A Week In News: North Korea Threatens Seth Rogen, George Clooney Gets Angry, And Robin Thicke Is Knocked Out


Seth Rogen Garth Brooks Robin Thicke George Clooney James Franco Uzo Aduba Ben Affleck Peter Capaldi

The Interview

Seth Rogen Vs. North Korea: Seth Rogen should be feeling a little nervous right now. The actor and funnyman, who is preparing for the fall release of new movie The Interview, has been threatened after North Korea issued an official complaint to the UN. The shady country raised its hackles over the plot of Rogen's new movie, which depicts a plot to kill dictator Kim Jong-Un. This is unbelievable. If you want to thumb your nose at the Supreme Leader, go giggle at the poster - it's hilarious.

George Clooney Vs. The Daily Mail: George Clooney should only have seating arrangements and wedding cake tasting on his mind at the moment but the Gravity actor has had to engage in battle with The Daily Mail over comments the tabloid made alleging that the mother of Clooney's fiancée, Amal Alamuddin, was not happy with her daughters upcoming nuptials on religious grounds - a claim the actor has called a "lie." Clooney got angry, the Mail apologised, Clooney got angrier.

Gone Girl Trailer


Nick Dunne finds himself at the fore of a police investigation when his wife Amy mysteriously goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. He has mixed emotions about the whole thing as he enlists volunteers to help find her; their marriage has been on the rocks after he lost his job and dragged Amy away from New York to open a new business. Their relationship was often volatile, further implicating his involvement in her disappearance. A part of him is not so worried about her; he knows how manipulative and deceitful she can be, but unfortunately his lack of visible devastation on TV goes solidly against him for those who are sure he's killed her. As it turns out, he's not so honest either and things come to a head when it turns out that every person in this story has a secret.

Henry Cavill Ben Affleck

The first official, bona fide, straight from the horse’s mouth, genuine image from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has arrived, and it sees Henry Cavill as the caped superhero once more. 

He’s standing fully clad in his Superman gear, looking into the camera with a forlorn expression. The whether is pretty terrible; maybe that’s got something to do with it. Or maybe he’s waiting to meet Batman. 

The keen fans amongst you will have already noticed that Metropolis probably isn’t the city in the background. No, what we’re looking at is likely director Zak Snyder’s first attempt at Gotham City.

Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Celebrate Anniversary With Old-School Romance


Ben Affleck Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner celebrated their nine year anniversary in Detroit on Sunday (29th June). The Hollywood couple have been spending time in the city as Affleck films his upcoming blockbuster movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Instead of jetting back to L.A. to celebrate their anniversary in the company of their celebrity friends, the couple chose to roll out a little old school romance and go on an intimate dinner date to a local Detroit restaurant, Bistro 82, a fine-dining establishment in Detroit.

Justin Near of Near Perfect Media, which represents the bistro's AFB Hospitality Group, spilled the beans on the couple's appearance, saying that they arrived in the early evening and stayed for an hour before going on elsewhere. "A lot of people did a double take," Near told ABC News. "It was just the two of them, just like any other couple celebrating their anniversary."

It's Official! Jason Momoa Will Be Warner Bros.' Aquaman In "Batman Vs. Superman"


Jason Momoa Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Gal Gadot Zack Snyder Jesse Eisenberg Jeremy Irons

It has been confirmed: DC now has its Aquaman and it’s none other than Jason Momoa. The news that Momoa will play the DC Comics superhero Aquaman in both the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and its sequel Justice League was confirmed by Variety, after months of heavy speculation.

Jason Momoa
Momoa cleverly brushed off the Aquaman rumors, right until his contract was confirmed.

Back in December, it was reported that Momoa was in talks to play Aquaman, in addition to the already announced main cast, which includes Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor (that announcement raised a fair few eyebrows) and Jeremy Irons as Alfred.

Charlie Cox Ben Affleck

Meet your new Daredevil – Charlie Cox. The Boardwalk Empire has been hired by Marvel/Netflix to portray Matt Murdoch, the blind lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen and his horned alter ego, according to the LA Times. So we can all move past the Ben Affleck incident already.

So can Cox pull it off? 

Murdoch’s other most memorable role was in the Neil Gaiman adaptation Stardust, but the 31-year-old actor is otherwise new to the fantasy genre and certainly new to the Marvel universe. The entertainment powerhouse is currently expanding its media presence even further with four upcoming Netflix series, including ones centered around Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and of course, Daredevil.

