Lucifer Video: Cast Sheds Light on the Season 3 Sizzle Reel's Omg Moments

19 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Having delivered unto the world the hugely entertaining sizzle reel for Lucifer Season 3, TVLine of course had many questions when the cast paid a visit to our Comic-Con interview suite.

RelatedLucifer Season 3 Trailer: Risky Business, a Stolen Kiss, Cage Fighting and More

In the cast’s defense — and as some readers surmised — much of the trailer was from the four episodes that got lopped off of Season 2 and tacked onto the coming run, so memories were a bit foggy when Michael Ausiello pressed for the what and why of what’s going on in the assorted vignettes.

Gotham Teaser Reveals Scarecrow, Plus Teen Wolf Alum Joins Season 4 Cast

23 July 2017 7:24 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A Gotham sizzle reel that debuted at the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday night was 80-percent recap, but that other 20 percent included some fearsome stuff.

Press play above and then jump to the 4:15 mark to check out fresh Season 4 footage, including Selina unleashing some whoop-ass, the unveiling of the cool centerpiece at Penguin’s new Iceberg Lounge, a glimpse of [Spoiler]’s stone-cold, death-defying new look, and last but not least, the introduction of a a fully-costumed Scarecrow. (The fear-mongering villain of course was first hinted during a Season 1 episode about a teenage Jonathan Crane’s misguided father; it’s unclear which “Crane? »

Bob's Burgers Stars Reenact Infamous Lady Gaga Run-In — Nsfw Video

22 July 2017 7:43 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Bob’s Burgers is cooking up a tasty menu of guest stars for Season 8… but we know one pop star who might not be lending her voice anytime soon.

The cast of Fox’s Emmy-winning cartoon dropped by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite to give Michael Ausiello the scoop on Season 8. But first, they needed to hash out exactly what happened when Ausiello and cast member John Roberts (Linda) went to see Lady Gaga in concert. In the slightly Nsfw video above, Roberts acts out his disappointing backstage encounter with Gaga — or “Lady Caca,” as he’s now calling her. »

Gotham Cast Video: A 'Heap of Hell' Is Coming — Plus, Non-Scoop Revealed!

22 July 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When the cast of Fox’s Gotham swung by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite on Saturday, Editor-in-Chief Michael Ausiello made sure to grill Ben McKenzie about the big “scoop” he served up a year ago, in the same room… and that never came to fruition.

Back then, McKenzie had revealed that Gordon would evolve into an entirely different DC Comics character, at the middle of Season 3. And that was a plan at one time. So who was he to become? Press play above to find out.

Smallville's Tom Welling Joins Lucifer, His First TV Role Since Clark Kent

22 July 2017 2:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You can file this casting news under “Super.”

Smallville alum Tom Welling is finally returning to TV with a series regular role on Fox’s Lucifer, TVLine has learned, and it sounds as if his character will get the Devil himself rather fired up.

RelatedMatt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Lucifer Season 3 and More!

When the supernatural-tinged procedural returns for Season 3, Welling will play Marcus Pierce, an accomplished police lieutenant who is strategic, reserved and well-respected — that is, everything Lucifer is not. But perhaps even more annoying are all the things the gents have in common, both being charming, charismatic and “handsome as hell. »

Okay, so you probably don't know Curtis Armstrong by name (unless, like him, you are a super nerd), but you probably know him by sight, or at least by his famous roles, Booger in the Revenge of the Nerds movies, Herbert Viola on Moonlighting and Miles Dalby in Risky Business.

21 June 2017 3:42 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s the movie that made Tom Cruise an overnight superstar. And now, a new book claims the actor made quite an impression on his costar Rebecca De Mornay while making Risky Business in 1983. 

In a newly published excerpt in The Hollywood Reporter from an upcoming memoir by Revenge of the Nerds star Curtis Armstrong, the actor chronicles his time spent on the set of the hit ’80s film Risky Business with Cruise — and spills some steamy off-screen secrets.

After years of waiting, fans are finally able to hear Bob Seger‘s music on digital streaming platforms.

Video: 6 Unexpected, Yet Awesome Dance Scenes

11 June 2017 2:35 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Dancing in movies is nothing new, since the early days of cinema dancing has been a great way to perform a scene. However, most of these routines, as you’d expect, are in musicals. Yet there are a few non-musical films that throw in the odd surprising dance scene to great effect. Here are 6 unexpected yet awesome dance scenes.

