'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 3: 'Edward Mordrake, Pt. 1'

5 hours ago

It's entirely appropriate that "American Horror Story: Freak Show" would have two episodes devoted to Halloween, that time of year when everyone gets to play pretend that they're whomever they dream of (or fear) being. As Jimmy says over Meep's grave, the dude loved Halloween. "It was the one day he felt like he would have been one of them... But he wasn't one of them. He was better," Jimmy said, adding that Meep would occasionally sneak the odd chicken head into some unsuspecting trick-or-treater's bag. What a rascal that Meep was. Poor Meep.

Tonight's episode introduced the last few main characters: Emma Roberts as the spiritualist/grifter Maggie Esmerelda; Denis O'Hare as Maggie's partner in crime, Stanley; and last but definitely not least, Wes Bentley as the two-faced monster Edward Mordrake. Mordrake is a dapper gentleman ghost with fine manners and many talents; he also has a demonic face »

Here's the Official 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Trailer (Video)

8 hours ago

By now, you've seen the leaked "Avengers: Age of Ultron" trailer, but now Marvel has unleashed a gorgeous, high-res version, so you can soak in Ultron, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver in all their vengeance-filled, HD glory.

The trailer, which was originally meant to debut with next week's episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," is far darker, bleaker, and -- dare we say -- deadlier than 2012's "Avengers," with James Spader delivering the creepy goods with his over-the-top, nightmare-inducing voice work for new uber-nemesis Ultron.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" -- written and directed by Joss Whedon, and starring Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth -- hits theaters May 1, 2015.

The trailer features our heroes in the most dire of situations, surrounded by death, destruction, and a very creepy Ultron, voiced by a gleefully nihilistic James Spader. So stop reading and watch it already.

Bitsie Tulloch Says 'Grimm' Fans 'Will Lose Their Minds Over' What Juliette Goes Through In Season 4

13 hours ago

"Grimm" is about to return for its 4th Season, and if you watch the beloved fantasy series you're probably chomping at the bit to find out what's gonna go down after a very intense, drama-filled Season 3 finale.

Moviefone had the chance to chat with one of the show's stars, Bitsie Tulloch, who plays veterinarian Juliette Silverton, girlfriend to detective and "Grimm" Nick Burkhardt. Bitsie opened up about a "darker" Season 4 (there will be uber-scary new wesen creatures...), the future of Nick and Juliette, and what it will be like now that Nick has (gasp!) lost his supernatural powers.

Oh, she also compared her character to Willow (Alyson Hannigan) in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," which made us love her even more.

Moviefone: Fans are eagerly awaiting new "Grimm" after last season's crazy finale. What can you reveal about Season 4?

Bitsie Tulloch: Well, there were 8,000 cliffhangers in the season finale for »

Check Out Elijah Wood and Peter Jackson in This Commercial for Air New Zealand

14 hours ago

You have to be fairly self-confident to title your safety video "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made," but Air New Zealand isn't exaggerating. This "Hobbit"-themed video has everything, from flight attendants dressed up like elves to cameos by Elijah Wood, Peter Jackson, and Sylvester McCoy. Plus, Orcs! The Shire! Cool pipe music! If this is what air travel looks for Kiwis, sign us up.

New Zealand's tourism has enjoyed quite a boost from Peter Jackson's movies, and Jackson's own Weta Workshop has also contributed a great deal to the local economy. There's also a giant freaking Gollum sculpture at the Wellington International Airport in New Zealand, thanks to the wizards of Weta.

The video was directed by Taika Waititi, who wrote the original script for Disney's upcoming (and awesome-sounding!) film "Moana." He also wrote and directed the vampire comedy "What We Do in the Shadows," which stars »

Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, and John Goodman Get Tough in 'The Gambler' Red Band Trailer

16 hours ago

Put on your headphones before checking out this trailer for "The Gambler," because it's got a red band for a reason.

This remake of the 1974 crime classic stars Mark Wahlberg as a college professor with a bad gambling habit. (Hey, you've gotta pay off those school loans somehow - those degrees don't come cheap.) In this trailer, Jim is getting a stern dressing down from a loan shark played by John Goodman. The crux of this advice is to get rich enough to be able to say "F**k you" to anyone who wants you to do something you don't want to do. Which is sort of the American dream, right?

This proves to be some shady advice from the looks of what happens to Jim throughout the trailer. Plus, he's got to keep all of this secret from his mom (Jessica Lange) and his girlfriend (Brie Larson).

