Kanye West just attacked an 18-year-old guy inside the waiting room of a chiropractor's office ... TMZ has learned.

Kanye and Kim were in Beverly Hills when they were swarmed by photogs. We're told the 18-year-old came to Kim's rescue and held the door of a medical building open so she could get in. As Kim walked, the guy allegedly said, "F**k these fa**ot-ass n****rs"" -- referring to the paparazzi. Kim then told her it was not appropriate to use the N word. We're told he then screamed at her, "F**k you bitch. Just trying to help you. Shut up n****r lover, stupid slut."

Apparently that got Kim hot as fish grease ... she watched the guy walked into an office. A short time later Kanye arrived and went into the office.

Sources say Kanye and Kim rushed into the waiting room of chiropractor Richard Hill and found the 18-year-old sitting there. Witnesses say Kanye punched the guy and Kim screamed, "We have it all on tape."

Sources say the massage therapist in the office separated the 2 men. Beverly Hills cops were called and the 18-year-old said he wanted to press charges.

Dastardly, British and Brand New to the Super Bowl

PAUL REVERE is recalled for shouting — whether or not he really did — “The British are coming! The British are coming!” Repeat that another time and you will summarize the plot of the first commercial that Jaguar will run during a Super Bowl.

The commercial — a 60-second spot scheduled for the second half of Super Bowl XLVIII, to be broadcast by Fox on Feb. 2 — will feature three British actors famed for portraying villains: Tom Hiddleston, Ben Kingsley and Mark Strong. (Actually, “The British are coming!” applies to the commercial four times in that its director, too, is British: Tom Hooper, who directed films like “The King’s Speech.”)

The dastardly roles of the actors inspire the theme for the commercial and for a six-month campaign that will follow it: “Good to be bad.”

The campaign for the car brand with the British heritage, estimated at more than $25 million, also involves teaser commercials, one of which, with Mr. Kingsley, began running on Saturday; a dedicated landing page, britishvillains.com, on the Jaguar USA website; a “Good to be bad” blog, produced by Gawker Media; content in social media, signaled by a hashtag, #GoodToBeBad; print, online and outdoor ads; partnerships with IFC, Pandora and Sports Illustrated; and ads that will wrap F train subway cars.

If you've been following these recent Lost Girl posts and the comments, you are possibly [Spoiler (click to open)]not surprised that I have a bit of an issue with this episode, haha.  I got a bit carried away with OP comments on this, which I normally don't include a lot.  I am somewhat mollified by a welding Kyle Schmid with a beard, but this father thing has been going on since S1.  How long can you drag this out, show?  I'm seriously thinking that we are going to find out who Liz's father definitively is on The Blacklist (which is still in its first season and the father thing is a HUGE plot point) before they are going to do so on Lost Girl.  Maybe Aife had an immaculate conception.  Or succubi in this universe can asexually reproduce.  ;-P

Also, Lost Girl S4 started last night (Mondays 8pm/7pm Central) on SyFy in the US (watch it legally streaming, at least, if you can), and will begin airing this Thursday, January 16th, at 10pm on SyFy in the UK, for all of you UK peeps that have been saying over and over in the comments that you wanted to catch up (*cough* prophecypro).

The ~Scandal~ Behind Hayden Panettiere's Golden Globes Dress

Hayden Panettiere has been a red carpet staple since her child actress days (Raising Helen, anyone?), opting for ladylike designs from the likes of Roberto Cavalli and Marchesa for her recent awards show appearances. But never before had she worn Tom Ford—until last night, that is. "It's the first time I've ever worn him, because I've been begging ever since," Hayden described to Giuliana Rancic during E!'s Golden Globes red carpet show. "I feel sexy in it, I feel comfortable in it, and I'm in Tom Ford. I would wear a plastic bag if it was designed by him."

Kim K To File Police Report: He Threatened To Kill Me

Kim Kardashian klaims was threatened by the man who allegedly kalled her a "n****r lover" and she's filing a police report against him for making kriminal threats. The blow up happened at a Beverly Hills medical building in which Kim says the guy screamed at her, "I WILL KILL YOU, SLUT".

The 18 year old had been yelling at paps outside the building as Kim showed up. He apparently tried to help her get in the building and stated "They're whack, dude. You have to deal with that everyday?" He then began to rant at photogs, calling them "n****rs" and "f****ts". Kim asked him to not use that language.

