The ace partnership between filmmaker Paul Feig and actress Melissa McCarthy evolves into something formidable with this raucous action comedy, which simultaneously spoofs the espionage genre and provides some genuine thrills. From ensemble player (Bridesmaids) to costar (The Heat) and now to the star of the show, McCarthy finds a role worthy of her talents, subverting rather than exploiting her distinct physicality.
She plays Susan Cooper, a desk-jockey at the CIA who works with the field agents, guiding them by radio link through their dangerous paces. When star spy Bradley Fine (Jude Law) is taken out of service and all other top agents have their covers blown, the boss (Allison Janney) has little choice but to send the well-trained Susan into the field to take down the villainous arms dealer Rayna (Rose Byrne). With her best pal Nancy (Miranda Hart) as her office-bound helper, Susan gets into a series of disguises and travels to Paris, Rome and then Budapest. And despite the constant attempts of rogue agent Rick Ford (Jason Statham) to "help" her, Susan gets ever closer to Rayna and her gangster buyer Sergio (Bobby Cannavale).
The relatively simple plot is overcrowded with characters and subplots that add absurd layers of humour to the film, almost all of which are genuinely hilarious. Best of all, none of the laughs come at the expense of Susan, a capable, smart, witty woman who's the perfect alter ego for McCarthy (and certainly much more engaging than her obnoxious-slob persona in The Heat or Tammy). She has terrific chemistry with all of her costars, flirting shamelessly with the Bond-like Law, an amusingly swaggering Statham and especially the purringly hysterical Byrne. As always, the great Janney steals every one of her few scenes. Less effective is an extended goofy cameo by Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, who at least shows willing to dive into some ridiculous comedy. There's also another terrific foil in Susan's local contact Aldo, played with leering, opportunistic relish by Peter Sarafinowicz.

The rap star's young son is already carving out a successful modelling career for himself!
50 Cent isn't the only person in his family who demand a lot of money for their services. The rap star recently revealed that his 2-year-old son, Sire, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy, has already started a financially successful modelling career.
50 Cent's son is already a successful model
During a radio interview with Angie Martinez on New York's hip-hop radio station Power 105.1, 50 Cent told the show's host that his young son has "got a (modelling) deal now with Kidz Safe."

The duo were in a relationship throughout 2003 until they went through a bitter break up later that year.
Almost 12 years ago in 2003, Vivica A. Fox began a very passionate relationship with 50 Cent, but the pair famously went their separate ways after a sour break up later that year. However, over a decade later and it seems the 50-year-old actress doesn't hold any sort of grudge to the 39-year-old rapper.
Fox admits the hip-hop star is the love of her life
When Fox recently appeared on The Meredith Vieira Show, which will air on Monday (Feb 16th), she opened up about their brief romance and admitted that she still cares very deeply about the hip-hop star.

Susan Cooper works as an analyst for the CIA; rarely out where the action is and working entirely from the office, advising some of the organisation's top agents during their most deadly assignments. However, following a serious lapse in judgement at the hands of her partner during a bomb disposal mission, the agency are forced to enlist another member of the team to uncover the location of the nuclear weapon. Deciding now is the time to drop her boring persona and become the super keen spy she always wanted to be, Susan volunteers to go undercover - to much derision from her colleagues who barely know her name let alone her position in the CIA. She's allowed to prove herself on the task though, with no appropriate alternative, but can she show that Susan Cooper is just as deadly as her team?

Henson isn't taking any hate - even the high profile kind.
Remember when 50 Cent had some not-so-nice stuff to say about Empire? Neither did anybody else in the world, until Empire star Taraji P. Henson took time out of her (presumably very busy) day to respond.
Did Henson just school 50 over Twitter?
The Oscar nominee responded to the rapper’s diss of her new Fox series on Twitter earlier this week, after 50 Cent claimed on Instagram that Empire’s marketing materials were very similar to the Starz crime drama. Power is his show, by the way, in case you haven’t been keeping up on your 50 Cent news lately.

