The freshly rebooted saga will inevitably be a box office smash for Disney, the studio now behind the franchise, but for it to continue as a multi-billion-dollar juggernaut, it will need to speak to a generation of 20-year-olds raised on “The Hunger Games,” “Avatar” and “Harry Potter,” franchises that may feel more digitally savvy than Han Solo, Princess Leia and the growing generations of Skywalkers.
The first of Abrams’ planned films, due out in December 2015, aims to set up an endless array of sequels, prequels and spinoffs. But, if Disney wants the saga of a galaxy far, far away to expand, it can’t just be embraced by the Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers who were weaned on the original trilogy in the ’70s and ’80s, »

Source: FX Ma Petite didn't fare so well on the latest episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, but thankfully, Jyoti Amge, the actress who plays her, is doing just fine. She's 20 years old in real life, but because of a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia, she's only 23 inches tall. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Amge disclosed her frustrations about being so small: "When people see me on TV, they become very happy because they don't have to interact with me," Jyoti said through a Hindi translator. "When they start interacting with me they ask me questions like I'm a baby or treat me like I'm a baby and hold me like I'm a baby, and that's what they do wrong, really." It's nice to hear directly from Amge, and now I guess we all know how not to act around her if you happen to run into her. »
If you were one of the people who found the first Potty Mouth Princesses video disturbing — because young girls were dropping F-bombs to support feminism — prepare yourself for their new video.
In the sequel, the Potty Mouth Princess Posse focus on violence against women, asking, “What’s more offensive, a little girl saying f--k? Or the f--ked up and sexist way society barely lifts a finger when men raise their fists?”
Watch: Emma Watson says men should care about women’s issues
(Warning: This video contains explicit language and features girls wearing realistic-looking makeup that make them appear bruised, battered and otherwise abused.)
The campaign is for FCKH8.com, which is donating 100% of the profits from sales of their “not a wife beater” tank to domestic violence charities. FCKH8 says their last video raised over $30,000 for women’s charities.
Now, Gilman, 26, is speaking with Et's Nancy O'Dell to discuss his decision to open up and be honest with his fans.
"It's crazy to know that I'm in an industry that's ashamed of me for being me," he said. "I hope that someday down the line, that won’t be anymore because I'm sure there are thousands of great artists that aren't getting the opportunity they deserve."
In Gilman's emotional YouTube video, he referenced Herndon's announcement ("a fellow country artist and friend made it easier for me to make this video") but also said that he had been weighing the decision to come out publicly for a few weeks after being photographed with his partner of five months. Of the decision to address his fans directly, Gilman said: "I »

Microsoft has completely shut down Xbox Entertainment Studios, but at least one of the bygone studio's projects has still managed to see the light of day. Atari: Game Over, which chronicles the disastrous impact of the 1982 E.T. video game often regarded as the worst of all time, is now available on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Atari: Game Over's subject is one of the most famous urban legends in video game history. The E.T. game was so poorly received that, in 1983, Atari decided to bury hundreds of unsold copies at a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico. This story remained the stuff of legend until 2013, when an excavation effort run by Fuel Industries turned up the long-discarded cartridges. Atari: Game Over, directed by Zak Penn, shares this story with viewers and includes interviews with Howard Scott Warshaw (the designer of the E.T. game) and Atari founder Nolan Bushnell.

Five years ago, country singer Ty Herndon finally recognized that he had a very important story to share. "During an Anthony Robbins seminar, I realized I had an incredible story that could possibly help someone's son or daughter or grandchild's life not be as difficult as mine has been," he tells People. "Maybe they wouldn't have to go through as much pain and suffering. It's time to tell my truth." That "truth" is about a part of himself he has kept secret for his entire career: "I'm an out, proud and happy gay man," the Nashville artist revealed to People »

Ty Herndon is, as Kacey Musgraves would say, following his arrow. On Thursday, Nov. 20, nearly two decades after he first came to fame with the No. 1 hit single "What Mattered Most," the 52-year-old country singer publicly came out as gay in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Asked by Et correspondent Nischelle Turner to reveal the biggest lie he'd ever told himself — a reference to his 2013 album Lies I Told Myself — Herndon replied, "That I couldn't be gay and be in country music.

