Watch: Melissa McCarthy Is Not Your Average Secret Agent In New Trailer For 'Spy'

4 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This year, you're getting spy movies in a variety of flavors. If you like them made for teenage boys, you've already been served "Kingsman: The Secret Service." Later this year, 007 will keep things dour with "Spectre," while Tom Cruise hopes to get your blood pumping with "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation." But coming before those films is the simply-titled "Spy," with Melissa McCarthy showing it's not just chiseled dudes who can save the world. A new trailer has dropped for the spoof which brings together an eager ensemble — Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Miranda Hart, and Jude Law — for the Paul Feig-directed movie that follows an unassuming CIA agent, more used to office work than taking out bad guys, who is suddenly thrust into the world of international espionage. And it's an effort that our critic at SXSW called "an uneven but undeniably entertaining. »

The Riot Club: When Being Posh Is Not Enough

15 hours ago | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Those of us who lead hapless lives know how frightening getting up in the morning can be. Instead of rising and embracing the daylight with an ardent cuddle and a zealous "Yahoo!" we see grey clouds overhead and wonder aloud, "What now?" Another egg carton with broken shells? A second bedbug infestation within twelve months? Still no replies to our Christian Mingles ad even though we've noted we can recite the Book of Revelation by heart in Latin?

Ah, if only we were born into a family of elites. The ultra-rich. Aristocrats with an enviable gene pool.

But instead we're impoverished and pear-shaped with squinty eyes and in need of Proactiv+.

On top of these misfortunes, we really know the gods are against us if while fingering the remote, we accidentally come across Joshua Jackson in The Skulls (2000), and begin to watch it out of inertia. This incapacitating thriller was inspired by Yale's secretive society, »

18 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Zhane Hall has joined the cast of Fox’s small screen version of the sci-fi movie based on the 1956 Philip K. Dick science fiction short story, "The Minority Report," which starred Tom Cruise, and was directed by Steven Spielberg. Fox's TV series version will be set 10 years after the events of the film, which concluded with law enforcement’s Precrime division being disbanded. In the show, a female detective who is haunted by her past, teams up with a Precog that's still plagued by visions (similar to the movie, although the genders of each character has been swapped). Zhane Hall joins the previously-cast Meagan Good, who stars as the female detective - Lara Vega. Hall will play her son in the series. Daniel London, Li Jun Li, and Laura Regan are also members of the cast. Hall, a new face, has only 1 credit to his name - the 2015 TV One movie »

5 grimly hilarious moments in Scientology's history

21 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Frankly, I am still coping with every odious aspect of Scientology as illustrated in "Going Clear," HBO's blockbuster documentary about L. Ron Hubbard's glitzy "church" and its indoctrinated, oft-abused followers. Plenty is not funny about what's done to keep devoted followers in horrifying conditions. For instance: Who knows where David Miscavige's wife Shelly is? According to Tony Ortega, who was featured in "Going Clear," it's nowhere you want to be.  But even the grimmest absurdity is often hilarious, as "Going Clear" itself proved. As we begin to understand everything we learned (or re-learned) in "Going Clear," let's focus on five moments in Scientology's history that are undeniably, insanely, creepily funny.  1. That L. Ron Hubbard has said -- in print -- "I'd like to start a religion. That's where the real money is."  In fact, L. Ron Hubbard said several versions of this statement worded several different ways. It's just a fact. »

21 Insane Scientology Stories That Going Clear Left Out

22 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The revelations in last night's premiere of Alex Gibney's doc Going Clear left plenty of mouths agape — from abuse allegations at Sea Org to charges that John Travolta is being blackmailed — but 119 minutes wasn't nearly long enough to cover every Scientology scandal. What about Katie Holmes? And David Miscavige's "missing" wife, Shelly? We've rounded a few of the craziest stories that didn't make the final cut of Going Clear. (Did someone say "sequel"?) Katie Holmes No, you didn’t miss the part where they talked about Katie Holmes, because they never talked about Katie Holmes. Going Clear skipped straight from Nicole Kidman to the Nazanin Boniadi incident, a.k.a. when they tried to cast Tom Cruise's new girlfriend. But what about his six-year marriage to Holmes? How Katie broke off her engagement to fellow actor Chris Klein and flew to Los Angeles to meet the star »

Revisiting Clear And Present Danger: the best Jack Ryan film

30 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

An intelligent, dense political thriller in the middle of summer? We visit Harrison Ford in Tom Clancy's Clear And Present Danger...

This article contains spoilers for, er, Clear And Present Danger.

How many times have you walked out of seeing a big summer blockbuster movie, and felt like you'd been treated like a grown-up? Christopher Nolan movies, whether you like them or not, treat you with that level of respect. But when it comes to major thrillers, there's generally something about them where you feel you've been shortchanged.