Listen to 'Annie' Anthem 'You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile'

17 hours ago

The more we see and hear about the remake of "Annie" with Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx, the more we like it... Mostly.

First, we had some questions about Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan, but okay, we'll roll with it. Then there was that emoji video; the less said about that, the better. And now there's this version of "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile."

Power pop singer and producer Sia is contributing three songs to the soundtrack; you can hear her take on "It's a Hard Knock Life" in the background of the second trailer of the movie. However, this stand-alone version of "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile," which is sung by Sia herself, gives us pause. Granted, '80s kids who grew up on the Aileen Quinn version are going to be hard to please - especially now that we're cranky adults! - but this electro-flavored, »

Sarah Jessica Parker Angers West Villagers With 'Satc' Stoop Shoe Photo Shoot

18 hours ago

Cupcakes are so passé, the Meatpacking District is stale, and no sane writer can sustain him or herself on one column every few months for a glossy mag. That doesn't mean the "Sex and the City" dream doesn't live on! Or, in the case of some West Village residents, the "Sex and the City" nightmare.

Carrie Bradshaw's building is apparently off limits to tourists, with a sign and chain and everything barring gawkers from posing on the famous stoop, but Sarah Jessica Parker used it for what seems to be an unauthorized shoot anyway. She posted an Instagram pic of herself with shoes from her Sjp Collection carefully arranged on Carrie's old stoop, and the official Sjp Collection account has even more damning evidence: a photo of heels cheekily arranged in front of a sign reading "Do Not go on staircase please" and one of Sjp leaning over the chain to arrange them. »

Paul Reubens Says a 'Pee-wee Herman' Movie Announcement Is 'Imminent'

19 hours ago

As if we weren't already excited about the fancy new Blu-ray box set of "Pee-wee's Playhouse"! Paul Reubens was chatting with Rolling Stone about the remastered and spiffed-up release of his incredible TV show when he let slip a little bit of movie news.

Reubens said, "There's going to be a big announcement any minute now... It's been months and months of being right on the verge of being announced...I thought something was going to go public yesterday, actually, and that you'd be the first person I'd be talking about this with. But I'm thinking there will be something made public very soon. It's going to get made shortly after the new year. I wish I could tell you about it right now, because...I mean, it's amazing. It's going to be amazing. It think it first got leaked four years ago or so that the movie was going to be made, »

'Game of Thrones' Natalie Dormer to Star in Creepy Thriller 'The Forest'

20 hours ago

Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell in "Game of Thrones," has signed on for her first starring role, and it sounds awesome. Dormer and her fabulous smirk will star in "The Forest," which is about a woman who goes searching for her twin in Japan's infamous Aokigahara Forest.

Here comes the creepy part. Aokigahara Forest is also known as the Suicide Forest, and it's the one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide. According to Atlas Obscura, "Japanese spiritualists believe that the suicides committed in the forest have permeated Aokigahara's trees, generating paranormal activity and preventing many who enter from escaping the forest's depths. Complicating matters further is the common experience of compasses being rendered useless by the rich deposits of magnetic iron in the area's volcanic soil." Yikes. Naturally, our protagonist meets a whole bunch of angry ghosts in the forest during her journey.

'Fall' Trailer: Roman Catholic Priest's Life Shattered By Letter (Video)

21 hours ago

In "Fall," Father Sam Ryan (Michael Murphy), an aging Roman Catholic Priest living contentedly at a Niagara Falls parish, receives a letter forcing his complacent life into a downward spiral.

The letter, from "Christopher," confronts him about an incident that happened 40 years ago. Father Sam was a young, charismatic priest, serving a remote Northern Ontario parish. Christopher was a 14-year-old adolescent whom Sam mentored. The letter asks Father Sam for the truth: what did take place all those years ago? Were lines blurred or crossed? What choices were made?

Article Continues After Poster! (Click for full-sized image)

Forgiveness, redemption and sin are the dominant themes of Terrance Odette's ("Heater," "Saint Monica") latest feature. All the characters encountered by Father Sam -- through his parish duties and from his suppressed past -- force him into deeper reflection: Chelsea, a restless bride-to-be; Michael, a repentant addict; Reza, a gay Iranian grieving his recently deceased mother; Sheila, »

Best of Late Night TV: Bill Murray's Tinder Talk, John Leguizamo's Fight With Patrick Swayze (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.

Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman and Seth Meyers are still on vacation with repeats, but don't worry: Bill Murray and Tenacious D were around to save Tuesday night.

