Prince George's Caribbean Holiday

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Laughing as she carries her baby son in her arms, Kate Middleton clearly enjoyed taking son Prince George on his first foreign holiday.

Kate jetted out to Mustique just over a week ago with the six-month-old, leaving husband Prince William at home to continue his studies at Cambridge.

The image was captured by a freelance photographer as she was disembarking a British Airways flight in St Vincent before catching a private jet to the exclusive Caribbean island.

Appearing unperturbed by his flight, the third in line to the throne was wearing a white-and-blue babygro and a patterned sun hat against the fierce heat.

William has hinted his son has a healthy appetite and these new pictures, published in Hello! magazine this week, show him to be a bouncing little boy.

His mother, looking chic and casual in a Ralph Lauren top, jeggings and pumps by Mint Velvet, seemed to be relishing the prospect of some winter sun.

She was accompanied in her First Class cabin by two bodyguards and her brother, James Middleton, who gallantly carried off her Brics hand luggage for her.

Tom Cruise being sued for $1 BILLION

The film came out more than two years ago, but only recently has a complaint been made that there is a major problem with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.

And Tom Cruise, 51, is getting sued for $1 billion because of it.

On Tuesday RadarOnline reported screenwriter Timothy Patrick McLanahan filed legal documents in December claiming the hit action movie, which sold $600m worth of tickets worldwide, came from his script Head On. Paramount Pictures is also named in the suit.

Tom's rep did not return calls to MailOnline.

"In 1998 I had written a screenplay called Head On," he wrote in legal documents obtained by Radar.

"After submitting it to the U S Copyright Office, Head On received a copyright certificate protecting its material and author from unauthorized use."

The writer then detailed the trail of hands the script went through, starting with William Morris Agency, which sent it to CAA, where Tom is a client.

McLanahan is claiming his script was put in front of Cruise's agent Rick Nicita, who is married to the star's production partner Paula Wagner.

In the end, there was not that much interest in Head On.

In 2011 when Tom's big-budget Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol came out, McLanahan thought it seemed awfully familiar.

"I immediately recognised that the scripts for this movie had been illegally written and produced from Head On's 1998 copyright," the writer claimed in documents.

Radar did not detail how Head On and Ghost Protocol were similar.

The way the writer came to the $1 billion amount is he added up ticket sales ($694,710,000), DVD and blue ray sales ($144.5 million), and movie rentals and subscription sales and budget ($145 million), according to the site.

A-listers took major pay cuts for Monuments Men

It's got a starry line-up including George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett and Bill Murray but Monuments Men was made on a budget.

George, who co-wrote, co-produced and directed the movie which focuses on a group on the frontlines in Europe during World War II as they attempt to save precious art stolen by Nazis, called in favours from his famous friends to ensure it got made.

Revealing they earned about a 10th of 15th of their usual rate, he told Variety: "If you pay everybody a full boatload, it's a $150 million film. You just can't do it. Everybody worked for super cheap, like crazy cheap."

However, he admitted they negotiated a deal where they will get a significant cut of the profits if it does well.

Clooney even flew to Australia to woo Blanchett to the project.

The film also stars Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin and Hugh Bonneville.
