Featuring 14 movie characters up close, undressed in the midst of seemingly intimate moments, erotic posters for Danish director Lars von Trier's new movie, "Nymphomaniac" just hit the web today (October 11).
Scheduled for a world premiere in Denmark on Christmas Day, the controversial NC-17 film follows the erotic life of a woman, Joe (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg) from birth to the age of 50, and stars Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater and Jamie Bell.
Sports movies are usually not supposed be too realistic. We watch them for their sheer entertainment value - the motivational speeches, the buzzer beating shots, the underdog stories that defy all odds. And while some movies, such as Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler, about a down and out wrestler (Mickey Rourke) in search of one last comeback, handle sports with far greater nuance, they are definitely the exception to the rule. (Bear with me on calling pro wrestling a sport.) Sure, it’s great to garner the sort of critical acclaim and Oscar buzz that The Wrestler has received, but that shouldn’t overshadow all the wonderfully ridiculous moments sports movies have given audiences over the years.
The sixth installment in the life of Rocky Balboa (Sylvster Stallone), an unlikely boxing champion from Philadelphia, chronicles his return to the ring for one last fight. His journey is set in motion after a video game simulation shows that in his prime he could have defeated the current heavyweight champion, Mason “The Line” Dixon.
Like all Rocky films, this one ends with a climactic scene in the ring between Rocky and his fiercest competitor. Although the audience is supposed to believe that his determination and heart enable him to go toe-to-toe with “The Line,” it’s clear that the billion-year-old Rocky Balboa really shouldn’t stand a chance. Rocky may have the eye of the tiger, but now he needs to be in bed by sundown.
Prior to the end of the writers’ strike, most of the regular pre-Oscar parties were cancelled. But never fear! Madonna, her manager Guy Oseary, and Demi Moore came up with a last-minute solution, and stars like Owen Wilson, Eva Mendes, and Christian Slater showed up in droves.
Fresh out of the Cirque Lodge Rehab Center in Orem, Utah, Eva Mendes showed her face at the CAA shindig, wearing a black and white belted dress complete with black knee-high leather boots and a black jacket.
