It's been a grueling search for the female lead of the Hollywood adaptation of Stieg Larsson's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Names have been tossed in the air and shot down like Duck Hunt: Ellen Page, Carey Mulligan, Emily Browning, Emma Watson, Mia Wasikowska, Kristen Stewart. But Sony Pictures has announced today that Lisbeth Salander will be played by Rooney Mara, who recently starred in a remake of Nightmare on Elm Street and in the forthcoming The Social ... Read More

The hilariously specific comedy sketches made by Thunderant's Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen haven't been popping up on their website very regularly these days. This probably has something to do with the fact that they've been busy thinking up new material for 'Portlandia,' a Thunderant inspired comedy series set to air on IFC, which begins production later this month.
The show will be shot entirely in Oregon, and will pull from a bevy of Portland ... Read More

BUST-y lady, and our lovely managing editor, Emily Rems appeared as a guest this morning on the NPR show "The Takeaway" to discuss the death of the "macho man" in present day cinema. Today, two very different movies are being released in theaters nationally - "Eat, Pray, Love" and "The Expendables."
The question at hand here is, when a movie is so crammed with tried and true, and stereotypically "strong" actors, and all of those actors happen to be over forty, ... Read More

In this second installment of imagined scenarios there is no actual food on the table. The Madame of the house has called an emergency meeting.
"He is doing WHAT? Running for my old job as mayor of Wasilla? On a reality TV show?" Sarah fumes. "How could you not know this? Did he not mention it while you were together?"
"Mom, gaah. D'uh. You know we weren't together together. That was just for the paycheck from People. I can't live on what I make at that medical ... Read More
Barbie and I have a very complex relationship. The angry feminist side of me always wants to say, "Eff you, Barbie! I don't have to be pink and pretty and have big boobs and a tiny waist! I don't even look like that! Who does?!?!?" The positive feminist side (and, uh, childhood me) wants to tell the other side, " No, no, no...you don't understand...she's changing! For the better!" And then they debate, and no one ever wins.
Regardless of this, I still think this ... Read More
Uh oh. Looks like California Gurls are no longer good enough for Russell Brand. And by that I mean, I'm sure he and Katy Perry are fine. Russell just tweeted this pic from the set of their remake of Arthur with the words, "At last. A bath from Helen Mirren. Never has getting clean been more dirty." It obviously worked to get the word out because I had no clue about the movie until this moment. Oh well, I guess everywhere's just a Love Ranch to Helen now.

But I can't help but be excited about the new Harry Potter movie coming out in November.
It helps that the HP 7 trailer is super awesome looking (Hermione's jacket is a do-want), Team Starkid just came out with a Very Potter Sequel (Rita Skeeter and Dolores Umbridge have never been so cool), and Potter Puppet Pals now has their own channel with three new videos (sweet!)
Oops. My inner fan-girl is showing. Have some videos and enjoy the utter ... Read More
It's official...one of our favorite BUST-y ladies, Diablo Cody, has sold a pilot to Fox! So far, the only thing anyone knows is that it is called The Breadwinner and it's a comedy. I can only imagine where it could possibly go from there. My mind is running laps with a title like that.
Also also also, she is in the process of working on a repeat performance with Juno director Jason Reitman which will be a film starring Charlize Theron (nice!!) called Young Adult. ... Read More
