'Justice League' Coming Back to Life?


August 04, 2008 09:36:02 GMT


After months of going in and out of shelves, "Justice League Mortal" has been reported to be put on the back burner last April. Contrary to that, however, a new report concerning the movie about a group of superheroes from the DC Comics' universe suggested that the comic book adaptation maybe back on.

On the speculation, Moviehole.net noted that in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, director George Miller unveiled the movie was only stalled but it is still very much alive. Hinting further on the project, the helmer insisted that the film just won't be shot in Australia like what has been planned previously due to the tax revenue's problem. Nevertheless, there are no confirmation on the truth of this report yet.

Rihanna in the Hot Tub with Chris Brown, Snapped Popping His Pimple


August 04, 2008 09:27:33 GMT


Are they or aren't they? Never admitting that they indeed are dating despite the many persistent rumors, it seems that Rihanna and Chris Brown just let their public display of affection (PDA) do the talking. Much contrary to their denial of romance rumors, both recording artists were seen getting very close to one another during an outing in Ocean City, Maryland this weekend.

Adding evidence to their love relationship, Rihanna and Chris were snapped enjoying each other's companion while they were down in a hot tub. The Barbadian singer at one point was even photographed popping his pimple.

Radiohead's 'In Rainbow' Suffers From Illegal Download


August 04, 2008 09:08:01 GMT


Some of Radiohead's fans chose to download their latest album "In Rainbow" from illegal sources rather than from their official website. Commenting on the news, a researcher from P2P monitor Big Champagne and U.K.'s MCPS-PRS royalty collector said, "[The number] far exceeds what outsiders have reported as the estimated download total from the bands official website, regardless of whether those downloaders paid or not."

The band have actually released a policy called as honesty box which allows their fans to pay the album as much as they thought the album was worth. However, the staggering number of illegal download with a total of 2.3 million copies since it has been released in October 2007, has proven that the scheme set by the band failed to stop people from continuing their pirate act.

'Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor' No Match for 'Dark Knight'

August 04, 2008 05:27:25 GMT


Predicted to be the one summer movie that could end "The Dark Knight"'s reign at the box office, "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" fell short on the materialization of the forecast. Screened in 3,760 theaters across the country, the Rob Cohen-directed movie debuted a spot behind the reigning champion "Batman Begins" sequel.

Despite losing the coveted #1 place on the three-days weekend box office, this Brendan Fraser-starring action fantasy shows its competitive side raking in an impressive $40.5 million, roughly around two millions less than "Dark Knight" which earned $42.7 million on its third weekend. Still, if compared to the last two "Mummy" movies, the new installment can be considered to be less successful, especially both of the first two secured the #1 spot and collected more on their opening debuts, "The Mummy" with $43.4 million and "The Mummy Returns" with $68.1 million.
