How Will Zoe Saldana Shoot All 5 of Her Upcoming Sci-Fi Sequels?

21 minutes ago

Enjoy seeing Zoe Saldana while you still can! In due time, she'll disappear for a while to shoot a whopping five big-budget sci-fi movies: In addition to those three sequels to Avatar, she's also got the just-announced sequel Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Star Trek 3 on her plate — and she's visibly pregnant, to boot. Who's planning this woman's insane schedule?"Not me, not me!" laughed Saldana last night, at a Guardians screening hosted by the Cinema Society, Men's Fitness, and Fiji. "It's the producers of every movie and my agents [who have to plan it]." Which project is she currently prepping for, then? "I do know that Avatar is coming first," said Saldana, who'll be filming Avatar 2, 3, and 4 simultaneously for director James Cameron. "It's been the one in line for a while now, and we're just waiting for Jim to give us the green light so it can happen early next year. My backpack »

33 minutes ago

While we don’t condone violence, it looks like Orlando Bloom officially did something to redeem himself for Elizabethtown. This incident, which we will forever deem “Miranda Kerr? Really?” had a crowd of celebs literally cheering (according to source) after Bloom took a swing at King Baby Justin Bieber at Cipriani Ibiza. Owned. Here are six other reason why Orlando Bloom will always win this fight. »

After an Expository Premiere, Wgn America’s Manhattan Gets Smarter and Funkier

1 hour ago

If you needed further proof that the expository requirements of TV pilots are almost always the enemy of good drama, watch Manhattan, which debuted Sunday and repeats tonight on Wgn at 10 p.m. (and that Vulture’s Margaret Lyons weighed in on last week). Then watch the second episode, which airs this coming Sunday, and appreciate another handsomely produced and reasonably intelligent period series, which, in the Mad Men vein, is about moral relativity as well as psychology.The pilot for this series about the development of the atom bomb is choked with dutiful résumé-reciting (“This is the youngest buck who ever won the Forbes prize!”) and awkwardly inserted backstories and surprising revelations that aren't that surprising, plus a cliff-hanger ending that's meant to keep you on the hook, breathlessly awaiting closure, even though you don't know the cliff-hangered character well enough to give a hoot what happens to him. »

Take a Look at the Into the Woods Stills

1 hour ago

The difference between a cow and a bean is a bean can begin an adventure, and the differences between the stage version of Into the Woods and the Rob Marshall movie version appear to be dust, mist, smokiness. People has some of the first stills from the upcoming film, and it ... you know, looks like a fairy tale.Here's Emily Blunt as the Baker's Wife and James Corden as the Baker. Corden again and Meryl Streep in full witch regalia. Time to root through some rutabaga. Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski, and Tammy Blanchard. It's your first big decision, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella. The choice isn't easy to make. Mackenzie Mauzy plays Rapunzel, but is probably best known for The Bold and the Beautiful. Chris Pine plays Cinderella's Prince. Shimmering and lovely and sad. Corden and Lilla Crawford, who recently played Annie on Broadway. And Johnny Depp as the barely »

Let Vin Diesel Teach You How to Say ‘I Am Groot’ in So Many Languages

1 hour ago

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel plays a tree-alien thing of not many words. He says only three words, always in the same order: “I am Groot.” This limited vocabulary allowed for Diesel to record the voice-over in many languages. Today Marvel sent out footage of him saying the phrase in Brazilian Portuguese, French, Russian, and Spanish. Watch that and the clip of him saying it in Mandarin on The Tonight Show last night below. Groot is truly the Muzzy of the 2010s. »

Chris Pratt Made an Awesome Playlist, Just for You

2 hours ago

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt's Star-Lord treasures nothing more than a classic-rock mixtape from his mother, an aural reminder of his brief boyhood spent on Earth. When we ran into Pratt last night at a Guardians screening hosted by the Cinema Society, Men's Fitness, and Fiji, we brought up Star-Lord's "Awesome Mix Vol. 1," and asked the actor what he might put on his own personal playlist. "Oh, that's a good question!" Pratt enthused. "I'm a big country music fan, so probably a lot of Garth Brooks, Eric Church, George Strait. Maybe some good '80s music — we were listening to some Madonna in the car today; I was singing the Patrick Swayze song from Dirty Dancing today." With his thoughts collected, Pratt launched into an off-the-cuff playlist, which you can listen to below. "So ... Eric Church, 'A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.' Or 'Dark Side. »

What Would It Look Like If the Entire Cast of Girls Were in Disney’s Peter Pan?

