Demi Lovato Kicks ‘Bae’ Guilherme Vasconcelos’ Butt with Her Jiu-Jitsu Skills

17 February 2017 7:14 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Demi Lovato may be a white belt in jiu-jitsu, but she’s kicking butt and taking names.

The songstress showed off her combat skills against boyfriend and Mma Bellator fighter Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos in an Instagram video on Friday.

“When you kick bae’s ass,” Lovato captioned the clip of the pair playfully wrestling around at the Unbreakable Performance Gym in West Hollywood.

And did you catch her Ronda Rousey-like armbar at the end?

The pop star, 24, and Brazilian welterweight, 30, were first linked back in July when an insider told People they “had a quick fling” that ended shortly after. »

Study Finds Growth in Reality-tv Streaming

16 February 2017 12:53 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Streaming-video viewing of reality-television programming is on the rise, according to a new study by 7Park Data.

The firm’s newest study of Ott viewership found that reality-tv viewing is up 10.3% from one year ago on Hulu and up 28.3% on Netflix — making reality one of the biggest growth genres for the two services.

The increases for reality series programming come as Netflix plans its first major unscripted original series, “Ultimate Beastmaster” from executive producer Sylvester Stallone. “Unscripted television is a very interesting business,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said at a conference in December, adding that the company is focusing on shows that are “more likely to travel internationally.”

History programming was also a big gainer on both services, up 32.1% on Hulu and 70.1% on Netflix. Family programming gained 36.1% on Hulu and 9.6% on Netflix. Documentary-series programming gained 9% on Hulu and 11.5% on Netflix.

Horror showed the steepest decline on Hulu down 42.4%. Sports-related programming was the biggest decliner on »

Great Job, Internet!: It’s time for a fond reappraisal of Sylvester Stallone’s 1996 action flop Daylight

15 February 2017 7:48 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Action got apocalyptic in the mid-’90s. Advances in special effects revived the disaster genre of the ’70s, resulting in the box office hit that was Armageddon and any number of big-budgeted imitators. Some of the latter were good (Deep Impact), but most were lame (Volcano, Dante’s Peak, The Core). And then there was 1996’s Daylight, which found firefighter Sylvester Stallone leading a cast of character actors through New York City’s Holland Tunnel after an explosion sealed off all the exits. It bombed in the U.S. and has since dropped off the cultural radar, but the gang at GoodBadFlicks is hoping to repair that reputation.

In this nine-minute analysis, GoodBadFlicks unloads a treasure trove of trivia and making-of info, with highlights including the almost-casting of Nicolas Cage, Stallone’s fear of water, and the use of 2,000 trained rats. That latter detail points to what ...

What Is the Most Ridiculous Sex Scene From a Movie? — IndieWire Critics Survey

13 February 2017 9:44 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Fifty Shades Darker,” what is the most ridiculous sex scene from a movie?

Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC), Vulture/Film Comment

I’m sure others will easily top this, but I always think of Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone in the terrible 1994 action film “The Specialist,” having laboriously glossy, oiled, carefully pube-concealing, solemn, positionally exhausting intercourse while mouthing tedious expository dialogue in a shower that appears to be the size of a studio apartment. The 90s were a boom time for bad movie sex, and this is Hall of Fame level in that so much money, time and effort has gone »

Julianne Moore and Molly Ringwald Are Supportive Stage Moms as Their Teen Daughters Model for J.Crew

13 February 2017 8:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The fashion industry is always desperately on the hunt for the next big face, Instagram It Girl or catwalk queen. And lately, that position has been filled by the children of some of your favorite celebrities. Perhaps we should blame Bella and Gigi Hadid whose mom Yolanda first made a name for herself on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but ever since their rise to monumental modeling success we’ve seen a whole slew of new sons and daughters of the A-list emerge and take their place amongst the hottest newcomers to watch, from Bob Dylan’s grandson to Sylvester Stallone’s daughter. »

