Pic Of Fantasia's New Son + Wendy Drags Her

Since Fantasia’s son Dallas was born in December, she has managed to hide him from the media glare as people remained focus on the status of her relationship with the married Antwuan Cook. Now, the first image of the baby boy has surfaced and he has a striking resemblance to his father.

There is no word regarding the status of Fantasia’s future musical projects. Her last album, ‘Back to Me’, has yet to be certified gold by the RIAA in the US but the record’s lead single, ‘Bittersweet’, won a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 2011.

Soily Awards Nominees

As you likely know, the Golden Raspberry Awards are quickly approaching with all the promise of recognizing the worst of the last year in cinema. As you also likely know, the reaction to the Razzies among film critics and commentators has yielded many of the same complaints we hear every year: The nominations tend to omit movies that take themselves more seriously and/or aspire to something a little more sophisticated than Adam Sandler jump-roping with his shrill twin sister. The editors at Movieline concur with this perspective and hope to change it with the help of both esteemed peers and loyal readers. Thus the inaugural Soily Awards, our attempt to reconcile the year's highest-profile Hollywood misfires with their truly uninspired brethren.

To be awarded on March 23, the Soilies will showcase the new spectrum of awful that confronts today's filmgoers, with the ultimate goal of redefining Bad Movies for the 21st century. Or at least not letting high-achieving 2011 crapmakers like Clint Eastwood or Natalie Portman off the hook. Winners in the six categories below — whose nominees were chosen by Movieline's distinguished Brown-Ribbon panel of experts — will receive one of the lovely Soilies statuettes seen above.

Police Officer Claims Girlfriend Attacked Him With Justin Bieber Doll

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Michael Nuanes, a 37-year-old Denver Police Officer, was arrested January 27 for allegedly beating his girlfriend after an argument spiraled out of control. Nuanes says his girlfriend assaulted him with a Justin Bieber doll and injured his foot.

According to an Adams County Sheriff's Office affidavit via the Smoking Gun, "Nuanes stated that [his girlfriend] had thrown a 'Barbie Doll' at him, which bruised his foot and [said] that it hurt ... Nuanes pointed out a 'Justin Bieber' doll, which was the item used to injure him." He also said she "bit his finger and that it also hurt."

The girlfriend has accused Nuanes of punching her in the ribs and pulling her hair out. A report on KMGH further states Nuanes kicked in the door to the bathroom where she was hiding, and proceeded to assault her with the broken door.

The woman told interviewers later that the argument started when Nuanes grew angry she hadn't updated her Facebook page to reflect their relationship.

Westword notes that Nuanes has been reassigned to desk duty while the case proceeds.

Nuanes is out on a $1,500 bond. No charges have been filed against the woman, according to the Associated Press.

Seth MacFarlane: 'The new Flintstones will be like Simpsons mid-90s'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The remake of the classic cartoon is due to air in 2013

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has said that his remake of The Flintstones will be similar in tone to The Simpsons of the mid-1990s.

Speaking at the South by Southwest event A Conversation With Seth MacFarlane, he said the cartoon will be kept "more or less the same", but that the cultural references will be updated. The AV Club reports that MacFarlane said: We're kind of shooting for the level of edge in mid-'90s Simpsons—you're not going to see abortion jokes.

He added: "We're trying to, essentially, stay true to what that show is. There's something cool to me about, in 2013, turning on your TV and seeing The Flintstones and having it look like The Flintstones... We kinda want to keep it, more or less, the same. The stories that we tell will be a little more current."

The pilot for the new show is still being written. MacFarlane later spoke to the Huffington Post about the new series of the show, saying: "It's like being handed the keys to a very old expensive car. You want to be careful not to be Ferris Bueller with it."

One Direction Storm America As Album Hits No.1 On US iTunes

The combination of five young, good looking chaps, catchy pop tunes and the backing of a certain Mr Cowell was always a recipe for massive success, but One Direction must be pinching themselves at how well they've done in the States.

Full-on 1D mania is taking place at the moment with the lads zooming straight to the top of the US iTunes albums chart following a performance on the prestigious Today Show.

Over 15,000 thousand fans turned out to see Harry, Louis, Liam, Zayn and Niall perform outside New York's Rockefeller Centre yesterday.

They were greeted like true superstars as they arrived on the top of a double-decker bus before busting out a bit of What Makes You Beautiful on the US breakfast show to hoardes of screaming girls.

