Alicia Keys And Jack White May Perform On James Bond-Themed X Factor by Devin Zydel
I hate The X Factor as much as the next person with any taste, but this could be fun. Well, a chance to hear the new theme would be good at least.

Hellboy defeats Batman in cinemas
(from BBC News)
"Comic book movie Hellboy II: The Golden Army has knocked The Dark Knight off the number one spot in the UK and Ireland box office chart. [It] took £2.97m on its opening weekend." Hardly a huge haul, but then TDK (which finally dropped from first down to fourth) is in its fifth week.

New Pics From Oliver Stone’s W by Glen Ferris
(from Empire Online)
A preview of Empire's preview of Oliver Stone's forthcoming film W.. Stone says that Bush is "a circular character; even now he harkens back to who he was in 2000. His speeches are the same. There doesn’t seem to be a growth. There’s a fundamental inability in the man, a King Lear kind of hubris, where he can’t admit to any fault, whereas Nixon [the subject of Stone's previous Presidential biopic] seems to have been genuinely haunted by doubt and uncertainty. As a result, this is a very different type of movie. While Nixon was a very rich meal, this is more of a soufflĂ©. And with a soufflĂ©, you never quite know until it bakes." And it will be baked & served on November 7th in the UK.
