The first photo of Sacha Baron Cohen in his new comedy "Grimsby" has been released... by a Monty Python legend. Eric Idle posted a photo of himself alongside Cohen dressed in his look for the film in which he plays a soccer hooligan who goes on the run with his estranged black-ops agent brother (Mark Strong).

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Just in time for the July 4th holiday, 20th Century Fox has debuted a new TV spot for next week's release of the "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" sequel. Frankly it's the best TV spot I've seen for any film in a long time and well worth watching.

Sex Tape
Cameron Diaz's raunchy new comedy "Sex Tape" will reportedly reveal more of the actress than you've ever seen before. Speaking with Esquire, 41-year-old Diaz says her role required her to bare more than she ever has on screen before: "It's a first for me. But Jason (Segel) gets naked, too. It's just a part of the role. So I did it. I mean you see everything." [Source: Esquire]

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
The first clip is out from the upcoming "Sin City" sequel, this one showcasing the transformation of Jessica Alba's character from pretty stripper to battle scarred avenger.

Back in the 1990s, Steven Spielberg's animation studio Amblimation ("An American Tail: Fievel Goes West") was developing an animated movie based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical "Cats". When the studio shut down in 1997, the project was abandoned.

Nearly two decades on Luc Desmarchelier, who worked in visual development on the film, has posted some of his concept art from the film which was set in London after the Blitz during World War Two. Click Here for the full gallery.
