17 April 2015 12:02 PM, PDT

Here it is, ladies and gentleman. The first blur-free, official trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck (the trailer is mostly Affleck), and directed by "Man of Steel" helmer Zack Snyder. Instead of providing endless commentary, we're just gonna let the stars of the movie -- and you -- do the talking. Watch, discuss, and let the rampant speculation begin. »

The 27 Best Las Vegas Movies

17 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT

If you thought the only thing that could have made 2009's "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" better was if it took place in Las Vegas instead of West Orange, New Jersey, then you're in luck. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," opening April 17, does indeed bring Kevin James's gung-ho security guard to Vegas, where his misadventures continue. The film stakes a place in Las Vegas history by being the first production that casino mogul Steve Wynn allowed to shoot at his Wynn Las Vegas resort.

Movie Vegas, like the real Vegas, is a place where everything seems more fun and more dangerous. It's a playground for the id, where money can buy pretty much anything, and where sex, stimulants, and sirloin steaks abound. It's also a location for morality tales, which are a little hard to swallow with all that licensed fun going on.

Vegas movies also often rip away the »

Disney Still Can't Stop 'Frozen' Lawsuit, Trial Date Set

17 April 2015 9:41 AM, PDT

A judge will not let this "Frozen" lawsuit gooooooooo, so a trial has been tentatively scheduled for October. What's going on? Last March 2014, Kelly Wilson brought a copyright lawsuit against Disney, arguing that the "Frozen" trailer was a little too similar to her short computer animated film, "The Snowman." You'd think it would be easy for Disney's legal team to freeze just about anyone out, but they failed in the first attempt to have the lawsuit tossed and they just failed a second attempt.

This time, the arguments included a whole analysis of YouTube records, and tracking whether anyone from the "Frozen" team could've seen "The Snowman" online or at the San Francisco International Film Festival. The judge noted that "The Snowman" screened four times at the SanFran festival, and Pixar employees who were heavily involved with "Frozen" attended that event. "The connection between The Snowman and people involved in »

Jerry Seinfeld: 'TV Is Over,' But YouTube Is 'a Giant Garbage Can'

17 April 2015 7:50 AM, PDT

Does Jerry Seinfeld like anything? Yes. Crackle. He hosts Crackle's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" and he has a high standard for and opinion about the content they are creating for the digital network. However, the "Seinfeld" alum took some shots at just about everyone else while at the Crackle upfront event.

He said he loved the TV experience he had, and if he was going to be a part of something else, he wanted it to be inventing a new experience for viewers. Enter Crackle. "There's nothing different about what we're doing than what anyone else is doing on any media anywhere," Seinfeld said (via TheWrap). "TV networks are worried that you'll figure out TV is over and there's nothing special about it." Is TV really over? It isn't because he says it is, but the way people consume content has certainly changed and it's constantly morphing as new technology emerges. »

'Game of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams's Favorite Arya Scene Ever Is Coming

17 April 2015 7:25 AM, PDT

Arya Stark was not in the "Game of Thrones" Season 5 premiere at all, but this Sunday, April 19's Episode 2 is titled "The House of Black and White," and that's where we'll see Arya again.

Actress Maisie Williams teased some details of Arya's return to Entertainment Weekly, but we shouldn't expect to see it all in Episode 2. Arya isn't just back for one episode, this is just where her strange new journey begins. No spoilers here, but part of that journey includes a new look...

"We did a scene where Arya throws away her old clothes," Maisie said. "That was such a release. It was like, no acting required. It was totally like a next chapter. It was emotional, and so far it's been absolutely my favorite scene to do. You've never seen Arya looking like this, and the way I'm shot is different too. It's a breath of fresh air. »

A Definitive Ranking of the Clones on 'Orphan Black'

17 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

They may share the same face, but the clones of "Orphan Black" are very much unique individuals. When the BBC America drama returns for its third season this Saturday, we'll have met 10 female clones (with a few dead off-screen). They range from a sensitive scientist to an uptight housewife to a sweets-loving psychopath.

