Getty An Iraqi actress is irate over a story about "fat" women -- a story that used a photo of her to illustrate a point -- so she's suing. Enas Taleb is a big deal in Iraq ... and she's publicly fuming over the story in the Economist titled, "Why Women Are Fatter Than Men in the Arab World." The Economist went on to say men often gravitate toward women with "curves" and used a photo of her to make the point. According to the article, "Iraqis often cite Enas Taleb, an actress with ample curves, as the ideal of beauty." The 42-year-old TV personality says she's going to sue the newspaper ... this according to New Lines mag. She believes the pic was photoshopped and also says the newspaper had no authorization to run it. That said, it seems her lawsuit will go deeper ... she said, "I am demanding compensation for the emotional, mental and social damage this incident has caused me." Her grievance goes beyond herself ... calling the story an … [Read more...] about Iraqi Actress Will Sue Newspaper that Used her Photo in Story about ‘Fat’ Women
EXCLUSIVE : Maria Bakalova ( Bodies Bodies Bodies ) has joined the casts of Andrew Durham’s feature directorial debut Fairyland for American Zoetrope , and Jerry Seinfeld ’s first film Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story for Netflix .

Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) has announced the 29 projects selected for this year’s Asian Project Market (APM), a core strand of the festival’s industry activities, including new works from Thailand’s Aditya Assarat, China’s Wang Qi, Vietnam’s Le Bao and Myanmar’s Maung Sun, whose producer Ma Aeint is currently in prison in Yangon. Ma Aeint, who previously produced Maung Sun’s award-winning Money Has Four Legs , was recently sentenced to three years in jail with hard labour by Myanmar’s military junta, which took over the country in a brutal coup in early 2021. She was accused of “causing fear, spreading fake news or agitating against government employees”. She is attached as a producer to Maung Sun’s new project, Future Laobans , described as a drama about the “international dimension of organized crime.” Assarat, an award-winning Thai director ( Hi-so , Wonderful Town ), is returning to feature-length directing after focusing on producing, … [Read more...] about Projects from Aditya Assarat, Wang Qi, Le Bao And Jailed Myanmar Producer Ma Aeint In Busan’s Asian Project Market Line-up
Trade expert Girish Wankhede writes for Filmibeat on the last week's major releases and this week's prediction at the box office. This week is the Pre-Festive Release week and so is the solemnity. The week before a festival is usually dull because no producer wants a weekly window of less than 7 days. This week, two biggies are slated for August 11 (Thursday) release, Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan , so no producer of smaller films will plunge into this. Firstly, it will have one day less from its weekly count and secondly, it would have full chances to be pulled over by Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan . With this incoming clash of the Rakhi and Independence Day weekend, almost all the screens will be filled by these two biggies and consequently leaving no other film to survive. Sita Ramam and Bimbisara First Week Box Office In addition to two obscure Hindi releases Haryana and Miami to New York last week, not many took the … [Read more...] about Weekly Box Office Analysis And Prediction For Laal Singh Chaddha And Raksha Bandhan By Trade Expert
