How To Be Single cast are all about girl power!

“We’re shedding the stigma that we need men for power and money and the idea that we were only meant to be a wife.”

Empowering words from How to Be Single actress Alison Brie, who was speaking at the London Premiere of the new rom-com on Tuesday night. Braving the elements to attend the elegant, if slightly damp, event in Leicester Square, Alison, who plays unmarried Lucy in the flick, explained how the film is more than just another rom-com, that How to Be Single strives to break old-fashioned societal views and expectations of women, saying “now that women can have children later and women are focusing on their careers longer, you can really be single and it isn’t a negative thing” and learning to enjoy single life, reveling in the freedom of it, is what How to Be Single is all about.

Rebel Wilson, Dakota Johnson, and Leslie Mann, the other three leading ladies, were also present, umbrellas at the ready. Mann also spoke about how the film portrays strong female characters, something which she said is lacking in the film world. Rebel Wilson agreed, saying that she loves how her own career has seen her take part in films with powerful female presences, such as Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, adding “I love the girl power”.

Dakota Johnson, who stars as Alice, revealed how much fun she had on set, particularly with Rebel, who she said was “amazing to work with, she’s smart and funny and her brain never stops working”. How to Be Single hits theatres in time for Valentines Day, to show all the single ladies out that if you’re not having fun being single, then you’re not doing it right!

Zoolander 2 cast channel their inner models for New York premiere

The stars shined big and bright at the New York premiere of Zoolander 2 last night, as the cast were photographed strutting their stuff not down the red carpet, but down the catwalk. Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, and Penelope Cruz channeled their chic character counterparts and worked the catwalk with a style Derek Zoolander himself would be proud of.

Zoolander 2 World Premiere

When asked about his modelling technique and if he looked to Derek for guidance, Stiller told People “Um, well that was Derek, that wasn’t me. When Derek is out there, it isn’t me and he channels something from higher, you know? It’s just like a pure inner beauty that he channels that I can’t take any responsibility for.”

Zoolander 2 World Premiere

Everybody who’s anybody came out to cheer the cast along, with many famous faces attending the chic event, from Anna Wintour, who features in the fashionable flick, to models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, as well as Jennifer Aniston, whose husband Justin Theroux plays Evil DJ and who also co-wrote the script for Zoolander 2 with Stiller.

Zoolander 2 World PremiereZoolander 2 opens worldwide on Friday 12th, with Derek and Hansel returning to once again prove that there is more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking… just about.

Zoolander 2 Review

Two of the worlds really, really, ridiculously good-looking male models re-launch themselves onto the runway in Zoolander 2 for what turns out to be not so much a really, really, ridiculously good sequel, but rather one that is merely good enough. Perhaps if the major faux pas of showing the film’s funniest scenes in the trailers as part of the build up to the much-hyped release had not been committed, such as the theatrical assassination of Justin Bieber, or the return of the criminal couture designer Mugatu (Will Farrell), then Ben Stiller’s second outing as Derek could have been much more amusing. However, foreseeing these gags aside, Zoolander 2 does fashion some hilarious funnies, parodying the self-indulgent selfie culture with which modern day life is so suffused, allowing us to have a good laugh at our own vanity when we laugh at Derek’s pouty poses. Indeed, Derek may even be dubbed the Father of the Selfie, with the Zoolander cast recently cementing their place in the Guinneas World Book of Records for a photo taken with the longest selfie-stick ever. For serious.

Zoolander 2Directed and written by Stiller, Zoolander 2 trails our two breath-taking beauties, Derek and Hansel (Owen Wilson), who must save the day when the world’s most beautiful celebrities are being killed, all with Derek’s signature ‘Blue Steel’ look on their faces. Teaming up with Interpol Fashion Division Agent Valentina (Penelope Cruz), the pair set out to fix things the only way they know how, by once again strutting their stuff on the runway and reclaiming the adoration of the fiercest fashionistas, many of whom pop up in the movie, including Anna Wintour, Valentino, and Marc Jacobs, among others. Indeed, Zoolander 2 is a very glitzy affair, with too many cameos to count, as everybody from Bieber to Katy Perry to Ariana Grande to Benedict Cumberbatch to Sting, to name but a select few, putting in an appearance, as apparently everybody wanted in on the chic comedy.

