No Go, Tarantino: Judge Dismisses Hateful Eight' Lawsuit Against Gawker

9 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A federal district court judge has dismissed Tarantino's suit against Gawker Media. Following the script's leak back in January, Tarantino sued Gawker -- asserting that the online publication had "crossed the journalistic line" and violated copyright law by publishing the script without permission. Gawker maintained that linking to the script was "fair use," as it pertained to their report on Tarantino's reaction to the leak. In court documents quoted by TheWrap, the judge points out that Tarantino's suit is based on speculation and does not establish the facts. He writes, "Plaintiff's Complaint fails to allege the identity of a single third-party infringer, the date, the time, or the details of a single instance of third-party infringement, or, more importantly, how Defendant [Gawker] allegedly caused, induced, or materially contributed to the infringement by those third parties." In spite of dismissing the case, the judge provided Tarantino with the opportunity to file an. »

Baby Bump Face-Off! Kerry Washington vs. Stacy Keibler in Baby Bump Cutouts

just now | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We thought Kerry Washington was as bold as a baby-on-board celeb gets when she rocked her Prada two-piece on the SAG Awards red carpet, but it looks like Stacy Keibler is giving the Scandal star a run for her mommy money. The Dancing With the Stars champ stunned in a side cutout column that shows off a good chunk of her newly grown girth. As far as we're concerned, both women deserve a medal of honor for proudly going where no pregnant red carpet walker has gone before. But which style reigns supreme in your book? The ABC star's choice of a cropped top combo is bold for two reasons. 1. Her bump is exposed and 2. The look has a very youthful feel. We love the hot pink and black together, but the wide band and »

‘The Other Woman’ Poised To End ‘Captain America's’ Box-Office Reign

25 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The movie marketplace has been light on movies for women and comedies recently, and Fox's “The Other Woman” is both. That makes it a very good bet to knock “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” out of the top spot at the box office this weekend. The revenge tale stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton as wronged women wreaking havoc on a three-timing spouse, played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of TV's “Game of Thrones.” Taylor Kinney and Nicki Minaj co-star. Fox is projecting an opening in the mid-to-high-teen millions for the comedy, directed by Nick Cassavetes (“My Sister's Keeper”). That should be enough. »

Kim Kardashian's Big Booty Can't Help But Steal the Spotlight—Even in a Full-Length Skirt!

1 hour ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

There are moments when it's obvious that people will be staring at Kim Kardashian's butt (like this), but let's be real—the E! star doesn't have to be strutting a thong bikini on the beach for everyone's eyes to look directly at her backside. The soon-to-be bride was blessed with a bootylicious physique, that even when she's completely covered, her famous curve continues to steal the spotlight. For example: Kim stepped out with mom Kris Jenner earlier today wearing a loose, plunging black blouse with a full-length skirt. No biggie, right? Sure. Until Kim turned around.   North West's mama was photographed re-adjusting herself by looking at her reflection in »

'The Americans' Recap: Church of the Poison Mind

1 hour ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Sunday, they say, is the "Lord's day." But perhaps Philip and Elizabeth should have taken a page out of "Clark" and Martha's marriage playbook and opted for a "lazy morning" instead of going to church mere hours after infiltrating a contra training camp. Elizabeth, as cold-blooded and atheistic as ever, scoffs at the longhaired pastor's proclamations of God's love. Philip, on the other hand, is still reeling over the latest batch of innocent lives claimed during the raid. He may not have been raised to believe in hell, but he's »

Review: 'The Americans' - 'Martial Eagle'

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "The Americans" coming up just as soon as I wake up up to clean the fridge... "I'm not here to be saved." -Philip The driving question of "The Americans" season 1 was "How real is this marriage?" And at different points in the season, Philip and Elizabeth would have each given you very different answers. That tension hasn't entirely gone away in season 2 — witness the mess caused when Elizabeth hears about Clark and Martha's sex life — but for now they are treating each other as a genuine spouse, and instead the question they keep asking themselves is an even harder one: "What kind of a person am I becoming?" It's not that they are questioning the mission itself. Elizabeth never has, and when Philip has at times, it's been more about wanting to protect his family than about believing they are on the wrong side of things. »

Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong'o in Talks for Disney's Jungle Book

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

According to THR, Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong’o are in talks to join Disney’s upcoming Jungle Book movie, directed by king of the Swingers/soon-to-be Jungle VIP Jon Favreau (get it?) The live-action/CGI hybrid is shaping up to have a pretty stacked cast: The two starlets will join Idris Elba, who has has already been cast as the voice of Shere Khan, a man-eating tiger. Nyong’o is in negotiations to play Rakcha, a mother wolf who adopts Mowgli, while Johansson would voice the character of Kaa, a python who eats its victims by hypnotizing them. So, sort of like her recent turn as a seductive, man-eating alien in Under the Skin, only this time she will play a seductive snake who literally eats men. Typecasting! »

Is Stephen Colbert secretly a Hydra sleeper agent?

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Much like Hydra, the subversive organization set on world domination, Stephen Colbert is a master deception, and of the long game. For the past eight and a half years, we’ve been fooled by the talk-show host, who’s so adept at the art of subterfuge that, in the wake of Steve Rogers’ “death” in 2007, he was bequeathed Captain America’s shield, which to this day is displayed — like a trophy! — on the set of "The Colbert Report". Heck, he was so bold, so self-assured, that he even made a run for the White House in the Marvel Universe (a bid that was unsuccessful, thankfully). But this week, Colbert finally revealed his true colors: As Marvel notes, one eagle-eyed fan spotted the phrase “Hail Hydra” was inserted into the opening of Monday’s show, making it all too clear where Colbert’s allegiances lie. Our eyes now are open »
