On 'The Comeback' season 2, what new show has Valerie been cast in?

19 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

You’ve waited nine years, so what’s a few more weeks? HBO’s critically acclaimed but tragically canceled 2005 comedy The Comeback is upon us—a new eight-episode second season debuts Nov. 9 at 10 p.m. With plenty of buzz circulating about the return of Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King’s cult favorite, EW can now reveal everything headed your way in The Comeback’s second coming. (Well, mostly—check out this week’s Fall TV Preview for the full scoop from our set visit.)

Summer Film Budgets vs. Total Worldwide Grosses

2 September 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

While studios tout records, market share and No. 1 status based on box office grosses, we thought it’d be a good idea to look at some of this year’s summer films (tentpoles and not) to see how their budgets stacked up against their worldwide grosses to date. These budget numbers do not include domestic/international marketing and distribution costs, nor do they take into account the splits with exhibitors, but they do give an idea of outlay and income. Bear in mind, that while some of the biggest offshore grosses come from China, the studios are only getting a 25% cut from that territory. Also, some of these pictures will end up doing well in home entertainment and may make a profit over time — as in, a few years.

Here are some of the films we were able to compile from smallest to highest budgets with worldwide grosses (and percentage »

The Essential Films & TV to Stream This Week – August 26th 2014

26 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Not a lot to say in the pre-amble to this week’s selection of titles. Should probably apologise for the negativity in advance because a lot of the below is dreck this week across any content provider apart from the occasional bright spot and a new Netflix exclusive. Hopefully you will be able to at least find something worth a look that floats your boat.

This week’s titles of note are as follows:

Gravity (2013)

There really isn’t anymore praise that I can heap on Alfonso Cuaron’s outer space thrill ride that hasn’t been heaped upon it already. Upon repeat viewing what impresses more and more is the technical marvel that this film represents with Gravity being a massive leap forward in the use of virtual sets as well as animation that looks like real people.

There are apparently whole entire scenes here featuring Sandra Bullock and »

‘The Comeback’ gets a trailer for its new season

25 August 2014 8:13 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In recent years, a number of shows have seen themselves get rescued from cancellation, from The Killing to Community, with the comedy Arrested Development finding itself fully revived for a fourth season seven years after its cancellation. The latest show to follow in these footsteps is The Comeback. Originally cancelled after one season in 2005, the series was recently brought back by HBO for a new season, with co-creators Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King both onboard. Kudrow also reprises her lead role in the series alongside returning stars Malin Akerman and Kellan Lutz, and the second season will begin in November and consist of 6 episodes. The first teaser for the season has now been released, and can be seen below.

25 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Here’s a video we know you’re going to Cherish.

HBO on Sunday aired the first official teaser for The Comeback‘s highly anticipated return, and it’s definitely something we do want to see.

Arnie and Jet Li's Expendables 3 characters are gay, says director

19 August 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Patrick Hughes has said that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jet Li's Expendables 3 characters are gay.

Speculation emerged online after the release of the third film, as a scene involving Schwarzenegger and Li sees the pair getting close in a bar.

Asked if Trench (Schwarzenegger) and Yin Yang (Li) are in a relationship, the director told Grantland: "I believe they are."

The Expendables 3 opened in cinemas on August 14 in the UK and August 15 in the Us.

It debuted at number four in the Us box office, with takings of $16.2m in its first weekend.

The film stars an ensemble cast including Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes and Mel Gibson.

Twilight's Kellan Lutz, Terry Crews and Kelsey Grammer also star.

Crews revealed to Digital Spy that he would love to see a cross-over film with the Fast and Furious cast. »

Guess Which "Expendables" Are A Couple

18 August 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It turns out that a throwaway gag at the end of "The Expendables 3" wasn't as throwaway as expected. Apparently the macho action thriller sequel features a gay couple, and it isn't hunky newbies played by Kellan Lutz or Glen Powell.

