Of the joyous announcement, Miss Sanchez wrote, "I have great news! Eric and I are expecting our first baby! We feel so blessed and excited."

Roselyn, who married Eric back in 2008, added, "Thank you for all your well wishes and prayers. They mean the world to us."

El Bulli (coconut sponge!)

Despite its title, El Bulli: Cooking In Progress isn't so much a food documentary as a depiction of a refined industrial process. For foodie types, Ferran Adrià's three-Michelin-stars establishment is one of the most important homes of molecular gastronomy (or, as he defines it when imagining nervous diners' reactions, all that stuff using liquid nitrogen). For Adrià, semi-industrial hardware and unnatural-sounding additives are as essential as olive oil and fresh produce, tools rather than novelties. The food that comes out is not just highly visual—crackable, frail desserts, unusual foams, unnatural bulbous curves—but meant to taste like nothing you've experienced, with familiar ingredients prodded into new forms. Some people think it's pretentious gimmickry, but Adrià swears his only goal is to surprise and delight.

El Bulli The theatrical release of Gereon Wetzel's stone-faced portrait of the titular Spanish restaurant's 2008-09 year is timed to coincide with the establishment closing its doors on Friday before converting into a culinary think-tank that launches in 2014—by which point the pesky diners will presumably be eliminated, leaving the creators to tinker in peace. In solidarity with its driven subjects, El Bulli sports precisely zero shots of customers to instead emphasize the cooks and wait staff. Coming up with an all-new, 30-plus-course tasting menu every year is no simple feat, so for six months Ferran Adrià and his core crew retreat from their Catalonian location to a lab in Barcelona. The film devotes equal time to experimentation and opening night, but it has no interest in life outside the kitchen.

Titanic In 3D At Big Screen

Sneak peek of Cameron's classic & more

It's here at last. After months of work and whole minutes of preparation, Empire Presents...Big Screen kicked off this morning at The O2 in London. Our own Chris Hewitt was there to present the event in style, or at least his own inimitable style, and the very first studio to present footage was 20th Century Fox. Fox' Chris Green was there to present the panel. He started with the just-released Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, wherein we saw a featurette on the groundbreaking apes effects of the film and a quick look at the barnstorming last act. Then it was the turn of In Time, the Justin Timberlake / Amanda Seyfried sci-fi thriller. That was the same long-form trailer we've seen before, but it looked great on the big screen. Then it was the turn of Russian-set sci-fi thriller The Darkest Hour (in 3D) and a bit of a change of pace with the much-praised indie Martha Marcy May Marlene. We had an introduction from some of the world's best directors - including James Cameron, Ridley Scott, Tim Burton, Matthew Vaughn, Timur Bekmambetov, Cameron Crowe and George Lucas - talking about their love of cinema and (unsurprisingly given the hosts) working with Fox, which was nevertheless rather cool. Well, they're all very smart and entertaining men. We finished with a look at the remastered 3D version of Titanic, which will be released next year for the 100th anniversary of the disaster, with a specially-recorded intro from producer Jon Landau. The scenes we saw spanned most of the movie, from Rose's arrival at the ship, Jack's appearance in his borrowed tuxedo, the dancing below decks, the "I'm flying!" scene, the ship's first sight of the iceberg, the "Nearer My God To Thee" montage (yup, it's still a tear-jerker in stereoscope) and the unforgettable sight of the ship up-ending and sinking towards the waves. As you might expect with Cameron himself overseeing the conversion, it was pretty flawless in the footage we saw, adding a little dimension to events (in particular the sight of the engine room pistons slowing and reversing speed) but without proving too much of a distraction. Roll on April 2012, frankly.

Mercedes CLC Shooting Brake

Mercedes-Benz потвърди производството на версията Shooting Brake на модела CLC.

Това спортно комби ще се основава на версията седан, който трябва да се появи на автомобилния пазар, през 2012 година.
CLC Shooting Brake вероятно ще бъде разработен на платформата на Mercedes – Benz MFA и ще бъде визуално свързан с концепцията CLS ShootingBrake (на втората снимка), който най-вероятно ще има подобна линия на покрива и задната част. 

Новият CLC Shooting Brake ще се задвижва от бензинов двигател с директно впръскване на горивото, а по-късно ще получи и дизелови двигатели. Ще има версия със задвижване на предните колела и задвижване на всички четири колела.
Точната дата на пристигането му на пазара, не е известна, но се очаква, че това да се случи през 2014-та година. 

