Take a closer look at The Planet Of The Apes from 1968. A film that posed a number of philosophical, sociopolitical and culturally relevant questions in an allegorical science fiction epic that spanned several sequels, television series, animated programs, and present day reboots.
Consider the year in which The Planet Of The Apes was released, 1968. The turbulent years of the seventies were just about to hit while the civil rights movements were in full swing (as evidenced by the riots in Detroit). Here comes this movie, based on Pierre Boulle’s 1964 novel where astronaut/journalist Ulysse (anyone familiar with Greek mythology should be rolling their eyes) lands on a planet inhabited by apes who have comparable technological advances. It was the film’s screenwriters and producers who felt compelled to set the ape civilization in a more primitive, shantytown environment and integrate relevant issues of the times.

Being huge comic fans here at Grizzly Bomb, we are always eagerly seeking any awesome looking comic book creations. Personally I love it when they come from non-main stream comic sources. So it was pretty incredible when Blake Henriksen’s (or Pink Havok as he is known online) work came to my attention.

One of my favorite characters on TV is Luther’s Alice Morgan, played by none other than Ruth Wilson. Well, now Ms. Wilson is about to make a splash across the pond in Disney’s The Lone Ranger. And while I don’t have high hopes for the movie itself, I’m sure she will be excellent in it.

Emilia Clarke is one of the most naturally beautiful actresses I have ever seen. She is a favorite of mine because she is the mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series Game of Thrones. Emilia is only 25 years old, and has already become one of the most loved ladies in television. Although she hasn’t been in many productions yet, with her outstanding talent and her classic, timeless beauty, Emilia Clarke deserved this prestigious honor!

Jennifer Lawrence is awesome. There’s no other way to describe her rather than that she is probably the coolest kid at the Hollywood table right now. Yes, she’s super beautiful and gorgeous (hence the flood of pictures we’re about to unleash below for your eye candy). Yes, she’s probably one of the best actresses out there now (two Academy Award nominations and one win and only 22?). And of course, she happens to come off as one of the most down to Earth people out there (see YouTube videos below). Y’know what else she is? Our Grizzly Girl of the Week. For someone who does not get too caught up in the Hollywood fame and never seems to strain to become some marketable image and just plays it straight, she comes off as the girl next door that you’d have a beer with. And maybe ask to marry you. Just saying.

This Mexican beauty decided to become an actress after seeing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at the theater. This alone makes her one of the coolest women in the industry! Salma began her career starring in a Spanish soap opera, but the first roles I noticed her in were that of Santanico Pandemonium (Esmeralda) in From Dusk Till Dawn and Nurse Harper in the Faculty; two of my favorite movies of all time. She is not only gorgeous, but in every interview I’ve seen her in, she is very funny and witty. And everyone knows that a girl with a sense of humor is far sexier than just a pretty face. This week we honor Salma Hayek in all her Spanish glory!
