Chris Hemsworth Fails at 'Dirty Dancing' Lift in New 'SNL' Promos

7 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Turns out, not every Hollywood heartthrob is good at the Dirty Dancing lift -- as was proven by Chris Hemsworth in his Saturday Night Live promos.

Taking a cue from Patrick Swayze in the 1987 classic (and later Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love), SNL star Kate McKinnon convinces People's Sexiest Man Alive to attempt "the lift." Despite being a contestant on season 5 of Dancing with the Stars Australia, Hemsworth couldn't pull off the move.

The Thor star will be the first of the famous Hemsworth brothers to host SNL, though Liam has appeared on the sketch show. The Hunger Games hottie joined co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence on stage for Woody Harrelson's monologue when he hosted this past November.

Will Liam also show up to assist his big brother?

Tv and Film: Merging Mediums

3 March 2015 10:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Detective and The Hunger Games are the same thing. This claim may seem bold, and of course it is in large part reductive and untrue.  When looking at the way the two stories function, however, it becomes easier to see the common ground that exists between them. True Detective is essentially an episodic movie. It tells one story over eight hours, and stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, two bona fide movie stars. The Hunger Games is telling a narrative of roughly the same length, and has a cast that includes House of Cards’ Mahershala Ali and Game of ThronesNatalie Dormer. So, what exactly is the difference?

The Hunger Games series is telling us a single narrative, truly, and its latest installment, Mockingjay—Part 1, told what is really half of a complete story. What it is, in its simplest form, is an episode. While the prior two installments »

Moore Best Actress Oscar Helps 'Alice' But Not 'Maps': Box Office

1 March 2015 4:44 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Still Alice' and 'Maps to the Stars' box office: Julianne Moore Oscar helps only one movie (photo: Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') (See previous post: "'The Lazarus Effect' Box Office: Olivia Wilde Horror Movie Arrives Comatose.") The Oscars do matter. As mentioned in the previous post, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman was up an estimated 125 percent this weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, following its four Academy Award wins – including Best Picture. Also up a hefty 24 percent – after adding 553 locations – is Sony Pictures Classics' Still Alice, which earned Julianne Moore the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. True, an Oscar win – or key nominations – may not create mammoth blockbusters like Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, or Clint Eastwood's American Sniper.

Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

1 March 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

Best of Late Night TV: 'Parks and Recreation' Cast Kisses Goodbye; Josh Duhamel, Gabrielle Union Throw Food (Video)

24 February 2015 11:05 PM, PST | 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.

Seth Meyers had the cast of "Parks and Recreation" on his show Tuesday night for their big final goodbye. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, Jim O'Heir and Mike Schur discussed filming the finale, and revealed their own pitches for how they wanted the show to end. Since it's also the one-year anniversary of Seth's show, they sang an anniversary song for him, but they didn't rehearse it, so it didn't go too well. What did go very well was their "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian" song on the way out -- complete with Jim (Gerry) and Aubrey (April) making out, to the surprise of everyone around them. »

The biggest movie of 2014, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which earned $336 million at the domestic box office, finally comes home on Digital HD formats February 17, and on Blu-ray and DVD March 6.

Vince Vaughn Opens Up About 'True Detective' Season Two

13 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

As dynamic, spiritually opposite detective partners on the acclaimed first season of True Detective, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson set a formidable acting standard for the HBO mystery-drama. But Season Two star Vince Vaughn isn't worried about living up to the hype, thanks to the engrossing scripts of creator Nic Pizzolatto. "[He] is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories," Vaughn said in a recent interview with Playboy. "I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season.

Vince Vaughn talks True Detective Season 2, says it’s “very different”

13 February 2015 6:08 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With set-photos appearing online on a regular basis over the last few weeks, anticipation is building for the return of True Detective for its second season, which features a brand-new cast and new directors taking over from Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and company.

The cast for season two surprised many, but on many levels on adds to the anticipation and desire to see where creator Nic Pizzolatto takes the series next. Colin Farrell (Phone Booth), Rachel McAdams (A Most Wanted Man), Taylor Kitsch (Savages) and Kelly Reilly (Flight) are the major players for the new go-around, but the most left-field casting choice was that of Vince Vaughn as a California crime-lord in danger of losing his empire. Many were perplexed, others were intrigued, but what is true is that the material on offer here is so strong that the role could change Vaughn’s career from here on out.

