In December we got our first look at the first promo pics to be released from the upcoming sequel film Sex and the City 2. Today, we get to check out a new batch of promo photos from the film which give us a bit more understanding of what’s going to take place in the world of SaTC when Part Deux opens in theaters at the end of May. BE WARNED — the article below provides some POSSIBLE movie SPOILERS:
With only 11 weeks to go before the eagerly-awaited Sex And The City 2 movie, fans have been given a sneak peek of what to expect, The upcoming sequel is set two years after we last saw Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and her friends and brings the girls out of their beloved New York on a trip of Morocco. Little has been given away about the plotline, but the film will definitely include a wedding and perhaps a baby for an unlikely mother. Apparently happily married to husband Mr Big (Chris Noth), it is not known why Carrie decides to abandon him for a girlie trip to Marrakech with Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbs (Cynthia Nixon). For their exotic trip to North Africa, the foursome are seen enjoying walking through the dunes of the Sahara Desert, lunching under the shade of a Bedouin tent and partying alongside belly dancers in a local nightclub. In these new photos from the film, Charlotte appears to be revelling in being a housewife as she carries two-year-old daughter Rose – who was born in the climax of the first film – while baking cupcakes. Despite turning 50 in the last film, it appears age hasn’t diminished Samantha’s love of tight-fitting clothes as she is seen dashing across a busy Manhattan street in a revealing little black dress. The only single member of the group, Samantha will come into contact with ex live-in lover Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis) again in the sequel, prompting speculation they may give their romance another try. She also finds a new love interest in the shape of English actor Max Ryan, who plays a suave character called Rikard … Among the stars making cameo appearances in this year’s movie include [Miley Cyrus], Penelope Cruz, Liza Minnelli and British-Iranian comedian Omid Djalili, who plays a Moroccan hotel owner.
WEE!! I am also excited for this new film as well (in addition to The Runaways, Clash of the Titans and Iron Man 2) … this Spring looks like it’s gonna be a GREAT time at the movies. After the jump, check out a few more new promo pics from Sex and the City 2 … More »

Lawd … Lawdy, have mercy. Behold … a few photos of Jake Gyllenhaal chillin’ with his pet pooch Atticus on the set of his new film which is currently filming in Montreal, Quebec. As you can see … Jake is giving us a nice view of his very ample assets:

The Twins! The Brangelina Twins have come out of hiding to say HEY! Here are a couple of really cute pics of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie taking their twin babies (and only the twins) Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Léon out for a bite of lunch in Venice, Italy earlier today:
As they’ve been doing for the past few weeks, Brangelina once again ventured out in public with a smaller contingent of children making sure not to bring them all out at the same time. Earlier this week, we saw the couple with the rest of their kiddies while these twins were nowhere to be seen. Today, we have an opposite scenario … the twins and none of the other kids. As much as I love seeing the other Jolie-Pitt kids out in public, we don’t get to see nearly as much of the twins … so these pics are a welcome site. Aren’t Viv and Knox the cutest little things? Those chubby cheeks are killing me. Sooo cute!!!

Last night the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome hosted the Hollywood premiere of the much-anticipated biopic The Runaways which features Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning as the leading ladies of the 70′s rock group of the same name. Joining Stewart and Fanning at last night’s premiere was Joan Jett, Cherie Curie and a host of other folks who either appear in the film or just wanted to lend some support at the premiere. Here are a few photos from the red carpet arrivals and some deets about last night’s event:
She’s famous for her role in the fantasy Twilight films. But for her latest movie Kristen Stewart, 19, has taken a reality check and plays iconic rock star Joan Jett of the Seventies band The Runaways. The pair posed together on the red carpet of the film’s Hollywood premiere, but Joan, 51, threatened to almost upstage the young ingenue as she showed off an amazing youthful look. The pair posed together on the red carpet alongside Dakota Fanning, 16, who wore a strapless silver sequinned dress, and her real-life counterpart Cherie Currie, the group’s former lead singer. And Kristen looked rather more cheerful than usual in a coral pink dress as she arrived at the Cinerama Dome Arclight Theatre. Her Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner also came along to the event … Jett, 51, who founded The Runaways along with drummer Sandy West, has been a huge help to Kristen throughout the filming of the biopic. While on US TV’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this week, Kristen said of the role: ‘I was really lucky to have her [Jett] be so into the project and so open about it, because not a lot of people my age know about The Runaways. It was the most important part of her life and kick-started her career. And also, they were the first girl band. They were the first girls to ever play aggressive, sexual assertive rock and roll.’ The Runaways were an American all-girl teenage rock band, on the music scene between 1975 to 1979. The band is best known for the songs Cherry Bomb, Queens of Noise, Rock n Roll, Neon Angels (On the Road to Ruin) and Born to Be Bad.
The film doesn’t open in theaters until next Friday (the 19th) but we are deffo in the homestretch. It’s a bit unusual for a movie premiere to be held this early before the film opens but, in all liklihood, there will be other premieres in other cities next week leading up to the film’s opening. As the article says, Taylor Lautner was in the hiz at last night’s premiere — after the jump, find out who else attended last night’s event … More »
The late James Brown — the Godfather of Soul who passed away in December of 2006 — is apparently missing, y’all! According to his daughter LaRhonda Pettit, Brown‘s body has not been entombed in his crypt as he should because, she believes, there are people trying to keep his cause of death a secret. Now, I’m not sure how Pettit knows that her father’s body is missing from his crypt but she seems pretty sure that his body has been stolen away … read on:
James Brown’s daughter has claimed the singer’s body has gone missing from its crypt. LaRhonda Pettit, 48, alleges the body of Brown, who died in December 2006 aged 73, is being hidden to prevent a full autopsy being carried out. Ms Pettit said the official cause of death, which was said to be a heart attack brought by pneumonia, is not the real reason behind the Godfather of Soul’s passing. She said: ‘My daddy’s body has disappeared. I have no clue where it was taken, but I need to know where. I’m convinced his death was suspicious and I want the people responsible brought to justice. The only way to do that is to exhume his body and have an autopsy. I cannot understand why one was never conducted.’ Ms Pettit, who underwent a DNA test in 2007 to prove she was Brown’s daughter, believes there were several people involved in Brown’s death. She added to America’s Globe newspaper: ‘It was common knowledge that my daddy took illegal drugs. He was also hooked on various prescription painkillers. At the very least there were enablers who helped cause his death.’ Ms Pettit, who is 99.99 per cent likely to be Brown’s daughter, said the singer had a relationship with her mother after meeting her at one of his performances in the 1960s. She is one of 12 people who came forward following Brown’s death claiming to be one of his illegitimate children. Brown’s body is said to have been sealed in a temporary crypt at his daughter Deanna’s South Carolina Home while arrangements are made for his permanent burial.
I would surely hope that Ms. Pettit is mistaken in her claims but in a world where a thing like this is entirely possible, you can’t help but wonder what if? Take for example, the fact that the body of Eva Paron (Evita, herself) went missing for many years after her death. In her case, the body wasn’t being hidden to prevent autopsy … she just kinda got lost as her embalmed body toured the world so mourners could see her one last time. While it’s highly unlikely that James Brown‘s body is missing, I suppose we cannot be sure unless his body is exhumed to make sure it is where it should be. It would be very sad and extremely disrespectful if Pettit is merely making these claims for publicity … but, then again, we also live in a world where people would do anything for a little fame and notoriety. What do y’all think … do YOU think James Brown is somewhere out there?

