Bumper 132-Page Issue

The Calcium Kid
• Our cover star Orlando Bloom might be the hottest property in Hollywood right now but he hasn’t forgotten his roots. After success with The Lord of the Rings and The Pirates of the Caribbean, he reveals why he loves this smaller-scale Brit flick.

Undercover copsStarsky & Hutch
• They kept the fashions and the car – but that’s about it! Donning our chest wigs and flares, we interrogated stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson about their comedy remake of the 70s cop show.

Sean Penn21 Grams
• We talk to Hollywood heavyweight Sean Penn about his Oscar-worthy performance, and also to his two co-stars Naomi Watts and Benicio Del Toro.

Cate BlanchettThe Missing
• What on earth is Cate Blanchett doing being all rough and ready in a Western when she barely knows a thing about the genre? We track her down to find out!

Open Range
• Staying in the American West, with his latest Western a critical and commercial success, star and director Kevin Costner tells us why he’s relieved to have made another great movie – at last!

The Bigger Picture
• You want posters – we’ll give you posters! Check out the cool Wesley Snipes in Blade: Trinity, Will Smith in I, Robot and our first look at Tom Hanks in the Coen Brothers’ remake of The Ladykillers.

Welcome to the Jungle
• After earning a reputation as a goofball comic actor by playing Stifler in the American Pie franchise and teen movies that have redefined the word ‘gross’, Seann William Scott tells us why he finally wants to be taken seriously.

Against the Ropes
• After the controversy caused by In the Cut, Meg Ryan is determined to shake off her cutesy image. Her latest movie, based on a true story, should help that mission, playing a boxing promoter fighting her way in a male-dominated sport.

Top 20 TV adaptations
• It should be simple: you already know you’ve got a winning formula with a successful TV series – but can you transfer it to the big screen? With the comedy remake of Starsky & Hutch heading our way, we celebrate the biggest and best TV transfers.
