A week in the life of Nick Fury

Marvel’s Avengers achieved a magnificent feat: injection of the “shared universe” notion into the world of blockbuster filmmaking. Now, high on victory fumes, Marvel has accomplished something almost as impressive by making their onscreen universe as confusing as the various strands of their comic book multiverse. A new infographic from The Art of Marvel’s The Avengers maps the chronologies of all six Avengers movies, beginning with the failed Frost Giant invasion of Norway, and including all the stuff that happened in ugly stepchild The Incredible Hulk. The most enjoyable revelation from the timeline is also cuckoo bananas: The events of Thor, Iron Man 2, and The Incredible Hulk all took place in the same seven-day period.

Kim Kardashian Bans Girls from Kanye West Tour

rexfeatures_1701447a

Kim Kardashian has reportedly banned girls from going backstage at Kanye West's tour.

The demand is said to be just one of the orders the socialite has made as her boyfriend joins Jay-Z on their Watch The Throne tour.

"Kanye has a load of girls he's friends with. Most are stylists or from the fashion set but Kim's not happy about them being alone with him backstage," a source told The Sun.


"She sees how well he gets on with girls because of his sensitive side and has decided to rein in the entourage a bit. Kim is trying to put a stop to this as she doesn't want to look or feel awkward at any point.

"She has her own area at the O2 so she can spend more time with Kanye. She realizes he will need to do his thing with Jay-Z and the rest of the crew but she'll have somewhere for her and her pals to hang out."

Kardashian apparently demanded a private dinner with West earlier this week, despite Jay-Z hiring a section of London restaurant Zuma for the group.

Reports have suggested that the couple are already considering marriage, although Beyoncé allegedly disapproves of Kardashian.

Dan Harmon found out he was replaced as 'Community' showrunner when we did

HEY, DID I MISS ANYTHING?
Kids:
A few hours ago, I landed in Los Angeles, turned on my phone, and confirmed what you already know. Sony Pictures Television is replacing me as showrunner on Community, with two seasoned fellows that I’m sure are quite nice - actually, I have it on good authority they’re quite nice, because they once created a show and cast my good friend Jeff Davis on it, so how bad can they be.

the guy might be a bit of a dick, but Community just wouldn't be the same without him.

So far, no comment from Janice.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Rumors swirled months ago Britney’s debuting a new fragrance called Golden Radiance, but now it seems that perfume was put on the back-burner, and replaced with Fantasy Twist, a Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy duo.
They are housed in a spherical bottle that twists into two parts, one containing the original Fantasy and the other Midnight Fantasy. They will be available in 100ml, 50ml and 30ml sizes, priced at £39, £30 and £24 respectively. I’m loving the idea of the little 30ml bottle in my handbag – it gives you the perfect daytime vs. nighttime perfume option!”
The perfume’s rumored to launch in September to coincide with her appearance on X Factor.

Ezra Miller: Every Man Should Dance Naked Before Donning a Tux at Cannes



Sometimes, the Croisette at Cannes can be a red-carpet march of the penguins—with tuxedo-ed dudes lined up, one after the other, all playing safe, and barely distinguishable from the black-tied paparazzi. Ezra Miller, star of We Need to Talk About Kevin and the upcoming The Perks of Being a Wallflower, was having none of it. He showed up to the opening night party for Wes Anderson's opening night film Moonrise Kingdom wearing a three-piece vintage tux, replete with tails, vintage shades, a crisp-brimmed hat and one hell of a cordoruy-velvet red bowtie. On his hand, the 19-year-old son of publisher Robert S. Miller, has scrawled "99%" in black magic marker. We asked him to break down his red-carpet rebellion.

Chyna: Hospitalized After Collapsing Again at Porn Convention
Former WWE superster Chyna collapsed at a porn convention in Miami today and taken to a nearby hospital ... TMZ has learned ... her third such episode in as many days. 

Chyna was appearing at the 2012 Exxxotica Expo to help promote Vivid Entertainment's porn parody of "Avengers" -- she plays She-Hulk (yes, really). A rep for Vivid tells TMZ the company was worried about her after yesterday's medical scare ... but Chyna insisted she was ok. 

We're told Chyna made it to the convention center today, but passed out in the lobby and was taken to Mt. Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach.

