'Star Wars' trailer wishlist: VII things we hope to see

7 hours ago

This is how crazily anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII is: On Friday morning, an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin is screening the new teaser trailer not just before every movie, but also in a separate stand alone screening where it will play 17 times in a row. Each screening will be followed by two minutes of discussion by a panel of Star Wars experts who will go into increasingly detailed minutia analysis about what’s on the screen during those precious 88 seconds. Joked EW’s Darren Franich: "Dear God, I hope it’s just one long shot of the Millennium Falcon. »

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 2014: EW's play-by-play

9 hours ago

The leaves have fallen to the ground, the smell of pumpkin pie is in the air, and the turkey is in the oven. That's right, it's Thanksgiving morning. You know what else is upon us?

What we learned during 'The Making of Peter Pan Live!'

19 hours ago

With Peter Pan Live! only a week away, NBC teased their production Wednesday night with a documentary aptly titled The Making of Peter Pan Live! Though EW has already discussed the new songs and Tinkerbell's digital makeover, the special gave us a taste of what the show is actually going to look like, and it's lavish. The Neverland set has a technicolor edge to it—in fact, it has a look that resembles the 1939 Wizard of Oz or the Disney Wonderland—replete with a treasure map floor and giant trees of roses. All of that will be captured by roughly 16 cameras, »

'Thomas Was Alone' is now on almost every device. You should play it.

26 November 2014 3:21 PM, PST

Let's start with that title. It's unusual, isn't it? Thomas Was Alone. It's evocative and mysterious and a little bit sad. Like a lushly illustrated picture book or animated short preceding a Pixar film, it conveys a sort of somber simplicity that aims straight for your heart. It demands that you feel something. Not many video games do that. Thomas Was Alone is one of the most moving games I've ever played.  Stick around. Let me tell you about it. »

'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' gets advanced zombies in new trailer

26 November 2014 12:54 PM, PST

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is a game where you shoot things and use jetpacks in the future. It's pretty great, mostly because of the jetpacks. However, Call of Duty games are also known to occasionally dabble in zombies, because zombies are popular and fun to shoot. So naturally, zombies are going to be added to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare via paid Dlc packs. »

'The Voice' winner Josh Kaufman on his acrobatic Broadway debut in 'Pippin'

26 November 2014 11:47 AM, PST

One of the easiest victories to predict on The Voice was season six winner Josh Kaufman, who pulled out a full season’s worth of impressive performances on the show that ushered him into the winner’s circle with few bumps on the road. After winning the competition in May 2014, Kaufman has taken a decidedly different path in his latest gig: playing the title role in Broadway’s Tony-winning revival of Pippin. Reality talents have never shied from the Broadway stage, but Kaufman’s casting in the circus-inspired revival is particularly of note thanks to the acrobatic demands of the Diane Paulus-directed production. »

Adam Pally talks 'Shape Up' exercise routine: 'One bagel at a time'

26 November 2014 9:53 AM, PST

Adam Pally hasn't been known for playing the most fitness-obsessed characters, but the actor partnered with Ubisoft for Shape Up, a game that lets players exercise from the comfort of their own home using the Xbox One's Kinect camera. That promise excited Pally enough to partner with Ubisoft for a video campaign for the game. Pally spoke to EW about his work with Shape Up, his other projects, and his own unique, and at times dangerous history with exercise. »

And here are the movies you absolutely shouldn't watch with your whole family

26 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST

Yesterday, we passed along a few guidelines for choosing the perfect family-pleasing post-Thanksgiving film. Today, we're gonna do the opposite—namely, detailing the movies we (mistakenly) thought were safe for cross-generational viewing, only to discover that we were horribly, horribly wrong. Learn from us, gentle readers: Don't stream any of these picks after your holiday meal... unless you want to make pie time super awkward. »

This week on 'Polished': Babes' Sarah Rayne on going from child actor to musician

26 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST

Polished concludes this week with Sarah Rayne of the excellent Los Angeles band Babes. (See them in San Francisco on December 11 and their hometown on December 12.) Even if you don't know Babes, you know Rayne's voice: She was Sid's little sister in the original Toy Story. She did a bunch of other acting as a kid/adolescent as well, but has stuck to music lately. Before Babes went out for its first big U.S. tour, Jamie Lee talked to Rayne about her interesting life. »

