Posted May 18, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongCreative solutions aren’t always good ones.That’s a big takeaway from the latest trailer for “The House.” Released by Roadshow Thursday, the preview showcases stars Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell, who play Kate and Scott, a married couple determined to send their daughter to the college of her dreams, even though they can’t afford it. Of course, running an underground casino isn’t easy, and all sorts of crazy hijinks ensue.The trailer demonstrates just how insane the situation quickly becomes. With their neighbor Frank (Jason Mantzoukas) offering guidance, the two decide to run a gambling operation out of their basement. As the casino takes off, their daughter grows suspicious, law enforcement starts breathing down their necks, and a little intimidation takes a bloody turn. Not surprisingly, things get a little NSFW in the preview, so keep that in mind when you watch below.”The House” is set to open in theaters on June 30.
Although Season 7’s ratings did rank below all but the first two seasons of the show, according to Deadline, it still made an impressive showing. The Season 7 finale, for example, topped its competition that week. On top of that, viewership for the season as a whole beat out popular series like “Empire” and “The Big Bang Theory,” according to Sapan. Posted May 18, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongSay what you will about “The Walking Dead” Season 7’s ratings dip, but AMC isn’t worried.The most recent season of the horror drama series didn’t bring in the ratings the network has become accustomed to in recent years, but CEO Josh Sapan made it clear Thursday that he has faith in “The Walking Dead” and doesn’t see it going anywhere anytime soon. He doesn’t seem to have any qualms about the show’s upcoming eighth season.Rest assured: This definitely isn’t the ratings version of the zombie apocalypse.[via: THR] He wrote off the drop as “some minor erosion” while speaking to analysts, THR reports.”It’s pretty alive and vital,” he said of the show, “and there’s a long time that we’re going to be playing with ‘The Walking Dead.'” Sapan’s reassurances are valid.
He literally sort of washes ashore.He’s trying to keep it a secret why he’s back, and what happened, but we’ll find out later on — particularly in Episode 8, we’ll find out what happened, and what this big secret is. Someone people can look to as a means of relief, be it comedic relief or musical relief, whatever. That’s what I’ll tell you. Yeah, and since I had no one to bounce things off of, I’d spend a great deal of time sitting back and watching the world, and less time participating in the world. ‘Lemonade!’ And then I saw the f*cking water that I was supposed to be in and I wasn’t a fan because I do not swim. And the world produces some pretty peculiar things, so I just report on them.Are we going to be seeing you in anything outside of the show sometime soon?Yeah, I’m filming a movie this summer called “Departures,” and I’m in negotiations for another project … That’s very important to me.I’m sure many celebrities have had moments like these, but the stories I hear from people who follow me and watch the show are so moving. These characters are still traveling through life and trying to better themselves. I didn’t even think “Peeno Noir” was going to be a thing. He’s got this job that kind of threw a monkey wrench in his plans. It’s given me an opportunity to be sort of … And it will be every bit as ridiculous as “Peeno Noir” was.Is it going to go viral, do you think?I don’t know, I don’t know! Posted May 18, 2017 by Scott HuverWhen “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” gave Kimmy’s roommate Titus Andromedon relationship lemons, star Tituss Burgess made lemonade: Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” to be precise.As the Netflix sitcom returns for a third season May 19th, one of the most hotly anticipated sequences teased in the trailers is Titus’s recreation to the pop superstar’s hugely popular song sensation of 2016, complete with some baseball bat bashing, after his burgeoning romance with Mike the construction worker hits a rocky patch. how’s the proper way to say this? And even though the sequence inspired a little initial trepidation, Burgess admits he eventually dove right in — literally.”They showed me some songs in advance of the table read,” recalls Burgess, “and I’m reading it and I’m like, ‘This rhyming scheme is awfully close to … I’ve had this one lady come up to me. So it was lovely — and I love Beyonce, so what was there not to love about that episode?”Burgess joined Moviefone to offer a peek into the equally unbreakable Titus’s Season 3 path, as well as to reveal how performing in an outrageously funny comedy has had some serious emotional resonance in his life.Moviefone: We left Titus in an interesting space at the end of the season. So I will let you all tell me.When did you realize you had such a great aptitude for comedy? Can you tease a good one without ruining the joke?There’s a song that we sing about a particular part of the female anatomy. But yes, you will. but I better not say it! I musicalize some very traumatic moments in an attempt to move through life. It’s just more than just being on a TV show and being famous. I didn’t need other people around to tell me when something was particularly funny — I don’t know