Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Joins 'Suicide Squad' as Killer Croc

13 hours ago

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje may be suiting up for yet another superhero movie: According to TheWrap, he'll play Killer Croc in "Suicide Squad."

The site reports that Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who played dual roles in Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World," is switching comics allegiances and will portray reptilian Batman baddie Killer Croc (alias: Waylon Jones) in the DC comics supervillain team-up flick. The actor and studio Warner Bros. declined to comment on TheWrap's report.

If true, Akinnuoye-Agbaje's casting would be yet another big get for the ensemble, which is already stacked with stars. The "Lost" and "Oz" alum would re-team with his "Concussion" co-star Will Smith, who plays Deadshot.

The rest of the "Squad" cast includes Jared Leto (The Joker), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), and Jay Hernandez (El Diablo). TheWrap reports that Jesse Eisenberg is also expected to reprise »

The New 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Trailer Is Basically 'Fast and Furious: Apocalypse Edition' (Video)

13 hours ago

A new, bats--t insane trailer for "Mad Max: Fury Road" is here, and like the flick's other teasers before it, it's full of explosions, car chases, and creepy dudes in masks and chains -- all seasoned with an apocalyptic flavor.

This time around, the clip focuses more on the villains, led by Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), who straps on a horrifying teeth-filled mask as he makes odd proclamations before screaming masses. He's also consumed by the need to recapture a group of comely lasses who have escaped his clutches.

Leading the charge against him are Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy, with the latter explaining what's driving him to fight back.

"As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken," he intones. "It was hard to know who was more crazy: me, or everyone else."

If we had to go out on a limb, we'd guess "everyone else, »

Fox Renews 'New Girl' for Season 5

15 hours ago

"New Girl" has charmed the execs at Fox, and is sticking around for a little while longer.

TVLine reports that the network has renewed the sitcom for a fifth season, which has already begun production to accommodate star Zooey Deschanel's pregnancy (which will not be written into the show). The series returns from a brief hiatus tonight.

"Four seasons in, 'New Girl' continues to be one of the smartest and most relatable comedies on television," said Fox entertainment president David Madden in a statement. "The writing is razor-sharp, the ensemble is consistently hilarious, and we couldn't be more proud of... the entire 'New Girl' team. We absolutely love this show and we're so excited to bring it back for Season Five."

Coming up in the last batch of season four episodes, "Saturday Night Live" star Taran Killam will guest star as a love interest for Jess, »

ABC Family Orders 'The Mortal Instruments' Series 'Shadowhunters'

16 hours ago

After flopping at the box office, "The Mortal Instruments" is getting new life as a TV series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC Family has ordered "Shadowhunters," based on the novels by Cassandra Clare, straight to series, with the adaptation eyed for 13-episode first season. THR reported back in October that production company Constantin Film wanted to turn the franchise into a "high-end drama" series in order to "go deeper and explore this world in greater detail and depth" than a film franchise could.

The move is also financial, since the 2013 big screen adaptation, "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," starring Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, only accrued $31 million at the domestic box office, cancelling plans for a movie sequel, "City of Ashes."

As in the film, "Shadowhunters" will center around Clary Fray, who discovers on her 18th birthday that she comes from a long line of human-angel hybrids »

'The Breakfast Club': Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy Look Back 30 Years Later (Exclusive)

18 hours ago

Last week the Internet had a collective heart attack as it became apparent that the anniversary of the day that "The Breakfast Club" is supposed to take place happened 31 years earlier. Of course, "The Breakfast Club" is a movie and not a historical document (one that came out 30 years ago), but that doesn't matter. Because talking about John Hughes's immortal classic is fun and people will do it at every conceivable juncture.

"The Breakfast Club," of course, starred Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy, as a group of disparate teens united for a Saturday's worth of detention (Paul Gleason very memorably essayed the role of the meddling principle -- "I make over $30,000 a year!"). Recently, to celebrate the movie's anniversary and commemorate the newly released (and truly incredible deluxe edition Blu-ray package), the film held a pair of screenings in Austin, Texas, as »

Don't Mess With Melissa McCarthy in New 'Spy' Trailer

18 hours ago

Can't imagine Melissa McCarthy as a deadly and dangerous spy? Well, she can have "Cagney" (left fist) and "Lacey" (right fist) explain it to you!

In a new, longer "Spy" trailer, McCarthy transforms from a mousy, desk-bound CIA analyst to full-on Bond. She's tapped to lead a mission after the identities of the CIA's field operatives are discovered by villain Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne). Everyone, from her boss (Allison Janney) to a fellow agent (Jason Statham), doubts her ability to rise to the occasion, but this is Melissa McCarthy, folks! She's about to kick ass and take names.