Bey's got her back! Tina Knowles gushed about daughter Solange Knowles' New Orleans wedding during Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, Nov. 19, explaining that it was big sister Beyonce that helped the bride recover after getting hives during her big day. "[Solange] went through the wedding and the sit-down dinner and she was just fine, and then they had a second line in the streets of New Orleans and she was dancing so hard, I think she just got overheated," Tina, 60, recalled to Et's Nancy O'Dell and [...] »
• World-beating website has been approached by Us TV producers
• Jailing of Oscar Pistorius helps Mail Online to new daily traffic record
Not content with the supreme domination of our mobile and desktop screens with its “sidebar of shame”, Mail Online could soon get a whole new medium, publisher Martin Clarke tells the Wall Street Journal.
Clarke said the Mail’s digital incarnation had been approached by several producers about developing a show for Us TV based on its wildly successful web formula – “hoovering up the internet and vomiting it back out”, as one staffer tells the WSJ – in the mould of Entertainment Tonight or Access Hollywood.

Now mom Tina Knowles sits down with Entertainment Tonight's Nancy O'Dell and Kevin Frazier to spill wedding day secrets, including her favorite moment of the New Orleans nuptials and how big sis Beyonce saved the day.
"There wasn't a dry eye on the place," she says of the couple's personalized vows, which were her favorite part of the three-day event. "They were just so heartfelt and I just think the wedding epitomized Solange as a person, and her and Alan's artistic flare."
Tina reveals that despite the congregation's coordinated all-white ensembles, Solange actually opted out of having a traditional bridal party. The highly-publicized group photo in Vogue just captures the star's closest female family and friends.

Somehow, the sloppily assembled, unfunny "Let's Be Cops" earned over $120 million worldwide (Wtf), and since money talks in Hollywood, that means director Luke Greenfield gets to level up. And so he shall, setting up the movie "Slingshot," which is said to be in the spirit of "E.T." and "Back To The Future." No other plot details are available just yet, but let's just hope a little more craft is put into that effort. [Deadline] Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House," "Snabba Cash") has been tapped to direct "Boston Strong." The project was once set to star Casey Affleck, who has since dropped out of the movie that "follows the massive manhunt to apprehend the two men believed to be responsible for the bombings, as well as examining the city’s reaction following the events." “The Fighter” writers Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy penned the script, but no word yet on when production might begin. »

Less than 24 hours after Netflix postponed a planned Bill Cosby special, NBC nixed a comedy project that could have brought the 77-year-old comedian back to primetime. An insider confirmed to People that the project is no longer in development for summer or fall 2015. The idea came from Mike O'Malley (Glee) and Mike Sikowitz and was only in the early stages; the duo hadn't even delivered a script. The hope was for Cosby to play a patriarch of a multi-generational family in a classic family sitcom, and there was even talk of O'Malley playing one of the sons-in-law. But that was »

As new accusations of rape and sexual impropriety are levied against Bill Cosby, the comedy legend's broadcast partners are, predictably, pulling back. One day after Netflix announced that it was postponing the premiere date for the comedy special "Bill Cosby 77" (and one day after former supermodel Janice Dickinson told Entertainment Tonight that Cosby raped her in 1982), NBC confirms that it will not be moving forward with plans to bring Cosby back to TV with a new pilot. Back in July at the Television Critics Association press tour, NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke described the Cosby show as "an important show for us." At the time, the project was described as a multi-cam set at Sony with Mike Sikowitz and Mike O'Malley writing. "It’s a multigenerational family show, so it’s very ensemble," Salke said. "Bill Cosby plays the patriarch of the family dispelling his classic wisdom on relationships, parenthood, »

New York (AP) - NBC has scrapped a Bill Cosby comedy that was under development and TV Land will stop airing reruns of "The Cosby Show," moves that came a day after another woman came forward claiming that the once-beloved comic had sexually assaulted her. NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks said Wednesday the Cosby sitcom "is no longer under development." A TV Land spokesperson said the shows will stop airing immediately. "The Cosby Show" also was to have been part of a Thanksgiving marathon of sitcoms, and the show will be off the network indefinitely.
Both the NBC sitcom and Netflix Cosby standup comedy special, which has been indefinitely postponed, were halted within a day after actress Janice Dickinson, in an interview with "Entertainment Tonight," became the third woman in recent weeks to allege she'd been assaulted by Cosby - charges strongly denied by the comedian's lawyer. »

Sources confirm for TVLine that NBC has halted development of a new comedy to be headlined by Bill Cosby, in the wake of ongoing and new allegations of sexual assault levied against the veteran entertainer.
Former supermodel Janice Dickinson is the latest woman to come forward with allegations of sexual assault, her own encounter dating back 32 years. (Dickinson told Entertainment Tonight that an attempt to chronicle the assault in her 2002 memoir was stifled by Cosby’s lawyers.)
At least four other women have made similar accusations against Cosby, with one filing a lawsuit that was settled out of court in »
