Posted February 3, 2017 by Kelly WooMichael Bay is putting away his giant robots. He has said this before, but now he really means it. “I see the 120 million fans around the world who see these movies, the huge theme park lines to the ride and the amazing Make- A-Wish kids who visit my sets, and it somehow keeps drawing me back. But, this time might really be it. The director announced via a letter on his website that “Transformers: The Last Knight” will be his last movie in the franchise. These scribes will create interlinking movies that expand the “Transformers” universe.As for Bay, well, he’ll still be Bay. With every ‘Transformers’ film, I’ve said it would be my last,” he wrote. Still, he noted that the “Transformers” franchise will be taken over by a writers room. So I’m blowing this one out.”Bay can’t help himself and leaves himself a way back in (“might really be it”). Probably.”It’s bittersweet for me. He’ll just take his love of explosions, car chases, and fireballs to new stories.”The Last Knight” opens in theaters June 23. This film was especially fun to shoot. I love doing these movies.
Rick travels to the Kingdom, where Morgan currently resides, to ask King Ezekiel to “join us in fighting the Saviours, fighting for freedom, for all of us.” Can these ragtag rebels team up to defeat the dark side?”The Walking Dead” season 7B premieres Sunday, Feb. Posted February 3, 2017 by Kelly WooResistance is not futile on “The Walking Dead.” When the zombie drama returns for the second half of season 7 next week, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the denizens of Alexandria are determined to fight back against Negan and the Saviours. Like us on Facebook. 12.Want more stuff like this? We’re together again,” Lincoln notes in this extended promo (via IGN). “At least, it’s the beginning of the resistance.”But they can’t do it alone. “We’re rebuilding. They don’t have any guns and they’ve lost key fighters, so they will need to reach out to other communities.
At this point, it’s unclear if the characters are connected, though we have a hunch that it’s a strong possibility; you don’t stunt cast two recognizable television stars without any plan to bring them together, after all.No word yet on when Sorbo and Hatcher will make their first appearance on the program. Posted February 3, 2017 by Katie RobertsOnly days after another fellow ’90s TV star joined the cast of CW series “Supergirl,” former “Hercules” star Kevin Sorbo has also been confirmed as a new addition to the ensemble.In a statement, “Supergirl” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed that Sorbo would be the next big name to appear on the show.”Since his days as Hercules, Kevin Sorbo has brought such a strong presence to the screen and we couldn’t be more excited to have him join us on ‘Supergirl,'” Kreisberg’s statement said.According to TVLine, Sorbo will be playing a villain during the latter half of the show’s current second season, though no additional details were provided about the character. “Supergirl” airs on Mondays on The CW.[via: TVLine] That’s eerily similar to the announcement earlier this week that confirmed that Teri Hatcher (of ’90s super-series “Lois & Clark” fame) would also be joining the cast, playing yet another mysterious villain who was set to become the season’s Big Bad.
Some of the burns were particularly funny — and oddly specific. Watt reportedly “looks like a fat Macklemore,” while Von Miller allegedly resembles “an 80-year-old man from 1974,” whatever that means.One tweet snarked about Maurice Jones Drew’s weight — while the former player was holding a plate of snacks. After all, it’s probably pretty hard to care what some random Twitter user thinks about you when you’re a famous athlete making millions of dollars per year. Posted February 3, 2017 by Katie RobertsJimmy Kimmel has rolled out the latest version of his perennially popular — and consistently hilarious — Mean Tweets series, this time featuring a bunch of NFL stars reading a bunch of terrible Twitter comments about themselves.The segment, timed to this weekend’s Super Bowl LI matchup, features superstar football players like Odell Beckham Jr., J.J. (But that shouldn’t stop couch surfers from trying — we’d to see Mean Tweets continue forever.) Watt, and Russell Wilson each taking themselves down a peg, with predictably humorous results. (We’re going to assume the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” crew may have had something to do with that coincidence.) And of course, another user got in a good dig about Rob Gronkowski’s intelligence (or lack thereof).Some athletes seem to handle the criticisms better than others (one tweeter wrote that “Tony Romo sits down to pee”; “Well, what other way is there to pee?” Romo responded), but it seemed that mostly everyone took the comments in stride.
