Your pop culture cheat sheet

Here's what's happening in the world of entertainment this morning:

  • The Hollywood Reporter is calling "Inglorious Basterds" the "first true success story" for Twitter at the box office: "After lukewarm tweets from Friday screenings caused weekend drops for pics like 'Bruno' and 'Funny People' earlier this summer, 'Inglourious Basterds' came along this weekend and rode a crest of tweeting goodwill." Positive reviews on Twitter may have played a role in the film's $37.6 million weekend take.
  • Lindsay Lohan is "okay, but upset," according to People, after an apparent burglary at her home. Lohan's representative said, "Lindsay and her sister Ali Lohan were fortunate [in] that they weren't in the home when this incident happened."
  • Variety says that Friday's sold-out 16-minute preview of James Cameron's 3-D "Avatar" was seen as important to the film's success when it is released on December 28: "Filmmakers are generally leery about showing clips so early in the game, but in this case, Cameron and (20th Century) Fox have decided it is more important to get the word out." Fox also wants to encourage more theater owners to install more 3-D screens.
  • Actress Milla Jovovich married "Resident Evil" director Paul W.S. Anderson on Saturday, according to People. The couple exchanged vows at an outdoor ceremony at their Beverly Hills home.
