Tom Hardy is taking Method acting to a whole new level — and by "whole new level" we mean raiding Elton John's closet.
The 36-year-old "Dark Knight Rises" and "Inception" star will play as the music icon in the upcoming biopic, "Rocketman," and as part of his preparation, he's been wearing the singer's actual clothes. He even asked to borrow Elton's watch.

If you thought Ben Affleck might wriggle out of his Batman role, think again.
Internet backlash or no, Affleck is all in — in more ways than one — as he has stepped inside his new Batsuit for the upcoming "Batman vs. Superman" movie.
One hardcore comic book fan has born witness: writer-director-megageek Kevin Smith.
"I saw the Batman costume," Smith divulged on his own Babble On podcast, explaining that he saw a picture of Affleck in his costume for the upcoming batflick. "I don't want to give anything away 'cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this: I instantly bear hugged [director Zack Snyder]."

is what happens when a flash mob stages the famous moaning scene from the 1989 romantic comedy "When Harry Met Sally..."
A chorus of several groaning women infiltrated the very deli where Meg Ryan first verbally mimicked bedroom ecstasy nearly 25 years ago. And yeah, these ladies did their own version of Ryan's moans, to the surprise and delight of surrounding restaurant patrons and employees.
Don't worry, these women are qualified for the job — they're members of the NYC-based "prank collective" Improv Everywhere.
We'll have what they're having.

See the stars turn out for the LIVE Los Angeles red carpet premiere of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' on Nov. 18 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, only on Yahoo Movies: catchingfire.yahoo.com
For those who are planning on seeing "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" when it opens next week (and that's probably about 98.9 percent of you), you may notice at least one character that's been recast: Buttercup the cat.
The pet of Primrose Everdeen (Willow Shields) made for a point of mild controversy in the first "Hunger Games" movie when it was revealed that director Gary Ross (or at least the casting director in charge of animals) had gone with a black-and-white cat rather than the yellow-coated feline described in Suzanne Collins's novel. Fans can stop hissing now, as that kitty's been fired and Buttercup is now portrayed by a more accurate furry thespian.

Ever wonder which "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” cast member peed in their wetsuit the most while filming in the water? Or which guy was most "bromantically involved" on set with Josh Hutcherson? Now you can find out from the stars themselves.
Yahoo Movies scored an early sit-down with "Catching Fire" cast members Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Jena Malone, and Sam Claflin for a little get-to-know-you game we call “Co-Star Connections.”

Sacha Baron Cohen isn't known for his tact (remember when he sat on Eminem's face at the MTV Movie Awards … or when he Bisquick-bombed Ryan Seacrest at the Oscars?), but the star took his antics to a whole new level at the Britannia Awards on Saturday.
The "Borat" actor was there to receive the prestigious Charlie Chaplin award, which honors a comedic talent. Presenting the award to the star was a woman identified as 87-year-old Grace Collington, Charlie Chaplin's oldest living co-star. Grace entered the stage in a wheelchair as Salma Hayek told the audience Grace had starred with Chaplin in the silent film "City Lights" in 1931, when she was only 5. As the elderly actress handed Sacha Charlie's cane from "City Lights," she cooed, "This is for you."

WARNING: SPOILERS FOR 'THOR: THE DARK WORLD' BELOW
If you stuck around for the credits of "Thor: The Dark World" -- and it's a Marvel movie, so you should know by now that you have to stay in your seat to the very end -- you saw a scene pop up in the middle that looked like it could be from another movie. And that's because it is (sort of).
In the scene, the Asgardian warriors Sif (Jaimie Alexander) and Volstagg (Ray Stevenson) step cautiously through a room filled with large glass display cases containing alien lifeforms and artifacts. They carry a box emitting a faint red glow. Apparently they retrieved the Aether from the dark world of Svartalfheim, and as said in the beginning of the film, it cannot be destroyed, only hidden. They are then introduced to the white-haired Taneleer Tivan, better known as The Collector, played by Benicio Del Toro (who joins Natalie Portman, Tommy Lee Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Bridges in the ranks of Oscar-winning actors who appear in Marvel films).

Don't cry for George Clooney! After skipping several promotional opportunities with his "Gravity" co-star Sandra Bullock, the single silver fox, 52, hit the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Britannia Awards on Saturday, Nov. 9, with another Hollywood bombshell and close friend – Julia Roberts. The duo, who last appeared together in "Ocean's Twelve," spent the evening laughing, sharing photos, and chatting up fellow Hollywood A-listers like Sean Penn.
"The Monuments Men" star, who split from girlfriend Stacy Keibler in July and has been rumored to be romancing Monika Jakisic and Amal Alamudd, got plenty of attention from the bespectacled Roberts, who kept a tight hold on her charming pal and at one point held his hand.
Perhaps the leading lady was just buttering Clooney up before taking a couple cracks at him as she presented him with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.

It was Superman Saturday as filmmaker and longtime comic book aficionado Kevin Smith hosted the "Man of Steel" Fan Event — which streamed live right here on Yahoo Movies — in anticipation of the summer blockbuster's imminent Blu-ray and DVD release. While not much was revealed about any future cinematic adventures of the Man of Tomorrow (no real juicy "Batman vs. Superman" scoops, unfortunately), the event did offer some buzz-worthy tidbits about the somewhat controversial superhero extravaganza that's had some fans in an uproar over its supposedly un-Superman-ish elements.
The "Clerks" director, sporting his trademark hockey jersey reworked with the "Man of Steel" logo, kept things fun and lively as he moderated a Q&A with director Zack Snyder and actress Amy Adams, with the Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill, being "beamed in from the Fortress of Solitude" (Smith's affectionate term for London). Fans got to ask questions via video feed or Twitter, and here's the news that's fit for a special edition of the Daily Planet.
