New 'Dark Shadows' Soundtrack Hits the Web: The Killers 'Go All the Way'

As "Dark Shadows" is getting closer to its U.S. release date on May 11, one of its soundtracks is unleashed. The song is titled "Go All the Way" and it's a cover of Raspberries' 1972 song that was recorded by The Killers.

"Our old pal Tim Burton asked us to record a cover song for his new film #DarkShadows," so the band informed their Twitter followers on how they ended up making music for the film. "It opens everywhere Friday. See you at the movies.."

In addition to the song cover, a handful of classics like Donovan's "Season of the Witch", The Carpenters' "Top of the World" and Alice Cooper's "Ballad of Dwight Fry" are picked as theme songs. There's also Johnny Depp reciting Steve Miller Band's "The Joker".

To choose songs that fit the vibes of the 70s-set vampire tale, Burton says, "We just went through all the music of that year." He adds, "Doing that research reminded me of listening to all that music on AM radio over and over again."

"The quality of the music felt strange at the time, and it still feels strange, going from kind of cheesy pop to really cool hardcore stuff. It was a weird year for music. We tried to pick music that fit the era and fit the score and the vibe of the story."

For the score, Burton teams up with his longtime collaborator Danny Elfman. Their work in the movie marks for the first time ever they took inspiration from the original material. "We made a conscious decision to make no references - ever - to the originals," Elfman explained. "But here, this was different."

Robert Pattinson Pays Tribute to David Cronenberg's Movies in Provocative Photo Shoot

 Robert Pattinson has paid homage to director David Cronenberg, who works with him in "Cosmopolis", in a new magazine photo shoot. Ditching his Edward Cullen persona from the "Twilight Saga" film series, the British actor went dark to resemble some provocative poses from Cronenberg's most memorable movies.

In the 13-hour photo shoot for May issue of France's Premiere magazine, Pattinson posed shirtless while sporting an open hole on his belly. The gruesome pose was inspired by a scene in Cronenberg's 1983 sci-fi horror "Videodrome", which exposed extreme violence and torture.

In another photo, the "Bel Ami" thesp was pictured lying half-naked on bed with a heavily pregnant brunette. The steamy pose was adapted from 1988's psychological drama "Dead Ringers". There were some other grotesque photos which were inspired by Cronenberg's other sci-fi horror "Scanners".

In upcoming "Cosmopolis", Pattinson stars as Eric Packer, a 28-year old billionaire who faces various unexpected troubles while traversing Manhattan in his stretch limo in order to get a haircut from his preferred barber. The gritty film will be premiered during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival in France.

Sharing how he feels of being involved in the dark movie, the British actor gushed, "Filming Cosmopolis with David changed something in me. It gave me balls." He admitted that before signing on to the film, he "spent time doubting myself. As soon as I read a script that I liked, I was working myself up, asking myself if I was good enough. I tell myself: 'F*** it! If they want to hire you, go!' "

Alyssa Milano and Other Celebs Weigh In on TIME's Controversial Breastfeeding Cover

 TIME magazine is raising a lot of eyebrows with the cover photo of its newest issue. Displaying a young mother breastfeeding her three-year-old son, the cover image quickly attracted media attention, sparked online debate about attachment parenting and drew mixed reactions from a number of celebrities.

Among those complaining about the cover were actress Alyssa Milano and model Joanna Krupa. "@Time, no! You missed the mark! You're supposed to be making it easier for breastfeeding moms. Your cover is exploitive & extreme," tweeted Milano, as Krupa posted, "Time magazine cover is pretty disturbing! Breast feeding a 3yr old is wrong! What's wrong w ppl!"

Mayim Bialik of "The Big Bang Theory", meanwhile, took to her Facebook to say, "i am going to bat about this TIME cover photo for all of the amazing women who helped me be the mother i was meant to be. this is for you, La Leche League International and for every lactation consultant and fellow mama warrior who held me while I cried. this is not easy, to try and speak for all of us, but i will do my best to make you proud."

