Watch Channing Tatum Tap-Dance in Coens' 'Hail, Caesar!' Trailer
5 hours ago
Hollywood movie-star abductions, crises of faith, film-within-a-film shenanigans, and Channing Tatum as a tap-dancing sailor: That's the high-brow/low-brow recipe for Hail Caesar!, the Coen Brothers' upcoming showbiz comedy set to hit theaters on February 5th, 2016.
The freewheeling first trailer offers a glimpse of a classic Coen plot: 1950s studio fixer Eddie Mannix finds himself overwhelmed on the set of Capitol Pictures' latest "prestige picture" Hail Caesar!, when dimwit leading man Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is abducted and held on a $100,000 ransom by a mysterious group called "The Future."
Janis Joplin Doc Trailer: Melissa Etheridge, Pink Praise Rock Icon
6 hours ago
"I started singing when I was about 17," late rock legend Janis Joplin reflects in the trailer for Amy Berg's documentary Janis: Little Girl Blue. "And I could sing. It was a surprise, to say the least." The clip, soundtracked by Joplin's raw belting of "Mercedes Benz," surveys the musician's musical legacy and her massive influence on many subsequent female rock and pop artists.
"She took a flag and made a place in rock and roll for women," says Melissa Etheridge. "She was the first." Pink adds that "Janis was »
Dwight Yoakam and Jack Black to Produce New Nashville Comedy
6 hours ago
There's a neighborhood in East Nashville known as "Little Hollywood," but it seems the city as a whole is adopting that moniker. Following in the footsteps of ABC's Nashville, Jack Black has partnered up with another Tenacious "D" — Dwight Yoakam — to produce a new comedy series set in Music City, according to Deadline. Titled Belles & Whistles, the half-hour show for Fox centers on a bored father who uproots his family from Silicon Valley to the country capital in search of music stardom.

Robert Kirkman has a crucial – but "awkward" – role with The Walking Dead: As both creator of the AMC show and writer of the ongoing comic series, he has an up-close view of other screenwriters dismantling his old work in the adaptation process. "It's me in a room with eight people, and I'll go, 'We did this in the comic,' and they go, 'I don't know if that's going to work' or 'It would be better if we did it this way,'" Kirkman told Seth Meyers during Thursday's episode of Late Night. »

Cue the John Williams theme music: Star Wars: The Force Awakens will make its grand debut on December 14th in a galaxy far, far away known as Los Angeles, California, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Disney and Lucasfilm did not comment on which of the city's theaters would host the premiere. It's also unclear whether any tickets will be made available to the general public, though Hollywood insiders will likely be fighting like ruthless rancors to score their own. The Force Awakens opens for the rest of the United States on December 18th. »
How to Make a Must-See Heist Movie in a Single Shot
8 October 2015 11:30 AM, PDT
It's early in the morning in Berlin, and a 23-year-old woman from Madrid named Victoria is dancing to her heart's content all alone in a nightclub. As she's leaving, the young woman meets some charming, roguish local guys, who invite her to venture out into the city streets looking for fun. Impulsively, she decides to go for it — and over the next two hours of gunfire, coke binges, high-speed pursuits and one major predawn bank heist, Victoria will get way more than she bargained for. And the "fun" never stops, »
Danny Boyle on 'Steve Jobs,' Sorkin and the Fassbender Effect
8 October 2015 9:43 AM, PDT
Danny Boyle is smiling and talking very, very, very excitedly. This is not unusual; in fact, an infectiously enthusiastic state combined with a mile-a-minute manner of speaking appears to be the 58-year-old filmmaker's default mode. He's just been asked a stock question, yet he's positively beaming as he winds his way through tangents about Silicon Valley, Shakespeare, Seth Rogen's sense of humor, and why it's easier to get extras to show up in San Francisco "for the price of a sandwich." Eventually, he arrives at an answer, somehow perfectly sticking the landing. »
Keanu Reeves Promotes Safe Driving in 'Speed' Spoof on 'Kimmel'
8 October 2015 8:39 AM, PDT
Keanu Reeves jumped behind the steering wheel of a flashy sports car and put the the pedal not completely to the metal in the thrillingly safe trailer for the faux film, A Reasonable Speed, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday.
Recalling Reeves' beloved Speed films crossed with the Fast and Furious franchise — but produced by the California Highway Patrol — the clip finds the action star and late-night host engaged in a high-stakes, low-velocity chase after a deal goes south. While props should go to Jimmy Kimmel for his asymmetrical haircut and neck tattoo, »
'Nashville' Recap: Good Intentions, Bad Reputations
8 October 2015 8:25 AM, PDT
The latest episode of Nashville was one of great losses — from Beverly's battle to come out of a coma to Daphne and Maddie's loss of innocence as they come to terms with their father's dirty dealings. Although it was a short scene, we got another look at the Three Men and a Baby rip-off homage. Avery is still deep in baby daddy drama as mama Juliette continues to party on the road. This time, she takes Luke into a bar and performs the Joan Jett rocker, "Bad Reputation." That she »
Megyn Kelly: Fox News Didn't Want a War With Donald Trump
8 October 2015 6:04 AM, PDT
Two months after Fox News host Megyn Kelly drew the ire of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump after targeting him with tough questions at the first Gop debate, Kelly spoke to Charlie Rose to reveal why the red-hot war of words between her and Trump burned out so quickly.
