She Dreamed a Dream
In the past few days we’ve seen new character posters from the forthcoming new adaptation of Les Misérables that feature Jean Valjean (played by Hugh Jackman), Cosette (played by Amanda Seyfried) and Inspector Javert (played by Russell Crowe). Today we get to see the character poster for Fantine, played by Anne Hathaway. Those of you familiar with the Les Miz story know that Fantine‘s storyline isn’t a happy one … but it is one of the most poignant parts of the plot and the character performs the most famous song of the musical I Dreamed a Dream. Based on what I’ve seen from the promo trailers, it looks like Anne does an excellent job with the role. Click below to see the poster art in full and get a good look of Fantine looking about as well as she ever looks in the film. More »

Babydaddy Drama Of Epic Proportions
This isn’t the first time a French-language movie trailer kinda just changed my life. In fact, it sounds like the movie is so good, an American remake is already in the works, starring Vince Vaughn, Cobie Smulders, Chris Pratt and Britt Robertson. But I think we should see this one first! If you can put aside the general corniness of the English-speaking voiceover, you will totally lose yourself in this hilarious story. Starbuck looks similar to a lot of American movies that focus on a guy who is in no way prepared for fatherhood, which he (naturally) discovers upon getting his girlfriend pregnant. However, in the case of David, he also discovers that– having donated a helluva lot of sperm under the fake name Starbuck (LMAO)– he already is a father. To 533 children. And 142 of them have filed a lawsuit to determine the identity of their biological father. How awesome does this sound?!?! Y’all know I lurve a good French movie and this one’s set in Canada. I’m not familiar with any of the actors but, based on what I just saw, I think we can expect good things. Peep the trailer for more!

The Pilot will Air as a Hallowe'en Special
Earlier this month we learned that NBC is unlikely to pick up the planned reboot series based on The Munsters but it looks like the Mockingbird Lane pilot isn’t going to be wasted. NBC has announced that they will air the pilot episode of Mockingbird Land as a one-off Hallowe’en special later this month. My guess is that NBC will wait and see how the show does in the ratings before the decide to kill the series completely or not. Honestly, it’s not a bad idea. Unfortunately, based on the just-released TV commercial for the Mockingbird Land pilot/Hallowe’en special, the show doesn’t look all that good … at least to me. Check out the commercial above and see what you think. Now that we’ve seen footage of the show, do you think it deserves to be made into a full TV series? Will you be tuning in to watch the Hallowe’en special?

Late last month Ke$ha dropped a new single titled Die Young. Earlier this month, we saw photos from the set of the Die Young music video. Today we learn that the dirty pop star is featured on the cover of the new issue of Billboard magazine. With a new single burning up the charts and the imminent release of a new album of songs, Ke$ha wants us to know that she is coming back with a vengeance … and she’s letting Billboard help her with her promo push. Click below to see Ke$ha‘s Billboard coverphoto which, I’m surprised to say, is quite pretty. More »

He Wants Justice
In the past few days we’ve seen Les Misérables character posters featuring actors Hugh Jackman (as Jean Valjean) and Amanda Seyfried (as Cosette) and today we get to see another character poster — for Russell Crowe as the obsessively villainous Inspector Javert. Those of you familiar with the Les Misérables story from the novel by Victor Hugo or the Broadway musical are well aware of the interaction between these characters. It occurs to me that there are some of you who are not at all familiar with the story and, without context, these character posters might not mean much. Check out the full-size poster below and read a short synopsis of what we can expect from this new big screen adaptation of Les Misérables. More »

"Stolen Footage" Found
This week a story started going around that Justin Bieber‘s laptop computer and camera were stolen from his hotel room. Immediately, people started to wonder if any embarrassing or incriminating footage would be leaked to the Internets (yesterday we heard he was being “blackmailed” by the person who “stole” his computer). It turns out that the story, started by Bieber‘s people, was a “viral ruse” in order to generate hype for the release of his new music video Beauty and a Beat (which features rapper Nicki Minaj). The video, which you can watch in full above, is supposedly made up of the “stolen footage” that was found on Bieber‘s computer … which we now know is bullshizz. Check out the video and see what you think. Are you impressed/annoyed with the idea of Bieber‘s people telling lies to promote the release of his music video?

Plus, Check Out the Album Cover
Late last month Rihanna released the single Diamonds, the first from her then-untitled 7th album (due out next month). Today, Rihanna finally reveals the title of her new album along with the cover artwork for the album. Rihanna announced today on her official Twitter profile that her new album is titled Unapologetic … which, I gotta say, seems like a very aptly titled album (considering the questionable choices she’s been making lately). As you can see below, the album art features a topless Rihanna covered in only the titles of the songs featured on her new album. Check out the cover art below and see what you think. More »
