Madonna hit back by asking journalists if Elton was "wearing a dress."

Elton John Slams Disney For Shunning 'Gnomeo & Juliet'

March 2nd, 2011 12:31pm EST
Elton John
Elton John has taken aim at Disney bosses for resisting his plans for Gnomeo & Juliet and failing to throw their full support behind the animated movie.

The singer spent more than 10 years trying to convince executives to greenlight the project, which is based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and features the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as the star-crossed lovers in gnome form.

The 3D family favorite has gone on to top the U.S. box office, but Elton is convinced it would have been even more successful with the support of everyone at Disney.

Hall Pass
Disney's animated gnomes have been forced to give up first place at the box office to Owen Wilson and his sex-crazed buddies following a weekend ticket recount.

Family favorite "Gnomeo & Juliet" was ruled the weekend number one on Sunday, but the estimates were wrong and now the Farrelly Brothers comedy "Hall Pass" has debuted in the top spot.

When the final box office totals were tabulated on Monday, "Hall Pass" came out with $100,000 sales more than the 3-D film, which took in $13.4 million in its third week of release.

The news will be a blow to Elton John, who co-created the score fo...

Can two young teenagers find love despite their warring families? Well, we all know how Romeo and Juliet ended up. However in the 3D version of 'Gnomeo & Juliet' directed by Kelly Asbury, things don't turn out quite as tragic for our lovers.

Their respective collection of garden gnomes, the Reds and the Blues view each other with hostility as well. After Blue Gnomeo...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Just Go with It,' 'Gnomeo and Juliet' & More

February 7th, 2011 12:00pm EST
Just Go With It
Last week I did not catch anything new in theaters, but I had the opportunity to see Ben Affleck’s Boston crime thriller “The Town” and the noir drama “Winter’s Bone” on Netflix. Both turned out to be quite enjoyable, although I found “Winter’s Bone” slightly more captivating than “The Town.”

Despite some obvious similarities to Michael Mann’s “Heat,” Affleck manages to spin this tale about robbers from the working-class neighborhood of Charlestown into a compelling movie. His focus on the people from this community is what propels the story. There are frantic bank heists, memorable cha...

The oddball stars have since become close friends, and Elton is convinced the Poker Face hit-maker will rule the charts for years to come - because the superstar is so grounded.

He says, "I love her, she's absolutely amazing. We've become friends. What I lik...
