He Could Get It… Henry Cavill

GET THEE BEHIND ME, SATAN

And get thee in front of me, Henry Cavill, cos you’se a banger.

Oh holy hell, Henry Cavill.  I could write poetry about you.  I would tear down buildings if you asked me to, I would tear them the hell down RIGHT NOW.  It’s all for you, Damien Henry.

Henry-Cavill-Shows-Off-Body-Worthy-of-Man-of-Steel-2

Henry’s due to grace the big screen this summer as Clark Kent/Superman in Man of Steel – with Nolan producing, you know there’ll be plenty of opportunities for a brooding, troubled hero to strike brave, iconic poses, but I’m reminded of my comic-book-expert brother’s comments when we first saw the trailers (at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, no less).  I’m not using his exact words, but he didn’t think the whole dark, gritty Superman was right – Superman was meant to be a light (I think that’s what he said, anyway).  I wrote a little bit about Superman a while back for a Superhero Saturday post, and going through the list of actors who have played Superman, its safe to say that “All-American good looks” is an asterisked box that must be ticked during the casting for the role.
So back to Henry.  OH GOD. He’s got those angelic big blue eyes, a jaw so strong it could open the most tightly closed jar, and all of this in proportions that would make Fibonacci cry with joy.   And then take into account that he had to get stacked the hell up in order to fit into…that…suit….

Seriously, I know Lois Lane is supposed to be ignorant and not realise that Clark Kent is just Superman in a pair of specs, but there could never be any mistaking the fineness of Henry Cavill.  And add to all this the fact that he’s the ultimate good guy… I’m properly in love.

Happy Nolan Day!

Today’s episode sees Nolan make an unlikely team-up with Aidan ‘Headlock’ Mathis, and they both seem to have gone for the ‘all-black everything’ look:

hnd

Just when I thought nothing could match the awesomeness of his whale print trousers, Mr. Ross decides to bust out these checked beauties (which aren’t black, I know, but they’re still cool). He’s also wearing a shirt in a different pattern, but I quite like the whole clashing patterns look. And of course, no Nolan look would be complete without a pocket square.

I must say though I’m really not feeling his hair here, maybe because it’s too long at the sides. I prefer it a little shorter.

And another thought: is Aidan showing Nolan part of his sniper rifle collection in this picture, or are they finna bust a cap in somebody’s you-know-what?

Episode 17 (‘Victory’) is on tonight at 9pm on E4.

P.S. If you love all of the fabulous outfits just as much as we do, here’s a nice little article from Revenge‘s costume designer Jill Ohanneson about the show’s couture clothing (courtesy of Sophia): http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/fash-track/revenge-designer-jill-ohanneson-snagging-432470

He Could Get It…John Krasinski

John HCGI

WHY? UNF, you guyz. There’s something about that all-American cheesecake smile of his and the way he looks like he’s stepped out from the pages of E.L. James’ next depraved fanfiction best-selling literary novella.

John SEEMS like butter-wouldn’t-melt on the surface, but I reckon there’s a SKIPLOAD of butter there to mask over all that RED-BLOODEDNESS and that’s the appeal. LOOK AT THAT FACE, FFS – his skin probably tastes like Haribo (but not the liquorice wheels. No one needs that mess).

He’s sexy in a “I’ll help your mum with the weekly shop…but also I know I look good wet” kind of way. Know what I mean?

Final, less shallow thought – he writes (very well) and if you haven’t seen him in Promised Land; do so immediately.

Red Carpet Watch: ‘Iron Man 3’ Hollywood Premiere

This was the big premiere. The earlier Iron Man 3 premieres looked a bit half-hearted when you see the crowd that attended the Los Angeles one. So let’s get started:

Jaimie Alexander

Jaimie Alexander (Sif in Thor and Thor: The Dark World) wearing Marc Bouwer. I love the colour of this dress – I’m not sure why I like yellow so much but I do. And the simple shape works beautifully for Alexander. The one extravagance on this dress is the embellished neckline with a cut-out. It’s demure and sexy at the same time.

Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey

Susan Downey and Robert Downey Jr. I love Susan’s dress and is it me or has Downey got a coordinated pocket square? Super cute. I love his three-piece suit but it’s still worn with typical Downey style – loose tie, unbuttoned shirt collar and trainers. The white is just too much for me. I’m sorry. (Maybe it’s the lifts in them too…)

Sebastian Stan

Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes in Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier) wearing John Varvatos. Very laid-back look. I’m not sure if this is a good or bad thing though. The most disappointing aspect is his hair. This makes no sense for Bucky…

Rebecca Hall

Rebecca Hall wearing Prada. I can’t bring myself to a decision as to whether this is a great dress or not…I think I like aspects of it. I definitely don’t like the shoes though.

Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky

Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth both look great – similar styles to previous premiere appearances. Hiddleston wearing a grey suit with sharp lines (and a pocket square) and Hemsworth wearing a blue suit in a more relaxed way.

Cobie Smulders

Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill in Avengers Assemble) wearing Halston. I really like the simple style of this dress. And it’s red. We know how I love red. The relaxed seventies vibe of the dress is also played up and I love this.

Emily VanCamp

Emily VanCamp (Agent 13/Sharon Carter? in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) wearing Temperley London. I really like the shoes here – they have a total Deco style about them and I love everything and anything Art Deco-y. I’m less of a fan of the dress. I’m not sure why. I like the nude-y tone of it and the gold accents coordinated with the shoes but…I think it needs something more. Maybe it’s too simple a shape for me.

Kat Dennings

Kat Dennings (Darcy in Thor and Thor: The Dark World) wearing Dolce & Gabbana). There is a lot going on in this dress but somehow, it works. I love it. Saying that, I really don’t like the shoes. Really don’t. Loving the bright pink lips though so I’m going to concentrate on the good aspects.

Zachary Levi

Zachary Levi (Fandral in Thor: The Dark World) wearing Reiss. If we’re ticking boxes here we’ve got three-piece, pocket square and not black. The blue is pretty bright but it works. I really like it. It fits perfectly and the beige tie accent and brown shoes are great. I’m having fewer problems with Fandral’s re-casting now.

Don Cheadle

Don Cheadle wearing a sharp three-piece suit. The tie is a little too wide for my liking but that’s nearly too petty for words. It’s a good suit if not maybe a little wide…

Hayley Atwell

Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier) wearing a Naven blouse (confirming that she’s not wearing a dress). I love the tuxedo jacket. Love it. I always love a tuxedo jacket. The skirt is a pencil skirt with a double-ended zip down the left side. This is amazing. The issue is the blouse. It’s…just a little odd. And I think it might be on the  wrong side of sexy – just a bit too much emphasis on Atwell’s…assets. The necklace is pretty badass though. But I still love her.

Sir Ben Kingsley

Sir Ben Kingsley wearing a very simple black suit, black shirt combination. The yellow and black tie just adds some colour to brighten and lift the outfit.

Guy Pearce

Guy Pearce wearing Dolce & Gabbana. Simple, well-cut, relaxed. Not much to talk about. It’s a good look (and very different from his costume as Aldrich Killian).

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow wearing Antonio Beradi. At first glance, mostly from this photo, the dress looks very impressive. Some interesting panels and sheer sections. And then there’s this photo. Now I have a very different impression of the dress. And it’s not an altogether great one…

Eight bloody brilliant things about the Thor: The Dark World trailer

The teaser trailer for Thor: The Dark World is here and the ladies of DTSFT have been getting pretty moist about it. Here are eight reasons why.

1)   Floating fire truck

This will never not be cool. It’s a simple scene that looks not unlike a Plan B video, but it’s the simplicity that makes it excellent. A ginormous truck, lifted from the ground as easily as a golf ball by some unknown, possibly malevolent force. Ten seconds in and we’re already intrigued.

