Could there really be a Gilmore Girls reunion in the works? According to Scott Patterson, that might not be such a far-off dream. The cast is already planning to reunite at next month's Atx festival in Austin, Texas, but Patterson recently appeared on the popular Gilmore Guys podcast to give us a little bit of hope for something more. "There are talks going on at the moment," Patterson revealed. "I can't really go into any detail, but there is some activity. So I'm hopeful, and you know, I'm in. I think it would be a big event, and I think it would be a great fan celebration. They deserve it." Could it be?! We are so skeptical, but we want to believe. We're »

‘Tomorrowland’ Earns $725,000, ‘Poltergeist’ Scares Up $1.4 Million on Thursday Night
Disney opted to limit the Thursday showings of the George Clooney sci-fier to what it dubbed “movie palaces” in order to highlight director Brad Bird’s vision. It noted that “Tomorrowland” scored a $1,077 theatre average, which would have given it $2.7 million had it played on 2,500 screens and $3.2 million if it had been launched at 3,000 theaters — placing it in the same range as “World War Z” and “Tron: Legacy” with $3.6 million, “X-Men: First Class” at $3.3 million, “Inception” at $3 million, and “Interstellar at $2.7 million.
“Tomorrowland,” which carries a $180 million price tag, opens Friday at 3,972 U.S. locations. It’s on track to debut to $40 million for the three-day weekend and around $50 million for the four-day period. “Tomorrowland” also opens in 65 foreign markets.

Netflix's 'Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp' Confirms Crazy Famous Cast With First-Look Photos
Netflix and "Wet Hot American Summer" co-creators Michael Showalter and David Wain blew our minds earlier this year when they revealed that their series return to the cult classic film, subtitled "First Day of Camp," would include nearly every one of the movie's now-pretty-damn-famous ensemble cast. Read More: Watch: 'Wet Hot American Summer' Netflix Series Confirms Oscar-Nominated, Mega-Star Cast And today, we have proof that they are not filthy liars, with the below eight photos from the set, featuring stars Michael Showalter, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Marguerite Moreau, Janeane Garofalo and Paul Rudd. We also have confirmation of an important fact: "First Day of Camp" refers to the first day of the camp season chronicled in the original film -- meaning that despite 15 years passing for the actors, the characters they're playing are actually two months »

Michael Fassbender says his 'Macbeth' is suffering from Ptsd
Cannes - The last film in competition debuted at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and that meant it was time for two of the world's most respected and photogenic stars to get their moment in the spotlight. So, yes, the global media were quite excited about Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender taking the podium for "Macbeth's" official press conference. Justin Kurzel's new adaptation of "Macbeth" is a stylish, gritty and intense depiction of William Shakespeare's classic bard. Fassbender plays the title role passionately and Cotillard (basically France's Cate Blanchett) takes on his Lady. Kurzel expands on the material by including some beautiful and gruesome war sequences that frame the story in a slightly different light. Fassbender says he experienced the play when he was 15 and later when he was in grad school, but was taking on the iconic role for the first time. It was a conversation with the Aussie director, »

Cannes: Studiocanal, Impuls Pictures Announce Output Deal
Cannes –Adding another building block to the most powerful indie distribution structure in the world, Euro film-tv group Studiocanal has signed an output deal for Switzerland with indie film distributor Impuls Pictures on all Studiocanal international productions.
The news comes as The Weinstein Company U.S. pick-up “Macbeth,” co-financed, distributed and sold by Studiocanal world premiered at Cannes to impressive reviews, and the Studiocanal-sold “Early Man” and competition player “Mon Roi” have near sold out at Cannes.
The Studiocanal-Impuls pact takes in Studiocanal’s flagship titles at Cannes such as Aardman’s Nick Park-directed “Early Man,” unveiled just before the market, Stephen Frears’ “The Program” (pictured) with Ben Foster, “We Are Your Friends,” nWave’s “Robinsoe Crusoe,” the latest Ben Stassen 3D movie, and the “Untitled Doanald Crowhurst Project,” from James Marsh, starring Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz.