The backing orchestration sounds a bit too much like elevator music for our taste (why is it so tinny?), but that’s not the singers’ fault.Of course, the real test of the remake’s musical mettle will come when Emma Thompson — who’s playing Mrs. We’re looking forward to seeing the new cast try, though.”Beauty and the Beast” is due in theaters on March 17. Potts Angela Lansbury’s take on the tune is a classic (and she recently proved she can still perform it beautifully), so it will certainly be hard to top. Posted February 3, 2017 by Katie RobertsIt’s a tale as old as time: When you want to promote the love ballad from your upcoming film, you bring in two hot artists for an epic duet. Original Mrs. Potts this time around — sings the song over the big dance sequence between Belle (Emma Watson) and the Beast (Dan Stevens) in the flick. And so, Disney is once again calling on some big names for its live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast,” recruiting Ariana Grande and John Legend for the gig this time around.While we heard snippets of Grande and Legend singing the film’s famous titular theme song in the last full-length trailer for the flick, there’s now a full version of the audio online, and the track does not disappoint. Sure, it’s not exactly as epic as the original duet, sung by Celine Dion (who’s also contributing a new song to the remake’s soundtrack) and Peabo Bryson for the 1991 animated classic; but then again, what else could possibly compete?This version is a serviceable cover, however, and Grande and Legend’s voices complement each other quite nicely.
Posted February 3, 2017 by Katie Roberts”The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon has continued his annual tradition of having a pack of adorable puppies pick the Super Bowl champions, with another edition of Puppy Predictors taking place on Thursday night’s program. But we can all agree that that matchup won’t be nearly as adorable as this one. And Falcons fans should be feeling pretty good about that prediction, since last year, the Puppy Predictors ended up selecting the correct Super Bowl champs, the Denver Broncos.Super Bowl LI is set for Sunday, February 5. And while the pups clearly had a favorite, really, we’re all winners when watching ridiculously cute canines prance around.In the bit, Fallon explained that the dogs would be declaring a winner in Sunday’s Super Bowl LI matchup between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. The deciding factor: Which of two bowls of kibble — one inscribed with the Patriots’ name, the other with the Falcons’ — attracted more of the nine yellow labrador puppies present.As Fallon released the hounds (one of them named Gary Frick Jr., in a nod to the host’s own yellow lab), they quickly crowded around the Falcons’ bowl, thus naming them the puppies’ official pick to win it all on Sunday.

And based on previous hints the actress has dropped throughout production of these new episodes, there will be lots of dragon action waiting for audiences when season seven debuts.And speaking of season seven, Clarke also used the post to make yet another hyperbolic declaration about the epic nature of the new installments, writing, “I BELIEVE THIS ONES [sic] GONNA BE A MIND BLOWER.”We’re ready to be amazed.

We’ll have to wait and see what ASP and Netflix decide to do.[via: Variety] Posted February 3, 2017 by Katie RobertsAfter that major cliffhanger of an ending, “Gilmore Girls” fans are still dying to know whether or not Netflix will be ordering up more installments of revival series “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” And while there’s still no official word from the cast, creators, or streaming service about the likelihood of that possibility, that hasn’t stopped one star from declaring himself game for returning to Stars Hollow one more time.In an interview with Variety revolving around his new hit series “This Is Us,” actor Milo Ventimiglia (who “Gilmore” fans know well as Rory’s former bad boy boyfriend-turned-good guy Jess) also spent some time talking about the show that made him famous. “They are the reason why I show up. Amy created Jess, and I loved speaking her words. But I do kind of feel like audiences shouldn’t get so greedy. It would almost be a shame to mess with that.Then again, we wouldn’t say no to more “Gilmore,” either. When asked if he’d be willing to sign on for additional “Gilmore” episodes sometime down the road, Ventimiglia answered with an unequivocal yes — though fans shouldn’t exactly get their hopes up, either.”If [creators] Dan Palladino or Amy Sherman-Palladino ever called me, of course,” the actor said of a potential “Gilmore” return. They were given a last serving of pie — why don’t we just leave it at that?”Ventimiglia makes a good point, since the whole purpose of the revival was for Sherman-Palladino to wrap up “Gilmore Girls” the way she always intended, including using those famed “final four words.” And despite the open-ended nature of “A Year in the Life”‘s last scene, the series really did have a finality to it, wrapping up certain characters’ story arcs very neatly.
