Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Are Getting Divorced

12 hours ago

Rumors have swirled about the state of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's marriage for years, and now, sadly, the couple is officially calling it quits.

People reports that Affleck and Garner are getting divorced, following 10 years of marriage. They celebrated their anniversary on June 29.

In a joint statement to People, the couple said, "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."

According to TMZ, the official filing of divorce papers is still a ways off. The couple are still working out custody terms -- they're seeking joint custody of their three children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3 -- and division of property, »

'Magic Mike' Gets Stripped Down to Nothing in This Honest Trailer

12 hours ago

The trailer for "Magic Mike" promised a party and a lot of men in thongs, and though it delivered the thong quota, the party feeling wasn't quite there. Unless the parties you go to always start off fun and then end in depression. But do we love it any less? No, because there are still plenty of shirtless men to keep our attention. »

Does Anyone Want a 'White Chicks' Sequel? Marlon Wayans May Make It Happen

13 hours ago

Long-awaited sequels to early 2000s comedies have been springing up left and right lately. So why not "White Chicks," too?

That was apparently the thinking behind Marlon Wayans's recent Instagram post, where he made a mock-up of a potential poster for "White Chicks 2," and asked fans if they were interested in a sequel to the 2004 comedy. The comedian said that if the photo got 300,000 likes, he'd consider making the follow-up his next project.

Show of hands who wants to see the sequel to this? 300,000 likes and I may make this our next movie

A photo posted by Marlon Wayans (@marlonwayans) on Jun 28, 2015 at 1:39am Pdt

It turns out that "White Chicks" fans are pretty passionate about the film, and soon, the Instagram post amassed over 400,000 likes (and an additional 700,000 -- and counting -- on Facebook), proving that, apparently, demand is indeed high for another round. But just how »

David Ayer Hired an On-Set Therapist for the 'Suicide Squad' Cast

14 hours ago

If you thought Jared Leto sending creepy, in-character gifts to his "Suicide Squad" castmates was dark, just wait until you hear about the on-set therapist that director David Ayer hired to help actors cope with their alter egos' evil deeds.

That's the latest scoop from Adam Beach, who plays Slipknot in the flick. In an interview with E! News, Beach said that Ayer has encouraged actors to be as method as possible while portraying their villainous characters (see Leto's antics above), and that includes taking a more personal, psychological approach.

"David Ayer is about realism," Bech explained to E!. "So if your character is tormented, he wants you to torment yourself. He wants the real thing."

That type of intense preparation for the production has the potential to lead to some seriously twisted thinking, Beach said, and that's why Ayer has hired someone to look out for his cast's mental health. »

Alex Trebek Rapped the 'Fresh Prince' Theme on 'Jeopardy!'

15 hours ago

Alex Trebek isn't shy about showing off his rapping skills on "Jeopardy!," and the veteran host was at it again on Monday when he offered up his own version of the theme song from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."

Trebek wasn't just freestyling, though -- the verse he spat came about thanks to a category about TV shows. The clue invited contestants to guess which show's theme song contained the lyrics, "I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and I yelled to the cabbie, 'Yo, homes, smell ya later!'"

Naturally, Trebek couldn't pass up an opportunity to show off his flow, and did a rendition of the verse that would have made Will Smith proud. You can tell the contestants got a kick out of it, too, as they can be seen smirking once the host finishes reading/rapping the clue.

Check out Trebek in all his glory below. »

Sorry, a 'Back to the Future' Remake Isn't Going to Happen

16 hours ago

With "Back to the Future" celebrating its 30th anniversary, and the recent success of various reboots and sequels to '80s and '90s films, it's natural to ponder the possibility of a remake of the 1985 classic.

To that, director Robert Zemeckis says: Over my dead body!

In an interview with the U.K. Telegraph, Zemeckis was very clear about the prospects of another "Back to the Future" film.

"Oh, God no. That can't happen until both Bob [Gale] and I are dead," he said. "And then I'm sure they'll do it, unless there's a way our estates can stop it."

Zemeckis and Gale wrote "Back to the Future" together, and the former directed it. Their contracts on the film give them veto rights over any related films for as long as they both live. That's not the case on another Zemeckis-directed movie, "Romancing the Stone," a remake of which has »

'BoJack Horseman' Season 2 Trailer Celebrates More Regrettable Life Choices

16 hours ago

Hurray! And with no question mark whatsoever for the return of the apparently "hard to describe" comedy "BoJack Horseman."

Netflix debuted the trailer for the second season of its original show, and it's as wonderfully biting, snarky, booze-filled, and dark as ever. BoJack (Will Arnett) is still a washed-up alcoholic actor who keeps making a "series of regrettable life choices." This season, he's got a new love interest in a pretty owl named Wanda Pierce (Lisa Kudrow), and a real job starring as Secretariat in a movie. It's hard to imagine BoJack not screwing up either.

