What the movie will do differently, though, is get “far dirtier than the show ever was,” according to Johnson. In fact, he even admitted that co-star Zac Efron gave him a run for his money.”The ladies were too impressed for my liking with Zac’s body when he was filming,” he told The Sun.Johnson conceded that Efron worked hard, which helped them “keep the airbrushing budget low.” And he must not have been the only one. The previews we’ve seen to this point have hinted at all the skin Johnson promised, with super-toned bodies everywhere.”Plot was important, don’t get me wrong, but so was sorting out our slow-motion runs,” Johnson said.Ah, the famed slow-motion runs. They were a staple of the original “Baywatch” TV series, and now they are coming back with a vengeance. Producer and star Dwayne Johnson owned it, openly admitting in a recent interview with the U.K.’s Sun that they “worked hard to make sure the flesh quota was high.” Since they’ve got it, they’re apparently going to flaunt it.”There’s more gratuitous boobs, bums, abs, whatever per minute than you can imagine,” he said.The pro wrestler-turned-actor has always been known for his muscled physique, but his abs aren’t the only impressive ones among the film’s cast. He went so far as to say the action-comedy will make its predecessor look “like children’s TV.””Baywatch,” in all its gratuitous, dirty glory, hits theaters on May 26.[via: The Sun] Posted April 10, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongReady for a naked truth?The “Baywatch” movie is going to be full of tanned, toned, and well-oiled skin.
ET on NBC. The sketch centers on the ad’s earnest, hopeful director (played by “SNL” cast member Beck Bennett) as he realizes he has made a mistake when it’s too late to stop the commercial from shooting.It’s both amusing and a little sad to watch him go from thinking he’s making a powerful statement to coming to see that his plans play on cultural stereotypes, are tone deaf, and just are not going to make for “like, the best ad ever.” We also find it a little cringe-worthy, just like the commercial itself.Watch the “SNL” spoof below.”SNL” airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. Saturday’s episode took on the controversial commercial, mocking Pepsi and Jenner in a behind-the-scenes parody video.

Posted April 10, 2017 by Kelly WooJon Snow may have been declared King in the North on “Game of Thrones,” but he’s not looking for glory, according to actor Kit Harington.The “Game of Thrones” star is shrugging off one of the biggest Jon Snow theories still left unanswered in either the books or the HBO series. He’s got very little ego on him.”Well, it’s just like The Prince That Was Promised not to care!Still, there’s all kinds of evidence that Jon is the Prince. You know, I think that’s what’s great about him. Like us on Facebook. That’s what I love about him, so I don’t really care about it either. I think Jon would hate the term ‘The Prince That Was Promised.’ If someone turned to him and said, ‘You’re The Prince That Was Promised,’ he just wouldn’t pay much attention. The theory proposes that Jon is “The Prince That Was Promised” — essentially a reborn hero who will save the world again from darkness. And now that his true lineage has been revealed — with the theory “R+L=J” finally confirmed — he seems like the best candidate for the title.”Game of Thrones” Season 7 premieres July 16 on HBO.Want more stuff like this? But when The Huffington Post asked Harington about the theory, he had this to say:”I think you have to wait and see what happens this year, and if we find out anything more about Jon.
When CMT rescued “Nashville” after cancellation by ABC, it raised eyebrows by ordering 22 episodes. It’ll be shorter than previous seasons — just 16 episodes.A shorter season is more in line with cable network dramas, though. CMT had previously announced the addition of two new regulars, Rachel Bilson (“Hart of Dixie”) and Kaitlin Doubleday (“Empire”).A third new face will be joining them — Jeffrey Nordling is joining the cast as Brad Maitland, described as an “extremely successful, charming, egotistical, narcissistic owner of the most successful record label in Nashville.”Want more stuff like this?