Murderous 'Macbeth' Is Perfect Fit for Justin Kurzel (Video)
Though you wouldn’t really expect the director of "Snowtown" to adapt "Twelfth Night" or "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," Justin Kurzel is a perfect fit for "Macbeth." Graduating from Critics’ Week to Cannes competition with Harvey Weinstein behind him, the Australian also segues comfortably from real-life serial killers to one of Shakespeare’s most notorious head cases. This is just the intelligent and intense sophomore feature we’d hoped for. By casting Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard as the murderous couple unhinged by ambition, Kurzel guarantees a sexy, subtle, mesmerising centre to his film. What’s surprising is how unusually Scottish the ‘Scottish Play’ has become in his hands, from location work amid fiercely beautiful landscape and torrid weather to the diction; it’s fitting that in a year when Scotland has asserted its strength in British politics, Macbeth has been freed of Rp. The opening scenes establish an approach. »

‘Macbeth’: Cannes Review
Show people may superstitiously refuse to call Macbeth anything other than "the Scottish play," but the producers of this latest film version have lucked out by assembling cast and crew elements that make for an intensely compelling work. Although tradition is upheld with a Dark Ages-Early Christian period setting, actually shot in Scotland for once (unlike the 1971 Roman Polanski version), in most other respects Australian director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) filters Shakespeare's tragic story of murderous ambition through a resolutely modern sensibility. Comparisons with Game of Thrones will be inevitable, and not always flatteringly intended, but they won't

Cannes Film Review: ‘Macbeth’
As the shortest, sharpest and most stormily violent of William Shakespeare’s tragedies, “Macbeth” may be the most readily cinematic: The swirling mists of the Highlands, tough to fabricate in a theater, practically rise off the printed page. So it’s odd that, while “Romeo and Juliet” and “Hamlet” get dusted off at least once a generation by filmmakers, the Scottish Play hasn’t enjoyed significant bigscreen treatment since Roman Polanski’s admirable if tortured 1971 version. The wait for another may be even longer after Justin Kurzel’s scarcely improvable new adaptation: Fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it’s a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period. Though the Bard’s words are handled with care by an ideal ensemble, fronted by Michael Fassbender and a boldly cast Marion Cotillard, it’s the Australian helmer’s fervid sensory storytelling that makes this a Shakespeare pic for the »

10 Stories You Might Have Missed: Amy Schumer teams with ‘Bridesmaids’ director
Amy Schumer partnered with Judd Apatow for this summer’s “Trainwreck,” and now she’s set to team with another big name in comedy for another feature film: She’s making a movie to be directed by Paul Feig, who helmed “Bridesmaids” and this summer’s “Spy.” The new film will be an action-comedy akin to Feig’s “The Heat” and will follow a mother and daughter trapped in a vacation gone wrong, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Schumer will star in the movie and co-write the script alongside with her sister, Kim Caramele. Schumer has been making waves in Hollywood lately with her Comedy Central sketch comedy series and with a hosting duties at the MTV Movie Awards. Time magazine gave her a place on its “100 Most Influential People” list this year. Many of her sketches have struck a refreshing chord with female viewers, especially last month’s “Girl, »

Rick Ross and Jay Z meet Whitey Bulger in new 'Black Mass' trailer
We already got one taste of Scott Cooper's upcoming Whitey Bulger gangster saga "Black Mass" on the heels of CinemaCon. That teaser trailer, framed by an unsettling moment over a dinner table, introduced us to just what Johnny Depp is doing in the lead role. A new taste, courtesy of the UK trailer for the film, adds some style to the equation. Anachronism be damned, they just went ahead and dropped Rick Ross and Jay Z's "The Devil is a Lie" over flashy images of Bulger's life of crime in and around Boston, talking to little old ladies in the neighborhood, smashing his foot into some dude's face, etc. Awesome. And the sell continues to do exactly what you'd expect it to: play up Depp's transformation. But obviously this cast is stacked: Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Jesse Plemons, Peter Sarsgaard, Dakota Johnson, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, »

