Megan Fox Casted on the New Pirates of the Carribean

Megan Fox Casted on the New Pirates of the CarribeanMegan Fox was all over Gossip News this past month about her not being casted in director Michael Bay's upcoming new movie Transformers 3. Megan, who was part of the first two sequel of the Transformers franchise, allegedly had criticized and bad mouth the director, some production cast and crews. Megan's spokesman announced that it was Megan's own choice to be not part of the Transformers third installment.

It was well publicized and hyped up by the media, and some say leading her exile in the third franchise production, even though according to her representatives, she left the movie having good terms with everyone in the movie production. For some people, they thought it marked the beginning of Megan's career downfall. But it turns out, it was just speculations, as she was recently casted to another box office franchise movie giant in Walt Disney's latest installment of The Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides.

As soon as Disney's production executives were looking for a very sexy actor that would play a sexy mermaid role, she thought of it as the perfect role for her. Also, the fact she is a huge Johnny Depp fan who plays the role of Captain Jack Sparrow whom she will seduce in the film, made her more determined to be casted. She even told friends that she's so determined that she will do everything to land this role.

According to Megan, she's very grateful for being part of the first two Transformers sequel, for allowing her the opportunity and exposure to built her name in the movie industry. She said she's ready to move on and is desperate to be working with Johnny Depp whom she loved and idolized as an actor. The new installment of the Pirates of the Carribean would not be casting former stars Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley. The movie is said to open next year where Megan will also co-star with another sexy actor and an Academy Award winner Penelope Cruz.

Maria Sharapova beat Kristina Barrois in FranceMaria Sharapova, the 3 time Grand Slam Singles champion and a former world rank number one, cruised in the 22nd WTA Tour title tournament in France as a wild card at the Internationaux de Strasbourg. Maria had just recovered from a two month sideline, due to a recent elbow injury to beat Kristina Barrois from Germany by straight sets of 7-5, 6-1.

The 6'2 Maria who now ranks no. 13 as of May 3, 2010, struggled with Kristina's single handed backhand. Barrios kept the ball too low for her to reach that resulted for her to fall behind 5-3 in the early sets. After the confident Barrios took the lead, Sharapova won straight 7 games and eventually beat out Kristina by winning 10 of the final 11 remaining sets of the match. She also won in Memphis by not dropping a single set in Febraury, giving her second title this Year.

After an early upset and surprising loss in Madrid, she requested in this tournament to particapate as a wild card. This request was to mainly work on her game and be prepared for the much anticipated and upcoming important French Open. Although beauty still matters to her, she insisted on different occasions that she wants to be more committed in what mattered to her most, which is being on top of her game once again.

Her gruesome last year's 6-0, 6-2 lost against Dominika Cibulkova in the quarter finals after winning 3 set matches of the first four rounds is something she want to erase by having a a great awesome year. She would likely face the 19 year old Ksenia Pervak, the Russian qualifier in the first round of her camapaign in Paris.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Movie

Prince of Persia The Sands of Time MovieThe Sands of Time is an upcoming and latest buzz Online Movie this 2010. It is based on the very popular action adventure fantasy video game that is developed and released by Ubisoft Montreal in 2003. The film is starred by Jake Gyllenhaal playing as the Persian Prince Dastan. It was written by Boaz Yakin, Jordan Mechner, Carlo Bernard, and Doug Miro directed by Mike Newell, and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

It's a PG-13 rating by the MPAA due to it's intense sequences of violence and action , the only fourth film under a Walt Disney Pictures with that rating. The movie release of "The Sands of Time" would be followed by a couple of sequel namely "Warrior Within" and "The Two Thrones" both of which were video game sequels to the original "The Sands of Time" video game.

The Pirates of the Caribbean film trilogy which was also produced by Jerry Bruckheimer served as a touchstone on how the environment of the film would be converted for the film franchise.

Mechner re-conceived the storyline in writing the script to shift the perspective of video gamers experience to a non-interactive experience as a film audience.

Also, Ubisoft Montreal will release alongside the film, the developed video game entitled "Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands" which unrelated to the film but serves as a midquel for the first two games in the Sands of Time trilogy.

Avatar 2 would have Release Date Soon

Avatar 2 would have Release Date SoonAvatar 2 production have been promised by James Cameron for the past months now. A number of hints were even dropped, including a rumored aquatic environment setup to be to be installed in the second sequel of Avatar.

