1 October 2015 6:21 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Cookie’s big mouth has gotten her into more than a few scrapes on Empire, but now her words are coming back to bite her outside of the Fox smash.

Empire co-creator Lee Daniels took to Instagram on Thursday to address a comment Cookie made about Jennifer Lopez during Wednesday’s episode.

'Spider-Man' Spinoffs Still Possible, But Only After Reboot

1 October 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, a rumor surfaced that Sony Pictures and Marvel may be developing a new movie based on the Spider-Gwen comics, after Marvel's Ike Perlmutter recently green-lit a new solo comic series for the character. We never heard anything concrete about this Spider-Gwen spinoff, but earlier this week, a new fan-made trailer started making the rounds, stoking interest in the character getting her own solo adventure. During a Q&A to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron, producers Kevin Feige and Jeremy Latcham revealed they hadn't yet seen the trailer, but they both thought the comic book version of Spider-Gwen was "cool."

The Spider-Gwen trailer that surfaced this week featured footage from The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, along with Julianne Cancalosi portraying Spider-Gwen in scenes where she's wearing the masked costume. Even if a Spider-Gwen movie does happen, it likely won't be with Emma Stone, »

Empire Recap: Get Rich or Try Dynasty

30 September 2015 6:57 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Like the wide white lapels of Cookie’s Chanel-plaid jumpsuit, it’s the “Are you kidding me?” details that make Empire so ridiculously delicious.

A hard-charging prosecutor shows up to court with a La Perla bra pushing her cleavage higher than a Patti Labelle glory note. A guy named Thirsty (!) — with a law degree from the University of Guam (!!) — lands a job defending one of the richest and most powerful men in music. And not even Fox’s own highly paid American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez is safe from the vicious tongue of the Lyon family matriarch.

Top 5 TV: The Return of 'Empire'

28 September 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The big topic of conversation among TV fanatics this past week? The overall lousiness of the network's new fall shows. After a summer filled with UnREAL, Mr. Robot, Show Me a Hero, and The Carmichael Show — not to mention the soon-departing Fear the Walking Dead, which aired its best episode yet — it was damned dispiriting to have to slog through the likes of Life in Pieces, Blindspot, and Rosewood. Where's the panache? Where are the series with something to say?

Sandler to Have Biggest Opening Weekend of His Career with 'Hotel Transylvania 2'? Think Again.

26 September 2015 9:54 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Hotel Transylvania 2.' 'Hotel Transylvania 2' far surpasses expectations at domestic box office: Adam Sandler a hit when heard but not seen Adam Sandler has been having his share of domestic box office flops lately. Chris Columbus' Pixels, which opened in late July to scathing reviews and indifferent audiences, was the latest one: a reported $88 million production (plus marketing and distribution expenses) that earned $76.67 million in the U.S. and Canada (plus an estimated $145.1 million elsewhere). But now comes the Sony Pictures release Hotel Transylvania 2, the concisely titled sequel to the late Sept. 2012 hit Hotel Transylvania. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the $80-85 million-budgeted animated feature should open around $48 million from 3,754 theaters according to early weekend box office estimates found at The report adds that some “rival studio box office analysts” believe Hotel Transylvania 2 may actually pass the $50 million mark. On Friday, Sept. 25, '15, it collected a better than expected (estimated) $13.5 million. »

'Empire' Draws 16 Million Viewers for Season Two Premiere

24 September 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Empire's Season Two premiere was a shocking and insane television spectacle, and its ratings were just as massive as the show itself. On Wednesday night, 16 million people tuned in to the show's highly anticipated return, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new episode not only beat every other TV show that aired last night with its numbers, but it also outperformed everything that aired this week, excluding football. The Season Two premiere garnered a 6.5 rating among adults 18-49, and the episode was only outdone by the Season One finale.

Ratings: Empire Returns Very Strong, Just Shy of Record Numbers

24 September 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The Lyons are still king. In a big way.

Fox’s Empire opened Season 2 on Wednesday night with 16.2 million total viewers and a 6.7 rating (per finals), dipping just 8 percent and two tenths from the second hour of its record-setting freshman finale (17.6 mil/6.9).

