Spider-Man <3 Batkid
Earlier today the New York Post published a story claiming that Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield bailed on appearing during the Academy Awards telecast with Miles Scott (aka that adorable Batkid who enjoyed an epic Make-A-Wish dream come true in San Francisco last year) due to his alleged diva behavior. Honestly, I had a hard time believing the story but these days, it’s not always easy to know what to believe. In response to the NYPost story, Andrew Garfield is denying that he bailed on Batkid and, instead, places the blame on the Oscar producers. According to Garfield, he and Batkid are BFFs … which is a story that I would much rather believe. More »

If you wanted more video, urine luck
Yesterday we saw video released by the Miami Beach Police Department that showed popstar Justin Bieber peeing into a cup slightly off camera while he was in police custody after he was arrested for drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest back in January. Today we get to see more video of JB taking his pee test while in custody but this time, we get a bit more up close and more personal with him. This new video features Bieber on camera peeing into a cup so that his urine can be tested for drugs and/or alcohol. To protect his modesty, tho, a big black censor square has been placed over his penis area. Again, I have no idea why the Miami Beach PD is releasing this video footage but clearly, it has something to do with the way the judicial system works in Florida. Enjoy the vid?

"Tomorrow, there'll be sun"
Back in December we saw photos and video from the NYC set of the upcoming remake film Annie, which stars Academy Award-nominated actress Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie and Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx as Daddy Stacks (aka Daddy Warbucks), and today we get to see the first trailer released for the film. As you may know, this version of Annie is a modern remake of the beloved Broadway musical and as you can see in the video embedded above, the heart and spirit of the original has been upgraded for a new generation. I love little Miss Quvenzhané so much that I couldn’t be more excited for this film. The trailer is pretty standard and very cute … but I must admit, I did get a wee bit choked up when Quevenzhané starts to sing the song Tomorrow midway thru the trailer. This looks really good, y’all. Check out the trailer, let me know what you think. Doesn’t this look like the Annie that we’ve all been waiting for?
Earlier today we got to see a batch of photos that were taken by the Miami Beach Police Department of Justin Bieber‘s numerous tattoos back when he was in police custody after he got arrested for drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest back in January. Before those photos were released, the Miami Beach PD released video of Bieber taking a sobriety test and video of him being frisked. Right now, we get to check out newly released video footage that was taken of Justin Bieber urinating into a cup so that it could be tested for evidence of drugs and/or alcohol because … well, I don’t know why we are watching this video … but the Miami Beach PD wants us to see it so … here we are. I honestly do not understand why the cops are releasing so much footage from JB‘s arrest. I don’t really understand how this helps their case against him but … I understand that even more footage will be released soon (of him actually peeing into the cup, like, up close and blurred). I dunno. I watched this video, it’s just weird. I mean, right? This is so weird, right?

Early last month we got to see the pretty epic first full-length trailer for the upcoming sequel/reboot film Transformers: Age of Extinction and as you may recall, THAT TRAILER FEATURES AUTOBOT LEADER OPTIMUS PRIME WIELDING A SWORD WHILE RIDING ATOP DINOBOT LEADER GRIMLOCK. Sorry, I’m having a hard time NOT TYPING IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE THE DINOBOTS REALLY GET ME AMPED UP. As much as I really DO NOT LIKE OR TRUST Michael Bay, I have to admit … this second trailer looks pretty damn sweet … er, that is, if you focus solely on the Transformers … especially THE DINOBOTS. OMG, I have to stop yelling, click the embed above to watch this new Transformers trailer and see what you think. Personally, I hate myself for being so excited about this movie but THERE’S REALLY NOTHING THAT I CAN DO AT THIS POINT. Ugh.
Back in January we got to see an amazing new trailer for Disney‘s live-action film Maleficent, which stars Angelina Jolie in the title role, and today we get to see Maleficent herself on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. We are just over 2 months away from the release of Maleficent in theaters so it’s just about time for the promo push for the film to get ramped into high gear. Click below to see Angelina as Maleficent on the new cover of EW mag and get a preview of the coverstory feature. More »
"I've been beating myself up all day"
During the worldwide telecast of the 2014 Academy Awards on Sunday night, John Travolta made an embarrassing faux pas when he inexplicably introduced singer Idina Menzel as Adele Dazim. Since then, the Internet has run wild with stuff like a Twitter account for @AdeleDazim and a Travoltified Name Generator (my Travoltified name is Theo Rodrayguns). Idina‘s name was even changed to Adele Dazim in the Playbill for her current Broadway musical If/Then! Today we learn that John has issued a public apology for his Oscar blunder, an apology that you can read in full below. More »
Back in January, popstar Justin Bieber got arrested in Miami Beach, FL on charges of drag racing, DUI and resisting arrest. A few weeks after his arrest, the Miami Beach Police Department released jailhouse video of Bieber being searched while in police custody. Last week, they released more jailhouse video footage of Bieber in custody, this time as he was given a walk the line sobriety test. Today we learn that the Miami Beach PD has released a batch of intimate photos that were taken of Bieber‘s tattoos. As I understand it, police photograph the tattoos of people they arrest in an attempt to record possible gang-related tattoos. In Bieber‘s case, all they got were photos that include a Bible verse, a tattoo of Justin‘s mother’s eye, an unfortunate tiger, a court jester, etc. Click thru the gallery presented here to get an up close and personal look at Justin Bieber‘s collection of tattoos, courtesy of the fine folks in the Miami Beach Police Department.
