Spark is a teenage monkey living in an underground bunker on the virtually destroyed planet Bana, alongside his best friends Chunk and Vix - a pig mechanic and a fox warrior respectively. Once upon a time, the planet was an incredible place to live, but with the arrival of the ruthless General Zhong thirteen years ago, it has become a wasteland. It's a dangerous world out there, but Spark wants to go out on missions with the other survivors and prove that he has what it takes to aid them in taking their planet back. But rescuing the Queen and his own parents from Zhong's prison-like rule is much harder than he ever could have anticipated.

In a Hollywood Reporter interview, Timberlake discussed his initial struggles adapting to fatherhood, and why 'NSYNC disintegrated so suddenly all those years ago.
The 36 year old singer became a father in April 2015 to son Silas, whom he shares with wife Jessica Biel. While he loves being a parent, he admitted in a new cover interview for The Hollywood Reporter that it took him several months to adjust to his new role.
“At first, it broke me down,” remembered Timberlake about the weight of responsibility. “Those first eight months felt like those old shows where people are balancing spinning plates on poles — except if you drop one, they die.”
Jessica Biel is desperate to duet with her husband Justin Timberlake on a track in the future.
The 34-year-old actress - who tied the knot to the 35-year-old singer in 2012 and 21-month-old son Silas together - has admitted she is open to embarking on a new career in the music industry and is eager to pen the lyrics to a new track with her spouse and even feature her vocals on the record.
Speaking to InStyle magazine about her future dream, the brunette beauty - who has a background in musical theatre and is a trained vocalist - said: ''Nothing specific, but I think we had such a good time working together, and It was in just the right kind of capacity where we weren't on top of each other, in terms of both of us trying to compete with a particular lane.

Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel were said to have been personally asked by the Hollywood star.
Leonardo Dicaprio has been forced to pull out of hosting a fundraising event for Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton next week. But the Oscar winning actor has managed to find not one, but two A-list replacements, Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel will host a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in place of Leonardo DiCaprio
According to Variety, Timberlake and Biel will now host the event at their home in Los Angeles, after being personally asked by DiCaprio. The actor had to pull out as he was unable to return to Los Angeles from Toronto before Wednesday. Tickets for the lunchtime fundraiser are priced at $33,400 per person.
Biel opened the Au Fudge restaurant in West Hollywood on Friday.

Congratulations to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, who just welcomed their first child - a baby boy, named... wait, we don't want to spoil the surprise, do we? The couple, who announced that they were expecting just a month prior, let us know that the baby was here and he had a name already.
The couple have stuck by each other's side for 8+ years.
They shared the news via People. The website also had the exclusive scoop of the baby name - Silas Randall Timberlake. It's a bit retro and a bit adorable - just like Mr. Timberlake Sr.

Fourth season of 'New Girl' set to feature Jessica Biel as Jess's love rival.
Film actress Jessica Biel is set to make a guest turn in the hit US comedy series 'New Girl' later this year.The show, which stars Zooey Deschanel – The Queen Of All Things Quirky TM - is set to return for its fourth season in September. Biel will play “the hottest scientist in the world”, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and will apparently obstruct Deschanel’s character Jess’s attempts to hook up with a guy at a wedding.

It was a glamorous occasion for female celebrities at the Tiffany & Co 2014 Blue Book Gala held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. 'Homefront' actress Kate Bosworth arrived with her husband Michael Polish and stole the show in a gorgeous pale pink frock teamed with red lipstick and her blonde locks swept to the side.
The actor stars in the new thriller alongside Ben Affleck
Justin Timberlake has entered a whole new stage in his career, for better or worse. Actually, we’re pretty sure it’s for the better that his N-Sync days and frosted tips are behind him. The singer/actor looked dapper as usual alongside wife Jessica Biel at last night’s (Wednesday, 18 September) premiere of Runner Runner.
In a remarkably gender neutral choice, husband and wife sported matching black suits – although no ties to complete Justin’s signature look. Of course, co-star Ben Affleck wasn’t far behind. Timberlake and Affleck seem to have solidified their blossoming bromance with Runner Runner.
The movie tells the story of a broke college student (who can’t relate to that?), who uses his prodigal math skills to predict the algorithms of an online gambling website and make some money to put a dent in his loans. At some point, however, Richie Furst (the writers of Ocean’s Thirteen didn’t try too hard in the naming department this time) discovers an apparent glitch in the system, which systematically robs players of miniscule amounts of money at a time.

