Olivia Munn, mistress of the Attack of the Showniverse, gave us some early insight to what she's looking forward to at this year's Comic-Con, and when Olivia speaks, we listen.
Check out what she had to say.
Okay, so we’ve all read that model Kate Moss and junkie-rocker boyfriend Pete Doherty broke up, right?
And we can all assume based on the tabloids that while together they were on a drunken, drug-fueled tear that included violent sex, intravenous drug use, snorting Godknowswhat, and all sorts of other rockstar shenanigans, right?
Then can’t we make the leap that they likely videotaped these sexual escapades? I mean, we know they taped the drug use (we’ve all seen poor’ Kate snortin’ in da studio by now), so why not the screwin’?
Lorne Michaels is talking about producing a couple of reality shows surrounding Saturday Night Live. One of the shows would be a viewer vote on sketches in the dress rehearsal to see which of them makes it onto the live show. As you probably know, the SNL dress rehearsal is almost three hours long, and gets cut to make time for the show. You'd be able to vote on which sketches actually made it.
There's another idea in which the American people would be able to vote on the newest cast member. Seems like a good idea, until you realize that Americans are big Larry the Cable Guy fans. You never know who you're going to get. We have a better idea. How about we take SNL behind the shed and shoot it? It's time, you know? Or, you can compose a cast of the best of the still-living veterans of the show, at least for a season, doing the best sketches of the last 30 years.
Just an idea.
Roger Ebert has, by all accounts, very little time left on Earth, in this life anyway. So, why he would choose to use it rankling gamers is completely beyond us, yet that's exactly what he's doing. Seems Mr. Thumbs Up has decided that videogames aren't "high art," since the artist fails to see it through completion, and once a gamer gets a hold of the game, he changes the concept by playing it, therefore nullifying the art.
Oh, Roger. You done opened up a can of whoop-ass, and din't even know it, boy. Do you have any idea what happens to you when you piss off the gaming community? We sure do. Listen...you might wanna go underground for a while. Just in case. In the meantime, Gene Siskel did not say, from beyond the grave, "Roger's a tool. Always has been. If you can't look at Metal Gear Solid and consider it art, then you deserve to have a brick thrown through your hospice window."

With the release of The SImpson's Movie on July 27th, mania has ensued. The reality of Springfriend is coming to life. Have you been to a Kwik-E-Mart yet for a Duff Energy Drink or a Squishes? And is it me or is everyone wearing Springfield Bowling shirts around this place?
It is pretty impossible to go anywhere without seeing some form of Simpson's liscensing or another these days and last night The Feed was invited to The Wonderful World Art Gallery, the number one selling gallery of Fox liscensed art, for an event entitled Get Inked With Homer.
The long-awaited Wolverine film has taken one more step toward getting made, as Gavin Hood, the man who directed the 2005 Best Foreign Film Tsotsi, has been tapped to direct the feature. Hugh Jackman is on board, and the script is apparently right and ready, so we're close to getting shooting.
The film will apparently be a blend of the Wolverine origin story, with a heavy dose of Weapon X thrown in for good measure. Wolvie fans will most likely have a geekgasm when they hear that some of the source material will also include the Frank Miller Weapon X series. We await more news...with bated breath.

Drunken-actress-turned-drunken-menace-to-society Lindsay Lohan turned herself in to the fuzz Thursday to face drunk driving charges.
Lohan voluntarily entered the Beverly Hills police department around 4:00 p.m., gave fingerprints, took photographs and was released an hour later on $30,000 bail.
The charges stem from the Memorial Day Weekend car wreck that sent her to rehab. Tests revealed her blood alcohol level to be above the legal limit of 0.08 percent and found what they called a "usable amount" of cocaine in her car.
Aaron Sorkin (Studio 60, The West Wing) and Steven Spielberg (Amazing Stories, Tiny Toons) are teaming up to make three movies together in the not-too-distant future. Sorkin will be writing scripts, having sworn off television for the time being, and Spielberg will be producing and directing, you know, like he does.
The first of these films will be The Trial of the Chicago 7, which is the story of Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden, and the others who were arrested for their demonstrations at the Chicago Democratic Convention in 1968. We can only imagine the dialogue as Sorkin writes for hippies. Sign us up...for fun!

