Sometimes stars can surprise you when they talk about sex, but there are quite a few famous faces who also have shocking pasts! Before these folks got big, they occasionally had to delve into unwholesome professions in order to make ends meet. Stars like Channing Tatum and Cameron Diaz took on sexy jobs when they were struggling actors, and Jay Z used to deal drugs when he was growing up in the projects in Brooklyn. Keep scrolling to see those and many more! »
NBC again edged ahead of its Big Four rivals in adults 18-49 last week, but Univision has made it two straight frames as the top-rated network overall in the key demo.
With its year-round slate of firstrun telenovelas, the Spanish-language Univision typically stacks up better relative to the major networks in the summer than during the traditional TV season. It won a couple of times last summer too.
The network is especially dominant among the younger 18-34 segment of the prime 18-49 demo, and has now won four consecutive weeks in this age group.
Discovery, meanwhile, led cable in key demos with its Shark Week — setting ratings records for the event in women 18-49, women 25-54 and adults 25-54. It also stood as the No. 1 network on all of television in men 18-49.
Overall, according to “live plus same-day” Nielsen estimates for the week of Aug. 11-17, Univision finished on »

We’re over half way through the year now and the end of the summer is upon us, but rather than feeling down while those nights draw in, and the days become shorter, we thought we’d recap our favourite five funny movies of the year to cheer you up. So, get your chin up and take a look at our top five of 2014 so far.
5. The Muppets Most Wanted
It may not have done as well as its predecessor, but James Bobin’s hilarious Muppet movie sequel Muppets Most Wanted gave us a chuckle or ten when it was released in cinemas back in March. Now available on DVD and Blu-Ray, as well as digital download, the Ricky Gervais, Miss Piggy and Kermit starrer is definitely one to see if you’re a fan of our furry friends.

Opening Night – World Premiere
David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m
David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (Treme, Friday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »
As Warner Bros. continues its slow-but-steady-but-really-quite-fast expansion of the DC cinematic universe, rumors have been swirling that Dwayne Johnson will star in an adaptation of Shazam, playing a character who is confusingly sometimes known as Captain Marvel, which is also the name of a character in the Marvel universe. (Yes, there have been lawsuits.) Johnson himself stoked those rumors last month, and today he apparently confirmed his involvement in the movie. However, according to The Associated Press, Johnson might not be playing the lead–the AP claims that he “has yet to decide” whether he’s playing the superhero or his greatest enemy, »

This past June, The Fault in Our Stars brought John Green’s tale of the little infinities shared by cancer-stricken teens Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) to the big screen. Along the way, the film became one of the popcorn season’s biggest movies for non-superhero or Channing Tatum devotees.
As of Aug. 26, superfans can weep to their heart’s content in the privacy of their own homes with the release of the film’s Digital HD edition (followed by a Blu-ray/DVD release on Sept. 16). Talking with EW, Elgort predicts the extended cut of »

NBC didn't find much ratings success with Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls so the show was cancelled. Now, they're trying a celebrity twist with Running Wild with Bear Grylls. Will it be cancelled as well or, will it be renewed for season two?
On Running Wild with Bear Grylls, adventurer Bear Grylls takes celebrities to remote locations across the world, on journeys that push the physical and mental stamina. The first celebrities are actor Zac Efron, actor-director Ben Stiller, actor Channing Tatum, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, actor Tom Arnold, and Today anchor Tamron Hall.
The series debuted at the end of July to a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.43 million viewers. That was a decent start for a summer reality show. The second episode dipped a bit in the ratings but last week's Channing Tatum installment hit a new »
To recap: With “Independence Day 2” still in development in the spring/summer of 2013, two studios went head to head with dueling bad-guys-get-inside-the-White-House movies. Sony Pictures had “White House Down,” and released a few months earlier, FilmDistrict (now known as Focus Features) had “Olympus Has Fallen.” The conventional wisdom tended to favor Sony; their film had stars like Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx and made $205 million worldwide (some notable critics enjoyed its ludicrousness). But at a costly $150 million, “White House Down” only made $73 million at home. In comparison, the cheaper to produce “Olympus Has Fallen,” featuring the cut-rate stars of Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart (sorry guys) made $161 million worldwide against a $70 million budget. The smaller film has the greater profit margin, thus a sequel is born. So unless you’ve blocked it out of your memory, Focus Features has already announced a sequel titled “London Has »

