New Zealand woos 'Avatar' and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

New Zealand reportedly really, really wants the "Avatar" sequels to film in their country. According to the New York Times, the nation's taxpayers will pay 25 percent of the budget for the three sequesls in exhange for the production bringing jobs there. Those "Avatar" films aren't cheap so we suspect that's some serious coin. [New York Times]

Calm down people. Miley Cyrus says she was just hugging her friend. She sorta said via her Twitter account that she's not dating rapper French Montana. [E! Online]

Yet another reason to love Justin Timberlake: He served as wingman for a concert goer who wanted to propose at his Louisville, Kentucky concert. We wanted to scream as loud as the audience did it was so sweet! [People]

It's so refreshing when celebs fess up immediately over those pesky nude photos that show up on the Internet. Disney star Dylan Sprouse, we salute you sir! [Us Weekly]

The "22 Jump Street" trailer with Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube is here (be warned it's NSFW exactly). So enjoy that:

      If I was a troll I would be a nice one that lived under a bridge and popped out to give everyone pizza. Everyone would be super happy.

      I'm asking everyone to boycot these movies. They are exploiting the gay blue people.

    I agree. Blue people are odd. And gay.

    Blue people look gay. Like embiciles. Lesbean embiciles. As a important school teacher I can say this.

    It has been a while since the first Avatar came out. Are they working on the second one yet?

      No they aren't. Not yet. Hopefully soon though. Rumor has it they Avatar 3 will be combined with The Hunger Games series.
