'Constantine' star Matt Ryan is a super binge watcher

12 hours ago

The premiere of Constantine (Oct. 24 at 10 p.m. Et on NBC) will introduce many viewers to Welsh-born actor Matt Ryan, who stars as the titular demon hunter and master of the occult made famous in DC Comics' Hellblazer series. But when Ryan stopped by EW, we got a head start. We learned he uses classical music to get into character (Schoenberg is great for getting into those dark places, he says). He had been reading the Hellblazer comic books before he went to bed, but he found himself having strange dreams, so now he unwinds by putting on nature »

Entertainment Geekly: How 'The Walking Dead' is 'Lord of the Rings'

13 hours ago

Robert Kirkman likes to describe The Walking Dead as a zombie movie that never ends. But to my eyes, the most interesting thing about the show is how it's spent five seasons fluttering between different storytelling modes. The show lacks a single setting and makes a point of killing off at least a couple key cast members every season. This can make The Walking Dead feel unwieldy or unfocused, but it also means that there's an exciting state of constant flux underpinning the show's basic head-crushing thrills. I've always said that original showrunner Frank Darabont most clearly viewed his version »

Watch Benedict Cumberbatch try to walk like Beyonce

13 hours ago

This is the stuff memes are made of: Benedict Cumberbatch attempting to do Beyoncé's walk.  Really, not much more needs to be said, but, for background, Cumberbatch was on The Graham Norton Show and prompted by comedian Miranda Hart, who was explaining her bit on walks. To Hart, the "ultimate walk is the pop star walk." Cumberbatch's walk is more Monty Python than "Crazy in Love," but that doesn't mean it's not charming in its own way. Timothy Spall sits silently through the entire clip. »

Ewan McGregor has some unkind words for 'Star Wars' 'fans'

13 hours ago

Ewan McGregor had no small task in taking over for Alec Guinness when he was cast as a younger Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menance. Regardless of his work in the film, the return of the franchise was met by rather tough criticism that continues long after the movie premiered. Well, McGregor has a response to those "fans"—though he calls them by another name. In an interview with Details, McGregor opened up about his limited interaction with Star Wars fans. The actor claims, in fact, that he doesn't have any experience with actual fans of the franchise, »

PopWatch Confessional: Which classic (or 'classic') film have you never seen?

17 hours ago

The Terminator was released 30 years ago this weekend—but our Hillary Busis hadn’t seen it until this past week. (Of course, she's not alone; everyone has at least one shameful gap in their pop cultural knowledge. So we opened up the question to our staffers: What’s a classic (or "classic") film that you’ve missed? Read through our choices—and feel free to chime in with your own. Kyle Ryan, EW.com editor: It won Best Picture in 1962 and is No. 7 on the AFI's "100 best films" list, but not only have I never seen Lawrence of Arabia, I »

Aaron Paul takes on Toys 'R' Us after 'Breaking Bad' toys are pulled

23 October 2014 7:48 PM, PDT

Looks like Toys "R" Us won't be on Aaron Paul's holiday shopping destinations. The Breaking Bad vet took to Twitter on Thursday to blast the retailer for yanking Breaking Bad-themed dolls from its stores earlier this week after some petition pressure from a Florida mother. In her online petition, which gathered 9,000-plus signatures, Susan Meyers said that Toys "R" Us' decision to "sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values." Bryan Cranston—who starred as meth »

The 17 most important GIFs from the 'Avengers 2' trailer

23 October 2014 4:38 PM, PDT

The new teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron features the first look at James Spader's titular robo-baddie, along with an extended peek into the bleak terrors awaiting Earth's Mightiest Heroes in their second superteam adventure. Among the many things on display: The arrival of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, not to be confused with the Quicksilver who appeared in this summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past; the long-awaited appearance of Iron Man's Hulkbuster armor, which is sort of like Iron Man's regular armor except gigantic; the presence of Andy Serkis as a character who appears to be a non-performance-captured human being; and, »

Watch DirecTV's 'Downton Abbey' parody, starring 'the charming Mr. Hitler'

23 October 2014 3:19 PM, PDT

Downton Abbey doesn't return to American televisions until January, but CollegeHumor and DirecTV paired up to give us something to satisfy our British-period-drama thirst with The Britishes, a series of Downton Abbey parodies. Adolf Hitler visits the Britishes' (yes, that's the family's last name) estate in the first episode, titled "The Charming Mr. Hitler." In the sketch, Hitler woos the ladies with his Germandrawing skills, and desire to travel—and somehow escapes accusations of his evil. The Britishes will make its television debut Oct. 28 on DirecTV's Audience Network. »

Taylor Swift: 'Look at me, I wouldn't survive in jail'

23 October 2014 2:05 PM, PDT

Taylor Swift may seem invincible in these days leading up to the release of 1989, but she has fears like the rest of us. Well, not exactly like the rest of us.  In a clip from her upcoming appearance on Ellen, set for her release date Oct. 27, Swift reveals her ridiculous fears. The first? Sea urchins. "They are like a grenade. They're sitting there waiting to completely injure you," she says. The second fear? She's scared of being framed for a crime. "So many people would frame me," she says. "They could frame you for any crime that you could go to jail for, »

Jerry Seinfeld reunites with Kramer in 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' promo

