Official Trailer for "Breaking the Girls" + Shawn Ashmore at Comic-Con

Source 1, 2, 3 (for the synopsis), and 4

I was not impressed by 'The Quiet' and this trailer isn't doing much for me either to be honest (although the same director is also responsible for 'But I'm a Cheerleader') . Only time will tell but come on Shawn why do you do this to me bb? 'The Following' however sounds better and better by the minute and is incredibly well received so I can't wait for that to make its premiere mid-season.

'THE DARK KNIGHT RISES' WB Axing Gun Imagery from Trailer + Nolan's statement


The studio behind "The Dark Knight Rises" is removing all images and references to guns from all "Batman" movie trailers ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ ... the honchos at Warner Bros. gave the order just a few hours after the shooting in Colorado this morning.

We're told the studio is hoping to replace the current made for TV trailers with the gun-free version as soon as possible.

We've called Warner Bros. for comment -- so far, no word back.


CHRISTOPHER NOLAN: James Holmes is a Savage

"Dark Knight Rises" director Christopher Nolan just released the following statement regarding the massacre in Colorado:

"Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of 'The Dark Knight Rises', I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families."

TV's Cutest Couple?

"Cutest couples" sounds like something out of a prom from the ’60s. But if by “cutest couples,” you mean two people who are pretty good looking but also have a special chemistry that makes them viewer magnets, we'd have to award the trophy to Chris Gorham and Piper Perabo of  ”Covert Affairs.”


(For the record, they aren’t exactly a couple, but in addition to action-packed plots, “Covert” has mined a whole “will they or won’t they” storyline vein since its debut. We're betting they will.)

Here are some other twosomes we think have chemistry, whether romantic, bro-mantic or … sis-mantic? Is that a word?

Khloe Kardashian 'Knows Robert Kardashian Isn't Her Father, Won't Take DNA Test Until Trust Fund Pay


Earlier this year Khloe Kardashian was pressurised by her family to take a DNA to prove whether or not Robert Kardashian Snr is her biological father but according to sources the star refused because she doesn't want to miss out on her trust fund from her father's estate.

Khloe along with sisters Kim and Kourtney and brother Rob are entitled to cash in their trust funds when they hit 35 which is in seven years time for Khloe and doesn't want to take a test until she gets her share.

According to the National Enquirer sources claim that Khloe doesn't believe that she is the natural daughter of the late Robert Kardashian who died in 2003 but won't know for certain until she is 35.

Willie Hantz (yes, Russell's brother) EXPELLED from Big Brother 14 house for being violent

In an unexpected turn of events, Willie Hantz of Dayton, Texas was physically removed from the Big Brother 14 house after assulting a fellow house guest, Joe Arvin, 41, from Schererville, Indiana. Hantz, 34, was taken out of the game for repeatedly head butting Arvin, kicking a door in the house and throwing pork rinds at a female house guest, Janelle Pierzina, 32, from Michigan. (HDU ASSAULT QUEEN JANELLE)

Recounting the exit, Pierzina states that Hantz, upset at finding his team mates put on food and living restrictions as a result of his actions, strode through the house shouting verbal insults at members of the cast. Entering the Head of Household room he told them that they didn't have to hold the others acountable for his mistakes in the game. He ended by saying that he was going to leave the house before the end of the week. True to his word, he encountered Arvin and head butted him when he stood in Hantz' s path.

Shortly after, when house guests came down from the upstairs, he challenged them and they responded, telling him that they could move about the house. He responded by cursing at Pierzina and throwing pork rinds at her, before heading to the bathroom of the house and head butting Arvin again. At this point Big Brother removed Hantz from the show in violation of their "no violent physical contact" rule.

Hantz has had a previous encounter with the law. Recently he was charged when he allegedly assaulted the boyfriend of a former girlfriend. Those charges were later dropped.

As a result of his removal from the game, Hantz will forfeit his pay for the entire stay in the house and he will also be forced to pay his own way home. He will not be eligible to attend the finale nor attend any cbs sponsored cast party. 


