Pam Anderson Stars in New Westwood Campaign

Pamela Anderson for Vivienne Westwood

Pam Anderson poses alongside Vivienne Westwood and her husband Andreas Kronthaler for the designer’s Gold Label collection.

In a myriad of colors, fabrics, and patterns that is so very Vivienne, the trio playfully present the line in a non-typical ad campaign fashion (check out more pictures after the jump).

This will be the second time Westwood picked Anderson to promote her line—last season, the Playboy cover girl walked the Milan and London catwalks on top of fronting the Spring/Season campaign.

Tru Blood bottles

How do you like your synthetic blood? At a nice 98.6 degrees—or chilled on ice? Later this month, HBO will be shipping out bottles of Tru Blood, a soda version of the drink consumed by vampires on .

While the fake stuff on the program is created by Japanese inventors, the at-home version actually consists of blood…blood orange flavoring, that is. According to the product’s description, the beverage is “slightly tart, lightly sweet and subtly carbonated.” Several recipe suggestions are also provided including “The Fangbanger” and “Death on the Beach.”

The 14 oz. bottles can be pre-ordered before the September 28 availability date. Four-packs will be sold for $16 each. (That does not include shipping charges.)

iPhone MMS officially launches September 25, misses “late summer” target

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Cell Phones,

iPhone 3GS MMS

It’s official, MMS is coming to the 3G and 3GS on September 25th, according to AT&T. For those keeping track, that pushes the promise of “late summer” back to “early fall” since technically, summer ends on September 22nd. On the surface, it seems like not such a big deal, but it is just another straw that is being added to the camel’s back as it pertains to AT&T. Many suspected that MMS would go live on September 9th, alongside the Apple iPod event scheduled for that day. Hey, better late than never, right?

Dead Space Extraction Interview and Footage

The Dead Space franchise is headed to the Nintendo with Dead Space Extraction. earlier today, Visceral Studio announced that the game, which launches in the US on September 29, has gone gold. They’ve released a boss trailer, along with interview snippets with the developers of the game, detailing what we should expect from the Wii version of Dead Space. Hit the video for the full scoop, but here’s a hint: just because this is a Wii title, don’t expect the horror elements to be any less impressive than they were in the original. We’re excited.

The Return of Beavis and Butthead

Are there two people better equipped to discuss a film than Beavis and Butthead?

In this clip, the animated characters - best known from Judge’s classic MTV series - give us a brief synopsis of what to expect from the new film .

“In this movie, you have a chick with big boobs, a dude who gets his nuts knocked off and then a dude who gets paid to have sex. Oh yeah - and then there’s a bunch of bottles of extract too,” Butthead explains.

Sound appealing? Then be sure to check the film out when it opens this Friday, September 4.

First Look: Clooney and Bridges Staring at Goats

Considering George Clooney‘s upcoming film, The Men Who Stare at Goats, centers around cloud-busting, flying, Jedi-trained psychic killers hired by the government, I’m shocked that I haven’t heard about this film sooner.

With Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, and J.K. Simmons rounding off the cast, I can’t say that I disagree with E! as they dub this movie the “Greatest Film Ever Made.” The goats drop when the eccentric comedy hits theaters November 6.

Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Review (with video!)

Snow Leopard Review

Mac owners, the time for upgrading is upon as, as Mac OS X 10.6 is now available on a worldwide basis. If you didn’t know that there was a new operating system from today, we wouldn’t blame you, because it’s kind of been released without much fanfare. You see, Snow Leopard is all about fine tuning, refining, and improving upon OS X 10.5 Leopard. It’s a makeover that, at first glance, seems underwhelming because the majority of the changes occur “under the hood” so to speak.

So, what can you expect? Well, if you’ve used an iPhone 3G and an iPhone 3GS, think of it in those terms. They are really pretty much the same product, but the 3GS is much snappier, and has a couple of new features that the 3G doesn’t have, namely a better camera and a compass. Comparing Snow Leopard to Leopard is similar - you get speed, things feel faster, and potential is unlocked for the future, because there are some cool things that third-parties can tap into now.

Not everything is under the hood, though. You will see a few UI tweaks, like Dock Expose, right-click dock menus, Finder icons, and the like. We will cover all of those in more detail, but again, that isn’t the focus here. If you are underwhelmed right now, read on, because there is a lot to be excited about. At the very least, though, understand that upgrading to Snow Leopard will cost you just $29. Now that we have your attention, let’s move on. We’ve got videos for you, after the break.

Disney Buys Marvel for $4 Billion

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories:

Iron Man scene at the Walt Disney Concert Hall an early sign?

As if Disney didn’t own much of our childhood already, the media conglomerate has now spent an estimated $4 billion to acquire Marvel Entertainment, marking the deal as its largest since attaining Pixar in 2006.

Of the whopping $4 billion the company shelled out to obtain the comic book powerhouse, Chief Financial Officer Tom Staggs points out that any great venture is worth the price tag: “You can’t expect to pay a bargain price for premium assets. Marvel is worth more inside Disney than outside Disney.”

Volturi Profiled in New Moon Pics

New Moon

In these photos released by Summit Entertainment, we’re finally getting a chance to see those other vampires: the Volturi of Volterra.

It probably would have been hard to look away from Taylor Lautner’s new physique, it it wasn’t for those piercing red eyes. Thanks to specially-crafted eyewear, you too could look as intimidating as the normally-angelic (Jane).

“They’re all hand-painted, specially manufactured contacts,” director Chris Weitz told People. “They’re opaque red, almost like preying mantis eyes. You can’t really see into them. There’s something terribly off-putting about it.” (Ya think?)

Avatar posterIt’s never too early to start buying Christmas presents…or ordering movie tickets.

James Cameron’s 3D sci-fi entry received good worth of mouth after an extended preview on IMAX screens last week. (You can view a teaser trailer here.) It was this overwhelming interest that prompted the theater chain to begin advance purchases.

“They said that if all these people are going to come to our theater to see 16 minutes of a film that doesn’t open until December, let’s give them an opportunity to buy tickets to the first performances of the show itself,” Chris Aronson, Fox’s Senior VP of Distribution, said.

Since the film’s running time hasn’t been confirmed, only midnight viewings are available at this time. Avatar opens on December 18.