"Spy" opens in theaters June 5.

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Most Couples Sizzle and Few Fizzle on Latin Night

19 hours ago

It's Latin Night on "Dancing with the Stars," dance fans, and I was preparing myself for a night of slightly raunchy choreography. I'm so happy to say, it wasn't like that at all. Even the great opening number (choreographed again by Mandy Moore) and the post-break in-betweeners have more actual dancing and less strutting and posing than they did last season.

Tom Bergeron is his usual hysterical self, and even Erin Andrews is getting more comfortable with the gig, getting some good jokes in. At week three, the judges are getting pickier, and the contestants have come down a little after last week's stellar round. But they've all rallied pretty well, and some dancers are still leading the pack.

Let's check out My Top 5:

Rumer & Val's Disco Salsa: Rumer and Val start the night off with a bang and a smoking hot Disco Salsa. She's awesome, and clearly fearless, »

'Masterminds' Trailer: Zach Galifianakis Pulls Off the Heist of the Century

19 hours ago

Sometimes, less (brains) is more (money). At least, that's the case in the new trailer for the upcoming comedy "Masterminds."

Zach Galifianakis stars as a rather dim-witted armored truck driver who gets in league with a rather dim-witted criminal (Owen Wilson) to rob $17 million from a bank. The story is based on true events that took place in North Carolina, and the movie is directed by Jared Hess, so the movie seems to have some of that quirky "Napoleon Dynamite" feel to it.

"Masterminds" is definitely stuffed with comedy talent, with Kristen Wiig as Galifianakis's love interest and Jason Sudeikis as a rather dim-witted hitman. The movie opens in theaters August 7.

Best of Late Night TV: Vin Diesel Talks 'Furious 7,' Helen Mirren Sucks Helium, 'Celebrity Cell Phone Profile' (Video)

23 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.

Claire Danes, David Beckham, and Bob Odendirk were all on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Monday night. Claire talked about how she can be a bossy dancer when she's drunk. David talked about how his son Brooklyn has a job at a small French coffee shop in London; he also shared the story of Brooklyn's first date on Valentine's Day when the kid was 14, and Victoria made David stay in the restaurant and watch them. Bob talked about "Better Call Saul" and how he can now make a perfect Cinnabon. (Prove it - send one this way!) The trio also played Celebrity Cell Phone Profile - before the show, »

'Spectre' Producers on Blofeld, Idris Elba as 007, and Who's Singing the Theme Song

30 March 2015 1:00 PM, PDT

Over the weekend, we were in Mexico City on the set of the next James Bond outing "Spectre." This film marks the fourth time that Daniel Craig has inhabited the role of 007 and the second collaboration between Craig and his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes. During the last phase of our trip, we were offered a special treat: a roundtable sit down with the longtime shepherds of the James Bond franchise: producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Broccoli is, of course, the daughter of 007 producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli and is Wilson's step brother (Wilson wrote several of the 007 movies, including "The Living Daylights," which also partially took place in Mexico).

The trailer for "Spectre" having premiered just hours before, we had a lot of questions for the producing team (and surprisingly, they only refused to answer some). In our conversation, they teased the connection between "Skyfall" and "Spectre" (and to »

Disney Is Working on a Live-Action 'Mulan' Remake, Too: Report

30 March 2015 10:15 AM, PDT

It's no "Bambi," but Disney may already have already set its next animated flick due for a live-action reboot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio wants to develop a live-action version of "Mulan," its 1998 film centered around the titular ancient Chinese girl, who disguises herself as a man to take her ailing father's place in battle. Disney has already reportedly purchased a script by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that features the same Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, which inspired the original animated flick, THR writes.

While "Mulan"'s box office receipts were modest by Disney standards -- it pulled in around $304 million internationally -- the studio's recent success with live-action adaptations of its previous flicks has proven irresistibly lucrative. "Cinderella," starring Lily James, has raked in $336.2 million worldwide since its bow three weeks ago, and last year's "Maleficent," featuring newly-minted Kids' Choice Award-winner Angelina Jolie, hauled in a whopping $758.4 million. »

NBC Sets 'The Wiz' as Next Live Musical, Featuring Cirque du Soleil

30 March 2015 9:35 AM, PDT

NBC is set to ease on down the road with its next live musical, with the network announcing Monday that it will stage an adaptation of "The Wiz" in December -- with a special assist.