Honestly? BYE BITCH. He was a sore loser and got pissed off that not everything was going his way. He also called Janelle a cunt and was making everyone in the house extremely nervous and anxious for a solid hour before his blow up. Willie was a fucking asshole his entire time in the house, probably because he felt that he had a lot to prove against his brother who was also a flop on Survivor. His nephew Brandon was also a flop on Survivor, who also found it a good idea to record and upload this lulzy video to youtube in support of Uncle Willie:

Kile Glover, Usher's Stepson, Has Died


Usher's 11-year-old stepson has passed away this morning from injuries suffered in a tragic jetski accident in Georgia earlier this month ... TMZ has learned.

Doctors removed 11-year-old Kyle Glover from life support after it was determined the injuries were too severe to overcome. We're told Kyle's mother, Tameka Foster, struggled tremendously with the decision.

According to our sources, Tameka is understandably devastated.

Glover was injured on July 8 ... as he was riding in an inner tube that was connected to a pontoon in Lake Lanier. According to authorities, a family friend who was riding a jetski behind the pontoon lost control and collided with Glover's tube.

The accident is currently under investigation. source

Nick Cannon: Mimi worth $100M for Idol because she is a fucking legend/mother of DemBabies

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon has confirmed the pop superstar is in talks to become a judge on TV talent show American Idol - but he insists she won't come cheap.

The Hero singer has been linked to the chair vacated by Jennifer Lopez last week and her husband, who hosts rival talent show America's Got Talent, admits she is interested.

But he is keen to make sure Carey's potential move to TV is a worthwhile one - and he's not left holding their twin babies.

He says, "They want her, I know that... but I ain't letting her outta the house for less than $100 million.

"They've (producers) got to step up if they want that. That's Mariah Carey, she's got more number ones than anyone ever. She's the biggest singer/songwriter in the history of music; that's worth something.

"And who's gonna watch my kids if she goes on American Idol?" (wut?)


I get that he is probably joking, but he is right about 1) she is a legend 2) she is a mother and her schedule is tight. I hope if she is confirmed on the panel, dembabies will make surprise guest stars. But really, why the fuck does Mariah needs to stay home while he gets to do his "jobs". She's fucking Mariah Carey, Nick.

Mariah Carey Finalizing Deal To Judge 'American Idol'

Deadline reports the superstar singer would earn more than $17 million for one season.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Mariah Carey's songs might officially be off-limits on "American Idol": The diva is reportedly finalizing her contract to become a judge on the singing competition.

According to Deadline, if Carey's deal goes through, she will earn more than $17 million for one season — eclipsing Britney Spears' reported $15 million paycheck for "X Factor."

After last week's "Idol" judging shakeup, which saw Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler head for the exits after two years on the job, Carey was one of the first names rumored to be in the running. The superstar's hubby, Nick Cannon, wasn't sure at the time whether "Idol" had deep enough pockets. "I don't know if they can afford Mariah Carey," Cannon told TMZ on Sunday. "That's a lot of money."

Well, looks like "Idol" might have come through. This isn't the first time Mimi has been rumored as the next "Idol" judge. In 2010, the songstress was reportedly considered for the 10th season after the show originally passed on J.Lo.

If Carey is officially onboard, one big question remains: Who will sit next to her? There's been no word so far about whether lone remaining judge Randy Jackson will stick around for season 12, but Us Weekly reported last week that he is considering a lateral move from judge to mentor on the show.

While everyone from Nicki Minaj to Katy Perry has been proposed as Carey's possible seatmates, one person has thrown her own name in the ring: Aretha Franklin.

In an email to CNN, the 70-year-old Queen of Soul expressed some R-E-S-P-E-C-T for "Idol," saying she'd like to come onboard for the 12th season. And according to the news outlet, she wouldn't want to come alone, suggesting Patti LaBelle join her and "Idol" vet Jackson.


MiMi Announces New Single "Triumphant"

@MariahCarey: So I can finally announce to you that my new single is coming out early August! It's called TRIUMPHANT (Get 'Em) ft. Rick Ross & Meek Mill (hew?)

@MariahCarey: I wrote TRIUMPHANT when I was going through a difficult time & it helped me get through it. When u hear it, pay attention 2 the lyrics #WIN

Exclusive: Well, I wrote this more than a week ago, but I’ll tell you again. Randy Jackson, the original “American Idol” judge, manages Mariah Carey. He’s also producing her new album. On Tuesday this past week, Randy flew out to the Hamptons by helicopter from New York to see Mariah for a couple of hours. He was in the city promoting his new line of watches for HSN, which debuted last night.

