The Truth is Out There? Russell Crowe Finds UFO and Has Video to Prove It...Or So He Says... 

Russell Crowe said he had a close encounter of the third kind and it's all caught on tape!

According to THR, the "Les Miserables" star saw the unidentified flying object while trying to catch fruit bats on camera over the Sydney Botanic gardens. The video is a series of time lapse pictures the actor posted on YouTube and his Twitter account yesterday.

Some folks were mocking the purported video evidence but take a look and you be the judge.

Next James Bond Movie? Director Sam Mendes Says NO! 

It's a shame!

"Skyfall" is the best James Bond Movie ever in my humble opinion (and also the biggest moneymaker of the franchise reaching $1.1 billion, that's with a b, worldwide), but its director, the visionary Sam Mendes, says he's not coming back for round 2. Awwww :sad

The Oscar-winning flick (best song for Adele and sound editing) tells Empire Magazine that directing "Skyfall" "was one of the best experiences of my professional life, but I have theater and other commitments, including productions of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and King Lear, that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond." Good enough reason. The man is more concerned about his art, and I like that! So he said no to producers Michael and Barbara Broccoli's "very generous offer."

But even though Mendes is out (and yes, even Dame Judi Dench too), the 24th Bond flick will have Daniel Craig back as our favorite British superspy and the script will be written by John Logan who co-wrote "Skyfall."

Mendes did say that he's open to return to the franchise in the future, if they'll have him again. So why don't the Broccoli's just wait until Mendes is done with his obligations?

River Phoenix's Last Movie to Make U.S. Debut! 

I didn't even know that River Phoenix had made a final movie prior to his sudden death in 1993 of drug overdose. But now, THR is saying that the actor, a shining star during his heyday (and truth be told, he could have given Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr. a run for their money), shot three weeks of a movie called "Dark Blood" before he died.

Now, the film is making its North American debut at the Miami International Film Festival even though Phoenix's family said no. But why? Wouldn't they want to share with us his final performance?

Here's what happened -- in 2007, George Sluizer, the Dutch director behind the movie, was told by his doctors that he didn't have long to live because of aneurysm. So now, Sluizer wanted to showcase his film prior to his own imminent death.

Oh my gosh, how morbid is this movie? And how appropriate that its title is "Dark Blood."

Phoenix's family spokesperson told THR in 2011 that, “Joaquin Phoenix and his family have not been in communication with the director nor will they participate in any way.”

Which baffled Sluizer saying, “No one seems to understand that an artist wants to finish his art, just like a painter would want to finish his unfinished painting." The director even called the family's reaction immature, “The family’s response is understandable, but it's an immature point of view.”

James Franco Defends Gay Movie From Australian Government -- Watch Video! 

"The Oz the Great and Powerful" actor created a video to speak out against the Australian Classification Board to ban screenings of Travis Matthews' gay-themed film, "I Want Your Love."

And hurray for the actor for that!

Franco co-directed "Interior.Leather.Bar" with Matthews, a 40-minute short film that reimagines deleted scenes from William Friedkin's "Cruising."

Now, the Australian government banned screenings of "I Want Your Love" at the, of all places, Melbourne Queer Film Festival and the Brisbane Queer Film Festival. Why? Because the Australian government deemed the sex scenes between men were indecent!

Watch Franco's video reaction below via THR and Out.