It kulminated in konfrontation in a khiropractor's waiting room when Kim kalled Kanye. He then barged in and punched the guy in the face. Kanye is now a suspect in a kriminal battery investigation. Kim has already met with her lawyer and they decided they will mount a kounterattack by filing a police report.

Kanye is already facing battery charges for his LAX assault on a photog, and the L.A. City Attorney wants to use every konfrontation to prove Kanye has an M.O. This isn't going to help his kause.


The Bachelor: Questionable Costume sparks controversy

Monday on “The Bachelor,” it was time for the girls’ first group date. And this one involved each them dressing up in different costumes and taking photos with dogs and Juan Pablo.

Some of the girls wore sexy bikinis, others donned silly fire hydrants, while a few sported nothing at all. Unfortunately for dog-lover Kelly, she was placed in a bald cap and painted brown, making it look as if she were wearing blackface makeup. And while none of the girls or Juan Pablo noticed the potentially insensitive costume.

Batman Will Be Coming To Fox’s "Gotham" After All

Jim Gordon won’t be the only iconic DC character featured in Fox’s Gotham! Young Bruce Wayne’s journey to becoming Batman will be a focus of the series.


Fox’s Gotham — a potential new television series for the 2014-15 season — was originally described as the origin story of Commissioner Jim Gordon and the villains who made Batman’s gritty and dark hometown famous, but no one knew if the iconic Caped Crusader himself would actually make an appearance.
Well, the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Kevin Reilly, Fox’s entertainment chairman, not only revealed that Batman would be part of Gotham, but took things one step further. “The final episode of the series will be Bruce Wayne putting on the cape,” he said. Wayne himself will be around “12 or so” when the series begins. “This is an origin story,” said Reilly. No casting has been announced for Bruce Wayne or Jim Gordon.

JWoww Medicated Due To Weight Loss

JWoww knows what it feels like to be hung over. And boy is she feeling it these days. But it's not because she's drinking. The mommy-to-be has had a bad case of morning sickness.

"I was put on [anti-nausea medication] Zofran because I lost nine pounds in three weeks," the MTV reality star exclusively tells E! News. "I have been feeling hung over every day or I'm hugging the toilet." But she added, "I'm cool with it."

This means she's had to give up her gluten and dairy-free diet. "The only thing that settles my stomach is cereal and Greek yogurt," JWoww said. "Every morning, Roger gets me water and a bowl of cereal but as a joke he always puts something in my cereal," JWoww said. "Last week, I got a prune then a baby carrot and then a hardboiled egg in its shell. I think he gets a kick out of it and hearing me scream at him."

They haven't picked baby names yet because they want to wait until they find out the sex of the little one. JWoww announced she was pregnant with her and Mathews' first child on Christmas Day.

"Roger and I couldn't have asked for a better Christmas gift this year! We wanted to share this exciting news with you all first because you have been a part of our lives these past few years and seen the love between Roger and I develop and blossom," she posted on her website.

"We are so excited to share this new chapter of our lives with you as we become parents and create more memories with a new addition to our family!" she continued. "Thank you for all your love and support and for being there for us throughout the years! We are extremely happy and cannot wait for our bundle of joy to arrive!"

The couple got engaged in September 2012. The season finale of Snooki & JWoww airs tonight at 10 p.m. on MTV.

The Recipe that Helped Jessica Simpson Lose 8lbs in 2 Weeks

When Jessica Simpson gave birth to her son, Ace, in June 2013--just a little more than a year after delivering daughter Maxwell--it was time to get serious about shedding the extra pounds she had put on following two consecutive pregnancies.

After bidding a fond farewell to some of her favorite snacks and calorie-laden meals (think Froot Loops, fried chicken, and mashed potatoes with gravy just for starters), she turned to Weight Watchers' new two-week "Simple Start" plan to slowly ease back into a regular diet and exercise regimen.

"After almost two years of eating pretty much whatever I wanted, I didn't want to feel like I had to totally deprive myself of all the foods I loved, not to mention an occasional glass of wine," Jessica says. "What was so great about this plan was that it wasn't about sacrifice. I was eating real food, there was still room for the occasional indulgence, and I never felt like I was suffering. I lost 8 ½ pounds in the first two weeks and that really got me motivated for the journey ahead."

Gemma Arterton interview: 'I had some bad experiences in Hollywood'

Actress Gemma Arterton explains why she is rethinking her career and taking on a lead role at Shakespeare's Globe's new theatre.