Randy is bringing Mariah to “Idol” to join him as a judge. It’s the perfect situation. They can finish their album, and Mariah can settle in for a couple of years, hopefully, as her twins are in their formative years. “Idol” will keep her close to home. Plus, when said album is released, it will give her an automatic platform from which to  launch and promote it.

Now here’s the newest news: The first single from the album, I am told, is a song called “Triumphant.” When all the “Idol” contracts are signed, and the deal is finalized, both Randy and Mariah will be exactly that–Triumphant. And “American Idol” will be a fun show to watch again. Unlike Jennifer Lopez, Mariah can sing, sing, sing. No doubt we’ll hear a lot of warbling from the judges’ table.

Now we’ll have two members of the same family on competing reality-singing shows because Nick Cannon, Mariah’s hubby, host “America’s Got Talent.” The Carey-Cannons have talent, too!

So many feels right now. What are you hoping her new single will be like? I hope its a complete divergence from the predictable, formulaic stuff she's been putting out in recent years. I want me some 90s inspired R&B I can pussy pop to in da club a la Fantasty. And no more of this whisper b.s. either. Bitch you betta SANG yo ass off!

Little Big Town's "Pontoon" is the Summers Hottest Song

Little Big Town‘s latest single, “Pontoon,” is shaping up to be one of the summer’s hottest songs, and the members of the band were fans of it from the moment they first heard it.

Band member Karen Fairchild sings lead on “Pontoon.”  Her husband and band mate Jimi Westbrook tells Suite101.com, “I think the groove is really cool, different and sexy.  That kind of lyric was a little unexpected coming from a girl.

“Pontoon” has become a real highlight of Little Big Town’s concerts too.  Jimi says, “The fans have responded so amazing, and when we play it in the live setting the people go crazy for it.”

Little Big Town’s new album, Tornado, will be out September 11 featuring “Pontoon.”

Literary feuding sinks to new low

Bullying by book reviewers is rife, but how can a website claiming to out the worst offenders hide behind anonymity?

Former mechanic Xzibit takes a shot at Frank Ocean to gain relevancy

Schermata 07-2456130 alle 4.57.29 PM

When recent years have seen your career become a shadow of what it used to be, there is a tendency by some artists to lash out at their younger and commercially potent rivals.

Unfortunately, like many a Hip Hop icon of yesteryear, 37 year old Xzibit has found himself in that very situation this week, mocking chart topping vocalist Frank Ocean over his recent sexuality-baring letter.

Quite interestingly, the MC’s dig comes hours before news of his new album ‘Napalm‘ hit the net.

Perhaps, in realizing he has lost the pull that turned ‘Pimp My Ride‘ into a ratings smash, taking aim at Frank is his way of generating attention for a project we’re sure is just waiting to gather dust at a car boot sale near you.


Reese Witherspoon producing Gone Girl adaptation

It seems like just about everyone’s talking about Gillian Flynn’s latest novel, Gone Girl, and naturally the property’s film rights became a major get. Per Deadline, 20th Century Fox is the winning studio, as they apparently acquired the rights for an amount in the range of seven figures. Pacific Standard’s Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea will produce alongside Leslie Dixon. The book centers a man whose wife disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary, only to have all roads point to him as the woman’s killer. No word on whether Witherspoon would also star in Gone Girl, but she’s got a pretty full plate of upcoming projects at the moment.

Flynn will be handling the screenplay herself, and the author has two other feature film adaptations in development. Amy Adams is attached to star in Dark Places, with Gilles Paquet-Brenner directing, and Paranormal Activity guru Jason Blum is producing Sharp Objects.


I really hope she does not star as Amy, idk if she can even do gritty roles anymore

Craig Ferguson is a late night host with a huge heart

Craig Ferguson pretaped his Friday night show on Thursday before the Aurora, Co and in that monologue he talked about The Dark Knight Rises. So the CBS Late Late Show host came in on his day off and recorded a special message to replace the monologue. He words and the way he said gave me chills because it was so heartfelt. You can tell he was sincere as he talked to all of us through the camera. I respect him so much for being real and changing his show because of the day’s events and not just letting it air as it. It shows he is more than a man getting paid for a job, but a person who cares.
And when it comes to his words let’s honor what he said. Thank you Craig for being more than a man who takes the money and hides.

