Nearly 17 Million People Watched ABC's Bruce Jenner Interview
Diane Sawyer’s interview with Bruce Jenner attracted a very big audience Friday night on ABC. Just under 17 million people watched the tastefully-done two-hour telecast, a big number for any TV show these days but particularly impressive because the chat aired on Fridays, when viewing levels are generally down. The Jenner interview did very well among viewers in all age demographic groups, scoring a 5.2 rating with adults under 50; it was also seen by about one in four younger women watching TV Friday. It will also likely rank as the most-watched TV broadcast this week. While news broadcasts generally don’t attract a lot of time-shifted viewing, there’s a good chance this one will add substantially to its tally once DVR ratings get calculated in the coming days. It would also be surprising if ABC doesn’t re-broadcast the special within the next few weeks, though as of it yet, »

Jared Leto Is Terrifying as the Joker in Suicide Squad—See the New Photo That Will Haunt Your Nightmares!
Say it with us now: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!! Jared Leto is unrecognizable as the Joker, as seen in a the first character photo for the new D.C. villains-themed film Suicide Squad that director and writer David Ayer tweeted on Friday night. The longtime heartthrob and frontman of rock group Thirty Seconds to Mars, who made our hearts melt in the '90s with his knack of leaning against walls in My So Called Life and who won an Oscar last year for a different physical transformation for Dallas Buyers Club, had weeks ago shocked his fans (the Echelon) by chopping off his long, majestic, glistening golden brown locks, bleaching his hair, dyeing it green and making his eyebrows »
Friday Box Office: 'Adaline' Bumps 'Furious' for a Day; 'Kurt Cobain' Big in 3 Theaters
Lionsgate's multi-decade age-stands-still drama "The Age of Adaline" beat out three-weekend champ "Furious 7" (Universal) Friday. The romance took in just under $5 million ($4.8 million) with "Furious 7" in second, edging it for the day due to opening day interest plus a decent Thursday night gross. "Furious" should still take its fourth and last weekend at number one, the first to do so in its initial weeks since the first "Hunger Games" three years ago. But the overall picture is more mixed. The Top Ten came in a bit under $24 million, marking the second lowest Friday of 2015 so far (and likely the lowest under September), and down sharply from $31 million the same day last year. The main reason is a lack of topline new studio product, with distributors avoiding competition a week before the juggernaut "The Avengers - Age of Ultron" opens domestically (after already scoring major initial returns its first week plus. »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Virgin Mountain’
Fusi, the hero of Icelandic director Dagur Kari’s fourth feature, is, to quote the cliche, a mountain of a man. Indeed, he is the virgin mountain of the title: Fat, 43 and still living with his mother, he incarnates the sad-sack sweet guy for which Ernest Borgnine’s Marty could serve as the prototype. Working in small, skillfully nuanced, always surprising increments, Kari, enabled by Gunnar Jonsson’s extraordinary performance, charts a moving, totally believable flowering of untapped potential as Fusi falls in love. Winner of the top prize and an acting award at Tribeca, “Virgin Mountain” could shine in arthouse play.
Fusi (Gunnar Jonsson) has created a safe, unchanging, extremely limited world for himself. Working as a baggage handler at the airport, he returns home to re-create the battle of El Alamein on his work table with the help of his only friend, Rolf (Arnar Jonsson). Nothing disturbs the »

Obama Pokes Fun at Gop Presidential Hopefuls at White House Correspondents' Dinner
Traditionally, the White House Correspondents Dinner involves good-natured jabs aimed at the president. But this year, the focus of the humor was aimed not so much at President Barack Obama, but rather at the Republicans who would like to have his job. From the ballroom podium at the Washington Hilton on Saturday evening, Obama delivered the event’s traditional “State of the Union Address of Jokes,” with lots to say about the 2016 declared or about-to-declare Republican presidential hopefuls. “Let’s face it, there is one issue on every reporter’s mind, and that’s 2016,” Obama told the

Interview: Jenn Brown talks 'Survivor: Worlds Apart'
"[H]appy people don’t make TV, most of the time," admits "Survivor: Worlds Apart" veteran Jenn Brown. "It's for drama. You want to see the fights. You want to see the people yelling. But the happy moments? There were so many great moments out there." You wouldn't necessarily know about those great moments based on how Jenn went out of the game. Two episodes after an Immunity Idol play that represented one of the "Survivor" season's most exciting moments, Jenn was ready to leave the game and tried to convince people to vote against her. Instead, the castaways took the opportunity to get rid of major threat Joe. But one episode later, Jenn was leaving after a decisive vote that saw even allies Shirin and Mike vote against her. Don't worry, though. Jenn was in on Shirin and Mike's votes. But at the time, she definitely left with a bad taste in her mouth. »

Can Minions or Jurassic World beat Avengers: Age of Ultron for no. 1 this summer?
After massive early year success for "Fifty Shades of Grey," "Cinderella" and "Furious 7," Hollywood believes it has a record breaking summer on its hands. Moviegoers are excited about returning franchise flicks such as "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation," "Ted 2," "Pitch Perfect 2," "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Magic Mike Xxl." Original flicks such as "Inside Out," "Spy" and "Trainwreck" have also created a tremendous amount of buzz. What everyone really wants to know though is… …who is going to finish no. 2? That's right, it would take some calamity of biblical proportions for "Avengers: Age of Ultron" not to win the summer. The original "Avengers" is the no. 3 highest grossing film of all time behind "Titanic" and "Avatar" (perhaps you've heard of them) and it's pre-release polling already has theater owners salivating over the prospect of the blockbuster hitting an all-time domestic opening. The contenders for the second slot? »

Barack Obama Brings Key & Peele "Anger Translator" Onstage at White House Correspondents Dinner!
Barack Obama got in plenty of jabs of his own at the 2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner, but for the real digs, he called his "Anger Translator," Luther! Key & Peele fans recognized ol' Luther right away as Keegan-Michael Key. Those unfamiliar with this bit quickly saw why the president called in the professional: An "Anger Translator" can say all the things Barack wishes he could! At a certain point, though, the Potus no longer needed backup. He hilariously overreacted all on his own, until Luther himself intervened, saying, "All due respect, sir, you don't need an anger translator! You need counseling!" Of course, Barack had no trouble expressing his thoughts »
