Just How Dark Will 'Watchmen' Be? (Spoilers)



Let me lead off by telling you this article does have a story spoiler in it if you have never read the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons graphic novel "Watchmen". However, if you have already read the novel this article is going to be quite informative as I just couldn't handle not asking Jeffrey Dean Morgan about a specific scene from the novel that I felt had to be in the movie and could not be changed in any way. The scene I refer to is pictured above and takes place at the end of the Vietnam War in which both The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup) play a large role in.

Richard Dreyfuss sues father over loan

LOS ANGELES -- Richard Dreyfuss is suing his father and uncle over an $870,000 loan he claims was never repaid.


The lawsuit centers around a loan Dreyfuss claims he made to his relatives in 1984, who owned an interest in a downtown Los Angeles office building.

Roughly 24 years later, Dreyfuss says that loan—and interest— remains unpaid.

In his lawsuit filed Friday, Dreyfuss says his uncle, Gilbert Dreyfuss, has repeatedly refused to turn over records that would show its financial status.

Phone and e-mail messages left for Gilbert Dreyfuss were not immediately returned. A woman who answered the phone at an address registered to Dreyfuss’ father, Norman, said he could not be reached there.

Dreyfuss alleges his uncle and father, Norman Dreyfuss, have acted with “fraud” and “malice.” He is seeking a repayment of the loan, plus interest and punitive damages.

Tony Hart, the younger brother of freestyler Carey Hart was killed.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Tony Hart, the younger brother of freestyler Carey Hart, was killed during practice for the second round of the XTRM/AMA Supermoto Championship at Stafford Springs Raceway in Stafford Springs, Connecticut. He was 21.

Hart, riding for the Rockstar/Hart & Huntington KTM in the Supermoto Lites class, suffered fatal head injuries when he high-sided on the paved third turn of the oval portion of the race course. He was transported to a local hospital where he was declared dead.

Officials from both the AMA and XTRM, the series promoters, refused to confirm his death. It was first confirmed by Stafford Motor Speedway, which issued a statement around 7:00 p.m. that read: "It is with deep regret that the Stafford Motor Speedway announces that during a practice session of the AMA/XTRM sanctioned SuperMoto Event, being held today, rider Anthony Hart, age 21 of Henderson, Nevada, succumbed to injuries received while participating in the event. The Speedway extends their condolences to the family and friends of Anthony Hart."

Hart’s father, Tom Hart, was with him at the hospital. Carey Hart was flying to the area from Sturgis, South Dakota.

The death was the first in the six-year history of the AMA Supermoto Championship.

Rockstar/Hart & Huntington team manager praised the young rider.

“Tony is a pretty dedicated guy,” Watson said at the end of a bittersweet night. Rockstar/Hart & Huntington’s Steve Drew won his second Supermoto Unlimited race of the season and teammate Travis Marks finished fourth. “He never really had any kind of focus until he got involved with Supermoto. And the last eight months he’s been just dedicated himself to riding and racing and training. And everyone around him from his family to his friends have never seen him so dedicated with his training and riding.

“He really, really, really enjoyed what he did. He stayed in my room last night and we stayed up until four o’clock in the morning just talking about life and racing. He had a lot of ambition and a lot of goals.”

Watson was told of Hart’s passing by a state police officer well prior to the heat races. He relayed the news to the team just before the heat races. They discussed withdrawing, but were encouraged by Tom Hart to continue.

“Tony’s dad called me and he said, ‘Tony’s blessings are with you guys and Tony would want you guys to race, no matter what,’” Watson said. “It was kind of hard for us to get our morale together and go racing. I’ve got to take my hat off to Steve (Drew) and Travis (Marks) for finishing a solid first and fourth tonight.”

Chace Crawford: I feel morally bad about Gossip Girl sex scenes


Chace Crawford has revealed that he sometimes feels guilty about the sex-centred storylines in Gossip Girl.

He told the Independent recently that he’s worried that the nudity and storylines in the teen show give out the wrong impression: “Is that a weight on my conscience? Well, yes, I think it is.

“I come from a moral background, and I can see the power of the show, and imagine my old school-teachers cringing, or my grandparents thinking ‘Oh my God’ when they see me, say, having sex on a barstool.

