Zap2it: With the changes happening at other syndicated entertainment magazine programs -- "The Insider" morphing into "omg! Insider," Rob Marciano joining "Entertainment Tonight" as co-anchor -- how do you see those impacting "Extra"?
Maria Menounos: I haven't really focused much on them. For us, I feel like we have such a great opportunity because Mario (Lopez, Menounos' co-host) and I are a really good team. And I think our show is the best on the air right now. We're at every event, covering Hollywood from every angle. There's such an energy at The Grove (the Los Angeles site where "Extra" is taped), people from all over the world come and look for our show.
We're able to cover things like Hurricane Sandy in a real way, because of my journalism background, and no other show [like ours] has that or does that. I think we have something really unique and special, »
Gerard Pique got us good. The Spanish boyfriend of Shakira tweeted recently that she had finally given birth, but that has been revealed to be a prank Pique pulled for Dia de los Inocentes.
Shakira announced the baby news in September with a Facebook post, so it would have made sense for Pique to make the announcement over Twitter like he did. His message in Spanish translates to "Our son has been born! We are very happy! Thanks to all for your messages."
Earlier this month, Pique shared an ultrasound photo of their child. No word yet on when the newborn is actually due, but we'll be more skeptical until there's an official announcement this time around. »
"Tootsie" may have lost the Best Picture and Best Actor race to "Gandhi" 30 years ago, but if you're looking for laughs instead of epic grandeur, Dustin Hoffman in a dress can't be beat. The film, which opened on December 17, 1982, is still considered one of the funniest movies ever made. In 2000, the American Film Institute ranked it as the second funniest film of all time, just behind another classic cross-dressing comedy, "Some Like It Hot." The movie, which stars Hoffman as a difficult actor who can't get a job until he pretends to be a woman, earned 10 Oscar nominations, winning Best Supporting Actress for Jessica Lange. It was the second highest-grossing film of 1982, after "E.T. The Extraterrestrial," and still ranks high on the all-time box office list of comedies. It also boasts a hilarious performance from a deadpan Bill Murray, and marked the film debut of Geena Davis. So, where is the cast today? »

About a month ago, it was rumored that Kristen Stewart would be returning for a sequel to "Snow White and the Huntsman," despite the fact that Universal Pictures once considered making a spin-off focusing on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman character. Now, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Stewart confirmed that the studio is making a sequel and that she will reprise her Snow White role. "It's going to be f*cking amazing," she said. "I'm not allowed [to talk about it]. The other day I said that there was a strong possibility that we're going to make a sequel, and that's very true, but everyone was like, 'Stop talking about it.'" It seems that director Rupert Sanders won't be part of the sequel, mostly because his wife demanded that he doesn't work with Stewart anymore. »
As another day of painful funerals is scheduled to take place on Friday, seven days after the tragedy that took the lives of 20 children and six educators at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., First Lady Michelle Obama is telling the community there that the entire nation is "holding you in our hearts." "As a mother of two young daughters, my heart aches for you and your families. Like so many Americans, I wish there were something - anything - I could do or say to ease your anguish," Mrs. Obama states in an open letter published in Friday's Hartford Courant. »

Interview Sarah Dobbs Dec 20, 2012
Grabbers is the kind of film you want to tell people about. It’s an alien invasion movie with a twist: the aliens are deathly allergic to alcohol, so when they attempt to invade a small Irish island, the locals realise the only way to survive is to get wasted. It’s a fun movie with a surprisingly large heart, by turns scary, funny, gory, and adorable, and as soon as you’ve seen it you’ll want to make sure all your friends have, too.
We caught up with director Jon Wright ahead of the film’s UK release. And given the film’s subject matter, we decided the best place to conduct our interview was in a pub, over a couple of beers… »
Many consider 1982 to be one of the greatest years in movie history. With titles like E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Blade Runner, The Thing, Poltergeist, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and many other influential, revolutionary, unforgettable movies, it.s a year that will always be remembered as a landmark in pop culture history. And now 30 years later we have a year that could very well end up being remembered the same way. From start to finish 2012 has been an amazing year for the medium of film. We saw winners like The Grey and Haywire kick off the year, and great ones like Django Unchained, Life of Pi and Zero Dark Thirty close it out. Major franchises, like Christopher Nolan.s Dark Knight Trilogy, came to an end, new ones, like The Hunger Games began, and others started right back up, like Peter Jackson.s »
Howie Mandel has defended Take It All against criticism that the gameshow glorifies greed. Take It All has proven controversial because of its White Elephant-style emphasis on contestants stealing prizes from one another. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Mandel insisted that the gameshow is a fair representation of society. "There's been an open discussion about people's greed. We're putting up a mirror to who people are," he said. "But I don't know if we're showcasing greed or gamesmanship." He continued: "Is it worse to see somebody Take It All on my show, or is it worse to have a friendly card game every Tuesday night where you bluff and take your relatives' money? These are two consenting adults who came in with nothing and are fully ready to play a game. "Is that the perfect world? (more) »

