The stunning Swede returned to her Canadian roots - she was raised in Toronto - for the upcoming dark comedy Cottage Country, filmed in the typically picturesque Muskokas that was covered in a dull grey smudge the day Cineplex visited the busy set.
Undeterred by the near-constant rain and freezing temperatures Malin Akerman was all smiles playing the part of demanding Cammie, girlfriend to Todd (fellow Canuck Tyler Labine) who engages in some axe-slinging when plans for the perfect proposal go awry. See? Dark comedy.
While huddled in an upstairs bedroom of the Muskoka cottage where part of the movie was being filmed, Akerman dished about the upcoming Adam Shankman directed musical Rock of Ages where she stars alongside a rock n' roll Tom Cruise who, she assured us, can really sing and who she described as a "such a goof."
Find out what she had to say about her character and co-starring with Tom Cruise!
There's no denying it: Marilyn Monroe remains cinema’s reigning bombshell. Everything about her, from her tousled platinum blond waves to her baby soft voice and infamous measurements complete with wiggly walk, oozed a kind of sensuality that still manages to draw a crowd today. Her irresistible allure was equal parts inherent 'It' factor and strategic creation, as her alter ego Norma Jeane proved. But how does someone who hasn’t graced the silver screen for nearly fifty years maintain that all time sex symbol status? By adopting a signature look that has timeless appeal.
Using some examples from My Week With Marilyn, the new biopic that documents the tumultuous relationship between silver screen icons Sir Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) and Monroe (Michelle Williams) on the set of their 1957 comedy The Prince and the Showgirl, and some of Monroe's most famous dresses, we take a look at how you can steal a few notes from Marilyn’s style playbook, and unleash your inner bombshell today.
The man who brought you the indiest of indies about frustrated convenience store clerks and went on to make a name for himself with wordy, expletive-laden comedic musings on life in the middle class is, to no one's surprise, a gifted public speaker.
Kevin Smith has been touring universities for years, filling up auditoriums for boisterous Q&A sessions where his rabid fanbase ask him everything about his work with Ben Affleck to his ill-fated Green Hornet gig to absurd what-if scenarios that would only be asked of Smith.

John Carter has had a long history of trying to make it to the big screen - from special effects legend Ray Harryhausen's attempts in the 1950s to Die Hard director John McTiernan's efforts to cast Tom Cruise in the lead 30 years later. But it was director Andrew Stanton, the man behind animated hits WALL-E and Finding Nemo, who ended up making it happen.
During a sneak peek media tour this summer at Disney's Barsoom Studios Stanton spoke to Cineplex about his excitement over the project and how he ended up at the helm.
"I called Disney and asked if they'd be willing to give me a shot and try this because I saw it as sort of a hybrid, half-CG half-live action," said Stanton. "And I lucked out and they said yes."
Surprisingly, Stanton wasn't even looking to do a live-action film.
The latest Twilight movie cast the longest shadow with $16.9 million for a third-straight number one finish during one of the year's slowest weekends at the box office.
Business was dismal, with box-office tracker Hollywood.com estimating Sunday that domestic revenues totaled just $82 million. That puts it barely ahead of Hollywood's worst haul of the year, when revenues were $81.5 million over the second weekend in September.
Once studios release final numbers Monday, this past weekend could come in as the worst of the year if revenues finish even lower.
The first weekend of December often presents a lull in between big Thanksgiving releases and the onslaught of year-end blockbusters that arrive a bit later. But this big a slowdown is surprising given that there's quality stuff out there among the top-10 films, particularly family fare such as The Muppets, Hugo and Arthur Christmas.
Hollywood executives usually blame bad weekends on a weak crop of movies.
The Cineplex.com store boasts over 25,000 titles, from the newest hits to golden oldies, indie fare and even your favourite TV shows. Come back here every Tuesday to find out what new movies you can RENT or BUY and how many SCENE points you can earn with each purchase.

It'll be a busy shopping season at next month's Sundance Film Festival, whose star-studded premieres are up for grabs by potential theatrical distributors.
Some premieres usually enter the independent-film showcase with U.S. distribution already lined up. But festival director John Cooper said all the premieres that Sundance announced Monday will be looking for distributors.
"I don't think that's ever happened before," said Cooper. "It makes for a much more exciting buyer's market, I think. At least, lively."
Among Sundance's big-name premieres: Kirsten Dunst's wedding romp Bachelorette, directed by Leslye Headland; Bruce Willis and Catherine Zeta-Jones' Las Vegas bookie caper Lay the Favorite, from filmmaker Stephen Frears; Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon's Wall Street saga Arbitrage, directed by Nicholas Jarecki; Sigourney Weaver and Robert De Niro in Rodrigo Cortes' paranormal thriller Red Lights; and actor-director Julie Delpy's 2 Days in New York, co-starring Chris Rock in a follow-up to her 2007 romance 2 Days in Paris.
