The X Factor 2014: week three as it happened

10 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It was movie madness week, and Stuart Heritage was there for all three incredibly long acts.

10.00pm BST

And, while Dermot locks into his three solid minutes of tedious number-reading, Im out of here. Thanks for coming along and joining in. Three things that you shouldnt forget:

1. You should come back here tomorrow night at 8pm for the X Factor results show liveblog, because the guests will be Ed Sheeran and OneRepublic and theyre apparently quite popular. Also: lets all hope that I remember to put the clocks back tonight, otherwise theres a pretty good chance Ill accidentally end up liveblogging that crap-looking Bradley Walsh gameshow instead.

9.58pm BST

All the judges are saying how nice Hank is. Youre A Monster, Stuart. A Monster. A Monster. A Monster.

9.56pm BST

Things I like about this performance: a load of green lights are pointing at Hank, and that makes him look »

22 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

With Halloween fast approaching, EW is picking the five best films in a variety of different horror movie categories. Each day, we’ll post our top picks from specific group—say, zombie movies or demon films—and give you the chance to vote on which is your favorite. On Oct. 31, EW will reveal your top choices. Today, we’re taking on the slasher flick.  Most slasher flicks boil down to the following ingredients: teenagers (usually described as "nubile") a slow-moving, indestructible serial killer determined to kill said teenagers, death indirectly caused by promiscuity, and the chaste Final Girl, who outlives »

20 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

As the holiday season approaches and we’re all left scrambling to figure out what to get our significant others (if you have significant others, if you don’t Keep It That Way…jk), it can be a hell of a time cracking the code that is making your wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend happy with whatever you choose. It can be especially hard when being for me. I know this, because I am on, and I’m one of the most difficult people to buy things for, not because I’m a dick, but because I’m just very particular about what I like. Actually, it’s because I’m a dick, but I digress.

With all of that being said, the folks at Man Crates, Gifts for men,  are looking to get rid of that problem, and now they’re delving deeper into not only pleasing men with some manly gifts, »

The X Factor 2014: week two as it happened

19 October 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This week, X Factor introduced its contestants to the 1980s and then eliminated two of them. Heres the whole weekend as it happened, with Stuart Heritage.

8.58pm BST

And that really is it. Four down, twelve to go. So, as we say goodbye to Stephanie and Chloe, let me quickly just thank you for coming along and making me miss the first 15 minutes of Homeland because Ive got to read all your comments now.

The liveblog returns next Saturday, for X Factors Songs From The Movies night, where the contestants are almost guaranteed to sing a selection of songs from plays and TV shows and adverts but not from actual films. If this deluge of gibberish inexplicably isnt enough for you, follow me on Twitter (Im @StuHeritage). If it is, though, then who could possibly blame you? See you next week!

Stars Step Up to Fight Ebola

17 October 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Celebs are raising awareness for ebola and learning how life imitates art.

Hollywood celebrities are stepping up to raise money and awareness to fight the ebola outbreak that has killed thousands in West Africa and recently spread to the United States. Stars such as David Beckham, Whoopi Goldberg, and Idris Elba are speaking out and making PSAs to spark a public response to the disease.

Footloose star Kevin Bacon went back to his dance roots to contribute to the #ShakeOffEbola social media campaign with a viral video.

"It was specifically about trying to raise money for another care facility in Sierra Leone, and it was an idea based on the fact that West Africa has a long history of dance," the actor said. "It’s obviously something we have to take as seriously as possible."

Some critics believe Hollywood is late to the cause.

"I think there was some of the 'not in my backyard' feeling going on »

Poor Chinese Subtitle Translation On Guardians Of The Galaxy Leads To Bad Reviews

17 October 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

That loveable, funny bunch of misfits, the Guardians Of The Galaxy, won’t be found in any cinemas across China. While the movie in which they appear opened recently in the country, you’d come up short trying to find a multiplex where it’s showing. That’s all down to one simple, and very detrimental, aspect of overseas film distribution: translations. Nope, if you wanna catch Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax kicking butt in China, you’ll have to ask at the box office for one ticket to Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team. No, we’re not kidding.

A title might not deter a Chinese cinemagoer, however, what if the content is so completely garbled that it’s simply not funny? Aye – that’s a different matter indeed and one which was addressed by China Daily. The news outlet reports that audiences faced a complete lack of (intentional) humour, »

Tremors 5 Is Coming and Michael Gross Is Back!

17 October 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I've got some awesome news for all you Tremors fans out there! Tremors 5 is in development, and weapons enthusiast Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) will be back to take on some more deadly graboids. Only this time his adventure will take place in South Africa.

The news come from Bloody Disgusting, who says that the film not only includes the classic graboid creatures and the Ass Blasters, but a brand new creature will be introduced as well. Here's the synopsis that was released:

"The theatrical release of the original Tremors in 1990 combined suspense-filled action, sci-fi imagination and witty humor in the tale of a tiny Nevada town terrorized by giant man-eating worms known as Graboids. The Graboids eventually morphed into even more deadly creatures known as Ass Blasters. In this all-new adventure that travels halfway around the world to South Africa, the Graboids and the Ass Blasters are not only bigger »

Shawn Ashmore Talks The Following Season 3, Having a New Showrunner, X-men, and More at Nycc

16 October 2014 3:48 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

With The Following showrunner Kevin Williamson leaving after last season to head up his new CBS series, Stalker, the show upped writers Brett Mahoney and Alexi Hawley to executive producers alongside director Marcos Siega, the series’ long-time on-set executive producer.  While some shows suffer when a new leader takes control, The Following wrapped up the long running storyline of the first two seasons in the recent finale, which makes season three able to start anew.  Of course the show will still be dealing with the ramifications of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), but the new showrunners can take the keys knowing they can plot their own course. Last weekend at New York Comic-Con, I was able to participate in a roundtable interview with Shawn Ashmore where he talked about The Following season 3.  He discussed how the first episode will reveal the mysterious character in the last scene of season 2, if he »

Neil Patrick Harris as Oscar Host: Edgier Than You Think

16 October 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Neil Patrick Harris was the perfect choice to host the Oscars — but maybe not for the obvious reasons.

