She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls-the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) and the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung)-to band together and try to escape a terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac) and Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino), before the mysterious High Roller (Jon Hamm) comes for Babydoll. Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey-if they succeed-will set them free.. — (C) Warner Bros

After crashing her car Sunday, police said a Scranton woman suspected of burglarizing the Dunmore Inn was found to have a sizeable stash of drugs and money hidden in an unlikely location.
According to a criminal complaint:
Dunmore police Officer Anthony Cali asked Scranton police Officer Nancy Baumann to detain Karin Mackaliunas, 27, 1609 Mulberry St., at the scene of a crash at the North Seventh Avenue off-ramp Sunday evening.
After her car was towed, Ms. Mackaliunas was ready to leave the scene of the crash when Officer Cali contacted Officer Baumann and asked for Ms. Mackaliunas to be detained because she was suspected of stealing items from the inn.
After searching her for weapons, Officer Baumann found three bags of heroin in Ms. Mackaliunas’ jacket.
But as the officer drove her to Scranton police headquarters to charge her for drug possession, Officer Baumann noticed Ms. Mackaliunas fidgeting in the backseat of the cruiser.
After a struggle with Officer Baumann during a more thorough search at headquarters, Ms. Mackaliunas asked to speak with Sergeant Michael Mayer and told him she had hidden more heroin in her vagina.
A search of Ms. Mackaliunas by a doctor at Community Medical Center turned up 54 bags of heroin, 31 empty bags used to package heroin, 8.5 prescription pills and $51.22.
Ms. Mackaliunas was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Elizabeth Taylor, the violet-eyed femme fatale whose smoldering talent and eight marriages made her a legend of Hollywood’s golden era, died on Wednesday March 23, 2011 in Los Angeles. She was 79.
The two-time Oscar winner suffered from congestive heart failure and had been hospitalized in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center since mid-February.
“We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it,” her son Michael Wilding said in a statement to The Times. “Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.” He and Taylor’s other children, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd and Maria Burton, were with their mom when she died, publicist Sally Morrison said.
Taylor, child actress turned adult Academy Award-winner and AIDS/HIV activist, was also known for her beauty and her love life — married eight times to seven men, with Richard Burton the one with whom she once said the love “was just too much” — as well as her friendship with the late Michael Jackson. While movie critic Kenneth Turan, in an appreciation, remembers the violet-eyed actress as being in “a class by herself”:
Her astonishingly dramatic personal life, characterized by full-throttle romantic love and later recriminations, serious illnesses and tragic deaths, matched the drama of her on-screen roles stride for stride and maybe even bested it.
Her movies — to name but a few — included “Lassie Come Home” and “National Velvet” as a tween ; “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” with Paul Newman; “Giant” with Rock Hudson and James Dean; “Cleopatra,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” and more with Richard Burton; and “Butterfield 8” with Eddie Fisher. “Virginia Woolf” and “Butterfield 8” had her winning lead actress Oscars.
Plot Synopsis:Josh and Renai have three children, the oldest is ten-year-old Dalton. As they begin to settle into a new home, they experience strange noises and other unexplained phenomena. Soon Dalton is rushed to the hospital in a coma, suffering a severe head injury after falling in the attic. Months slip by, and the doctors still have no explanation for his continuing coma. When the boy is returned home under his mother’s care, more frightening events occur in the home. The mother is so horrified that she moves the family to a another new home in hopes of leaving the fearful memories behind them.
The family quickly discovers that the haunting has nothing to do with their home. The supernatural outpouring is coming from their comatose son. Several scientific experts observe the son, the family and their home. They determine that Dalton is trapped on the other side in a dark world they call “The Further”. The parents team with the scientists to try to bring their boy back from The Further and save him from the clutches of a dark entity that hopes to claim him as his own.
PG13 means instead of a lame gore-fest, it’s actually going to have to focus on psychological horror, which IMO is much scarier.
Charlie Sheen has been fired from CBS’s “Two and a Half Men.” No decision has been made about the future of the show, according to multiple sources who have knowledge of the situation; they did not wish to be identified because they were not authorized to speak about the details of the situation.
Warner Bros. TV, which produces the show for CBS, did the firing, in a letter sent Monday to Sheen’s lawyer.
