No hay más Led Zeppelin


By

<P>A pesar de lo dicho ayer, Peter Mensch, manager del guitarrista Jimmy Page, se retractó totalmente en eso que la banda buscaría un reemplazo al ultragenial Robert Plant para seguir rockeando y toureándola por el mundo tras su show de 2007 en el O2 Arena de Londres por el poder de la música más sexual de la historia. No habrá más Led Zeppelin, no hay planes de que lo haya.</P><P>Mensch comentó: "Led Zeppelin se acabó. Si no los vieron en el 2007, se los perdieron. Probaron reemplazantes a Robert Plant, pero nada funcionó. Se acabó. No hay planes para continuar. Francamente, ojalá todos dejaran de hablar al respecto."</P><P>Los fans no están nada contentos, especialmente los británicos, considerando los precios delirantes de las entradas del show reunión.</P><P>¿Y a ti? ¿Qué te parece todo esto?</p>

Marvel's 'Avengers' Success: What Can DC Comics Learn From It?

Marvel Studios tentpole flick provides the perfect template for DC Comics to emulate in their post-'Dark Knight' movie endeavors.

"The Dark Knight Rises" marks the end of an era on multiple levels: Not only is it the grand finale of Christopher Nolan's historic Batman film franchise, it's also the last DC Entertainment movie that's guaranteed to be a hit.

Sure, "Man of Steel" is just one year away, but what's to say that it'll fare better than "Superman Returns," which earned a mere $200 million domestically? And even though a sequel is reportedly in development, "Green Lantern" didn't exactly dazzle with its $116 million performance. Let's face it: Without the box-office behemoth known as the "Dark Knight" trilogy in its back pocket, DC's film future is uncertain at best.

Of course, it doesn't have to be that way. Some of the greatest and most iconic characters in comic book history reside under the DC banner. And if there was any doubt that superheroes have box-office appeal, look no further than "Marvel's The Avengers," which is breaking records and winning over new fans with every passing day. There's much to be learned from the House of Ideas' approach to building a superhero universe on the big screen — and even though they're on opposite sides of the aisle, and even if it's a little bit late in the game, DC would be wise to utilize Marvel's movie strategy ... albeit with some tweaks.

Sting Away
"I'm here to talk to you about the Avengers initiative," Nick Fury told Tony Stark at the end of 2008's "Iron Man," giving life to a shared Marvel movie-verse in one simple line of dialogue. Marvel is the master of using the post-credits stinger as a way to thread its movies together: "Iron Man 2" teasing Thor's hammer, the ending of "Thor" introducing the Cosmic Cube ahead of "Captain America," the list goes on. DC's earliest opportunity to apply the same idea is "Dark Knight Rises," but as the conclusion of a finite trilogy, it doesn't feel like the right place to get that particular ball rolling. They'd be wise to wait until "Man of Steel" flies into theaters in June 2013, ending Kal-el's big-screen comeback with an overt nod toward an expansive cinematic DCU to come.

The World's Finest
A "Man of Steel" stinger doesn't have to set up "Justice League," even if that's the obvious route. It would be just as easy, and perhaps even wiser, to allude to the existence of Batman in the new Superman's world. Nolan's trilogy will be long gone by the time "Man of Steel" drops, and the world will be ready for another trip to Gotham City. But rather than fast-tracking a solo Batman adventure that has to live up to Nolan levels of hype, why not skip straight ahead to the long-anticipated "Superman/Batman" movie? The double-billing of Henry Cavill's Man of Tomorrow and a new Caped Crusader would quickly gratify fans yearning for more Batman and Superman movies, as well as mark a major milestone in the creation of a shared DC universe without having to rush "Justice League" before it's ready.

Back in a Flash
"Superman/Batman" is the quick response to "Avengers"; a movie that can get off the ground by late 2014 or early 2015. It would be much more challenging to create a worthy "Justice League" movie in that time frame. More characters need to be established first: "The Flash," for example, is an easy yes for DC. "Green Lantern" sequels aren't as much of a necessity; a "Justice League" movie could always push Ryan Reynolds' Hal Jordan out of the picture in favor of another Lantern, like John Stewart or Kyle Rayner, introduced perhaps by way of a post-credits "Flash" scene. "Aquaman" and "Wonder Woman" movies would be nice as well, but the former is a hard sell, while the latter ... well, let's talk about the latter.

