Now, that’s how you want to celebrate an iconic show’s 50th anniversary. The son of Anthony Coburn, who wrote the very first episode of Doctor Who, claims he owns the rights to the Tardis, the iconic police call box used to travel through space and time. He claims his dad gave the BBC informal permission to use the idea but that ended with his father’s death in 1977.
The CW has ordered a full season of its new dramas — The Originals, , The Tomorrow People and Reign. That last one is a bit of a surprise, since Reign has lost a lot of The Vampire Diaries‘ viewers (apparently, its ratings are consistent with or without the Tvd lead-in and there are a lot of online viewers only The CW can measure).
Sure, the writing on The Tomorrow People has me rolling my eyes, but it also has a »

Spanish media giant Telefónica has unveiled global ambitions for production outfit Telefónica Studios.
The brand will handle all the projects produced by the company, which over the next three years will involve 25 high-quality feature films and several television series.
Telefónica Studios, launched during the San Sebastian Film Festival, stated its intention to establish itself as a significant player in the international market, a source of top-quality projects first in Europe and Latin America and later also in the English-speaking markets.
Currently, Telefónica Studios generates an output of between ten and 12 films a year.
In the last five years, three divisions of Telefónica have produced films and TV series: Telefé, Telefónica Producciones Media Networks and Telefónica España.

It’s been a mere two days since we last received new Oldboy pics, but images from Spike Lee‘s latest joint just keep pouring in. Collider‘s gotten their hands on four new ones, including a tease of one of the original film’s gooiest, grossest moments. A lot of this we’ve either seen before, like the hallway hammer fight (which was glimpsed in the trailer) or Josh Brolin‘s character holding a Chinese take-out carton (which presumably will take the place of the original’s dumplings). Brolin staring longingly into an octopus, however, is brand new stuff. Chan-wook Park’s original Oldboy infamously saw its lead actor consume a live octopus in a sushi bar. The octopus was both real and really alive (before being crammed unceremoniously down Min-sik Choi’s throat), and four octopi had to sacrifice their lives to nail the right take. There’s no word yet whether Brolin will committing »

James Franco is finishing a joke. "Natalie Wood…get it? What kind of wood doesn't float?" Everyone is very hung over this morning, but fortunately Franco sent his Maybach Landaulet and driver to whisk us to Chlamydia, the new Bobby Flay café in Chelsea, where we are drinking revivifying Bellinis and an assortment of other smart cocktails with Vito Schnabel, Slavoj Žižek, Natalie Portman (or possibly Keira Knightley, or Keira Knightley's body double), Sasha Grey, Heath Ledger, Michael Lee Nirenberg, Lena Dunham, Chloë Sevigny, and a Thai/Puerto Rican pre-op transsexual Franco introduces as "Pinball."
We are all sweating slightly and staring at Billy Cyborg passed out in a bowl of muesli. Inexplicably, the table is cluttered with untouched Chinese take-out containers and bottles of Evian, and there »
"The Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder has appeared in a series of photos from his photographer friend, Butch Hogan. In them, Somerhalder appears to be naked (although tastefully covered at all times) in a variety of everyday activities.
Well, they're kind of everyday activities. Some people might drink beer in a bathtub or sit around naked with Chinese take-out. It's kind of fun to believe that Somerhalder, who plays immortal bad boy Damon Salvatore on "The Vampire Diaries," would actually do these things.
The really important thing to remember here is that the actor is intensely attractive in all poses. Even sitting in dirty water while making angry faces doesn't detract from the beauty of a man like this.
It's unclear when exactly these photos were taken. Somerhalder posted on Twitter about a photo shoot with his friend back in 2012:
"Shooting pictures with my longest NY bro and mentor Butch Hogan. »
There are two things you should know about "The Kings of Summer," if you haven't already heard of it. First, back when it was called "Toy's House" at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, it was a huge crowd pleaser and one of the favorites of Park City.
Second, it stars some serious comedy talent that you might know from NBC's Thursday night line-up, including the awesome husband-wife duo of Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally from "Parks and Recreation" and Alison Brie from "Community."
In this exclusive clip from the film, which opens in theaters on May 31, Offerman and Brie play a father and daughter, who get some Chinese take-out. Much to the chagrin of Offerman's character, the wontons that come with the food are too big to eat, leading to a confrontation with the delivery man.
The preview gives you a quick look at the brand of humor working here and »

One must turn to the past to move forward.-- Akan proverb
We are sitting around a banquette at Nell’s, well sorted, and I am overwhelmed with a vague sadness all of a sudden -- the conversations around the table, a sonic penumbra: who has new tits (girls with names like Coriander and Chloe), who is in rehab (“she has a nasal addiction”), who fucked whom with what (don’t ask), and possibly, for the first time in recent memory, I no longer care what I am wearing (Comme des Garçons leather jacket over a vintage Led Zeppelin t-shirt, imitation of Imitation of Christ store-torn jeans, Prada driving shoes, with no socks, as my awesome new ankle tattoo -- neo-tribal -- is still too fresh and »
As if this break-up could not get more dramatic, Harry’s arch-nemesis Max is thinking about swooping in on a newly-single Taylor. Yikes!
The Wanted and One Direction‘s feud has been dragging on for months now, but it’s about to get personal! After Harry Styles and Taylor Swift‘s dramatic breakup on Jan. 4, Harry has been out partying with reality TV stars, while Taylor has been staying in eating Chinese take-out. But she may not be a sad single girl for long, as Harry’s arch-enemy Max George has said that he finds Taylor “attractive”. Are we about to have a love triangle more complicated than the one between George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Pattie Boyd?
Max has most recently been linked to Hollywood’s bad girl Lindsay Lohan, but after that brief romance fizzled out, it looks like Max has set his »
