Tom Hardy and Chris Pine get into a brawl while filming scenes for This Means War on Thursday (November 4) in Vancouver, Canada.

The co-stars were involved in a fist fight for a scene and sported fake bruises and blood!

Earlier this week, Tom filmed a scene with Reese Witherspoon where they were kissing in a car.

In the film, Tom and Chris play best buds that go into a war against each other when they both fall for Reese’s character.

Nadine Coyle is downplaying her flop

Nadine Coyle has dismissed the modest sales of her debut single 'Insatiable'.

PA quotes the Girls Aloud singer as saying that she is more concerned about securing "a big show" to perform her new album of the same name.

She reportedly explained: "Realistically, now that it's a business and I'm heading up the label, you have to watch costs and stuff in marketing and manufacturing. You don't want to over-mix something when you don't sell hard copies of CDs.

Rachel Maddow Reacts to Keith Olbermann's Suspension

“Hey there — anything crazy happen where you work today?” said Rachel Maddow at the start of her MSNBC show on Friday night. She was referring, of course, to the suspension of her prime-time neighbor, Keith Olbermann, for making donations to three Democratic congressional candidates.

According to NBC News policy cited by MSNBC president Phil Griffin, its employees cannot do that unless they have prior permission. Griffin put out the usual boilerplate: that “these activities jeopardize his [...] standing as an impartial journalist because they may create the appearance of a conflict of interest.”

Come on: Does anyone think Keith Olbermann is an impartial journalist? His show Countdown is intended as a presentation of the day’s news as recalibrated from a liberal point of view; his “special comments” are editorials. Over on Fox News in the same time period, Bill O’Reilly is doing the same thing, but from a conservative point of view. Does the idea that a liberal or a conservative opinion-giver is also a money-giver to campaigns he or she endorses really sully your sense of journalistic integrity? We’re not talking about Brian Williams or Diane Sawyer or Katie Couric taking to the air with ringing hosannas for Michele Bachmann or Barney Frank, and writing them big checks. It’s Keith Olbermann. It’s MSNBC.

And as Rachel Maddow pointed out in the final segment of her show this night, Fox News show hosts such as Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee have donated money and appeared at fund-raisers for politicians whose politics they praise on their shows.

Mariah Carey Doesn’t Believe In Celebrating Her Birthday

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I think I’m gonna try this! Mariah Carey has sworn off having a birthday. Sounds like a wonderful idea to me! The pregnant singer told the Independent newspaper that;

“I don’t have birthdays. Literally. If anyone wished me happy birthday, I’d be like, ‘Who are you talking to?’ It’s about not being tied down to anything.”

“Honestly I don’t think I’m normal. I don’t think my life has been quite normal. I disregard time, you don’t see me wear a watch. I don’t adhere to modern rules or the normal rules of time.”

I wonder if Mariah understands that her entire life is about to change once she has that baby. I don’t know but she doesn’t strike me as the type of star who will let the Nannies take care of her baby – she seems like she’ll be more hands on to me. Does that sound crazy?

Lamebook legal battle

Lamebook, a parody site that makes fun of Facebook content, received a threat from the popular social networking site over trademark infringement and, in response, decided to preemptively sue Facebook first, according to a statement on their website.

"Unlike the Facebook website, the Lamebook website does not offer social-networking services or functionality to its users and, therefore, does not compete with Facebook," the lawsuit read, according to CNET. 
Lamebook is a blog that allows users to submit ridiculous status updates and pictures from Facebook.

On its front page, Lamebook said it is “fending off threats of trademark infringement litigation from the multi-billion dollar giant by preemptively filing suit” in Texas.
The logo for the site looks similar to the “Like” thumbs-up icon on Facebook News Feeds, but it is turned upside down. The “Lamebook” logo font and color scheme is similar to Facebook’s logo as well.

Techcrunch reported that Facebook first contacted Lamebook in March and told them to stop using the “Lamebook” moniker and change their website’s look.

