Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Taubman Centers have partnered to create an entirely new shopping experience with the installation of Fox Movie Mall virtual storefronts.
After downloading the app Fox Movie Mall, customers can literally just scan a QR code off a wall of whatever movie they want to buy.
The app will take them to a website where they can buy their movie right then and there and
PETA is calling for their supporters to boycott Avon and Estee Lauder make-up products ever since finding out they are using animal testing.
These companies have been "cruelty-free" for years now, decades even.
But it's recently been found out that in certain Asian countries, by law, the companies are forced to pay for additional safety testing, some of which has to be done on animals.
An Avon spokesperson said:
You should know by now that Leona Lewis is a huge animal lover.
So she's used Valentine's Day as an opportunity to send a Valentine's Day card to the European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy to ask for his support in the Humane Society International's CrueltyFree2013 initiative against animal testing.
"Like most girls, I love make-up, but my ethical principles are also very important to me. No new lipstick, eye-liner or other cosmetics ingredient can ever be worth the suffering and death of defenseless animals forced to endure painful toxicity tests."
Making sure to drive her point home, she continued:
"These gentle animals are killed by the hundreds in some tests, despite the fact that manufacturing products free of new animal testing is perfectly possible through the use of thousands of existing, safe ingredients.
Animals have suffered enough – if their pain has been deemed immoral within the EU, it must also be immoral outside the EU. To trade in their pain would be hypocrisy."
This may seem confusing to some because animal testing has been banned in the European Union (EU) but the problem is on products imported.
Products tested on animals in other countries can still be imported and sold within the EU.
Let's hope her letter has an effect on the EU because then maybe America will follow suit and stop testing on the poor animals.

Listen to Cher, she always knows what's in.
The Clueless actress and super star activist Alicia Silverstone is battling for animal rights once again! Her current target — the cosmetic industry.
Alicia has written a letter to the European Commission asking them to "Uphold the European Union's 2013 ban on cosmetics tested on animals."
According to Alicia:
"This ban was put in place to advance and modernize cosmetic testing and keeping it in place is crucial. We need modern cosmetics and chemical test methods that can assess how products will affect the human body. Testing these products on animals is inherently cruel–and it's not a good predictor of how it will affect humans."
She says pushing the deadline further would only delay plans to develop nonanimal tests that can better predict how cosmetics affect humans.
We agree, AND are totes proud of Alicia for all her hard work and passion!

This recently released promotional photo for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's 7th season as one of your favorite thingz: Kitten Mittens!
The woolly product was invented by Charlie Day's character Charlie Kelly a couple seasons back. But if this pic is any hint to what's to come in season 7 — the mittens are making a comeback!!
If you can manage to tare you eyes away from the obnoxious pet product, you might also notice Rob McElhenney (aka Mac) has gained 50 lbs!!
Rob says he gained the weight for the show (WFT?). According to Charlie it's actually helped! He says: "it has definitely made Mac a lot funnier." Srsly?
We can't wait to see for ourselves!
