From Sports Cars to Helicopters: How Our Favorite Celebs Travel

  • SoundOnSight
Wouldn’t it be amazing to travel by private jet, skipping all of those airport lines, or to have a collection of fancy sports cars? Well, while most of us can keep dreaming, those are just two of the high-class ways our favorite celebrities get around.

As they all flit off on fabulous summer vacations, we may catch a peak at some of these seven beauties shuttling down the runway or pulling up to the fanciest hotel in town.

On The Sporty Side

Sports cars are the bread and butter transport – they all own a few, filling out multi-car garages attached to Beverly Hills’ homes. But anyone can buy a Fiat or a Ferrari off the lot, so how special could these speedsters really be? Well, if you’re talking about Jay-z’s Maybach Exelero, the answer is very special. Price at a sweet $8 million, the car is entirely one

First Oprah Book Club Author Jacquelyn Mitchard Reveals How She Lost Everything After Selling Millions
Do you remember Jacquelyn Mitchard, the first author selected for Oprah's Book Club? Her debut novel, The Deep End of the Ocean, was published in June 1996, and Oprah-endorsed in September of that year, which helped it rocket to the top of the New York Times best-seller list. But it wasn't all smooth sailing for Mitchard from there: 13 years after the success of The Deep End of the Ocean, Mitchard received a nightmarish phone call: All of her bank accounts - including funds set aside for her children's college education, were empty.

Two if by Sea: Howard’s Whaling Expedition Sinks to the Fathoms

Herman Melville’s 1851 novel Moby-Dick is one of the seminal epics of American literature, adapted several times for film and television over the decades, though John Huston’s 1956 film version still stands as the most accomplished cinematic rendering. Director Ron Howard adapts Nathaniel Philbrick’s 2000 novel In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, a retelling of the aquatic ordeal upon which Melville based his famous text. Suffering from some obnoxious moments of stilted bids at heroic nobility from its central characters and weighted down with considerable cliché, the screenplay, adapted by Charles Leavitt, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver, is a framed narrative that doesn’t seem to have sparked the passion of its adapters. Saddled with a PG-13 rating, which hampers the narrative’s more sensational elements, (such as the depiction

Sandra Bullock Had An Historically Bad Weekend

Sandra Bullock is still well known as one of America’s sweetheart’s of acting. After a string of not-so-great movies interspersed with some solid money makers, she bounced back big time with The Blind Side in 2009, won an Oscar, and has continued to rack up critical and financial successes since. Now, though, her career has hit a bit of a stumbling block -- temporarily. As reported by Yahoo Movies, Our Brand is Crisis just opened in 2,202 theaters, and only made $3.4 million at the box office. making it the lowest wide opening of the actress's career. Granted, the weekend was filled with Oscar bait flops like Burnt and Truth, but those movies didn’t enjoy nearly as much of a promotional push as Our Brand is Crisis. Sandra Bullock’s previous box office bomb opening was Two If by Sea, a little film that ...

Box Office: 'Our Brand Is Crisis,' 'Burnt,' 'Scouts Guide' All Bomb

Box Office: 'Our Brand Is Crisis,' 'Burnt,' 'Scouts Guide' All Bomb
Illustrating the limits of star power, “Our Brand is Crisis” and “Burnt” were both roundly rejected by audiences over Halloween weekend despite the presence of Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper.

Our Brand is Crisis,” a political satire about a spin-doctor navigating a Latin American presidential election, is the worst wide release opening of Bullock’s career, sliding in below “Two If By Sea,” which opened to $4.7 million in 1996. It debuted to a dreadful $3.4 million across 2,202 locations. Warner Bros. distributed the $28 million production and co-financed the film with Participant Media.

“We’re proud of the movie, we had higher expectations and we’re obviously disappointed,” said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. distribution executive vice president.

Not that Cooper fared much better playing a down-and-out chef trying to score a comeback in “Burnt.” The Weinstein Company distributed the critically scorched dramedy, which made a meagre $5 million bowing across 2,900 theaters. It cost roughly $20 million

'Spectre' Huge Overseas as 'Martian' Tops Worst Weekend of 2015

'Spectre' Huge Overseas as 'Martian' Tops Worst Weekend of 2015
For the third weekend in a row the conversation concerns new films failing to meet expectations, though this Halloween weekend in particular is even more dire. With newcomers Burnt and Our Brand is Crisis falling well below even the most pessimistic of predictions, this was the worst weekend of 2015 yet with the top twelve tallying an estimated $62 million. That's $3.8 million below the first weekend in September when War Room topped the box office in its second weekend in release with only $9.4 million. However, in more positive news, Sony reports Spectre is breaking records left and right as it hits theaters overseas. Let's get to it... Beginning with the domestic box office, Fox has a bonafide hit on their hands as The Martian finished #1 for the second weekend in a row and the fourth weekend out of the five it has been in theaters. Dropping only 27.5%, adding another $11.4 million to its total,

Box Office: ‘Burnt,’ ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ Fizzle Over Slow Holiday Weekend

Box Office: ‘Burnt,’ ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ Fizzle Over Slow Holiday Weekend
Despite the hefty star power of Bradley Cooper and Sandra Bullock, new releases “Burnt” and “Our Brand Is Crisis” can’t stand up to reliable holdovers “The Martian” and “Goosebumps” over a slow Halloween weekend at the multiplex.

