Sandra Bullock

When Sandra Bullock’s home was invaded last month, the star had a narrow brush, but stayed safe by locking herself in the bedroom. It turns out that she came closer to danger than we thought – definitely too close for comfort, as she was separated from her alleged stalker by just one door.

There is more to the story. Plenty of chilling details of Bullock’s encounter have been outlined in the police’s search warrant, recently obtained by TMZ. According to Bullock’s account, on the night of the encounter, at around 1AM, she heard a noise coming from inside the house. Doing the sensible thing, the actress went over to close and lock the bedroom door. Which she did, but not before she saw her stalker, identified as 34-year-old Joshua Corbett, standing in the hallway in his dark getup.

Celebrity Break-Ins And Crazed Fans: When Fans Break Into Celebrity Homes


Sandra Bullock Queen Elizabeth II Kate Moss Sean Combs Britney Spears Miley Cyrus Joss Stone Rihanna

Oscar-winning Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock has just recently discovered how far some fans will go to come into contact with their idols as a man broke into her Beverly Hills home in the early hours on Tuesday. Since being arrested, the man who has been identified as Joshua Corbett who is aged 39 and resides in the San Fernando valley, Los Angeles.

Sandra Bullock At The DGA AwardsA man broke into Bullock's Beverly Hills home while she was inside.

Despite the apparent exclusivity and subsequent security that Beverly Hills affords inhabitants, Bullock’s run-in with the obsessive fan proves that they will often go to ridiculous measures in order to gain recognition from the subject of their adoration. It also presents a worrying security concern as a lapse in mental health often fuels these celebrity obsessions. Most famously, John Hinckley Jr’s assassination attempt on then President, Ronald Raegan, was seen by Hinckley as a way of courting the attention of actress Jodie Foster. But to have a fan invade one’s personal space and most intimate of dwellings is a unsettling notion for most people, never mind those of the celebrity calibre. Here are a selection of unfortunate celebs who’ve been subject to break-ins, robberies and warped fans who got a little too close for comfort.

'Gravity' Wins Trailer Of The Year At The Golden Trailer Awards


Sandra Bullock George Clooney

Gravity has won a Golden Trailer award for the Trailer of the Year. The sci-fi film was voted the best trailer out a wide variety of films nominated for the various Golden Trailer awards. Gravity's trailer also won the award for Best Thriller Trailer. 

Gravity
Gravity won the Golden Trailer award for Trailer of the Year.

The trailer, entitled Detached, depicts Sandra Bullock and George floating through space, before Bullock crucially loses hold of a life line whilst on a mission outside the space station. The trailer, much like the film, appears to be wonderfully simplistic with the action taking place entirely in space. However, it's certainly a breath-taking trailer with the drama evidently playing out between Sandra Bullock's and George Clooney's characters.

A new video has been posted online that makes us think twice about space disaster thriller Gravity.

From 'Gravity' To Barkhad Abdi - Where The Baftas 2014 Got It Wrong


Chiwetel Ejiofor Steve McQueen Lupita Nyong'o Alfonso Cuaron Sandra Bullock BAFTA Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences

The Baftas delivered on certain promises, collating some of the world’s biggest stars and funneling them down a red carpet, giving a select few the chance to present an award, and, creating talking points as the perennial battle between who should have won and who did win continued to flare.

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael FassbenderChiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender in 12 Years a Slave

Gravity was the night’s big success story as it was when it debuted at Venice all those months ago. The case for the film’s British credentials were never in doubt – BAFTA awards home soil movies and, given that the space thriller’s special effects were delivered by a British team in England, Gravity’s passport is a U.K one.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean the coveted Best Director nod should have gone Alfonso Cuaron’s way. Despite the pure, exhilarating brand of entertainment delivered – almost old-school Hollywood – it’s hard to look past Steve McQueen for his work on 12 Years a Slave when looking for someone more deserved of individual recognition.

Yes, 12 Years reeled in two magnificent awards: that of Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor and Best Film. Despite these high-profile gongs, though, there were other categories in which the slave drama missed out on, and almost certainly didn’t deserve to.

The supporting actor categories leap out as key pieces of evidence in the case of 12 Years a Slave. Barkhad Abdhi’s ascension this past 12 months has been a joy to watch, and his performance in Captain Phillips was touching and terrifying in equal measure. But he wasn’t better than Michael Fassbender as Edwin Epps – the evil plantation owner with a scary infatuation with Patsy, played majestically by Lupita Nyong’o.

