Director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) told 5Live that she’s working on a new sci-fi film “more or less by Moby Dick.” But in space.

Craig Callen, a Mansfield, Ohio, dentist, is offering cash and super neat prizes in return for trick-or-treaters’ loot. Callen says he will give a child $1 per pound of candy (5-pound limit per child) as well as free toothbrushes. "Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing your teeth are great preventive measures, but doing away with excess sweets would really give your teeth a healthy boost," Callen said. "Kids can have the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well. Plus they get a nice new toothbrush and a goody bag of gifts (limit one per child while supply lasts)."
Candy will be collected at Callen’s office, 552 S. Trimble Road in Mansfield from 4:30-7 p.m. on Oct. 31. Any other unwanted candy may be left at the office until Nov. 4.

Liam Warriner, 22, mooned the Queen of England while she was in Brisbane with an Australian flag tucked between his bum cheeks. Warriner, a Sydney native, says he “did it because my workmates dared me to.” Warriner told the press, “Everybody’s seen someone’s butt, come on. You see it on TV all the time, you see it in movies, it’s accepted in PG-rated programming these days. But yet it’s an offence to the Queen.” Other than his bum, Warriner also revealed that he is part of the Occupy movement. “I’d like to say we are the 99 per cent human need over corporate greed and we won’t accept any of this any longer.” Warriner is charged with being a public nuisance and indecent exposure.
