Seth MacFarlane sued over Ted talking bottle opener

20 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ted creator Seth MacFarlane is being sued over film merchandise

Michael Cram, the inventor of a talking bottle opener, claims that the movie's promotional products - specifically the talking Ted bottle opener - infringe his copyright.

Cram, who has merchandise partnerships with the likes of Nascar and the NFL, claims that he created the no-button bottle opener and the talking beer mug.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he claims that MacFarlane stole his idea for a talking bottle opener, which was sold along with special edition Ted DVDs.

Cram has a licensing deal with MacFarlane's Family Guy and therefore claims that the film's creator is well aware of the product being his intellectual property.

Ted 2 is being released on June 26.

Mark Wahlberg returns as John Bennett in the film, while MacFarlane voices Ted and performs motion capture for the character.

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Spirit Awards and pre-Oscar gatherings highlight a busy Saturday for Hollywood

22 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Better late than never on filing a report from yesterday's Spirit Awards and pre-Oscar festivities, I guess. It was a late night, Harvey Weinstein and his peeps rounding things out with a big soiree/dinner that drew to a close around midnight, so my bed was far more enticing than my keyboard when I got back to the homestead. The Spirit Awards are generally my favorite event of the season, largely because the imbibing starts early and the attitude is super lax. But it's also my own personal bow on things (as I always happily steer clear of the Oscars), saying final goodbyes to colleagues and talent I've interacted with consistently over the season. And given that Film Independent was apparently looking to break the record for most commercial breaks in a single awards show, I was able to bounce around and catch up with just about everyone I was hoping to. »

Jack Nicholson -- I'll Sell You My Lakers Tix ... I'm Sorta Over It

22 February 2015 12:45 AM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Lookin' for some insane courtside seats to the Lakers game? Jack Nicholson tells TMZ Sports he's willing to sell you his for face value ... since he's not as motivated to go the Staples Center as he used to be. It's actually pretty sad ... Nicholson -- who's been a staple at the Lakers games for decades -- was leaving Madeo in Beverly Hills when he told us he's just not as into the Lake Show as he used to be. »

Trailer for 'Champs', Upcoming Boxing Documentary Takes an Inside Look

16 February 2015 11:27 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't say I'm necessarily a fan of boxing, granted, it's a sport that makes for great cinema with everything from Rocky to the recent Oscar-winner The Fighter, not to mention even the bare-knuckle moments in something like Snatch, but when Mike Tyson was fighting I was absolutely interested. The guy was just so intense, but when his reign ended and he decided to bit Evander Holyfield's ear off I was pretty much done with boxing... Well, done considering how little I had invested in the first place. That said, the cinematic intrigue boxing holds doesn't end and it would appear the next interesting feature to arrive is in the form of the documentary Champs, set to premiere in theaters and on iTunes on March 13 and the trailer has just arrived. Featuring the likes of Tyson and Holyfield along with some celebrity contributions including Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington and Ron Howard, »

Watch: See the Dark Side of Boxing in 'Champs' Documentary Trailer

13 February 2015 1:03 PM, PST | | See recent news »

As someone who isn't the biggest sports guy, the fascination with the sport of boxing is a mystery to me. But at the same time, I've enjoyed many a boxing drama, from Rocky to The Fighter. But for those who have an interest in boxing, there's a new documentary on the way called Champs, which profiles heavyweight championship boxers like Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and Bernard Hopkins. Helped along by interviews with boxing fans and pop culture figures like Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Ron Howard, Spike Lee and more, this looks like something accessible for even the most clueless sports fan, and actually looks at the darker side of the sport, exploiting these athletes for their skills. Watch below! Here's the first trailer for Bert Marcus' documentary Champs, originally from Apple: Champs is directed by Bert Marcus. Boxing, "the poor man’s sport," has long given kids from America »

Nick Jonas will host the 2015 Kids' Choice Awards.

Amy Schumer's Trainwreck Trailer Is Sexy, Dirty And Beyond Hysterical

11 February 2015 9:37 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The pairing of Judd Apatow with hilarious (and hilariously filthy) stand-up comedian Amy Schumer has us excited for the summer comedy Trainwreck. Mix in the presence of Bill Hader, Vanessa Bayer, Colin Quinn, John Cena and LeBron James, and our anticipation is through the roof. Well, the first trailer just dropped on Schumer.s Twitter feed, and you can get your first look right here: From the looks of this first trailer, Amy Schumer is playing an arrested development adult who was taught at a very young age (by an irresponsible father) that monogamy doesn.t work. By the time she reaches her 30s, she.s bouncing from man to man on one-night stands that don.t lead to much. John Cena plays one of those random hook ups, and I didn.t think about it until I saw it, but yes. He totally does look like Mark Wahlberg, if »

Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck' Trailer Starring Amy Schumer

11 February 2015 8:53 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Comedian Amy Schumer unveiled the first trailer for her upcoming comedy Trainwreck on her official Twitter page earlier today, giving fans a glimpse at the rising star's first starring role in a feature film. Amy Schumer also wrote the screenplay, loosely based on her own life experiences, following a woman named Amy (Amy Schumer) who will do anything to avoid commitment, until she falls for a doctor, played by Bill Hader.

Director Judd Apatow returns to the big screen for his first directorial effort since 2012's This Is 40 with Trainwreck. The trailer also features a number of amusing supporting roles, including NBA star LeBron James as a version of himself, who apparently is a huge fan of Downton Abbey, and WWE Superstar John Cena as a man who doesn't appreciate being compared to Mark Wahlberg. The cast is rounded out by Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer, Tilda Swinton, »

Calling It Now: 2015 Is the Year of the Bulge

10 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »


Move over, Nicki and Iggy. You may have helped make 2014 the year of the booty, but bulge is totally taking over 2015. And we’re more than Ok with that.

From Justin Bieber‘s controversial Calvin Klein ads, to Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s attempt at making light of a serious situation, everyone is getting in on the penis fun. Or, the not-so-much fun if you’re the guy who got his man parts burned off. (Don’t piss off your girlfriend, boys.)

Nick Jonas, Zac Efron, and more stars are hopping on the bulge bandwagon, and lucky for us, it’s only February. Here is how 2015 is already the year of the penis:

Is Justin Bieber’s bulge real or nah?

Justin Bieber’s bulge-bearing Calvin Klein ads surfaced, but he wasn’t as lucky as Mark Wahlberg. Rather than getting a pat on the back, everyone questioned the true size of »

Jonathan Liebesman to direct Transformers 5? Quintessons, Ultra Magnus and Cyclonus to appear?

4 February 2015 4:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Get your salt at the ready, because it’s time to take this bit of news with a pinch of it.

According to websites Enstarz and Crossmap, Michael Bay is stepping down from the director’s chair of Transformers 5 and will be replaced with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles director Jonathan Liebesman. The sites claim “sources” have told them this is a done deal and are reporting this as fact, but there are no official confirmations.

However, Liebesman is not returning to direct Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (which instead is being helmed by David Green) so his schedule is free to take on Transformers 5, which is apparently set for release in 2016.

The sites also claim that the plot of the movie will be based in outer space, with Optimus Prime seeking out the Quintessons (described as “the creators” in Transformers: Age of Extinction) and the Autobots will be joined by Ultra Magnus, »