Judging by the trailer, the second season will be more of the same darkly funny stuff as last season - already we've got BoJack grousing over cantaloupe, screaming to "get alcohol into my mouth," and running over a deer with his car.

Watch the trailer now.

Paul Rudd Faces a Trial By Water in This Cool 'Ant-Man' Clip

17 hours ago

Bigger isn't always better, but in the case of a bathtub full of water, being the size of an ant is a terrifying prospect.

Marvel released a clip from the upcoming "Ant-Man," and it's a really cool look at what happens when thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) puts on the suit he stole from Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). Standing in the bathtub, he activates the suit - and instantly transforms into the size of an ant!

As Scott tries to get his bearings, Pym speaks into his helmet. "The world sure seems different from down here, Scott." Oh, yes, especially when Scott's friend turns on the faucet, unleashing a tidal wave of water!

This isn't a trial by fire; it's a trial by water! As the first real look at Rudd using the suit, the clip gives us a very tantalizing glimpse at what could potentially be an awesome movie. »

First Look at 'Star Trek 3,' Plus Director Justin Lin Confirms Title

18 hours ago

Live long and prosper ... in the great beyond!

"Star Trek 3" director Justin Lin shared the first photo from the set of the latest film in the franchise, plus confirmed the movie's title. The image is of an uniform patch, which reads "Starfleet: United Federation of Planets." And when Lin shared it on Twitter, he also hashtagged it with the title, "Star Trek Beyond":

Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond #Llap pic.twitter.com/VZh9YvJgqA

- Justin Lin (@trailingjohnson) June 29, 2015 That confirms what screenwriter and cast member Simon Pegg revealed a few weeks ago. The patch and title all add to the rumors about "Star Trek 3" - that the Starship Enterprise will finally move away from Earth and into deep space.

The first two films, 2009's "Star Trek" and 2013's "Star Trek Into Darkness," were predominantly set on or near Earth. Now, "Star Trek Beyond" looks »

Paul Feig Shares First Look at 'Ghostbusters' Proton Pack

19 hours ago

A ghostbuster needs something to bust ghosts with, right? That's where the all-important proton pack comes in, and director Paul Feig shared a first look photo at the essential tool in his "Ghostbusters" reboot.

A day after unveiling the uniforms that Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones will wear, Feig posted an image of the proton pack to Twitter:

#whatyougonnashoot pic.twitter.com/sGsYSgS1Io

- Paul Feig (@paulfeig) June 30, 2015 Like the uniforms, the pack is very similar to the original, with a few little updates. It looks dirty and worn, which indicates heavy use -- ghostbusting is not a dainty business!

In the reboot, Wiig and McCarthy are authors who write a book claiming ghosts are real. They're laughed out of academia, until ghosts actually do invade Manhattan. So, who's the world gonna call? The two women, who team up with McKinnon and Jones to save the world. »

'Apollo 13' 20th Anniversary: 20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Tom Hanks Classic

19 hours ago

Not all Hollywood blockbusters are about rampaging dinosaurs, time-traveling cyborgs or spandex-clad heroes.

Some big-budget movies get by just fine focusing on real-life moments of danger and drama. "Apollo 13" is one of those films.

Released 20 years ago today on June 30, 1995, here are 20 things you need to know about how director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks worked to deliver one of the best space movies in the history of always.

1. It may be one of the most iconic lines in movie history, but "Houston, we have a problem" isn't exactly what was said during the mission. Jim Lovell actually said, "Houston, we've had a problem." The edit was made for the film because "we've had" implies that the problem is over.

2. On that note, Jim Lovell wasn't the only astronaut to speak that famous line. Jack Swigert first radioed in with "Okay, Houston -- we've had a problem here. »

11 Times Janis Ian Was the Best Part of 'Mean Girls'

19 hours ago

How could you not love Janis Ian? Lizzy Caplan's "Mean Girls" character may not have worn pink on Wednesdays, but she did utter some of the most quotable lines ever. Regina George life-sabotage aside, she is a kick-ass pal (do your friends make prize-winning paintings for you?) and a fun purple tuxedo-wearing chick any highschooler would be lucky to know. Kevin Gnapoor would agree -- Janis Ian was one the best parts of "Mean Girls." Here are 11 moments that prove it.

Best of Late Night TV: Emilia Clarke's, Like, Perfect Valley Girl Accent, Marshawn Lynch's Skittles Dive

21 hours ago

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.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Conan" are the only late night talk shows to air new episodes this week -- besides Jon Stewart's countdown to the end of his run on "The Daily Show." Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers and James Corden are all on repeats. But never fear, 'cause the Khaleesi is here to entertain us!

