GIMME FIVE: Reasons We Already Love “Cabin In The Woods”

Ok so, the thriller "Cabin in the Woods" hasn't been released yet, and we weren't even the lucky ones that saw it at South by Southwest, but we just know that we're gonna love it. Here are our top 5 reasons: 1. Blue-eyed beauty Jesse Williams! We went ga ga for him in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" and stalked him at the NYC launch of Lucky Strike. He can lure us into a cabin in the woods, anytime.               2. Sexy Brian White : We've followed him since his early days on the "Moesha" show to his most recent series "Men of a Certain Age." Let's just hope they don't kill him off early in the film.             3. Aussie stud Chris Hemsworth : Who doesn't love Thor...in the woods?             4. Screenwriter Joss Whedon : He also wrote "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel." Need we say more?             5. Wired magazine describes the film as an R-rated metanarrative comedy about the science of horror movies. A little geeky sounding, but intriguing. "Cabin" opens in theaters on April 13.

Magic Johnson’s “Announcement’

It's been over 20 years since Magic Johnson announced to the world that he was HIV positive and changed the face of AIDS. "Because of the HIV virus I have attained," he said. "I will have to retire from the Lakers." But he didn't retire from life, as he became a successful businessman, a television host, an advocate and a grandfather. Magic and his wife Cookie talk about how difficult that day was and the events that led up to it in the documentary "The Announcement", directed by Nelson George. "It's not so much what people said about him, it's how he felt and what people did to him," George said. "Be it people dis-inviting him to their restaurant or dealing with how [the drug] AZT affected his body. It's an inside-out view as opposed to the things you might have heard discussed on talk radio." The Announcement airs on ESPN tonight at 9pm.
