“Funny how secrets travel,” David Bowie croons as the music thumps. The camera zooms down a dark desolate highway, illuminated only by the twin beams of a speeding car’s headlights. This is the beginning of David Lynch’s Lost Highway, and it sets the mood for the chaos to come.
Lynch rose to auteur status with unflinchingly distinct films crafted with a fetishistic fever. They were challenging and downright weird films that made unsuspecting audiences uncomfortable while simultaneously earning the director acclaim. They were the types of films that seemed to exist within their own self-contained universes where the past and present would collide, often violently. As much as Lynch became a cult icon in America, his fame here couldn’t hold a candle to the praise he gathered overseas–especially in France. The French loved Lynch, and in the late 1990s, thanks to French financing, Lynch was able to direct Lost Highway, »

With "Justified" over (here's my series finale review), I got on the phone with showrunner Graham Yost to discuss why certain characters lived, others died, and which characters (Mags? Quarles?) he might have brought back under different circumstances, all coming up just as soon as I come back here with a jackhammer... I want to start with the hat, because I know it was one of the few significant creative disagreements you ever had with Elmore (Leonard). At what point did you decide you wanted Raylan to end the series wearing the smaller Stetson that met with his approval? Graham Yost: Pretty early on in the season, we knew we wanted to create a character who really modeled himself after Raylan to one degree or another, and he would get a hat, and Raylan would end up with the bad guy's hat. It's still not a perfect match for what Elmore wanted, »

Channel 5 has declined to comment on rumours that this summer's Celebrity Big Brother series will have a 'UK versus USA' theme.
CBB bosses want Us stars to compete against their UK counterparts in two opposing teams following the controversy Perez Hilton caused in the most recently aired series, according to The Sun.
Showbiz blogger Hilton was accused by fellow housemates of forcing Us singer Alexander O'Neal to quit the show following antagonistic and confrontational behaviour.
He then received two warnings from Big Brother for using inappropriate language towards Calum Best.
Is this heaven? Nope, it’s Opening Week.

If you never watched Entourage when it was on t.v., this trailer for its big screen outing may put you off, steeped as it is in the show's own lore, but for fans of the show, they will be beyond excited for the return of actor Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his tight knit group of friends and hangers on as they encounter problem upon problem as they try and get Chase's latest movie made. The humour is spot on what people remember form t.v., and the show worked best when it focused on the drama that goes hand in hand when dealing with the craziness of the Hollywood studio system, so of course that's where this new trailer excels at piquing your interest, as do the army of guest stars, from a blink and you'll miss it appearance from Gary Busey (following his wonderfully weird guest turn »

Jimmy Fallon has welcomed a ton of guests to the "Ew!" couch over the years, and the latest is Ariana Grande. She made a surprisingly funny appearance as Alexa Armstrong, one of Sara's best friends. They practice singing and have an impromptu visit from Gary, Sara's stepdad, and Alexa shocks Sara by claiming that Richard Dreyfuss isn't "ew!" They definitely crack up, and it's reminiscent of Fallon's days on Saturday Night Live. Check it out, and if you think this is funny, watch her Celine Dion impression and wait until we get a better look at Grande's acting chops when Scream Queens hits the small screen this Fall! »
Divisive comic Andrew Dice Clay is determined to revive his career, and he may have finally secured a path to glory. The Las Vegas stand-up is set to star in a six-episode, half-hour series for Showtime that Variety claims will use Clay’s “rags-to-riches-to-rags trajectory” as “fodder” for the show.
A semi-autobiographical scripted series – there’s an oxymoron – Clay will shoot this summer in Vegas and follow the once-famous superstar as he tries to maintain a family life whilst rebuilding his failing career.
The show was created by writer Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II) and Fox 21 TV Studios, with Fox execs apparently funding a presentation for Showtime out of their own pockets. Both Clay and Armstrong will executive produce the series along with Daybreakers‘ duo Sean and Bryan Furst, Richard Shepard and Bruce Rubenstein.

