Posted June 20, 2017 by Gina Carbone”Supernatural” is trying again for a spinoff, and this one sounds perfect.According to Deadline, “Supernatural” Season 13 will air a backdoor pilot for The CW’s new series, called “Wayward Sisters,” following “Supernatural” Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) and a group of troubled young women, all orphaned by supernatural tragedy. Like us on Facebook. Named in part after the title of the Kansas song that opens every Supernatural finale, Carry On Wayward Son, the Wayward Daughters spinoff idea was the result of a grassroots fan effort that started two years ago, soon after Bloodlines, the first proposed Supernatural spinoff, did not go forward.”Yes, and that may be the difference. “Under Mills’ training and protection, the women will emerge as a supreme monster-fighting force. This is seen as a response to fans calling for a spinoff around actual core characters.So far, commenting fans — at TVLine, especially — seem to be very supportive of this spinoff idea.
Posted June 20, 2017 by Scott HuverAlison Brie may have only been alive for a portion of the 1980s, but she’s having a totally awesome time revisiting the era — even when she’s pinned to a wrestling mat.Brie, who came on the scene with a powerful one-two punch with her starring role on the cult-favorite sitcom “Community” and recurring appearances on the modern TV classic “Mad Men,” returns to television as the central contender in Netflix’s “GLOW,” which turns back the clock to the glory days of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, the Reagan Era’s female professional wrestling organization.Playing Ruth, a down-and-out aspiring actress whose desperate search for gainful employment leads her try her hand at suplexes and piledrivers and in the process finds herself on a road to an unexpected sort of stardom, Brie tells Moviefone she reveled in everything the role had to offer, from the physical challenges to the all-too-relatable auditioning process to those revealing high-cut leotards.Moviefone: You were just a baby in the ’80s! It’s all I wanted, once I heard about it. I definitely was walking a little taller throughout the whole shoot.If you were to actually wrestle, what was the main move that you mastered?The suplex is my favorite move, and I think I have it down, on either side. I really like the super high cut leotards, although, it makes for a bikini line challenge, I think for all the women on the show. It was some major nostalgia because my mom used to get constant perms. I think she has a lot of potential, but she needs to be reeled in some of the time — much like myself, I would say.Part of her journey, I imagine, was pretty easy for you to relate to. Tell me about connecting with her as far as the obstacles that she faced trying to follow her dreams.Oh, absolutely. I realized that I was capable of so much more than I ever would have imagined. Although, I guess you could argue that things like that are still a problem in our country today. I had a perm for this show, and the smell of the chemicals that they put in your hair to make a perm really took me back. I lived in my mother’s house in South Pasadena until we were going into our third season of “Community,” if that tells you anything about my confidence in my career. I fought for it tooth and nail. That was a great feeling. I had been really looking for a challenge, and I think really wanted to, similarly to Ruth, wanted to prove that I was capable of doing some different types of things. Did you have to decide that?I think that she is a good actress, but sometimes she’s so overzealous about it, that she gets in her own way. A lot of perms in our household!As you dove deep into the era, what blew you away — in a good way — about some of the styles and the pop cultural artifacts? I love everything about ’80s fashion. I really wanted to make sure I could support myself before I moved out of my mother’s house.Physically and maybe even mentally, how did playing this part change you?Definitely mentally. Doing our month-long wrestling training prior to shooting, as well as doing some really heavy lifting with my personal trainer, Jason Walsh, I really wanted to change my body, and build my muscles, and build strength, and then use it in the ring.As we were learning to do these moves, it’s like you’re overcoming your fears on a minute-by-minute basis, when you’re in the ring. The element of wrestling in this show was something that really turned me on. We see high-waisted jeans coming back in fashion now.But the fact that, like in even the ’50s and ’60s, we had those shapes, those hourglass shapes for women’s figures, that even women that had boobs and butts and things, could wear clothes in a cool way, and have that cinch at the waist, things that are more flattering, versus those really boxy shapes that we see in fashion now. Nothing sexy about those jeans. However, in the wrestling world in particular, when you really look back at the characters from the ’80s, the really aggressive patriotism is interesting.After watching the first few episodes, It’s not entirely obvious whether Ruth was actually potentially a good actress or not. In my auditioning process for the show, I’ve never felt more like Ruth either.I imagine you — like every actor in Hollywood — have gone through a lot of bizarre auditions, a lot of brusque auditions and a lot of brutal auditions. And