While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Option A: Peruse, if you have yet to do so, the 49 pages of production notes up on the website for "The Dark Knight Rises" website for any spoiler-esque nuggets it holds. Or, Option B if you're impatient, which we totally get by the way: Entertainment Weekly 's done the dirty work and distilled those 49 pages down into five need-to-know bullet points. [TDKR/EW]
  • That other masked superhero in theaters at the moment, Spider-Man, is still doing well at the box office, having accumulated $75 million since it opened on Tuesday. Katy Perry's "Part of Me," however, is only getting a small part of the box office profits, having earned $3.1 million on its first day. [LAT]
  • You can either read this as possible fact, or as a rumor created to ensure "Twilight" fans still care when the final movie arrives in theaters in November: Kristen Stewart was supposedly seen looking at engagement rings at an L.A. jeweler. [E!]
  • Peter Jackson's announced that principal photography is a wrap for both "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again." Onward to the cutting room and Comic-Con! [The Huffington Post]

It's official: The latest from CNN Entertainment

Here's a round-up of the latest confirmed reports from the CNN Entertainment Unit:

  • Biebs' need for speed gets him a ticket:
    A rep for California Highway Patrol tells CNN that 18-year-old Justin Bieber was hit with a speeding ticket in Los Angeles Friday morning around 10:45 a.m. PT. The rep didn't know how fast Biebs was going, but a rep for the teen star says he was hustling his way to a music video shoot. (He's since arrived safely.)
  • 'Twilight' star Jackson Rathbone becomes a dad:
    How much do you want to bet that a lot of that "Twilight Saga" money Jackson Rathbone's earned playing Jasper Hale is now being socked away into a college fund? We wouldn't be surprised, considering that Rathbone's now the proud dad of a little boy, Monroe Jackson Rathbone VI, whom Rathbone welcomed along with his girlfriend on July 5 at 9:43 a.m.
  • Rapper Crunchy Black shot in face and leg: According to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, former Three 6 Mafia member Crunchy Black was shot in the face and leg in Las Vegas on July 1. The police department tells CNN in a statement that "The injuries were not reported as life threatening, but appeared to result in substantial bodily harm." The department added in the statement that "no suspects have been arrested in connection with the shooting," and that "the criminal case is being investigated as an attempt murder."

Klum gave a German media outlet a hopeful response when the topic of her divorce from the "Kiss from a Rose" singer came up, and Seal, who's promoting a new album, tells USA Today that he's also doing well.

Morgan Freeman: Obama's not our first black president

President Barack Obama is considered by some to be the nation's first black president - but Morgan Freeman isn't one such individual.

The actor told NPR's "Tell Me More" host Michel Martin in an interview posted Thursday that "the first thing" that he thinks of when he thinks of Obama is "all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him," Morgan said.

Friday's Top Five: Backstage pass

Katy Perry's just opened 3-D concert documentary, "Katy Perry: Part of Me," joins a long line of films that attempt to show the artist(s) both in performance mode and out of it (although it's probably arguable that for many performers, as long as a camera's rolling they're never really "off").
