The Future Doesn't Look So Bright
Back in July of 2011, we got our first look at actor Matt Damon‘s shaved bald head on the set of his film Elysium. Today we get our first look at the just-released first trailer for the film. Elysium is directed by Neill Blomkamp, the man who made the film District 9, and as you can see in the embed above … his vision of the future is pretty bleak. In the film, the year is 2159 and the rich folks live aboard a man-made space craft called Elysium while the poor folk live back home on Earth. You wanna guess where the conflict comes in? Check out the trailer in the embed above and see what you think. Elysium hits theaters this August.

"I don't think it's a bad thing."
Last week we learned that Lindsay Lohan would be making an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman this week … and last night was the night. Lindsay sat opposite Letterman to promote her upcoming guest appearance on the Charlie Sheen series Anger Management as well as her cameo in Scary Movie 5 and, of course, to talk about her upcoming court-ordered 90 stint in rehab. Letterman grilled her a bit on her upcoming visit to rehab and Lindsay shot back blasé answers that really make her punishment seem like no big deal. I mean, it’s not a big surprise that Lindsay doesn’t seem to be taking her punishment seriously. According to Lindsay, she doesn’t see rehab as a “bad thing” but, instead, as “a blessing” … which is why she’s gone to rehab so many times and has lived such a blessed life, I think. Click below to watch video from Lindsay‘s appearance on The Late Show last night and hear for yourselves what she has to say about her upcoming fortuitous stint in rehab. More »
Back in February we got our first listen of Demi Lovato‘s new single Heart Attack, the first from her forthcoming new album Demi. Last week, we watched Demi perform the song live on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Today, at long last, we get to check out the official music video for the track. As you can see above, the video is pretty simple … pretty straight forward. Demi looks amazing as she belts out the lyrics with her man band behind her. I’ve grown to really love this song the more I hear it … I’m hoping the rest of the album will be great as well. Demi hits stores on May 14. Check out the video and see what you think.
Coming May 26th
Last month we got to see Michael Douglas on the cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine in character as Liberace as he will appear in the upcoming biopic TV movie Behind the Candelabra on HBO next month. Today we get to see the just-released new trailer for the film and … boy, is there a lot to see. Matt Damon stars alongside Douglas in this film and as you can see in the embed above, he plays young lover Scott Thorson to the very flamboyant Liberace. If you pay careful attention, you can see Damon rocking a very skimpy and very wet pair of bikini swimwear. If you cannot watch the video now, you might want to click below to see screencaps of said swimwear. More »

OK, y’all … I went and OFFICIALLY lost my mind. As you may recall, back in January I decided to run the 2013 Goofy Race and a Half Challenge at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL which was made up of the WDW Half Marathon on Saturday and the WDW Full Marathon on Sunday … back to back days — a total of 39.3 miles. Next year, WDW is taking things to the next level by introducing the inaugural Dopey Challenge … which is made up of a 5K race on Thursday, a 10K race on Friday, the half marathon on Saturday and the full marathon on Sunday … on BACK TO BACK DAYS for a total of 48.6 miles. Registration for the race opened up today and, well, I’m an idiot. More »

"Here's a little holiday greeting ..."
Those of you who have seen the trailers for Iron Man 3 (see the most recent one HERE) know that Tony Stark will go head to head with the villain known as The Mandarin in the upcoming sequel film (due out next month). Today we get to check out a short clip of footage from the film that features Stark (played by Robert Downey, Jr.) relaying a message to The Mandarin. Clearly, Tony is angry with his opponent and he is calling him out. I have a feeling I know what will come from Stark‘s challenge but … we won’t know for sure until we see the movie in full. Check out the embed above to see this clip and then mark your calendars, y’all. Iron Man 3 will hit theaters on May 3.

Y’all may or may not remember the name ‘Petite Meller‘ but back in September she kinda rocked my world with her awesome video for NYC Time. A French singer (who used to be a Philosophy student), Petite is really one-of-a-kind. She just released a new video for her song Stevie Jobs and it’s just as weird and cool and as fun as NYC Time, although the song has more of an up-tempo sound. Technology, hip-hop, and ladies in New Balance sneakers collide in the Steve Jobs-inspired visuals. Peep the video for more!
'Just Keep It On The Down Low'
A little while back we checked out a few photos from the set of the upcoming biopic on 90s R&B group TLC, Crazy, Sexy, Cool. Although I was skeptical about the project at first, now that the TV movie has wrapped, I’m kind of excited to see how things turned out. No word yet on when VH1 is airing the biopic, but today we have a pretty cool treat. We all remember TLC‘s 1994 hit single Creep, and the iconic video that dropped with it (and those awesome silk jammies… sigh). Well apparently there was another video for the song that never saw the light of day– until now! Check out the previously unreleased footage above, and click inside to re-live and re-lurve the video that made the final cut.
