Una noticia sobre El Hobbit



The upcoming 20th birthday of Empire Magazine has been guest edited by none other than Steven Spielberg. By the power of his magical directing beard, he appears to have secured some rather nifty exclusives for the mag, and now they’re starting to flood out.

Quite impressively, they’ve got the scoop on Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro’s revised plans for The Hobbit. Previously we’d been told that they were going to make two films, the first an adaptation the novel and the second to bridge the gap between that book and The Fellowship of the Ring. Now, however, it seems that The Hobbit itself is going to take up two full length pictures all by itself.

This is only relevant to me because any hope of a third Hellboy movie (shut up I can love both the comics and the movies) is going out the window.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - Season 2 Blu-ray & DVD Pre-Announcement, Pre-Order Listings at Amazon

No release date available yet, but you can pre-purchase your copy now.

As you're probably aware, Amazon has posted a number of "pre-announcement" pre-order listings lately, allowing you lock in your copy of various upcoming TV-DVD titles which haven't actually been put on the schedule by the studio just yet. We've posted news about several of these in recent weeks, and we've found a number of new ones for you today. One of these is Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - The Complete 2nd Season on DVD and high-def Blu-ray Disc from Warner Home Video. Since the product isn't officially announced at this time, these Amazon pre-order listings don't have a release date. Instead they each say "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives." It does have pricing, though, showing $59.98 SRP for the standard DVD, and $79.98 SRP for the high-def BD version (but you can pre-purchase either of them now, reserving your copy at a discounted cost). No other details are available yet, but the DVD version does have a look at what could be its front cover art. It shows that 6 discs would be included in that set (the Blu-ray version, of course, could have a different disc count). We'll update you, of course when more information becomes available. Stay tuned!

Nicole Richie and Harlow at the Park

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Reformed wild child Nicole Richie proved herself to be a very doting mother once again today (April 17) as she and daughter Harlow Madden enjoyed an outing to The Greystone Mansion and Park in Beverly Hills.
The duo seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves as Harlow, still a bit wobbly on her feet, happily bounced around the park with mum following closely behind her.

Nicole didn’t seem to have a lack of energy by any means despite her growing baby bump as she repeatedly lifted Harlow with a big smile on her face, and kept her little one out of trouble when some potted plants seemed to peek her interest.

Management poster



Exclusive: First Look at Jen Aniston's Management Poster!

It's been a good year on the silver screen for Jennifer Aniston. Her last two films, He's Just Not That Into You and Marley & Me were both #1 at the box office and raked in hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide (take that, Angelina!). And with the upcoming release of her new comedy, Management, the former Friends star is looking to extend that streak.

OK! has just exclusively obtained the first poster for Management, which co-stars Steve Zahn as a haplessly romantic motel manager trying to woo Jen away from her current beau, macho man Woody Harrelson.

Be sure to check out the romantic comedy when it hits theaters nationwide on May 15!

Mel Gibson's Girlfriend: Mystery Solved?



Shortly after Mel Gibson's wife Robyn filed for divorce last week, details emerged about a woman the actor-filmmaker has been spending a lot of time with – even taking her on a family vacation to Costa Rica – named Oksana. She is, sources tell PEOPLE, a Russian singer signed to Mel Gibson's record label, Icon Records.

Now the identity of his mystery girlfriend may be revealed: Public records suggest Oksana Grigorieva, 39, an ex of former James Bond star Timothy Dalton, has lived in a house linked to Gibson, 53.

Jackie Chan: Chinese people need to be controlled

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Action star Jackie Chan said Saturday he's not sure if a free society is a good thing for China and that he's starting to think "we Chinese need to be controlled."

Chan's comments drew applause from a predominantly Chinese audience of business leaders in China's southern island province of Hainan.

The 55-year-old Hong Kong actor was participating in a panel at the annual Boao Forum when he was asked to discuss censorship and restrictions on filmmakers in China. He expanded his comments to include society.

"I'm not sure if it's good to have freedom or not,"
Chan said. "I'm really confused now. If you're too free, you're like the way Hong Kong is now. It's very chaotic. Taiwan is also chaotic."

Chan added: "I'm gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we're not being controlled, we'll just do what we want."

The kung fu star has not been a vocal supporter of the pro-democracy movement in his hometown of Hong Kong. Since the former British colony returned to Chinese rule in 1997, voters have not been allowed to directly elect their leader. Several massive street protests have been held to demand full democracy, but Beijing has repeatedly said Hong Kong isn't ready for it.


The theme at Saturday's panel discussion was "Tapping into Asia's Creative Industry Potential," and Chan had several opinions about innovation in China.

