Watch the first 5 minutes of Lifetime's 'Unauthorized Saved by the Bell' movie

18 hours ago

It looks like Lifetime has decided to start school a little early this year.

Before its premiere on Sept. 1, the network has released the first five minutes of the highly anticipated and already much-talked about The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story. After barely giving us a real trailer, releasing the opening sequence on Facebook is an interesting way to capture viewers’ attention. Before the full title credits roll, we meet Zach, Screech, and the whole gang in a limo en route to what appears to be their first big public appearance after the premiere of Saved by the Bell. »

More adult women play video games than teen boys -- will the industry act accordingly?

20 hours ago

Let’s blow up some stereotypes.

There is a popular and enduring image of what a “gamer” looks like: mostly male, mostly juvenile, mostly white. That image is false, and has been for a long time now.

According to a survey from the Entertainment Software Association, there are significantly more adult women playing video games than adolescent males—just like there were last year. Why does this matter? Because the “gamer culture” propagated by industry marketing and perpetuated elsewhere does not reflect reality, and it has created an environment that is unwelcoming to anyone who does not fit this “norm. »

Watch Benedict Cumberbatch complete the Ice Bucket Challenge naked

21 hours ago

Today’s the day. Today is the day when the internet might actually implode. Not only has everyone’s favorite internet boyfriend, Benedict Cumberbatch, joined the trend and completed the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, but he did it more than once … and one time, he did it naked.

After being nominated three times for the challenge, Cumberbatch completed it sitting down, in the shower, in a suit, on his motorcycle, and on his way to his car. In other words, he completed it in a T-shirt, naked, a suit, a leather jacket, and a white T-shirt. »

Oculix: What happens when Netflix programmers incorporate Oculus Rift

21 hours ago

Every once in a while tech companies like Netflix hold what are colloquially known as a Hack Day, or Hackathon. This is when the tech company decides to put most of its day-to-day work on hold in order to set its employees free to collaborate and try wild new ideas, which will hopefully prove useful in making the company’s product better. It’s kind of like penguin mating season, but with more programming.

This week, Netflix just wrapped up its own Hack Day, where over 150 Netflix engineered tinkered and coded their way towards crazy new experiments in making streaming video better. »

Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin, Tavi Gevinson shine as Broadway's 'Youth'

23 hours ago

The kids are taking over the Great White Way. Since its first production in 1996, Kenneth Lonergan’s caustic comedy This Is Our Youth has attracted the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Anna Paquin, and Mark Ruffalo. And on Sept. 11, the three-person play about wealthy teens in early-’80s Manhattan makes its Broadway debut with a new trio of stars. Kieran Culkin, Tavi Gevinson, and Michael Cera, fresh off a trial run at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, tell EW how their lives led them to This.

Culkin first performed This Is Our Youth 12 years ago in London’s West End— and never forgot about it. »

Teddy Sears mastered his 'Sex'-ual education early

23 hours ago

He’s no womanizer like his Masters of Sex character Dr. Austin Langham, but Teddy Sears has had an appreciation for the female form for some time now—as long as there’s no food involved.

Sears admits he didn’t get what all the fuss over 9 1/2 Weeks’ iconic refrigerator scene was about: “That scene when all the foodstuffs come out? You lost me. That’s when I turned it off.” Then again, he was only 9 or 10 years old at the time.

It’s unlikely the same could be said of Langham if he had come of age during Kim Basinger’s controversy-stirring prime. »

On Sunday, True Blood will meet true death after seven seasons of surprises, sex, surprising sex, and more supernatural beings than most shows could even attempt to incorporate.

Someone on Capitol Hill made rude edits to Laverne Cox's Wikipedia page

21 August 2014 2:32 PM, PDT

Anyone can edit Wikipedia entries, including those working in the House of Representatives—and thanks to Ed Summers, the developer behind Twitter account @congressedits, we can now know exactly what changes these Congress staffers are making. Summers tracks the edits of users with IP addresses in the Congressional range, and Wednesday, he discovered one anonymous staffer altered transgender actress Laverne Cox’s page.

According to the A.V. Club, Cox’s Wikipedia page originally read that she was a “real transgender woman” but the Wikipedia user changed it to read she is “a real man pretending to be a woman. »

Former child star Jonathan Lipnicki is all grown up in 'You Used To Be Cute'

21 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT

Once upon a time, Jonathan Lipnicki stole our hearts in Jerry Maguire. Then he grew up.

Like many former child actors, Lipnicki is forever stuck in people’s minds as that one cute kid in that one movie from awhile ago—and those same people are shocked when they find out that, crazily enough, he’s now an adult. Lipnicki pokes fun at this mindset in a new video that shows him auditioning for a role, only to find the casting team comparing him to other former child actors. And, naturally, interrogating him about his (fictional) addiction issues.