Saab планира нови модели

Борейки се оцеляване Saab продължава да работи въпреки сериозната финансова криза,
която отдавна е на лице. Това не пречи на ръководството да планира нови модели и дори едно ново име за новия 9-3.
Директора на Saab за Северна Америка, Тim Colbeck, потвърди, че новото поколение на модела 9-3 трябва да достигне на пазара през първата половина на 2013 и ще се характеризира с напълно нов дизайн, който трябва данапомня на предишни успешни модели, когато автомобилите на Saab бяха високо оценени. Също така, Colbeck добави, че този модел може лесно да получи ново име, но не даде индикация за това какво точно би могло да е то.

Colbeck потвърди, че ръководството на производителя в момента обмисля пет различни проекти за нов градски модел, който в момента е известна под наименованието 9.2 (въпреки че няма потвърждение, за това име ).

Очаква се този модел да пристигне на пазара през 2014 година, и ще притежава формата на сълза, която ще припомни оригиналния модел, който е бил произведен преди повече от петдесет години. 

'The Help' & 'Glee Movie' Reviews

'The Help' & 'Glee Movie' Reviews

Which movies are fun for the whole family and which ones are treats just for you? Find out!

In theaters now:

The Help
Short Story:
Skeeter (Emma Stone) is a journalist living in Jackson, Miss., in the midst of the  1960s civil rights movement. Hoping to challenge societal rules and break down the color barrier, Skeeter enlists maids Aibileen (Viola Davis) and Minny (Octavia Spencer) to write a novel from the perspective of "the help." Keeping the maids' identities secret to protect their safety, the novel forces the citizens of Jackson to come face-to-face with their racial issues. 

What They're Saying:
"(The Help) is, in some ways, crude and obvious, but it opens up a broad new swath of experience on the screen, and parts of it are so moving and well acted that any objections to what's second-rate seem to matter less as the movie goes on." -- New Yorker

"The Help brings a chick-flick sensibility to a serious subject, which is more daring than it might sound. It's also incredibly refreshing." -- Newsday

Good for Kids?
Rated PG-13, parents should be aware that this movie deals with some mature issues. Common Sense Media says the adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's best-selling novel "isn't likely to appeal to young kids but is a historically relevant drama that mature tweens and teens can see with their parents." Recommended for children ages 12 and above, the film deals with some heavy issues such as segregation, physical abuse and miscarriages. Click to read the full Common Sense review!

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie
Short Story:
Fox's hit show Glee heads to the big screen for an eye-popping 3-D concert experience showcasing live performances of the show's most popular songs, as well as behind-the-scenes coverage and fan interviews.

What They're Saying:
"The title promises a concert movie, in 3-D, based on the show Glee, and the film delivers precisely that, in a way that I believe is sure to overjoy fans of the show." -- MSN Movies

"Haters, head for the door. But Gleeks? Get your Glee on." -- Orlando Sentinel

Good for Kids?
This movie is perfect for Gleeks of any age! There is no need for parents to worry: According to Common Sense Media the PG-rated movie "is much tamer than the TV show" and leaves out "heavy/edgy material." With fan interviews, the movie stands by Glee's positive message to celebrate diversity and accept what makes everyone different. Click to read the full Common Sense review!

30 Minutes or Less
Short Story:
In this action-comedy, Nick (Jesse Eisenburg) is a pizza delivery boy with a rather boring life. But things get interesting when he is kidnapped by two idiot criminals (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson), strapped with a bomb and forced to rob a bank before the bomb goes "boom!" With time ticking away, he enlists the help of his best friend Chet (Aziz Ansari) -- and learns a few things about living life to the fullest. 

What They're Saying:
"None of this crackles with the kind of breezy, madcap hilarity that it should; it's actually rather tortured and convoluted." -- Associated Press

"Moral of the story: If you occupy the demographic that this film is aimed at, Hollywood doesn't have a very high opinion of you." -- Chicago Sun-Times

Good for Kids?
This one has an R rating -- thanks to some nudity, sexual content and violence -- so leave the kiddies at home!

Watch the preview!

Final Destination 5
Short Story:
In the fifth installment of the Final Destination franchise, a man saves a group of coworkers when a suspension bridge collapses. But the groups soon finds out that no one can escape Death (yes, with a capital "D"). In a race against time, the group must frantically figure out a way to cheat death as he tries to find creative ways to kill them.

What They're Saying:
"To borrow from TV terminology, the series hasn't jumped the shark yet, but the strain of inventing bizarre deaths is beginning to show." -- Hollywood Reporter

"It almost kills me to say that Steven Quale's Final Destination 5 brings sanity to a single-minded, broken record of a franchise that has, until now at least, seemed predisposed against thoughtfulness." -- Slant Magazine

Good for Kids?
With a R rating, Common Sense Media tells parents to "expect another round of horrific gore, violence and death." So it's probably wise to leave the kids at home; only adults and teenagers with an interest in horror films should see this one. Click here to read the full Common Sense review!