if this is coming out right! Truly, even sitting in traffic; when the horns are honking I’ll notice how they’re harmonized. Her husband had just divorced her. And it seemed so lovely and so appropriate that that’s how he’d exorcise his demons in the face of heartbreak. Some of the comedy they give you to do is almost cartoon-level brilliant. And, yes, soon. It’s still Titus flailing about, doing the best he can in an attempt to be a good person. Ultimately, there was a lot of people around to make sure I didn’t drown!””I was mostly curious as to where it fit in the scheme of the narrative,” he admitted. She said she was depressed. Tell me where we pick up with him and especially his relationship journey. You’d be surprised at the number of situations Titus finds himself in, trying to be a good person.One of the things that I really love about this show is you guys go wall-to-wall with the funny, but you’re still saying something with the show. He gets an opportunity to go on a cruise. It was a long story, but the long story short, she said “It was so lovely that I could have you in my home as often as I needed you.” That’s a big deal. The music aptitude, I imagine, was something you probably knew pretty early on in life.I’m an only child, so I spent a great deal of time entertaining myself. Tell me what you like about being able to play that with so much funny on top of it.It’s largely how I live my life. Titus rarely lands an audition gig, so he gets this gig, he goes on this cruise — and he comes back prematurely. Do you know what I mean? So it doesn’t go lost on me, what we do, and I think we need some relief now more than ever.You get to play some of the show’s biggest, most outrageous moments. “It’s one thing to do a parody, but it’s another thing to do an homage and to use it as a dramatic device. Tituss Burgess: That is correct: a little monkey wrench into their relationship, which was still early on for those two. That’s a big deal. You guys decide. So being inside the world of “Kimmy Schmidt,” it makes perfect sense for me — for us — to be able to shove a lot of heart, a lot of human sentiment, into the most preposterous of comedic moments.How has this role and this job changed your life?It has given me, and the world will soon see, an opportunity to bring light to some issues concerning minorities and people in the LGBTQ community that we’ve not seen before.
Instead, the Oscar-winning actress confirmed her stripper pole escapades in a new Facebook post, adding, “I had a BLAST that night.”RadarOnline posted video of Lawrence partying on April 27 at the Beverly Hills Club in Vienna, Austria, where she was filming “Red Sparrow.” She reportedly arrived with three men, a woman, and a bodyguard, and witnesses dished on her night out:”Jennifer seemed drunk, crawling on all fours around the stage and bending over for men to ogle. I’m not going to apologize, I had a BLAST that night. Or not.Jen took to Facebook to set the record straight, in a pretty hilarious, very JLaw little note:Look,
Nobody wants to be reminded that they tried to dance on a stripper pole by the internet. Like us on Facebook. Want more stuff like this? –JenApologize? It was one of my best friend’s birthdays and I dropped my paranoia guard for one second to have fun. How do we get her to invite us next time? Are you kidding? She kissed one guy, and even started dry-humping him while they danced! Ps that’s not a bra it’s an Alexander Wang top and I’m not gonna lie, I think my dancings pretty good. Even with no core strength. Posted May 18, 2017 by Gina CarboneIf you’re waiting for Jennifer Lawrence to regret getting naughty at a Vienna strip club, in recently leaked footage, you’ll want to grab another drink ’cause it’ll be a long wait. At some point during the night, she lost her blouse, so she was only wearing a bra for the more scandalous dancing!”How terribly scandalous!

Netflix didn’t release a premiere date, with the teaser just saying “Coming Soon.”[via: Variety, Deadline]Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook. Netflix has a deep respect for my father’s original work and the many people it inspired. They are the perfect partners to create this next epic chapter in ‘The Dark Crystal’ story for new fans and the loyal fans who have waited so long for more adventures from this world.”Shooting is scheduled to begin this fall. In this new adventure, three Gelflings discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, and set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.Netflix released the first teaser in tandem with the series announcement:Louis Leterrier (“Now You See Me”) will direct and executive produce the series, produced through The Jim Henson Company.Here’s a statement from Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company:”Louis Leterrier is passionate about the world of ‘The Dark Crystal’ and has an incredible creative vision for the series. Posted May 18, 2017 by Gina CarboneThe late Jim Henson said he was more proud of “The Dark Crystal” than any other film he made, and now a 10-episode prequel series is coming to Netflix.”The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” will be set many years before the events of the original 1982 movie, which Henson co-directed by Frank OZ. He brings this passion to every facet of the production as he leads the talented team of artists and writers that are bringing this entire universe to life.
