With low ratings, it looked very possible that New Girl would be cancelled by Fox last season but the network renewed it. Could it be renewed for a seventh season even though there are now more than enough episodes for syndication? Stay tuned.New Girl revolves around free-spirited educator Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and her friends; grumpy Nick (Jake Johnson), overly confident Schmidt (Max Greenfield), competitive Winston (Lamorne Morris), and model (Hannah Simone).The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

As far as animated films go, 2016 has offered a wild assortment of big-screen releases, ranging from exceptional (Zootopia, Kubo and the Two Strings) to downright awful (Ratchet & Clank). Trolls – the latest effort from Dreamworks Animation – sadly fits somewhere into the latter category, a studio product that feels like it was built in a focus group rather than a creative team with an imaginative story worth telling. Perhaps its basis on the popular line of Troll dolls should be a red flag.
The film follows Princess Poppy (voiced by Anna Kendrick) and reluctant ally Branch (voiced by Justin Timberlake) as they set off on a mission to rescue a group of kidnapped Trolls from the monstrous Bergens, ogre-like creatures who eat their kind on a holiday called “Trollstice” in order to achieve happiness. By now, everyone has heard Timberlake’s hit single “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” and for those viewers »

They're small, squat and fuzzy, with ridiculous hair and a love of anonymous mischief-making ... but enough about folks who haunt comments sections and blow up Twitter feeds. This DreamWorks animation joint revolves around a different type of troll, specifically those vintage miniature dolls blessed with drunken-pug faces and gravity-defying 'dos. Having licensed the IP for the purposes of big-screen toysploitation, the company has come up with a story in which our furry little friends are pursued by giants known as Bergens; if these miserable, ogre-like creatures consume a troll on a holiday known as "Trollstice, »

Chicago – “Trolls” isn’t the type of confection that I would normally subject myself to, but at least it didn’t make me want to stick knitting needles in my ears. That’s because “Trolls” aspires to be this season’s “Frozen,” a full blown animated musical jam packed with songs you can’t get out of your head as much as you might try.
In the movie’s world, Trolls live peacefully in safe exile after escaping from the clutches of a people called the Bergens. There’s plentiful singing, dancing, and hugs at regular intervals. And they’re led by Princess Poppy (voice by Anna Kendrick), who in addition to being on the verge of perpetually breaking into song, has an almost pathological positivity in the face of obstacles. Naturally she’s paired up with Branch (Justin Timberlake), the one Troll who’s as sour as she is sweet. »

Chicago – The delightful new animated film “Trolls” takes the familiar doll to a new level of fun and heart. Behind this invention is the director team of Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn, who have worked together in various animation roles over the years before teaming up in their first collaboration for Dreamworks Studio.
“Trolls” has familiar voice talent – Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Christine Baranski and Russell Brand among them, and adds a splash of colorful psychedelia and musical joy. Mitchell and Dohrn has also worked on familiar animated films like “Shrek Forever After,” “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” “Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” and “Madagascar.”

Every year the field seems to get bigger for the Oscar animated feature race. Here’s a run-down of eligible features.
Studio: Sony Pictures Imageworks
Distributor: Columbia Pictures
If “Angry Birds” gets nominated, it will make history, becoming the first Oscar contender derived from a mobile gaming app. To its credit, the bright, high-energy CG toon struck many as far more delightful than such a provenance would suggest.
April and the Extraordinary World
Studio: Je Suis Bien Content
Inspired by the steampunk-esque graphic novel by Jacques Tardi, this female-driven adventure story takes place in a world without electricity. One of the few hand-drawn movies in the mix, and the most classical.
Directors: Andrew Stanton, Andrew MacLane
Voices: Ellen DeGeneres, »

November is one of the best times of the year to be at the movies, as awards season is just beginning and many of those critically acclaimed, indie-darlings are starting to hit theatres. This year, we’re extra lucky as we’re also getting a brand new Marvel film, as well as a new hero, with Doctor Strange.
Not only that, but we get to enter the mind of J.K. Rowling once again with the beginning of a new franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. With these two major blockbusters opening alongside new animated sure-to-be classics, and those hyped films we’ve been hearing about on the festival circuit all year, November has something for everyone.