The singer didn't let her entourage go hungry during a recent outing in the UK, spending thousands at the chick restaurant chain
Nando's chicken was on the menu for Beyoncé following her performance at V Festival in Hylands Park, UK, as the singer and her entourage left the packed-out festival with a mean hunger to cure. The singer and her pose were in Chelmsford, England, when she decided to put in one heck of an order, spending approximately $2,200 on an array of chicken and sides.

Justin Timberlake appeared on Ellen to promote his new album, but mostly he just gushed about wife Jessica Biel.
Justin Timberlake talked life, love and The 20/20 Experience during his appearance on Ellen last night.
The talk show host snuck up on Timberlake with questions about Jessica Biel, whom Timberlake married last year. But Justin couldn’t have come up with a more perfect answer to induce a collective “aww” from the audience. When asked what the best thing about marrying Biel was, the actor/singer said: "Every once in a while I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn't see me looking and I have this moment when I'm like, 'If you never make a good decision, if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you made one really good decision,'" he said. "It's nice to marry your friend, it's nice to marry your best friend. It suits me."
And if that’s not the cutest thing you’ve heard or seen, the next bit should do it. Ellen gifted Timberlake with a framed photo of him gazing lovingly into her eyes on his last visit to the show. That’s not Jessica’s eyes. It’s Ellen’s. The studio audience erupted with laughter at that point, but Justin said, in his most serious tone possible, that the still would fit nicely in the empty space above his bed. Well, as long as it’s cool with his wife…
'Iron Man 2' star Gwyneth Paltrow, 'Sex and the City' actress Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Biel from 'The Illusionist' were among the stunning arrivals at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball at New York's Rockefeller Center.
Kind of a disappointing showing this week folks, best hold on for those Christmas heartwarmers, or, if you’re one of the 56 people left on the globe that haven’t seen Skyfall, that’s probably still showing…
Hyde Park On Hudson has been touted by many as Bill Murray’s next stab at Oscar success. However, the movie itself has hardly received glowing reviews. Directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill) and also starring Laura Linney and Olivia Williams, Hyde Park on Hudson tells the story of Franklin D Roosevelt and his love affair with his distant cousin, Margaret Stuckley. The ‘action’ takes place over a weekend in 1939, when the King & Queen of England visited upstate New York.
Murray’s performance has been hailed as a masterpiece and there have been mutterings of Oscar contention, but it seems that Murray is a jewel in a pretty shabby crown, here. He may carry the film, but it’s clear that it’s a deadweight. Bill will have to keep his fingers crossed that the Academy award voters can stay awake through the historical drama long enough to appreciate his performance.
Next year’s Sundance Film Festival will reflect an on-going trend in the movie world, for big name actors to seek out challenging and rewarding roles in independent films. The competition line-up for Sundance 2013 has been announced and Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Daniel Radcliffe, Jessica Biel and Kristen Bell are all amongst the big names headlining next year’s festival, which is considered a highlight of the international film festival calendar.
John Cooper, the director of Sundance, told The Hollywood Reporter “It’s a reflection of the landscape… We notice that there's a very, very vital community of actors taking roles in independent films - well-known actors in particular.” There are 27 films in competition at the 2013 festival, which will be screening 113 feature-length movies in total. These were whittled down from 12, 146 submissions – an increase of 429 from last year.
Taking a look at those big names in competition, then; Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara both appear in Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, a story about two outlaws, situated in the hills of Texas. Daniel Radcliffe, meanwhile, continues his attempt to break free of the clutches of Harry Potter, by playing Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, which brings together the great beat poets of the 1940s. Elizabeth Olsen and Jennifer Jason Leigh also star in this movie, centered on David Kammerer’s murder by Lucien Carr. Kristen Bell stars in The Lifeguard and Jessica Biel leads the cast in Emanuel and the Truth about Fishes, a dramatic thriller directed and written by Francesca Gregorini.
'The Illusionist' star Jessica Biel poses for photos as she steps out of her car on arrival at New York studios where she will appear on 'The Late Show with David Letterman'. She is wearing a darkish blue Roland Mouret dress with dark green capped sleeves teamed with a lighter blue pair of shoes by Jimmy Choo.
Some of Hollywood's most established stars - not least the cast themselves - turned out for the premiere of Hitchcockyesterday (November 20) at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California. It's not surprising that such a dazzling array of talent should take to the red carpet, given that the film effectively honours one of the greatest directors of all time in Alfred Hitchcock. Taking center stage were leading ladies Toni Collete, Jessica Biel and, of course,Dame Helen Mirren- the latter extremely enamoured by Biel's gorgeous dress, struggling to keep her hands off it.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have had a hectic couple of weeks since they tied the knot three weeks ago, fortunately for the newlyweds they have finally found some time to put aside for themselves after they were spotted holding hands whilst strolling through New York yesterday (Nov 11).