Here's a rundown of all the dopest, flyest most awesomest news that happened today.
G4tv.com tracked down our favorite director, Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) at last night's Crazy 4 Cult art show, and we got some hot details on his next two movies, Red State and Zach and Miri Make a Porno.
According to Smith, Red State takes place in an intentionally unnamed, conservative state, where religious fundamentalism has reached its logical conclusion. You guess it: It's a horror movie.
Smith also revealed that, although it hasn't been cast, he'd like Rosario Dawson to star in Zach and Miri Make A Porno. But don't take our word for it; click below to hear it from the man himself.
Oprah Winfrey has lost a beloved member of her family today, as Gracie, one of her golden retrievers, choked on a plastic ball belonging to another one of her dogs and died. This hits us at TheFeed especially hard as this is exactly the way dvinson, former TheFeed employee, lost her life on Friday afternoon.
Seems that popculturekilla, who'd been hiding out in the shadows, trying to avoid a hit from any number of hip-hop celebrities he made fun of, left his chew toy out, and dvinson couldn't help herself. She popped it in her mouth, and we found her, gagging and unable to breathe. Next thing you know, she's gone.
TheFeed would like to extend our sympathies to Oprah today. We certainly hope Michael Vick wasn't involved.

As you well know, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the final book in JK Rowling's saga of the boy wizard, will be out this weekend. You want leaks? Sure, we all do. The powers-that-be, however, are going to unprecedented lengths to make sure you know nothing before the time is right. What sort of lengths? We're glad you asked.
How about making workers do their thing in the dark, so that they couldn't read the book while they were working on it? Or keeping the manuscripts in alarmed pallets until the morning of its release? Apparently, only 20 people in the world know the fate of Harry and his friends, and everyone who comes in contact with the book has been made to sign a weighty legal agreement that damns them should anything be leaked.
In short, it's serious business. Still, the book will be out this weekend. If you could wait all this time to find out, what's a couple more days at this juncture?
Fresh out of rehab, Lindsay Lohan is involved in yet more drama.
No, she didn’t wrap her car around another tree or kill an innocent bystander…yet.
This time someone broke into her computer and stole pictures of her and her boyfriend...naked!
How did she discover the pillaging? The hacker was kind enough to leave a file on her desktop saying they had the pics of her with beau BF Calum.
“If I ever find out who broke into my computer,” she warned in a message on her site, “he’s in big sh*t.”
Notice she said, "He."
Since 2005, famous director Steven Spielberg has been talking about developing games with EA, and, now that E3 is only a day away, some of the details of those games have started to take shape. The two games, code named LMNO and PQRS, are very different entities, with PQRS being a puzzle game and LMNO being something a little more character-based.
The puzzle game, designed for the Wii, should be out sometime before the end of EA's fiscal year, but the other game will most likely not see the light of day until later in 2008. Of course, it wouldn't be Spielberg if there wasn't some sort of eye toward moving the projects across different media, such as movies and television, and, though they won't say exactly how, EA won't deny that it's part of the plan.
In the meantime, be on the lookout for new Spielbergian gaming news as events warrant.

Add to the list of people who think that Harry Potter will die in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Yes, Daniel Radcliffe, Mr. Potter on film himself, thinks that his character will be getting the ultimate sendoff in the last book. Now, he claims that he's had no advance word on what's going to happen in Deathly Hallows, and we believe him.
Still, it's a little weird that he's got an opinion, and that in the opinion, he refers to Harry as "I." As in, "I think I might die in it, but that’s just my prediction." Weird, eh? We thought so. At any rate, we're all going to find out next week, and that's going to be just fine.
