Sandberg took to Twitter Monday (March 20th) to address critics’ response to the new movie. “On Rotten Tomatoes I just got my lowest critic score and my highest audience score on the same film … I wasn’t expecting a repeat of the first movie critically but I was still a little surprised because I think it’s a good film. Oh well,” he wrote. “As I’ve been saying for a while now I’m very eager to go back to horror (as well as trying some new things).

CHRISTINA RICCI SAYS SHE WAS ONCE THREATENED WITH A LAWSUIT FOR REFUSING TO DO A SEX SCENE: On a recent episode of The View, Christina Ricci revealed that, “Someone threatened to sue me once because I didn’t want to do this sex scene in a certain way,” she said. This came in response to a question about how Hollywood has changed for younger women. “Us older ladies talk about it all the time. It’s amazing to see that they don’t necessarily have to go through the things we had to go through. They’re able to say, ‘I don’t want to do this sex scene,’ ‘I’m not going to be naked.’ They can set boundaries for themselves that we were never allowed to do.”
