Green Day storms offstage at iHeart Radio Festival in Las Vegas

22 September 2012 4:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The guys in Green Day may be in their forties now, but singer Billie Joe Armstrong can still throw a teen-style tantrum. During the band's performance at Friday's iHeart Radio event in Las Vegas, Armstrong went into a lengthy, profanity-laced rant after they were give a "one-minute warning" from the tech guys backstage.  A few bars into the '90s classic "Basket Case," Armstrong stops the song and announces, "I'm going to play a f*cking new song. F*ck this sh*t. Gimme a f*cking break. One minute left. One minute f*cking left. You're going to give me one minute?" Armstrong added, "I've been around »

22 September 2012 2:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Three of the victims of the Aurora, Col. shooting have sued Cinemark USA, the owner of the theater, claiming that the theater should have had armed security guards on duty.

22 September 2012 2:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Two days after getting arrested for possession of hashish in Texas, Fiona Apple seized the opportunity at her Houston concert to give her side of the story.

Movie power rankings: 'The Master' takes down 'Captain America' and 'The Avengers'

22 September 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Love it or hate it, it's the movie that has everybody talking, even as the multiplexes get more and more crowded as the season moves on. Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" features at least two Oscar-worthy performances (Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and possibly Amy Adams) and some truly stunning visuals. Furthermore, the Scientology angle is less prominent than expected, which has surprised some critics and moviegoers. While it's off to a great start in wide release, it remains to be seen ho much the general public will embrace "The Master." Likewise, it will be interesting to see how the »

Alicia Keys Explains the Disappearance of the Video for ‘Put It in a Love Song’

22 September 2012 1:52 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Alicia Keys and Beyoncé fans have wondered for far too long why the music video for "Put It in a Love Song" — filmed back in 2010 in Brazil with a Carnival-esque theme — never popped up in their endless (and fruitless) YouTube searches. Speaking to Essence magazine, Alicia Keys finally explains that, "We had a ball shooting the video. It just so happens that the whole thing, for some reason or another, didn’t quite come together so we just decided to leave it." But leave it where? In Keys' mansion? At Beyoncé's palace? Maybe in some random music producer's file cabinet? At least we know they left it somewhere, so there's still hope. »

Friday Box Office Top Ten: Trouble With the Grosses, Lawrence Leads Weak Field

22 September 2012 1:29 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There's no getting around the truth: business continues to be bad. Although the top ten grossed a bit above last week's mediocre numbers, by this point most year's numbers are recovering with new, stronger releases upgrading performance. But compared to a year ago, grosses are down by a disastrous one third! Last year, three films grossed $5 milliion or more on Friday. This year, none did. The battle for #1 won't be resolved for sure until Monday, although the full weekend estimates will likely shift the top three. For their modestlevel of expense and ability to grow audiences in upcoming weeks, both "End of Watch" and "Trouble With the Curve"  show promise. But positive studio balance sheets won't make theater owners happy when they see a continuation of several weeks of box office slump that shows signs of getting worse, not better. 1.

Google’s Office to Basically Play Itself in Interns

22 September 2012 12:08 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Back in February, Vulture's Claude Brodesser-Akner reported that Wedding Crashers duo Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson were reuniting in the forthcoming film Interns as a pair of newly jobless forty-somethings who decide to start fresh as — you guessed it — interns at a "Google-like" dotcom startup. Google took the hint and granted the movie's producers use of its Mountain View campus, which will serve as a set this week, complete with actual employees to double as extras. Let's just hope Vince and Owen aren't outshone by all the lavish Google amenities. »

Friday Report: Three Middling Movies Compete for First Place

22 September 2012 11:30 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

House at the End of The Street, End of Watch and Trouble with the Curve were all in a heated race for first place on Friday, though none of them were very impressive. At least they all did better than Dredd, which is looking like a major misfire at this point.House at the End of the Street narrowly took the top spot on Friday with an estimated $4.64 million from 3,083 locations. That's noticeably higher than recent "House" horror movies Silent House ($2.66 million) and Dream House ($2.89 million), but still on the low end for horror movies in general. For example, that gross is a bit behind that of September 2010's Devil ($4.8 million), which was considered a disappointment at the time. The Jennifer Lawrence movie is on pace for between $12 and $13 million for the weekend.End of Watch wasn't far behind with an estimated $4.6 million from 2,730 theaters. That's about on par with »

‘Gangnam Style’ Is Now the Most Liked YouTube Video Ever

22 September 2012 10:36 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The South Korean rapper's horse dancing video has won over not just Ellen and Britney, but the entire YouTubing world. "Gangnam Style" now has nearly 2.4 million likes on YouTube, the most on the site and almost twice as many as Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" — which currently tops the clearly out-of-date "Most Liked" YouTube Charts. It even has nearly a million more likes than Lmfao's "Party Rock Anthem" (viewed 480 million times), despite being something of a rip-off of that fine piece of work.  »

Box Office: 'House at the End of the Street' and 'Trouble with the Curve' battle Friday

22 September 2012 10:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Moviegoers are sending strange messages to Hollywood executives after the mixed results from Friday's box office. "House on the End of the Street" opened with just over $4.6 million on Friday for what should be a $12-14 million weekend. That's somewhat under pre-release polling which predicted the horror flick starring Jennifer Lawrence and Elisabeth Shue might hit $17-18 million for the weekend.  However, "Street" isn't the only film that's underperforming, but more on that later. Surprising in second and seriously over performing to pre-release polling is David Ayer's "End of Watch." The critically acclaimed drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena and »

Emmys 2012 Predictions: Outstanding Drama Series

22 September 2012 10:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Time for Dan and I to wrap up our Emmy picks for who should and will win all the major categories with Outstanding Drama Series. Your nominees: "Boardwalk Empire" "Breaking Bad" "Downton Abbey" "Game of Thrones" "Homeland" "Mad Men" Should win Alan's pick: "Homeland" had a fantastic debut season, but the two AMC series remain the cream of the crop, and I would say "Breaking Bad" season 4 (with the relentless intensity of the Walter White/Gus Fring cold war) was a little better than "Mad Men" season 5 (which experimented stylistically while also giving us a Don Draper at war with »

Box office update: 'House at the End of the Street' wins Friday with $4.6 million, but 'End of Watch' hot on its tail

22 September 2012 9:52 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

We know Jennifer Lawrence lives in The House at the End of the Street, but where does that film call home?

The top spot of the box office, that’s where.

On a Friday that made it clear that no film will earn $15 million this weekend, The House at the End of the Street (or #Hates if you’re one of those young whippersnappers using the Twitter) proved most robust. House scared up $4.6 million and finished in first place, yet the critically savaged horror tale should follow the typical horror trajectory and prove frontloaded. It will likely finish the weekend with just about $12.5 million, »