Batman V Superman Might Be The Dawn Of Justice, But Who Are The Justice League?


Ben Affleck Henry Cavill

The subtitle for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman v Superman movie has been officially announced as Dawn of Justice, meaning it's pretty clear where this one is going. We already knew that a Justice League movie was next on Snyder’s list, but the subtitle certainly implies that this movie will serve as a set up for the fourth instalment. But who are the Justice League and why should we be excited to see them together on screen?

Superhero collectives don’t get much bigger than The Justice League, that is, if you ignore the Avengers. But for DC Comics, The Justice League has been their ultimate team of superheroes since the 1960s.

Ben Affleck Banned From The "Hard Rock" Blackjack Table For Age-Old Gambler Trick: Counting Cards


Ben Affleck Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck might seem like the general “nice guy” type, but he has a few tricks up his sleeve. Affleck has reportedly been banned from the  Hard Rock Las Vegas Casino (well, the blackjack table anyway), after he was caught counting cards. According to the New York Daily News, the Argo director was playing blackjack, when his lucky streak attracted the attention of a security guard.

Ben Affleck
Affkeck's unusually lucky night caught the attention of a casino security guard.

“You are too good,” the guard told the Oscar-winning star Monday night at the casino’s high-rollers’ blackjack table, according to a source for The News. Then, in a rather embarrassing turn for Affleck, he and his wife were shuttled back to their hotel by a car, ordered by the casino’s management. Affleck and actress wife Jennifer Garner were in Sin City for a romantic getaway before Affleck starts filming his “Batman” reboot in Los Angeles and Detroit.

Ben Affleck Is "Welcome Back" At Las Vegas Casino Despite Card Counting Rumours


Ben Affleck Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck is not banned from playing blackjack at a Las Vegas casino, contrary to reports which suggested Affleck had been asked to leave the establishment after he was discovered counting cards.

According to reports on RadarOnline, Affleck was allegedly caught counting cards at two Vegas casinos and an APB (all-points bulletin) was sent out to all casinos to be weary of the Good Will Hunting actor. Allegedly, the bulletin made casinos aware of Affleck's presence in Vegas and related the incident in which he was apparently caught counting cards. A note on the bulletin stated Affleck "has been observed playing blackjack at multiple Las Vegas Strip properties, and is suspected of moving his wagers with the count. He was reportedly backed off at one off-Strip casino."

The incident occurred, according to reports, on April 28th when Affleck was playing blackjack at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Allegedly, Affleck was told by security he had to stop playing immediately. Affleck was visiting Vegas with his wife Jennifer Garner at the time of the alleged incident. Another casino also allegedly banned Affleck, namely the Wynn Properties resort.

Whilst card counting is not illegal, it is unacceptable in gambling establishments and casinos employ both security and specialist recognition software in order to prevent it. Affleck was allegedly using his chip stack as a means of counting the cards, a common technique professional gamblers use, according to reports in the San Jose Mercury News.

However, these reports may have been exaggerated as both casinos have denied any ban. The Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas released a statement which reads: "Mr Affleck, a value guest of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time." The other casino in question has also denied barring Affleck from their establishment.

Introducing Ray Fisher As Warner Bros. "Batman Vs. Superman" Cyborg


Ray Fisher Zack Snyder Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Gal Gadot Amy Adams

The Batman vs. Superman movie casting may have had comic book fans on the brink of desperation up until now, but it looks like Zack Snyder and Co. may have gotten one thing right. Meet your new Cyborg – Ray Fisher. Now, Fisher is primarily a stage actor, although that has been known to work for past superhero movies and he has been cast as Victor Stone. That’s all we know at this point, according to Variety. Early reports claimed that Fisher was being considered for a part in Snyder's Star Wars Episode VII, but it looks like he was transferred to another big-budget Snyder production.

Ray Fisher
Fisher's background is mostly theatrical.

The character has a minor role in Batman vs. Superman, but this casting and Fisher’s appearance are intended to pave the way for future appearances by the superhero within the Justice League franchise that Warner Bros. is setting up for. A little background on Cyborg: the character made his first appearance in 1980's "DC Comics Presents" #26. In the "New 52" continuity, he's a high school athlete who, after getting caught in a S.T.A.R. Labs explosion, is given powerful bionic abilities that lead to him becoming a founding member of the Justice League.

