The official announcement trailer for 'Blade Runner 2049' is finally here and while we still know little about the plot, we do get a glimpse of Ryan Gosling in his leading role as Officer K. We see him approaching the wreckage of what looks like a blimp and then an empty building in which he comes across a gun-wielding Harrison Ford who returns as Rick Deckard.

Real life Claire Underwood, or what?
So many female celebrities are speaking out against the gender pay gap in Hollywood, but how many of them are trying to make damn sure they don't become a victim of such sexism? 'House Of Cards' star Robin Wright put her foot down when it came to negotiating her pay to match co-star Kevin Spacey.
Robin Wright fought for her right to equal pay
How did she do it? Well, you might be interested to know that no disputes were involved, no lawsuit and no blackmail... well, almost no blackmail. In an interview with the Rockefeller Foundation, Wright revealed how she responded when she learned that Spacey was earning $500,000 per episode compared to her admittedly not-so-measly $420,000.

Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise and Seth MacFarlane face off at this weekend's box office, while Cruise goes the extra mile with a three-city premiere for Edge of Tomorrow. Trailers offer glimpses of Obvious Child, The Congress, Third Person and Big Hero 6...
Three big films hit cinemas this weekend in the UK (one of them opens next week in America), with a fantasy blockbuster taking on a sci-fi action thriller and a Wild West comedy for box office glory. Angelina Jolie's Maleficent is likely to emerge triumphant, thanks to high expectations. But Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow is getting much more positive reviews. And Seth Macfarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West is bound to be popular escapist entertainment. Take time out to read our Maleficent review, Edge of Tomorrow review and see what we said about Seth MacFarlane in A Million Ways to Die.
To mark the launch of Edge of Tomorrow, Tom Cruise and his costar Emily Blunt held an unprecedented triple premiere on two continents in one day. They started Wednesday morning at 9am with the massive world premiere in central London, where the film is set, then dashed across to Paris for a second premiere a few hours later at the location of the film's climactic battle.

Ari Folman’s long awaited follow up to Waltz With Bashir has finally arrived; the Israeli film maker plays with live-action, animation and fantasy in a truly original way with ‘The Congress’, which sees Robin Wright play a version of herself.
Robin Wright lets herself be recorded for future use
Wright became hugely famous two decades ago with The Princess Bride, both in the film and reality, but unlike reality, the Robin Wright in ‘The Congress’ spends the next two decades struggling to find work. So a deal is struck: Hollywood offers her one more chance by preserving her entire image, meaning she’ll star in movies for evermore without ever having a act again.

There are a few spoilers ahead - it would be ironic if you weren't forewarned.
We’ve come a long way since spoiling the end of The Sixth Sense was the worst thing someone could do. Nowadays, there are millions of ways to ruin plots, deaths and endings, and as a result we’ve become hypersensitive, syphoning genuine rage towards those who let slip that Lost was all a dream. Whoops.
Do these two come to loggerheads? Well, watch it and find out!
I haven’t seen the Sixth Sense, and I don’t have to – I know everything that happens in that film. During my first watch of The Sopranos, I’d close my eyes while walking through any shop that sold DVDs in case I caught sight of the complete boxset. One day I did, and I knew that every character on that boxset made it to the final series. I cried.

'House of Cards' is gaining momentum, though it should known when to put on the brakes.
It's been less than a week since Frank Underwood returned to our screens in House of Cards season 2 for more political scheming, though already, Netflix's signature series is turning its attention to the future. It's been a roaring success - the show scored nine Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe win for its first season and it's likely more will come its way for season 2.
When Will 'House of Cards' Come To An End?
Spacey has already spoken of the show's potential to run and run, though show creator Beau Willimon insists things will come to an inevitable conclusion.

Everyone is on board the House of Cards train by now.
House of Cards lost at last year’s Emmys (apart from Robin Wright’s well-deserved award), but it’s receiving all kinds of accolades ahead of the Season 2 Netflix premiere. On Thursday Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and the rest of the cast took to the red carpet at a special screening, held by the Director’s Guild of America. Love was in the air – love for the show that is. Looking equally as stunning on the red carpet, co-stars Robin Wright Penn and Kate Mara both made fashionable entrances – Wright in a simple, but elegant black dress and Mara in an uber trendy green mini. Kevin Spacey, looking dapper as ever, was also in attendance.