“But you have to remember, this is not a reality show. It’s supposed to be pure entertainment.

“I don’t actually think people give enough credit to teenagers who watch the show. They’re not stupid, and it’s not like we’re making an instruction manual telling them how to drink and do drugs, or have sex. We’re just laying out how it is.

“My character is very conflicted, and even in the episodes where he’s having sex then dumping girls, there’s often regret. You know, there are repercussions to certain sorts of behaviour that come full circle.”

Holly will cut a Ukrainian bitch

New brunette threatens to disturb balance among Hefner’s girlfriends



The inevitable has occurred. Hugh Hefner is falling for the charms of a woman outside his trio of girlfriends. According to the National Enquirer, Hugh has been paying a lot of attention to a brunette Ukranian model named Dasha Astafieva. The two have been seen holding hands and Hugh has attended nude photo shoots with the striking young woman. This is royally pissing off Hef’s women, especially his most devoted girlfriend, Holly, who has talked about how much she wants to have the 82 year-old Playboy founder’s baby. Holly may have some minor competition in Bridget and Kendra, and by some accounts she’s fighting with Kendra, but she’s in charge in the girlfriend heirarchy. If another woman enters the picture she could find herself lower on the totem pole or get pushed out entirely.

Shifta & Flo Rida Collaborate in Miami

Up-and-Coming Jamaican Artist, Shifta, collaborates with Hip-Hop Superstar, Flo Rida, on hot new single, "Do It"

MIAMI – Hot new reggae artist, Shifta, recently hit the studio with platinum-selling chart-topper, Flo Rida, to re-record Shifta’s hit single “Do It.”

Known for his hit songs “Elevator” featuring Timbaland and “In the Ayer” featuring will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas, Flo Rida is an international hip-hop & pop superstar conquering the Billboard Hot 100 Charts in early 2008 for 10 straight weeks with his debut single, “Low” featuring T-Pain.

After hearing the original version of Shifta’s hit single “Do It,” which has been enjoying consistent rotation on top Miami radio stations, Flo Rida, a Miami native, knew that he wanted to collaborate on “Do It” with the talented young Jamaican.

Shifta & Flo Rida got together in Miami’s premiere studio, Circle House, owned by legendary reggae group, Inner Circle. The meeting resulted in Flo Rida laying down two verses on the new single, which Shifta is now gearing up to release.

Footage of Shifta and Flo Rida in the recording studio will soon be available via local Jamaican television stations and the Internet to whet the appetites of thousands of fans anxiously awaiting the singles release.

“It was a crazy experience to get in the studio with Flo Rida because he’s great at what he does,” says Shifta. “He’s a hit-maker and I definitely think that he added his unique flavor to the song.”

Aside from this new collaboration, Shifta has also been working on his debut album in Miami, attracting the attention of several major record labels in the U.S. In addition, Shifta has kept busy by performing, including a well-received performance during the 2008 Best of the Best Concert, the biggest reggae concert/festival in North America.

Shifta also has plans to host a promotional mix C.D. alongside his new recording partner, Flo Rida, to be released in the fall of 2008.

True Blood Preview and Interview with Creator Alan Ball



HBO: After 'Six Feet Under,' making a show about vampires is a bit of a departure — what can viewers expect from 'True Blood?'

Alan Ball: It's based on a series of books written by Charlaine Harris, and it takes place in a world where vampires have made their presence known to humans. They've come out of the coffin, so to speak, because of the development by a Japanese biotech firm of synthetic blood for medical purposes, which the vampires claim fulfills all of their nutritional needs. So they've organized, and they're struggling for assimilation and for equal rights. That's sort of the big-world picture, and then in the small world of the show, which is a very small town in northern Louisiana, there is a waitress who works in a roadhouse, and she's telepathic, which has been a seriously debilitating pain in the ass for her. Everybody thinks she's crazy. She has no social life because of this, and then she meets a vampire. And because, technically, he has no brainwaves, she doesn't really hear his thoughts. So for the first time in her entire life, she can relax and be herself and not be on guard about hearing people's private, innermost things. And then there's a huge array of other characters; it's a really fun show. I remember when I was first pitching it, I said, ''This is popcorn TV for smart people.''