Jason Sudeikis plays an aggravated juggler in never-aired 'SNL' sketch

26 November 2014 8:35 AM, PST

Seth Meyers gave Jason Sudeikis the chance to get his beloved, never-aired Saturday Night Live sketch about the humiliations of a juggling lessons peddler on the air as part of Late Night's "Second Chance Theatre" Tuesday. Sudeikis had discussed his love for "juggling flyer" on an earlier episode of Late Night in which Meyers said the sketch is "just historic upstairs." In it, Sudeikis plays a suspenders-wearing man who becomes enraged with the patrons of a coffee shop after realizing that no one has pulled any of the tabs from his flyer for "jugging lessons." The sketch is a little long, »

'Tales from the Borderlands' Episode 1 review: Short-changed heroes

25 November 2014 2:50 PM, PST

Tales from the Borderlands is a bit of a departure for Telltale. After two seasons of The Walking Dead and one of A Wolf Among Us, Telltale has proved the studio can deliver powerful, dramatic story and character beats like few other game studios do these days. But what if Telltale tried to be funny? The answer to that is  "Zer0 Sum," a funny, exciting excursion into the world of Gearbox Software's Borderlands series with a smart meditation on the idea of trust in a world where so little of it actually exists. »

EW Lightbulb: The Farrelly Brothers talk about their approach to comedy and returning to 'Dumb and Dumber'

25 November 2014 2:46 PM, PST

Peter and Bobby Farrelly defined a new kind of big screen comedy in the '90s. Dumb and Dumber, There's Something About Mary, Kingpin: The utterly unique Farrelly blend of lighthearted goofery and gross-out shenanigans created some of the great kitchen-sink comedies of the era. A few days before the siblings released their hit sequel Dumb and Dumber To, the Farrelly Brothers talked about their career and their process. It's all part of Lightbulb, EW's new series that features today's leading creators talking about their work and their inspiration. »

'Dancing With the Stars' did a Super Mario number, and it was weird

25 November 2014 2:43 PM, PST

At its best, Dancing with the Stars has a sort of manic energy to its performances—even when the celebrities aren't the best dancers, the choice of theme or music can still be fun. Last night, Sadie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame danced with partner Mark Ballas to a Super Mario Bros. medley, one of the most famous and recognizable suites of video game music ever made. It was pretty weird. »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: 'Mockingjay' talkback and a defense of 'Assassin's Creed'

25 November 2014 1:57 PM, PST

Big week for explosive arrows! Last week I reviewed Far Cry 4, one of the best videogames I've played this year; I also saw The Hunger Games—Mockingjay: Part 1, one of the best non-movies I've seen this year. Readers responded with their thoughts about Ubisoft's franchises and some deep thoughts about the state of moviemaking. If you want to join the conversation, or just want to tell me I'm wrong, email me at darren_franich@ew.com. »

Turn up your Thanksgiving with recipes from Gwyneth Paltrow, 2 Chainz, and Ted Nugent

25 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST

For some strange, strange reason, celebrities doing their own cookbooks is a bona fide thing now. (As are feuds between said celebrities and Martha Stewart, apparently.) In fact, it's widespread enough that one could easily create an entire Thanksgiving meal based only on recipes from their favorite (and possibly least favorite) actors, rappers, reality TV stars, and politically incorrect rockstars. (Let's amuse these celebs for a second by pretending we think they actually come up with recipes themselves.) Which is why we went ahead and compiled the best celebrity recipes for three very different Thanksgiving crowds. Here are our picks: »

8 simple Netflix tricks to try over the long weekend

25 November 2014 11:20 AM, PST

One of the main reasons Netflix is so popular is because of its simplicity. It’s painfully easy to queue up a movie on your laptop, video game console or mobile device and start watching in mere seconds. But that simplicity means there are a lot of features to Netflix that the average customer may not be using. Here, we’ve rounded up some useful tips to help you get the most out of Netflix: »

Cult hit 'Dark Souls II' is coming to Playstation 4 and Xbox One

25 November 2014 11:08 AM, PST

It's easy to pass on From Software's Souls franchise, mostly because there's one thing that dominates all conversation about it: They're stupid, hard games. But that's not really fair—they're not so much hard as they are dense; every encounter is thrilling, every step forward is earned; you have to learn the game, as opposed to just getting through it. That's why they're so loved by those who play them—they're intricate puzzles to play and make sense of, where failure is expected and learned from. If you've never played any of them, now's the time—publisher Namco Bandai has »

Here's what would happen if Iron Man's dad visited Downton Abbey

25 November 2014 9:11 AM, PST

What would happen if a member of Tony Stark's family showed up for dinner at Downton Abbey? Well, according to a bit of fan fiction from writer Gary Whitta, Howard Stark would insult Lord Grantham, offend the dowager countess, and flirt with Lady Mary. (Poor Lady Edith, who, by this account, coins the term "super soldier." Even in fan fiction, it doesn't get much better for Edith.) »
