2 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT
Channing Tatum's role in the dance film Step Up broke him as one of Hollywood's favorite leading men, and while he's grown into a megastar, his dancing skills are never far behind. While shooting his Vanity Fair cover with Annie Leibowitz, Tatum showcased seven dance moves in 30 seconds.
From the twist to the funky chicken, Tatum gave a brief taste of his abilities for each of the moves in a clip soundtracked by Ginuwine's "Pony." His abilities to vogue, however, top it all, confirming that he has become »
Weekend Rock: Name the Greatest Robot Character In Movie History
2 July 2015 11:10 AM, PDT
Terminator Genisys opens up this weekend, and the reviews are quite mixed. "The movie's willingness to veer crazily off-course feels less objectionable than the monotony and sense of self-parody that kick in long before the whimper of a finish," Justin Chang wrote in Variety. It has an anemic 25 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but we'll probably see it anyway due to our undying love of the first two movies.
Now we have a question for you: Who is the greatest robot character in movie history? Feel free to vote for »
'Wet Hot American Summer' Reboot Trailer Features All-Star Cast
2 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT
After teasing the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer reboot with a goofy, VHS-tinted teaser, Netflix has offered an official trailer with a hilarious, enticing look at the star-studded prequel series, First Day of Camp.
The clip begins with talk of blossoming summer love and fun, as well as an uncomfortable Camp Firewood meeting that's literally crashed by Paul Rudd's surly, too-cool counselor Andy. When chastised for being a week late, Andy replies: "Whatever. It smells weird. Who beefed?" (Notably, the counselor supervisor is played by H. Jon Benjamin, and with any luck, »
Leon Russell on His Lost Doc's Long, Strange Trip
2 July 2015 9:43 AM, PDT
Ask Leon Russell a straight question — say, about the documentary made about him in the early Seventies that's just now seeing the light of day — and the iconoclastic singer-songwriter's answer will eventually wind its way back to the subject after rambling down the crookedest of backroads. "We had a guy at the studio at the time, a harmonica player," he begins. "And one day he put a mic on his heart and started playing harmonica. He played more and more as his heartbeat got faster and faster, until he finally passed out. »

Watch Stephen Colbert Interview Eminem on Public Access Show
1 July 2015 2:08 PM, PDT
With his Late Show debut still months away, Stephen Colbert recently usurped the Michigan public access show Only in Monroe to discuss traffic with Eminem. The main guests on Colbert's overwhelmingly satirical show, which contains jokes about eating muskrat and local Yelp fights, were its regular hosts – former Miss America Kaye Lani Rafko-Wilson and registered nurse Michelle Baumann – but it's his 20-minute interview with "Marshall Mathers" midway through the show where things turn surreal (via Noisey).
The rapper, who wore an odd hoodie-blazer combo, explains to the seemingly naïve host that while he's from Michigan, »

Watch 'Steve Jobs' Battle for Domination in Thrilling Biopic Trailer
1 July 2015 11:43 AM, PDT
"Musicians play their instruments – I play the orchestra." That key line, from the new trailer for upcoming biopic Steve Jobs, is delivered by Michael Fassbender, as the enigmatic Apple mogul defends his position against co-founder Steve Wozniak.
"What do you do?" Wozniak (Seth Rogen) asks his business partner. "You're not an engineer. You're not a designer. You can't put a hammer to a nail. I built the circuit board. The graphical interface was stolen. So how come, 10 times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius. What do you do? »
Male Stripper to Movie Star: The Evolution of Channing Tatum
1 July 2015 8:33 AM, PDT
"I didn't want to move or act like a rich man. I wanted to dance in a pair of jeans. I wanted to dance like the man in the streets." – Gene Kelly
It's hard to imagine — let alone remember — living in a world where it wasn't a universally acknowledged truth that Channing Tatum used to be a stripper. Today, that particular chapter of his origin story seems as inextricable from the 35-year-old actor's story as Ginger Rogers is from Fred Astaire's career, or Scientology is from that of Tom Cruise, »

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Quiz Kids on Gay Marriage
30 June 2015 11:08 AM, PDT
Jimmy Kimmel tapped into the Darndest Things school of comedy on Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, sending a producer and cameraman out to the street to find out what kids knew about gay marriage in light of the Supreme Court's recent marriage equality ruling.
Per Kimmel, the bit was inspired by the frequent question posed by gay marriage critics, "How do I explain this to my kids?" As it turns out, today's youth is, for the most part, understanding and accepting of gay marriage — so long as they hear the question correctly. »

Jon Stewart Reveals Why Republicans Won't Win Gay Marriage Debate
30 June 2015 6:50 AM, PDT
After a week of pride and progress, Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show Monday and dismantled a weekend's worth of conservative punditry and — to quote Justice Antonin Scalia — "pure applesauce" over the Supreme Court's recent decisions on healthcare and marriage equality.
Stewart's primary focus was the reaction to the marriage equality decision, which drew every bit of fear-mongering from the survivors of what Stewart dubbed the "Good News-magedon." While classic arguments like the slippery slope towards polygamy and "Won't somebody please think of the anti-gay florists?" were on rotation, »

Garbus' latest documentary, a Netflix original titled What Happened, Miss Simone?, is her attempt to understand what the iconic singer and civil rights activist meant by that declaration.
