Bolton kicks practice off by stripping down immediately.
“Bonner just wants to take his shirt off and do some rodeo. Fine by us, that’s going in there,” Emma Slater, Jennings’ partner, says.

Examining some of the key turning points in the Star Trek series, with the projects that never quite made it to the screen...

Star Trek has been with us for over 50 years in one form or another. It started in 1964 with the filming of the pilot episode of the original series, and it has continued to the present day, through films and subsequent TV series, along with other mediums such as books and video games.
We’re principally interested in the core of the franchise here, the TV series and films, and we’re going to take a look at some 'what if...' possibilities of projects that almost happened but didn’t. If you’re reading »

Legends Of Tomorrow delivered another excellent episode, and continues to make a case for being the best superhero show around...
This review contains spoilers.

I wasn’t really sure what I was going to write about this episode until the end. For about fifty-five minutes, this was another very good episode of Legends Of Tomorrow, but after gushing about the show for the past couple of weeks, I didn’t know how much more I had to say about it.
Then Commander Steel sacrificed himself with Nate right there, and I ended up tearing up at a goofy TV show where Victor Garber was humiliating himself on TV not twenty minutes ago. I continue to be impressed at how good this show is. It doesn’t have the flash or style of Legion, »
It’s been over four years since New Kids on the Block have released a new song. But their new single “One More Night” isn’t half bad. In fact it’s pretty darned catchy if you ask me. While it’ll never be a “Hanging Tough” or “The Right Stuff” they know as well as today’s youth knows that songs like that just don’t have any juice anymore, at least not to today’s crowd. NKotB draws plenty of thousands of old schoolers to their concerts every year but to get the attention of these tweens they need new material. I have to admit

Tim here. Somewhat overlooked in all the furor over the rightfully furor-inducing parts of the Oscars on Sunday, a little bit of history was quietly made.
When the four-member team from Hacksaw Ridge took to the stage of the Kodak Theater to accept the award for Best Sound Mixing, the worst losing drought in the history of the Academy Awards ended. Kevin O'Connell received his first nomination in that category in 1983, for the subdued domestic drama Terms of Endearment, which perhaps unsurprisingly lost to The Right Stuff. 33 years and 21 nominations later, in a career including 209 films to his credit as a mixer, he finally picked up his very first statue on Sunday. You may remember him as the guy who thanked his late mom for helping him to get his first job in the industry, and who asked as thanks only that he'd mention her one day as he accepted an Oscar. »

Since its release late last year, Hidden Figures has captured audiences and critics with its award-winning performances and ultra-inspiring plot.
The film, which is up for a Best Picture Oscar, tells the story of three African-American mathematicians working at Nasa — Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan — whose research helps John Glenn become the first American astronaut to orbit Earth.
In honor of Hidden Figures‘ many accolades this awards season, we rounded up a bevy of fun facts and set secrets to hold you over until the Academy Awards this Sunday night.

Terms of Endearment is getting the remake treatment, and there's some casting news that just changed the game. The Wrap is reporting that Lee Daniels is directing, and Oprah Winfrey is starring as Aurora Greenway. If you were alive in 1983 when the original came out, you may remember that Shirley MacLaine won an Oscar for playing the role, while Debra Winger scored a nomination for her part as Aurora's daughter, Emma. The movie also beat out The Big Chill and The Right Stuff for the best picture trophy. Winfrey is currently also signed on to play Mrs. Which in Ava DuVernay's adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time. We'll keep you posted as more casting news comes in! »

Some things you just never grow out of!
"I'm from afar, Ok, so I'm not getting too close, but when they're like -- little thrusts on stage, I'm like, 'Why am I 15 right now?!'" she hilariously admitted. "I'm just swooning up there."
"I was a Joey girl, but you know, since they've all been on Fuller House, I kind of have a crush on all of them," she joked.

Theodore Melfi’s “Hidden Figures,” the untold historical drama about African-American math genius Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson) and her two Nasa colleagues (Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe), is starting to garner crafts recognition, with production designer Wynn Thomas nabbing a period Art Directors Guild nomination this week.
“Fortunately, there was a lot of research to draw upon for what the offices looked like at the Langley Nasa facility,” Thomas told IndieWire. But he was able to bring more imagination to the Space Task Group, which was reconfigured for the movie, which was shot in Atlanta.
Instead of a dull, rectangular-shaped office, the African-American designer made it a place of wonder. “And I wanted Katherine Johnson and the audience to feel they were entering a very special place where something fantastic was going on,” he said. “So we ended up using the Morehouse College buildings for the exterior of Nasa »

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 »

For “Hidden Figures,” the largely unknown story of African-American women working at Nasa during the early 1960s, it was already a given that multi-Grammy-winning Pharrell Williams – a producer on the film – would contribute songs.
Williams then called Hans Zimmer, with whom he had worked on several films dating back to “Despicable Me.” “I knew that he would have the right playbook,” Williams says. Zimmer in turn recruited English composer Benjamin Wallfisch, who had contributed additional music to Zimmer’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
“An Englishman, a German and an American walk into a bar,” quips Zimmer. “What do they do? They start talking about music.” Williams’ songs came first, says Zimmer. “The score draws from the songs all the time.”
Prior to the film, Williams happened to be working on songs that, for no particular reason, seemed to have a 1960s vibe. “When we got the call about this project, »
