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

59 minutes ago

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

13 hours ago

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

15 hours ago

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'

16 hours ago

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. Halo Nightfall will focus on Agent Locke, a Unsc operative who will play a major role in 2015's Halo 5: Guardians. Mike Colter stars as Locke as he investigates a Covenant threat that puts a target squarely on humanity's back. Nightfall will be available on Nov. 11 to those who purchase »

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

16 hours ago

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 Overbrook 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

16 hours ago

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'

17 hours ago

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 »

Shia Labeouf gives 'Shia Labeouf' video a standing ovation

17 hours ago

Before Shia Labeouf came under fire for plagiarism, before he was arrested during a performance of Cabaret, before he staged an elaborate exhibit that featured him wearing a paper bag on his head, Rob Cantor wrote a song about the actor that painted him as a violent creature of the forest. And now it's a music video. In "Shia Labeouf," a cannibalistic version of Labeouf is following you. It's a hilariously creepy and surprisingly catchy track that does a good job making a case against getting caught in the woods with, as they call him, "actual cannibal Shia Labeouf." Now, »

In this week's 'Polished,' actress Julie Meyer gets Zen about the Hollywood grind

20 hours ago

Since she got her first break while working in a salon—where a customer helped her get a role to get her SAG card—Julie Meyer has appeared on a variety of shows in guest spots, from Southland to How I Met Your Mother to The Middle and The New Normal. Her first real gig was doing sketches with Jay Leno on The Jay Leno Show, so she's had some interesting experiences during the five short years she's been acting in Los Angeles. Add another one to the list: She was cast in a supporting role on NBC's upcoming Adam McKay »

A deep dive into the glorious time-suck that is 'Simpsons World'

22 hours ago

The good news: As of Tuesday afternoon, every episode of The Simpsons is finally streaming online for free.* The bad news: Thanks to hordes of rabid fans like you and me, the website and app aren't working particularly well—think long load times, endless buffering, and frequent error messages. Sure, these bugs will undoubtedly get ironed out as the initial rush on Simpsons World subsides; as of today, things are already running a lot more smoothly than they were when the site officially launched yesterday. But for those who have been drooling in anticipation, Homer-style, since the site's advent was announced over the summer, »

'Breaking Bad' dolls axed from Toys 'R' Us following petition

23 hours ago

Apparently Heisenberg is no match for a Florida mom. The Associated Press reported Toys "R" Us has stopped selling Breaking Bad dolls, in the wake of a petition calling for them to be removed. "Let's just say, the action figures have taken an 'indefinite sabbatical,'" Toys "R" Us said in a statement EW obtained. The petition, which garnered over 9,000 signatures, called the company's "decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys...a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values." Bryan Cranston was none too »

This week's cover: 'Into the Woods' enchants EW's holiday movie preview

23 hours ago

Ever since Chicago ushered the movie-musical back to the big screen with panache, the song-and-dance genre has had a bumpy road in Hollywood (here’s lookin’ at you, Rock of Ages). But the man behind the 2002 Best Picture winner hopes to turn the trend around with another tuner, this time based on one of Broadway’s most beloved Stephen Sondheim musicals. Director Rob Marshall takes the reins on Disney’s Into the Woods, and he’s gathered an A-list cast and creative team to conjure up a glossy adaptation of the 1987 fairy tale fantasy that’s decidedly different from any »

Hear the 'Voice of Italy'-winning nun's cover of Madonna's 'Like a Virgin'

22 October 2014 6:24 AM, PDT

It's a sign of the post-ironic times when a singing nun wins the Italian version of The Voice and sings "Like a Virgin" as her debut single. The Voice of Italy winner Sister Cristina Scuccia, who won over audiences and the Internet with her rendition of Alicia Key's "No One," went with Madonna's 1984 classic, "Like a Virgin," as her debut single, turning the pop song into a sincere power ballad. Omitting the more racy lyrics, Scuccia sings in front of religious monuments in Venice, Italy, highlighting the more pious elements of the song. In an interview with the Catholic paper Avvenire, »

Someone made a real hoverboard, so you should maybe get excited a little bit

21 October 2014 2:44 PM, PDT

One day, we're all going to have let go of Back to the Future II. We're just running out of time, you see. 2015 is almost here, and we still need roads. Our clothes can't adjust themselves (although they look the part). And going to the movies is still nothing like this. But one thing still seems within our grasp: the hoverboard. A company called Hendo Hover claims to have finally built a working hoverboard, and have started a Kickstarter in order to put the tech out in the hands of upstart developers around the world. They even have a (really melodramatic) video! »

Shia Labeouf admits he used to follow Alec Baldwin home in 'Interview'

21 October 2014 11:03 AM, PDT

Shia Labeouf has had quite the tumultuous year, and he knows it. And now he's explaining it—or at least, he's trying to. "Metamodernism has influenced a lot of my action in the public in this last year and a half," Labeouf told Interview magazine. Ah, metamodernism. Knew it! Besides waxing philosophical about schools of thought, Labeouf also talked to Interview about what famous men have tried to help him along in his career, and what famous men he's, uh, stalked. It's all a part of an apology tour of sorts he's been on the past few weeks, where he's »

'Orphan Black' star Tatiana Maslany to make New York stage debut

21 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT

She's probably relieved to just be playing one part this time. Orphan Black breakout Tatiana Maslany will join The Newsroom’s Thomas Sadoski in the world premiere of Neil Labute’s new drama The Way We Get By, which will premiere Off Broadway at Second Stage Theatre next spring. The two-person play—which follows two confident wedding attendees who wake up next to each other on the blurry morning after—will be directed by Leigh Silverman (Broadway’s Violet). The role marks Maslany's New York stage debut and a return to Labute for Sadoski, who earned a Tony Award nomination »

Despite occasional brilliance, 'Evil Within' falls short of its horror game predecessors

21 October 2014 10:47 AM, PDT

My play sessions with The Evil Within unintentionally developed into a nightly pattern. I’d start up the game and play through two or three chapters, only to find myself facing an annoying enemy. That annoyance would give way to outright anger—halting my progress until the next evening, when I would make quick work of the foe that had bested me the night before. The cycle would repeat in waves, infrequent highs that kept being dashed by too frequent lows. There’s a great game within The Evil Within, but a series of questionable choices and bizarre narrative elements »
