A Russian reporter at a press junket attached to the Russian premiere of Friends With Benefits had the gall to ask Justin Timberlake “why movies” (in lieu of, say, music). A delay in translation kept Timberlake from responding, so his co-star Mila Kunis jumped in to deliver a verbal smackdown in the reporter’s native tongue.
“Why movies? Why not?” Kunis, who moved to California from Ukraine at age 7, testily replied. “What kind of question is that? Why are you here?”

EDIT - a very helpful contribution from Ukrainian-born ONTDer myownjinx :
The reporter asked why Justin was doing movies. Mila's reply was because he can and because he enjoys what he does, so why not. The reporter then hinted that Hollywood is a mindless industry (popular Russian opinion...I myself will be working in entertainment and many of my friends and family who live in Ukraine share the mentality that Hollywood is brainless, useless, etc) and fished for a reply that would consist of Mila defending the industry. Instead, Mila asked THEN WHY ARE YOU HERE? As in, your reporter job isn't exactly benefiting third world countries. All in all it was clever, not bitchy of her to say that considering the reporter's question.

The Academy's Board of Governors has named the first Oscar recipients of 2011 -- and the honorees at the third annual Governors Awards dinner and ceremony on Saturday, November 12 will include an actor, a makeup artist and a one-woman showbiz colossus who will be taking home the first Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award bestowed by the Academy in three years.
Actor Jones and makeup artist Smith, meanwhile, will receive honorary Academy Awards. The Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, which is also one of the Governors Awards, will not be handed out this year.
Smith is the only honoree to have won a competitive Oscar, for "Amadeus" in 1984. He was also nominated for "Dad" in 1989.
Winfrey and Jones were both nominated for acting awards -- Winfrey as Best Supporting Actress for "The Color Purple" in 1985, Jones as Best Actor for "The Great White Hope" in 1970 -- but neither won.
The choices were made at Tuesday night's board meeting, and announced by the Academy after the recipients had been notified.
This is the first year since the Governors Awards were moved to a separate show that the governors have selected three recipients, rather than the maximum of four.

Settling into the single life after recently parting ways with Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgard was spotted taking a stroll through SoHo in New York City on Tuesday (August 2).
The Eric Northman actor looked his usual studly self in a plain white t-shirt and jeans as he chatted on his cell phone during the midday Big Apple outing.
As previously reported by GossipCenter, Mr Skarsgard is fresh off of breaking up with Miss Bosworth - with sources telling that the two were able to separate on amicable terms, as an Us magazine insider dished, "It was very mutual."
Alexander is said to have had no problems adjusting to bachelor status, as another person in the know said, "He's single and he is loving the attention!"( Collapse )

The news is breaking everywhere! Janet Jackson's getting married, or so they say. Miss Janet's been in a relationship with billionaire, Wissam Al Moolah, since 2009 or Post-the "troll" (jj fans will understand this). Wissam seems like a good fit for Janet. First off, he's loaded, he has no interest in being in the music industry, he won't be pimping her out to save his own producing career, nor will he be trying to get a guest spot on all her songs, and when asked about his relationship with Janet last year, he said he wouldn't discuss it. Many have commented how much Wissam resembles Janet's last husband, Rene Elizondo Jr. If the news is true, I'm happy for her. This would be Janet's third try at marriage. In these hard economic times a little security is in order. If she won't marry him, we will (in NY)!

**All fixed now. lj cut was there when I submitted the post. sorry bb's :)
Jason Bateman was witty and smart, as usual, on "The Daily Show" last night -- he would probably have been even better if an oddly off-rhythm Jon Stewart hadn't frequently cut into Bateman's smooth line of patter.(IDK who this bitch is, but he had better back the fuck off of bb Jon) I had to wonder all over again why our comedy writers and directors can't provide our best farceurs with movies worthy of their talents. With the right roles, Bateman could be a comic superstar -- maybe even a comic and dramatic superstar, given his superb appearance in the political thriller "State of Play." But his list of credits is a roller-coaster ride between half-good hits like "Hancock" and abominations like "Couples Retreat." The clip from "The Change-Up" didn't convince me to give it a try.

