Here's the Scoop...

Kourtney Kardashian and daughter Penelope Disick celebrated an early Halloween on Monday.

The 37-year-old reality star and 4-year-old Penelope dressed as an evil queen and Frankenstein's bride for Kardashian's Halloween party with her close friends.

"Such an amazing night!! I'm so lucky to have the best friends to celebrate life with," she tweeted after the bash.

Kardashian decked her home with plenty of festive decorations, including a skeleton bride and groom. Makeup artist Joyce Bonelli and hair stylist Jen Atkin were among the guests in attendance.

"Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays," Kardashian wrote on her website. "I still love dressing up just as much as I did when I was younger. The best part of Halloween is finding the perfect costume."

"I'm obsessed with Halloween costumes!" she admitted. "And I also like to get creative -- especially for kids. Instead of buying a whole costume, sometimes just one key piece is all you need to build on."

I would make fun of the Kardashians and their Halloween shindig, but when they invite a makeup artist and a hair stylist to the party there's really nothing I can say to improve upon that. Everyday is Halloween for those laaaddies!

Be Well,
Steve

Peter Jackson co-wrote and is producing 'Mortal Engines' movie
New Zealand filmmaker Peter Jackson has taken to Facebook to announce his next project -- a big-screen adaptation of Philip Reeve's novel Mortal Engines.

"It's been a quiet few months, but I'm very happy to tell you that our next project is now underway," Jackson said in Monday's post.

Jackson is producing the picture through his WingNut Films banner for Universal. He co-wrote the script with Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens,and Christian Rivers is set to start directing in March.

"If you haven't read the books, you should. They present a stunning look into the future, when all of Earth's major cities are now mounted on wheels, roaming across the landscape as massive 'Traction Cities.' Our society has build itself on the principals of Municipal Darwinism - this basically involves the bigger cities hunting down, and consuming, the smaller ones. And that's only the backdrop to an original and emotional personal story," Jackson explained. "Philip Reeve has created a range of intriguing characters, following their adventures in our strange future world through four books - Mortal Engines, Predator's Gold, Infernal Devices and A Darkling Plain. The moment we read these novels, we knew what exciting movies they'd make. I literally can't wait to see them!"

No casting has been announced yet.


Preview of score from J.K. Rowling's 'Fantastic Beasts' released
A preview of James Newton Howard's score from J.K. Rowling's upcoming film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was released on Monday, giving a look into the film's 1920s feel.

Howard composed the score for other blockbuster films like the Hunger Games series and The Dark Knight, and really wanted to be a part of Rowling's new franchise.

"It seemed like an incredible musical opportunity so I submitted a reel of my music," Howard said.

Howard, whose talents won him the role, was then tasked with creating the sound for one of the most anticipated film franchises since Harry Potter.

Howard sat down with Fantastic Beasts director David Yates and producer David Heyman, both of whom had previously worked on the Potter films, to discuss the film's musical direction.

"We talked about how the score would need to encompass many different styles of music and have a broad emotional range," Howard said.

That direction can be heard in a track from the soundtrack titled Tina Takes Newt In/Macusa Headquarters, which was released on Monday.

The first part of the composition scores an interaction between two of the film's main characters, Newt Scamander, played by Eddie Redmayne, and Porpetina "Tina" Goldstein, played by Katherine Waterston.

The film's 1926 setting can be heard in the second part of the song, which is named for the American wizarding headquarters.

"One of my biggest goals in writing the music for Fantastic Beasts was to create memorable melodies," Howard said. "J.K. Rowling's world has always had a great musical legacy and I was hoping to continue that tradition."

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is out in theaters on Nov. 18.

Mel Gibson on upcoming ninth baby: 'Oh sure, just one more'
Mel Gibson isn't too worried about his girlfriend Rosalind Ross giving birth to a child next year as he has experience fathering eight other children.

"Oh, sure, just one more," Gibson joked when asked about his upcoming ninth child in a new interview with Extra alongside Andrew Garfield to promote their latest film, Hacksaw Ridge.

"I'm just there to catch," he continued before noting how he's too old now to get nervous about being a father once again.

"I think my adrenals are worn out so I don't even react anymore."

Gibson, 60, and Ross, 26 announced they were having a child together back in September after dating for two years.

Hacksaw Ridge which is directed by Gibson and stars Garfield as real life World War II Medal of Honor recipient Desmond Doss who refused to fire a weapon on religious grounds and saved 75 of his fellow soldiers, is set to arrive in theaters Nov. 4.

"[Desmond] transcends the ugliness of war in a situation that turns most men into animals... he gets to hone his higher self and do something really beautiful in the midst of that which is life-affirming," Gibson said to Extra of the Oscar hopeful.

The film marks a return for Gibson to the director's chair having previously gotten behind the camera for 1995's Braveheart, 2004's Passion of the Christ and 2006's Apocalypto.

As he mounts his Hollywood comeback, the filmmaker and actor has been chosen to receive the Hollywood Film Awards' Hollywood Director Award during an awards ceremony hosted by James Corden on Nov. 6.
