“I’d love to live in a flat in Paris in the 1920s,” says Gill Pender (Wilson) wistfully. Gill is in thrall to the French capital, and dreams of escaping his unfinished book and unsympathetic fiancée, Inez (McAdams), to a time when the town was at its best. The cafés, the writers, the rain... “The only thing missing is the tuberculosis,” shoots back Inez’s friend Paul (Sheen). Midnight in Paris is a charming piece full of nostalgia, wit and – most importantly – laughs.

Ryan Gosling. The Gosling. Old Gozzles. Whatever you call him, it's undeniable that at the moment, he's the sexiest guy on the big screen (and that doesn't depend on the big screen).

Yeah, that Ryan Gosling is so hot right now. But he's been hot for some time. Since The Notebook, he's been a heartthrob for girls (and boys) around the world, but with The Ides of March out this year and Drive and Crazy, Stupid, Love making a glorious Gosling sandwich this week, he's getting everyone's love juices flowing more than ever.

So what's his secret? Allow us to introduce the Ryan Gosling acting masterclass. After careful detailed analysis of Old Gozzle's performances, we have distilled his entire acting technique into a few easy-to-follow tips. Here are seven simple steps to make you as cool as Ryan Gosling.

"I'm in a perplexing situation..." I know exactly what Owen Wilson means. Hiding upstairs from the Arsenal Champions League match, the only other source of distraction is the Midnight in Paris UK trailer. Both could be painful to watch.

But the trailer for Midnight in Paris gives me hope. Not just because it's got Owen Wilson perfectly cast as the director's neurotic persona ("You know how I like to think in the shower, get all the positive ions going," he babbles at his inquisitive wife) but also because Michael Sheen is in it. And not just any Michael Sheen. This is Michael Sheen with a beard.

Playing Allen's other stock character, the pseudo-intellectual, Sheen looks like his comic timing is on top form - unlike Anthony Hopkins in Allen's last mess, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. Add in Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, and some pretty Parisian backdrops, and this sparky trailer could be the sign of something special.

I hope so. Let's face it: it's not as if Arsenal are going to surprise me any time soon. And not even Arsene Wenger could beat Owen Wilson when it comes to saying the words "positive ions". It's worth watching the trailer several times just for that.

Midnight in Paris is out in UK cinemas on Friday 7th October. Read on for the full video, or head over this way to see the Midnight in Paris poster. (You could also visit the film's official Facebook page for pictures and stuff.)

Following her recent trip to Hollywood, Noomi Rapace has signed on to star in Sherlock Holmes 2.

Since The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo first hit cinemas, Rapace's intense performance as Lisbeth Salander has won her fans all over the industry. Now, the 30 year old actress will be taking on her first English-speaking role.

Work on Guy Ritchie's sequel has been speeding up over the months, with no official word yet on who will be playing Holmes' nemesis Moriarty. Speculation about the appearance of Mycroft, Sherlock's brother, is also doing the rounds. Until now, the only confirmed news has been that Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law will both return as Holmes and Dr Watson.

As for Rapace, she may well follow Rachel McAdams' steps and play a love interest for one of the two gents. She may even be a villain. Some sources are suggesting she'll be playing a French gypsy for some reason. Either way, she's bound to be impressive.

Shooting starts on Sherlock by the end of the year, with Ritchie's second outing now suffering from even higher expectations: they'll somehow have to top the BBC's recent take on the deerstalking detective. 



Terrence Malick is lining up his next film; a momentous occasion in the film industry calendar, given that he tends to spend 10 years on one before he's happy with it. But this is even more momentous, because (as far as the world is aware) he's still working on Tree of Life, which stars Brad Pitt and Sean Penn.

Still, Deadline Hollywood has reported that Terrence Malick has found romance. With Christian Bale, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Olga Kurylenko. Not a bad collection if you're looking for true love. He's bringing with him some of the team from Tree of Life and shooting is set for this autumn.

Things are moving quickly, which is strange for Malick. But, as we all expect, not a word has been said about the plot. But you hear that tiny, quiet buzz? That's the excitement only Malick can generate.

Director: Guy Ritchie
Cast: Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, Mark Strong, Kelly Reilly, Eddie Marsan

When the news spread that Guy Ritchie was taking on Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved brainbox, a little bit of fear was understandable. After all, this was the man who brought the world RocknRolla. The only people who weren't scared were the director's devoted fans. Not that their opinion mattered. And sure enough, he's given us a Sherlock sans deerstalker plus bare-knuckle brutality. This isn't the Holmes of your childhood. This isn't even a Holmes movie. This is a Robert Downey Jr movie. And it's quite a lot of fun.

The rain poured and the fans screamed, but that didn't stop the stars turning up last night for the premiere of Sherlock Holmes. Led by Robert Downey Jr. (complete with dashing hat), the cast, including Jude Law, Kelly Reilly and Rachel McAdams strolled down the carpet to witness this re-imagining of Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic detective. And you could watch the whole thing live from here.

But if you missed the video stream (there were a few technical issues - it seems Downey Jr. has fitted some kind of lead-coated anti-stalking device), then never fear, check out the best bits below. Yes, you can still enjoy Ritchie's colourful vocals and Jude Law's spotty scarf; Leicester Square never had it so good. Except for when Guy Ritchie went inside.

Read on for the full video (and more pretty pictures), or check out the rather fun trailers over here. We'll give you our official review shortly.

Yes, it's directed by Guy Ritchie, but we all know we're secretly looking forward to Sherlock Holmes. Reinventing the deerstalker detective in a London full of explosions, black magic and Robert Downey Jr., there's honestly no way it could look any more fun. Throw in Jude Law as Watson and Rachel McAdams as someone who occasionally takes her clothes off and it's a dead cert for silly entertainment. But now we have a new trailer to get us all excited once more.

You may have seen it on MTV the other day. Well, now it's here - clearly the better place to watch it. And, to go with the tasty new teaeser, Warner Bros. have even released 221B, an online adventure game. You can check that out over here. But before you do, head to our videos section for the third Holmes trailer, or read on for the sexy new poster.