6. Club Cringe – The Inbetweeners Movie (2011)

For some dancing isn’t easy, but in this case these guys make it look almost impossible. With the juxtaposition of Neil (Blake Harrison) flailing his limbs with some sort of rhythm next to Simon (Joe Thomas) jittering nervously and Will (Simon Bird) galloping his way to sheer embarrassment, this one hits the list for cringe factor alone. The final stage in this act results in Simon and Will choosing to copy Neil and if you ever think that Neil is the one to follow, you’re in the shit. »

Exclusive: 'The Mummy' Director Alex Kurtzman on Building a Dark Universe and Dream Casting Jennifer Lawrence

9 June 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Alex Kurtzman knows his way around a franchise. The writer-director-producer had a hand in creating million-dollar tentpoles out of Transformers and Star Trek, in addition to scripting the second installment in The Amazing Spider-Man series. With his latest, a reboot of The Mummy starring Tom Cruise, he hopes to not only resurrect the iconic bandaged baddie, but spawn an entire cinematic universe of Universal Monster movies, to be known as the Dark Universe.

"It's like childbirth," Kurtzman told Et of the anticipation he feels over fans finally being able to see his take on The Mummy (in theaters now). "The head is crowning, so you're just waiting for the whole world to see your child. It's exciting! It's been a long journey."

Tom Cruise and ‘The Mummy’: Why This May Be the Weirdest Movie Choice of His Career

8 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In August 1983, Ronald Reagan was president, “Every Breath You Take” by The Police was in the middle of an eight-week run as the #1 single, Ivanka Trump wasn’t quite two years old, and few people were aware of the Church of Scientology. And “Risky Business,” the first movie to star Tom Cruise, became a surprise hit.

34 years later, Cruise is at a different kind of crossroads at the box office. He’s been charged with rebooting Universal’s Mummy franchise, which will launch the studio’s “Dark Universe” story world. And while “The Mummy” has already opened strongly in its first date (South Korea), projections here are considerably less kind. Reviews have ranged from disappointing to incendiary, and “Wonder Woman” is expected to soundly beat the film in its opening weekend.

Review: ‘The Mummy’ Is The Worst Tom Cruise Movie Ever

7 June 2017 8:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What made Tom Cruise a movie star? It wasn’t his toothy smile or his all-American dimples. It wasn’t that he was cocky enough to be loved, but also vulnerable enough to be lovable, although that certainly helped. It wasn’t even the fact that the way he runs on screen tells us more about the fundamental nature of cinema than anyone has conveyed with a stride since Eadweard Muybridge trained his camera on a galloping horse. No, Tom Cruise became a movie star because he possessed something that galvanized all of those individual qualities into something special — a need for quality control.

Just consider those credits: “Risky Business.” “Top Gun.” “Born on the Fourth of July.” Cruise was a human seal of freshness decades before today’s Hollywood A-listers needed Rotten Tomatoes to validate their work. If “Cocktail” was the worst movie an actor made in the first decade of their career, »

The Most Shameless Product Placements in Our Favorite Movies

17 May 2017 8:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Let’s face it: product placement is everywhere. Subtle to not-so-subtle advertisements wheedle their way into TV shows and movies so often that these days we barely blink at them. Then again, sometimes it’s just too glaring to ignore.

We may be streaming lifetime movies on Netflix or watching the newest blockbuster on the big screen when we encounter these product placement crimes. Even some of our most beloved films commit them. The following list details some of the most shameful product placements in our favorite movies:

1. Captain America Civil War– Audi (2016)

Image credit: Carscoops.com

When Marvel released an Audi ad spliced with scenes of the Captain and Black Panther chasing Bucky through congested traffic to its Youtube page, many fans felt frustrated by the obvious sell-out. The association between Audi and the film didn’t end there for fans; watching the real chase sequence without seeing Audis »

Ricky Martin Recreates Tom Cruise’s Famous Risky Business Dance on Lip Sync Battle

19 April 2017 11:24 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This is one way to live la vida loca: Ricky Martin channels Risky Business on the latest Lip Sync Battle, where the singer slides onto the stage to perform Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” wearing nothing but socks, briefs, and a button-down — almost exactly what Tom Cruise wore when he danced to the same song in the 1983 comedy.

Martin is battling it out with Kate Upton, who donned a schoolgirl outfit for Britney Spears “…Baby One More Time” in a previously released clip from the episode.

See Martin in action above, and watch the full episode when it airs Thursday at 10 p. »