Fox’s “The Martian” won the Friday sales race with $3.5 million in 3,218 locations; the Matt Damon starrer is expected to finish its fifth weekend with $10.5 million, bringing its cumulative haul above $180 million. Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig and Chiwetel Ejiofor also star in the Ridley Scott-helmed sci-fi endeavor.

Behind “The Martian” is Sony’s Jack Black starrer “Goosebumps,” which took in $3 million from 3,618 locations, heading for a weekend total around $9 million. Now in its third frame, the PG-rated scare-fest is an adaptation of R.L. Stine’s beloved series of scary children’s stories.

Disney’s “Bridge of Spies” and Sony’s “Hotel Transylvania 2” are both outperforming the new releases as well,

Box Office: Sandra Bullock’s ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ Heading for Dismal Debut of $3.5 Million

Box Office: Sandra Bullock’s ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ Heading for Dismal Debut of $3.5 Million
Sandra Bullock’s “Our Brand Is Crisis” is living up to its name at the nation’s multiplexes with a disappointing $3.5 million opening weekend at 2,202 U.S. locations, early estimates showed Friday.

Should the estimate hold, “Our Brand Is Crisis” would be the worst opening for a wide-release Bullock title. That distinction had previously been held by romantic comedy “Two If by Sea,” which opened with $4.7 million in 1996.

The political dramedy — which had been forecasted in recent days to finish around $6 million — won’t even crack the top five titles during the Halloween weekend, which will be one of the slowest of the year. The fifth weekend of Fox’s “The Martian” looks like the probable winner at about $10 million, followed by the third weekend of Sony’s “Goosebumps” with $9 million and Disney’s third weekend of “Bridge of Spies” at $7 million.

Details on Rage Dlc "The Scorchers" Leaked by PS3 Trophies

By Joseph Leray

PlayStation 3 Trophy information has outed a new downloadable campaign for Rage, id Software's post-apocalyptic shooter from last year.

A campaign called "The Scorchers" will feature a new difficulty and a new job path to play through, as well as two new minigames, called "Roly Poly" and "Video Poker," judging by the descriptions of the ten PS3 trophies. "The Scorchers" seems like it could be a substantial bit of work, introducing five new areas and new combat options, including a railgun and rebar ammo.

Given that this campaign hasn't been formally announced, there aren't any story details to share, but The Scorchers were a faction in Rage that, for whatever reason, never made it into the final game.

The new trophy information on "The Scorchers" corresponds with a Pegi listing from earlier this year that suggests the Dlc will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Hawk-eyed fans

Review: 'Hitman: Absolution' - Killing Them Softly (And Loudly, And Brutally)

Here's something funny: "Hitman: Absolution" really snuck up on me in terms of how much I enjoyed it. I like stealth games to a point, particularly the kinds of tightly-scripted, super conditional stealth games requiring almost a neurotic level of observation of enemy behavior and a constant sense of panic that you will mess up and have to restart. But developer Io Interactive has used the time since 2006's "Blood Money" to create hooks that reward the obsessive gamer, while making systemic changes that give your stealthy assassin Agent 47 more tools in dealing with his targets and NPCs.

In spite of some minor quirks, and a pretty slim story that starts to lose its tone along the way, Io's return to the bald assassin is still a pretty terrific game.

The game opens with Agent 47 pursuing an unexpected target: his former handler, Diana, who's accused of making off with a

Review: 'Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition' - No Tko Here

You can't play "Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition" with a GamePad. I mean, you can but you really wouldn't want to.

Two months after Namco Bandai's very good fighter made its way to the PS3 and Xbox 360, we've got an even more feature-rich of the game on the Wii U. And while "TTT2 Wii U" is more or less the same game you might have been playing back in September, it's not one that fighting fans can readily play with the Wii U base hardware, it's not a game without some performance issues, and it's simply not the optimal way to play "Tekken Tag Tournament 2."

Every feature from the 360 and PS3 release appears to have made its way over to the Wii U--Arcade mode, Fight Lab, online multiplayer, and character customization are here on the Wii U with the addition of some cool second screen support should you find yourself using the GamePad.

Assassin’s Creed III Achievements Leaked

An unconfirmed Achievement list for Assassin’s Creed III has been leaked online, revealing a little bit about the game’s plot and some new features.

Assuming the list is accurate, the leaked Assassin’s Creed III Achievements do contain a few spoilers for the upcoming game. Consider this fair warning.

The best news is that the game’s multiplayer Achievements make up only 80G (spread out over five Achievements) of the total 1000G. Reaching level 20 and unlocking one hacked Astergo video seem to be the two that will be the most time-consuming, so those who prefer single-player won’t be missing much.

As for Assassin’s Creed III‘s single-player Achievements, it appears that you will visit a stadium and skyscraper during the modern-day portions of the game, before traveling to the Abstergo laboratory. Exactly what happens at all three locations is not known, however, at some point you