Lamebook, which was created by three Texas-based designers, argued that their site’s look and logo are protected under the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

Jessica Simpson Reacts To Nick Lachey's Engagement

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo's engagement news on Thursday came as a surprise for everyone except ex-wife Jessica Simpson, who knew the day would come when the man she let get away would propose to another woman.

"Even though Jessica wants to be happy for Nick, this is a very difficult time for her," a friend of Simpson's tells me. "Nick was the love of her life then, man, and he was her first, so she will always have a very special place in her heart for him. She's deeply saddened."

The happy couple told Us Weekly that they were excited and incredibly happy about their engagement and look forward to a wonderful future together. Classy Nick got down on one knee and popped the question with an Asscher-cut diamond.

It was merely months after his ugly divorce from Jessica that Nick and Vanessa started dating in 2006, and although they briefly separated last summer, they got back together very quickly.

"Nick knows what it's like to lose someone that you love and wasn't going to let it happen again," a friend of the crooner tells me. "He never thought he would ever get married again after Jessica broke his heart. He never thought he would ever allow himself to be vulnerable again, but after dating for a long time he trusts Vanessa and knows she's the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with."

A Simpson insider tells me Jessica has yet to contact Nick to say congrats, and that it's possible it may stay that way for a while, for fear she may not come off as sincere.

"If you can't say something nice, it's better to say nothing at all."

Miley Cyrus -- Bilingual Underage Drinking ... Sorta

With her parents in the middle of a divorce, underage Disney pop princess Miley Cyrus, 17, threw back a Corona cerveza at a club in Madrid, Spain last night ... where the legal drinking age is technically 18 -- but there's a catch.

TMZ contacted several Spanish authorities who each confirmed the law ... and then made it clear that underage drinking is simply no big deal in their country.

One police officer told us ... people as young as 16 are cool to consume "certain" beverages in Madrid -- but the cop refused to explain what those beverages are. 

In that case: Salud!

Report: Cameron & A-Rod Split!

Well, it looks like Cameron Diaz and hunky Alex Rodriguez are back on the market! According to Life & Style magazine, the actress and the yummy New York Yankees slugger have called it quits after dating for seven months.

Katherine Jackson releases New, Free Michael song

Michael Jackson's mother has decided to let the world listen to a brand new unreleased MJ song -- and, taking a shot at Sony, one she claims is 100% authentic.

The song -- "Opis None" -- was pulled from the archives of ... a company in which Katherine Jackson is a partner. The company owns nearly 300 unreleased MJ tracks ... along with never-before-seen video and memorabilia.

Howard Mann, Katherine's partner in the company, tells TMZ, "In an effort to overcome the confusion as to the authenticity of the track the estate has recently released we want to give an actual authentic Michael Jackson track to the world ... for free."

Sony released a teaser of an upcoming MJ album, which various experts have authenticated as the real deal.

Disney was nice enough to invite Moviefone to a sneak peek of 'Tron: Legacy,' which is set to open in theaters in mid-December. Since the film is currently unfinished, Disney was only able to show us 23 minutes of the film; we saw snippets of several scenes from the movie.

David Duchovny says X-Files 3 being written

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

French website TVMag caught up with David Duchovny and asked him for an update on the third "X-Files" movie, which the actor previously said would focus on December 2012, an important date in the franchise.

"It is being written," said the actor, adding: "We're waiting for the green light from 20th Century Fox, which is a little disappointed by the relatively poor reception of the second film. The mistake, in my opinion, is that the writers strayed too far from the roots of the series. Plus the film was released in the summer. The third movie will be much closer to what the fans are used to, which is government conspiracies, etc..."

Both Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have expressed interest in returning for the third film, which is likely aiming to hit theaters at the end of 2012 to match up with the rumored "end of the world" storyline.

