Watch (and listen to!) ‘11.22.63’ opening credits sequence with music by J.J Abrams

1 hour ago

Time travel mini-series 11.22.63 doesn’t debut until next week, but you can watch the opening credits to the series now. Stephen King — who wrote 11/22/63, the novel on which the show is based — unveiled the titles sequence on his Facebook account today. The J.J. Abrams-produced series that has James Franco traveling back in time in attempts to save John F. Kennedy has an opening credits sequence with images evoking the infamous day of JFK’s assassination — the Lincoln Continental limo, the Texas School Book Depository, the rifle used to make the fatal shot — and key elements of King’s book, like Al’s Diner and the tapes Jake Epping uses to spy on Lee Harvey Oswald. It’s all connected with the classic determined detective red string — the truth of Kennedy’s assassination is a mystery to solve. Below, watch the opening titles, which features music written by Abrams (he »

Final 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' trailer takes grimdark literally

2 hours ago

This morning the final trailer dropped for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring a deeper look at Batman’s stake in this fight. At least, I think that’s what’s happening. It’s hard to tell when you literally can’t see what’s happening, save when an explosion lights up the screen. This is a superhero movie, turn on the lights! We shouldn't be squinting to figure out who is punching who or where which character is. I really do love Batman and Superman. I’m a fan of (some of) the comics, I’ve never met a Justice League or Batman cartoon I didn’t adore, I’m ecstatic about the direction Supergirl has gone on CBS. But I will never, Never get behind this gritty alternate universe where Superman is a murderer whose mother says things like “You don’t owe [humanity] anything” and whose father »

A few photos from the 'Flash'-'Supergirl' crossover set? Don't mind if we do!

2 hours ago

Yes, we got a brief glimpse of Supergirl on The Flash the other night, but the real crossover event won't happen until March 28, on Supergirl. Until then, Flash's Grant Gustin and Supergirl creator Ali Adler shared a few photos of the shoot on Instagram:    The most literal flashback ever typed. @grantgust @melissabenoist #Supergirl #flash A photo posted by Ali Adler (@aliadler) on Feb 10, 2016 at 3:24pm Pst And now, the flashfront:   But too cute not to show his face. @grantgust @melissabenoist #supergirl #flash #crossover @supergirlcbs A photo posted by Ali Adler (@aliadler) on Feb 10, 2016 at 3:26pm Pst Gustin took a moment to complain about his on-set accommodations on The Flash compared to the relative luxury of the Supergirl set, with its CBS money:   Hey Flash producers... I've already got a fancier chair on Supergirl than I've got on Flash. Just saying... A photo posted by Grant Gustin (@grantgust) on »

Ok Go defies gravity in fun 'Upside Down & Inside Out' video

2 hours ago

Leave it to Ok Go — the band that first hit it big thanks to a video where they did elaborate choreography on a bunch of treadmills — to find a whole new form of movement for their latest video. The opening of the new video for "Upside Down & Inside" begins with this message: What you are about to see is real. We shot this in zero gravity, in an actual plan, in the sky. There are no wires or green screen. After that, in what looks like a single take, the four guys in the band, plus two helpful flight attendants (or, more likely, acrobats in flight attendant costumes), fly through the air, do zero-g flips and spins, and explore what happens when you open a paintball in an environment with no gravity. Enjoy.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d. »

'Gilmore Girls' revival adds two Rory exes and a new castmember (but no Sookie)

3 hours ago

That Gilmore Girls revival cast is shaping up nicely. The Netflix series just added two of Rory Gilmore's ex-boyfriends. Milo Ventimiglia, who played Jess, tweeted his copy of the script yesterday to confirm that he'll appear at some point, and Jared Padalecki, who played Dean, will also return, several outlets reported this morning. There will also be a new face in the growing crowd: Sutton Foster, who appeared on Bunheads (and so should be familiar to Amy Sherman-Palladino fans), has joined the cast in a still-unknown role.  David Sutcliffe will also be returning. He played Rory's father, Christopher. So yeah, basically everyone is coming back except for Melissa McCarthy, who played Sookie and was in almost every episode but yet somehow, she says, wasn't invited back. »

'Triumph's Election Special' is the best campaign coverage you'll find

4 hours ago

We have somehow arrived in the era of the surprise release. Two weeks ago, with no advance warning, Louis C.K. dropped the first episode of a series of filmed plays featuring an all-star cast. The day before the Super Bowl, Beyoncé (who has some prior experience with surprise releases) put out a new single that she was going to perform during the halftime show. Yesterday, Funny or Die premiered a 50-minute Donald Trump parody biopic starring Johnny Depp, that no one knew was in the works. And Hulu this week, with virtually no promotion, gave us the 85-minute comedy gift that is Triumph's Election Special 2016, in which Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (and his handler, Robert Smigel) travels to Iowa and New Hampshire to harass the presidential candidates and their constituents. The special's a collection of sketches, some putting Triumph front and center with the candidates — though Mike Huckabee, »

