Demi Lovato Kicks ‘Bae’ Guilherme Vasconcelos’ Butt with Her Jiu-Jitsu Skills

17 February 2017 7:14 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Demi Lovato may be a white belt in jiu-jitsu, but she’s kicking butt and taking names.

The songstress showed off her combat skills against boyfriend and Mma Bellator fighter Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos in an Instagram video on Friday.

“When you kick bae’s ass,” Lovato captioned the clip of the pair playfully wrestling around at the Unbreakable Performance Gym in West Hollywood.

And did you catch her Ronda Rousey-like armbar at the end?

The pop star, 24, and Brazilian welterweight, 30, were first linked back in July when an insider told People they “had a quick fling” that ended shortly after. »

Sylvester Stallone Does Pilates With Daughter Sophia For the First Time: 'It Ain't Cute'

11 February 2017 8:14 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If Rocky can't handle Pilates, who can?

Joining his 20-year-old eldest daughter Sophia, actor Sylvester Stallone, known for kicking butt and taking names in the classic Rocky flicks, gave the trendy core exercise a try on Friday. The workout was so intense, he even compared it to taking on Rocky Balboa boxing rivals Clubber Lang and Captain Ivan Drago, but "before breakfast."

Watch: Sylvester Stallone Reacts to Daughters Being Named Miss Golden Globe 2017: 'I'm Just Along for the Ride' 

"Brutal!" the 70-year-old actor captioned an Instagram testimonial featuring both him and his daughter post-Pilates. "This is an amazing workout but definitely not for the faint of heart. I've lifted weights, I have boxed, wrestled, track and field, played football and many other sports… But this workout pushes you to the limit… and beyond!"

In the clip, Stallone let his followers know what to expect if they decide to give the workout a shot.

Sylvester Stallone Tries Out Pilates with Daughter Sophia: ‘The Name Sounds Cute, But It Ain’t Cute!’

10 February 2017 8:06 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sylvester Stallone is one of the most recognizable actors in the world thanks to his iconic role as Rocky, but on Friday it was a different kind of workout that had him panting for breath.

The Creed actor, 70, joined daughter Sophia Rose, 20, at the gym for a pilates workout and seemed stunned by the “brutal” workout.

“I gotta admit that was brutal,” the actor said in a video on Instagram, his daughter by his side. “For anyone who has never tried pilates, the name sounds cute but it ain’t cute! It’s tough. Oh my God.”

Every Action Star That Needs to Be in Expendables 4

9 February 2017 7:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sylvester Stallone is the master at making the most out of simplicity. So good is this action legend at taking a basic idea and making it exist forever, that eventually he tries to give said idea a certain degree of gravitas. How does he do this you say?

Take Rocky Balboa. In the first film, this lovable schlub just wants to have a girlfriend and go the distance in a dream title fight. By the fourth film in this wondrous saga, Rocky is defending America on Russian soil and beating a fighter who (realistically) would have Ko'd the Italian Stallion in 1 round. In fact, Rocky was almost Ko'd in one round, however, the referee let it go on. How's that for Sylvester Stallone making the most of something simple?

He did the same thing with Rambo. In the first film, John Rambo was a simple man who just wanted to »

'John G. Avildsen: King of the Underdogs': Film Review | Santa Barbara 2017

8 February 2017 12:50 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A Santa Barbara world premiere documentary, John G. Avildsen: King of the Underdogs, opens cleverly, on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum where Rocky Balboa ended his training in the first Rocky movie. An interviewer asks passersby if they know who directed Rocky. Someone guesses Spielberg, others are completely befuddled. Of course in a sense the question is unfair. How many people would know the names of many movie directors besides Spielberg, Scorsese, and maybe one or two others? Directors have never been anywhere near as well known as the stars they helped to create. But this effective opening »

Oscars: What Should Have Won – Network over Rocky for Best Picture

6 February 2017 1:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Graeme Robertson on why Network should have won Best Picture at the 49th Academy Awards…

The Oscars celebrating the best of 1976 were a rarity, in that, almost all of the nominees for Best Picture are truly excellent and have gone on to become celebrated classics.

While Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky ultimately triumphed against its formidable competition, I feel, despite loving Rocky and the franchise it spawned, that it perhaps didn’t deserve to be named as Best Picture of 1976.

To me, the award should have gone to the brilliant razor sharp media satire that is Network.

Network follows the exploits of TV network Ubs and the complete and utter breakdown of its long-standing news anchor Howard Beale, who at has just been told he is to be fired in two weeks due to increasingly dwindling viewing figures.

Left on by his ratings-hungry bosses for his final broadcasts, Beale manages to »

The Honorees at the 2017 PGA Awards

25 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A TV legend, big screen players, and one of the year’s most celebrated films earn honors.

James L. Brooks

Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television

To build a highlight reel of memorable moments from the television career of Brooks is a challenge that few editors would want to undertake. But the 20-time Emmy winner, whose CV includes such groundbreaking series as “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Taxi” and “The Simpsons,” and is this year’s recipient of the Producers Guild Awards’ Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television, was recently charged with just such a task. Brooks found that the easiest path to a solution was to recall the program where the collaboration between talent in front of and behind the camera gelled. “Everything is a marriage of actors and writers, and what makes those stories happen is that if it’s a good coupling,” he says.

Vin Diesel: how Paul Walker & Sidney Lumet impacted his career

15 January 2017 9:53 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ben Mortimer Jan 23, 2017

Vin Diesel reflects on xXx, the death of Paul Walker, and the impact on his career of Sidney Lumet...

