If I Stay, based on the novel of the same name by Gayle Forman and starring Chloë Grace Moretz, proved a draw for young audiences. Its $6.8 million opening day put it ahead of Marvel’s latest blockbuster, which added an estimated $4.8 million to its domestic total of $239.1 million. But tracking suggests the lead for the Ya adaptation directed by R.J. Cutler may »

Entertainment Weekly: Okay, obviously we need to start with the Ice Bucket Challenge. How nervous were you about doing that on live television and how did it feel when Will Arnett dumped that water on you?
Julie Chen: I was sooooo excited to do this on live television. It’s the only way you can’t back out or run away….you must commit. I was adamant that the bucket had to be equal parts »

(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Thursday night's live eviction episode of “Big Brother.”) Julie Chen took the Als Ice Bucket Challenge live amid a wild night of departures and returns on “Big Brother.” She was challenged by CBS head honcho and her husband Les Moonves to take the challenge live on “Big Brother,” and so she wrapped the night by getting all wet. “The Millers” star Will Arnett was there to give her an assist by dumping the water.

I'm checking in on Thursday's (August 21) "Big Brother" after spending my afternoon and evening on the set of Fox's yet-to-shoot "Utopia," a new reality show that's exactly like "Big Brother" except for all of the ways it's completely different. "Utopia" isn't a competition and while people are sent home, they aren't "eliminations," per se. Also, nobody wins. Somebody will definitely win on "Big Brother." And somebody will definitely go home, or at least to the Jury House, with the catch being that according to Julie Chen, tonight's episode will also feature the return of a recently eliminated hamster. So it sounds like tonight's "Big Brother" will actually be a zero-sum game? Let's find out, after the break... 9:02 p.m. We pick up in the aftermath of Zach being put on the Block by Frankie and basically being told that he's doomed. "I'm down by a field goal. It might »

Big Brother, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
CBS’ reality staple has long been my annual guilty pleasure. While some may see it as nothing more than kitschy summer fodder — and, granted, it is — it’s also much more fun and clever than it’s ever given credit for.
Take, for example, Thursday’s live eviction show, which sent one houseguest packing and brought another evictee back into the game, all in the span of an hour. If you’re a Big Brother fan, you know episodes like these are enjoyable, intense and thoroughly entertaining. I wish I knew »
Billy on the Street’s Eichner—who first tweeted a photo of himself on set with Margo Martindale on Wednesday—will play Leon, the ex-husband of Sean Hayes’ new character Kip, who has had a long-standing crush on Nathan (Will Arnett). To make Leon jealous, Nathan will pose as Kip’s new lover in the season premiere.

This weekend, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez throw another punch in "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," the hard-boiled sequel starring Jessica Alba, Eva Green, Josh Brolin, and many more; HBO's "True Blood" wraps up its final season Sunday night after a seven-year run; the 31st MTV Video Music Awards airs live Sunday, with performances by Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift, and others; and Seth Meyers hosts the 66th annual Emmy Awards Monday night on NBC.
Also in theaters this weekend: "If I Stay" stars Chloe Grace Moretz as a talented young musician whose life changes in an instant after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide how to proceed with her drastically different life. "When the Game Stands Tall" tells the story of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur, who took De La Salle High School from obscurity to a record-shattering 151-game winning streak. »

Pete checks out Netflix animation Bojack Horseman, and finds a bold, hilariously dark comedy featuring a cast at the top of its game...
Over the last few years, Netflix has steadily gone from being a supplier who helps us binge on our favourite TV shows to a legitimate producer in its own right. Not content with merely reviving one of television’s wittiest sitcoms in the form of Arrested Development, they’ve gone on to create award-winning dramas such as House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black.
Bojack Horseman is Netflix’s first foray into animated comedy, and it follows a delusional faded sitcom star (the titular Horseman, who happens to be an anthropomorphised talking horse for reasons that are, happily, left unexplained) whose only companions are his agent and on-again-off-again girlfriend Princess Carolyn (herself a pink cat), his long-term layabout house guest Todd, his ghost-writer Diane, and Mr Peanutbutter, »
Films with great women’s roles aren’t always great films. Films with poor female representation aren’t necessarily bad films. But poorly written female roles will always be a problem for cinema so long as they continue to persist. The damsel in distress. Angel-whore. The token girl. Trophy wives. Mother, daughter, sister. The unconditional love interest. These are among the popular clichés most frequently applied to female characters as they’re written on the page. Some films are so desperate for conflict that they just keep going to the well without altering the mold. Have women not earned the right by now to play more villains, complicated lovers, a-holes, The Best Friends, soldiers, comic reliefs or leads? Can a woman be sexy in a film and still have a great role? Yes. Give her agency. Can a woman support other characters but still have a great role? Yes. Keep her vital. »

We’re over half way through the year now and the end of the summer is upon us, but rather than feeling down while those nights draw in, and the days become shorter, we thought we’d recap our favourite five funny movies of the year to cheer you up. So, get your chin up and take a look at our top five of 2014 so far.
5. The Muppets Most Wanted
It may not have done as well as its predecessor, but James Bobin’s hilarious Muppet movie sequel Muppets Most Wanted gave us a chuckle or ten when it was released in cinemas back in March. Now available on DVD and Blu-Ray, as well as digital download, the Ricky Gervais, Miss Piggy and Kermit starrer is definitely one to see if you’re a fan of our furry friends.

Good news, Netflix’s very funny looking original animated show BoJack Horseman featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie will appear on Netflix on Friday 22nd August just in time to binge watch over the bank holiday weekend.
From what I have seen so far it looks promising but then so did Hemlock Grove. Expect a full report next week. In related news, Netflix have announced a whole slate of stand-up comedy exclusive to its service after the success of the recent Aziz Ansari special. So the likes of Chelsea Handler, Jim Jefferies, Bill Cosby, Bill Burr and Chelsea Peretti will be adding stand up shows to streaming between now and December. I have only heard of a couple of these acts but there again one of the best things to do with an hour to spare is browse Netflix for its plentiful supply of stand-up »

Netflix has amassed a fine comic cast for this new animated series (right): not only does it star Will Arnett as a washed-up sitcom horse, but there are also turns from Communitys Alison Brie, Strangers With Candys Amy Sedaris and, in his first post-Breaking Bad TV role, Aaron Paul. It feels similar in tone to the adult animated comedies of the 90s, most notably the similarly anthropomorphic Duckman. Catch the series in full from Friday.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles heads into its second weekend a champion. It is already considered a box office hit, a sequel was announced last Sunday, and it's all smooth sailing from here. The fans have spoken, and they love the ensemble behind these four brothers from the sewer. As we prepare for Mikey, Raph, Donnie and Leo to dominate the next three days once again, we caught up with scene stealer Noel Fisher, who delivers some of the funniest lines in the movie.
Look deep into Michelangelo's eyes, and you will definitely see Noel Fisher hiding in there. The resemblance is actually uncanny. And the two share a similar sense of humor. As easy to talk to and free spirited as you'd imagine holding a conversation with Mikey might be like, Noel Fisher shared his experiences in contributing to this 30-year-old franchise phenomenon, which shows no signs of slowing down. »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is already a big hit at the domestic box office, but this action-packed reboot still has yet to open in several international territories.

Will Arnett's media footprint is about to expand considerably.

For Electric's first project, the company is in final negotiations to option Johanna Stein's How Not to Calm a Child on a Plane and Other Lessons in Parenting