Dane Cook, on the other hand, poked fun at the cover by writing on his Twitter, "Time Magazine's cover is pretty ballsy or tittsy. The kid looks nourished. Wonder if they call that the yum yum chair." Also weighing on on the controversy was Rush Limbaugh, who wrote, "Improving Time's cover: Replace the mother with a Statue of Liberty... and you've got the Obama platform. #rushbabes."

Picking up a cover story that explores the growing trend of "attachment parenting", the cover photo features Jamie Lynne Grumet and her son Aram, who turns 4 in June. In an accompanying interview, the 26-year-old mother said, "People have to realize this is biologically normal. The more people see it, the more it'll become normal in our culture. That's what I'm hoping. I want people to see it."

Report: Britney Spears Signs Up as 'The X Factor' Judge

 One vacant seat on "The X Factor (US)" may have been occupied. After circling the show in the last few months, Britney Spears reportedly signed the deal this week to join the sophomore season of the singing competition.

"The contract is signed," a so-called insider told E! Online. "There's been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she's on. It's all completed and Britney is beyond excited."

Rihanna Rocks Booty Shorts in Cheeky Photo Shoot for Terry Richardson

She flaunts her sexy body in a plain white tied-up tee to reveal her flat tummy. She pairs it with a pair of daisy dukes that show off her legs.

The new black-and-white pictures were unleashed by the photographer amidst report that Riri was briefly hospitalized for flu-like symptons. The "We Found Love" hitmaker posted a picture of her arm hooked on an IV drip when one of her Twitter followers asked her, "What da fuxx good?! You been quiet all day."

Riri was reported by MediaTakeOut that she was exhausted after a night of "hard partying" at MET Gala, but a source from TMZ said that was not the case. The source claimed the singer had already got ill last week and went to see a doctor last Thursday. She hadn't fully recovered by the time of her performance on "Saturday Night Live".

Over the weekend, Riri did inform her fans on Twitter that she was unwell. "Phuck bein sick!" the Grammy-winning singer wrote on her page. "Seriously, I'm sick! Don't wake me up for dumb s**t like that." She was at the time rumored to have angered "SNL" producers for missing the dress rehearsal.

Riri's rep explained that she "was sick and needed to save her voice for the live show." A doctor reportedly visited her in the dressing room and gave her a shot of penicillin before the gig, but the producers didn't buy her excuse and insisted she didn't appear ill enough. She herself re-tweeted one cryptic message that read, "My silence is my self defense, signed #Pisces."

After a few days of recovery, Riri was back looking healthy when coming to this year's MET Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. She looked lovely in a stretchy black Tom Ford dress. "My ride home," she tweeted along with a picture of her on an airport runway. "NY days LA nights."

It was said that the man, who works at Kunis' house, had bitten through his tongue, and he was choking, coughing up blood and vomiting.

Per the gossip site, the former girlfriend of Macaulay Culkin volunteered to ride in the ambulance when the paramedics arrived on scene. It was noted, however, that it wasn't necessary. Police sources further claimed that the man has since made a full recovery.

News of Kunis' merit came shortly after a stalker who has "terrorized" her for several months was arrested on Friday, May 4.

On how she and Perry got to watch Tupac up close, the "Snow White and the Huntsman" star recalled, "I walked behind her through ... she wanted to sit up front. She's like, 'Hey, you want to go watch the Tupac stuff? It will be awesome.' I was like, 'Yeah!' And then suddenly I realized, 'What are you doing to me?' "

Stewart continued on, "And then I had to put my hat down because we were literally like Moses parting the waves of Coachella getting to the front. I was like, 'Where am I right now?' " Asked by Kimmel, "You were in Katy Perry's wake?", the actress responded by gushing, "I was her entourage. I was leading her entourage. It was ridiculous."

Stewart herself was photographed at the 2012 Coachella Music Festival on April 21, the second day of the festival's second weekend. She was seen sporting a red American Eagle's Midi shorts, a concert bra corset, a grey tank and a Baltimore Orioles cap without rumored boyfriend, Robert Pattinson.