The Rock Congratulates Bray Wyatt on his WWE Title

13 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Other than the Grammy Awards and Saturday Night Live, one of the biggest stories over the weekend was Bray Wyatt’s victory securing him the World Championship belt in the WWE. While I think the collective public and even WWE fans around the country know that wrestling is fake, it was still be “news” that Wyatt won. Even though the victory was predetermined and 99% of the match choreographed, it was big news. That’s like literally congratulating Sylvester Stallone for beating Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. Still though, fans were loving the fact that Wyatt won.  Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Erase and Forget: new documentary reveals life story of the real Rambo

13 February 2017 7:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Vietnam veteran ‘Bo’ Gritz went on covert operations in Panama, recovered POWs in Burma and even ran for president. Andrea Luka Zimmerman spent 10 years creating a cinematic portrait of the war hero turned whistleblower

John Rambo, the character famously played by Sylvester Stallone, was said to have been inspired by tales of this decorated Vietnam veteran’s feats behind enemy lines. Cigar-chomping Colonel “Hannibal” Smith was loosely based on his adventures with a real-life A-team. And for Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola wanted to superimpose Marlon Brando’s head on to a photograph showing this legendary soldier surrounded by a bunch of Cambodian mercenaries.

Like his filmic alter egos, James Gordon “Bo” Gritz was frequently confronted with violence and destruction during a lengthy military career. By his own claims, he killed more than 400 people in operations ranging from the Bay of Pigs to Afghanistan.

James Gunn teases “cool” Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opening credits

13 February 2017 6:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Gunn is one of the most active filmmakers on social media. Even more interesting is his relaxed attitude toward answering questions with blunt honesty, even if it’s his summer blockbuster tent-pole for Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

With that said, earlier on Twitter a fan asked about what the opening credits for the sequel will be like, to which James Gunn had a very simple but exciting answer. Check out the exchange below…

No. It’s going to be cooler. https://t.co/9T3pGsNaJM

Berlin Film Review: ‘Erase and Forget’

12 February 2017 11:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The closing credits of a documentary always include a list of film and TV clips, along with the sources that granted their permission to use them. At the end of “Erase and Forget,” the list is jarringly different: It’s a catalogue of clips lifted right off of YouTube, listed simply by their URL addresses, with no permission given. This could prove to be a legal-rights nightmare for any company that was interested in distributing “Erase and Forget.” And it’s of a piece with the film’s thrown-together student-movie naïveté. The director, Andrea Luka Zimmermann, hasn’t so much made a documentary as presented 90 minutes’ worth of raw material for a documentary. Yet Zimmermann has grabbed hold of the tail of a fascinating subject: the life of James “Bo” Gritz, the Vietnam veteran who enjoyed 15 minutes of fame in the 1980s (he was said to have inspired the character »

Sylvester Stallone Does Pilates With Daughter Sophia For the First Time: 'It Ain't Cute'

11 February 2017 8:14 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If Rocky can't handle Pilates, who can?

Joining his 20-year-old eldest daughter Sophia, actor Sylvester Stallone, known for kicking butt and taking names in the classic Rocky flicks, gave the trendy core exercise a try on Friday. The workout was so intense, he even compared it to taking on Rocky Balboa boxing rivals Clubber Lang and Captain Ivan Drago, but "before breakfast."

"Brutal!" the 70-year-old actor captioned an Instagram testimonial featuring both him and his daughter post-Pilates. "This is an amazing workout but definitely not for the faint of heart. I've lifted weights, I have boxed, wrestled, track and field, played football and many other sports… But this workout pushes you to the limit… and beyond!"

In the clip, Stallone let his followers know what to expect if they decide to give the workout a shot.

Sylvester Stallone Tries Out Pilates with Daughter Sophia: ‘The Name Sounds Cute, But It Ain’t Cute!’

10 February 2017 8:06 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sylvester Stallone is one of the most recognizable actors in the world thanks to his iconic role as Rocky, but on Friday it was a different kind of workout that had him panting for breath.

The Creed actor, 70, joined daughter Sophia Rose, 20, at the gym for a pilates workout and seemed stunned by the “brutal” workout.

