James Bond fans, meet your two new Bond girls. Today in London, the cast and crew of “Skyfall,” the name of the 23rd James Bond film, gathered for a press conference and revealed for the first time which women would be distracting the notorious ladies man 007. According to TooFab:
French actress Berenice Marlohe, who stunned in a sexy red dress, will play the glamorous Severine … though, at the moment, not much more is known about her character. Naomie Harris will also star in the film as a field agent named Eve — and Harris revealed she’s been doing yoga, stunt driving and firing machine guns to prepare for the role. We like her already.

Emma Stone is currently in negotiations to appear in the rom-com “He’s F**kin’ Perfect.” The film follows a ”social media savvy girl who is pessimistic about love and vets her friends’ dates to find flaws. When that process leads her to uncover the perfect guy, she decides to use her internet research skills to turn herself into his perfect match.” We’re not sure how long the present title will survive, but it does sound like a f**kin’ perfect role for Emma Stone. “He’s Fuckin’ Perfect” is a debut screenplay from Lauryn Kahn, who has spent the last four years working as assistant to director Adam McKay (“Anchorman,” “Step Brothers”). (McKay will act as as producer alongside Will Ferrell via their production company Gary Sanchez Productions.) Keep reading »
Reasons why the reboot of “21 Jump Street” might suck: The Holly Robinson or Dustin Nguyen characters seem to be almost nonexistent. Also, Channing Tatum is a poor excuse for Johnny Depp. But who are we kidding? Ice Cube as Captain Dickson? Okay, okay. We’ll be seeing it in theaters (or at least on Netflix streaming).
“Breaking Dawn: Part 1″? Yawn. My inner 13-year-old is seriously hyped for the film version of “The Hunger Games,” starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth. Especially after seeing the full cast photographed in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. Click through for more pics from the cast’s shoot. Let the games begin!
No one in my book club is having children after last month’s selection: We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver. It’s a novel about Eva, a successful travel guide writer who is ambivalent about getting pregnant and ends up giving birth to pure evil. No, it’s not like “Rosemary’s Baby” with a literally evil child: her son Kevin is psychopathic and Eva realizes it, but her husband is completely oblivious. So Kevin grows up, tormenting and terrorizing the people around him, until one day as a teenager he commits a heinous crime that will leave your blood cold. It’s an amazing book that I highly recommend reading. So I can’t wait for the film version in theaters early next year, starring Tilda Swinton as the mom, John C. Reilly as the dad, and Ezra Miller as Kevin. The trailer is absolutely chilling, so I can only imagine how disturbing the actual movie will be. [YouTube]
