Alison Carroll
Tomb Raider model Alison Carroll showed quite a bit of leg at the premiere of "The Kid" in London on Wednesday. In fact, the headline shouldn't read 'hot legs,' it should read hottest legs! The thigh-high slit on her blue dress was so steep, it had to be held together with safety pins!

Despite Alison being the real-life model that represents the video game heroine, it seems like each year there's a new rumor of who will take over the role from Angelina Jolie, who starred as the sexy Brit in the 2001 feature and it's sequel in 2003, "Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life."

In 2009 it was Megan ...

2010 Summer Movies Are Bad, But Past Years Have Been Worse (Video)

7/28/2010 11:15am EDT
As usual, the lineup for summer movies this year was star-studded and full of sequels. However, most of them have been critically panned and - even worse - they are not racking up ticket sales. Still, there have been far worse summer selections.

In an interesting pattern, it seems every 9 years there is a "stinker" summer movie slate. In 2001, our summer selections looked like this: A Knight's Tale, Pearl Harbor, Scary Movie 2, Planet of the Apes, The Mummy Returns, Swordfish, Dr. Dolittle 2, Rush Hour 2, Tomb Raider, Jurassic Park III, and Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Yikes!

Kim Kardashian's Black Mermaid Gown & Tight Bun - Hot Or Not?

Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian brought some glamour to the 38th Annual FiFi Awards in New York City on Thursday. We love the figure hugging dress, but we think her hairstyle may be a bit severe. What do you think?

The reality TV star is reportedly in talks to replace Angelina Jolie in the "Tomb Raider" franchise. A source tells the Global Grind website, "Kim has wanted to play a far more comic-strip version of Lara, which would be shot in 3D and aimed at a teen audience."

But Angelina can't be too upset. She's reportedly up for the titular role in a "Cleopatra" remake.

Is Angelina Jolie The Right Pick For 'Cleopatra?'

6/12/2010 8:31am EDT
Angelina Jolie
After reading an article here on Starpulse about Angelina Jolie being booted from the new "Tomb Raider" film for Kim Kardashian (it still makes me upset) it was interesting to read that she is to play “Cleopatra.”

It is going to be a remake of the original “Cleopatra” starring Elizabeth Taylor, but the producer has purchased the rights to the biography called "Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra: A Life," so it’s fair to say the plot may not be similar. The author, Stacy Schiff, seems to be keen on the idea of Jolie playing the leading role (Jolie does star in some blockbusters so what writer wou...

Is 40 Box Office Poison for Women in Hollywood?

Meg Ryan in The Women
Early last month Sony received word that Tom Cruise was dropping out of "Edwin A. Salt" due to similarities to Cruise's "Mission Impossible" franchise. Less than a week later, "Salt" had a new star, Angelina Jolie, and a greenlight. The script re-write began immediately in order to change the lead role to suit a female. The fastest turn around in Hollywood history had been pulled off thanks to a woman.

Power in Hollywood is defined by the ability to get a green light and bring in big bucks. And at the moment Angelina Jolie is powerful. She's also 33. Would things have been different i...

Writer's Opinion: Angelina Jolie Isn't That Hot

I think Angelina Jolie was always thought of as pretty, a nice looking girl. She was a decent foil for Denzel Washington in The Bone Collector, people liked her alongside Winona Ryder in Girl, Interrupted, she got a little edgy with Gone in 60 Seconds. But when exactly did the world decide that Angelina Jolie is the end-all, be-all of hotness? Was there a vote that I missed? Is there an email I didn't get?

No, I know exactly what happened. Tomb Raider happened. The smash hit video game that introduced geeks worldwide to Lara Croft became the movie that turned Angelina Jolie from above...

Video Games Do Not Make Good Movies

There are some things in Hollywood that just do not work: Lindsay Lohan and sobriety, most marriages, Tim Allen tackling roles not involving Christmas, and successfully adapting a video game into a movie. Why is this so hard?

The powers that be can take a 700-page book and trim it down to a two-hour story. Either they are picking really bad video games to adapt or the people involved just suck. There has yet to be a quality adaptation. So why do studios keep insisting on producing them? They even screwed up Doom, a story that involves Marines fighting aliens. How is that even possible...

Daddy Warbucks Is The Richest Fictional Character

Daddy Warbucks from Annie has topped the Forbes "Fictional 15," an annual listing of the wealthiest fictional characters. Santa Clause was eliminated from the list this year because Forbes was inundated with letters from children insisting the jolly man is "real."

According to Forbes, Warbucks, an ex-U.S. Army general turned industrialist, is worth $36.2 billion, thanks to the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and because of a contract to provide oil-well maintenance in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
