Seven days in entertainment

The biggest events from last week including Sean Penn’s new movie ”Milk,” the Biggie biopic, Madonna and more

Posted on

You can find a photo of Iron Man anywhere this week, but we’re the only ones who have exclusive sneak peeks at two highly anticipated biopics: Milk (based on the life of San Francisco politician Harvey Milk) and Notorious (which pays homage to rapper Notorious B.I.G., who was slain in 1997). Elsewhere, Madonna auditioned for the big-screen remake of The A-Team. Why else would she be dressed like Mr. T?