One thing they all have in common, aside from that Tatiana Maslany's face, is a determined curiosity about their origins. They'll find out more about that, as well as their "other halves" - the male clones, who include Prolethean Mark and wild animal Rudy. How the female and male clones relate to each other and how they fit into a bigger conspiracy are the questions that lie at the heart of season 3.

And we have a feeling that "Orphan Black" isn't done introducing even more female clones. Wonder how they'll fit in with their sisters? Here's »

Watch Anna Kendrick and J.Lo Crush John Krasinski in 'Lip Sync Battle'

17 April 2015 6:27 AM, PDT

This is why Spike's "Lip Sync Battle" is already must-see TV. It just premiered in early April and it's now a Thursday night staple, thanks to performances like this one from "Pitch Perfect" star Anna Kendrick.

Last night (April 16), Anna took on John Krasinski, who is a producer of the show. She did two songs: "Steal My Girl" by One Direction, and "Booty" by Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull. For her fully choreographed "Booty" performance, she got back-up from the singer herself, J.Lo, and that sealed the deal. Total ownage.

Check out the "Booty" performance here, with Jenny from the Block's cameo:

Boom! John couldn't top that, although he was no slouch with "Bye Bye Bye" by Nsync and "Proud Mary" by Tina Turner. Check out his clips over here. »

Watch Matthew McConaughey's Scary-Accurate Reaction to the New 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Teaser

17 April 2015 6:18 AM, PDT

Remember that scene from "Interstellar" where Matthew McConaughey gets all teary-eyed watching videos that his children made back on Earth while he's cruising around the galaxy for no good reason? Yes, yes, it was very emotional. But what it severely lacked, of course, was "Star Wars." Thankfully, that has been cleared up.

The video below will, as The Verge rightly suggests, become "your new favorite meme." So just sit back and enjoy. (Also we love that it's a way to enjoy the "Star Wars" trailer again without feeling like a complete weirdo.) Alright alright alright alright alright »

Tom Hardy Facts: 15 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Actor

17 April 2015 5:45 AM, PDT

Ever since breaking out in "Bronson" (2008), Tom Hardy has been on a tear.

The London-born actor got his start in supporting roles, appearing in two of the most memorable productions of the early 2000s, but it would be a few years until Hardy became the star we now know. After dealing with alcohol addiction and the end of his first marriage, Hardy has become one of Britain's brightest talents. Now, the actor stars in the thriller "Child 44" opposite Gary Oldman and, later this summer, takes over for Mel Gibson in the summer blockbuster "Mad Max: Fury Road."

From his acting debut to his favorite actor, here are 15 things you probably don't know about Tom Hardy.

10 Sitcom Pilots Inspired by Real People: Which Will You Watch?

17 April 2015 5:30 AM, PDT

Last week, in the wake of Eddie Huang's complaints that he felt ABC's "Fresh Off the Boat" was distorting and softening his childhood experiences, this column examined how hard it is for any biographical or autobiographical sitcom to be true to the life of its source and still be a crowd-pleasing primetime network entertainment. You'd think, after decades of trying, TV writers and network programming executives would be aware of this.

Nonetheless, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the networks have no fewer than ten such sitcom pilots in production, as the first episodes of potential 2015-16 primetime series. Some are based on the lives of already famous entertainers, some on the self-referential stand-up comedy routines of not-quite-famous comics, and some on memoirsts who've lived interesting lives.

Here's a rundown of these pilots, with a look at who these shows are about, who's starring in them, what the series might be like, »

Best of Late Night TV: Jamie Foxx Sings Tinder Profiles and Simon Cowell Speaks About One Direction Split (Video)

17 April 2015 12:00 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.

Zayn Malik recently parted ways with One Direction, and Simon Cowell spoke out about his departure on "The Late Late Show." Simon joked that he was "about to jump off a cliff" when he heard the news, and that he definitely tried to make Zayn stay with the band. Also, apparently 1D's newest album is going to be the best yet. Thank god.

In slightly less dramatic, life-altering news, James Corden teamed up with Michael Douglas for a remake of "Basic Instinct," in which he played Sharon Stone. So much leg-crossing and crotch-blurring, so little time.

