A new 30-second Korean TV spot for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" surfaced on Monday, and it features one previously unseen image from the highly anticipated film that has fans on the internet buzzing.

The group looks out over legions of Stormtroopers, Tie...

Mockingjay Part 2
Ready for your very first glimpse at "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 2?" Because the first trailer for this November's final "Hunger Games" film has just made its way online. And it's very, very epic.

"Nothing good is safe while Snow's alive," broods Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) in the trailer's opening moments. "I can't make another speech about it. Snow has to pay for what he's done."

That's a pretty solid foundation for what we'll be seeing in "Mockingjay- Part 2," based off the latter half of Suzanne Collins' final "Hunger Games" novel, titled "Mockingjay." The...

9/1/2014 2:52pm EDT
Several of the stars from the highly anticipated "Star Wars" sequel, "Star Wars: Episode VII," were spotted in Venice, Italy, this weekend for the Venice Film Festival, and they're all keeping hush-hush about the film's top secret details.

Adam Driver, who is supporting his latest film "Hungry Hearts" at the fest, kept his comments on the film to a bare minimum.

"I will say this -- it's surreal," the actor said about stepping onto the set on the first day of shooting.

Driver also said he doesn't feel like he deserves to be there working on the film in a new interview with GQ magazine.

We recently profiled the tallest actors in show business, so naturally we wanted to also honor the women who stand out - for both their height and acting ability.

Gwendoline Christie, 6'3". Christie plays the towering Brienne in Game of Thrones and told Stylist, "As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity and what it is to be a woman."

Fashion Fails: Ruth Wilson, Jessie J, Maggie Gyllenhaal, More

Ruth Wilson
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Ruth Wilson's outfit looks similar, doesn't it? That's because Maggie Gyllenhaal wore it last June with a matching skirt - and it was a fail then, too! The bulging waist section looks worse with the tight black dress Wilson has paired it with.

Speaking of Maggie Gyllenhaal, she wore this Goth-y dress adorned with an assortment of jewels that put it over-the-top. Are those little pouches near her shoulders?

The Best & Worst Dressed At The BAFTAs
The Royal Opera House in London hosted the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards (BAFTAs) on Sunday, and lots of celebrities brought their best (and worst) to the red carpet.

Australian-born Cate Blanchett, who won a Best Actress trophy for "Blue Jasmine," looked elegant in a black Alexander McQueen gown with a silver floral print. Her Chopard necklace featured three intertwining birds.

Slideshow: The Beautiful Women Of 'Game Of Thrones'

The third season of Game of Thrones is less than a week away (we've seen the first four episodes already and they are awesome!) and what better way to celebrate than with a slideshow of the beautiful women of Westeros (and Essos)?

The show's two most powerful women, Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister, played by Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey, respectively, are both blondes, but in reality sport dark 'dos. They may be hot on TV, but we think they're even sexier off screen. In fact, they all clean up well.

Our favorites? Oona Chaplin, who plays Robb Stark's (Richard Madden) wife Talisa ...

'Game Of Thrones' Star Gwendoline Christie Felt 'Genderless' Because Of Her Size

Gwendoline Christie
The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn't relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: "It's really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman."

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous se...

Emilia Clarke wowed in an electric blue strapless dress, making quite a departure from her blonde haired character Daenerys Targaryen. The actress recently told GQ magazine how she often goes unrecognized in public.

"It takes a die-hard fan to actually spot me," she explained. "These HBO events, where I'll be talking to someone for a fair amount of time, and then suddenly they're like, Oh sh*t! That's what you do! Th...
