Don't Rule Out a 'Sons of Anarchy' Prequel

6 hours ago

"Sons of Anarchy" fans who are having a hard time coming to grips with the impending end of the FX biker drama got a bit of good news about their beloved show this week when creator Kurt Sutter hinted that he may write a "Sons" prequel series.

During a panel discussion at the Television Critics Association summer press tour Monday, Sutter said that he was still considering a planned prequel spinoff, though he cautioned that it wouldn't be anywhere near as long as "Sons"'s seven-season run.

EW reports:

"If I do the prequel, it will probably be a one-off," Sutter said, suggesting a 10-episode miniseries model. "I don't think it's a full blown five-season series."

While that may be a bit disappointing to diehard "Soa" fans, at least there's a glimmer of hope that the story will continue in some way, even if it's fleeting.

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay Are Making Your 'Manimal' Movie Dreams Come True

6 hours ago

Fans of the short-lived '80s TV series "Manimal" have something to roar about today: "Anchorman" vets Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are teaming up to produce a big screen adaptation of the cult show.

Deadline reports that Ferrell and McKay will co-produce the flick with Glen A. Larson, who co-produced the original NBC series. Per Deadline, "The original 1983 series starred Simon MacCorkindale as Dr. Jonathan Chase, a dashing and wealthy man raised in Africa who was also 'master of the secrets that divide man from animal.' It was cancelled after eight episodes, only to live on in the hearts of a devoted cult fandom."

The site also reports that the big screen adaptation will be a hybrid of live action and animation, and is being envisioned as "an action-comedy with heavy visual effects and animated elements."

"I think it's right down our alley, it's what we do," McKay »

We Can't Stop Looking at These Snazzy 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Living Portraits

7 hours ago

Continuing its spooky/slick viral marketing campaign, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" has revealed two new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits, depicting Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) in moving, 360-degree images.

The portraits are a riff on the One Panem ads that have served as both propaganda for President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and teaser trailers for "Mockingjay," and feature high-end fashion that's a perfect match for the Capitol Couture blog, which also offered similar promotions in the run-up to the debut of the second "Hunger Games" flick, "Catching Fire," last year.

Reinforcing the idea that Capitol citizens love powerful public figures, Capitol Couture refers to Hunger Games champions Peeta and Johanna as "cherished elite." And the idolization doesn't stop there. In describing the pair's ensembles, the online magazine makes a point to mention the victors' "quiet strength" and "stern ambiance" (Peeta), while also calling them "daring and »

Matt Lauer Made Rachel McAdams Watch Her 'The Notebook' Audition Tape and It Was Kinda Awkward (Video)

7 hours ago

Actress Rachel McAdams was put in an awkward spot during a recent visit to "Today," when she was unexpectedly confronted with her audition tape from "The Notebook," which just celebrated its 10th anniversary.

McAdams, who had stopped by to promote her new thriller "A Most Wanted Man," was caught off guard when a conversation with host Matt Lauer unexpectedly turned to her audition for the Nicholas Sparks weeper, the footage of which recently landed online. Lauer asked McAdams if it was strange to watch her younger self, and when the actress admitted she hadn't seen the tape -- "It would be weird," she said -- Lauer all too gleefully rolled the footage.

The scene shows a tearful McAdams arguing with an off-screen Ryan Gosling, and as the actress watched the clip, a split screen showed her covering her mouth in embarrassment and turning away from the footage.

This 'Insidious: Chapter 3' First Look Takes Us Back In (Terrifying) Time (Photo)

8 hours ago

The third installment in the "Insidious" series has officially kicked off production, and with it comes a first look image from the new film.

The photo shows the cast crowded into a small, barely-lit room, surrounded by chintzy furniture and clutter. The retro-styled patterns on the furniture suggest a '70s vibe, though there's no clear indication that that's the exact time period in which the movie takes place. If anything, at least one of the shabbily-dressed characters looks like a shut-in, so this could be her rarely visited -- and potentially haunted? -- abode.

Focus Features's official synopsis for the flick calls "Insidious: Chapter 3" "a twisted new tale of terror" that centers around "a teenage girl and her family, predating the haunting of the Lambert family in the earlier movies and revealing more mysteries of the otherworldly realm The Further." Writer-director Leigh Whannell tipped his hand about »

Reese Witherspoon in Two French-Canadian Toronto Film Festival Movies

8 hours ago

It's actually pretty common for movie stars to appear in more than one movie at the Toronto Film Festival. In the past, A-listers like George Clooney and Bradley Cooper have pulled double-duty, with two very different movies on the bill.

It seems like this year, Reese Witherspoon is offering us a double-dose of her movies. One is the much-anticipated "Wild," directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, and the other is "The Good Lie," directed by Philippe Falardeau. »

Sandra Bullock's Next Movie Will Tell the Tale of Tupperware Parties

8 hours ago

Oscar winner Sandra Bullock has lined up her next prestige project, and is set to star in a story about the woman who made Tupperware parties into the hot housewife craze of the 1950s and '60s.

