'The Lego Movie,' 'Birdman' nab Producers Guild of America Awards

2 hours ago

The Lego Movie might have been overlooked by the Academy Awards, but it didn't get the same treatment from the Producers Guild of America: The film won the award for best animated feature at Saturday's Producers Guild of America Awards. The PGA Awards annually honor achievements in film, television, and digital production. Other winners include the Oscar-nominated Birdman and Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. See the full list below: »

Five directors who can help Johnny Depp recover from 'Mortdecai'

3 hours ago

The saddest part of Mortdecai's abysmal debut this weekend was how expected it seemed to be. Johnny Depp's latest starring vehicle, in which he plays a daffy British bon-vivant jetting around the world to find a stolen masterpiece, aimed to be a kind of Pink Panther-esque caper, but American audiences stayed away in droves, and the critics unloaded. "In the end, we must lay the badness of Mortdecai at the feet of its star," wrote New York's David Edelstein. "I envy Depp’s capacity for self-amusement, but it’s a pity he’s so rich and enbubbled that »

Blake Shelton takes over 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend: Talk about it here!

19 hours ago

Don't you just love the smell of corporate synergy in the morning? Perhaps that's an unfair statement. Country star Blake Shelton's status as The Voice's top dog—he's one of only two celebrity coaches to appear on every season of the series, and his contestants have won the competition's big prize a whopping four out of seven times—certainly isn't the only reason he's been tapped to serve as Saturday Night Live's host and musical guest tonight. Anyone who's tuned in for even a single Voice episode knows that Shelton's more than a country singer. His easygoing, »

Bill Maher calls 'American Sniper' Chris Kyle 'a psychopath patriot'

22 hours ago

On Friday night's Real Time with Bill Maher, the caustic host and his panel discussed last week's big box office news—the runaway success of Clint Eastwood's American Sniper, which as of January 23 has made approximately $154 million. While the film's financial success is certainly making headlines, Maher was interested in the polarity of the social media discussion around the film and its real-life hero, the late Chris Kyle. »

Apple stuns the world, says Apple Watch battery will last all day

23 January 2015 1:40 PM, PST

Apple thinks that its new smartwatch is pretty cool. Apple, of course, is the only entity qualified to say that, because Apple Watch has yet to be released out into the wild. But once again—even if it is cool, cooler than the dozens of other smartwatches on the market—none of that will matter if its battery doesn't last long enough. But according to Apple, the company's smartwatch will last long enough for a day's worth of "mixed use," i.e. when a user only occasionally glances at it or uses its various widgets and doodads—you know, like »

Who could Chiwetel Ejiofor play in 'Doctor Strange'?

23 January 2015 12:16 PM, PST

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor is the latest highly-respected actor to be pursued by a movie studio for a role in a superhero film—that film being Marvel's Doctor Strange. If the report is true—and even if it is, the deal is supposedly in its earliest stages—it would certainly raise the film's profile significantly. Which is a good thing when your subject matter is as abstract and weird as Doctor Strange. (Neither Marvel nor Ejiofor has yet responded to EW's request for comment.) But who would Ejiofor play in the film? Speculation abounds—especially »

Ask Dalton: Can recaps replace TV viewing?

23 January 2015 12:15 PM, PST

Is honesty the best policy when it comes to watching TV with your spouse? And can a recap take the place of an actual show? Dalton Ross, EW editor-at-large and resident pop-culture referee, weighs in. I promised a friend I'd catch up on Celebrity Apprentice, but there are so many episodes. Can I just read recaps and fake it? —Sonja (@SonjaC519) Well, Sonja, before I can properly rule on the matter of whether you should actually sit down and watch an episode of The Celebrity Apprentice, I need to ask you the following question: Generally speaking, what are your thoughts »

Nominated for Nothing: 'Snowpiercer'

23 January 2015 11:02 AM, PST

Just about every year, brilliant movies are utterly ignored by the Oscars. The Searchers, Groundhog Day, Breathless, King Kong, Casino Royale, Touch of Evil, Caddyshack, Mean Streets, The Big Lebowski, Blackfish — the Academy has a long history of overlooking comedies, action movies, horror flicks, hard-boiled genre pics, artsy foreign films, and documentaries that aren’t about World War II. Before the ceremony, we’ll be taking a closer look at films that were too small, too weird, or perhaps simply too awesome for the Academy Awards. These are the Non-Nominees. The film: Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer is the story of mankind »

23 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST

'Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings' review -- Down among the dead men

22 January 2015 4:45 PM, PST

The first thing Dead Kings gets right is its title—because it actually has one. Assassin's Creed Unity is barely a title; an abstract noun hitched to the back of a franchise name (or "brand"), one that has only the slightest of connections to its subject matter. It's a clumsy slant rhyme in a pop song, something that reads like it came out of a focus group. Dead Kings, then, is a huge improvement. It is evocative and accurate: there are kings in this game, and they are dead. Don't get your hopes up, though. There aren't a whole lot »

Watch the guys of 'Workaholics' drink beer and impersonate each other

22 January 2015 1:26 PM, PST

After making five seasons of Workaholics together, the stars of the Comedy Central show are pretty well acquainted with each other—meaning they're pretty good at impersonating each other, as the trio proved over beers with EW. According to the impressions, Adam DeVine turns into Zoolander when he looks in the mirror, Blake Anderson thinks a lot, and Anders Holm is really into early Kanye. Workaholics, they're just like us. »

'American Sniper' screenwriter discusses backlash with 'Time'

22 January 2015 10:55 AM, PST

The controversy surrounding American Sniper sparked a recent interview from Time with the film's screenwriter, Jason Hall, about writing what might be the most hotly debated Oscar film this season. “People see the movie poster, and it’s got a guy and the American flag, and they know Clint Eastwood—the Dirty Harry guy and the Republican convention guy—directed it,” Hall told Time. “So they think it’s some jingoistic thing. I would challenge that in a big way." Some critics say the film is glorifying a murderer, while Hall stands by his screenplay as a "portrait of a beleaguered soldier" in Chris Kyle. »

'Resident Evil HD' review: Zombie scares that stand the test of time

22 January 2015 9:10 AM, PST

Resident Evil HD proves that the series has endured for as long as it has thanks to its strong roots. The remake of the first game in the Resident Evil series still delivers a number of solid scares and engaging puzzles, standing the test of time even when some of its aspects—like hokey dialogue and frustrating design choices—would have been better off left in the last century. It's a shame, then, that this reintroduction to a seminal game gets so much right—but only goes so far toward properly modernizing the game. »
