Whip Out Your 3D Spectacles

Plus, Check Out the Kerouac Drawn Bookcover for 'On the Road'
Back in March we got to check out the first movie trailer for the forthcoming big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac‘s classic novel On the Road. Today we get to check out a newer, international trailer for the film. As you can see, this new trailer features a lot more footage from the film … footage that, thankfully, eases my concerns about this film. On the Road is such an important book that careful attention must be paid to ensure that a film version does the book justice. I am liking what I’m seeing in this trailer. I hope the movie doesn’t disappoint.
In other On the Road news, a hand-drawn sketch that Kerouac himself drew as the potential book cover for Road has come to light … and you simply must give it a look. Check it out below. More »

"Life is too short not to be with the person you want to be with.”

Click below to see Miley‘s Marie Claire coverphoto, read some excerpts from her interview, see some photos and watch behind the scenes video from her shoot. Whew! That’s a lot of stuff! More »
"Keeping America on Target"
Last month we got to see the first video teaser for the forthcoming second season of Homeland on Showtime and today we get to check out a new trailer for the show. As you can see, season 2 of the show will focus on Nicholas Brody‘s run for political office (played by Damian Lewis) … despite the fact that he is secretly a turned terrorist intent on carrying out an attack on US soil. The only person who knows Brody‘s secret is CIA counterterrorist agent Carrie Mathison (played by Claire Danes) … but, as season 1 ended, she was getting possibly memory erasing shock treatments. Drama! I like this trailer a lot because not only does it give us a great understanding of the season to come but it also cleverly plays into the fact that we are in an election year. A second promo video has been released for Homeland season 2 … it’s kind of a trailer but not really. Check it out below. More »

The Greatest Olympian of All Time Has Swag For REALS!
Remember last week when US Swimmer Michael Phelps became the Most Decorated Olympic Athlete of All Time when he won his 19th medal? Yeah, well, since then he’s won a few more medals AND a special trophy … so that means he has more medals to take out on the town with him when he parties. That’s right, Phelpsie has no desire to leave his Olympic medals back in his hotel room when he goes out at night so he brings them with him. You wanna know how the Greatest Olympic Athlete of All Time likes to roll? Check out the photos below. More »

The TV Guide
Early yesterday morning, I boarded a train from Hartford, CT bound for NYC, NY all by my lonesome as I’m spending a few days here in the city. David had to fly back to LA to get back to his empire so I hit the rails for the Big Apple. I have planned for each of my days here something really fun … but I didn’t know what time I would be getting into NYC so I wasn’t sure which plans to make. Because I got here early and managed to get work done in time, I was able to see a matinee performance of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. This was the second time I saw the show and I have to tell you, I enjoyed it A LOT more this second time. More »
"Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love"
Back in September of last year we got our first look at Gossip Girl actor Penn Badgley in character as the late musician Jeff Buckley on the set of the forthcoming biopic film Greetings from Tim Buckley. Today we get to HEAR Badgley performing a Buckley song, giving us our first taste of what his performance in the biopic film will sound like. While I was concerned that Penn doesn’t really look much like Jeff Buckley I am happy to hear that he does sound like him when he sings. Click below to listen to Jeff Buckley‘s performance of Lilac Wine to compare. More »
Latest Car Wreck Upgrades Her Status to "Trainwreck"
Remember back in April when Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI after she allegedly sideswiped a parked police car after a long night of partying at a near by hotel bar (which, subsequently, banned her from returning the following night)? Remember how a month later she was reportedly involved in another hit and run accident? Yeah, well, it would appear that Ms. Bynes is up to her bad habits again. According to a new report, Amanda was ALLEGEDLY involved in another car accident in SoCal this weekend where she rear-ended another car. The passenger of the other car says that Amanda left the scene of the accident without giving up her information or without waiting for the police to arrive. She hit the car then ran … again. More »
