Vanity Fair Unveils 18th Annual Hollywood Issue Cover

In: Donovan, Movies

One of my favorite yearly special issues is out. Sooooooo excited. Vanity Fair gathered “11 Thoroughly Modern Actresses” for their annual Hollywood Issue. Last year, Annie Leibovitz was the creative force behind the stunning cover featuring the likes of Anne Hathaway, James Franco, Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal. For the first time ever, famed-fashion photographer Mario Testino took the helm for an equally gorgeous photograph.

This time around, Vanity Fair opted to keep it ladies only and chose eleven fresh young stars to keep an eye on in 2012. Dressed in pastel satin dresses, the starlets evoke a 20s boudoir feel with its Art Deco set. A few years ago, the publication was criticized for it’s annual Hollywood issue for being “too white”. Even though, two actresses of color were included, I’m certain some critics will cite there isn’t enough diversity. You can never please everyone.

Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Mia Wasikowska (Alice In Wonderland) and Jessica Chastain (The Help) were the lucky actresses to land the first panel of the issue. While it’s an honor to be included in the Hollywood issue, I’m sure all the other actresses secretly hoped they would be above the fold and not shuttled back to the third panel. Continue reading to find out who ended up there for the 2012 cover. Plus check out all of Vanity Fair’s previous Hollywood Issue covers below.

Next year, Henry Cavill will grace the silver screen as the Man of Steel. However, we haven’t really seen Henry tackle the action-adventure genre too much as of yet. Our first glimpse was when Cavill took on the role of Theseus in Immortals. But, can Henry live up to some of his action predecessors including the films co-star, Bruce Willis? When you check out the trailer for his upcoming movie The Cold Light of Day, you’ll see that Cavill is capable of kicking butt in any circumstance.

Also co-starring Sigourney Weaver, The Cold Light of Day follows Will Shaw, a young man vacationing with his family in Madrid. When he returns one day to find that his family is missing, he begins to unravel a conspiracy and not only discovers that his father (Willis) is a CIA agent, but that he must take his father’s place in order to save his kin. Directed by Mabrouk El Mechri, the film is set to hit theaters on April 6. Check out the trailer below.

Another awards show, another parade of designer gowns adorning Hollywood actresses. Sandwiched in between the Golden Globes and Academy Awards, the SAG Awards is a tricky event to dress for. Though it’s a great predictor for future Oscar statue winners, it’s not as widely-seen as the other two aforementioned shows, so nominated actresses usually hold back. You want to wow on the red carpet, but yet save the big guns for the the big night at the Kodak Theater.

Since it’s more a low-key event in terms of fashion with regards to the other two, I decided to combine my five best and worst picks in one post. Since I have less slots available, some usual favorites like Sofia Vergara didn’t make the cut. Sure, she looked gorgeous and dazzled in a familiar-looking gown, but I decided to share the wealth to other well-dressed women. Check out my picks below and see if you agree.

First Look: “Step Up 4″ Trailer

In: Movies, Tyrell, Videos

Dance movies are back this summer with the release of Step Up 4 which had its first trailer officially released this morning. Directed by music video director and former Ashley Tisdale boyfriend Scott Speer, the film looks like it sat comfortably in Speer’s realm of knowledge as the trailer shows off multiple dance action sequences. John Chu also stepped in as producer and you can see his capable dance hands sprinkled throughout the trailer as well bringing his signature, blockbuster effects and concepts to the world of dance.

Starring Kathryn McCormick of So You Think You Can Dance fame along with hottie Ryan Guzman, the story follows Emily (McCormick), the daughter of a wealthy businessman, who arrives in Miami with aspirations of becoming a professional dancer, but soon falls in love with Sean (Guzman), a young man who leads a dance crew in elaborate, cutting-edge flash mobs.

Placing all the moves on the dancers were choreographers Christopher Scott who is known for his genre-bending style for The LXD along with one of So You Think You Can Dance’s most popular contestants-turned-choreographers, Travis Wall. While the story itself may not be more than been-there-done-that, it looks like the money spent on effects, concepts and choreography will surely pay off and excite fans of dance anywhere. Grab a look at the new trailer below.

Last week, Donovan informed you that Matthew Broderick would be paying homage to his Ferris Bueller character in a new Honda CR-V commercial for the Super Bowl. Now the full version of the ad has just been released and we’ve got your first look.

To celebrate the launch of the all-new 2012 CR-V, Honda brought Ferris Bueller’s Day Off back in a big game commercial. Instead of playing Ferris Bueller, the actor has been cast as himself, skipping out on a day of acting work and living it up in his all-new CR-V. It’s a blast from the past in the ad, drawing many parallels to the original ’80s movie classic.

Check out the adventures Broderick gets up to on his day off in the video below.

2012 Oscar Watch: The DGA & SAG Winners Announced

In: Donovan, Movies

If you plan on entering your office’s Oscar Pool this year, be sure to read this post. Out of all the Oscar precursor awards, the Director Guild of America (DGA) Awards and the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards are the ones to pay close attention to. The two are the best predictors when it comes to eventual Oscar winners. If you want to improve your odds of winning your Oscar pool, I’d follow these two guilds’ footsteps.

The DGAs are a near perfect barometer for predicting the Best Director Academy Award winner. Only six times since the award’s existence in 1948, have the DGAs incorrectly matched the Oscar honoree. The last time came in 2002 when Steven Soderbergh won for “Traffic” while Roman Polanski walked away with the Oscar for his work on “The Pianist“. On Saturday night’s ceremony, the winner for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for 2011 was Michel Hazanavicius for “The Artist“.

He beat out Martin Scorsese (Hugo), Alexander Payne (The Descendants), Woody Allen (Midnight In Paris) and David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). With exception to Fincher, Hazanavicius will face off against the same crew of directors at the Oscars with Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life) taking over Fincher’s slot. Hazanavicius is definitely the one to beat now.

Poor Demi Moore. She’s certainly experiencing a string of bad luck as of late. First she finds out about Ashton’s cheating ways and files for divorce, then she experienced an alleged drug-induced collapse this week, and now this. The 49-year-old actress has reportedly been replaced on the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, “Lovelace” due to the actress pulling out, citing exhaustion as the reason.

Moore was supposed to portray American feminist and journalist, Gloria Steinem in the flick starring Amanda Seyfried in the title role. Steinem infamously wrote about Linda’s abusive relationship with husband Chuck Traynor in Ms. Magazine, a publication she founded. The 77-year-old icon also wrote “Out of Bondage“, an introduction for Linda’s 1986 memoir. Curious to know who’s stepping into Gloria’s shoes instead of Moore? Keep reading to find out.