I meet former Bond girl Gemma Arterton as she takes a break from rehearsals for her latest play. She is casually dressed, with tousled hair and no make-up. In conversation she turns out to be a mix of serious actor and down-to earth Gravesend girl, and she guilelessly reveals – before the official announcement, although after months of speculation – that later this year she will star in a major West End musical, adapted from the film Made in Dagenham. But we’re actually here to talk about her return to Shakespeare’s Globe in London, where she made her stage debut as an acclaimed Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost in 2007, straight out of Rada.

Young The Giant Finds inspiration for new album in Wilco, Nature Videos & a Haunted House

For Young the Giant, Mind Over Matter is more than the title of their latest album, it’s what they told themselves to get over the pressure of making a second record. ”We’ve done it once before,” lead singer Sameer Gadhia said in regards to their 2010 self-titled debut, which spawned the hit singles, “My Body” and “Cough Syrup.” “But it was a long time ago.”

After releasing their first album, the band spent two and a half years on the road. Guitarist Jacob Tilley told Radio.com that by the time they were done touring, they were all ready for a break and a chance to recharge their batteries.

“When we did the first record it was very blind faith that it was gonna work,” he said. “We were happy to be recording, taking time off school and having all this buzz around us. It was very exciting, but we toured for a long time and changed as musicians and as people. We wanted to have some time to really decompress with each other and really think about what we were as a band.”

They admit though that they were away longer than they would have liked, due to a bout of writers block that had them struggling to find their sound again. It was writing “It’s About Time” that helped the guys bounce back and ended up becoming the first single off Mind Over Matter, mostly because Gadhia couldn’t stop playing it. “There’s a level of frustration in the song that’s just from the music itself,” Gadhia explained.Collapse )

The album comes out January 21! But it is now streaming on Itunes!

Miami Heat visit White House for the second year in a row

LeBron James has spent the past decade as arguably the most polarizing, scrutinized and criticized athlete in the world. The Miami Heat star forward and four-time league MVP has learned to adjust and thrive under the intense spotlight throughout his career.

But not even James could imagine what it would be like to work under the global spotlight and walk in the footsteps of the president of the United States. James wouldn't mind playing a game of one-on-one with President Barack Obama on the White House basketball court. But just don’t ask James to sub for Obama in the Oval Office.

“It’s a tough job,” James said Monday. “Obviously, I don’t know the ins and outs about it, the daily regimen. But I wouldn't want to have those shoes. That’s why it’s always important who we vote for, getting the right guy to lead our country, because there are so many things we have to do.”

If any sort of presidency is in James’ future after his playing days are done, it’ll be as the chief executive of a major sports franchise or marketing firm. Politics never have been his thing. That’s why when the Heat make their second trip to the White House in as many seasons on Tuesday to commemorate their second consecutive NBA championship from the 2012-13 season, James will again enter the most powerful building in the world with a full appreciation of how difficult a task it is to be president.

Gillian Anderson, Science Fiction Novelist

'The X-Files' star Gillian Anderson to pen sci-fi book series for new Simon & Schuster imprint
Gillian Anderson is returning to the genre that made her a cultural icon – but it’s not on television. The newest project from the star of The X-Files is a book franchise called the EarthEnd Saga, a collaboration with co-writer Jeff Rovin, a prolific geek whose extensive bibliography includes works in the best-selling Tom Clancy’s Op-Center series. The first novel, entitled A Vision of Fire, will be published in October by Simon & Schuster through a new imprint devoted to literary and speculative fiction across all genres called Simon451, a nod to legendary author Ray Bradbury’s dystopian/sci-fi classic Fahrenheit 451.

“It’s been a fantastic experience,” Anderson tells EW, adding that she was inspired to give sci-fi world-building and storytelling a shot at the encouragement of Rovin, a friend of a friend. “I enjoy writing, but don’t usually allow myself the time, and I don’t think I’d ever think to write something in this genre without the prodding of someone like Jeff. But I realized I had ideas hidden within me for a series and a lead character, in this case, a heroine.” Referring to The X-Files, she says: “After nine years of living in a semi-science-fictional universe, I think I now have an ingrained knowledge and rhythm for it.”