Box Office Shocker: 'Avengers' Opens to Record Shattering $200.3 Million

Joss Whedon's The Avengers has set a new bar in opening to a walloping $200.3 million at the domestic box office, the largest debut ever and kicking of summer 2012 in high style.
The Avengers -- marking a major victory for Disney and Marvel Studios -- easily dethroned Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which opened to $169.2 million last summer, then the largest number in history.
Overseas, where Avengers opened a week ago, the tentpole has earned $441.5 million for a stunning worldwide total of $641.8 million -- already surpassing the lifetime totals of Captain America: The First Avenger ($364 million), Thor ($449 million), Iron Man ($585 million) and Iron Man 2 ($624 million).
The 3D tentpole is now positioned to reach $1 billion in global grosses.
Among other records, Avengers is the first film in history to cross $200 million in only three days of play at the domestic box office. It also scored the biggest Saturday gross of all time in earning $69.7 million.
"It's been a fantastic weekend on every single front," Disney executive vice president of distribution Dave Hollis said.
Hollis said the slim 13 percent drop from Friday to Saturday reflects great word of mouth, as well as the fact that all segments of the audience are turning out, including families. Roughly 52 percent saw it in 3D.
The tentpole played evenly in terms of age, with 50 percent of the audience under the the age of 25 and 50 percent over. Couples made up 55 percent, families 24 percent and teens 21 percent. Males represented 60 percent of the audience.
Avengers -- which assembles marquee Marvel superhero characters Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) -- earned an A+ CinemaScore.
IMAX theaters reported record business, generating north of $15 million in ticket sales domestically to tie with Deathly Hallows Part 2 for the biggest opening weekend in the circuit's history. IMAX expects to finish the weekend with a worldwideume of $31.2 million.
Avengers is the first Marvel title marketed and distributed by Disney since buying Marvel. Paramount distributed Marvel's previous films and, in exchange for ending its output deal early with Marvel, will received as much as $115 million in distribution fees for Avengers and next summer's Iron Man 3.
Avengers was the only wide release of the weekend. At the specialty box office, Fox Searchlight looked to counterprogram with The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which opened in 27 theaters in 12 markets. Marigold grossed $750,301 for a pleasing per location average of $27,789.
Fox Searchlight's Sheila DeLoach said the film -- which has already a stellar $72 million overseas -- succeeded in luring baby boomers, evidenced by sold out matinee and early evening shows. Marigold stars Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Tom Wilkinson.

Salma Hayek's Difficult Pregnancy Disclosed at Linda Evangelista's Child Support Trial

 The drama behind Salma Hayek's first pregnancy was uncovered in the court battle over child support between her husband Francois-Henri Pinault and supermodel Linda Evangelista. On the second day of the trial, Pinault was grilled about why he postponed formally recognizing Evangelista's son Augustin as his own in 2007.

Sharing his side of the story in Manhattan Family Court, the 49-year-old French billionaire said on Friday, May 4, "What prevented me from...legally recognizing...was that my wife was pregnant, and it was a very difficult pregnancy." He further revealed he and Hayek "almost lost" their unborn child, before pointing out, "In fact, we were told the baby had Down syndrome until late May 2007."

Pinault then admitted that it was the "very complicated situation" that led him to ask Evangelista "to delay the legal recognition process [of Augustin] until after the birth of [his daughter with Hayek] Valentina." On how the supermodel took his request, the chief executive officer of PPR said, "She understood, of course." He also said that he was thankful to her for that.

Evangelista also took the stand on Friday. Dressed in a white pencil skirt, the Canadian model opened up about her humble beginnings. She recalled that she had her first taste of work at the age of 12 when she began picking cherries to buy herself a bike. She also detailed about her other jobs during high school, which included being a "teller in the Hollywood wax museum" in Niagara.

A day before Evangelista testified, her lawyer William Beslow told the court that Pinault suggested that the supermodel should get an abortion after learning about her pregnancy. Pinault himself said that he "was not involved in the decision of having the baby," before adding, "I told her that I would recognize the baby ... and I will take my responsibility."
