Twilight Financier Sues Summit Over Profits! What A Saga!

Ruh roh! We hope this lawsuit doesn't go on for an eternity…like it was bit by a vampire or something!

Goldcrest Film Distribution, financier of the Twilight franchise, is suing Summit over profits from the box office!

They claim Summit, part of Lionsgate, was deceptive in its accounting, by downplaying the films' revenues, and exaggerating their costs. If this is true, that is more messed up than an undead 100-year-old hitting on a teenager!

Goldcrest also asserts that money it was owed by Lionsgate was actually instead given to talent in the form of bonuses.

They claim they put up $10 million for the quadrilogy, and that they discovered the financial discrepancies after hiring the accounting firm Hacker Douglas to conduct an audit.

After Lionsgate prevented a full audit by not agreeing to cooperate, Goldcrest filed suit!

Yikes! We'll see how this all resolves itself, but we imagine there will be many new moons before this case is potentially sent to court and settled.

Jay Z’s Barneys Line Makes Over $1 MILLION, Despite Racial Profiling Debacle!

Jay Z's Barneys holiday collection was a smashing success!!

The numbers are in, and the numbers are HIGH!!

Yup, the profits from Jay Z’s Barneys holiday collection have officially been tallied!! And despite the racial profiling scandal the store faced upon the collection’s launch, HOVA’s goodies have pulled in over $1 MILLION in profits!!!

Partly BECAUSE of the turmoil surrounding the collection, 100% of the profits (plus 10% of Barneys sales the day the collection launched) will go directly into charity — meaning the Shawn Carter Foundation and all its beneficiaries are having a VERY happy belated holiday!

We could not be more thrilled to hear the great news, and we're glad Beyoncé's hubby was able to assuage the public's anger toward Barneys by helping them reform their unacceptable store policies!

Congrats to Jay and his collection's success!

Filed under: CharityCrazzzzyGuinea Pig

Guinea Pig

This is so crazy but so cool!!

Sean McCoy had a Guinea Pig named Lucky, who he thought could use a little extra protection, so he hand made him a custom set of scale-mail armor!!

Sadly, Lucky passed away, so Sean put the armor up on eBay, but in his memory, all profits are going to go to the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue in Virginia.

The current bid is at $24,300!!

Hmm, maybe THAT'S why people are being so generous! And, by generous we mean they're literally throwing money at this suit of armor because 100% of the profits go to charity.

That's insane! It's just a tiny suit of armor!!

Do you have tons of disposable income and have a guinea pig you want to protect? Then click HERE and place your bid!!

The book, which includes detailed accusations of child abuse and neglect, has just gone back online after being banned by Amazon back in September.

So what is this proof?

Louis C.K. Sells 100,000 Tickets For His Comedy Tour In Less Than 2 Days!

Filed under: InspirationBusiness Blitz

Louis CK comedy tour sales

Louis C.K. loves his fans and they love him right back.

The comedian and creator of the FX show Louis sold $4.5 million worth of tickets for his upcoming fall tour in just 45 hours!

Although he's already one of the top touring comics these days, his most recent success was not just because of his reputation. C.K. decided to cut Ticketmaster out of the deal and sold seats through his own web site for just $45 a piece.

Instead of making fans pay extra fees that the ticketing agency would have profited from, they paid a flat rate and scored the cheapest tickets in the country to see a major headlining comic.

The fan favorite explained his decision by saying:

$10 Million Napoleon Dynamite Trial Has Begun

Filed under: Film FlickersLegal Matters

Napoleon Dynamite lawsuit trial begins

Gosh! What a mess!

When Hollywood producers aren't busy making movies, we feel like they're in court for one reason or another.

The trial between the producers of the indie comedy hit Napoleon Dynamite and Fox Searchlight (the studio that distributed it) has begun! Plaintiffs are seeking $10 million for the home video royalties and television licensing fees they never received. (Un)Lucky!

Fox tried to squash the lawsuit last month, but CLEARLY that was unsuccessful. Now a judge will determine whether or not the studio screwed the filmmakers out of net profits on home video sales.

The problem seems to be the interpretation of the language within the contract that all parties signed at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004. Producers feel they were owed 31.66% of all home video sales, but the studio is arguing that percentage (1%, not whole) only applied to videos sold for rentals, while only a 10% royalty would be awarded for private copies.

Another dispute is regarding the contract's