While the cast, the production team and a handful of lucky guests got to preview the second season, other fans of the series were getting increasingly restless. As it turns out, one of those fans was President Obama himself. The Commander-in-chief took to Twitter on Thursday, to send the following message: “Tomorrow: @HouseOfCards. No spoilers, please.”

Some folk celebrate Valentine's tomorrow, but we're more keen on the House of Cards premiere.
Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) returns in three tension-filled promos for Season 2 of the hit Netflix series House of Cards. The clips see the scheming congressman deliver some of his best lines in classic style (which is to say, with a lot of style): "For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain, there can be no mercy” is just one of his memorable nuggets of wisdom.
Welcome back, Congressman Underwood. We've missed you.
Fortunately for fans, House of Cards isn’t pulling a Game of Thrones and releasing the promos months in advance. The show’s second season will debut on Netflix this Friday (Valentine’s Day, how appropriate) and will be available for instant downloading and binge viewing in its entirety.

'House of Cards' season two promises, if the actor's comments are to be trusted, to be filled with even more twists, turns and scheming from anti-hero Frank Underwood. The complete second season will be available on Netflix on 14th February.
Season 2 of Netflix's political drama, House of Cards, will be available from the early hours of Valentine's Day (14th February) and promises to be filled with even more scheming from Frank Underwood, the politician we love to hate.

The last season ended with Underwood, played by Spacey, committing the ultimate crime against the troubled US Representative Peter Russo (Corey Stoll) and remaining inhumanly calm under pressure. As he continues with his schemes to become even more powerful it seems Underwood will go even further in this season of House of Cards.
As we gear up for season 2 of political thriller, watch three new promos.
It’s not long before you’ll be able to fill your face with House of Cards season 2 on Netflix, as the political thriller’s sophomore attack lands on Valentines Day. To further whet the appetite, three new promos have been released with the running motif: ‘welcome back’. Watch them below.

We were pretty excited to see the new House of Cards trailer hit, and not just because we can stream it on glorious 4K. No: there’s a certain ruggedness about season 2, and we can’t wait to see Frank Underwood - played by Kevin Spacey - step up his ruthless decimation of the U.S political hierarchy.
Netflix says the drama – based on a 1990 BBC series set in London – "slithers through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington DC." Before we carry on, though; here’s a brief recap of season 1.

[Spoilers] Will Frank survive as a crooked Vice President or will it all come tumbling down?
A year after the entire House of Cards season one appeared on Netflix we're getting set to devour season two with the kind of ruthless appetite for more that Frank Underwood would be proud of. The brilliant 13-part first season set the scene for house majority whip Frank Underwood's game-playing ascension to the Vice Presidency just as some of Washington's darkest secrets were beginning to be unearthed by Zoe Barnes and her team.
A veritable slow-burner of a drama, the compelling and addictive House of Cards features the well-placed Kevin Spacey as the relentlessly ambitious Democrat Frank Underwood alongside his icy, scheming wife Claire, played by the terrifyingly talented Robin Wright, who manages a non-profit organisation whilst setting her sights on undoing those who have wronged her or her powerful and manipulative husband.
Newcomers like 'House of Cards' and 'Master of Sex' replace the old guards like 'Mad Men' and 'Homefront' in the TV noms
The nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards were revealed this week and although there were few surprises in the movie nominations; in the television categories however, it's time for change in the established order of critically-acclaimed TV. Former nomination regulars like Mad Men and Homefront are nowhere to be seen in the nominees lists, replaced instead by the new order of critically-acclaimed shows.
Master of Sex, along with House of Cards, is now the show to beat
Master of Sex and House of Cards now look like the shows to beat, with Breaking Bad making what will be its final appearance at the Golden Globes with the series ending this year. This comes just a year after Homeland achieved the impressive feat of winning Best Drama Series, Best Male Actor and Best Female Actor all in one night, although this does mark the second year in a row that the 2007-2009 winner Mad Men has not appeared in the Best Drama category.

