The TV Guide
After my quick and sorta bizzy weekend in Detroit, I decided that my first day back was going to be really chill. In fact, I’m hoping to make the rest of the week a really quiet one. I’ve been running around a lot lately and, dang it, I just want to do nothing for a few days. With the season 3 premiere of Game of Thrones looming, I’m trying to read as quickly as possible the novel A Storm of Swords in order to get a handle on what’s to come in GoT season 3 before the show airs. I managed to do a lot of reading last night but I did take a break to run out for some Arby’s. What? Don’t judge me. It was a pretty perfect Monday night. More »

The new Superman film, Man of Steel, is due to hit theaters in June but the promo push for the flick is chugging along … very quietly. Back in December we got our first look at the first movie poster for Man of Steel, then we got the second movie trailer for the film (the first tease came back in July of last year around Comic-Con time). Since then, there hasn’t been much promo save for that Empire magazine coverstory in January. Today we get to see some new promo art for Superman books aimed at kids that will tie-in with the Man of Steel release in June. The art was created by Jeremy Roberts and gives us an animated look at what Superman and his nemesis General Zod will look like in the film. The illustrations are neat, check ‘em out below. More »
Back in 1977, Stephen King published his novel The Shining which was adapted in 1980 into a very successful film by director Stanley Kurbrick … a film that endures today, thanks to the brilliant source material, as one of the greatest horror films of all time. This September, all these years later, King will release a new novel titled Doctor Sleep that will pick up where The Shining left off. In Doctor Sleep, Danny Torrance is all growed up … and still shining. Click below to see the book cover in full and read a short synopsis released by Stephen King himself. More »
Universal Studios Says They're In No Rush
Every once in a while we get a bit of news about the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie that’s been in the works for some time. The last rumor we heard about had Krysten Ritter in the running for the role of Ana, but these are all just rumors and very little has been confirmed yet. There is, however, a screenwriter officially attached to the project, and spokespeople from Universal say the movie could possibly hit theatres next summer. Click inside to learn more!

"For over 50 years I never had sex with a male. It wasn’t repressed"
Clive Davis, the man responsible for launching and guiding the music careers of some of the most beloved performers of our time — most notably Janis Joplin, Santana, Whitney Houston and others, is releasing a memoir of his incredible life titled The Soundtrack of My Life. As he promotes the release of his book, Davis is sitting down for interviews to talk about the revelations he makes in this memoir … and has revealed for the first time publicly that he has enjoyed relationships with both women and men. It’s fairly common knowledge that Clive Davis was married twice to two different women but we are learning today that he has also enjoyed romantic relationships with men as well. So cool!! More »
15th Anniversary Editions
Now that all of the Harry Potter books by author J.K. Rowling have been turned into highly successful films and now that those books have finally been made available in e-book editions, it is apparently time to go back to the drawing board in order to find new ways of making money from those books. In honor of the 15th anniversary of the release of the first Harry Potter book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the publisher has announced that all 7 books will be reissued with new cover artwork … which staunchly loyal Harry Potter fans will likely purchase, again. Click below to get your first look at the new cover art for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and learn more about this new set of reissued books. More »
This Movie Sounds Awesome
Y’all. We are going to have to start respecting Dakota Fanning‘s gangsta. The little girl (who I’ll always think of as the voice of Coraline, and Sean Penn‘s daughter in I Am Sam… even though she’s done hella stuff since then, including the Twilight sagas) is all growed up and making movies with the heavy hitters. I’d been hearing about this Sundance film Very Good Girls, and apparently she’s in it, and totally naked. Gotta love indie! And now we’re getting word that she’s starring in this crime drama with Elizabeth Banks and my girl Diane Lane (Unfaithful is still that ish). Dakota‘s playing an adolescent girl accused of murder. So yeah, respect her thespian gangsta, and click inside for more!
"Whitney hid from me"
As we near the one year anniversary of the death of Whitney Houston next month, we are reminded just how painful and fresh the loss is for her mother Cissy Houston. Cissy is releasing a memoir titled Remembering Whitney: My Story of Love, Loss, and the Night the Music Stopped next week and in its pages, she opens up about Whitney‘s life as seen thru her eyes. The memoir covers Whitney‘s entire life, from the start of her career to the sad end of her life … and based on the excerpts below, Cissy talks about pretty much everything we’ve heard about Whitney‘s private life, even if she doesn’t do so in explicit detail. Click below to read some excerpts from Remembering Whitney and get a taste of the Houston memoir that will be released next week. More »
That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Okay; this is hilarious. We’ve seen the interview. We’ve seen the bullshizz tears. And now there’s a movie in the works. But I think the only thing “cool” to come out of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal is this news about a library in Sydney, Australia. Apparently, someone posted a notice in the library informing everyone that all the Lance Armstrong books would henceforth and forever more be located in the Fiction section. LMAO. Now apparently, this was just a joke and the library is now looking into who put up the sign… but it’s still so funny! Click inside to check out the hilarious note.

The Writer Of 'Shame' And 'The Iron Lady' Will Adapt The Script
It’s been a while since I saw a good Shakespearean adaptation on the big screen, but it sounds like one is in the works! Anne Hathaway has had a pretty huge year. She got hitched, covered Vogue, and starred in a little movie called Les Misérables. Having won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress (for Les Miz), there’s a good chance that she’s gearing up for her first Oscar win as well. Fans of the talented star will be happy to know that she’s just been cast in the latest adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Screw. Click inside to learn more!
