1 December 2013 1:09 PM, PST

Los Angeles (AP) — Fans of "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker created a makeshift memorial Sunday at the site where a car he was riding in crashed, killing the actor and a friend. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says speed was a factor in the one-car crash in the community of Valencia, about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Deputies found a 2005 red Porsche Carrera Gt engulfed in flames when they arrived Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, fans of Walker, 40, gathered to leave flowers, candles and memorabilia from the action film franchise. Walker's publicist said Sunday that »

Video: Paul Walker in his last HitFix interview, for 'Hours'

1 December 2013 1:00 PM, PST

Paul Walker died yesterday at the age of 40, only two weeks before his film "Hours" was scheduled to head to select theaters. Just last month, he made the rounds promoting the film. The drama is set during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the actor played a new dad stranded at a hospital to keep watch over his newborn daughter. And even wth all the desperation, isolation, peril and exhaustion, the "Fast & Furious" actor said the part was "actually the easiest" of his career. "There's no game, no nonsense. You go and tell the truth every day. You live the »

Box Office: 'Catching Fire' and 'Frozen' set major holiday records

1 December 2013 12:26 PM, PST

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and 3-D animated musical "Frozen" dished up box office records over the Thanksgiving holiday. Lionsgate's sequel earned a prodigious $75 million in its second weekend, while Disney's frosty fete opened with $67 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. Both films bested the previous Thanksgiving record holder, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," which earned $57.5 million in 2001 over a three-day period. Snowballing its way to the top, "Frozen" became the biggest Thanksgiving opening ever and the largest opening for Walt Disney Animation Studios. "For a company whose foundation was built on animation, to have this »

Is 'The Wolf of Wall Street' just what the doctor ordered this Oscar season?

1 December 2013 2:20 AM, PST

It's been quite the somber season in some ways: slavery and racial tension, piracy and health care, dementia-addled fathers and embittered folk crooners. Even the year's biggest spectacle achievement, Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity," ultimately takes its weightless heroine to weighty moments of emotion and catharsis (not that we're complaining). It almost feels like what the 2013 film awards season needs is a nice prestige-level dose of the outrageous, something bonkers, something to take the edge off. And Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" is here to answer the call. The film isn't set to screen for the press at large for »

Thoughts on Paul Walker's passing and the way we deal with celebrity death

30 November 2013 11:45 PM, PST

The worst thing about dying young is the hole you leave in so many lives. Paul Walker's car accident tonight must have shocked and devastated the people he's worked with over the years, and I can't imagine how this feels for the people who are part of the "Fast and Furious" franchise. No one could have predicted that they would be shooting a seventh film right now when the first one opened a mere 12 years ago, and they certainly couldn't have predicted the way the franchise became a family affair over time, both onscreen and off. I can't think of »

Interview: Ally & Ashley talk 'The Amazing Race'

30 November 2013 9:00 PM, PST

The "Amazing Race" friends are all gone.    Earlier this "Amazing Race" season, we went through a four-week streak of eliminations for the various all-male teams. After the "Amazing Race" eliminations for Nicky & Kim and, this past week, Ally & Ashley, the season is now left with a married couple, a dating couple, a pair of cousins and whatever the heck Tim and Marie are.   From the outside, Ally & Ashley weren't necessarily the most likely candidates to finish as the season's top team of friends, but the La Kings Ice Crew girls greeted every task with enthusiasm, made »

This Week in Superhero Movies: 'Spider-Man 2' villain secrets revealed

30 November 2013 2:27 PM, PST

Villains are uniting in this post-Thanksgiving edition of This Week in Superhero Movies. Along with rumors and conjecture about future villainy, we look at "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man" casting news, and even the latest on "Aquaman." "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" We've long known that Rhino and Electro will be villains in the sequel, but a new poster seems to prematurely give away the movie's suspected third baddie. Meanwhile, Chris Cooper (who plays Norman Osborn) confirms that the series is indeed building up to something, possibly a Sinister Six film.  "X-Men: Days of Future Past" Was Magneto (Michael Fassbender/Ian McKellen) the second shooter on that »

