CBS has finally released full trailers for most of the network's new fall shows. While previously released videos relied heavily on cast interviews and making-of footage, these new trailers show only footage. These were, in fact, the videos shown to advertisers and reporters during the CBS upfront presentations.
First up, we have the comedies.
It may be the presence of Kelly Clarkson that inspires it, but everyone sings. Like everyone. Yay!
There is much more of Martindale and Bridges in this version. This is a good move on CBS' part. A less-good move would be the ever-prevalent laugh track. It's hardly necessary. Then there's the best move -- Arnett and Martindale reenacting "Dirty Dancing."
Let’s be honest, when it comes to grand romantic gestures, the best most of us can hope for is a six pack and a chick flick. Maybe a quick stop at one of those yogo-bogo health-fad fro-yo stations that are perfect when you don’t want your date to think you’re taking this dating thing too seriously. Course, for most of us single folks, any night not spent watching Twilight with our cats is a good night (I may or may not have done this).
But for our fabulous and famous movie counterparts, dating is never awkward, rejection comes with hot sex and a new love interest, and everyone lives happily ever after (well, mostly). While we, the viewer, shovel ice cream into our faces and try not to cry over our sad pathetic love lives and the fact that we can only afford Pbr.

Hey, it certainly sounds better than Twixt. THR reports that Francis Ford Coppola is readying a new feature that should appeal to more of his traditional fanbase. The film is currently untitled, but the outlet reports that it “will chronicle an Italian-American family and span from the 1930s to the 1960s.” The project is also described as “a coming-of-age story that focuses on a boy and girl in their late teens.” While details are obviously slim as of now, The Wrap’s Jeff Snider also tweeted today that “Dance will be a key element in the new Francis Ford Coppola movie. That’s all, folks.” So that’s…something. Oh, is this going to be a new Dirty Dancing? Is that it? Coppola is currently writing the screenplay himself, and while the project has no firm studio commitments (despite having offices on the Paramount lot), a pair of casting directors have already been brought on (Courtney Bright and »

Easter Film Hop & Midsummer Night Screen, London
No, there's nothing wrong with your calendar. This was supposed to happen at Easter, but being outdoors and in Britain, it was inevitably rained, hailed and snowed well and truly off. So here it is again: three days of dance-related screenings in a converted Shoreditch car park, with the emphasis on standing up and shakin' rather than sitting down and nodding. On Friday it's a "concert-style" screening of Prince's mighty Purple Rain, including I Would Die 4 U, When Doves Cry and Let's Go Crazy, followed by a sing-along Grease, and a dance-along version of Dirty Dancing next weekend. There will be dance trainers on hand, street food and cocktails, and "fancy dress is encouraged but not enforced".
Leonard Street Car Park, EC2, Fri to 26 May

To celebrate the release of The Big Wedding (in cinemas May 29th) HeyUGuys are giving three lucky readers the chance to win a bumper DVD prize pack which includes Magic Mike, Friend’s With Kids, What To Expect When You’re Expecting, Dirty Dancing and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.

It was recently announced that the musical would close after poor ticket sales and derogatory reviews, the BBC reported.
The band members said that they were "gutted" when the song's producer Judy Cramer said they could not "make it work."
"It is with a heavy heart that we've had to make this very difficult decision to post closing notices," said Craymer in the announcement on 2 May.
"Viva Forever! may be taking its leave for now in the West End, but the legacy of Spice. »

Netflix was quick to respond today to the exodus of streamed content resulting from expired licensing deals with MGM, Warner Bros., and Universal that cost the online service access to several James Bond movies, Adaptation, Cruel Intentions, and Reality Bites, among hundreds of others. Yesterday, Netflix sought to calm subscribers mourning the loss of Adam Sandler’s Big Daddy, explaining that “this ebb and flow happens all the time” and promising users 500 new titles today, including Mission: Impossible 2. Today, they were quick to trumpet some of the new offerings.

Film locations are rarely given much screen time. They are seen in a moment, establishing where the action takes place. They are no more than a beautiful backdrop, and the actual location may not be remembered. Yet there are some locations that become characters themselves on film.
Countless films have been shot on location in the Appalachian Mountains, on lush lakes, rivers, and, of course, the mountains. In a number of these films, the Mountains are integral to the story, whether their history, sheer expanse, or dramatic beauty.