A Vision of Fire centers on Caitlin O’Hara, a world-traveling child psychiatrist who specializes in treating kids who’ve suffered trauma from natural disasters and war. She’s a grounded personality – she has a son, who is deaf, and everything she knows about the world is challenged when she begins treating a uniquely troubled young girl. Explains Anderson: “Over the course of spending time and helping her and investigating the origins of the girl’s trauma, Caitlin begins to realize that the girl’s behavior is tied to much greater forces in the universe, and as the story unfolds, she must prevent destruction on a grand scale.”

Cheer Perfection Mom Arrested For Raping Minor

A 34-year-old mom who appeared on the TLC reality show "Cheer Perfection" has been arrested on suspicion of raping a boy under 14 years of age.

Andrea Clevenger, Kylie's mom on the show, turned herself in to authorities in Sherwood, Arkansas this morning after two felony warrants were issued for her arrest: one for rape, and one for engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium.

Based on legal documents, the boy is 13 years old. He claims they had sexual intercourse in Clevenger's home as well as oral sex in her vehicle. They also engaged in texting sexually explicit pictures to each other. According to documents, the parents saw the pictures and called authorities in November.

Clevenger has been released on bond and fitted with a GPS monitoring device.

Liam Payne Begs Fans To Leave Him Alone After His Address Is Revealed


Liam Payne has respectfully asked for his fans to stop gathering outside his house, after friends of his gave away his address by posting pics.

The One Direction heart-throb has used Twitter as a platform to ask for Directioners to give him a little space to breathe before, and has indicated that he feels guilty about not wanting to take a picture with his admirers when they congregate by his abode.

He wrote tonight: "I know my friends have tweeted a lot of pictures of my house the past few days but can people please stop coming and waiting outside (sic)".

The star went on: "I'd just like to be able to walk outside as everyone does and enjoy time with my friends, not feel bad for not wanting to take a picture".

Liam, who like his bandmates is enjoying some down-time before their 2014 schedule really gets going, also apologised to anyone he's been rude to over the whole thing.

"Sorry if I've been rude to anyone but I've come to realise if I take one picture more people keep coming everyday xxx hope everyone's good".

The band had a ridiculous 2013; going on a globe-straddling tour, securing another hit album with Midnight Memories and even releasing a movie, the documentary/concert-film This Is Us.

2014 has already got off on a sour note, with the lads having to deny claims that they are at war.

What Do the Golden Globes Winners Tell Us About the Oscars?

The Golden Globes are hardly predictive of the Academy Awards. The former are handed out by a handful of overseas journalists, the latter by some 6,000 seasoned film-industry professionals. But we can still draw some Oscar-themed conclusions from what goes down at the Globes, for three reasons: (a) conventional wisdom tends to be shared among both groups of voters; (b) Globes voters, being journalists, want to be seen as accurate predictors of the Oscars, and vote accordingly; and (c) Academy voters are only human, and not immune to the NBC spectacle the rest of us enjoyed last night. (Nomination voting closed on Friday, but voting on the winners has yet to begin.)

With all that in mind, Vanity Fair digital director Mike Hogan and VF.com Hollywood editor Katey Rich have spent the morning grappling with the burningest question of all: What do last night’s developments mean for this Thursday’s Oscar nominations and, beyond that, the awards themselves, which will be handed out at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles on March 2?

"True Detective": HBO's Biggest Series Premiere Since 2010

HBO's hot new anthology drama True Detectives opened solid in the ratings Sunday night, while comedy Girls returned to a series-high audience.

Despite facing the Golden Globe Awards, HBO's freshman drama debut had 2.3 million viewers — the biggest HBO series opening since Boardwalk Empire in 2010, and just barely edging out the series premiere of Game of Thrones from 2011. True Detective's first replay added another million viewers to the tally. True Detective stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as Louisiana detectives hunting a serial killer. Check out Jeff Jensen's in-depth analysis of the first episode.

Meanwhile Girls returned to a series-high 1.1 million viewers, up 28 percent from the season 2 debut. Guess that TCA question #ragespiral fight about Lena Dunham's nudity didn't hurt the show's popularity (and might have even helped). EW's recap here.

Though it might seem odd to launch a sophisticated premium drama like True Detective against an event like the Globes, the awards show draws fewer viewers than a major prime-time football game — which is what HBO faces most weeks this time of year. Also, True Detective feels like a show that's likely to grow even more in the coming weeks.