Topher Grace Edited The ‘Star Wars’ Prequels Into One 85-Minute Movie and We Saw It

Last month I received a cryptic e-mail inviting me to a private screening of a new Star Wars film edited by Topher Grace — which is funny because I had no idea there was a new Star Wars film in the works, with or without Grace’s involvement. I was told the screening was a secret private event arranged only for friends only and was asked not to talk about it beforehand. The event was held somewhere in the Hollywood area in a a screening room filled with filmmakers, editors, actors, actresses and only a few press friends. I was told I could blog about it afterwards if I wanted, so here goes…

For those of you who don’t know, Topher Grace is a film geek. He loves the Star Wars films, the Back to the Future movies and all the same signature titles of any film geek who grew up in the 1980s. He recently became interested in the editing process and wanted to learn more about the art form. Instead of cutting a short film, he wanted to use something he was more familiar with.

His idea was to edit the Star Wars prequels into one movie, as they would provide him a lot of footage to work with. He used footage from all three prequels, a couple cuts from the original trilogy, some music from The Clone Wars television series, and even a dialogue bit from Anthony Daniels’ (C-3PO) audio book recordings. He even created a new opening text crawl to set up his version of the story.

The result is an 85-minute movie titled Star Wars: Episode III.5: The Editor Strikes Back. It should be noted that the Star Wars prequel trilogy is almost 7 hours in total length, and the shortest film (Episode 1) is more than 51 minutes longer than Grace’s fan cut. What this means is a lot of footage ended up on the editing room floor, and a lot of creative choices were made in the editing process. And the result? Topher Grace’s Star Wars film is probably the best possible edit of the Star Wars prequels given the footage released and available.

An ONTD Favorite: New Eddie Furlong Interview.

We haven't seen Edward Furlong in a while -- not since the glory days of "Terminator 2," "American History X," and, to a lesser extent, "Detroit Rock City." Then, after that, he had bit parts here and there for several years, and then it seemed like he fell completely off the map -- except for several stories about an alleged drug overdose and a few volatile romantic relationships.

Now, set to appear at Toronto's Comicon on Saturday (for the "Terminator 2" panel, natch), Furlong is jovial, relaxed and - well, happy to be alive. He doesn't explicitly state it, but you can tell by his raspy voice that he's been through a lot, and he seems appreciative to still be in the acting game.

He chatted with Moviefone about "Terminator 2," what it was like when he first met Arnold Schwarzenegger and if he can even watch himself in his first role.

X-Factor Issue "Not About Money", Britney Wants An Out Clause

Britney Spears is close to signing a '$12-15 million deal' to join the US 'X Factor'.
The 'Hold It Against Me' hitmaker is wanted by show boss Simon Cowell to replace Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul on the panel of the musical TV series, but negotiations are currently sticking about how many seasons she would have to work on.

A source told 'Money is not an issue for the show. As of now, they are looking to pay her $12-15 million for the first season, with a drastic price hike for a second year based on ratings performance.

'Simon Cowell wants at least a two-year commitment and Britney wants an out clause if she doesn't want to continue after one year of service.'

Both Simon and fellow judge L.A. Reid are staying in their judging seats for the show, which experienced lower than expected ratings after it was unveiled for the first time in the US last year.

In addition to Britney, Simon is also keen to have British singer Adele join the panel.
A source said: 'Simon is always looking for new directions and ideas.

'He thinks Adele's success and achievements are incredible. True musicianship and a serious approach can bring a lot of credibility and an extra dimension to his show.'

Hang in there, Brit! Hearing about her insisting on an out clause is SUCH a huge relief to me, because I don't want her to be on the show for more than one season. She's going to be releasing her album in 2013, so if she does Season 3 of X-Factor, it's going to clash with her plans for the new album/tour. I just want her to do one season so that she can see new talent to get her creative juices flowing, interact with human beings once again, gain some exposure to the viewing public who have not seen her in years, and then get back to the music scene. Don't say yes till they contract you for one year only, gurl!

Why Won't Matt Weiner Reveal Any Mad Men Season 5 Footage?

Like every other preview that’s been released for the past seven months, it’s a cheeky compilation of footage from previous seasons. Less than two weeks before the first new episodes in a year and a half, Matthew Weiner still won’t give us a glimpse of what the characters are doing in Season 5.

A Song of Ice and Fire Has Become Game of Thrones, and Thank God For That

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Somewhere along the line, it happened. The name changed. George R.R. Martin's celebrated fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire more-or-less officially became known as Game of Thrones.

We can probably blame HBO; their hugely successful TV series Game of Thrones is what launched Martin's books into the public consciousness. Since the show's debut, A Song of Ice and Fire has been relegated to status as a footnote during a credits sequence, or a small note on the box.