“If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em … Instead, “Shrek” came from DreamWorks Animation and parodied “all of the overused Disney tropes” by fully embracing them.

This song seeks to bring about certain conversations: to talk about what is really happening in our society.” Brazen, bold, and defiant even, Blood Money hits deep and achieves just that. From the start, Protoje’s ethos has always been one of unforgiving honesty and transparency that has helped establish his music with every listener, new and old. Protoje’s Blood Money Begs No Pardons
by Shana-Kay Hart
Every now and then, there comes a song that helps make sense of the world around us. The tune comes almost a year after the release of his Royalty Free project and the artist hints that more is to be expected. After being away from Jamaica for some time, the singer & songwriter came back with an adjusted understanding of the state of the country and uses this song as a way to address particular matters. SHARE / Feb 2, 2017 05:40 pm
As one of the world’s modern-day “soothsayer” or teller of truth, Protoje’s newest song Blood Money shines a glaring and inescapable light on masked issues plaguing Jamaica. A clear and clever work of social commentary himself, Protoje reminds us of the inherent need to be heard and speak out on injustices especially in today’s society. “This is unfair, hypocritical, and widely inaccurate. Even if just for a minute, the song transports its listeners into the depths of an artiste’s mind and soul, giving a voice to far too frequently unspoken, muffled or suppressed thoughts and beliefs. As expected, he begs for no pardons in doing so.With Blood Money, Protoje does what he is best at: mixing melodies and meaningful messages aimed at unearthing the truth. “The most I can say is Blood Money” needs a home, it will be lonely out there all by itself.”
Listen to Blood Money below: “People who have less, are made to seem like the problem in society,” he says.
Billy Crystal from Funny Or Die However, Mitch has been going off his loop, and Stubbs is determined to find out why.It’s fun to see Mitch and Phil’s dynamic in a new context. The security head finds their bickering hard to take and decides “their core friendship parameters have to be realigned.”See how the duo fares in the hilarious video below.City Slickers in Westworld feat. As hosts, Mitch feels he has license to shoot his friend all the time, no matter what adjustments Stubbs makes. With some background from Stubbs, we learn that Mitch (Crystal) and Phil (Stern) are actually hosts. Their narrative — “dissasisfied city slicker rides out West with his friends to herd cattle and try to find his smile again” — was once one of the best-selling ones, in fact. Posted February 2, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio Long”City Slickers” and “Westworld” aren’t an obvious pairing, but they go surprisingly well together.A new Funny or Die video takes the stars of the classic ’90s western comedy, Billy Crystal and Daniel Stern, and has them reprise their roles alongside “Westworld” stars Luke Hemsworth (Stubbs) and Ptolemy Slocum (Sylvester).
2″ is here, featuring closer looks at familiar heroes like Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and Gamora (Zoe Saldana), as well as new characters like Mantis (Pom Klementieff).The images, debuted by USA Today, also include some behind the scenes details about our rag-tag group of Guardians, including outlining the importance of the search for Peter’s dad (played by Kurt Russell) in the flick. He’s pictured among this new crop of photos alongside Rocket, and we imagine the former Ravager and the acerbic raccoon will almost certainly butt heads as they attempt to work together.Check out some of the images above, and the rest over at USA Today. USA Today also notes that the relationship between Rocket and Groot has changed quite a bit now that the latter is a kid again (and freaking adorable, we must say).Other hints promise that Drax takes an immediate liking to new crew member Mantis (USA Today says she turns him into “a big ol’ softie”). “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hits theaters on May 5.

