Watch Vin Diesel say 'I am Groot' in French, Spanish, Mandarin, and more

10 hours ago

In this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel essays the role of Groot, a giant space tree. In addition to Groot’s other lovable traits, he only ever says three words: “I am Groot!”

But recording the part was no walk in the park for the Fast & Furious star. Marvel has released several videos showing how Diesel re-recorded the line in multiple languages: French, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese. And Jimmy Fallon even tested Diesel by asking him to say the line in Mandarin.

Watch the videos below. The only thing better would be if Diesel toured the country, »

Other DC Comics characters we want on 'Arrow' and 'The Flash'

11 hours ago

Warner Bros. didn’t make any announcements at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con regarding future DC Comics films, so who knows when we’ll get a Justice League movie. Thankfully, the CW’s excellent series Arrow and new series The Flash are here to fulfill all of our fangirl/fanboy desires while we wait for an actual Jl team-up onscreen.

This fall,  Arrow and The Flash are diving deeper into the DC Universe, bringing many favorites from the comics to the screen. Ra’s Al Ghul, Wildcat, Atom, and Katana will all be introduced on Arrow this season, and »

Tom Hiddleston wrote an email to Joss Whedon and it's predictably charming

13 hours ago

Beloved British person Tom Hiddleston has spent the last few years stealing movies from superheroes while playing trickster god/Tumblr boyfriend Loki. Although the character debuted in 2011’s Thor, he only really went Full Big Bad in 2012’s The Avengers, where he led a merry assault on the heroes of Earth and got to say the phrase “mewling quim.”

Hiddleston clearly sensed that the Avengers script was something special, writing Joss Whedon an effusive email after he read the screenplay for the first time. Business Insider published a copy of that email (excerpted from a biography of Whedon that hits »

Highlights from Daniel Radcliffe's first Comic-Con

16 hours ago

“There are two facts that tend to amaze people,” says Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. “That during my whole life I’ve only spent four weeks total in L.A. and that I’ve never been to Comic-Con.”

Thanks to the fantasy thriller Horns (out Oct. 31), in which he plays a young man who sprouts devilish protuberances from his head, the actor made his first appearance at the San Diego fanfest on July 25. A few moments after leaving his inaugural Hall H panel, the 25-year-old shared some of the highlights of his trip.

You're not making it through 'Sharknado 2' without our drinking game

17 hours ago

Sci-fi schlock movies like Sharknado (and, presumably, its sequel) are best enjoyed in the company of friends, Twitter, and a large amount of the hard stuff. And if you think you can survive a freak weather event plus shark attack without some sort of social lubricant, then you’re as wrong as… well, somebody who thinks two Sharknados could never hit one major metropolitan area.

So, in order to cover all your Sharknado 2 drinking needs, here’s a drinking game.

Take a sip…

– Every time someone says the word “Sharknado.”

– Whenever you see a chainsaw.

– Every time you’re »

The Mister Rogers of 'Minecraft' is headed for Hollywood

17 hours ago

The newest voice in children’s entertainment is shrill, British, and very, very square. Thanks to the jaw-dropping success of the videogame Minecraft—a sort of online digital Lego universe in which kids (and more than a few grown-ups) build their own worlds, play in them, and invite their online friends to join them—a 23-year-old former bartender from the south coast of England has become millions of kids’ onscreen Bff.

Operating under the Minecraft alter ego of stampylonghead (a.k.a. Stampy Cat)—a boxy orange character with a la-di-da voice and a rat-a-tat laugh—Joseph Garrett has attracted »

Watch Samuel L. Jackson say 'motherf-ker' 171 times in this supercut

18 hours ago

English, motherf–er, do you speak it? Because Samuel L. Jackson does, or at least all the one word he needs to know.

In the grand tradition of reducing celebrities and characters to their favorite lines, the Huffington Post put together this supercut of every time Jackson has said “motherf–ker” on film. You can see the full analysis on their website, which breaks down the mothef–kers by film, including the detail that 1997’s Jackie Brown takes the lead with 37.

