- Taye Diggs and the so-hot-I-want-to-take-her-home Idina Menzel are expecting their first child. Yay!
- And Buffy/Angel stars Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof have just welcomed their new baby into the world. Aww!
- The excellent Paul Bettany is currently in talks to star as a vampire slaying priest in the horror western, Priest. There’s stranger films been made…I think.
- When Disney first announced that they would be rereleasing Beauty and the Beast in Digital 3D, I was very skeptical. But in a recent preview of the technique used to ‘enhance’ the movie, reviews were good. I remain apprehensive.
- In other 3D news, it seems Burton’s Alice in Wonderland will be released in IMAX 3D as well as in regular 2D format.