The good samaritains were among the kind-hearted celebrities on hand to lend their support for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, which ravaged America's east coast late last month. The pair immediately headed to New York after enjoying their honeymoon following their lavish Italian wedding, to get their hands dirty and help out those in need by doling out boxes full of supplies at Far Rockaway, NY over the weekend.
The newly wedded couple soon found space for themselves though and got to enjoy their first moments of matrimonial life on the US land, for seemingly the first time since they tied the knot, enjoying a pleasant stroll around recovering New York.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have now been married for three weeks, and after a day of R&R, the couple jetted off on their honeymoon. Photos and accompanying reports have finally been released about their exotic destination- Africa!
They had managed to keep their wedding fairly under wraps before the event in Italy in October, but plans for the post-nuptials were kept even more private. Neither paparazzi nor journos knew where the couple were off to before they landed. Even Biel's good friend and colleague Beverly Mitchell was in the dark, "None of us know where they went." She said, in the Huffington Post, "She keeps a really good secret! However, unfortunately their highly sought-after privacy was short lived, as the papparazzi found them as they stepped off the plane in Tanzania. According to USA Today they arrived in Africa on October 21st, and made their way to a private reserve in Serengeti Park.
Africa is nothing new to Biel, who climbed Kilimanjaro in 2010, reports US Weekly, in a philanthropic effort to raise awareness for the importance of the global crisis surrounding the lack of safe, clean water. Timberlake was meant to join her but was forced to cancel due to his commitments to The Social Network. Hopefully their honeymoon is far more relaxing than the gruelling trek up a mountain, which is not the tallest mountain in the world, contrary to US Weekly's reports.
The much anticipated Alfred Hitchcock biopic finally hit preview screens this week, and having already been tipped for Oscar success, the performances and subsequent reviews seem to echo that gossip.
Sacha Gervasi has taken the helm of the film, re-writing the script and directing an impressive cast, including Anthony Hopkins as the man himself, Helen Mirren as his wife, plus Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, James DArcy and Danny Huston. The story begins in the wake of the wildly successful North by Northwest, as Hitchcock finds himself at a bit of a dead end for projects. The plot itself mostly revolves around his interesting relationship with his wife, Alma, Hitchcock's love of his blonde leads, and around the creation of his most famous work, Psycho. The Guardian has praised all the performances, particularly Mirren, "she is the film's - hell, both films' - secret heroine. Forget all those blondes - count on the redhead." The Hollywood Reporter has nothing but good words to say for Gervasi, who "displays abundant energy and visual tact at the helm" and desribes the film as a whole as "undeniably lively and provocative"- much like Hitchcock's own work.
Almost any artist, whether a writer, musician, film maker or sculptor, if they make something great it often means their life is interesting. Hitchcock continues to prove this rule, as arguably one of the greatest film makers of all time, his character, relationships and thus his life, make for fascinating viewing, all made possible by an utterly brilliant ensemble to bring life to his life.
Justin Timberlake has expressed his distaste regarding the video made by a friend of his for the singer's wedding which exploited the homeless.
The wedding between Justin Timberlake and bride Jessica Biel should have been one of utter, uninterrupted joy and celebration. However, the release of a video from one of the newly-wed's friends, made to celebrate the nuptials, has become a point of sharp distaste and disgust among the public. In response to the video and the outrage expressed regarding it, Timberlake has released an 'open letter' of apology on his website.
"I'd like to start off by saying that I don't live my life making fun of people... Especially, those who are less fortunate or those in need." He said, "I grew up with a family and community that instilled ideals in me like hard work, honesty and empathy... Growing up in Tennessee, I was always taught that we as people, no matter what your race, sex, or stature may be, are equal. As it pertains to this silly, unsavoury video that was made as a joke and not in any way in mockery: I had no knowledge of its existence. I had absolutely ZERO contribution to it." And ending the letter, he said, "I want to say that, on behalf of my friends, family, and associative knuckleheads, I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video."
The video featured homeless people congratulating them on their wedding, and they were even remunerated for their services. Now, there will be some people who think paying homeless people to toast the wedding of a couple millionaires in Italy is distasteful, and those people would be right. Timberlake may or not agree, but either way, he's said sorry. "I had no knowledge of its existence" and "had absolutely ZERO contribution to it," Timberlake wrote, adding that the video was never shown at the actual wedding. "I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video. Again, it was something that I was not made aware of," wrote Timberlake. "But, I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable."
Timberlake, according to TMZ, went onto say that the people behind the video were "good people" who had a "lapse of judgment," before eventually trying to justify it: "I don't believe it was made to be insensitive," he said. "[But] I think we can all agree that it was distasteful." Ah, Justin, it was all going so well until you tried to justify the making of the it.

