Ang Lee quits Tv pilot
Ang Lee quits Tv pilot : Admits He Couldn’t Give ’100 Percent’. The Oscar-winning director Ang Lee has called it quits on directing the new FX Tyrant pilot in an announcement Tuesday.
Lee, who is serving on the Cannes Film Festival jury with fellow Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Steven Spielberg, who is the jury foreman, explained why he was no longer able to helm the television pilot. Tyrant would have been his first project since winning the Best Director Oscar for “Life of Pi” earlier this year.
In the statement Lee said, “It is one of the most brilliant ideas for a series that I’ve seen and one about which I was very excited. However, after spending over four years making and promoting Life of Pi, I have recently realized that I need some rest. Because I cannot give 100 [percent] to this exciting project at this time, I cannot allow myself to do anything that may affect the potential for this exciting new series.” Continue reading

‘We’re the Millers’, and You’re Going to Want to See This Trailer
‘We’re the Millers’ and You’re Going to Want to See This Trailer. Family road trips gone awry are a staple of comedy — just ask Chevy Chase, who starred in National Lampoon’s Vacation, or Ed Helms, who’s set to lead the sequel. But We’re the Millers mixes up the formula a bit by making its lead family not really a family.
Jason Sudeikis leads the cast as a drug dealer tasked with smuggling weed into the country. As part of an elaborate plan to escape the notice of the U.S. border patrol, he gets a stripper (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend be his wife, and brings on two very different kids (Will Poulter and Emma Roberts) to play their offspring. Rawson Thurber (Dodgeball) directs. Watch the red- and green-band versions of the trailer after the jump.
It should go without saying that the red-band trailer is NSFW. Unless your boss is cool with you looking at a spider-bitten pair of testicles at work, maybe skip this one for now and scroll down for the green-band version. Continue reading
Ghetto tours stopped
Ghetto tours stopped, denounced by tourism council. One Bronx tour company has been shut down after allegedly parading people through the borough on “Ghetto Gawking” trips.
The tour company is called Real Bronx Tours and took people to public housing, lines for food pantries, and even pointed out parks they said were good places to get pick-pocketed.
Bronx officials say they only found the borough was being exploited after they sent some undercover staffers to check it out first hand.
The website for “Real Bronx Tours” is gone, but the site used to tout a tour including “a ride through a real New York City GHETTO.”
“I was incredibly disturbed by what I saw,” said Olga Luz Tirado, the executive director of the Bronx Tourism Council. She says as soon as she saw the phrase an alarm went off. She expected to see sights like the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Gardens on Bronx tours, not public housing, so she sent a staffer to check it out. Continue reading
Jennifer Aniston stripper
Jennifer Aniston stripper, We’re the Millers Trailer Hits the Web. Trailerpalooza Week continues here at FilmDrunk with the Red Band trailer for We’re the Millers, which stars Jason Sudeikis as a small time weed dealer in way over his head. A much more powerful dealer (Ed Helms) forces Sudeikis to retrieve a shipment of weed from Mexico for him, so he thinks up a plan to pretend to be a normal American family driving into Mexico for a little vacation. And if this is supposed to take place in 2013, clearly, this film is in the fantasy genre. Continue reading
Ryan Gosling booed
Ryan Gosling booed at Cannes Film Festival. We love Ryan Gosling, you love Ryan Gosling, your mum loves Ryan Gosling… so why doesn’t Cannes Film Festival love Ryan Gosling?
Apparently, because his new film, Only God Forgives, is really, really violent, it got booed by critics during the festival screening. Er, don’t they know it’s practically illegal to boo the Gosling?
The film, by the director of Drive, stars RyRy as an American who runs a Bangkok boxing club (and a drug-dealing business, obvs). His mum (played by Kristen Scott Thomas) comes to Thailand when his brother is killed for murdering a prostitute, and that’s when the s**t hits the fan. Continue reading

Actor Chuck Norris Writes Ode to Tim Tebow. Chuck Norris has somewhat of a cult following and has become a pop culture icon thanks to — well actually I have absolutely no idea how it happened but I’m sure there’s a Chuck Norris joke out there that explains it. Out of the complete blue, Norris has re-emerged as an American folk hero and he’s reaching out to support anotherguy who’s been built up in the same, cult like way he has.
That’s right, Chuck Norris is a member of Tebow-mania. Continue reading
London Cleaver Attack
London Cleaver Attack, Reaction and latest developments. The British government’s emergency committee met Thursday after two attackers butchered a British soldier in a daylight attack in London that raised fears terrorism had returned to the capital.
Prime Minister David Cameron says there are strong indications it was an act of terrorism, and his top advisers will be examining the potential security implications of the attack, which took place near a military barracks in the Woolwich area of the city.
Police Thursday confirmed the dead man was a serving soldier and said his identity will not be released yet at his family’s request. They said a post-mortem examination will be conducted later Thursday.
One of the attackers went on video to explain the crime — shouting political statements, gesturing with bloodied hands and waving a meat cleaver. Police shot and wounded the unidentified assailants and took them into custody. Continue reading

Kevin Durant back tattoo misspelling
Ouch and ouch : Kevin Durant’s Full Back Tattoo Has Misspelling. Kevin Durant finally got around to finishing the massive back tattoo that he’s been adding to over the years, and he posted a picture of a the finished product to his Instagram page. Impressive! But, um, that’s not how you spell “mature.”
As friend of Deadspin Sarah Kogod points out, it sure looks like the “t” and the “u” are transposed in what is supposed to be “mature” at the start of the last visible line of the Bible verse adorning Durant’s back, instead spelling “mautre.” That’s just…oof. Continue reading
Cross-dressing spy ‘embarrassed’ UK. Lieutenant Colonel Dudley Clarke, a key figure in British intelligence in the Middle East in the Second World War, set alarm bells ringing in Whitehall when he was arrested in Madrid dressed as a woman.
Files released by the National Archives show that Lt Col Clarke – who was supposed to maintain a low profile, travelling under cover as a war correspondent for The Times – had stopped off in the Spanish capital on his way to Egypt in October 1941.
The embassy – where staff had been “particularly struck by his intimate knowledge of military secrets” – cabled London: “Last night he was arrested in a main street dressed, down to a brassiere, as a woman.” Continue reading

4 Britons who paid £54 for ice cream at a Rome bar. Consumer chiefs have ordered an investigation after four British tourists were left with a bitter taste in their mouth when they paid 64 euro (£50) for four ice cream cones.
Roger Bannister and his wife Wendy were with his brother Steve and his wife Joyce when they stopped off for a relaxing cone on their short break to the Italian capital of Rome.
The city is well known for its rip-off taxi drivers, bars and cafes, where customers are often served food at inflated prices as they know many visitors, particularly Britons, are too embarrassed to complain. Continue reading

A source told Mail Online: “Angie is keen on a wedding and the kids are clamouring for a marriage and keep asking Brad and Angie when it’s happening.

Artist creates banana-shaped Pool Table
Artist creates banana-shaped Pool Table. There are some weird-shaped pool tables out there that makes me vomit. But this one is way too weird for me. And I’m in shock.
Whole point of a pool table is to make to playable. Well, this table is just plain crazy. It’s a banana. How do we suppose to play on this thing? Apparently the creator Cléon Daniel has went through some trouble to make this thing. At one time he even got “stuck in the snow with half a giant banana in the car”. I’m not sure what happened there and I think it’s better not to talk about it.
