'Parenthood' Showrunner Jason Katims Pens Emotional Farewell to Show (Guest Column)

39 minutes ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

I am driving up a twisty canyon road in Malibu on the way to film our biggest set piece of the final episode of Parenthood. I am driving through a fog so thick that I am on the verge of having to pull over. It has not rained in Los Angeles for two years, but now, on our final episode, the rain has been following us, mocking us, laughing at us the entire shoot. Our shooting schedule has changed countless times. Our usually chipper crew looks haggard. Our producer is fried. The unflappable Larry Trilling, who has directed more than

39 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

As of 2016, Disney will finally have its first Latina Princess, and she sounds pretty awesome. Princess Elena of Avalor will make her debut in a "special episode" of Sofia the First, set to air next year. As all you hardcore Sofia the First fans will remember, when she was brought into the royal family, Sofia (Modern Family's Ariel Winter) was entrusted with the mystical Amulet of Avalor, which has allowed her to speak to animals and summon other Disney princesses. This special episode will find the little princess finally learning the truth about her amulet, and that truth is pretty crazy. As it turns out, a 16-year-old princess named Elena has been trapped inside that amulet for decades, ever since her »

Ranking the 5 Best Editing Oscar Nominees

43 minutes ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's all about capturing the rhythm of the movie and these five contenders are all editorial gems: "American Sniper" is a ticking bomb about to explode simultaneously on the war front and home front; "Boyhood," the frontrunner, is a unique 12-year journey of adolescence told in real-time and patched together like a quilt; "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is a prism that spins wild pre-war and post-war memories; "The Imitation Game" captures the inner turmoil of a mathematical genius trying to break the Enigma code; and "Whiplash" is a war between instructor and student that builds to a frenzied drum solo. 1. Editors Joel Cox and Gary D. Roach provide a new psychological twist on violence for Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper," which is gaining Oscar momentum. Legendary Navy Seal assassin Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) is torn between military duty and family responsibility. And the opening lays it all out »

Everything You Need to Know About Parenthood's Finale Tonight (Grab. A. Dang. Hanky.)

1 hour ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

I've never cried more over a TV episode. And many of you will be saying the same thing after watching the Parenthood series finale tonight...And maybe, for the days that follow. The final hour of Jason Katims' six-season-old NBC masterpiece is impeccably crafted, deeply layered and emotionally resonate. You will cry. But it's also important to know: It's not depressing. The storyline itself is actually beautiful and uplifting and hopeful…But oh, how you will cry buckets on top of buckets. Because what Katims and his writing team can do nothing about is this sad fact: When the episode ends, we have to say goodbye to a very real family we fans feel like we have been a part of.

'Terminator: Genisys' Super Bowl ad drops early, full of new footage, old Arnold

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Super Bowl Xlix is only days away, but the commercials are already here. If this is the world we live in, perhaps SkyNet takeover would be a blessing in disguise? To that end, “Terminator: Genisys” has released their ad that will play during the 2015 Super Bowl. And man, it is full of new footage. Like many of you, I’m on the fence about this requel. Hollywood is getting a little too comfortable with using time travel to wipe away decades of lore. But this commercials seems like step in the right direction. We’ve got ridiculous stunts that disregard physics, an upgraded T-1000 complete with a new bag of tricks (projectile spears!), and this moment of badassery: Focusing on the action and Byung-hun Lee’s T-1000 could be because this spot is set to air during the testosterone-fueled football match of the year. But this choice to draw attention »

Tom Petty Super-Chill About Sam Smith Song Settlement

Tom Petty is tooootally cool with Sam Smith ripping off his song "I Won't Back Down." Not only did they settle the entire thing out of court, apparently everyone was totally civil and everything's really cool now. Petty even released a statement that wasn't one bit ... petty:  About the Sam Smith thing. Let me say I have never had any hard feelings toward Sam. All my years of songwriting have shown me these things can happen.  Most times you catch it before it gets out the studio door but in this case it got by. Sam's people were very understanding of our predicament and we easily came to an agreement. The word lawsuit was never even said and was never my intention. And no more was to be said about it. How it got out to the press is beyond Sam or myself. Sam did the right thing and I »
