Something Borrowed Movie Review: Your Typical Chick Flick Runs A Bit Long

I caught an advance screening of Something Borrowed, the movie based on the novel by chick lit best selling author Emily Giffin (one of my faves!). I read the book and loved it, so did I feel the same about the movie version? Read my review below. Tagline – “Friendships are tested and secrets come to the surface when terminally single Rachel falls for Dex, her best friend Darcy’s fianc�.” If you’ve seen the trailers for this movie, you pretty much get the gist of what happens in the flick. I don’t think it’s really necessary to warn you of my spoiler alert coming up next, right? In a normal world, many aren’t very accepting of the notion that a BFF would sleep with her best friend’s fiance, how could one do that, right? In the book, which was wonderfully written, I found myself actually cheering Rachel on. I read it in a day because I couldn’t wait to find out what happens in the end. Ginnifer Goodwin stars as Rachel, the good girl, and Kate Hudson as her obnoxious and self-centered BFF, Darcy. They have been friends since childhood. They attend different colleges, and it is in law school [...]

'Conan The Barbarian' Is A 'Revenge Story,' Jason Momoa Says

'I've never played a role that was played by someone else,' star tells MTV News of Arnold Schwarzenegger's version.

"There's nothing tongue-in-cheek about it at all," Stephen Lang told us about the "Conan the Barbarian" reboot in which he co-stars. His point was that even unapologetic fans of Arnold Schwarzenegger's over-the-top films have to admit that, by the time Hall of Fame center Wilt Chamberlain popped up in 1984's "Conan the Destroyer," the franchise had veered from campily charming to just plain silly.

With Jason Momoa slipping into the title role, Lang promised, this new "Conan" would have more in common with Robert E. Howard's swashbuckling original stories than the Governator's movies. That's certainly the impression we've received from early photos and a teaser trailer, and that's exactly what Momoa himself told us when MTV News caught up with him recently. In fact, the 31-year-old hasn't even seen those earlier films.

"I've never played a role that was played by someone else," he said. "As an actor, to build the character, I wanted to use my imagination and be creative and use my own interpretation."

Thus, Momoa dove into Howard's source material, "Conan" comic books, and the lush artwork of Frank Frazetta. "Both my parents were painters," Momoa said. "You look at those paintings, and you don't need to read a story. You just know that dude is bad."

The flick is set to hit theaters August 19, and as part of MTV News' Summer Movie Preview, we're not only rolling out an exclusive photo of Momoa in character, but had the actor lay out what we can expect to see up onscreen.

"It kind of is an origin story," he said. "It's rebuilding and rebooting the franchise. It starts with his birth, what happened to his family, what happened to his father — obviously his father is killed — and him going into the pirating and the thieving and wandering and being the degenerate that he is and then usurping a throne and finding out who killed his father. It's a revenge story, with a little bit of love in there."

And while Momoa hasn't "actually seen the Arnold stuff," as he put it, he can't wait to finally check it out. "I want to see mine and then I'm going to watch that one — back to back!" he laughed.

It's Summer Movie Preview Week, and MTV News will be bringing you exclusive interviews, clips and photos for the most anticipated films of the coming months. Get ready to gorge on inside looks at "Captain America," "The Hangover Part II," "X-Men: First Class," "Cowboys & Aliens" and more.

Check out everything we've got on "Conan the Barbarian."

Paul Walker Says Brazilian People Were 'Excited' To Host 'Fast Five'

'I love to travel, and that's one of those places that, on my own, I would have never have ventured,' he tells MTV News.
By Kara Warner

For those heading to the theaters this weekend to see the action-packed, souped-up-car-gasmic "Fast Five," there are only a few things you should know going in: The cast is teeming with members from all four previous films (Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris are all back) and the movie was filmed all over the world, including in Puerto Rico, Arizona, Georgia and California, but mainly in and around the illustrious city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil — including the storied and dangerous favela districts.

When MTV News caught up with Walker, we asked him how the crew managed to get clearance to film in such tough areas.

"That's the best part about the job, is we have a VIP card," Walker said of the production's exempt status. "For most people, especially the tourists, the favela is off limits, but we got permission basically from the drug lords to come up there and film," he revealed. "We got cops with us, but everyone knows the reason we're there isn't because the cops said, 'Go ahead and come up and in'; it's the cooperation with the drug lords."

