Blake & Miranda TURN DOWN Vega$ offer!

image
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert turned down $1 million to perform for ONE weekend in Las Vegas ... a significant sign that Caesars Palace might have a harder time than expected lining up replacements for Celine Dion while she's on hiatus.

TMZ has learned ... Blake and Miranda were offered a cool mil to play 3 shows at The Colosseum at Caesars back in February -- but when the couple countered at $1.25 million, the arena's operator AEG balked.

As we first reported ... Robin Williams and Mariah Carey also turned down similar 6-figure offers, in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

Of course, Celine recently announced she was postponing her residency at the Colosseum until March ... while she cares for her ailing husband.

The clock's ticking ... the venue has about 4,300 seats that will go empty if AEG and Caesars can't line up new talent. Maybe Miranda and Blake's asking price isn't so outrageous after all.

Joan Rivers 'laughed off' procedure the night before .......

image
Joan Rivers laughed about “going in for a little procedure’’ the night before she had the throat operation that left her on life support, a close friend said Sunday.

“She said her throat was bothering her for a long time. Her voice was getting more raspy, if that was possible. She said she was just going in for a little procedure in the morning, that was it,” Jay Redack, Rivers’ former writing partner,, said outside Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan.

Rivers, 81, has been hospitalized since she stopped breathing during the throat procedure at a clinic Thursday. She’s now on life support. “What’s ironic is at dinner [Wednesday night], we were talking about who goes first. I’ve know Joan so damn long,” Redack said. “I said, ‘Here’s what I’ll leave you if I go first. What’ll you leave me?’ She said, ‘I’ll think about it,’ ” Redack said.

Lena Dunham Condemns Naked Photo Leak

image
Lena Dunham has condemned a mystery hacker who leaked nude photographs of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence. The Hunger Games actress hit headlines on Sunday (31Aug14) when intimate snaps of her were posted on the Internet by a hacker who claims to have similar pictures of more than 100 female stars.

Now Girls actress Dunham has reached out to her fans and urged them to discourage the leaking of photos by not viewing them.

In a series of posts on Twitter.com, she writes, "The way in which you share your body must be a Choice. Support these women and do not look at these pictures... Remember, when you look at these pictures you are violating these women again and again. It's not okay... Seriously, do not forget that the person who stole these pictures and leaked them is not a hacker: they're a sex offender."

Lawrence and Mary Elizabeth Winstead have confirmed the authenticity of their snaps while condemning the breach of privacy. Like Lawrence, model Kate Upton's attorney is threatening legal action, saying, "This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton's privacy. We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible.‎"

Did Stan Lee Just Confirmed a Black Panther Movie? Plus Talks Possibility of a Black Widow Movie



How much does Stan "The Man" Lee know about Marvel’s pending film slate? I mean, Stan Lee IS Marvel. Without him, there would be no Cinematic Universe, no characters on which to base these amazing Marvel films that audiences are flocking to (in record-setting fashion). But is the 91-year-old comic-book legend up to date on all of Marvel’s moving pieces? Because if he is, then he just confirmed a Black Panther movie.

Stan Lee was speaking at the Fan Expo Canada on Friday (via Comic Book Resources), and let it slip that the Black Panther movie indeed was happening (instead of being this juicy rumor that no one at Marvel will confirm just yet). When addressing the question of whether or not Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow character soon will get her own solo movie, Lee explained:

"The chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Doctor Strange and the Black Panther, and there are others I am not allowed to talk about."

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed either went to an awesome bachelorette party or they have an amazing sex life ... because the two hit up a Toronto sex shop and walked away with nearly $1,000 worth of stuff.

The couple was spotted at the Seduction Love Boutique on Sunday night. An off-duty employee tells TMZ they saw Somerhalder, but couldn't quite place him ... and commented, "You look like Zac Efron." We're told Ian laughed it off and said, "Nope, wrong guy."

As for the shopping list, we're told they took home a mix of vibrators, handcuffs and restraints ... and rang up a tab of $860.

But can you really put a price on a good time?

Ian was a guest at a FanExpo in Toronto, and Nikki joined him in Toronto with her parents and younger brother. Nikki posted pics of Toronto street art, a vegan eatery, and a selfie with her family on ig. Lovely.

ETA: This shocking development in their very public relationship comes along after several gossip sites have posted articles suggesting trouble in paradise because Ian is 'old and boring.'

