If you're in the mood for something extremely sexy, then don't watch this (NSFW) video of Gilbert Gottfried reading aloud from Fifty Shades of Grey. Unless you're really into that sort of thing. This is a judgment-free zone.

We already knew that Bill Murray was the coolest human alive (maybe ever). His recent red carpet promenade for "Moonrise Kingdom" is like a master class on how to put in a memorable appearance without taking yourself too seriously (also, on how to clash your plaids so badly that it all sort of actually works).

Red Bull Media House -- yes, you read that correctly, the energy drink has film aspirations -- will produce a 3-D "adaptation" of Oliver Twist set in the present day in which Twist and the other boys are really into parkour. If they're looking for a tagline, I suggest this line from the AVClub: "the energy drink that gives you both wings and ideas on how to improve classic literature."

Congratulations: The new Ridley Scott "Blade Runner" film has been officially declared a sequel! And it's a girl -- or rather, the main character will be female. Between this and Scott's revisiting of "Alien" via "Prometheus," I'm starting to wonder if he'll find a way to get Thelma and Louise back together. Prequel anyone?
