The 6 Trippiest Things in Kim Kardashian's Crazy New Energy Drink Commerical

2 hours ago

Kim Kardashian is the face of Hype Energy Drinks (because: why not?), and today the brand released a commercial featuring their spokesperson that goes from trippy to surreal more or less as soon as it begins. We've broken down the spot's strangest moments so you don't have to melt your brain. But if you want to feel like you just took peyote, by all means proceed. Here we meet Kim — for whatever reason dressed like Audrey Hepburn — unconscious on the sidewalk. (Note that bling!) We soon learn she got knocked over while bike-riding, because this ad also doubles as a bicycle safety warning. While out cold, Kim K. does what anyone would do: dreams of being a slumbering, energy drink-adjacent Marie Antoinette. Even in this dream world, shameless boob close-ups sell. Doppleganger Kim looks on and gets — during a slow pan to the ground — a chest »

2 hours ago

The Toronto Film Festival just announced a few dozen movies of the eventual hundreds of titles that will screen at the September festival this year. Toronto unofficially kicks off prestige season, and this year's crop brings the usual blend of biopics, auteur-driven dramas, and acting showcases. Among the latter is the festival's opening-night film, Jean-Marc Vallee's Demolition, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a talented banker going off the rails after the loss of his wife. (It's not to be confused with the recent Southpaw, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a talented boxer going off the rails after the loss of his wife.) The festival's other world premieres include: Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic The Martian; Roland Emmerich's gay-rights period piece Stonewall; the Julianne MooreEllen Page lesbian legal drama Freeheld; Gavin Hood's drone thriller Eye in the Sky; Michael Moore's new documentary Where to Invade Next; and »

Tig Notaro, Louis C.K., and Diablo Cody Are Making an Amazon Comedy Together

3 hours ago

Amazon has picked up a pilot starring comedian Tig Notaro, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The semi-autobiographical comedy will be co-written by both Notaro and Diablo Cody, while Louis C.K. is onboard to executive produce the show with them — making for one hell of a comedy trifecta. The show reportedly began as a script deal at FX before moving to Amazon as a pilot. This news comes on the heels of a breakthrough year for Notaro: In April, she aired a documentary, Knock, Knock, It's Tig, on Showtime and recently released another doc, Tig, on Netflix. She'll premiere her first HBO comedy special, Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted, on August 22. Congrats, Tig! »

You Know Who Really Hates UnREAL? Bachelorette Host Chris Harrison

3 hours ago

Kaitlyn Bristowe, the Katniss Everdeen of televised real-life single ladies, gave away her final rose on The Bachelorette last night, and next week, Lifetime will air the season finale of UnREAL, a satire of The Bachelor franchise. And you know who hates UnREAL with the intensity of a thousand broken Bachelor hearts? The Bachelor host Chris Harrison, that's who. "Really, the main difference that I’ve seen is that people watch The Bachelor,” Harrison told Variety. “It’s complete fiction. As much as they would love to jump on our coattails — they were begging for us to talk about it and for people to write about it — at the end of the day, no one is watching. I mean, absolutely nobody is watching that show. Why? It is terrible. It is really terrible.” The shade!Harrison went on: “You only do that when you are part of the vernacular. Because if not, »

Christopher Nolan’s Next Movie Is Already Done

4 hours ago

After rescuing Matthew McConaughey from the universe's most heartwarming black hole, what's Christopher Nolan doing for a follow-up? Directing a short documentary about a pair of avant-garde filmmaker brothers, of course! Actually, scratch the present tense on that — Nolan has already completed his film on the Quay twins, two identical brothers who have been making wordless stop-motion films since the late '70s. Knowing Nolan's obsession with puzzles and miniatures, it seems like a perfect match. The film's called Quay, and it will screen at New York's Film Forum in August — presumably to beat out Legend, the upcoming Tom Hardy movie about phonetically similar but completely unrelated Kray twins.Here is a selection of Quay Brothers films to get you up to speed: »

9 Best New Songs of the Week

4 hours ago

Every week, members of the Vulture staff highlight the best new music of 2015. If the song is worthy of your ears and attention, you will find it here. Read our picks below, share yours in the comments, and subscribe to the Vulture 2015 Playlist for a comprehensive guide to the year's best music.Ginuwine, "Pony" (Rustie Remix) The producers of Magic Mike Xxl asked maximalist Scottish producer Rustie to record this remix; however, they ultimately they decided not to use it. It makes sense — in Rustie's hands the song became significantly less sexy, unless you really want to have sex with a teenage robot. That said, the remix is undeniably banging, even if it won't work for banging. —Jesse David Fox (@JesseDavidFox) Here We Go Magic, "Falling" Here We Go Magic are not my favorite band, but there are few bands I listen to more often. They're just so insanely listenable: »

Little Mix Take Us to Mash-Up Heaven With Jason Derulo and Whitney Houston

5 hours ago

Little Mix, the girl group that won the eighth season of the British X Factor, performed a mash-up of Jason Derulo's "Want You to Want Me" and Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" during their recent visit to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. Their cover is joyful and exuberant, and showcases their vocal skills in a way that their American singles haven't yet done. If you miss Glee or miss Zayn or are sad that there's no real Song of Summer this year, this will really hit the spot. Prepare to chair-dance. »

I Am Cait Debuts Strong, Brings New Eyeballs to E!