Eminem released a project as recently as last year, and 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' seemed to win back some of the critics of his recent, more aggressive and emotional style. 'ShadyXV' is a 2 disc release, consisting of tracks from Shady Records' talented roster, as well as some of the label's greatest hits, and we even get the demo version of 'Lose Yourself'; a real treat for Em fans and makes for a very interesting listen when comparing it to one of the most successful and important rap songs of the past decade or so. We get new tracks from Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, D12, Bad Meets Evil and Slim Shady himself; it really does seem that Em has a new found motivation to take Shady Records back to the very top of the rap scene, and 'ShadyXV' serves as evidence that the diverse and talented roster definitely have the potential to do so.
The Shady Records head honcho kicks the album off himself, with the unashamedly rock-infused, self-produced title track. Eminem's frantic and aggressive delivery has divided opinions, but he is undeniably tight on this cut, demonstrating complex rhyme schemes, resulting in a hard-hitting and impressive opener. Em seems to have a reignited enthusiasm for complexity, and we're getting many examples of just how well he can construct lyrics in his newer work. Eminem is also behind the board for the Bad Meets Evil addition to 'ShadyXV', 'Vegas'. Mathers and Royce Da 5'9" both deliver forceful verses, demonstrating their ferocious flows and delivery. The stuttering flow in Em's verse matches the overdriven instrumental, and the consistency of both lengthy verses is impressive. DJ Premier contributes a signature instrumental, with his instantly recognizable timeless boom bap production backing Slaughterhouse on 'Y'all Ready Know'. Joell Ortiz and Joe Budden stand out, but each of the four lyricists definitely step up to the plate. 'Fine Line' is a highlight of the album, with Eminem delivering a passionate and intricate performance, and it's a great touch to shout out The Outsidaz, name checking Young Zee and Pace Won on the third verse. 'Detroit Vs Everybody' has been doing the rounds online for a while now, with an incredible 16 minute long remix featuring some of Detroit's finest spitters also surfacing in the past few days, and the Statik Selektah produced cut closes the album in fantastic fashion.
It's not all good though. Eminem's appearances vary from the aggressive and technical cuts, such as 'Right For Me' and the compilations intro, to the more commercial and inspirational songs he's found huge chart success with recently. 'Guts Over Fear' finds its home here, and 'Die Alone' feels like a re-hash of the same subject matter Em is constantly tackling nowadays. You can't really blame him too much though; he's never going to sound the same as his wild and crazy early releases, and if anything he's showing tremendous growth as an artist, and the confusion evident is not a new concept in the Detroit MC's discography. D12 mark their return with 'Bane', going down the electronic route, and it's not as successful as I hoped when I saw their name on the track-list. It's an unashamedly aggressive track, but ends up being a little forgettable when compared to their older material; '40 Oz', 'Fight Music' and '6 In The Morning' are absolute classics. Hopefully the dark, trap infused sound of 'Bane' isn't the new direction they're going down.

And the winner of the most dedicated method actor award goes to... Jake Gyllenhaal!
Jake Gyllenhaal is a shape shifter. There is no other explanation. We barely recognised him whilst he was filming 'Nightcrawler', with his sunken cheeks and generally gaunt demeanour, but now he's transformed yet again into a sinewy muscle-man for his forthcoming boxing drama 'Southpaw'.
Gyllenhaal looks completely different to usual
He's never exactly been a typecast actor, but it seems Jake Gyllenhaal can literally perform in any role. He can be unnerving ('Donnie Darko'), not to mention dedicated ('Brokeback Mountain') and now it seems he can manipulate his body in a matter of months. He lost thirty pounds to play the creepy, morally corrupt crime journalist Lou Bloom in Dan Gilroy's latest movie 'Nightcrawler', and now he's picked up his calorie intake and bulked up immensely to play a middle weight boxer in Antoine Fuqua's 'Southpaw'. We only wish we had that much self-discipline!

Radio DJ joins in the jibes about the boxer's ability to read
It seems that the brutal teasing of boxing champion floyd mayweather Jr and his reading ability is not about to stop after he was tormented live on air during an Power 105 radio show by host DJ Charlmagne Tha God on Friday 22 August. In this second attack on Mayweather’s literacy in a week, the first from rapper 50 Cent, the American DJ played a recording of Mayweather, 37, struggling to read a promo which was due to be played over the air.
Boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather Jr, has been teased mercilessly over the past week about his reading
The boxer appeared on the radio show last spring and the unedited audio clips were released a few days ago as he tried to read the same drop over and over without total success.

