“The guy from that boyband One Direction’s name is Zayn Malik. If you look him up on google you can find a bunch of images of him. I was picturing Robbie as a beefier version of him. Physically strong, with a quiet, troubled expression, […] kind of boyish. Just my initial idea. Opinions and suggestions greatly welcome, as always. I’ll send you the arc breakdowns in my next e-mail.”

It’s hard to improve on a classic. But comic creators Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore aimed to do just that when they went about redesigning the Spirit of Vengeance for the upcoming All-New Ghost Rider comic series from Marvel. Where previous versions portrayed Ghost Rider as the rider of a flame-wheeled bike (or before that, a horse), the titular star of All-New Ghost Rider debuting in March, Robbie Reyes, calls a muscle car his chief ride. And with that comes a revised look for old flame-head, turning the long-time biker into a gearhead…. literally.
Whatever happened to Kimberly Jones? The once indisputable rap vixen, now self-made Latoya Jackson twin, use to be hailed as the "Queen of Hip-Hop" achieving both commercial and critical success. But ever since Biggie died and her addiction to plastic surgery spiraled out of control she's just never been the same. In memoriam of what use to be, lets take a look back at some of the songs that made Kim so special.
Queen Bitch is probably Kim's best song lyrically most likely do the fact that it was ghost written by Biggie
Diddy's "It's All About the Benjamins" remix featured Lil Kim outshining the rest of the Bad Boy crew.
Big Momma Thing starts off Kim's multi-platinum debut with overtly sexual lyrics that were missing from earlier female MCs.
A Lil Kim classic! How could you not love this song in which Kimmy boasts about counting a milli while having cunnilingus performed on her?
On this scathing Nicki Minaj diss we see the return of the fierce, hot blooded lyircs that have been missing from Kim's music the last decade or so.
Lil Kim & Biggie team up again for this laid back song.
Kimmy raps about not taking any shit from men. She'll use and abuse your ass.
"Crush on You" is probably considered Kim's signature song despite the fact that she doesn't even appear on the album version.

Before everyone gets all flustered, let's preface the gallery with this: When you make a film adaptation of anything it's going to have to leave out some major plot points and events. These movies are still good movies that just so happen to have been based on a game that everyone loves.
One of the better movies based on a game, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, took the intelligent path of making their film an animated one. The level of skill that it took to make this film is unparalleled. It may have came out in 2001 but the graphics are still pretty damned great.
This Silent Hill adaptation came out in 2006. The cast was amazing and it actually met with some critical praise. The film captured some of the terror that the game mastered, which still makes a pretty damned scary movie.
Timothy Olyphant, of Justified and Go fame, played Agent 47 in the Hitman adaptation. It's hard to make a film based on such a cumbersome game series, but they did it by not trying to tackle the whole canon at once. The same thing that Marvel did with their universe: Bite sized pieces.
By the time they made the film version of Resident Evil, the series was already old and had a large following. There was no way that you could make them all happy, but I think that they made most at least a little happier. Once again, instead of biting off more than they could chew they worked on the beginning. They made it episodic, in a way, and that made the story much easier to swallow.
With the Mortal Kombat movie, the campier the better. They really captured the spirit of the original game. Mortal Kombat wasn't created as an ultra realistic game but a fighting game with as much gore and violence as possible. This film is quite possibly the closest to its videogame predecessor.

To some extent this is a late night nostalgia post I guess
With a little help from Weight Watchers, mother-of-two Jessica Simpson has reached her goal weight.
“It’s so much better to have some back up and to do it together because we all face similar challenge,” Jess said of the weight loss program in a new advertisement. “The meetings keep me focused and motivated, and I have a newfound determination that I’m really proud of.”
Jessica shared a still frame from the video on Instagram. She said, “First time rocking a white dress this year… but not the last!!”
She posted a selfie a while later, adding, “…AND a white T-shirt!!#goalreached thx @weightwatchers”
Have you reached your goal weight?
We just recently saw a cool featurette showing Benedict Cumberbatch doing motion-capture work to play the titular dragon in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Now another look behind the scenes has popped up looking at the somewhat silly, but impressive dwarf barrel escape sequence from the sequel that feels almost straight out of a Steven Spielberg film. Peter Jackson pops up on set as this featurette shows a combination of the footage shot and the visual effects that came together to make this fun sequence work on the big screen. It's a short featurette, but it shows just how much went into this small part of the film.
Here's the featurette on the barrel sequence The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug from Wired:
the video won't embed :(

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit... J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, is set in Middle-Earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits Blu-Ray & DVD early this spring on April 8th.

