Brace Yourself: The New Victoria’s Secret Ad Campaign Is Here

Published July 31, 2013 by gossipzoo

Summer’s about to get a little hotter.

Victoria’s Secret models Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton and Barbara Pavin are fronting the lingerie powerhouse’s latest ad campaign and – in true VS fashion – there’s a plenty of skin to go around.

In the spread, Swanepoel and Palvin both slip into the brand’s skimpy skivvies while Heatherton heads to the beach for some bikini fun.

This being a Victoria’s Secret, everyone’s also all strangely topless as well. Are they selling handbras now?

Launch the gallery above for the season’s latest catalog.

Lady Gaga Goes Shirtless In NYC

Published July 31, 2013 by gossipzoo

Lady Gaga left little to the imagination as she strutted the streets of her hometown on Thursday.

The 27-year-old pop star was spotted in New York City donning a lacy black bra with no top, tight skirt, and sky-high black boots.

Paging Sue Ellen Mischke.

Gaga isn’t a stranger to revealing outfits – she rocked a booty-baring fishnet dress just a few short weeks ago. Looking good, Gags.

The “Born This Way” singer has been out of the spotlight since undergoing hip surgery earlier this year, but we’re glad she’s back up to head-turning style choices.

Mother Monster’s first post-op performance was at New York City’s Gay Pride Rally in June, where she sung her heart out with an a capella rendition of The National Anthem. Check it out, below.






‘Union Jack Man’ Terry Hutt And ASDA Supermarket Are So Ready For The Royal Birth

Published July 30, 2013 by gossipzoo

One thought nothing could top the hoopla surrounding 2011 s royal wedding (Teabags! Condoms! Happyland Play Set!), but it turns out everyone’s gone mad for Baby Cambridge.

He-who-has-stolen-my-heart Terry Hutt, a 77-year-old royalist from Cambridge, sits outside St. Mary’s Hospital in hopes of congratulating the Duke and Duchess on their new addition.

Hutt, whom Queen Elizabeth has described as “The Union Jack man” for his festively patriotic attire, arrived in head-toe-toe Britannia yesterday. He met Her Majesty twenty years ago, when he tried his luck at visiting Clarence House.

“They’re my colours and she’ll always talk to me; we’ve talked about her mum before,” Hutt told Cambridge News back in November.

The grandfather-of-three has been a royalist every since meeting King George VI and his wife, the Queen Mother during the Blitz. However, it was William and Harry’s late mother that Hutt admires the most.

“Diana was one of my favourite members of the royal family,” Hutt, who held a vigil for Catherine outside King Edward VII hospital in December, told the paper. “She brought a difference to them, she modernised them and she had time for everyone.”

Don’t me cry, Mr. Hutt.

Meanwhile, up in Wales…

Asda Supermarket, where the DoC has been spotted shopping for dinner on occasion, created a prime parking spot especially for the growing family.

“To celebrate the impending birth of Prince William and Kate’s baby, we decided, with the Llangefni store being their local, that we would reserve a parking space especially for them,” a spokesperson told North Wales’ Daily Post.

“Kate has been spotted in the store a few times so we wanted to make life a bit easier for her. We also wanted to do something a bit different and special to celebrate the new arrival.”

Why can’t we get this weird in America?

“It’s created a lot of excitement amongst our customers who, like us are looking forward to the birth of the royal baby.”

Too right, spokesperson. Too right.

Ratchet And Clank: Into The Nexus Announced

Published July 29, 2013 by gossipzoo

9257807616_75db80c650_z_zpsaa1dfb10

Gore dominated 3rd person shooter Fuse apparently didn’t pan out like Insomniac had hoped. I’m also skeptical of their wacky open world Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive, furthermore, the franchise itself of Ratchet and Clank has been dwindling in quality and appeal itself. Part of that is due to some really odd design choices like 4 player co-op games and tower defense. It is almost hard to believe but the last time we have seen an old fashioned traditional Ratchet game was in 2009 with A Crack In Time.

It’s time to end the Future story arc with a bang though!

Into The Nexus appears to be returning to the series roots while cranking everything up a notch. Much of the plot can’t be gauged just yet although evidently Ratchet and Clank find themselves on a scary planet after transferring some villains goes wrong. The trailer gives us a glimpse of some new weapons including a gun that morphs enemies into snowmen. Yeah, you read that correctly. Clank also can now tether himself to objects expanding on the platforming. Zero gravity sequences will also be present. Insomniac also promises that multiple beloved characters will return. Personally, since it has Captain Quark being a loveable and gullible idiot, I’m already sold.

All in all, it is a solid game reveal that looks to not only be getting the franchise back on track, but Insomniac as a development studio. As of right now the game is slated for a Fall release exclusively on PS3 although it’s possible that a Vita version may come at a later date. Are you excited for Into The Nexus? Or have recent mediocre Insomniac games and subpar spinoffs killed your interest for the franchise? Let us know in the comments!