He said that early in his career, he lived in the shadow of the late martial arts star Bruce Lee. He said that during his first foray into Hollywood, he struggled to establish his own identity, so he returned to Hong Kong. After spending 15 years building his reputation in Asia, Chan finally got rediscovered by Hollywood, he said.

Chan said the problem with Chinese youth is that "they like other people's things. They don't like their own things." Young people need to spend more time developing their own style, he added.

The action hero complained that Chinese goods still have too many quality problems. He became emotional when discussing contaminated milk powder that sickened tens of thousands of Chinese babies in the past year.

Speaking fast with his voice rising, Chan said, "If I need to buy a TV, I'll definitely buy a Japanese TV. A Chinese TV might explode."

Franz Ferdinand frontman refuses to show his nipples at Coachella

The Scottish band deliver a rousing set as the sun goes down
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Franz Ferdinand played one of the liveliest sets of Day One of the Coachella Festival (April 17). Although the band just released a new album, they played several older crowd-pleasers that got the huge crowd dancing at the main stage.

Kicking things off with 'Dark Of The Matinee', the band then launched into the highly danceable new tune 'No You Girls' as the sun set over the festival grounds, turning the surrounding mountains shades of pink and orange.

"Are you doing all right Coachella?" Kapranos asked. "It's beautiful with the sun setting in the desert. It's pretty good."

The audience tossed beach balls and danced with their hands in the air during their 50-minute set. "I hear there's a band called The Beatles playing here later," he quipped, referring to former Beatle Paul McCartney's headlining set on the same stage later in the evening.

When he spotted a woman in the crowd holding a large Scottish flag, Kapranos said "I'd like to dedicate the song to the girl in front with a Scottish flag," before launching into 'Walk Away'.

He later responded to someone in the crowd who asked him to take his shirt off. "Someone on the crowd wants to see my nipples," he said. "There's not a lot going on there I'm afraid."

Franz Ferdinand played:

'Dark Of The Matinee'
'No You Girls'
'Michael
'Turn It On'
'Walk Away'
This songs for everyone
'Take Me Out'
'Ulysses'
'What She Came For'

Hot Boys Move Forward With Reunion Plans

'I already signed the deal,' Juvenile tells Vibe magazine

By Shaheem Reid

 

It looks like the long-awaited Hot Boys reunion is out of the talking stages and getting serious. Money has been spent to ensure the reunion happens.

"I already signed the deal," Juvenile told Vibe contributor Alison Fensterstock in March. The interview went up on Vibe.com Thursday.

"So for me, I'm gonna definitely say it's a go," Juvenile said. "I already received the check. Wayne is going to put that out, so for me and Wayne, it's a go. I don't know if the business been straightened out, but I know B.G.'s on board and he's willing to do it. I don't know where Turk stands on the business side."

Last year, Hot Boy alums Lil Wayne, B.G. and Juvenile were hyped to join each other onstage at a New Orleans club. But before they had a chance to make it to the venue, shots rang out outside the club and the party was shut down.

"It was going to be a big, historic moment," B.G. told MTV News. "I was just saying that everybody was cool during the All-Star Weekend, then they start shooting. Why'd they have to shoot up on our night? Guess that's Chopper City for ya."

When we spoke to Lil Wayne that same day, Weezy said he was not going to the club to get with his old group but was open to working with them in the future. Late last year before the BET Hip-Hop Awards, Weezy told Mixtape Monday a reunion was in the works, but didn't know when it would launch.

Since the Hot Boys' breakup — amidst business fallouts with Slim and Baby, the heads of Cash Money Records — they've traded disses with one another and reconciled. Last year Juvenile suffered the murder of his daughter, while B.G. was supposed to drop a solo LP on Atlantic Records, but that never surfaced.

Universal Records, Cash Money's distributor, had no comment as to when the album will be released.

Morrissey condemns meat eaters at Coachella Festival

Moz delivers Smiths tunes galore during his set

morrissey lñove Pictures, Images and Photos

Morrissey kicked off his set at the Coachella Festival with the classic Smiths tune 'This Charming Man' -- just one in a string of hit songs by his former band that he played tonight (April 17).

Performing in front of a backdrop with a black-and-white photograph of the naked torso of a sailor smoking a cigar with the word 'Refusal' written across his chest, the singer humbly asked, "Does it sound OK?" after performing 'Girlfriend In A Coma'. The audience cheered back loudly in response.

Midway through the set, Morrissey said, "I can smell burning flesh and I hope to God it's human," as the smell of barbequed meat from nearby food stands wafted through the air. A few minutes later, the famous vegetarian walked off the stage in the middle of 'Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others'.