Are Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson proving that adage about how certain couples eventually start to look alike? When the twiggy, never-apart twosome arrived back in Los Angeles on Wednesday after winging to Chicago for Lollapalooza and to Miami for some hang-time with Samantha's family (per People), they strolled through LAX sporting coordinating hats and luggage. During a shopping expedition later in the day, they were styling matching black boots. And it seems they're also showing off some harmonizing accessories that are a bit more permanent. E! News says Lindsay recently retooled a white heart tattoo on her left hand by outlining it in black, a design Sam copied on her left hand. The actress has also reportedly added a red star to her right hand to match the ones Ronson has dotting her right arm. TMZ, meanwhile, says Linds just got another tattoo on her wrist, although the design currently remains under wraps. Perhaps the ink stain is in honor of Sam's birthday, which People reports they celebrated Wednesday night at L.A.'s Crown Bar. Just past midnight, Lohan led club-goers in a chorus of "Happy Birthday" before planting a "lingering kiss" on Ronson.

Eva Longoria Wanted Victoria Beckham's Help With New Restaurant



Eva Longoria Parker reportedly asked Victoria Beckham to be a business partner in her new restaurant venture.

The Desperate Housewives star already owns Beso, a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles, but thought it would be fun to have her WAG friend on board for setting up the next stage of her culinary empire in Las Vegas.

A source told the Daily Mail: “She asked Victoria to come on board and help. Victoria was thrilled.

“[But when she] talked it through with her husband David, he thought she was spreading herself a bit thin and should concentrate on what she was good at - running a successful fashion line and looking after the family.”

The source added that Victoria will still be involved in planning the restaurant launch party.

The Lord of the Light Side

  George Lucas May Be a Cinematic Force, But Is He a Dramatic Heavyweight? Far, Far From It.

Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, August 10, 2008; Page M01

 

He may go down in history as American cinema's master mythmaker, but George Lucas still can't tell a story.

Three years after concluding the epochal "Star Wars" franchise and very publicly retreating to his sprawling Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, Calif., to make "my own little movies," Lucas has reverted to form. Earlier this summer, he produced and co-wrote yet another installment of the lucrative but creatively exhausted "Indiana Jones" adventure series. Friday marks the release of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," an animated spinoff that Lucas executive produced and that looks like precisely what it is: a television show that has been puffed up into a feature-length advertisement for itself.

Taken together, the two movies represent a dispiriting if predictable move, as if the man who reinvented movies -- changing how they're made and marketed, even their collective meaning -- is still incapable of reinventing himself.

Christopher Knight gets game as host of Trivial Pursuit

Christopher Knight, known to millions as middle child Peter Brady of "Brady Bunch" fame, will join a new family this fall as host of the highly anticipated game show, TRIVIAL PURSUIT: AMERICA PLAYS. Set to launch September 22nd in national syndication (check local listings), the series' premiere is timed to coincide with the release of Hasbro's 25th anniversary edition of one of the biggest game franchises in history.

Production begins this week on the half-hour strip which features an unique user generated content twist allowing viewers to drive the action by submitting video questions online. America can upload their trivia asks to www.tpamericaplays.com and will earn the chance to win cash prizes by playing along as the action happens in-studio. Each time the contestant gets a correct answer, money will flow into the Studio Bank but with every miss, those who submitted selected questions will watch the numbers rise in America's Bank-at the end of the game's final round, whoever has more money in the pot will take home the spoils.

Knight, who has been the answer to many a trivia game question over the years, noted: "I've always been a Trivial Pursuit fan and I can really see TV audiences becoming obsessed with this addictive format. Once you start it's hard to stop and I think viewers' fascination with pop culture will keep them coming back for more. Or they can tune in and be bathed in my boyish enthusiasm."

Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, added: "This is a game that has been a hit in 17 countries and in 26 languages so the opportunity to bring the brand to television with Chris in the driver's seat is really a thrill." They added: "With Chris at the helm we are sure that this show will find a very passionate audience."

The Force Is With Dark Knight

Los Angeles (E! Online) - Beware, Lord Vader.



The Dark Knight brought its overall domestic gross to $441.5 million today, per Exhibitor Relations estimates, moving the film to third among the all-time box office champs, and leaving it perhaps only a week away from trumping Star Wars for second place.

