Bandai Namco Entertainment has now released 4 of the 6 new playable characters coming to Tekken 7 as part of the Season 2 content. Anna Williams and Lei Wulong were released as part of the Season 2 pass back in September and Vale Tudo expert Craig Marduk and wrestler Armor King were released yesterday.

A voice then asks if a group of prisoners are “pissing their pants yet” shortly before all hell breaks loose and Lucille gives everyone a very sound thrashing. Watch the

Variety reports that the Oscar winner will be awarded the SAG-aftra Foundation’s Actors Inspiration Award, an honor previously bestowed on the respective stars of “Scandal” and “Angie Tribeca.” The award pays tribute to artists for their career achievements and charitable work.

In addition to her Oscar statuette, Winslet is also the owner of an Emmy, three Golden Globes, three BAFTAs, and many other awards.

The Mountain Between Us,” Winslet’s latest film, just made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. The drama centers on two strangers who survive a plane crash but are left stranded on a remote snow-covered mountain.

As for her work off-screen, Winslet co-founded the Golden Hat Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to “[changing] the way people on the autism spectrum are perceived, by shining a light on their abilities and emphasizing their great potential.” She’s also worked with UK charities including Cardboard Citizens, a theater company that works with those who have been or are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless.

“Kate has been a game changer and role model in our industry, setting a sterling example for all artists and leaders to use their influence to give back to the greater welfare of others,” said SAG-aftra Foundation President JoBeth Williams in a statement. “We look forward to presenting her with this award for all she has accomplished, and all she has given back.”

The trophy will be presented at SAG-aftra’s Patron of the Artists Awards celebration, set to be held November 9 in Beverly Hills.

This year's Oscars ceremony went off alright, but not without a hitch (or two).

During the In Memoriam section, a photo of Australian producer Jan Chapman (Love Serenade, Lantana, The Babadook) was shown next to the name of late costume designer Janet Patterson, with whom Chapman worked on several Jane Campion films including The Piano, Bright Star and Holy Smoke..

Patterson died in October last year. Her final film was Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd, starring Carey Mulligan and Matthias Schoenaerts..

.I was devastated by the use of my image in place of my great friend and long-time collaborator Janet Patterson," the still-very-much-breathing Chapman told Variety..

"I had urged her agency to check any photograph which might be used and understand that they were told that the Academy had it covered.

Oscars In-Memoriam Mistake Shows Producer Who Is Still Alive

Many fans still can't stop talking about last night's big Oscar mix-up, where Warren Beatty and Faye Dunnaway were given the wrong card, and they announced La La Land for Best Picture, when it was actually Moonlight that had won the award. There was also another big mistake that was revealed last night after the In Memoriam segment, where it was revealed that the entry for late costume designer Janet Patterson actually featured a photo of the very alive Jan Chapman. Janet Patterson had passed away in October at the age of 60.

While Jan Chapman's name and occupation were in fact correct on the Oscars In Memoriam tribute, the picture was not, with the Academy using Jan Chapman's photo instead of Janet Patterson's image. Variety obtained an email statement from Jan Chapman, who reveals she was "devastated" the wrong photo was used during the segment. Here's what

Exclusive: Talking 'Creed' With Director Ryan Coogler

During this year's San Diego Comic Con I had a chance to meet and hang out for director Ryan Coogler as he and I were in the same panel over the summer, and we were just talking shop and just being fans of film. Now a few weeks ago I had a chance to talk to Coogler again about his upcoming film "Creed". The film reunites Coogler with his “Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed, and explores a new chapter in the “Rocky” story, starring Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role.

Here is what he had to say about the film.

My question is, was it you who come up with the idea to do some sort of like back story to Apollo Creed? How did this all come about? How did you plan the script?

Ryan Coogler: Yeah, it was my idea.

Nicole Kidman passionately kisses best friend Naomi Watts in a shower cap
Nicole Kidman was honoured at the Women in Film: Crystal + Lucy Awards last night (June 16), and celebrated by kissing close friend Naomi Watts.

The 47-year-old actress - who sparkled in a black sequinned dress - accepted the 2015 Crystal Award for Excellence in Film at the star-studded event, which celebrates creative and groundbreaking women excelling within their chosen fields.

Addressing the audience as she collected the trophy, the star revealed how she has long lived to regret turning down a part offered by Oscar-nominated Holy Smoke! director Jane Campion years ago.

Kidman revealed she declined the role because it required her to wear a shower cap and kiss a girl, and she had always imagined herself being the kind of actress who had long, flowing hair and snogged boys.

As she urged women to "take risks, raise our voices and honour the fire within", she also declared that she was "ready.

Elizabeth Olsen has a message for fellow actresses starting out in Hollywood - it doesn't destroy your career if you appear naked on screen.

The 26-year-old star told Net-a-Porter's The Edit that she took inspiration from a young Kate Winslet in choosing to reveal all for a part.
