DreamWorks Animation hasn't really had a lot to brag about over the last few years, even with quality franchises like How to Train Your Dragon, they're still struggling to stay on top, and have had trouble pleasing their shareholders. But the animation studio is marching onward and they've just announced a new project called Boss Baby, slated for release by 20th Century Fox on March 18th, 2016. THR has the report on the new project with word that Alec Baldwin will voice a fast-talking briefcase-carrying baby who makes his seven-year old brother jealous in the film described as a fantastical comedy (obviously). Read on! Here's a look at some concept art for DreamWorks Animation's Boss Baby from THR: Could the new animation film be inspired by this sketch from "Saturday Night Live" last year? That's likely not the case since animated films are in development and worked on for years before hitting theaters, »

Michael Che has had an incredibly busy year writing for "SNL," summering at "The Daily Show," and joining "Weekend Update" as permanent co-anchor, but he still has time to reflect on his sketch pitches that didn't quite make it to air. On "Late Night with Seth Meyers," the comic opened up about his idea for "12 Days Not a Slave," a skit that centered around the days following slavery's abolition. I think we're a little poorer as a society without it. »

Premiere week ratings are in: NBC and CBS have reasons to celebrate while Fox’s numbers are far from utopian.
NBC led the first week of the 2014-15 broadcast season by a wide margin in the key adults 18-49 demo, while CBS was tops among total viewers. Though NBC’s demo victory is more enviable from an advertiser perspective, CBS has the important bragging point of being the only network to show a gain among 18-49 compared to last fall—CBS was up 9 percent in the demo, while NBC, ABC and Fox were down between 3 and 9 percent each (full charts »

It has just been announced that Re-Animator: The Musical will return for new performances in Hollywood this October with new performers and brand new songs:
““Re-Animator ™ the Musical” tells the story of Herbert West, a brilliant young medical student who has created a glowing green serum that can bring the dead back to life. What should be a medical breakthrough results in hideous monstrosities and ghastly consequences. “I guess he just wasn’t fresh enough,” is West’s constant refrain in his quest for fresh subjects. Graham Skipper, who won a Best New Performer Award at the New York Musical Theater Festival for his crowd-pleasing turn, returns as the demented young genius.
And operatic Jesse Merlin is back as Dr. Carl Hill who loses his head for Meg, the dean’s beautiful daughter, only to actually lose it at the hands of Herbert West. But thanks to the glowing re-agent, »

We’ve seen a few images from the film over the past few weeks, but now we have the first poster and trailer for Inherent Vice, the latest highly-anticipated offering from writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood), and you can check them both out right here…
Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another »

Sexually unapologetic women are all over TV these days: From “Outlander” to “Orphan Black" The Starz series, with its “revolutionary” wedding episode, joins a several recent shows "that treat the sexual activities of their leading ladies with refreshing matter-of-factness and genuine interest,” says Maureen Ryan. She adds: "But almost lost amid this welcome expansion of protagonists is a really important fact: In these narratives, sexual women are not shamed by the shows themselves for their desires. The women own their sexuality and the narratives are interested in exploring their desires -- and in judging their mistakes, carnal and otherwise, without stealthily blaming them for being sexual in the first place." Study: Tweeting while watching TV can leave you with fewer brain cells University of Sussex researchers found that "people who used a higher number of media devices concurrently also had smaller grey matter density in the part of the brain »

The debut of the 40th season of NBC’s Saturday Night Live was broadcast over the weekend and Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt hosted the premiere episode which some people think is one of the better, more consistently funny episodes in a good while, and others feel it is a mixed bag. Regardless of where you stand, there are two skits that stood out and has had everyone talking. The first gives us a glimpse of the future of Marvel movies and how the superhero studio just can’t fail — no matter what they produce. After the massive box office success of Gotg, it became clear that the Marvel brand can sell just about anything, including a film about a comic book most people haven’t read. Watch the Marvel SNL parody trailer that lampoons Ant-Man and reveals Marvel’s future slate of superheroes you’ve never heard of. »
Paul F. Tompkins' show "Speakeasy" is a great interview show that's featured folks like Marc Maron, Busy Philipps, Lizzy Caplan, and Bob Saget. You know, celebrities who can actually speak well. It's nice. This week Tompkins invited on John Mulaney, the "SNL" writer and new "Mulaney" star who apparently wanted to be Desi Arnaz growing up. I owned a copy of Vivian Vance's biography by the age of 16 so I can't protest this. "Mulaney" premieres October 5 on Fox. (Via SplitSider) »