Justin Timberlake has issued an open letter of apology after a recent video shown at his and Jessica Biel’s caused discontent on the internet. Well, let’s get that right, he’s saying that it actually WASN’T shown at his wedding, but that he’s apologising for it anyway. Which, well, if it’s all false surely means he shouldn’t have to?
Anyway, the supposed video that may or may not have been shown at Timberlake’s wedding saw a group of homeless people interviewed about JT and Biel by real estate agent Justin Huchel. It was pretty distasteful to be honest, and surprisingly out of character for something related to Timberlake – and as such he’s moved quickly to apologise, also adding that he’s going to make his pal do 100 hours of community service.
In the letter, Timberlake claims that he had no knowledge of the video and no part in its creation. He also put it down to an error of judgement on his friend’s part, though claimed he was still a “good” person. Admitting that the video was distasteful, the Myspace part-owner rounded off by saying “I want to say that, on behalf of my friends, family, and associative knuckleheads, I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video. Again, it was something that I was not made aware of. But, I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable.”
Rumours had been rife about the upcoming nuptials of Timberlake and Biel, who sound more like a 70's crime fighting duo than a A-list couple, but they are an A-list couple and they're getting married soon so we'll shut up. The couple threw a casual pre-wedding party on Wednesday in Puglia, Italy, at the Cala Masciola beach on the Adriatic Sea, as you do. Guests included comedian Andy Samberg, who co-starred with Timberlake in an Emmy-winning "Saturday Night Live" digital short and the film "Friends With Benefits," a romantic comedy. This is the first wedding for singer-actor Timberlake, 31, since his high profile dating relationships with Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz didn't turn into wedding bells. And it's same for actress Biel, 30. They announced their engagement at the beginning of this year.
"Most celebrities do a wedding in their home country first, to make it official, and then they have a symbolic ceremony in Italy afterward, so they file no paperwork in Italy," Italian wedding specialist Diana Sorensen, owner of Sugokuii Events told E! "Personally, with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, I do not feel they will have a legal ceremony in Italy. My feeling is that, like most celebrities, they've already done something in the United States."
Alfred Hitchcock biopic ‘Hitchcock’ is set to be in line for an Oscar this year as Fox Searchlight reveals the 2012 release date.
Fox Searchlight Pictures are known for producing and distributing independent, mainly British films many of which have been successful Oscar winners or nominees including ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, ‘Black Swan’, ‘The Full Monty’, ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ and ‘Juno’. ‘Hitchcock’ could be set to be their latest jewel as the previously expected 2013 release date has been moved to November 23rd 2012 making it a serious contender for an Academy Award this year.
Unlike the actual Alfred Hitchcock movies, which were largely suspense-driven thrillers, the film is comedy drama based on the making of Alfred Hitchcock’s hit 1960 blockbuster ‘Psycho’ and the relationship the director had with his wife Alma Reville. It focuses on the major controversy surrounding the film’s sexual and violent content and Hitchcock’s battle with financing and censorship. It has been adapted by screenwriter John McLaughlin (‘Black Swan’) from Stephen Rebello’s biography ‘Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho’ with Sacha Gervasi (‘Anvil: The Story of Anvil’) in his feature film directorial debut. If this wasn’t enough to make a big impression at The Oscars, then the flick’s all-star cast is bound to be a winner. With Academy Award sensations Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren playing Hitchcock and Alma, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel playing ‘Psycho’ stars Janet Leigh and Vera Miles, the spectacular mix of both American and British actors is sure to appeal to most culturally singular film lovers.
That one good character is Doug, played with real depth by Farrell. After a chemical war has left just two inhabitable spots on earth (Britain and Australia), Doug is working as a robotics engineer and living a quiet life with his wife Lori (Beckinsale). But he keeps dreaming about running for his life with another woman (Biel), so he heads to a Rekall memory-implant centre to clear his mind. Of course he instead opens a can of worms, discovering that he's not who he thinks he is. But what's the truth? And who's side he really working for - the totalitarian chancellor (Cranston) or the violent rebel leader (Nighy)?