Nick and Amy Dunne are a couple whose marriage is struggling following the loss of Nick's journalism job and their subsequent move away from New York City. Nick sets up a new business to support them, but nothing seems to be cutting the tension between them as their relationship gets more and more fractured. When Amy goes missing on their fifth anniversary, a series of suspicious circumstances point him out as the prime suspect in a possible murder investigation; though he denies any involvement in her disappearance, we are left questioning everything he says when his true, deceitful nature starts to shine through. However, it soon becomes clear that he's not the only dishonest character in this tale as nobody is quite what they're making out to be.

'Gone Girl' Trailer, A Critical Discussion


Ben Affleck Rosamund Pike

We’ve been waiting for the Gone Girl movie to come out, well, practically since the book did. The best-selling thriller was an international sensation, while the film is currently in post-production, due out in October later this year.  There's going to be a lot of discussion over this movie in the months to come, you don't adapt such a popular novel without a lot of debate over pretty much everything.

Ben Affleck

Thankfully, the trailer has finally been released, but does it live up to our expectations? The answer to that is a big fat YES! And then some. So, let’s take a look at it in a bit more detail. Playing over the solemn opening vigil is Richard Butler’s version if Elvis Costello’s ‘She’. The lyrics “She may be the face I can’t forget, a trace of pleasure or regret, may be my treasure of the price I have to pay” drift eerily over shots of Nick Dunne, played by Ben Affleck, addressing a crowd who have gathered in the hope of finding his missing wife, Amy, played by Rosamund Pike. Amy has mysteriously disappeared, their home shows traces of a struggle, but Nick denies knowing anything about where she may have gone.

Ben Affleck Is Creepy And Questionable In First Trailer For David Fincher's "Gone Girl"


Ben Affleck Rosamund Pike Neil Patrick Harris Tyler Perry David Fincher

The first trailer for David Fincher’s Gone Girl is out. The last bit of news about the Gillian Flynn adaptation came out months ago, so the trailer provides a helpful reminder that A. The project is still moving ahead and B. It looks quite good at this point. Ben Affleck plays Nick Dunne, whose wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. Nick soon ends up as the primary suspect in the police investigation  and has to find his wife to prove his innocence.

Gone Girl Promo
The first trailer gives us very little to go on.

The new trailer emphasizes the investigation and the pressure that Affleck’s character feels as the suspicion falls squarely on him. It also seems to feature Amy’s lifeless body, meaning that Nick will face a murder investigation at some point in the film. The trailer also plays up the barrage of media attention that Nick and the investigation attract, so this will probably be a prominent subject in the film.

The most shocking break up news of the week goes to Glee star Naya Rivera and now ex-fiancee Big Sean. The pair have called it quits amid rumours of infidelity and Rolex theft. Naya tweeted “@bigsean stealing rolexes from a lady’s house now. Maybe cuz I’m on Glee and making more money or something. #triflin.” Although the tweet was quickly removed, the plot is definitely thickening.

Naya Rivera Big Sean Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called time on their relationship

These others celebs also decided to end their very high profile engagements, although none of them accused each other of stealing expensive watches. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck AKA Bennifer were a bit of an odd couple to even begin with. In 2003 the couple were involved in an extremely high profile relationship, going so far as to co-star in a couple of god awful movies. The engagement was broken off in 2004, allegedly because Ben wasn’t ready to give up single life. Which makes sense because a year later he married Jennifer Garner. Burnnnnn.

Unlike Jennifer Lawrence and her rather normal best friend, Laura Simpson, celebs often pick other famous people to have as their BFFs. They all probably bump into each other at so many events that it’s difficult not to end up practically joined at the hip. Some of these celebrity BFFs you’ll already know about, some you’ll be totally surprised to hear have even met!  The phrase chalk and cheese comes to mind.

Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have been BFFs since their Monica and Rachel days. The pair have seen each other through weddings and divorces, children and various film/TV projects. “We just have fun, we laugh, we’re inseparable and it’s great”, Cox said of Aniston, while her best friend in turn dubbed her “the most dependable and loyal”.

Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck: Gwyneth Paltrow's Relationships Before Chris Martin


Gwyneth Paltrow Ben Affleck Brad Pitt

We were all surprised when Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their separation by way of a post on Paltrow’s Goop website on Tuesday evening. The couple, who have been married for 10 years and had two children together announced they were ‘consciously uncoupling’, and thus the showbiz world began mourning another high profile couple. But for Gwyneth a high profile split is nothing new, actually she’s had her fair share of famous romances.

