Taylor Kitsch: Jesus with Aliens

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 15, 2011 08:43:55 July 15, 2011 08:43:55

A teaser trailer for John Carter was released the other day featuring Taylor Kitsch very shirtless, very cut, very hot, and, um, not saying much. I suppose that’s the point. It does what a teaser is supposed to do, sure, and that is tease us until the proper trailer can tell us more about the story. Full Story

Hopefully. For the next couple of weeks anyway. Promotion on Crazy Stupid Love is beginning. The movie opens on July 29th. And I hope it’s good. I hope it’s really good. I hope it’s so good it ends up being bigger than Friends With Benefits. Because I am a petty goddamn bitch like that. Full Story

You know, if you’re going to make up a story, at least make sure you get the location and the date right. It’s a basic, basic requirement. Because isn’t it important to know when and where?

Then they hopped on a float plane to Blachford Lake where they toured the Dechinta Centre for Research and Learning, called a “bush university”, which offers northern aboriginal studies into the curriculum alongside conventional academic approach all on a wilderness campus. Full Story

Found them! The trash-talking Prince William shots. Some agencies are willing to go with them...conveniently after my last post – yay! As you can see, the Prince is throwing down with his wife in the dragon boat during their race. Word is they’re very competitive. And, well, it shows. Today in Yellowknife, they’re supposed to play street hockey. Full Story

A Royal Hug!

They’re hugging!!! Did you watch the Royal Dragon Boat Race? Prince William and Catherine competed against each other in a dragon boat race in PEI today after Will landed a rescue helicopter. As they were racing, they were kinda trash-talking each other. Not like civilian style, of course, but in the classiest way possible. Full Story