One of the most promising projects of the past decade may have new life, though whether it still resembles its former iteration is unclear. Filmmaker David Fincher had been developing a remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea at Disney for years, and it finally looked like he was ready to tackle the project after the back-to-back productions The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. He worked hard to make the film happen, but his vision for an epic, adventurous retelling necessitated a massive budget from Disney, which in turn necessitated a bankable star in the lead. Fincher approached his pal Brad Pitt, but he opted to make Fury instead. Then Matt Damon and Daniel Craig were considered, but neither wanted to leave their families for a lengthy shoot in Australia. Even Channing Tatum was a possibility. Last summer, after Fincher committed to Gone Girl has his next picture, word came that »

It was over a year ago when we found out that David Fincher’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea was dead in the water; now the project may have new life! Fincher was developing a remake of the movie for years and it was actually getting close to becoming a reality. The big budget film at Disney was going to need a bankable lead and a lot of names came and went including Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Daniel Craig, and Channing Tatum. Alas, his vision would not come to fruition and was left high »

Greetings everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of the WhatCulture.com News Brief. It’s been a bit of a tough week for movie, TV, and entertainment fans, as not only was it a slow news week in general, but we also lost two incredible Hollywood legends. Lauren Bacall and Robin Williams both passed away, and left behind incredible legacies that we’ll talk about a bit later on.
In other news, we have several studios playing Release Date Jamboree and announcing openings for upcoming films and franchise sequels, we have word on the future of Damon Lindelof and HBO’s controversial new series The Leftovers, updates on Marvel’s The Inhumans and DC’s Aquaman, and a glimmer of hope that Michael Bay might finally move on from the moneymaking machines known as the Transformers franchise.
Before we mourn the loss of those who’ve fallen this week, »

It's time to play a ridiculously hard game of "Who's Hotter?"
It's time to play a ridiculously hard game of "Who's Hotter?"
Hollywood heartthrobs Channing Tatum, James Marsden, Robert Pattinson and Eddie Redmayne decided to suit up all at once and pose for a photo at Thursday's Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Grants Banquet at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Pics: Who'd You Rather Date?
This seems like too much handsomeness and swagger for one building to hold!
Here's a few more pics to help you with this difficult decision.
We are still two weeks away from the official start of the movie awards season with the launch of the Venice, Telluride and Toronto fall festivals but quite frankly the Hollywood Foreign Press Association got things rolling Thursday night with their annual Grants Banquet. The organization doled out $1.9 million for worthy charitable causes. This year marks the first time the event, held at the Beverly Hilton each August, took place in the evening rather than as a luncheon. Considering that just about every studio awards consultant was present and that several hopefuls from seen and yet unseen movies were enlisted to accept the various grants, you could say the race is off and running. Especially given that the HFPA’s Golden Globes show ranks only behind the Oscars and Grammys in viewership among kudofests.
Second-term HFPA President Theo Kingma told me that switching the event to nighttime was his idea »

The timing was different from past years, but the goals remained the same for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and its guests: the organization handed out $1.9 million in grants Thursday, while many in Hollywood used the event as an opportunity for awards schmoozing.
Channing Tatum, Morgan Freeman, Sofia Vergara and Minnie Driver were among the stars who got laughs with their ad libs, but mostly the emphasis was on fast efficiency. In one hour, more than 20 stars, including Robert Pattinson, Chris Evans, Eddie Redmayne, Patricia Arquette and Kerry Washington announced donations to nearly 50 non-profit organizations and scholarship programs.
The HFPA’s Grants Banquet, held at the BevHilton Thursday night, followed the tradition of formally introducing the HFPA slate of officers, who were elected two months ago. The event was switched to the evening, rather than the usual luncheon, so that the 400 industry guests could be less distracted by emails, texts »