Then he did a film called “Hush” for Netflix that I guess Stephen King saw, loved, and Tweeted about. She said, “Even when you go up on the satellite, I was gone for a week, and I couldn’t remember — you lose time in space to such an extent, so quickly within a matter of days, that looking down, I was like, which way is Earth? So I find it fascinating, but not personally something I would want to do.Did you learn anything where you were, like, “Astronauts have to do THIS?” Was there any research aspect that surprised you?One thing that I found out that was really fascinating to me, when I was speaking to this female astronaut — she was really interesting, and I was asking her about it being predominantly men. Also, because just physically, I’m in handcuffs for half of it. We had 23 days, I think, to shoot the movie. I so appreciate that. How soon would you lose memory of things? So your body is going through this trauma over and over and over again, and that one did. I’ve always been so impressed and fascinated by people who would choose to do that on our behalf. I think it gives the movie this sense of urgency as well.Like Hitchcock — the lean and mean way he shot “Psycho.”Exactly. Where are my kids? But I never have had an inkling to want to do it, and I don’t even think playing this character made me feel differently, but I really love seeing the world through her eyes.I think in this particular case, and the majesty of it I guess was something. It’s true. None of that really phased her. That one did really stick.”Gerald’s Game” sounds like it could be a very intense, something you’d have to shake off before you go home.That was incredibly intense. It’s such a noble profession. Posted February 2, 2017 by Scott HuverExactly when Carla Gugino sleeps, we have no idea.A professional actress since childhood, Gugino has long been vying for the title of the hardest working actor in Hollywood, or at least one of the most employed. It was a physically and emotionally extremely difficult experience, but also in a profound way and a way that appropriate for the material. I thought “Roadies,” which got some rough reviews, was well worth the trip by the end.Thank you. I think it was because I did it for so long. I think in this particular case it did. That’s not true: “Webster” was my very first job. I really do love it. I have bruises all over my back from the headboard of the bed. So she said, “If you were really on Mars for this period of time, it would be really foreign coming back,” and I just thought that was really interesting.Has it ever happened to you as an actor? So I felt like, “Boy, we have to have somebody who really has that delicate touch and understanding of the material, and of the genre.” So when I actually spoke to Mike, I really felt like ‘This is the guy. “The Wonder Years,” “Doogie Howser, M.D.,” and “ALF.” You were on “ALF!” I know — “ALF” was my very first job! So I will hopefully be able to continue doing that. Obviously, the reason you exercise up there is to keep your muscles and everything like that. And what time is it for them?”She said it almost seems like a fake life you’re thinking about. But yes, there was one time that it was more than I have ever experienced. And it’s a real Greek tragedy, in the sense that she murders her child. So those were also kind of nice ways to dip my toe into the water.I love that you still come back to TV. Then, I was able to shed that pretty quickly, but I think part of that was also because we shot in sequence for the most part, and that was really helpful.There were some things we had to shoot out of sequence, but really a large portion of it we shot in sequence, so I was able to have that kind of natural process, I guess. But no, that was one of the most challenging — in all the right ways — roles that I’ve ever played.Was it tough material for you to sit with?It was very tough material. She said, “I was in science class from when I was a little kid with all boys. This is the guy to do it, and he feels so passionately about it.” I think it’s going to be really good. Would it be completely foreign to me? I’m really excited about it.And I play two versions of myself of this character, and that was also really bizarre and surreal, especially with how quick we were shooting it. It was amazing because those were the big shows at that time. And they connected through that experience.And Mike said, “I’ve been wanting to make ‘Gerald’s Game’ for this period of time, but it’s always been considered unfilmable because it is such a tricky story.” And Stephen King said, “If you give me a script, if you give me something that could work, I’d love for you to do it.” So Mike wrote this script.It’s so interesting because this obviously is a thriller with some horror elements, but then also is dealing with child abuse, and that kind of childhood trauma. The people who love “Roadies” really love “Roadies.” I don’t know quite why people are so harsh on Cameron [Crowe], because