On the face of it, 2014 has been a rather strange year for film, a step down from an annum of classics and simultaneously a slalom into the realms of adventure and discord. It is rather significant that now, more than halfway through December, most talk has turned to trailers and announced releases for next year, the long-term planning of industry giants and the hunt for the next super-franchise. It is simply continuing the trend; of the twenty highest grossing films of 2014 (so far), an eye-watering seventeen are sequels, adaptations (of source material or franchise brand), reworks, reboots or otherwise unoriginal content. Of the three left over, two were unheralded comedies. 2015 promises more of the same, with the arrival of Jurassic World, Terminator Genisys (sic), Mad Max: Fury Road as well as Avengers 2, The Hunger Games 4, Fast and Furious 7, Taken 3 and a Fantastic Four reboot. Oh yeah, and Fifty Shades of Sh Grey… »

Nicki Minaj's latest album, The Pinkprint (which our critic Lindsay Zoladz called a "badass breakup album"), got a visual accompaniment yesterday: three music videos staged in three acts, starting with "The Crying Game," "I Lied," and ending with "Grand Piano." As you might expect, it's her most emo moment yet: a little bit Matthew McConaughey in the Lincoln ads, a little bit Enya in the rain, and all Nicki Minaj. If you have a spare 16 minutes or need to wind down before you go to bed on a Saturday night, here you go. »

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée.
Attempting to recover from a traumatic life event, a young woman sets out on a 1,100 mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail.
Based on her memoirs, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, the film tells the story of Cheryl Strayed (Witherspoon) as she sets out on a quest to reclaim her former, more respectable self. “I’m going to walk myself back to the woman my mother thought I was,” she states at some point along the way. The tragic loss of her mother Bobbi (Laura Dern), who escapes an abusive marriage only to succumb to lung cancer at age 45, acts as a catalyst »

Spoiler Alert: Stop reading if you haven’t seen Friday’s edition of “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.”
Ferguson signed off after 2,058 episodes in characteristically quirky fashion, running through many of the show’s regular comedy bits, such as bantering with sidekick Geoff the talking robot skeleton and showcasing Secretariat, the show’s “fake horse” brought to life by two people in a classic pantomime horse costume.
The guest segment featured Jay Leno in a candid, and for Ferguson fairly low-key, session of swapping stories of talkshow host gripes about lame guests, pushy publicists and the trials of aging on the job. Leno, who signed off “The Tonight Show” in February, looked like a guy who’s been semi-retired for 10 months, »

In a year where many supposedly bright new comedies left us feeling a bit disappointed, we could always rely on Brooklyn Nine-Nine to actually make us laugh out loud.

THR has released an official list of the most viewed trailers of 2014. And you may be surprised to see which movie came in first. While a lot of your are probably guessing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was actually Fifty Shades of Grey that took top honors. While Star Wars: The Force Awakens had the best start of the year, grabbing 58.2 million views in its first five days of release, it was Fifty Shades of Grey that won the race with its four month head start. The trailer has been viewed 93 million times on Youtube since its July 24 release. Don't feel too bad for Star Wars 7, though, as it came in second place with 81 million Youtube views since its debut over Thanksgiving weekend. In third place was Avengers: Age of Ultron with 78 million views. Here is the full top 20 list of most watched trailers followed by the trailers themselves. »
"Congratulations! We’ve made it through another spin around the sun." Indeed we have. Since we're at the end of the year, it's not uncommon to see endless tributes and retrospectives recapping the year. "Here's to 2014" is yet another, but it packs in more than just a few events. Made by the graphics company behind the 85 Best Picture Oscar Winners infographic we featured in February, called Beutler Ink, the graphic (seen below) includes references to nearly every major movie, pop culture moment, or news event, from Too Many Cooks to the death of Robin Williams, The Lego Movie, Interstellar and Ghostbusters, too. The only thing missing is some kind of reference to the Sony Hack, but The Interview guys may be in there. Take a look! From the poem on their website: "The Lego Movie made it hip to be square, and Matthew McConaughey was everywhere. We made some new friends and lost some old, »

What kind of circle is time again? A year after blowing the doors off our annual critics’ poll, golden boy Matthew McConaughey won just a single vote for his turn in the loudest movie of the year, Christopher Nolan’s tears-in-space effort Interstellar, which has tied with the unprescient Transcendence as 2014’s worst film. (Transcendence dreamed that Johnny Depp’s character would take over every screen in the world — that didn’t happen.) But his margin of victory lives on, this year in the form of Marion Cotillard, who wins best actress twice: first for the Dardenne brothers’ vote-gathering drama Two Days, One Night, then besting second-place Scarlett Johansson (Under the Skin) with her turn in Ja »

If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.
The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

Blame “True Detective,” in part, which helped kick off 2014 in rousing fashion, but the blurred line between “limited series” and just plain old series has complicated the definition of a “drama.” But for the purposes of a year-end list, the two can coexist, encompassing any program presented on an episodic basis, even if the story offered closure.
By that measure, both “True Detective” and “Fargo” — the latter categorized as a miniseries for Emmy balloting — as well as Starz’s “The Missing” can join an array of dramas that, frankly, could easily fill a “top 20” list. But who on Earth has time to click through that?
Obviously, reducing the current age of drama to an arbitrary tally is going to overlook several heavy hitters, and the roster underwent considerable tinkering right down till the end. Series like “The Walking Dead,” “Mad Men” and “Downton Abbey” – -which all would have qualified in the past –- didn’t, »
