'Beauty and the Beast' Stars Josh Gad, Luke Evans and Dan Stevens Join James Corden for a Crosswalk Musical

15 March 2017 11:31 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

You haven't seen Beauty and the Beast until you've seen the cast of Disney's live-action reimagining perform the iconic tale in a Hollywood crosswalk while narrowly avoiding oncoming traffic.

On Monday's Late Late Show, James Corden assembled his Crosswalk Theater Company for the outdoor performance, and they were joined by Luke Evans, Josh Gad, and a very reluctant Dan Stevens -- who star in the film as Gaston, LeFou, and The Beast respectively.

Cordon, of course, cast himself in the role of Belle.

Watch: Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne Perform ‘The Lion King’ With James Corden in a Crosswalk

Taking to the busy street outside the CBS lot in West Hollywood, Corden and his crew put on a live performance for the ages -- including musical numbers full of choreographed singing and dancing -- which went totally unappreciated by grumpy passersby.

Every number -- performed in the middle of the busy crosswalk whenever the light gave them the »

‘Bob’s Burgers Music Album’ Sneak Peek: Watch Teddy Unbox the Goodies (So to Speak) and Listen to Two Songs

23 February 2017 12:52 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The “Bob’s Burgers Music Album” is coming your way May 12, and it’s loaded up with more goodies than a Poutine on the Ritz Burger.

This is not the time to be modern and go the digital route for your music. Hell, even buying the CDs isn’t old-school enough. Instead, if you buy the the “Bob’s Burgers Music Album” deluxe limited-edition gift box, that comes with three LPs  (in “condiment-colored” vinyl?!), a Bob’s Buskers seven-inch white vinyl LP, a hardbound lyric book (for those times you need to know more than just “Butts, Butts, Butts”), a sheet music collection, three original posters and a lot more. What is “more” you ask? Take a look at the unboxing video below featuring Teddy’s hairy arms and mumbly narration to see everything:

Of course, the two-cd album is still chockfull of “Bob’s Burgers” audio goodness, which amounts to 107 songs. »

16 February 2017 4:04 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A show like “Planet Earth II” doesn’t come around every day. In fact, it’s been 10 years since the original nature docuseries wowed the world with mind-blowing filmmaking that was both visually breathtaking and emotionally stirring. Now it’s back and better than ever, featuring even more rare looks at the world around us, great storytelling and the original narration by David Attenborough (last time, we Yanks got the Sigourney Weaver dub).

‘Oj: Made in America’ Will Win the Best Documentary Oscar — Here’s Why

15 February 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As usual, the five nominees in the fiercely competitive Best Documentary Oscar category are comprised of high-profile hits and festival award-winners with the right combination of accessibility, artful filmmaking, and gravitas. However, this year’s race was marked by outside factors that included #OscarsSoWhite and the election of President Donald Trump. (Of note: Filmmakers of color directed four of the five nominated feature documentaries.)

Here’s how the documentary race shakes out:

O.J.: Made in America” (Ezra Edelman, Espn, May 20)

Scoring great reviews at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival was Ezra Edelman’s five-part movie “O.J.: Made in America,” an exhaustive, eye-opening examination of O.J. Simpson and race relations in Los Angeles from the ’60s through the Trial of the Century and beyond.

The movie swept through awards groups: it won three Cinema Eye Honors awards, took home the Ida for Best Feature, the Gotham, the National Board of Review, National Society of Film Critics, »

Fifty Shades Darker movie review: where is the fantasy?

14 February 2017 3:13 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Thank god this insult of a movie doesn’t try to fool us into believing that the controlling Christian Grey is appealing. That would be even more horrific… I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): appalled by the popularity of this series

I have read the source material (and I loathe it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Happy Valentine’s Day! Feels more like Groundhog Day, though, what with demure idiot Ana Steele jumping right back onto the horrific merry-go-round of her “relationship” with Seattle billionaire Christian Grey. It’s more of the same in Fifty Shades Darker that we saw in the first movie, Fifty Shades of Grey: He does something utterly inappropriate to violate her boundaries as a person, she bites her lip and unconvincingly murmurs “Go away,” he gets even more unpleasantly aggressive, and she gives in to him. »

Inside the Grammys Boycott: Why Stars Including Frank Ocean, Kanye West and Justin Bieber Could Skip Music’s Biggest Night

9 February 2017 1:18 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Grammy Awards might be missing some of the biggest names in music on Sunday, as stars who are taking issue with the Recording Academy are vowing to boycott the big show.

Although the controversy is smaller in scale to the #OscarsSoWhite firestorm last year, some artists are opting out of the Grammy Awards — or remaining circumspect about their possible attendance — for several reasons.

From concerns about racial inequality to questions about the continued relevance of the awards show that has been held annually since 1959, here are five things to know about this year’s Grammys controversy:

3 February 2017 8:11 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Over 27 years later, Rumer Willis has fallen into the Gap just like her mother, Demi Moore.

The clothing brand is bringing back 15 styles from the '90s and in doing so, has recreated ads from the era with the help of the sons and daughters of their former campaign stars. Rumer, who is the daughter of Demi and Bruce Willis, models a Gap jean jacket that's very similar to the one her mother wore for her ad in 1990.

"How you gonna show off your jean jacket?" Rumer, 28, captioned a photo of posing in the jacket, which was paired with a white bodysuit and high-waisted black jeans.

Gap’s New Ads Are Going to Give You Ridiculous ’90s Nostalgia

2 February 2017 9:24 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you jumped on the ’90s revival train in a big way last year (we’re looking at you, Kendall Jenner, the champion of bringing back every single long lost trend), the decade is continuing to have a major moment in 2017. Gap is keeping the throwback trend going with its new curated collection. The brand is bringing back 15 iconic ’90s styles from the archives, and they’re revisiting the brand’s iconic ads to go with them, fronted by (very appropriately) the most iconic supermodel of the ’90s, Naomi Campbell, who posed for the brand in 1992 wearing the pocket tee »

Remember when Quantico was fun-but-far-fetched? Yeah, those were good times.

There’s a moment in this week’s Quantico where Marcia Cross’ now-President Claire Haas delivers a monologue that Hillary Clinton herself has probably muttered to herself while walking the woods of Chappaqua.

When Shelby asks the former vice president why she isn’t ready to “just do the right thing” in regard to the show’s pressing terrorist problem, Claire replies, “Because I wasn’t elected. America elected a half-as-qualified man with next to no experience, a man »

T2 Trainspotting soundtrack review – choose better than memory lane

29 January 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

(Polydor)

Like its parent film, T2 Trainspotting’s soundtrack eschews cosy Cool Britannia nostalgia for something weirder and better. The original soundtrack was a sharp mix of cult classics and of-the-moment artists. Rather than get Blur and co back, Danny Boyle has called on a more leftfield lineup of young guns, the likes of Mercury-winning Edinburgh alt hip-hop trio Young Fathers, Brixton scuzz rockers Fat White Family and deliciously demented Irish rappers Rubberbandits. The classic side of things is held up by Queen, Run Dmc, Blondie and more, with the whole bookended by Trainspotting’s biggest tracks reborn: a mad-dog Prodigy remix of Iggy’s Lust for Life and Underworld’s Slow Slippy. In our retromaniac world, it might not attain the original’s classic status, but it’s all the better for its bravery.