Versus its series debut, for those who may wonder, Empire was up 64 and 76 percent — the largest Season 1/Season 2 leap in 10 years, since House.

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season two premiere of Empire, "The Devils Are Here."] Not so fast, Cookie. The season two premiere of Empire wasted no time diving right back into the heated dealings of the Lyon family. Although Lucious (Terrence Howard) remained behind bars, he still pulled a fast one on his ex-wife. After Cookie brought in investor Mimi Whiteman (Marisa Tomei) to help her and her boys get a controlling share of Empire and subsequently remove Lucious as CEO, Jamal (Jussie Smollett) went behind Cookie's back and convinced Mimi to invest with him and Lucious

Empire Season Two Premiere Recap: Double-Crossing Divas

23 September 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you told me yesterday, “Hey, Empire is gonna add Predatory Lesbian Schemer Oscar Winner Marisa Tomei to this season,” I would have said “If that’s real, I’ll eat my hat.” I’m sitting here with half a Cubs baseball cap in my mouth, praising the brilliance of Predatory Lesbian Schemer Oscar Winner Marisa Tomei. The second she showed up in a high-end honky tonk Florence and the Machine pantsuit, I thought we were in for a thrill ride. Okay. This episode wasn’t so much of a thrill ride as expert table-setting and reminders of the damage these people are capable of doing. A lot of the episode’s immediate threats of violence were handled so swiftly that tension didn’t get a chance to really seep into our bones.

Empire Season 2 Premiere: Ep Talks 'Gorilla Suit' Moment, Cookie/Jamal Rift, Marisa Tomei's Lesbian Tycoon

23 September 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It’s impossible to distill Empire‘s Season 2 premiere down to a single line of dialogue, but under threat of a Frank Gathers dinner invite (more on that in a second), we’d go with Lucious Lyon’s cold, calculated “Who is that lesbian bitch?”

In other words, Wednesday’s explosive hour — which featured a decapitated head in a box, a boardroom scene that would make Alexis Carrington-Colby gasp and a ferocious booty-shake from Boo-Boo Kitty herself — is evidence that Fox’s critical and ratings juggernaut is on course not just to maintain the pace of its heady freshman season, »

Does Fox's Rosewood Have a Pulse?

Up front, let’s acknowledge how fantastic it is to see Morris Chestnut fronting a series.

The Spider-Man reboot will be "a coming-of-age high-school movie", mercifully not an origin story

23 September 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Good news web-heads! It's been confirmed Marvel's upcoming Spider-Man reboot is not going to tell Peter Parker's origin for a third time.

While Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige promised last year that his Spider-Man movie would pick-up with the webslinger already under the cowl, little else has been known about the plot until now.

In a recent chat with Empire , Spider-Man director Jon Watts said that his film can present a different take on Peter Parker since cinema-goers have already seen his origin story twice.

"There are only so many times you can kill Uncle Ben," the filmmaker joked, in reference to a key moment in Spider-Man's origin.

Watts further explained: "I love the idea of making a coming-of-age high-school movie. We're really going to see Peter Parker in high school and get deeper into that side of it. He's just 15 now.

"[Tom Holland] was pretty perfect. He's very athletic. He can actually do a backflip! »

'Spider-Man' Spinoff 'Sinister Six' May Happen at Marvel

23 September 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the reasons fans hated The Amazing Spider-Man 2 so much is that it spent nearly all it's running time trying to set up the massive super villain team-up movie The Sinister Six. It didn't have time to concentrate on Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy. The spinoff movie was being prepped for a 2016 release date, with Drew Goddard set to write and direct the film. But when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to live up to both box office and fan expectation, Sony put all of it's Spider-Man inspired films on hold. In stepped Marvel. And the rest is history. The slate was wiped clean, there would be no The Amazing Spider-Man 3, with Marvel and Sony instead collaborating on a Spider-Man reboot for 2017. Also scrapped was The Sinister Six. But Drew Goddard claims the movie is not dead yet.

The Sinister Six is not beholden to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, even though »