The project, based on the book "Tupperware Unsealed" by Bob Kealing, focuses on Brownie Wise, a divorcee from Detroit who helped Earl Tupper and his then-flagging Tupperware business reach new heights with her ingenious plan to market the food storage containers. Deadline reports that the story will focus on how Wise convinced Tupper to let her take control of promoting the brand, and helped reinvigorate a company that is still at the top of its game today.

Per Deadline:

Wise was as savvy a businesswoman as they come and, in fact, was the first female ever featured on the cover of Business Week magazine.

Ethan Hawke Is One Cool Time Traveling Crime Fighter In the 'Predestination' Trailer (Video)

9 hours ago

What if you could catch bad guys ... before they did bad things?

That's the premise behind "Predestination," a film based on Robert Heinlein's 1959 short story "All You Zombies." Ethan Hawke stars as a "temporal agent" who uses time travel to right wrongs -- before they happen. Basically, it's part "Minority Report," part "Looper."

As he explains to a new recruit (Sarah Snook), "We prevent crime before it takes place." His main mission is to stop a mass murderer by the name of "The Fizzle Bomber."

The recently-released trailer hints at some mind-bending twists and Wtf-worthy moments. Unfortunately, we don't know when we'll get to unravel them, as there's no U.S. release date yet (it opens Aug. 28 in Australia).

Feast Your Eyes On the Action-Packed 'Star Wars Rebels' Extended Trailer (Video)

9 hours ago

In a galaxy far, far away, a rebellion is forming -- and with it, new heroes are emerging.

An extended trailer for DisneyXD's "Star Wars Rebels" provides an in-depth look at the animated series that takes place after the events of "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith."

The video gives us a better sense of the story and characters. As Obi-Wan Kenobi intones, the Republic has fallen and the Empire is hunting down any remaining Jedi. Ezra (voiced by Taylor Gray) is a young orphan who is taken under the wing of a surviving Jedi, Kanan (voice of Freddie Prinze, Jr.). They must face down rampaging hunters led by the Inquisitor (Jason Isaacs).

And though things look very bleak, well, we know there's a light at the end of the tunnel. "Our future is uncertain," Obi-Wan notes, "but in time, a new hope will emerge."

Toronto Film Festival 2014: Big Movies, Lineup Announced

10 hours ago

The Toronto Film Festival is coming back, big-time, for its 39th year.

Of the 13 and 46 special presentations announced, this initial lineup (there will be more announcements over the next several weeks) includes 37 world premieres from directors including Canadians Jean-Marc Vallée, David Cronenberg, Alan Rickman, and Chris Rock.

"Toronto can anticipate another remarkable lineup of films," said Handling. "Cinema's collective and transformative experience lives at the heart of our Festival -- a sentiment that inspires the global dialogue rippling throughout the selections."

"We can't wait to present the new films from some of cinema's brightest talents," said Bailey. "This year we'll welcome filmmakers from France, Germany, China, the U.K., the U.S. and more to red carpets in Toronto."

From A-listers like Robert Downey, Jr., Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon to fascinating thespians like the late James Gandolfini and the red-hot Benedict Cumberbatch, it's anyone's guess who'll be coming to Toronto for the Festival. »

How Will 'Sons of Anarchy' End? Even Showrunner Kurt Sutter Isn't Sure

11 hours ago

Ending an acclaimed television series is no easy task. Showrunners can be vilified (Damon Lindelof), deified (Vince Gilligan), or somewhere in between (Joss Whedon). A series finale can generate controversy for years -- like that ending of "The Sopranos."

So, Kurt Sutter has his work cut out for him as "Sons of Anarchy" winds down after seven seasons on FX. And he isn't totally sure what he plans to do. At the Television Critics Association press tour, he admitted that the end "could all change."

"I've always had a sense of where I wanted it to go, and I come in each season with a blueprint with the big arcs and mile markers. And I've learned over seven seasons the looser I grip that idea the better the seasons are," he told reporters.

"This season isn't any different. I came in with how I wanted the season to end ... but things change. »

Best of Late Night TV: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Cast Takes Over Kimmel, Kate Hudson Plays Box of Lies (Video)

17 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" was back with a bang following a two-week hiatus, hosting the cast of "Guardians of the Galaxy." Chris Pratt, who plays Guardians leader Peter Quill, dominated the conversation, discussing his weight loss regimen ("vomiting, Zumba, and Shake Weight") and how much fun it was to shoot the film. The actor noted that he was "truly playing every day. I had a laser gun and a spaceship." But that playing came at a price, as Pratt admitted that he got so swept away shooting his fake gun that he couldn't help but making shooting noises with his mouth -- to the ire of the film crew.

This 'You've Got To Be Kidding Me' Supercut Is One For The Ages

21 July 2014 4:45 PM, PDT

When it comes to movie one-liners, there's nothing that expresses a character's dismay or surprise like the classic "you've got to be kidding me."

