While their working relationship has yet to translate into a big screen outing, Sofia Coppola and Natalie Portman have made quite the formidable pair for Dior. They teamed up a couple of years ago for a campaign for Miss Dior Cherie (Coppola has been doing work for the fashion house for years) and they've paired up once again to sell some more scented water.

Once the news came in last week that Peter Dinklage would be joining the cast of “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” it did not take long for the rumors to begin swirling about. Would he be playing Puck or Toad? Then we wondered if he could be playing a fully CGI character. Turns out it’ll be none of the above, as director Bryan Singer recently confirmed to IGN.

Taylor Kitsch
Poor Taylor Kitsch. Though he turned heads in the critically acclaimed small screen adaptation of “Friday Night Lights,” his forays into the big screen haven’t been met with similar praise. Last year was Kitsch’s big test as leading man, with starring roles in “John Carter,” “Battleship” and “Savages,” and it didn't turn out so well. Box office receipts and critical pans be damned however, because the former football star with the bedroom eyes has lined up another leading role.

Say what you will about Nicholas Sparks, but his movies always seem to perform well in the box office. While none of them have been huge smash hits ("The Notebook" aside), they all make a pretty hefty profit on modest budgets. And this year’s ”Safe Haven” continued the trend, opening up quiet well even as it faced off against "A Good Day To Die Hard." So it should come as no surprise to anyone that a bidding war among studios recently erupted in an attempt to purchase Sparks’s latest, "The Longest Ride."

Ethan Hawke Says Many "Forgettable, Stupid Movies" & "Mediocre Performers" Have Won Oscars

...well, we can't really argue, can we? While Oscar history is littered with actors and movies who more than deserved the statues and the glory, it's also filled with head scratching decisions and winners that haven't stood the test of time. But knowing that, and saying that are two different things, particularly when you're in the industry, and Ethan Hawke may be having his own Joaquin Phoenix moment. He even used the same carrot metaphor...

While some thought that Judd Apatow’s 2009 dramedy “Funny People” could mark a turning point of sorts for Adam Sandler, the comedy star has dedicated the years since to further become the type of actor he lampooned in the viral ads for the Apatow film. And now, Deadline is reporting that he’s thinking about teaming up again with the actress he’s already romanced in two previous films, to diminishing returns.

Around this time last year, "Les Misérables" was still a speck in Oscar prognosticators' eyes, but perhaps Anne Hathaway already sensed her pipes would be taking her places. With the actress seen as a virtual lock to take home a statue this weekend, it looks like she wants to keep on singing. Last May, she started eyeing the movie "Song One," a picture she was slated to produce but wasn't yet locked to star in, but it looks like the wheels are in motion and some very interesting talent will helping to put this one together.

Let's face it, as entertaining as the "Iron Man" movies have been thus far (okay, the second one not so much), the villains haven't been all that great. The first was a game but not particularly memorable Jeff Bridges as the duplicitous Obadiah Stane, the father of Tony Stark's old partner. Shrug. Then in the sequel there was the double dose of the wildly ridiculous Ivan Vanko, played by Mickey Rourke, and the pitch perfect but underused sleazebag Justin Hammer, in a part taken by Sam Rockwell. But the third in the franchise could be the charm.

Well, that was fast. Aside from "Jonah Hex," and "Passion Play," where intentions were good, Megan Fox hasn't been in a truly terrible movie since, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (let's not speak of "Jennifer's Body" shall we?) The actress fell out with director Michael Bay in 2008 in the aftermath of the critical hazing the film received and seemed to be taking a promising detour from blockbuster shlock with interesting roles in smaller comedies like "Friends With Kids," and Judd Apatow's "ThIs Is 40." But is that excursion over already?

When you think of comedy, you don't immediately think of the name James Marsden. But the actor, perhaps best known for playing Cyclops in the "X-Men" movies, does have a background of laughter that has included most recently "Bachelorette," a stint on "30 Rock" and a role in "Death At A Funeral" among others. And eagle-eyed fans of "Zoolander" also know that he appeared ever so fleetingly as John Wilkes Booth. But now he's gearing up for what will easily be his biggest comedy role yet, and he'll face off against one of the funniest people out there.
