When Tate Taylor's adaptation of bestseller "The Girl on the Train" starring Emily Blunt ("Edge of Tomorrow," "Looper"), Justin Theroux ("The Leftovers") and Rebecca Ferguson ("Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation") arrives in theaters October 7th, 2016, Disney/DreamWorks and producer Steven Spielberg will aim their marketing eagerly at the same demo as David Fincher's 2014 hit, "Gone Girl." While the original story takes place in London, the film will now be set in the U.S., giving fans of Hawkins' novel an adjustment of scenery. DreamWorks released this photo earlier today of Spielberg alongside director Tate Taylor and his lovely 'The Girl on the Train' cast members, currently gearing up for a busy New York shoot.

Roughly 15 minutes into Sunday’s The Leftovers, Virgil offered Kevin the following piece of advice about his guardian angel from hell Patti: “You’ve got to stop thinking in straight lines. Because she surely will not be. She thinks in spirals and helixes and zigzags and circles.”

The wise old man may as well have been referring to the breathtaking, audacious, innovative hour itself, which found Justin Theroux’s deceased leading man on some bizarro purgatory-ish adventure (click here for a full recap of the episode).
Series co-creator Damon Lindelof »
In what was arguably the weirdest, most wonderful hour of television this season, The Leftovers followed Kevin to the other side this week to reveal not only the outcome of his battle with Patti but also his ultimate fate. So was he really, most sincerely dead? Or if he was, is he still? Read on…

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode eight of season two of “The Leftovers,” titled “International Assassin.”
The last time we saw Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), he was being dragged out of Virgil’s trailer by Michael, seemingly dead from a poison overdose. And this week, “The Leftovers” picked right back up where we left off. Creator Damon Lindelof had joked on “Talking Dead” that he had “no tolerance for ambiguity” — and indeed, “International Assassin” (penned by Lindelof and Nick Cuse) dove straight into solving the mystery of our leading man’s fate.
Kevin woke to find himself in a hotel that serves as a purgatory — where Virgil is the concierge and Patti Levin’s husband, Neil, is a hotel guest. (So, too, is Mary Jamison, whom Kevin glimpses in a long hallway shot as she’s getting a “Get Well” bouquet of balloons.) In this netherworld, »

Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you’ve watched episode 207 of “The Leftovers,” titled “A Most Powerful Adversary.”
Kevin Garvey had a very “hard day,” just as the oh-so-cruel Patti Levin warned him. Last Sunday’s episode of HBO’s “The Leftovers” ended with a dramatic twist that left him seemingly dead — and shocked fans reeling. In an exclusive interview, Justin Theroux talked to Variety about Kevin’s “drastic” decision.
How does this season compare to last season for you?
I’m loving this season. I was loving making it. The scripts we were handed just kept getting better and better. Not the source material (for the first season) was bad; it was exceptional. It was just something nice, for (creator) Damon (Lindelof) and for Tom (Perrotta), too, to be left off the leash and explore some other themes.

Justin Theroux stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night and proved that he can do just about anything . . . with his eyebrows. While it's a known fact that Justin is an insanely talented actor, he decided to really put his skills to the test when Stephen challenged him to an eyebrow-acting contest. The two men then had to express certain emotions and situations with just their eyebrows, including wearing uncomfortable shoes and trying to remember their Apple ID. See the full video above, and then check out all the times Justin made you break into a sweat. »

Both Stephen Colbert and Justin Theroux are notable talents in Hollywood, but when it comes to facial expression, who comes out on top? The late-night talk show host was determined to find out. During Wednesday night's episode of The Late Show, the 51-year-old comedian challenged The Leftovers lead actor to a unique physical duel. "You can tell how hard or you can actually see the thoughts on the face of Justin Theroux...you can really see the thinking of Justin Theroux when he's not talking," Colbert introduced his guest. "We see the wheels turning." The Emmy winner decided to put those unique skills to the test, but limited his expression to solely his »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Come dance with Jennifer Lawrence! Jennifer -- actually, "Jennifer's my father, call me Jen" -- was on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday night to promote the final "Hunger Games" movie, and you had to know Jimmy Fallon was going to put her to work. They discussed their shared habit of falling down a lot, and Jen insisted it's not a shtick. She also shared her two most embarrassing stories, because Jen wouldn't be Jen without endearing, relatable anecdotes: The first involved a woman who was Not Elizabeth Taylor, but Jen really thought she was; the other involved the real Francis Ford Coppola, her bare feet, and a revealed thong.
On to the dancing! »

The cast of The Leftovers may not be allowed to spill on upcoming episodes, but ya gotta hear what Amy Brenneman said to me just last night. "When I read episode nine, I was like, 'Holy s--t!'" she said at artist Steven Janssen's one-night solo show at the De Re Gallery in West Hollywood. "I'm a cast member and I had that response so I could only imagine the pleasure you'll have. "Episode nine was so satisfying in the ways things have been…nurtured from episode one," she continued. "So, it's not random. It's like, 'Oh, my god! That is perfect!'" We also got an update on how her co-star Justin Theroux has been doing since marrying Jennifer »
He was once the world's most famous male model. Even his looks were household names. Le Tigre. Magnum. And of course, Blue Steel. But that was a long, long, long time ago. Now, Derek Zoolander is back, and the world of male modeling has changed. Paramount Pictures has released the first full trailer for Zoolander 2, and it brings Derek out of retirement, along with a whole slew of celebrity cameos. Things kick of with the 'androgynous' Benedict Cumberbatch being asked if he has a hot dog or a bun. And it gets crazier from their.
Penélope Cruz stars as Montana Grosso. She recruits Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) to help stop a killer who is targeting the most beautiful people in the world. And this assassin is starting with Justin Bieber. All of the targets are dying with Derek's signature look. Blue Steel. And it is »
“Zoolander” is still really, really, really ridiculously good-looking after 14 years.
Now the laughing stock of the fashion industry, Ben Stiller (who plays dimwitted male supermodel Derek Zoolander) and Owen Wilson (Hansel) return to stop the most beautiful people in the world — aka Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Usher and Lenny Kravitz — from being assassinated.
“She’s hot,” Wilson says of Cruz. “I trust her.”

15 years later, Derek Zoolander and his ridiculous good looks are back. After a brief teaser without any actual footage, Paramount have now released a full-length trailer with shows off the returning cast and a handful of new faces. Once again directed Ben Stiller, this time the script is by Justin Theroux, who worked with Stiller on the immensely funny Tropic Thunder.
As for the story, “It’s ten years later and most of it is set in Europe,” Stiller tells Empire. I don’t want to give away too much, but it’s basically Derek and Hansel ten years later – though the last movie ended on a happy note a lot of things have happened in the meantime. Their lives have changed and they’re not really relevant anymore. It’s a new world for them.”

“The Walking Dead” and “The Leftovers” both deal with how humanity copes with the aftermath of an apocalyptic event. Yet this season they share another trait defined more by storytelling approach than by their bleak visions of society.
Where most serialized dramas juggle multiple plots within episodes, each of these series has focused for extended stretches — and in the case of “The Walking Dead,” entire hours — on one or two key players. The result has been, by turns, ambitious, interesting and frustrating, testing the reservoirs of built-up goodwill in both programs.
By that measure, AMC’s smash drama seems far more suited to rely on its audience’s patience, though even with that series, there’s been griping about the herky-jerky nature of this sixth season. The complaints no doubt have something to do with dropping a major plot bomb — the apparent death of one of the few first-season survivors »