Netflix Orders 'Marco Polo' Series From The Weinstein Company

Make way for even more original programming on Netflix. The video-streaming service has ordered nine episodes of "Marco Polo," a series about the 13th century explorer. It joins Netflix's other original offerings, including "House of Cards," "Orange is the New Black" and "Lilyhammer."

The show is produced by The Weinstein Company and will begin shooting soon to debut later in 2014 on the service. Production will take place in Malaysia, with the series set in China.

"[Creator and executive producer] John Fusco and his team have created a timeless tale of power, adventure, betrayal and lust that combines deft storytelling and cinematic ambition," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos says in a statement.

"Marco Polo" was originally developed to air on Starz in 2012, before the network passed on the project. There is no announced cast yet, but Dan Minahan ("Game of Thrones") will also executive produce, along with Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, both of whom will direct the series as well.

The Weinstein Company has a massive slate of planned TV shows that was revealed back in December 2013. Among them are a "Sin City" series, "Book of the Dead" and "10 Commandments."

Dennis Rodman sorry for "certain situations" in North Korea; remains pressed about backlash

Beijing (CNN) -- Dennis Rodman is apologizing. Again.
Last week, he said he was sorry about his bizarre, drunken outburst on CNN about an American citizen held prisoner in North Korea. Now, Rodman says he's sorry about what's going on inside North Korea, a nation renowned for its human rights abuses.

But the eccentric former NBA star known as "The Worm" isn't contrite about his latest puzzling visit to the secretive state.
He said he did nothing wrong by organizing a basketball game last week at a packed stadium in Pyongyang, an event at which he sang "Happy Birthday" to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"I'm sorry for what's going on in North Korea, the certain situations," Rodman told CNN on Monday after arriving at Beijing International Airport from Pyongyang.

He didn't say exactly what those "situations" are. He may have been referring to the reports of horrific human rights abuses by his friend Kim's regime, or to the estimated 200,000 people kept in political prison camps.

Or maybe he was talking about Kenneth Bae, the U.S. citizen sentenced last year to 15 years of hard labor by North Korea on accusations that he planned to bring down the government through religious activities.

He was certainly less boisterous than when he spoke to CNN's Chris Cuomo last week. In that interview, he appeared to suggest that Bae may have done something to deserve his heavy sentence. After his on-air rant drew criticism from Bae's family and others, Rodman apologized, saying he'd been drinking and was under stress.

In Beijing on Monday, returning from a week-long visit to North Korea, he struck a more humble tone.
"I'm not God, I'm not (an) ambassador, I'm no one," he said. "I just want to show the world the fact that we can actually get along in sport. That is it!" Rodman later flew back to the United States, landing at Newark, New Jersey, Monday evening. He left the airport there without talking to reporters.

Jenelle Evan's Discusses Abortion, Current Pregnancy, & Courtland

Her Abortion & Current Pregnancy

I don't regret the abortion. I think I'm prepared for the backlash. I just don't want people judging me off the abortion for this new pregnancy. I want them to understand why I did it and where I was at and where I am now and how much better I am now and that it's OK to have a baby now.

Due Date & Baby Names

I am 16 weeks along now and due June 29th 2014. I let Nathan pick the guy's name which is Kaiser, but we haven't picked a middle name yet and if it’s a girl it’s going to be Lydia Marie.

Nathan As A Father Figure

Jace likes Nathan a lot. Nathan's like, "That's my little Buddy, right?" and Jace is like, "Yeah, I'm your buddy!" They get along perfect. Nathan plays cops and robbers with him and Indians and cowboys. He's really, really interactive with Jace, and I think Jace really appreciates that. He's not just ignored when he comes to our house.

Jace's Reaction To The Pregnancy

He's really excited. Every time we go out to the store, he's like, we can get that for the new baby! He keeps asking me when's the baby going to come out, why is it taking so long? He'll change from "I want a boy" to "I want a girl."

Courtland [Who Allegedly Found Out About Her Abortion From The TM2 S5 Trailer] Getting Released From Jail

Courtland and I have moved on from each other, and are both very happy! I wish him the best, and wish him nothing but happiness! 2014 will be a year of sobriety, happiness, and new beginnings for both of us!

Moffat on Plot Hole Criticisms

Steven Moffat has defended criticisms that his stories contain plot holes.

In an interview with BBC Radio 2, Moffat addressed the issue for both Sherlock and Doctor Who and explained that he thinks clever viewers are able to join the dots themselves and don’t always need an on screen explanation.