In case you missed:

The Change-Up
Short Story:
As childhood pals Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) and Dave (Jason Bateman) have grown up, their lives have also grown in separate directions. Dave is now a workaholic lawyer and father of three, while Mitch is a single, semi-employed womanizer with no responsibilities. Of course, both covet the other guys' life and, after a drunken night out, they wake up to discover that they've myseriously swapped bodies. It's like Freaky Friday -- but with an R-rated twist!

What They're Saying:
"It has a low opinion of men, a lower opinion of women, and the lowest opinion of the intelligence of its audience." -- Chicago Sun-Times

"Has the moment finally arrived when we look back upon Freaky Friday as a model of comedic sophistication?" -- Time Out New York

Good for Kids?
Rated R for crude sexual content, drug use and nudity, this isn't one for the kiddies. But, if sophomoric raunchy jokes are in your wheelhouse, this is the perfect movie for a fun night out with some pals.

Watch the preview!

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Short Story:
In this Planet of the Apes prequel set in present-day San Francisco, James Franco plays a scientist whose experiments with generic engineering lead to the development of a super-intelligent breed of apes. Of course, once their IQs are off the charts, the simians aren't too pleased to be locked up in a lab -- and an all-out war erupts pitting man vs. ape for world domination.

What They're Saying:
"Precisely the kind of summer diversion that the studios have such a hard time making now. It's good, canny-dumb fun."-- New York Times

"I kind of enjoyed Rise of the Planet of the Apes despite its evident silliness and the fact that nobody's likely to remember it three weeks from now." --

Good for kids?
Rated PG-13, this film is perfect for sci-fi junkies, but probably not for kids who'll be scared by the human-vs.-ape violence. Common Sense Media says to expect, "teen boys to express an interest, as well as hardcore Harry Potter devotees." That because teens may want to see Potter star Tom Felton -- who costars in Apes -- "play something other than Draco Malfoy." Click here for the full Common Sense review!

Jessica Alba's Thoughts on Balancing Work and Family

Venturing out in search of a few household needs, a beautifully pregnant Jessica Alba was spotted out on a shopping trip in Beverly Hills, CA on Thursday afternoon (August 11).

Dressed in comfortable sweat pants, the expecting actress was accompanied by her mom, Catherine, as the two lovely ladies roamed from shop to shop before purchasing light fixtures and a standard lamp.

The sighting comes as Miss Alba has been busy promoting her upcoming movie "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D" - which hits theaters on August 19th.

As part of her promotional efforts, the 30-year-old has been penning a blog series titled "Diary of a Spy Mom" for iVillage - most recently writing about the "elusive balance between work and family."

Voicing her thoughts on the topic, Jessica opined, "I'll start by saying that I don't think I have or ever will achieve a perfect balance -- I mean, who can?"

Commenting further, the thoughtful Hollywood mommy told, "I feel fortunate that I'm in a position in my career where I don't have to work as much as I used to. When I do work, I make sure that it's time worth spending away from my family: taking jobs where I'm genuinely passionate about the material and excited to collaborate with the actors and filmmakers involved. And HUGE BONUS: I am lucky that I am able to bring Honor to work with me. Her days revolve around her nap -- for now, at least -- and she spends a lot time hanging out with me in my trailer. I create a makeshift playroom with a Pack 'n Play for naps, I have lunch with her and spend all my down time with her."

Udo Kier, photo by Steve Dollar

German actor Udo Kier has worked for the most idiosyncratic auteurs dead or alive—Andy Warhol, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Lars Von Trier, Guy Maddin, E. Elias Merhige, Dario Argento, Gus Van Sant and Werner Herzog among others—and he's also co-starred with Pamela Anderson in Barb Wire. He's the single degree of separation between extreme European art cinema and Hollywood popcorn overdrive, it seems, and even in his mid-60s, he's having trouble slowing down. "I made seven films in the last year," he said recently, chatting during a visit to Montreal's Fantasia Festival, where he was promoting a small but pivotal performance in the new horror anthology The Theatre Bizarre (itself pitched between sly European sensibilities and low-budget grindhouse mayhem). Besides projects with Maddin, a Bela Bartok biopic and the role of a Nazi leader on the moon in Iron Sky, he has a small role in Von Trier's forthcoming Melancholia, and was onstage at the Cannes press conference where the director caused a ruckus by declaring himself a Nazi.