Hollywood may have been built on the cult of the movie star, but in an industry now dominated by branded franchises like Star Wars, Marvel and Bond, it’s notable how rare they’ve become. For all the millions raked in by Iron Man and Star Wars movies, audiences don’t turn out for Robert Downey Jr. or Harrison Ford, they come to watch Tony Stark and Han Solo.

In this climate, there are perhaps a handful of actors who can draw audience based on nothing more than their presence in a movie, and perhaps none more successful than Vin Diesel. Since his breakthrough role in Pitch Black, Diesel has been the leading man in two blockbuster franchises: The Fast And The Furious and Riddick, and with xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage, »

‘Death Race 2050’ Exclusive Clip: Roger Corman Talks ‘Bigger’ Sequel to 1975 Cult Classic

11 January 2017 2:31 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 1975, the world was first introduced to the Roger Corman-produced cult action film “Death Race 2000.” Directed by Paul Bartel and starring David Carradine (“Kill Bill: Volume 2”) and Sylvester Stallone (“Rocky”), the film follows a murderous Transcontinental Road Race in a dystopian American society. Over the years, it garnered cult acclaim and eventurally produced a remake in 2008 followed by two direct-to-dvd sequels.

But now Roger Corman is back with a direct sequel to the original 1975 film entitled “Death Race 2050.” The film takes place in the not-too-distant future where America is controlled by a corporate government that peddles violent virtual-reality entertainment to the masses. Each year they organize a Death Race, where drivers compete in a cross-country road race, scoring points for running down pedestrians and killing each other. It »

Sistine Stallone Strips Down for Love After Miss Golden Globe Debut

Sistine Stallone has had two major moments in black this week: one in a sheer, long-sleeve gown as Miss Golden Globes on Sunday – and now one in quite a bit less as the latest edition to the Love advent calendar.

The 18-year-old daughter of Rocky star Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin is the latest of Love magazine’s lingerie-clad advent calendar girls (albeit a post-holiday addition), posing and strutting in black, lacy unmentionables for a new video.

Golden Globes: 11 Secrets From Inside the Ballroom

9 January 2017 12:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On TV, the 74th annual Golden Globes played like a never-ending valentine to “La La Land,” which landed seven awards — more than any other film in history. But inside the Beverly Hills ballroom, the three-hour dinner was more like a party on a cruise ship, with drinking, smoking, and lots of selfies. Here are 11 secrets from inside the Golden Globes.

1. How Jimmy Fallon lost the room

The momentum was on the “Tonight Show” host’s side — for all of five minutes. The pre-recorded introduction, which had Fallon belting his own version of a “La La Land” song, kicked off the evening on a high note. But the problem was, Fallon lost the room as soon as he went live and not just because his teleprompter failed. Presiding over the first major Hollywood gathering since Donald Trump’s election as president, Fallon’s political jokes were too soft. The laughter during »

Martin Scorsese at ‘Silence’ Premiere: ‘Prepare to Go Into Another World’

6 January 2017 9:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Martin Scorsese got right to the point on Thursday at Paramount’s Los Angeles premiere of “Silence” at the Directors Guild of America Theater — even though it had taken 28 years to get there.

The director thanked more than a dozen producers, another 15 production crew members, and about the same number of cast members, then proclaimed, “Prepare to go into another world … for a little while.”

Producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff said the movie — set in 17th Century Japan and based on the Shusaku Endo novel about Jesuit missionaries — has been on her radar since 2002.

“This was always going to be the next movie,” she mused. “We almost got into it in 2009 and after ‘Wolf of Wall Street,’ [Scorsese] said, ‘It’s either ‘Silence’ or nothing.’ So we shot 73 days and in five languages and I lost 25 pounds on the shoot. I was so overwhelmed and every day I’d say ‘I can »

Et caught up with Sylvester Stallone's three daughters on Wednesday, where they were still reeling over their Miss Golden Globe selection.

Sophia, 20, Sistine, 18, and Scarlet, 14, were named Miss Golden Globe 2017 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, marking the first time the distinction was given to three people since the tradition was started in 1963.

Read: The Golden Globe Nominations Are In!

"I'm just hoping I don't trip when I'm walking on the stage," Sophia told Et's Carly Steel.

"[Our heels] are comfortable enough to where we don't have to fall, but knowing us, we'll probably fall," Scarlet joked.

Miss Golden Globe duties include ushering presenters and winners on and off stage. Honorees are typically a child of a prominent Hollywood actor or actress, and past Miss Golden Globes include Melanie Griffith (1975), Laura Dern (1982) and Dakota Johnson (2006). Griffith and Dern eventually won their own Golden Globes.

Sylvester Stallone lines up new film to direct

4 January 2017 10:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Jan 5, 2017

Sylvester Stallone will direct and co-star in biopic Tough As They Come, starring Adam Driver as an Army veteran quadruple amputee.

It appears that the directorial talent of action star icon Sylvester Stallone is about to be exercised again. While his resume has generally remained in the wheelhouse of his Rocky, Rambo and The Expendables franchises, Stallone will soon tackle a touching real life story of an Army veteran who emerged from the war in Afghanistan as a quadruple amputee, and he’ll be working with an intriguing star.

Deadline reports that Fox has tapped Sylvester Stallone to direct a drama adapting the 2015 best-selling biography of United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills, appropriately titled Tough As They Come. The film will star Adam Driver as Mills, whose harrowing ordeal with an Ied in his third tour in Afghanistan rendered him a quadruple amputee. Possessing innate willpower and a strong support system, »

Sylvester Stallone is climbing back into the director’s chair to tell the true story of an American hero — quadruple amputee Travis Mills — in “Tough as They Come.” The “Rocky” legend will direct and co-star with “Star Wars” player Adam Driver, two individuals familiar with the project said.
