Diane Kruger may be forced to get inked after losing a bet in regards to her new movie's success at the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival. She bet against 'Into the Fade' making it to competition, which it did - and then some. Well, a wager is a wager!
Diane Kruger at Cannes Film Festival
'The Bridge' star made a bet with award-winning director Fatih Akin ('Head-On', 'The Edge of Heaven') that their revenge thriller 'In the Fade' wouldn't reach the competition list for Cannes this year. She agreed to get a tattoo of an achor somewhere on her body if she wrong, and not only was it nominated for the Palme d'Or prize but Diane Kruger also took home the Best Actress award.

Sometimes paranoia and reality are the same.
When you're so conditioned to the warzone, re-entering the 'real' world can be challenging, and often just as terrifying. Director Alice Winocour went to great depths to explore this idea of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in former soldiers with her gripping new thriller 'Disorder'.
Matthias Schoenaerts stars in 'Disorder'
It's no secret that men and women often return from military combat changed beyond recognition. The horrors of war leave scars that never fade, and often these troops are forced to live the rest of their lives in fear; looking over their shoulders every single day overwhelmingly paranoid, even in the comfort of their mundane home lives, they struggle to shake those ingrained thoughts of violence and brutality they once saw. In 'Disorder', a new thriller directed by Alice Winocour ('Augustine'), we follow the after-effects in one man who returns from Afghanistan and takes on a security job.

The American remake of the popular Scandinavian drama hits TVs tonight, July 10.
What links the sweltering border of American and Mexico, with the bleak line between Denmark and Sweden? Well, it’s The Bridge – and not just Bridge of the Americas or Øresund Bridge which link up the respective countries, but the drama that incorporates them both.
Diane Kruger at the premiere of The Bridge
FX have taken the Scandinavian version of The Bridge – the original, which appeared on the BBC back in 2011 – and reworked it for an American audience. It follows Demián Bichir and German actress Diane Kruger as the Mexican/American police team charged with tracking and stopping a serial killer with an apparent political motive. The original saw a body over the border of Sweden and Denmark, and featured a similar method by the show’s antagonist – placing half the body in each country so if falls under both of their jurisdictions.

Since their last adventure, things have changed rather significantly for Team Ben Gates (a null set Nicolas Cage). Our hero is continuing his treasure-hunting ways, but he's broken up with gal pal Abigail Chase (Diane Kruger). Papa Gates (a lost Jon Voight) has been helping sonny boy over his rough relationship patch, while tech wiz sidekick Riley Poole (a far too-wisecracking Justin Bartha) has published a book and is deep in debt to the IRS. When a mysterious figure named Mitch Wilkinson (Ed Harris) shows up, carrying a page out of John Wilkes Booth's diary implicating Gates' forefather in the assassination of Lincoln, the ancestors vow to clear his name. Turns out the long dead relative could have been trying to hide the location of the lost City of Gold -- Cibola -- from conspiring Confederate rebels. It's up to Gates to find the truth, and the vast wealth at the end of said quest.

Troy leaves the talking to its triumvirate of Hollywood royalty - Brian Cox, Brendan Gleeson, and Peter O'Toole. The dying is left up to the chiseled and marketable studs - Eric Bana, Orlando Bloom, and Brad Pitt. Whenever a member of the veteran trio interacts with a member of the other on screen, it creates a mismatch of talent not even a Trojan Horse could overcome.

Explaining the film - or even saying what genre it's in - is a bit tricky. Josh Hartnett plays a young ad executive named Matthew, who's obviously done well in parlaying a job as a camera repairman into a creative position in New York. Briefly back in his old home town of Chicago before jetting off to China, Matthew abruptly runs into old pal Luke (Matthew Lillard) and catches what he's sure is a glimpse of old girlfriend Lisa (Jessica Lange-lookalike Diane Kruger, last seen as Helen of Troy). Luke - on the cusp of marrying his boss's daughter (Jessica Paré) - is thrown into such a panic he blows off his trip overseas. What unfolds over the next two hours is the story of Luke and Lisa - how they met, how they abruptly split up, and the strange mysteries that are hidden in the past.