what made you think, “This was actually a thing”?The clothes I actually really liked! That was a real tricky thing.Probably the racism is one of the more shocking things that I had kind of forgotten about the ’80s. But I actually really like the shapes of women’s clothes at the time. Have you had those experiences yourself?I’m lucky in that I’m from Los Angeles, so my family lives here. That’s my favorite move. I’ve never done a more empowering job, and I think that the physical side had a lot to do with it. Then I had to do it again in the movie.How about those moments between gigs, like Ruth faces, when you’re trying to make progress, and you’ve got to do things like call home for that extra bill money or take a gig that you might think was beneath you in another circumstance. I do, and I’m sure it’s a blend of actual memories, and then just like things I’ve seen in photographs, that sort of your mind tricks you into thinking, “I remember being there for that.”Definitely, I remember perms! I think overcoming those fears so constantly made us all feel like badasses. More like a second-by-second basis, as you’re sort of having to make a choice and then commit to a move in a really major way. Do you have a favorite “I can’t believe that somebody actually did or said this to me during an audition” story?I’ve never really been casting-couched or anything like that. As an actress, I could relate immediately and immensely to the challenges that Ruth is facing trying to get work, trying to find roles that she feels are worthy of her. I feel like I can suplex somebody, and I’m pretty good at getting suplexed. Trying to find interesting and different roles to play is still a challenge for women — and men, but women I think a little more, acting today.When this role came along in this show, I think that’s one of the things that I loved most about it: just the sheer volume of unique and interesting female characters was enough to make me really excited, and Ruth herself is such a complex and interesting character that I really fought for this role. I can remember an early audition for a movie that I booked called “Born,” a B horror movie, would be the best way to describe it, in which, in the audition I was playing a young woman in a fight with the demon fetus inside her body that’s possessing her, and that was a pretty wild audition. So rather than calling home for money, I just lived at home for a long time. It’s a crowd-pleaser.Did you have to work up the nerve to take on this part because it was going to be so challenging on a lot of levels?Not at al! Marc Maron has been very outspoken about his true hatred for the jeans that Ruth wears on the show. Do you have any hazy real-life memories of that period of time?Alison Brie: I do!

Vanity Fair weighs in with a source that insists that Cavill’s $14 million “certainly isn’t for one picture. Posted June 20, 2017 by Sharon Knolle”Wonder Woman” is slaying at the box office, but Gal Gadot’s salary apparently has a long way to go to match what Henry Cavill was paid for “Man of Steel.”Cosmpolitan notes that Gal Gadot was paid just $300,000 for “Wonder Woman,” while Henry Cavill’s first outing in 2011’s “Man of Steel” earned him a cool $14 million (according to Forbes.)That means (if everyone is crunching the numbers correctly) Cavill was paid 46 times what Gadot was. And since the two were both “unknowns” at the time of their casting, there really seems to be only one way to interpret that huge pay gap.But… Let’s hope those big bonuses are happening.And since “Wonder Woman 2” apparently isn’t part of her original contract, Gadot deserves a massive raise for the next one.For what it’s worth, $300,000 is what Chris Evans was paid for his first go-round as Steve Rogers in Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” per CBR. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League.” With the huge success of “Wonder Woman,” that figure now seems criminally low. That’s insane.” The source tells VF that “if she signed a deal similar to Cavill’s, the ‘Wonder Woman’ bonus checks will soon be rolling in — and the sequels could be even more lucrative.”Another VF source claims, “If you do an apples to apples comparison, she was paid at least as much as he was.”The $300,000-per-movie figure was first reported by Variety in 2014 when Gadot signed a three-picture deal to appear in “Batman v.

Posted June 20, 2017 by Kelly WooThe investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct on the set of “Bachelor in Paradise” has concluded that no such misconduct took place.Production on the ABC dating show shut down after a producer raised concerns about an encounter between contestants Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson. may not air the actual incident between Olympios and Jackson, but will it even acknowledge the ensuing drama?

He was murdered … But he struggles with adjusting to civilian life: he has to reacquaint himself with his wife and kids, deal with post-traumatic stress disorder, and help his soldier buddies battle demons of their own.Based on the non-fiction book by David Finkel, “Thank You For Your Service” is the directorial debut of Jason Hall, who earned an Oscar nomination for his “American Sniper” screenplay.The two movies explores similar themes, but as Hall told USA Today, “Coming home isn’t just about the boots on the soil: Coming home is a process of returning to self.