The Batman movie's Friday-Sunday take of $26 million gave the blockbuster its fourth-straight weekend box office win—a feat not accomplished since Lord of the Rings: Return of the King ruled in 2003-04.

Assuming the studio estimates hold, the weekend gross moved Dark Knight up four spots on the all-time list, as the film bypassed Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ($423 million), Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace ($431 million), E.T. ($435 million) and Shrek 2 ($441.2 million).

If The Dark Knight maintains its current pace, the movie should have enough momentum to overtake the original Star Wars ($461 million, including rereleases) by the end of next weekend.

After Star Wars, the next box office challenge for The Dark Knight will be to break $500 million.

After that, the next box office challenge will be to break Titanic ($601 million).

And after that, it can rest.

Drilling down through the box office standings:

• Pineapple Express ($22.4 million) bowed in second. After five days, the Seth Rogen-James Franco action-comedy, which opened Wednesday, has taken in $40.5 million against a reported $27 million budget. True, the Rogen-penned Superbad got off to an even faster start ($43.3 million in its first five days last August). But, also true, the Superbad guys didn't have to tangle with the Batman. • In one of the sadder tales of the summer, The X-Files: I Want to Believe ($1.2 million, per Box Office Mojo) disappeared from the Top 10 after just a two-weekend stay. To date, the $35 million movie has failed to gross even $20 million overall, and managed to sell fewer tickets than Space Chimps ($1.7 million; $25.4 million). • Like the new X-Files movie, Space Chimps fell out of the Top 10. Unlike the new X-Files movie, Space Chimps lasted there three weekends. • In its second weekend, business for The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (third place, $16.1 million; $70.7 million overall) plunged 60 percent. • Now in its fourth weekend, Mamma Mia! (sixth place, $8.1 million; $104 million overall) hasn't seen weekend-to-weekend business dip even 40 percent. • Will Ferrell's and John C. Reilly's Step Brothers (fifth place, $8.9 million; $80.9 million) is also sticking around. • Let it be noted: The generally liked The Incredible Hulk ($287,000; $133.8 million overall, per Box Office Mojo) has made more money than the widely scorned Hulk ($132.2 million). Until you add in the foreign grosses. • The Philip Roth-spawned drama Elegy, starring Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz, was, screen for screen, the biggest hit of the weekend, taking in $102,441 at six theaters. Here's a recap of the top-grossing weekend films based on Friday-Sunday estimates compiled by Exhibitor Relations:

• The Dark Knight, $26 million • Pineapple Express, $22.4 million • The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, $16.1 million • The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, $10.8 million • Step Brothers, $8.9 million • Mamma Mia!, $8.1 million • Journey to the Center of the Earth, $4.9 million • Hancock, $3.3 million • Swing Vote, $3.1 million • WALL-E, $3 million

WHO is playing Anne of Cleves in The Tudors??

Joss Stone is moving from rock 'n' roll to royalty. Ill-fated royalty, that is.

E! News has confirmed that the Grammy Award winner has signed up for her first small-screen role, appearing in the third season of Showtime's The Tudors as Henry VIII's fourth fleeting wife, Anne of Cleves.

Yes, that'd be the fugly one.

Per the cable net, the upcoming season of the show, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, follows Henry's marriages to third queen Jane Seymour, played by Anita Briem, and then Stone's Anne.

Anne entered into a marriage treaty with the capricious king after Henry was shown a portrait of her. When she arrived in England, the royal was said to be disappointed by her actual appearance and annulled the marriage after just six months, indicating that Stone's screen time perhaps will be equally as fleeting.

Two Dusty Biopics In The Works
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Question: What’s the status of the biopic of 1960s British pop star Dusty Springfield, starring Charlize Theron?

Answer: Springfield—who died of breast cancer in 1999 at 59 after a troubled life—is the subject of two biopics, but Theron is not involved. Nicole Kidman will produce and star in one, and Michael Cunningham (The Hours) is writing the script. Before that, Kidman has another singing role—in Nine, set to start filming in October. Meanwhile, Kristin Chenoweth also is developing a Springfield biopic for herself that may be out first.

