Here’s proof that you’re never, ever too old to play dress-up: a group of senior citizens at a nursing home in Germany recently recreated 12 iconic movie scenes for a photo calendar. The residents, who ranged in age from 75 to 98 got all dolled up as James Bond, Holly Golightly, and, of course, Jack and Rose. The calendar was produced as a gift for the residents and their families, and is not for sale. Too bad, because I would totally buy one! After the jump, check out a few more snaps of senior citizens acting out classic scenes from “Breakfast At Tiffany’s,” “Rocky,” and “The Seven Year Itch”…

If you were a billionaire, how would you spend your vast fortune? Installing clean water systems in developing communities? Shopping sprees at Prada? Building an exact replica of a ship that sunk and killed 1500 people? If you chose the latter option, you’re on the same page as Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, who has contracted a Chinese shipbuilding company to make his dream come true, and just released artist renderings (shown above) and details about his plans for “Titanic II.” We’ve got the full scoop after the jump… Keep reading »

I saw ”Titanic” 10 times in 1997 when it came out in the theaters. Granted, I was 19 and living in Florence, Italy and I had a lot of time on my hands (clearly, since I spent more than 31 hours staring at it over a 12-week period), but it was a good movie.
Sure, now it seems cheesy and silly in parts — “I’m the king of the world!” — but I was still first in line on the opening day of “Titanic 3D.” It did not disappoint. Even though I am older and wiser now, I have been in love (I hadn’t then), and I generally think dying for someone you have known three days is kind of dumb (why couldn’t they BOTH get on that damn door?), it’s still a romantic weep-fest. Sigh.
Here are five reasons to see “Titanic 3D.” Read more…
James Cameron’s films always make a stylistic impact, from “Titanic”‘s Heart of the Ocean to the blue-skinned, pseudo-feline Na’vi people in “Avatar,” so it’s only natural that someone would eventually arrange to depict his instantly recognizable scenes in a high fashion way. In celebration of “Titanic”‘s 3D re-release, Harper’s Bazaar welcomes us to the world of James Cameron, in which model Hailey Clauson (yes, that Hailey Clauson) poses alongside the director’s most iconic images. I can’t help but feel that it’s a little strange to have Clauson, swathed in a pale pink fur and silk gown, leaning against a model of the Titanic (the tragedy of which, you know, actually happened), but the photo is beautifully striking nonetheless. My favorite, though? The model in a sequined ombre Blumarine dress, her skin fading into CGI as Neytiri looks on. [Harper's Bazaar]