I am getting my happy ending! Posted May 18, 2017 by Gina CarboneABC recently released the bios of Rachel Lindsay’s 31 suitors on “The Bachelorette” Season 13, and she just confirmed that, yep, she picked one of ’em. But it’s hard when you’re so excited about something and you can’t share it with everyone. (We’re going with Blake K as an early favorite to be the 2018 Bachelor.) And if you’re interested in those spoilers about who she reportedly picks, head over here.[Via: THR, People]Want more stuff like this? We just really want to get to know each other.””The Bachelorette” premieres this Monday, May 22 at 9 p.m., after “Dancing With the Stars.” Check out all of her contestant bios. That said, she also admitted she and her fiancé don’t even know each other that well and they’re looking forward to being able to spend more time together … which they can’t even do, at least publicly, until the season ends.”I’m used to a long-distance relationship where we can’t see each other all the time and we can’t be public. But spoilers also just came out yesterday about who Rachel reportedly picks in the end, so maybe the producers wanted to return the story to Rachel and let her do the talking.The 31-year-old lawyer didn’t reveal which guy she picked, of course, but she did confirm to reporters that she’s engaged to someone she described as “If I had a list, he would check everything off.””I am very much so in love and very much so engaged. “I want us to get the chance to get to know each other. […] Every morning I wake up and pinch myself.” She sounds happy! But we make sure to communicate with each other all the time, and that’s all you can really do.” What about wedding plans? Like us on Facebook. I’m used to that. Maybe it will be [quick]. And he picked her back. Maybe it will be a longer engagement like [‘Bachelorette’ couple] Shawn [Booth] and Kaitlyn [Bristowe]. And they got Neil Lane involved for an official engagement.”The Bachelor” stars don’t always confirm engagements before the season starts; sometimes they try to play it coy.
Then again, it’s very possible the other two couples are dealing with similar injuries and the cameras just weren’t there to capture them. Posted May 18, 2017 by Gina CarboneNormani Kordei is still considered the frontrunner to win “Dancing With the Stars” Season 24, but the Fifth Harmony singer faced a new ankle injury just days before the final dances.TMZ just posted video that shows Normani twisting her ankle during rehearsals with pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy. Hopefully DWTS isn’t just creating drama for effect … Tuesday is the big finale, with the remaining couples doing 24-hour fusion challenge dances for final points before the Mirror Ball champions are named.#TeamShadSquad are enjoying the little things in life. #DWTS #SemifinalsA post shared by Dancing with the Stars (@dancingabc) on May 15, 2017 at 6:32pm PDTWant more stuff like this? but this is a reality TV show, and they do love to build dramatic storylines.Normani and Val are the top-scoring couple of the Spring 2017 season, well ahead of Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater, and waaaay ahead of David Ross & Lindsay Arnold.Those final three couples will dance two routines on Monday, May 22 — a redemption dance redo of a previous style, and the all-important Freestyle routines, known as the make-or break dances for winners. Or maybe we’ll see those injuries later in video packages. 😉 It’s the last week of rehearsals until one of our Finalists claim the coveted Mirrorball! They take a 10-minute icing break to help her heal, and she’ll probably be fine to keep dancing, but the timing might make Team ValMani fans a little bit nervous.