12 'Anchorman'-branded products we would totally buy from Ron Burgundy

30 November 2013 1:00 PM, PST

The "Anchorman" sequel certainly hasn't been shy about announcing itself these past few months. From Dodge Durangos (which are apparently selling like gangbusters!) to a limited edition batch of Ben and Jerry's ice cream, Will Ferrell's character Ron Burgundy has become the spokesman for quite a few products. But what if you're lactose intolerant or morally allergic to trucks? We've come up with 12 "Anchorman"-branded products we would totally buy from Mr. Burgundy. »

Akon sends Aloe Blacc some love at the 2013 AMAs

30 November 2013 12:21 PM, PST

If Akon and Aloe Blacc team on a track together anytime soon, you can thank HitFix for the idea. HitFix's Katie Hasty caught up with Akon at the American Music Awards last week for a quick chat about upcoming projects and collaborations.  The rapper-producer has projects with newcomers Jeffree Star and Wizkid in the pipeline for 2014, and joked that he's "pretty much collaborating with everybody in the music industry." He then revealed that his No. 1 jam of the year is Blacc's "Wake Me Up." When Hasty suggested that he record with Blacc, Akon lit up saying, "I haven't did that »

The Griswolds and the Stones: 9 holiday-movie families more dysfunctional than yours

30 November 2013 11:14 AM, PST

As wonderful a holiday as Thanksgiving is, we all know that spending so much time with so much family can be a pretty trying experience. Especially when Uncle Ralph gets into an argument with Cousin Laura about the merits of Obamacare and ends up overturning the candied yams onto the cornucopia centerpiece your grandmother took so much time to put together. But take heart, it could always be worse! Your family could be one of these 9 utterly dysfunctional clans from holiday-themed movies. »

'The Act of Killing' and 'Gravity' top Sight & Sound's 2013 critics' poll

30 November 2013 11:06 AM, PST

Less eccentric than the Cahiers du Cinema list, and more representative than the awards of individual critics’ groups, the annual Sight & Sound poll is about the best monitor of international critical consensus at the year’s end – recent winners include David Fincher’s “The Social Network,” Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” and Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master." But if those choices were easily seen coming, the 100-odd critics surveyed this year have thrown a collective curveball: Sight & Sound’s top film of 2013 is “The Act of Killing.” It’s an unusual winner, but not an entirely surprising one: Joshua Oppenheimer’s »

Box Office: 'Catching Fire' not slowing down after $31.5 million Friday

30 November 2013 10:45 AM, PST

"Catching Fire" is still smoking the competition at the box office, and won't be letting up anytime soon.  The "Hunger Games" sequel earned another $31.3 million on Friday night, bringing its domestic total to a huge $253.3 million and its global take to an equally impressive $482.3 million. It will earn at least $110 million over the five-day Thanksgiving weekend, with a three-day (Friday-Sunday) total of  $75 million. "Fire" should have no problem surpassing the $408 million earned by the original "Hunger Games" domestically last year. Katniss and Peeta aren't the only ones celebrating victory over the long holiday weekend, however.  »

TV Ratings: 'Garth Brooks: Live From Las Vegas' dominates Friday for CBS

30 November 2013 9:58 AM, PST

Fast National ratings for Friday, November 29, 2013.   Lady Gaga may have failed on Thanksgiving, but Garth Brooks delivered strong ratings for CBS on the night after Thanksgiving, leading the network to Friday victories in all measures.   "Garth Brooks: Live From Las Vegas" had to lift CBS after an unimpressive hour for a pair of animated holiday anchors, which got crushed by two holiday cartoons on ABC.   Meanwhile, NBC's "Grimm" was down a little from its last airing and "Dracula" was basically flat.   On to the numbers...   Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.4 rating for »
