Who should be his first victim?
Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, star of the original The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, graces the cover of this month’s edition of Blackbook and talks about Hollywood, the nomadic life of an international "it girl," and her transformation into the punked-out Dragon Girl.
On playing the "original" Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish trilogy:
“I felt like she lived in me,” Rapace says of her motorcycle-riding, vengeance-seeking alter ego. “My Lisbeth was my Lisbeth. I gave her my life and my soul for one-and-a-half years, and then I was finished.” She sighs, her face double-framed by her living room door and my computer screen. “I’m so done with her.”
After wrapping the final film in the Dragon Tattoo trilogy:
“My whole body was just kind of throwing Lisbeth out of me,” she says. Rapace spent the next week feeling traumatized and disembodied, her face still full of holes, mohawk collapsed. “I was like, I don’t know who I am anymore!” she adds, pushing a few strands of hair away from her face to reveal a pair of earrings. They are long, chainlike, and affixed to her lobes with golden talons. “It’s almost like you’re coming out of a…” She struggles for a moment, trying to articulate what it’s like to exorcize a fictional character. The earrings twinkle. “It’s like you’ve loaned yourself to someone else.”
On the "new" Lisbeth Salander, played by 25-year-old Rooney Mara:
“I’m pretty sure that they will do something completely different with her,” she says.
Guy Ritchie on Noomi, after directing her in the upcoming 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel:
“I like Noomi because she’s ballsy,” says Guy Ritchie. “She’s smart and committed to doing the best she can. She’s always full of ideas.”
I loved Noomi in the Swedish trilogy. She did great. I can't imagine someone else playing Lisbeth, although I'm ecstatic to see the new film!

Final Fantasy XIII might have sold millions of copies, but Square Enix will never get to shake the feeling that Final Fantasy fans are upset with the direction the series has taken. But with a sequel in the works, and strong plan to rebuild Final Fantasy XIV, could they dig themselves out of their slump? Maybe some mature themes could help.
Compromising photographs and a case of blackmail threaten the very heart of the British establishment, but for Sherlock and John the game is on in more ways than one as they find themselves battling international terrorism, rogue CIA agents, and a secret conspiracy involving the British government. But this case will cast a darker shadow over their lives than they could ever imagine, as the great detective begins a long duel of wits with an antagonist as cold and ruthless and brilliant as himself: to Sherlock Holmes, Irene Adler will always be the woman.

In case you were wondering how else Glee could ruin pop culture impact your brain, have we got some Glee spoilers news for you! Unclench your jaw and get ready for it to drop: your favorite musical show is taking on the one and only Michael Jackson!
That's right- TVGuide is officially reporting that FOX's hit series (or really awful show, depending on what day it is and whether or not I'm in a good mood) will be taking on the music of the man that may very well be the greatest entertainer who ever lived. The show's January 24th episode will be the show's Michael Jackson tribute episode, and the first tribute hour the show has done so far in its entire third season. Glee will cover 10-12 of Jackson's classics.
Glee has previously paid homage to Britney Spears ("Brittany/Britney"), Fleetwood Mac ("Rumours"), Lady Gaga ("Theatricality/Born This Way"), and Madonna ("The Power Of Madonna"), so MJ's moves aren't the first to be honored by the series. They may, however, be the most impressive. Do you have high hopes for the tribute or should Glee back away from the infamous moonwalker? source
Um, yeah, I'll be skipping over the Fox channel during that particular week.

It’s been a liberating year for Corey Taylor. The vocalist behind the mask of Slipknot member #8 and out front of Stone Sour has pulled back from his musically aggressive ways to release an irreverent, thought-provoking book about the Seven Deadly Sins, speak at England’s renowned Oxford University about his literary efforts and also embark on a solo book reading/acoustic concert tour that recently found him singing the SpongeBob SquarePants theme to his children onstage. But none of these extra-metal activities should sound surprising because Taylor is a man who likes to mash up his life in funny ways, and he has been reveling in his current solo tour because it truly reveals his personality.
After The Dark Knight launched its viral “Why So Serious?” campaign way back in 2007, the movie obviously went on to be a smash. How much of that was due in part to alternative marketing is up for debate, but with The Dark Knight Rises just around the corner, it’s no surprise that we might be seeing the beginning of another viral run-up. Recently, The Wrap (via Movie Viral) interviewed Jeff Robinov, the President of Warner Bros. Motion Pictures, who said that the “marketing strategy will definitely evolve” from the previous Batman installment.
Hot on the heels of that quote, Empire and Wired (via Movie Viral) received two separate “CIA documents” concerning a Dr. Leonid Pavel. While that name doesn’t yet ring a bell, readers over at ComingSoon connected Pavel’s mugshot to that of actor Alon Aboutboul, who has a role in The Dark Knight Rises. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but hit the jump to check the documents out just the same.( Collapse )
Each time the topic of a follow-up to "X-Men: First Class" comes up, everyone seems eager to do it. Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy have both opened up about collaborating on ideas. Now top Fox exec Tom Rothman says that he wants it to happen: "We're trying like hell. We're trying as hard as we can. We really want to do it. We're planning to do it."
MTV News caught up with Rothman at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, and they spoke about the prospects continuing that series and how its success has changed how the studio approaches superhero movies.
For several minutes, Lisa Ray didn’t recognize the well-dressed young man who was helping to load piles of impeccably folded and wrapped shirts, pants and sweaters into her car.
In fact, she mentioned to his father, he looked just like a movie star. That’s when the young man decided to introduce himself.
There isn't an interview with him, but this is a really sweet thing he did.
... Are we thinking of the same Enjolras?