As the countdown to 2012 begins, an executive (Swank) is frazzled about a technical glitch in the iconic Time's Square ball-drop. Meanwhile, a courier (Efron) is trying to help a frumpy secretary (Pfeiffer) achieve her dreams. A chef (Heigl) is catering a glittering event while trying to avoid her rock star ex (Bon Jovi), whose back-up singer (Michele) is stuck in a lift with a lovelorn slacker (Kutcher). A mother (Parker) is worried about her teen daughter (Breslin). And a tuxedoed millionaire (Duhamel) is trying to get to an important event in the city.

Valentine's Day in Los Angeles brings a series of romantic crises. A flower seller (Kutcher) has proposed to his less-than-keen girlfriend (Alba), then discovers his best friend's (Garner) boyfriend (Dempsey) is married. A phone-sex operator (Hathaway) is afraid to tell her boyfriend (Grace) what she does for a living. An romance-hating publicist (Biel) is helping her client (Dane) manage a media storm. A group of teens (Swift, Lautner, Roberts and Jenkins) are grappling with chastity. And two strangers (Roberts and Cooper) strike up a conversation on a trans-Atlantic flight.
Continue reading: Valentine's Day Review
The film is a sloppy pastiche of four portraits of depressed souls in dire circumstances. Jessica Biel plays a stripper who leaves sweet phone messages on her comatose young son's hospital room phone. Ick. She is essentially one of those indie-chic characters who talks fast, snorts coke, and talks nonsensical platitudes to herself in a mirror. Ray Liotta is a guy who walks around town in a dirty suit and rides the bus a lot. From what must be intended as a clumsy flashback (hard to tell, since the movie is so stylistically bankrupt), we know that he is dying, so that gives him license to be as morose as possible for the entire movie. Eddie Redmayne is a mortician who can't get a girlfriend so he bonds with dead people. He looks like he's 12 but is intended to be about 30 from the way the film has him act. Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker fills in the final quadrant, playing a character with absolutely no relation to the others, except for that he is depressed and wants to kill himself. Rather, he wants to give someone else $50,000 to shoot him in the heart. Why? Because it's quirky.

So, one day Chuck Levine (Sandler) and Larry Valentine (James) decide to get hitched. The reason is simple: Larry doesn't want to fill-out an insurance form, so he gets Chuck to pose as his "life partner," thus allowing any pension money to go directly to Larry's two kids, a tomboy daughter and a showtune-singing son. Larry still can't get over his saintly wife's death and Chuck has more than likely contracted more STDs than the leather upholstery in Tommy Lee's Jaguar; they're a match made in heaven.