Since Gatiss has “done four episodes,” that means Tycho will appear in two installments this season. Like us on Facebook. I can’t tell you anything more obviously, mostly because I don’t know anything. “I’ve done four episodes now and there’s two more, they think,” he said. Which means the “two more, they think” would be in the eighth and final season.Tycho could play a significant role in the battle for the Iron Throne. The Lannisters are heavily in debt to the Iron Bank, and he is likely to arrive in King’s Landing demanding payment — just when Cersei needs funds to deal with the arrival of Daenerys Targaryen.”Game of Thrones” Season 7 premieres July 16 on HBO.Want more stuff like this?

Tycho has appeared in two episodes so far — in season 4, when Stannis Baratheon asks for a loan and in season 5, when Mace Tyrell travels to Braavos to discuss the crown’s debt. What I love about it is that I don’t have any stake in it.”While Gatiss didn’t reveal his scene partners, he did let an interesting tidbit slip.
This one, from the same folks who made the two successful “God’s Not Dead” movies, was expected to debut between $3 and $6 million.It opened toward the low end of expectations, premiering in 10th place with an estimated $3.9 million. Posted April 10, 2017 by Gary SusmanAt the multiplex this weekend, you could feel the excitement building… With potential ticketbuyers hoarding their cash until next weekend, here’s a breakdown of what happened this weekend: Nothing Could Beat “Boss Baby”Last week’s champ is still riding the wave of strong word-of-mouth, Alec Baldwin’s current omnipresence (he’s been prettymuchinescapable the last few weeks), and the lack of better options. Indeed, word-of-mouth on the film was actually pretty good, with its overall CinemaScore grade of B+ rising to an A- for most viewers over age 50.The other plus of catering to an older audience is that the target audience doesn’t all rush to the theater on opening weekend, so if the film can stay booked for a few weeks, that word-of-mouth will pay off with steady sales over time. That’s still not bad for a movie playing on just 1,174 screens. Like “Smurfs,” “Case” was scheduled with Easter in mind, so the film may yet do more more business than its modest debut suggests.Why Aren’t More People Talking About Anne Hathaway’s “Colossal”?Maybe it’s because the Internet still loves to hate her. Or maybe its because her offbeat indie opened with just under $126,000 in four theaters. This weekend, by comparison, not much happened, even though there were three new wide releases.If nothing else, the meh results for this weekend’s new features prove the importance of timing. And the families who saw “Lost Village” really liked it, judging by the the strong A grade at CinemaScore. for next weekend.That’s when “The Fate of the Furious” hits theaters and, most likely, it will dominate the box office for the rest of April. No one wanted to release a new movie with young-male appeal this weekend, just to see it get run over by Vin Diesel and his racing crew next week.Overall box office was down 28 percent from last week, since potential moviegoers either found little compelling among this weekend’s new wide releases, or else they’re keeping their wallets shut until Dom and company pry them open next weekend. Still, “Boss Baby” remains on the rise (in its second weekend, it actually added 56 screens, for a total of 3,829), while “Beauty” is finally waning after four weeks in theaters.RIP, “Smurfs” Movie FranchiseWhy did Sony put “Smurfs: The Lost Village” up against fellow family films “Boss Baby” and “Beast”? So “Going in Style,” made for an absurdly low reported budget of $25 million (then again, director Zach Braff paid for his last movie with Kickstarter donations, so $25 million is a big step up for him), stands a good chance of making a profit before it retires to cable and home video.”The Case for Christ” Proves Faith-Based Movies Are Losing Steam
