Reports suggest guests and critics at the glitzy Los Angeles screening, which took place in three cinemas to cope with the high demand for tickets, were asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement to keep spoilers secret.

However, a number of stars have risked angering bosses at Disney, the studio behind the new movie, by taking to Twitter.com to share their opinions with fans.

Cooties Trailer


Everyone knows fourth grade school children can be little monsters, but what happens when things get way too literal? That's what a bunch of unwitting teachers are about to discover on a seemingly normal working day. Clint Hadson is a substitute teacher who arrives at an elementary school already nervous of what lies ahead. But when some of the children start erupting in strange hives and violently lashing out at each other, it begins to become clear that a horrific virus has hit every pre-pubescent person in the building causing them to launch a vicious, flesh eating assault on their teachers. The grown-ups lock themselves away from the danger and meet one young boy who seems to have evaded the disease. It appears to be a food-borne epidemic resulting from lunchtime's chicken nuggets, and it looks like they're not the only school in the nation with problem pupils...

Stars Defend Oscars Host Seth MacFarlane


Russell Crowe Steve Martin Seth Macfarlane Rainn Wilson Seth Green Chris Brown Rihanna Mel Gibson

Russell Crowe and Steve Martin are among the stars to have defended Seth Macfarlane's stint hosting the Oscars.

The 'Family Guy' creator has come under fire for some of his more daring jokes at the Academy Awards on Sunday night (24.02.13) but the 'Les Miserables' star and comic actor Steve - who has hosted the ceremony three times, in 2001, 2003, and 2010 - think he did a great job.

Russell tweeted: ''Congratulations @SethMacFarlane , you did great mate, handled it all with grace, #topjob (sic)''

The Office's Rainn Wilson In Hilarious Angus T Jones 'Filth' Spoof


Angus T. Jones Rainn Wilson

The Office star Rainn Wilson (he plays the role of Dwight) has recorded a spoof of Angus T Jones’ recent interview, in which he branded Two and a Half Men (the show he’s paid thousands of dollars to appear in, playing the role of Jake) “filth.” Jones was explaining how he’s found God and how the content of Two and a Half Men doesn’t sit easy with him any longer.

In the interview for Forerunner Chronicles, he pleads with viewers not to watch the show, saying “if you watch Two and a Half Men, please don’t watch Two and a Half Men. I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it.” In his own send-up of the interview, which doubles as a promo for the new season of the US version of The Office. He begins the skit by looking into the camera and announcing “Dwight from The Office is nothing, ok? The Office is nothing… If you watch The Office, please don’t watch The Office. Because I’m on The Office; it’s filth. Okay? And that filth will rot your brain.” He continues: “Take it from me, who’s on The Office, please don’t watch The Office, Thursday nights at 9 o’clock on NBC. Do not watch this final season; that filth will rot your brain.”

Not only was it a cunning way of promoting the new series, it’s damned hilarious and further proof that Angus T Jones may well have lost the plot. Watch Rainn Wilson’s hilarious Angus T Jones spoof here:

U.S Office Spin Off Given The Red Light


Rainn Wilson Steve Carell

Fans of The Office won't be swapping filing cabinets and printers for scenic views and organic vegetables, as the rural spin off, previously announced in January and starring Dunder Mifflin's egomaniac salesman Dwight Schrute has been halted in its tracks.

"NBC has passed on moving forward with The Farm TV show. Had a blast making the pilot - onwards & upwards!" tweeted Rainn Wilson, who plays Schrute. He did, though, implore fans of the series not to be too downheartened, and to keep on watching the show, Reuters reported. The potential spin off would have seen Schrute working full time running a bed and breakfast inn at the beet farm with a cast of new characters. Matt Jones, who plays Badger on Breaking Bad, was to play Schrute's cousin Zeke. Sounds funny to us; we wish it'd been done! Wilson has previously promised that The Farm would be "even more far out and weird" than The Office. But NBC has lately expressed a taste for more mainstream comedy.

The U.S incarnation of The Office, which was created in the U.K by British funny man Ricky Gervais, is currently in its last season and producers have said it will tie up many of the characters' storylines and reveal the identity of those shooting the 'documentary' at the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton.

However, Wilson took to his Twitter.com page on Monday (29Oct12) to let fans know the project has not been given the greenlight.
