What Every '90s Kid Needs to See in the 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Reboot

16 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT

Those of us who look back on the nostalgic '90s with fondness did one giant eye-roll in reaction to the news that a reboot of the '97 horror quasi-classic "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is in the works.

Yes, it's too soon. No, we shouldn't be surprised.

Since we have no control over what Hollywood does (or doesn't do), we thought it best to put what needs to be in the reboot out for all the Internet to see. (That way, it's a matter of public record.)

So listen up, Hollywood. Here's what the children of the '90s need to see in an "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" reboot. Otherwise, we're coming for you.

Paper Notes

One of the biggest problems with modern horror is its (usually clunky) inclusion of texts, emails, Facebook, Twitter, and IMs, all of which instantly date the movie. »

'Sons of Anarchy's' Kim Coates Says the Final Season Is 'Full Out, Full Throttle, Wiping Everybody Out'

16 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT

"Sons of Anarchy" had its record-breaking Season 7 premiere last week, making the beloved biker drama's final season even more real (and heartbreaking) for the show's fans.

If there's one "Soa" character that stands out from the pack as a fan favorite, it's Alex "Tig" Trager. The wild, violent, and freaky biker has been a source of bloody entertainment and comic relief throughout the show's run. And we wouldn't have Tig without actor Kim Coates.

Coates has been working on film, stage, and TV for decades, and his career doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The versatile Canadian-born actor has appeared in everything from "Entourage" to "Waterworld" to "A Streetcar Named Desire" on Broadway.

Moviefone had the chance to chat with Coates about what fans will see this season on "Sons of Anarchy," as the show comes to its bittersweet end. He also revealed a bit of what »

Extended 'Revenge' Season 4 Trailer Proves 'What Goes Around Comes Around' (Video)

16 September 2014 9:20 AM, PDT

A new, extended trailer for season four of "Revenge" shows that the tables have turned on Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp), and Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) is the one seeking retribution this time around.

At the end of season three, Emily had checked Victoria into a mental institution after the woman discovered that Emily was actually Amanda Clarke. But by the looks of this trailer, Victoria has been sprung, and the angry woman is out to take Emily/Amanda down once and for all.

"When everything you love has been stolen from you, someone has to pay," Victoria says in ominous narration.

Obviously, Emily is her target, but it looks like plenty of chaos is in store for the rest of the "Revenge" cast, too. We'll see just how Emily and Victoria settle their differences when "Revenge" premieres on ABC on September 28.

Prepare to Swoon Over Benedict Cumberbatch Dressed as Mr. Darcy (Photo)

16 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT

Benedict Cumberbatch is sort of a modern day Mr. Darcy, a handsome, roguish Brit who sets hearts aflutter with the smallest smirk. So it makes sense, then, that the movie star would participate in a mash-up photo session portraying the Jane Austen hero, as he did recently for a U.K. charity campaign.

The photo, in which Cumberbatch recreates Darcy's infamous emergence from a lake, sopping wet and wearing an unbuttoned shirt to boot, has been making the social media rounds in an effort to raise awareness for Give Up Clothes For Good, an initiative organized by T.K. Maxx (the British version of retailer T.J. Maxx). Cumberbacth participated in the titillating shoot with photographer Jason Bell -- who shot a number of other celebs, too -- to drum up donations for the cause, which collects used clothing and donates proceeds from their sale to a U.K. cancer charity. »

'Sons of Anarchy' Season Premiere Is Most-Watched Episode in FX History

16 September 2014 8:15 AM, PDT

It's too bad for FX that motorcycle drama "Sons of Anarchy" is signing off after this season: Its season premiere just set a record as the most-watched episode in the network's history.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the September 9 debut of the show's seventh and final season has pulled in a whopping 9.25 million viewers, with live-plus-three day viewing factored in. And with encore presentations also added to the calculations, as well as views on the FXNow streaming app, the episode has already notched 10.6 million views in less than a week.

And the jaw-dropping numbers don't stop there. THR writes that compared to the "Sons" series premiere back in 2008, which scored 2.82 million viewers, the audience for last week's episode had increased by 228 percent. Yes, you read that correctly: 228 percent. Yowza.