Despite the fact that Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) escapes while being transported to prison in Illinois, the famous train wreck scene was filmed on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. The remnants of the wreck still lie on Railroad property, crumpled and twisted. The film site can be visited today, either directly or by taking the Tuckasegee River Excursion, a »

A new scheme encourages patients to watch their favourite film while under local anaesthetic. Here are some to steer clear of
A pioneering scheme has been launched at Peterborough City Hospital that encourages older patients undergoing certain orthopedic operations to watch their favourite movie during surgery. The idea is to keep them relaxed while their procedure is carried out under spinal block anesthesia. Consultant anaesthetist Dr Richard Griffiths (top marks for a topical cinema name, there) reports recent requests for The Sound of Music and Dirty Dancing. On the surface, it seems a winner: the hospital saves on sedation costs; the public can expand their cinephilia (and avoid the risks of a general anaesthetic). But anyone with a collection of more than three DVDs will know that they have a way of slipping into the wrong box. Here are five movies to check you're not inadvertently watching as you go under the knife. »

Today, the Film Distributors’ Association (Fda) have announced the results of an interesting and quite substantial poll to determine UK cinema audiences’ favourite movie icons of all time…and there might be one or two surprises in who comes to mind for true big screen icons.
The top twenty spans seven decades of the cinema, from the 1940s to the 2000s. It embraces a ‘who’s who’ of stylish screen heroes – and some villains – who have made an indelible impression on audiences’ hearts and minds in successive generations to earn their places in cinematic folklore.
The survey was conducted online for Fda by ShowFilmFirst in two stages – firstly to seek a long list of public nominations of characters who had come to personify essential qualities of the cinema itself; and then a vote for the top twenty. More than 2,000 people aged 15 and over contributed nominations, while more than 7,000 participated in »

Clark Gregg is in New York this week for the Tribeca Film Festival with "Trust Me" -- a dark comedy he wrote, directed and stars in -- but he took time out of his busy schedule to talk with HuffPost Live host Ricky Camilleri about "The Lift."
Some background: Gregg, who played Agent Coulson in "Marvel's The Avengers" last year, is married to "Dirty Dancing" star Jennifer Grey. That union raises the obvious roundabout question: In their spare time, does the couple enjoy reenacting the iconic "Dirty Dancing" moment when Grey was lifted into the air by Patrick Swayze?
"Yeah, that's all we do actually. Each morning we wake up and I do the lift. And then I put Baby in the corner," Gregg said with a roll of his eye. "Then she stabs me with Loki's spear and we live out our film moments." Gregg's Coulson died at the »

The battle of the exes rages on! Talking about his past relationships in One Direction’s upcoming documentary, ‘This Is Us,’ Harry stirs the pot some more, saying that his time linked to T-Swift was not easy at all. Will these two ever stop dissing each other?
Just as the feud between exes Harry Styles and Taylor Swift seemed to be dying down, comments reportedly made by the One Direction singer in his upcoming movie This Is Us may have just spawned a new revenge album.
In the movie, Harry reportedly talks about his love life — which apparently has long been unlucky — and referring to his relationship with Taylor says that it was “a pain in the arse,” according to the Daily Star.
We’re not sure if he means the actual relationship or the onslaught of revenge disses that followed the couple’s breakup, »

Sir Bruce Forsyth has hinted further at a possible retirement from showbusiness in a new interview.
The 85-year-old Strictly Come Dancing co-host revealed that he may leave the UK for six months every year, in order to avoid the cold winter months.
Forsyth stated that he may head to Puerto Rico for six months, the homeland of his wife of 30 years Wilnelia Merced.
"It's 85°F there. I don't know why I came back to this stinking cold place," he told Radio Times.
"I would contemplate just doing six months a year in this country. If this is going to be our regular winter, I'm going to vanish in October and come back at the end of May."
When reminded that he would miss Strictly in those months, he replied: "Oh yes, but we'll forget about that... "
Forsyth also hit out at people who criticised him during the finale of last »
The late great Patrick Swayze had quite the impact on film history. His most iconic roles were of course his two iconic chick flick leading man roles in Dirty Dancing and Ghost. One might assume with such particular favourites for female cinema goers, that Swayze was your typical romantic leading man, a world away from being a hardass. Few actors can cross over between the romantic hero roles and the action roles with believability, but one of the greatest crossover artists was Mr Swayze starring as two of the coolest action film characters to grace the silver screen. Here I revisit both those roles, looking back at Point Break and Road House.
Before getting onto Swayze, I’ll start with the other reasons why Point Break is brilliant. In reality it shouldn’t be. »

In Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, Christian Bale redefined Batman. No longer a pouty-lipped playboy with curly hair and a soft spot for blondes, this Batman was brawnier than ever before with more articulated body armor, higher tech weaponry and a low, growling voice that strikes terror into the hearts of criminals.and sniggers from moviegoers. Since Batman Begins debuted in 2005, everyone has taken a whack at impersonating Bale's Batman, but youtube uses PistolShrimps took his to a new level of absurdity with this video (tipped by Geeks Are Sexy). What, this vid imagines, if Bale's gravel-toned Batman stepped in for Harry Potter's Hermione Granger? Star Wars' Princess Leia? 2001: A Space Odyssey's murderous computer Hal? The Wizard of Oz's Dorothy Gale? Home Alone's Kevin McCallister? Dirty Dancing's Frances 'Baby' Houseman? Casablanca's song-man Sam? Forrest Gump's easily befuddled title character? The short answer is much more pathos, »