Fifty Shades Of Grey – The Review

12 February 2015 11:01 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Some of the steamiest sex scenes in the history of cinema are often just that – a wild scene that takes you to an exotic place in that moment. A memorable sex scene though will have a lasting effect on the viewer not just because of the sensual imagery but because the characters and their journey are just as memorable. Take for example the movie Indecent Proposal. You only remember the sex on the kitchen floor or in the money-covered bed in Vegas because the performances by Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson are so intense. In many ways that is part of the reason why Hollywood sex scenes are often more memorable than just pornography that you can find online. Part of it has to do with our cultural desire to see celebrities exposed; to see them at their most vulnerable. But the other part has to do with “exaggerated sex” vs. »

Vince Vaughn Says No Pressure On True Detective Season 2, Will Contain A “Very Different” Story

12 February 2015 10:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With filming well underway in Los Angeles, we’re learning more and more about True Detective season two with each day that passes. Just yesterday, we caught a glimpse of some of the newcomers that will take point in the sophomore run, including Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn, and it was the latter actor that revealed how the second season will differentiate itself from what has come before.

Speaking to Playboy, he touched upon pre-existing expectations, the prestige of series creator Nic Pizzolatto and season two’s innate tonal shift.

“[Creator] Nic Pizzolatto is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories,” Vaughn says. “I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season. This one’s very different, though. It’s a totally different story, with its own characters. The thing that’s consistent is the richness of the »

Vince Vaughn Says ‘True Detective’ Season 2 is ‘Very Different’

Now that “True Detective” has set its cast for season two (Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly), the stars are finally starting to open up about the show’s hotly anticipated return.

In an interview with Playboy, Vaughn admits that he’s not feeling particularly pressured by the prospect of following Woody Harrelson’s and Matthew McConaughey’s acclaimed performances. “[Creator] Nic Pizzolatto is such a great writer, and so much of this is driven by his stories,” Vaughn says. “I thought Woody and Matthew did an exceptional job with the first season. This one’s very different, though. It’s a totally different story, with its own characters. The thing that’s consistent is the richness of the characters and the quality of the material.”

The season’s new setting has a lot to do with the difference in tone, according to Vaughn. “That was Louisiana. »

Rachel McAdams And Colin Farrell Feature In First On-Set Photos From True Detective Season 2

10 February 2015 9:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it arrived unassumingly on the small screen this time last year, HBO’s True Detective proved to be an instant hit due to its mix of compelling characters and a masterful sense of suspense. It rose above its other contemporaries as a police drama with real clout behind it, but with season two slated to go the anthology route and reset the entire set-up, fans are curious about how the series will continue.

Whatever the outcome in front of the camera, today we’ve been given a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of True Detective season two, which sees Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch assume the leading roles in lieu of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.

Plot details are, as you’d imagine, scarce on the ground at this early stage, but that hasn’t stopped HBO from releasing character descriptions for each of the aforementioned stars. »

Arguably TV’s finest new original show of 2014, True Detective has gained many admirers since its critically-acclaimed debut last year.

In the images, we can see stars Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch in action on the streets of California, in what looks to be a shootout scene…

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Never Knew About True Detective

9 February 2015 2:51 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

It’s one of the biggest and best hits ever to come to HBO, a bona fide sensation with audiences on release, and one of the most talked-about shows in recent memory – and it’s still only one season in. True Detective, the anthology detective drama from Nic Pizzolatto about the dark and mysterious goings-on underneath the sunlit facade of contemporary America, is talking-point television from probably the USA’s best channel, and it’s quite probably one of the finest the network’s ever aired.

Starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as detectives Martin Hart and Rustin Cohle, season one of True Detective took place over 17 years in rural Louisiana, and began with the ritual murder of a prostitute. So far, so American cop show – except True Detective slowly revealed itself as something much deeper and darker, a crime drama infused with horror and with mythical sensibilities, this was something familiar luring you, »