Blood for Dracula "He is not a Nazi," Kier said, "That was a misunderstanding. What he wanted to say—he told a story that he was brought up Jewish, and his mother told him before she died that his father was named Hartmann. So he said, 'I'm German. I'm a Nazi.' Which was against the Germans, because he said actually all the Germans are Nazis."

The actor was ready to take a break, but the phone keeps ringing. He was looking forward to returning to his five-acre ranch in Palm Springs. "Now I have the happiest moments there by myself when I give water to the trees. I have 41 palm trees. It's so beautiful to stand there and smell how happy those trees are."

Over coffee in a hotel lobby, Kier reflected on his career and some of the notorious characters he's known over the last 50 years.

Dianna Agron Debuts Hot Pink Hairdo

Just as her hit FOX series' big screen effort is set to take over theaters around the globe, Dianna Agron stepped out to debut a brand new look in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday (August 11).

After beginning the day filming scenes for the upcoming season of "Glee," the Quinn Fabray cutie flaunted a wild pink hairdo as she hopped into her Audi ride and cruised over to the Sunset Towers Hotel.

The sighting comes as Miss Agron has been busy promoting "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie" with her fellow castmates over the past week - with the Kevin Tancharoen directed picture documenting the Glee Live! In Concert! summer 2011 tour.

Of the highly anticipated film - which opens on Friday, August 12th - Dianna told THR that she and her fellow "Glee" stars were under quite a bit of pressure to learn their moves in a short timeframe prior to tour launch.

The 25-year-old Georgia native dished, "We had three days to learn the choreography. And, luckily we have the most amazing choreographers. Everybody had a double they would take us all and break us off and teach each other our track. We couldn't have learned it in three days had we not that that.

Highlights From The Met's Alexander McQueen Retrospective, Savage Beauty.

From May 4 through August 7th, The Metropolitan Museum of Art featured an impressive exhibit of the innovative fashions of the late Alexander McQueen. The exhibition, organized by The Costume Institute, celebrated the talented and sorely missed Alexander McQueen’s extraordinary contributions to fashion. From his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection of 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in February 2010, Mr. McQueen challenged and expanded the understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity.

The exhibit was extensive including, in addition to the 100 ensembles and 70 accessories, it included videos, runway photos, and a comprehensive website.

I have featured some details of the more unusual and striking pieces in the exhibit, but encourage you to visit the website to see more if you were unable to attend in person.

Drawn primarily from the Alexander McQueen Archive in London, with some pieces from the Givenchy Archive in Paris as well as private collections, signature designs including the “bumster” trouser, the kimono jacket, and the three-point “origami” frock coat are on view. McQueen’s fashions often referenced the exaggerated silhouettes of the 1860s, 1880s, 1890s, and 1950s, but his technical ingenuity always imbued his designs with an innovative sensibility that kept him at the vanguard.

The exhibition was organized by Andrew Bolton, curator, with the support of Harold Koda, curator in charge, both of The Costume Institute. Sam Gainsbury and Joseph Bennett, the production designers for Alexander McQueen’s fashion shows, served as the exhibition’s creative director and production designer, respectively. All head treatments and masks are designed by Guido.

Alexander McQueen now:

Sarah Burton, who has taken over Alexander McQueen's position after working along side him for 15 years, is incredibly talented in her own right and has done the line justice with her own amazing designs. It was Sarah Burton who designed Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress under the Alexander McQueen label name.

WATCH: 'Office' Season 8 Promo Spotlights Spader

Good news, Office fans! James Spader -- and his creepily confident character, Robert California -- is a big part of the show's promo campaign for Season 8. During the finale last May, the guy's bizarre powers of manipulation were equal parts funny and intriguing, and left us wanting more. Now, it seems, we'll get it.

In the new promo for the show's season premiere (Thursday, Sept. 22, at 9 p.m. ET), NBC has incorporated snippets from Spader's hilarious appearance, when he was vying for the regional manager job vacated by Michael Scott (Steve Carell). Jim (John Krasinski) appears transfixed by him, and Dwight (Rainn Wilson), a pretty strange and overconfident guy himself, seems to realize he's met his match. Watch the trailer below!

Though this second promo seems to imply that California will be the new regional manager of Dunder Mifflin, executive producer Paul Lieberstein (who also plays Toby Flenderson), says that's just the beginning.

Robert California was "hired over the summer as the new manager, but within hours, got himself promoted," Lieberstein tells Screenrant. "Within days, he took over the company." California, Lieberstein adds, is an "uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior."

So, if the unstoppable Spader gets promoted to CEO -- replacing Kathy Bates -- who will take over Michael's seat? The search continues and we can't wait to watch it all play out!
