The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young
yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier. Get More »
Jessica Chastain — you go, grrrl!
The Oscar-nominated star of "Zero Dark Thirty" trades her trademark red mane for a short jet-black 'do (complete with accompanying tattoos) for her goth punk turn in "Mama," the Guillermo del Toro-produced frightfest about a rather, shall we say, over-protective ghost.
Jessica's new look has us wanting to start a band that only covers Sex Pistols songs ... and gather some pics of other hot punk rock chicks in flicks. Fight the power and get clickin' through our gallery.

It's a mad world when Chris Evans plays a contract killer whose front is an ice cream truck.
It's fun to see Captain American play a long-haired bad guy in "The Iceman," but it's the future General Zod, Michael Shannon, who takes center stage in this true-crime thriller about Richard Kuklinski, the notorious mob assassin who also happened to be a loving father and faithful husband.

Some people go to therapy. Tim Burton makes a music video.
The "Frankenweenie" director seems to be working out some personal issues with the music video for The Killers' "Here With Me," the new single from the band's latest album, "Battle Born." Some of it's kind of cute. And some of it might make your skin crawl a little.
We agree with Shock Till You Drop that the whole thing has a "Love Object" (remember that movie?) and "Lars and the Real Girl" (we know you remember that one) kind of vibe with its tale of a young weirdo pining after some sort of inanimate object made to look like a woman (in this case, a sort of wax museum statue). But there's a little more going on here than just a twisted yet whimsical love story ... Get More »
Ah, Hanukah! Festival of Lights! A time for Jews everywhere to get together in a spirit of peace, give gifts and sing songs. It's also a time for gentiles everywhere to ask questions like "So... what's the deal with Hanukah?" and "How do you spell Chanukah?" and "Why does it keep moving around the calendar like a celebratory hobo?"
These are good questions; deep questions. And who better to ask than Hollywood's Jewish stars! But who's Jewish? It's no shock that certain actors are from the tribe (shalom, Sasha Baron Cohen!), but Zac Efron? Get More »
Winona Ryder gets on the hog, our new Oldboy goes "Crazy" and Kenny Powers gets serious in this past week's casting news.
Ryder will soon be trying on some leather accessories as she signs on to play a former biker chick in "Homefront," according to Heat Vision. The film makes for a rare action movie role for Ryder, who will be playing the companion to a sleazy meth dealer (James Franco) who interferes with the quiet life being sought after by an ex-DEA agent (Jason Statham). Sylvester Stallone wrote the script, with Gary Fleder set to direct. Get More »
One of our favorite things about James Franco is the fact that he's not only really cool, but he's also kind of creepy. You know, he's super intense and seems to always be laughing at some private joke that only he understands, but at the same time, he's really hot. It's a hard combo to pull off, but somehow Franco does it.
Which is good for us as film fans, but maybe not quite so good for Winona Ryder in the new trailer for "The Letter." Get More »
In "The Woman in Black," Harry Potter himself (or rather, Daniel Radcliffe) takes on the darker side of the supernatural as he investigates a haunted estate and the dark history that brought one of its former residents back from the grave for revenge.
The "Woman" of the title is kind of a pain in the butt, what with all the murdering and all; but not every similarly clad woman is quite so gloomy. Some of our favorite filmic females have donned a dark look for some memorable roles, no doubt bolstered by the fact that black is slimming.
As Wesley Snipes said in "Passenger 57": "Always bet on black."
Winona Ryder is going to play a killer's wife who doesn't know she's a killer's wife.
The "Black Swan" beauty has signed on to join Michael Shannon and Chris Evans in the chilly mob thriller, "The Iceman," according to Deadline.
"The Iceman" tells the story of Richard Kuklinski (Shannon), a family man who carried out contract killings for the mob. Ryder will be playing Kuklinski's wife, Deborah, who had no idea that her husband was an assassin, with Evans playing Kuklinski's mentor, Robert Pronge. Get More »
Every guy in the world knows mermaids are super-hot, even if we can't quite figure out how compatible the whole "the birds and the bees" thing is when it comes time to hit the sack. Eh-hem.
All scaly tails aside, though, these sexy sirens of the sea are some of the most enchanting creatures of ancient folklore, and have wriggled their way from the ocean depths to the movie screen on more than one occasion. Whether they're the benevolent mermaids of "Peter Pan" or the nasty maneaters of "Harry Potter" or the new "Pirates of the Caribbean," these half-lady/half-fish hybrids have been a source of male fascination for centuries.