"The stress of everything is catching up to me..." Ohhh boy this looks really, really eerie. A teaser trailer has debuted online for Midnight SXSW film Honeymoon, from first-time filmmaker Leigh Janiak.
The film stars Harry Treadaway and Rose Leslie as newlyweds Paul and Bea, who travel to a remote lake country for their honeymoon. It doesn't take long for the whole atmosphere to get a bit creepy, almost as if Lars von Trier suddenly took over. Janiak was impressed by Treadaway's performances in Fish Tank and Control, she tells Hitfix. The film will play at SXSW 2014 and Tribeca and likely other genre fests. Be prepared for chills.
Synopsis from SXSW: Young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods. Honeymoon is directed by first-time filmmaker Leigh Janiak, from a script by Janiak and Phil Graziadei, inspired by playing with "how well you can really know another person."
Leigh Janiak's Honeymoon will premiere on Friday, March 10th at SXSW 2014 in Austin, TX coming up this month. The film is still seeking distribution, so keep watch for reviews & news.
Deadline reports that Entertainment One, the production company behind AMC's "Hell on Wheels," is teaming up with Gary Oldman and Douglas Urbanski’s Flying Studio to develop and produce a serialized horror series titled "The Diabolic."
The series will focus on a "a broken but brilliant exorcist" who falls in love with a woman whose son is possessed by an ancient entity with diabolic intentions."
Oldman and Urbanski will produce the series along with Josh Weinstock. eOne will handle the worldwide distribution for the series.
"The Diabolic" is not the only exorcism-themed series headed for the small screen as "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman is developing a series around the concept as well, and there's even a series in development based on William Friedkin's classic film The Exorcist. Is 2014 the year of the excorcism TV series?
So many horror series coming to tv yay!
The untitled “Man of Steel” sequel hasn’t yet gone into production, and it’s already the most controversial movie in fandom.
Chalk that up to director Zack Snyder’s somewhat unconventional casting choices. First, comics stalwarts expressed surprise and skepticism in August with the revelation that Ben Affleck would inherit the cape and cowl from actor Christian Bale, taking on the role of Batman opposite Henry Cavill’s Superman in Snyder’s much-anticipated superhero sequel, the follow-up to his 2013 blockbuster that grossed more than $668 million at the worldwide box office.
Then came the announcement that Israeli actress Gal Gadot, best known for her work in the “Fast & Furious” films, would play Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in the movie, and the uproar started anew. Just last month, fresh fandemonium was heaped upon the movie with the announcement that boyish “Social Network” star Jesse Eisenberg, 30, had claimed the part of Superman’s traditionally burly, bald and middle-aged arch nemesis Lex Luthor.
A month before physical production on the Superman-Batman movie is set to begin -- and just days before the Friday opening of the Snyder-produced “300: Rise of an Empire,” director Noam Murro’s follow-up to Snyder’s revolutionary 2007 action film “300” -- Hero Complex caught up with the filmmaker who revealed exclusive details about his latest directorial project.
Snyder spoke candidly about keeping tabs on fanboy “talk-back” and how outcry is “reassuring and frustrating at the same time.”
Hero Complex: Have you started filming ‘Superman-Batman’?
Zack Snyder: We’re getting ready to start shooting in a month or so. It’s going great. I’m very excited. It’s very fun to get into this world with different heroes coexisting in the same universe, but a lot of balls in the air as they say. As a fan, it’s an amazing opportunity. You know, Superman and Batman in the movies have never existed in the same frame together. So it’s an interesting historical thing. We were just testing the suits, right? The new Batsuit and the Superman suit. It wasn’t even with the actors, right? It was just to see ‘em. I was standing there, they were standing next to each other. And I was like, “Guys, someone take a picture! This has never happened before.” We slightly dork out. Like, “Are you kidding me?!”
HC: How surprised are you by all the outcry over some of your casting choices? From Gal Gadot to Ben playing Batman? Jesse as Lex Luthor?
ZS: There are two ways to think about it. We know the material. Unfortunately, the fans don’t know the material. So, we’re casting according to what’s happening in the script. And we’re hoping that leads to enough originality, enough perspective on what we’re doing that you get something fresh and exciting. I understand the canon. I’m not crazy. I know what these characters need from a mythological standpoint. I think Jesse is going to be an amazing Lex. Let’s not forget he was nominated for an Academy Award. It’s not like I just grabbed my friend to play the guy! This guy’s the real deal. By the way, in looking at all the talk-back, you can get all different perspectives in there too. Some people are hating to hate. Some people -- someone did some fan art. And you look underneath and someone wrote, “I guess I can see it.” Honestly, are you kidding me? Just stop it! It’s
reassuring and frustrating at the same time.