he’s so extraordinary, and he has this amazing innocent heart, and I almost feel like that’s part of what people go for or something, because we’re in a time that’s a bit more jaded, or I don’t know, self-referential or something, kind of meta. Would it be like riding a bike? And I loved working with Bruce Greenwood. I think also, with a play, it’s eight shows a week, so it’s this strange kind of repeat, and your body doesn’t really realize that it’s false. [filmmaker] Mike Flanagan had been wanting to make that movie since he was 19. So when I was in it, I was in it. And where on Earth is my family? What was it like to drop in on some of those now-classic sitcoms? Were you interested in space exploration?Carla Gugino: Not a big space nerd. Gary Oldman’s character in this, too, I find to be influenced obviously by like Elon Musk, Richard Branson, those kind of guys, who have that really forward-thinking attitude and the wherewithal to be able to actually execute it. Everybody that I worked with on it, I felt so blessed to be doing that with them.So it was all worth it, but I agree with you that if that had been a four-month shoot, that would have been a different thing, and a different thing for the movie. So for me, it’s about how all three mediums teach you different things, are different experiences, and it’s always about the role and the people. Her long list of film credits include high-profile movies such as “Spy Kids,” “Sin City,” “Watchmen,” “Night at the Museum,” and “San Andreas,” while her TV resume has recently been filled with distinctive series like “Entourage,” “Californication,” “Wayward Pines,” and “Roadies.”Gugino’s back on the big screen in the near-future fusion of sci-fi and YA, “The Space Between Us,” playing a maternal-minded astronaut trying to ensure the safety of a teenager born and raised on Mars (Asa Butterfield) as he makes his way to Earth to meet the girl (Britt Robertson) he’s fallen for from very afar. So as a young actress, I had one line on “Who’s the Boss?” I had a bigger role on “The Wonder Years.” “Doogie Howser” — they were exciting to get.It was funny because I had considered, the reason that I wanted to act was because of Meryl Streep in “Silkwood” and “Sophie’s Choice.” I had seen them both in the same year, and I was so blown away by these two completely different women, and women who I felt that I therefore somehow understood, even though as a 12-year-old, I had had no experiences like either of these women. And it really made me think, “Oh my gosh, acting can teach you empathy,” and I want to get inside people that are different than me and see life through their eyes.So those sitcoms weren’t the kind of work I thought I would be doing, but I also was a working actor who was getting jobs. Or “Rope.” Yeah.I was looking at some of your old credits from when you first started out as a child actor. I remember when I did “Spin City,” I went from “Spin City” to doing “Snake Eyes” with Brian De Palma and Nicolas Cage, and I do the theater. Do you know the story? And, tonally, it’s really challenging. But I love that show, and I love doing that show.And I’ve always felt … It’s a very, very intense role.That was one that I have to say, because I’m not a Method actor, really stuck with me for a good period of time after in a very intense and slightly concerning way, where I really thought, “God, will I be able to get out of this?”And I didn’t, for a little while, do a play of that nature. You know what was interesting about that is that I went in so full force, and we shot six-day weeks in Alabama. Like you really lose any kind of just those tentpole things, markers of where you are, and who you are, and what your life is made up of. Have you stepped into a world so deeply that going back to your own world felt a little strange?There’s always a little transitional period into and out of projects in that way. And they were all very helpful to me because the thing is the only way to learn anything is to actually start doing it. Yeah. And she’s already completed the much-anticipated Netflix film adaptation of novelist Stephen King’s harrowing, S&M-tinged psychological thriller “Gerald’s Game,” a role she admits sorely tested her own psyche and physique.And, as she chatted with Moviefone about her always-in-motion career, Gugino also took a rare look back at some of her earliest TV acting roles, which found her cast opposite the likes of Tony Danza, Neil Patrick Harris, Fred Savage, and ALF.Moviefone: How much of a space nerd were you before taking on this movie? I did a Eugene O’Neill play called “Desire Under the Elms,” and I started it in Chicago, did it with Pablo Schreiber and Brian Dennehy, and then we moved it to Broadway. “ALF” was my second job. 24, maybe.I bet that helps.Yeah. It was always the case for me.”But what is really interesting, because I was really intrigued about like, if I had lived on Mars for this period of time, what would it be like coming back to Earth?
