    There was much fanboy rejoicing when is was learned that Lawrence Kasdan was on board to write a new ‘Star Wars’ spin-off movie and consult on ‘Star Wars Episode 7.’ After all, this is the man who wrote ‘The Empire Strikes Back,’ a movie that isn’t just the best ‘Star Wars’ movie, but one of the best science fiction movies ever made. Although the full details of whatever Kasdan is working on (a Yoda movie? Young Han Solo?) are buried in an underground bunker somewhere, he recently spoke about his involvement in the new films.

    The LA Times caught up with the prolific Kasdan (who also wrote classics like ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and ‘Body Heat’) and got him to share his basic vision for his top secret project. His words should be music to the ears of ‘Star Wars’ fans everywhere:

    “I’m trying to start fresh…There are certain pleasures that we think the saga can bring to people that they’ve been missing, and we’re hoping to bring them that, and at the same time, have them feel that it’s all new.”

    That sounds like a not-so-quiet acknowledgment that the prequel trilogy was lacking and that everyone is aware of it. Knowing what didn’t work in episodes one, two and three is just as important as knowing what worked in the original trilogy if the new films are going to be up to par. Still, Kasdan mentions that it was ‘Star Wars’ creator and figure of great geek controversy George Lucas who initially brought him on board the new films:

    “George sort of brought me into this part of it, and he’s stepping back from the company…He’s sort of given his blessing to everybody, and he’ll be there if you need him. I think everyone’s interested to see where this can go. It’s been some very different places over 30 years…I think with J.J., we’ll get something entirely new.”

    Finally, Kasdan got into the nitty gritty of why the first three ‘Star Wars’ films are so beloved and why ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ is valued above all others. It really feels like his corner of the future ‘Star Wars’ universe is in good hands:

    “The ones I worked on were a long time ago, and they had a slightly different feeling than the ones that followed…The first three, ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Empire’ and ‘Return of the Jedi’ are all sort of more about people than the ones that followed. ‘Empire’ appeals to people, I think, because it’s the second act of a three-act play, and everything sort of goes to hell during the movie. And when you leave, everyone is in trouble, and that is the best part of the story to write. And people responded to it. Irvin Kershner was a completely different kind of director than George, so the movie’s much darker than the first ‘Star Wars.’ It’s more edgy.”

  • 02/10/13--15:24: William Shatner vs. Reddit

  • Some celebrities leave Reddit shortly after they collect easy publicity , but Star Trek's William Shatner isn't afraid to stick around and ruffle some feathers. An active user on the site since his first "Ask Me Anything" session in January, Shatner has issued some stern comments about the site's tolerance of hateful or racist users, writing that he is "appalled by some of the immature, horrifically racist, sexist, homophobic, ethnic, etc... posts that are just ignored here." Shatner questions Reddit's hands-off approach, writing that "the fact that someone could come here, debase and degrade people based on race, religion, ethnicity or sexual preference because 'they have a right' to do so without worry of any kind of moderation is sending the wrong message."

    That attitude may seem to fly in the face of free speech — a value Reddit (mostly) supports — but Shatner's unimpressed when it comes to hate speech. In response to a comment goading him to become president of the United States ("because apparently you know best," the commenter wrote), Shatner replied: "first of all, I'm Canadian. Second of all Reddit is worldwide. So 'First Amendment' means nothing online."

    While it's not the first time Reddit's model has been criticized, Shatner's comments highlight the site's ongoing struggle to gain mainstream credibility while embracing offensive or undesirable content. Shatner wrote that "Reddit has been the first 'mainstream' site that I have been to that actually appears to allow racists and other hate mongers to group, congregate, incite and spread their hatred." While some users noted Reddit's voting system, which allows users to promote or suppress content to their liking, Shatner was unconvinced about its efficacy: "you obviously agree with me that there are 'shameful comments' on Reddit that users can downvote and hide," he writes in a response to another user, "but they are still here at the end of the day as are the accounts that make them. Do you believe that the folks who don these cyber masks to post hatred will stop making them because they get downvoted?"

    Reddit only has a few official rules, including no spam, no personal information, no cheating the system, and no suggestive or sexual content featuring minors. The site has a much broader set of values, called Reddiquette, that consists of suggestions about how to behave -- but it's completely up to individual community moderators to create and enforce rules. Shatner, perhaps like many others who stumble on the site, doesn't seem to appreciate the difference between Reddiquette and the community's official rules. "All I am asking is why there are rules if they are not enforced," Shatner writes. "If censoring or disabling accounts is not an outcome of breaking the rules, then what exactly is?" (Of course, users do get banned from the site and from individual subreddits, but those decisions are often left to volunteer community moderators with nearly-unlimited power.) "I do not pretend to know where the managers of Reddit wish to go with this site," Shatner writes, "but embracing that kind of culture I feel is counterproductive to where this world is heading."

