Here’s a quick look at what’s new at the local, over-priced multiplex this weekend . . .
“The Proposal” (PG-13)
A romantic comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. She plays an executive pretending to be engaged to her assistant to keep from being deported to Canada. He plays her fake fiancé, who ends up taking her to Alaska to meet his family, where they fall in love for real.
Craig T. Nelson and Mary Steenburgen play his parents and Betty White plays his fun-loving grandma . . . who takes advantage of wedding dress measurements to playfully cop a feel of Sandra Bullock’s breasts.)
Jack Black and Michael Cera play two hunter-gatherers who travel the ancient world after being banished from their village. It also stars “House” minx Olivia Wilde, “Superbad’s” McLovin’ Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Cross, Hank Azaria and Horatio Sanz.
Sounds like Chris Brown isn’t taking the news that Rihanna is seeing Drake too well.
Word on the street is: “Chris thought that he and Rihanna were just ‘taking a break’ until the court case was over. But now he hears that she’s seeing Drake — and she has her people leaking stories about her new man to the press… Drake may catch [a beating] when Chris sees him next.”
A California judge has rejected Chris Brown’s request to have his preliminary hearing delayed. That means both he and Rihanna must be in court on Monday to determine whether there’s enough evidence in his assault case to go to trial.
T.V. CAMERAS BANNED FROM RIHANNA’S TESTIMONY!
Rihanna is scheduled to testify at Chris Brown’s preliminary hearing on Monday, but we won’t get to watch it on TV.
Los Angeles Criminal Court Judge Patricia Schnegg ruled yesterday that cameras will not be allowed in the courtroom during Monday’s hearing.
Chances of this case being resolved with a plea deal seem pretty slim at this point. Prosecutors subpoenaed Rihanna to testify, indicating that they plan to move forward with the case.
Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, tried to delay the hearing with an appeal to the California Supreme Court. But the high court rejected Geragos’ request.
SOULJA BOY TELL’EM is performing at a couple big festivals this weekend, and also touring this summer with LIL WAYNE, YOUNG JEEZY, and DRAKE. But he wants you to know that he’s not intimidated by sharing the stage with anyone else.
He said recently, quote, “I don’t really look at nobody as competition. I feel like I got my own lane, and I don’t have to worry about nobody. Anybody I feel is competition, I gotta knock them out the box.
“If there’s anybody that ever crossed my mind I say, ‘Man, he might be a problem for me,’ then I’ma have to get rid of him.”
But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t RESPECT the competition. Take EMINEM as an example. Souljah said, quote, “I like his new music. It’s different from what’s out. I think it’s good. It’s good for music. I’d open up for Eminem . . . lot of cheese right there.
“He’s got some classic stuff. He used to come on TV. I used to be like, ‘That white boy go hard. Real hard.’
“But as far as getting my inspiration for stage performance, it has always been MICHAEL JACKSON. I remember I watched the DVD: Michael Jackson came and stood onstage for 10 minutes. They was screaming the whole 10 minutes.
“I actually imitated that a couple of times in my show.” ( He did!!???)
