Posted: July 9th, 2013 | Author: |

Dressing Steve Jobs: a piece of cake, right? After all, he mostly stuck to wearing the same thing day in, day out: those infamous 501 Levi’s and a no-nonsense black turtle neck.

In upcoming biopic Jobs, we discover not only how the billionaire founded his Apple empire (alongside co-founders Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne), but also how he came to end up in that singularly straight-forward attire. Read More…

In his last solo movie outing, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America (as played by Chris Evans) was whisked from the 1940s to present day America. That meant that when he popped up in last year’s Avengers Assemble, he was wearing a slick new super-suit that caught him up with the times.

The first official shot of Paul Giamatti as super-villain Rhino has been unveiled by Marc Webb, the director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Though an earlier, grainer pic gave us an initial glimpse at the character, Webb tweeted the official image of a somewhat angry-looking Giamatti direct from the film’s set. It confirms that the look of the character is somewhat different to what fans know from the comics – in the pages of Marvel, the Rhino wore a grey super-suit that came with a matching horn helmet.

Posted: May 10th, 2013 | Author: |

Did you know that Matthew McConaughey hails from a little place called Texas? If his unmistakable southern drawl wasn’t clue enough, his obsession with cowboy hats probably tipped you off.

It’s surely no coincidence that McConaughey’s sudden career renaissance circa 2010 (after years of service in dreadful rom-coms) coincided with his discovery of hats. Though McConaughey doesn’t don one in this week’s Mud, that’s merely a rare blip in his headware romance. Gandalf has his staff. McConaughey has hit hats. Read More…

Alexander Skarsgård Could Don The Warpaint As The Crow

Posted: May 1st, 2013 | Author: |

True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård is the latest actor to be linked to the long-in-gestation new movie version of The Crow. The Swedish actor, who plays vampire Eric on the raunchy HBO series, is currently the frontrunner for the role of Eric Draven in the comic-book fantasy, a man who returns from the dead to avenge the murder of his fiancée.

The Crow first made the leap to the big screen from the pages of James O’Barr’s 1989 comic book in 1994. Directed by Alex Proyas, that version of The Crow starred Brandon Lee, who infamously died on set when a prop gun was accidentally replaced with a real firearm. As in the comics, Lee’s goth-punk costume consisted of tight leather and black-and-white face paint. Read More…