“Sure,” Depp replied. Like us on Facebook. Ellen checked with the audience and a few other people hadn’t seen Baldwin’s Trump yet either.Ellen: “I can’t believe that there are people that have never seen Alec Baldwin do Trump. “Because then, basically, Alec’s done all the work, I can just copy him.” Watch the clip:”SNL” Season 42 ends this weekend, but there’s always next year. Baldwin does have other projects lined up, and he wasn’t planning to continue his Trump impression every week, so Depp may have a shot at understudy duty in Season 43.Want more stuff like this? Posted May 18, 2017 by Gina CarboneAlec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impression has taken over “Saturday Night Live,” but nobody puts Johnny Depp’s Trump in a corner.You may recall watching his impression of ’80s Trump in the Funny or Die movie “The Art of the Deal.” Depp was on “Ellen” last year to promote that movie, talking about his Trump transformation, and he returned today to promote the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie.Depp was visibly uncomfortable at the start of the talk (watch the clip below), but seemed to warm up after a while. That is shocking to me.”Johnny: “Well, I’ve seen Trump do Trump, which is shocking to me.”Ellen asked, if Baldwin ever stopped doing his impression on “SNL,” would Depp take over? But then he moved into his own impression, briefly, and shared a few thoughts about the POTUS.Johnny Depp: “I just love the fact that he’s unable — even more so than me — he’s unable to finish a, to form a sentence, actually formulate a sentence that becomes vocabulary that actually works together.”Ellen said Alec Baldwin does a great impression on “SNL,” but Johnny Depp said he hasn’t seen it yet. Ellen DeGeneres said he does a good Trump, and he wasn’t sure whether to take that as a compliment or not.
Williams plays his wife Charity; with Zac Efron as Barnum’s business partner, who falls in love with the trapeze artist played by Zendaya (who has the best pink hair).The story is set in the mid-1800s, but the songs sound, intentionally, like modern pop.”We were clear from the beginning that this wouldn’t feel like a period movie or a historical piece,” Jackman told EW. and maybe some “La La Land” level Oscar buzz?Want more stuff like this?

His new CBS pilot “Me, Myself, & I” was just picked up to series on CBS’s fall 2017-2018 schedule, and he also voices the title character in the new Syfy series “Happy!”So this Saturday’s May 20 show should include some kind of tribute to Moynihan, even if it’s just a goodbye at the end of the show.

And we’ve got an exclusive first-look at one of the featurettes, featuring some killer the behind-the-scenes footage.The primary focus of the featurette is the production of the movie at Shepperton Studios, the famous facility just outside of London, which, in recent years, has been host to everything from “Gravity” to “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (and everything in between). (It’s the No. The whole movie sparkled.But how did it all come together?Well, you’ll find out, thanks to a huge array of special features on the home video release of “Beauty and the Beast,” coming to Disney Movies Anywhere, Digital HD and Blu-ray on June 6th. 1 movie of the year domestically and has made over $1 billion worldwide, so far.) It was the perfect update of the animated classic, using current technology to tell the story in new and exciting ways and was cannily cast, with Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, and Luke Evans as Gaston leading an impressive ensemble that also included Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson, Kevin Kline, and Ian McKellan. “We only spent two days shooting outside of the studio, and that was in a nearby forest,” says Bill Condon, the director of “Beauty and the Beast.” Thompson, who plays Mrs. For “Beauty and the Beast,” they constructed the entirety of Belle’s village on the lot, along with key interiors and exteriors from other parts of the film.

Posted May 18, 2017 by Gina CarboneAfter a week of TV schedule announcements from other networks, The CW is here with its fall lineup, and you’ll notice a few changes.”Arrow” is moving from Wednesday to Thursday, and “Riverdale” is moving from Thursday to Wednesday, right before the new “Dynasty” “reimagining.” “Jane the Virgin” is moving to Fridays, where it will follow “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.”Here’s a statement from The CW President Mark Pedowitz on the new shows coming:”Next season we have four new scripted series, continuing our mission of adding more original programming to schedule all year long.

Tambor turned it into a joke and got them to put up a picture of Schiavelli, saying, “Look! “I came on to sell a book, not to be insulted.”It turns out, though, this isn’t the first time that someone has been convinced Tambor was the 1990 film’s subway ghost. The mistake came when Seacrest asked Tambor about his role in “Ghost,” forcing Tambor to break the news that not only was he not in the film, but also that Schiavelli is no longer alive.Luckily, the moment was more funny than awkward. Spitting image, right?”He then changed tack and started mock shaming Seacrest for the error.”What is wrong with you?” he said. He shared the story of a time a waiter in Rome started impersonating Schiavelli’s character, leaving Tambor totally confused about what was going on.Watch the hilarious exchange below. Posted May 17, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongEven the best of us make mistakes, and professional though he is, Ryan Seacrest is only human.The new “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan” co-host made a funny gaffe Wednesday when he confused “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor with fellow actor Vincent Shiavelli.