    As a member of polite society, Shatner may not fully understand the people he's dealing with -- but that doesn't mean he can't change hearts and minds. The "ShitRedditSays" (SRS) community — one of the site's most controversial subreddits, often providing a running satirical commentary on Reddit's culture — honored Shatner by placing his face on its banner. In response, Shatner asked a Reddit user to act as a digital courier: "could I ask that you send a message over to whomever runs SRS? I would like the banner removed. I do not feel it's appropriate and I am not a member there." The banner was removed shortly after Shatner's request.

    Lil Wayne was in the crowd for today's Miami Heat/Los Angeles Lakers game -- we say WAS because the rapper claims he got kicked out for rooting for the wrong team!

    Wayne -- a big hoops fan -- tweeted a short time ago that he got tossed from AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami because he was rooting for the Lakers. When in Rome ...

    Weezy is no stranger to beefing with NBA teams -- during last year's playoffs he bitched about not being allowed into an Oklahoma City Thunder game ... which the team says was because he just didn't have a ticket.

    So I'm @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would u believe they got police 2 make me leave?! Wow! F#€k da Heat

    — Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) February 10, 2013

    3:45 PM PT -- A rep for the Miami Heat tells TMZ, "In response to your inquiry, please note that Lil Wayne was not ejected from the building. He chose to leave."

    It was recently revealed that both Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen were in talks to join Aaron Johnson in Legendary Pictures' Godzilla remake. Well, talking at tonight's BAFTA awards, the young actress (who has received praise for roles in the likes of Liberal Arts and Martha Marcy May Marlene) confirmed that she will soon begin work on the Gareth Edwards helmed project. "I'm about to film Godzilla in the Spring so that's the next thing I'm working on!" When asked about making the transition from dramas to a big budget blockbuster, Olsen jokingly added: "Well, Godzilla is actually going to be a very heavy drama! It's definitely going to be a very different take on the past Godzilla's..." Godzilla is currently set for release on May 16th, 2014 in 3D.

    After years of doing tough-girl routines like kickboxing and martial arts, Lucy Liu finally discovered the secret to shedding the last five pounds. All it took was the right workout and a little help from her friends. By Patty Adams Martinez

    Lucy Liu is known for kicking butt in such flicks as Charlie's Angels and Kill Bill. But offscreen she's more likely to be getting her butt kicked -- by her Pilates instructor.

    "Pilates introduced me to muscles I never even knew I had," says Lucy, who stars as Dr. Watson on the hit CBS show Elementary. "Soon I started to feel longer and leaner. Ten years of Pilates has really changed my body for the better."

    In fact, at 44 the actress says she is fitter and healthier than ever. "I'm smarter, stronger, and more confident than I was in my twenties," Lucy says over lentil soup at ABC Kitchen in New York City. "I know who I am now, and I'm more accepting of myself." Read on to find out how she got to her happy place -- and how you can too.

    You always play fierce female characters. What's the toughest training you've done?

    Charlie's Angels, because it was eight hours a day, five days a week. I thought I was fairly fit when I started, but I wasn't. The kind of moves we were doing with all the kicking -- oh my god! I couldn't even lift my legs afterward.

    You work 16-hour days shooting Elementary. How do you fit in exercise?

    I don't always, but I can do Pilates at home with a ball and I have a treadmill. I run while watching Downton Abbey, and I increase the speed a little at a time, decrease it, and then raise it again. Each time, I say, "Just another 0.2 mile." I've found that running is the fastest way to lose weight.

    Peeta and Katniss may have some onscreen romantic tension in The Hunger Games, but in real, the pair of besties.

    While at DirecTV's Seventh Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl in New Orleans, Life & Style chatted with Josh Hutcherson, who dished on his pal Jennifer Lawrence and her tough break up with Nicholas Hoult.

    "Me and really all of Jennifer's friends have been there for her," he tells Life & Style. "Jennifer's great. Everything's happening for her with the awards and everything. I couldn't be more proud of her."

    As Life & Style reported, Jennifer and Nicholas broke up in January after dating two years.

    "They're young and grew apart," the 22-year-old actress' pal tells Life & Style. "But they remain friends."

    So what about a future love interest? "It's got to be someone amazing because she's amazing," Josh shares.

    Speaking of romance, the 20-year-old actor even reavealed his philosophy on love to Life & Style.

    "I think it’s a thing that happens with two people and it’s like, you love them for loving you and vice versa," Josh, who will star in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with Jennifer in November, says. "It has to be a very mutual kind of [thing]. It can’t be like weighted to one side or the other. It has to be a very mutual exchange."

    Swoon. We love a guy who's in touch with his feelings.

    Emilia Clarke at Altuzarra Fall 2013



    A brunette Emilia Clarke, who plays a platinum-haired queen on HBO's "Game of Thrones," threw at least one photogrpaher at the front row of Altuzarra's runway show on Saturday night. "You're usually a blond in the show, aren't you?" the photog asked. "Yeah," the actress said through a camera-ready smile as the flashes popped around her. It was the first fashion week appearance for Clarke, who is in rehearsals for "Breakfast at Tiffany's" on Broadway and sounded smitten with New York, blizzard and all. "New York as a city is just phenomenal and I've fallen head over heels in love with it," she said. "I braved the heels."