When Variety broke the announcement of the host Wednesday, industry reaction was positive. He’s like the Sara Lee of performers: Nobody doesn’t like Nph. But some shrugged that he was a safe choice.

Here are three reasons why TV viewers and the Academy should be excited:

1. He actually Is edgy: True, he has proven his ability when hosting the Tony and Emmy Awards. But Harris is also capable of being edgier than that. On Broadway in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” he showed a demented energy, like a combination of Al Pacino in “Dog Day Afternoon” and Anna Magnani in just about everything she made.

At June’s Tony Awards on CBS, he performed a “Hedwig” number, which took him into the audience. The lap dances for Sting and Kevin Bacon were funny, »

Color us intrigued!At the panel for the show, it was revealed that Season Three will pick up one year after the events of Season Two, with flashbacks to fill in the blanks.

Kevin Bacon Talks The Following Season 3 at Nycc; Says “There Is Evil Bigger Than Joe Carroll”

'The Following' Season 3 Trailer; Will There Be a Season 4?

12 October 2014 2:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) gets attacked by a knife-wielding enemy in the first trailer for Season 3 of Fox's The Following, which returns in midseason.

The footage, which debuted during the show's New York Comic Con panel earlier today, shows a happy Ryan Hardy giving a heartfelt toast at a wedding, before he is suddenly attacked by a mysterious man. It isn't quite clear if this man has any ties to James Purefoy's Joe Carroll, but series stars Kevin Bacon, Shawn Ashmore and executive producer Marcos Siega teased new details about what fans can expect in Season 3.

The season picks up one year after Season 2, but there will be flashbacks to show what Ryan Hardy has been up to in the year since Season 2 ended. The show's writers also crafted Season 3 to welcome in new viewers, adding details so newcomers can get caught up with the show without having to watch the first two seasons. »

The X Factor 2014: first live show as it happens

12 October 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

After last nights marathon, two X Factor contestants were shown the door. Stuart Heritage liveblogged the entire weekend, as it happened.

9.14pm BST

And that really is it for the weekend. While we say goodbye and good job I didnt bother to memorise your surnames to Blonde Electra and Overload Generation, its time for me to say goodbye.

Youve been wonderful, but then again I never had any doubts to the contrary. Ill be back here next Saturday, when X Factor will only be two hours long. Imagine! Also, why not follow me on Twitter (Im @StuHeritage) to see me whining about liveblogging throughout the week in real time? Now get out of here. Weve already missed 15 minutes of Homeland.

9.12pm BST

Thankfully, this is probably the right decision. I was worried for a second there. That said, it would have been funny if theyd stayed, just because Simon hates them so much. »

Best of Late Night TV: Robert Downey Jr.'s Intense Stare-Down and Kyra Sedgwick's High (Video)

8 October 2014 11:06 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night. Robert Downey Jr. showed up on "The Tonight Show," and it was basically the best thing that's ever happened to late night television. Behold, an "intense stare-down" between Robert and Jimmy Fallon, in which they both stared into the very core of our being while reciting inner monologue like "earth, air, water fire, Dominos stuffed crust pepperoni pizza. Nom nom nom nom nom nom nom." Yes, please.

Zachary Quinto paid a visit to "Late Night" and chatted about his hometown of Pittsburgh with Seth Meyers. The highlight? When he busted out his hi-larious native accent toward the end of the clip.

Anderson Cooper showed up on "The Late Show »

The Walking Dead renewed for season 6

7 October 2014 11:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Before season five of The Walking Dead hits our screens, AMC has already announced season six…

This one from our ‘no-brainer’ department (which has nothing to do with Kevin Bacon’s awful Ee adverts): The Walking Dead will be returning for a sixth season.

The news comes soon before the fifth season of the AMC zombie drama debuts this Sunday in the States. 

The show is one of the most popular things on telly, with over 15 million viewers tuning in for the season four finale, so this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. It’s still great news for fans of the show, though.

Showrunner Scott Gimple is set to return, alongside regular executive producers Robert Kirkman (who created the series in comic format), Gale Ann Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.

Kirkman is also working on a pilot episode for a companion series with entirely new characters, »

Kyra Sedgwick Comes to 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'! The Captain Gets a Visit From 'The Closer'

3 October 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kyra Sedgwick guest stars on an all-new Brooklyn Nine-Nine this Sunday night!

Kyra Sedgwick guest stars on an all-new Brooklyn Nine-Nine this Sunday night, and we can't wait to see how "The Closer" does with comedy.

In the episode, Kyra plays Deputy Chief Wuntch, archenemy to Andre Braugher's Captain Holt. Even with decades under her belt as an actress, Kyra admitted that it's still challenging to hop in as the new girl with an established show.

News: The Secret to Kyra Sedgwick & Kevin Bacon's Marriage

"The coming back to TV part is not so weird," said Kyra who's been missing from our TVs since The Closer ended in 2012. "What's weird is being a guest star."

After playing the more serious role of Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson for seven years on The Closer, Kyra jumped into her comedic guest starring role with both feet -- even pitching a pivotal idea for the episode.

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »
