'The Hangover 2' Release Threatened Over Tattoo Accusation

 "The Hangover Part II" faces a problem less than a month before it hits theaters. S. Victor Whitmill, a tattoo artist who gave Mike Tyson his distinctive facial art, is suing Warner Bros. Pictures over the similar-looking facial ink on Ed Helms' face, and asking for an injunction to stop the movie's release. 

A complaint has been filed on Thursday, April 28 in federal court in St. Louis. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the statement read, "When Mr. Whitmill created the Original Tattoo, Mr Tyson agreed that Mr. Whitmill would own the artwork and thus, the copyright in the Original Tattoo." 

"Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. - without attempting to contact Mr. Whitmill, obtain his permission, or credit his creation - has copied Mr. Whitmill's Original Tattoo and placed it on the face of another actor...," the statement continued. "This unauthorized exploitation of the Original Tattoo constitutes copyright infringement." 

Also being attached to the lawsuit was Whitmill's copyright registration for the "Original Tattoo", and Tyson's signature as a proof that the ex-champ granted rights in the work. In addition the document, some pictures of Whitmill applying the design on Tyson's face were included. 

In trailers and posters for the second installment of the comedy, Helms sports a body art while enduring the hilarious situation in Bangkok. Helm's tattoo looks like Tyson's, and was also chiseled on the same spot as Tyson's. Tyson himself made an appearance in "The Hangover" as himself, chasing the main characters after they stole his tiger. 

On another "The Hangover 2" news, Ken Jeong has recently posted on his Twitter page a new poster for the movie. The actor wrote, "Latest poster for The Hangover Part II...." , before attaching the new picture. 

"The Hangover 2" is scheduled for May 26 release across the nation during Memorial Day weekend. The gang from the first film are in Bangkok to celebrate Stu's wedding when they discover themselves in another state of black-out. 

Also reprising their roles as Helms' buddies are Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha. Jamie Chung, Nick Cassavetes and Juliette Lewis are among actors supporting the movie. Todd Phillips returns to serve behind the lens.

Vanessa Hudgens Cast as Pregnant Teen in Indie Drama

Vanessa Hudgens is eying an indie project as her next movie after "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island". THR said in its report that the actress is in "final negotiations" to star in "Gimme Shelter" which will pair her up withBrendan Fraser. 

If Hudgens indeed is cast, she would portray a pregnant teen girl who is homeless after fleeing from her abusive mother. She starts a journey to find her biological father who had her through a youthful fling. He first "takes her in but then throws her out when she refuses to abort her child". Fraser is to slip in the role of the girl's father. 

The script is developed by Ron Krauss who would also direct the film and produce the movie along with Jeff Rice and Dama Claire. Production is scheduled to start at the end of the May and filming will take place in Connecticut. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger: I May Act in 'Cry Macho'

Arnold Schwarzenegger has recently opened up about his upcoming project. After admitting he wants to return to his acting career, the former California Governor has revealed that he may make an appearance in a new drama, "Cry Macho". 

Asked about what project he will likely join, the "Terminator" star told Entertainment Weekly, "You will be amazed, but I am going to answer your question. 'Cry Macho'." He later explained his reason on choosing the movie, "It's a little movie that got my attention because it is so opposite of what you'd expect someone like me to do...I don't know if that will be my next movie, but it could be. It's really a wonderful story." 

Schwarzenegger also shared some details of the movie. He said, "It's about a guy who is a horse trainer. He's a little bit over-the-hill. The last two years didn't go so well. But then the owner of the horses gives him a challenge. He sends him to Mexico to get his son." 

"The owner's wife cheated him out of a business and took their son, and the owner wants to pay her back, so he sends the trainer to get his kid," he went on. "And it becomes a movie about the relationship between the boy, who never had a parent that cared about him, and this horse trainer."

On the same occasion, he also talked about rumors of "True Lies" sequel as well as the next "Terminator" film. "The idea of a True Lies sequel has been around since the early 2000s, but then 9/11 happened and we didn't do it because it had to do with a terrorist attack," so he said. "A lot of terrorist-type scripts were canceled back then, but now they are emerging again because there hasn't been a terrorist attack in the last 10 years." 

"Then, of course, there's dialog about me getting back into the Terminator thing. But you know, I've been out of office only two months now. I couldn't be thinking about doing Terminator 16 while I was still governor." 

"Cry Macho" is a film based on a novel by N. Richard Nash, who adapted the screenplay before his death in December 2000. Al Ruddy and Bill Block serve as the producers, with Brad Furman directing. Release date is yet to be announced. 

