1. You can buy Kim Kardashian's engagement ring from Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' storybook marriage lasted a scant 72 days — but diamonds are forever. Us Weekly reports that Humphries has put the engagement ring he once used to propose to his blushing bride-to-be up for sale at Christie's auction house, where it will be available for bids in October. The report adds that the ring is expected to sell for as much as $500,000 — or one-twentieth of the total cost of their wedding, if you want a number that will make you even angrier. [Us Weekly]

2. The Entourage cast wants more money to star in the Entourage movie
If Entourage is to be believed, star Adrian Grenier is the most beloved and popular actor in Hollywood. So it's no great surprise that he's holding out for more money before he officially signs on to star in the upcoming Entourage movie. Page Six reports that the film has been delayed while producers try to hammer out a deal with several "key members" of the cast, including Grenier and Jerry Ferrara, because it just wouldn't be Entourage without an extended, achingly dull Turtle subplot.

3. Disney wants you to use your iPad during The Little Mermaid
If you like your movies interrupted by glowing screens and screaming children, Disney has a great offer for you. For its re-release of The Little Mermaid, the company has announced that it will offer a movie theater-compatible iPad app called Second Screen Live that lets viewers "interact with the film, play games, sing along, find new surprises, and compete with the audience." And, of course, irritate the hell of everybody else around them. [Fox News]

4. Bill & Ted 3 has been delayed again
For decades, thousands of voice have been united across space and time: We want another Bill & Ted movie! But while both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have said they would be interested in taking another excellent adventure, Hollywood studios continue to insist on being bogus. "There's darkness out there that's keeping it from happening… It's that part of the story where it's looking grim," said Reeves in an interview with MTV News. Maybe they should challenges the producers to a game of Twister. [MTV News]

5. Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac is five hours long
Lars von Trier is famous for directing acclaimed but punishing films like Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, and Antichrist. But his latest film, Nymphomaniac, will up the ante by asking audiences to spend a full five hours on it. Norwegian film site Montages reports that Nymphomaniac will be split into two parts of two and a half hours each, with the possibility of a TV show continuing its story further down the line. Best of all, Nymphomaniac will officially hit Danish theaters on December 25, ensuring that Danish families can all sit down and enjoy the extended story a young woman's sexual awakening just in time for Christmas.