50 Cent just changed the rules.
So 50 Cent was the latest to be tagged in the viral Ice Bucket challenge in aid of ALS disease. Instead of straight up wasting a bucket of ice water in the California drought, however, Fitty chose to get a little more creative. And being him, he also stirred up some old beef in the process. Basically, 50’s video is him challenging floyd mayweather.
50 Cent versus Floyd Mayweather: the beef continues.
If Mayweather can can read one full page of a Harry Potter book “out loud without starting and stopping or f---ing up.” Also, “f--- the bucket of ice” because Curtis Jackson bends to no rule.
The hip hop star challenged the undefeated boxer to read one full page of a 'Harry Potter' book, if successful 50 would donate $750,000 to a charity of Mayweather's choice.
50 Cent is known for being involved in several feud's over the years, and it seems his beef with boxing champion Floyd Mayweather hasn't subsided in the slightest, which is clear when the rap star was about to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The stars were once friends, but now seem to be enemies
However, when 50 uploaded a video via Instagram on Thursday (Aug 21st), he did not mention the ALS Foundation nor did he poor a bucket of ice-cold water of his head, instead the 39 year-old called out Mayweather to an "ELS challenge."
Paul (Jason Patric) used to be a major figure in the Las Vegas crime world - known by his rivals as 'The Prince - before retiring to life as a mechanic in Mississippi as the single father of his growing daughter Angela (Jessica Lowndes). However, his past is coming back to haunt him as one former rival, Omar (Bruce Willis), just can't let his grudge rest. Angela is kidnapped, forcing Paul to face his enemies once again; he travels down to where he believes she has been taken after taking advice from an old friend named Sam (John Cusack). He's still got the weapons and he's definitely still got his formidable fighting skills, but after living in peace for so long, will he be able to save the only person left in his life? Omar's betting he won't, and even he does, he's still got lots to explain to his angry and confused daughter about his dark past.

50 Cent has spoofed the movie trailer of Disney's 'Maleficent', appearing in the villain's cloak and horns as 'MaleFiftyCent'.
50 Cent AKA Curtis Jackson appeared on Jimmy Kimmel live on Thursday.
The rapper has created a spoof trailer sending up Angelina Jolie's latest Disney movie in which he appears in the horns and cloak of Maleficent. The tagline for the fake movie, MaleFiftyCent, is 'get witch or die tryin', evidently in homage to 50 Cent's biopic Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
Macaulay Culkin's band were forced off the stage in Nottingham after facing a disgruntled crowd. But which bands in music history have suffered worse fate at the hands of displeased crowds?
Macaulay Culkin and his pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band, the imaginatively named The Pizza Underground, suffered the chagrin of a disgruntled crown in Nottingham during the city’s annual Dot To Dot festival. Culkin, who was by this point half-way through a European tour, beat a hasty retreat from the stage after being drenched with beer.
Macaulay isn't the first star to feel the audience's ire.
It proved, that in this age of disconnect, where audience members can turn to the comforts of smart phones during lacklustre gigs, music fans are still eager to openly voice their displeasure. Only a few days later, Culkin announced the cancellation of the remaining tour dates. He has not openly cited the event as the primary motivation for such a cancellation, but it seems all too obvious that the hostile reception he received had severely impacted the decision. Macaulay is far from being the first to suffer the wrath of an embittered crowd and few are safe from the ramifications of a poor or ill-judged performance. Here are ten examples of performers receiving a severe dressing down from irate audiences:
The 38 year-old rapper's reunion performance with Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck, quickly escalated into an all-out brawl.
50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, took fans back several years on Sunday (June 1st) as he reunited with G-Unit at the Hot 97 Summer Jam.
The 38 year-old rapper performed an array of hit tracks along with most of the hip-hop group's original members, Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck.
But their reunion will unfortunately not be the most memorable part of the show.
The 38 year-old appeared on 'Good Morning America' to explain the ball "slipped out of my hand," when he threw "one of the worst first pitches of all time" at the New York Mets game last Tuesday (May 27th).
The 38 year-old music mogul botched the ceremonial first pitch at the New York Mets game this past Tuesday (May 27th).
The attempted throw was branded "terrible" and "one of the worst first pitches of all time" by several sports commentators.
There's nothing we love more than finding out when celebrities are best friends, some of them aren't a secret, others will blow you away. We bet you never knew about Bette Midler and 50 Cent's budding best friendship...
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”. Mutual appreciation society, or what? We love it! That's how all best friends should talk about each other in our opinion.

Surving being shot is a pretty big deal as Benzino and these other 5 celebrities know.
Rapper Benzino escaped death when he was shot by his own nephew on Saturday, whilst attending his mother’s funeral. Thankfully the rapper and reality TV star’s injuries were not fatal and he is expected to make a full recovery. As shocking and serious as any shooting is, Benzino is not the first celebrity to fall victim to gun fire, but luckily he’s also not the first to survive either.

What will be the next step in 50 Cent's career?
50 Cent has announced that he's going to become an independent artist and will be leaving his longtime record labels Universal Music Group's Interscope Records, and Eminem's imprint, Shady/Aftermath, according to the AP. The 'Candy Shop' rapper and his G-Unit Records have signed a deal with Caroline, the independent label at Capitol Music Group and one of the many labels that is part of the Universal Music Group.
50 Cent Is Moving To An Independent Label.
The rapper burst on to the hip hop scene in 2003 with his six-time platinum debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin' but his succeeding albums have failed to match the level of success and 50, real name Curtis Jackson, expressed dissatisfaction with his label.
An almost ridiculously strong cast and a witty script by the writer of Crazy Stupid Love make this silly film a lot more entertaining than it should be. As it playfully explores long friendships and the struggles of ageing, it turns into a four-sided bromance. So even if the film feels a little under-powered, it's still thoroughly charming.
At the centre are four lifelong buddies who are determined not to grow old. Paddy (De Niro) is trying to recover from grief over his wife's death, while Archie (Freeman) is tired of being fussed over by his son (Ealy) and Sam (Kline) hates living in a retirement community with his spirited wife (Gleason). So they jump on the chance to travel to Vegas for a stag weekend for their pal Billy (Douglas), who is marrying a woman (Blair) in her 30s. And getting together sparks their youthful sense of mischief as they plan a lavish party. Especially when two of them begin to fall for lounge singer Diana (Steenburgen).
Having five Oscar winners in the lead roles gives considerable oomph to the whole project, as these seasoned veterans bring out engaging details of their characters. Douglas has the safest role as a hapless lover-boy, while De Niro does the emotional heavy lifting and Kline endures the cheapest jokes (because his wife has given him a "free pass" for the weekend). Meanwhile, Freeman is clearly having the most fun: cool and relaxed with a naughty glint in his eye. And Steenburgen provides some badly needed female feistiness.
Continue reading: Last Vegas Review
This lively and engaging documentary may be set out like an informercial, but it teaches us about the drug trade with a pungent sting in its tail. The emphasis is on how America's War on Drugs has only made things worse, criminalising the wrong people and missing the whole point of the drug issue. It's a strong statement, made with passion, intelligence and a refreshing lack of political correctness.
"If the American Dream broke its promise to you, we have an answer!" This is how the film opens, informing us that the American population is the biggest market for marijuana and cocaine on earth. So keeping them supplied is a job that can't help but earn you a fortune as you climb from being a corner supplier to a local dealer to a kingpin to a cartel boss, all while learning lessons from cops and federal agents. And even working with them. Sure, there are dangers, including violence and prison, but the money you can make is worth the risk.
Obviously, this is deeply sarcastic. Telling stories are recounted on-screen by a wide variety of interviewees including activists like Sarandon and Harrelson, former dealers (Jackson), ex-addicts (Mathers, aka Eminem), cops, lawyers, scholars and even a TV series creator (The Wire's Simon). All of them point out the dangers of drugs as well as the fact that people use them because they feel good.

50 Cent will not be going to jail after an incident in June in which he allegedly kicked his ex-girlfriend and damaged her property. The rapper made a deal with L.A. prosecutors yesterday (Monday 28th October) in which the domestic violence charge was dropped in exchange for a no contest plea for the vandalism charges.
50 Cent, also known as Curtis Jackson, allegedly kicked the mother of his child and destroyed parts her property during an argument in June of this year. The woman in question, Daphne Joy, is the mother of Jackson's second child.
50 Cent made a deal yesterday in which the domestic violence charge was dropped.
It appears the rapper kicked Joy during an argument and damaged numerous items of her property including chandeliers, furniture, a television, a lamp and Joy's clothes. He caused, according to reports in TMZ, around $7100 worth of damage.

Chris Brown spend just 45 minutes in jail.
Chris Brown went to prison on Monday (August 5, 2013), turning himself in for his hit-and-run case. The hip-hop star turned up at the Van Nuys jail around 2pm and spent just 45 minutes in the place before leaving.
According to TMZ.com, Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos engineered it all so that Brown avoided the photographers. Interestingly, the courthouse connected to the prison was teeming with photographers just a couple of hours earlier, with rapper 50 Cent making an appearance in his assault case.
Once the cameramen had gotten their snaps of Fiddy and left, Brown and his lawyer sneaked into the jail.

