Wow. That was quick.

And pretty darn cool.

Less than 11 hours after creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell asked fans to donate to Kickstarter in order to fund a Veronica Mars movie, the project has reached its 30-day goal of $2 million... in under 11 hours!

"My mind is blown," Thomas tells EW of the results. "I’ve been fantasizing about this taking big and had to tell myself, ‘Stop it, Rob, you’re being silly. You’re setting yourself up for disappointment.'

"And now today has exceeded the wildest pipe dream I let myself entertain. Holy cow. We better make a good movie. These amazing fans have stepped up. We better deliver."

Iran is filing a lawsuit against Argo, and while director Ben Affleck was snubbed for Best Director at the Academy Awards, hopefully he can at least win this.

  • Argo Director
  • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Pic

The state-run press is apparently going after internationally-renowned lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre. The suit claims the film presented an Iraniphobic portrayal of the historical conflict.

The film was admittedly pro-America, which is a tad surprising considering Affleck's liberal activism and general anti-war disposition.

But, come on, if you're gonna sue the guy for a movie, let's start with Gigli.

Looks like Universal Pictures and the producers of that Fifty Shades of Grey adult film spoof have settled their legal differences out of court.

50 Shades of Grey Trilogy Covers

Universal and Fifty Shades Ltd., EL James' company filed a lawsuit against Smash Pictures, the makers of Fifty Shades of Grey: a XXX Adaptation.

The producers claimed 50 Shades was in the public domain, while Universal alleged a "willful attempt to capitalize on the reputation of the book."

"The first XXX Adaptation is not a parody ... it does not comment on, criticize, or ridicule the originals. It is a rip-off, plain and simple," the suit read.

George Lucas claims that even before he sold Lucasfilm to Disney, he signed Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher for Star Wars: Episode VII.

His words. Lucas tells Businessweek that "we had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison - or were pretty much in final stages of negotiation."

"Maybe I'm not supposed to say that," Lucas added. "I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them."

"I won't say whether the negotiations were successful or not."

The first poster for The Hangover III has been unveiled - and it may look a tad familiar to some movie fans.

In a hilarious nod to the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise, the photo uses the same tagline ("It All Ends") and the same epic staredown between key characters.

Although this time it's Zach Galifianakis' Alan squaring off against Ken Jeong's Leslie Chow. Not exactly the same stakes as Harry versus Voldemort.

  • Hangover III Poster
  • Final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Poster

Look for Alan to take center stage in the conclusion to this saga and look for The Hangover III to hit theaters on May 24.
