Nina Dobrev to Exit The Vampire Diaries After Six Years!!


The hit series based on novels by L.J Smith ,The Vampire Diaries, a riveting conclusion to the tale of two vampire brothers and the beautiful girl torn between them.

New beginnings! After six years on the CW’s The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev is looking forward to tackling new roles — but she admits it’ll be “strange.”

In an interview with Self magazine, the June 2015 cover girl opens up about exiting the show that made her famous.“I’ve loved working on this show. It’s been such a crazy, awesome adventure, and I’ve been surrounded by so many people who I consider family,” Dobrev, who announced she was leaving her role as leading lady Elena Gilbert behind with an emotional Instagram last month, told the mag. “I know this is a new exciting step in the right direction for me, but it’s going to be so strange not to be with them.”

Ian Somerhalder’s ex-girlfriend, whose final episode of The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursday, is planning on hitting the road with her girlfriends before tackling her next big role.

“There are no hotel reservations, no real plans,” she said of the road trip. “Just six people, three vehicles, two in each car.”

After taking what’s a likely a much needed vacation, the soon-to-be CW alum is planning on branching out. “I’m ready to put up that fight again,” she said when it comes to auditioning for more ambitious roles. “I’m excited to put up that fight.”

Dobrev’s June 2015 cover issue hits newsstands May 26. The Vampire Diaries season six finale airs Thursday, May 14, at 8 p.m. on the CW.

The DUFF by Kody Keplinger | Movie Review

The DUFF: (Designated Ugly Fat Friend)

Plot Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper may not be the prettiest girl in her high school, but she has a loyal group of friends, a biting wit, and a spot-on BS detector. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush, who calls Bianca the DUFF–the designated ugly fat friend–of her crew.

But things aren’t so great at home and Bianca, desperate for a distraction, ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.

Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.

What I thought :

Finally !! A brilliant teen romance with no relation to the supernatural world.Duff is something everyone can relate to, and everyone has a DUFF whether or not you care to admit it, its a universal truth.When Bianca becomes a victim to cyber bullying, a topic which is also very prominent, a mean girl uploads a video of her trying on clothes while unduffing herself.

This movie also touched on a very realistic topic, “cyber bullying”. With social media reaching unstoppable heights, cyber bullying is inevitable but Bianca manages to overcome this with flourish.

The audience will most definitely enjoy the sarcastic, snappy dialogue but the charming and irresistible leads that set it apart from other such movies with a positive message and charming performances.

China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan

(Release Date: June 16)

On the eve of her wedding to Nicholas Young, heir to one of the greatest fortunes in Asia, Rachel should be over the moon. She has a flawless Asscher-cut diamond from JAR, a wedding dress she loves more than anything found in the salons of Paris, and a fiancé willing to sacrifice his entire inheritance in order to marry her.

But Rachel still mourns the fact that her birthfather, a man she never knew, won’t be able to walk her down the aisle. Until: a shocking revelation draws Rachel into a world of Shanghai splendor beyond anything she has ever imagined.

 Finders Keepers by Stephen King 

(Release Date: June 2)

A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far—a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in Mr. Mercedes. “Wake up, genius.” So begins King’s instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader.

The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn’t published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel. Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime.

Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years. Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous.

Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.

The Cartel by Don Winslow 

(Release Date : June 23)

From the internationally best-selling author of the acclaimed novel The Power of the Dog comes The Cartel, a gripping, true-to-life, ripped-from-the-headlines epic story of power, corruption, revenge, and justice spanning the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars.

It’s 2004. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against Adán Barrera, the head of El Federación, the world’s most powerful cartel, and the man who brutally murdered Keller’s partner. Finally putting Barrera away cost Keller dearly—the woman he loves, the beliefs he cherishes, the life he wants to lead. Then Barrera gets out, determined to rebuild the empire that Keller shattered. Unwilling to live in a world with Barrera in it, Keller goes on a ten-year odyssey to take him down.

His obsession with justice—or is it revenge?—becomes a ruthless struggle that stretches from the cities, mountains, and deserts of Mexico to Washington’s corridors of power to the streets of Berlin and Barcelona. Keller fights his personal battle against the devastated backdrop of Mexico’s drug war, a conflict of unprecedented scale and viciousness, as cartels vie for power and he comes to the final reckoning with Barrera—and himself—that he always knew must happen.

The Cartel is a story of revenge, honor, and sacrifice, as one man tries to face down the devil without losing his soul. It is the story of the war on drugs and the men—and women—who wage it.