And, like a seasoned radio professional, that neat segway leads me on to the Best Supporting Actress win for Jennifer Lawrence, which was – despite her current popularity and GIF-worthyness – a ridiculous decision. To put her role in American Hustle above Nyong’o’s in 12 Years was a travesty; to put it above newcomer Nyong’o and Sally Hawkins’ turn in Blue Jasmine is nothing short of wrong.

Plot Twist: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Tops Forbes Highest Grossing Actors List


Dwayne Johnson Robert Downey Jr Steve Carell Sandra Bullock Jennifer Lawrence

Let’s talk about how Dwayne Johnson was named the highest grossing actor of 2013. No seriously, you did not misread that. Thanks to profits from the incredibly successful Fast & Furious 6, The Rock has topped Forbes’ list of biggest earners for this year with his films making $1.3 bn this year. That’s cool, since Johnson seems like a pretty chilled and hardworking guy, etc.

Dwayne Johnson, Superstars for Sandy
That is what you would call a $1.3 billion smile.

But what about Robert Downey Jr. or F&F co-stars like Vin Diesel? Surely the man who starred in the highest grossing film of 2013 (Iron Man 3, in case you’ve spent most of this year in a cave with no wi-fi) must be somewhere around the top? That he is, in fact Downey took second place. This maybe because, while Iron Man 3 was a huge success at the box office, it was the actor’s only film this year, while Johnson starred in four, including blockbuster G.I. Joe: Retaliation and of course Fast & Furious 6.

Joaquin Phoenix Sandra Bullock George Clooney Bruce Dern Alfonso Cuaron

We normally look at the precursory awards in the lead up to the Oscars as a bellwether for Academy predictions, but this year’s gongs have gone to a varied set of recipients, giving us no indication as to which direction the golden statuettes will be heading come March 2014.

Joaquin Phoenix in HerJoaquin Phoenix in Her

And it appears as though The Los Angeles Film Critics Association are just as muddled with their hypothesis - they couldn’t split the difference between Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and Spike Jonez’s latest effort, Her. The first is an epic journey through space with incredible visuals, while the second is a futuristic love story starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, but they both received the top prize from the LAFCA last night (Sunday 9, December).

Friday Question: Will The George Clooney/Sandra Bullock Banter Ever Relent?


George Clooney Sandra Bullock

George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are both single, both similar ages and have been working together recently in Gravity. The long-time friends are have been consistently rumored to be romantically involved, but they don’t exactly help themselves by constantly using the media as a conduit for their flirting.

George ClooneyGeorge Clooney has teased the press about his feelings towards Bullock

The classroom dalliance even wormed its way into Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity script, as the ever-charming Clooney plays the experienced, yarn-spinning astronaut with ease. And, responding to Bullock’s playful claim that Clooney’s “not everyone's cup of tea,” the silver-haired icon decided to divulge something everyone knows isn’t true but secretly hopes is.

Today's The Day - UK Audiences Finally Get To Enjoy Alfonso Cuaron's Head-Spinning 'Gravity'


Sandra Bullock George Clooney Alfonso Cuaron

Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity is already an established hit in the US, but tonight sees the film’s premiere in the UK. Expectations are high. Cuaron’s deep space thrill ride has gotten mixed reviews in terms of story and acting – while Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are both talented performers, carrying out a movie with just two characters is a difficult feat. But it is in the end the film’s visual landscape and special effects that have attracted the attention of both critics and fans across the land (the land in this case being the US.)

George Clooney, Gravity Still
Opinions on Clooney's performance are contorversial.

Still, there is something to be said about the plot, which sees Bullock as a medical engineer and Clooney as an astronaut on his final mission, team up to face a crisis, which threatens to leave them adrift in space. Several critics have praised the film’s frantic story, which, coupled with the dizzying visuals is enough to leave a lasting impression on even the toughest of viewers. The Independents Geoffrey Macnab refers to the plot as “pared down and primal,” which sounds like a particularly apt description.

Is 'Gravity' Even That Good? Why You Might Not Leave The Cinema Happy


Sandra Bullock George Clooney Alfonso Cuaron

For all the hyperbole, Gravity certainly has a lot to live up to. And the first thing to say is that, visually, the film is as stunning as people are saying. But it’s not the perfect movie the critics have built it up to be. Not by a long shot. Second thing to say is that this article is full of spoilers.