Rihanna likes to be in control. So much so that her management has given her an easy way to cut our interview short: Our chat is to take place in an SUV on the way from the Glamour shoot to her apartment, a short drive away. But she keeps talking—candidly and often hilariously, and instead of stopping at her front door, she has her driver circle the block again and again, and we talk more. What comes through more than anything is a tale of transformation: In February 2009, Rihanna endured the abuse of Chris Brown and the subsequent gossip frenzy. It was painful, she tells me, to lose control of her story and image that way; determined not to let that happen again, she has since reemerged as the architect of her own fascinating comeback. On her self-revealing albums Rated R and Loud, on Twitter (and, as of mid-July, the most popular female star on Facebook), in dramatic fashion choices and in interviews like this one, Rihanna has reinvented herself by becoming more, well, herself. “My whole life changed a couple years ago. That’s when I decided to let my guard down completely,” she says, sipping a Corona as the city scrolls by her tinted window. “There’s freedom in honesty. If you just face it today, tomorrow you can move on to something else.” Here’s Rihanna, very honestly.

Adam Scott: Missing Adult Swim 'Party Down' Reunion 'Broke My Heart'
The good news: The "Party Down" reunion is being televised August 25 on Adult Swim's "Childrens Hospital." The bad: Adam Scott isn't part of it.
Adult Swim allowed me an early peek at the episode -- shockingly titled "Party Down" -- and I can attest that the reunion of the cult 2009-10 sitcom's cast, while brief, is awesome in every way such things can be awesome.

Kendra Wilkinson has slammed Crystal Harris as "trash".
The ex girlfriend of Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner - who has a 19-month-old son with NFL star husband Hank Baskett - has lashed out at Hugh's former fiancée Crystal for claiming Hugh was not good in bed.
Kendra told Life & Style: "I thought she'd be classy about things [following their split]. But it's not classy how she's opening her mouth the way she is.
"She should've kept her mouth shut, been a bigger person and just walked away. She looks like trash."
Crystal, 25, ditched the 85-year-old lothario less than a week before their planned wedding in June and has since claimed their lovemaking lasted "like two seconds".
She added: "Then it was just over it. I was like, 'Ahhhh.' I was over it I just like, walked away. I'm not turned on by Hef, sorry. He doesn't really take off his clothes. I've never seen Hef naked."
However, Kendra thinks Hugh should put the damaging revelations behind him and move on with his life.
She added: "Hef's been Hef for how many years now? He needs to move on and keep living his life!"
A storm has destroyed half of an oak tree that played a key role near the end of The Shawshank Redemption.
The 1994 film was filmed in and around an old prison in Mansfield in north-central Ohio, and the tree is where Morgan Freeman's character finds money and a note left by Tim Robbins' character.
Malabar Farm State Park manager Louis Andres tells the News Journal of Mansfield that the tree was hit on Friday by straight-line winds that split it down its rotted middle and took out one side. The tree is on private farmland adjacent to the park.
Local convention and visitors bureau president Lee Tasseff calls the damage "tragic". He says the oak is a sentimental stop for "Shawshank" fans drawn to the film's locations.
Some trees aren't meant to be caged. Their leaves are just too bright.

Superman will be taking orders from Laurence Fishburne.
Laurence has been cast as The Daily Planet’s editor-in-chief Perry White in “Man of Steel,” Entertainment Weekly reported.
In previous versions of “Superman,” the character has been portrayed as a tough and traditional newspaperman who is always looking to break a big story.
Jackie Cooper played Perry during the Christopher Reeve films and most recently Frank Langella played the role in 2006’s “Superman Returns” with Brandon Routh.
Laurence joins Henry Cavill, who is playing Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams who has signed on to play Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner who will play Martha and Jonathan Kent.
Additionally, Russell Crowe is reportedly in final negotiations to play Superman’s biological father, Jor-El. ewwww

Some of Hollywood's leading YBF actors have teamed up to star in the new film Red Tails about Tuskegee airmen during World War II. Watch the trailer and see Ne-Yo, Tristan Wilds, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard in action inside...
Many of Hollywood's leading (and best looking) actors are starring in the much talked about Red Tails, a film set in 1944 during World War II about the Tuskegee Airmen. And our homie Wilson over at BlackFilm.com got the latest scoop.
The film, directed by powerhouse George Lucas (who is funding this out of his own pockets), touches on the two wars at once – one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home.

