‘Nashville’ Shocker Sparks Mourning, Anger on Social Media

4 hours ago

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of “Nashville”) There were plenty of tears flowing among “Nashville” fans on Thursday night, plus floods of enraged reactions. The object of their wrath was the death of a key character who has been on the show since the beginning, when it first aired on ABC in 2012 before being canceled and then saved by Cmt for Season 5. Rayna, the veteran superstar of country music played by Connie Britton, was killed off in the episode titled “If Tomorrow Never Comes.” Also Read: 'Nashville' and Other TV »

Why Matt Reeves Is a Better Fit to Direct ‘The Batman’ Than Affleck (Commentary)

6 hours ago

Warner Bros. found itself with a very nervous DC fanbase on Jan 30. That’s the day Ben Affleck, signed to star-in, write and direct the studio’s standalone “Batman” film, quit as director citing an inability to give his full focus in all three roles. Affleck’s decision to bail on behind-the-camera duties certainly wasn’t WB’s first DC Comics director-related setback. “The Flash” stand-alone film for instance is currently on hold and being rewritten after not one, but two directors quit. But the departure of Affleck, an oscar-winning director with a long and fruitful relationship with WB, seemed like a bad sign. »

That Time Kamala Harris Called New Homeland Security Secretary at Home to Protest Muslim Ban

7 hours ago

California’s new U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris was so appalled by the bungled rollout of the Trump administration’s ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries last month that she called Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and confronted him about it. “I called him up at home ’cause I got the number,” Harris told the audience at a Creative Artist Agency-sponsored summit of political leaders on Thursday. The call didn’t go as well as she had hoped. “I was really unsatisfied with the conversation,” she told the crowd, which included actors Richard Dreyfuss and Joshua Jackson. Also Read: »

‘Legion’ Theory: Could Syd Be a Creation of David’s Mind Made Real by His Powers? (Spoilers)

8 hours ago

(Spoiler alert: This post contains details from the first three episodes of FX’s “Legion.”) Three episodes into FX’s “Legion,” and it’s still not clear what in David Haller’s (Dan Stevens) life is real and what is imaginary. That confusion is lessened a bit by his time in Summerland, the mutant home/training facility run by Dr. Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), but “Legion” isn’t letting viewers off that easy. The end of Episode 3 finds David opening his mind and memory to Dr. Bird, Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris) and Syd (Rachel Keller). They quickly find it a more dangerous place than they expected. »

‘Sunday in the Park With George’ Broadway Review: Jake Gyllenhaal Paints as Well as Sings

9 hours ago

There’s deep irony in the producers’ decision not to make the new revival of “Sunday in the Park With George” eligible for the Tony Awards. It is, after all, the Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine musical that infamously lost the Tony for best musical to “La Cage aux Folles” in 1984. Back then, the contest was between hummable show tunes and a musical that eschewed melody (at least the kind you could go out humming) in favor of novel changes in key and time signatures that highlight the lyrics. In 2017, it’s easy to watch the new “Sunday,” which opened Thursday. »

‘Taken’ Star Clive Standen Says His Character Is a ‘Nerd’ Compared to Other Action Heroes (Video)

10 hours ago

Taken” star Clive Standen says there’s only one thing that separates his character from the one Liam Neeson originated in the film series — competence. “It’s really a modern-day origin story,” Standen said in an interview with TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “He doesn’t have  yet, so he’s tripping and falling. But he has this forward momentum. He has something you can’t train.” The protective streak shown in Neeson’s character throughout Luc Besson’s film trilogy will be brought to the NBC series when it premieres on Feb. 27, Standen says. “This guy has this one thing, »

‘Rock Dog’ Review: This Animated Musical Isn’t Very Amped Up

10 hours ago

Don’t get too excited, geologists: “Rock Dog” isn’t about an animal into minerals. It’s music that stirs the mountain mastiff in this sweet if ineffectual animated movie, purportedly the first instance of a Chinese animation property — an adaptation of Zheng Jun’s graphic novel “Tibetan Rock Dog” — outsourcing its production to America (“Free Birds” studio Reel FX). With obvious nods to the melding of Eastern and Western cultures, and a hoped-for international appeal, the result is a low-key, simple — very, very simple — story of pursuing one’s dreams (and protecting sheep and foiling wolves) that never exactly soars. »

Robin Thicke is seriously blurring the lines in his ongoing child custody drama, his ex-wife Paula Patton claims.

IMAX Is Counting on a Big 2017 International Box Office

12 hours ago

IMAX reported strong fourth-quarter and full-year earnings Thursday, despite the fact that 2016’s movie landscape did not yield as many giant screen-friendly global blockbusters as the year before, when “Jurassic World,” “Furious 7” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” took the globe by storm.

‘Flip or Flop': Here’s How Much Money Tarek and Christina Have Made on Hgtv Show’s Renovations

12 hours ago

Tarek and Christina El Moussa may be getting divorced, but they have plenty of reasons to continue working together. About 5.2 million reasons, to be exact. The (still, technically) husband and wife real estate team and “Flip or Flop” hosts have renovated 130 homes for Hgtv to-date. It’s been a very mutually beneficial business arrangement, as the Scripps-owned cable channel loves the TV ratings, and the El Moussas must be pretty pleased with the cash. Thus far, Tarek and Christina have profited $5,238,800, according to a Wikipedia episode-by-episode recap TheWrap tallied — and that’s not even counting the 17 homes that didn’t. »
