Fans of erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" went ballistic earlier this week when the announcements of the two leads in the film adaptation of the book came from none other than author E.L. James herself.

Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard has denied reports he is set to star in a remake of cult classic The Crow.

Rumors began swirling earlier this week suggesting the True Blood star was in the mix for the lead role of Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to track down thugs who killed his fiancee, in a re-imagining of the 1994 thriller.

Speculation began after British actor Tom Hiddleston distanced himself from the part, clearing the path for Skarsgard who was reportedly interested in the movie, but he has since denied any involvement in the project.

He tells Britain's GQ magazine, "I'm pitching it right now. I wouldn't want to miss that. Well, I'm hoping they would do something like the scene with Hamlet's father, and that Meekus will come back as a ghost - I mean, he's definitely dead."

Stephen Moyer Is Open To Angry Vampire Sex With 'True Blood' Co-Star Alexander Skarsgard

July 13th, 2012 11:36am EDT
True Blood
Remember last season when Sookie fantasized about a threesome with vampires Eric and Bill on "True Blood?" Well, that fantasy could have been much, much steamier.

Stephen Moyer, who plays Bill, told The Advocate he has definitely thought about the two vampires getting down in dirty in bed: "I’ve been asking myself that question for a long time. Alex (Skarsgard) and I would absolutely embrace that. Last year, when Sookie had her fantasy about the two of them with her, we even suggested it. Of course, Bill and Eric together isn’t necessarily Sookie’s fantasy."

Review 'Battleship': Stick With The Board Game And Skip The Movie

May 17th, 2012 11:30am EDT
Battleship
'Battleship' directed by Peter Berg (Hancock) has a poorly constructed script, ridiculous dialogue, cardboard characters and it's really, really loud.

It does have bad ass aliens and some exciting visual effects but that is not enough to save this $200,000,000 fiasco.

When the film opens, we find out that a group of scientists in Hawaii have sent out a signal to Planet G whose atmosphere is similar to ours. They must have been thinking, "wow another planet we get to ruin." Anyway, to the scientist's surprise their signal is heard.

That's right folks...The extra terrestrials are coming ...

Get ready for a bloody good time this summer as the season premiere of HBO's True Blood kicks off June 10. Beware, the new trailer seems to have a spoiler or two in it, so if you're one of those "I don't want to know" people, you've been warned.

Judging from this new trailer, it looks like the underground Vampire Authority is pissed as human-vampire relations have broken down. We also get a glimpse of Chris Meloni in action and as usual Sookie (Anna Paquin) seems to be in the thick of it all.

Skarsgård recognizes that even "True Blood," considered envelope-pushing in America, remains "very tame, by Swedish standards."

Singer Rihanna was forced to undergo grueling boot camp sessions to prepare for her debut acting role in Battleship.

The Umbrella hit-maker plays a tough cadet in the film, based on the game of the same name, and trained for the movie by running around a ship, swimming and weightlifting.

However, Rihanna relished her demanding work-outs - because they made her feel ready to portray a sailor.

She tells Fandango.com, "One man drilled me, yelled at me, cursed me out, made me do push-ups... My best friend was there and I told her, 'I'm about to do acting class. You're gonna want to kill t...

We love it when celebs get creative with their hair (see Rihanna and Katy Perry), but Kate didn't get it quite right. What do you think?

Perhaps she's just having fun being single? The actress and "True Blood" star Alexander Skarsgaard recently called it quits after two years together.

The first trailer for Battleship has officially been released, and it looks... familiar? The film is based on the classic Hasbro game you played back when you were a kid, however that seems to be the only thing the movie and its inspiration have in common.

Call us crazy, but on first impression the film looks like the love-child of Armageddon and Independence Day, with a little bit of The Abyss thrown in for good measure.