“I gotta admit that was brutal,” the actor said in a video on Instagram, his daughter by his side. “For anyone who has never tried pilates, the name sounds cute but it ain’t cute! It’s tough. Oh my God.”

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Test Screening Earns Rare Perfect Score

10 February 2017 12:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was already expected to be a huge hit this summer, but we got even more proof of this notion earlier this week, when fans voted the Guardians 2 Super Bowl trailer as the best movie commercial that aired during the big game. Today we have word that this superhero sequel accomplished a Marvel first, months before the movie even hits theaters. Insiders claim that, during a recent test screening, the sequel earned a rare and possibly unprecedented perfect score of 100. Marvel's approach to the test screening process is a bit different from other studios', but it is still the first time a Marvel movie has ever scored 100.

While it isn't clear when and where the test screening took place, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that most other studios recruit random people for their test screenings at grocery stores and supermarkets in Los Angeles, but Marvel »

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast Masters Of The Universe!!

10 February 2017 11:08 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We'd like to forget all about the last attempt at a live-action Masters of The Universe movie. Sorry, Dolph! Great hair, though.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends (Jeremy Scully and I, Mario-Francisco Robles) get together to cast/pitch our dream movies. 

In the past, we've tackled everything from The Batman to the Universal Monsters.

This week, we turn our attention towards the long-gestating cinematic reboot of Masters of The Universe. Jeremy and I grew up on the classic 80s cartoon, and I had a ton of the old action figures. Yet even we knew, as children, that the 1987 movie starring Dolph Lundgren was crap. That's why we'd like to put our own spin on what the reboot should look/feel like.

Over the years, many filmmakers and various studios have tried and failed to get a Masters of The Universe movie off of the ground. »

Berlin Hidden Gem: 'Erase & Forget' Introduces the Man Who Inspired 'Rambo'

9 February 2017 9:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The life of Lt. Col. James Gordon Gritz — a decorated Vietnam veteran who led convert suicide missions against insurgents and claims to have 400 confirmed kills — reads like an ‘80s action film. He’s said to be the real-life inspiration for two cultural touchstones: Rambo and Col. John ‘Hannibal’ Smith of The A-Team.

But the story of James "Bo" Gritz (rhymes with “bites”), as told in Andrea Luka Zimmerman’s documentary Erase & Forget, is stranger than any Sylvester Stallone pic or primetime TV series. Bo has trained Afghan mujahideen in a secret camp in the Nevada desert, and he’s carried »

Every Action Star That Needs to Be in Expendables 4

9 February 2017 7:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sylvester Stallone is the master at making the most out of simplicity. So good is this action legend at taking a basic idea and making it exist forever, that eventually he tries to give said idea a certain degree of gravitas. How does he do this you say?

Take Rocky Balboa. In the first film, this lovable schlub just wants to have a girlfriend and go the distance in a dream title fight. By the fourth film in this wondrous saga, Rocky is defending America on Russian soil and beating a fighter who (realistically) would have Ko'd the Italian Stallion in 1 round. In fact, Rocky was almost Ko'd in one round, however, the referee let it go on. How's that for Sylvester Stallone making the most of something simple?

He did the same thing with Rambo. In the first film, John Rambo was a simple man who just wanted to »

Sylvester Stallone’s Escape Plan 2 finds its director

8 February 2017 12:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There was something nostalgic about 2013 prison thriller Escape Plan and the sequel to the movie that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone has now found its director.

The original film’s plot centred on a high security prison as its inmates to try to break out. The film wasn’t exactly met with critical acclaim but that hasn’t stopped Efo from putting together a sequel.

We know that Stallone is on board and now according to The Tracking Board, action movie director Steven C. Miller (The Aggressions Scale, Marauders, Arsenal) has come on board to direct the movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger is not expected to appear.

The script is by the pen of Miles Chapman, the writer of the original Escape Plan. And apparently there will be some Chinese elements to the story per China distributor Leomus Pictures, with the aim of making it more accessible to its target audience. »