Bill Murray was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" -- and you have to pay close attention to his amazing shirt with what looks like divers on it. His outfit is just everything. Jimmy shared all the great parenting advice Bill gave him before Jk and his wife welcomed their child. "I don't know much," Bill said, "but I talk a lot about what I do know." That's how it should be. He has six boys, so he should know. He shared a good »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Soundtrack Will Get a Cassette Release (Photo)

21 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT

Taking a cue from Star-Lord himself, Marvel is bringing the cassette back into fashion by planning a tape release of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" soundtrack, "Awesome Mix Vol. 1."

While the soundtrack was previously available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats, everyone who's seen the flick knows that it originated in cassette form, as a gift from Peter Quill's mother to the young boy. As he grows into Star-Lord, he still cherishes the tape, which he plays on his personal Walkman and his spaceship. (The latter serving as the platform to unleash dancing baby Groot.)

Disney will release the cassette to coincide with Record Store Day's Black Friday event, exclusive to independent music retailers throughout the U.S. The tape will come with a free digital download of the mix.

Per Billboard, "It will be the first music cassette released by Disney since 2003. Disney has not announced how many copies »

New 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Teaser Pits Gale vs. Peeta (Video)

21 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT

While the love triangle between Katniss, Gale, and Peeta hasn't been the main focus of the "Hunger Games" films thus far, it's about to take a big leap forward in "Mockingjay," as the latest teaser proves.

The new clip features Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) watching in disbelief -- and relief -- as she sees Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) give an address on behalf of the Capitol, urging residents of Panem to "lay down their weapons immediately." While Katniss tries to reason with Gale (Liam Hemsworth) about why Peeta would side with the Capitol, her friend -- a bit jealous to see Katniss so happy about Peeta being alive, perhaps? -- isn't buying it.

"Everyone has a choice, Katniss, and I would rather die than say what he just said," Gale says.

Juicy stuff. We'll no doubt see more simmering sexual tension between the trio when "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 »

After 2 Seasons, FX Has Cancelled 'The Bridge'

21 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT

"The Bridge" has been cancelled by FX, the network announced Tuesday.

Despite a creative resurgence in its second season, "The Bridge," which starred Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir, didn't improve where it needed to the most: ratings. According to HitFix, showrunners were optimistic for a third season order from FX following the season two finale, but also had realistic expectations when it came to the size of the audience.

"Creatively they are very happy with the show. But as we all know it is a numbers game," showrunner Elwood Reid told HitFix at the time. "I really want a season three and hope I have a chance to keep telling those stories, because I can tell you I have just scratched the surface of this world and these characters."

HitFix reports that "The Bridge" production company Shine will try to shop the show elsewhere in hopes of resurrecting it on »

Babs Is Back! Barbara Walters Will Host 'Most Fascinating' Special Again

21 October 2014 8:15 AM, PDT

Despite retiring from broadcasting and claiming she was done with her annual "Most Fascinating People" special, Barbara Walters will once again return to our screens this year with her round-up of interesting celebs.

ABC has revealed that Babs will be back to host "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014," set to air on the network on December 14. Despite retiring from "The View" in May, following more than 50 years of broadcasting, Walters has continued to pop up on the network, interviewing the father of Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger in June, and appearing on the season premiere of "The View" last month.

It was no doubt Walters's familiar presence that prompted ABC to coax her out of retirement for the "Fascinating" special, which the network has revealed will include Oprah Winfrey, Neil Patrick Harris, Chelsea Handler, and Scarlett Johansson, among others.

Director James Wan Will Return for 'The Conjuring 2,' May Helm DC Superhero Flick

21 October 2014 7:45 AM, PDT

James Wan will scare the bejeezus out of audiences again, as Deadline reports the director will return to helm "The Conjuring 2."

Wan directed the first "Conjuring" flick, which was a hit for New Line, and execs were eager to bring him back for the follow-up. The sequel is set to begin production next summer, with an eye for a 2016 release. (The original fall 2015 release schedule was bumped to accommodate Wan's "Fast & Furious 7," which was delayed in the aftermath of star Paul Walker's sudden death in November 2013.)

"It was during the editing of 'Fast & Furious 7' that my brain started sparking ideas for 'The Conjuring' sequel," Wan told Deadline. "Taking a break from horror has allowed me to be creatively rejuvenated. I'm excited to tell the story of the next case-file of Ed & Lorraine Warren and expand on this world we've created."