Steve Aoki will celebrate the release of his new album "Neon Future I" tomorrow (Sept. 29), but has even more coming down the pike to get excited for For the second time in his career, the star DJ and producer recently cracked the Hot 100 and the top 10 of Billboard's Dance/Electronic Songs tally as lead artist, with "Delirious (Boneless)" with Chris Lake and Tujamo featuring Kid Ink.

There was no curbing the enthusiasm of audience members during the Q-and-a session portion of Sunday’s Citi Presents Larry David and David Steinberg in Conversation. Some of the more cringe-worthy moments: three women begging for hugs from Mr. David after propositioning him for dates (he obliged the hugs), one guy asking him to autograph a DVD copy of season 2 of “Curb your Enthusiasm” and then bum rushing the stage, and an aspiring female comedian desperately pleading for David to have a conversation with her “in real life,” a request that drew equal parts awkward laughter and boos. Of course, the gruff Emmy-winning “Seinfeld” co-creator handled it all with signature bone-dry wit, at one point telling a fan, “Thank you for that idiotic question.”
Produced by Carolines on Broadway’s live entertainment division and held at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown L.A., it was the unexpected bursts »

There was a lot of talk about how big of a risk Guardians of the Galaxy was for Marvel Studios, and on some level it was. But after the film’s massive box office success (it’s currently the highest grossing film of the year stateside), it became clear that the Marvel brand has now somewhat overshadowed the studio's actual content—audiences trust that a Marvel movie will be fun, humorous, and entertaining, and so there’s a certain amount of built-in audience Marvel can expect for the properties that the studio chooses to develop. When Chris Pratt hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, the variety series opted to poke some fun at this notion by putting together a trailer for some of Marvel’s other upcoming projects. Personally, I would buy a ticket for Pam 2: The Winter Pam in a heartbeat. Watch the Marvel SNL parody video after the jump, »

Walmart is firing back at Tracy Morgan's lawsuit and claiming that the 45-year-old comedian is responsible "in whole or in part" for the critical injuries he sustained when his tour bus crashed with a Walmart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike back on June 7.

It seems that every year, one or two independent films successfully make the jump from film festivals and art house theaters to the multiplexes. This year, that movie is writer and director Craig Johnson’s The Skeleton Twins. Starring Saturday Night Live alums Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig as estranged twins that come together after a botched suicide attempt, The Skeleton Twins provides audiences with a sometimes heartbreaking, but ultimately life-affirming look at the meanings of family and friendship.
The movie opens with a brief prologue flashback sequence of young Milo and Maggie as they prepare for Halloween. After the brief set up showing their previous relationship, we flash to present day where Milo (Bill Hader) is visibly drunk and preparing to kill himself. On the other side of the country, Maggie (Kristen Wiig) is on the same wavelength, instead choosing pills over Milo’s booze, drowning, and slit wrist combo. »

Bill Hader on “SNL” newbie Pete Davidson: "I told Lorne Michaels about him” Davidson, the breakout star of "SNL's" season premiere, has a small part in Hader and Amy Schumer’s movie “Trainwreck” from director Judd Apatow.

I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s wonderful!’” Then, Hader says Michaels surprised him with a question: “And then he said, “Uh, also, do you want to host?’ It was a total afterthought!” Plus: See Davidson, Hader and Schumer together on the set of "Trainwreck." “The Simpsons” paid a brief tribute to Joan Rivers Rivers was a last-minute addition to the season premiere, appearing in a mythical “Jewish Heaven.” Says exec producer Al Jean: "About a week after she passed away, »