Woman watches all the TV in EW's 24-Hour Emmys Binge Guide, lives

21 August 2014 1:07 PM, PDT

It is a massive undertaking that requires a Stevie Nicks dance party, forced insomnia, and the stamina to do a whole lot of sitting.

Dedicated fan Ellen Lloyd (@eel8) took up EW’s challenge and livetweeted through an entire day’s worth of Emmy-nominated shows featured in the EW 24-Hour Binge Guide, with the Twitter time stamps to prove it. And Lloyd wasn’t messing around. Per the guide’s eating and drinking requests during various shows, Lloyd ate like the Dowager Countess during Downton Abbey with tea and Peppermint Milanos and drank like Scandal’s Olivia Pope (albeit in »

The bummer-tastic, body-shaming message of 'Scooby-Doo: Frankencreepy'

21 August 2014 11:30 AM, PDT

The Scooby-Doo franchise—a consistent presence on TV since its first (and most iconic) series, 1969’s Scooby Doo, Where Are You?—has seen its fair share of ups and downs. But a new direct-to-dvd movie, Scooby-Doo: Frankencreepy, out this week, has an especially troubling conceit in the middle of its kid-friendly hijinks: the idea that not being thin is one of the worst punishments you can inflict on a girl.

First spotted by The Good Men Project and subsequently written about by The Huffington Post and the blog Mommyish, the movie involves the gang getting cursed and losing what means the most to them. »

Anderson Cooper is now a comic-book character, won't quit his day job

21 August 2014 11:29 AM, PDT

Joining the ranks of other esteemed public figures like Stephen Colbert and Barack Obama, Anderson Cooper is going to be a comic-book character.

First reported by E! Online, the famed anchor will appear in the 12th issue of Marvel’s Black Widow series, by writer Nathan Edmonson and artist Phil Noto. Just like in real life, comic-book Cooper will be a news anchor, breaking a story on the titular heroine. While Black Widow, a.k.a. Natasha Romanova, has a relatively high profile as a member of the Avengers, her history as a covert operative means there are plenty of »

Justin Bieber finally shaves his 'stache in Instagram video

21 August 2014 10:29 AM, PDT

In the pantheon of celebrity mustaches, Justin Bieber’s recent attempt ranks somewhere between a Matthew Broderick and an Ashton Kutcher. Unlike the greats—say, Hulk Hogan’s or Salvador Dali’s—a mustache like this mostly incites a desire to shave it off.

Thankfully, Bieber has taken the hint. In an Instagram video posted yesterday, he grabs a razor and an encouraging friend to help him say goodbye to wispy lip fuzz and hello to hairlessness. Bieber turns shaving in his cavernous bathroom into a full-on production, with sultry whispering, smoldering gazes, and awkward close-ups of his chin. »

How 'Saved by the Bell' changed after the pilot

21 August 2014 6:22 AM, PDT

Twenty-five years ago, Saved by the Bell began teaching teens important life lessons, and that didn’t just include how to “get yourself a look” or be on time for school. Rather, it demonstrated what it meant to be a true friend, how caffeine pills are always a bad idea, and of course, that wearing jean-on-jean is always acceptable.

But reflecting back on how the series began, it wasn’t always about Zack Morris, A.C. Slater, Kelly Kapowski, and the gang. In fact, the kids were more of a secondary storyline.

In honor of the show’s anniversary, I »

'Spider-Woman #1' has a special variant cover that is causing some controversy for some reason

20 August 2014 5:24 PM, PDT

Good news: Marvel has a new comic book starring a female character! Better news: That female character is Spider-Woman, a.k.a. Jessica Drew,  a severely underrated B-lister who hasn’t had a solo non-limited series since the late ’70s. Best news: Spider-Woman will team up Jessica with Silk, another female superhero, therefore all-but-assuring that Spider-Woman will be passing the Bechdel Test all over the place.

Woohoo, Marvel! Woohoo, strong female character! Woohoo, illustrations of those strong female characters posing with strength and femininity! Why, just look at this variant cover of Spider-Woman #1 by Milo Manara:

Yep, there’s ol’ Spider-Woman, »

Nick Offerman reads profound Shower Thoughts from Reddit

20 August 2014 4:42 PM, PDT

Call them Deep Thoughts for the Reddit generation.

Channeling his inner Ron Swanson in a video created by Mashable, Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman reads simple yet great truisms from the best of Reddit’s Shower Thoughts.

In his signature deadpan, Offerman gazes off into the distance and shares knowledge that can only be summed up as pure Swanson genius. Because technically, he’s right—we’re all half centaur.

But the subreddit isn’t just a depository for readers’ soapy musings—Shower Thoughts is currently trying to raise money for Charity: Water, a non-profit organization seeking to provide »
