indiana Jones & The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull": "I think the audience is pretty intelligent. I think they know when you've made [a bad movie]. And I think if you don't acknowledge it, then why do they trust you the next time you're promoting a movie. […] We [Harrison Ford and Labeouf] had major discussions. He wasn't happy with it either. Look, the movie could have been updated. There was a reason it wasn't universally accepted." (via
• Post your questions for Byzantium director Neil Jordan
The big question concerning Saoirse Ronan – apart from how on earth one pronounces her first name (try rhyming it with "inertia") – has been when exactly she might cross the threshold into adult roles, and how. The Irish actor has only just turned 19, so it's hardly surprising she has spent her career playing children, though that rather under-represents the challenging nature of her parts to date.
Unusually for a young actor, she has achieved fame and acclaim without first passing through the brightly lit high-school corridors of the teen-movie genre. She was Oscar-nominated at the age of 13 for her otherworldly performance as Briony Tallis, the spiteful catalyst for catastrophe in Atonement; she
It's a risky business, filmmaking. Simon looks back at some bold, expensive 1990s movies where the gambles didn't quite pay off...
This summer's blockbuster season has got off to a startling start, with Iron Man 3 being widely praised for its willingness to rip up the rule book a little, as it continues the story of Tony Stark.
In fact, there's a subset of modern blockbusters - Nolan films, some X-Men features for instance - that are garnering increasing praise for taking bold choices with the material. That they're wagering a lot of movie studio money on projects and stories that once upon a time would have struggled to get through the system.
However, we'd argue that the 1990s was rich with such gambles too, it's just most of them never really made quite the levels of cash we're seeing now. So, here's a
The brazenly trashy, cheap-and-cheerful B-movie is more or less defunct in modern cinema. One of its few authentic latter-day practitioners was the film-maker David R Ellis, who has been found dead at the age of 60 in a hotel in South Africa, where he was preparing to make a live-action version of the violent anime Kite.
Ellis came to widespread attention in 2006 when he directed Snakes on a Plane, the exploitation action thriller with a title that doubled as its own synopsis. Samuel L Jackson played an FBI agent on board a flight packed with venomous snakes planted to kill the witness who is in his care. There have been dumber and more precarious murder plots in the movies, but not many.
Ellis was brought in as a replacement for the original director, Ronny Yu. When word circulated online of a proposed
Pitt did a fair amount of eating in his Oscar-nominated turn as Billy Beane in "Moneyball," but he chows down so much in so many movies, we're starting to wonder if the actor just gets hungry on set and brings his lunch into the scene with him.

Brad and Angie had previously told "Extra" their children were not thrilled with their absence during award season... perhaps they coaxed their parents into taking them out!
