Glee is gearing up for what it hopes will be an exciting winter run, and we've got an early look at how the show will return on January 17. Namely:
With a Real Housewife of Atlanta and an homage to an all-time classic musical.
Sam, of course, will join the squad in order to impress Mercedes. It looks like he'll also make like Grease's Danny Zuko with the same goal in mind, as two other photos from the episode "Yes/No" depict Sam as this iconic John Travolta character and his crush as Olivia Newton John's Sandy.
Visit our Glee photo gallery to see this pair recreate the duet "Summer Lovin" now. »

As if they didn't have enough to worry about, young mothers are made to stand and deliver by film-makers desperate to push social themes. Clip joint practices its breathing with film's standout teenage pregnancy scenes
In the Twilight finale, Bella Swan's just 18 when she gives birth to her little monster (which still doesn't excuse the fact that she names it Renesmee). In the hands of Mormon author Stephenie Meyer, getting knocked up by a vampire before you can legally drink is all part of the circle of life – an excuse to quit school and devote yourself full-time to gazing into your husband's eyes. But for most writers it's a chance to mark out a character as tough, to illustrate wasted opportunities or to highlight the risks of an unchaperoned date.
Here are my pick of film's best teen pregnancy scenes:

Actress Olivia Newton-john has shelved plans to write an autobiography as she wants to keep certain aspects of her life private.
The Grease star has been busy jotting notes for a tell-all tome, but she has now decided against creating a book.
She tells Britain's The Sun, "I have written things down for an autobiography, but have scrapped it.
"I've decided that, living in the public eye, there's so little of my life that has been mine over the years. I want to keep what is left to myself." »

Dallas is about to go toe-to-manicured toe with Robin Givens!
EW has learned exclusively that Givens is slated to appear in a March episode of the ABC freshman comedy Suburgatory as Tulsa, a longtime rival of Dallas (Cheryl Hines) from her sorority days, who back in the day made it her mission to wrong Dallas at every given opportunity — whether that meant stealing her hot older boyfriend or her Olivia Newton-John leg warmers. That bitch!
Described as a “wolf in zebra print clothing,” Tulsa is said to be the only person Dallas has ever “said unkind words to without regrets. »

Following the launch of our Razzie prediction center, the awards' founder John Wilson sat down with us to dish this year's contenders. Among the Worst Picture competitors we discussed were "Breaking Dawn: Part 1," "Transformers Dark of the Moon," "Jack and Jill" and "Bucky Larson." Back in 1980, John was inspired to create the Razzies -- short for the Golden Raspberry Awards -- following a double feature of the Village People biopic "Can't Stop the Music" and the Olivia Newton-John musical "Xanadu." He has guided Razzie voters over the last thirty years in "honoring" the worst in cinema. The group's notorious winners for Worst Picture include "Showgirls" (1995), "Battlefield Earth" (2000), and "Gigli" (2003). Along with Worst Picture, the Razzies also recognize the worst in acting, writing, and directing. Several former Razzie " »
The "Breaking Dawn Part I" madness has begun. The movie premiered in Rome on Sunday (Oct. 30) and while most of the cast was not on hand, stars Nikki Reed and Jackson Rathbone were there to not only walk the red carpet, but also participate in a Q&A session with the media and fans.

Other films being screened at the festival include Michelle Williams' "My Week With Marilyn"; "Catching Hell," the story of Steve Bartman and the Chicago Cubs; "A Few Best Men," starring Xavier Samuel and Olivia Newton-John; and "Too Big to Fail," the chronicle of the 2008 financial crisis.
"Breaking Dawn's" United States premiere will take place Monday, Nov. »
Mia Wasikowska's Restless was the first film to be shown at Canberra Film Festival last night. The 12-day event, which features 58 films from 26 countries, will also screen movies such as Olivia Newton-John's cult film Xanadu and Rob Nugent's documentary Memoirs of a Plague. Festival director Simon Weaving told The ABC: "It's a lovely sized festival, so we can really pick the best films in the world. "[Restless is] a love story about a terminally ill girl, but it is one of those wonderfully redemptive films. A gorgeous performance from Mia. Henry Hopper is playing opposite her, Dennis Hopper's son." Weaving had previously said that it was also a "personal goal" of his to showcase some African (more) »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? Ecstasy Trailers One of the things about trailers is that they come in many iterations and, for a single film, you can sometimes have an »

Even in a sleepy, somewhat predictable episode of Project Runway, you can still find zany little surprises: Heidi Klum nearly absconding with one contestant’s particularly snazzy garment. Tim Gunn excitedly dropping the word “effing” (!) into a critique. Joshua displaying all the charm of a rabid badger cornered in the back of a dank, mildewy cave.
Oh, wait. That’s pretty much become Joshua’s modus operandi over the last several weeks, hasn’t it? The way that dude hisses and foams at the mouth during his confessionals, I’m always half-expecting Animal Control to show up with a pole, »

