"Miss Anders... I didn’t recognize you with your clothes on."
It's been 50 years this month since James Bond first made the leap from the printed page to the silver screen with the release of Dr. No in theaters. Six different actors — Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig — have played Ian Fleming's timeless character over the decades and, while his spy gadgets and cars may change, you can always count on Bond to surround himself with beautiful, resourceful, and downright deadly women.
Considering February is Bond Month on Reelz, we thought this would be a great time to look back at the sexy women who have helped to make James Bond the cultural icon of masculinity he has become. Is Ursula Andress's Honey Ryder still the top Bond Girl, the pinnacle of spy intrigue sex appeal, or is it time to christen a new queen?no such thing as too many bond girls

The first still images from the Jonathan Liebesman-directed sequel to Clash of the Titans have turned up online and — surprise, surprise — they primarily feature Sam Worthington as Perseus, the demigod son of Zeus (Liam Neeson) and hero of the first movie. However, while Worthington is featured in two of the three images, he looks far less heroic than when we last saw him. In fact, it's actually a ripped-up Rosamund Pike as the warrior Queen Andromeda who looks like the real badass of this movie.
Set a decade after Perseus' triumphant defeat of the mighty Kraken in the first movie, Wrath of the Titans finds Perseus living a much simpler life as a fisherman and single parent to his 10-year-old son, Helius. Even though Perseus has put down his sword in favor of a fishing pole, the travails of the ever-feuding gods and Titans force him back into action when Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Ares (Edgar Ramirez) conspire to kidnap Zeus and turn him over to the ruler of the Titans, Kronos. No match for Kronos, Perseus enlists the aid of Queen Andromeda, the demigod Argenor (Toby Kebbell) and the fallen god Hephaestus (Bill Nighy) in his quest to rescue Zeus and save mankind from the "wrath" of the Titans.

Last month, actor-producer Tom Cruise was confirmed to produce and act in Paramount Pictures' adaptation of author Lee Child's novel One Shot. Finally, Cruise is getting some company.
Deadline reports that Rosamund Pike is in negotiations to take the female lead, that of a defense attorney named Helen Rodin. In the novel, Cruise's character, former Military Police Officer-turned-drifter Jack Reacher, investigates the deaths of five individuals, all shot by a lone sniper. Pike's Rodin is defending the man arrested for the shootings, and joins up with Cruise's Reacher to bring down the real culprits.
One Shot was adapted by screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (Valkyrie, The Usual Suspects), who will also direct for the first time since his 2000 crime drama The Way of the Gun. Production on the movie will start this fall in Pittsburgh. No release date for One Shot has been announced so far.
Pike can be seen next in September's Johnny English Reborn, followed by the October comedy The Big Year and, next March, in Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to Clash of the Titans. Hill and dewitt to join Stiller and Vaughn in Neighborhood Watch >> Posted 08.17.11 by Ryan
Wrath of the Titans, Warner Bros.' sequel to Clash of the Titans will have several familiar faces, including Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Gemma Arterton, and Ralph Fiennes. But it won't have Alexa Davalos.
Variety reports that Rosamund Pike (Die Another Day) is in negotiations to take over for Davalos, who played Princess Andromeda in the 2010 remake. In the movie, as well as Greek Mythology, Hades (Fiennes) plots to sacrifice Andromeda to the Kraken, but is defeated by Perseus (Worthington) after Zeus (Neeson) loudly (and memorably) proclaims that the Kraken should be released.
Pike has been rumored for several roles of late, including Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class and a female lead role in the Superman reboot.
Wrath of the Titans is scheduled to go into production in March from a script by Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson and under the direction of Jonathan Liebesman. Wrath opens March 30, 2012. Posted 02.09.11 by Ryan
Just as soon as Henry Cavill was cast as Clark Kent, aka Superman, in Zack Snyder's Superman franchise reboot, casting speculation quickly turned to who would be playing Superman's main squeeze, Lois Lane, with everyone from Kristen Stewart to Olivia Wilde being mentioned. Then, there was talk that Lois might not even make an appearance in the movie as Alice Eve, Diane Kruger, and Rosamund Pike were all said to be vying for an undisclosed role.
Now, popular — though not always reliable — entertainment site LatinoReview is claiming to have answers to a couple of the big questions surrounding the Superman reboot. According to the site's "most trusted reliable source," Lois will be in the movie, and the role that Eve, Kruger, and Pike are up for is none other than the villainous Ursa from Superman's own home planet of Krypton. what's the deal with ursa? >> Posted 02.08.11 by BrentJS

British actress Alice Eve nearly won the role of love interest Peggy Carter in The First Avenger: Captain America before fellow Brit Hayley Atwell landed the part. Eve will still get her chance to take part in a comic book movie, only instead of landing in Marvel's ongoing Avengers timeline, she will instead play one of the young mutants of Matthew Vaughn's upcoming X-Men: First Class.

Casting rumors won't stop for director Matthew Vaughn's upcoming X-Men: First Class, the prequel to the original X-Men trilogy. Kick-Ass actor Aaron Johnson has been rumored for the role of Cyclops (James Marsden in the X-Men trilogy and Tim Pocock in X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Michael Fassbender is reportedly up for the role of the young Magneto (originally portrayed by Sir Ian McKellan).

In the future, we will live our lives even more vicariously than we already do — that's the basic story behind Surrogates, a cinematic vision of a world in which living life through your robotic avatar is so compelling that no one really wants to live an ordinary life inside his or her own body anymore. It is a world of seemingly unlimited fantasy devoid of any consequences. You can be as attractive as you like. You can be a man, or a woman. You can even die and come back again. A lot like Second Life, but with much better graphics. And it all feels real.
The movie's cast and crew try to make this vision of the future as compelling as possible in a new featurette laced with an assortment of eye candy from the movie. It is, they contend, a cautionary tale about the de-humanizing direction online life seems to be heading. Along the way, we are treated to glimpses of telephone booths repurposed as avatar charging stations, a Terminator-like avatar assembly line, and Bruce Willis — or at least his avatar — engaged in all sorts of Die Hard-like action.