Review: 'Better Call Saul' shouldn't be in a rush to get to 'Breaking Bad'

5 hours ago

It's funny: before Better Call Saul debuted, all anyone seemed interested in was when and how the Breaking Bad prequel would work in cameos from Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and the rest of the gang from Heisenberg's glory days. There was some enthusiasm about getting backstory on Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, but even the most devout Bb worshippers seemed to view a Saul Goodman spin-off primarily as an excuse to spend more time in this fictional universe, rather than an essential showcase for Bob Odenkirk in the title role. Even in Saul's early days, a lot of viewers seemed to be viewing this period of the character's career — when he was still going by his real name of Jimmy McGill, and trying to be taken seriously as an honest lawyer, rather than the cheerful shyster who worked as Walter White's consiglieri — as something to be raced through as quickly »

The director of 'Hardcore Henry' promises crazy action mayhem with the first trailer

15 hours ago

By far, the most aggressive film I saw at last year's Toronto film festival was a first-person action film that felt unlike anything else screening at the entire event. Since then, it's been retitled and now you can get your first look at the official trailer for Hardcore Henry tonight, and it's every bit as lunatic as the film itself. I spoke to writer/director Ilya Naishuller this week about how things have unfolded for him and his movie since Stx Entertainment picked it up for release. "I've been working on it every day for the last few months," he told me, and the result is a film that has been almost totally visually re-invented since its festival premiere. He's working with a great Di post-production team, and the version of the movie that will be playing at the SXSW festival in March is way more vivid than what I saw. »

Is Melissa McCarthy the best recurring 'SNL' host?

17 hours ago

Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. This puts me at ease. I think we can confirm that more than any other recurring host, the Spy star commits to ridiculous characters, crafts great moments, and brings a level of shameless audacity that no other performer can touch. The singular weirdness of her characters and their baffling universality is  Look, here she is previewing this week's hosting gig by singing the famous Kanye West jam "Butterscotch Man." Perhaps her most famous sketch character was Arlene the Office Flirt, a ravenous bandit in a swivel chair who threw herself at Jason Sudeikis and made lewd comments about balloons. It is somehow grosser than I remembered. While "unsettling" is a key characteristic of many McCarthy renderings, it is particularly awesome to see her irk a wine-guzzling women's group with her grim weirdness. The line about yogurt is hilarious (as is the »

Danny McBride in 'Alien: Covenant'? You're not dreaming

19 hours ago

Alien: Covenant is in "early discussions" with an unlikely new actor: Eastbound & Down star Danny McBride, known to fans of the HBO comedy series as former Major League Baseball player Kenny Powers. According to The Wrap, the comedian (whose role is unspecified) will join Michael Fassbender and fellow franchise newcomer Katherine Waterston in the upcoming Ridley Scott sci-fi, a sequel to Prometheus that will take place ten years after the events depicted in the 2012 film. Noomi Rapace is not expected to reprise her role as Elizabeth Shaw despite the character surviving to the end of the last installment. Alien: Covenant is slated for release on October 6, 2017. »

How Deadpool became the most hated and loved character in comics

People just can't get enough of Deadpool. The character is somehow both wildly popular and divisive amongst comic book fans. Here, Eric Eisenberg and Roth Cornet look back on the character's history and what makes him so dynamic. Take a look in the player above or our full Deadpool show below, where we predict why this film will be the one to break the R-rated comic book movie cure and how Deadpool will fit into the larger X-Men universe.  Let us know what you think here or on Twitter.   Roth: @RothCornet Eric: @EEisenberg  »

This Chinese mermaid comedy is destroying the box office

19 hours ago

China kicked off the Year of the Monkey by breaking box office records. The country’s movie theaters pulled in $100.5 million (660 million yuan) on Lunar New Year’s Day — a single day record. A comedy about mermaids is largely to thank for the big turnout at the movies on Monday. A massive $40.9 million of that total came from this comedy, simply titled The Mermaid, on the film’s opening day. So why is mermaid craze sweeping across China? Here’s what we know about the hit new movie: What’s the story? The Mermaid tells the tale of a mermaid who falls for the evil business tycoon she’s been sent to seduce and assassinate. Who’s the big name in this? The name selling a lot of tickets here is director Stephen Chow, a Hong Kong-born actor/director/screenwriter who’s known in China for such hits as Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer. »

A timeline of Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny's 'X-Files' 'feud'

20 hours ago

In September 1997, 28-year-old X-Files star Gillian Anderson took out full-page ads in both The Hollywood Reporter and Daily Variety thanking the cast and crew of her mega-hit Fox series after neglecting to mention creator Chris Carter, the show's writers and, most glaringly, co-star David Duchovny during her acceptance speech at the Emmys earlier that week. The E! Online rundown of the kerfuffle is particularly harsh in its assessment of the actress: On Wednesday, Anderson bought full-page ads...to pay tribute, albeit belated, to the cast and crew of her Fox show. That's right. The cast and crew. You know, the people she forgot and/or declined and/or ran out of time to thank on Sunday night when she picked up an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. "I would like to sincerely thank Chris Carter, my dear friend and creator of The X-Files," Anderson's five-sentence make-good begins. »