I think this isn't a film Hollywood is excited about because Lucas and the actors filmed this movie back in 2009, I don't know if George Lucas usually takes three years in post production and has to finance it himself.
But Lindsay Lohan's role in "Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father" appeared to be in doubt after producers said she had not officially signed onto the movie and they were still in talks with her.
Foster, 29, best known for roles in "The Messenger" and 3:10 to Yuma", will play John Gotti Jr. opposite John Travolta, who has already been cast as the late head of New York's powerful Gambino family, John Gotti.
Lohan's casting as Kim Gotti, the wife of John Gotti Jr, was announced in May. But Steve Honig, a spokesman for both Fiore Films and Lohan said on Tuesday that "the producers of the film and Lindsay's representation have not yet worked out an agreement for her to appear in the movie. At this point, we cannot provide a definitive answer either way.
"Fiore is still very much in talks with Lindsay Lohan to play the role of Kim Gotti," Honig added.
Lohan, 25, whose career has been derailed by repeated trips to jail and rehab since 2007, has not had a movie role since the low-budget 2010 release "Machete." The Gotti film, because of its high profile and Lohan's ongoing recovery, was thought to be a positive step in her return to Hollywood's A-list.

It’s official: Broadway’s new Funny Girl will be played by Six Feet Under star Lauren Ambrose. After speculation earlier this week that Ambrose was in talks for the role, the production confirmed the casting with a release detailing how the revival will open for a short run at Los Angeles’ Ahmanson Theatre from Jan. 15 through Feb. 26 before hitting Broadway in New York City in the spring of 2012. Ambrose will, of course, be taking on the iconic role of Fanny Brice, a character Barbra Streisand made famous in the show’s original Broadway run, beginning in 1964 for 1,348 performances, as well as the 1968 movie version.
“Let’s face it, there is obviously more than a lot to live up to playing Fanny Brice, but I am humbled and thrilled by the opportunity to be a part of this revival,” Ambrose said in a statement. “The character is complex, the music beautiful and challenging. I can’t wait to get into that rehearsal room with the team [director] Bart [Sher] is assembling — wish we could start tomorrow!”

Kelly told People last year that Matthew and her have bonded because of each recently going through a divorce:
“He’s going through his own thing, I’m going through my own thing – we kind of just support each other. We both have small children that we really love, so we both just talk about them the whole time. Matthew was saying his daughter, [Aven Angelica, 1], just took her first steps the other day, and he was kind of teary-eyed, it was just beautiful.”

'What the accident basically taught me is, in life, you have to count your blessings,' he says during 'MTV First: Sean Kingston.'
Sean Kingston sat down with MTV News on Tuesday night (August 2) and opened up for the first time about the jet-ski accident that landed him in the hospital. During "MTV First: Sean Kingston," the singer spoke candidly with Sway Calloway at his house in Miami about the day that changed his life forever, letting fans know that months after his jet ski crashed into a bridge near his home in Florida, he's now back and better than ever.
"I'm doing good. I'm feeling great. I'm excited. I'm happy," he said. "A lot of people don't know it was a deeper situation. I had open heart surgery and I had two other surgeries; it was a life-or-death situation."
Kingston — the Jamaican-American singer who broke onto the scene with the "Stand by Me"-sampling song "Beautiful Girls" and scored another hit with the Justin Bieber collabo "Eenie Meenie" last year — was rushed to the hospital May 29 after a jet-ski crash. He explained to Sway that he was going about 35 miles an hour when he miscalculated how high the tide had risen and collided with a bridge.
The singer revealed for the first time in the sit-down that just as he was being released from the hospital for injuries related to the crash, he was rushed into surgery to deal with a newly discovered heart condition. "They were gonna send me home, but then I had felt a pain in my left chest, and I told my mom," he explained. "They rushed me and they did a lot of scans on me, [and] they said I couldn't leave."
It was discovered that blood had filled up in his chest and his aorta was torn. He went into surgery several times to fix the condition, knowing that the risks were high, but he survived, and now he's focused on the positive. "I'm 100 percent right now," he said. "I've been in the house chilling, about to start work on my new album. I got L.A. Reid now as my new president. I got a story to tell now."
Kingston isn't taking his new lease on life lightly. "What the accident basically taught me is, in life, you have to count your blessings," he said. "You just got to keep God present at all times and think about the consequences."
During the chat, Kingston opened up about the details of the accident, talked about the support he's received from celebrity pals like Justin Bieber and Chris Brown, his new music and finally getting the chance to meet the man who saved him after he crashed. MTV News will be rolling out more from the interview with Kingston, who thanked his fans for all their support after the accident.