He returned shortly afterward, saying, "The smell of burning animals is making me sick. I just couldn't bear it."

Morrissey continued on, performing his latest single 'I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris' as well as older solo material and more classic Smiths tunes including 'Ask Me' and set-closer 'How Soon Is Now', which culminated with a loud gong finale.

Anti-Gay Group Sends Letter To Colbert Thanking Him For Mocking Them


If you've been fortunate enough to see the bizarre issue ad put out last week by the National Organization for Marriage, which contends that heterosexuals are threatened by a coming scourge of gay-wedding tornadoes, then you've likely already accepted as a given that the people behind NOM are not terribly intelligent individuals.

But, as if seized with the need to demonstrate this further, the organization has sent Stephen Colbert a letter of thanks for producing a commercial parody that depicts the NOM membership as closeted, dim nitwits.

Apparently, they believe that Colbert has helped their cause, somehow. This is, as they say, ADORBS:

"I've always thought Stephen Colbert was a double-agent, pretending to pretend to be a conservative, to pull one over Hollywood. Now I'm sure," said Maggie Gallagher, the President of NOM.

"Thank you Stephen for playing our ad in full on national television--for free. HRC eat your heart out. Plus we all had a great chuckle, too!" said Brian Brown, NOM's Executive Director. "Where can I make a donation to the National Organization for Colbert?"
Yes. NOM appears to believe that pretending to not understand the central satiric conceit of the show constitutes a witty comeback. They are also under the impression that their opponents at the Human Rights Campaign were saddened, watching Stephen Colbert rip NOM a new one. This is deeply weird! But I think what's going on here is that NOM has embraced a tired bit of election year conventional wisdom: the belief that getting your commercial played, in any venue, even if its subjected to ruthless mocking, constitutes "winning the media cycle," or something.

It doesn't! But don't tell them that! It's high time that organizations like NOM started showing the people who point out their rampaging idiocy a little gratitude!

Twilight ppl

Ashley Greene says Jackson and her have crushes on each other and they would date if they stopped travelling so much.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic



Australia’s Herald Sun has a new article about Ashley Greene.



As an actor you want people to know you and there are times you want your pictures taken, but it’s unnerving to walk out of a venue with friends and there are 20 people flashing lights in your face. Do you know how bright those lights are?”

Along with her newfound fame and unending attention, Greene says her biggest challenge has been learning the black art of time management and juggling the constant flow of meetings and engagements.

While speaking with Play, Greene is packing before heading off on a further overseas trip, this time to London before starting filming on the second Twilight film, New Moon.

“I’m definitely learning about this whole time management thing,” she says. “I’ve gone from having a regular job that started at nine and finished at a set time, to running around, going to meetings and rehearsals, flying here and flying there, all the while trying to have a social life — and furnish my home. It’s amazing, but I’m still getting used to it.”

But the Twilight phenomenon just gets bigger and bigger and, despite the film’s mixed reviews (see ours on Page 6), when the DVD hit shops in the US on March 27 more than three million fans snapped up copies in 24 hours, earning the Twilight DVD a spot in the top five first-day DVD earners of the past two years.

Greene’s role in the film may also have found her love — with her on-screen husband, of all people.

The chemistry between Greene and on-screen partner Jasper Hale (played by best-friend Jackson Rathbone) has lead to rumours the two are dating.

Though Greene is adamant they are not, she admits the only thing keeping them apart is their hectic schedules.

“He and I both don’t have time to date, but we do have amazing chemistry,” she says.

“We both have such big crushes on each other and it clearly shows. We got along instantly and the day we met, he was teaching me how to swing dance.

“He (Rathbone) does everything. He sings, he dances, and he’s so sweet. Even my mum has a crush on him and tells me, ‘You should date him’. So, who knows, maybe when we both stop running around the world.”

The Cougar: Will You Accept This Cold Sore?



The Cougar premiered a few days ago on TVLand, but last night I was drunk and stoned enough to venture into the den! Let me just say, this shit makes The Bachelor look like caviar on a silver spoon. It is such a piece of low-budget trash! The whole thing looks like it was paid for with a handful of McDonald's Monopoly tokens and a gift certificate to Master Cuts. I bet they didn't even pay to film in that mansion! They just crashed an open house. Anyway, this shit is under the fucking barrel.