Royal Wedding Coverage: William and Kate Delight Crowd With Two Kisses

Prince William and Kate Middleton have sent the crowd gathering at Buckingham Palace to hysteria after they exchanged two kisses. Two hours after saying their vows at Westminster Abbey, the newly-married couple stepped onto the balcony of the palace and delighted the crowd gathering with a royal kiss. 

Amidst the chanting of the crowd, the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did a very brief kiss. Apparently not satisfied by the quick peck on the lips, the crowd then chanted "kiss again". At first it seemed that the happy couple was not going to oblige to what the crowd demanded, but within minutes, they exchanged a longer kiss before the public eyes. 

The newlyweds along with their family made an appearance on the balcony to watch a ceremonial flypast from the Royal Air Force and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Afterward, they retreated back inside for the queen's reception for some 600 guests. 

Around 2 billion people across the globe tuned in to watch William and Kate saying "I will" on Friday, April 29. Though both looked nervous, they were all smiles and recited their vows without a glinch before Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams. Still, when William slipped the ring onto his bride's finger, it seemed that he had a brief moment of difficulty. 

For the special day, Kate wore a long-sleeved lace gown designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. William, in the meantime, donned the uniform of Colonel of the Irish Guards that features a scarlet jacket, a gold and crimson sash, gold sword slings without a sword in it and a forage cap. 

Kristen Stewart gets into bikini for love scene with Robert Pattinson

Actress Kristen Stewart slipped into an itsy-bitsy bikini to shoot love scenes with her real-life lover, actor Robert Pattinson, for “Twilight: Breaking Dawn”.
The shooting spot at St.Thomas in the US Virgin Islands had a lot of security to avoid the hot scenes between the characters, Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, from being observed.
Armed police patrolled the beach while a police launch moved around in the sea to ensure that nobody got a glimpse of the shoot, reports
Stewart showed off her slim frame in a bright green bikini that was unfastened at the halter, suggesting there could be a topless scene in the awaited movie too.

Kristen Stewart Wanted to Shoot R-Rated Delivery Scene

Kristen Stewart's human character Bella gives birth to a half-vampire baby in the new films - "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" - and she regrets the fact that filmmakers had to play down some of the action described in Stephenie Meyer's book.

Kristen Stewart often wonders just what director Bill Condon could have done if he was allowed to make an R-rated movie.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "In some ways it was disappointing not to be able to really go there... The birth is really effective, and I've heard it really hits you in the face, but what it could have been? It could have been shocking and grotesque, because that's how it was written in the book." 

"I would have loved to have been puking up blood."

Katy Perry, Bret Michaels Pray for Storm Victims

A barrage of storms ravaged six southern states over a 24-hour period which began on Wednesday, April 27, and devastated entire neighborhoods, claiming nearly 300 lives. 

The majority of deaths occurred in Alabama, where over 200 people died.

Royal Wedding Coverage: Prince William Appears to Have Trouble With the Ring

The royal wedding is underway. Soon after Kate Middleton arrived at Westminster Abbey, she was escorted down the aisle by her father and the ceremony began. It went without a hitch although there was a moment when Prince William seems to have difficulty in slipping the ring onto her finger since it looked to be a very tight fit. 

Daily Mail reported that when Kate first joined William at the altar, the 28-year-old prince whispered, "You look beautiful," to his radiant bride. Moments later, they exchanged their vows. "I, William Arthur Philip Louis, take thee, Catherine Elizabeth, to my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse," he vowed. "For richer, for poorer. In sickness and in health. To love and to cherish, till death us do part." 

In his sermon, Bishop of London Richard Chartres told the newlywed, "William and Catherine, you have chosen to be married in the sight of a generous God who so loved the world that he gave himself to us in the person of Jesus Christ. And in the Spirit of this generous God, husband and wife are to give themselves to each another." 

"A spiritual life grows as love finds its centre beyond ourselves. Faithful and committed relationships offer a door into the mystery of spiritual life in which we discover this; the more we give of self, the richer we become in soul; the more we go beyond ourselves in love, the more we become our true selves and our spiritual beauty is more fully revealed. In marriage we are seeking to bring one another into fuller life." 

"I pray that all of us present and the many millions watching this ceremony and sharing in your joy today, will do everything in our power to support and uphold you in your new life. And I pray that God will bless you in the way of life that you have chosen, that way which is expressed in the prayer that you have composed together in preparation for this day." 

William and Kate's prayer read, "God our Father, we thank you for our families; for the love that we share and for the joy of our marriage. In the busyness of each day keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy. Strengthened by our union help us to serve and comfort those who suffer. We ask this in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Amen."
