  • 'The Equalizer' Poster: Denzel Washington Is on His Way

    Odds against you? Need help? Call the Equalizer.

    "Odds against you? Need help? Call the Equalizer."

    Denzel Washington is coming to make things right in "The Equalizer," the movie adaptation of the TV drama which ran from 1985 to 1989 starring the late Edward Woodward.

    In the film, Washington takes on the role of Robert McCall, a retired intelligence operator who faked his own demise to live under the radar.

    But after finding a young woman (played by Chloe Grace Moretz)  in trouble with the Russian mob,  he returns to action to use his extreme tactics for good.

    "The Equalizer" reunites Washington with director Antoine Fuqua ("Olympus Has Fallen").

    The pair previously collaborated on 2001's "Traning Day," for which Washington won the Academy Award for Best Actor. Washington has been on a tear lately, still packing movie houses with action flicks like "The Book of Eli," "Unstoppable," "Safe House," and "2 Guns."

  • Sofía Vergara On Sex Scene With Sharon Stone: 'I Was Very Nervous'

    Modern Family siren gets it on with Basic Instinct star in Fading Gigolo,

    "Fading Gigolo" hits theaters on Friday and features two of the most gorgeous women in Hollywood, Sharon Stone and Sofía Vergara.

    John Turturro directed the film and stars as a man looking to make some cash by keeping some ladies company. Woody Allen, who barely ever appears in movies as just an actor, plays his pimp.

    In her first comments about what it was like to film a sex scene with both Sharon and John, Sofía opened to "The Insider."

    "I was very nervous, because it was my first threesome," the actress laughed. "I didn't want it to look like I didn't know what I was doing."

    While playing uninhibited roles isn't new for Sharon, her experience didn't quite help calm Sofía's nerves until she met the actress on set.

    "It was a little more nerve wrecking to know that your first threesome on camera is gonna be with Sharon Stone, a woman that is known for her sex scenes and her beauty.

  • MTV Movie Awards GIF Guide: Pecs, Puppies, and Peeta

    Singer Rita Ora reveals actor's guns.

    The MTV Movie Awards tend to deliver a good share of gaffes ("Catching Fires" — yeah, we heard that one, Cameron Diaz) and guffaws, like Mark Wahlberg's rambling acceptance speech for the show's Generation Award, but aside from a few brow-lifting moments, this year's fête was a bit of a snooze compared to past shows.

    At least we got to see some skin.

    It got a bit uncomfortable when Zac Efron won Best Shirtless Performance for his role as a book cover illustrator in "That Awkward Moment." You see, presenter and pop star Rita Ora, who took the stage with Jessica Alba, insisted that the winner take off their shirt.

    Beating out nominees Jennifer Aniston, Sam Claflin, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Liam Hemsworth, Efron hit the stage. As he got the first words of his speech out of his mouth, Ora reached from behind and ripped open his denim shirt. Smart of Efron to sport a shirt with snap buttons — easy removal.

  • Daniel Day-Lewis's portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in the 2013 film "Lincoln" brought him numerous accolades, including the Academy Award for best actor. But you might be surprised to know that Steven Spielberg actually cast Liam Neeson first. The actor opened up in the April issue of GQ Magazine on why he gave up his role in "Lincoln."

    "Natasha [Richardson, his wife] died in March, and then… I want to think it was toward the end of April, Steven got together a reading, and we all sat: Sally Field, John Lithgow, the actor said. "We started reading this, and there was an intro, and then I see "Lincoln": where I have to start speaking, and I just… a thunderbolt moment. I thought, "I'm not supposed to be here. This is gone. I've passed my sell-by date. I don't want to play this Lincoln. I can't be him."

  • ‘Fifty Shades’ First Look Is Full of Jamie Dornan Smouldering

    The trailer for 'Fifty Shades of Grey' has premiered at CinemaCon. Here's what you can expect to see.

    Well hello there, Mr. Grey.

    Christian Grey, that is, known to millions of book readers as the love interest du jour of E.L. James's hit "Fifty Shades of Grey," which Universal Pictures is bringing to the big screen next Valentine's Day. As part of their CinemaCon panel Tuesday, the studio served up a veritable buffet of trailer and teaser goodness, including the first look at footage from "Grey."

    First poster for Fifty Shades of Grey

    The nearly two-minute teaser opens with a cityscape look at Seattle, on a day with some sunshine but mostly grey skies. A soft, slow piano solo plays in the background (which sounds like an airy and eerie cover of Beyoncé's "Haunted") as we begin with Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) recounting her first meeting with Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) to her roommate, Kate (Eloise Mumford).

    "So, what was he like?" Kate asks Anastasia, which we hear in voiceover as the scene of Anastasia and Christian's first meeting plays out.
