In an exclusive interview with The Guardian, pop singer and former Spice Girls member Melanie Brown made some pretty surprising revelations about her sex life, her career and some of her past scandals.

Jack Reynor is likely Hollywood's next biggest star. The young actor can be seen in this weekend's Transformers: Age Of Extinction , and the offers are about to spill over. Credit to Casey Affleck for spotting talent when he sees it, because it looks like Reynor is Affleck's new leading man for a biopic about baseball player Josh Hamilton. Deadline is reporting that Jack Reynor will play Josh Hamilton in a movie written and directed by Casey Affleck. Based upon the memoir Beyond Belief: Finding The Strength To Come Back, which Hamilton co-wrote, this film would tell the story of one man's fight against drug addiction to return to the top of the sport. The guess is, this will focus primarily on Hamilton's early days, since Reynor is only 22, and Hamilton was 27 when he returned from the brink. Josh Hamilton was the first overall pick of the 1999 Major League Baseball draft. »

One of the more popular things you can find in the Godzilla franchise, especially during the Showa era, is the appearance of two 6-inch tall women known as the Shobijan, or more commonly... The Mothra Twins.
We decided to take a look at it for ourselves, and yes, it does appear that the infamous Shobijan may be present and accounted for during a scene around the 30-second mark in the trailer. We've grabbed multiple screenshots from the scene in question and have them for you below. »

Using the name Greg, Lanza posits to the radio hosts that not much separates someone who seemingly randomly commits mass murder from the chimpanzee that tore up the face of a woman in Connecticut.
“His attack can be seen entirely parallel to the attacks and random acts of violence that you bring up on your show every week, »