HC: It seems like you’re not insulating yourself from fan dialogue about the project. You’re out there listening to what people have to say. But ultimately, you are trying to serve the material. So what you’re saying is, fans should take heart in that.
ZS: Not just that. [The movie] literally takes the “Man of Steel” and “Batman” universes and explodes them. You’re not as tied to the mythology. In “Man of Steel,” we had to create an origin story, a mythology, and there’s a lot of energy into that, which we love doing. Don’t get me wrong. But when you think about how fun it is too — now that you’ve got these characters -- to now let ‘em loose. That’s fun!
'The Grand Budapest Hotel' actor Jeff Goldblum and a friend spotted out for lunch in Brentwood, California on March 8, 2014.
With sales and a mainstream appeal that’s made her the envy of many a R&B diva, Tamar Braxton undoubtedly finds herself in the ‘good books’ of any familiar with her genre, and its staple acts.
However, by way of a comment published on her official Twitter account, she may have scored a new found enemy in Britney Spears’ fan base this week, after she weighed in on a message published by the ‘Chart News’ twitter account on the icon’s latest album ‘Britney Jean.’
Upon giving an update on the sales of Spears’ latest album, ‘Chart News‘ received a response from Braxton’s longtime friend/collaborator Tiyon Mack, questioning the authenticity of the figure provided.
Minutes later, the Grammy-nominated Braxton responded to her pal’s tweet, ruffling the feathers of Britney’s fans when she suggested that 241,000 may have been the album’s chart position…and not its current sales figure.
In response, one Spears’ supporter shared:
This week’s issue of PEOPLE goes inside Matthew McConaughey’s super-fun journey -- and what’s next. He embraced marriage and fatherhood, but he still loves those bongos.
Fresh off his magic moment and Best Actor Oscar win, the free-spirited Texan savors his success–and just keeps livin’.“I’m having a ball right now,” the 44-year-old star tells PEOPLE. “I try to give a lot to my life and the people in it,” he adds, “and I know they sure give back. I have a lot to be thankful for.” His career reinvention has earned its own name: McConaissance. “Usually if your career turns great, you’re getting into the debit section on the family or fatherhood,” he says. “But everything is at a good level.”
Bless this orange soon to be EGOT KING of Hollywood!!!!
[removed the rest of the People article, I assume that's what you meant mods?]
Here are the rest of her choice responses to a variety of queries.
What’s happening at this exact moment?
I’m day drinking. I’m drinking a room temperature, 12-ounce can of PBR that I found underneath my coffee table this morning. I can’t let it go to waste. And I already did all my driving today. I’m calling from Pittsburgh, Transylvania – my home sweet home. I’m rarely here. I pretty much stay busy on the road. But whenever I can, I love to come home. Even if I have vacation time, I always just take a vacation at home. I don’t like anywhere else.
What’s the most powerful aspect of becoming Sharon Needles?
It’s hard to remember. This went from a hobby, a passion, an addiction, to a conglomerate, a major business. She went from a drunk clown to a businesswoman. When you get the rare opportunity and the pleasure I got to work on “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” that’s a pretty high standard to try to trump or try to achieve something greater than. But that’s what motivates me. The goal since I was a kid was to be commercially famous, and that’s kind of happened. It’s no easy task to keep that up.
You really have to love what you do to put yourself through that process.
Let’s face it. If “RuPaul’s Drag Race” didn’t put you on TV, you are not making enough money to justify what you’re doing to yourself. It’s completely justified by passion and just being an overall egomaniac/attention whore. That’s what drag comes from. It come from people that don’t feel so necessarily empowered in their day-to-day lives that have this superhero – or in my case supervillain — living in their closet that can transform them into something that fills a lot of voids in their life. What a great thing, because it also fills a void in other people’s lives who love to come out and be entertained by this very bizarre and underappreciated artform.
We’re now in season 6 of “Drag Race.” What’s the key to maintaining a sense of celebrity or notoriety?
When RuPaul says, “You better work,” she really means it. She really means, “You better go out and (expletive) work,” because the world is not just gonna sit by and worship you through your Facebook page, relishing over a season of yesteryear. You have to keep delivering. That’s why I did my 12-track album “PG-13.” Always keeping yourself involved with sponsorships, theater, commercial work, musical work, touring. You just don’t stop.