Tin Foil Hat Alert! This 'Star Wars: Rogue One' casting title is veryyyyyy suspicious

20 hours ago

Like desperate First Order troopers crash landed on a desert planet searching for water, Star Wars fans are thirsty for any news related to Rogue One. And much like the desert planet metaphor, there’s just enough to keep us from dying…but not enough to feel full. Today’s drop of life-giving Rogue One waters comes from the movie’s IMDb page. Now IMDb can be a font of information, or it can be dastardly liar. Which will it be today? Who knows! But it looks like Jedi could be appearing in the film. So far we know very little about the merry band that makes up the Rogue One team or what their skill sets are. Since it’s Star Wars first foray into the heist genre, it’s safe to assume everyone has a very specific job to do…and they’re probably the best at what they do. »

Lost 'Mrs. Doubtfire' scenes prove it is Robin Williams' most emotional movie

21 hours ago

I tend to remember the 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire thanks to its flashy trailers, which included Robin Williams vacuuming saucily in schoolmarm drag while "Dude Looks Like a Lady" played. Though he was disguising himself as a woman in order to hang out with his kids amid a bad divorce, I tend to look back on the movie's slapstick moments most of all. But wow, don't get it twisted: This movie was sad and pretty real. The drama between Williams and Sally Field, playing a separating couple, is anxiety-inducing and emotional. In these deleted scenes, watch as their drama affects their children.  Sure, Williams was compelling in other movies. I remember his sad, sweet scene with Amanda Plummer in The Fisher King and his Oscar-winning work in Good Will Hunting. But his dynamic with Sally Field is just right and just brutal. You forget that splashy comedies can sometimes do a »

Supergirl's 'cameo' on 'The Flash' last night goes a long way to explaining the crossover

21 hours ago

One of the great things DC Entertainment is doing with their live-action properties is diversifying them. While the cohesive unit that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe can be cool, the seams are really visible sometimes. Especially when huge plot points on shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have little or no repercussions in the films. By introducing two — and now three — universes, DC has sidestepped that thorny issue by keeping film and television separate. It also keeps the TV writers hands from being tied to major movie dates. But still, there is a vast gulf between the “Arrowverse” and National City. The best way to avoid the issue? More Universes! Last night on The Flash, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) traveled with Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) to Earth-2 in the first of a two-part story arc. But while Killer Frost was amazing, and Evil!Cisco attempted to pull our Cisco to the Dark Side, »

Could the Johnny Depp/Funny or Die Trump video actually help The Donald?

This morning Funny or Die released a 50-minute movie starring Johnny Depp as Donald Trump. The Art of the Deal (also the title of Trump’s business manifesto) pokes fun at Trump’s central life lessons. Here, Louis Virtel, Roth Cornet, and Eric Eisenberg talk about the role that Johnny Depp was clearly born to play, and if Trump can actually roll into this and make it work for him.

Review: Profoundly unfunny 'Zoolander 2' faceplants on the runway

23 hours ago

I wanted to laugh last night. Hell, I needed to laugh last night. And Zoolander 2 failed me completely. Brutally unfunny, visually off-putting, and filled with cameos so embarrassing I am bruised from holding a cringe for a full half-hour, Zoolander 2 is every horrible decision you can make with a comedy sequel wrapped up into one nigh unbearable film. There is a single shot in one scene of Olivia Munn, and I couldn't tell you what she was playing or what role got cut down in the final film, but that one last errant useless shot, left in instead of being totally excised with the rest of her part, sums up the way the entire film feels to me. It feels like it was thrown together in a blender and just poured into a cup indifferently, no matter what ended up blended in there. So many jokes fall so »

Play ‘Where’s Dory?’ with 4 new gorgeous ‘Finding Dory’ posters

10 February 2016 11:02 AM, PST

Finding Nemo is my favorite Pixar film, in large part thanks to the mesmerizingly gorgeous seascape created by Pixar’s animation wizards. I’m stoked to return to this beautifully crafted reef in Finding Dory, and the four new posters released for the movie today have me all the more excited to see this colorful, textured world on the big screen again. Seriously, these are movie posters I’d consider getting framed and hung on my wall. Also: You can play a fun game of “Where’s Dory?” with these posters, albeit a game that’s a bit easier than “Where’s Waldo?” Dory probably has a harder time finding herself than we do. Finding Dory — which reunites Dory with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past — opens in theaters on June 17, 2016. Ellen DeGeneres is returning to voice our favorite forgetful blue tang. Take »
