'Dark Knight Rises': Latest TV Promo Highlights Batman's New Ride (Video)

15 June 2012 4:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Dark Knight Rises has released yet another TV spot ahead of its July 20 release, and it's short and sweet. It also does a pretty good job of filling each of the 30 seconds with most of the main players -- Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman and Anne Hathaway all manage to appear -- and a new scene between Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne and Morgan Freeman's Lucius Fox. Lucius gives Bruce a rundown of "The Bat," the aerial vehicle previously teased in the other trailers. Their exchange ends with one of the presumably few lighthearted moments of the

Eric Church's 'Springsteen,' Taylor Swift's 'Tim McGraw' and 19 More Song Titles That Name-Check Famous People

15 June 2012 4:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

“Springsteen” is No. 1! No, we’re not fashioning a contribution to the Encyclopedia of Unnecessary Quotation Marks by putting Bruce’s name in quotes. He’s the subject -- sort of a country single by Eric Church that reached the top of the chart this week. Country fans’ politics may tend to skew a little more conservative than Bruce Springsteen’s, but even if they’re not down with Tom Joad, heartlanders sure do like to be reminded of having “Dancing in the Dark” as the soundtrack to their youthful crushes.

The game, which was purchased by Zynga in March after it had racked up more than 50 million downloads less than two months after its release, centers around two players taking turns drawing a picture to convey a guess-word to his partner.

Kristen Stewart on playing Bella Swan in 'Twilight': 'I have never not loved this character'

15 June 2012 3:26 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Since The Twilight Saga began and she took on the role of Bella Swan, there’s been no bigger champion of the series and characters than Kristen Stewart. This means it’s particularly annoying when there’s idle internet speculation that the actress has outgrown her role or is disdainful of the hit movies in any way. “It’s nuts,” Stewart says. “It’s insane! I have never not loved this character — ask anyone involved! I don’t really get it.”

Stewart speculates that it’s the photographs of her on the red carpet that’s to blame for any public misperception. »

Movie Talk With Owen and Lisa: Does 'Rock of Ages' deliver? Video

15 June 2012 3:21 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Rock of Ages – in theaters June 15 — made the transition from the Broadway stage to the silver screen. But how well does the film translate? In the latest episode of “Movie Talk With Owen and Lisa,” EW critics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum agree that Ages fumbled the move.

“The two romantic leads are so toothless and bland, this movie made me wish I was watching Zac Efron and Miley Cyrus,” Gleiberman says. “I would have forgiven all of that if this movie delievered the music. If the musical numbers were good — they’re not. That’s the problem.”

Listen: R.E.M.'s Peter Buck goes solo on '10 Million BC'

15 June 2012 2:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Since R.E.M. split, it sounds like guitarist Peter Buck has been spending time in the garage. The rocker is stepping out solo with a new album and now has "10 Million BC" to show for it. The boggy, Jon Spencer-styled track made its bow on Wfmu this week, with Buck's collaborator in The Baseball Project, Steve Wynn, introducing it. "10 Million BC" is from Buck's forthcoming, as-yet-untitled effort, with no word yet when to expect a whole package -- a package which may be released on vinyl-only. R.E.M. called it quits last September. And I've really enjoyed Michael Stipe's cameos on »

News Nuggets: Nick Offerman and Kerry Washington will announce Emmy nominations

15 June 2012 2:33 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Our own Tom O'Neil plays Oscar poker with Sasha Stone and Jeffrey Wells: "15 hours ago Awards Daily's Sasha Stone, Goldderby.com's Tom O'Neil and I kicked the 2012 Oscar ball around. Our consensus: 'Les Miserables,' 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' and 'Lincoln' in the Best Picture lead. And yet Tom and Sasha delivered some Lincoln pushback based on two factors: (a) Daniel Day-Lewis's Lincoln might be too quirky or extreme in some way, and (b) director Steven Spielberg might Spielberg-ize it -- he might not be able to muster the discipline to 'get out of the way' and just let the material play on its own terms." Hollywood Elsewhere Nick Offerman and Kerry Washington will announce the Emmy nominees: "Ron Swanson and Olivia Pope are teaming up.

Who did (and didn't) get standing ovations at Oscars?

15 June 2012 2:25 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

One of our forum posters, Opera Junky, kicks off a fascinating discussion about how often the audiences at the Oscars jump to their feet to fete a winner. As he writes: I was reviewing some clips on You Tube, and something occurred to me. Standing ovations are such strangely irregular occurrences at the Oscars, especially in the competitive acting categories. Some years go by there are no sustained ovations, as in last year with Colin Firth, Natalie Portman, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale. Other years, like this past year with everyone but Dujardin, there are multiple ovations. I went back and looked at the occurrences of standing ovations throughout the years.  It seems as though the first one [for Best Actor] I can find is Art Carney's win in 1974. There wasn't another one until 1988 when Dustin Hoffman won for "Rain Man." Since then there have been standing Os in 1989 (Daniel Day-Lewis), 1991-1994 (Anthony Hopkins, »

Review: Grammy doc 'A Death in the Family' looks at Whitney Houston's passing

Earlier this week, The Recording Academy debuted “A Death in the Family: The Show Must Go On.”  The 26-minute documentary details how the 54th annual Grammy Awards put together a tribute to Whitney Houston for the telecast 24 hours following her death. I was out of town and couldn’t attend the June 11 premiere and Q&A in Hollywood, but the short film is available for viewing on Grammy.com and will also be part of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The documentary is decidedly and deliberately non-showy: small talking heads often appear in a corner of a shot of an artist »