The "Get Rich or Die Trying" star denies the charges.
50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson has sent out the biggest indication yet that he’s fighting these domestic violence and vandalism charges to the death by pleading not guilty in court.
The rapper, who has been told to stay away from Daphne Narvarez – he’s forbidden him from contacting her by phone or email – faces up to five years in jail should be found guilty.
"During an argument, Jackson allegedly began destroying the female's property," the city prosecutor's office said at the time in a written statement.
The rapper is facing jail-time after allegedly attacking the mother of one of his children back in June
50 Cent told a Los Angeles court on Monday (5 August) that he is not guilty of the domestic violence charges brought against him by model Daphne Joy . The rap star pleaded his innocence in front of the judge in LA, however he was ordered not to go anywhere near Joy - at least 100 yards away at all times - and was even told to hand over all his guns to the state, at least until the case is over.
Fiddy has pleaded not guilty to the charges
According to TMZ, the now gunless Fiddy was also stopped outside the LA court by a process server, who handed the rapper/entrepreneur a hefty wad of legal papers, all of which apparently relate to the court case. Taking all these factors into consideration, and despite what 50 has said under oath, it looks as though things are getting pretty real for the 'In Da CLub' rapper, and he could very well be facing a stay in prison. This is LA though, and 50 is really rich and famous, so he probably wont have to worry about jail too much, but still, think of all the money he stands to lose.

50 Cent has pleaded not guilty to charges of domestic violence and vandalism. The charges relate to an incident in which the rapper allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy and damaged her property.
50 Cent has pleaded not guilty to charges of domestic violence. Allegedly the rapper, a.k.a. Curtis Jackson, attacked the mother of his child in June.

According to reports 50 Cent was charged with domestic violence after he allegedly kicked Daphne Joy. A further four charges of vandalism were brought against the 38-year-old Hip-Hop star as he is believed to have damaged Joy's property. Reports suggest the rapper damaged chandeliers, furniture, a television, a lamp and Joy's clothes. The incident occurred on 23rd June at Joy's condo in Toluca Lake.

50 has pleaded not guilty, but it seems the case might drag on for quite some time.
The story of 50 Cent’s domestic violence charges has been going on since June, when the artist was accused by an unnamed woman (allegedly the mother of his child) of entering her home and abusing her. Now, almost two months later, the rapper has pleaded not guilty in the case raised by the woman, who has now been named as model Daphne Joy. Even so, prior to any conviction, the court has instituted a restraining order on the rapper, forbidding him from coming within 100 yards of Joy, as well as requesting that he turn in all his guns. That makes it sound like 50 has an arsenal stashed somewhere in his home, but considering, well, any of his lyrics, would anyone be too surprised, if that was the case?
50 pleaded not guilty.
It seems that the legal trouble for the rapper is far from over. According to TMZ, on his way out of LA court earlier today, 50 was served with a stack of “legal papers” – exactly what those consisted of, was unknown. However, according to a tip the website got from the process server, whatever the papers were, they related to the case. And if we’ve learned anything from Boston Legal and their ilk, it’s that lots of papers usually means lots of trouble.

Jack Halcombe is an Alaskan State Trooper who determinedly sets out to find a serial killer after several bodies of young girls show up apparently murdered. When he discovers a frightened young girl hiding away bound with handcuffs, he realises that she is their key to finding the killer being the only one to have managed to escape from his clutches. However, her information is in doubt given the fact that she is a prostitute and refused a polygraph. When he does find the suspect, it is Robert Hansen; an experience hunter and a bakery worker whose respected status leads many investigators to cross him off their list. Halcombe is unwavering in his suspicions, however, and sets out to gather solid evidence that Hansen is their man.
Continue: The Frozen Ground Trailer
Nicolas Cage's new Alaskan crime thriller 'The Frozen Ground' is released today (19th July) in the UK and 23rd August in the USA. What do the first reviewers reckon?
Upcoming crime thriller The Frozen Ground is based on true events that culminated in a horrific serial killer being jailed to 461 years in prison in 1984 after the murder of 17 women. An adaptation of a chilling real-life story, the film starts with prostitute Cindy (Vanessa Hudgens) who narrowly escapes the clutches of serial killer and sexual predator Robert Hansen (John Cusack) but her story is disbelieved by the authorities. It is only when State Trooper Jack Halcombe (Nicolas Cage) becomes involved in the investigation that Cindy's account is investigated and Hansen is tracked down.
Nicolas Cage To Star As State Trooper Jack Halcombe Who Tries To Solve The Crimes.
The Telegraph's Tim Robey disparages the film as unentertaining whilst badly and confusingly constructed yet does admit that former Disney teen princess Hudgens makes a "solid contribution" to the narrative, saying "she's tough and committed in ways that often come to the rescue." Cusack's killer is painted as a 2D villain, serving up "a listless banality-of-evil cipher instead of a character." The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw rates the film a little higher however, choosing to praise all three lead actor's performances as "solid" and Digital Spy attests - Cage's performance is "subtly" intense whilst the script is described as "smartly written." However, DS does admit that The Frozen Ground "misses the mark" with unconvincing roles from Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Radha Mitchell, playing Cindy's pimp and Halcombe's wife respectively.