Nope. Rather it's Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jet Li's characters. Didn't see that coming did you?

Spoilers Ahead

In one the film's final scenes, Jet Li's Yin Yang, Schwarzenegger's Trench and Stallone's Barney Ross characters are in a bar celebrating and commiserating together. Buzzfeed describes the scene as follows:

"So, you’re working for Trench now?" Ross asks Yang, who responds by just shooting Trench a knowing look and a smile. As Ross turns to walk away, Trench and Yang lean in even closer to each other, grinning so widely, they almost start to giggle.

"You guys want to get a room?" asks Ross.

"We don’t need a room! »

Which 'Expendables 3' newcomer has the biggest balls? Ronda Rousey, apparently

17 August 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) When the name of your mercenary team is the Expendables, it’s always a good idea to have some newbie cannon fodder on hand. For "The Expendables 3," writer/producer/star Sylvester Stallone once again recruited fresh meat. In addition to genre icons Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes, Stallone set his sights on a selection of fresh faces from the worlds of film and professional fighting. Franchise newcomers include "Twilight" hunk and rising action star Kellan Lutz ("The Legend of Hercules"), mixed martial artist and Ufc women’s champion Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz, and emerging actor, writer, producer and stuntman Glen Powell ("Ride Along 2"). Throw in Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer ("Frasier," "Boss"), and the mixture became as volatile as a Molotov cocktail. At a recent press conference, the new recruits sounded off on the fun – and the occasional hard knocks – of joining Stallone’s team. »

Sylvester Stallone: 'Arnie is brilliant... but I want to strangle him'

17 August 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sylvester Stallone has made light of his "competitive" rivalry with friend and fellow Expendables star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show, Stallone jokingly told Jimmy Fallon that "hate is a good word" to describe his feelings towards Schwarzenegger.

"I'd do Rambo, then he'd do Commando..." Stallone began, adding that his agent tricked him into roles by suggesting that his action rival would take it if he didn't.

"I really respect this guy, I think he's brilliant, what he's done, he's had three different careers, but I want to strangle him," he quipped.

Everything we know so far about Star Wars Episode VII

Stallone also revealed that he auditioned for the role of Han Solo in Star Wars, but it didn't go quite to plan.

"I could tell instantly, 'No-one likes you'," he said. "I said, 'I'll make it easier for you, I would look like crap in spandex, »

Film Review: As Title Implies, ‘The Expendables 3’ Totally Expendable

16 August 2014 5:59 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The old man as macho action hero trend has finally calcified. If you haven’t seen either of the two previous “Expendables” pictures – this is definitely not the place to start. Sylvester Stallone’s creaky franchise hits rock bottom.

with this shoddy looking, poorly paced, indifferently acted and overlong exercise in excess on the cheap. It supposedly cost $90 million dollars to make, but what’s onscreen looks like it should have gone direct to video. Some explosions look like they were created with an iPhone.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

The poster promises a Cannon Films era wish list of stars – including new additions Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford – in an old school action picture where the body count goes sky high and the bullets never stop flying. But the finished film bears perhaps too many resemblances to the shoddy looking action pictures of the era – it’s an »

Second Opinion – The Expendables (2014)

16 August 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Expendables 3, 2014.

Directed by Patrick Hughes.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Kellan Lutz, Kelsey Grammer, Glen Powell, Ronda Rousey and Victor Ortiz.

Synopsis:

Barney augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables co-founder and notorious arms trader who is hell bent on wiping out Barney and every single one of his associates.

 

Watching The Expendables 3, one can’t help but see the irony. In 2010, Sylvester Stallone rounded up a group of fellow action stars to give audiences what they always wanted to see, even if it was two decades too late to have any real significance; 1980s action gods Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and Stallone himself sharing the same screen (with a few other C-List names added to make up the numbers). The film was fun, »

‘Expendables 3′: Measuring The Sum Of Its Star Parts In Key Overseas Markets

16 August 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Expendables 3 is debuting this weekend in 40 territories including Russia, the UK, Mexico and Australia — and features a powerhouse ensemble that includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer and Kellan Lutz.

