Liam Hemsworth already feeling married to Miley Cyrus

HollywoodNews.com: Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus may only be newly engaged, but it seems that he already feels married to his young bride-to-be.
Hemsworth was recently caught saying that the two are now married, which he then quickly corrected, states UsMagazine.com. Hemsworth was talking about his break into Hollywood with the film ‘The Last Song’ when he slipped up.
“I was fortunate enough to get called back in to read with my now-fiancée, who I recently got engaged to. And we read together and fell in love and now we’re married … Well, not married yet, but we will be,” the ‘Hunger Games’ star corrected.
The two got engaged almost a month ago but are expected to not be rushing the wedding.
Do you think they will marry quickly?

“Twilight” star arrested on outstanding warrant

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Actor Kiowa Gordon, who played wolfpack member Embry Call in “Eclipse,” “New Moon,” and who will reprise the role in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” was arrested in Mesa, AZ for failure to appear in court in relation to an earlier charge. The actor pled guilty earlier this year to possession and use of drug paraphernalia and giving liquor to a minor/underage consumption in a Scottsdale court; the original charge also involved a DUI.
Records from the arresting Sherriff’s department linked Gordon to two other cases involving drugs and drug paraphernalia. At the time of his arrest, the actor was held on $1,000 bond.

Harry Potter 7.2 Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide

HollywoodNews.com: Meanwhile, a little farther down the chart, the much-anticipated and raved-about by geek critics Attack of the Block was released on just eight screens by Screen Gems, with respectable results. The film earned $130,000 for a solid $16,307 per-screen average. Of course, this means little in terms of the film’s mainstream play ability, and I do not yet know the expansion plans for the British alien invasion import. But every movie geek on my Twitter feed has been begging everyone else to see this one.
As for me, I’m hoping that it goes to the much closer Arclight Sherman Oaks next weekend (as opposed to the much farther Arclight Hollywood). I’m also a little nervous about those allegedly thick British accents, as I’m a little hard of hearing and am debating on waiting for the subtitled-DVD. But for those unafraid of accents, everyone I know seems to have really enjoyed this one. Also debuting in limited release was The Devil’s Double ($95,000 on five screens) and The Guard ($80,000 on four screens).
In bad news for good movies, Captain America dropped a rather hefty 61% in its second weekend, almost as much as the much-loathed Green Lantern (-66%). The terrific comic book adventure grossed $24.9 million in its second weekend and finished its tenth day with $116 million, or $3 million behind Thor’s respective ten day gross of $119 million. To be fair, Captain America had stronger weekdays than Thor, as the Asgard fable opened in early May. But the Steve Rogers pic had a second weekend of nearly $10 million less, and a larger second weekend drop than Thor (-47%) and X-Men: First Class (-54%).
It does mean that the film will likely end up closer to Kung Fu Panda 2′s current $161 million total than Thor’s current $180 million total. In better news for good movies, the final Harry Potter film crossed two very notable landmarks this weekend. On Sunday, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II crossed $1 billion worldwide, tying Avatar as the fastest film to reach said milestone. It also film sits at $318 million in domestic grosses as of today, thus surpassing Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone as the biggest-grossing Harry Potter film in domestic sales as well.

The rush to cast young actresses as fairy tale princesses

HollywoodNews.com: There were a few interesting articles written over the last several months about the unusual amount of ass-kicking (or at least take-charge) young female roles being written into mainstream cinema. Whether it was Chloe Moretz in Kick-Ass, Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit, Jennifer Lawrence in Winter’s Bone, or Saoirse Ronan in Hanna, the last 18 months or so has seen a mini-wave of genre pictures where young females were basically the lead characters (or in the case of Kick-Ass the star attraction), ‘strong independent character’ (god, I hate that cliche) who not only could fend for themselves but were not defined in any way, shape, or form by their male love interest (not a one of them had a boyfriend).
Yes, I would include Sucker Punch in this category, as it was basically a satiric examination of whether ass-kicking young women in pop culture were automatically sexualized by virtue of the salacious nature of such imagery (stop whining and read THIS). The somewhat negative undercurrent of this trend is that these actresses were generally under 18, often barely passed puberty. Point being, what would become of these actresses once they reached adulthood? If recent developments are any indication, Hollywood has a genuine desire to roll back the progress clock and turn these actresses into fairy tale princesses.
At the moment, we now have two competing variations on Snow White set to be released in the next year. One, pictured above, will star Lily Collins (from The Blind Side and soon to be seen as Taylor Lautner’s token girlfriend in Abduction) as the titular princess, while the other will star Kristen Stewart as the ‘fairest of them all’. Both are claiming to be somewhat revisionist, and for the moment I shall take them at their word.
But no matter how much armor and battle-axes you give Snow White, you’re still hiring one of our more talented actresses (say what you will about Twilight, but she absolutely sells Bella Swann and shines in the likes of Adventureland) to play a woman whose primary job is to run away from an evil witch, play house with a bunch of asexual dwarves, then finally bite a poison apple and await rescue from a theoretical Prince Charming. Of course, you could argue that Ms. Collins isn’t one of the ‘great actresses of our time’ yet. [...]

“Harry Potter” world premiere forecast calls for rain

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Mother Nature must not be a “Harry Potter” fan. It seems that every time the stars of the series come out for a red-carpet premiere in London, the skies open up.
This Thursday, July 7, will be the last London premiere for a “Potter” film. Can you guess what the forecast calls for?
That’s right. The Telegraph says rain is being predicted for the night of the festivities. The same conditions welcomed the stars in 2009 and 2007.
Tom Felton, who plays Draco in the films, said he wouldn’t want it any other way.
”I can imagine there will be a few showers and rain on the night. It wouldn’t be right if it wasn’t,” he told ITV1′s Daybreak.
We will be covering the world premiere from London on Thursday, so keep it here for details as they emerge. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” opens in the States on July 15.

Spencer Pratt going mad over Virgin Mobile commercial

HollywoodNews.com: Spencer Pratt is upset with Virgin Mobile because he thinks their latest commercial is a complete rip-off.
Virgin Mobile’s new commercial does a spoof on celebrity coupling and creates “Sparah.” However, Pratt thinks the commercial is using his likeness, along with Heidi Montag’s, as they are known as “Speidi,” states TMZ.
The former ‘Hills’ star claims they are both upset about the copying and think that Virgin Mobile should be paying them for it.
Do you think there is a similarity?
