Saldana -An entity from a far corner
of the Marvel universe has found itself positioned as the unlikely hero of the
flailing summer box office; even the people behind Honest Trailers seemed to
think Guardians might be Marvel's Green Lantern. Thinking of Guardians as a
champion in this way seems like a classic case of Internet goodwill, but we see
the movie more as Marvel's potential cult classic. Troma veteran James Gunn is
the director after all, and we love the his unexpected path through Hollywood
has brought him to this point. Let's remember that Guardians is a standalone
Marvel movie with no ties to its previous films or more recognizable characters.
That's a tough sell to a wide audience. In fact, our colleague Ray Subers at Box
Office Mojo has already wondered if Guardians is this year's Pacific Rim - an
instance of online hype outweighing general interest.
on Up (2014) - Stars:Chadwick Boseman, Nelsan Ellis, Dan Aykroyd, Viola Davis -
Sometimes we feel burnt out on artist biopics, then we watch a trailer like this
one and we're a screaming fan again. Though it might be hard to get an honest,
warts-and-all drama made about the entirety of James Brown's life, it seems
Taylor Tate is set to make a clearer stamp as a director with live-performance
scenes and stronger flourishes than anything we saw in The Help, and it's good
to see star Chadwick Boseman break out of sport-drama mode after back-to-back
appearances in 42 and Draft Day

