Bill Murray Sofia Coppola

Doesn’t it seem like there’s never a normal, run of the mill story about Bill Murray? He's always either crashing someone’s party, dishing out advice to strangers or being honoured with his very own 'day'. But as an actor, Murray is still able to get us very giddy, all he needs to do is announce an exciting new work project. Case in point: this 'Christmas TV special'.

Bill MurrayBill Murray always manages to surprise us

Yes when you think of Bill Murray at Christmas time you probably have a vision of him in Scrooged, saying ‘bah humbug’ to it all. But this Christmas Murray looks set to show an altogether different side of himself, the side which apparently sings classic carols.

The Most Successful Women In The Film Industry


Sofia Coppola Jane Goldman Catherine Hardwicke Kathryn Bigelow

Despite an unfortunate continuation of women in subordinate roles, female actresses in Hollywood are very much in the ascendance, refusing to play second fiddle to the traditional male hierarchy. However, it is behind the camera where male domination prevails. Only four women in the entire history of the Academy Awards have been nominated for the Best Director Oscar, Lina Wertmüller for Seven Beauties (1976), Jane Champion for The Piano (1993), Sofia Coppola for Lost In Translation (2003) and Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker (2009). Bigelow is the only female director to take home the award. Such an overwhelming consortium of male influence seems perturbing, but a slew of female industry players are intent on overthrowing the status quo, breaking down gender barriers and paving the way for innovation on multiple levels. From the increasingly gargantuan Marvel juggernaut to low budget art-house pictures, women are beginning to make their mark in spheres in dire need of a feminine touch, free from a traditionally testosterone-fuelled male outlook.

Ariel, or the ‘Little Mermaid’ is one of those Disney characters that everybody still has a lot of affection for, no matter how old they are. Maybe it was her fiery red hair or that great singing voice, or perhaps just that the movie’s a perfect piece of Disney magic. Either way the character’s endearing quality is such that any talk of a new screen outing for her is bound to be met with squeals of excitement. Now though, things have got even better.

Hollywood's Golden Girl: In Praise Of Sofia Coppola


Sofia Coppola Francis Ford Coppola

Sofia Coppola was never exactly destined to pursue a career as a lawyer or a teacher. Born in New York City to artist Eleanor Coppola and 'The Godfather' director Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia had creativity in her genes from the offset. Her cousins Nicolas Cage, Jason Schwartzman and Robert Carmine all joined the family business, so it seems only natural that Sofia followed suit.

She made her screen debut when she was still a baby, starring as the baby boy who is baptised in 'The Godfather'. She would later replace actress Winona Ryder in the second and third movies in The Godfather trilogy, although her acting career would be plagued with accusations of nepotism and her acting panned by the critics.
