Where to go and what to do this week...

Who's scariest?

5 random reasons...


...to print a picture of Jack 'hot' Huston
1. Catch him at the cinema playing drug smuggler Graham Plinston in Mr Nice, about the infamous drug smuggler Howard Marks (Rhys Ifans).
2. Jack also appeared in Factory Girl with Rhys' ex Sienna Miller. His ex is Cat Deeley.
3. His grandfather is John Huston, who directed The Misfits, The African Queen and The Maltese Falcon, among other films beginning with 'The'.
4. He played Rosalie's evil ex, Royce King II, in Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
5. In real life, he's the son of Lady Margot Lavinia Cholmondeley, an actual aristocrat!
Mr Nice is in cinemas nationwide from October 8
We see DEAD PEOPLE


Zac Efron with his dead screen bro
In his new movie Charlie St Cloud (out October 8) Zac Efron plays a character so upset by his younger brother's death that he takes a job at the cemetery where he's buried (riiight) - only to find he can talk to his ghost! But Zac's not alone (well, clearly, he's got his dead bro) - he's one of a line of actors who find themselves starring in a 'ghost buddy movie'. Weird concept, but it seems to work...
From left to right: Ghost, The Sixth Sense, American Werewolf In London, Beetlejuice
The film: Ghost
The buddies: Murdered Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze) and fake-turned-actual psychic Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg).
Bonding moment: After a night of Sam 'singing' I'm Henery The Eighth I Am, Oda Mae agrees to help him talk to girlfriend Molly.
The film: The sixth sense
The buddies: Dead psychologist Dr Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) and psychic kid Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment).
Bonding moment: When Malcolm finally accepts that Cole is psychic and "sees dead people that walk around like regular people".
The film: American Werewolf In London
The buddies: Soon-to-be werewolf David Kessler (David Naughton) and his already-dead mate Jack (Griffin Dunne).
Bonding moment: When a decaying Jack turns up with David's victims and convinces him that, yes, he is a werewolf.
The film: Beetlejuice
The buddies: Teen goth Lydia (Winona Ryder) and dead-but-lovely couple The Maitlands (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin).
Bonding moment: Pretty much as soon as Lydia meets the Maitlands, who turn out to be way nicer than her own obnoxious parents.