British actress Emilia Clarke -- aka Sarah Connor in the new "Terminator Genisys" and Queen Dany Targaryen on "Game of Thrones" -- was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night, and discussed shooting the new "Terminator" movie in New Orleans. Apparently the house she was staying at -- rented from her GoT co-star Michiel Huisman »

As if we already weren't ecstatic about the all-female reboot of "Ghostbusters," director Paul Feig just gave us another reason to be.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Sequel Gets Awesome 'Vol. 2' Title

29 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT

Taking a cue from the first film's killer soundtrack, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" sequel now has an awesome title.

Director James Gunn confirmed on Twitter that the follow-up flick will be called "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," a nod to the title of the "Guardians" soundtrack (and key plot point), "Awesome Mix Vol. 1." This can only mean that "Awesome Mix Vol. 2" -- which Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) discovered at the end of the first movie -- will play a similarly significant role in the "Guardians" sequel (or at the very least, just be a great collection of songs).

Yes, the official title for the @Guardians sequel is Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. Nice detective work, @colliderfrosty, etc! You got us!

- James Gunn (@JamesGunn) June 29, 2015 In a follow-up post on Facebook, Gunn wrote that some fans had actually already figured out the title, thanks to some super-sleuthing after Gunn »

The New 'Spider-Man' Movie Is Inspired by John Hughes, 'Inside Out'

29 June 2015 9:15 AM, PDT

Even though it will be the third iteration of the character, Marvel wants you to know that the newest version of "Spider-Man," starring Tom Holland, will be like nothing you've seen from the McU before, thanks in large part to its unique influences.

In an interview with Birth.Movies.Death., Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that the creative team behind the character's reboot is taking inspiration from an unlikely source: '80s teen movie icon John Hughes. Speaking to the plethora of supporting characters from the Spidey comics that have yet to make it to the big screen, Feige said that fans can expect more members of Peter Parker's social circle (and the awkward teenage antics that come with them) to become part of the McU canon.

"It's the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters, that are interesting," Feige told B.M.D. " ... [W]e haven't seen »

There's Going to Be a Parody Musical About 'The O.C.,' Bitch

29 June 2015 8:30 AM, PDT

Fresh off the success -- and Reese Witherspoon approval -- of "Cruel Intentions: The Musical" comes word that another beloved piece of pop culture is getting the parody stage show treatment.

Variety reports that teen soap "The O.C." will take the stage for a one-night-only musical extravaganza, also produced by the "Cruel Intentions" parody team, and will apparently offer a meta take on the early 2000s, Southern California-set show. According to the trade, "O.C." creator Josh Schwartz will be a character in the production, though he won't be singing.

The role of Schwartz has already been cast, as have the parts of Cohen family matriarch Kirsten and Marissa's high school flame Luke (who uttered the show's instantly-iconic catchphrase, "Welcome to The O.C., bitch!"). No word yet on who has taken those roles, and who the production is eyeing for the rest of the bunch. (Could Adam Brody just appear as Seth Cohen? »

5 Things You Need to Know Before You See 'Terminator: Genisys'

29 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT

(Spoiler Warning: Turn back now if you don't want to know anything about the plot of Arnold's new "Terminator" movie. I mean, more than what the trailers have already spoiled.)

One of the most famous lines uttered by Arnold Schwarzenegger's murder-powered cyborg is "I'll be back." And on July 1, the T-800 will once again be true to his word when "Terminator: Genisys" hits theaters.

The fifth "Terminator" movie aims to robo-punch you right in the nostalgia center, much like "Jurassic World" did, with its twisty, time-travel story that pays homage to the franchise's first two films (while completely, and wisely, ignoring the existence of meh entries "Rise of the Machines" and "Salvation.")

To prepare you for another trip to the land of Skynet, here are all the things you need to know about "Genisys," which picks up where James Cameron's original 1984 film left off.

Jimmy Fallon Is Fine (and Tweeting One-Handed) After Injury

29 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT

On Friday, Jimmy Fallon gave fans a scare when he checked into the hospital for emergency surgery on his hand following a mysterious injury. Today, the host is fine, taking to Twitter to reveal that he's recovering comfortably -- and tweeting with one hand -- thanks to a combination of drugs, Jell-o, and excellent medical staff.

Fallon posted a series of updates to Twitter over the past few days, first showing off a big bandage on his left hand, then explaining what happened: He tripped and caught his fall on a nearby table, but his wedding ring latched onto the table and "almost ripped my finger off."
