Recap of The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 14: T. Earl King VI

10 hours ago

Elizabeth Keen might be single and ready to mingle, but let's not forget that she's actually married to Washington D.C.'s resident deranged murderer, Tom Keen -- aka our second-favorite character on "The Blacklist" other than Raymond Reddington's fedora. Last time we checked on Tom, he was secretly in cahoots with Red, and this week he's back for even more iffiness. In other words, your prayers have been answered. But what does Tom want? Read on.

Reddington Gets Himself Kidnapped, Liz Flies To His Rescue Apparently there's a creepy family known as the Kings lurking around the USofA, and they consist of a geriatric old man named Earl and his two sons, Tyler and Francis. These American royals (not to be confused with actual American royals, Kim and Kanye West) spend their time hosting covert auctions where anything from paintings to humans are sold, and their latest acquisition is Reddington's friend, »

Here's the Lineup for Comedy Central's Justin Bieber Roast

16 hours ago

Comedy Central revealed Thursday the full lineup for its roast of Justin Bieber, and among the usual suspects were a few surprising names.

Leading the head-scratchers is lifestyle maven Martha Stewart, who's set to throw down insults among more seasoned comedy veterans including Comedy Central roast staples Jeffrey Ross and Natasha Leggero. Musicians Snoop Dogg and Ludacris have also made the cut, as did former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal.

Comedians Chris D'Elia and Hannibal Buress round out the roster. The previously-announced Kevin Hart is set to host, with Comedy Central reminding fans on Twitter that the roastmaster has encouraged roasters to "go hard" in their torching of Bieber.

Charlize Theron Investigates in Gillian Flynn's 'Dark Places' (Video)

16 hours ago

A new international (and somewhat Nsfw) trailer for "Dark Places," based on the book by "Gone Girl" author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn, shares its predecessor's penchant for ominous twists and turns -- and appears equally goosebump-inducing.

The film follows Libby (Charlize Theron), a now-grown woman whose mother and sisters were murdered when she was 8. Libby implicated her brother, Ben, in the crime, and he's currently in prison -- but a group of people dubbed the Kill Club believe he may be innocent.

Libby agrees to track down old witnesses in an effort to uncover the truth, though when she awakens the past, she finds there's more to be afraid of than ever before.

"Dark Places," directed by French helmer Gilles Paquet-Brenner, also stars Nicholas Hoult, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks, Tye Sheridan, Corey Stoll, and Drea de Matteo. It's due in theaters this spring.

Slyvester Stallone to Produce 'The Expendables' Event Series for Fox

17 hours ago

"The Expendables" may be moving from the big screen to the small screen: Deadline reports that Fox is working on an event series based on the action franchise.

According to the trade, "Expendables" mastermind Sylvester Stallone is on board to executive produce the show, which would feature well-known television action stars of yore, in much the same way as the films have recycled '80s and '90s heroes. Per Deadline:

It is described as a fun action drama that unites iconic TV stars as a new team of highly-skilled heroes who are on a mission to stop a dangerous terrorist.

[...]

There is no cast attached or approached yet but the producers have plenty of beloved TV action stars to choose from: 'Walker, Texas Ranger''s Chuck Norris, who already is part of 'The Expendables' feature franchise, '24''s Kiefer Sutherland, 'Magnum, P.I.''s Tom Selleck, 'Xena''s Lucy Lawless, »

#Tbt: Maggie Smith Through the Years

18 hours ago

We can't get enough of Dame Maggie Smith this week. For one, the accomplished British actress stars in the highly-anticipated "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," which opens this Friday. She also made headlines when she revealed to The Sunday Times that she's likely to leave "Downton Abbey" after next season. Ah, Dowager Countess, we will miss you...

Smith has had such a versatile career, wowing audiences in everything form Shakespeare to "Harry Potter" to "The First Wives Club," so we thought today's #Tbt should be all about the Dame through the years. Flip through photos of Maggie Smith from the beginning of her career to now.

Jennifer Lawrence and Steven Spielberg Team for War Photographer Biopic

19 hours ago

The world's biggest actress and the world's biggest director are teaming up for a new movie.

