It’s pretty clear that Scarlett Johansson has enough physical assets to wow audiences starring as herself. But Johnsson showed off her ability to channel classic cinema stars in a photographic homage to legends of the past shot by Tim Walker. As you can see in the photos below, Johansson donned decades-old fashion – and breathed new life into them – to show her range and beauty as Marlene Dietrich, Sarah Bernhardt, Buster Keaton and Giulietta Masina in La Strada.
Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong faithfully reprise their roles, delivering every line like a punch line. One line in particular – “it happened again” – is particularly apt, as the biggest difference in the story between the first film and this is the location. In fact, The Hangover Part II feels less like a case of alcohol-induced amnesia and more like cash-grabbing deja vu.
It is often said that, in the fashion world, everything old becomes new again. Vogue Paris seems to be taking that idea a bit too far, however, as recent photo shoots in the magazine have borne uncanny resemblance to shoots from past years. The transition from Carine Roitfeld to Emmanuelle Alt at the editor-in-chief position appears to have drained some of the creativity from Vogue Paris; critics have pointed to the magazine’s tendency to recreate past shoots as a prime indication of that fact.
Although most people don’t dispute Lady Gaga‘s dominance of the pop world, the Born This Way songstress has some stiff competition, such as Beyonce and Britney Spears (kinda). But with Lady Gaga’s latest release, Born This Way (download here), she has raised the bar and the ball is now in the musical court of her rivals.
In what some are facetiously hinting is a sign that the end of the world is in fact coming May 21, former professional wrestler Macho Man Randy Savage has died. In addition for being known as a spokesman for Slim Jim beef jerky, Randy Poffo made waves as an outlandish WWF wrestler with the catchphrase “Oh, yeah!” Poffo died after suffering a heart attack while driving; he was 58.
Uh, okay. In what can only be described as a desperate cry for attention, Sean Combs, the musician/mogul/all-around-rich-guy once known as Puff Daddy, Diddy and a wide assortment of other names, has changed his moniker once again, this time to “Swag.” Although all of Combs’ names have a limited duration, the rapper set the time limit on this one, requesting to be called “Swag” for one week only.
By now you’ve probably heard about the end of the world May 21 rumors; radio evangelist Harold Camping has suggested that judgement day will occur Saturday. The latest word is that this will be a zombie apocalypse. Because of this, Bloginity has created a list of the best zombie movies to watch in preparation for this zombie apocalypse. We recommend you rent them all at once; why worry about late return fees when the end times are upon us?
On its surface, Bridesmaids doesn’t seem as though it should be a particularly hilarious film. The premise — protagonist Annie (Kristen Wiig) watches as her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), lives out her dreams and gets ready for marriage while Annie’s life slowly crumbles.
After coming dangerously close to a troublesome yet potentially hilarious Trump run for the White House, we couldn’t help but wonder what other celebrities might want to enter politics, for the presidency or any other position.
M-Bone, the rapper who most recently created a dance sensation with “Teach Me How to Dougie,” was killed in a drive-by shooting in Inglewood, California, last night.

M-Bone was reportedly sitting by himself in his car around 10:30 p.m. Sunday when another vehicle pulled up alongside his and fired.
The Tree of Life, a stirring film by writer-director Terrence Malick, has done just what every Cannes film aspires to do – create a buzz that has the entire film world talking. The Tree Of Life – Malick’s fifth film in a career that spans four decades – will debut in the United States May 27, although it’s hard to judge what the reaction will be, as the press screening found emphatic boos from some and energetic applause from others. Due to the mixed reaction, The Tree of Life has everyone at Cannes and around the film world focused on the work, and stars have stepped out to voice their opinions.
MoMA is celebrating motion pictures all summer long, and we’re not talking about The Hangover: Part 2. Instead, MoMA visitors will find professionally curated film exhibitions housed in each of the museum’s three theaters. As with all MoMA exhibitions, the film features range widely in topic — from celebrating Ireland to the individual achievements of Kathryn Bigelow — but do not range in quality, as all are immensely impressive. Here’s a look at Bloginity’s favorite upcoming film exhibitions at MoMA.

Tim Hetherington, a conflict photographer who rocketed to notoriety after producing and directing the film Restrepo, and Chris Hondros, a Getty Images photographer, were killed in Misurata, Libya amid heavy gunfire. Hetherington and Hondros, [...]
You may not have heard of Kimberly Caldwell – Without Regret, released today, is her debut full-length – but you may get the sense that the singer sounds a bit familiar. That may be because Caldwell has released music before, but it may also be because the slick production and pop-smart songwriting has a lot [...]
When a musician admits that an album was recorded during one’s spare time, in which he would otherwise be “just spend staring at walls,” that’s not exactly a good sign. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that Gorillaz – The Fall isn’t the band’s greatest release (or anywhere close). Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn [...]

Scream 4 hits theaters this Friday, nearly five full years since the first Scream film hit theaters in late 2006. While the Scream 4 trailer (check it out below) does make the film look promising, one can’t help but wonder whether the producers are simply trying too hard to capitalize on the franchise. Doing so [...]