Movies aimed at churchgoing audiences are always a wild card when it comes to predicting how big they’ll open. Sure, with its estimated $26.3 million take this weekend, “Boss Baby” just edged out “Beauty and the Beast” (an estimated $25.0 million). So you have to conclude that the marketing would have propelled the film to a much higher gross if it had been given a release date further away from two other family-film smashes.”Going in Style” Did Better Than You ThoughtNo one expected much from the geezer-heist caper comedy remake either, with predictions running below $10 million. This despite critical scorn (44 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), usually deadly for a film aimed at an older audience that still cares what critics think.Still, that’s a largely underserved audience, and the film’s trio of beloved Oscar-winning stars — Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin — was enough of a draw to overcome bad reviews. But the film didn’t even do that well, winding up with an estimated $14.0 million.One could argue that Sony didn’t care that much about positioning; after all, the “Smurfs” franchise typically plays much better overseas than here (in fact, it’s already made an estimated $42.0 million abroad), and the movie didn’t cost that much (at a reported price of $60 million, the studio saved tens of millions by making this one strictly a cartoon, instead of a live-action/cartoon blend like the first two installments).Yet Sony went all out on social media to promote it, and the filmmakers made a point of increasing the movie’s girl appeal (there are many female Smurfs in the movie, not just one). Yet the movie opened with an estimated $12.5 million. Still, the movie earned an estimated $31,452 per screen (nearly five times as much per screen as “Boss Baby”), scoring far and away the highest per-screen average of the week. That bodes well for “Colossal” as it expands to more theaters in weeks to come.Moviegoers Saved Their Money for “Fate of the Furious”Notice how many genre movies were hanging out in the lower reaches of the Top Ten?”Ghost in the Shell,” “Power Rangers,” “Kong: Skull Island,” “Logan,” and “Get Out” — all of them weeks old, all of them scraping by on a $4 to $8 million take for the weekend. You can sort of see the reasoning: With kids out of school for spring break and Easter on the way, the timing may have seemed right for the return of the little blue guys from the ’80s.Still, putting out another animated film the weekend after “Boss Baby” seemed like a suicidal move, which is why predictions for the third “Smurfs” movie were only in the high teens.

But now, the sensates want to fight back.Of course, their resistance is hampered by the complications in their personal lives, which underwent significant changes in last December’s Christmas special.”Sense8″ Season 2 begins streaming May 1Want more stuff like this? Posted April 10, 2017 by Kelly Woo”Our senses are evolving,” a character intones in the first trailer for Netflix’s “Sense8” Season 2. And that scares the hell out of some people.In Season 2, the interconnected cluster of eight people we met in the first season — Capheus (Toby Onwumere), Kala (Tina Desai), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Nomi (Jamie Clayton), Riley (Tuppence Middleton) , Sun (Doona Bae), Will (Brian J.

at the university of hard work and pain.”12. “Singin'” went over budget by $620,000, for an ultimate cost of $2.5 million. So you’re watching Hagen dub Reynolds dubbing Hagen.19. The role of the hilariously annoying diva Lina Lamont was written with Judy Holliday in mind; she’d been a performing partner of Comden and Green’s back in New York before finding fame on Broadway and in Hollywood via “Born Yesterday.” But when that film won Holliday a Best Actress Oscar in 1951, she was suddenly too big a star for MGM to hire for the “Singin'” supporting role. Contrary to myth, the rain did not have milk in it (supposedly needed to make the raindrops show better on camera), nor was the number shot in just one take. For his part, Kelly recognized what a stern disciplinarian he’d been and praised Reynolds for coming through in the end. Rather, it took several days to film, in part because there was a water shortage at the time in Culver City. Her singing was dubbed by Betty Noyes, while her spoken dialog was actually uttered by Hagen. Years later, Reynolds would famously say that “Singin’ in the Rain” and childbirth were the hardest experiences of her life.11. Kelly, too, suffered for his art. The part went instead to her Broadway understudy, Jean Hagen.7. Kelly was convinced he could train Reynolds to do the film’s complicated dance numbers.9. Plus, the film made a star of Debbie Reynolds; when she died in December 2016, “Singin'” was still the film that featured most prominently in remembrances of her.Hard to believe, for a film that plays like the screen expression of pure joy, but “Singin'” was a miserable experience to make, nearly ruining the health of