23 October 2014 9:59 AM, PDT

As Jerry Seinfeld prepares for the fifth season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he's enlisted the help of an old neighbor to boost the show and its host Crackle's presence. In the video, Seinfeld rushes to a meeting with the president of Crackle, Dick Corcoran. A thin mustache, slicked-back hair, and cigar smoke can't hide that Corcoran is actually the actor's Seinfeld co-star Michael Richards. Corcoran is concerned, however, that Crackle may never rise to prominence because it's being held down by Snap and Pop. Snap and Pop! Richards actually appeared in the first season of Seinfeld's web series, »

Zach Galifianakis gets a little too real with Brad Pitt on 'Between Two Ferns'

23 October 2014 6:49 AM, PDT

Zach Galifianakis really went for it with Brad Pitt in a new segment of Between Two Ferns. Pitt went on the Funny or Die interview series to promote the World War II drama Fury, or as Galifianakis calls it, Furry. Pitt became the target of Galifianakis' barbs—which start out relatively quaint at first, as Galifianakis asks about Pitt's shower habits (or lack thereof), Pitt's Playgirl spread back in the day, and his penchant for playing Allied forces despite looking like "Hitler's dream." However, the segment descended deeper into harder burns, asking if Pitt could get a suntan because of living "in his wife's shadow, »

See Marvel's latest mystery teaser, 'Inhumans: Attilan Rising'

23 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT

As you may have read earlier this week, something weird is going on at Marvel. The comic book publisher has been releasing a steady trickle of cryptic teasers alluding to previous stories, all hinting at a Summer 2015 date. Today, EW has an exclusive on the latest teaser, Inhumans: Attilan Rising.  This one is pretty different from the other teasers released so far—Attilan Rising is the name of an entirely new story set in current continuity, not a classic one. It alludes to the end of Infinity, last year's big Avengers crossover. In Infinity, Attilan, the floating throne-city of the Inhumans, »

When Taylor Swift's 'Out of the Woods' meets 'Circle of Life,' everything makes sense

22 October 2014 5:00 PM, PDT

Taylor Swift's non-offensively generic pop album (that hasn't even officially released yet) is just ripe for everyone else's projections, and today has produced one remix that has melded together the queen of cats with the movie all about really big cats. With its similar power ballad tone, it was probably inevitable that Swift's "Out of the Woods" would be remixed with Lion King's "Circle of Life," courtesy of mash-up master Chambaland. Get ready though; this will probably be the beginning of the long Taylor Swift remix train ride once 1989 actually hits shelves Oct. 27. Take a listen at Chambaland's Tumblr. »

Watch Air New Zealand's 'Hobbit'-inspired safety video

22 October 2014 3:16 PM, PDT

If you plan on flying Air New Zealand in the near future, you may notice a safety video with some better production values than you're used to. To celebrate the release of the final film (that we know of) in The Lord of the Rings' cinematic franchise, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Air New Zealand has gone all out on its newest safety video. Whether it's an orc demonstrating proper oxygen mask usage or director Peter Jackson himself reminding passengers to stow their electronics during takeoff, the airline's safety video may be the most extravagant one any airline has produced. »

Watch the trailer for Ridley Scott's 'Halo: Nightfall'

22 October 2014 2:49 PM, PDT

While Halo fans may never get a feature-length film, Microsoft is hoping to release the next best thing—a Ridley Scott-produced digital series, Halo Nightfall. The live-action series will debut alongside November's Halo: The Master Chief Collection, but the first trailer gives fans a peek at what's in store.

Ikea Singapore recreates that one scene from 'The Shining' (and nails it)

22 October 2014 2:35 PM, PDT

Ikea Singapore is reaching for a certain horror-aficionado customer base with their newest ad, an excellent homage to The Shining. The furniture mega-chain took on the Stanley Kubrick classic with a faithful rendition of the big wheel scene in which little Danny rides through the Overlook Hotel and encounters those incredibly creepy twins. Ikea Singapore's version drops some major Easter eggs throughout the video as Danny 2.0 rides through an empty Ikea, which serves as an appropriately chilling place to be when people aren't around to buy bed frames. The commercial serves as an advertisement for the chain's Halloween contest on Facebook, »

Lena Dunham, Natasha Lyonne, more lip-sync to 'You Don't Own Me' in PSA

22 October 2014 2:06 PM, PDT

Fifty years ago, Lesley Gore released "You Don't Own Me," a feminist anthem that includes lines like, "don't tell me what to do, don't tell me what to say." Now, the song is being re-purposed for a PSA urging women to vote in the midterm elections. The PSA, which begins with an introduction by Gore herself, features dozens of women—including famous feminists like Lena Dunham, Natasha Lyonne, and Tracee Ellis Ross—ip-syncing to "You Don't Own Me." The video ends with Gore urging women to head to the polls this Nov. 4. "Yes, ladies, we've got to come together, get out there and vote, »

Roombas, rain, John Cage: A brief inventory of Taylor Swift's influences for 'Track 3'

22 October 2014 1:38 PM, PDT

Taylor Swift, wonder that she is, was able to reach the No. 1 slot on Canadian iTunes with a track consisting of just eight seconds of white noise.  The release of "Track 3″ was eventually credited to a "glitch," and according to Swift's Instagram feed, where she's been releasing lyrics from each song on the album, the real third track from 1989 has lyrics about someone being "out and about with some other girl." (Update: The actual track three is "Style," which Swift previewed in a Target ad.) But these days, I have a hard time putting anything past Swift, who has shown »
