Blame It On the Rain
Back in April of last year we first learned that Russell Crowe signed on to play the lead role in the Darren Aronofsky Biblical epic film Noah, which promises to be “scary as Hell”. Shortly there after we learned that Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ray Winstone and Logan Lerman also signed on to the film. Today, we get to see these actors in character as they will appear in Noah. As you can see in the gallery of promo photos presented here, the photos have a bit of a Lord of the Rings-type feel to them. Despite the Biblical subject matter, I believe Aronofsky is going to try and give us an exciting, aventure film that may resonate with fantasy movie fans. We shall see. For now, peruse the photos and see what you think. Do they make you exclaim OH MY GOD! in a good way … or a bad way?
Meet Her 9 Month Old Son!
Back in July of last year we learned that happily married actors Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze, Jr. were expecting the birth of a baby boy … in September, we learned that SMG gave birth to that boy … in November, we learned that the couple named their son Rocky James. Today, all these months later, we finally get our first look at the little dude. SMG and FPJ didn’t show off their son in the pages of any magazine … and, seemingly, they’ve been able to keep him under wraps all this time. But, at long last, we finally get to meet Rocky James Geller-Prinze … who is 9 months old and totally adorable. More »
'I was very protected during Harry Potter'
Would you believe I finally, finally saw The Perks Of Being A Wallflower the other night? That movie had been on my watch list for ever and I was so excited to just sit down and see what it was all about. Ultimately, I think my expectations were a little high, but I still really enjoyed the movie. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend. It takes a very interesting approach to the traditional ‘high school sucks’ narrative, and if you’re a fan of Emma Watson you’ll probably enjoy watching her take on a role worlds away from Hermione. Emma‘s becoming quite the little fashionista in her own right, and she recently scored the cover of Teen Vogue. Click inside for more!
Coming in August
Last Sunday we learned the happy news that Morrissey is releasing a concert film of his March 2013 concert performance at Hollywood High School (an amazing show that I saw with my friend Tamar). Morrissey 25: Live will hit movie theaters in August before it is released on DVD/Blue Ray … but today we get to check out the first footage from the film in the just released trailer for 25: Live. Check out the embed above to get a small taste of what it was like to see Morrissey perform live, in concert, in the auditorium of Hollywood High.

“Moment of Joy”
In the wake of the historic Supreme Court rulings this week that struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act as unconstitutional and invalidated California’s Proposition 8, which further expanded same-sex marriage rights in this country, a great many people have been celebrating the advancement of marriage equality here in the US. President Obama himself spoke out in support of the rulings during his visit to Africa the day after the rulings were announced. A little closer to home, a same-sex couple who have been living together for about 44 years are also celebrating the same-sex rulings issued by the Supreme Court. Bert & Ernie, two beloved characters from the children’s program Sesame Street, are featured together on the cover of next week’s issue of The New Yorker magazine and as you can see below, they are basking in a moment of joy of the expansion of same-sex marriage rights in this country.

Directed by David Lynch
Yesterday we learned that the music video for the new Nine Inch Nails single Came Back Haunted would be released today at noon … but the video was actually released just moments ago. As you may recall, we learned earlier this month that David Lynch signed on to direct this video and as you can see in the embed above, it’s an interesting collaboration between Lynch and NIN mastermind Trent Reznor. The video comes with this warning:
WARNING: This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised
The warning is no joke … I don’t even have epilepsy and I think I felt a seizure coming on while watching the clip. Check out the video and see what you think about it. If you like flashing lights and super quick cuts, then I’m sure you’ll love this video. The photosensitivity warning is no joke, tho. Proceed with caution.
Yesterday our dear Britney Spears gave us a sneak peek of the music video for her new single Ooh La La but she’s not quite ready to release the video for us to see … yet. She IS ready for us to see the lyric video for Ooh La La, which is out today and posted here for your viewing pleasure. It’s a pretty decent lyric video, I guess, in that it’s a video that features the lyrics to the song but … I’m just really anxious to see the damn music video already :) While we wait, I guess we can enjoy this lyric video … I guess.
Explicit Language Ahead
On Tuesday, M.I.A. released the music video for her new single Bring the Noize. Today she has unleashed a second video for the song that is almost exactly the same as the first video except that this second version is all gold … and it features uncensored, explicit language. Click the embed above to see the video for Bring the Noize (Matangi Gold Edition) … and, enjoy?
