The Atlanta Braves fight Disney/Pixar's 'Brave'

According to Disney news blog Stitch Kingdom, the Atlanta Braves aren't big fans of upcoming animated film “Brave.”

This summer, the Atlanta National League Baseball Club (owners of the Atlanta Braves), reportedly filed an objection to Disney’s attempts to trademark the title “Brave.” The team claims that the upcoming animated film’s moniker is already being used by their organization.

Although the Braves don’t own any trademarks for the word “Brave” (only “Braves”), they insist that damages will occur as a result of the trademarks being approved.

Watch: Trailer for 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'

Joining December's movie trailer-palooza is a clip for the first film in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit," which takes fans back to the Oscar-winning director's cinematic rendering of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" takes place before the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, and follows a young Bilbo Baggins' (Martin Freeman) on a mission to reclaim a treasure held by the dragon Smaug.

The trailer not only introduces us to a young Baggins, but also a company of dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage). We're also reintroduced to Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Cate Blanchett as Galadriel. Before the two-and-a-half minute trailer is up, we're teased with a shot of Baggins encountering Gollum, as well as the One Ring.

What do you think of the first sneak peek? "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens December 14, 2012, with the second film ("The Hobbit: There and Back Again") opening December 13, 2013.

Go ahead and blame Ke$ha: Young women like to 'vocal fry'

Ke$ha does it. So does Britney Spears, Zooey Deschanel and Kim Kardashian.

And now a report shows two-thirds of women in a recent study do it, too: They're all using vocal fry when they talk.

Vocal fry is a creaky, deep sound made when the human voice is at the lowest register. For Ke$ha and Britney, the creak of vocal fry can be heard at the end of the verse lines in their songs. For Zooey and Kim, it’s at the end of their sentences. Listen here for some examples:
