What is this, a kimono pantsuit? I don’t get it. How does one get in and out of this garment? It seems like Rihanna has been getting into Asian-inspired styling in a big way — she wore a Pucci kimono pajama set to another premiere of “Battleship” just last week. On the bright side, this is the best hair and makeup I’ve ever seen on the pop star. Props! [photo via Just Jared]

You knew this day would come … Rihanna is making the move from music to feature films.
But unlike her fellow pop princesses Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus, RiRi isn’t going the sappy, coming-of-age movie route. Instead, Rihanna is playing a non-nonsense naval crewman named Raikes in the upcoming ”Battleship” movie. Read more…
If you are a devoted fan of “Friday Night Lights” like I am, you probably have a Pavlovian response—either drooling or sweating—when you hear the name Taylor Kitsch, aka Tim Riggins. I’m sorry, but it just shouldn’t be legal for a dude to be that hot. Couple his inherent hotness with the fact that he plays a bad boy football player with a heart of gold and you’ve got the makings of a category five libidinal hurricane. All this time I’ve been thinking I was kind of pervy for thinking a high school boy was so hot. But as it turns out, he is 29! That’s 11 years more than legal. Even though I’m sad that he’s graduating from “FNL” (this is his last season), we haven’t seen the last of his six-pack. He has a few films in the works, but there’s one that sounds like a hit. Word is that Taylor just landed a role as a “wildly spirited” Naval commander in the film adaption of our favorite childhood board game, Battleship. His character, Alex Hopper, will battle the open seas and save the world when aliens invade earth. I hope by “wildly spirited” they mean wet and naked. [NY Post] Keep reading »
Back in the third grade, my best friend Jess and I were obsessed with the movie “Clue.” We watched the video every day after school and knew all three endings backwards and forwards, mostly because we were obsessed with Tim Curry and Michael McKean. Turns out that Jess and I weren’t the only fanatics—the movie is being remade by none other than Gore Verbinski, the CGI genius who turned a corny theme park attraction into the megazillion dollar “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. Will Colonel Mustard, with a pipe, in the billiard room, be our new Jack Sparrow? Yes please!
We love our “Clue,” but the game is pretty unique: it’s already plot-oriented, it has glam characters (Miss Scarlett! Mr. Plum!), and a creepy mansion setting. But we’re a little dubious about these other board games that are being turned into movies. Seriously—flicks based on Monopoly, Candy Land, Battleship, and Ouija? Keep reading »
