    Poster & Images Debut From 'Captain America' Short Film 'Agent Carter'

    The Marvel movies haven't exactly been great when it comes to giving exciting roles to female characters (and performers). Sure, there are usually female characters in these movies but they're almost always playing second (or third) banana. Even when noted feminist Joss Whedon made "The Avengers," h...

    'Captain America' Star Hayley Atwell Joins Ray Winstone & Plan B In TV Cop Remake 'The Sweeney'

    'Homeland' Lead Damian Lewis & Steven Mackintosh Also In Cast"Captain America: The First Avenger" was a funny one, wasn't it? The first half was the best superhero of the year, the second, a plotless, uneven mess. But it had many pleasures, and first among them was Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. Given an unusually well-drawn female character for a comic book movie to get her teeth into, the British actress, a relative unknown in the U.S. who took the role after it was turned down by the likes of Keira Knightley and Emily Blunt, knocked it out of the park, proving feisty, kick-ass, and vulnerable, often within the same scene, showing wider aud...

    Hayley Atwell, Diane Kruger & Kate Beckinsale Contend For 2nd Female Lead In Tom Cruise's 'Oblivion'

    It seems that Tom Cruise can't stop making movies right now. He's got "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and "Rock of Ages" in the bag, he's currently shooting "One Shot," and after that the suddenly busy actor will roll right into the "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion." The mo...

    Who Were The Winners And Losers Of The Summer Of 2011?

    As the summer winds die down with a flat and uninspired whimper, the realization sets in: the summer of 2011 was for the birds. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was the last major tent-pole to open, followed by sleeper hits like "The Help" and the not-so-successful R-rated action comedy, "30 Minutes or Less." Many had forecast that the overstuffed summer would prove disastrous, with Jon Favreau predicting that, "There’s not a weekend where there won’t be teeth on the floor," but ironically it's Favreau's film that proved to be one of the biggest box-office disappointments. Financially, films did very well with three billion-dollar blockbuster...

    Hayley Atwell, Alexa Davalos, Rosamund Pike Vying For Female Lead Opposite Tom Cruise In 'One Shot'

    With "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" already in the can and coming out this December, Adam Shankman's "Rock of Ages" musical currently shooting, and "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion" prepping up for a summer 2013 release, Tom Cruise is making plans for his next big tentpole vehicle. This time it's an adaptation of Lee Child's 2005 crime thriller "One Shot" that is being set up over at Paramount. Being scripted by Cruise's go-to screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who penned "Valkyrie" and 'Ghost Protocol,' the writer practically tailor makes scripts for the superstar whenever the A-lister is interested or semi-intere...

    Still Alive? Hayley Atwell Says She's Eyeing A Role In Jimi Hendrix Biopic With Andre 3000 To Star

    There's probably no project more difficult to mount in Hollywood than a music biopic. Not only do you have to distill the life of a musician into a reasonable running time, there is also a web of music clearances, estate approval and other myriad legalities that need to be navigated before you can g...

    Hey, "Captain America" is coming out! We have to confess we'd kind of forgotten about the film: Marvel and Paramount haven't yet been saturation marketing the flick in the same way that other superhero blockbusters have been ("X-Men First Class," you were pretty good, but there was really no need fo...