The 22-year-old, who has played Ron Weasley in the hit franchise since 2001, expressed his delight at finally having time to meet potential lovers since Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows finally wrapped in June.

Speaking to The Times, Grint confessed that he found it "quite difficult to sustain a relationship" because he was so busy.

"I went out with people, but never anything too serious. It wasn’t that easy. Now it’s something I’m really looking forward to," he said.

Despite the estimated $20 million he is believed to have earned from the role, Grint insisted that he will not be flaunting his wealth in order to attract women.

"I’ve never fancied that footballer lifestyle. I suppose I could live that kind of flash life. People stereotype child actors and kind of expect you to go off the rails a bit, be a bit crazy, but that’s not really happened yet," he said.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part One is due for release in UK and US cinemas on November 19.

The Playlist's Favourite Road Movies

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What is it about the road trip that lends itself so well to cinema? Looking down the entries to the genre, some of our very favorite films of all time qualify as part of one of the oldest tropes in the movies, and today’s release of Todd Phillips’ “Due Date” confirms, if confirmation was needed, that the style is still alive and kicking. It’s partly that the filmmaker gets to include as many cinematic locations as they can get their protagonists to visit, it’s partly that the nature of a chase, or a journey, is inherently filmic, and it’s partly that there are few better ways to create drama than sticking a group of characters together and forcing them to travel in the same direction.
In honor of Phillips’ movie (which as we’ll see, is dividing the staff here as much as it’s dividing critics around the world), we’ve picked over twenty of our favorite big-screen journeys. Not all are perfect, but all are worth adding to the Netflix queue.

Simon Pegg: 'I hate running zombies!'

Simon Pegg has said he is disappointed with the recent crop of zombie films – because the creatures move too fast. The actor, who has just released his memoir Nerd Do Well, told NME that he's been disappointed with a lot of recent zombie movies, because the undead are not moving right.

"In a lot of the most recent zombie films they’ve all been running around. I've got a long history with fast zombies – I hate them," he declared. "I'd like to see more slow zombies. I went to see Resident Evil 4: Afterlife and they're fast."

He added: "Zombies running is as bad as Daleks going upstairs. It's something very particular about zombies and not many people have got it right. Only really George Romero and, I like to think, us [in Shaun Of The Dead]."

Pegg explained that his complaint is based on what he believes it would be like to be one of the undead.

"The thing is, when you're a zombie you're dead. It's not like you've drunk a fucking can of Red Bull. You're dead, it hurts!" he joked. "You're slowly rotting away but you're still moving so it's going to be slightly debilitating, it's going to be worse than two pulled hamstrings. I like it as well because it makes you feel sorry for them. They don't have any moral agenda. They just do what they do and you can kind of feel sorry for them. That's why I find them so interesting."

Final nail in coffin for Net neutrality?

NEW YORK ( -- Before Tuesday's midterm elections, there were 95 House and Senate candidates who pledged support for Net neutrality, a bill that would force Internet providers to not charge users more for certain kinds of Web content.

All of them lost -- and that could mean the contentious proposal may now be all but dead.

The Federal Communications Commission tried to implement Net neutrality rules but got smacked down in April by a court ruling saying it did not have the authority to do so. As a result, it is preparing a proposal asking Congress to give it new authority to regulate broadband Internet service.

Did Ke$ha go too far referencing Jeffrey Dahmer in new song?

Jeffrey Dahmer, the serial killer who blooded his hands with the murder of 14 men has been dug up from his grave after 20 years in Kesha’s new album release, “Cannibal”. The upcoming album is due on the 22nd of November and the boisterous song featuring Dahmer is named ‘Kesha is a Feisty Man-eater’.

The song clips and videos are already making news. The lyrics are all rowdy and exemplify violence. The inclusion of Dahmer in her song has already raised eyebrows. How could a man who took pleasure in killing men be an elemental aspect of a track? With the lyrics so distrubing, it’s unclear what Kesha wanted to derive through this song. It has even found critics in her loyal fan base. People wanted to forget Jeffrey and Kesha’s act has revived the old memories. It’s time singers think twice on the subject they choose to highlight in their songs.

