The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.

The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately »

Silicon Valley, The Americans, Amy Schumer Lead Critics’ Choice Awards Winners

1 June 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The past few years, the Primetime Emmy Awards have been somewhat baffling in their choices. I mean I’m one of the few that enjoyed The Newsroom, but Jeff Daniels winning Best Actor over Jon Hamm or Bryan Cranston? Come on. So it was with joy that many greeted the refreshing nominations for the 5th Annual Critics’ Choice TV Awards, and last night’s ceremony didn’t disappoint when it came to the winners. The severely underrated The Americans took home Best Drama Series, Amy Schumer was recognized for her outstanding work as Best Comedy Actress, and AMC’s Better Call Saul took home both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks, respectively. It was a wonderfully different set of winners, and it’s nice to see these excellent shows and performers acknowledged. For those curious, the eligibility window was for shows that aired between »

TVLine's Performer of the Week: Kathryn Prescott

30 May 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Kathryn Prescott

The Show | Finding Carter

The Episode | “I Knew You Were Trouble” (May 26)

The Performance | One of the brightest young actresses on television, Prescott has always helped set MTV’s Finding Carter apart from the teen-drama herd. And in Tuesday’s episode, easily the sophomore series’ most harrowing hour to date, the London-born actress delivered her most emotional one-two punch yet.

The first punch came during Carter’s heart-rending visit to the psych ward, where her biological mother/kidnapper Lori remained uncharacteristically stoic as a desperate Carter pleaded for her to say, “I love you more.” The »

First Look: 'Mad Men' Debuts Its Own Don Draper-Worthy Emmy Ads

27 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the June 5 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. To receive the magazine, click here to subscribe. AMC is taking a zen approach to Mad Men's final Emmy campaign, focusing its key art on parting shots of characters — including the close-up of Don Draper cracking an enlightened smile in Big Sur that faded into the Coca-Cola commercial during the series finale. "Consider the End of an Era," read the ads, which highlight Jon Hamm and co-stars January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, Jessica Pare, Vincent Kartheiser and Christina Hendricks. AMC

Watch: 'Mad Men' Final Scene Parodies Feature Don Draper's Other Big Ideas

26 May 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Your mileage may vary regarding your reaction to the ending of AMC's hit drama "Mad Men," which aired its series finale on May 17. [Spoilers follow.] The final episode, "Person to Person," saw Don Draper (Jon Hamm) hitting rock bottom while at a hippie retreat in Big Sur, California, then finding enlightenment in the form of the iconic "I Want to Buy the World a Coke" ad, which the show implies to be Don's brainchild and masterpiece. Indiewire's TV Critic Ben Travers called the ending "uniquely fitting" in his review of the episode, arguing that Don's newfound empathy (gained during a breakthrough moment while listening to a man describe depression in a group therapy seminar) was precisely what allowed him to come up with the concept for the Coke ad. Show creator Matthew Weiner had a similar interpretation, explaining that he loved "the idea that some enlightened state, and not just cooption, might have created something that. »

The week in Australian TV: the good, the bad and the soon-to-be-extinct

26 May 2015 12:22 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Trying to find TV nuggets during prime time proved almost as futile as throwing bacon at the sun in the hope of it landing cooked. Thankfully there’s always one

Hidden away at 1am on SBS2 is the enjoyably farcical Comedy Bang! Bang! hosted by Us writer and comedian Scott Aukerman (co-creator of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis). Deadpan, awkward and perfectly timed, this anti-chat show provides blessed meta-relief from the tide of men-behind-desk shows (sent up excellently by Amy Schumer), as well as existing in its own right as a petri dish of sketches and characters.

Playing the role of tortured guest on Friday was Weird Al Yankovic. Personally I prefer the episodes where there’s a straight character to play off Aukerman’s entirely unsuitable host, as with Jon Hamm in the previous week, but things are still reliably offbeat and hilarious here. The entire episode is »

New Images From The Wet Hot American Summer Prequel

24 May 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It might have been more of a post-cinema release cult hit, but Wet Hot American Summer boasted so much comedy acting talent packed into its cast that it was somehow natural that someone would try to bring it back. That someone was Netflix, which commissioned follow-up series First Day Of Camp, which will arrive on the streaming service in July. The first full batch of images from the show is now online.  The series, according to co-writer/director David Wain, is “a prequel to the original movie. In real life we’re 15 years older but in the show we’re playing two months younger. The movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981. The show takes place on the first day.”Pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »

7 Images From Netflix's 'Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp' Have Arrived

22 May 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Reboots have gotten pretty annoying in their excess, but we are not complaining about this one. David Wain and Michael Showalter are offering up a 8 episode prequel to their cult classic 2001 movie "Wet Hot American Summer," and the gang is all here: Janeane Garofalo, Bradley Cooper (hopefully offering up more of the man-on-man action he had in the movie), Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Ken Marino, Elizabeth Banks and Michael Ian Black all return, while Jon Hamm, Josh Charles, Chris Pine and Kristen Wiig are among the newcomers. We could not be more excited, especially now that those first official images have been released... "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp" arrives on July 31st on Netflix.