C. Bale & G. Oldman Speak About The Tragedy In Aurora

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
A campaign that has spread through Facebook and Twitter is asking “Batman” star Christian Bale to make the trip in his Batman costume from Gotham City to visit children injured in the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting.

“All those kids in the hospital recovering from gunshot wounds at the Batman massacre could use a visit from their real hero,” said a post on Facebook. “They need to know heroes can be real too, not just the bad guys.”

The campaign picked up steam on Twitter, using the hashtag #BaleOutAurora.

It was unclear if Bale had heard of the campaign, but the actor released a statement today expressing his condolences to victims of the shooting.

“Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them," Bale said.

Twelve people were killed in the midnight massacre and 58 were injured. It is not known how many of the injured are children.

Oldman, who plays Commissioner Gordon in Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, also released a statement.

"My prayers and deepest sympathies are with the victims and their families of this horrific act."

Both statements follow Nolan's statement on Friday. The director, speaking for the cast and crew, said he expressed their "profound sorrow" for the entire Aurora community.

ONTD, what do you think about the campaign?
[LOTS] Cara

Does Natalie Portman think Christian Bale is “tedious, arrogant & dismissive”?

I’ve believed, with all my heart, that Christian Bale has been a d-bag for years now. Maybe it was the recording of Bale ripping some poor bastard a new one, maybe it was his too-extreme, too-“Method” absorption into his roles, maybe it was just a general vibe. Whatever it is, I’ve never really been all hot and bothered for Bale, and I’m often left with a feeling of utter bewilderment when some of you ladies are all “OMG, Christian Bale is My Fassbender.” Different strokes, etc, and I understand the urge to have a fantasy bone with a d-bag. But Bale is too douchey for even my fantasy life. Anyway, Bale was recently working with Natalie Portman on a film called Knight of Cups. According to The Enquirer, Natalie quickly grew a giant hate-on for Bale.

I believe some of this, and I’ve put the rest of it on co-sign lay-away. I do think it’s a matter of interpretation – Bale is known for being an OCD perfectionist, for going to extreme lengths with his “Method” and for being a difficult actor to work with. Does it follow that Natalie would label hin as “tedious, arrogant and a disgrace to the acting profession.” Tedious? Sure. Totally. Arrogant? I could see that. But a disgrace to the acting profession? Eh. Even though I’m sure he’s a miserable person in real life, and a miserable coworker, he does put all of it on screen. He is one of the best actors out there right now. He’s a great actor… and a terrible person.


Warner Bros considers editing or delaying Gangster Squad in the wake of the Colorado theater tragedy

Warner Bros. is contemplating changes to its upcoming thriller "Gangster Squad" in the wake of Friday's movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo. during a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises."

The film, scheduled for release Sept. 7, features a key scene in which mobsters open fire on a theater audience from behind a movie screen. Automatic gunfire rips through the screen as horrified filmgoers rush for the exits and police try to stop the mayhem.

Trailers for "Gangster Squad" prominently feature the scene. The 1940s period piece, centered on gangster Mickey Cohen's attempted takeover of Los Angeles, stars Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling and comes from "Zombieland" director Ruben Fleischer.

After the news of Friday's shooting, Warner Bros. pulled the trailer from theaters. It had been playing in front of movies including "The Dark Knight Rises." In addition, the trailer is no longer available to watch on websites such as YouTube.

Studio executives are discussing the possibilities of pushing the release date and recutting the film to minimize the theater shooting scene or remove it altogether, according to two knowledgeable people not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

As a result of the editing plans, Warner is considering canceling a "Gangster Squad" test screening planned for later this month, the people added.

Cutting the scene won't be an easy task. It serves as a climactic moment, and even shortening it could hurt the noir action film's narrative arc. As a result, any significant changes might require shooting new scenes.

Regardless of whether there are re-shoots, it's possible Warner will delay the release of "Gangster Squad" in order to distance it from Friday's shooting rampage.

A studio spokeswoman did not respond to requests for comment.


Iggy Azalea signing with Roc Nation? + New Shoots + New Face of Levi's!

Iggy Azalea is headed to Roc Nation!