Interview: Rodney Lavoie Jr. and Sierra Dawn Thomas talk 'Survivor: Worlds Apart'
"Survivor: Worlds Apart" fourth and fifth place finishers Rodney Lavoie Jr. and Sierra Dawn Thomas called me as a package deal on Thursday (May 21) morning following the "Survivor" finale. The pairing probably spared Rodney lots of repetition about the various sexism and misogyny charges leveled through the season and discussed through the finale. Those issues came up in our conversation, but it wasn't the meat of the exit interview. In a season with a 6-1-1 vote, I let Sierra and Rodney defend casting their respective votes for Carolyn and Will instead of eventual winner Mike. We discussed a few strategic points in the game, we circled around the sexist comments, the edit and who apologized to whom. And we talked about Rodney's birthday and his feelings about Tom Brady's suspension in Deflategate. Which Rodney compares to excessive attention to "Survivor" sexism. Paired interviews are a good way to deflect problematic questions! »

Robin Lord Taylor ('Gotham') on showing 'human side' of 'nasty' Penguin [Exclusive Video]
"He is objectively horrible. No one should ever forget that fact. If anyone starts to feel bad about Penguin getting his face bashed in, it's okay, he's kind of deserved it," says Robin Lord Taylor about playing a young Oswald Cobblepot, also known as the Penguin, in Fox's "Batman" prequel "Gotham," which completed its first season on May 4. (Watch our complete video chat below.) -Break- Ben McKenzie on if we'll ever see Batman on 'Gotham' [Exclusive Video] But he's glad viewers can sympathize with his fledgling supervillain. "That was what I was going for when creating the character, and also what [executive producer] Bruno Heller was going for and [executive producer] Danny Cannon," says Taylor, "was to find the human side to these larger than life characters … I get responses on social media from people like, 'Don't hurt Oswald!' and 'He's always getting beaten up,..." »
Brantley Gilbert Talks New Music and Marrying The One Who Almost Got Away
Brantley Gilbert has so much to celebrate! His recently released Just As I Am: Platinum Edition soared to No. 1 on iTunes' Top Country Chart and hit No. 8 in the All-Genre rankings, and he's soon to be married to the gal whom he has sweetly described as "the one that got away." Though now he should really call Amber Cochran the girl who almost got away, right? The couple have known each other for 10 years, dating on and off for five. Gilbert admits he lost her because, he tells E! News, "he was making some decisions and running with some folks, and living in a way she wasn't going to be a part of." Gilbert says he didn't just lose Amber, either. Photos: 7 »
Chris Pratt Is Already Apologizing for Anything Offensive He Might Say During Jurassic World Press Tour: ''I Am Just Dumb''
Chris Pratt is taking all the necessary precautions to have a smooth press tour. The actor hilariously took to his Facebook page tonight to write out a lengthy apology to fans. For what, you ask? Well, that's a very valid question, especially since Pratt hasn't actually done anything to be sorry for, but he might, and that's why he's saying sorry. The Jurassic World star basically wants to put it out there now that should he say anything that comes off offensive, even in the slightest, during his upcoming press tour for the flick, he didn't mean it. "I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming »
Pete Davidson Live-Tweets His Harry Potter Movie Marathon: The Boy Who Lived Is ''Dope as F--k''
Warning: Spoilers ahead. With Saturday Night Live on hiatus for the summer, Pete Davidson—who at 21 is the youngest member of the current cast—spent last night watching the first two Harry Potter movies and live-tweeting his foul-mouthed appreciation for the Boy Who Lived throughout. For example: "Harry is at Hogwarts for 2 days and already becomes the Seeker. Muthaf--kas a legend," the funnyman tweeted while watching the first film in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Noting one of the key moments toward the end of the movie, he wrote, "The team is in trouble and Ron Weasley steps the f--k up and wins a brilliant game of chess." A further sampling »
