Did the 2015 movie get you excited for a re-watch [...] »
There comes a time to turn away from the horrors of the world and retreat underneath the soft, comforting duvet of nostalgia. That time is Friday. That metaphorical duvet is below.
Here are fifty of the best kids’ TV theme songs (spread over two pages and in arbitrary order) of the 1980s. Some, like Alan Hawkshaw’s distinctive Grange Hill intro, are unarguable classics of the era, while others, like Mike Harding's Count Duckula, only started in the late-eighties and spent the rest of their run in the next decade.
Obviously, there being only 50 on this list, we may have missed out your favourite (deliberately or otherwise). Let us know if so, but remember that links may take a while to appear in the comments thread because »
Probably the year’s most controversial film is heading to the home video markets (or DVD, VOD and on Blu-Ray as we call it theses days) on September 29th, and we have the full details for the release of the Entourage movie.
Our review of the Entourage movie here.
Movie star Vincent Chase (Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Connolly), Turtle (Ferrara) and Johnny (Dillon), are back… and back in business with super-agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Piven). Some of their ambitions have changed, but the bond between them remains strong as they navigate the capricious and often cutthroat world of Hollywood with hilarious antics.
Entourage movie DVD Blu-Ray details below.

Mr Selfridge has added cast for the fourth season, which is expected to return next year.

New cast members include Sacha Dhawan (Line Of Duty), Lottie Tolhurst and Mimi Ndiweni (Cinderella). Joining them are Emma Hamilton (The Tudors) and Zoe… »
In a move that leant to his success in eighties teen pics (more on those later), one of the defining moments of John Cusack’s career happened before he got started, where he dropped out of university, said goodbye to roomie Jeremy Piven and, to quote the man, utilised that “fire in his belly” to forge a career in Hollywood.
A cameo in Sixteen Candles put the young talent on Rob Reiner’s radar, giving Cusack the chance to feature in three of the director’s most endearing pictures, in turn making him the go to guy in movieland when you required a pretty face with a smart mouth.
So, as the eighties segued into the nineties and indie cinema darted out of the paddocks courtesy of Miramax, Sundance and the postmodern auteur, Cusack became the pretty face of some of the decade’s most memorable features.

Debra Messing isn't afraid to kiss and tell — especially if the kiss is bad! During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live earlier this week, the Smash alum dished on one of her least-favorite former costars: Jeremy Piven, who apparently got a little overzealous during their makeout scene on Will & Grace back in 2000. Asked by a caller to name the best and worst guest stars on the sitcom, Messing, 46, was quick to single out Harry Connick, Jr. as her favorite. (The crooner played [...] »

During our recent webcam chat (watch below), three-time Emmy champ Jeremy Piven ("Entourage") reflected on having played the title character in the PBS period drama “Mr. Selfridge” for three seasons. He readily admits, “I feel like I’m just hitting my stride now." And, he continues, "I’ve learnt you’re never too old to learn so I’m learning and hopefully growing and getting better at what I’m doing.” -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders In the recently concluded third season, Harry Selfridge dealt with the death of his wife by working even harder at his department store.

Some casting news I previously missed that you should know about... - First, Teyonah Parris ("Dear White People," "Mad Men," "Survivor's Remorse") has joined the cast of Spike Lee’s much-discussed drama (and it hasn't even been made yet) "Chiraq," joining a cast that includes Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Hudson, John Cusack, Jeremy Piven and Wesley Snipes to name a few. Set against the backdrop of Chicago’s gun violence, the film is a modern spin on the Greek comedy "Lysistrata" - in short, the women of Greece refused to have sex with their husbands, all in an effort to bring an end to the Peloponnesian War, via the signing »

Directed by Doug Ellin.
Movie star Vincent Chase, together with his boys Eric, Turtle, and Johnny, are back – and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold on a risky project that will serve as Vince’s directorial debut.
HBO’s Entourage, a show about the glitz, glamour and dark underbelly of Hollywood, half inspired by co-developer Mark Wahlberg’s real early life in tinsel town, is something of an acquired taste. Therefore I should really preface this by saying how big of a fan I am. It would be deceptive not to. And by big, I mean massive. If fans were movie stars, I’d be Vincent Chase. Perhaps (okay, undoubtedly) that’s the reason I enjoyed this film so much; certainly, any film »