Hold the Wonder
I want a "Wonder Woman" movie as badly as anybody, but maybe it's best to hold off until after "Justice League." The reason: Hulk syndrome. Like Wonder Woman, Hulk has been a tricky character to pull off in live-action. But if there's anything "Avengers" nailed perfectly, it's "the Other Guy," a hero that few got right before Joss Whedon and Mark Ruffalo came along. Surrounding him with other heroes gave him innumerable opportunities to shine, and now people want to see him alone in his own "Hulk" movie again. I foresee a similar situation with Wonder Woman: Any all-star "Justice League" movie would prove to the uninitiated just how big of a badass Wonder Woman really is, all but guaranteeing the demand for a post-"Justice" solo flick, Jade Giant-style.

Hire Joss Whedon
Just kidding ... mostly. Above all else, the reason why "Avengers" works is because someone who knows, respects and cares about the characters was guiding the film. If DC decides to walk the road to "Justice League," they need someone with Whedon levels of passion and knowledge, someone who can bring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the others together with the love and care they deserve.

They could also just try hiring Joss Whedon. Worked out pretty well for Marvel!

Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder's Mother's Day NYC Stroll

Just a few days removed from the third season finale of their hit show, small screen couple Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder were spotted spending Mother's Day together in New York City.

The "Vampire Diaries" co-star sweethearts lovingly strolled hand-in-hand as they roamed the Big Apple streets on Sunday afternoon (May 13), cutely donning matching black fedoras during the midday outing.

Locked in for at least one more season, Nina and Ian's CW series was renewed for a fourth go-round - with the plans for more vampire action having been announced on May 3rd.

Talking with Us magazine about what fans can expect when "The Vampire Diaries" returns this fall, Miss Dobrev dished, "I liked having one human and one vampire, because then I get the best of worlds and I get to do a variety of things. But, then again, it is going to be different for me and it's going to be challenge. It's going to be more fun to sort of explore that world."

"We're definitely going to see her whole transition into becoming a vampire. We're not going to skip over it, as we have with others," she added. "Becoming a vampire, everything you feel is heightened. . . We know what Elena's like: She has high morals, she looks out for other people. So what's Elena going to be like with those things accentuated?"

As for the intriguing love triangle between her character and those of Ian and fellow castmate Paul Wesley's, Nina said, "It does kind of feel like you're disappointing half the people. But you're always going to disappoint half the people with this kind of storyline. I think we gave them both what they wanted at some point or another during the season, so it's not like we shunned them or disregarded their wants."

Christina Hendricks & Geoffrey Arend: Big Apple Wedding Weekend

Stepping out to celebrate with close pals, Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend were spotted leaving their New York City hotel to attend a friend's wedding on Saturday (May 12.)

The curvacious beauty rocked a floor length floral print gown with a deep v-neck showing off her gorgeous curly red locks, while her actor hubby looked dapper in a light grey suit and yellow tie as they flashed a few smiles for the awaiting shutterbugs.

In career news, the "Mad Men" starlet has been keeping quite busy promoting the return of her hit AMC TV show.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, the 37-year-old actress recently dished about being fortunate for her role as office manager Joan Harris adding, “I think I've been really lucky in that Joan is really a one-of-a-kind character. She's not a stereotype and you don't just see roles like that in every script you get. People have asked me if I've worried about being typecast, but there is no 'type' for Joan."

You can catch new episodes of “Mad Men” every Sunday at 10/9c on AMC.

Russell Brand To Host 2012 MTV Movie Awards

Two-time VMA host will lead the festivities Sunday, June 3, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

Actor, comedian and two-time Video Music Awards emcee Russell Brand will be your host for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards when they air live from the Gibson Amphitheatre on Sunday, June 3, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The star of the upcoming film "Rock of Ages" will lead the fan-voted awards, which celebrate the year's biggest films.

"MTV Movie Awards incorporates two of my favorite things. Movies and Awards. If somehow group sex could be involved it would be the greatest night of my life," Russell Brand said of his hosting gig.

Jesse Ignjatovic, the executive producer for the show, spoke with MTV News about Brand and why he was a clear choice as host. "First of all, I think Russell's the perfect host for this show," said Ignjatovic, who previously worked with Brand during his two stints hosting the VMAs. "He's a movie star. He's probably one of the most brilliant stand-ups that I've seen in his time, and he's a rock star."

