Leprechauns, ruined birthdays, and home school taunting.
Romantic comedy anthologies are becoming rather popular these days, particularly ones that revolve around a particular holiday, but comedy anthologies are a hard thing to come by — 2007's The Ten comes to mind as does the classic Kentucky Fried Movie — but coming early next year is Movie 43, which stars almost the entirety of Hollywood and has a director list almost as long. In fact, it's hard to believe there are some actors and directors that aren't associated with Movie 43.
Revealed in just the red band trailer alone, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris share a romantic(?) moment; Halle Berry ruins a blind kid's birthday; Terrence Howard reminds a basketball team of the advantage they have; Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts decide to give their home-schooled son an authentic high school experience; Emma Stone checks in on Kieran Culkin's STD; and Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville capture a leprechaun (Gerard Butler). That's not all, of course, Chloe Grace Moretz, Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet also appear in the very NSFW trailer, which does its very best to be as outrageous and offensive as possible.movie trailers and more

On Friday evening, Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snooki, tweeted that she was "a balloon ready to pop," and early Sunday morning she popped. At 3 a.m. Sunday Snooki and her fiance, Jionni LaValle, welcomed 6-pound 5-ounce baby boy Lorenzo "Enzo" Dominic LaValle into the world. A rep for Snooks made the announcement by telling MTV that "the world just got another Guido" and that mama, baby and dad were all doing great. Both parents took to Twitter with their new baby excitement with Snooki tweeting "HE'S MY WORLD!" and "being a mom is an amazing feeling." Meanwhile, new daddy Jionni LaValle compared the birth of his son to hanging out with his friends, tweeting "ill never forget old high school memories or the vacations I been on with my boys, I will also never forget 8/26/12 the day my son was born!" Going on vacation and welcoming your firstborn to the world are pretty comparable, right?
After Lance Armstrong decided to stop fighting the US Anti-Doping Agency's charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs, he was stripped of his Tour de France titles, but he has not been dropped by his sponsors. Nike, Anheuser-Busch, and Oakley sunglasses have all said they will stand by Armstrong despite the controversy. Other sponsors such as Trek Bicycle Corp, and 24-Hour Fitness have yet to make a decision and are still monitoring the situation. Experts believe that his work in raising money for cancer research, including the $470 million that Livestrong has made, will help to diminish the impact of the doping allegations on Armstrong's image and career. The Lance Armstrong Foundation actually reported a spike in donations on Friday, following the news of the USADA's decision, and said they had seen a huge outpouring of support for the disgraced athlete.

The Jamie Linden-scripted romantic drama Dear John was a big hit for Channing Tatum when it debuted in 2010, actually knocking Avatar off of the #1 spot at the box office after seven weeks of dominance. It's no wonder then that Tatum jumped at the chance to re-team with Linden when the screenwriter decided to direct his next screenplay himself. The result is the romantic drama 10 Years (formerly Ten Year), which is about a group of friends who reunite at their ten-year class reunion and realize that they still haven't quite grown up. Here's the synopsis:

Jake (Tatum) is deeply in love with his girlfriend and ready to propose — until he runs into his high school flame (Rosario Dawson) for the first time in years. Jake's friend Cully (Chris Pratt) married his cheerleader girlfriend, and has been looking forward to the reunion so he can finally apologize to all the classmates he bullied in high school. However, after a few too many drinks, the jock-turned-family man ends up reverting back to his old ways instead. Meanwhile, longtime rivals Marty (Justin Long) and A.J (Max Minghella) spend the night picking up right where they left off, vying to impress the hottest girl in class. The famous one of the group, Reeves (Oscar Isaac) is now a rock star, but is still too shy to talk to his high school crush.

Carrie Underwood's fourth album, Blown Away, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. This is the third straight first-place debut album for the American Idol alum. Releasing an album just as Idol is ramping up for its finale is looking like an awfully good marketing strategy for the country singer. Posted 05.10.12 by Mandy
Columbia Pictures has released four new preview clips from Bennett Miller's (Capote) new sports biopic. Based on the 2003 non-fiction bestseller Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game by Michael Lewis, the movie tells the true story of Billy Beane (played by Brad Pitt), a former professional baseball player who became the general manager of the Oakland Athletics and turned it into a winning team by taking a non-traditional approach to scouting players and fielding a team for a fraction of the cost of what larger market teams were spending at the time.
Moneyball had its North American debut at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday and has so far earned an 86% approval rating among critics, with one reviewer calling it "nirvana" for baseball fans and "a smart, damned entertaining time" for "everyone else." It doesn't open in theaters until Sept. 23rd, but you can get a sense of what the movie is about in this collection of new clips and, more importantly, see Brad Pitt play 'hard ball' as Billy Beane.