Now we have board games, card games, video games of every stripe, and all manner of memes, merchandise and miscellany, all under the Game of Thrones banner. But how did this happen, and why?

No More Seeing Beat Grylls Drinking His Piss

Bear Grylls FIRED By Discovery Channel

For the first time in his career, "Man vs. Wild" star Bear Grylls has failed to survive ... at the Discovery Channel -- because the network just fired him.

A rep for Discovery tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him."

Sources tell THR, the relationship came to a screeching halt after 37-year-old Grylls refused to participate in two mystery projects he was contracted for.

Grylls originally partnered with Discovery in 2006 when "Man vs. Wild" premiered on the network. So far, no word on Grylls' next move ... though it will probably somehow involve him drinking his own urine.

well this sucks. I enjoyed his show tons. I still love you Bear.

At her last major red carpet appearance at the 2011 Country Music Awards in November, Hill looked incredibly polished and sexy in a white Chado Ralph Rucci column dress and her hair done in a sky-high voluminous bouffant-inspired style.

Jennifer lopez cover "Vogue" [ April 2012 ] USA

The star looks gorgeous in red on the April issue of the high-fashion mag, marking the second time ever that JLo landed on the cover — and you can get your first look here!

Could you think of anyone better than Jennifer Lopez to cover Vogue‘s ‘Shape’ issue? The 42-year-old star seems to be in the best shape of her life, and always embraces her curves and flaunts her fantastic figure — although I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit disappointed that the April ‘Shape’ issue doesn’t show off more of that fantastic bod.

JLo looks sophisticated and chic, rocking a red lip and a red gown, on the leaked cover — and I can’t wait to see the rest of the shoot! Inside, it looks like the star addresses her divorce, being a mom and how she maintains her figure.

The April 2012 cover marks the second time ever that the singer has appeared on the mag. Her first cover was for the June 2005 issue. It also marks the third month in a row we’ve seen a crooning songstress on the cover, as the mag just featured both Taylor Swift and Adele.

Jessica Biel cover "W" Magazine [ April 2012]

On the first movie she remembers seeing:
"The Goonies. I never identified with girls, and the cast was all boys. Girls were nervous about going into caves; they were scaredy-cats—and I wasn’t into that at all. I loved the idea of being with a crew and having an adventure. I was really interested in pits full of snakes."

On how she got her start in acting:
"When I was 11, I was in a competition sponsored by the International Modeling and Talent Association. You paid a certain amount of money and they taught you to walk a runway, present a comedic monologue, a dramatic monologue, a dance routine, and a song. My runway look was a one-piece bathing suit, a top hat, and a bow tie. The competition was in L.A., and afterward I got a manager and an agent. I tried out for a billion things, and after three years, I was cast on the show 7th Heaven."

On if she was a rebel during her teen years:
"I cut my hair supershort and dyed it blonde. I had to apologize to Aaron Spelling [the producer] for doing that. He wasn’t happy. When I turned 17 or 18, a really obnoxious friend sent a stripper to the set. I had to apologize for that too. The show was all about family values, and they took that position seriously. I was always apologizing."

On her girl-on-girl action in 'Total Recall':
"Fun—so fun! Our fight scene isn’t overtly sexy: just two trained fighters who happen to be women kicking the shit out of each other. It could be two dudes, but we just happened to have long hair and boobs and…other things [laughs]."

Dakota Cochrane (a.k.a. Sean Cody’s Danny) Booted From Reality Show After Just One Episode

o sad! He had such high hopes. But, poor Dakota Cockring couldn’t make it past his first match:

Perhaps the most curious contestant to ever be considered for inclusion on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) mixed martial arts (MMA) television reality series, Dakota Cochrane, got his big opportunity to show what he’s really made of inside the Octagon….He came up just a bit short. Cochrane, who performed in “gay-for-pay” porn flicks several years ago, took on James Vick in a five-minute fight for the right to compete on TUF 15 season and a “six-figure” UFC contract. [Cochrane] went on to lose the 155-pound bout via split decision, ending what might have been the most interesting TUF house storyline before it ever even began.