Okay, we know you're getting tired of hearing about Kim's wedding (I have to admit, so am I). But this is actually kind of cute...
Only 1,000 bottles have been produced—one for Kim to wear on her wedding day, 200 for her bridal shower, and 799 available for purchase. The cost? $100.
To celebrate her upcoming nuptials, Kim Kardashian has released a limited-edition fragrance, Love by Kim Kardashian.
It's described as a "soft, feminine scent" that "opens with top notes of sparkling red currant, pink freesia and star jasmine. A heart of French mimosa, rare Egyptian tuberose, and rose absolute orpur eases into a rich background of sensual musk, creamy sandalwood, and orris butter".
“I used to think falling in love was the most incredible feeling,” said Kim Kardashian in a release. “But now I see there’s nothing more special than the enduring beauty of building a life with your other half and watching your love grow, each and every day.”
The best part is the packaging. The bottle itself is reminiscent of an engagement ring and is embellished with 450 sparkly stones. It's presented in a case inspired by a ring box. And each bottle numbered and signed by Kim.

Yep, it’s that time of year again: Rise of the Planet of Film Festivals. TIFF and Venice already announced their first wave of titles last week, but don’t fret, movie lovers, as today the good folks in Toronto have opened the curtain on their next batch of titles, focusing heavily on their Midnight Madness and documentary slate of programming. So let’s get to the films you should be seeing, shall we?
First up, Werner Herzog will return to Toronto for the world premiere of this latest documentary, “Into the Abyss,” focusing on the perpetrators of a triple homicide, including a 28-year-old who is on death row and scheduled to die within eight days of talking to the director. Meanwhile, Morgan Spurlock will bring the geeks out with “Comic-Con: Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope,” his exploration of the events that take place every year in San Diego. Alex Gibney continues to churn out fascinating tales, and his latest is no different, with “The Last Gladiators” focusing on famed hockey enforcer Chris “Knuckles” Nilan and his journey back into regular life after retiring from the ice. Wim Wenders will make you put on 3D glasses for his dance doc “Pina,” Ron Fricke returns nearly two decades after “Baraka” with “Samsara,” Nick Broomfield will stir the pot with “Sarah Palin – You Betcha!,” and “Helvetica” and “Objectified” helmer Gary Hustwit continues his design oriented flicks with “Urbanized” focusing on, you guessed it, urban design.
Once you’ve had enough of films filling your brain with information, the Midnight Madness will provide some relief. Ben Wheatley‘s SXSW sensation “Kill List”—which made one of our team physically ill—will certainly be a big ticket item, while Bobcat Goldthwait will continue his strain of very dark comedy with “God Bless America.” International horror film buffs will get world premieres of buzzed-about French flicks “The Incident” and “Livid” while Douglas Aarniokoski‘s “The Day” is already earning some attention.
Other films to keep an eye on? Cannes Critics Week chiller “Snowtown,” the relentless and uncompromising tale of an Aussie serial killer that scared off audiences in droves; Joachim Trier‘s followup to “Reprise,” the melancholy “Oslo, August 31” is worth a peek; and Pen-ek Ratanaruang returns with “Headshot.” Check out the full slate over at TIFF.