Fantastic Four Reboot: 5 Ways To Make Sure It Doesn’t Suck

Published July 29, 2013 by gossipzoo

fantastic-four

The Fantastic Four film franchise is undergoing a reboot that will see a fresh attempt at putting the heroic quarter on the big screen. 20th Century Fox’s film is tentatively due for a release in March of 2015 and early word is it could share continuity with the X-Men series of films, opening up the possibility of crossover movies.

Sadly, previous attempts at Fantastic Four movies sucked big time, so comic book and comic book movie fans are understandably apprehensive about whether or not a reboot should even be attempted.

However, if Fox are intent on giving it another shot, they simply must avoid making the same mistakes as the previous lame efforts.

With that in mind, here are five ways to make sure a Fantastic Four reboot doesn’t suck…

5. Get Doctor Doom Right

Doom

The previous Fantastic Four movies turned arguably the greatest comic book villain of all time in to arguably the worst comic book movie villain of all time.

Seriously, Julian McMahon’s Victor Von Doom was appalling and soiled Doctor Doom’s legacy in a truly shameful way.

Victor Von Doom should be imposing, intimidating, formidable, versed in physical combat, technological excellence and the mystic arts and should have a bellowing voice that makes people tremble. His powers should also have nothing to do with the same cosmic exposure that granted the Fantastic Four their abilities.

Essentially, don’t make the new Doom ANYTHING like the last feeble attempt. Literally EVERYTHING about it was wrong.

Star Wars Episode 7: 10 Ways It Will Resemble JJ Abrams’ Star Trek

Published July 28, 2013 by gossipzoo

There has been much buzz this week over the fact that J.J. Abrams’ hugely-anticipated Star Wars Episode VII is pulling a no-show at next week’s San Diego Comic-Con, though a glimmer of hope appears in the fact that Disney has confirmed a pronounced Star Wars presence at their D23 conference in August.

Though we have no idea how much info – if any – about the impending sequel will be revealed at the event which runs from August 9th to 11th, it means that for the next month, we’re left speculating completely in the dark about what Episode 7 may offer.

With Abrams at the helm, much attention has been pointed to the fact that he has also helmed two Star Trek movies to date, and Star Wars fans remain nervous as to how this will impact their precious franchise. For better or for worse, here are 10 ways we can expect Abrams’ Episode 7 to resemble his acclaimed Star Trek flicks…

10. Sexiness

Star Trek Into Darkness

Princess Leia’s iconic golden metal bikini notwithstanding, the Star Wars franchise has always hewed away from sexing up its female characters, and given that all but one of the Star Wars movies has had a PG-rating, that seems somewhat appropriate.

Even in the PG-13-rated Revenge of the Sith, though, Natalie Portman’s Padme was kept well under wraps and not sexualised at all, something that’s likely going to change with Abrams’ more mature influence taking hold.

Firstly, we can expect that Episode 7 will follow Sith’s trend and be PG-13, also in line with Abrams’ Star Trek movies, which feature fantastical violence and the odd hint of female sexuality. If it’s not Zoe Saldana running around in figure-hugging outfits, then it’s Kirk’s sexual liaisons with aliens, or gratuitous underwear shots of female officers as above. While I doubt Abrams will take it to inappropriate levels, expect the female characters to be showing a little more skin and sexual confidence this time around…

10 (Other) Movies About Wrestling That Hollywood Needs To Make

Published July 27, 2013 by gossipzoo

hart mcmahon

Though they used to be once in a blue moon occasions, movies like Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler have managed to help shift the perception of professional wrestling in the mainstream sphere, even if that only relates to evoking more sympathy for these modern-day gladiators than simply mocking them.

This trend continues with the production of Crossface, a biopic of late WWE star Chris Benoit, and more prominently, Bennett Miller’s upcoming Foxcatcher, based on Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz’s autobiography and starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo.

As a wrestling fan, this got me thinking – what other shocking scandals and must-see wrestling stories haven’t made it to the big screen yet? Some of these may have limited audiences, while others have a broader-reaching appeal, but each certainly has an inherently cinematic quality that certainly warrants the big-screen treatment…

10. The Montreal Screwjob

The most infamous “storyline” in wrestling history remains easily its most controversial, as Bret Hart defended his WWF Title against Shawn Michaels at the Survivor Series 1997 and saw himself the victim of an attack from the puppet-master himself, Vince McMahon. McMahon had apparently agreed with Hart, who was soon to depart to WCW for a bigger pay-packet, that he wouldn’t have to drop the title on his home Canadian turf, and the match would end with a non-finish that allowed him to retain the title.

Bret was set to drop the title on RAW the next day, but Vince covertly had other plans, ordering Earl Hebner, who was also in on it, to ring the bell when HBK had The Hitman in his own Sharpshooter finisher. It was clear to everyone watching that Bret hadn’t tapped, and the fracas at ringside only made it more evident that something very strange had transpired indeed.

Once the details of the Screwjob became public, McMahon was an instantly reviled character, and ever the enterprising sort, he used this new-found hate to make himself an on-screen heel character going by the name of Mr. McMahon who has flourished ever since.

The Screwjob has been alluded to countless times ever since, and continues to divide wrestling fans down the middle.