Posted June 20, 2017 by Sharon KnolleBefore filming wrapped on “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” Colin Trevorrow says he asked Rian Johnson to film a scene that will be used in “Star Wars: Episode IX.”
Talking to MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, Trevorrow explained that he asked Johnson to shoot “this one extra thing while you’re in this place on this day,” without elaborating on what that “extra thing” or “this place” was.Before you interpret this as Johnson taking over for Trevorrow (whom folks have been speculating might lose his “Star Wars” gig because of those terrible, terrible reviews for “The Book of Henry”), filming on “The Last Jedi” wrapped in July 2016. There’s such a genuine want to get this right from everybody, and I think that one of the misconceptions is that there’s some kind of great corporate overlord that is dictating this story to everybody… The as-yet untitled “Episode IX” is scheduled to start shooting next month, with a release date of May 24, 2019.[Via Epicstream] Trevorrow told MTV that the communication between directors is “part of the collaborative process that exists … The reality of it is that it’s a small group of people… and none of them are corporate, all of them are creatives and all of them are genuinely, very sincerely, wanting to do the work of their lives in order to realize this.”
This could potentially mean an extra scene of Carrie Fisher, who passed away in December 2016, but that’s probably wishful thinking, since Kathleen Kennedy announced that “Last Jedi” would be the the last film we’ll see Leia in.
Leah Block, who competed for Ben Higgins last year and then returned for Season 3 of “Bachelor in Paradise,” tweeted that this season of “The Bachelorette” (with the series first-ever black Bachelorette) was more like the VH1 series “Love & Hip Hop.”Bachelor Nation didn’t take kindly to that and Lindsay herself responded by asking if Block was “watching with Lee,” referring to one of her suitors, Lee Garrett, who’s tweeted far more offensive comments, including comparing the NAACP to the KKK.Block immediately deleted the tweet, then said that people had taken it “WAY out of context,” that the comment was actually her roommate’s, and that “[neither] my roommate nor I am racist.” Finally, she deleted her entire account.Of course, the screenshots of her tweet live on.Last week, Block weighed in on the “Bachelor in Paradise” scandal, in which she called the producers and the show “trashy.”[Via E!Online] Posted June 20, 2017 by Sharon KnolleAn ex-contestant from “The Bachelor” deleted her Twitter account after Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay called out her offensive tweet during last night’s episode.
Even with the smacks, though, this may be the least violent three-and-a-half-minutes of “Game of Thrones” we’ve ever seen.Watch the video below.”Game of Thrones” Season 7 is set to premiere July 16 on HBO.[h/t: Time] Posted June 19, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongThere’s one thing every “Game of Thrones” character wants but can’t necessarily pull off: survival.With that being an ongoing challenge for the fictional people of the hit HBO drama, the creative mind behind the YouTube account Sung By Movies has created a fan video showing the cast performing Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.” The video takes clips from the show and compiles them to make the characters sing the 1978 hit song’s catchy lyrics.Their musical stylings don’t exactly live up to Gaynor’s, but it is entertaining to watch given how difficult surviving actually is on “Game of Thrones.” Plus, there are comical interludes in the video, including montages of characters dancing and also slapping one another around to the beat.
There have now been two failed attempts to give fans another season, with Fox previously exploring the idea, only to abandon it shortly thereafter. The problem seems to have come down to money, as earlier reports indicated it likely would. Apparently, the entire cast and crew would have had to agree to smaller paychecks with what the network was looking to spend.Sadly, the future of the show looks bleaker than ever. “Last Man Standing” die-hards should be prepared for the possibility that ABC’s decision not to renew the show back in May effectively killed it.Fans, you have our condolences.[via: Deadline] Posted June 19, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio Long”Last Man Standing” just can’t catch a break.After talk of CMT possibly saving the former ABC series offered a glimmer of hope last week, Deadline now reports that the network is no longer considering picking up the show.