This is totally a feasible theory knowing James Cameron’s obsession in Aquatic Life, spending millions submarines running around the ocean. Although most Avatar fans think that the blue cat people were done primarily because of the 3D technology, truth is his interest in that format was because of his passion in photographing underwater life. So Avatar 2 taking place Undertwater is definitely not a long shot but indeed a very close one.

“Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rain forest. I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well.” Cameron said in LA Times interview.

Cameron's Avatar 2 plan is to go oceanic. While the third installment, may possibly leaving the Pandora world entirely. “We created a broad canvas for the environment of film. That’s not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system. And we expand out across that system and incorporate more into the story – not necessarily in the second film, but more toward a third film.” said Cameron.

Knowing Cameron for loving to prove people wrong, he did say to skeptics that Avatar 2 will definitely have a release date within the next few months. Avatar 2 is estimated to be done in a span of 3 years according to Cameron. Although having a release date doesn't necessarily mean any guarantee of the Avatar 2 production. Studios are still quiet and giving out no statement regarding the release, since they are still waiting for the actual production before jumping into any conclusion.

Producer Jon Landau, said less than a month ago that Cameron is considering making other film project before eventually creating the sequel to Avatar. If it's that's the case, let's just hope that it won't take another 10 years before we could see the new Pandora. The elusive release date may give us clue on what's Cameron's mind is headed next.

Preganant Claudia Schiffer Pose Nude for Vogue

Preganant Claudia Schiffer Pose Nude for VogueCreating a Breaking News this week in the fashion world is the new issue of the German Vogue magazine which features a nude pose of the pregnant 39 year old former supermodel Claudia Schiffer.

"There are probably not many other women who have been photographed as often as Claudia. But she has never been seen in such a different way," Christiane Arp, Vogue German magazine's editor said.

Nowadays, it's safe to pose on the cover of a high fashion magazine in a very different way or approach, like posting nude while you're preganant without hurting a celebrity's credibility.

In fact it's a rising fashion magazine trend, Schiffer's pregnant nude pose is almost the precise pose we saw pregnant Britney Spears did for Harpers, Monica Bellucci with Vanity Fair and Cindy Crawford posed for W.

Even Demi Moore posed naked and pregnant once, and at that time, it was fresh in the world of fashion and even very daring for the people perception. It was 1991 were the world went to all kinds of craziness. “The Simpsons” was considered dysfunctional and disturbing. People were still figuring out what an “e-mail” was. And that the baby inside Moore's belly during the time she pose nude is now actually 18.

NFL Draft Bust Jamarcus Russell released by Raiders

NFL Draft Bust Jamarcus Russell released by RaidersOn the Latest Sports News with JaMarcus Russell’s career in Oakland, the Raiders officially released him on Thursday. The Raiders made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft.

For three years playing as a starting QB for the Raiders, he only managed to win seven times. Although technically decision were already made by skeptics two weeks since Oakland acquired Jason Campbell from Washington to take over at quarterback.

Al Davis may have become loveless to the stronged armed but unproductive player he drafted in 2007. This verdict might make him the NFL’s biggest draft bust to date, paying him more than $39 million for three years of service. He would now be joining the likes of Ki-Jana Carter, Ryan Leaf, Akili Smith, Charles Rogers, Tony Mandarich, and Heath Shuler on that list.

On the last week’s minicamp, Russell told that he would keep showing and coming to work until they told him to stop. In the first five practices, he looked pretty decent but in the weekend he got less work and eventually cut ties with him. “We wish him well,” John Herrera said, senior executive of the Raiders.

Since the start of the 1967 common draft only Indianapolis top pick Steve Emtman in 1992 was released this quickly after three seasons in the NFL, but that was due to injuries. He played his three seasons with Miami and Washington.

Besides winning for only seven games for 25 starts, he extended the Raiders and NFL-worst streak to loose atleast 11 games for seven straight seasons. It still a blurr for now whether any team will give Russell another shot since he's only 24.

Russell won only seven of his 25 starts as the Raiders extended an He completed just 52.1 percent of his passes in his career with 18 touchdowns, 23 interceptions, 15 lost fumbles and a passer rating of 65.2. That means Russell has been paid more than $5 million per win, more than $2 million per touchdown pass and more than $100,000 per completion.