Gwyneth PaltrowGwyneth Paltrow has announced her 'uncoupling' from Chris Martin

Before there was Chris and before there was Angelina, Hollywood’s hottest couple was Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow. Although now the two might seem like an unlikely pairing, back in the mid nighties they were the hot couple of the moment. These two set out to define the era for star couples, sporting matching cropped blonde hair and sometimes even matching outfits, (too far). They even got engaged! Although they might have seem like a young Hollywood dream come true, sadly it wasn't to be and they split in 1997 after three years of dating. Gwyneth would later take responsibility for the break up, telling Diana Sawyer ‘My kind of internal stuff really tripped up that whole relationship and I felt really responsible, and also like I was the architect of my own misery … I just made a big mess out of it.’.

Star Wars Episode VII isn’t the only movie currently shrouded with mystery and dogged by rumours. Batman vs. Superman still remains an enigma to us, but we’ve done some investigation and managed to pool together what we know so far about the movie.

it has been confirmed that Henry Cavill will reprise his Man of Steel role and slip back into his very clingy superhero suit to play Superman (won't hear any ladies complaining there), although Christian Bale won’t be following (in his Batman) suit. Ben Affleck is billed to take over from Bale and don the Dark Knight cape. Website Movie Pilot is claiming that Affleck’s Batman will be forty years old and retired from superheroism. Since his retirement Batman has accumulated his gang of super pals, NightWing, BatWing, BatGirl and RedRobin. Batman’s best known sidekick, Robin, will allegedly have been killed by The Joker, who had returned to Gotham after the events of The Dark Knight Rises.

It will star comedian Tom Papa – a family man who doesn’t see much of his family. To remedy this, he overhauls his life, changing career to spend more time with the ones he loves. We’re assuming, somewhere down the line, it’s not what he assumed it would be.

Alfonso Cuaron looks like a firm favourite to take home the Academy Award for Best Director when the Oscars roll around this March. The Gravity director was given the top gong at last night's (25 Jan.) Directors Guild Of America Awards, an honour than can only heighten his chances of taking home Hollywood's top prize in a few weeks.

In only seven instances in the DGA Awards' 66 year history has the Best Director Oscar gone to someone who has not won the top honour for directors, with the last instance of this happening coming last year when Ben Affleck won the award, but was not even nominated for the Best Director category at the Oscars for his work on Argo. According to Oddschecker.com, Cuaron is the odds on favourite to take home the Best Director gong in March's ceremony, with 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen his nearest competitor.

10. A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III - 
Charlie Sheen exploits his bad-boy image in this fractured comedy in which he plays a paranoid idiot who thinks his ex is trying to kill him. But the story is wafer-thin, and the film is almost overpoweringly indulgent.

Could Joaquin Phoenix Play Lex Luthor?

Fans of the 39 year-old Walk The Line actor won't be used to seeing Phoenix star in such big-name, huge budget action blockbusters which means the Batman Vs.

Jason Momoa In Talks For 'Superman Vs Batman' - Are We Looking At A Justice League Movie?


Jason Momoa Superman Batman Zack Snyder Ben Affleck Henry Cavill

More news from the upcoming 'Superman Vs Batman' movie as Jason Momoa is apparently a definite maybe to join the cast.

The 'Conan the Barbarian' star could be set to star as Martian Manhunter in the upcoming film, which currently has no official title but will serve as a sequel to this year's 'Man Of Steel'. The character is one of the superhero members of the DC comic book team, the Justice League of America so if this suggestion is true, it could throw into question an 'Avengers' style movie given that Wonder Woman will also make an appearance in the movie.

Kryptonian supervillain Doomsday from the Batman franchise is another possibility for Momoa; a character known to be the only supervillain to have ever managed to kill Superman - a storyline that appeared in the 1992 comic 'The Death of Superman'.

Batman To Batman: Don't Wee In The Suit. Bale Gives Affleck The Superhero 411


Christian Bale Ben Affleck

We thought Christian Bale might have some advice for Ben Affleck, but we assumed it would be some sort of grandiose speech detailing the intricacies of the character and the importance he holds to millions across the globe. Just ask Batkid.

But it wasn’t anything like that, he just told Affleck not to take a pee in the suit, which is basically telling an adult man not to urinate while he has his work clothes on. Good advice, really.

