Marvel Films and Sam Rami are parting ways which means Tobey Macguire & Kirsten Dunst will no longer appear in Spider-Man 4 or any other Spider-Man movie.   There was talk that John Malkovich was going to play "The Vulture" villian in the scrapped film, which Rami wanted, while Marvel wanted a story with the "The Black Cat" villian. 

What will happen now is a reboot of the film.  In all honesty, the first 2 movies were great.  The 3rd tried to do too much and screwed up the franchise......

The Fox hit show "Glee" has been renewed for another season.  Only surprise is why in heaven did Fox take so long to announce it's coming back?.....

Mel Gibson felt the need to talk about Tiger Woods and let Tiger know he feels his pain.  Tiger's response.  Please, Mel, you don't and don't speak for me. I am an adulterer who likes waitresses and not someone who gets drunk and turns racist......

David Hasselhoff is leaving "America's Got Talent" and is being replaced by Howie Mandell.  No word yet if Howie will replace David's drunken adventures.......

New Moon raked in $140 million dollars on it's opening weekend.  It did almost double as what Twilight did when it opened to $69 million. 

Only "The Dark Knight Returns" and "Spider-Man 3" did better.

A surprise at the box office was Sandra Bullock's latest movie, "The Blind Side" which took 2nd place with $35 million.  Almost any other weekend, that would have been enough for first place.  2012 dropped to 3rd bringing in 26 Million after taking in over $60 million last week.

Did you see "New Moon" this weekend and what did you think?-Dr.FB