Well- that is if a recent Tweet by the ‘Murda Bizness‘ creator is anything to go by.

A tweet, which saw her confirm she was to meet the management/label who house its founder Jay-Z, Rihanna, MIA, Rita Ora and if reports are to be believed- Pop philanthropist Shakira.

She’s already down with T.I., but she doesn’t have a deal in place. And she’s got an album set to drop this fall. Well, she tweeted: “On my way to go meet the lovely people at roc nation before my shoot. :-)” I guess she may have a situation soon if the rumors are correct.

If Iggy is indeed to sign with ROC, let’s hope she’s learned from earlier mistakes and says sayonara to Grand Hustle…forever.

For, perhaps by way of naivety or lack of common sense, Azalea signed to a group with no record of launching sustainable careers in the way ROC can boast feats scored by Rihanna and Cash Money with Wayne, Drake and now Nicki Minaj.

Indeed, as harsh as this sounds, it seems Iggy let her inner-fan get the best of her, rejecting a deal at Interscope (Lady GaGa, 50 Cent, Eminem) when the label requested she drop T.I. from her project.

Its not the first time she met with The new Roc and now that she needs a “home,” its looking more evident that she’ll land there.

So, here’s hoping something good came from her meeting yesterday, and encourages the starlet to take control of her otherwise promising career.

Lenovo CEO gives part of his bonus to employees

Yang Yuanqing, the CEO of China's biggest PC maker gave a portion of his bonus to employees.

In the age of fat payouts and lucrative perks for company executives, the CEO of Lenovo is getting attention for how he used his bonus.

Yang Yuanqing distributed $3 million from his bonus among 10,000 junior-level employees, the China-based technology company confirmed Thursday. The employees, such as receptionists, production-line workers and assistants, each received an average bonus of 2,000 yuan, which is $314, in the name of their CEO.

Yang had received the additional $3 million boost in his bonus after the company had its best fiscal year ending in March.

The $30 billion personal technology company saw a 73% bump in net profit from the previous year, which Yang had described as a "record-setting year for Lenovo," according to a press release.

Yang had earned $5.2 million in bonuses for the fiscal year ending in March. His total earnings, including salary, incentives and other benefits, amounted to $14 million, according to the company's annual report.

Miley's Brother Was 'Choking on his own blood'

"Then one day he woke himself up because he felt something running down his throat. He sat up and started spewing blood out of his mouth.” Bleeugh.

The South-Sudanese refugee qualified for the Olympics last October after meeting the Olympic "A" standard with a run of 2 hours, 14 minutes and 32 seconds at the 2011 Twin Cities Marathon. All that was missing after that display of talent was a country to represent in the Olympics.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) requires athletes to be full citizens of the countries they represent. Though Marial has lived in the U.S. for 11 years, he has yet to gain full citizenship and his status as a permanent resident isn't enough to allow him to wear red, white and blue at the games.

Television Critics Association Coverage of Downton Abbey

"Downton Abbey" was already a moderate-sized phenomenon last July when we got our Season 2-previewing Television Critics Association press tour panel last summer. That was a big deal, but it's nothing compared to the build-up for Saturday's (July 21) TCA panel, which is the centerpiece of PBS' weekend, with a panel, an associated buffet dinner and a subsequent reception.

I already had a 10-minute sit-down with Brenda "Mr. Bates!" Coyle earlier this afternoon and I'll post that soon.

But here's the live-blog from the panel, which features creator Julian Fellowes, as well as many of the show's stars.

'Battlestar Galactica' exec Ron Moore to adapt 'Outlander' novels

Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore is to adapt the Outlander novels for cable television.

The book series - which has sold over 20 million copies - follows British Army nurse Claire Randall as she is transported back in time from 1945 to 18th-century Scotland, embarking on an epic romance with Scots warrior Jamie.

Sony Pictures TV has picked up the rights to the novels, with Moore hired to adapt author Diana Gabaldon's original work, Deadline reports.

Moore's past work includes writing credits on two Star Trek series, as well as showrunner and co-showrunner roles on Roswell, Carnivàle and Battlestar Galactica.

Last year, he was reported to be working on the Western series Hangtown for ABC, while other past projects include a mooted remake of The Wild Wild West and NBC sci-fi pilot 17th Precinct.

Moore will pitch Outlander to cable networks this week.