A funny candid photo has surfaced from a pre-Oscars event last week that seems to show an interesting run-in between two celebs. One, a venerated and hugely talented Hollywood Icon of the highest stature … and Victoria Beckham. It’s unclear what may have caused the … incident … but this photo seems to show that Shirley MacLaine isn’t all that impressed by the likes of Vicki B. … so she decided to give her the stink eye:
If looks could kill, as they saying goes, then it’s fair to say oblivious Victoria Beckham wouldn’t have fared well in this exchange. Doyenne of the silver screen Shirley MacLaine looks down her nose as Posh waltzes out of a pre-Oscars party to her car. The celebrity showdown was captured last week outside Coldwater Canyon Park in Beverly Hills – although it’s not known what events led up to it. One thing is for sure, MacLaine – the Hollywood veteran – doesn’t look like she would have offered Mrs Beckham a Term Of Endearment. La Becks was heading with son Brooklyn for the car, but doesn’t appear to have stopped for a polite chat with Warren Beatty’s elder sister. Perhaps she didn’t recognise the 75-year-old who had made 28 films before she was even born. Well, she is new in town. The singer turned WAG turned successful fashion designer could possibly to do with brushing-up on who’s who in Hollywood.
Hahahahaha … you know, it’s totally possible that Shirley wasn’t even really giving VB any sort of sideways glance at all and the photo was just snapped at an inopportune time. It’s also entirely possible that MacLaine had no idea whatsoever who the frightfully skinny lady in the ratty fur-like coat was and had no intention of even deigning to look at her at all. Whatever the case may be, I suspect this speculation is much ado about nothing … but it’s still humorous nonetheless ;)

While the main castmembers of MTV‘s Jersey Shore are flying around the country living high on the hog at various parties thrown in their honor, estranged castmate Angelina Jolie Pivarnick is confessing to Life & Style magazine that appearing on Jersey Shore has ruined her life. Since she was asked to leave the show in season 1 (after only the third ep), she claims that the other JS castmembers have been hating on her big time. Oh No!
From insulting text messages to threats of violence, Angelina Pivarnick tells Life & Style her Jersey Shore co-stars have made her miserable since she left the show after three episodes. “I got a text from Mike saying, ‘Be prepared to get your ass beat, you pale rat bitch. Nobody likes you in the house,’” she reveals. “Jenni has been telling people she wants to beat me up, and Snooki says she’s going to beat me up too. I don’t understand why they hate me.” Co-star DJ Pauly D snubbed Angelina another way after hooking up with her while in LA for the reunion show. “The next night we went to a club, and he wound up hooking up with someone else right in front of my face!” she says. It’s even more hurtful because she left the show for her boyfriend, who broke up with her three months later. Still, the Staten Island native says she’d return for season two, which will take place in Miami. “Without a doubt, 100 percent,” she says. “Now I’m single — and I want to party again!”
Angelina is a hot mess. From her trash bag luggage to her annoying big mouth, it’s no wonder the other castmates can’t stand her. I can understand how they might all be a bit resentful that she wants to get back in on their good time after she shat all over it the first time to the point where she was asked to leave the show. But, it makes total sense that MTV would want to bring her back for the express purpose of stirring up trouble. Meh. I’m over it. She sucked before, she’ll suck again if brought back … I say, cut her loose … let her disappear into obscurity for good and bring on board another self-proclaimed guidette to take her place. If Angelina really believes that Jersey Shore “ruined her life” then she should look to sunnier pastures. Considering the leechy person she seems to be, I’m not surprised she’d be willing to come crawling back for a chance to taste fame again. I guess we’ll have to see if Angelina will really come back for Jersey Shore season 2 or if she is merely desperately grasping at straws at one last ditch effort at being famous.
Any Angelina fans out there? Wanna speak up for your girl?