Andrew Dice Clay’s career comeback bid is about to get a boost with Showtime handing the comedian a six-episode order for the semi-autobiographical series “Dice,” targeted to air in 2016.
The scripted series will revolve around Clay’s life in Las Vegas as he tries to reclaim his former stature as a standup comedian while juggling obligations to his family, his ex-wife and former finance. Series hails from writer Scot Armstrong (“The Hangover II”) and Fox 21 TV Studios. Clay, Armstrong, Sean Furst, Bryan Furst, Richard Shepard and Bruce Rubenstein are exec producers.
The half-hour single-camera series is set to begin filming in Las Vegas later this year. Clay is also toplining the Showtime comedy special, “Andrew Dice Clay Presents the Blue Show,” set to bow April 25.
“Love him or hate him, Dice is a true original, and Dice is always funny,” said Gary Levine, Showtime’s exec VP of original programming. »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.
John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. He might not be known as being the most heavyweight of actors but you have to admit the man knows how to make an entertaining movie, and he’s not bad to look at. Even if everything else about the film is terrible or ridiculously over the top, Keanu is always awesome – Jonnhy Mnemonic and Chain Reaction would be nothing without him.
Every Friday between now and the release of John Wick on 10th April, »

Wolfcop, the highly entertaining new horror comedy from filmmaker Lowell Dean, has just slashed its way on to DVD – so I figured this was the perfect time to highlight some of the other great lycanthrope films out there. If you’re ready to bark at the moon, or just like finding opportunities to drop the word “lycanthropy” into casual conversation, then these films are guaranteed to please. Silver Bullet Corey Haim and Gary Busey headline this 1985 feature, which was based on a Stephen King novella titled Cycle of the Werewolf. The small town of Tarker’s Mills has a murderer walking amongst them in King’s tale, but the killer isn’t a man – it’s a vicious werewolf with a taste for people. Haim plays a paraplegic...

Rajskub will play Susie, the self-serving and opportunistic twin sister of Grunberg’s Gary. »
In the pantheon of talking animal movies, The Voices is a decided outcast. Animals aren’t the only unusual talkers here either – there are also a couple chatty, severed heads in the fridge. Okay, The Voices is an outcast in every imaginable way. From anything. The Voices is its own genre. Somewhere between a dream movie, a slasher, a dark comedy, a goofy rom-com, and by ending something Really unexpected, is where it lies directly in the center. But that’s the charm of the film in that by playing with these different tones and genre tropes it’s wildly unpredictable and superbly entertaining. Prepare yourself.

Fox Television Group chairman and CEOs, Gary Newman and Dana Walden said of the choice: "The moment the Emmy Awards' host was brought up, we said it had to be Andy.

Samberg weighed in in a statement, saying: "Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers! Like, in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you're not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. »

Emmy Award-winning writer, actor and comedian Andy Samberg will host the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards airing Live coast-to-coast from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 20 (8:00-11:00 Pm Et live/5:00-8:00 Pm Pt live) on Fox. Samberg stars as "Det. Jake Peralta" on the award-winning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Here's what Bruce Rosenblum, chairman and CEO of the Television Academy, had to say in a statement.
"It's wonderfully fitting that we have Andy Samberg, an Emmy Award winner himself, as our host for this year's Primetime Emmy Awards. Andy has excelled in all aspects of the television universe, both from behind and in front of the camera. His humor, insights and charisma will be an exciting addition to our annual celebration of television's best and brightest."
Fox, the only network without a late-night presence to pimp in the telecast, has tapped one of its primetime regulars to host the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 20, 2015. The network announced on Thursday (March 12) that "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Andy Samberg will host the 2015 Emmy Awards. While the other networks have often used the Emmys telecast to position late-night favorites like Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien for primetime audiences, Fox has given the gig to Jane Lynch and Ryan Seacrest in recent years. Samberg seems excited, at least insofar as one can convey excitement in a press release. "Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers!," Samberg blurbs. "Like, in general you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you’re not an Emmy viewer, »

The world turned upside down on Wednesday with Madonna's first-ever appearance on "The Howard Stern Show," and while it wasn't the "gay Super Bowl," as Bravo host Andy Cohen termed it (maybe a tad hyperbolic there), it was pretty surreal to hear the Queen on Pop in conversation with the King of All Media after so many years (decades, really) of seemingly mutual distaste. So how did it go? I'm a little mixed, to be honest. While Howard was typically insightful as an interviewer, Madonna never really let her guard down enough to show a side of herself we hadn't previously seen. Still, there were good moments. Here are ten highlights from the epic 90-minute sitdown, which included discussions of Madonna's childhood, her early New York years, past relationships with luminaries like Sean Penn and Warren Beatty, and her infamous fall at this year's Brit Awards. 1.