“Cannibal” is her second album released this year.

Dame Judi Dench is to share screen time with Johnny Depp again, having landed a cameo role in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, it has been reported.

The Oscar-winning actress was apparently asked by director Rob Marshall, who she worked with on Nine, if she would like to have a brief appearance in the opening scene of the fourth instalment of the swashbuckling franchise, reports the Daily Mail.

If her scenes make the final cut, Dame Judi plays a noblewoman who gets robbed by Captain Jack Sparrow, portrayed by Johnny, whom she previously starred with in Chocolat ten years ago.

The duo apparently enjoyed their reunion and were in fits of giggles most of the time.

Dame Judi has recently completed shooting scenes for My Week With Marilyn alongside Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh, and is in India filming John Madden's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with Maggie Smith.

Tangled Interviews: The Cast of "Tangled" Gets Unraveled

November 24th sees the release of Disney’s 50th full-length animated film Tangled, based loosely on the famous fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, and starring Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Ron Perlman, and a loaded cast of talented actors.

I had an opportunity to screen the film recently at the Disney AMC 12 at Disneyland in Anaheim, California — and sit down with cast members Zachary Levi (Chuck), Donna Murphy (The Fountain, The Nanny Diaries), as well as directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, to talk about the process of making an animated film, and a bit more.

Zachary Levi on the difference between being brought onto an animated film as opposed to live-action

Well, when my manager told me they were casting for a new Disney animated film, being a huge Dis-nerd, I was like, “Yes, please…whatever you can do, please get me into that.” I didn’t really think I had a chance, honestly. I mean, a lot of animated films these days have big A-list actors attached to them, so I didn’t expect to get the part. I came in, did my best, prepared a song — James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James, and they seemed to like that. They gave me the music for Tangled and had me sing that — and a couple of days later they called and let me know I had the job. It was totally surreal. It’s dream-come-true stuff.

The process is very interesting. I think Mandy [Moore, who plays Rapunzel] and I thought we’d be in this big recording booth together saying our lines, but we only saw each other once for a bit when we did that short duet. Otherwise, I didn’t work with her once. I did all of my dialogue by myself, she did all of hers alone — as far as I know, Mandy and Donna have still yet to meet, which I think is sort of fascinating.

It all took the better part of a year, and we recorded dialogue months apart.

Don't sing J. Lo's songs At An American Idol Audition

As if you weren’t taking your life in your hands by trying out in the first place, now J. Lo warns American Idol contestants against auditioning with one of her songs…or else. “It was cute, super entertaining and flattering, but no,” says Jennifer Lopez of fools who’ve already dared mangle classic gems like “Waiting For Tonight” with their braying donkey voices. We bet J.Lo must have been sweating in her Louboutins listening to her own songs, afraid that America would realize other people don’t need Auto-tune, eight producers, backing vocals and varsity lip synching skills to make most of her tunes listenable. Which has us thinking negotiations to hire J.Lo as a judge took so long because she kept demanding a trap-door that would open over a pit of ‘gators when the opening bars of “Jenny From The Block” started to play.

“They know we’re not out to cut them down or make a joke of them,” J.Lo says of the auditioning masses, “We’re trying to mentor them to the next step.” We’ve all seen the audition shows, Jenny; they are 95% about cutting delusional people down. Cutting people down and occasionally making fat guys in Princess Leia costumes get their backs waxed. It’s actually a blessing in disguise contestants can’t sing Jenny’s tunes. Humiliating yourself on national TV is one thing, but adding “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” to the mix? Sometimes you have to protect people from themselves.

127 Hours May Cause Fainting, Seizures, And Nausea

Usually when people say a movie made them vomit, it’s just a figure of speech. Sadly, for James Franco, these complaints seem scarily real. Apparently his latest film 127 Hours has been causing some audience members to become physically sick!