“Your client has been engaged in dangerously self destructive conduct and appears to be very ill,” Warner Bros. TV said in the letter addressed to Martin Singer. “For months before the suspension of production, Mr. Sheen’s erratic behavior escalated while his condition deteriorated. His declining condition undermined the production in numerous and significant ways. Now, the entire world knows Mr. Sheen’s condition from his alarming outbursts over just the last few weeks.”

This will explain some confusion when watching the trailer. Keep checking back with MyEvilStar.com as we will continue to have the newest and most recent updates.
“Green Street Hooligans” chooses an unexpected entry point into this world. Its hero is Matt Buckner (Elijah Wood), a bright Harvard student kicked out of school two months before graduating after his roommate forces him to take the fall for some cocaine found in their room. The Harvard business is not convincing but motivates Matt to visit his sister Shannon (Claire Forlani) in London. Her husband, Steve (Marc Warren), more or less forces his brother Pete (Charlie Hunnam) to take Matt to a football match.
Wood, who can seem harmless enough to be cast as Frodo in “Lord of the Rings,” might appear to be the last person who’d be interested in the violent world of a firm. But the movie is about the way men who run in packs need to belong and to prove themselves. In a series of gradual stages, which are convincing because we see his early resistance wearing down, Matt tries to become accepted by the Green Street Elite. This involves fighting at their side, which he does with more recklessness than skill.
He has become addicted. He was a journalist at Harvard, an editor of the Crimson, and now he keeps a journal: “I’d never lived closer to danger — never felt more confident.” Life in the firm makes his previous life seem insubstantial and unreal; what is real is bonding with other men and beating the crap out of opposing firms.
Don’t assume you know who will die. It isn’t who you might think. Of the dead man, we are told: “His life taught me there’s a time to stand your ground. His death taught me there’s a time to walk away.” I guess the time to walk away is before you get killed standing your ground, unless you have a very good reason for standing it. The most frightening thing about the Green Street Elite is the members think they have such a reason, and it is loyalty to the mob.
CBS announced late Thursday it has ended production of the hit comedy “Two and a Half Men” for the season.
The move came after the show’s star Charlie Sheen’s took to the air waves to slam “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre in a rambling, erratic interview on the syndicated radio show “The Alex Jones Show.”
“Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of “Two and a Half Men” for the remainder of the season,” CBS Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television said a statement. The show has been in hiatus since January when Sheen entered rehab following erratic behavior.
Sheen addressed the suspension of the show in an open letter obtained by TMZ.
“What does this say about [anti-Semitic term referring to Chuck Lorrie] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows,” Sheen writes. “I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth.
Dwayne Johnson Returns on screen as “the Rock” in FASTER. Although his charcter is officially titled “driver” old fans will recognize the on screen presence of the wrestler people loved to hate. FASTER (Directed by: George Tillman Jr. Written by: Tony Gayton and Joe Gayton CoStarring: Billy Bob Thornton, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Carla Gugino, Maggie Grace) reminded me of the “Drive-in Films” of the 70’s when macho existentialists drove muscle cars across the California desert just for the pleasure of killing each other. Cars screeching backward, forward, and sideways, and when people in this movie die, they die brutally. But the script by Tony and Joe Gayton is just as interested in the ways guilt and vengeance can warp a soul, and it pulls a sharp performance from Thornton as a dirty little man trying to wash himself clean.
AntiHero Rock plays “The Driver,’’ released from a 10-year prison stretch embarks on a methodical quest to avenge himself against the crew that murdered his bank-robbing brother (Matt Gerald). Billy Bob Thornton “The Cop’’ — who, when he isn’t shooting up heroin in toilets, is investigating The Driver’s long trail of bodies, and “The Killer’’ (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), a professional assassin hired to bring The Driver down. The latter is both the movie’s most original creation and its silliest — a handsome yuppie software billionaire so bored with post-buyout life that he takes hit-man jobs for a dollar a pop. When he isn’t neurotically stalking his quarry, The Killer is fretting about emotional issues and proposing to his girlfriend (Maggie Grace of “Lost’’) via Bluetooth.
You can catch the big twist two thirds into the movie, as The Driver’s targets shift gradually from creeps to flawed dads to a testifying man of God (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Overall I really enjoyed FASTER and although the movie felt a litte dry at times I still felt there was plenty of story behind each charcters (which I hope will lead to future spin-off movies). FASTER has the heart of a 70’s action movie with a subtle homage to Sergio Leone’s “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.’’ the later of which was a suprising after thought reveal thanks to the help of a ringtone.