its three principal stars. “Also, she was a great copyist, and she could pick up the most complicated routine without too much difficulty… Even after it was filmed to Kelly’s satisfaction, he felt the tap sounds were insufficient, so he danced the number again in a dubbing room — both his own part and Reynolds’.13. It’s amazing that I could keep up with him and Donald O’Connor.”10. Kelly sloshed through it all, but, as with “Good Morning,” the dancing sound effects had to be punched up later.17. Most notoriously, Reynolds bloodied her feet tap dancing for 15 hours to film the “Good Morning” number and had to be carried off the set. Originally, the producers thought of Howard Keel, but Kelly got the part when it was rewritten to be an ex-vaudeville singer/dancer, instead of a cowboy actor.5. The role of Cosmo was originally meant for Oscar Levant, who had played a similar role as Kelly’s wisecracking best friend in “An American in Paris” the year before. Indeed, the movie originated as a way to exploit the back catalog of songs that Freed and partner Nacio Herb Brown had written for various MGM movies between 1929 and 1939.3. Remarkably, “Singin'” was nominated for just two Oscars — for Lennie Hayton’s instrumental score and for Hagen’s supporting performance — and lost both.23. “By the end, my feet and ankles were a mess of bruises,” he said.15. Yet that was enough to make her a star, after nearly a decade as a chorus dancer in various MGM films. Kelly proved a brutal taskmaster. Not only was he head of the “Freed Unit,” the MGM creative team behind so many of the studio’s celebrated musicals, but he also wrote most of the songs in “Singin’ in the Rain.”2. The film took a toll on O’Connor, too, particularly the “Make ‘Em Laugh” number. But when Kelly (who not only starred in “Singin'” but also choreographed it and co-directed it with Stanley Donen) started playing up the film’s dance elements, the role went instead to experienced hoofer O’Connor.6. “Every so often he would yell at me and make me cry,” Reynolds recalled. When it was finally over, the three of them (Kelly, Reynolds, and Donald O’Connor) never worked together again. When he did return, he learned that a technical glitch had ruined all the “Make ‘Em Laugh” footage, and he had to shoot the entire number again the next day. Comprised of slapstick gags O’Connor had performed during his vaudeville days, it famously climaxed with O’Connor running up a wall and doing a backflip. Yet it was Reynolds who was lip-synching. It earned $3.3 million in North America and another $2.4 million overseas, making it a sizable hit for the times.22. Cast as romantic lead Kathy Selden, Debbie Reynolds had no dance experience, though she was a skilled gymnast and had proved her singing chops in small roles in earlier MGM films.8. Screenwriters Betty Comden and Adolph Green, who came up with the idea of building a plot around Freed and Brown’s songs that addressed the tumultuous transition from silence to sound in Hollywood, also wrote the movie’s only two new tunes, “Moses Supposes” and “Make ‘Em Laugh” — though the melody for the latter sounds suspiciously like that of “Be a Clown,” a Cole Porter song from Kelly’s “The Pirate.”4. Fortunately, this idea was scrapped and replaced with the “Broadway Ballet” sequence.20.Cyd Charisse had no lines in the movie and appeared in it just for a few minutes, as the vamp in the “Broadway Ballet” sequence. Read on to learn how “Singin'” overcame its grueling production history to become one of the most beloved films of all-time.1. Initially, the movie’s climactic dance number was to be an extended Western spoof, with Kelly, Reynolds, and O’Connor as covered-wagon pioneers who save themselves from Indian would-be scalpers by charming their captors with their song-and-dance skills. Her very next movie role was the lead opposite Astaire in Comden and Green’s “The Band Wagon.”21. During the filming of the title number, in which Kelly gets famously soaked, the star was running a fever of more than 100 degrees. At the time, the movie was considered a lesser achievement to Kelly’s ambitious “An American in Paris,” which won Best Picture the year before. With Reynolds’ death, the last surviving star of the film is Rita Moreno. She was supposed to get her own musical number, either “Make Hay While the Sun Shines” or “I’ve Got a Feelin’ You’re Foolin’,” but the scene was cut from the script and just an excerpt from “Feelin'” used in the “Beautiful