I’m sure he’ll bounce back, somehow…

Blind Items

Ignoring beige bitches all day err day

1. This B list film and television actress is always bragging about being a mother to the press, but she might not be so good at it out of the spotlight. She’s forgotten to pick up her child from school on more than one occasion and last week the child called her grandmother saying she was home alone and hungry. The child is under ten. Buzz Foto
My Guess: Debra Messing

2. This actor has shown up for work on his new gig prepared and in good shape. Good news, right? Not so fast. We don’t know how much longer that will last. There has recently been some slippage into some bad habits away from the set. This news has cast and crew worried that this could be a very short gig. His management is aware of the issue and is trying to get the star back on track. They know that he won’t be winning many fans within the industry if he can’t be relied upon for a steady paycheck. Blind Gossip
My Guess: Charlie Sheen

3. On a recent movie set, these two A/B list costars were acting out a pretty intimate sex scene for the cameras. A source tells us that one of the stars got a little too into the scene and began taking it too far.When the other person wanted to stop, it was too late and both ended up upset in their trailers for hours being talked down by staff. Buzz Foto
My Guess: let's recap.... during the filming of a sex scene, an actor gets way too into it and accidentally ejaculated on the actress. LOL thats gross. As far as a guess.... Jeremy Renner and Tom Cruise? I KEED I KEED! Maybe Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo filming "Thanks For Sharing," a movie about sex addiction. She was probably mad because his jizz wasn't free range organic.

'Spartacus' casts Julius Caesar and Marcus Crassus for season 3

Spartacus will face some Roman legends in season 3.

Starz and Spartacus producers have just cast actors to play famed leader Julius Caesar and wealthy general Marcus Crassus in the hit show. EW has learned exclusively that Australian TV actor Todd Lasance (Crownies) has been cast as a young Caesar, who will begin his ascent toward ruling the empire. He’ll use his intelligence and deadly skill with a sword to try and crush the slave rebellion.

British TV actor Simon Merrells (The Wolfman, Family Affair) will play Crassus, the richest man in Rome, who craves the power and respect that would come from defeating Spartacus.

Spartacus: Vengeance has averaged 3.1 million viewers this season and included some rather spectacular set pieces. Producers say the drama will get even more bloody and shocking toward the finale.

Aside from confirming the sad separation, reps for the couple aren't commenting on details surrounding their break-up, though rumors of trouble in paradise have plagued the couple since last year.

Anne Hathaway: When I'm called "Regular" it's code for "Fat"

Anne Hathaway reveals she has a problem with her body image; she thinks she is fat. Apparently, the actress has fallen victim to media that puts skinny on a pedestal. Has this girl looked in the mirror lately? According to US Weekly, Hathaway said,

When people refer to me as a 'regular''s code word for 'fat' in Hollywood.

While Hathaway may be blinded by visions of invisible cellulite on her thighs, she has come to terms with her weight.

My body has chosen its shape. I'd rather be strong than skinny.

What she fails to notice is how the average person would be envious of the shape her body chose. While Hollywood is uber-critical of appearances, it is doubtful that anyone thinks Hathaway needs the help of Jenny Craig.

Summaries Released for April Episodes of Game of Thrones

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

HBO has released the synopses for all April episodes for season 2 of Game of Thrones, which is set to premiere on Sunday, April 1 at 9:00 p.m. ET. According to HBO, here is the official description of the season's storyline:

"War is coming to Westeros. As the cold winds rise and five kings vie for power, bonds are forged and broken, identities are challenged and romance blossoms. With the stakes higher than ever before, who will survive the chaos to claim the Iron Throne? The ten-episode second season of Game of Thrones plays out against the backdrop of a fast-approaching winter – the season of the white raven. In King’s Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and his uncle Tyrion, who has been appointed Hand of the King.

But the Lannister hold on the Throne is under assault on many fronts. Robb Stark, son of Ned Stark, the slain Lord of Winterfell, seeks autonomy in the North and has taken Cersei’s brother Jaime prisoner in battle. Daenerys Targaryen looks to shore up her depleted power in the East with her three newborn dragons. Stannis Baratheon, brother of the late King Robert, rejects Joffrey’s legitimacy and aligns with a powerful priestess to raise a naval attack. And Renly, Stannis’ charismatic brother, has maintained his own claim since fleeing King’s Landing.

In the meantime, a new leader is rising among the wildlings North of the Wall, adding fresh perils for Jon Snow and the order of the Night’s Watch. With tensions and treaties, animosity and alliances, the second season of Game of Thrones will be a thrilling journey through an unforgettable landscape."

Here are the synopses for the April episodes. Spoilers may follow, so proceed at your own risk!

In conjunction with the BeautyBank division of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., Wang will release a 74 piece collection in April as part of the Simply Vera Vera Wang brand she has with the retailer.

“It completes my Kohl’s universe,” the designer told WWD. “Also, a pop of color is such a gorgeous way to let your natural beauty shine through. It’s the ultimate accessory.Wang promises that each product is a combination of color and treatment, since she believes strongly in the maintenance of one’s skin.

