Video: 4.3.2.1 Full Length Trailer

3 Apr

Check out the full length trailer for Noel Clarke‘s soon-to-be released film, “4, 3, 2, 1”. The film stars Michelle Ryan,  Ashley ‘Bashy’  Thomas, Arnold ‘Snakey Man’ Ocheng and Adam Deacon.  American rapper, Eve even makes an appearance.

4.3.2.1 is described as:

…a sexy, gripping thriller following three days in the lives of four very different girls. Starring some of Britain and Americas most exciting rising stars including Emma Roberts (Nancy Drew, Wild Child), Tamsin Egerton (St. Trinians), Ophelia Lovibond (Nowhere Boy, London Boulevard) and Shanika Warren-Markland (Adulthood), the four intricately woven stories are about four best friends who become involved in a major diamond heist.

I have to say that the trailer looks good, but I have a feeling it maybe one of those typical Brit flicks. I hope I’m proven wrong, either way i’ll still be watching it.

Golden Globes Red Carpet Exposed

19 Jan

I have to admit that  I was actually meant to post this up yesterday but didn’t get round to it, but Fashion is fashion and we always have time to have a snoop!

Before, I even get started with who came up trumps on Red carpet and who didn’t,  I have to say that the ‘Most Memorable’ award of the night (if there were such a thing) has to go to Mrs. Cannon herself,  Mariah Carey – I think she may have stolen some globes and hid them under her dress! Mariah wore a Herve Leger by Max Azria dress with a Judith Leiber clutch.

Best Dressed

Penlope Cruz blows the competition away

Penelope Cruz never gets it wrong as far as I’m concerned. She was definitely the best dressed of the night and gave a new meaning to LBD. The Latina’s Giorgio Armani Privé black lace gown was not lacking in detail, its dramatic beaded neckline and horizontal striping complemented her bodyshape as well as her 69 Carat Chopard diamonds.

Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson stunned the papparazzi in her strapless number from Marchesa silk but I’m not too sure if the Casadei’s Signature 3504 triple platform pump goes with the outfit but maybe it would look like a wedding dress otherwise.  I love the detail in the bodice, and something about it I can just image her on top of a wedding.

Drew Barrymoore caused a stir in Ateiler Versace

I personally like Drew’s nude coloured Atelier Versace gown, but many have criticised it due to the ‘distracting’ diamond embellishment. Drew also wore Jimmy Choo “Zena” platform sandals, a Roger Vivier “Boite de Nuit” clutch in Rose Gold, finished with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Robin Thicke & Paula Patton

Robin Thicke and his pregnant actress wife, Paula Patton were also at the Globes to support her fellow Precious castmates. Paula wore a gown by Kaufman Franco, jewellery by Neil Lane and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Worst Dressed

Tina Fey is a disaster

Comedian Tina Fey, took the crown for worst dressed in this Zac Posen ensemble which she teamed up with Christian Louboutin heels and Fred Leighton jewellery. It’s simply too busy and Tina may have been able to salvage it with better shoes beacuse this teacup is not flattering!

Chloe Sevigny comes dressed as salad

I don’t know what Chloe Sevigny was thinking when her stylist pulled this out, but it clearly wasn’t “put it back in the closet”. Chloe’s silver lilac Valentino gown looked like an explosion of salad.

Zoe Saldana gets it wrong

Avatar actress, Zoe Saldana had to be one of the worst dressed in her rose coloured Louis Vuitton gown. It’s a shame because she’s could have pulled off something amazing with that figure. Also spotted on the Red carpet in a lilac number was our very own Leona Lewis. I guess she’s living the high life in the USA then!

Now that the Golden Globes are over, bring on the Oscars (and the Brits) because I bet there are definitely going to be some fashion tragedies!!

Mo’Nique Wins Golden Globe + Full List of Winners

Mo'Nique scoops a Golden Globe

Mo'Nique scoops a Golden Globe

This morning (last night for our American readers), witnessed the 67th Golden Globe Awards, Beverley Hills which was hosted by our very own Ricky Gervais and set the wheels in motion for  the annual awards season.

Despite the numerous amount of info we could share about all the good and not-so-good outfits on the red carpet (we will be posting those up soon) we’re happy to report that Mo’Nique, who you’d probably remember from The Parkers or her new talk show on BET,  walked away with the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Precious.

Surprisingly, Mo’Nique wasn’t her usual loud and vivacious self on stage, but instead delivered a heart-warming and emotional speech dedicated to victims of abuse. A huge contrast to her co-star Mariah Carey’s drunken speech a few weeks back at the Palm Spring Awards!

Jedward are about to jump on the Celebrity Big Brother Bandwagon

Jedward to star on Celebrity Big Brother

Jedward to star on Celebrity Big Brother

Reality TV’s favourite duo and my worst nightmare, Jedward will be guests this Sunday on Big Brother’s Little Brother and Big Brother’s Big Mouth. A spokesperson for BB confirmed the Jedward appearance and said:

“Ex-Factor twins John and Edward will be joining George Lamb all next week on Big Brother’s Little Brother which airs daily at 6pm on E4..Bringing their unique Irish charm to the show, they’ll be sharing their views on the celebrity housemates and going behind the scenes at the house. “

Last time I checked there was nothing charming about those two, totally annoying and clueless if you ask me. This attempt at presenting is obviously a ploy to ween them back into our TV consciousness, so I say to Jedward -please give it up, you were only entertaining as an object of ridicule on the X-factor, I don’t want to see you on any more of the TV programmes that I like to watch. Thanks.

Rumour has it that they will be releasing a song with Vanilla Ice! He truly must be broke and desperate!

Simon Cowell Leaves American Idol

Simon Cowell Leaves American Idol

Simon Cowell Leaves American Idol

It has been confirmed that Mr. Money himself, Simon Cowell will be leaving the hit show, American Idol. So this will be his last season on the show, which has just welcomed new judge Ellen Degeneres – I love her!

Personally, I smell a major revamp of the show and some pre-season PR! But I’ve got to admit that I’m not too sad if Simon is leaving American Idol because I haven’t watched it since it was confined to ITV2 (and removed from ITV Player!!) but luckily living in the UK means that we have plenty more opportunities to watch Mr. Cowell on X-Factor or anywhere else for that matter. So perhaps this means we might be seeing more of him on this side of the pond? Bring it on! because I can’t get enough of Mr. Cowell, he can be my sugar daddy any day!

Justice for MJ? Doctor Faces Manslaughter Charges

Dr. Conrad Murray Faces Charges

Dr. Conrad Murray Faces Charges

Dr. Conrad Murray, the heart specialist employed as Michael Jackson’s doctor at the time of his death, is currently facing manslaughter charges.

Murray who has admitted to administering the King of Pop with the powerful sedative Propofol (a drug usually given to patients in hospitals) will be charged with negligence for his role in MJ’s untimely death.  However, the doctors defence is that the singer demanded the drug and he was monitoring hi’s condition whilst Michael was under sedation.

All I have to say is that Dr. Murray probably needs to start preparing for a long strength in the penitentiary – so he may want to keep his soap on a rope!