It's the final four and everyone is all smiles. In "Finale (Part One)" everyone is sent home to design their collections. Only three will make it to the Fashion Week runway. They've got five weeks to make 10 looks and everyone gets a very special visit from Tim Gunn. Who wouldn't want that?
Tim wanders down to White Plains, Maryland to visit Kimberly. The pictures make it look like rural farm country but Kim grew up in Brooklyn. Pre-gentrified Brooklyn, she points out, and it's the inspiration for her collection. The Urban girl transformed.
If fashion sense is confidence in your look, Kimberly has it.
Anya's in Maraval, Trinidad. Wow, it's gorgeous. Tim meanders along the sea in his suit at this tropical location. He looks like a well dressed fish out of water.
Tobago, Trinidad's sister island, is Anya's inspiration. Anya has her fabric but no actual garments made. She only has two weeks left! »

The word ‘uninspired’ is an easy shortcut to communicate an impression of unpleasant mediocrity, and so it gets thrown around a lot. It is also the perfect term for The Thing, the new film by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. that acts as a prequel to John Carpenter’s 1982 film of the same name. Uninspired, right off the bat: no one could even bother to tack a subtitle onto this movie, much less an entirely new name. The Thing ‘11 is slavishly devoted to the ‘82 effort, which has evolved from box-office flop to a revered horror icon. Ostensibly a prequel, this film is so heavily attached to the old, like a pre-surgery Belial , that I’m not sure there was ever a chance it could grow a personality of its own. It appropriates some of Ennio Morricone’s score for the ‘82, noticeably the low bass throb of the original main theme , but »

I went to the most awesome birthday party this past weekend -- it was literally a blast from the past! My friend Joe turned 40 and celebrated with a "Xanadu" themed "Disco Roller Party"- just the sound of that is pretty fab, right?
It all started with the invites, which included a DVD of the Olivia Newton-John cult classic "Xanadu," to inspire us for costume ideas. I admit- I did not do too well in the costume department. I could not think of anything to wear and just tried to be festive with a sparkly Dvf jacket. I wish ...

Chloe Lattanzi has revealed that she never wanted to be famous. The 25-year-old Australian singer - who is the daughter of Grease actress Olivia Newton-John - said that she always craved privacy when she was young but could not be a "normal" child because of her mother's fame. Lattanzi told Ok! magazine: "I felt I had no privacy. I wanted to be a normal young kid and fame was not something I asked for - I was born into it. I never craved attention. I was paid attention to since I was born. I had no choice. "Nothing was private for me and this still p*sses me off. I'm just trying to have my own identity, which I think is perfectly normal. I'm sure many would do the same to try to carve out their own identity." Lattanzi continued: "All kids cause their parents angst when growing (more) »

Chloe Lattanzi has revealed that she is still planning on marrying her fiancé James Driskill. The Australian singer, whose mother is Grease star Olivia Newton-John, was believed to have called the wedding off after discovering that Driskill was still married and living with his first wife, but has now insisted that she didn't feel "deceived" by him. Lattanzi told Ok! magazine: "The engagement is so on. We have had to postpone [the wedding] until [his] divorce comes through. I love him and [the scandal] wasn't enough to throw out a whole life together. [There's] no trust lost at all, since I was not deceived. My love goes beyond words or explanation." Driskill added: "Chloe understood right off the bat that it was not deliberate and that she had no reason to doubt my love for her. I told Chloe that I still lived with (more) »

Given the ease with which family fare always tops the charts whether animated or live action -- this time the story of a dolphin with a prosthetic tale (?) flipper (?) fin (?) I don't know these terms -- you'd think taking the family to the movies didn't cost as much as people always claim it costs when they complain about how much it costs (whew): parking, food, multiple tickets.
Also: Dolphins are cute and all but I'm only seeing Dolphin Tale if you can promise me that it contains a musical sequence in which Olivia Newton-John reprises her treacly "Promise (The Dolphin Song)" from the 80s.
With Morgan Freeman on back-up.
Anyway, don't mind me. I'm just bitter because I'd prefer it if adults went to movies for adults in droves. That way TV wouldn't be able to hog all the entertainment intended for adults. (Moneyball is doing well but people »

Happy 27th Birthday to Thore Schölermann, and Happy 63rd Birthday to Olivia Newton-John. Time to name your top five Olivia songs! Here are mine (which was tough, because she's my fourth all-time favorite singer): 5. "Tied Up," 4. "A Little More Love," 3. "Twist of Fate," 2. "Suddenly," and my #1 is a song that I will forever champion in the face of universal derision, "Soul Kiss". Out Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels has been tasked to bring Valley of the Dolls back to TV. I'm going to need some time to absorb this. Justin Timberlake will portray late Casablanca Records co-founder Neil Bogart (who helped launch Donna Summer and The Village People) in the big-screen bio-pic Spinning Gold. I'm going to need some time to absorb this. Oxygen has officially announced that they have started the casting process for Season Two of The Glee Project, beginning with a multi-city »
