Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted in Malibu on Sunday doing some shopping with boyfriend Jason Statham.

The Transformers: Dark Of The Moon star recently revealed that she had to take running lessons prior to filming the new Transformers movie - because director Michael Bay didn't like the way she paced herself.

The model made her acting debut in the blockbuster and she spent two weeks training before the film started.

She says, "I did know how to run but I got into the gym and my trainer said, 'Yeah, we're gonna have to fix that because your run looks somewhat like Phoebe from Friend...

She says, "I was in a movie about cars with no idea how to drive... I just learned to drive because I moved here (Los Angeles)."

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Sanctum' & 'The Roommate'

January 31st, 2011 9:23am EST
Sanctum
I caught screenings of two movies that opened last week: “The Rite” with Anthony Hopkins and “The Mechanic” with Jason Statham. My first impression was that I would like “The Rite” better than “The Mechanic” however the reverse was actually the case. If you haven’t already read my review of “The Rite” check my gripes about it.

While “The Mechanic” is not a thinking man’s movie, it’s a mindless action flick that knows how to cater to its target audience. There are some entertaining fight sequences and a few great one-liners which is all you can really ask for from this type of film. My ...

Jason Statham was grateful for the chance to reteam with Jet Li in The Expendables - so the action duo could redeem themselves for their past movie flops.

The British movie hunk previously starred alongside Li in the movies The One and War, which were widely panned by critics.

He tells Britain's OK! magazine, "All the movies I've done with Jet, apart from this one, have been n...

Jean-claude Van Damme
Jean-Claude Van Damme refused to appear in Sylvester Stallone's all-star action film The Expendables, because he would have to lose a fight to Jet Li.

Stallone corralled a hit-list of Hollywood hard men to appear in the film, but Universal Soldier star Van Damme turned him down, because the Belgian martial arts expert failed to get the movie's satirical undertones.

Stallone tells Britain's Sunday Times, "I wanted to set Jean-Claude against Jet Li, but he didn't want to lose to Jet. He didn't think that was cool. But that's why it would be cool; to have Jean-Claude beaten by the other ma...

Will There Be Any Surprise Movie Gems in August?

August 10th, 2010 11:14am EDT

This past weekend, “The Other Guys,” starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, unseated “Inception” for the top spot at the box office. Notorious for mediocre movies, August is typically the worst month of the year for any moviegoer who craves an inspired experience at the theater.

This August, however, may be different as “The Other Guys” has already gotten solid reviews from critics and a $35 million opening weekend. The re-teaming of Ferrell and writer/director Adam McKay has already spiced up the box office for the early part of August and several other titles makes one wonder if the re...

Bai Ling Will Mow You Down

Bai Ling showed up at Tom Clancy's "Splinter Cell: Conviction" video game launch in Hollywood yesterday wearing practically nothing and holding a machine gun.

In other words, it was status quo for the attention-seeking actress.

Maybe she learned how to shoot while serving in the People's Liberation Army, which she enlisted in when she was just 14. The authoritarian atmosphere of the Army didn't suit Ling, who was accused of insubordination for use of tobacco and alcohol. She turned to acting instead.

Movie Remakes & Recastings We Hope To Never See

June 8th, 2009 9:40am EDT
Mary Poppins
In the wake of the current brain-draining drive to remake just about everything Hollywood has ever had to offer, there are some films that are so sacred they should never be touched. This is a blatant retort to the deluge of watered down franchises, remakes, medium changes, etc. It ranges in levels of snark from low to apocalyptic strength.

My frustration with this extremely long trend came to a fever pitch after watching the Obsessed trailer. Anyone even peripherally familiar with Fatal Attraction could easily catch the obvious, racially spurred recasting of a classic film.

Hyper-Masculine Action Films Are Violent, Ridiculous & So Much Fun

April 15th, 2009 12:52pm EDT
Fast & Furious
According to Hollywood and its demographic cinema box office soothsayers, the only people who have the ability to purchase tickets to and actively watch an action film are men and teenage boys. They believe that women, for the most part, cannot watch these films - unless their boyfriends, husbands, male friends, etc. have explicitly gave them entrance to the theater or made the magical DVD player start the film.

Either way, it is assumed that men are the ones with the keys to the magic that is "boom and vroom." Hollywood types with these lofty gendered assumptions are most definite...
