Rihanna, not satisfied with only singing and acting, has taken a step into the fashion world by designing a collection for U.K clothing chain River Island. Judging by what the critics are saying, perhaps the star should have stopped at acting. The collection, which launched over the weekend, has been described as “uninspired, underwhelming and just plain unattractive” and the fashion show itself “a horror show”. Including belly chains, see through mesh tops and high slit skirts , the collection appears to be highly influenced by the superstar as something only she would — or should — wear. However it has been acknowledged that the collection will probably still sell simply due to the fact that the name Rihanna is attached.
Zero Dark Thirty and Argo have taken the top prizes at the 2013 Writers Guild Awards.

Who can make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs?
Before we had more details about Disney's plans for its newly-acquired Star Wars movie franchise, we asked you who you thought would make a good replacement for Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the planned Star Wars: Episode VII movie. You chose Nathan Fillion by a wide margin — an excellent choice considering Joss Whedon based the character that Fillion played in Serenity on Han Solo — but the more we hear about Episode VII, the more we're convinced that Ford will be reprising the role himself. That doesn't mean that the hunt for Han Solo is over, however.
Last week, Disney announced that at least two spin-off movies set in the Star Wars universe are in development, in addition to the new trilogy that will begin with Episode VII. One of the spin-offs will be set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and chronicle the adventures of Han Solo before his fateful meeting with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness) on Tatooine. Considering Ford was 35 when he played Solo for the first time, Disney will likely be looking to cast an actor in his 20's or early 30's, which puts Fillion, at 41, out of the running for the gig. Put on your thinking caps once again and help us to choose the best actor to play the smuggler, gambler and scoundrel who will one day woo a princess and help save the galaxy.

Time to break out the Kleenex again.
When it comes to searching for a sure thing, romantic tear-jerker, Hollywood seems to look no further than Nicholas Sparks, the author behind book-turned-movies like The Notebook, Dear John and the upcoming Safe Haven. In fact, Safe Haven is the eighth movie to be made from a Sparks novel, following April's The Lucky One.
Though Safe Haven only started shooting in June, the first trailer for the movie is already online and should please Sparks fans. Set in North Carolina (Sparks' home state), Safe Haven follows a mysterious woman (Julianne Hough) who settles into the town of Southport and falls in love with a widowed shop owner (Josh Duhamel) until her dark past catches up with her. Yes, there is a romantic scene in the rain. Yes, Dear John director Lasse Hallstrom helmed the movie. Yes, we smell another hit.more romantic trailers

Who Should Ride the Lightning?
For a time, it appeared as if “The Fastest Man Alive” would be the next DC Comics superhero to get his own feature film. After initially commissioning Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) to pen a script for a live-action The Flash movie, Warner Bros. (WB) ended up passing on Mazeau’s script and hired Green Lantern writers Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim to write the screenplay. That was over a year ago, however, and WB appears to have put the brakes on all of their planned solo superhero movies as they strategize their next movie in the wake of the end of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Some industry insiders have suggested that WB plans to copy Marvel Studios’ formula for The Avengers, but in reverse — first releasing the super-team movie and then spinning off individual characters into solo movies — which would mean that the Flash's first big screen appearance would be in the Justice League movie.
There have been several superheroes called the Flash, but the current incarnation, and the one that WB is likely to go with in the Justice League movie, is Barry Allen, who works as a forensic scientist when he's not circling the globe looking for trouble. Who do you think has what it takes to play a fast-talking speed freak who is also a detail-oriented detective?

Who Should Rule Atlantis?
First appearing way back in More Fun Comics #73 (Sept. 1941), Aquaman is one of the oldest comic book characters in existence. His longevity in popular culture, coupled with his incredible powers — super strength and durability, telepathy, ability to breathe underwater — and the fact that he is also the king of Atlantis on top of being a superhero should place Aquaman in the upper echelon of comic book characters, yet he has always been considered something of a laughing stock outside of the comic book community. A popular subject of derision on TV shows like Saturday Night Live and The Big Bang Theory, Aquaman's only live-action highlights have come from his appearances on Smallville, as played by Alan Ritchson, and in an Entourage sub-plot in which the too-lean and not-blonde Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) played the "King of the Seven Seas" in a faux James Cameron movie.
Apparently, there is some talk at Warner Bros. about bringing Aquaman to the big screen in a solo movie, but the studio is far more invested in developing Green Lantern 2, The Flash and Wonder Woman so Aquaman's big screen debut will likely be as part of the ensemble Justice League movie. Who do you think has what it takes to not only salvage Aquaman's reputation, but stand alongside Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice Leaguers on the big screen?

This week's confirmation that Michael Bay would return to the director's chair for Transformers 4 (working title) wasn't a surprise to anyone, except perhaps the supporting cast of the past three Transformers movies.
Transformers star Shia LaBeouf already revealed that he does not want to return for a fourth installment, saying that, "I imagine they'll reboot it at some point with someone else." And last September, co-star Tyrese Gibson said that he thought both Bay and LaBeouf would return for a fourth movie. Turns out they're both right. duhamel says no one is returning >> Posted 02.17.12 by Ryan
In case you haven't checked your calendar — it's award season. With the Oscars just a few weeks away, the Academy joined forces with Funny or Die to shoot a new Oscar promo with Transformer co-stars Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel, as they search for the elusive Billy Crystal to host the Oscars. There are cameos by Robin Williams, Vinnie Jones, and William Fichtner, who gives a pretty damn good Brian Grazer impression.Funny? Well, after the Oscar's stumble last year, the bar is set pretty low for a chuckle. watch the promo >> Posted 01.06.12 by Chris
With the holidays right around the corner, it's no surprise there are plenty of rom-coms to ring in the new year — a major one being the heavily celebrity-saturated, New Year's Eve. With big names such as Ashton Kutcher, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Sarah Jessica Parker and Josh Duhamel (just to name a few), what's not to like? Apparently, a lot.

"...the kind of marzipan movie that can sweetly soak up a holiday evening."— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Few of the plot strands connect to one another, much less resolve themselves with any degree of wit or daring."— Andrew Barker, Variety
"...a dreary plod through the sands of time until finally the last grain has trickled through the hourglass of cinematic sludge. How is it possible to assemble more than two dozen stars in a movie and find nothing interesting for any of them to do?"— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Time
"...a depressing two-hour infomercial pitching Times Square as the only place in the universe you want to be when the ball drops at midnight on Dec. 31. (Believe me, it's not.)"— Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A movie so excruciating that it makes its predecessor, Valentine's Day, seem like Nashville in comparison..."— Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