Chloë Sevigny, aka Hipster Gwyneth, Says "Jocks" Have Ruined New York City

Chloë Sevigny longs for the good old days. The full-time fashionista and part-time actress sat down with The Daily Beast recently to discuss her role in the upcoming Whit Stillman-directed Amazon Prime show The Cosmopolitans.

However, the conversation quickly turned to the evolution of New York, the city Sevigny has called home since her '90s heyday as queen of the downtown scenesters, and her breakout role in the cult tome to teenage lovemaking, Kids. It would appear that Sevigny still is still nostalgic for those days, and isn't too happy with the current state of her city.

"Walking around the East Village, I just want to cry at the state of it. There are so many fuckin’ jocks everywhere! It’s like a frat house everywhere," the actress said. "I don’t know if it’s a sign of the times, but where are the real weirdos? The real outcasts? They’re a vanishing breed here. Maybe New York isn’t drawing that anymore because it’s too expensive."

In fact, it was the expensive real estate that pushed Sevigny out of Manhattan. "I didn’t want to live in 'hip' Brooklyn, so I moved out to the dorkiest, hokiest neighborhood — Park Slope — and I’m really feeling the vibes out there," Sevigny said about her new digs across the river.

Now all she needs is a time machine.

‘Maze Runner’ on Track for $30 Million Opening



“The Fault in Our Stars” producers could have another hit on their hands this summer — and this time, the boys may join in.

Fox’s “The Maze Runner,” based on the book by James Dashner, is on track for a $30 million opening when it bows on Sept. 19.

That’s quite an impressive feat — not just because the U.S. box office is having its worst summer in nearly a decade, but also because both males and females are saying they will buy tickets, which is unusual for a YA book adaptation. Even action-driven projects like “The Hunger Games” started out with women outpacing men in desire to see the film. And while the “Maze Runner” books are nowhere near as popular as “The Hunger Games” or “Twilight,” appealing to both genders could help the studio launch a movie franchise with the story of a boy whose memory is erased and must try to escape from a maze in which he finds himself trapped.

The studio recently asked “Maze Runner” screenwriter T.S. Nolan to work on a script for the second book in the trilogy, “The Scorch Trials,” but that will, of course, depend on box office results.

"Maps to the Stars" to Get Early 2015 Release

David Cronenberg's drama, which next plays the Toronto Film Festival, may sit out the 2014-15 awards season.

After winning the best actress award in Cannes for “Maps to the Stars,” Julianne Moore was considered a strong bet in this year’s Oscar race for her turn as a washed-up star in the David Cronenberg drama. But the overdue actress, who has been nominated for four Academy Awards without winning, could be sitting out of this year’s awards season.

In a deal that closed last week, Focus World picked up U.S. distribution rights to the Cronenberg drama from Canadian outfit eOne, sources tell Variety exclusively. “Maps to the Star’s” won’t premiere stateside until early 2015.

Focus World is the alternative distribution division of Focus Features, and it hasn’t been decided if the drama will be released on VOD or if it will play in theaters domestically or some combination thereof. “Maps” could get an Oscar qualifying theatrical release at the end of 2014, so that it would at least be eligible for Academy Awards nominations, according to one individual with knowledge, but a movie with that kind of strategy can sometimes get lost amidst the slew of December contenders.

“Maps to the Stars” will screen this month at the Toronto International and New York Film Festivals, which are traditionally launching pads for Oscar contenders. On September 9, Moore is scheduled to appear at a cocktail event following a screening of the film at Toronto.

Scream Queen Neve Campbell To Make First Appearance At Horror Convention

It's still many months away, but the 2015 Texas Frightmare Weekend is already heating up with an impressive guest list. Next year marks TFW's 10th anniversary, and they're pulling all the stops. This latest announcement is the biggest yet!



Neve Campbell, famous for her role as Sidney Prescott in the Scream films, will be making her first appearance ever at a convention at next year's Texas Frightmare Weekend. As is the TFW tradition, she'll be available all weekend long for autographs, photos, and panels.

The actress, known also for The Craft, has never done a convention before so this will be the first time fans will be able to meet her in person whilst in the world of Horror.