What can we expect from her next? Wang says her daughters are nudging her to do a nail polish line. “It’s an obsession in my home,” she said. We’ll be looking forward to it!

Bruno Mars Makes History as 10th Man to Appear on 'Playboy' Cover

Bruno Mars joins an elite group of men as the 10th male to grace the cover of Playboy.

The Grammy Award-winning musician is featured in the mag’s April Sex and Music issue, out March 16. He appears on the cover alongside Raquel Pomplun, as well as in a fashion pictorial and interview on the inside pages. In his feature, Mars models spring designs by Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and more.

“Growing up in the showbiz world, I looked up to those guys: Frank Sinatra and of course Elvis Presley,” he told Playboy of his idols. “My dad was into the 1950s doo-wop era. If you look at those groups, or at James Brown, Jackie Wilson and the Temptations in the 1960s, you’ll see you had to be sharp onstage.”

Mars flaunts his signature style and dresses sharply for his photo spread, which includes the colorful shot below. Mars is pictured below wearing a shirt by Palace Costume Los Angeles, pants by Louis Vuitton, sunglasses by Ray-Ban and loafers by Re-Mix. In the cover shot above, Mars dons his own personal Armani suit.

Surprisingly, the “Grenade” singer chose Jimi Hendrix, not Sinatra or Presley, as the musician he would most like to work with if given the opportunity. “I think he’s the greatest guitar player in the world, and I would want to see him do his thing in person,” Mars said. “He’s the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place.”

As a Playboy cover star, Mars follows in the footsteps of several Hollywood icons. Peter Sellers was the first Y-chromosome to appear on the cover back in April 1967, followed by Burt Reynolds (October 1979), Steve Martin (January 1980), Donald Trump (March 1990), Dan Aykroyd (August 1993), Jerry Seinfeld (October 1993), Leslie Nielson (February 1996), Gene Simmons (March 1999) and Seth Rogen (April 2009).

Zooey Deschanel feels frustrated that female characters are not often given major roles in comedies

Zooey Deschanel gets ”depressed” when she is sent scripts where she is a supporting character. The ‘New Girl’ actress admits she rarely gets sent any projects or characters she can get excited about as a ”comedienne” because she is often only sent parts as the lead actor’s girlfriend.

She said: "I really do feel that for a long time women didn’t have the place in comedy that they should.

"I mean, when you get sent scripts and you see you’re always playing someone’s girlfriend when you want to be the central role, it’s so depressing. As a comedienne, it felt so frustrating to always be setting up someone else’s comedic moment.”

However, the 32-year-old beauty thinks things began to change with the success of female-driven comedy ‘Bridesmaids’ – starring Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph – because studio bosses understood there was an audience who weren’t being catered to.

She added: "’Bridesmaids’ success meant that a lot of networks realized people were interested in that kind of comedy.We already had our show in production, but it made the networks pay more attention.”

History Channel Orders 1st Scripted Series About Vikings

The network has ordered a full season of the medieval-set drama "Vikings" from "The Tudors" and "Elizabeth" writer Michael Hirst, to debut in summer 2013.

History channel has ordered its first scripted series.

Vikings, about the legendary Norsemen of medieval times, is set to bow in summer 2013. The network has committed to a full season of the series from Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios and creator Michael Hirst, who has adapted numerous historical dramas for TV and film including The Tudors and Elizabeth. The announcement came Tuesday from Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of History, and Roma Khanna, television group president of MGM Studios.

The project is currently casting and is set to begin filming later this year in Ireland and other locations in Northern Europe.

It is a bold play for the channel, which has become a top-rated ad-supported cable network on the strength of its male-targeted unscripted slate including Pawn Stars and Ice Road Truckers. But the network is slowly branching into scripted territory with it's first scripted miniseries, Hatfields & McCoys, starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton, premiering on Memorial Day.

In a statement, Dubuc described the project as a "crossroads" for History.

"People think they know about the Vikings – we see references to them all the time in our popular culture from TV commercials to football teams – but the reality is so much more fascinating and complex, more vivid, visceral and powerful than popular legend," she said. "We will explore the mysteries of the Vikings - the adventures they took and the people who led them. And we will start to understand a past that is very much part of our collective DNA today."

The series will cast the Viking legend as a family drama chronicling the exploits of actual historical figure Ragnar Lothbrok and his band of Viking brothers as Lothbrok rises to become King of the Viking tribes.