5 hours ago

The first episode of E!’s Caitlyn Jenner docuseries I Am Cait debuted to strong — though not record-breaking — ratings Sunday. Roughly 2.7 million viewers caught the show’s premiere the day it aired, slightly more than caught the most recent season premiere and finale episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (2.6 and 2.4 million, respectively). Cait also did well with younger viewers: The show scored a 1.2 rating among adults under 50, making it the top-rated cable show of the night and placing it among the top 15 shows on all of television last week in the key demographic. No surprise, given E!’s targeting of younger women, Cait overperformed among women under 35, averaging a 2.0 in the demo and beating CBS’s Sunday powerhouse Big Brother with that segment of the audience. While Cait matched the women-under-35 ratings of the most recent original Kuwtk episode, it finished about 20 »

The Weeknd Is So Hot Right Now, He Literally Gets Set on Fire in His ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ Video

7 hours ago

Seemingly out of nowhere, the Weeknd has emerged this year as mixtape hero turned full-blown pop star. He currently has three songs on the Billboard Hot 100 ("Earned It," The Hills," and "Can't Feel My Face") — the latter two of which are sitting in the top 20. As we previously wrote in "Songs of the Week," "Face" is his most pop-minded song to date, which is of little surprise since it was produced and written with pop genius Max Martin. Now that the Weeknd finally released the video for the song on Apple Music, it could very well edge out Omi's "Cheerleader" for the No. 1 spot by the next chart cycle ("Face" is currently at No. 2). When someone is this hot, there's only one thing to do: literally set them on fire in their music video. Enjoy the ambient heat. »

Here’s Your First Look at Lex Luthor, Tech Bro, in Batman v Superman

7 hours ago

Before he goes bald, Jesse Eisenberg is playing Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman as a smarmy tech bro — witness his arch turn in the film's recent trailer for proof. Now, thanks to Empire, we've finally got a look at just how obnoxious an entrepreneur Eisenberg's Luthor will be: The answer, unsurprisingly, is very obnoxious. Not only does his company have both "Corp" and "Industries" in its name, he's also got a homemade basketball court, plenty of self-aggrandizing neon, and a blazer that just screams, "I am personally responsible for the displacement of thousands of low-income families throughout the DC Comics equivalent of the Bay Area." After Ant-Man, Terminator Genisys, and others, this is the surest sign yet that the tech douche is the onscreen villain of our times. »

Jill Soloway Calls for ‘Matriarchal Revolution’ in Film

8 hours ago

Last month, Transparent's Jill Soloway gave a powerful message of solidarity to female creators at the Women in Film Awards, and this weekend, at Wifey.tv's run of female-directed shorts at Los Angeles's Cinefamily Theater, she doubled down on the theme. After warning the audience that she "[gets] more and more proselytize-y every day and people probably want me to shut up," Soloway launched into a speech about what she calls "the state of emergency for the female voice." The problem, as she sees it, is the male gaze; no matter how progressive a male filmmaker may be, his camera will always be creating more empathy for his male subjects. The only way to combat this, Soloway says, is for women to pick up a camera and not let the forces of insecurity and self-consciousness get them down. "There is a real all-out attack on us having subjectivity, so I »

9 hours ago

Aziz Ansari's new Netflix show has a premiere date and a title: Master of None debuts on Netflix November 6. Ansari will play Dev, a 30-year-old actor in New York who "has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of life." Ah, millennial woes!

Netflix Renews BoJack Horseman for Season 3 (and Announces a Bunch of Other Stuff)

9 hours ago

Netflix kicks off the Television Critics Association's summer press tour this year with a packed schedule for the fourth quarter. But the biggest — and probably least surprising — piece of news is that Raphael Bob-Waksberg's depressingly funny BoJack Horseman is returning for a third season in 2016, with another 12 episodes. The regular cast will return — Will Arnett, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, and probably a bunch of other celebrity cameos. To celebrate, let's just tell our partners we're in Cordovia when we're actually just binge-watching television until 2016.In other news, here's what else we can expect from Netflix later this year: Aziz Ansari's sitcom Master of None airs November 6. Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom) has a documentary on Keith Richards called Keith Richards: Under the Influence, which will air September 18. As we reported earlier, Chelsea Handler's docuseries would feature a series »

