No, that image above is not a real Larry Crowne poster. But don’t you wish it were? The Hollywood Movie Poster has been on life support for a few decades now. Criterion Collection DVD covers are more creative. Amateur practitioners like Mondo have crossed over into the mainstream. And it turns out that freaking Poland makes better movie posters than we do. By comparison, the typical Hollywood poster can’t help but look bland…which makes it all the more impressive when something sticks out from the pack. In the video below, I round up the two best and two worst posters of the year. (Click here for more of our favorites, and click here for more of our least favorites.) Hint: Larry Crowne is not one of the best. READ FULL STORY

Before heading over to the Ziegfeld Theater for the premiere of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, star Rooney Mara stopped right around the block at The Late Show With David Letterman to talk about, among other things, her football background (Fun faux fact: For two years she was a wide receiver for the Broncos. Take that, Tebow!) and the arduous audition and filming process once again. Check out Letterman’s (who seemed pretty psyched about the film, wouldn’t you say?) full interview with the Golden Globe-nominated actress below, including the anecdote at the 9:40 mark in which Rooney describes what happened to a drunk wedding guest who asked her to dance while she was still trying to shake off playing Lisbeth Salander. Let’s just say, it doesn’t end in a fox-trot for the poor guy.

Alec Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flight on Monday, in part, for refusing to stop playing Words With Friends, but the 30 Rock star certainly had no shortage of words when he wrote a piece for The Huffington Post regarding the incident titled “My Flying Lesson.” (Ah, if only Carol had been his Captain!)
The now Twitter-less star (he quit the social networking site hours after sending out a series of angry tweets at the airline) had way more than a 140 characters in what can only be described as a non-apology apology. While Baldwin does begin his open letter by apologizing to his fellow passengers on the flight (“It was never my intention to inconvenience anyone”) the actor mostly aired his frustrations with the airline industry in general.

Alec Baldwin has plenty of prestigious titles in Hollywood (Emmy winner, Oscar nominee, the good Baldwin brother), but he added two more (arguably less prestigious) bragging rights to his resume this week: Celebrity booted from a plane and a Twitter quitter.
One day after Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flights after refusing to stop playing his Words with Friends game and went on a Twitter rampage about the incident (one tweet read, “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt”), the 30 Rock star deactivated his account from the social networking site in light of the controversy.

I am a serious Peanuts aficionado. When I was a kid, I constantly visited our local library to borrow the same gloriously dogeared Peanuts collections. In high school, I wrote a ten-minute speech about the history of the American comic strip, and Peanuts took up about three of those minutes. (Calvin and Hobbes and Doonesbury also featured prominently. Psh, Garfield.) A few years ago, I devoured David Michaelis’ massive biography of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz in a couple marathon reading sessions. But my love for Charlie Brown’s melancholic circle of semi-friends goes back much longer, into the deepest primordial era of my consciousness. That’s because, before I could read Peanuts, I watched Peanuts. READ FULL STORY
Making for quite possibly the worst thing to happen to Australia since those shark attacks in the summer of 2001 and Vegemite, Kim Kardashian made a stop in the land down under on the international leg of her Divorce Tour 2011.
Kardashian, with sister Khloe by her side, visited an Australian talk show where she cleared the air about a few things. Mainly, that her 72-day marriage was not a money-grubbing publicity stunt and she is selflessly not taking time for herself as to not disappoint her fans. That’s right PopWatchers, she’s doing this for us. Watch the interview below: READ FULL STORY