And it's that rock-and-roll attitude that Ignjatovic said will play an important role in this year's show, which will highlight the ties between music and film with performances from groups like Fun.

Ignjatovic added that Brand's ability to riff off the unscripted moments in the show really excites him. "Whatever we end up creating around him within the show, he brings that danger thing as well," Ignjatovic said. "We'd love for the show to live there, where you don't know how he's going to react to something in the moment. He's so sharp and witty and on his game that that's an exciting place to live."

But when it really comes down to it, what makes Brand the right host, according to Ignjatovic, is his comedy.

"He has amazing comedic chops. He's brilliant. He touches all of the areas that I think are important to us," he said. "Add to that I think he's one of the most professional people I've worked with in terms of comedians. He's well-studied and very dedicated to his craft. I think we're very fortunate that he said 'yes.' "

Head over to MovieAwards.MTV.com to vote for your favorite flicks now! The 21st annual MTV Movie Awards air live Sunday, June 3, at 9 p.m. ET.

Britney Spears Inks Deal With X Factor!

After what seems like months of speculation it appears that Britney Spears has finally signed a deal to be a judge on The X Factor. In the fall Spears will join Simon Cowell, L.A Reid and a yet to be named person at the judges table on The X Factor.. It is no secret that Simon has been working very hard to get Brit Brit to be a part of the Fox show. Although the first season was considered a success it did not bring in the ratings that American Idol, perhaps Britney will help change that. Although official details of the deal have not yet been releases US Weekly is reporting that allegedly Spears signed a $16 million dollar deal for just one season. If that is true then all I have to say is holy freaking moly that is a lot of cash for one season I sure hope Britney is worth it. Even though many media outlets are confirming the deal has been inked I must tell you that there has not been a peep about this from a rep for the singer, the show or Fox. E! News is reporting that the “Womanizer” singer is beyond [...]

Ryan Gosling's 'Gangster Squad' Trailer: Five Key Scenes

Gosling reunites with Emma Stone in the star-studded, Tommy gun-packed clip.
By Kevin P. Sullivan

Photo: Warner Bros.

One of the fall's most anticipated releases, "Gangster Squad," packs an all-star cast, old-school vibe and a bunch of Tommy guns. Needless to say, we're interested.

The film from "Zombieland" director Ruben Fleischer just got its first trailer, so we've broken it down for you into these five keys scenes.

"Every kingdom comes up bloody"
A centerpiece of the trailer, it's hard to miss Sean Penn even under all of that makeup. In "Gangster Squad," Penn plays Mickey Cohen, an east coast gangster who has come to Los Angeles to become "a god." Cohen is the ultimate evil that the Gangster Squad is going to stop at nothing to put out for good. The trailer gives lots of screen time to Penn, and when you also consider the prosthetics on his face, it's not hard to imagine that Warner Bros. would make a Best Supporting Actor push for him come Oscar season.

Mackie, Gosling and Peña Take Aim
Cohen is not going to have an easy time taking over L.A. with a team like this after him. Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Peña, and Robert "T-1000" Patrick make up not only the illustrious Gangster Squad, but a star-studded roster that rivals any major release this year. Between this and "Men In Black III," Brolin is set to have his biggest year since 2007, when he stormed back into the spotlight and starred in every other movie.

Crazy, Gangster, Love
Gosling and Emma Stone created sparks when they starred as an on-screen couple in last year's "," and here they reunited to keep the passion going, albeit 60 years earlier. Stone plays Grace Faraday, the untouchable girl belonging to Mickey Cohen. Untouchable until Gosling shows up, that is. They only have a few moments together in the trailer, but honestly, they were pretty hot.

Let's All Go to the Movies
It's already immensely clear from the trailer that "Gangster Squad" is a movie that loves movies. This is a L.A. film noir in the tradition of Hammett, Chandler and movies with Humphrey Bogart. All of the tropes are there: the Tommy guns, the fedoras. But at the same time, "Gangster Squad" wants to take a new angle on the genre, and we may be seeing some symbolism for that, when the firing squad opens up on a movie theater through the screen.

The Bottom Line
Listen: If your trailer includes a shot of Ryan Gosling casually catching a shotgun and then pointing said shotgun at a bad guy, while uttering the line, "Not anymore," we're going to see your movie. End of story.