He said: “I think people have come to think a plot hole is something which isn’t explained on screen. A plot hole is actually something that can’t be explained.

“Sometimes you expect the audience to put two and two together for themselves. For Sherlock, and indeed Doctor Who, I’ve always made the assumption that the audience is clever.”


Sorry mods for the multiple submissions. I've had a shiteous day today. Hope this one is okay!

Life in Scrambles 2K14™ continues

Police now believe the powdered drug they confiscated at Justin Bieber's house -- allegedly belonging to Lil Za -- may NOT be cocaine ... they think it's probably Molly ... a form of Ecstasy.

Law enforcement sources tell us, they're testing the drug right now and should have results shortly.

In addition to the white stuff, we're told police also found Xanax ... which they believe belonged to Za as well.

If Za was in possession of Molly (MDMA), less is on the line than if it were cocaine.

Cocaine could land him in prison for 3 years, but punishment for MDMA is much less, about 1 year.

As we reported, Za was arrested this morning inside Bieber's home while police were executing a felony search warrant in connection with Bieber's egg attack on his neighbor.


One Direction's Liam Payne apologises for scaring fans after balancing on 34th floor balcony ledge


One Direction’s Liam Payne has apologised for scaring his devoted young fans after he was pictured balancing on a ledge outside his 34th floor flat.
The 20-year-old star was snapped 360ft up after celebrating bandmate Zayn Malik’s 21st birthday in London.
Many fans took to twitter to berate their hero for giving them a scare.
One wrote: “That photo of @Real_Liam_Payneon that balcony really gave me a mini heart attack ... please don’t do that again!”
While another tweeted: “@Real_Liam_ Payne should stop thinking he’s Batman, when he’s not ... Stop climbing on your balcony!”
The photo was posted on the internet by one of his friends but has since been deleted.
Red-faced Liam has now apologised for clambering out onto the exposed ledge of the building - one of the tallest in London.
He said: “You may have seen a photo of me today, taken on top of a building.
“I regret being there and having a photo taken of me.
“I do not endorse any fans trying to repeat this as it is extremely dangerous.
“It was a stupid and irresponsible thing to do. I am sorry.”
rough day for bb Liam.


Justin Bieber's pal Lil Za just pulled a double -- he's getting arrested for a SECOND TIME today ... while STILL under arrest, and it's all over a shattered phone ... TMZ has learned.


Sources tell us Za was minutes from posting bail and getting released from custody after getting busted for drug possession at Bieber's house this morning -- and then for some reason he flipped out and smashed a phone in the jailhouse.

We're told Za is now in the process of being re-booked for vandalism.

Best of all, depending on the value of the phone ... this could also be a felony -- to go along with his felony drug bust.

Carpe diem, Za.

Michel Gondry's Surreal Romance Mood Indigo Picked Up By Drafthouse Films

It’s been far too many years since audiences have gotten to see director Michel Gondry’s imagination make it to the screen in unfettered form, as last year’s The We and the I was centered in reality and The Green Hornet before that was not the kind of fantasy film Gondry fans want to see. Luckily, his next film Mood Indigo looks like his most visually ambitious effort yet, and U.S. audiences will soon be able to see it now that Drafthouse Films has acquired the rights. To celebrate the occasion, they also released a new still from the film, seen above, which unfortunately doesn’t involve miniature musicians or swaths of flowers.

Can't Wait!!!

When Hollywood Lies To Us: Great Trailers, Terrible Movies

Creating a trailer that sells a two-hour film in just two minutes is an art form in itself, especially given the notoriously short attention span of, well, everyone. There's nothing we love more than a truly great trailer, other than cold hard cash, so when a doozy comes along, we're usually salivating for more.

But sometimes, when more comes, it's usually in the shape of a crushing disappointment. Which brings us to eight great trailers which were infinitely better than the movies they were advertising.


What it promised: The Terminator film we deserved after the disappointing third chapter. A selection of crackly glimpses of some awesome apocalyptic imagery along with Bale's moody voiceover and that unforgettable theme kicking in at the end made us very very excited.

What it delivered: Utter disappointment, in spades Aside from some arresting visuals, the plot was half-baked and so the film became a loud mess with no human involvement.

Adam Driver Joins Martin Scorsese's "Silence"

For years, Martin Scorsese has been working on bringing Japanese novelist Shūsaku Endō’s 1966 novel, Silence (沈黙 / Chinmoku) to the big screen, and now it’s finally coming together.