Tons of amazing things happened on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," but let's start with Betty White, »

Anna Kendrick Is Writing Your New Favorite Book

16 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT

Anna Kendrick is a delight on Twitter, and now, she's parlaying her quick wit into a series of humorous essays for a new book.

The Oscar-nominated actress is set to pen a book of autobiographical essays that touch upon her childhood, her box office success in flicks like "Pitch Perfect," and everything in between. The as-yet-untitled tome is set to hit the shelves sometime in the fall of 2016.

Kendrick released a statement along with the announcement from publisher Touchstone. It said:

I'm excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness and the frequency with which I embarrass myself.

And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel »

Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Has a Teaser Trailer

16 April 2015 9:45 AM, PDT

Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight" finally has an official teaser trailer, and there's no mistaking the director's trademark style.

The short clip doesn't have any actual footage from the flick. Instead, it features a set of title cards that explain the film's basic premise -- it takes place on the American frontier shortly after the Civil War, eight strangers with a mysterious joint secret are stranded together in a snowstorm -- and introduces its eclectic cast of characters.

In typical Tarantino fashion, those introductions are made with stylish graphics, a funky soundtrack, and a set of ridiculous monikers. (Joe Cage, a.k.a. "The Cow Puncher," has us especially intrigued.) And yes, there's some blood spatter, too.

"The Hateful Eight" stars Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Channing Tatum, Kurt Russell, and Samuel L. Jackson, among others. It's due in theaters later this year.

Is This Olivia Munn's Psylocke Costume From 'X-Men: Apocalypse'?

16 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT

Just days after her "X-Men: Apocalypse" casting was revealed, Olivia Munn seems to have a big revelation herself: Her Psylocke costume.

The actress posted a photo of herself on Instagram, purportedly dressed as the telekinetic mutant, with the cheeky caption, "If the latex fits...."

If the latex fits...

A photo posted by Olivia Munn (@oliviamunn) on Apr 15, 2015 at 6:48pm Pdt

While it's not a full shot of the entire ensemble, Cinema Blend notes that what we can see does coincide with Psylocke's traditional leotard-based costume (and she's also been known to wear gloves, too). Filming is set to start next month, and actors are apparently starting the costume testing process now; this look may see some changes before it hits the big screen, but it's cool to get a peek at the work in progress (and have it to compare to Munn's full mutant transformation in the finished flick »

Ryan Gosling in Talks to Star in 'Blade Runner' Sequel

16 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT

The upcoming "Blade Runner" sequel just got a major dose of heartthrob: Ryan Gosling is in negotiations to star in the long-awaited flick.

Gosling would play the lead alongside original star Harrison Ford, who's reprising his role as Rick Deckard. Denis Villeneuve ("Prisoners") is directing the flick, and original director Ridley Scott is executive producing.

"Blade Runner 2" -- which doesn't have an official title or synopsis yet -- is set to take place "several decades" following the conclusion of the 1982 original flick. Details about Gosling's character are also being kept under wraps.

The flick is being co-written by original screenwriter Hampton Fancher alongside Michael Green, from an idea by Scott and Fancher. Production is expected to begin sometime in summer 2016.

Stay tuned to see if Gosling's casting is confirmed.

The New 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Teaser Will Make You Choke Up, Jump for Joy

16 April 2015 7:23 AM, PDT

Maybe it was the hour+ buildup to the big reveal of the second "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer that had us already primed for an emotional experience or maybe it's just the sheer, unadulterated excitement about the project, but at the end of the nearly two-minute-long clip, we were on the verge of tears. If this movie isn't everything we'd hoped it'd be, at the very least it will be remembered as the best-marketed movie of all time.

The teaser begins, as the first one did, with a slow pan against a desert landscape (which we learned was not, in fact, Tatooine but a new planet called Jakku. In the background is a crashed Star Destroyer, one that we can assume from the panel, contains Finn (John Boyega), the plucky stormtrooper from the first trailer. Then the trailer ramps up the nostalgia quotient with the sound of a familiar »