Vikings is an international Irish/Canadian co-production from World 2000 and Take 5 Productions. Shaw Media will be the broadcast partner in Canada, airing the show on History Television in Canada. MGM will distribute internationally, outside of Ireland and Canada.

Courtney Love: Disney and Kermit the Frog Are RAPING Kurt Cobain

Courtney Love believes Kermit the Frog and his gang of Muppet friends "raped" the memory of her late husband Kurt Cobain -- by bastardizing Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in their 2011 movie ... without her permission.

Courtney says she has the absolute power to approve or nix the use of Kurt's music for commercial purposes, and she never gave the OK for the 2 companies to use the song for the 2011 Muppets movie.

But there's another side to this ... We're told Courtney sold off half of her rights to Kurt's music to a company called Primary Wave Music. And there's more ... Courtney also gave Primary Wave the exclusive right to distribute Nirvana's entire catalog.

As far as "Smells Like Teen Spirit" goes ... not only did Primary Wave approve the use in the Muppet's movie, they got permission from the two surviving Nirvana members -- Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. And Dave is even in the movie.

But it's not all that bad for Courtney. We're told a chunk of the profits from songs in the catalog go to Courtney and her daughter, Frances Bean.

4 New Madonna Promo Pixxx

She looks good in some of them, but why so much Photoshopping?

She doesn't look human. Does she think this looks natural? She looks great on the "Give Me All Your Luvin'" single cover, shot by the same people, and she doesn't look plastic. This is Giovani Bianco's doing. He messed with the "Confessions on a Dance Floor" and "Hard Candy" photos, and made them look cartoonish.

She should have used Mert & Marcus' Fabien Baron, who did Madonna's "Sex" book, and the amazing 2010 Interview magazine shoot. Oh wells..

Am I the only one who thinks she looks a tad like Kylie below?

Radio Host Alex Jones Calls for Angelina Jolie’s Arrest for “War Crimes” (VIDEO)

Alex Jones, the conspiracy-minded talk show host and filmmaker, is calling for the arrest of Angelina Jolie for alleged war crimes.

The startling charge comes in a new video (below) posted by Jones in response to Kony 2012 and the larger movement to raise awareness about brutal Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony.

Jones claims the anti-Kony crusade is just “war propaganda” being used to justify conflict with humanitarian excuses, and he specifically unloads on Jolie.

Calling her an “emaciated vampire woman” and “monster” who’s been “selling genocide,” Jones also labels Jolie a “disgrace and danger to humanity” and demands she be punished.

Sherlock to Begin Filming Third Series 'Early 2013' Says Producer Beryl Vertue

The third series of Sherlock will start filming in 'early 2013', according to Beryl Vertue - one of its executive producers.

Vertue, who is speaking at the Nations and Regions Media conference in Salford today, told Ariel that it was too early to confirm transmission times for the next series.

But it means fans have a long wait to learn how the detective faked his death at the end of the second series.

The drama, which has been a massive hit with around 10 million viewers, was co-created by Vertue's son-in-law Steven Moffat and is produced by his wife Sue Vertue for Hartswood Films and BBC Wales.

Filmed in Cardiff and London, it has also sold to 200 territories.

Leading actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are currently filming abroad on the next Star Trek movie and The Hobbit respectively.

Well this kinda sucks. Going by the fact that they started filming the second series in May 2011 and it took seven months for it to air on the BBC that means August 2013 at the earliest.

5 Actresses Who Should Join ‘American Horror Story’

American Horror Story is getting ready to start production on season two, and it was reported last week that the show was casting for a “a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot who harbors a secret.” This twentysomething female would serve as the nemesis to this season’s star, Jessica Lange. So, given our infinite casting wisdom, we have decided to let Ryan Murphy know the five actresses we think would be best in this role.

• Megan Fox — She was just great in her small role in Friends With Kids, and this would be another fantastic way for everyone to forget that whole Transformers debacle. What’s more, the character description seems to fit her to a tee, and we can just see her and Lange having the most delightful face-offs ever.
• Kaya Scodelario — The Skins star is not very well known stateside, but definitely has the attitude, chops and gorgeous looks to pull this character off. Even better, it does not say the character can’t have a British accent. And we all know nothing makes someone seem more sinister than good looks and a British accent.
• Isabelle Fuhrman — She is only 15-years-old and far, far too young for the character on paper but hey, the girl already played 33 in Orphan. What’s more, she will be riding a huge wave following the success of The Hunger Games and she scares the sh*t out of everyone. Give the girl a shot, she can definitely hold her own with Lange.
• Shailene Woodley — There is no question this near Oscar nominee wants to do everything in the world to distance herself from her role on the ABC Family show Secret Life of the American Teen, and what better way than to spend some time sexing it up while no doubt also committing a slew of undoubtedly immoral acts for Mr. Murphy?
• Andrej Pejic — Isn’t Ryan Murphy all about thinking outside the box?