“Cars 3” returns the franchise to an American setting. Given what an afterthought the domestic market has seemed to be all year, with movies like “The Mummy” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” becoming blockbusters overseas while stumbling at home, it’s refreshing to see a weekend of movies that, if not clearly aimed at the home crowd, at least took American viewers into account. True, it’s not just girls and women who are responsible for the remarkable run so far of “Wonder Woman,” but it’s clear that the movie speaks to them in ways that few other recent films have. Despite its metric-system title, “47 Meters Down” is still about American tourists. After all, Tupac was immensely popular among listeners and movie audiences of all colors, so it shouldn’t have been a shock that his biopic would be as well.Americans. Still, reviews, word-of-mouth, and modest star power didn’t hinder “47 Meters Down.” More likely, “Rough Night”‘s biggest problem was timing; as its target audience was all buying tickets for “Wonder Woman, “47 Meters Down,” and even “Cars 3.” Yep, the usually testosterone-heavy series has a girl-power message this time, one that may have helped drive women and girls toward making up 49 percent of the movie’s audience.African-Americans. The bachelorette-night-gone-horribly-wrong comedy had a lot of other problems — neither critics nor audiences liked the premise; Johansson isn’t much of a box office draw outside her Marvel movies; and raunchy R-rated comedies haven’t done well lately. After all, the movie had a troubled production history, it had no star power, and it got slammed by both critics and Jada Pinkett Smith, who was a lifelong friend of Tupac’s. (Maybe the fourth-biggest, once final numbers come in on Monday; it’s just a hair behind the weekends marked by the debuts of “Logan” and “The LEGO Batman Movie.”) It’s weird to think of Americans as a whole being an underserved demographic, but that’s how it’s been. Which could explain why “Rough Night,” which had been widely expected to crack the top 5 and $20 million, did neither. Meanwhile, Disney should consider itself fortunate that it released the movie in mid-June; a couple weeks later, and “Cars 3” would have been run over by “Despicable Me 3.”Women. Early tracking suggested “All Eyez on Me” would earn just $15 to $22 million. But women do make up the core of the horror audience, they did help make a hit of the similar “The Shallows” last year, and they like Mandy Moore, at least when she’s starring on TV’s “This Is Us.” Scary trailers and posters helped overcome weak reviews and word-of-mouth, but the movie’s strongest selling point may have been the months-long absence from the multiplex of other horror movies with strong appeal to genre’s female fanbase.Indeed, for once, this weekend may have seen women over-served at the multiplex. As a corrective, this weekend’s films may not have been your idea of cheeseburgers and apple pie, but they were to a lot of American moviegoers who might otherwise have stayed home. The “Cars” franchise is the Pixar series that has the least to offer adults and is the most geared toward selling toys (more than $10 billion in merchandise over the past decade). “Eyez” got made despite Hollywood conventional wisdom that African-American-cast movies don’t do well abroad. So it’s no surprise that the DC heroine’s saga has held up better than most superhero movies. Neither critics nor customers thought much of the film. It’s not going to be the kind of smash that the similar “Straight Outta Compton” was two years ago, but as a smaller sleeper hit, it still seems to be surprising the experts the same way.But it’s also notable that there hasn’t been a movie this clearly targeted toward African-Americans since “Get Out” four months ago,” or “Hidden Figures” a few weeks before that. As a possible sign that the “Cars” franchise is running out of gas creatively, “Cars 3” has the lowest opening among the trilogy and, adjusted for inflation, among all Pixar movies except “The Good Dinosaur.”None of this matters to the young target audience, who gave the movie an A grade at CinemaScore. 1 with an estimated $53.5 million) and a superhero holdover continuing to rake it in (that’d be “Wonder Woman,” which earned a healthy estimated $40.7 million in its third weekend).But what you were really seeing, if you looked beyond the top two movies, was a weekend where underserved audiences finally had a reason to go to the theater. And even “Rough Night” is the sort of comedy that’s said to translate poorly to foreign audiences.No wonder this weekend’s total domestic box office was up 30 percent from last week, making this the sixth biggest weekend of the year to date. You wouldn’t think of them as an underserved demographic, but really, there’s been nothing for them all summer; even the decidedly juvenile cartoon “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” has a PG-rated sense of humor that plays to older preteens and even adults. But “Cars 3” is G-rated, playing to an audience that was 75 percent families and 35 percent kids 12 and under.If anything, critics have grumbled that “Cars 3” may be too kid-oriented. Having lassoed nearly $275 million in 17 days, “Wonder Woman” is poised to overtake “Man of Steel” ($291 million) and possibly “Suicide Squad” ($325 million) and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ($330 million) as the top domestic earner in the DC Extended Universe so far.Women were also the power behind the sleeper success of “47 Meters Down.” No one expected much from the sisters-vs.-sharks tale, from new independent distributor Entertainment Studios. That explains the over-performances of “All Eyez on Me,” the Tupac Shakur biopic that surprised in third place with an estimated $27.1 million, and “47 Meters Down,” a low-budget shark-attack thriller from a newbie distributor which managed to debut in fifth place with a better-than-expected estimated of $11.5 million. Nonetheless, audiences loved the movie, judging by its A- grade at CinemaScore. Posted June 19, 2017 by Gary SusmanIf you’ve been feeling ignored by Hollywood lately — if you haven’t found a movie at the theater that feels targeted toward you and your demographic — then this should have been the weekend for you.Sure, on the surface, this looked like a typical summer weekend, with one high-profile new release from one of the season’s usual heavy-hitters (in this case, Pixar, whose “Cars 3” premiered at No. And it’s also notable that, like those films, “Eyez” clearly crossed over beyond that target demographic to attract general audiences, as is apparent from the movie’s success in pre-opening sales at Fandango. It may even explain the failure of Scarlett Johansson’s all-female ensemble comedy “Rough Night,” which underwhelmed in its seventh-place debut with just an estimated $8.0 million opening.Here’s who made a rare visit to the popcorn counter this weekend, and here’s what they saw.Young children. Instead of the steep drops we usually see in comic-book films after the first weekend, “Wonder Woman” dipped just 43 percent last weekend and just 30 percent this weekend.
