The 10 Best Movie Infographics of 2012

Wayne Manor Infographic Movoto

They don't call it the "Information Superhighway" for nothing, you know.

Where would we be without Infographics? Sometimes you just can't grasp the general concept, fine details and/or basic facts of something unless you have a visual aid with pictures and charts and numbers and stuff. An Infographic is like a really cool PowerPoint presentation that someone else had to make and that you don't have to be in a conference room to look at. Get More »

Tom Hardy in Early Talks to Climb 'Everest' with Doug Liman

Tom Hardy sure has a knack for adventure. The versatile thesp, who's fresh off killer performances in both "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Lawless," is now in talks to take on (possibly) his biggest role yet—the lead in Doug Liman's next epic, "Everest." As reported by Deadline, if the deal goes through, Hardy will play George Mallory, the determined British climber who made not one, but three attempts to reach the summit of the world's tallest mountain back in the 1920s.

While the '20s were roaring stateside, WWI had left Great Britain pretty much decimated, and Mallory yearned to be the hero his country craved. He made his first two attempts without the help of oxygen (maybe he thought oxygen was for sissies?) but he had to turn back before reaching his goal. On the third trip, he softened a bit, and he and his climbing partner were using oxygen as they made their final push toward the top—too bad no one saw whether they actually got there. Talk about a bummer. Get More »

GALLERY: Accidental Hipsters in Movies

The hipster formula is as follows: If exclusivity is cool and hideous fashion is undesirable, then adopting hideous fashions because they are undesirable makes one exclusive. And this exclusivity, in turn, makes one cool. Now apply this philosophy to everything you own and... voila! You are a hipster! You will now be in the market for a Polaroid camera and declare that you were listening to bands no one's heard of before it was cool to listen to bands no one's heard of.

For those too square to know, hipsters are currently stuck on a nostalgic obsession with both the 1980s and 1880s, adopting the silliest and most anachronistic fashion choices of both simultaneously. The result is a horrifying mix of big glasses, curly mustaches, tight T-shirts and brimmed hats. We couldn't help but notice that Shia LaBeouf's Prohibition-era style in the new gangster film "Lawless" looks oddly... contemporary. So we've compiled a look back at movie characters who didn't realize they were being hip before anyone else was.

'The Possession' Scares Up Business at the Box Office

Lionsgate

All across the country, people took advantage of the long holiday weekend to pretty much do anything other than head to the theater, as "The Possession" topped the box office chart with just $17.7 million according to Film.com.

While that was enough to turn the Jeffrey Dean Morgan horror flick into a winner, the results marked the second weekend in a row that only one movie managed to break the $10 million mark, as second place finisher "Lawless" brought in just $9.7 million despite a cast that included Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jessica Chastain.

For a full run down of the box office numbers, including figures for returning hits "The Expendables 2," "The Bourne Legacy" and "The Dark Knight Rises," head to Film.com.

GALLERY: Tom Hardy Breaks Laws and Hearts

If anyone could convince us to embark on a life of "Lawless"-ness, it's Tom Hardy.

The British star has been making quite an impression over the past few years, whether in costume (he works those perfectly tailored suits in "Inception" like the former male model he is) or out (his naked cagefighting in "Bronson" is quite... memorable). Tom's even sexy with three-quarters of his face covered in "The Dark Knight Rises" (it's those piercing eyes) and with a questionable '70s 'do in "Tinker Tailor Solder Spy."

You'll need a long, cool, Prohibition-era drink after checking out our collection of Tom Hardy pics, which is overflowing with hotness that should be illegal. Knock him back.

My Favorite Movie: Dane DeHaan

"My favorite movie is probably 'Giant,' because it's an incredible performance by James Dean that I could watch over and over again.

"That's the one that really leaves me asking, 'What if he had the opportunity to do more of these things?' To see him in that movie is kind of unbelievable."

Dane DeHaan plays a moonshine maker and the best friend of Shia LaBeouf in the Depression-era crime drama "Lawless," now in theaters.

In many ways, Dane DeHaan is the emotional center of the gritty "Lawless," a Depression-era crime drama about the Virginia bootlegging operation of three brothers, played by Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke. DeHaan plays Cricket, a gentle soul who becomes a moonshine maker to assist his best friend Jack Bondurant (LaBeouf) and is later caught up in the extreme violence that occurs toward the end of Prohibition. The John Hillcoat-directed movie written by Nick Cave is based on a true story and opens in theaters on August 29.

Prior to "Lawless," DeHaan played a teen with extraordinary telekinetic powers in the found-footage film "Chronicle" and made an impression on TV shows like "True Blood" and "In Treatment." The 25-year-old up-and-comer chatted us up about the pain involved in playing Cricket in "Lawless" and his upcoming roles in two prestigious films. Get More »
