GEORGE CLOONEY -- MESSENGER OF PEACE!!! 


George Clooney has been named a U.N. "messenger of peace" by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The announcement is to promote the world body's peacekeeping efforts.

Clooney is the ninth U.N. messenger -- people chosen from the fields of art, music, literature and sports who have agreed to help focus attention on the United Nations' work.

Clooney, who is currently in Sudan, will receive his designation on January 31 at U.N. headquarters. The actor has been active in using his celebrity status, along with Don Cheadle and Brad Pitt, to raise money for refugees through their "Not On Our Watch" charity and draw attention to the crisis in Darfur in western Sudan.

Last month, he and Cheadle were honored by Nobel peace laureates in Rome for their efforts in Darfur.

The other U.N. messengers of peace are actor Michael Douglas, musicians Daniel Barenboim, Midori Goto and Yo-Yo Ma, authors Paulo Coelho and Elie Wiesel, naturalist Jane Goodall and Olympic equestrian Princess Haya of Jordan.

Not only is Clooney considered one of the hottest male stars, he's also an A-list celebrity, a good actor making great choices in films, and he's also politically-aware.

Wow, George Clooney is commendable! I'll vote for him :)

"STAR TREK" OFFICIAL SITE LAUNCHED! 


I woke up this morning to find an email from Paramount Pictures about their new "Star Trek" reboot!

They said new official site launched, so I went, but it's still under construction. But, we now know it's going to be released Dec. 25, 2008!!!

Here are more info:

If you watch that monster movie, "Cloverfield," you will see the new "Star Trek" trailer.

You can also see the very first image from STAR TREK over on AOL/Moviefone

But there's only one picture (the new Enterprise), and we pretty much now know about the cast.

"JUSTICE LEAGUE" THE MOVIE -- CANCELLED...FOR NOW... 


Warner Bros. is putting the pic on indefinite hold.

The reasons? Not getting official response for tax breaks shooting in Australia, and that darned Writers strike! Apparently, the studio liked the script, but it needed a bit of a tweaking (translation -- the script sucked!).

Cast members were informed that more than likely, the shoot for "Justice League" will resume either late summer or fall.

Some of the signed cast members are Adam Brody (The Flash), Armie Hammer Jr. (Batman), and Megan Gale (Wonder Woman).

George Miller of "Mad Max" and "Babe" fame is supposed to direct.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that production on this film will resume, because, I'm such a fanboy geek!!!
