Over the weekend thanks to a continued strong performance in Japan, Frozen became the number one animated movie of all time at the global box office, overtaking Toy Story 3. It now stands at number 10 on the all-time list and will end up with over $1.1 billion.

It’s not bad for a movie that six months ago had relatively little buzz. The film came as a surprise to many, as evidenced by how its box office worked. It got a pretty good but not spectacular opening (it wasn’t even the number 1 film in the US on the weekend it got its wide release), but then continued to play in cinemas for months, due the fact it had such amazing word of mouth.

Kristen Bell Gets A Veronica Mars Movie Poster & Pics

veronica-mars-poster1
A few days ago we got the first trailer for the Veronica Mars movie, and now it’s been followed up by a poster and a couple of images from the film. There’s been a lot of interest in the movie, as after talking about it for years, Kristen Bell and creator Rob Thomas finally got it made after a huge crowdfunding campaign.

The show followed Veronica (Kristen Bell) who ended up working as a PI after her best friend got killed. In the film she’s now a lawyer, but gets pulled back into the world of investigations when her old flame Logan (Jason Dohring) is accused of murder.

From what we’ve seen, it looks like it’ll have plenty to please fans, although we’ll have to see whether other people are interested when it’s released later this year.

Veronica Mars Movie Trailer – Take your first look at the TV character’s big screen adventure


Veronica Mars was never that popular on TV when it ran from 2004-2007, but those who liked it absolutely loved it, which resulted in a Kickstarter campaign to get a movie version made getting over 900,000 backers. That resulted in a quick greenlight and soon Kristen Bell and co. were on the set making the film.

Now they’ve used Comic-Con to reveal the first trailer for the film, and fans will be pleased to hear it’s a long one.

The promo is certainly fan-bait, showing this will retain the show of the TV show, while opening things up a bit, and offering interviews with the cast and crew to help those who don’t know the series, which follows the titular character, a young woman who becomes a bit of a private eye.

It’ll hit cinemas in 2014.

Dax Shepard And Kristen Bell Celebrate The End Of DOMA With Twitter Proposal

Kristen-Bell-and-Dax-Shepard
There was a lot to cheer yesterday when the US Supreme Court struck down key parts of DOMA (the Defense Of Marriage Act), meaning that the United States Federal Goverment could no longer deny  benefits to same sex couple who were legally married. They also refused to hear a case involving Prop 8, the ordinance that banned equal marriage in California, meaning that same sex weddings are likely to begin there again soon.

One couple who were celebrating were Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, who’ve long been staunch supporters of gay marriage and vowed not to marry themselves until that right was also extended to gay couples.

After the rulings, Bell tweeted, ‘.@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove’

While gay marriage still isn’t legal throughout the US, Bell obviously feels the SCOTUS decisions are strong enough that she can now marry Shepard with a clear conscience, especially now that the way has been cleared for gay people in California to marry.

Indeed, many now see equal marriage as somewhat of an inevitability throughout the US. There are still numerous obstacles to that, not least that while 13 states allow same sex marriage, there are more than that which specifically proscribe it, often within their individual constitutions. That’s not a  complete block, as some states that once had bans (such as Connecticut) now allow same sex marriage, while others that specifically ban same sex marriage are on the road to overturning that, by retaining a ban on the word marriage but providing unions with rights similar to marriage.

Even Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who has long been the Court’s most unpleasant hater of all things gay has said he thinks equal marriage in the US is now inevitably, no matter how much he personally dislikes that.

And with Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell now likely to marry, will Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie now follow suit? They previously said they were waiting for equal marriage but that was getting more difficult to hold to. Perhaps now they’ll decide the time is right.