2)  Mountain/space ship thingy destroys a part of London

In a shot not unlike the spaceship carnage in the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer, something that looks like a bit of mountain cleaves the ground in two like a knife through cottage cheese. Ominous and exciting.

3) The dude arrives

A pair of boots, a bit of breeze, and suddenly he’s there. Thor. In all his splendour and leather and metal and luxurious hair. He looks like he means business – like he’s going to kiss you deeply then elbow a bad guy in the neck FOR YOUR HONOUR. We got chills.

4) “You want me to put the hammer down?”

Thor is a man of action, don’t forget; and he gets plenty of it it seems. Who else could appear out of a fucking cloud and chin you before his feet hit the ground?

5) Tough mama

Rene Russo is back as Thor’s mother Frigga, and from the looks of things she’ll be kicking some behind. And you thought Midgardian mothers were hardnuts.

6) Sacrifices

Like every good superhero movie (usually the by the third film) the hero has to make some difficult choices between the way of the cape and the way of his heart. Whereas Batman and Iron Man waited until the last bit of the trilogy, Thor’s hitting us with both barrels RIGHT DAMN NOW. And we don’t mind one bit.

7) Malekith

Spooky tin opener Malekith

Spooky tin opener Malekith

Getting a first look at this film’s Big Bad is a treat, so here’s Malekith, looking like a spooky elf. Or a tin opener.

8) LOKI. LOKI ALL DAY.

In an exchange that looks a bit Silence of the Lambs, Thor goes to Loki for help. Tom Hiddleston ticks every DTSFT box, so he could have been sat cross-legged eating a Muller Rice without saying a word and we’d have loved it. “When do we start”? ANYTIME YOU LIKE, HIDDLESTON.

Enough talk. Watch the trailer below:

Happy Nolan Day!

It’s back back BACK!

First off, I am sooooooooo sorry that you guys haven’t been getting your weekly dose of Happy Nolan Day for a while, I’ve been having some trouble getting pictures for each episode, not to mention work stuff getting in the way *sigh*. But now that I’ve managed to lay my hands on some, it’s back up and running!

I hope you’ve been keeping up with the series so far though, and I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s been pretty darn good! *potential spoiler coming up* And what about that shocking twist eh? I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I saw that.

Now Emily and friends are going through the aftermath, and of course, Nolan’s doing it in style:

hnd1

I never thought black and brown would go well together, but he’s managed to pull it off here. I also think the look has a ‘baroque’ feel which I really like, could be the tie and printed shirt. One qualm I do have though is the way he’s tied the tie around the collar of the shirt. Looks a bit turtleneck-y, which I’m not too keen on.

Here’s the outfit from a different angle, where our Nolan appears to be having a lover’s tiff argument with Jack. But what about? We’ll have to wait and see.

Episode 16 (‘Illumination’) is on tonight at 9pm on E4.

S’good to be back!

He Could Get It…Vincent Cassel

Right, first of all, let me get this straight – I’m not what you’d call a fan of the French.  Before you get all pissy, that doesn’t include French Canadians.  I love me some French Canadians, because they’re a version of Canadians, and Canadians are the balls.

But something went wrong somewhere along the way.  Canada created Justin Bieber; a collective shudder was felt round the world, as we wondered how such a thing could have happened.  For some reason, France stepped up to the plate, “We ‘ave got zis, non?” and reminded the world that this guy exists:

vincent-cassel_192395

Vincent Cassel, awww get it.  And before you start to disagree, just shut up for a minute ‘cos you’re wrong. Aside from the mad acting skills (especially when it’s not in his native language), Cassel is worth the hass…el.  Ahem.  Look, he’s about 7 feet tall, with eyes that could cut through you like a raggedy toenail through tights, and best of all he looks like he’s never given a good god damn about anything in his entire life apart from sex and cigarettes – he is French, after all.  So laid back, it’s unreal.  In Trance, when he casually answers the door buck-ass naked, I knew I’d never see the world in the same light ever again.  And then to make matters worse, this picture was presented to the world.

I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS, CASSEL.