As TMZ first reported, in addition to passing out yesterday at the convention ... she was kicked out of a party on Thursday night for her unruly behavior, which included passing out in a pool.

Hundreds of pet owls abandoned after Harry Potter craze fades

And it’s feared many more have been illegally released into the wild and will have starved to death



Hundreds of owls are being abandoned across the country after being bought as pets by Harry Potter fans.

Sanctuaries are full of the birds now the craze has faded after the release of the final Harry Potter film last year.

And it’s feared many more have been illegally released into the wild and will have starved to death or taken over territory inhabited by smaller wild owls.

There was a surge in demand for pet owls from fans who fell in love with Harry’s cute companion ­Hedwig.

But the birds, which can live for 20 years, take a lot of looking after – and many owners have become fed-up of repeatedly having to clean up garages and sheds of their ­droppings and feathers.

KKK-POP AS STRONG AS EVER: KOREAN BOY BANDS INDOCTRINATE THE YOUNG MINDS OF A NATION WITH RACISM



Rookie K-POP boyband Infinite started out as a promising, fresh breath of air to the increasingly stagnant KPOP scene. In fact, up until recently the septet were considered up and coming superstarts with a bright future just up ahead; however, their success seems to have come to an abrupt halt with the release of their most recent song (The Chaser). The most obvious explanation would be that it's nothing more than a thoughtless rehash of their previous title tracks, in an lazy attempt to satiate rabid fangirls. But I, Tay Symone, international injustice investigative journalist, felt there was more to the story than their #27 position on the realtime charts was telling me. Upon dwelving into Infinite's vast array of professional follies, I came across a poorly concealed secret. Cultural appropriation, racial fetishization, and countless damaging remarks reducing the entire Black community to nothing more than a couple of movies directed by Chris Stokes with B2K having top billing.

Film Negative Gives Obscure First Look at Philip Seymour Hoffman in ‘The Master’



Trust Paul Thomas Anderson to retain a sense of mystery, even as he gives up some information. The writer/director is in post-production on his new film The Master, which stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as the ultimate self-starter, a man who creates his own religion. We know that actors like Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, and Laura Dern are in the movie.


We also know that Mihai Malaimare Jr. (Tetro and Twixt Now and Sunrise) worked with PTA to shoot the film on 65mm. Now Anderson has offered up a photo of a scrap of that 65mm negative. Small as it may be, once the image is inverted and color-corrected, this is our first real look at Hoffman in the film.


PTA sent this image and a couple more to Cigarettes and Red Vines, along with a note:

CJ -
good evening.  it’s been so long
and you’ve been so patient, thought
i’d fill you in on where we’re
at with it now:
 These shots include our lovely
Negative Cutter, Simone, imported
all the way from France to cut 65mm
negative.   She does it all with a pair
of scissors from Staples.  
I’ll have more to share in the
coming days/weeks/months.  Hope
you’re well. Thank you for all the support.
See you soon.
paul.


The Weinstein Company will open The Master on October 12 of this year. In the meantime, check out this slight first look:

Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan party until 7am in the Hollywood Hills



They both have long-standing reputations as Hollywood wild ones.

And Paris Hilton, 31, and Lindsay Lohan, 25, didn't do themselves any favours after attending a raucous party at a LA home until the early hours of this morning.

Police were called to the Hollywood Hills residence after neighbours filed a noise complaint, according to onlookers.

Paris was spotted leaving the property wearing dark sunglasses and a cap along with her friend, oil heir Brandon Davis.

Lindsay is understood to have made an undercover exit, hiding under a towel in the back seat of a friend's car.

Lindsay and Paris are clearly on good terms again after a spectacular feud dating back to 2006, when the hotel heiress and Brandon crudely nicknamed her Firecrocth.

The Machete actress has been attempting to resuscitate her flagging career and recently made a guest appearance on Glee.

Meanwhile Paris, who is dating DJ Afrojack, has been inspired to try a career change by her new beau.

She will debut her DJ set in Sao Paulo, Brazil on June 23 in front 30,000 people.

The film will be based on a recent Vanity Fair article by Suzanna Andrews called Untangling Rebekah Brooks, which traced her journey from News of the World secretary to the most powerful woman in Rupert Murdoch’s empire.