Girl” montage. Indeed, one day, Fred Astaire found Reynolds crying under a piano and consoled her by offering to coach her himself. Posted April 10, 2017 by Gary SusmanIt took only a casual gesture — Ryan Gosling twirling around a lamppost in 2016’s Oscar-winning musical “La La Land” — to remind moviegoers how large “Singin’ in the Rain” still looms in our collective imagination.Released 65 years ago this week, on April 11, 1952, this classic is widely considered the greatest movie musical ever made, with Gene Kelly’s downpour-drenched performance of the title tune one of the most iconic moments in movie history. Sounds of dancers splashing their feet in water-filled buckets were provided by the movie’s uncredited assistant choreographers, future musical stars Carol Haney and Gwen Verdon.18. “But it took a lot of patience for him to work with someone who had never danced before. The EGOT winner and current star of Netflix’s “One Day at a Time” was 19 when she played Lina’s friend, starlet Zelda Zanders. (Plus, the fake rain made his wool suit shrink.)16. Hagen lost the supporting actress prize to Gloria Grahame for her nine-minute performance in “The Bad and the Beautiful,” another Hollywood satire shot at the same time on a neighboring MGM soundstage.24. “Fortunately, Debbie was strong as an ox,” he said. Much of the credit for “Singin’ in the Rain” belongs to MGM producer Arthur Freed, who, like Donald O’Connor’s Cosmo Brown, rose from silent-era mood-music pianist to head of the studio’s musical department. Kelly wasn’t even the first choice to play Don Lockwood. One more dubbing-imitates-art story: The “Would You?” number is supposed to show how Lina lip-synchs while Kathy’s voice is dubbed for hers. The 19-year-old was, however, youthful enough for the part, which led Kelly to cast her instead of older, more experienced musical actresses like Judy Garland, June Allyson, or Ann Miller. He managed to film the whole number in one day, but the shoot left the four-pack-a-day smoker so out-of-breath, and the soundstage’s concrete floors left his joints in such pain, that he had to rest for three days before returning to work.14.
However, they cautioned that the story may not end there, and they expressed hope for the “opportunity” to “transition” the series in Season 7.Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz teased what’s next to Entertainment Weekly, after Henry’s (Jared Gilmore) Author powers started to take over in Season 6, Episode 16, “Mother’s Little Helper.”Kitsis explained that Henry’s powers are escalating because “we’ve reached the end of the very first book. We’ve been wondering this since the first rumors came out about OUAT hitting the “reset button” if there’s a next season. The next episode, April 16’s “Awake,” should bring us good news for Snow and Charming.Want more stuff like this? We know that this story is coming to an end, but we don’t know how it’s ending, and I think what’s unknown is also what’s so scary about it.”OUAT Season 6 has 22 episodes, and Horowitz revealed that the last two episode titles are “The Final Battle Part 1” and “The Final Battle Part 2.” Those episodes will air in May.I’m Henry watching #OnceUponATimepic.twitter.com/EjlBMcgO9J

Posted April 10, 2017 by Gina CarboneThe “Once Upon a Time” showrunners just admitted “some people’s stories are going to be completed” at the end of Season 6. We’re excited if we get an opportunity, and a Season 7, to show everyone that.”What does that mean? Will Henry’s story continue, along with maybe a few others?Lana Parilla (Regina/Evil Queen) said it’s a confusing situation for the stars as well, telling EW:”Everyone’s a bit baffled by the whole concept because we don’t really know what that means. And us actors don’t really know what that means. So Kitsis compared it to the transition after high school:”Yeah, you completed high school and that was the end of high school, but then there was the next chapter. Will there be a Season 7 or not? At a certain point, people say, ‘When are they going to get their happy endings?’ By the end of this year, some people’s stories are going to be completed — whether they’re good or bad, we’ll have to wait and see.” Horowitz jumped in to point out that “‘completed’ is a loaded term” and fans may jump to the wrong conclusion there. For us, we feel like after six seasons, there’s a chapter of people’s lives that we’re ready to wrap up, but there’s a big future, like with anybody, and a transition. Like us on Facebook.