Deadline reports that Jennifer Lawrence and Steven Spielberg will collaborate on an adaptation of "It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life Of Love And War," the memoir of Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Lynsey Addario. Lawrence will star as Addario, whose book describes her work in some of the most dangerous regions of the world, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Darfur, the Congo, and Libya, and her capture by pro-Quaddafi forces in the latter country.

According to Deadline's report, the recently-released "It's What I Do" was a hot commodity in Hollywood when its rights became available, and several other star-studded teams were vying for the property. Lawrence and Spielberg reportedly beat out the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Margot Robbie, George Clooney, and the team of Darren Aronofsky and Natalie Portman for the project.

Warner Bros. is set to distribute the film. »

Yippee-Ki-Broadway: Bruce Willis Set to Star in Stage Adaptation of 'Misery'

22 hours ago

Well this is... something. Bruce Willis, who has recently given up trying to choose what projects will be interesting and fresh and retain his brand as a worldwide star and has instead been starring in a series of direct-to-video-ish action movies and other franchise junk (and yet he sat out "Expendables 3"?), will make his Broadway debut this fall in a stage adaptation of Stephen King's "Misery." No, this is not some kind of elaborate joke. This is 100% true.

Willis will play the captive author essayed by James Caan in Rob Reiner's Oscar-winning film adaptation. Starring opposite him, as the homicidal super-fan Annie Wilkes is Broadway veteran Elizabeth Marvel. William Goldman, who wrote the film adaptation, has returned to write the book for the play (hopefully retaining some of the more fantastical elements that were jettisoned in the final film).

Little other information has been provided besides the play being a "strictly limited engagement. »

Dan Stevens to Play the Beast in Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast'

22 hours ago

Following yesterday's pitch perfect announcement that Luke Evans had signed up to play Gaston in Disney's live-action version of their groundbreaking animated fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast," The Hollywood Reporter has made word that Dan Stevens, formerly of "Downton Abbey" and "The Guest" (one of our very favorite films from last year) has signed on to play the titular Beast. Stevens confirmed this news via the greatest tweet ever.

- Dan Stevens (@thatdanstevens) March 5, 2015 Stevens will play opposite Emma Watson, who will essay Belle in the Bill Condon-directed feature (set to begin filming sometime later this year), and perfectly embodies the kind of charm and ferocity required of the character. Recently we spoke to Glen Keane, the Disney animator responsible for bringing The Beast to life, and he told us who he thought should play the character in the live action remake: Tom Hardy. »

30 Comedy Movie Mistakes So Funny They Hurt

23 hours ago

There's one simple reason we watch comedies: to laugh. So, let's face it, a comedy doesn't need a perfect plot, sharp editing, or great camerawork to be considered a classic. But that doesn't mean movie mistakes are any less intriguing. Great comedies like "Groundhog Day" and "Anchorman" can easily brush off the occasional continuity error, though there's no guarantee that we, as viewers, will just overlook them.

In that spirit, check out the gallery below for 30 comedy "oops" moments.. As usual, all photos come courtesy of MovieMistakes.com. »

Best of Late Night TV: Conan In Cuba and Zoe Kravitz's Game of Beer Pong (Video)

4 March 2015 10:52 PM, PST

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Conan is in Cuba! This late night talk show visited Cuba on a mission to meet the locals and get to know the culture (shout out to Cuban Andy!), and it was obviously iconic. However, the best moment by far was Conan learning to dance the Cuban Rumba.

But wait, there's more. Conan also joined a Cuban salsa band. You're welcome, world.

You may have noticed that Danny DeVito spends a lot of time tweeting photos of his right foot and hashtagging it #TrollFoot. It's weird, and also amazing, so you can imagine our joy when he showed up on "The Tonight Show" and whipped out Troll Foot for »

Dave Franco Facts: 10 Things You Didn't Know About the 'Unfinished Business' Star

4 March 2015 11:30 AM, PST

By Briggs Briar, Wonderwall

When you want to be an actor, it's not always easy to carve your own path when you have a sibling who's already found success in the spotlight. For every Casey Affleck and Jake Gyllenhaal, there's a Michael Bacon, Frank Stallone or Don Swayze.

