Watch: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Releases A 13-Minute Featurette

Ok, somebody really wants us to see this movie! As if yesterday’s new stills and review of Anne Hathaway‘s performance as Catwoman weren’t enough, we’ve got some new ish. In the featurette, all of your favorite people (and mine) take us behind-the-scenes of this summer’s most-anticipated film. Chris Nolan, Anne Hathaway, Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Morgan Freeman, and the rest of the gang (including my beloved Marion Cotillard) walk us through their experiences on The Dark Knight Rises. Twelve days and counting… :)

Long-Term Breastfeeding Moms Get A Reality Show

Most of us still remember that now-infamous TIME magazine cover. You know which one. And if those women wanted visibility, they may very well be getting it (if not for themselves then for other moms with similar beliefs) via a new reality show from the wonderful people who brought you Dance Moms and American Stuffers (a show about pet… preservation). While the term “attachment parent” has not been used in conjunction with the women whose stories you’ll see on this show, all of the women are considered to be long-term breastfeeding mothers. None of the women from the TIME article are currently linked to the show, but we can assume that their stories have a lot to do with this. And I’m not sure if the concept is really cool, or really, ridiculously, unnecessary. Check out the deets with me inside.

Watch: Santigold’s New Video For ‘The Keepers’ Is Scary Good

Santigold’s new video for The Keepers has all the good stuff in it: scary, robotic Stepford-looking Wives, gangsters, and good music. The Australian director Nabil (who is fast-becoming a fave of mine) might be the one to blame if this video may give you nightmares. But if you’re interested in videos that straddle the border of artsy and creepy, this just might be your cup ‘a tea.

Watch: Diane Kruger Shines As Marie Antoinette In ‘Farewell My Queen’ Movie Clips

Now I love me some Kirsten Dunst but 2006′s Marie Antoinette simply did not do it for me. Which is why I was excited to hear about a new (and very different) Marie Antoinette movie via The Boston French Film Festival. Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds, Joshua Jackson‘s woman!) plays the Queen B in this tale of royalty, love, and– believe it or not– homoerotic affairs dans Versailles. Watch exclusive clips and the trailer inside!

She claimed that the woman in front of her was reclining her seat, and practically knocked her out in doing so. Um. Huuuh? Please help me decipher these tweets (and the odd, odd life of a celebrity) inside.

An Early Review Of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Praises Anne Hathaway As Catwoman

Critics have been given early access to screenings of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises and bit by bit, reviews of the film are hitting the Internets. As far as I can tell, from the information that has come out thus far, Christopher Nolan has outdone himself with this final installment of the Batman saga. Many people, me included, found it hard to imagine how he would be able to make a better Batman film than The Dark Knight but if the early reviews are to believed — he has done it. Of particular interest to me are the early reports of Anne Hathaway‘s performance in the film as Selina Kyle/Catwoman. I am beyond relived to hear that the early reviews claim that she gives an amazing performance as Catwoman. More »

Listen: Frank Ocean Releases A New Pharrell-Produced Track Titled ‘Sweet Life’

Seeing as how I just wrote an entire PITNB popCulture post on him, I have run out of good, eloquent things to say about Frank Ocean. I am reduced to: he’s… just… awesomeness. Anyway, he just released a new track on his tumblr called Sweet Life. Although the two songs are very different, the vibe is reminiscent of the Nas/Amy Winehouse track we just heard– mellow, jazzy and summer-perfect.