We're doubting that Kurt Sutter and co. can be convinced to keep "Sons" around for an extra season in light of these stellar numbers, »

The 'Vacation' Reboot Is Shooting Now, and Leslie Mann May Join

16 September 2014 7:30 AM, PDT

That long-rumored "Vacation" reboot is a rumor no more: The film has finally begun production in Georgia.

The flick stars Ed Helms as a grown-up Rusty Griswold, and Christina Applegate plays his wife, Debbie. According to the film's official plot synopsis, Rusty is "Following in his father's footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding," so he "surprises his wife ... and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America's 'favorite family fun park,' Walley World."

And while nothing is official yet, actress Leslie Mann is reportedly in talks to join the flick, too, as Rusty's sister, Audrey Griswold. The role would see the adult Audrey married to a man described by The Hollywood Reporter as "an up-and-coming anchorman named Stone Crandall."

Crandall will be played by Chris Hemsworth, Charlie Day will play a river rafting guide, and Skyler Gisondo ("Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb »

Finally, We Know What Happens in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

16 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT

Bits and pieces of info about "Avengers: Age of Ultron" have been flying around for two years, but now, they're finally coming together to form a more coherent picture.

Marvel released the official synopsis for the highly-anticipated sequel, which is set for release on May 1, 2015. We've known for awhile that the movie's big villain is James Spader's Ultron (duh) and that Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson play Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

But there's also some interesting stuff to mull over, like Tony Stark's possible role in creating Ultron. Also, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are referred to by their actual names (maybe due to licensing issues with Fox, since those characters are part of the "X-Men" universe too).

Here's the synopsis. Let the mulling begin!

Marvel Studios presents "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, »

Tom Hiddleston Is Shipping Off to 'Skull Island' With Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts

16 September 2014 6:45 AM, PDT

After announcing it was moving forward with an origin story of sorts about King Kong's mystical home, "Skull Island," Legendary Pictures announced Tuesday that it had found the film's lead: Tom Hiddleston.

Yes, Loki himself will be shipping off to the titular mystical location, and what's more, the film just landed a director, too. According to the studio's official press release, Jordan Vogt-Roberts will helm the flick. Though there's no official plot synopsis yet, the Legendary release teased the following:

Previous works have touched on the island, but staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world.

Hiddleston's cinematic achievements are well-know to audiences already (see the above "Avengers" and "Thor" character), but Vogt-Roberts is a bit of a surprise pick to lead the high-profile project. He recently directed Sundance hit "The Kings of Summer" and the »

Hey, Girl! Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Welcome First Child

16 September 2014 6:42 AM, PDT

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are officially parents, according to a new report from Us Weekly.

The magazine writes that Mendes, 40, gave birth on September 12 to a baby girl. No other details, including the child's name, were provided.

Mendes and Gosling, 33, have been dating since 2011, when they co-starred together in the indie drama "The Place Beyond the Pines." The usually low-key couple kept an even lower profile than normal throughout Mendes's pregnancy, news of which broke in July.

Congrats to the happy family, and apologies to all Gosling's females fans -- it seems he has two leading ladies in his life now.

Meryl Streep Will Give You Nightmares in New 'Into the Woods' Poster

16 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT

Be careful what you wish for.

That's the ominous tagline on the first poster for "Into the Woods," which features a witchy Meryl Streep crawling through thorny branches (to getcha!).

The iconic Oscar-winning actress headlines the star-studded cast of director Rob Marshall's film adaptation of the Tony-winning musical. "Into the Woods" mashes up several fairy tales including Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), and Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone). They're all tied together by the central story of The Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt), who are childless due to a curse cast by The Witch (Streep).

Seriously, They're Remaking 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'

16 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT

We all know what you did 17 summers ago.

In 1997, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" was a horror hit, generating $125 million worldwide and making stars out of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Philippe, and Freddie Prinze, Jr. So of course, nearly two decades later, Hollywood wants to reboot the whole thing.

