Since she was pulled off the streets of New York at age 14 to star in the controversial "Kids," Rosario Dawson continues to make an impression on screen with her provocative choices. Whether she goes for laughs in "Clerks II," takes a wild ride in Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof" or becomes a lethal warrior prostitute in Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City," Dawson rarely plays it safe.
Dawson continues her cinematic fearless streak in Danny Boyle's mind-bending "Trance," which opens in U.S. theaters on April 5. The film tells the story of a fine art auctioneer named Simon (James McAvoy) mixed up with a criminal gang headed by Franck (Vincent Cassel), who seeks out the help of mysterious hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Dawson) to recover a lost Goya painting. The stakes quickly rise in this modern noir as the boundaries between reality, hypnotic suggestion and suppressed emotions blur.
We sat down for a face-to-face session with the always hypnotic Dawson and chatted about her susceptibility to suggestion, why she's okay with being nude in "Trance" and what freaks her out more than anything. Get More »
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is largely considered to be on top of the world at the moment thanks to "Inception," "The Dark Knight Rises," "Looper" and his many other cinematic conquests, and whaddya know? The kid's stock is still on the rise.
Levitt's been tapped to portray Johnny, a pro gambler straight from the School of Cool - a role which was written specifically for the movie and previously offered to Johnny Depp. Get More »
With soccer moms now taking pole dancing aerobics at the Y, it’s safe to say that stripping (not to mention its costumed cousin, burlesque) has seduced mainstream America ... for better or worse.
However, for every relatively whimsical look at the profession ("The Full Monty," "Sin City"), there seems to be at least two darker examinations. In the case of "About Cherry," which has commenced with putting on a show in theaters as of today, sometimes working in a strip club can lead to stripping (and doing other stuff) on a porn set ... and a dubious romance with a coke-addicted lawyer (James Franco).
Still, whether their stories are super-serious or all in good fun, movie strippers certainly provide the eye candy along with a sense of intriguing, unattainable mystery. Here are 15 of our favorite on-screen adult entertainers. Get More »
Michael Clarke Duncan was a big actor in every sense of the word, a former bodyguard who got a huge break at the age of 41 with a stunning performance in "The Green Mile," and turned in an eclectic range of memorable roles in action, comedy, and dramas.
After tragically dying of a heart attack yesterday at age 54, we're paying tribute to the man by laying out his five career-best filmic turns.

In honor of Rihanna making a splashy debut in the ocean-bound blockbuster "Battleship," we're locked, loaded and counting down some of the sexiest screen sirens to handle monster weapons.
That's right, we're bringing out the big guns, in more ways than one, as these scorching hot ladies show us a thing or two about proper marksmanship.
Here's some news that probably should've hit somewhere around 2006.
Seven (!) years after the release of "Sin City," filmmaking duo Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are ready to officially begin production on what was once the highly anticipated sequel, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For."
"A Dame to Kill For" is one of the better "Sin City" books written and illustrated by Miller (this writer might even say it's the all-time best, next to "That Yellow Bastard"). The story features ex-newspaper photographer turned seedy private investigator Dwight McCarthy (before he received the plastic surgery that made him look like Clive Owen in the first movie) becoming sexually obsessed with an irresistible femme fatale (and former lover), Ava Lord (a role we have a feeling will be offered to some hottie Rodriguez alum like Rose McGowan or Salma Hayek).

Finally, a worthy companion piece to "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."
We're not sure what inspired someone to recreate the "Sin City" trailer with footage from animated Disney films (especially six years after "Sin City" came out), but you know what? By jove, it works!
If nothing else, "Walt Disney's Sin City" shows us that there's more subversive imagery in Disney movies and cartoons than we probably realize. They certainly didn't need to take any creative liberties with recreating Jessica Alba's striptease -- ol' Walt was definitely a fan of burlesque. Get More »
Like his sometimes-partner in crime, Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez loves his leading ladies powerful, in control, and hot to the touch. In his latest B-movie homage "Machete," Rodriguez serves up not one but three badass babes (Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan).
Since first breaking out onto the scene will his tiny-budget debut, "El Mariachi," in which Consuelo Gomez starred as sexy bar owner Domino, Rodriguez has remained enamored with his flaming femmes. Get More »
