It maybe the most expensive auction ever. Yes it could be, as movie legend Marlon Brando's personal script from the 1972 movie "The Godfather" sold for a staggering $312,800 at a New York auction on Thursday, becoming the highest ever paid for a film manuscript.

The high-profile auction at Christie's also included Mario Puzo's letter asking Brando to play gangster Don Corleone in the film, which has been sold for $132,000. Also there was the actor telegram to Marilyn Monroe, which sold for $36,000, while a photograph of the film icon and actress Rita Moreno in the 1968 movie "The Night Of The Following Day" fetched $48,000.

Jolie: "I am not pregnant."

July 05, 2005 03:36:54 GMT

She's been photographed shopping for baby items with her adopted son Maddox and Brad Pitt, who she's been romantically linked to in recent days. Reinforcing the report, an onlooker at London's Harrods department store told Britain's newspaper The Sun, "Angelina spent the best part of two hours looking around the baby wear department. She was wearing a long black coat as if she was trying to hide her body from prying eyes. She kept touching her midriff and holding her stomach as if she was comforting herself. She spent a lot of time looking at cots and spent a small fortune on clothes for newborn babies."

Such evidences provoke rumors saying that Angelina Jolie is pregnant. In hearing this, the Hollywood star emphatically told journalists at the Eden Project's Calling Africa concert, "I am not pregnant."

Fresh New Album of Franz Ferdinand

July 05, 2005 03:08:08 GMT

Lead singer Alex Kapranos said his band Franz Ferdinand is close to release the track list for its second album, which is set for an October 4th release. The new album, which Kapranos said will not have a title, will be distinguishable from its 2004 predecessor only by its color scheme and will be released via Epic Records.

"We still want to make people dance, but we didn't want to repeat the same beats," that's what Kapranos felt about the album. Motivated with such eagerness, the album will entertain fans with such hits, as "Do You Want To?," "Walk Away," "Turn It On," "I'm Your Villain," "Evil and a Heathen," "This Boy," "Well, That Was Easy," and "You Could Have It So Much Better."

He died already, yet does his music. Approvingly, death doesn't prevent late rapper Tupac Shakur to lead the U.K. pop singles chart for a second week on Sunday with his "Ghetto Gospel." The track, which actually is his first U.K. No. 1 and featuring a sample of Elton John's 1971 tune "Indian Summer," was released almost nine years after he died in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.

Came in at No. 2 was the "Crazy Chick" Charlotte Church, whose upcoming album "Tissues and Issues" marks his first move away from classical and easy listening recordings. Meanwhile, the week's only other new entry in the top 10 was American boy band Backstreet Boys, which "Incomplete" debuted at No. 8.