“PG-13″ is not he standard post “Drag Race” club single. It’s really a cohesive piece of work.
The way my fans perceived me on “Drag Race” made me feel, personally, like they were involved with something that wasn’t a drag queen but something that was – not to toot my own horn – like a pop icon. I thought if I have this temporary, one-two year pop icon status, I’m gonna write the record I always wanted to hear. There are enough songs that talk about “Work,” “Fierce,” “Bye, Felicia” and “Mother has arrived.” We don’t need them from me, and I don’t know how to talk about that stuff. Sharon is a Rolodex of pop culture and nostalgia, so that’s what I wanted to write about. I wanted kids to put the Lady Gaga down for one (expletive) second and maybe take an album that could actually be picked apart with things to learn about, that young kids probably don’t know about.
The last time we talked, you’d never been to Texas and admitted to a bit of “Texaphobia.” Has that changed since you’ve spent time here?
Every city in Texas has its own flavor. Austin has that very underground, art-scene. San Antonio kinda has all the leftovers of people that don’t live in any other city. The thing I like about Houston – I don’t know if this is a mean or nice thing to say, depending on who you are – I don’t really feel like I’m in Texas. I’m not bombarded by cowboy hats or tons of Republican stickers.
You might be this weekend. RodeoHouston is in full swing.
I wanna go to a rodeo. One of my dreams is to be a rodeo clown.
- Director James Gunn really didn't want Chris Pratt ("the chubby guy from Parks and Rec? no way.") and refused to see him audition several times.
- They chose Bradley Cooper to voice Rocket because he brought heart and soul to the character rme he should have a cockney accent like in the comics bye
- Rocket isn't just 'Bugs Bunny tossed in the middle of The Avengers'
- Cosmo, a talking dog with a Russian accent who helps the Guardians from their HQ is heavily implied to be in the movie YASSSSS
- Sequels might happen, with more Guardians being added, but for now they're considering this a stand-alone film.
- Starhawk from the 1969 team might be added if there were sequels, Bug from the reboot team was cut from the lineup.
- 99% of this movie will take place in space, mid-credits scene on earth?
Celebrating the new Chris Pratt tag!
THE Real Housewives of Melbourne star Janet Roach has lifted the lid on tensions behind the scenes.
Roach, a property developer, described relations between some of the cast as “war”, with the show exposing some frosty interaction.
“It’s pussycatsville compared to what’s going on at the moment,’’ Roach said.
“It’s like daggers at 10 paces. There’s a war going on and it’s really getting nasty.”
Roach said she hoped the situation might resolve itself as longstanding friendships had suffered.
But it seems the dislike is genuine and it predominantly centres on Gina Liano, Andrea Moss and Lydia Schiavello.
The catalyst was a disagreement between Liano and psychic Jackie Gillies.
“It’s on and it’s real,” said Roach.
“I don’t think Jackie caused a division. She probably caused a rift at first but out of all the girls she’s real. She and I are best friends and she has no agenda.
“Chyka (Keebaugh) and I have tried not to get involved.”
Roach said she would definitely do another series if it were offered.
In future episodes she shows off the younger man she is still romantically involved with.
“We’re both a bit commitment-shy but as time has gone on we’ve become quite close,” she said.
“We do a lot of things that I never did with my 70-year-old husband. He puts a lot of effort in and he’s fun.
“I really can’t get my feet back on the ground. It’s very exciting and at my age not many people would be asked to do a TV show.”
This show is pure gold.
When Laura Dern was shooting the upcoming tearjerker Fault in Our Stars opposite Woodley, the pair quickly bonded over their shared experience as former child actors with fierce hands-on mothers. Dern recalls one of their many dinners near the Pittsburgh shoot and delivers a spot-on Woodley impression.
"Shailene's like, 'Hey, wow!' Big open smile," says Dern. "'God, great, I looked at your menu. It's so awesome. Hey, what kind of oil do you guys cook in? Oh, you do? Hmm, you never use beef fat from sustainable farms where it's grass-fed? Oh wow, you guys are open to that? Cool. Can we have a tour of your kitchen?'"
The next thing Dern remembers is touring a meat locker in the restaurant's basement, discussing how to cut the cattle in the most honorable way and how to use every part of the animal. "People might think they're saving the planet, taking half steps," says Dern. "Shailene is taking it to such a different level."
Dern says the two actresses have become so close that she considers Woodley a member of her family. "There are times when I have called my house when out of town and found out that Shailene's over here making dinner with my children," she says.