Nicolas Cage plays Cris Johnson, a Las Vegas entertainer disguising his true abilities with a cheesy stage show. FBI Agent Callie Ferris (Julianne Moore) has decided that the best way to stop a smuggled nuclear bomb from detonating somewhere in the U.S. is to use Johnson's talent for prognostication. Never mind the fact that he can only see two minutes into the future, giving her a very brief window in which to act if he were to see the bomb. That's about the level of logic at which this film operates.

It's a cold night in Manhattan when Syd (Chris Evans) decides to attend the going-away party of ex-girlfriend London (Jessica Biel) in the large loft of a friend (Isla Fisher, completely wasted). Before getting to the party, Syd stops to see his bartender friend, Mallory (Joy Bryant), and meets up with Bateman (Jason Statham), a man with a serious amount of cocaine but who refuses to be called a dealer. With Bateman and drugs in tow, Syd hits the party, doing more drugs and doing more alcohol that Hemingway, Carver and Sid Vicious combined. Bateman and Syd hole up in the bathroom talking about everything from S&M to the Almighty, and eventually Syd gets up the guts to talk to London.

Crowe's uncanny knack for turning up the volume has allowed countless scenes to soar to their potential. One problem nagging Elizabethtown, Crowe's most awkward project to date, is that the director is obligated to crank the knob again and again to overcome bland performances and missed emotional connections. He has assembled another astonishing collection of inspirational rock tracks, but for the first time the soundtrack outshines the accompanying movie by a long shot.
Continue reading: Elizabethtown Review
Like an episode of MTV's barely-legal late-night dorm life soap "Undressed," with 20 times the creativity but without any more substance, "The Rules of Attraction" is a stylish, glib, endemically energetic diversion that's indulgently entertaining but could have and should have been deeper.
Enthusiastically adapted by Roger Avery (co-writer of "Pulp Fiction" and writer-director of "Killing Zoe") from the whimsically subversive novel by Bret Easton Ellis, it's a black comedy about the feral underbelly of modern campus life, full of cinematic invention but narrative superficiality.
Populated by teen-TV lightweight types trying to gain edgy credibility, "Rules" stars James Van Der Beek ("Dawson's Creek") in the movie's most resonant performance as antihero Sean Bateman, a deviant college cool-jerk -- who, for the trivia-minded, is the younger brother of the title character in Ellis's "American Psycho."
Continue reading: The Rules Of Attraction Review
"Cellular" has all the earmarks of a genuinely smart thriller rewritten by a studio-lapdog script doctor who was told it didn't have enough car chases and comic relief.
As originally conceived by Larry Cohen ("Phone Booth"), the film makes cunning use of the titular technology in its plot that follows an aimless beach dude (utterly bland buff-boy Chris Evans) whose cell phone is on the receiving end of a desperate call for help from a kidnapped woman (Kim Basinger). By tap-tap-tapping together the wires of a smashed old rotary phone, she's managed to dial his number at random from the attic where she's being held.
Disbelieving at first, Evans ("Not Another Teen Movie") is soon robbing a cell phone store for a charger (his battery is low) and stealing cars to drive like Andretti through downtown Los Angeles, trying to beat the bad guys to Basinger's son and husband (it's him they're really after) so he can save the day.
Continue reading: Cellular Review
A gratuitous wise-cracking sidekick and a tummy-baring, tight-top-wearing eye-candy vampire hunter have been added to the cast of the sequel "Blade: Trinity," but it's the gal (Jessica Biel) who gets most of the laughs, albeit unintentionally, with her lethargic, ludicrously inept kung-fu fighting.
Playing the hitherto unknown hottie daughter of Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) -- that crusty veteran of the underground vampire wars who is mentor to the titular half-vamp Wesley Snipes in all three "Blade" pictures -- Biel can't swing a convincing punch or kick to save her life.
But giving Biel a run for her money as the movie's most absurd character is ironic indie-flick darling Parker Posey, disastrously cast against type as the leader of yet another tiresome uber-Goth vampire faction that pouts around in skyscraper hideouts when they're not busy reviving their millennia-old master.