Ryan, is that you? Crazy, Stupid, Love star Ryan Gosling showed off a brand-new do in upstate New York on Wednesday, a major change from the light brown hue he’s been sporting lately. But just like Ben Affleck’s new cut, Gosling’s change is only temporary: according to reports, it’s for his new film, The Place Beyond the Pines. In fact, the actor wasn’t quite looking like himself on Wednesday, not only because of the hair, but thanks to a series of tattoos — including one on his face. However, the star is so adorable — hello, he brought his dog to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon – that we love him no matter how he looks. Especially if he’s willing to give us a lift.
With the epic conclusion to the eight-film franchise passing $1 billion at the box office, Warner Bros now has their eyes on an even bigger prize. According to Variety, the studio is going to make a big push for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II to snag a Best Picture nomination. Apparently WB is prepared to "absolutely, hands-down, across-the-board" launch a big Oscar campaign for the film to be considered for the honor. The idea is that such a reward would moreso stand as praise for the entire franchise, a concept that is believed to have helped Return of the King at the Academy Awards back in 2003.

The course - described as "very tough, physically and mentally" - has been taken by other Royals as well as politicians and people working in dangerous countries.
It teaches key survival skills such as noticing anything unusual in routine surroundings, how to react when attacked and how to build a relationship with hostage-takers.
Other elements include driving under pressure and passing on coded messages.

At the rate we're going, Adele's monster "21" album might be at the top of the chart come Christmastime. The set is poised to return to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week for a 12th non-consecutive frame. The album, which is No. 2 this week, hasn't been absent from the top three rungs on the list since it debuted at No. 1 on the March 12 chart -- 22 weeks ago.
If "21" grabs a 12th week at No. 1, it would mark the most weeks atop the chart since Santana's "Supernatural" also racked a dozen frames at No. 1 in late 1999 and early 2000.
Industry sources project that none of yesterday's (Aug. 2) new releases pose a threat to Adele's ascension. However, Eric Church's current No. 1, "Chief," could hold on to the top slot if the week shakes out in his favor.
The highest debut next week will likely be Trace Adkins' "Proud to Be Here," which is on track to sell around 45,000 copies by week's end on Sunday, Aug. 7. The country singer's last studio set, 2010's "Cowboy's Back in Town," debuted and peaked at No. 5 off a 50,000 start according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Also aiming for the top 10 are the soundtrack to the Nickelodeon TV show "Victorious" and Mat Kearney's "Young Love." The Nick set may move around 40,000 while "Young" could possibly shift 35,000 to 40,000.
13-year old Greyson Chance's debut set, "Hold On 'Til the Night," might sell around 20,000 copies for perhaps a top 15 arrival.

“It’s a killer track and is bound to be a massive worldwide hit if released as a single, which is exactly what Christina is hoping for. She can’t wait to release the record and prove all her critics wrong”.
It has also been reported that Christina is working with producer William Orbit on the record, which is expected to be released in 2012.

In my best times V-Generations.com reached probably 250 readers in a month. Now I have 26.000+ readers within 2 days. Why? Hollywood gossip. Some say that I am a sad individual for exposing Ellen Page and maybe they are right, but do you want to know what’s really sad? It is sad that a story about the famine in Somalia hardly interests anyone while the outing of an actor causes a conscious meltdown for many.
Here are some hard-hitting truths for ONTD readers: Santa Clause doesn’t exist, Pop musicians don’t write their own songs, Reality-TV isn’t really ‘real’ and Hollywood actors are not the do-gooders they pretend to be.
Expect more revelations about your favorite stars. ONTD, are you already “shaking and crying”?

Just three days after promoting their 2012 movie The Amazing Spider-Man at Comic Con in San Diego, Andrew Garfield, 27, and Emma Stone, 22, cozied up in a corner banquette at a West Hollywood hotel bar on July 25. But their fun didn't end there: a source tells Us Weekly they spent the night together, too!