After Drew Barrymore turned down the role as Sidney Prescott for the smaller role of Casey, Neve became the lead in 1996's Scream. In many interviews since her debut as Sidney, she had reservations about being known as a Scream Queen, but in recent years she seems to have finally embraced the title.

Neve joins the already announced list that includes Tara Reid, Josh (The Collection) Stewart, C. Thomas Howell, Malcolm McDowell, Joseph ("Game of Thrones") Gatt, and a first-time pairing of I Spit on Your Grave lead Camille Keaton and director Meir Zarchi with MANY more to come.

The 10th anniversary Texas Frightmare Weekend will be at the DFW Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas, running May 1-3, 2015.

"Early bird" rates have already come and gone, but the much-coveted PREMIUM passes go on sale on Saturday, September 6th, at 11:00 am CT. There are only 300 of these sold every year, and they sell out almost immediately. The benefits to this pass are huge so keep an eye on TexasFrightmareWeekend.com for details to grab those premium passes on the 6th!

Sigourney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis have also had their first appearances at Horror Conventions in the past year.

Last Halloween, Neve made an appearance with Robin Tunney and Rachel True for a reunion of The Craft. Fairuza Balk did not appear.

FBI Now Getting Involved In Mass Celeb Nude Leak

The celebrity nude photo leak scandal has reached a boiling point ... and now the FBI is getting involved.

In a statement released Monday afternoon, a spokesperson for the FBI said, "The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter. Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time."



Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton -- the two most prominent names in the leak -- have both expressed interest in pursuing legal action in the matter.

An Apple spokesperson told Recode.net they are "active investigating" whether or not their iCloud system was hacked as part of this leak.

Kirsten Dunst became the latest celeb featured in the leak to comment via Twitter, placing the blame squarely on Apple's shoulders (while also acknowledging the photos are real). She simply wrote, "Thank you iCloud."

Australian cinema is still big; it's the audience that got small


Wolf Creek 2

In January this year Daily Review published an article titled Australian cinema in 2014: 10 films to get excited about. It highlighted a slate of yet-to-be-released features attached to pedigree names including directors David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) and Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and stars Robert Pattinson, Ewan McGregor and Mia Wasikowska.

The article was unusual for the simple and sobering reason that for a long time the Australian media commentariat’s default position, when it comes to matters relating to local films, has been characterised by a far more sceptical mindset than excitement.

There are plenty of familiar criticisms and “end-is-nigh” prophecies synonymous with discussions of the Australian film industry. The most common concern is the industry’s problematic and heavily subsidised financial state — its everlasting struggle to get bums on seats in a market dominated by American content.

The second is about perceptions. Australian producers have long battled public sentiment that locally produced features are one of two things. The first, that they are morose hard-hitting dramas that explore the “human condition.” The sort of stories that follow characters who battle drug addictions, grieve over deceased family members and live dreadfully unhappy lives.

The other perception is that when it’s not busy depressing us with films about cancer and people who collapse in gutters with needles in their arms, Australian films are cringe-inducing “g’day mate” comedies. The sort of facepalm productions geared towards jokes featuring things as stereotypically nationalistic as shrimps on a barbie (thanks, Paul Hogan).

Interesting read.

Seth Rogen speaks out about Hacking Games '14 and isn't a douche.



Over the course of the day we have been seeing a lot of hacked pictures of naked celebrities being leaked online and, while there are a lot of people who cannot get enough of looking at these personal, private and intimate pictures, spare a thought for those who have had their privacy outrageously violated by this hacker, this is their private life after all.

There are certain things that come hand in hand with becoming a global superstar but one of them is not having your phone hacked and your intimate pictures leaked online. There are a whole host of stars who have had naked pictures leaked online, as well at there apparently being some Jennifer Lawrence sex tapes supposedly on the way, as well as Kate Upton sex tapes.

Now, Hollywood actor Seth Rogen has urged people who have seen the picture and videos not to post them online. Rogen took to his official Twitter account to tell his fans and followers, "Posting pics hacked from someone's cell phone is really no different than selling stolen merchandise. I obviously am not comparing women to merchandise. Just legally speaking, it shouldn't be tolerated to repost stolen pics."

Since these nude celebrity pictures leaked online, some of the victims have come out to insist that they are not them or that they are fake, while others have confirmed that their phone was hacked on the stolen pictures are genuine. The authorities have been informed by a number of these stars, who are looking to get anybody who has used these pictures online to be seriously punished.
