Jenkins tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "After seven incredible years, Tara and I have parted professionally... she will always be a trusted friend and colleague but ultimately her place is in California with her lovely new wife, whom I also count as a dear friend. I fully support Tara's decision to put her personal life first, wish her the absolute best and look forward to making more memories together in the years to come."

The When Will I Be Famous singer has enjoyed a loyal following since the 1980s, but one fan went too far in her bid to get close to the former pop icon.
He tells Britain's OK! magazine, "The weirdest by far was somebody grabbing my legs from under the bed! That scared the life out of me. I had got back to my hotel room one evening on my own and I just felt these hands grab me.
"It was a woman I think but I didn't stick around to find out. Luckily there was a member of security outside. I make sure I always check under my bed now when I get home."

Just two weeks after it was released, director Feng Xiaogang's Aftershock has broken box office records for a Chinese film with $79 million in ticket sales. The film, which cost $20 million to produce -- one of the highest budgets ever for a Chinese film -- recreates the devastating earthquake that struck the northern Chinese city of Tangshan in 1976, killing more than 240,000. Produced by the Huayi Bros., China's leading privately-owned film production company, it is the first Chinese movie converted to the IMAX format. [IMAX said on Monday that it has identified China as a principal growth market and plans to open IMAX cinemas not only in major cities in the country but also to develop "mobile cinemas" using inflatable domes that can bring IMAX to rural areas of the country.] The official state news agency Xinhua reported Monday that the film has drawn criticism from parents who have complained that the earthquake scenes, depicting crushed houses, horribly injured survivors, and mangled bodies frightened their children. Two of the principal characters are seen as children, one of whom loses an arm; the other is presumed to have been killed but survives. "The complaints have renewed calls for reform of China's film approval system," Xinhua said. "Many critics want a system like the one in Hong Kong, where movies are classified into three major categories in terms of suitability for children." (While officially a part of China, Hong Kong exists within a "one country, two systems" framework.)

Virtually all of the top films beat Sunday's estimates, final box-office results indicated on Monday. Toy Story 3 wound up with $110.31 million. The Karate Kid dropped just 46 percent to $29.88 million and crossed the $100 million mark after just ten days. Its gross now stands at $107.13 million. Fox's the A-Team slid 44 percent to $14.41 million to place third. Even Jonah Hex exceeded its estimates, earning $5.39 million to place seventh (instead of eighth, where Sunday's estimates had placed it). Although Toy Story 3 opened on the largest number of 3D screens ever, its revenue from those screens was actually 1 percent lower that it was for Shrek Forever After , Home Media magazine reported Monday, citing a study by BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield. That result, Greenfield concluded, indicates that the 3D novelty is wearing off and that moviegoers are beginning to weigh the value of premium priced 3D tickets against lower-priced 2D tickets, particularly for family films. "We fear 3D fatigue," Greenfield wrote. "We believe movie exhibitors could generate higher box office results, especially on family films, by lowering the 3D ticket surcharges (both IMAX 3D and non-IMAX 3D)."
The top ten films over the weekend, according to final figures compiled by Box Office Mojo (figures in parentheses represent total gross to date) 1. Toy Story 3 , Disney, $110,307,189, (New); 2. The Karate Kid, Sony, $29,876,295, 2 Wks. ($107,130,239); 3. The A-Team, 20th Century Fox, $14,405,318, 2 Wks. ($50,427,588); 4. Get Him to the Greek, Universal, $6,104,810, 3 Wks. ($47,844,275); 5.

Four new movies may have opened wide last weekend, but none of them could topple Shrek Forever After as the box-office leader. It was the third consecutive weekend win for the green ogre, who won by default, given the lack of blockbuster competitioin. Ordinarily the first weekend of June is an important one for the studios. Not so this year, as ticket sales dropped 22 percent from last June's first weekend and produced the lowest total for the weekend since 1997. With $25.5 million added to its total for the weekend, the fourth Shrek movie has now earned $183.2 million after 17 days. But Shrek the Third had earned $255.9 million over the same period in 2007, and that was without the benefit of 3D premium pricing. Coming in second was Get Him to the Greek , which earned $17.6 million -- about the same amount as the progenitor movie, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, collected in its opening in 2008. Killers , which was not screened in advance for critics and received atrocious reviews when they saw it, came in third with an all-right $15.8 million. Another newcomer, Marmaduke , went to the dogs with $11.6 million. The artsy horror flick Splice , the fourth new release, took in only $7.4 million. Meanwhile, audiences kicked sand at Prince of Persia The Sands of Time, which dropped 53 percent and earned $14 million in its second week, and Sex And The City 2 , which fell 60 percent, with 12.3 million in its second week.

Following the poor Memorial Day performance by the box office, some analysts are expressing concern that the summer could turn out to be a loser for the studios. Today's Hollywood Reporter suggested that the box office could be "plagued by a nasty case of sequelitis" and quoted an unnamed top studio executive as saying, "There very well could be some burnout with moviegoers, who are looking for something new and fresh." The huge fall-off in ticket sales for Sex And The City in particular generated worries about prospects for numerous other sequels scheduled for release this summer. According to box-office tracker Rentrak, the summer box office, which began in early May, is off 21 percent from a year ago.