Jeremy Piven is currently all over the big screen, from starring as the infamous Ari Gold in the “Entourage” movie to currently filming the highly-critiqued Spike Lee movie, “Chiraq.” However, Piven has also been busy filming the PBS drama, “Mr. Selfridge,” for three seasons. The show follows the real-life story of the flamboyant and visionary American founder (played by Piven) of London’s famous department store, Selfridge’s. “Mr. Selfridge” also stars Ron Cook, Amy Beth Hayes, Tom Goodman-Hill, Amanda Abbington, and Samuel West. In March, U.K. network ITV announced that the show was renewed for a fourth season, »

Director: Doug Ellin; Screenwriter: Doug Ellin, Rob Weiss; Starring: Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, Jeremy Piven, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Billy Bob Thornton, Haley Joel Osment; Running time: 104 mins; Certificate: 15
An entertaining and undemanding watch on the small screen, HBO's Entourage lifted the lid on the glitz and glamour of Hollywood to show what it might be like to live the life of a movie A-lister. Heavy on star cameos and bro banter, the show whizzed by in 30-minute instalments and swiftly built up a cult following.
There was something hugely appealing about living vicariously through fast-rising star Vincent Chase and his boys from Queens. That's not to mention Jeremy Piven's agent Ari Gold, whose unwavering loyalty to Vince was matched only by his explosive temper.
An Entourage film has been long in the works, though its arrival long after the show's creative and pop cultural peak can't »
Still eschewing irony, satire or self-awareness, TV’s bros-before-hos celebration of young guys living the celeb dream reaches the big screen
Producer Mark Wahlberg’s Hollywood un-satire Entourage ran for 96 episodes on TV from 2004 to 2011; now he has brought it to the big screen. It’s another bros-before-hos celebration of young guys living the celeb dream – riding smugly around La together in that bromantic four-seater convertible. There are unfunny and unsatirical star cameos, including one from our own Piers Morgan. As ever, where you might expect irony and biting comment, there is uncritical adoration. Super-hot young actor Vince (Adrian Grenier) is super-hotter than ever; he has just blown off his young wife after a few days of marriage and the status quo reasserts itself. He is always accompanied by his boys, his entourage. Lovable deadbeat brother Johnny “Drama” (Kevin Dillon) is still a failing actor – though he’s also supposed to be seriously good. »

It’s quite an interesting week for horror (and non-horror), with everyone from Scream Factory and Artsploitation to even Sony and Alchemy putting out some quirky titles. If you’ve got a fever for some creature features, torturous horror, or even some dry and interesting comedy, then we’ve got ya covered. Hell, even Joe Dante has a new one out on VOD this week.
We thought we’d take a look at a few that stood out to us, and give you fright fanatics the rundown on why these releases might be worth your time (and money). Read on!
Scream Factory has one odd double feature with this one. Whether you’re into killer octopi or one weird looking reptilian villain, both Tentacles and Reptilicus each have your share of cheese lined up for mass consumption.

Entourage review: Basically a higher-budgeted, extended version of the hit HBO show. Far too many gratuitous cameos, though it’s hard to resist its charm on the big-screen which will more than delight die-hard fans of the original series.
Read our full Entourage review below.
Director: Doug Ellin
Run Time: 104 minutes.
Synopsis: While hanging with pals Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), movie star Vince Chase (Adrian Grenier) gets a phone call from Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven), his former agent, who now runs a major studio. Ari offers Vince the leading role in his first production, but the actor insists on also directing the film. Things get out of hand when the $100 million flick goes over budget, leaving Ari, Vince and the boys at the mercy of the cutthroat world of Hollywood. »

After wrapping up on HBO four years ago, Entourage is back in business on the big screen with Vincent Chase stepping behind the camera to make his directorial debut.
A runaway budget means it's up to agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold to salvage the blockbuster and stop a Heaven's Gate-style Hollywood disaster. Digital Spy sat down with Entourage stars Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and creator Doug Ellin to discuss the show's comeback.

Jon Cryer is one of the few actors in Emmy history to win both a supporting and lead actor statuette for the same role. The show that made that possible, “Two and a Half Men,” ended its 12-season run on CBS earlier this year.
After losing to Jeremy Piven three years in a row, he wasn’t nominated when you won the supporting actor Emmy in 2009. Was that a relief?
I did not take a sick satisfaction from that, no, I don’t know what you’re suggesting. You know what, I still had zero expectation that I would be next in line. It did not ring any particular bells that Jeremy was not there that particular year. Mostly you’re relieved to be invited to the party. I still didn’t think I had a shot until Kristin Chenoweth won, who was sitting right next to me. For some »