Who do you think it should be?

Not only is Brit/Irish boyband The Wanted at No 4 on the Billboard chart, but they are in talks to get a walk-on role in the film of hit US TV series Entourage.

And it’s all down to the five Wanted lads – Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes – bumping into show boss Mark Wahlberg in Barbados.

They really hit it off and Mark is keen for the band to appear in the upcoming movie version of the HBO series, which ended last year.

Dark Shadows Trailer to Premiere Thursday March 15th on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

About frigging time!!!!!!!!!!!!! There's a synopsis at the source if you're interested in the official plotline.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Wondering when you'll be able to see the trailer for Tim Burton's take on the holy grail of vampire themed TV shows, Dark Shadows? Well, the answer has come... you just have to dance around with Ellen DeGeneres first.

According to the show's website, Ellen has the exclusive trailer for the new Tim Burton film, and it will be aired this Thursday, March 15th.

The ensemble cast includes Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz, Thomas McDonell, and newcomer Gulliver McGrath.

Look for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows in theatres in glorious 2D on May 11, 2012.


You sank my film career!

"Warning red, weapons tight...I want everything loaded," Liam Neeson gravely intones to a bunch of guys stranded in Alaskan wilderness to his crew. Why? Because a bunch of Transformers from space who are gonna create a huge debris field are coming to Earth in the latest trailer for "Battleship."

The most explosion-y of the spots yet, this trailer makes the case that Universal really, really wanted to make "Transfomers 4" instead. Focusing heavily on the baddies, which look like their suits were ripped out of "Halo," these aliens (or whatever) seem hella fierce. In fact, we have no idea how these puny little boats are going to defeat a massive onslaught of high tech weaponry from beyond, but maybe Taylor Kitsch and co. run into Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum on the way. At any rate, this looks pretty terrible, a ludicrous plot coupled with lots of loud noises hoping to distract you from how silly it all seems. And while many have this in the tank for a bomb, sometimes this is all it takes to get audiences to fork over their cash. And unlike "John Carter," at least people know what a "Battleship" is. Plus, RIHANNA, WOO!

"Battleship" will sink or swim on May 18th, but folks in the U.K. get it more than a month early on April 11th.

First poster for "Ted", starring Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s feature directorial debut Ted opens this summer, and we now have our look at the first poster. The film stars Mark Wahlberg as a grown man whose childhood wish that his teddy bear would come to life suddenly comes true. The bear (played by Macfarlane using motion-capture) turns out to be a swearing, pot-smoking wreck who ruins Wahlberg’s life. The film is apparently pretty insane (Wahlberg previously told Steve that it’s incredibly offensive), with Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Patrick Warburton, and Giovanni Ribisi rounding out the cast. Macfarlane and Wahlberg premiered the first footage from the pic this past weekend at the SXSW Film Festival and handed out the first poster to festivalgoers. We got our hands on one and it’s now included after the jump for your viewing pleasure. As you’ll see, it very much hints at the irreverent tone that’s sure to be on full-display.

Hit the jump to take a gander. A trailer debut for the film should be on the way soon. Ted opens July 13th.

Movie Trailer for "Free Samples" starring Jess Weixler, Jesse Eisenberg, Jason Ritter, Tippi Hedren

Synopsis: A Stanford law-school dropout named Jillian escapes to the anonymity of Los Angeles to figure out what she wants to do with her life, and on the day of her college boyfriend's birthday, she finds herself stuck running an ice cream truck fending off locals and oddball friends alike. This one day spent in a truck on the streets of Los Angeles will wake Jillian from her aimless daze and make her see that life doesn't stop just because you want it to.


Honestly only watching this for Jesse since I don't think I GAF about the main character. I'm not even sure why Jesse's character would be into her (side note: I still can't figure out who he's playing - her boyfriend/fiance? A one night stand?) Fun facts: Jess Weixler is actually 31 (she looks about 25 in the trailer to me) and is apparently BFFs with Jessica Chastain, Jason Ritter starred with Jesse in The Education of Charlie Banks, and Halley Feiffer played Jesse's girlfriend in The Squid and the Whale. She's also a playwright.

Lana del Rey will preform on American Idol

The controversial chanteuse, Lana del Rey is reportedly either performing on American Idol on Thursday, or pre-taping for a later appearance.

