He plays a good guy, or as good as the often troubled guys populating Quentin Tarantino movies can be, in the upcoming Django Unchained, but Christoph Waltz is never as delightful as when he turns on his menacing smile, all charm and terror mixed into one unsavoury villain.
He'll have the chance to scare the felt (?) off Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang during their next caper, set in Europe, which makes the introduction of polyglot Waltz as an Interpol agent a perfect fit.
James Bobin, who directed last year's inventive reboot, is helming this one and writing it alongside collaborator Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) and even though the unifying, superfan element that is Jason Segel has stepped away from his childhood-fave franchise, word has it that he may pop up in a cameo.
The name’s Bond, James Bond. We look back at the past fifty years of the suave super spy in our quiz on all things 007. We’ve been counting down with our 30 Days of Bond coverage in anticipation of Skyfall and the wait is finally coming to an end until Daniel Craig is back in action on the big screen. We can’t wait to see the newest Bond babes and watch 007 take on his latest enemies.
Grab a martini - shaken, not stirred - and see if you have what it takes to join the elite ranks of MI6. Keep reading to take the Bond quiz!
So now that you've had a few days to process the news that Disney bought LucasFilm and audiences would once again be taking a trip through the cosmos with Episode 7 on the way, it's now time to talk about who should helm this unexpected franchise re-vamp.
Unexpected, unless you're George Lucas, Disney CEO Bob Iger or on-screen sibs Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, who were told about the plans for more Star Wars this summer. Everyone else was, well, gobsmacked, although the reception has been rather positive since it seems that the appetite for all things Skywalker and Han Solo is pretty insatiable.
I mean, it even got me seriously thinking, so casual a Star Wars fan I'm more of an observer, about who will be handed the light saber, as it were, to take on directing duties for the next sci-fi epic.
Landing on a list of 10 choices - some obvious, some ambitious, some wishful thinking - let's hear who you think is most suited to take us into the next generation of galactic adventures.

Jodie Foster is adding a new trophy to her collection - a lifetime-achievement honor at the Golden Globes.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Thursday that Foster will receive the group's Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 70th annual Globes ceremony on January 13.
Foster, 49, is a two-time Globes and Academy Award winner. She was honoured with leading actress trophies at both ceremonies for 1991's The Silence of the Lambs and 1988's The Accused, which she won in a three-way tie at the Globes with Sigourney Weaver for Gorillas in the Mist and Shirley MacLaine for Madame Sousatzka.
What movie do you direct after your foray onto the world stage netted four Oscars - Best Picture, Best Director, Lead Actor, Original Screenplay - but a big-screen adaptation of a beloved musical?
Tom Hooper's (The King's Speech) version of Les Misérables has given us ethereal posters, emotive trailers with Anne Hathaway pleading in song, Hugh Jackman looking rugged, Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne in love and newcomer Samantha Barks singing in the rain, which, combined, sets the tone for an inventive, thoughtful take on the Victor Hugo classic.
But with the release of a poster with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen, who play the villainous innkeepers Thénardiers, the tone takes a drastic shift to the Tim Burton-esque and left us a bit confused.
Take a look at the posters for yourself, after the jump.
Perhaps hairy-footed hobbits can teach us all something about safety.
Most regular travelers pay little attention to those snooze-inducing inflight safety videos. But Air New Zealand has found some magic by celebrating the upcoming premiere of the first in the Hobbit movie trilogy.
The airline's four-minute safety video featuring the character Gollum and film director Peter Jackson got more than 2 million hits on YouTube within a day of being posted Thursday. The carrier calls itself "the airline of Middle-earth" and cabin staff appear in the clip as film characters.
Watch the safety demonstration vid, cheekily titled An Unexpected Briefing, after the jump!
From James Bond with his silver Aston Martin, to Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress) emerging from the surf in that famous white bikini, to the unfortunate Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton) prone on a bed covered in gold paint, to villainous Blofeld (Donald Pleasance) and his feline friend, the Bond film series has more than it's fair share of iconic images.
The blockbuster action franchise is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a fair amount of fanfare amid the release of 007's 23rd big-screen installment, Skyfall. The newest Bond feature, directed by Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig, hits theatres on November 9.
Check out stills from the film here and then take a look back over the past 50 years of 007 with the gallery after the cut!
Denzel Washington plays the hero in his new movie Flight, now playing in Cineplex theatres. As an airline pilot whose quick-thinking averts disaster during a plane crash, the post-crash spotlight quickly turns on his substance abuse problems and calls his performance history into question.
We turn the spotlight on Washington’s career in our poll this week. Nominated for five Oscars, he’s brought two of the gold statuettes home for Best Supporting Actor in Glory and Best Actor for Training Day. He’s certainly come a long way from his first big screen credit as “Alley Mugger #1” in Death Wish in 1974. They must have seen something special in him to cast him as the lead mugger, right?
We’ve listed some of Denzel Washington’s most popular films and now it’s up to you to pick your favourite. Hit the jump to cast your vote!
