The first official domestic trailer for "Paul" has made its way out via Apple. It basically has the same premise to the international trailers, but new one has more action scenes. It also clearly highlights the alien's ability to go invisible beside resurrecting a dead animal.

Slipknot's Frontman Corey Taylor Lost Virginity at 11


January 07, 2011 04:03:57 GMT


Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has revealed his secret shame - he lost his virginity to a babysitter at the age of 11. The rocker has confessed he became sexually active long before the legal age of consent of 16 in his native Iowa, and admits his first partner was "f*ked up" for wanting to sleep with a young boy.

And Taylor felt so ashamed after the experience that he avoided sex for two years. He tells Kerrang! magazine, "I am so f**king ashamed to say that I lost my virginity when I was 11 years old... It was with a very f**ked up and very giving babysitter, let's put it that way! I don't think I was very good at it that first time, though. After that I had a dry spell until I was 13. I was a bit better at it all by then, I think. I hope so anyway."

Johnny Depp: 'Pirates 4' Won't Be Confusing

January 07, 2011 03:54:56 GMT

Johnny Depp has vowed to bring a "freshness" to the next installment of the "Pirate of the Caribbean" franchise, after admitting the last two movies were confusing. The actor is reprising his famous role of swashbuckler Captain Jack Sparrow in the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides", which Depp insists features a less convoluted plot than its predecessors.

He tells Britain's Empire magazine, "The things with Pirates 4, I felt like we owed it to people... You know? Pirates 2 and 3 became quite... sub-plotty (sic). The mathematics of it. All these people went to see them two or three times just to figure out what was happening. This one is a little closer in tone to the first: more character driven... more subject driven. It has a freshness... less mathematics."

Tiger Woods Dropped From Game Cover and Golf Digest

January 07, 2011 03:51:39 GMT


Disgraced golfer Tiger Woods is still struggling to recover from his affairs scandal - he has been dropped from the cover of his own computer game. The sports hero faced a public backlash after news of his numerous infidelities hit the headlines in 2009. He subsequently split from wife Elin Nordegren and the pair's divorce was finalized last August.

He lost several lucrative endorsement contracts after the news broke, and following a stint in rehab, made a lacklustre return to golf. And Woods' situation hasn't improved since the start of 2011 - bosses at games giant Electronic Arts have decided to drop the star's image from the cover of "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters", replacing it with the iconic yellow flag at Augusta National Golf Club, according to Reuters. The game is due out in March.

If Anhalt chooses to have the operation, then the 93-year-old actress has only a 50% chance to survive considering her age and the power of the anesthesia. The docs said operating Gabor is "very risky" but it would add a few years of life if successful.