Andrew Garfield and Ken Watanabe joined the cast in the leading roles last year, and now Showbiz 411 reports that Adam Driver has boarded the cast as well.

Scorsese revealed the casting news at HBO’s post-Golden Globes party last night, confirming that production is still on track to begin this summer.

Courtesy of Amazon, here’s the synopsis for the original novel:

Silence is the most important novel of the acclaimed Japanese author Shūsaku Endō.
A Japanese Catholic, Endo tells the story of two seventeenth-century missionaries attempting to shore up the oppressed Japanese Christian movement. Father Rodrigues has come to Japan to find the truth behind unthinkable rumours that his famous teacher Ferreira has renounced his faith. But after his arrival he discovers that the only way to help the brutally persecuted Christians may be to apostatize himself.

The renowned filmmaker is of course coming off the back of the very successful The Wolf of Wall Street, which has been picking up awards and nominations across the board. Leonardo DiCaprio took home the Best Actor award in the Musical or Comedy category at last night’s Golden Globes, and we’re all looking forward to seeing the kind of recognition the Academy gives Scorsese’s latest when the Oscar nominations are announced this week.

Driver was last seen in Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha and the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, and is of course well known for his work on HBO’s acclaimed series, Girls. Alongside Silence, his upcoming slate is incredibly impressive, with roles in Shawn Levy’s This Is Where I Leave You, Saverio Costanzo’s Hungry Hearts, Michael Dowse’s The F Word, and John Curran’s Tracks all expected before the end of the year, as well as reuniting with Noah Baumbach for his anticipated While We’re Young, expected to land sometime next year.

The young actor has been very much on the rise in recent years, and is clearly continuing on that ascending path for the foreseeable future. Landing a role alongside Garfield and Watanabe for Scorsese’s next feature is another great sign that we’ve got a lot to look forward to from him for the years to come.


Girls’ Jemima Kirke on Jessa’s Stint in Rehab, Why She’s Not a Sociopath, and Online Commenters

a_250x375Following her abrupt divorce and heart-breaking confrontation with her dad, Jessa disappeared midway through the last season of Girls. In Sunday’s season three premiere, she reemerged in rehab, where she tore into scrunchies and outed a fellow patient (Orange Is the New Black’s Danielle Brooks). So, not a ton of progress there.

Vulture spoke to Jemima Kirke, who plays bored provocateur Jessa, about where her character went off to after she left Hannah at her dad’s (in real life, Kirke went off to have a baby), whether or not her stint in rehab will do any good, and why she doesn’t like being conflated with her alter ego.

But first, we address last week’s contentious press tour session in which a reporter asked Girls creator-star Lena Dunham if she could explain her nudity on the show.

Well, that was lively.
Yeaaaah. It was awesome.

You didn’t jump in.
I didn’t address it because I was under the assumption [Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow] were going to address it in a very sort of civil way. I thought we were all going to talk about it later and be like, “That guy was an asshole,” so I was so happy to see Judd stick up for us. I was taken aback that he would be so emotional about it, and I thought it was fantastic.

Before we get into Jessa’s stay in rehab, where do you think she ran off to after leaving Hannah at her dad’s last season?
I never thought about it specifically, like, narratively, but I think she was doing much of the same. Being unpredictable, running around with all types. She probably eventually felt she needed a change again, as she does, and she went for the biggest thing she could think of, which was rehab. Anything that makes it seem like she’s moved on.

Just finished the first two episodes. I can see how people would write Jessa off but her character makes me kinda sad.

Kristen Stewart Says She Is 'Terrified' to Star in New Film 'Equals' + Flips Off Paparazzi


Kristen Stewart hops into her car as she leaves Covell Wine Bar with a pal on Monday (January 13) in Los Feliz, Calif.

The 23-year-old actress recently opened up about her new role in Equals alongside Nicholas Hoult.

“I can’t believe I agreed to do it,” Kristen said (via ABC News). I’m terrified of it.”

“Though it’s a movie with a really basic concept, it’s overtly ambitious,” Kristen added. In Equals, things go wrong because you can’t deny the humanity in everyone. It’s the most devastating story.”

Harry Styles takes to court to stop paparazzi hell

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
A COURT order stopping the paparazzi from harassing singer Harry Styles is to continue.

Last month the 19-year-old One Direction star went to London's High Court as a last resort after trying to persuade a number of photographers to stop their behaviour.

