Iron Man 3 Not as Much Fun as Original – or The Avengers

Iron Man 3 Not as Much Fun as Original – or The Avengers

It's hard to know how battling a giant alien millipede might affect a guy, but it seems to have turned Iron Man 3's Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) into Bruce Wayne.

This post-Avengers Iron Man is a brooding insomniac, tinkering in his Batcave and so mired in existential angst that he's having panic attacks. He's so dour, it's actually a relief when a madman attacks his Malibu manse, blowing it off the map in one of the film's most spectacular scenes.

At least then we don't have to spend the entire threequel in Tony's head.

Tom Hardy Gets Cheeky with Jessica Chastain in Cannes

Originally posted 05/31/2012 05:35PM

They were one of the hottest casts to walk the red carpet this year in Cannes. The stars of the western crime drama Lawless gathered for a special PEOPLE shoot, right after their big moment on the steps of the Palais de Festivals on May 19.

Shot steps from the Palais at the Baoli Beach Club before their after-party, the cast includes Guy Pearce, Jason Clarke, Shia LaBeouf (who brought his mother as his date), Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hardy and Dane DeHaan.

The close-knit cast toasted each other and Chastain, a red carpet mainstay this year, who was on the cover of French magazine Gala. When Hardy held up the magazine vertically, pretending that Chastain was a centerfold, the group burst out laughing.

Festival veteran Wasikowska says, "It's always so great here. It's like Hollywood on overload!"

Kate Winslet's Life Saved by Mildred Pierce Costar

Kate Winslet's Life Saved by Mildred Pierce Costar Guy Pearce

Guy Pearce is great to work with. In a pinch, he'll even save your life.

Kate Winslet found this out recently while filming Mildred Pierce for HBO. The period piece required Pearce, 43, to drive an unwieldy 1929 Cord automobile with heavy steering and awkward gears. And at one point, with Winslet, 35, in the passenger seat, they had a very close call.

"We'd finished a take, and a van came onto the road that we were on without seeing us," Pearce told PEOPLE at the miniseries' premiere this week in New York. "We both had to sort of swerve to get out of each other's way ... and I thought ... wow!"

POLL: Who Should Play WikiLeaks' Julian Assange in the Movie? | Chris Cooper, Guy Pearce, Julian Assange, Julian Sands, Ralph Fiennes

Who Should Play Julian Assange in the Movie?

Originally posted 03/03/2011 12:05PM

Who has the right mix of roguish bravado to portray Julian Assange on the big screen?

That's the question facing DreamWorks, which is planning a feature film about the controversial WikiLeaks founder, after securing the rights to two books written about him.

No casting decisions have been made yet, but four actors in particular seem like they could pull it off: Chris Cooper, Ralph Fiennes, Guy Pearce and Julian Sands. The first three are well-known stars; Sands is less famous but physically is a dead ringer for Assange.

So, tell us, if you were the casting director …