Netflix Releases Summer Camp Photos For ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Series

22 May 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix is teasing Wet Hot American Summer fans with some new images. The streaming platform has released photos from its upcoming original series, set for premiere on July 31, 2015.

Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer is the eight-episode sequel to the 2001 film of the same name. While the movie told the story of the last day of summer camp at Camp Firewood in 1981, Netflix’s original series will cover the first day. Wet Hot American Summer stars the majority of the original film’s cast members, who are now big-wig Hollywood names like Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, and Bradley Cooper.

Back in December, Netflix announced it would be bringing a TV series of Wet Hot American Summer to life. The original cast members were confirmed a month later, who were later joined by several new faces to the Camp Firewood crew (like Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Jon Hamm »

22 May 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for. The prequel to the 2001 film again takes place in 1981, which of course only augments the hilarity that the cast (originally in their 30s playing teenagers) are 15 years older now, and playing even (ever so slightly) younger characters. All of the film's original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. And, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D. MilesMarisa RyanKevin Sussman, and David Wain (who will again write and direct, with Showalter serving as showrunner). New cast members will include Michaela Watkins, Josh Charles, John Slattery »

Mad Men Understood Human Behavior Better Than Any Show on TV

22 May 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Mad Men closed with its hero, adman Don Draper (Jon Hamm), sitting lotus-style on a hilltop in 1970, experiencing bliss, or something like it. Don had proclaimed ten years earlier that love was a lie invented by guys like him to sell nylons and that we’re all born alone and die alone, and now here he was in California, shorn of his job, his home, his marriage, his apartment, his car, and even his suit, meditating on a hilltop overlooking the ocean. Our final glimpse of Don was a close-up of his face as he smiled somewhat mysteriously, whereupon series creator Matthew Weiner, who wrote and directed the finale, cut to Coca-Cola’s 1971 musical ad, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.” That grin plus the Coke commercial added up to the perfect ending for a drama that was consistently hard-edged yet essentially compassionate, and more perceptive about »

These Celebrity Late Bloomers Will Make You Feel Better About Your Career

22 May 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

With a constant flow of thrilling success stories about superyoung celebrity megastars - like Jennifer Lawrence, Ansel Elgort, and Kendall Jenner, to name a few - it can be easy to think you're going nowhere fast. But what we often neglect to remember is that plenty of celebrities don't achieve success until later in life. Kristen Wiig didn't start delivering all those SNL zingers until she was 32, and Jon Hamm didn't start delivering his memorable performances until he was almost 40! Even the endlessly stunning Lupita Nyong'o didn't receive industry praise until she was 30, when she won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave. Still doubting that you can achieve plenty after your 20s? Keep reading to see all the huge stars who hit it big later in life. »

How the Age of Antihero TV Has Ruined Us All

22 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sunday night, viewers had a choice: Watch Sansa Stark's horrifying wedding night on HBO's "Game of Thrones," or watch Don Draper and a host of other characters find some measure of tidy fulfillment on the series finale of "Mad Men." Viewers seemed dissatisfied with both, judging by how they proceeded to set the Internet ablaze.

The outrage over Sansa's rape (with new husband Ramsay Bolton forcing himself on her while making her erstwhile stepbrother Theon Greyjoy watch) stems not just from the fact that the show's writers gave Sansa the fate meted out to another character in the books, or even that the violence was especially lurid or graphic. (Indeed, by "Game of Thrones" standards, the scene was fairly brief and discreet.) Rather, it was that Sansa has been a fan favorite, a decent person who's witnessed many ghastly events and lost several family members, but who herself had been »

Matthew Weiner Talked About What Mad Men's Final Scene Really Means

21 May 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A good Mad Men episode always makes you think, and Sunday night's finale was no exception. The show's last episode ended with Don Draper meditating on a hill, then fades into Coca-Cola famous 1971 "Hilltop" commercial. We've speculated about what that might mean; did Don create the Coke ad or not? Now the creative genius behind the show, Matthew Weiner, has (sort of) confirmed his intention during a Q&A with novelist A.M. Homes in New York on Wednesday. Here are some of the most enlightening tidbits from the discussion. He's Still Being Cagey About What the Coke Ad Means "I have never been clear, and I have always been able to live with ambiguities. In the abstract, I did think, why not end this show with the greatest commercial ever made? In terms of what it means to people and everything, I am not ambiguity for ambiguity's sake. But it »
