U.S. Airports Remove 'Naked Image' Scanners!

After a slew of complaints and lawsuits, the United States Government has finally put the kibosh on their full-body scanners!

Known unaffectionately as 'naked image' scanners, the x-rays provided TSA employees with a nearly perfect naked image of people passing through security.

We say nearly, of course, because no one is perfect!

Opponents of the machines have claimed this 'free show' violated their right to privacy.

For now, everyone will have to be patted down, but airports are

R-Patz Joins New Cronenberg Film

Uh oh, film school kids! Looks like you'll have to let Robert Pattinson into your world.

R-Patz has landed the lead role in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, based on the Don DeLillo novel.

He'll star as Eric Packer, a "financial wunderkind" who "risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day." His actions also put his life at risk, in this film which takes place in a "slightly futuristic metropolis."

Knowing Cronenberg's previous films, we're wondering if any of the following will happen to R-Patz in Cosmopolis:

- Will he have a naked fight scene, like Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises?

- Will he turn into a fly, like Jeff Goldlbum in The Fly?

- Will his head explode, like in Scanners?

Given some of the director's recent work, we're thinking this one MIGHT be a bit more low key, but we're def intrigued!

Are U excited to see this Cronen-Patz collaboration?