3 hours ago

With the news that Allison Williams will be playing the iconic role of Peter Pan in NBC's Peter Pan Live! this winter, we couldn't help but imagine what it might be like if the rest of the Girls cast joined in. (And yes, we realize that Disney's Peter Pan and the Peter Pan musical that NBC is staging are of slightly different species.) Enjoy:(Yes, that's Marnie as Peter, Hannah as Wendy, Adam as Hook, Jessa as Tinker Bell, Ray as Mr. Smee, Shosh as John, Charlie as Michael, and Elijah as Tick-Tock the Crocodile.) »

Questlove: On the Passing of Richard Nichols, the First Voice in My Book

4 hours ago

How can you make any sense of a life ending? Richard Nichols, who managed the Roots since the beginning, since before the beginning, passed away on July 17 after a long battle with leukemia (Cmml). Rich was 55. Our culture calls for certain forms of expression in the wake of an event like this: We’re supposed to compose a declaration of devotion to the departed, offer testimony regarding his lasting importance, make a simple statement of the sadness that has settled over us all. There is no declaration or testimony big enough to fill the life of Rich. But there is a simple statement, and this is it: There is only one Richard Nichols. I know what ya’ll are thinking: "There is only one of each of us." But it's truer than true in this case. Rich was our manager, but that's only a vague way of describing what he »

5 hours ago

The latest trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, which premiered at Comic-Con last weekend, is out in the world.

For the time being, we are only able to direct you to the film's website. Input the code 7201969 to watch the trailer. »

Should Atheists Watch The Leftovers? Your TV Questions, Answered

6 hours ago

Welcome back to Stay Tuned, Vulture's TV advice column. Each Wednesday, Margaret Lyons will answer your questions about what to watch, when to watch it, whom to watch it with, and how to feel about the whole thing. To submit your own questions, you can email staytuned@nymag.com, leave a comment, or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. How do I convince my staunchly atheist boyfriend to watch The Leftovers? I've tried talking up its pedigree — it's HBO, the initial Peter Berg association, the numerous positive reviews — and trying to explain it's Not Left Behind, but none of it seems to work. I feel like there are a lot of interesting themes and stories that go beyond the religious idea of the Rapture — it's just interesting television. Please help! (For the record, I'm not terribly religious myself, but the idea of faith is interesting, and he watches things »

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Trailer

6 hours ago

With about $1 billion of worldwide grosses between two movies, the Night at the Museum franchise has undeniably been a success and undeniably changed how kids complain about museums forever. As a result of this and the whole world of museums to make come to life, we have Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (which may or may not be an allusion to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze). This time, Ben Stiller and his friends are in England, a place famous for liking old stuff. As it is England, Rebel Wilson plays the default person who says "whiff" instead of "with" and Dan Stevens plays Lancelot. The film opens on December 17. If only Santa was in one of these museums. »

Can You Guess Famous Clueless Lines From Just a Gif?

7 hours ago

Okay, you’re probably thinking, “Is this, like Wheel of Fortune, or what?!” But seriously, the Vulture Quote Quiz is, like, way important. When you’re finished playing Suck and Blow, sit down and see how many lines from the 1995 classic Clueless you can guess from just GIFs. Our game works Hangman-style: You type in letters to fill in the quote that goes with the Gif or still image, but if you get more than three letters wrong, you lose that question. (If you're stuck, click for a hint on the upper-right-hand corner of each picture.) When you're done, share your final score on Twitter, Facebook, or just tell Amber because that girl has a big mouth. »

This May or May Not Be Guardians of the Galaxy’s Completely Insane Post-Credits Scene

7 hours ago

Note: As was always going to be the case, it appears the video has been taken down. Unlike in previous years, Marvel has not been including the post-credits scene in press screenings, creating a lot of speculation and buzz. This morning it appears to have leaked — well, maybe. If this is the actual post-credits sequence, it is 10,000 percent bonkers. Not to give anything away, but it features, legitimately, the least likely character that Marvel owns the rights to. However, considering how silly it is, some believe Marvel intentionally leaked this as a fake out. Either way, seriously: What the, well, duck? »

The Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Part 1 Recap: This Is an Adult Program

7 hours ago

Finding out a reunion special is going to be three parts is sort of like finding out that it’s going to take three weeks to get rid of a sliver buried in the underside of your foot — you just pull it and pull it, until a plank so long it could serve as a seat at a picnic table is drawn out of the squishy part between the ball and the heel.The problem with these women on the reunion special is that we want there to be closure. (Well, at least I do. You just might want to know what kind of panties Sonja Tremont Morgan is wearing. I don’t know what you want.) We want the women to have watched the entire season, including what they say about each other in their confessionals, and bring all those events to some sort of resolution. Ostensibly, that is »