Are you planning on seeing "Gangster Squad"? Let us know in the comments!

Check out everything we've got on "Gangster Squad."

Robert Plant And Alison Krauss Win Grammy Album Of The Year

Raising Sand, from Led Zeppelin vet and bluegrass superstar, wins five Grammys on Sunday night.

<P>"I'm bewildered," <a href="/music/artist/plant_robert/artist.jhtml">Robert Plant</a> said onstage as he accepted the <MTVNLINK type="news" id="1604580">Grammy Album of the Year award</MTVNLINK> with <a href="/music/artist/krauss_alison/artist.jhtml">Alison Krauss</a> on Sunday night. "In the old days we would have called this selling out, but it's a good way to spend a Sunday."</P><P>He was probably one of the few who were surprised, because <i>Raising Sand,</i> which won five trophies at Sunday night's show, is in many ways the perfect <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/grammys/">Grammy</a> album.

And if you don't know who Alison Krauss is, she possesses a haunting set of pipes and is one of the meanest fiddle players in the world. Oh, and she's won 21 Grammys, more than any other female artist and the seventh-most in history.</P><P>Really, she's the key to <i>Sand</i>'s success, and not just because of her voice (or her fiddle playing). She and Plant first met in 2004, at a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tribute to legendary bluesman Leadbelly, and the former Zeppelin man was amazed by her knowledge of American Roots music &#8212; so much so that they began kicking around the idea of recording an album together. Three years later, <i>Sand</i> was released.</P><P>And while Plant possesses the more famous voice, the album's finest moments radiate from Krauss. Whether she's getting bluesy on Little Milton's "Let Your Loss Be Your Lesson" or entwining with Plant's husky voice on songs like "Please Read the Letter" and Roly Salley's winsome "Killing the Blues," she more than carries her end of the bargain.</P><P>And perhaps that's also due to producer Burnett, who handpicked the 13 songs the duo cover on <i>Sand.</i> His arrangements are sparse &#8212; giving the two voices ample room to breathe &#8212; yet dense, warm and crackling at the same time. It's a testament to his work that he's often given just as much billing as Plant and Krauss on the project ... and it's certainly justified.</P><P>To date, <i>Sand</i> has sold more than 1 million copies, heaped tons of acclaim and actually earned a Grammy last year &#8212; "Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)" took home the award for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals.</P><P>One expert was surprised not by the album's success, but by the fact that it's actually quite a good album.</P><P>"At first, the album seemed like a vanity project. ... Two names, clearly a one-off record, didn't have to be any good, you know?" <i>New York Times</i> music critic Jon Caramanica said. "Led Zeppelin fans would buy it because of Robert Plant, Alison Krauss would get a check. But it actually turned out to be a really thoughtful, really <i>good</i> record. So when you combine all that with the fact that the Grammys love to lionize one of their own, I could really see it taking home some awards." </p>

Jennifer Lopez: Mommy Duty in Calabasas

Taking care of her parental responsibilities, Jennifer Lopez was spotted at a Mother’s Day event at her twins Max and Emme’s school in Calabasas, California today (May 11).

The “Waiting for Tonight” songstress looked cute and casual as she made her way through the parking lot and headed inside.

In related news, J. Lo was on the receiving end of some less-than-loving comments from Howard Stern during a press conference to announce his judging gig on “America’s Got Talent.”

The shock jock declared that he wouldn’t have taken the gig if Jennifer or Britney Spears were on the panel. "No, I would not [have], because I think we have the best judging panel out there, out of all these shows. I think that the judges all offer constructive, precise criticism, and I really like it.”

“To sit there with J.Lo and Britney Spears and try to prop those two up, I'd be like a ventriloquist with two dummies; I'm not going to sit there and do that."

Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg will all be on hand on Sunday, June 3, to hand out the Golden Popcorn statuettes.

Could this finally be the year that "Harry Potter" takes home Best Movie, or are the odds in favor of "The Hunger Games"?

Michelle gushed, “I love Anne Hathaway, I’m a huge fan. The nature of all of these characters is they’re played by different people all the time. I think she’s great and I think she’s going to be awesome.”

Elizabeth Banks Juggles Media & Mommy Duties in NYC

Taking care of some media duties, Elizabeth Banks was spottedmaking her rounds in New York City on Thursday (May 10).