Prosecutors said Tuesday they plan to charge Lindsay Lohan with felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace reported stolen from a jewelry store last month — the most serious count the actress has faced in more than three years of trouble with the law.
Los Angeles police said Feb. 2 that Lohan was under investigation for taking a necklace from a Venice store later identified as Kamofie and Co. Detectives obtained a search warrant to try to retrieve the item from Lohan’s home, but it was turned in to a police station before any search was made. Police said they had no update on the case Tuesday and did not say whether the actress had made arrangements to turn herself in at court or at a police station. Robison said bail would be decided by a judge.
A phone message to Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, was not immediately returned. Holley has previously denied any wrongdoing by Lohan.
“We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press,” Holley said in a statement released Saturday.
The new case represents the most serious charges the “Mean Girls” star has ever faced. Arrested twice in 2007, Lohan was charged with drunken driving and drug possession, but both were misdemeanors. Lohan remains on probation for drunken driving. A judge had threatened to throw her in jail if she ran into trouble again. Prosecutors in Riverside County have been considering whether to press charges against Lohan for a December altercation with a worker from the Betty Ford Center, where she was being treated.
In London – Mexican Ambassador Eduardo Medina Mora was infuriated by “insults” made by presenters of the popular TV motoring show “Top Gear.” He has written a furious letter to BBC bosses to complain about “offensive and xenophobic” comments made by presenters Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May during Sunday’s episode of the cult show, which has been sold to television channels around the world.
“Why would you want a Mexican car? Because cars reflect national characteristics don’t they?,” said Hammond as they discussed the Mexican sports car, the Mastretta.
“Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat.”
To add insult to injury the comedic trio attacked the ambassador personally stating,
“That’s why we won’t get any complaints about this because at the Mexican embassy the ambassador’s going to be sitting there with a remote control like this,” said Clarkson, pretending to slump in a chair, snoring.
It is uncertain if the personal attack was “the straw that broke the camel’s back” but what is certain is that the ambassador did complain, demanding the BBC order the presenters to make a public apology.
“The presenters of the program resorted to outrageous, vulgar and inexcusable insults to stir bigoted feelings against the Mexican people, their culture as well as their official representative in the United Kingdom,” he wrote.
“These offensive, xenophobic and humiliating remarks serve only to reinforce negative stereotypes and perpetuate prejudice against Mexico and its people.”
“It is not a matter of taste but of basic principles.”
The BBC said in a statement:
“We have received a letter from the Mexican Ambassador, and shall respond to him directly.”
Top Gear is well-known for its edgy banter and its hosts are no strangers to controversy. Hundreds of viewers complained in 2008 about a joke made by Clarkson about murdering prostitutes.
Who’s the Boss? Chances are, it’s John Travolta. According to Marc Fiore — the CEO of Fiore Films, LLC — the Pulp Fiction star is in serious talks to play New York City mob boss John Gotti in Gotti, an upcoming film executive produced by Fiore about three generations of the crime family. (A call to Travolta’s representative was not immediately returned.) “We would love to have him,” Fiore tells EW. “He’s a terrific actor. John Gotti, Sr. — he’s an icon. And so is Travolta … The Gottis have an image already. People know who they are. You can’t just be a good actor, you have to be a great actor who can become John Gotti.”
As for who will direct the film about “the Teflon Don”, Fiore is finalizing a deal with Travolta’s Face/Off co-star — and The Notebook director — Nick Cassavetes. And another big name is being tossed around to play John Jr.: James Franco. Fiore says he is in very preliminary talks with Franco, but that he’s one of several “A-list actors” they are speaking to. (A rep for Franco, who already has a busy schedule ahead of him, confirms the preliminary status: “A script was sent to him. That’s all. There are no plans for him to do it at this time.”) Regardless of who jumps on board, Fiore says to expect a film that will recall another famous mobster tale. “It’s going to be the new Godfather,” Fiore says. “It’s a story about a father and a son, but the father happens to be John Gotti Sr.”
It certainly doesn’t hurt that the cast and crew will have help from a valuable source: The Gotti family. Fiore says the entire family has signed exclusives to be consultants on the film — which Fiore hopes to begin filming in summer 2011 — including John Gotti Jr., who worked on the script with writer Leo Rossi (who appeared in Analyze This) “every day.” “We have a real inside look,” says Fiore. “John, Jr. will answer any question you ask him. The Gotti family, they don’t try to put a sweater over things.”
