7 Anti Rom-Coms to Watch If You’re Single on Valentine’s Day

13 February 2017 1:11 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There are many ways to spend Valentine’s Day, but one of them is definitively better than the rest: Curled up on the couch, eating takeout and binge-watching something on the streaming service of your choice.

But while many people will turn to their favorite romantic comedy to celebrate the day or Fifty Shades Darker to liven up their evening, those of us who will be single on V-Day this year might prefer something with a little more bite than your standard swoon-worthy drama.

So, for all our fellow singletons out there, we present this list of anti rom-coms, which »

Fifty Shades’ Jamie Dornan Says He Can Sing ‘Every Line’ from Frozen

10 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Like many parents with young children, Jamie Dornan has fallen victim to the kid-pleasing power (and countless repeat viewings) of Disney’s animated hit, Frozen.

“Oh my God are you kidding me? I could act the whole bloody thing out for you right now,” Dornan tells People, when asked if he’d been introduced to the film through his daughters Phoebe, 1, and Dulcie, 3.

“And I could sing every bloody line of every song. Trolls is the one at the moment with our 3-year-old. In the car, we just listen to Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick sing at us on every »

Timeless Actor Matt Lanter Climbs Aboard Pitch Perfect 3

10 February 2017 7:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Matt Lanter, best known for his roles across 90210 and NBC’s ongoing Timeless series, is the latest addition to Pitch Perfect 3‘s starry cast.

Variety has the scoop, revealing that Lanter now joins the recently cast John Lithgow for Universal’s musical threequel. Details on both Lanter and Lithgow’s respective characters are being kept locked away for the time being – ditto for the film’s actual plot – but we know they’ll be sharing the screen with Barden Bellas old and new: Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Hailee Steinfeld and Brittany Snow. Orange is the New Black fan-favorite Ruby Rose has also closed a deal to star, though it remains to be seen whether Rose – Hollywood’s newfound action heroine following roles in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter 2 – will be swapping a gun for a microphone come December. »

Original Song Nominees Bring Well-Known Newcomers Into the Oscar Fold

9 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Academy music-branch members seem to agree that 2016 was an above-average year for songs and that this is an especially strong lineup.

As with the score category, four of the five nominated songs are by Oscar first-timers (although the nominees themselves are well-known). Broadway wunderkind Lin-Manuel Miranda was writing “Moana” songs while he was in the middle of his “Hamilton” run – and if he wins, he will be an Egot (he’s already got Emmy, Grammy and Tony Awards).

Justin Timberlake had the year’s biggest-selling record with the infectious “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” which was released six months before the opening of “Trolls,” the movie for which it was written.

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, lyricists for two nominated songs from “La La Land,” are the songwriters for the current Broadway hit “Dear Evan Hansen.”

The veterans in this crowd are documentary-score composer J. Ralph and Sting, the singer-songwriter »

‘Mr. Right’ DVD Review

8 February 2017 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell, Tim Roth, James Ransone, Anson Mount, Michael Eklund, RZA, Katie Nehra, Douglas M. Griffin | Written by Max Landis | Directed by Paco Cabezas

Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Anna Kendrick) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup. She babbles, parties like a monster, cooks everything in sight – and is looking to do something terrible when she meets Francis (Sam Rockwell). To anyone else, Francis’ approach would come across as creepy, but Martha can’t help but be intrigued. They seem a perfect match: she’s bananas, he’s bananas… except he’s also a professional assassin.

However Francis is a hitman with a cause: he kills the people ordering the hits. Just as Martha begins to realize her new beau wasn’t joking when he said he had to step out for a moment to shoot someone, things start heating up for Francis. »

Pitch Perfect 3 Casts John Lithgow In Mystery Role

6 February 2017 7:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After collecting a Screen Actors Guild Award for his scenery-chewing performance as Winston Churchill in The CrownJohn Lithgow has enrolled for Universal’s Pitch Perfect 3.

Word comes by way of Variety, revealing that Lithgow now joins fellow newcomer Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black, xXx: Return of Xander Cage) for another helping of a capella-related hijinks. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Hailee Steinfeld and Brittany Snow are among the returning faces, and with production already underway, we fully expect Universal to lock down another casting announcement or two in the coming weeks. Speaking of which, there’s currently no mention of how Lithgow factors into Pitch Perfect 3, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on the threequel as the Barden Bellas prepare to stage their triumphant return.

At the helm for this one is franchise newcomer Trish Sie, who supplanted Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect 2 »

Newswire: John Lithgow warms up for Pitch Perfect 3

3 February 2017 12:24 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

One of the weirdest things about the Pitch Perfect movies is how many characters are shown to be in their senior year in one film, who nonetheless return to perform in a college a cappella group a year later (and looking a year older). They can’t all be flunking like Brittany Snow’s character, can they? It’s rather una-ca-untable. Time stands still when you have great harmonies, we suppose. But even then, it’s not likely that John Lithgow, who’s just joined the cast of Pitch Perfect 3, will perform with the Bellas alongside Snow, Anna Kendrick, and Rebel Wilson. His role hasn’t been announced yet, but maybe it’ll be like The Intern, where a senior (citizen) is encouraged take part in youth culture, and teach an actress named Anna a thing or two. New director Trish Sie will just have to suss that »