And I don’t feel we needed to set it up. You just didn’t see it. Posted April 10, 2017 by Gina Carbone”The Walking Dead” showrunner is so fond of a scene that didn’t air in the Season 7 finale that, in his mind, it “absolutely did happen.” We just didn’t get to see it on screen.

Posted April 10, 2017 by Gina CarboneYour mission, should you choose to accept it, is to get hyped for “Mission: Impossible 6,” which comes out in July 2018.Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt is back, along with Rebecca Ferguson, with Jeremy Renner not in play for MI6, but Superman himself Henry Cavill joining the team.Director Christopher McQuarrie announced the official start of filming:Light the fuse… In February while prepping this movie, McQuarrie teased the next big stunts to Empire Podcast:”I may have found something today. I came to Tom with a picture of something and Tom looked at it and said, ‘That’s awesome! However, he cautioned that this stunt would not be the opener. Like us on Facebook. What seemed like an impossible task was made into less of a mission by my constant companion. It does not start with action. That was the hardest pitch of this movie.”McQuarrie also said we’ll see “a very different Ethan Hunt, I can promise you that.” After five films, the director said he didn’t really know Ethan yet, so this time, “I want an emotional journey for this character, and Tom really embraced it.'”Mission: Impossible 6” is currently scheduled for release on July 27, 2018.Want more stuff like this?

He’s a friend from work!”Yeah, but this time they’re more like rivals from work, engaged in their own powerhouse “Civil War.”Here’s the trailer, set to Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song”:And here’s the new poster Marvel shared at the same time, showing off Chris Hemsworth’s new hairdo:Check out the brand new poster for Marvel Studios’ #ThorRagnarok, in theaters November 3rd!
We cherish her memory and legacy as Princess Leia, and will always strive to honor everything she gave to Star Wars.””Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens December 15. She was our princess, our general, and more importantly, our friend. I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. We are still hurting from her loss. As the Daily News Put it, “It is understood that CGI will not be used to recreate Leia.”Instead, it sounds like director Colin Trevorrow and company will use cut scenes from director Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” to include Fisher in Episode IX. So including further footage of her in the next film might be the best way to continue with the plan to have Leia in every movie.”Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t,” Todd Fisher said of himself and Billie Lourd. We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher’s performance as Princess or General Leia Organa.Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family. Episode IX is scheduled for release in 2019.Want more stuff like this? “[Carrie is] as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. “I’m not the only part in that equation, but I think the people deserve to have her. You may recall the rumors that came out in January that Episode IX might include a CGI Fisher; and StarWars.com issued a statement to clear up that talk:”We don’t normally respond to fan or press speculation, but there is a rumor circulating that we would like to address. Posted April 10, 2017 by Gina CarboneCarrie Fisher’s legacy will continue into “Star Wars: Episode IX.” The late “Star Wars” icon’s brother, Todd Fisher, told the New York Daily News that Disney/Lucasfilm want to bring Princess/General Leia back for Episode IX, and both he and Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, have given the studios rights to use recent footage for the final movie of the new trilogy. But we loved every second she was with us, and this might be the happy medium we need to keep seeing her without the use of a CGI. Like us on Facebook. She’s owned by them.”Nah, she was never owned by anyone. After Fisher died in December 2016, it was reported that she had finished filming her scenes for “The Last Jedi,” which opens this coming December 2017. I think the legacy should continue.” He said he wasn’t sure how Leia would fit into the upcoming storyline.
