This Friday will kick off the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, and though our old Revolutionary War adversaries might be our allies now, that doesn't mean the U.S. of frickin' A. isn't ready to bring the thunder.
Using our powers of make-believe and fantasy, we've assembled athletic champions from the entirety of movie history to give us a clear advantage towards the race for Olympic glory in every sport of the XXX Olympiad. Get More »
Taylor Kitsch as "John Carter," the Confederate captain who finds himself transported to Mars, is certainly a sight to behold (rippling abs, etc). But if anyone can rival him for hottest life on Mars, it's Lynn Collins as princess Dejah Thoris. If we'd known Martians were this sexy, we would colonized the planet years ago, are we right?

Despite being hidden underneath that iconic suit of armor, Jeremy Bulloch has carved out a comfortable piece of immortality as the man behind Boba Fett. The ruthless bounty hunter first appeared in cartoon form as the only watchable part of the "Star Wars Holiday Special" in 1978, followed by Bulloch's portrayal in both "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."
Since biting the dust in the Great Pit of Carkoon, Boba Fett has lived on in endless merchandising and brought Bulloch the adulation of fans at conventions across the globe. Fett's cult status even inspired Bulloch's autobiography "Flying Solo: Tales of a Bounty Hunter," not to mention a song by MC Chris.

Take a closer look at the most diabolical villains ever captured on film and you may notice some fur poking out of the corner of the screen. Supervillains need love, too, and though they have little use for human beings -- aside from as expendable henchmen -- they save their cuddly, maternal side for their devoted pets. And through this special kind of unconditional love, the supervillains reveal their vulnerability and, ironically, their own humanity in the process.
Among these vile critters is Gargamel’s cat Azrael, who will soon get the CGI treatment in "The Smurfs" reboot, opening July 29. We present our list of Azrael and other beloved beasts, arranged from the most innocent companion to the most menacing accomplice.
"This will be a day long remembered. It has seen the end of waiting for an official Star Wars Blu-ray release date and will soon see the debut of a six-film saga box set."
I imagine that's what ol' Darth would be saying right now if he weren't busy at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Earlier today, Lord Vader joined Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment President Mike Dunn at CES to announce the new Blu-ray release, vowing "The forces of the Empire will be at your disposal to assure the success of this endeavor."