What on earth could have caused all the fuss? Well, 127 Hours tells the true story of rock-climber Aron Ralston, who was pinned beneath a bolder for five days in 2003. Eventually the climber was forced to amputate is own arm to survive. According to The Daily Mail, Franco’s performance as Ralston is graphic, to say the least. Reviewer Chris Tookey describes the scene in question as “the most harrowing bone-breaking and amputation scene in the history of cinema.” Move over, Requiem For A Dream.

The London Sun has reported that when the Danny Boyle directed feature closed the London Film Festival last week, medics had to be called to manage cases of nausea, fainting, and even seizures. “Boyle looked on as paramedics treated fans struggling to cope with the gruesome scenes.” Clearly this movie isn’t for the faint of heart.

It's the kind of music video you have to watch more than once to really understand, the kind of esoteric-but-expensive-looking clip you used to see all the time on MTV but haven't in years. Now, though, the network hopes to bring back the format in a big way, and "Pow Wow" is the first volley in what MTV hopes will be a groundbreaking new series of videos utilizing A-list talent that the channel is actually going to finance itself.

Entitled "Supervideo," the series is the brainchild of Mean magazine publisher Kashy Khaledi, a 33-year-old who grew up obsessed with music videos and thinks the recent, YouTube-aided rise of Lady Gaga means that it's high time for a revival of the format. "It says a lot," Khaledi told Vulture. "It says that there's a certain nostalgia, that there's a sort of excitement for the music video again."

I love LCD Soundsystem and I like music videos that are like films (not unnecessary Gaga videos but videos that are interesting).

Ke$ha On Cannibal And Her Haters


After making her album debut with January's Animal — which featured chart-toppers like "Tik Tok" and "Your Love Is My Drug" — Ke$ha is back on November 22 with a new nine-song deluxe EP, Cannibal. Vulture spoke with the 23-year-old recently about her haters, her singing voice, and whether she'll ever drop the dollar sign.

Why did you name your new album “Cannibal”?
I think that this year has been just totally insane, and I think that there’s been a little bit of self-devouring. It’s gotten a little intense, and I’m going a little crazy. And I just took Animal a little left, and a little darker, and just a little crazier.

Kanye West -- I 'Spawned' Taylor Swift's Success


Kanye West can't seem to avoid talking about Taylor Swift, as the rapper is now assuming partial credit for her being "the most popular artist in the world," according to his most recent interview with radio show Mojo in the Morning.

"I feel like when Taylor was getting all those magazine covers, she was all good then. I feel completely empathetic and sympathize with that moment of her feeling bad, that spawned her to have one million magazine covers and be the most popular artist in the world, but in that moment of her feeling bad, I do feel bad about being the cause of that."

In related Kanye news, a federal judge dismissed a $1,000,000 lawsuit from 2005 by rap kingpin Suge Knight that blamed the "Runaway" hit-maker for not providing enough security at a party he hosted at which Suge was shot in the leg. The ruling declared that West could not have predicted a shooting would occur, and that the event was merely unfortunate.

Oscar Promo Is for the a Good Way

It’s not useful, like the screeners that arrive in the mail every few days. Or informative, like the lists of awards-season screenings detailing all the many ways I can catch up with each and every contender. Or fancy like the “How to Train Your Dragon” coffee table book, or useful like the “Tron” USB hub, or cute like the stuffed Woody from “Toy Story 3.”

The envelope that arrived on Wednesday in a plain black envelope was, instead, odd and minimalist and at least initially inexplicable.

It appeared to be handwritten, from a “Nina Sayers” with a Beverly Hills post office box.

If you want to discuss spoilers for the film my only request is that you put "SPOILERS" in the subject of your comment so people who want to remain unspoiled (like me) don't accidentally read it! Thanks! :)