NBC revealed that "The Wiz" will once again be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (the duo behind the network's previous live efforts, "Sound of Music Live!" and "Peter Pan Live!," and the past three Oscars telecasts). But this year, the network is pulling out all the stops for the broadcast, which will also feature a collaboration with acrobatic troupe Cirque du Soleil.

And the ambitious plans don't stop there: After the live staging airs on NBC in December, the show will then move to Broadway for the 2016-2017 season. Tony winner and Broadway veteran Harvey Fierstein ("Mrs. Doubtfire," "La Cage aux Folles," "Hairspray") will work on adapting the show's original book by William F. Brown, »

Elizabeth Olsen Relied on 'Weird Dance Moves' to Bring Scarlet Witch to Life

30 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT

What's so fun about talking to someone like Elizabeth Olsen about something as huge and important as "Avengers: Age of Ultron," is that it's clear she's not used to not be able to talk about stuff. The star, who famously starred in "Godzilla" last summer, which had an air of mystery but nothing like the behind-several-locked-doors secrecy of a Marvel movie, seemed genuinely befuddled, as the tried answering question after dweeby question without spoiling anything or getting herself (or others) in trouble. It was one of the more endearing qualities of a movie star made almost exclusively of endearing qualities.

In "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Olsen plays Scarlet Witch, a character more closely associated with the X-Men, but clearly a big part of Avengers lore as well. Her human name is Wanda Maximoff, the twin sister of Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver (played in the film by Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Instead of having powers involving punching, »

Post-Surgery, Angelina Jolie Gives Powerful Kids' Choice Awards Speech (Video)

30 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT

In her first public appearance since announcing she had surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes, Angelina Jolie delivered an empowering speech at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards this weekend.

Jolie, who snagged the favorite movie villain statuette at the ceremony for her titular performance in "Maleficent," took the stage to thank her fans, and tell the young crowd how important it was to follow their own path in life.

"I want to say when I was little, like Maleficent, I was told that I was different-and I felt out of place, and too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in," the actress said. "And then one day I realized something, something I hope you all realize: Different is good."

Jolie revealed last week in a New York Times op-ed that she had preventive surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian »

'Fear the Walking Dead' Teaser: A Virus Has Hit Los Angeles (Video)

30 March 2015 7:50 AM, PDT

The upcoming "Walking Dead" companion series, "Fear the Walking Dead," aired its first promo during the original show's fifth season finale Sunday night, offering fans a short tease of what's to come on the new drama.

The 15-second clip features a radio newscaster warning Los Angeles residents to get their flu shots, since there have been "reports in five states of a strange virus going around." Of course, longtime "Walking Dead" fans know that this ultimately leads to the zombie outbreak, but "Fear" takes place in a slightly earlier timeline than the first series -- and conventional wisdom says that all sick people should do is simply get some rest and "take care of yourself."

There are a couple quick glimpses at walkers in the clip, first a pack of them roaming through what looks like a street carnival, and another, longer shot of a lone zombie shambling toward the frame. »

30 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Interstellar"

The Blu-ray edition of Christopher Nolan's sprawling space pic is packed with featurettes about the making of "Interstellar," including a 50-minute special narrated by Matthew McConaughey about the scientific research behind the story.

"The Imitation Game"

Benedict Cumberbatch's star turn as Alan Turing doesn't quite elevate this pic above Oscar bait, but it's big and glossy and worth a look.

"Wild"

Reese Witherspoon stars in the big-screen adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's best-selling memoir about hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. Witherspoon was nominated for an Oscar for her performance, as was Laura Dern, who has an extra-special role as Cheryl's late mom.

Dwayne Johnson Kicks Ass as 'Bambi' in This Hilarious 'SNL' Spoof (Video)

30 March 2015 6:50 AM, PDT

Disney's recent trend of turning its animated classics into live-action flicks took a dark turn on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, with the show re-imagining forest fable "Bambi" as a kickass action movie starring Dwayne Johnson and his "Furious 7" castmates.

Johnson, who hosted "SNL" for the fourth time, starred as the titular baby deer, whose image was remade as a cigar-chomping vigilante with an axe to grind against the hunters who murdered his mother. Johnson sports giant ears, wispy hair, and a painted nose to bring the character to life -- and a whole lot of guns.

But the true star of the sketch may be Taran Killam, who plays Vin Diesel as Thumper in a demented, mumble-tastic performance that's eerily similar to the real actor's stilted delivery. His cockeyed ears help complete the hilarious look.

Check out the clip -- and watch out for the excellent "Deer X-ing »