How Netflix’s Original Programming Is Poised to Outpace the Top Cable Networks, in One Chart

9 hours ago

Just before the February 2013 debut of House of Cards, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos revealed his game plan for the streaming service. “The goal,” he told GQ, “is to become HBO faster than HBO can become us.” More than a few TV-industry insiders dismissed Sarandos’s statement as bluster, tough talk from a Silicon Valley outsider playing to investors and the tech media. But by at least one major metric — the size of its original programming roster — it turns out Sarandos wasn’t bluffing. Barely three years after it started churning out its own programming, Netflix already has more original series in various stages of production than HBO, the longtime leader of premium cable content and a network that has been in business for over 40 years. What’s more, as the chart below illustrates, Netflix next year is poised to expand its lineup to more than two dozen »

Macklemore Reveals That He Suffered a Relapse Last Year

9 hours ago

In a new cover story for Complex magazine, Macklemore has revealed that he suffered a relapse last year. The rapper, who has been open about his drug addiction and previous 2011 relapse, admits that fame forced him back to old habits: I held it together for a while. But, eventually, I stopped going to my 12-step meetings. I was burnt out. I was super-stressed. We weren’t sleeping — doing a show every day, zigzagging all over the country. In terms of the media I was getting put into a box that I never saw for myself. The pressure and the fame — everything. All the clichés, man — like not being able to walk around, having no privacy, and from this TV appearance to this TV appearance, and the criticism, and the lack of connection, and the lack of meetings — all of that put into one pie was just »

Heath Ledger Hated That ‘I Wish I Knew How to Quit You’ Became a Meme

10 hours ago

For the tenth anniversary of Brokeback Mountain's release, Out has an oral history of the film. As expected, it's full of loving remembrances of the late Heath Ledger, who, besides being one of the best actors of his generation, comes off like an absolute mensch. In his co-star Jake Gyllenhaal's memory, Ledger hated the way the movie was turned into a meme — "the gay cowboy movie" — which he felt diminished its resonance. "He was extraordinarily serious about the political issues surrounding the movie when it came out," Gyllenhaal says. "A lot of times people would want to have fun and joke about it, and he was vehement about being serious, to the point where he didn’t really want to hear about anything that was being made fun of." As the cast and crew recall, the intense emotions on set were aided by Ang Lee's decision to house »

UnREAL’s Prince Charming, Freddie Stroma, on Adam’s Pathological Narcissism and Why He Doesn’t Think He’ll Be Back Next Year

10 hours ago

The following contains spoilers up through the ninth episode of the first season of UnREAL.The penultimate episode of the first season of UnREAL ended with the possibility of a fairy-tale ending: Adam Cromwell, the British bachelor of Everlasting, asks Rachel, the tortured but skillful producer, if she would run away with him. They could forget it all! The show. The vineyard. Quinn. Vulture spoke with Prince Charming himself, played by Freddie Stroma, about whom he would choose to be his reality-tv wife and the possibilities of a second season for his character. First off, as a viewer, are you Team Adam or Team Jeremy? At the moment I'm thinking Adam. What we love about the show is that there's a lot of gray, and they really go into the different characters. For a while we kept thinking about Jeremy: Oh, he's the good camera guy. He doesn't get involved. »

Mr. Turner Finally Showed Up on Girl Meets World: He’s Still Alive (and Smokin’ Hot)

10 hours ago

Boy Meets World fans have waited nearly 20 years to find out whatever happened to Mr. Turner. The beloved high-school English teacher/Shawn's mentor/every middle-school girl's crush last appeared on the show in season four's "Cult Fiction," where he got into a serious motorcycle accident. His name was mentioned in passing by Stuart Minkus in the graduation episode (in a pretty meta joke about how both he and Mr. Turner disappeared from the show), but we never quite knew what happened to him ... until now. Mr. Turner made his long-awaited return to to the BMW universe, in a cameo on the show's spinoff, Girl Meets World. Good news: He didn't die! In fact, he married his nurse from the hospital, became a school superintendent in Manhattan, and eventually gave Cory Matthews his teaching job. Cory's daughter Riley even calls him Uncle John. Awwwwww! »

Rachel McAdams Is in Early Talks for Marvel’s Doctor Strange

11 hours ago

Rachel McAdams is in early talks to play the female lead in Marvel's Doctor Strange movie. The rumor started going around earlier this month, when Heroic Hollywood reported that Marvel was eyeing her for the yet-to-be-revealed role, and now McAdams herself has confirmed the discussions to the L.A. Times. "It's still super-early days," she said, playing it cool. "I don't know where that's gonna go, if it's gonna go anywhere at all." Though the fact that she's even talking about it in print suggests it has at least gone somewhere. Hope Benedict Cumberbatch likes having shouting conversations over the sound of a piece of wood being repeatedly stabbed.  »