Gravity above earthGravity looks beautiful, but the style outweighs the substance

So you’ve got Sandra Bullock’s Dr. Ryan Stone. She’s got a boy’s name – it’s mentioned in the film, but this is the kind of vapid characterization applied to Cuaron’s space thriller in general. Clooney’s Matt is supposed to be charming – his in-joke with Houston, that he tells a lot of stories, brought about a few chuckles – but he’s ultimately no one to really care about. His death – we told you there would be spoilers – felt about as real as his return. And thank god his return wasn’t real.

Gravity Review


Excellent

More like a 91-minute thrill-ride than an astronaut adventure movie, this tour de force throws us out into space without a safety line then thrills us with a series of near misses that take our breath away. Along the way, Sandra Bullock gets to deliver one of her best-ever performances while filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron wows us with his seamless technical wizardry. So even if the plot feels naggingly implausible, we hang on for dear life.

It begins during a Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Telescope with the cheeky team leader Kowalski (Clooney) and nervous rookie Dr Stone (Bullock). Then after the Russians destroy a distant satellite, the field of debris gathers momentum and knocks out communications before sweeping Kowalski and Stone away from the shuttle and the rest of the crew. Tethered together, they decide to make their way to the International Space Station for help. But they only have 90 minutes before they intersect with the debris storm again. And both power and oxygen are running out.

Earth looks so beautiful floating just below them that we are continually taken aback by the fact that this is essentially a horror movie set in the silent weightlessness of space. Every sequence is carefully staged to ratchet up the suspense, which sometimes begins to feel a little overwrought as it continually comes down to another last-gasp moment. But Bullock plays this especially well, letting us identify with her panic and tenacity. By contrast, Clooney is sarcastic and comical, cheering her up with ridiculous anecdotes as he tries to spark her survival instinct.

Katy Perry
The super successful Katy Perry is the favorite in several musical categories.

'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa' Finally Topples 'Gravity' From The Top Of The US Box Office


Johnny Knoxville Sandra Bullock George Clooney Tom Hanks Michael Fassbender Brad Pitt Javier Bardem Ridley Scott

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is this weeks number one movie at the box office, ousting the mega-successful Gravity from the top spot after a three week stay. The Johnny Knoxville-starring prank fest more than doubled its estimated cost of $15 million in the first weekend alone, amassing an impressive estimate of $32 million since it was released last week.

Bad Grandpa
Bad Grandpa has topped the US box office at the first attempt

Exceeding expectations by scoring more than $30 mil. at the box office, Bad Grandpa comfortably came in first place, averaging just short of $10,000 at each cinema it opened at across America. The fourth feature length outing from the Jackass team is now the second most successful of the bunch, just about tying with the first movie and coming some way off the estimated $50 mil. made by Jackass 3-D. Box office estimates indicate that the film should end its domestic run with about $75 million.

'Jackass Present: Bad Grandpa' Looks Like The Early Favourite To Top Weekend Box Office


Johnny Knoxville Sandra Bullock George Clooney Paul Greengrass Tom Hanks Brad Pitt Ridley Scott Michael Fassbender Javier Bardem Cameron Diaz

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is predicted to earn close to $30 million at the box office in it's opening weekend, according to Deadline, making it the most likely candidate to finish at the top of the box office come the end of the week. This means that after three weeks of dominating the US box office, Gravity may finally be replaced as America's favourite movie at cinemas.

Bad Grandpa
Bad Grandpa should be an easy weekend winner

Depending on what side of the $30 mil. mark it lands on, the film can become either the third or fourth most successful R-rated film of the year in terms of opening box office revenue. Should the film exceed expectations even further, it could potentially place even higher. The film already made an estimated $11 - 12 mil. on the opening day of the weekend - Friday, 25 October - and could be well on its way to exceeding the $30 mil. mark should the numbers continue to add up. Not bad for a film that only cost $15 million to make.

'The Fifth Estate Bombs' - Cumberbatch Can't Save WikiLeaks Movie From Failure


Benedict Cumberbatch Daniel Bruhl Sandra Bullock George Clooney

Dreamworks and Touchstone could have been forgiven for being confident in their film, The Fifth Estate. They secured Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Bruhl, an intriguing story with infinite press, and only spend $28m putting the whole thing together.

Financially, things were looking good, even if the reviews were worryingly negative. But it looks as though the critical mauling taken by the Wikileaks drama deeply affected those thinking of seeing it. Opening this weekend (18-20 Oct), The Fifth Estate grabbed a measly $1.7m – according to Box Office Mojo – putting it 8th in the top 10.