Chicago – “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is the sort of extravagantly wrong-headed misfire that perhaps only could’ve been made by talented people. The director is Peter Hedges, an accomplished screenwriter best known for adapting his excellent book, “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” for the big screen. The ensemble cast reads like a roll call of America’s most reliable character actors.
What went wrong? Oh, where to begin? It appears as if Hedges had set out to construct a heartwarming family drama out of increasingly uncomfortable, squirm-inducing scenarios. Consider the multitude of moments in which goggle-eyed adults ask a child if they can touch him and he happily complies. Or the scene where that same creepy kid draws a startlingly sexy portrait of an old curmudgeon. Or how about all of those times when the saintly brat just stands there smiling for no apparent reason.
Blu-ray Rating: 1.5/5.0
Meet the extremely odd Timothy Green, »

Man of Steel won’t be hurting for an audience when the latest cinematic incarnation of Superman swoops into cinemas next summer. The casting of Henry Cavill (The Tudors, The Immortals) has been met with great enthusiasm from fanboys, media, and pretty much everyone with working eyeballs. The supporting players ooze quality and clout: Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne. That’s an all-star team-up of acting Avengers right there. Behind the camera, a marketable, geek-cool, movie-smart brain trust: producer Christopher Nolan, screenwriter David Goyer, director Zack Snyder. With talent like this above and below the line, »

There will be a Nirvana reunion of sorts during tonight's 12-12-12 benefit concert that is raising money to help victims of Hurricane Sandy, except instead of Kurt Cobain, Paul McCartney is going to be acting as the lead singer. The former member of The Beatles will be rocking out with Dave Grohl, Pat Smear and Krist Novoselic during the NYC show, but he didn't even realize what band the men were once in until someone pointed it out to him.
"I didn't really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together. I said: 'Whoa? You guys haven't played together for all that time?'" he recalls to The Guardian. "And somebody whispered to me: 'That's Nirvana. You're Kurt.' I couldn't believe it."
The group will reportedly play a new song that McCartney has been secretly working on with Grohl and Novoselic. »
Chicago – It’s that wonderful time of year when we look back on the 11 months that just sped by and try to capture what was best, worst, overlooked, and more. While most of these pieces will just make people disagree, our annual cavalcade of year-end features starts with a piece that you can use to do your holiday shopping! These were the best Blu-ray releases of 2012, a year that saw a bit of a plateau in the technology but still produced enough quality to make a top 20 easy to produce.
First, a few notes.
Considering how easy it would be simply to make a top ten list that was comprised entirely of Criterion Collection Blu-rays, the tough decision was made to eliminate them entirely from contention. While it would be unfair to include them as they’d probably take up at least half the list, it seems just as unfair to ignore them entirely. »

Rita Ora takes off into space in the video for her song “Radioactive.” It’s part “Tron,” part “Star Trek” and unfolds in what looks like a rocking ride through the galaxy. Someone should have told her Katy Perry used the same intergalactic theme for her “E.T.” video. The video also has a decided post-Apocalyptic vibe, which seems so popular these days. Rita does some dance moves in front of something that looks like a high-tech compass, Then, she spins slowly in a floating chair wearing a tiger-striped coat against a backdrop of space junk and industrial waste.

Charlie Sheen is unhappy that Lindsay Lohan never thanked him for giving her a reported $100,000. The 'Anger Management' star generously helped out his 'Scary Movie 5' co-star when he heard she was having financial difficulties after not being paid for one of her projects but Charlie admitted he is unimpressed that the 26-year-old actress accepted money from him but didn't acknowledge it. He told Entertainment Tonight: 'She got shorted and I found out, so I said: 'Here'. I'm still waiting for a text to say 'Thank you'. Anything you know?' Meanwhile it has been revealed Lindsay is struggling to pay her rent and has been scraping together all the money she can in order to pay $8,000 per month »
Britney Spears shows off her luscious blonde locks at the 'X Factor' viewing party in Los Angeles, California. The stunning judge turned heads in her little black embroidered dress, which revealed her new toned physique after working out at the gym. Is her wedding any closer?

When asked how the nuptials are going last month by Entertainment Tonight she responded they were getting there. She continued she and Jason are in the "beginning stages" of organizing their wedding. The 30-year-old also admitted to being a stickler for organization and cleanliness at home, while Jason, 41, is the polar opposite. Britney said: "I'm Ocd. I'm like, to the point where I'm completely anal and he's the complete opposite so we really butt heads in that department. »