    Marques Houston is so afraid his beef with Raz B could turn dangerous, that he obtained a temporary restraining order against his former friend.

    Houston and Raz B (real name De'Mario Thornton) have been feuding since the middle of last year. According to docs filed by Houston last month, the feud began when Raz posted a video online accusing Houston of molesting him when he was a child (a claim Houston has denied).

    In the docs, Houston claims the video "has caused me emotional distress and caused me to fear he will be violent toward myself and others." Houston claims that Raz also spoken many times about killing people as well as killing himself.

    Houston also claims in the docs that Raz (famous from his days in the band B2K) has threatened him specifically on the Internet several times and this has made him "fear that my life, my girlfriend's life and the lives of my family and friends are in danger."

    A judge granted the temporary restraining order last month, requiring Raz to at least 100 yards away from Houston.

    A hearing to make the order permanent is scheduled to go down tomorrow.

    The best interviews either confirm something that viewers have always hoped to be true or surprises them utterly; Emmanuelle Riva does both. Of course she is too tired to attend the BAFTAs; of course she is happiest when she is working. She is everything we want an 85-year-old Frenchwoman in the middle of an unexpected career resurgence and more.



    She is thrilled at her good fortune:

    "This film is such a wonderful, marvellous, extraordinary gift. I cannot tell you how happy I am. Completely happy," Riva says. "The whole thing is like a fairytale. Everybody knows there are very few roles for older actresses. Almost none, in fact. And that is what makes all this so exceptional."

    But she is also not coming to your party:

    "I cannot possibly come to London. How can I? I have to go to the Césars and the Oscars and already I am so, so tired and so, so harassed," she says with all the good grace she can muster."For five months people have not left me alone. I have done 15 interviews a day, sometimes. After the Oscars I intend to rest and I can tell you that I cannot wait until it is after the Oscars."

    She can see right through your leading questions:

    "What do you mean do I prefer being called Madame or Mademoiselle? Are you trying to find out if I am married? If so I can tell you that I have never wanted to be married and you can call me Mademoiselle or Madame as you wish. Perhaps at my age Madame has more charm, it's more dignified. But I could call myself Mademoiselle."

    She knows what is like to be forgotten, to go without work:

    "Because I turned down offers, they stopped calling. They forgot me. You make an empty space and the empty space comes to you."

    And when she works, she works:

    I'm very rigorous and demanding toward myself. There's a sense of confidence and loyalty that arises from a sense of precision and those circumstances. There's an intensity on set, for me it's so important, this passion, because I'm only happy when I'm passionate about the work that I'm involved in.

    She will not repeat herself and she will not be sentimental:

    "I've never wanted to be a star, never." She added:"I tried to do things that pleased me, and I needed to do various things. It is dreadful to see actors reproducing the same image constantly...My instructions were ‘no sentimentalism,' " she said. "From that moment on, I understood everything."

    She has lived, damn you:

    "I wanted to live another life and many lives at once," she said. "Acting makes you live plenty of lives."

    Hoping she rips through all the other nominees to get that damn Oscar. She deserves it. However she has to get past Weinstein...

    She is known for her quirky personality and style to match.

    And it seems that as well as dressing herself in cute outfits, Zooey Deschanel likes to style her pet dogs.

    The pooch duo looked absolutely adorable as they wore winter coats over their fur for walkies with their famous owner on Sunday.

    One of the pups was dapper in a blue and white tartan ensemble, while the other was dressed in a trendy oxblood coat.

    Meanwhile Zooey, 33, made sure she wrapped up warm so that she wasn’t feeling the chill during the leisurely stroll around Los Angeles.

    The New Girl star wore a navy hooded and padded gilet over a purple top, along with skinny jeans tucked into black Ugg boots.

    If that wasn’t enough insulation the fresh-faced actress and singer had a cream scarf wrapped around her neck, completing her look with amber-lensed sunglasses.

    Zooey appeared to be listening to music as she walked with headphones in her ears, toting the dogs on a colourful double leash.

    A new action-packed trailer for Jack The Giant Slayer has been released – you can watch the trail by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking.

    The film, helmed by X-Men director Bryan Singer, is an action-packed, fantasy adventure based on the Jack And The Giant Beanstalk tale and stars Skins' Nicholas Hoult in the titular role.

    The movie sees Jack, along with an army of knights led by Ewan McGregor's character, journey up a beanstalk to rescue a Princess – played by Eleanor Tomlinson – who has been held captive by giants in a faraway land.

    In this latest trailer, soundtracked by Deftones, the Giants are causing carnage when they arrive on earth to do battle with the humans. From flaming trees and an axe-wielding army, the trail focuses more on the pulse-quickening action of the movie rather than the whimsical comedy of previous trailers.

    The fantasy flick, which was re-named after previously being titled Jack The Giant Killer, also stars Ian McShane, Warwick Davis, Eddie Marsan, Ewen Bremner, Billy Nighy and is narrated by Ian McKellen. It hits UK cinemas on March 22.