If written text is more your style, then rest assured that Jackson has produced just as many variations of »

Stephen Colbert unveils his new project: 'TheSarahPalinChannel.com'

19 hours ago

What is Sarah Palin’s latest endeavor, exactly? Well, “it’s a safe space where like-minded folks can hear things they already agree with from someone whose opinion they already know”—at least, according to Palin superfan Stephen Colbert, who devoted a good chunk of Tuesday’s Report to dissecting the new news network.

In fact, Colbert went on, Palin’s entrepreneurship has inspired him to start his very own vanity online channel: “Stephen Colbert’s Angry Echo Chamber,” which costs just $9.94 a month (vs. the members-only Palin Channel’s $9.95) and addresses only the most important issues of the day, »

Let's cast everyone from 'Girls' in NBC's 'Peter Pan'

21 hours ago

That collective “whaaaaa?!” you heard around 9:40 a.m. this morning was the sound of the internet learning that NBC had cast Girls star Allison Williams as the title role in its upcoming production of Peter Pan Live.

On its surface, the decision seems, well, kind of bizarre. Think about it for a minute, though, and you may get where NBC is coming from: Williams is a practiced, experienced singer, and she’s also long harbored dreams of voicing a Disney character someday. (This Pan musical is different from Disney’s animated take, but it’s just as much of a family-friendly classic. »

Who is Iggy Azalea playing in 'Fast & Furious 7'?

22 hours ago

Vin Diesel is currently hitting the publicity trail for Guardians of the Galaxy, the movie where he finally plays a talking space tree—but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten about his roots, because the only thing that really matters in this life is family because without a family a man doesn’t have a code, vroom vroom! Thus, during an interview with France’s Skyrock FM, Diesel revealed a bit of casting news for Fast & Furious 7, which is unquestionably the most important sevenquel coming out in 2015.

Diesel was asked which song he would prefer to dance to: Jason Derulo’s “Wiggle, »

This week's cover: New 'Doctor Who' star Peter Capaldi clocks in

22 hours ago

Does this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly defy the laws of physics by being bigger on the inside than it would appear from looking at its exterior? Fans of the British science fiction show Doctor Who may well think so. For this week’s cover story, senior writer Clark Collis travels to the UK to meet with Peter Capaldi, the new star of the now 51-year-old time travel saga, and to find out what fans can expect from the forthcoming season of Doctor Who, which premieres on BBC America on Aug. 23. “He’s more alien than we’ve seen him for a while, »

Paramount deletes tweet of Australian 'Tmnt' poster amid 9/11 controversy

29 July 2014 4:23 PM, PDT

Things are not looking so “cowabunga” Down Under.

Less than two weeks before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiere in the United States, a poster for the film’s Australian release is causing controversy. The image in question was tweeted from the @ParamountAU account to promote the film’s September 11 release date there:

The image of the Turtles jumping from a burning building with the words “September 11!” did not sit well with the internet. The significance of that day may hold a different meaning in America than it does in Australia, but angry fans nonetheless took to their own Twitter accounts, »

PopWatch Confessional: I tried to play 'New Girl's fake drinking game

29 July 2014 2:50 PM, PDT

First, a reminder: You are not Zooey Deschanel. There are things Zooey Deschanel can get away with doing that you will never be able to get away with. One of those things is playing New Girl’s fictional drinking game, True American.

