As usual, movies took inspiration from books this year, and not just the Ya stuff either (Ok, there was lots of Ya stuff, but it was good stuff!). American classic The Great Gatsby made it to the big screen, another Nicholas Sparks novel was adapted into another romantic tearjerker, and, of course, big-budget hits like Catching Fire and Ender's Game came to life. In your opinion, which is the best book-to-movie adaptation of the year? Vote on all of our best of 2013 polls here! »

I’m not your typical movie crier. Unlike most of my friends, I don’t tend to cry at big romantic gestures or when anyone in a Nicholas Sparks movie dies. But there is one thing that will always get me, as well as most of the other people in the theater: killing an animal. I just can’t. So this week, I quite literally have a pet peeve to discuss with Hollywood.
First things first, there’s a big difference between an animal film in which one dies and a film that includes an animal just to kill it. »

Sure, the centerpiece of any Thanksgiving holiday is that big, glorious meal — a sacred tradition that shouldn’t, nay, mustn’t be sullied by glowing rectangles bearing texts or emails or live television programming. But what about after the tryptophan sets in, leaving you and your family tired, sluggish, and yearning for entertainment — long before the Steelers/Ravens game begins at 8:30 p.m. Et? For that matter, which of the Internet’s zillions of entertainment options should you turn to throughout the rest of the weekend?
Well, that’s where your friends at EW come in. Whether you’ll be juggling restless kids, »

This story first appeared in the Nov. 29 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Last fall, novelist Nicholas Sparks said he was mildly interested in Fifty Shades of Grey but hadn't read El James' explicit book about an S&M relationship. Now he might want to check it out. Universal announced Nov. 13 that the Fifty Shades film's release will be pushed from Aug. 1, 2014, to Feb. 13, 2015, setting up a Valentine's Day face-off with The Longest Ride, based on Sparks' book. It's the first bold and risky move under Universal's new filmed entertainment chairman, Jeff Shell. Photos:

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ release date postponed to Valentine’s Day 2015 (photo: Shirtless Jamie Dornan) Valentine’s Day 2015 will get a lot kinkier than Valentine’s Days of years past — well … depending on your concept of "kink." Universal Pictures has announced that the movie version of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey, likely to get either a tame (for sex) R or an even tamer PG-13 rating from the prudes at the Motion Picture Association of America, has a new release date: Friday, February 13, 2015, the day before Valentine’s Day and the start of President’s Day weekend in the United States. To be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy), Fifty Shades of Grey is set to star Henry Cavill-look-alike Jamie Dornan (Flying Home) as billionaire and S&M aficionado Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street) as his ready, willing, and able sex pal.

Following a rather lengthy development period, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is finally off and running. The adaptation of the sultry E.L. James novel was thrown a curveball when Charlie Hunnam abruptly dropped out of the male lead role, leaving director Sam Taylor-Johnson scrambling to find a replacement with an August 2014 release date looming. The Fall actor Jamie Dornan was eventually cast as Hunnam’s replacement opposite Dakota Johnson (Ben & Kate), but now Universal has understandably pushed the film’s release date back a few months. Instead of going head-to-head with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014, Fifty Shades of Grey will steam up movie theater screens on February 13, 2015. Happy Valentine’s Day! In anticipation of production beginning very soon, the first images of Dornan and Johnson in character as the book’s sex-adventurous duo has been revealed on the latest cover of EW. Hit the jump »

Universal Pictures and Focus Features are pushing the release date of “Fifty Shades of Grey” back by six months after swapping leading men, the studio said Tuesday. The S&M tinged movie, originally scheduled to be released on August 1, 2014, will now be a very dirty Valentine’s Day present to the world. It will now debut on February 13, 2015. “Fifty Shades of Grey” will now square off against “The Longest Ride,” an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks romantic novel, and “SpongeBob Squarepants 2,” which one hopes will attract a very different demographic.

Universal has shifted the release date for “50 Shades of Grey” to Feb. 13, 2015.
Highly anticipated Focus Features pic had been set for release on Aug. 1, 2014.
A few days after Dornan’s casting, Univeral and Focus announced they were moving production back from mid-November to early December.
Sources say Uni execs were actually reevaluating releasing the film in August long before Hunnam’s exit and saw that while the brand would do well in that slot it still makes more sense to release the film over Valentines Day to give that more event like feel.
Valentines Day is always hot spot for romantic dramas or comedies and while this film will be much more steamier than the usual »

Universal Pictures just turned Valentine’s Day 2015 into a sure thing for millions of men. The studio is moving its release date for the movie adaptation of the erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey out of next summer and onto Valentine’s Day weekend 2015, turning what was sure to be a Girls Night Out event into an epic Date Night.
The news, reported exclusively in this week’s EW cover story, comes on the heels of the studio’s announcement that it has pushed the start of production in Vancouver back a month to allow for the production to prep with its new leading man, »

How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 9 “Platonish”
Written by George Sloan
Directed by Pamela Fryman
Airs Monday nights at 8pm Et on CBS
In theory, “Platonish” is an episode about Ted dealing with his feelings for Robin – not only does the title give it away, but the numerous Ted voice overs and longing looks at Robin made it pretty clear early on they were planning to beat the dead Ted/Robin horse for twenty minutes. However, the episode quickly snaps its attention to Barney, focusing in on a disgusting night of woman-chasing to lead him to a completely contrived resolution introduced by a character – the Mother – we still don’t know yet. It’s a messy episode, rehashing old material and retconning pieces of the past, all for the sake of superficial drama that doesn’t matter, a relationship that feels more forced with every episode – and in the »

We’re just 31 hours to the wedding — but for most of this week’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, we were back at MacLaren’s, and I don’t know about you, but I was missing the old neighborhood and appreciated the change of scenery.
This week had several homages to the romantic comedy holy grail –- When Harry Met Sally — so that means we must be getting close, with Ted coming to terms with his true feelings for Robin and Barney having a major breakthrough… Plus the return of Hammond Druthers, a.k.a. Bryan Cranston!