On that occasion, counsel David Sherborne told Mrs Justice Nicola Davies that it was not a privacy injunction.

"Mr Styles is not trying to prevent fans approaching him in the street and taking photos. He remains happy to do that, as he always has. Rather, it is the method or tactics which have been used by a certain type of photographer."

The injunction against the unnamed individuals -- "Paparazzi AAA and others" -- prevents them from pursuing the singer by car or motorcycle, placing him under surveillance, loitering or waiting within 50 metres of his place of residence to monitor his movements or take photos.

The judge scheduled another hearing for March 10 which will decide how to proceed.

Johnny Depp Reportedly Eyed for Doctor Strange Movie

Those of you that follow me on Twitter (@LatinoReviewMFR) know that I’ve been teasing all night about a scoop regarding Marvel. Well, it’s now time to open up the bag and show you all my first big kill:

A well-connected source informed me tonight that Johnny Depp has taken a meeting with Marvel to discuss taking on the role of Dr. Strange.


The 50-year-old actor is a comic book fan, and is said to be very interested in jumping onto the Marvel machine. Johnny Depp also happens to have a very fruitful relationship with Marvel’s owner, Disney. It was the mouse house, after all, that took a gamble when it gave the eccentric actor his first leading role in a summer tentpole, Pirates of The Caribbean, and that franchise went on to earn billions (yes, with a “b”) for the studio. He also made them a mint with their live-action Alice in Wonderland film.

While they have Depp on the hook for another Pirates film, it is believed they would shift that production around if he does agree to sign on the dotted line for Marvel.

Hmmmm, he can actually be good and is age-appropriate for the role but whether he can do something different or just phone it in, I dunno... I know he lost a lot of love over... hey we should get a cultural-appropriation tag!! Lorde knows there'd be high demand for it

R.I.P. Mae Young

WWE posted the following statement on Mae Young's passing tonight:
WWE is greatly saddened by the news that WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young, beloved member of the WWE family and oldest living squared circle personality, has passed at the age of 90.

Johnnie Mae Young was truly one of the greatest female competitors to ever lace up a pair of boots. A proud competitor for three quarters of a century and valued part of WWE to her last day, Young truly blazed a path for future female grapplers beginning in the 1940s.

From the moment she first stepped through the ropes, Young established herself as one of the most active and successful female Superstars – including becoming the first U.S. Women's Champion, carrying out one of the most storied rivalries of the time with the legendary Mildred Burke in 1954 and being among the first female competitors to tour post-war Japan.

In addition to her contributions inside the ring, Young played a huge part in training the Superstars of tomorrow, including late, great Hall of Famer The Fabulous Moolah – the longest reigning champion in sports-entertainment history.

In recent years, Young's career received the recognition it deserved. In 2005, she and several of her contemporaries were profiled in "Lipstick and Dynamite," a documentary film about the early pioneers of women's wrestling. In 2008, Young joined co-star, trainee and late friend Moolah and "Sensational" Sherri Martel in the highest class of Superstars, as she became only the third female to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at that time.

The entire WWE Universe offers a standing ovation to a true queen of the canvas and bids Mae Young a heartfelt farewell.

Swoon! Niall Horan Melts Hearts With Smouldering Selfie (hahaha)

Niall Horan has melted hearts of millions of Directioners with a rather handsome new selfie, uploaded to his seldom-used Instagram page.

The star is properly getting his pose on in the adorable snap, which sees him wearing a hoodie with the hood up AND a hat. His head, ladies and gents, is nothing if not warm.

And the angle he's going for? ""I'm relaxed" face," he writes as the caption.

The star is enjoying a rare slice of downtime - clearly - after an absolutely manic year with One Direction.

The boyband star and his bandmates travelled the world on their ludicrously jumbo-sized Take Me Home tour, released a movie - This Is Us - won a plethora of awards and scored the best-selling artist album of 2013 with third set Midnight Memories.

2014 is set to be even bigger - with plans in place for an even bigger tour, this time of stadiums; and also their fourth album, which is presumably due ahead of Christmas.

Niall is believed to be dating Barbara Palvin, who allegedly met the cute Irish crooner's parents very recently.

"But this will be the first time he has taken a girl back home to meet his whole family. It's really exciting," a source told The Mirror. Isn't it just? (Yeah, okay, "a source", don't get so sentimental now)