Let's All Talk About Jaimie Alexander's Naked Dress [Pictures]


Jaimie Alexander Henry Cavill Ben Affleck Zack Snyder

Jaimie Alexander has become one of this week's most talked-about actresses, less for the rumor that she's preparing to become the next Wonder Woman, and more for her daring choice of outfit to the recent premiere of Thor: The Dark World.

Jaimie AlexanderAll Eyes Were On Jaimie Alexander At The 'Thor: The Dark World' Premiere.

Indeed, Alexander did turn up wearing one of the most revealing dresses we've ever seen: the bold attire showed us the entire length of her body from neck to toe but was kept "modest" by some clever wavy, opaque panelling. The Azzaro outfit has grabbed headlines because Ms. Alexander is very clearly not wearing any underwear. When she turned and walked away from the cameras, we were hit with the back of the dress which gave an equally surprising flash of buttock. See all our photos of Jaimie Alexender's dress here.

Jaimie Alexander made sure all eyes were on her at the Thor: The Dark World premiere when she arrived in the most revealing dress we've seen all year. However, everyone's thoughts were mulling over whether Jaimie's Thor character, Lady Sif, was actually going to turn out to be Wonder Woman.

If it emerges that Sif will be the female lead in the upcoming Superman Vs. Batman movie, then a Wonder Woman transformation will be a sure bet. Otherwise, it could turn out that Wonder Woman has her own movie with Alexander attached.

'Gravity' Leads The Way At The Box Office And Sets New October Record Too


Sandra Bullock George Clooney Ben Affleck Justin Timberlake

Gravity has proved to be the unlikely success story of early October thanks to the overwhelming word-of-mouth success. Having been heralded by the internet long before it was given it's official release on Friday, 4 October, the film rode out it's first weekend stay at the box office with immense success, gaining further praise and breaking the October box office record along the way.

Gravity
Gravity has soared to success

Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, both of whom (Bullock in particular) are being touted for awards success thanks to their performances in the film, Gravity has been described as an out of this world ocular treat, held together thanks to the gripping direction of Alfonso Cuaron and the performance of the two stars. This critical and internet-fuelled momentum has seen the film smash previous box office records for the month of October by bringing in an estimated $55.6 million over the weekend. As well as beating the record previously held by Paranormal Activity 3, the film is also the best opening for both of the film's stars, beating The Heat and Batman and Robin respectively.

Box Office Preview: Can 'Parkland' Take On Gravity's Pull, Runner Runner's Star Quality?


Zac Efron Justin Timberlake Ben Affleck George Clooney Sandra Bullock Alfonso Cuaron

Three films go head to head this weekend, all with reasonable claim to the top spot. But will the audiences go for a historical to learn about the demise of JFK; head for the stars with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck or be sucked in by Gravity’s delightful pull.

Despite some mediocre reviews, Parkland strings together some attractive qualities: a bona fide history lesson, a great cast and, of course, Zac Efron’s face, which has proven to be a marketable asset up until now, so why would that change now? There are two things that mean Parkland won’t be top of the box office come Monday.

Runner Runner Review


Bad

Clearly something went horribly wrong as this thriller was being made, because despite a solid cast, gorgeous locations and an intriguing premise, the film is an incoherent mess. Sure, it looks achingly cool, but there isn't a single moment when the characters' motivations make any sense. And there's never a hint of suspense or danger.

It doesn't help that the set-up revolves around two of the least cinematic things on earth: finances and computers. Timberlake plays Princeton grad student Richie, who runs a gambling website to pay his tuition but loses his savings when another site cheats him. So he heads to Costa Rica to confront the online casino boss Ivan (Affleck). Impressed with his initiative, Ivan offers him a job, and soon Richie has more cash than he can possibly spend. But for some reason, all he wants is Ivan's colleague-girlfriend Rebecca (Arterton). Then a nosey FBI agent (Mackie) forces Richie to help him take Ivan down.

Director Fuhrman showed considerable promise with another renegade loner in The Lincoln Lawyer, but this film simply refuses to fill in enough of the gaps. Nothing that happens here is remotely convincing, as the characters are continually thrust into half-developed scenarios. Perhaps there's a more coherent longer version out there, because this one feels like it was edited with a machete. Even as a cautionary tale about the dangers of greed, this story has nothing relevant to say.