As Kelly told Rose (via Mediate), both she and Fox News felt it was bad for business to alienate Trump. "Neither one of us wanted any sort of a war with Donald Trump. We didn't think that benefitted the channel, we »
See 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' Cast Reunite for 40th Anniversary
7 October 2015 2:07 PM, PDT
Some key members of the Rocky Horror Picture Show cast reunited for an interview on Today to celebrate the cult classic's 40th anniversary and discuss the impact it had on their lives. "I've had so many people come up to me and say that film helped them through a dark time," Susan Sarandon, who played the film's Janet Weiss, said.
"The thing that resonated for me, more than anything, was 'Don't dream it, be it,' which was a really good slogan," said Tim Curry, who starred as transvestite Transylvanian Dr. »
Rick Moranis Admits He Turned Down 'Ghostbusters' Reboot Cameo
7 October 2015 12:11 PM, PDT
While the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot is a complete overhaul on the beloved comedy franchise, most of the main actors involved in the original series – Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver and Ernie Hudson – will appear in new cameo roles. Noticeably absent from that list, however, is Rick Moranis, who played Louis Tully in the original film and its sequel. After it was revealed that Moranis wouldn't appear in the reboot, the uproar over his absence was so vocal that Moranis granted a rare interview to admit that the new Ghostbusters production reached out to him, »
Donald Trump Is 'Master Brander,' Says Bill Clinton on 'Colbert'
7 October 2015 6:45 AM, PDT
Bill Clinton, once dubbed by President Obama as "Secretary of Explaining Stuff," dropped some knowledge on Tuesday's episode of The Late Show, telling Stephen Colbert why Donald Trump is holding strong in the polls. "Because he's a master brander," Clinton said, flatly. "And he's the most interesting character out there.
"And because he says something that overrides the ideological differences," he continued. "If you look at the first debate, a lot of those guys were competing for who could be the most politically correct on the answers. Trump says, 'Ok, »
Watch Jay Leno Return to 'Tonight Show' to Deliver Monologue
7 October 2015 6:29 AM, PDT
Jimmy Fallon pulled a hamstring midway through The Tonight Show monologue Tuesday, but thankfully there was someone in the building who could serve as emergency substitute. Jay Leno returned to the show where he spent over 20 years as host to deliver a five-minute monologue of political humor.
"The election is getting nasty. Ralph Nader called Hillary a corporatist and a militarist. Isn't that incredible … Ralph Nader still alive," Leno joked. Leno also called a presidential showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump the battle "between the Tortoise and the Bad Hair, »
Inside 'Red Oaks': An Eighties TV Show That's Not Ironic
6 October 2015 11:26 AM, PDT
"The Eighties were good to me," says Jennifer Grey, and considering she's best known for having the time of her life with Patrick Swayze in 1987's Dirty Dancing, that would make sense. "You know those people who rock that hairdo from the moment they got laid the most in their life? The Eighties are a bit like that for me."
'The Walking Dead': What to Know for Season 6
6 October 2015 9:42 AM, PDT
Sure, the West Coast prequel Fear the Walking Dead was a fine summer diversion (and may one day develop into a must-see show), but let's be honest: Zombie-lovers have mostly been drumming their rotting fingers since March, waiting for the original to come back.
This Sunday night, Rick and Carol and Glenn and the rest of Twd's ragtag band of survivors finally return, for the first of 16 Season Six episodes (to be split, as always, into two eight-episode batches). And while the fifth season ended with most of the characters »
'WWE Raw': New Day Rising
6 October 2015 8:22 AM, PDT
The easy pops for the Patriots and the cheap shots toward the Red Sox meant only one thing: WWE was back in Boston on Monday night.
In addition to the requisite hometown heat, the Massachusetts masses also got an eyeful of a returning Brock Lesnar, in addition to robust appearances from Boston's Sasha Banks and New England's most divisive son, John Cena. Mostly though, there was a lot of drama surrounding Kane's split personality, in addition to a big night for the New Day that suggested the company finally »
See 'Jackass' Gang Relive 15 Years of Wild Pranks, Scary Injuries
6 October 2015 7:30 AM, PDT
This month marks 15 years since Jackass introduced a feral group of fun-loving and foolhardy hooligans, hell-bent on destroying themselves (and some of their parents) for the pleasure of MTV viewers around the world. To celebrate, Rolling Stone invaded the homes of Johnny Knoxville, Steve-o, Bam Margera and, yes, Bam's folks to find out how it all started, what they think of its legacy now, and why Steve-o didn't close his mouth in the flying Porta Potty. Other Jackasses who participated in the video include Jason "Wee Man" Acuña, Ehren McGhehey, »
Julianne Moore, John Stamos Act in Taylor Swift Soap Opera on 'Corden'
6 October 2015 6:37 AM, PDT
James Corden took Taylor Swift's delightfully melodramatic lyrics to their logical conclusion on The Late Late Show Monday, using them as lines in a fake soap opera, The Bold and the Lyrical, co-starring Julianne Moore and John Stamos.
The sketch found Corden and Moore playing "James Cordone" and "Juliette Moore," two young, reckless lovers who take things way too far. The scene opens when Corden, donning a ridiculous black pompadour wig, saunters home one night with a weak explanation for his whereabouts: "I've been cruising. Can't stop, won't stop moving. »