It's Us Weekly, so this may well be completely made up. I'm in favour of two good looking, neat people like these two having sex tbh.
When Mike Judge presented the new Beavis and Butt-Head to the Television Critics Association, I raised my hand with lots of questions. He clarified that there’s no mention of the time that’s passed, they’re still watching music videos, the boys still look crappy in hi-def and they have still never scored.
There was still so much more to discuss though. Judge had said that he’s having Beavis and Butt-Head review movies, Siskel and Ebert style.
Q: What movies are you having Beavis and Butt-Head review?
Mike Judge: So far I’ve just done one, Human Centipede.
Q: Oh my God, that’s perfect!
MJ: Yeah, when I saw it, in fact that gave me the idea, I’ve got to have Beavis and Butt-Head review this. That’s the only one I’ve done so far and one of the things I have them do after they show a clip of the movie is I have them talking about how there’s going to be a Sex and the City 3, why don’t they combine it with a Human Centipede sequel and just have those girls all get lost in the forest, the doctor strings them all together and you get two sequels in one. Since I’ve done that, now there is a sequel to Human Centipede. It’ll still play hopefully. That’s part of the reason we’re waiting is we want to do a movie that’s just coming out. We have this animated set of them on a Siskel and Ebert like set.
Q: Are there studios that would let you see a rough cut to start writing and time it to a release of a movie?
MJ: Yeah, we’ve talked about doing that. Luckily, with that kind of stuff, it’s what we call repurposing, same with the videos. So it’s a little quicker turnaround.
Q: Would a mainstream studio allow you to Beavis and Butt-Head one of their films?
MJ: Yeah, they would but as far as putting it on DVD down the road, probably not. I think you have to go to the actors and stuff like that to do it.
Q: Well, you’re part of the Paramount family. You could at least coordinate with them.
MJ: Yeah, I think we’re going to do it for some. If it doesn’t end up being sellable on DVD and Netlflix then we’ll just do it for the time being just for fun.
Beavis and Butt-head will return on MTV October 27, 2011

Scarlett Johansson Wants Ryan Reynolds Back! And Sources Say He Still Loves Her!
Ryan Reynolds‘ flirty behavior with Sandra Bullock at the premiere of The Change-Up must have caught the attention of ex-wife Scarlett Johansson, because Us Weekly is reporting that she’s determined to win him back! “She has been calling him incessantly trying to see him, trying to meet up with him or see how he is,” a source tells the mag.
The once-hot couple has been spotted having dinner together several times, most recently at Little Dom’s in Los Angeles on July 8, but don’t expect them to officially get back together anytime soon.
Even though a friend close to Ryan and Scarlett says that “he still loves her,” he’s keeping her at arm’s length because “he does not want to get played again. … He feels she just quit on him.”
Once of the biggest strains on their relationship was that Scarlett didn’t want to have a baby, but now she’s suddenly changing her tune.
“She’s doing everything possible to get him to take her back,” another source tells Star magazine. “Even saying she’s ready to have a baby.”
i doubt the baby issue thing because she has always talked about how she wants to have kids and a family but anyway, get back together already"
Previously undiscovered footage from Alfred Hitchcock’s first film has been discovered in the New Zealand Film Archive.
The first 30 minutes of 1923 silent film The White Shadow, considered to be Hitchcock’s first credit, was discovered in a collection of unidentified American nitrate prints that had been kept at the New Zealand archive since 1989.
Hitchcock was 24 when the film was made and was the writer, assistant director, editor and production designer on the melodrama, which starred Clive Brook and Betty Compson as twin sisters – one good and one evil.
Only the first three reels of the six-reel film have been found; no other copy is known to exist.
The White Shadow was among the many silent-era movies salvaged by New Zealand projectionist and collector Jack Murtagh. After his death in 1989, the highly flammable nitrate prints were sent to the Film Archive for safekeeping by his grandson Tony Osborne.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling broke down in tears as a cherished family story was punctured during filming on the new series of Who Do You Think You Are?
The famously private writer said the early death of her mother was one of the reasons she agreed to go through the "very emotional experience" of researching her family tree for the BBC One show.
She told the Radio Times her mother Anne, who died aged 45 in 1990, was "very interested" in her French roots but never got the chance to explore them.
Rowling said: "So a huge motivation in looking into my family history is my mother. It's very much bound up in that loss."

