Sweet sixteen! Kylie Jenner receives online birthday well wishes

North West was born on 15 June, surprising her parents and awaiting fans of the couple by arriving five weeks early. Kardashian may have given birth over two months ago yet no one, beyond Kardashian and West's immediate circle, has seen photographs of the child. The couple, according to reports in TMZ , have already rejected an offer of $3 million for the snaps and it look as though they will continue to say no to offers. Initially the couple were, allegedly, considering donating the proceeds of the pictures to charity, but decided against it - because it's hard being a poor little rich couple isn't it? If they had gone down this generous route, they would have followed the likes of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who sold the photographs of their new born twins (Vivienne and Knox) for $14 million to People and Hello magazine. The proceeds were donated to charity, hardly surprising considering Jolie is a UN ambassador. <br>Source:

The Butler: 'Not A Movie, It's A Movement' Says Director

The main potential toy here is Dusty Crophopper (voiced by Dane Cook, continuing this seriesa tradition of employing one-note standup comedians), a lowly crop-dusting plane with dreams of winning a big, around-the-world aerial race. Dusty is not abuilt for it,a but with some heart and try, Kim Kardashian reggie bush he just might be able to arise abovea his station. Alas, his dreams go unfulfilled as he spends 45 years spraying liquid manure on corn until he is dragged off, unmourned, to the scrapyard by a sassy talking hearse, played by MoaNique. Eventually, Dusty qualifies and goes up against a host of national stereotypes for the championship. They are the kinds of competitors/eventual friends who donat even need a descriptor beyond their nationality to understand, including Mexico, England, Canada (at least here; word is theyare rebranding this planeas nationality for other markets) and India, which is at least mildly ironic, given the filmas message about not sticking to your preordained place in the world. The only nationality that pulls double-duty is, naturally, aMerica, which gives us not only our underdog hero but our overconfident, cheating, three-time-champion villain, Ripslinger.

A father-son love affair that transcended Kim Kardashian store race. It wasn't until we started shooting some of the atrocities that happened in the South that I realized that this was on another level. <br>Source:

This movie was originally intended as a direct-to-video release, but when you can airlift this much money duty-free, why not book a theatrical reservation, too? Dane Cook is the voice of Dusty, a crop-duster with dreams of being a celebrated racing plane. With the coaching of World War II-era bomber-type Skipper (Stacy Keach) and his best bud, a fuel truck named Chug (Brad Garrett), Dusty enters a round-the-world race to prove hes got the right stuff. Dustys big secret, though, is that hes a plane with a fear of heights. (As a crop-duster, he can stay low.) But with a new, international group of high-flyin friends like Bulldog (John Cleese) a Union Jack-decorated, stiff-upper-propeller British plane and a potential love interest in the Indian jet-setter Ishani (Priyanka Chopra), no turbulence will get in the way. <br>Source:
