Check out Netflix's new 'Arrested Development' easter egg

Netflix is getting creative with its advertising for the galactically-anticipated re-debut of Arrested Development. Right now, if you search for something “blue” on the Netflix website — either just typing “blue,” or perhaps specifically looking for something with the word in the title, like Blue Velvet or Return to the Blue Lagoon or Mickey Blue Eyes — you’ll note errant bits of blue paint along the side, along with a telltale blue handprint. Clip on the image below for a look:

If you click on the handprint, the infamous “I just blue myself” scene from Arrested Development will play. No word

Ron Taylor obituary

Marine conservationist and film-maker who started out by hunting sharks and ended up defending them

Ron Taylor, who has died aged 78, was a great observer and defender of sharks. He began his career earning a living as a spearfisher, and later filmed some of the most exciting sequences for Steven Spielberg's 1975 film Jaws, but then spent the rest of his life educating people about the animals he regarded as "fascinating marine creatures". "There are over 360 different shark species in the world's oceans," he noted in an interview in 2007, "yet only a few of those are potentially dangerous. Each one has its own characteristics. Sharks have evolved to fulfil a different niche in the marine environment."

Sharks existed before the dinosaurs, and prospered for millions of years, yet during their lifetime Taylor and his wife, Valerie – an equally passionate advocate – saw them come under threat. Many are killed for their teeth,

Lifetime’s ‘Blue Lagoon’ Reboot Casts Leads

Exclusive: Young Australian actors Brenton Thwaites and Indiana Evans are following in the footsteps of Christopher Atkins & Brooke Shields and Brian Krause & Milla Jovovich as the leads of The Blue Lagoon, Lifetime’s contemporary remake of the 1980 romance/adventure movie starring Shields and Atkins. (Jovovich and Krause toplined the 1991 sequel.)

The Sony TV-distributed project has been in the works at Lifetime since 2004 with Heather Rutman and Matt Heller as writers. Filming is slated to begin this month in Puerto Rico.

'The Blue Lagoon' Getting A Remake On Lifetime

"A story of natural love," the poster for the 1980 film "The Blue Lagoon" proclaimed, hoping to deflect from the fact that the movie was essentially an excuse to get a teenage Brooke Shields to take off her clothes (though yes, body doubles were used too). That sensual story was told again in "Return To The Blue Lagoon" a PG-13 movie that still managed to get a 15 year old Milla Jovovich to disrobe. We'll pause while you pervs go to Netflix. Anyway, long story short, Deadline reports that Lifetime of all places, is plotting a remake. Weird, right? But apparently this thing has been in the works since 2004 and is now gearing up to shoot in February in Puerto Rico. Not word yet on what young, nubile, up-and-coming teen is going to get to get ogled, but it seems they need to find a director first. Just a couple of months to go there,

Milla Jovovich talks Resident Evil: Afterlife, says there are 'great ideas' for a fifth film

Unfolding in 3D for the first time, the fourth instalment of the Resident Evil series welcomes back British filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson to the helm, eight years after he directed the original.

Afterlife continues the adventures of Alice - played by Anderson's wife Milla Jovovich - as she battles the evil Umbrella Corporation.

Aside from the new screen format and a change of location to post-apocalyptic Los Angeles - complete with fire-ravaged Hollywood sign - the latest film delivers all of the same flesh-hungry zombies and blood-spattered action sequences for fans of the Capcom video games on which the series is based.

Anderson has evidently been re-watching The Matrix trilogy because almost all of the set pieces rely heavily on slow motion and bullet-time special effects with characters somersaulting to avoid the shells as they glide through the air. The film would be at least 10 minutes shorter if everything happened at real-time speed.

Milla Jovovich Career Assessment | Just Give the Woman a Mul-ti-pass Already

  • Pajiba
Subject: Milla Jovovich, 34-year old American (Ukranian-born) actress, model & singer

Date of Assessment: September 10, 2010

Positive Buzzwords: Gorgeous, workaholic, Leeloo

Negative Buzzwords: Lack of focus, possible failure to live up to potential

The Case: Yes, that's right. I've already pulled out the fucking "Mul-ti-pass" card, even though it means caving to platitudes already acknowledged by certified movie dorks everywhere. In fact, I should be ashamed of making such an obvious move that's a cliché in and of itself; and is best followed by an argument that, after pulling off Leeloo in The Fifth Element, we collectively expected better of Milla Jovovich than crap like The Fourth Kind and the never-ending Resident Evil franchise. That's not where I'm going, however, because I just don't see the point in reenacting that little sci-fi dork drama, which you can already read at just about any movie site. However, I do understand the somewhat high