Maybe it's Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street," Bruce Willis in "Die Hard," or any number of movies Adam Sandler stars in. Need a reminder?

Well, the good people at Screen Junkies have put together this supercut of Hollywood's finest reciting the classic "you've got to be kidding me." Warning, some Nsfw language ahead. But really, you've got to be kidding me if you didn't foresee an F-bomb or two to make the cut. »

2014 Summer Movie Roundup: The Best and Worst Flicks To Watch

21 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT

Don't worry, movie-going public. The summer flicks of 2014 have been kinda crappy so far, but there's a light at the end of the ... theatre.

With Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" release just last week, the tide is changing. Called the best movie of the year by numerous critics, "Boyhood" seems to be leading the charge of better -- and sometimes mindless -- summer movies. From "Lucy" to "Expendables 3," there's still a lot to come.

The New 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Rap Is 100% Vanilla Ice-Free (Video)

21 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT

Move over Vanilla Ice: There's a new gang who's cornering the market on crime-fighting turtle-themed rap music.

In promotion of the new Michael Bay-produced "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" flick set to hit theaters this summer, studio Paramount has released a new single that will be on the movie's soundtrack and feature in the film. The track, "Shell Shocked," is performed by Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign, and perhaps intentionally reminds us quite a bit of "Ninja Rap," the single performed by Vanilla Ice in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."

Unlike "Ninja Rap," however, "Shell Shocked" is a bit more creative with its verses and chorus, though it can't resist some cheesy lines of its own. (Literally. At one point, the phrase "We make it look easy" is rhymed with "Gimme that whole pie -- real cheesy.") The tune is a lot of fun, »

Marvel Studios' Release Schedule Is as Ambitious as It Is Exciting

21 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT

Superhero movies are here to stay, and Kevin Feige wants to make sure they stay interesting.

That's why the Marvel Studios head honcho wants to release one sequel to a pre-existing property and one film featuring a new character each year for the foreseeable future, an ambitious release schedule he revealed in a recent interview.

Speaking with IGN, Feige said that following the "one sequel, one new character" model would be the studio's plan going forward, beginning with "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man" in 2015.

"['Guardians of the Galaxy'] fulfilled our desire to do something different, to start producing, each year, a film that was the sequel to a pre-existing, successful franchise and do something new," Feige told IGN. "We're doing that next year with 'Age of Ultron,' with 'Ant-Man,' and hope to maybe continue that model in the coming years."

That "maybe" is a key piece of Feige's plan, though, »

Yep, Dwayne Johnson Pretty Much Revealed the DC Superhero He's Going to Play

21 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's mysterious DC Comics collaboration just got a lot clearer thanks to a heavy-handed hint from the actor.

During a recent interview with Total Film, Johnson answered a query about the project, and tipped his hand about just who he would be playing in a soon-to-be-announced film. Johnson told Total Film that he and DC "have been talking for a couple of years now about trying to find the right character" that would be a good fit for the actor, who admitted that the process was "tricky" because "I am a certain way."

"My wiring is my wiring, my DNA is my DNA, and when I step on set and on screen, I'm aware of what I'm able to bring to a character, and so is DC, too," Johnson said. "So it's not the easiest thing."

While there were a number of roles he considered -- including Green Lantern, »

10 Totally Weird Series Finales We Can't Forget (Video)

21 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT

July 20th, 2014 is the 20th anniversary of a very important bizarre moment in television history. Yup -- two decades ago we said goodbye to ABC "Tgif" classic, "Dinosaurs."

You may recall that the prehistoric puppet show ended on a total "huh?" note. Translation: the finale was absolutely bonkers.

In the episode called "Changing Nature," the Sinclear family of Pangea prepares for the annual migration of the Bunch Beetles, a species of bugs that eat cider poppies. But when the Beetles don't arrive, an overgrowth of cider poppies begins, and it is discovered that Wesayso (the powerful corporation where Earl works) has created a wax fruit factory where the beetles were meant to breed. Still with me? Earl, the Sinclear family patriarch, is tasked with controlling the growth, but he sprays defoliant and ultimately destroys all plant life on the planet in the process. In an attempt to create rain for the plants' survival, »

Get Ready For More 'Louie' and 'Fargo,' FX Fans

21 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT

FX has renewed two series, with both "Louie" and "Fargo" scoring new seasons after recent celebrated runs.

"Louie," created by and starring stand-up comic Louis C.K., will be back for a fifth season following an experimental batch of episodes that netted him three Emmy nominations and heaps of critical praise. The break between seasons four and five will be much shorter than the 19-month hiatus he took after the end of season three, with new episodes expected to premiere sometime in spring 2015.

"'Louie''s fourth season was once again groundbreaking. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking - always thought provoking," FX CEO John Landgraf said in a statement. "The show went to narrative and cinematic places no comedy has gone before and we look forward to seeing what Louis comes up with next."

Meanwhile, freshman miniseries "Fargo" has been greenlit for a second season, and the anthology series promises an all-new group of characters, »