Promoting her brand new movie “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” - which is due out in theaters May 18th - the “Hunger Games” hottie first dropped by NBC Studios for an appearance on the "Today" show.

Of her character’s plight, Elizabeth shared, “I think it’s really representative of [many] pregnancies, which is that it’s kind of a disaster. It’s really hard to make a human being- to bake them in an oven, that is, the human body.”

Banks also noted that working with Brooklyn Decker was a bit intimidating, beauty-wise. “She’s Brooklyn Decker! She walked around in a bikini the entire time on the set. It’s like, ‘Come on guys! Really?’”

Later in the day, the 38-year-old hit the evening circuit by turning up at the Ed Sullivan Theater for a visit to the "Late Show with David Letterman" - during which she recalled a family road trip where her sister got left behind at a McDonald's.

Despite the jam-packed schedule, Banks was sure to make time for her young son, Felix, as the too-cute duo took a stroll around the Big Apple the previous day.

Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil Banned From Salons!

Patricia Krentcil has earned the nickname Tanning Mom after she was accused of encouraging her five-year-old to use a tanning bed, leading to burns on her skin. But that is now only part of the problems she is facing. Now her favorite places in the whole, wide world—tanning salons—are starting to black list her. According to TMZ, she is no longer welcome at many of the salons near her home in New Jersey. Can you blame them? The one that allegedly allowed the five-year-old to tan is now under investigation as part of the child abuse case against the mother. But all of this leads me to a few questions. Should tanning salons operate more like bars, where they can deny you if you’ve had enough. This lady has DEFINITELY HAD ENOUGH. She makes the crew from the Jersey Shore look like Casper The Friendly Ghost. It’s not cute, or even midly nice looking, it’s just plain scary! Many of the salons near her have gone so far as to post pictures of her (I can’t imagine having to look at her so often) in their stores to keep staff from allowing her in. It’s almost like the are afraid [...]

James Franco Explains Federline-esque 'Spring Breakers' Cornrows

'As soon as the woman in Florida put [the cornrows] in, the character was alive,' actor says of his drug-dealer role.
By Fallon Prinzivalli, reporting by Josh Horowitz

Despite the young actresses with Disney roots starring in Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," the film is far from just another teen rom-com about traipsing on the beach and falling in love with long-haired surfer boys. This movie's stars — Selena Gomez, and Ashley Benson — are seduced by a grungy rapper named Alien, played by "127 Hours" actor James Franco.

When Gomez tweeted a photo from the set, we barely recognized Franco in character. Dressed in a bright Hawaiian shirt and donning tattoos, massive sunglasses and a gold wristwatch, this isn't the scholarly, unkempt actor we're used to spying in set photos. But what stood out the most were the cornrows neatly aligned on the top of his head. When MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with the actor at CinemaCon 2012, he asked Franco what inspired the cornrows for "Spring Breakers."

"That's a character that Harmony and I have been talking about for over a year," Franco said. "Harmony is one of the best, kind of, researchers that I know, and we just went through a series of looks. You know, people have said, like, K-Fed or Riff-Raff, but that character really is kind of an amalgamation of a lot of different people and inspirations."

Korine's films are notoriously gritty and provocative, and "Spring Breakers" is no different. It's a big departure from Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place" for Selena Gomez and "High School Musical" for Vanessa Hudgens. And while Ashley Benson's "Pretty Little Liars" is a tad more scandalous, the ABC Family hit series isn't nearly as graphic as "Spring Breakers" is expected to be.

The film follows four girls who rob a restaurant to fund their spring break trip. When they're bailed out by Alien, a drug and arms dealer, they find themselves seduced into plotting and helping him with a murder. Gomez recently told Interview magazine that leaving behind her stereotypical good-girl characters is what attracted her to this role. "I was getting kind of repetitive in terms of the roles I was picking, and I really wanted to do something completely different," she said. "I want to be taking myself seriously as an actress, and this was definitely a stretch. I mean, I'd never smoked a cigarette before in my entire life. It was really funny — they had to show me how to do it."

Franco — whose usual attire doesn't include cornrows — also noticed how the character came to life with the help of Korine's direction and the small details to which he paid close attention.

"I can say this: As soon as the woman in Florida put [the cornrows] in, the character was alive. We both knew. We looked in the mirror and it was like, 'Oh my, God. He's here.' "

Check out everything we've got on "Spring Breakers."