Del Rey’s name is listed on the audience tickets along with Daughtry and Demi Lovato who are scheduled to perform.

For those of you not familiar with Lana–she was a You Tube sensation before she released her latest album. She’s controversial, because she had released work under her real name Lizzie Grant. Critics charge that her “indie” status is manufactured by her people.

She also bombed in an appearance on Saturday Night Live. So, my bet is on pre-tape because the live thing generally doesn’t work out for her so well.

Animation Legend Ralph Bakshi Looks Back at His Cult Classic "Wizards"

In his heyday animator Ralph Bakshi was considered the Anti-Disney. Today, he’s considered an icon.

With Bakshi’s most enduringly popular film, 1977’s sci-fi/fantasy “Wizards,” getting a glorious upgrade to Blu Ray for its 35th anniversary, the director is being lured off the New Mexico “mountaintop” he’s inhabited since he finally abandoned Hollywood a dozen years ago to revisit it – he’ll be making stops at places as disparate – but equally united in their praise of Bakshi’s film – as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the comic book convention WonderCon.

The film not only signaled Bakshi’s professional shift from animating controversial but celebrated underground cult films like the X-rated “Fritz the Cat” (based on R. Crumb’s creation), “Heavy Traffic” and “Coonskin” into slightly more mainstream, fantasy-based fare, it also joined “Star Wars” that same year in launching science fiction and fantasy as film genres with increasingly broad appeal, as well as adult-themed animation. After laying the template for the types of movies that are commonplace in Hollywood today, Bakshi conjured some considerable perspective on “Wizards” – as well as his career as a whole – for PopcornBiz.

David Beckham: 'I'm picking up an American accent'

David Beckham has revealed that he has started to lose his British accent. The LA Galaxy footballer, who moved to Los Angeles with wife Victoria five years ago, said that he finds himself using American terminology all the time.

Beckham told The Sun: "I catch myself calling my kids 'dude' every once in a while, so there are a few words creeping in. And using American words like elevator instead of lift."

He also revealed that sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz have become more expressive with their sense of fashion since living in the US, saying: "They're at the age when they want to wear their own things.

"You've got the oldest, Brooklyn, and he'll wear his soccer shirts and a T-shirt. Romeo is the fashion one, so he'll go in and pick up skinny jeans and a vintage T-shirt and a funny hat.

"Cruz loves Justin Bieber, so anything he's got Cruz wants, like the big high-tops with skinny jeans. They all have their own style."

Two years after relocating, the Beckhams reportedly started taking elocution lessons in a bid to boost their US career prospects. Around the same time, David admitted that the children were all developing "really American" accents.

Gillian Anderson talks about having relationships with women

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Anderson, who has a 17-year-old daughter from her first marriage and two young sons with her current partner, has spent a lifetime feeling like the wildcard in the room. As an actor, she is used to projecting herself into other lives, but questions of identity color her life, too. She recalls moving from England to Michigan, when she was 11, and discovering that she was no longer part of the tribe. “Going from London to a small Republican town like Grand Rapids was quite a shock,” she says. “I thought it would be a place of sunshine and happiness and candy bars.” In high school, she was voted “Most Bizarre” and “Most Likely to Be Arrested.” Both descriptions, says Anderson, contained a kernel of truth, “based on how I chose to look, dress, behave, you know—the relationships I was in at the time were freaking people out.” Invited to elaborate, she begins to list them: “I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school, and then I was in a relationship with a punk rock drug addict who...”

Wait, a lesbian relationship? “Yeah, yeah, well it’s... You know, I’m old enough that I can talk about that,” she says, before resuming her list: “And then I was in a relationship with somebody who was way, way older than me. Everything that that kind of anarchistic attitude brings—the inappropriate behavior it leads to—was how I chose to be in the world at that time, which was, you know, not what people did.”

Much of this has been written before -- how she dyed her hair purple, how she glued the school gates shut on graduation night, the drugs and alcohol -- but her lesbian romance is something new. Understandably, she is wary of making a big deal of it, precisely because it is a big deal for so many people. “If I had thought I was 100% gay, would it have been a different experience for me?” she wonders. “Would it have been a bigger deal if shame had been attached to it and all those things that become huge life-altering issues for youngsters in that situation? It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.”

Anderson says she has had relation-ships with other women, but they have been the exception, not the rule. She is, of course, aware of the lesbian fan base -- in a 2007 episode of The Graham Norton Show, a popular U.K. talk show, the mischievous host invited her to read aloud from a lesbian foreign phrase book, to which she gamely responded, “Lick my clit,” only to realize that Norton intended her to deliver the phrase in German.
