Aaron Paul calls out Toys'r'Us and parents over 'Breaking Bad' ban hypocrisy

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you haven’t heard, a Florida mom recently went on a successful crusade to get Toys’R’Us to stop selling “Breaking Bad” action figures. According to her, she was incensed that a toy store would dare to sell toys that glorify meth “…alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters.” Ignoring the fact that if her kids know what “Breaking Bad” is, she has a whole 'nother set of issues she should be focused on, have you set foot in a Toys’R’Us in recent memory? Because I sure have. And if “Collectible Action Figures for Adults” having their own aisle is too close to the Barbies, maybe just don't let little Sally go down it? You know, since it also has gory “The Walking Dead” zombie busts and “Aliens” literally in the process of being shot apart. Aaron Paul agrees and he took to Twitter to share his disbelief at the situation. »

Wonder Woman movie: 5 female directors who could take up the mantle

1 hour ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We'll admit it – the prospect of Zack Snyder being the first director to bring a live-action Wonder Woman to the big screen does not necessarily fill us with confidence, given his track record with "empowering" female narratives like Sucker Punch. Heavy emphasis on those air quotes.

But this morning came news that Warner Bros and DC are on the hunt for a female director to spearhead Gal Gadot's standalone spinoff in 2017, which would unfortunately be a groundbreaking move in itself for the superhero movie industry.

While it's undeniably early days (we're a fair way off from even having a writer confirmed), speculation is fun, so below Digital Spy rounds up five potential contenders for the Wonder Woman job.

1. Kathryn Bigelow

While she's now best known for her rigorous and critically acclaimed work on war dramas The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow cut her teeth on genre movies. »

AMC is Buying a 49.9% Stake in BBC America

2 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Two great channels are about to get a lot closer. AMC, known for dramatic hits from Breaking Bad to Mad Men to The Walking Dead, just shelled out $200M for a 49.9% not-quite-majority stake in BBC America, broadcaster of Sherlock, Doctor Who and Orphan Black in the Us. Why the big move? I’ll let the executives explain: “A combined AMC Networks-BBC America channel group creates a powerful collection of networks that are among the most critically-acclaimed, with distinct dramas and other potent content that creates a deep connection with viewers,” said Josh Sapan, AMC Networks president and CEO, in a statement. “Our content rises to the top on many levels and is particularly well-suited to an era of on-demand viewing and expanding consumer choice.” And then from across the pond: “The U.S. is an important market for the BBC’s commercial activities. This partnership brings together the whole BBC and will… »

Aaron Paul Upset With Toys ‘R’ Us After Stores Pull Breaking Bad Toys From Shelves

3 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Well, if you thought the whole Breaking Bad toys ordeal was over when Toys ‘R’ Us pulled the action figures from their shelves, you were wrong. While Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston posted some slightly humorous responses to the event on Twitter, his co-star Aaron Paul isn’t joking when he expresses his angry feelings towards Toys ‘R’ Us. Paul took to Twitter after it was announced that Toys ‘R’ Us was removing the toys from their shelves, citing what he believed to be more harmful things that the store was still selling, such as Barbies and violent video games. He even pretended to bring President Obama into the conversation. Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie?

Aaron Paul Isn't Happy That Toys R Us Pulled Breaking Bad Toys

3 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Here's something you might not know: Toys R Us sells Breaking Bad figurines of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. Here's something you might have predicted: parents aren't happy about the idea of their kids playing with figurines of bald, meth-dealing science teachers. One Florida mother is so outraged that her petition against Toys R Us stocking the toys, which feature Walter carrying a gun and a bag of meth, has made headlines this week. In an amusing twist of events, Bryan Cranston entered the controversy by tweeting a response to the woman's complaint: "Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures." I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest — Bryan Cranston (@BryanCranston) October 20, 2014 Meanwhile, Aaron Paul had less of a jokey response when he learned that Toys R Us had actually pulled the Breaking Bad figurines in response to the petition.

Aaron Paul takes on Toys 'R' Us after 'Breaking Bad' toys are pulled

14 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

"" Looks like Toys "R" Us won't be on Aaron Paul's holiday shopping destinations.