It's why it puzzles me that Clear And Present Danger doesn't get a lot more love. From the day I saw it for the first time back in 1994, and on every viewing since, I've really loved this film. I love that it isn't afraid of a dense plot, isn't afraid of putting a big movie star on the poster yet finds time for supporting characters, »

Katie Holmes Gives Suri Cruise the Absolutely Sweetest Night Out

29 March 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Being Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's daughter comes with awesome perks, and Suri Cruise cashed in big time on Saturday. The adorable young lady, who will celebrate her ninth birthday next month, had a ball with her mom and a pal at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards in La. The highlight of her night came when paper blimp cutouts were unleashed. Little Suri couldn't contain her excitement, throwing her arms up and smiling like a kid in a candy store. Meanwhile, her proud mom was beaming while holding her mini me. The star-studded night got even cuter, thanks to Angelina Jolie's sweet moments with two of her and husband Brad Pitt's kids, Zahara and Shiloh. Katie and Suri's rare public appearance together follows reports that Katie may have struck up a casual romance with Jamie Foxx, one of her long-term pals. Relationship chatter aside, it's been a transformative time for Katie. »

Katie Holmes Brings Suri to First Public Event In a Year -- See Kids' Choice Pics!

29 March 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

There she is! Aside from a back-of-the-head Instagram shot here or there, we haven't seen too much of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's daughter Suri in almost an entire year -- but last night, she had a girls' night out with her mama. The 8-year-old tot attended the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards with Katie on Saturday night, the two photographed in the audience with a family friend.  Clad in an ombre skirt, denim vest and quilted purse, Suri looked just like her famous mother, who was dressed in a low-cut, loose-fitting top and white pants.  The last time we saw Tom and Katie's little girl in public was back in March 2014, when she attended a basketball game with Holmes. The former "Dawson's Creek" star opened up about being a single mom back in October, telling People, "I’m learning every day, and I have been since the minute I became a mom. »

The Weekend Read: Autism in entertainment from 'Rain Man' to 'Community'

28 March 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Weekend Read: Our Saturday essay on the great topics in entertainment and culture today. Last weekend, as Toshi was cruising the Blu-ray shelves for new movies to start asking about, he pulled "Rain Man" on a shelf and considered the cover for a moment before he turned to me, excited. "You didn't tell me Tom Cruise made a superhero movie!" I can only assume his eventual disappointment might be tempered by the fact that "Rain Man" is a pretty good movie. It had been a while since I'd seen it, though, and after they went back to their mom's house, I put it in to watch it. I remember when it came out being right in the midst of my first time watching a lot of classic filmographies, and more than anything, I enjoyed the film as a match-up between Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Looking at the film, »

Top 5: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Trailer, Super Troopers 2, Spectre Teaser, Get Hard, The X-Files Returning

28 March 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now available on Blu-ray/DVD is Chris Rock's comedy Top Five. Paramount released the pic to theaters in mid-December where it grossed just north of $25 million at the domestic box office against an estimated production budget of $12 million. I missed its theatrical run but caught the film on Xbox Video last night and can safely say it's my favorite piece of work from Rock who writes, directs, and stars. Smart, funny, brash, and introspective, Top Five sees the comedian star alongside Rosario Dawson as a fictional version of himself, actor/comedian Andre Allen. Dawson plays a New York Times journalist who is interviewing Allen on the heels of the release of his new movie (a supposed serious film about the Haitian slave rebellion that Allen hopes will help him shed his comedic typecast) and this setup provides the framework for the rest of the story. Rock's screenplay is chock »

“Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” another winner from Alex Gibney

27 March 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

You may have been somewhat familiar with the religion of Scientology if you are a fan of two of its most famous adherents, Tom Cruise and John Travolta, but Alex Gibney’s striking documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, making its debut March 29 on HBO, goes way beyond the external facade to reveal an — at best, weird; at worst, frightening, abusive and borderline fascistic — organization. Cruise and Travolta are, of course, featured in prominent portions of the documentary (although both declined to participate in the film, archival footage is offered, including a segment with Cruise speaking … Continue reading →

The 6 Most Miraculous Things Scientology Has Ever Done (According to Scientologists)

27 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

According to Alex Gibney's Going Clear, which airs on HBO Sunday night, the Church of Scientology is a vindictive, repressive cult responsible for decades of criminal harassment and abuse. But, as numerous Church members will tell you, that's just half of the story. The other half is the testimony of Scientology's devoted celebrity members, who credit the religion with extraordinary healing powers. Their stories are literally incredible! According to its adherents, Scientology can ... Cure dyslexia.Tom Cruise struggled with dyslexia throughout his childhood, and says he was "functionally illiterate" when he graduated high school. That changed in 1986, when Cruise discovered Study Tech, L. Ron Hubbard's educational method that emphasizes learning through physical representations of subjects. (Educators have called it "moronic," but "fairly harmless.") Cruise credits Study Tech with curing his dyslexia, and has since started the Hollywood Education Literacy Project to recruit others to the cause — of literacy! »
