Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays the man who comes between Keira Knightley and Jude Law in November's Anna Karenina, and when I chatted with the actor (who's best known for Kick-Ass), we talked about his luminous costar and why his character, Count Vronsky, falls for her. Taylor-Johnson had a lot of insight into Knightley, revealing how much the "super smart" actress studied the novel on which the film is based, as well as how impressed he was with her performance.
Sherlock Holmes is a timeless character who gets frequent updates, and CBS is bringing its own version of the literary detective to life this Fall with Elementary. There are a few twists: the sleuth, played by Brit Jonny Lee Miller, is a recovering addict who lives in present-day Brooklyn, and his Watson is a lady, played by Lucy Liu. To find out whether this reimagining is going to be your cup of tea, just check out my assessment.

Can you believe Gwyneth Paltrow turns 40 this week? As gorgeous as she is, the actress has proven herself to be more than just a pretty face, having won an Oscar early in her career and turning in a variety of excellent performances.

Check out our favorite 10 roles.
ABC's new drama Last Resort premieres tonight, and I recently sat down with a few cast members to talk about the series. Scott Speedman, Andre Braugher, Autumn Reeser, and Daisy Betts chatted about how it's more than just a military drama, the "man candy" factor, and whether they've had a chance to get on a real sub yet.
The cast of Catching Fire is now complete! Sam Claflin has been confirmed to play Finnick, and Betee has just been cast as well. We can't wait for the hotly anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games, and thankfully Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and the rest of the first chapter's players will be back to reprise their roles. That said, there are also some new additions to the Hunger Games family. Check out the cast, and let us know how excited you are for the movie!
Think your mom can be kind of mean sometimes? Watch the severely troubling trailer for Stoker and thank your lucky stars she's not crazy-eyed Evie Stoker (Nicole Kidman). We're introduced to Evie as she's talking to her daughter, India, played by Mia Wasikowska. "I can't wait for life to rip you apart," she says as India shivers in the corner. It's not exactly the heartfelt talk you'd expect to get after your father dies, as India's has in the film. The trailer goes on to show Evie getting close to India's uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), which creates problems for the whole family — especially when we learn that Uncle Charlie really has his sights set on India.
Nicole Kidman is a powerful actress, but this one might be too creepy for me. From the sound effects to the digitized spider crawling up India's sock, this trailer had me squirming. The movie is set for a March 1 release, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