Watch the Original Mary Martin Peter Pan and Think Lovely, Wonderful Thoughts

8 hours ago

With this Allison Williams news upon us, let us be neither the first nor last to point you toward the original Peter Pan starring Mary Martin. It's a nostalgia fest for those of us who wore out the VHS, but also evidence that a woman could (and did!) play the most wonderful version of Peter Pan there ever was. Williams surely has big shoes to fill. (That is, if her version of Peter Pan wears shoes.) »

Why Syfy Wins No Matter How Sharknado 2 Does in the Ratings

8 hours ago

A year ago, Syfy’s Sharknado came out of nowhere to become one of the surprise pop-culture success stories of summer 2013. While not many people actually watched the movie when it first aired (and if that applies to you, everything you need to know can be found here), the tsunami of Twitter activity around it (and the subsequent saturation of media coverage of said tweets) caused several of the movie’s five repeat airings to outperform the original telecast substantially in the ratings. All told, Syfy estimates just over 14 million shark-and-or-tornado–curious Americans ended up catching at least a few minutes of the gloriously awful “film.”Tonight, the inevitable sequel — Sharknado 2: The Second One — arrives, and TV industry insiders will be watching to see whether a year of shark precipitation hype will translate into yet another Twitter “event” and, perhaps even more important, a jump in the ratings.

‘You’re Not Frank’: See a Tense Teaser From the Outlander Premiere Episode

9 hours ago

If you’re the sort of TV viewer who has disregarded everything Starz has done since it stupidly cancelled Party Down, you might want to give the premium-cable network another shot with Outlander. Adapted by Battlestar Galactica honcho Ronald D. Moore from Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling series of novels, the show (debuting August 9) follows Claire Randall, an Englishwoman inexplicably transported from the 1940s to 18th-century Scotland, where she encounters bearded kilt-wearers, bawdy Gaelic humor, and way more gore than you’d ever expect to see on a program that, in less-creative hands, could easily have been a mawkish bodice-ripper. In this exclusive clip that takes place moments after Claire wakes up in the Highlands in the 1700s, Claire runs into the nefarious British redcoat Captain Jack Randall, who just happens to be a direct ancestor of (and dead ringer for) her 1940s-husband, Frank. Things get tense! »

Girls’ Allison Williams Will Play Peter Pan in NBC’s Peter Pan Live!

9 hours ago

Just as Mary Martin did long ago, Girls' Allison Williams will play Peter Pan in NBC's Peter Pan Live! (exclamation mark theirs, not ours). Get that girl a flying harness! (exclamation mark ours). She'll go up against Christopher Walken's likely kooky Hook and her casting will guarantee even more internet coverage than greeted The Sound of Music Live! (again, exclamation point theirs). "Dreams do come true!" tweets NBC: It's really hard not to imagine that this is Marnie Michaels's dream somehow coming to life through a wacky NBC/HBO crossover.  I guess it's Williams's, too: »

Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight Poster Is Fully Cool

9 hours ago

As was confirmed this weekend at Comic-Con, after much mishegas, Quentin Tarantino's next movie will be The Hateful Eight and will shoot at the beginning of next year. It's so official, it even has a poster, which premieres in the upcoming issue of Empire. The poster tells us the movie is going to be shot in 70-millimeter Super Cinemascope. (Remember all the 70-millimeter fuss around The Master? Also, remember The Master?) The poster also tells us the movie is going to be bloody, what with the blood and the words "Quentin Tarantino" on top. »

Orlando Bloom Took a Swing at Justin Bieber After They Fought About Their Exes

10 hours ago

Oooh boy. Here's a weird one! Early this morning at an Ibiza Cipriani filled with celebrities (it's apparently 2010 in Ibiza, because Lohan and Diddy were both there), TMZ reports Orlando Bloom took a swing at Justin Bieber after Biebs said something rude about Bloom's ex-wife, model Miranda Kerr. You see, Biebs and Kerr had "hung out," Biebs appeared to claim, after a 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show. ("Bieber said something rude to Orlando, like, 'She was good,''" a source tells "Page Six.") Whether or not that had anything to do with it, Bloom and Kerr split soon after, in 2013. Even more ridiculous, Bloom also had a moment with Bieber's main ex: Selena Gomez — as evidenced by 2014's most loaded paparazzi photo. Yikes. Here's a video of part of the scuffle:You can see the Bloom and Bieb entourages breaking the boys up. "Page Six" claims that you can hear Bieber »