Posted June 19, 2017 by Kelly WooWinter isn’t the only thing coming on Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” — all-out war is here!A new promo released on HBO Spain’s Facebook page features footage from Season 7 and most of it teases a clash of the various titans: Daenerys Targaryen’s invading army, Cersei Lannister and her royal soldiers, and the Northern lords commanded by Jon Snow.Most of the footage is behind-the-scenes, showing the battles being filmed. There’s a cool shot of soldiers getting torched by fire — add in a CGI dragon and it looks like Daenerys could be deploying her babies as the ultimate weapons. There are also brief glimpses of Daenerys getting her first look at Dragonstone, a new maester character in the Citadel, Jaime riding to battle, and Brienne and Pod training with swords. “Game of Thrones” Season 7 premieres July 16 on HBO.
Go see it. Also, it’s really cool.We had to ask Fanning, Dunst, and Coppola about what went into the creation of the photo (above), and spoke to the stars about what it was like re-teaming with the acclaimed director (who just took home the Best Director award at Cannes), which you can watch below.”The Beguiled” opens in limited release this Friday before expanding everywhere next week. It was one of those perfect pop culture mash-ups that seems to only come around every so often and can only be facilitated by the rise and widespread implementation of social media. Posted June 19, 2017 by Drew TaylorBack in November of last year an amazing gift was given to the Internet: both Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning released photos on their Instagram accounts where they painstakingly recreated a moment from Beyonce’s “Sorry” music video. It’s as refreshing as a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. Since they were in period costuming, filming Sofia Coppola’s upcoming (and very brilliant) remake of Clint Eastwood’s “The Beguiled,” it added an even cooler dimension, especially given the very “Lemonade”-y themes of the film (female empowerment, revenge, etc).
Those people were shouted down, though, with fans writing variations of “this is how a husband should feel about their own wife. We should probably expect to see that T-shirt pop up again next Mother’s Day, and on individual anniversaries.FYI, here’s the story of how Gadot and Versano met, which shows he knew very early on that he’d be crazy to let her go.Want more stuff like this? And hateful. Once wives see that shirt they will expect husbands to not only give them flowers but wear that t-shirt. Pure and simple. Like us on Facebook. not getting offended with it. Wonder Woman, so other husbands or wives can show support for their Wonder-ful wife.However, because the Internet is contrary by nature, a very small percentage took issue with the shirt as “problematic” because it insults other wives. duh 💆🏻 im looking for the same shirt for my husband.”(When your husband wears it, maybe try to remove the bar code at the bottom?)All those who attacked Gal Gadot’s husband for wearing that shirt are jealous. You can see his pride all over Instagram, with photos of Gadot and their children.Late last week, he showed off his new T-shirt, putting his Wonder Woman wife above all others:#mywife #therealwonderwoman ❤️A post shared by JaronVarsano (@jaronvarsano) on Jun 15, 2017 at 11:45am PDTMost fans absolutely loved the shirt, appreciating a husband doting on his wife. Posted June 19, 2017 by Gina CarboneYaron Varsano clearly knows he’s lucky to be married to “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot. — Abygale Moon (@hootowl_moon) June 17, 2017Absolutely. The shirt is available for others, it’s not custom made for Mr. — Kytheese (@Kytheese) June 18, 2017Great marketing scheme.