The official concept arts of The Jungle Movie were released by its artist Roger Luan on his blog site, which he recently shut down. The Jungle Movie was supposed to be released as the final theatrical feature of the series. However, Nickelodeon executives and the show's creator Craig Barlett had some disagreements, which caused the cancellation of the project.
Nickelodeon and Paramount currently own the rights to the film and the story. Drafts of the movie were written and developed between 1998-2001 and it's rumored the script is in its 6th or 7th draft, but there are no plans to put it into production.
Craig Bartlett still does not want to reveal the plot line completely, but much of it has leaked through his chats. There is a slim chance the story may be released as a book or a graphic novel sometime in the future. However, dedicated fans are hoping that it would be released in theaters instead. They set up a Facebook group called Save The Jungle Movie where they need at least 100,000 people to join. www.facebook.com/groups/173405088633/

Bubba Smith, 10-year NFL veteran and film actor of Police Academy fame, was found dead Wednesday at his home in Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times.
He was 66.
Police had not determined a cause of death by Wednesday night, but officials believe he died of natural causes, according to The Times.
Smith spent his career as a defensive lineman with the Baltimore Colts, Oakland Raiders and Houston Oilers, making the Pro Bowl as a Colt in 1970 and '71.
Known for his imposing 6-foot-7 frame, Smith retired from the NFL in 1976 after two seasons with the Oilers, turning his focus to acting.
He got his start with a series of popular Miller Lite television ads, including one in which he tore the top off a beer can with ease.
Smith's second career was highlighted by his role in the Police Academy film franchise, launched in 1984 starring Smith as Moses Hightower. He would appear in all but one of the six sequels.
His television and film career spanned from 1978-2010 and included appearances in television series' such as Good Times and Charlie's Angels.
As a collegian at Michigan State University, Smith was an All-American lineman in 1965 and '66, celebrated by fans with the chant "Kill Bubba, Kill."
He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1988 and Michigan State retired his No. 95 jersey in 2006.
Two seasons after the Colts made Smith the No. 1 pick of the 1967 NFL Draft, he was depicted in one of the indelible images of the burgeoning league, leaping at a poised Joe Namath during Super Bowl III.
The Colts would lose that Super Bowl, cemented in NFL lore by Joe Namath's pregame guarantee. But two years later, Smith and the Colts went on to win Super Bowl V, defeating the Dallas Cowboys 16-13.
The 35-year-old actress delivered her cake, and was spotted later in the day running some errands.
It was recently reported that Reese has signed on to star in Disney’s Wish List! The romantic comedy is about a girl who wishes in a wishing well, but her wishes do not come true until 25 years later.
Reese also recently returned from her honeymoon with her new hubby Jim Toth. The two were spotted shopping in Paris, and even got caught in the rain!

Sad news, everybody. The cast of Jersey Shore moved out of the beach house for the last time yesterday leaving a cannoli-shaped hole in our hearts that can only be filled with tanning oil and the clap. Fortunately, Deena Cortese saw fit to bless us one last time with the majestic brown canyon she calls an ass crack. Also, Snooki wore a giant rabbit mask over her head the whole time which I’m sure is related somehow. “So at least half a pickle’s up there? I’m in.”

