So apparently the suits at Disney have given up and are like, "Fiiiiine, we'll make Merida an un-hot ginger."
The controversy, which first reared its head earlier this week when a more slim-trim/glammy Merida from "Brave" was unveiled for her coronation as a Disney World Princess, has resulted in fan outcry that ultimately led the Mouse House to tell Inside the Magic that the redesign was strictly a "one-time stylized version" that will only be used on a "limited line of products" for Target.

Scarlett Johansson has always been an immeasurably talented actress who unfortunately finds herself all too frequently underrated, mostly because she's so super-hot that she can stop traffic and make people's ice cream cones melt. Thankfully, as Variety reports out of Cannes, that Johansson will be able to show a different side of herself that doesn't involve skin tight outfits or being the token female in a group full of macho male superheroes, as she embarks on her directorial feature debut — an adaptation of Truman Capote's nearly-lost novel "Summer Crossing."Get More »

First off: yes, the 'Riddick' franchise, which began with 2000's pleasingly grungy "Pitch Black" and continued, into a more opaque fantasy realm with 2004's "Chronicles of Riddick," is still alive and well. For some reason.
In the series, Vin Diesel plays the titular mercenary, who has had his eyes "shined" so he can see in the dark (which is apparently a problem in the future, maybe because everyone is out in space). He's such a badass that in the opening moments of the trailer for the third film, simply called "Riddick" (just Riddick, it's cleaner), he grabs a dragon by the throat. Note to dragons everywhere: don't mess with Vin Diesel. Get More »

Can you say "'Iron Man 2" reunion"?
As much as we'd like to forget that particular sequel confection, all the essential ingredients of it were solid (except perhaps the gamey taste of Mickey Rourke), so it makes our mouth water to learn via The Hollywood Reporter that the delectable Scarlett Johansson will be assembling with Avenger Robert Downey Jr. for star/director Jon Favreau's "Chef."Get More »
