According to media reports, Mario Lopez was assaulted at a Las Vegas spa on Friday afternoon as he was leaving the bathroom -- and the man who assaulted the TV host is now forever banned from the facility because of the incident! Related: Mario Reveals His Celebrity Crush! Apparently, Mario was working out at the facilities within Planet Hollywood Spa by Mandara on Friday afternoon when he bumped into a guy while leaving the bathroom -- and things went from zero to 100 VERY quickly! TMZ claims that Mario quickly said "excuse me," and the guy responded with "you got a problem?" What is this, some 1950s movie scripting?! LOLz!! The guy was allegedly "about to step to Mario and make physical contact," but an employee got in between them -- and that's when things got REALLY weird. Lopez had left his phone on one of the locker room benches, when the guy stepped back, picked it up, and threw it against the wall, smashing it to pieces. Security got there quick, and cops came afterwards, even though Mario refused to press charges and no arrests were made. According to the TMZ report, not only did Planet Hollywood replace Lopez's phone free of charge, they also banned the "known troublemaker" for life from attending anything within the hotel.

Pac-Man Hits Nintendo Switch Console With ‘Namco Museum’

Nintendo Switch’s third party lineup continues to grow, this time with an ode to the past with the just released title Namco Museum. The classic games compilation includes Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga ‘88, The Tower of Druaga, Tank Force, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Spy Kid, and Splatterhouse. Also included is the 2003 four player game Pac-Man Vs., a title based on the the Pac-Man series and supervised by iconic game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Two Nintendo Switch consoles are required for Pac-Man Vs. (one console will feature the gameplay of three ghosts, with Pac-Man utilized for the other console). A downloadable app on the Nintendo e-Shop enables 1-3 players to enter a multiplayer session of the game that’s hosted by another Nintendo Switch system. “Over the decades that have passed since these games first hit arcades, they’ve proven to be timeless classics that retain their charm across every era and hardware platform,” said Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. VP of Marketing Eric Hartness. “The Nintendo Switch is the perfect platform to play Namco Museum single player, multiplayer, on the couch, or on the go. There’s something here for everyone, and with the built-in multiplayer capability of the Switch, anyone can join in.” Namco Museum is currently available via the Nintendo eShop.

They say it’s ‘settled science.’ They call people who disagree with them ‘duh-nye-urz.’ Of course, I’m talking about gravity.” That’s when Jennifer Aniston, or as Melissa referred to her, Junifer Ooniston, a “less famous person,” joined in. “Who told you that gravity is real?,” Melissa questioned Jennifer, who replied, “Pretty much every scientist in the world told me that.” Shortly after, Melissa and Jennifer got into a “fake tussle,” which resulted in the Friends star being strapped into a harness. “If gravity isn’t a hoax, then why are you flying right now?” Melissa quipped – Watch the hilarious segment below!

Weekend Box Office: "Gravity" Defies

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 3D (Sony) Week 2 [Runs 4,001] PG Friday $4.7M, Saturday $9.4M, Weekend $21.5M (-37%), Cume $60.5M 3.

Rush (Imagine/Universal) Week 3 [Runs 2,308] R Friday $1.4M, Saturday $2.0M, Weekend $4.5M, Cume $18.2M Last week I wrote that I was worried about "Gravity" attracting an audience, despite stellar reviews. I wondered if audiences would feel like 3D and IMAX prices were worth it just to see Sandra Bullock floating in space. I mean, sci-fi without battles, robots, things exploding? Would moviegoers buy that? Well, it looks like I was wrong--audiences did indeed buy it, making the movie number one for the weekend and helping it break a number of records: largest October opening weekend, largest IMAX opening in October, largest openings ever for Bullock and Clooney, and 2nd largest for Cuaron (I would guess that his entry in the Harry Potter franchise is first). I've got to tell you, this is a time when I'm just thrilled to be wrong--there's nothing more discouraging then when someone makes a good movie and no one comes to see it. Congratulations, moviegoers of North America. You're awesome--and so is "Gravity." Go see it, and see it in 3D and IMAX if possible--if you've been waiting for a movie to make the 3D prices and annoying glasses worthwhile, this is it. And it's only 90 minutes, no Oscar bait bloat here. Thank you, Mr. Cuaron, Ms. Bullock, and Mr. Clooney. As for the other new opener this weekend, "Runner Runner," well, that flopped, which surprised no one. Did you see any ads for it? I think I saw one. It has that look of Ben Affleck saying, "I've just spent a lot of time directing a movie and I'm not sure how it's going to do, so let me just star in this and pick up a quick paycheck." I can't imagine anyone, other than the relatives of the people involved--and maybe not even them--feeling motivated to drag themselves out of their houses on a lovely (or rainy, depending on where you are) October weekend to see this movie, which looks like a Netflix pick for when you've just run out of ideas. So on to next week! Or actually not--this is the last entry for this blog. I'd like to thank Hollywood for providing me with enough news to write about each day (most of the time--there certainly were some dry spells). Thank you to casting rumors, box office reports, "10 best lists" and nominations, and film festivals where deals are announced. Thank you to projects that linger for years, generating endless posts (I'm thinking of you, "Highlander" and "The Crow" remakes). Thank you to movies that take forever to cast, like our number one movie this weekend, "Gravity"--remember when they thought it would star Angelina Jolie or Natalie Portman with Robert Downey Jr.? Thank you to troubled productions that generate an endless spiral of posts, like Portman's "Jane Got a Gun," which whipped through a directors and actors like used tissues for a brief comet-like run this March. Most of all, thank you to any of you who ever read anything over here. Oh, and of course I'd like to thank the Academy. Because everyone wants to thank the Academy......»»