Filming is currently taking place in Bulgaria, and will also include shoots in England, Australia, and other nations, which will all be beset by the titular shark-infested storm system.Back to save the day yet again will be Fin and April, with Ian Ziering and Tara Reid reprising their roles. And this time, the absurd weather pattern is going global.Production has already begun on the sequel, which will be set in a bunch of different countries around the globe. Posted February 2, 2017 by Katie RobertsThose pesky sharknadoes are at it again, with Syfy gearing up for a fifth installment in its schlocky, silly “Sharknado” series. Also returning for more will be Cassie Scerbo, who played bartender Nova in the original “Sharkado” back in 2013, and reprised her role in “Sharknado 3” in 2015.There’s no title yet (originally, the film was set to be called “Sharknado 5… Earth 0,” but right now producers are just going with “Sharknado 5”), though it will certainly be hard to top the name of last year’s offering, “Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens.” If producers are aiming to ape other offerings in the “Star Wars” universe, we’d suggest mimicking the recently revealed title of “Episode VIII” and going with “Sharknado 5: The Last Sharknado.” The world could probably use a break from sharks raining down from the sky.[via: Entertainment Weekly]
That’s gotta be worth more than a sportscar, right? Paul, by virtue of being the only actual contestant in the studio, easily makes it up onto the stage, where Corden invites him to spin the wheel to make it into the Showcase.The pair get a begrudging assist from “Price” host Drew Carey, who seems none too pleased that the duo has invaded the set, but decides to run the Showdown anyway. Posted February 2, 2017 by Katie RobertsIt’s always a bummer when a “Price Is Right” contestant loses the Showcase Showdown with an over-bid, and that was especially true for actor Aaron Paul when he appeared on the game show way back in 2000. Naturally, the actor thought it was time for some redemption.In a bit for “The Late Late Show,” Paul and host James Corden broke into the “Price Is Right” studios to try to get Paul a re-do, recreating his previous appearance down to Paul’s excited fist pumps, screams, and air kicks as he is called down to contestants’ row. Paul, in his pre-“Breaking Bad” fame days, was just a babyfaced kid when he over-bid his sportscar showcase by a measly $132. We won’t spoil exactly what happens for you, but it involves the same car — and we mean the exact same car — that Paul over-bid on the first time around, and some creative calculations on Corden’s part.At least Paul can take solace in the fact that he’s a famous, award-winning actor.
It’s clear that fans are eager to see the film’s stars, including Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, take on the iconic “tale as old as time.”Expect crowded theaters when “Beauty and the Beast” opens on March 17.[via: Deadline] Posted February 2, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongWith all the hype surrounding Disney’s live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast,” it should come as no surprise that the film’s advance ticket sales are blowing up.Tickets only went on sale on Monday, Jan. Fandango described its early pre-sales as “unstoppable” and compared them to the numbers the online ticket-seller usually see for superhero flicks, Deadline reports. 30, but Fandango reports they’re on pace to surpass the pre-sales of “Finding Dory.” That would be quite a feat. The “Finding Nemo” sequel opened to $135 million, according to Box Office Mojo, making it the highest-grossing North American debut of all time for an animated film.”Beauty and the Beast” might not qualify in the same category as “Finding Dory,” but the sales are impressive nonetheless.