Orlando Bloom Lays Hands on Justin Bieber - Orlando
Bloom is probably the last person we’d think of if someone even mentioned a
bar fight, but apparently he had one. According to TMZ, the former Mr. Miranda
Kerr punched Justin Bieber early this morning in Ibiza...Eyewitnesses say that
Orlando was in the celebrity-infested Cipriani restaurant when the incident
occurred. It was witnessed by the likes of Sean “Puffy” Combs and Paris
Hilton. Justin apparently ducked the punch and screamed, “What’s up,
b---h?” before he left the place. Everyone actually applauded when he
left...The bad blood between Orlando and Justin isn’t new. Justin was spotted
getting cozy with Miranda back in 2012 while she and Bloom were still very
married. And in a case of turnabout is fair play; Orlando was hanging with
Justin’s on-and-off girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
It’s a Girl for Maya Rudolph:
Maya Rudolph’s fourth child is almost a year old, and now we can tell you that
it’s a girl. TMZ obtained the birth certificate that says that she and her
longtime partner, director Paul Thomas Anderson, have a daughter named Minnie
Ida Anderson. The baby is named in honor of Maya’s mom, the late singer Minnie
Riperton. In California, parents have to file a birth certificate before the
baby is a year. Since little Minnie’s birthday is Friday, they just made it by
filing yesterday in Los Angeles.
Baby Number Two for Sarah Drew:
Congratulations are in order for Sarah Drew. Us Weekly says that the “Grey’s
Anatomy” star is expecting her second child with her husband, Peter Lanfer. In
a statement, Drew said, “We can’t wait to introduce Micah to his little
brother or sister.” She’s due in December.
Garner’s Cause of Death Revealed:
Thanks to the good folks over at TMZ, we now know what caused James Garner’s
death. The 86-year-old succumbed to a heart attack at his home on Saturday, July
19th. According to the death certificate, he also suffered from coronary artery
disease. Garner was best known for his Emmy-winning work on “Rockford
Katy Perry Tops YouTube - Although
2014 is far from over, Katy Perry should be happy to know her video for “Dark
Horse,” featuring Juicy J, is
really, really popular. In fact, the clip is YouTube’s Most Popular Video of
the Year so far, with over 500-million views...Landing in second place with more
than 350 million views is the Shakira and Rihanna collaboration “Can’t
Remember to Forget You,” followed by Shakira’s World Cup song “La La La
(Brazil 2014)” and the official FIFA World Cup track “We Are One (Ole Ola)”
from Pitbull, featuring Jennifer Lopez....Videos rounding out the Top Ten
include: Enrique Iglesias’ “Bailando (Espanol),” The Chainsmokers’ “#SELFIE,”
Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX, “Let It Go,” from
the “Frozen” soundtrack, Jason Derulo’s “Wiggle,” featuring Snoop Dogg,
and Enrique Iglesias again with “El Perdedor,” featuring Marco Antonio
New *NSYNC Record is a Surprise…to *NSYNC - Did
you know a new *NSYNC album came out yesterday? Well, "new" would be a
strong term, but technically “The
Essential *NSYNC” is new in stores. The record is basically a best-of album,
containing the 90s boy band's major hits, as well as some rarely heard songs,
like the “Sesame Street” tune “Believe
in Yourself,” and some tracks that only appeared on the Germany release of
their self-titled debut album...Well, if you had no idea bout its release,
you’re not the only one. In fact, *NSYNC's Lance Bass was just as shocked as
anybody. “I love when the record
label doesn't even tell you they are releasing a new 'NSYNC album tomorrow ! #TheyCare,"
he tweeted along with a picture of the record's Amazon ad...And thanks to the
publicity from Lance’s tweet, *NSYNC diehards got out their credit cards,
because Amazon quickly ran out of stock. Guess
old *NSYNC is better than no *NSYNC.
Amy Winehouse’s Dad Releasing Second Album - Amy
Winhouse’s father will release his second album in September.
According to Mitch Winehouse, “But Beautiful” will be made up of
tracks Amy helped pick out before her 2011 death. It will hit stores September
29th and all the proceeds will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which helps
young people battling addiction.
Major "Ninja Turtles" Poster Goof - Fans
are hungry for new footage and posters of "Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles," but one Australian promo had one glaring mistake...Paramount
Australia tweeted an official poster that showed the four turtles jumping off a
burning skyscraper. The movie takes place in New York City. The movie opens on
September 11th in Australia. Do you see the connection? Plenty of people on
Twitter did, causing a major PR headache for the company. The tweet was deleted
pretty quickly but there was no follow up statement.
"Batkid" Doc Fundraising Chugging Along - If
you're like Christian Bale or Ben Affleck, your favorite Batman is a
five-year-old from San Francisco. The story of Batkid, or Miles Scott, swept the
country back in November when the little guy got to save Gotham City, or San
Francisco, as part of the Make-a-Wish organization...As a new trailer explains,
the organization expected 250 people to help make the wish come true for the
five-year-old who battled leukemia. Instead, 25-thousand people lined the
streets of "Gotham" and Miles even got a shout out from President
Obama. Filmmaker Dana Nachman wanted to make a documentary about the story of
Batkid and needs our help to do it...In about two weeks of fundraising on
Indiegogo, the campaign has raised $50-thousand, half the goal. The fundraising
ends on August 19th. Check out the trailer released earlier this week to the
"Romy and Michelle" Sequel? - Will
we ever find out what happened to Romy and Michelle? According to actress Mira
Sorvino, it's up to Disney. 1997's "Romy and Michelle's High School
Reunion" became a cult hit and everyone is onboard for a sequel...except
the production company..."Disney, if you're listening—everybody wants
it!" Sorvino told eOnline. "Me and Lisa [Kudrow] and [creator/writer]
Robin Schiff would love to do a sequel. We have asked Disney before. It's Disney
that has to decide to say yes." "I don't think they realize what a
cult phenomenon it has become. I mean, people dress up as us for
Halloween!" the actress added..."People were like, 'Why aren't Romy
and Michelle at Comic-Con?'" Sorvino said. "I was like, 'It's not a
current movie. It's a while ago.' And it was like, 'When are you coming back?
When are you going to come here for the sequel?'" Get on it, Disney!
Michael Egan, the man who accused "X-Men"
director Bryan Singer of molesting him years ago, settle for $100-thousand
according to TMZ. Then, he changed his mind...and lost his lawyer in the
process. Jeff Herman wanted the case to be over and now that Egan has decided to
continue fighting, he's out.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy Leaving "DWTS" - Maksim
Chmerkovskiy is leaving “Dancing with the Stars.” According to Page Six, he
made his announcement during his appearance on “The View” yesterday, saying,
“I’m done dancing.”...Maksim, who’s rumored to be dating Jennifer Lopez,
went on to explain, “I’m blessed. I’m very honored. Inside, I’m
genuinely honored. I feel like I’ve done a lot and not enough for me. I looked
at last season and I fell in love with the show … I’m taking up a huge spot
and I don’t want to do that anymore.”...While the pro dancer was vocal about
his “DWTS” departure, he was less forthcoming about J-Lo. When Sherri
Shepherd asked if he’s leaving because she needed his services, Maksim just
smiled and laughed. His brother, Val, wouldn’t comment on Maksim’s love
life, saying, “I’m no snitch!” Meanwhile, “DWTS” returns – minus
Maksim – on Monday, September 15th on ABC.
Looks like Kirstie Alley’s TV return is short-lived. The
Hollywood Reporter says that TV Land has cancelled “Kirstie” after one
season. The comedy, which centered on a Broadway star whose son turns up to
reconnect with his biological mom dies, featured an all-star cast that included
Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards.
Lea Michele has landed a guest spot on “Sons of
Anarchy.” According to the New York Daily News, the “Glee” star tweeted
about it, along with a picture. She’ll play a truck stop waitress and single
mother who “connects with Gemma,” played by Katey Sagal, “during a
difficult time.” No word on when Lea’s episode will air, but Season seven of
“SOA” premieres in September.
What do Will Ferrell, Daniel Radcliffe, and Melissa
McCarthy have in common? It was announced yesterday that they’d all be getting
stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year...Dates for the unveiling
ceremonies haven’t been announced yet, and might not happen next year.
Honorees are expected to attend their star unveilings, so they’re given a
five-year window to schedule their event...Here’s a look at the movie stars
among the 2015 Hollywood Walk of Fame star recipients:
"Saved by the Bell" Gets the Biopic Treatment - Lifetime
is adding yet another biopic to its roster. This time, it’s a
behind-the-scenes look at “Saved by the Bell.” The Hollywood Reporter says
that “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story” will focus on the off-camera
experiences of Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dustin Diamond, Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber
Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Lark Voorhies. The movie exposes the challenges
of growing up under public scrutiny while trying to maintain the squeaky clean
images of their characters both on and off screen. “The Unauthorized Saved by
the Bell Story” stars Dylan Everett, Sam Kindseth, Julian Works, Alyssa Lynch,
Tiera Skovbye, and Taylor Russell McKenzie. Look for it to premiere on Monday,
September 1st on Lifetime.
"Better Call Saul" extended, delayed: There's
good and bad news for fans waiting for "Breaking Bad" spinoff
"Better Call Saul." Bad news, the premiere of the show has been pushed
back from fall 2014 to early 2015. Good news, it's already been picked up for a
second season, meaning there will be at least 23 episodes.
"Saturday Night Live" is getting a bit more
delicious. We told you about Ben & Jerry's plans to make "SNL"
inspired flavors, and now they're here! Lazy Sunday, based on the Lonely Island
digital short is vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate & yellow
cupcake pieces & a chocolate frosting swirl (supposedly tastes exactly as
described). Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch, based on Kristen Wiig's character, has
both chocolate and sweet cream ice cream mixed with caramel clusters,
fudge-covered almonds, and a marshmallow swirl. Two more flavors are expected to
be released to celebrate "SNL's" 40th anniversary. All four will only
be available at scoop shops. The upside? At least you can get them somewhere!
Justin Bieber Is a Good Guy Sometimes - Justin
Bieber is starting to give us whiplash. One week he’s telling racist jokes,
and another he’s making a young fan's dream come true..."Variety" is
reporting Grace Kesablak, a 10-year-old Make-A-Wish recipient got to go to the
Young Hollywood Awards Show in Los Angeles Sunday night with Justin as her arm
candy. Kesablak, who is battling cancer, walked the red carpet and later joined
Bieber on stage as he accepted his Champ of Charity Award. She even got a kiss
out of the deal...There are quite a few photos of the two having a good time at
the show and even hugging before he received his award. Bieber later posted
pictures of the two of them together on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
"OITNB" Feted at the Young Hollywood Awards - It
was all about “Orange is the New Black” at the 2014 Young Hollywood Awards