The talented cast, which also includes Kristen Wiig who gives a hilarious performance as the devilish designer Alexanya Atoz, deliver a film that, although may not split sides, will certainly tickle ribs.

Dad’s Army Review

Dad’s Army, a wonderfully witty remake of the beloved BBC TV series about the activities of the British Home Guard during World War II which ran from 1968 to 1977, has marched into theatres, to the delight fans of the classic comedy. Honouring the original series while at the same time somewhat modernising the tale, director Oliver Parker delivers a fun and nostalgic remake detailing the platoon’s many misadventures.

Dad's Army

Set in the sleepy seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea in 1944, commencing after the events which are depicted in the series, we see how the hotchpotch members of the Home Guard deal with a German spy, and, even more terrifying, a visiting female journalist. The stellar cast include Bill Nighy as the sarcastic Sergeant Wilson, Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring, The Inbetweeners’ Blake Harrison as Private Pike, Michael Gambon as a dithering Private Godfrey, and Catherine Zeta-Jones as glamourous journalist Rose Winters. With such a capable cast, there was never really any doubt about Dad’s Army being victorious.

Dad's Army

Full of playfully comic scenes, such as when the men are faced with a fiercely formidable enemy, one that will require all of their military might to defeat – a stray bull, from which a local famer rescues them; or when, during camouflage practice, Godfrey relieves himself against a tree only for the tree to yell in shock as it turns out to be one of his fellow soldiers whose tree disguise was a bit too convincing. Then, when the men are recruited to apprehend a German spy, Captain Mainwaring declares “this is our chance to play a real part in the war”, to which his men flap about witlessly. Oh, dear.

dads-army-trailer

Brimming with the old series’ winning style of slapstick comedy, this charming movie is purely good fun, and, even though the writing is rather hackneyed at times, that can be forgiven as it is guaranteed to have you laughing out loud. Brilliant performances from the whole cast, most notably a highly witty Bill Nighy, Dad’s Army is amusing and lively throughout, and will not disappoint those seeking a hearty chuckle.

Zoolander 2 London Fan Screening

Lights! Camera! Selfie-stick!

Have you ever wondered if there is more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking? Like attempting to achieve something that no one else has, like, say, breaking the record for a photo captured by the world’s longest selfie stick perhaps? Well, Derek Zoolander achieved just that at the London Fan Screening of Zoolander 2 on Thursday 4th February, an accomplishment which shall go down in a blaze of glory in the history books, or at least the Guinness Book of World Records. For serious.

Creator of the legendary Zoolander, Ben Stiller, was even presented with a certificate from a Guinness Book of World Records representative for the feat.

Stiller strutted his stuff along the red carpet for the special event, along with the rest of the talented cast which includes Owen Wilson, Will Farrell, Kristen Wiig, and Penelope Cruz. Also joining in the fashionable affair was designer Valentino, who was snapped posing with a starstruck Zoolander.

Fifteen years after Zoolander first smouldered onto our screens with his trademark ‘Blue Steel’ look, Derek and Hansel return to save the day when the world’s most beautiful celebrities start getting picked off one by one, among them, prepare yourself, Justin Bieber! And just when the world was starting to appreciate his musical prowess; so cruel. Speaking about the original film, Stiller told the Press Association “I felt bad for Derek after the first movie came out, because I think he thought he was going to have a bigger career after the movie, and nobody really went to the movie. And his modelling career kind of went down. Last few years there’s been a resurgence and now he’s like back on top really, back in the limelight. I think when he realised the first movie wasn’t a documentary and it was actually supposed to be fun – because he tried to sue Paramount – he got very confused. Anyway, it’s nice to have him back”. It certainly is nice to have the chameleon of fashion back on screens, as I think we can all agree it has been a long time, no Z. Fans can rejoice as the wait is finally over, with Zoolander 2 previewing in theatres Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th before officially opening on Friday 12th.
