Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop+ Photos of Nicole Kidman getting into character as Grace Kelly have been released. Kidman will portray the Hollywood starlet-turned-royalty in the biopic Grace of Monaco, set in 1962. Not surprisingly, she looks as effortlessly chic and classy as the late Oscar winner.

Clint Eastwood Says 3-D is Just a Phase

Clint EastwoodHe may be a fan of Beyonce, but Clint Eastwood is not one for 3-D movies.

The 80-year-old actor and director believes 3-D does have a place in the movie world, but he has never found reason to use it in one of his films.

"I've lived through phases of 3-D at various times and it has come into popularity and left again. There's always going to be different stories and I think 3-D would be an interesting way to make a film. I haven't found a project that would lend itself to that. It could be distracting in certain types of subject matter."

However, Clint does believe it is important to embrace new types of films, as he has done by working on different genres for the last decade. "Most people making films are trying to do new things. I could have been satisfied to stick with the genres I became known for. In the last decade I've been doing different films."

Beyonce KnowlesA remake that's been talked about for some time now is finally being developed -- and it comes with a big surprise.

Although it had been rumored that Russell Crowe would star opposite the singer, no male lead has been announced at this point.

Filming on the movie iis expected to being in the fall.

Megamind

Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis and Tyler Perry contributed to one of the largest November weekends in box office history.

Todd Phillips’ , featuring Galifianakis and Robert Downey Jr., also had an impressive open despite landing into second place.

Box Office Breakdown: Saw Franchise Ends with a Win

Saw 3D

The Saw franchise, which has been churning out annual entries since kicking off in 2004, introduced a new twist to the latest October entry. That visual element, plus a calendar shift, helped Saw 3D take first place over the holiday weekend.

Despite the $22.5 million debut, Saw 3D – the seventh and final film in the series – didn’t exactly end the series with a bloody bang. The horror flick had the fifth-best open in the entire franchise -- and that's including the higher ticket prices. (Only the 2004 original and 2009’s Saw VI – which was pitted directly against Paranormal Activity – did worse.)

Clint Eastwood Tired of Himself

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip,

Clint Eastwood

has no interest in seeing himself on film.

The Oscar-winning director prefers to stay behind the camera allowing others to take center stage, but insists he has no plans to quit acting altogether.

“I leave that to younger actors now. I’m not a prize fighter who has to capture another victory. Since I worked as a director for the first time on Play Misty for Me in 1970, I’ve become tired of seeing myself on the big screen,” the 80-year-old said. “That doesn’t mean I’m going to stop acting, though.”