With supporting roles in films such as "Warm Bodies," "21 Jump Street" and "Neighbors" already on his resume, the 29-year-old actor is primed to inspire even more laughs when he stars alongside Vince Vaughn in the new comedy "Unfinished Business," out March 6, 2015.

Neill Blomkamp Is Sad More People Don't Explode In 'Chappie' (Exclusive)

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST

In just three movies, South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp (who now lives in Canada, actually) has established himself as a science-fiction visionary, fearlessly taking audiences into the distant future while reminding them very much of the world in which they live. This can mean shining a light on refugee aliens in a derelict Johannesburg in "District 9" (an allegory for immigration and Apartheid, amongst other things) and making the gap between the wealthy and the poor a glittery technological gulf exemplified by a ritzy space station in the unfairly maligned "Elysium."

In his newest film, "Chappie," Blomkamp returns to Johannesburg to focus on a broken police robot who is given a new personality chip by an intrepid inventor (Dev Patel) and then promptly stolen by a couple of low level thugs, played by Ninja and Yolandi Visser from the South African rap-rock outfit Die Antwoord. Oh, and Hugh Jackman plays a cargo short-wearing Luddite. »

Luke Evans Cast as Gaston in 'Beauty and the Beast'

4 March 2015 9:00 AM, PST

The beauty has been found, the beast is still a question mark, but the villain has a name.

Variety reports that "Dracula Untold" star Luke Evans is close to signing a deal to play the dastardly Gaston in the live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast." He would star opposite Emma Watson as Belle. There are also rumors that Emma Thompson is in talks to play Mrs. Potts.

Gaston is the main villain of the movie; he's a spurned suitor of Belle's who rounds up the townspeople to take down the Beast. It's still unclear what form the Beast will take - whether the character will be rendered in CGI, use motion-capture technology (like in the "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" films), or rely on prosthetics.

Disney has been hard at work making live-action versions of their popular animated tales. "Cinderella" just hit theaters, while "The Jungle Book" is in the works. »

Ian McKellen Has One Last Mystery to Solve in 'Mr. Holmes' Trailer

4 March 2015 8:30 AM, PST

Move over, Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey, Jr. - there's a new Sherlock Holmes in town.

Ian McKellen plays the famous fictional detective in the upcoming film, "Mr. Holmes," from director Bill Condon. A new teaser trailer gives us a glimpse at the story: An aging, 90something Holmes is in retirement, living with a housekeeper (Laura Linney) and her young son, when an old unsolved case comes back to haunt him. But the whip-smart detective's memory isn't what it used to be, and completing the puzzle won't be an easy task.

The trailer looks gorgeous, and McKellen seems to be in top form - all in all, a potentially very satisfying piece of Prestige British Filmmaking.

"Mr. Holmes" opens in theaters later this year.

Oscars Considering Going Back to Five Best Picture Nominees

4 March 2015 7:30 AM, PST

If it's an honor to be nominated for an Oscar, then three films wouldn't have had that honor last year if the Best Picture category had been capped at five.

Yet, that's exactly what the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is considering, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Since 2009, the number of potential Best Picture nominees was raised to 10, but now the organization may return to the previous number of five.

THR sources say that AMPAS board members feel like the higher number of nominees has "watered down the prestige of a nomination." And including more Best Picture films hasn't boosted the ratings of the ceremony broadcast. "They tried it, and it really didn't do us any good," one source said.

The initial decision to raise the number of nominees to 10 was born from a widespread feeling that the blockbuster hit "The Dark Knight" had been snubbed in the category. »

'Selfless' Trailer: Ryan Reynolds Mind-Melds With Ben Kingsley

4 March 2015 6:45 AM, PST

The quest to live forever has captured our collective imagination for centuries, from ancient texts in the time of Alexander the Great to current sci-fi movies. But as a scientist notes in the trailer for "Selfless," "Immortality has some side effects."

That proves to be quite the understatement. In the movie, Ben Kingsley plays an aging, brilliant billionaire who wants to extend his life. He's offered that chance by a scientist (Matthew Goode), who's developed a procedure that would transfer Kingsley's mind into a much younger body - that of Ryan Reynolds.

But after the seemingly successful procedure, things start to go awry (natch), as Reynolds' consciousness battles that of Kingsley's for ultimate control.

"Selfless" opens in theaters this summer.