I honestly can't imagine either of them doing her justice. :( Hopefully she won't be portrayed as bisexual, as the early reports were suggesting.

There needs to be a Samuel L. Jackson protection program


Soul Men: Moving On Without Isaac Hayes And Bernie Mac

Soul Men: Moving On Without Isaac Hayes And Bernie Mac It’s been a depressing weekend for great black artists. In the span of 48 hours the entertainment industry has lost a legendary music icon in the form of Isaac Hayes, and a still rising, yet already legendary star in comedian Bernie Mac. It’s bad news for one movie in particular, a soon to be released film called Soul Men.

In one weekend, a significant portion of the movie’s primary cast has been wiped out. The film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Bernie Mac, and yes, the recently late, great Isaac Hayes in the story of two estranged soul legends (played by Jackson and Mac) who reunite at the Apollo Theater to honor their recently deceased band leader. Principle photography was already finished, so there should be no problem with getting it ready for release, but you have to wonder now whether or not Dimension Films will want to release it.

Death is a big subject in the film. The entire plot of the movie revolves around Mac and Jackson eulogizing the death of their friend with music, only now two members of the film’s actual cast really are dead. Three days ago it sounded like a fantastic idea for a film, especially in light of the way Sam Jackson belted out blues tunes in Black Snake Moan. Now, it seems almost too sad to watch. Buying a ticket to Soul Men could end up feeling like you’re purchasing a seat at someone’s funeral.

The movie doesn’t open until November 14th, so that does give the world a little time to grieve for its tragically departed stars. Still, don’t be surprised if Dimension Films decides to delay it a little more, maybe even until next year. November 14th may be too soon, particularly in light of the subject matter. Granted, after Heath Ledger’s death Warner Brothers found it prudent to let their film continue onward as planned after the death of its star, Heath Ledger. But The Dark Knight, for all it’s subtlety and complexity, was a summer superhero movie, and a hotly anticipated one, which only became more high profile after Ledger’s demise. Soul Men is something else entirely, a smaller movie, one that seems to be at least in part, specifically about grieving and death. Dimension studios may be left with no choice but to alter their plans for Soul Men, though we’re almost certain to see the film eventually.

Expect some official word from Dimension later this week, as they return to work on Monday and try to figure this depressing thing out. If there's a silver lining in this anywhere for them, it's that they cast Sam Jackson and not Morgan Freeman.

This has been one ROUGH weekend. I think, tricky as the subject matter may be, that they should go ahead and release it as planned. Cliche as it sounds, Bernie and Isaac would have wanted it that way, and it will give their family, friends and fans a chance to see them doing what they loved one more time (although I think Bernie Mac had just finished a movie that was supposed to be out next year, too)
SMILE BITCH

if you like radiohead or coldplay you are EFFING UGLY AS HELL!


It’s no secret that Oasis’ Gallagher brothers were never really into Radiohead. But just when Noel Gallagher praised the band for a change (for the ‘In Rainbows’ release: ‘they’re rebels and outsiders‘), brother Liam is at it again.

In an interview with The Times today, Liam Gallagher says he and his brother “are two totally different people and the sooner people realise that the less we can go on about it”. But yeah, I’ve mellowed, but not in the sense of liking Radiohead or Coldplay. I don’t hate them. I don’t wish they had accidents. I think their fans are boring and ugly and they don’t look like they’re having a good time.” Liam doesn’t like any contemporary bands. “Not interested. I play the Beatles, the Stones, the Kinks, Neil Young, the Pistols. Maybe a bit of the Roses. Don’t like modern bands. Topman music, innit?”

Macca set to wed?



Paul McCartney is thinking about marrying Hamptonite Nancy Shevell, the British tabloid News of the World reported Sunday.

McCartney, 65, and Shevell, 47, were photographed kissing outside an Amagansett sushi place in November and are in the midst of a road trip on U.S. Route 66, according to several published reports.

Shevell, a board member of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, is legally separated from Bruce Blakeman, a Port Authority commissioner and former presiding officer of the Nassau County Legislature.

According to the tabloid's report, McCartney told his daughter, Stella, that he is considering proposing to Shevell. The unsourced story said Stella gave her blessing.


Neither McCartney, Shevell nor Blakeman could be reached for comment yesterday.