“That’s fine that he wasn’t, he’s good. Whatever, he’s a tiger!”
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com the 16-year-old bride’s mother Krista Stodden revealed that her daughter, who was a virgin when she got married, is practicing safe sex and isn’t planning on having a baby right away.
“She’s making sure as much as she can at this time that it isn’t happening,” Krista said about her newlywed daughter, who tied the knot Hutchison in Las Vegas in May.
“She’s on birth control because she would prefer to wait for children,” her mom said. Her husband might have a different idea though. “I think Doug would love to have children, but Courtney wants to wait a few years.”
“Courtney wants to work on her career,” Krista explained, but knowing that accidents do happen, she said it would be a joy to the family if her daughter did fall pregnant.
“If something happens we do not believe in abortion, so if God blesses them that would be ok, but they’re not trying for a baby now,” she says.
As a would be doting grandmother, Krista said that if Courtney and Doug did have children: “the baby would be so creative. Doug is brilliant, so creative and they both would pass on so many creative genes.”
Meanwhile, married life is treating her daughter well Krista told RadarOnline.com. “Doug and Courtney have a lot of exciting projects they’re working on and their home life is wonderful.
“Courtney never showed any interest in cooking or cleaning, she always wanted a career so Doug takes care of all of the housework. He’s so sweet he’s teaching her how to boil an egg!”
Lindsay Lohan is back to what she does best, partying late and falling over in public, according to spies at LA's Chateau Marmont.
Fresh off her all-weekend party with Paris Hilton, La Lohan was back in vintage form at the celebrity hangout on Monday night.
A witness told us, "She was in the bathroom and told her friend, 'Oh, my God, do you think everyone saw me fall flat on my face? I hate myself.' Then she stepped on my foot so hard."
The spy said Lohan, in a short, black romper suit and strappy heels with her hair in a bun, "looked wobbly, and on her way back to her table outside stumbled over again. The next time she got up, hotel security had to give her a hand."
Lohan partied in front of more demure stars including Olivia Wilde and Emily Blunt, who remained low-key -- at separate tables -- and left at about 1 a.m. with her friends.
Lohan's rep fired back, "As usual, a pack of lies from people with nothing better to do with their lives than make up stories about a famous person."

What do y'all think? I feel most are like "why in the hell are they even doing this?"
Both "Moriarty" and "NEXT YEAR" were quickly turning up on trending topics on Twitter for the UK area.
Sue Vertue, producer of Sherlock, replied to the outrage via her Twitter, saying:
As the team is currently still filming, the delay doesn't come as a big surprise but it's still bad news for fans who have waited for the conclusion of the famous cliffhanger of season one for over a year now.
More waiting? Any recommendations of what to watch in the meantime, ONTD?
Alfonso Cuarón’s 3D Sci-Fi Epic ‘Gravity’ Dated For November 21, 2012
Warner Bros. continues to get bold with it getting its Oscar dance cards in place. 2011 is filled with Stephen Daldry‘s “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” and Clint Eastwood‘s “J. Edgar” starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Now the studio is eyeing 2012, and surprisingly, has thrown a sci-fi genre picture into Academy contention.
”Children Of Men” helmer Alfonso Cuarón‘s 3D sci-fi epic “Gravity” starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock just started filming in June, and WB has already scheduled the film for a November 21, 2012 release date. The move is curious considering early versions of the script, dated late 2009, written by Cuaron, his son Jonás and filmmaker Rodrigo Garcia (”Mother And Child”) displayed a fairly straight-forward action-sci-fi picture, albeit utilizing long stretches of silence. However, considering its lengthy gestating period, and its new Oscar-centric date, it’s feasible the the screenplay has gone through a significant overhaul, or there is much more riding beneath the surface than we expected.
“Gravity” ping-ponged through the trades in 2010. Angelina Jolie was first attached and gave the project its forward momentum. She then bailed and actresses from Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Natalie Portman were loosely associated and/or rumored for the role before “The Blind Side” star Sandra Bullock stepped in. The picture seemed to be in jeopardy several times over the last 12 months, and seemed nearly doomed when co-star Robert Downey Jr. had to exit the project to film “The Avengers,” but Clooney came aboard to rescue it in late 2010.
So why all the consternation over the casting? The film is ambitious, mostly one character piece set on a remote space station. During an expedition outside the station, only the team leader (Clooney) and his female colleague (Bullock) are left alive after an exploding satellite kills the other members of the crew, setting off a desperate race home for the latter to get to her child. Having read the script, it’s mostly a one-woman show, and with hard sci-fi action pics already a tough sell, one led by a woman adds an even trickier equation to the mix; female led actioners are also difficult to market. But you don’t get stars much bigger than Bullock and Clooney (though his role will be relatively small) and WB are clearly believers. We’re just glad after so much drama, this one is finally and firmly moving forward.