Walker said he hung out with people from the area, as did the film crew, and everyone had a great time during the shoot.

"That's one of the best aspects of my job. I'm up there hanging out, and the people are friendly and I don't have anything to worry about. People are just excited we're there," he said. "I love to travel, and that's one of those places that, on my own, I would have never have ventured, but because we're here doing this, it made it all possible."

'Housewives' Spin-Offs For NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak?

'Housewives' Spin-Offs For NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak?

The women of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are busy filming season 4, which so far has included a baby shower for Kim Zolciak. Meanwhile, the show's two biggest stars -- arch enemies NeNe Leakes and Zolciak -- are in talks to headline their own spin-off series on Bravo, sources tell The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Leakes' series would follow her as she moves to L.A. and tries to break into Hollywood; Zolciak's series would chronicle her life with NFL player Kroy Biermann and their new baby.

Of course, the network doesn't want them both to leave the mother show; they are the two most prominent personalities of the group, after all.

But keeping them both in the original show may be even more problematic. "The two no longer trust each other, much less like each other," writes The Atlanta Journal Constitution's radio and TV blogger Rodney Ho. "This dynamic must be creating challenges for Bravo producers shooting season four, since they want to maximize interaction among the six cast members while Kim and NeNe probably want to spend as little time face to face as possible."

Odds are that Leakes would be the one to make the break for good. Like Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York, Leakes has parlayed her Houswives notoriety into other Hollywood gigs -- such as her current, high-profile stint on The Celebrity Apprentice -- and exploited the media exposure at every turn. That includes a big-time feud with Star Jones, which spilled over beyond the reality series when Leakes made the talk show rounds, complaining about Jones.

No doubt, some may say that The Real Housewives franchise has reached a saturation point, and there's no need for another spin-off. But producers can simply point out that The Real Housewives of Atlanta is the most popular one of all of them. Since it averages about 4 million viewers a week, largely on the draw of stars like Zolciak and Leakes, then maybe these women could carry their own shows. As far as TV execs are concerned, there's only one way to find out.

Royal Wedding Party: Uniforms, Hats and Bows

Royal Wedding Party: Uniforms, Hats and Bows

We now know what the bride wore, and now we present you with the details of what the wedding party wore!

Like Princess Catherine, her sister, Pippa Middleton, wore a dress designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The cowl-front gown was made of ivory satin-based crepe, and it included the same buttons and lace trims as the bride's gown.

As for the groom, Prince William wore an Irish Guards Mounted Officer’s uniform with a red jacket and a gold and crimson sash. His brother and best man, Prince Harry, wore a Blues and Royals officer’s uniform.

Meanwhile, the adorable young bridesmaids accompanying the newly minted Duchess of Cambridge during her wedding were decked out in dresses highlighted by big bows in the back.

The girls -- Lady Louise Windsor, 7, the Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones, 8, and 3-year-olds Grace van Cutsem and Eliza Lopes -- wore handmade dresses designed by Nicki Macfarlane using the same fabrics as Princess Catherine's gown. The ballerina-length dresses with box-pleated skirts were ivory over white satin gazar topped by English cluny lace, with four layers of netting underneath.

The puff sleeves and neckline were trimmed with the same English lace as Middleton's underskirt, and the backs feature the same buttons. Completing the look were pale gold silk sashes tied in the back with a bow. The lining of the dresses were embroidered with each bridesmaid's name and the date of the wedding.

As for shoes, the girls wore Mary Janes made of satin and sporting a Swarovski crystal buckle. The little ones wore wreaths in their hair composed of ivy and lily of the valley.

The two page boys -- Tom Pettifer, 8, and William "Billy" Lowther-Pinkerton, 10 -- were dressed in miniature uniforms in the style of Foot Guards officers worn at the time of the Regency (1820s), including gold and crimson sashes with tassels around their waists.

Last but not least, Queen Elizabeth II wore a yellow dress and coat of wool crepe. The dress had beading at the neck in the shape of sunrays and onto her coat was pinned Queen Mary’s "True Lovers Knot" broach. Her yellow crepe hat was adorned with handmade silk roses and apricot-colored leaves.
