This week, a major motion picture trailer leaks, a Hollywood favorite looks different, and a famed fashion designer dies.

1. Avengers Leaked

Avengers assemble…again!  The trailer to “Avengers 2: Age of Ultron” leaked this week, nearly a week before its scheduled release.

Narrated by James Spader, who plays the villain of the film, the trailer features the return of our favorite Avengers along with some new superheroes. The question is, are they friends or foes?

Marvel Entertainment noticed the leak too and reacted with the best tweet possible: “Dammit Hydra.”

After years of what seems like hiding from the public eye, one of Hollywood’s classic leading ladies stepped out on the red carpet and shocked some fans in the process. Renee Zellweger, famous for her part in films like “Jerry Maguire” and “Bridget Jones’ Diary” looked dramatically different when she made an appearance at an Elle magazine event in Los Angeles this week.

In fact, the 45-year-old star looked nothing like herself; or at least the Zellweger audiences know from years ago.

The internet immediately went frantic with speculation of plastic surgery as well as negative judgments about her face.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so you be the judge.

Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta passed away at age 82 this week while in his Connecticut home, according to his wife Annette.

For more than 50 years, de la Renta was a staple in fashion, crafting gorgeous gowns worn by celebrities, socialites and first ladies worldwide.

Along with his wife, de la Renta is survived by his adopted son, Moises, a designer at the company his father founded.

After much speculation, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have confirmed their second child is on the way.

In a statement, the royal palace informed the public on Kate Middleton and Prince William’s status: “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in April 2015. The Duchess of Cambridge continues to be affected by Hyperemesis Gravidarum, but her condition is steadily improving.”

Middleton’s diagnosis is the same one she received with her first pregnancy.

Now, time will only tell if Prince George will have a little sister or a little brother.

 

5. “Breaking Bad” Is Not For Kids

It should be a no-brainer that selling a toy based on characters that illegally made and sold meth to children is a bad idea.  Apparently Toys R Us didn’t think so.

The toy retailer is pulling its four collectible dolls based on characters from the hit series “Breaking Bad” after a petition campaign against Toys R Us was made.

“Let’s just say, the action figures have taken an indefinite sabbatical,” Toys R Us said in a statement. The retailer had maintained that the figures were sold in limited quantities in the adult-action-figure area of its stores.
