Meanwhile, Rinna and Jillette did the best they could to get Busey on track and motivated for a win. Continue reading

The 2012 London Olympics are set to begin later this week, with the opening ceremony on Friday. We expect quite a spectacle in London for the opening ceremony, with an estimated budget somewhere north of $42 million. And they will have a lot to compete with if we all remember the 2008 Beijing games and the unprecedented opening ceremony there.

The Dark Knight Rises doesn’t officially sail into theaters until July 20th but already tickets will go on sale for the Christopher Nolan picture this coming Monday, June 11th. There’s something to be said about fans buying their seat a month in advance.

The recent promo trailers for Snow White and the Huntsman has also earned some intrigue with its dark battle scenes, spinning the well known fairytale in a different direction that will most likely capture the attention of both teen and adult audiences.

Now that the excitement over The Avengers has died down some there’s a new fanboy flick on the horizon that some are saying will crush Marvel’s motion picture, while others are saying there’s just no way.