Together, the cast outweighs the sum of its parts, but the parts are actually quite interesting when looked at in terms of international box-office drawing power, especially in mega markets like China, Korea, Russia, Brazil, and parts of Western Europe. Below, I’ve broken out numbers for some of the individual stars across those markets with a nifty slideshow that covers their last three major titles outside the franchise in these key territories.* The first Expendables film did about $274M worldwide, with $171M from overseas. In an unusual turn of events for a sequel, the franchise’s second film saw its earnings drop in the U. »

Ranking 2014's summer blockbusters from worst to best

16 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The summer blockbuster season isn't what it used to be. We no longer have to wait until July for Hollywood's epic spectacles, with studios now lining up their tentpole releases as early as March - this year we saw the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theatres before the calendar had ticked over to May.

With The Expendables 3 out in cinemas now and pretty much bringing the curtain down on the summer's biggest releases, Digital Spy has flicked back through the calendar to rank this summer's box office big guns from worst to best.

13. The Expendables 3

Despite an ever-expanding cast list that hoovered up Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas, Sylvester Stallone's third Expendables outing landed with more of a whimper than a bang. Franchise favourites like Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren were criminally underused, leaving us »

Sylvester Stallone says Rambo V will be his next film

16 August 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been on the cards for a good few years now, but it finally looks like John J. Rambo is set for a return to the big screen, with Sylvester Stallone revealing to Vulture that Rambo V is likely to be his next film.

“I’m getting ready for that. I’m starting to work out. I’m going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual. A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We’re going to try to cover all the boundaries.”

Rambo V has went through a few different scripts over the years (including Rambo V: The Savage Hunt, which would have seen the former green beret tracking a vicious creature that had been genetically engineered), and back in June it was reported that Sly was working on a script that »

Movie Review: The Expendables 3

15 August 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The Expendables 3 is the latest installment of the cheese-tastic, 1980s style, throwback action franchise. You may not think of this series of films as anything more than an exercise in geriatric yoga for the addled action stars of yore. But, the fact is The Expendables (2010) made $275M on an $80M budget and The Expendables 2 (2012) made $305M on a $100M budget. And that is serious worldwide box-office business.

The Expendables 3 involves some unfinished business. As it turns out, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), had a partner who co-founded the group with him (a new background detail sheds some light on the team’s bloody history), Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who is out to wipe out the entire team – especially Barney. The film is directed by Patrick Hughes, a young filmmaker with only two prior films to his credit. (No you never heard of either of them.) The writing team is led by Sylvester Stallone, »

The third entry in the old-school action star franchise is now upon us and they've got some new young whippersnappers along for the ride as well as a very lenient PG-13 rating. Sylvester Stallone returns as Barney Ross, bringing along the same team from the last installment (minus Bruce Willis) and adding some seasoned vets (Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, and Antonio Banderas among them) and some young guns (including Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, and Glen Powell) as well as »

Review - 'The Expendables 3'

15 August 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The ostensibly great thing about The Expendables franchise is that it gives itself a free pass to be as outrageous and nonsensical as possible because its intentionally overblown fundamentals are meant to be an homage to the quasi-intentionally overblown action classics of yesteryear. The trouble is that such a thing should be fun to watch, and so far The Expendables movies haven’t lived up to that end of the bargain. Instead of reveling in the outrageousness and nods to the classics, the first two Expendables movies treated them as points to simply check off the list for brief moments of buzz while they moved on to stressing their own leaden plots. Thankfully, The Expendables 3 learns how to properly weave the fun and hopelessly cheesy yet endearing cameos together with all the explosions to make for a pretty good action movie.

Considering there are about 20 separate people just on »
