Hollywood's Star Maitre D' Reveals Role in Peter Bogdanovich's Latest Movie



The new criticism centers on whether the environmental impact report for the project adequately disclosed all the facts review about the fault. At a news conference Wednesday on the steps of City Hall, Robert Silverstein cited an email written by an employee of the citys Department of Building and Safety and sent to the developers law firm. The email, dated March 16, 2012, said city geologist Dana Prevost met with the project team to discuss the Hollywood fault line that could potentially be crossing the property. Another email written by an employee of the developers law firm said there was a Hollywood Fault trace mapped by the California Geological Survey that prompted the discussion with Prevost. A separate geology report dated May 23, 2012, from Prevost said that, According to the Fault Activity Map of California, dated 2010, prepared by the California Geological Survey, the Hollywood Fault is considered active and appears to exist in the vicinity of the subject site. Silverstein questioned why the project developer then asserted in its October 2012 environmental impact report -- a document required for the project to be approved -- that the Hollywood fault is located about 0.4 miles from the project site, attributing that fact to the California Geological Survey and ZIMAS, the citys zone information system. "They said theres no evidence of a fault on their site. But yet theres good evidence from the California map -- which they knew about -- but which never made its way into the [environmental impact report], Silverstein said. <br>Source: http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-hollywood-fault-millennium-20130807,0,3258562.story





Hollywood's Hillary War: Why Clinton Fallout Could Be Worse Than GOP Wrath



Part of the lack of lead female action stars is the prevailing mentality of safe bets by the big studios making such films and part of it is the fact that so many aging franchises the studio favors didnt come equipped with empowered female characters, entertainment and pop culture expert, Scott Huver, told FOX411s Pop Tarts column. Safe and familiar rules the blockbuster mentality at the moment, and very few are trying to trail-blaze for action heroines. Scarlett Johnassen's Black Widow in 'The Avengers' movies is one of the few female super heroes who remains. [Writer] Joss Whedons take on the Black Widow in The Avengers set up some hidden depths and intriguing back story, but she also remains one of the few Avengers who is yet to be given her own solo film, Huver pointed out. All of this is slow coming after Sigourney Weavers Ripley and Linda Hamiltons Sarah Conner laid the groundwork for female leads in action films beloved by both men and women. Whedon has reportedly assured fans that Widow will be a huge part in the next Avengers installment. And the long-standing argument that females dont have the same draw as their male counterparts is perhaps one that is waning, especially given the poor box office performance of a number of men-led summer blockbusters this year. Conversely, several of the lady-led action films have kicked box office butt. Jolies Salt grossed just under $400 million at the international box office off a $110 million production budget while The Tomb Raider series accumulated $431 million against its $213 million budget. <br>Source: http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/08/05/hollywood-summer-superhero-blockbusters-avoid-casting-female-leads/





Critics charge Hollywood promoting socialism with 'Elysium' (Video)



NBC chief Bob Greenblatt said Diane Lane will star, though the script hasn't been written and the Clintons were not notified in advance of the announcement. According to Thomason, the Clintons would not expose themselves to an accusation of attempting to influence either film. But he says they and their allies are certain to be vigilant about both projects. And those who incur the couple's displeasure typically feel it, not through the Clintons themselves but through surrogates. "It's the potential to bring lightning down on yourself," he says.

Elysium doesnt have a message, Blomkamp said. Entertainment Weekly said Blomkamp was inspired by an incident that occurred during a trip to Mexico in which he was released into a poor area of the countryside outside of Tijuana following an encounter with the police. According to the story, floodlights streamed into Mexico from the U.S. side of the border, and Black Hawk helicopters patrolled the skies. It was like science fiction on Earth, he said. The movie is set sometime in the mid-22nd century, Newsmax said, where wealthy elites live in a luxurious space station called "Elysium," complete with mansions and cures for every disease imaginable. <br>Source: http://www.examiner.com/article/critics-charge-hollywood-promoting-socialism-with-elysium





Earthquake fault risk to Hollywood skyscrapers hidden, foes say



And while the band may not have scorched the Bowl during Monday's summer tour pseudo wrap-up (Phish will return to the stage for three shows near Denver at the end of the month), the guys presented a very solid - albeit somewhat-reserved - musical offering to the exuberant Los Angeles crowd. Not to be undersold, the band - who was coming off of three straight epic-by-all-accounts nights at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco -- was upbeat and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying their second trip to the famed Hollywood venue (their first coming in August 2011) right from the start. REVIEW: Phish In Long Beach... With Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez?!? (Aug. 2012) The "AC/DC Bag" > "The Moma Dance" opening combo served as a solid foundation for the show's pre-sunset launch, with the first set also including a handful of Phish standards like "Lawn Boy," "Wolfman's Brother" and "Roses Are Free." The highlight of the first set came during a rockin' "Scent of a Mule," with an all-band drum solo, featuring drummer Jon Fishman playing Mike Gordon's bass with a pair of mallets, while keyboardist Page McConnell and frontman Trey Anastasio took over the drum kit in Fishman's stead.
