No Go, Tarantino: Judge Dismisses Hateful Eight' Lawsuit Against Gawker
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
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 »
Amy Purdy Shows Off Her Specially Designed 'New Feet' for Dancing with the Stars
var brightcovevideoid = '3482938712001'; For paralympian Amy Purdy, there are the "everyday feet" and, now, the dancing feet. During a break in rehearsals for Dancing with the Stars, Purdy, 34, whose legs were amputated below the knees when she was 19, displayed the special prosthetics molded to fit high heels. "I wasn't able to get the hip motion with my everyday feet," she tells People. "So I decided to try these other feet. I originally got these just thinking they were a little bit prettier and I could wear a taller heel and maybe for a tango." When she attached them, "It »

Tribeca Film Review: ’5 to 7′
Aspiring novelist Brian Bloom (Anton Yelchin) receives nothing but rejection letters from publishers, but when it comes to romance, he has considerably better luck, earning coy encouragement from Arielle (Berenice Marlohe), a beautiful French woman he spies smoking on a New York sidewalk. There’s just one catch: She’s married, and the couple can only meet between the hours of 5 and 7, which isn’t nearly enough to satisfy this smitten scribbler. Courageously sentimental in an age of irony, Victor Levin’s refreshingly articulate “5 to 7” delivers romance of the sort thought lost since the days of Audrey Hepburn, for those who appreciate such finery. And who doesn’t?
Truth be told, the times are startlingly harsh for stories designed to make audiences actually feel something, and “5 to 7” risks ridicule from those who can’t abide Levin’s earnest, heart-on-his-sleeve approach. Like his naive 24-year-old protagonist, Levin would rather crash and »

Grumpy Cat Takes Over American Idol, Arrow's Shocking Death and More Omg TV Moments

You might accuse us of getting carried away with our television emotions and we might gasp and deny it profusely because Arrow just blew our freakin' minds, and then we might fall to our knees in distress and throw our fists in the air and shout, "Why, TV gods, why?!" Anyway, let's get to it. Warning, spoilers for Wednesday's TV shows ahead! Arrow: Basically, everything came to some sort of head in tonight's ep, "Seeing Red," and we need bullet points to deal with it »

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