Much like the brave but ultimately doomed Spartan soldiers of "300," Eva Green might have been up against insurmountable odds in her role as Artemisia in "300: Rise of an Empire," Noam Murro's sequel to Zack Snyder's 2007 hit. Film critics agree that Green's performance as the villainess Artemisia is the best part of the sword-and-sandal spectacle, but they said even she can't save it from mediocrity. The Times' Betsy Sharkey wrote , "The one to watch is Artemisia, and not just because Green gets the best costumes -- leather and chainmail has rarely been as fetching -- but because her character is as tactical a warrior as Themistokles [ Sullivan Stapleton,  the movie's hero]

"Dark Shadows,"which hit theaters on Friday, not only revives long-dormant vampire Barnabas Collins, it also brings back some giggle- and cringe-inducing fashions of the early 1970s. Leisure suits. Mirrored aviator sunglasses. Bell-bottoms, chunky sweaters, macramé jewelry. These all contrast with the stand-up collars, cravats and capes worn by Johnny Depp as Collins. Costume designer Colleen Atwood was more than up to the challenge after numerous previous collaborations with director Tim Burton (her efforts for the director's"Alice in Wonderland" earned her a 2010 Academy Award)

Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Films has produced just one movie in the last 15 years ("The Great Debaters"), and Winfrey herself has starred in just one film of her own ("Lee Daniels' The Butler). But Harpo on Tuesday made a big move on the development front, acquiring the film rights to Sue Monk Kidd's  bestseller “The Invention of Wings.” Kidd's slavery-era novel looks at the contrasting stories of a preteen abolitionist and the slave she is given, following the two as they and the world around them changes over the next three decades.

Insisting it's all in fun to encourage fashion consciousness, Blackwell heaped venom on Beckham.
