28 August 2016 7:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Eleven nominations certainly warrants a performance - and Beyoncé did not disappoint. The pop icon surprised fans, taking the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards stage just hours after her appearance was confirmed. Beyoncé sang hits from her smash visual album Lemonade. The segment kicked off - after an introduction from Serena Williams - with Beyoncé looking angelic in a white feather coat as words scrolled across the screen behind her. She launched into "Pray You Catch Me" as her dancers fell to the ground behind her, one-by-one. Shedding her jacket, Beyoncé transitioned into a lace black leotard, shimmying and twisting to »

Extended Comic-Con Clip For Trolls Targets Your Happy Place

21 July 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

DreamWorks’ furry critters run rampant – and belt out a song or two – in today’s all-new clip for Trolls, the upcoming animation directed by the studio’s Shrek dream team, Mike Mitchell, Walt Dohrn and Gina Shay.

Hailing from San Diego Comic-Con, the extended snippet sheds light on Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake’s pint-sized protagonists, as they squabble under a blanket of stars. Timberlake, who appears to be playing the grouchier Troll of the two, struggles to get some shut-eye, prompting Kendrick’s enthused critter to offer a delicate over of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence.”

They’ll be joined for the movie by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Beasts of the Southern Wild breakout Quvenzhané Wallis, with John Cleese and Gwen Stefani. And…exhale.

Come November 4, Trolls will test its might against notable »

[Review] Fathers and Daughters

7 July 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The works of director Gabriele Muccino aren’t for everyone. I can’t speak on his Italian films, but the American ones are unavoidably cloying and sentimental in a way that must be accepted or ignored to find resonance. Despite being the one showered with praise, The Pursuit of Happyness didn’t quite do enough for me. I appreciated the story and performances, but felt the artifice. For Seven Pounds, however, I didn’t care. The entire film proved one giant manipulative contrivance yet it unexpectedly hit me with depth and power just the same. So when the opportunity to watch his latest Fathers and Daughters arrived, I was optimistic. It looked ripe for that same emotional catharsis and as such possessed the potential to also crash and burn magnificently.

It’s reality lies somewhere in the middle. Brad Desch‘s script is everything that detractors say it is, but »

29 June 2016 6:54 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In a new “Trolls” trailer, Justin Timberlake lets his voice do the work with the snappy original song called “Can’t Stop the Feeling.” The film stars Anna Kendrick as Poppy, the optimistic leader of the Trolls, and her polar opposite, Branch, played by Timberlake. Together, this unlikely pair must embark on an adventure that takes them far beyond the only world they’ve ever known. The Trolls constantly have a song on their lips, and must contend with the Bergens, who are only happy when they have Trolls in their stomach.

26 June 2016 4:53 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bryson Tiller took home some big prizes as well: best male R&B/pop artist and best new artist. He was up for several other awards as well, including video of the year.

The ceremony aired live on Bet from L.A.’s Microsoft Theater, hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson. See the list of winners below.

Cannes 2016 is a go after Jeffrey Katzenberg, Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick joined directors Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn on stage to officially launch their new movie Trolls on opening day.

The 69th Cannes Film Festival doesn’t actually kick off until this evening with Woody Allen’s 2016 effort Café Society, but that didn’t stop the recently sold DreamWorks. After around 20 minutes of footage was screened very positively to a very warm audience, mostly made up of its target demographic, Kendrick took to the stage to perform their rendition of True Colors, which features in the movie.

Here’s a little more about Trolls before we share footage of the duo performing.