Hilary Duff’s Return to Music - Hilary
Duff is back on the music scene. The actress/singer's first new music since
2007, a track called “Chasing the Sun," debuted online yesterday,
although it appears to have been a leak since it wasn't supposed to come out
until today...Over the weekend, Duff teased the track on Instagram, posting a
video of her son Luca dancing to it during a day at the beach. In addition she
hired airplanes to fly along coastlines in major U.S. cities, pulling a banner
that read, “Hilary Duff – Chasing the Sun – July 29th!”...“Chasing the
Sun,” written by Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves and Toby Gad, is the first
single off Duff’s fifth studio album, her first since 2007’s “Dignity.”

Ed Sheeran Upset with new Facebook App - Ed
Sheeran is one of the famous faces linked to the new Facebook Mentions app,
which is supposed to make it easy for celebrities to interact with fans on the
social networking site. According to
Facebook, anyone who downloads the app can converse with participating public
figures, but even though Ed is one of the early VIPs, he’s not feeling it...Sheeran
isn’t the first VIP unhappy with Mentions. William Shatner complained about
the app after it suggested he follow “Star Trek” co-star George Takei, who
he has been feuding with for years. Seems
one of the requirements of the app
is that celebrities follow other celebs. "I
think that is a flaw," he said. "I'm already following those who I
want to follow -- why insist I follow that short list of others?"
Sherri Shepherd moving right along to big screen: Sherri
Shepherd may be most famous for her work on TV, but Deadline is reporting she's
moving to the big screen. The comedienne has been cast in a co-starring role in
"Ride Along 2." She joins stars Kevin Hart, Ice Cube, along with Ken
Jeong and Olivia Munn. Tim Story is back as director. "Ride Along 2"
is set for a January 5th, 2016 release.

reportingLauren Sanchez, who is sitting in on Today's episode, is high on the
list of permanent replacements. The site is claiming the show wants two new
co-hosts, one conservative and one Latina. Sanchez was almost hired back in 2000
but Lisa Ling got the gig.
"The Evil Dead" gets the TV Treatment: Rolling
Stone says that "The Evil Dead" is finally getting the TV treatment,

the series. At this point, Campbell is also set to star in it. Stay tuned...
