'Iron Man 3' poster: Gwyneth Paltrow looks sad
The flood of intriguing Iron Man 3 posters continues! Just a couple weeks after releasing an image of Don Cheadle dressed up like a robo-American Flag, Marvel has tweeted an evocative shot of Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. Paltrow spent the first couple Iron Man movies witty-bantering with Robert Downey Jr., but the new shot finds Paltrow looking despondent, cradling a slashed Iron Man helmet. Seriously, she looks sad. Like, take out the helmet, and this could practically be a poster for Proof 2: Proven. Check out the image below:

On the Peninsula

How Robert Lipsyte, author of the new memoir An Accidental Sportswriter, stood athwart the sports page yelling, "Stop!"

When a young man on the make tells me he wants to be a sportswriter, I tell him to read one book. It's called SportsWorld by Robert Lipsyte. Starting next month, I'll tell him to read another: An Accidental Sportswriter, which is functionally Lipsyte's sequel. In sportswriting's cosmic baseball card set-Jimmy Cannon! Dan Jenkins! Charlie Pierce!-you can find men who wrote as pretty as the former New York Times columnist. But Bob is the five-tool sportswriter. His beat is the ballpark, the '60s, African-American history, women's lib, Muslim theology, sports as metaphor, and-most interesting for you, young sportswriter-the craft of sportswriting itself.

Lipsyte is the guy who makes us ask the pencil-stopping question: Are sportswriters wasting their careers?

Released on DVD on March 14th, Savage is the debut feature from writer-director Brian Muldowney and stars Darren Healy (Disco Pigs; Layer Cake) and Nora-Jane Noone (The Day Of The Triffids; The Descent; The Magdalene Sisters) in a gritty and brutal “Straw Dogs”-meets-“Taxi Driver” exploration of violence, obsession and revenge that has been described as “uncompromising… utterly compelling… [and] not for the faint-hearted”.

Dubliner Paul Graynor (Darren Healy) works as a freelance press photographer, visually documenting the day-to-day events of a vibrant city that, like many others, is becoming increasingly hostile and threatening. What Paul doesn’t realise is he is about to become front-page tabloid news himself. Walking home alone at night after a date with Michelle (Nora-Jane Noone), the care worker who is responsible for looking after his ailing father, Paul is accosted and violently assaulted by two youths.

Left unconscious by his attackers, he awakes several

Stephen Colbert in the Zeitgeist – November 22, 2010

Hey, kids! Time to get caught up on the news while Stephen and the rest of Team Colbert take a well-deserved break from the show, which I’m sure they all need very much to complete their recovery from Rally weekend. Our round-up today includes one final (I hope) Rally item, some comments from Robin Williams, an early look at some end-of-the-year sort of things, and word of a possible trip to Florida for Jon and Stephen in the spring. Settle back with a beverage, and enjoy!

Even us old folks know how to rally FlowTV, an academic journal on television and media culture, recently featured an article on the Sanity/Fear Rally that explored one aspect of the rally that virtually no one else even noticed: namely, that the audience wasn’t just the Tds and Tcr core demographic of 18-25-year-olds, but a broad range of ages, with

At&T's iPhone Boom, Nokia's Layoffs: A Tale of Two Mobile Titans

Proof that, despite the hammering Apple got for the flaws on its iPhone 4, it's still the smartphone of choice. At&T today released figures showing that 5.2 million iPhones were activated on its network in the last quarter: 400,000 units more than analysts had predicted. Translation: despite At&T's reputation (Disconnecting People?) its iPhone monopoly means it's drawing people away from other carriers.

Now, compare and contrast with Nokia. The Finnish phone giant has just posted its Q3 results and the company is looking better than many analysts expected, with profits of $451 million. Compare that to last year's losses of $1.2 billion, and new chief Stephen Elop can be pleased with his first six weeks in charge. There is, however, a downside, although it's not the investors who should be worried--shares soared by 8%-- but rather Nokia employees. Alongside the profits comes news that 1,800 jobs are to be lost.

Most of the job losses are,

Detroit — Thursday (September 2) was a night that the people of Detroit will never forget. Eminem, who hadn't performed in his hometown for years, co-headlined a show at Comerica Park with Jay-z. And if you ask Em's fans, it was more than worth the wait.

"It was pretty sweet," said Jon Bitz. "Eminem was out there, doing his thing. I thought it was pretty much the best concert I've ever been to."

Jay-z and Eminem pulled out all the stops at the show, which was chock-full of surprise guests. Local resident Juvenal Gutierrize said the re-emergence of Dr. Dre sent a number of ladies into a frenzy. "It went crazy when Dr. Dre came out. A bunch of girls lost their panties," said Gutierrize. "There was panties flying all over.

Atonement Director Joe Wright to Helm Live-Action The Little Mermaid

Director Joe Wright (The Soloist, Atonement) just wants to be a “part of that world.” Proof of this can be found in Variety’s report that the British filmmaker is currently attached to direct a live-action adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale The Little Mermaid.

Saoirse Ronan has joined Rachel Weisz and Ryan Gosling in Peter Jackson's adaptation of The Lovely Bones for DreamWorks.

Weisz and Gosling are playing the grieving parents in Bones, whose script was written by Jackson, Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh.

Carolynne Cunningham, Jackson, Walsh and Aimee Peyronnet are producing Bones, which begins filming in October in Pennsylvania and New Zealand. Executive producing will be Film 4's Tessa Ross alongside Ken Kamins and Jim Wilson.

Paramount Pictures is distributing.

Ronan -- whose first name is pronounced Seersha -- is a relative newcomer to Hollywood, with credits that include roles in the Irish television series Proof and The Clinic, though she is quickly moving to establish herself.