The grossest part of the whole show is the elimination ceremony. Vivica Fox, who only signed up for this mess after producers promised they would track down her hairline, announces to the group of dicktards that if "The Cougar" gives them her lips, they are safe, if she gives them her cheek, they have to go home. Seriously, they can't even afford roses, so they pass out the herp instead! You know I'm not a prude, but this shit is kind of disgusting. You're not supposed to use your lips during orgies! Couldn't she put on a rubber glove and give them a handjob instead? That would be more sanitary. This shit must be sponsored by Abreva. Clip above.

Janeane Garofalo says tea parties were for racist rednecks'

Hey, if you participated in one of the 700+ “tea parties” held across the nation on April 15th, guess what?

Actress and former comedienne Janeane Garofalo doesn’t like you.

Garofalo appeared on Keith Olbermann’s show Thursday night, and with guns a blazing she condemned anyone who participated in the tax and spend protests on tax day.

“Let’s be very honest about what this is about,” she said. “It’s not about bashing Democrats, it’s not about taxes, they have no idea what the Boston tea party was about, they don’t know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up. That is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks.”

The best new band of the past few years - Nico Vega


Profile on the excellent new band, Nico Vega


I’ve been known to complain from time to time often about the fact that music today doesn’t produce legendary artists of the caliber that we once had. When was the last time we had a Janis Joplin, a Michael Jackson, a Led Zeppelin, a Guns N’ Roses?

Now that we’re all so connected that anyone with a little marketing sense can become a at least a temporary rock star, those that actually have the skills to reach out and touch a worldwide audience often have to hang it up and get day jobs before they ever have a chance to shine.

The best we’ve had going for us up until now, it seems, have been bands like Radiohead, a group of boring, pretentious pricks that got big on record company dollars and then turn around and bite the hand that feeds them every chance they get... Or perhaps this decade will be remembered for Kanye West, a marginal rapper and pretty good producer that will probably be looked upon as the MC Hammer of this generation. F**king great.

Nico Vega is one of a very small group, one that can probably be counted on one hand, that I feel has the power to overcome this unsettling trend. Not only do they write great songs, but they perform them as if they’re going to perish from the earth at any moment. There are many groups in Los Angeles that I like, that I think are cute and/or fun, but Nico Vega is one of the few, maybe the only one that I personally know of that I can look to and see real potential for greatness. Much of the credit is due to Richie and Dan, the charismatic guitarist and drummer for the band. But the lion’s share would have to go to Aja, a singer the likes of which I have not have ever seen in my generation.

Chick singers usually fall back on traditional stylings, cute outfits or fake, Joan Jett “bad girl” imagery to get by. Aja is like a creature from outer space that’s never even heard of any of that shit. Her voice sounds like a bomb with an invisible fuse, and it will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck when you hear it in person. It sounds great on record too (speaking of which, I recommend you pick up their new record immediately), but to see them play together in person is one of those things that you will be glad you did, days or months or years from now when their star is burning brightest.

Anyway, I promised you an interview a few gushing paragraphs back, so here’s that:

Spoiler Alert! More of Jen's Bad Men/Movie Formula


We gotta hand it to Angelina Jolie, whether she's in Tomb Raider popcorn stuff or Changeling fancy flicks, she steals the damn show, something Jen Aniston has never learned how to do.

J.A. is always, always the second-fiddle girlfriend to the main dude (Bruce Almighty, Rock Star) or lost in a sea of costars (He's Just Not That Into You). And it's even worse when she really is the star. Oh, no? What bitch was featured on the Marley & Me poster? A friggin' dog. How insulting is that?

And now Aniston's slumming it (professionally and paycheck-wise) in the indie movie Management, in which we hear Jen, whom we really do love, still manages to get upstaged by a less likely source...

The way underrated Steve Zahn, that's who. The whole forgettable, formulaic flick—just as we predicte it would be—is not about Aniston. It's all about Zahn, who plays a nut job in love with an uptight babe out of his league (that would be our Jen).

He pursues her until she eventually cracks and loves him back. Did we spoil the ending? Only way we could've done that is if you've never seen a movie before.

Damn, if it's between funky stuff like this and fluff like Marley & Me, stick with the dog movies—at least then she gets paid better. Can we please just give her the $16 mil box office now—the same amount The Good Girl made—and not have to watch the damn thing?

Babe was on a roll for a while with memorable li'l flicks like Office Space and The Good Girl. Then what happened? Brad breaks up with her, and does all her taste in men and movies go flying out the window? Films like Rumor Has It and fellas like John Mayer are all she's got to show for herself in the last four years. It's just sad, since we think she deserves a whole lot better than settling for the likes of those flops.

Where's the murderous babe who was fiercely hot in Derailed, already? Just like Tom Cruise, Jen does nasty so much better than nicey.