True American is perhaps the pinnacle of absurd in-sitcom group games. That’s an area with surprisingly stiff competition—from Friends’ apartment bet to Cougar Town’s Penny Can to Parks and Recreation’s Cones of Dunshire. But New Girl has managed to win out, mostly because it’s returned to the game in no less than three different episodes, »

How it feels to go 'Into the Storm' in the Oculus Rift

29 July 2014 12:21 PM, PDT

Comic-Con trend pieces often skew toward the macro, focusing on how the various entertainment megacorporations use the annual San Diego event to carve out valuable real estate in the cultural calendar for the next two or three years. But a quick walk around the main floor inside of the Convention Center revealed a more immediate new development: Virtual Reality has arrived. Fresh off its purchase by Facebook and a buzzy line-around-the-block presence at E3, the Oculus Rift appeared in a few different places on the Comic-Con floor.

The most memorable–and windiest–was in a glass booth set up for »

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' finale

29 July 2014 11:53 AM, PDT

I want to start off by saying congratulations to Andi and Josh on their engagement. I couldn’t be happier for them.

That said, this live After the Final Rose special was easily one of the more intense hours of television I’ve ever hosted. I want to pick this story up about a month and a half ago. That was the first time I sat down with a producer who let me know that Nick was still very much interested in Andi and he wanted to talk with her. Nick called me and we talked for a bit about how he was doing, »

Who said it, Justin Bieber or Johnny Manziel?

29 July 2014 10:23 AM, PDT

Justin Bieber and newly minted Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel have a lot in common: Both are young, wildly successful, and very outspoken, boldly proclaiming that they’re here to stay and unstoppable, sorry, haters. In fact, there’s so much overlap in their statements that the folks at Sports Illustrated wrote up a Who Said It quiz featuring quotes from the two.

Think you know which one gloated that there’s “Nothing illegal about being 18+ in a casino and winning money”? Or which one wants to party with “Charlie Sheen, Rob Gronkowski and Tiger Woods”? Give it a shot over at Sports Illustrated. »

What does an episode of 'Friends' look like without any jokes?

29 July 2014 7:57 AM, PDT

Taking the jokes out of an episode of Friends it like taking the meth out of an episode of Breaking Bad—it’s just wrong. And if you take the jokes out of season six’s “The One with the Apothecary Table” specifically, laughter is quickly replaced with judgment, Pottery Barn hatred, and Joey’s girlfriend Janine Lecroix, who’s just as annoying as when there were jokes involved.

The show still manages to be funny, however, because the writing wasn’t the only thing making viewers laugh. Watching Monica hit Janine with a trash bag will never be anything but immensely satisfying. »

The 10 best videos from Comic-Con 2014

29 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT

Another year, another Comic-Con. The 2014 San Diego pop culture ultra-bonanza was a bit light on major “the next Superman movie is also a Batman movie”-esque reveals. But if the major studios and networks weren’t out in full force, they still showed off a significant amount of buzzworthy footage from the major projects that promise to define the next few cycles of cultural chatter. Below, the 10 best videos that made their debut during Comic-Con 2014.

'The Bachelorette' season finale: And the 'winner' is...

28 July 2014 7:02 PM, PDT

Okay, rose lovers — the suspense is over. If you don’t want to know who Andi chose in tonight’s season finale, stop reading now. I’m serious, folks. If you’ve somehow stumbled onto this post and have not yet watched Andi hand out her final rose at the Proposal Platform, then walk away. I’ll wait. Okay, for those of you who have witnessed the conclusion of tonight’s “journey,” click through to discuss Andi’s choice of future husband…

After 10 long weeks, it was… Josh who put a ginormous, gaudy ring on Andi’s finger. Yes, the »

28 July 2014 6:04 PM, PDT

The Comic-Con panel for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies went online today, making this Monday especially delightful for those unable to attend the madness in San Diego over the weekend. “Huzzah!” Tolkien fans everywhere shouted.

The panel saw numerous cast and crew—including Peter Jackson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchett, Evangeline Lilly, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis—dole out trivia, make shocking confessions, and laugh with a costumed Stephen Colbert (seriously). Here are the highlights:

1. Stephen Colbert as moderator: Colbert is a J.R.R. Tolkien super-fan (see: the full Hobbit costume he wore during the panel). The late-night »