 Vanishing Games by Roger Hobbs

(Release Date: July 7)

The gritty, riveting, highly anticipated sequel to the national (and international) best seller Ghostman, by the critically acclaimed and award-winning Roger Hobbs It’s just before dawn on the South China Sea when three experienced pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht.

Their target: a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But when one of them stumbles across an enormous treasure that wasn’t on the manifest, everything goes sideways. Within minutes two of them are dead, leaving the third, a coldblooded psychopath, to claim both the sapphires and the mysterious windfall for himself. If he disappears, he won’t just be wealthy. He’ll have the power to change the course of history.

His boss, Angela, isn’t about to let that happen. She calls in a favor from her onetime protégé: a fixer sometimes known as Jack, or more often as simply the Ghostman. Within hours he’s flying halfway around the world to find her in the glimmering neon slums of Macau. Jack has no real name, no address and no fingerprints—but given the right motivation, he can make serious problems vanish. Though the two haven’t talked since they botched a job six years ago, as soon as Jack’s off the plane they’re back together again, facing down a crime boss, a hit man and a conspiracy bigger than anything they’ve ever encountered and more dangerous than they could’ve imagined.

Their partnership—between people with no lasting relationships whatsoever—is at the very heart of a novel that will cement Roger Hobbs’s status as one of our most talented crime writers.

Marvel Studios All Set to Reboot Spider-Man!

Amid persistent talk and rumors of “The Amazing Spiderman 3” movie, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that there will be no such thing as his company, in collaboration with Sony Pictures, is set to reboot the Spider-Man franchise to make the web-clinging superhero attune to the Marvel cinematic universe.

It can be recalled that Marvel and Sony has forged a groundbreaking agreement in February which gave Marvel the rights to Spiderman as he officially joins the Marvel cinematic universe, the way he has been known to belong by fans of Marvel comics.

Talks about the cancellation of “The Amazing Spider-Man 3” and the firing of Andrew Garfield from the supposed movie have been circulating in the internet lately. That is basically water under the bridge now considering that it is now Marvel’s turn to make a movie about Spider-Man and it is not planning to build on the two-movie series of “The Amazing Spider-Man” that starred Andrew Garfield.

Feige said that the Spider-Man reboot movie will focus more on the real personality of the superhero which shall be comical and witty.

In the “Spider-Man” and “The Amazing Spider-Man” series produced by Sony Pictures, the superhero was portrayed as a serious man wanting to rid the world of villains.Marvel intends to roll out the “Spider-Man” reboot movie sometime in 2017 but the superhero will already appear in the third installment of the Captain America movie to be released to worldwide theaters next year officially titled “Captain America: Civil War.”

New Details About Mindy Kaling`s Upcoming Book Revealed !!

Mindy Kaling has been working on a new book for a while now, but the wait is almost over. The Mindy Project star just announced more details about her follow-up to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). Which you need to read immediately, if you haven’t already.


Why Not Me?

Why Not Me? comes out on September 29 and picks up where the previous book left off.

The essays follow Mindy as she navigates adulthood, her “weird as hell” relationship with ex B.J. Novak, and “attempting to be the first person in history to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever.”

She also goes into what it’s like to be a woman of color in Hollywood. Mindy’s website features a few spot-on lines from the new book, here are a few points mentioned:

“Your natural hair color may be appropriate for your skin tone, but this isn’t the land of appropriate – this is Hollywood, baby. Out here, a dark-skinned woman’s traditional hair color is honey blonde.”

“Most women we see onscreen are either so thin that they’re walking clavicles or so huge that their only scenes involve them breaking furniture.”

The cover shows Mindy looking confident and composed, a far cry from the awkward wallflower from the previous book. But it’s an easy bet that maturity won’t make her stories any less hilarious.

Transformers 5 Expected In 2017!!


While Michael Bay’s next movie is to be a ‘based on true story’ account of the 2012 attack on America’s Benghazi compound, it seems like he will have plenty of opportunities to return to the Transformers universe afterwards.

During the recent Hasbro investor’s conference call, as transcribed by TFW 2005, the company’s CEO spelled out their plans.

“You may have heard some writers being hired,” he explained, “and we have in fact brought in Akiva Goldsman to lead a group of writers to really create a strategic plan around Transformers. We think there are any number of stories to be told from the brand that has been around for 30 years with amazing canon and mythology. We would expect the sequel to the Transformers movie to happen in 2017.”

So there’s likely to be a new Transformers film in 2017
