Ryan Seacrest has admitted that a blizzard hitting the North-Eastern Us is causing logistical problems for his Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2011 telecast. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the TV presenter revealed that it's proving difficult to get all of the show's performers into New York City. "The weather has only put a glitch thus far in the arrivals," he said. "I don't have all the boybands here yet, so we don't know if all the [New Kids On the Block] are here or all the [Backstreet Boys] are here, so they're trickling in." The star added: "They're (more) »

Nancy O'Dell is about to head to fabulous Las Vegas, where she'll host Fox's "New Year's Eve Live" tomorrow night (12/31) -- and says it'll be an adults-only affair. "I'm bringing my husband with me, and my father," says the soon-to-be "Entertainment Tonight" correspondent, whose dad came to stay with her and her husband, stepsons and daughter for Christmas."The kids will stay back in L.A., I think. My baby girl is 3 1/2, but knowing her, she'll stay wide awake. She can count to 40 or so, and she's been practicing counting backwards, so maybe I'll have her count down to 'Happy New Year.'"Even if little Ashby's New Year's countdown doesn't make it to TV, O'Dell says she'll cherish the video. "I have a million and one videos of her. I'm a mamarazzi," she tells us.For O'Dell, who'll preside over the Fox New Year's Eve show featuring Travie McCoy and David Archuleta, »
A few weeks ago it was announced that former "Access Hollywood" anchor Nancy O'Dell would be replacing Mary Hart on "Entertainment Tonight." O'Dell quit her job at "Access" last December, but in an interview with The New York Post, she says it wasn't planned: "I'm sure 'Access' wouldn't have let me out of my contract if they had known."
Prior to O'Dell's hiring, it was believed that "The Insider's" host Lara Spencer would get the job and there were reports that "Et" executive producer Linda Bell Blue was telling her to move to L.A. with the promise of landing the job. An industry insider reveals it was CBS boss Les Moonves' decision to go with O'Dell, who he believed had the best celebrity contacts.
"I had feelers out there and had taken meetings," O'Dell admits, but says she wasn't promised the "Et" job. There's been speculation over what »
‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ (June 30) – Twi-hards continued to line up in droves, beginning with midnight screenings, to drink in the third chapter of the Stephenie Meyer vamps vs. werewolves saga this summer. The world got plenty of shirtless shots of Taylor Lautner, not to mention the big-screen ‘Twilight’ parody ‘Vampires Suck.’
Are you really at all surprised that Eclipse was a pop culture movie moment from 2010? »
O'Dell is trading in her seat as host and commentator of the annual New Year's Day Rose Bowl Parade for Fox's "New Year's Eve Live," where she'll host a night of musical performances by David Archuleta, Travie McCoy, Plain White T's, and the broadcast premiere of Mariah Carey's video for "Auld Lang Syne (The New Year's Anthem)."
As Rose Bowl Parade host for the past 10 years, O'Dell had to be up way early in the Am. So unlike most people, she'd be in bed by 7 or 8pm and hasn't seen the ball drop live in over a decade.
"I've Tivo'd some of the countdowns but it's never the same," O'Dell told Cns. "You watch it the next day and you're like, »

A man and a woman fall in love but are separated by two different dimensions. No, it's not only plot to The Lake House, it's also the plot to Upside Down, the topsy turvy sci-fi romance written and directed by Juan Diego Solanas, which stars Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst.

But now, thanks to a French website, we have a look at both some poster concept art as well as the star-crossed lovers on camera. Check them out and read more about this movie - which sounds about one million times cooler than The Lake House - after the break.

Katy Perry will forever be the answer to the trivia question "What was the first Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper of 2011?" Her "Firework," the third single from her excellent (and Grammy-nominated) album Teenage Dream, is the top song in the country for the third week in a row. That means that the singles from Teenage Dream — each of which has ascended to the top spot — have spent a total of 11 weeks in the pole position on the Hot 100, which is a stunning accomplishment. The rumor is that "E.T." will be Perry's next single, so it will be interesting to see if she can keep up her streak of Billboard Hot 100 dominance.
While there hasn't been any room at the top for anybody else, there are still a handful of artists making big moves. Fresh off a stint in Rikers, Lil Wayne's first single since breathing free air again posted a big debut »

