5. JESSE EISENBERG CAST AS LEX LUTHOR
Just when you thought Hollywood had run out of super-hero movies to remake…It was announced last Friday that Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in the upcoming Superman-Batman film. The film is set for a May 6, 2016, release.
4. “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN” CLOSES TO HIGHEST RATINGS EVER
The “American Horror Story: Coven” finale last Wednesday drew in the most viewers ever for the FX franchise, with 4.2 million tuning in during the first airing and a total of 5.8 million after playing an encore. Although “Coven” has come to an end, a fourth season will premiere in fall 2014.
3. “REAL HOUSEWIVES” STAR FILES FOR DIVORCE
And another one bites the dust. This time it was Ramona Singer, star of the New York cast of Bravo’s immensely popular reality franchise. Singer and her husband Mario announced this week that they are divorcing after 22 years of marriage, allegedly because of cheating on Mario’s part. Fans can now all eagerly await Ramona’s spinoff series about the single life. Crazier things have happened on Bravo (and regularly do).
2. “THE FAULT IN OUR STARS” OFFICIAL TRAILER RELEASED
Fans of John Green’s novel rejoiced last week when the official “TFiOS” trailer was revealed, announcing a June 6, 2014, release. Teen cancer patient, Hazel Grace, has been nearly terminal since diagnosis; but when she (reluctantly) meets cancer survivor Augustus at support group, he takes her on journey that completely rewrites her story. Watching the trailer confirms that tissues will be necessary in order to see the full film.
1. “MILEY UNPLUGGED”
Last Wednesday, the ever-controversial starlet aired a 45-minute special on MTV and showed audiences two sides of Miley. She first donned a cowgirl outfit and twerked on a human horse (supposedly channeling her hometown, Nashville), then later performed stripped down versions of her songs with no gimmicks onstage to distract from her true vocal power. Oh, and Madonna joined her in a cowgirl suit to perform a medley, “Don’t Tell Me/We Can’t Stop.” Miley’s latest antics have received mixed reviews, but one thing is certain: she’s still got us talking.
