Cooper will join Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst and Anil Kapoor in “Cities” for director Roger Donaldson, which will tell “stories of characters around the globe, including a NewRead More

One of our favorite up and comers – and one of our Face to Watch in 2012 – will take on ghosts for her next project.

We’ve seen the first pictures and poster of Benjamin Walker as the titular revisionist US President “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, but today we get our first footage from the set of the film. Walker looks totally transformed and eerily like the Lincoln from history while standing in front of Congress. No vampire shenanigans happening in this first video from the movie, just some green screens and a lot of guys in suits, including Anthony Mackie, who plays William, Ab’s best friend. Timur Bekmambetov directed the film on location in NewRead More
Dominic Cooper‘s career is slowly going from strength to strength. He’s showed his range through supporting roles in a variety of films, from 2008 musical “Mamma Mia” and 2009 Oscar-nominated drama An Education, to box office hit “Captain America: The First Avenger” and this year’s Oscar contender “My Week With Marilyn” and we think 2012 is definitely going to be the year to watch him gain leading man status.

British rising star Dominic Cooper – not his “Captain America” co-star Chris Evans – will be headlining Warner Bros’ ambitious revenge thriller “Motor City” for director Albert Hughes, reports Variety.