We are endlessly in love with James Corden and Zooey Deschanel's duet. The late-night host and actress gave Lionel Richie and Diana Ross a serious run for their money Tuesday night when they performed their own unique rendition of the 1981 classic, "Endless Love." However, this time, it would be "Endless Glove." Though the stars sang about a long, red satin glove, the quality of the tune was worthy of a Broadway stage. While the sketch was intended to inspire laughter, the two sounded so good in unison that all we could do was watch in awe. Someone get these two an album together, Asap. While the actress is an accomplished Grammy-winning songstress already, she's not so »
Settling into a hotel bar in Soho after a long day shooting a film for Woody Allen in the Bronx, Justin Timberlake wastes no time ordering the first of several Vesper martinis. “I was terrified all day today, dude,” he says.
“All day I’m thinking about what Woody was going to say to me on set, like, ‘Man, he’s gonna annihilate me.’ I think we all have a level of anxiety. I have it. I’ve had panic attacks.”
Timberlake, 35, is hardly a stranger to working with storied auteurs, among them David Fincher, the Coen brothers, and Jonathan Demme, and yet for the rest of the evening he’ll joke about Allen potentially firing him from the production. He also recalls the day the role came his way.
“Literally, it’s embarrassing,” he says of being cold-called by Allen and offered a part. “Woody, Jonathan… I’m literally working with all my heroes. »

Less than ten years ago, Christopher Mintz-Plasse got his start as an actor when he was cast as the nerdy “McLovin’” in the Judd Apatow-produced comedy Superbad, and playing the nerd is a role the actor has embraced for much of his career since.
But he’s also managed to start a fairly prolific career as a voice actor after being cast as the voice of the Viking “Fish Legs” in DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon. While Mintz-Plasse has continued to voice that role through a sequel and a number of “Dragons” TV series, he’s taking on a new role for DreamWorks Animations’ latest animated film, Trolls.
As some might suspect, the movie is based on the “Good Luck Troll” dolls that have permeated little girls’ doll collections for decades. Mintz-Plasse voices the role of King Gristle, king of the Bergens, a race of miserable »

Well the verdict is in, and it looks like the cast of Fox’s New Girl have come out of this Halloween victorious.
The shot oddly doesn’t come from a Halloween-themed episode of the sitcom, but from a Christmas-centric outing which is scheduled to air later this year. »

A corporate-sponsored disco rave from the happiest recesses of hell, “Trolls” tells the incredible true story of what happened when DreamWorks Animation got really thirsty for that “Minions” money on the same day that a disgruntled former employee decided to spike the entire company’s water supply with massive amounts of ecstasy. Don’t believe what the lame-stream media tells you: that’s definitely what happened. How else to explain this manic rainbow orgy of glitter farts and poop cupcakes? How else to explain how a series of plastic figurines become the basis for a deliriously psychedelic jukebox musical that reinterprets Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” as a veiled attack against the pharmaceutical industry?
Needless to say, Thomas Dam — the Danish woodcutter who created those wild-haired Troll Dolls for his daughter in 1959, and died a very wealthy man in 1988 — is about to give a whole new meaning to the expression: “Rolling in his grave. »

The Trolls star sat down with the Tonight Show host on Wednesday for a wild night of bromantic bestie fun that started with a flashback to their time at sleepaway camp as children.
Donning ridiculous wigs, fake braces and camp uniforms, Timberlake and Fallon shined with yet another installment of their signature sketch in which they play teenagers in the ‘90s, hanging out in their camp cabin after lights out.
This time around, the adorable besties passed the time by singing a hilarious rendition of Alanis Morissette's "Ironic," which is made all the funnier by their braces-induced slurring.
After the always-adorable sketch, the two sat down to talk about Timberlake's upcoming animated film, Trolls. But the singer couldn't help but mention how he stirred up a quasi-controversy recently at a voting »
Justin Timberlake has been zigzagging the globe to promote the new DreamWorks animated film Trolls, and he hit the rainbow carpet for a premiere of the flick in La on Sunday. The singer, who provides his voice for the movie, looked devastatingly handsome as he posed for photos, took video of fans on his phone, and linked up with costars Anna Kendrick, James Corden, and Zooey Deschanel. Between his press rounds for Trolls, Justin has also been filming an untitled Woody Allen movie with Kate Winslet and Juno Temple; we've gotten a glimpse of his character in full '50s-style getups (including an old-timey lifeguard uniform) and shooting an intense scene with Kate at Coney Island in NYC. He also celebrated his fourth wedding anniversary with wife Jessica Biel after making their first joint appearance together in months. »
