Harry Potter And Deathly Hallows tops Box Office again

Harry Potter And Deathly Hallows tops Box Office againThe wizard boy, Harry Potter had to fight with a fairy princess last weekend at the Box Office. Both of them had a close shave but finally the Potter movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 came out as the ultimate winner with a collection of $50.3 million over the Thanksgiving weekend.

'Tangled', the fairy tale of princess Rapunzel, was another Box Office favorite last weekend as the long-haired princess attracted millions with her charm in North America. The 3D animated movie earned $49.1 million within three days, which is much more than the industry expectation. It opened just one day before the U.S. ‘Thanksgiving Day’ so many preferred to enjoy the holiday with this charming princess.

According to the Warner Bros, the seventh Harry Potter movie sold tickets worth $163.5 million and the United States and Canada ruled with a earning of $50.3 million. In France, the 'Harry Potter' movie collected its best last week with $19.1 million, which is the best opening of the country this year.

It indicates that the Harry Potter fans are not at all bored with Harry's magical wand and they can watch it for next few years too, if there comes any other sequel. The final data of the last weekend shows 'Harry Potter' is still the ultimate ruler at the Box office and we can expect the success journey to continue for the next few more weeks too.


Munni gets Pak cops into trouble

Officers at a police station in Pakistan's Gujranwala district paid a heavy price for being enamoured with the Dabangg super-hit song Munni Badnam Hui when they were suspended Friday for forcing three female dancers to perform it at the police station.

Three dancers of a musical troupe in Lahore were on their way to Gujranwala to perform at a marriage ceremony, but officers of the Sadhoki police station stopped them at a checkpost midway and took them to the police station, Dunya TV reported.

Having arrested the dancers, the policemen were not ready to let go the opportunity to have some fun.

They asked the dancers to perform to the Malaika Arora hit song Munni Badnam Hui one by one. After having his wish fulfilled, the police station in-charge registered an FIR against the three dancers and detained them in a lock-up.

The dancers, who could not go home even after entertaining the police officers, were only released on bail after two days.

They filed a writ petition before the session judge who ordered an inquiry after listening to their plight.

The Regional Police Officer (RPO) Gujranwala, Tariq Masood Yaseen, after conducting an inquiry, has suspended the police station in-charge Abid Farooq and the entire staff, the channel said.

All of them have been detained in the same lock-up where they kept the dancers for two days while further investigation is underway.

Emma Watson stripped unnecessarily for Harry Potter

Emma Watson stripped unnecessarily for Harry PotterThis one is not for kids, even if Harry Potter has had a huge kids following, alongside the adult one! Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Part 1' actor Emma Watson has not shared an innocent kiss with her series co-star Daniel Radcliffe only. Daniel, in a candid show with music and entertainment channel MTV has shared that both himself and Emma had to strip for the scene!

While you may be screeching with the question “why did they do that!” after watching the movie, we are equally clueless! Daniel says that the day before they were to shoot it, his director had informed him of this weird idea of being naked. For grace’s sake or for sake of getting an all-age certificate, Emma was given a silver-colored bra for the shot.

And what does Daniel have to say about the scene and the chemistry they shared over it? He’s all cool. He’s gone to the extent of saying that the kiss was as simple as kissing his sibling only! Now that, we say, is some statement! Daniel, who has no sister of his own, says, the absence of one in his life makes him think it was so simple, and, passion-less!

But then, at another interview, he has said that Emma was all charged up and behaved like an ‘animal’ (you may read: passionate) while the scene was being shot. Well then, why this back-tracking Daniel?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie donate thousands to charity

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie donate thousands to charityBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $150,000 to a children's charity.

The couple gave the sum to SOS Children's Villages, USA - which supports adoptive families and highlights the needs of children without parental care - in recognition of National Adoption Day through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

Dr. Heath Paul, CEO of SOS Children's Villages, USA, said: "I am truly thankful that Angelina and Brad understand the power of family - the kind of stable family that SOS holds as an essential part of healthy child development.

Together, Angelina and Brad have been eye-witnesses to the great work of SOS Children's Villages in Ethiopia, Jordan, a Darfur refugee camp in Chad and Haiti. Angelina and Brad know that children's need for a family is universal.
The donation from the couple - who have adopted three children, Maddox, nine, Pax, six, and Zahara, five, as well as three other kids, Shiloh, four, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - will provide the long-term financial support needed for a family of four foster children in one of the US SOS Children's Villages.

Last year, the couple donated $100,000 to two of the organisation's centres in Florida and Illinois after being impressed by their work.

Angelina said of the generous gift: "We have seen firsthand the remarkable job SOS does to raise orphaned and abandoned children and keep families together. No one 'ages out' of an SOS Village: vocational training, advanced education, living assistance and moral support are there forever."

The SOS Villages house over 200 children and last Christmas Brad insisted it was important to show gratitude for the work the organisation does.

He said: "In this holiday season, many of us take for granted that we are surrounded by loving family members. The poor outcomes for foster children indicate that we must do a much better job of supporting them."

It was revealed last year Brad and Angelina donated $6.8 million to charity in 2008 after raising the money through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

They also had a few steamy scenes in the film, and Hathaway says she "totally fell apart" the first time they were expected to take their clothes off.

She shared how director Edward Zwick took off his clothes as well and climbed into bed with both actors to lighten the mood while shooting the sex scenes.

But the actors gradually became used to nudity in the film, says Gyllenhaal.

"We were, like, having fake sex and being like, 'Knock the pot off, knock the pot off'. I was not focusing on her at all and instead focusing on knocking the pot off for Ed (the director)," he added.

Gyllenhaal, 29, and Hathaway, 28, play respectively a Viagra pharmaceutical sales representative and a free-spirited woman in the film.

According to Gyllenhaal, they were naked 65 percent of the time while shooting the project.

Prince William gives Diana's ring to Kate

Prince William gave fiancee Kate Middleton his late mother Princess Diana's engagement ring because he didn't want her to miss out on his special day.

The future British king announced his engagement to his long-term girlfriend earlier today (16.11.10) after proposing last month and says he decided to give Kate the band his father Prince Charles gave the late Diana as his way of paying tribute to her.

When asked about the oval blue 18-carat sapphire and diamond ring, William said: "It was my way of making sure my mother didn't miss out on today."

Diana - who was divorced from Charles - died in 1997 in a Paris car crash and William and his brother Prince Harry often pay tribute to her.

It was my way of making sure my mother didn't miss out on today.

William and his new fiancee did a photo call at St James' Palace in London, where they showed off the stunning ring and Kate spoke about joining Britain's Royal Family.

She said: "It's quite a daunting prospect but hopefully I'll take it in my stride. William is a great teacher."

William's father Charles also spoke of his joy at the engagement and joked it had taken a long time as they had been together for eight years.

He said: "I'm thrilled, obviously. They've been practising long enough."

Kate's parents Michael and Carole said they were "absolutely delighted" and "thrilled" by the news.

Her father said: "We have got to know William really well, we all think he is wonderful and we are extremely fond of him.

"They make a lovely couple, are great fun to be with and we've had a lot of laughs together. We wish them every happiness for the future."
