At last, the movie is OUT
It has been many years since we first learned that RoboCop was being remade as a new film … waaaaay back in 2008 we first heard that plans were in the works to bring RoboCop back to the big screen but it took a long time for casting to get done and for filming to begin. THEN, the movie release date was pushed back from last summer to this winter … and last night, at long last, RoboCop finally premiered in Hollywood. The movie opens in theaters tomorrow and I’m hearing really good things about it. I’m very much looking forward to seeing this new RoboCop film in large part because it is set in the Detroit, MI of the future. Sigh. Click thru the gallery presented here and see some of the film’s stars, including Joel Kinnaman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman and more, on the red carpet last night. I can’t decide if I’m going to see the movie at midnight tonight or wait until tomorrow. My anxious thirst is real so … we’ll see ;D
"I Am Not Famous Anymore", he says
Shia LaBeouf is doing everything he can, in the wackiest way possible, to generate as much attention to his attempt to inform the world that he is “not famous anymore”. While promoting his new film Nymphomaniac, he delivered one odd line to the assembled journalists at a press conference and then walked out and left the room. Then, later in the day, he walked the red carpet of his movie premiere in Berlin with a paper bag over his entire head with the phrase “I Am Not Famous Anymore” written on it … thereby ensuring that the incident would get more coverage then if he just walked the red carpet without a paper bag over his head. Some people find his behavior “crazy” or “odd” but I, personally, find it calculated and contrived. More »
"We were just reminded what an extraordinary & inspiring man Nelson Mandela was"
Yesterday the world learned the sad news of Nelson Mandela‘s passing at the age of 95 after he was struck will illness 6 months earlier. As news spread of Mandela’s death, tributes and memorials to the man’s life and legacy began to flourish all around the globe.

Saints & Sinners, Gods & Idols
Lana Del Rey has finally unleashed upon the world her much talked about/ballyhooed/anticipated short film Tropico online after she premiered the film at an event in Los Angeles, CA last night. The film has a run time of just over 27 minutes and is … well, interesting. The scenes look like they were shot using Instagram filters and opens with cameo appearances by Jesus Christ, John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Lana in the guise of the Virgin Mary (which isn’t the only religious figure she portrays in this film) … then the really weird (artsy) stuff begins to unfold. If you have the time, it’s worth watching I think. I mean, Hello, we’ve been hearing about this damn Tropico thing for what seems like an eternity so now that it’s out, we might as well see what all the hoopla is about. Along with the premiere of this short film, Lana has announced that she is readying the release of her next album. Click below to find out more about her new music to come. More »
BOOM! You're Pregnant!
David Beckham and One Direction‘s Harry Styles both attended the London premiere of the film The Class of ’92 last night, which is exciting in and of itself, but the fact that the pair posed for photos together on the red carpet before the event makes the occasion all the more epic. Fans of a more mature age tend to love Becks while the younger fans tend to love Harry. Seeing the two of them together, it’s easy to see how fans both old and young can love them both in equal measure. Click below to see a few photos of Becks and Harry together and try not to fall desperately in love. More »
She Is SO Over These Photographers
Jennifer Lawrence has been hella busy promoting her new movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (which, BTW, I saw last night and yes… it is friggen EVERYTHING), as we recently saw in a fabulous red carpet round-up. In fact, all of the work may be getting to her because Wednesday night at the New York premiere she totally lost her shizz on the red carpet. Now to be fair, I think she’s partly kidding in this video, but you can also tell the photographers had gotten on her last nerve, LOL. Keep calm, J-Law! Peep the video for more!
Yesterday we took a moment to check out some of Jennifer Lawrence‘s recent red carpet looks, as she’s been promoting her new film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire across the globe. J-Law had many looks that I loved but I have to admit, as I was collecting the photos I was continuously distracted by Elizabeth Banks. I mean, this woman has been stunning on the red carpet! It’s hard to pick a favorite look here, but this Elie Saab Couture gown is everything– looks like something straight outta the Capitol. I also adore her in that slinky little light green, Jason Wu number. She is doing, like, 72 things right and for that I thank her. Peep the gallery for more!

Earlier this week we got to see photos from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire world premiere in London. Y’all know I usually love Jennifer Lawrence‘s red carpet looks, but I wasn’t really feeling the way her new ‘do looked, or that Christian Dior gown. However, there have been many fabulous red carpet appearances since then and I’m loving so many of these looks. The Paris premiere– where she went all black Christian Dior Couture with the dark red lip??? Love it. Peep the gallery for more! Can you pick a favorite? I know, I know. It’s hard.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire won’t hit theaters here in the US until November 22 but the world premiere event for the film is taking place in London, England right now. Today’s London premiere kicks off the coming onslaught of premiere events all over the world, leading up to the film’s debut in theaters for we regular folk. Click thru the gallery presented here to see photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Berkley, Jena Malone, Sam Clafin and Willow Shields on the red carpet of the London premiere and see what you think of their outfits. Some folks are not feeling J. Law‘s dress (and I can see why). Elizabeth Banks is working’ that yellow dress like nobodies’ business but I think Jena Malone is the one who stole the show. Which of the guys do you think looks the hottest? Do tell. Please enjoy.