Remember Joss Stone? No...okay

Coachella 2009: Joss Stone grows artistically

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's gotta be tough being a musical trailblazer who gets left behind and then overlooked in favor of those who follow in their wake.

Like, remember the early days of British female neo-soul singers -- you know, way back in 2003?

That's when a preternaturally gritty-sounding teen named Joss Stone dazzled the pop world with a smoky set of pipes that sounded like they belonged in Muscle Shoals in 1963.

Then came Lily Allen and a nuclear meltdown by the name of Amy Winehouse, and Stone didn't seem quite so unique.

Holly Madison: no more nudity

293_madison_holly_030409-948.jpg

Things have changed a lot for Holly Madison in recent times. The former Girl Next Door moved out of Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion, started and ended a relationship with Las Vegas based illusionist, Criss Angel and is looking for a new direction in life.

While Madison was one of Hugh Hefner's resident girlfriends, she spent a considerable amount of time being scantily clad, but the 29 year old blonde bombshell is hoping to move on from those days.

Madison said, "I'm never getting naked again. I'm over it, I've done it so many times. It is time to switch it up."

Her bid to become a dancing queen was throttled after she was eliminated from Dancing With The Stars. Madison replaced country singer Jewel after she was injured.

Despite the changes in her life, Hugh Hefner, 83, is hoping that she'll still find love. He told People magazine, "My conviction has always been, being an romantic, that the best solution for a failed romance is a new romance."

EXCLUSIVE: Spencer Pratt Challenges Ashton Kutcher to a Twitter Race

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The same day that Ashton Kutcher beat CNN in their much-hyped Twitter race to reach 1 million followers, a new challenger has come to the surface -- The Hills's Spencer Pratt.

"Ashton had a huge head start, but I believe in my Twitter family," Pratt, who currently has 194,048 followers on the social networking site, tells Usmagazine.com.

"From the moment Ashton accepts my challenge, assuming he's man enough to do so, whoever adds the most new followers in 30 days wins."

What are the stakes for their May 17 deadline?

"If I win, Ashton and Demi [Moore, his wife] have to wash my car," he says.

If he loses to the Twitter pro, who now has 1,093,794 followers, Pratt adds that "Heidi [Montag] and I will clean their house."

The Punk'd star had challenged the CNN news network, vowing to donate 10,000 mosquito bed nets to Malaria No More for World Malaria Day in late April if he beat CNN, and 1,000 if he lost. CNN agreed to do the same, but Kutcher reached the benchmark 30 minutes before CNN at 2:15 Friday morning.

Alleged Britney Stalker Says it Was a Joke

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
File this under "yeah right": The woman arrested by police yesterday outside Britney Spears' home peering into her windows with a video camera, Miranda Tozier-Robbins, says the whole thing was a joke.

“The whole thing — it was all a joke in the beginning, everybody knew about it,"
Tozier-Robbins, 26 tells Access Hollywood. “It was supposed to be like a ‘Paparazzi 101’ documentary type deal.”

Despite being clothed in a camouflage outfit, she says she decided to trespass on Brit's Calabasas, Calif. property on the spur of the moment.

“What originally was supposed to happen was, I was going to tape whatever I could get. I would be like, far away doing a stakeout,”
Tozier-Robbins told host Billy Bush. “It didn’t work out as planned, so when I was already halfway there in the mountains [around Britney’s home], it was already Wednesday night/Thursday morning ... I already knew Britney herself wouldn’t be there, but it’s like, I came that far, I might as well go see the house, at least get the house on tape, because I know people would be interested in seeing stuff like that.”

Oh sure, might as well!

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, you understand? She’s coming through on the tour, on the stop, it’s like take your chance. Take the opportunity, do it,” she laughed.

Laughing, that's a good one! We're sure the judge will accept that.

Even if the whole thing was a "joke," Tozier-Robbins is just fine with being called a stalker.

“Yeah, sure. That would be a fair term to use. Tracking, stalking, whatever, for a couple weeks long,”
she said. “It wasn’t really stalking her, it was more plotting out how to get to her house.”

And the difference is...?

According to reports, Tozier-Robbins auditioned for American Idol in the past, and one time sang Brit's song "Everytime." Cue the creepy music.

Madonna falls off a horse



Madonna fell off her horse while horseback riding in the Hamptons this afternoon and was taken to a local hospital.

The Material Mom's injuries were not considered serious, the NY Post is reporting, but she was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

Madonna was at the home of photographer Steven Klein at the time, according to the paper. She was reportedly wearing full riding gear, including a helmet, when she fell.

Back in 2005, Madonna fell while riding in London on her birthday -- she suffered several broken bones.
