Indiana Jones And The Adventure of Archaeology Exhibition

To mark the 30th anniversary of “ Raiders of the Lost Ark ,” a touring exhibition is spotlighting famous props from the Indiana Jones films and putting them side-by-side with real archaeological artifacts. The exhibition, called “ Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology ,” features the Ark of the Covenant from “Raiders” and the Holy Grail from “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” as well as objects from ancient Peru, Egypt and Iraq, all on display in a museum space inspired by Hangar 51 and ancient temples. Lucasfilm teamed with National Geographic and Montreal’s X3 Productions to produce and curate the exhibit, which started its six-year international tour at the Montreal Science Centre and will head overseas next month.

Olivia Wilde Replaces Jennifer Garner In Better Living Through Chemistry

Looks like Jennifer Garner ’s loss is Olivia Wilde ’s gain, as the Cowboys & Aliens actress is replacing the Arthur co-star in the cast of indie comedy drama Better Living Through Chemistry . Garner’s got a good excuse, though: she’s just announced that she’s pregnant with her third child, which will put a bump in her schedule. Now Wilde will feature as the trophy wife who lures a weak-willed, small-town chemist (her Cowboys & Aliens co-star Sam Rockwell ) from his loveless marriage with nights of passion and the pleasures of prescription drugs. But things go haywire when they start planning to kill Wilde’s husband. Michelle Monaghan is also in the cast, as Rockwell’s wife, which makes us question quite why he’d be cheating in the first place. Oh, and Judi Dench is the movie’s narrator. Geoff Moore and David Posamentier, who wrote the script and saw it land squarely on the 2010 Black List, are stepping up to direct. Given the changes in casting (Rockwell is taking

Fox Renews Breaking In For A Second Season

It's official! Fox announced Thursday that Breaking In will be getting 13 episode second season, set to premiere in 2012. And now, the crew of Breaking In is about to pull off the best heist ever: coming back from cancellation. Christian Slater comedy caper will be getting a 13-episode order for this season. That's right, Breaking In might possibly beat the evil cancellation demons for a second time... Back in the spring, Fox announced that it wouldn't be renewing the half-hour comedy which stars Slater, along with Bret Harrison, Michael Rosenbaum and new House gal Odette Annable . But a sliver of hope was given to fans when Fox decided to keep the casts' options in case they decided to give the show another chance. And now it seems that chance is here, because negations are reportedly currently underway to bring Breaking In back to the Fox schedule. Fox had no comment, but we'll be keeping fingers and toes crossed that this deal goes through because we

Here is a stunning photo of Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe from her upcoming film My Week with Marilyn . The film also stars Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Redmayne, Dominic Cooper and Emma Watson . Based on two books by Colin Clark, it depicts the making of the 1957 film The Prince and the Showgirl, which starred Marilyn Monroe and Laurence Olivier.

My Week with Marilyn Synopsis : In the early summer of 1956, 23 year-old Colin Clark, just down from Oxford and determined to make his way in the film business, worked as a lowly assistant on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl , the film that famously united Sir Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe, who was also on honeymoon with her new husband, the playwright Arthur Miller.

Our Idiot Brother Red-Band Trailer FU ABC

Courtesy of moviefone we have the red-band trailer for Our Idiot Brother . Up until now, the trailers and posters for ' Our Idiot Brother ' have made the upcoming comedy seem like a PG-13 affair at best. But now that we've got our hands on the red-band trailer for the movie, there is no doubt in our minds that this one earned its R rating with ease. The film stars Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, and Emily Mortimer . This particular clip even has has a little story behind it. Apparently, ABC refused to air the original 'Our Idiot Brother' trailer, which didn't sit well with the Weinstein Company. Therefore, they decided to cut a much dirtier version for your viewing pleasure. "We'd like to dedicate our new red-band trailer for 'Our Idiot Brother' to the conscientious censors at ABC and their concerned brethren everywhere. Enjoy!!" OUR IDIOT BROTHER opens in theaters everywhere tomorrow. Watch the trailer after the Ju

First Look At Superman's Full Costume & 1st Image Of Faora & Zod

Remember that first, official photo of Henry Cavill as Superman in the upcoming movie Man of Steel ? While it wasn't clear from that shot whether or not Cavill was wearing the traditional red underpants, some new photos seem to have settled the matter. A series of pictures taken on the set and posted at the Man of Steel Facebook page appear to show quite definitively that Cavill is not wearing the red trunks that have been part of Superman's costume since the very beginning. So now we can guess why that initial photo deliberately kept Kal-El's mid-section in the shadows—director Zack Snyder and the film's producers (which include Christopher Nolan) wanted to keep the full costume a mystery and not necessarily set off alarm bells with Superman purists. Of course, it's not just the new movie that's messing with the Man of Steel's iconic outfit: DC Comics has also revealed that Superman's red underwear is going to be a thing of the past when the p

X-Men: First Class Magneto In Drag

Sometimes being an arch-nemesis is a real drag. The clip is from a Japaneses commercial promoting the deleted scenes for the upcoming DVD release of  X-Men: First Class Exhibit A: Consider this deleted scene from X-Men: First Class , included in the DVD out Sept. 9. It all starts innocently enough: Eric Lehnsherr ( Michael Fassbender ) and Charles Xavier ( James McAvoy ) are on a recruiting mission for their new, government-sanctioned mutant strike force. Angel ( Zoe Kravitz ) is working as a stripper, and they want to get her to reveal how her dragonfly tattoos actually emerge from her body to form real wings. Magneto levitated a champagne bucket to show her his power, but Angel never quite got a demonstration of Professor X’s mindbending abilities. Now we see why that was left on the cutting room floor.