Netflix's 'House of Cards' To Return For Second Season Next Year
Get ready to start binge-watching some high-quality drama once again, as Netflix's original series House of Cards is returning to the online streaming site for its second season. The Kevin Spacey vehicle will be back on 14 February, 2014, with Netflix making the entire, 13-episode season available to stream from then.
The series was a hit last time around
Academy Award-winner Spacey will be back as the despicable US Senator Francis Underwood, who will continue to slither his way through the dark side of Washington D.C. to rise to the top of the political ladder, negotiating past all the greed, sex, love and corruption that lies in his way. Fellow Emmy-nominee Robin Wright will also be back for the second season, returning as Spacey's equally devious wife Claire Underwood, with director David Fincher and screenwriters Beau Willimon and Eric Roth all returning behind the scenes.

Continue reading: House Of Cards Season 2 Air Date: What's In Store For Frank Underwood?
Can season 2 even maintain the quality of season 1? We'll find out in early 2014.
Beau Willimon’s broody political thriller House of Cards was a success in its first season, with Kevin Spacey and co helping to bring streamed television to the forefront of the medium’s appeal.
It was no surprise, given the critical response and the record-breaking Emmy performance, that season two would shortly follow, but Netflix’s confidence in the show seems to have skyrocketed with talk of a third season commission already on the… cards.
Will season two make further Emmys history?
If you’ve watched House of Cards, then you’ll know Kevin Spacey’s character – the unflinching Frank Underwood – doesn’t take kindly to anything less than perfection.
Spacey's strong performance wasn't enough to bag an Emmy.
And while the moody political drama, based in Washington and shown exclusively on the streaming service Netflix, made history with its Emmy nominations, a sole award for David Fincher in the directorial discipline wouldn’t have left the scheming politician with much doubt: next year must be a victorious one.
Among arrivals at the 2013 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton were 'Pitch Perfect' star Rebel Wilson with her sister Liberty, 'House of Cards' star Robin Wright, Oscar winning movie director Steven Spielberg and the Grammy winning John Legend.
Some of our favourite quotes from The Princess Bride
The Princess Bride 25th anniversary has arrived and with it, a Blu-ray special edition featuring loads of brand new extras including interviews, behind the scenes action and much more.
This cult classic fairytale movie arrived on our screens in 1988 featuring a hilarious ensemble cast that has kept us gripped for a quarter of a century of watching. It is the story of how a beautiful young woman named Buttercup (Robin Wright) is forced into almost marrying the deceitful Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), before being captured by a group of not so bright but not so evil crooks; a Spanish fencer named Inigo (Mandy Patinkin), a Turkish giant named Fezzik (André the Giant) and their Sicilian boos Vizzini (Wallace Shawn). However, along the way she is reunited with her former love Westley (Cary Elwes) who she believed to be dead until then, and they all go about attempting to bring down Buttercup's fiancé, the future King of Florin.
Although it was never a major success at the box office, this classic Oscar nominated film was well-received by critics on its release and it has remained a family favourite ever since, being especially regarded as one of the most quotable films of all time. Some of the best The Princess Bride quotes are worth bringing up again:

A few years later, after the deaths of both Carlton and his mother, Bobby is a puppy-eyed teenager who inherited Carlton's magnetic personality and utter lack of guile, which is what attracts another teen, the gawkier Jonathan, to him. After his dad dies, Bobby moves permanently into the Glover household as a sort of unofficial adopted brother to Jonathan - except that they're brothers who occasionally make out and smoke joints with Mrs. Glover (Sissy Spacek). The rather uptight Jonathan (he wears glasses and has braces, you see) can't handle Bobby's openness and is more than a little jealous of how eagerly her mother has embraced him into their family, and their romantic relationship stalls.

The novel White Oleander was a 1999 selection of the ubiquitous Oprah Winfrey Book Club and you can tell why: There are so many brutally dysfunctional people in the story that Dr. Phil could produce months of television delving into their sorry lives. Astrid (Alison Lohman) is an only child, growing up in the Hollywood Hills with Ingrid (Michelle Pfeiffer), her eccentric, urban-arty mother. After a series of events that Kosminsky smartly keeps off-camera, Ingrid kills her boyfriend. Or does she? And how? Regardless, the beautiful, hopeful, young Astrid is picked up by state services and sent to live in a double-wide with a foster family.