According to Deadline, Sony has hired writers - "Oculus" co-writer/director Mike Flanagan and partner Jeff Howard - to pen a new adaptation of Lois Duncan's thriller. The studio hopes to have the movie ready by 2016.

For you wee babes out there, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is the tale of four teens who accidentally hit and kill a pedestrian while driving. A year later, they receive the ominous titular note, and the foursome are soon hunted by a mysterious, raincoat-wearing avenger.

It was all cheesy, scary, so-very-'90s fun. Watch the trailer »

'True Detective' Auditioning Pretty Much Every Actress in Hollywood

16 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT

"True Detective" has a woman problem.

Creator Nic Pizzolatto is still searching for "the one" - an actress for the lead role in season 2 of the acclaimed HBO drama. The Wrap reports that he's auditioning seven actresses this week.

They are: Malin Akerman, Jaimie Alexander ("Thor"), Jessica Biel, Oona Chaplin ("Game of Thrones"), Rosario Dawson, Brit Marling ("Another Earth"), and Kelly Reilly ("Sherlock Holmes").

Add those names to previously rumored contenders Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams, and you basically have every young actress in Hollywood.

It's quite a diverse list of women who boast a range of acting styles and looks, all looking to play Ani Bezzerides, a "tough, no-nonsense Monterey sheriff whose troubled upbringing has driven her to gambling and alcohol."

Whoever wins the "True Detective" lottery may appear alongside Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, and Taylor Kitsch, who are all rumored for the male roles.

Pizzolatto has to hurry »

Matt Damon Is Coming Back as Jason Bourne

16 September 2014 4:30 AM, PDT

Bourne is back!

In a surprise twist, Matt Damon is set to reunite with director Paul Greengrass for another Jason Bourne movie, according to Deadline. The fifth in the "Bourne" series would hit theaters July 16, 2016 - taking the place of a planned sequel to "The Bourne Legacy," which starred Jeremy Renner.

The news is a bit of a shock, as both Damon and Greengrass have previously declared another Jason Bourne movie as very unlikely. "Because he is a guy who walked away from everything, so we just have to solve that," Damon told the Huffington Post. "And Paul and I haven't been able to do it "

Still, the actor has wanted to try to find a way to make it happen.

"I've always been open to it if Paul Greengrass is the director," Damon told CNBC earlier this year. "We've just never been able to come up with a story. »

Best of Late Night TV: Barbra Streisand Duets, Ike Barinholtz's Obama Impression, Jane Fonda's Breasts (Video)

16 September 2014 12:35 AM, PDT

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.

Music legend Barbra Streisand made her triumphant return to late night television with her first appearance on "The Tonight Show" in more than 50 years. Streisand was promoting her new album of duets, "Partners," and host Jimmy Fallon stood in for several of said partners to help Babs perform a medley. Fallon impersonated Elvis, Blake Shelton, and Michael Buble, while Streisand remained her fabulous self.

Later, Streisand sat down with Fallon (who let her sit behind the desk in honor of her milestone appearance), where she critiqued his musical abilities. "Do you really want to be a singer?" Babs asked, a note of incredulity in her voice. "I wouldn't quit your night job. »

Norman Reedus to Publish Book of 'Walking Dead' Fans' Daryl Dixon Art (Photos)

15 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT

Rick may be the star of the show, but if audience obsession is any indication, Daryl is currently the fan favorite character on "The Walking Dead." Now, the actor behind the crossbow-wielding badass is set to self-publish a book of artwork inspired by the character.

The tome, titled "Thanks For All The Niceness," is a collection of Daryl-centric artwork created by "Walking Dead" fans, including "The Norman/Daryl archetype [depicted] in tattoo designs, cakes, pencil sketches, mosaics and more," according to Reedus's website.

"'Thanks For All The Niceness' is Norman's way to show his gratitude in a compilation of artwork made by his fans," the site says. " ... Norman selected over 100 fascinating pieces that appear in this beautifully designed book. It's real art made by real people for real people."

The site also notes that most of the book's proceeds will be donated to charity, specifically the Bachmann Strauss Dystonia and Parkinson Foundation. »