The producers of "American Idol" are getting into the holiday spirit. A week shy of Christmas Day, a brand new sneak peek for season 10 of the singing competition show are released via Entertainment Tonight, and for the first time, footage of the bad auditions become the focus of a promo video.
This holiday promo strings together the "Ho-Ho-Ho" 's of various contestants into a holiday tune. Footage of how each of the three judges react to the auditions are also shared, offering a look at Jennifer Lopez jolting on her seat, Steven Tyler winching in frustration and Randy Jackson shaking his head.
Steven has, earlier, revealed he struggles to be honest with terrible "Idol" hopefuls. "It's hard when you have a kid who's 15 years old, who's been watching 'American Idol' for the last 10 years," he said. Some of them were awful. I just say something like, 'Did you »
FX’s Justified was easily one of the best, most critically acclaimed TV series of the last year. Based on Elmore Leonard’s written works Pronto, Riding the Rap, and Fire in the Hole, the show follows Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), a modern-day U.S. Marshall who carries himself like the Man with No Name, and is tense, barebones, clever, and wonderfully reminiscent of Jackie Brown, Get Shorty, and Out of Sight.
It’s no surprise that Justified was renewed for a second season, as, again, it was universally acclaimed and had fairly high cable ratings. Now, FX has officially announced that the season two release date will be February 9th, 2011 at 10 p.m. E.T. Just in time for my birthday? Thanks, FX. You guys are really swell.

It’s an international one, so the “Valentine’s Day” release as promised is a bit off (more like March 18 in the U.S.), but the British wit and Seth Rogen-voiced alien are fleshed out a bit more in this two and a half minutes than its brief teaser trailer a few months ago. The trailer plays like a geek road trip that turns the Area 51 mythology and E.T. fascination on its bulbous head for some broad, outrageous comedy. With its few obvious anal probe jokes aside, this looks like another fun flick from Pegg/Frost and the underrated Mottola.
Here is the teaser poster (via Collider):

Despite a distinct lack of awards-season love thus far, we're sticking to our guns and proclaiming Matt Damon's turn as ornery Texas Ranger Laboeuf (pronounced Labeef, but bearing no relation to Shia) in the Coen Bros.' badass Western "True Grit" (in theaters December 22) one of the year's finest and most entertaining performances.
With a role like that in his holster, it's no wonder that the erstwhile Jason Bourne is in as much demand as ever these days. He's already wrapped the thriller "The Adjustment Bureau" and the animated sequel "Happy Feet 2," and has a gaggle of projects -- including Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion" and Cameron Crowe's "We Bought a Zoon" -- already in the hopper. But the most recent film Damon has been linked to is perhaps the most exciting: "Elysium," a top-secret sci-fi flick that reunites "District 9" director Neill Blomkamp with star Sharlto Copley.

Director David Fincher will present his cast from The Social Network with the Ensemble Performance Award at the Palm Spring International Film Festival in January. Festival chairman Harold Matzner said, “Every so often, a movie comes along with performances that set the standard for a generation of actors. The Social Network combines a theme that defines our time with performances that redefine acting for the screen. The Social Network is important not because it is about this current moment in history, but because the human motivations of the characters make it a parable for this or any age.”

There are not many films I am anticipating more than Battle: Los Angeles, the upcoming Jonathan Liebesman directed alien invasion flick that opens in March. My excitement grew ten fold with release of that terrific trailer a few weeks back (see it here).
A new poster has debuted at Coming Soon and continues the good work Columbia are doing of teasing the picture bit by bit, and not blowing their load by showing us all their money shots in one go. Take a peek and tell us what you think…
Nice, simple, foreboding. I like the melancholy tone they’re taking with the marketing, (the use of Johan Johansson’s ‘The Suns Gone Dim’ track was a masterstroke) and I hope its an accurate reflection of the actual film. »

There aren’t many true movie stars still with us from Hollywood’s golden age, or even from the 1950s and 60s, when the studio era was on the wane. But one star who occupied a unique place in America’s heart, as a top box-office attraction and a top-selling recording artist at the same time, is still alive and well: Doris Day. She avoids the limelight and hasn’t appeared on camera in many years. (I felt very lucky to spend some time with her for Entertainment Tonight in 1993, during a weekend-long fundraiser she held for her Animal League.) In recent years,… »

Director: Jodie Foster
Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.
Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.
The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »
