Hollywood Will Go Through A Meltdown, Claim Spielberg And Lucas
This Thursday, Nicole will select 30 fitness and dance enthusiasts who will learn Madonna’s dance-inspired “Addicted to Sweat” training routine, and later that day will perform it with Madonna herself. For those Madonna fans who can’t sign up for the contest, there’s more Madame M on EPIX TV. The network is airing “Madonna: The MDNA Tour.” It’s an inside look at the singer’s recent tour. The documentary airs this Saturday. For more information, check out http://www.epixhd.com . — Terri MacLeod Copyright 2013 by NBC Universal, Inc .

The two directors, famous for bringing characters like Indiana Jones and Darth Vader to us, faced problems in in the past few years trying to get their movies into theaters. Steven Spielberg admitted that his Academy-Award winning ‘Lincoln’ almost did not make it to the big screen, but went to television. He said, “This close – ask HBO – this close.” Steven Spielberg predicted that if this implosion did happen then movies could possibly adopt a Broadway style of payment where “You’re gonna have to pay $25 for the next ‘Iron Man’, you’re probably only going to have to pay $7 to see ‘Lincoln’.” George Lucas also added that if this does happen, then bigger movies would play in theaters for longer while smaller movies could shift to television which he also called “more adventurous”. How genuine are Steven Spielberg and George Lucas’ comments though? They were instrumental in starting the trend of summer blockbusters back in the day with Star Wars, Jaws and Indiana Jones. Is it just karma hitting back?

Where Hollywood magic is made
The Hollywood sign (never mind that its original purpose was a plan to sell real estate in the Hollywood Hills, in a development to be called “Hollywoodland”) never came to completion, but it is a major landmark and a nice hiking destination, although you can’t actually access the sign, which has been fenced off. The Hollywood Walk of Fame—all those stars in the pavement along both Hollywood and Vine, two of the world’s most fabled streets—continues to grow, with a new star typically added on the third Thursday of each month, right at noon. It’s a great opportunity to spot celebrities. The newest star, as of June 14, is Jennifer Lopez, the 2,500th star to shine at Hollywood and Vine.
