Subscribe to Russell Crowe alerts


As Darren Aronofsky's ambitious retelling of the biblical tale of Noah opens in America this weekend, Russell Crowe continues his world tour, premiering the film in cities on every continent. This Saturday alone he'll attend three premieres: in Dublin, Edinburgh and Cardiff. Meanwhile, Emma Watson was photographed this week greeting fans as in New York she attended David Letterman's chat show to talk about the movie. The film hits UK and Irish cinemas next week. Watch a smartly dressed Emma Watson greeting over-eager fans outside 'Letterman' studios.

The voice cast of Rio 2 enjoyed a sunny premiere in Miami Beach this week, attended by Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx and George Lopez. A series of clips of the event shows the stars talking about the film and enjoying a youth choir singing hits with a Latin-infused beat. Watch Anne Hathaway celebrate 'Rio 2' release at The Fontainebleau Miami Beach premiere. Or take a look at the cast of 'Rio 2' enjoying the upbeat Choir at The Fontainebleau Miami Beach premiere.

In the English countryside, Michael Fassbender has been photographed on the atmospheric set of new the film version of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown), the film also stars Marion Cotillard, David Thewlis, Jack Reynor, Paddy Considine and Elizabeth Debicki. Check out the photos in which Michael Fassbender sports a cut on his head whilst filming for 'Macbeth' in the Surrey countryside.

Walk of Shame

As for new trailers this week, Walk of Shame looks like the most fun. Elizabeth Banks stars as a reporter lost in L.A. after a riotous night out. The film looks lively and very silly, with costars including James Marsden, Oliver Hudson and Ethan Suplee. It opens in April. Watch 'Walk of Shame' trailer.

More seriously, the teaser for The Giver looks like another futuristic thriller based on a best-selling novel about a seemingly perfect society in which a young person (a teen boy this time, played by Brenton Thwaites) changes the system. But it's the powerhouse casting of Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes that makes this one stand out. The film opens in August. Watch 'The Giver' trailer.

Brenton Thwaites also stars in The Signal, another sci-fi thriller that released a new trailer this week. He plays a guy who is kidnapped by what seems to be a government researcher (Laurence Fishburne) who thinks he has come into contact with something alien. The film looks intriguingly low-key and visually inventive. A hit at Sundance in January, it arrives in cinemas in June. Watch 'The Signal' Trailer.

Jupiter Ascending

And finally, there's a new trailer for Jupiter Ascending, the sci-fi blockbuster from Matrix directors Andy and Lana Wachowski. This trailer offers more of the story about a young woman (Mila Kunis) who is propelled into an interplanetary conflict when she meets a sexy half-human (Channing Tatum). Out in July, the film looks pretty epic. Watch 'Jupiter Ascending' Trailer.
