Catwoman’s Iconic Look Through the Decades — Who Wore it Best?

All this fuss over the first look at Anne Hathaway ‘s maybe-official Catwoman garb in The Dark Knight Rises brings to mind Selina Kyle’s sartorial choices over the years, since her 1940 debut in Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s Batman #1 comic. Much has changed through the decades, from Catwoman’s sultry swingin’ ’60s shimmer to, well, Halle Berry’s unfortunate bra ‘n’ leather pants getup. Will Hathaway’s be-goggled Selina Kyle fare any better than her predecessors?

Bad Movies We Love: 17 Again

I have disturbing news about those countless movies in which pairs of characters switch bodies and walk two moons in each others’ Reeboks: They’re often good! Seriously. From Big and Vice Versa to the Lindsay Lohan Freaky Friday remake and the Katherine Heigl TV movie Wish Upon a Star , the switcheroo trope is a proven success model. There are exceptions, of course — such as Like Father, Like Son and The Hot Chick — but it’s hard to screw up a formula that forces its stars to go so broad. Then there’s 17 Again , which forces its stars (including switcheroo movie The Change-Up ‘s Leslie Mann ) into a story about grim adulthood and Zac Efron hair. It’s bad with Garnier succulence!

Watch Emile Hirsch Fight Invisible Aliens in The Darkest Hour

Oh, how quickly a night at the Moscow nightclub can devolve into a life or death alien situation. One minute, you’re posing for pictures with your friends as house music grinds behind you and the next, you’re on your back shooting flames into the air and yelling Rambo -style at invisible invaders who have come to Earth to steal your electricity and destroy your golden retrievers. (Or something.) It’s a tough battle, but you, as an American twentysomething tourist, are somehow most equipped to fight it. At least that is the story of Emile Hirsch’s character in Chris Gorak’s The Darkest Hour . Let’s view the trailer for this 3-D sci-fi flick ahead.

3 Simple Suggestions for a Global Clue Remake

Two and a half years ago, Universal announced that Clue was getting a big-screen revamp in the form of a global caper directed by Gore Verbinski. Well, most of that information remains true: Clue , Gore Verbinski, and globetrotting are all part of the picture, but Universal has dropped the property in favor of its other board game-based projects like Candy Land , Battleship , Ouija , and the Taylor Lautner-attached Stretch Armstrong . Now, here’s what makes Clue different than other board games — at least in my eyes: It rules , and those properties don’t. In order to protect the valor of Clue , Movieline is offering three ways for the film to retain the sinister cool of its original film and game(s). Frankly, Miss Scarlet, we give a damn.

Who Are Captain America’s Biggest Foreign Box-Office Allies? [UPDATE]

Before Captain America: First Avenger was released in July, much was made about how the title — and title character in his red, white and blue — would play in foreign markets. In fact, three countries (Russia, Ukraine and South Korea) even decided to release the film with the Marvel-approved shortened title The First Avenger . Following a successful showing stateside , good ol’ Cap made his worldwide debut in many big foreign markets over the weekend; as the numbers trickle in, it looks he’s got some pretty enthusiastic allies.

Who is the Most Surprising Omission on the Forbes List of Highest-Earning Actors in Hollywood?

In a similar fashion with what they did with actresses , Forbes has released a list of the 15 highest-earning actors in Hollywood (caveat here for the perhaps inexact figures). Topping the list? Not Johnny Depp (No. 2) or Will Smith (No. 4), but Leonardo DiCaprio, who — thanks to his one-two 2010 punch of Shutter Island and Inception — has earned upward of $77 million in the last year. Kudos, Leo! The rest of the list is populated with familiar faces like Adam Sandler, Tom Cruise and Tim Allen. Wait, what is Tim Allen doing here?
