Ryan Gosling has grown accustomed to crowds of rowdy girls screaming his name, but his biggest fans might be his La La Land co-stars Emma Stone and John Legend. Et caught up with the film's cast in Los Angeles on Monday, where the stars couldn't say enough good things about Gosling.
Stone famously worked with Gosling in 2011's Crazy, Stupid, Love, in which the duo recreated the famous Dirty Dancing lift. They return to the dance floor in La La Land, so Et's Carly Steel asked Stone to describe Gosling's dance moves in three words.
"Really super great," Stone answered.
In the upcoming musical, directed by Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), Stone plays an aspiring actress named Mia involved in a love affair with a dedicated jazz musician named Sebastian (Gosling). Set in modern day Los Angeles, the couple »
Back in 2012, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots sang "Call Me Maybe" with Carly Rae Jepsen and it was the greatest thing ever. Months later, though, it got even better. Fallon and the band were joined by Mariah Carey on what was then Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and they cranked out a rousing rendition of her holiday pop classic, "All I Want For Christmas Is You." Though Carey's recorded version will indubitably be played millions of times in the coming weeks, you probably won't hear anything like this. Fallon and company are playing their toy instruments and a small chorus of kids are on backup, while everyone is dressed in their holiday finest. It's totally irresistible, even for the most Grinch-like viewer.

More on the Back To The Future remake news below.
There are some movies that simply cannot be remade. Ever. Two at the forefront of discussion today are E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial and Back To The Future. The producer of both of those movies, Frank Marshall, has been speaking to Yahoo! Movies that he will never, ever give permission for a redo of either.
“Yeah [we won’t reboot Back to The Future], as long as I have my say. No, that one exists just like E.T. – we’re never touching those. I love watching it.”
Earlier this year, Allied and Forrest Gump director Robert Zemeckis said that even if Universal Pictures wanted to, a remake of Back to the Future could not go ahead without the approval of himself and writer Bob Gale.

The first dance between a newly married couple can often be incredibly emotional, but these six unique first dances take that principle to the next level.
All we have to say is: We’re not crying. You’re crying.
1. When this paraplegic veteran surprised his bride by dancing at their wedding without their wheelchair.

Back in 1990, Pedro Almodóvar was coming off a string of critical and commercial darlings thanks to “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and “Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!,” two female-charged stories with distinct comedic voices. Producer Scott Rudin, meanwhile, was shepherding Paul Rudnick’s script about a singing nun into production, changing drafts numerous times and trying and failing to land Bette Midler as a star. Shockingly, Rudin almost landed Almodóvar as the director of “Sister Act,” but the director’s own self-doubt and skepticism of Hollywood turned him away.
In a new interview with The New Yorker, Almodóvar revealed exactly why he decided to pass on “Sister Act,” which ended up starring Whoopi Goldberg and grossing over $200 million at the worldwide box office. “Maybe it’s because I didn’t trust my English, »

The programme, which goes by the name of The Keith And Paddy Picture Show, will run for five half hour episodes, and it’s billed as “an affectionate and humorous tribute to some of Keith and Paddy's favourite movies of all time”. The idea is that in each episode, the pair will recreate a famous film, with the help of a celebrity cast.
You’ll get to see not only the finished recreation, but also behind the scenes material as Lemon and McGuinness try and pull each film spoof together.
The Keith And Paddy Picture Show is being earmarked for a Saturday night slot at »
Zendaya has no time for haters!
The 20-year-old actress opens up in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter about her new role in Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming and addressed the racially charged backlash she's received after rumors surfaced that she might be playing Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker's love interest.

"People are going to react over anything," she tells the magazine. "But nothing [about who she is playing] is fact. It's like, you guys are just making sh*t up at this point and then reacting to it. It's funny to watch the guessing game."
"But of course there's going to be outrage over that because for some reason some people just aren't ready," she adds. "I'm like, 'I don't know what America you live in, but from what I see when I walk outside my streets of New York right now, I see lots »

What Netflix’s Stranger Things is to 80s sci-fi horror, Amazon’s Red Oaks is to 80s coming-of-age romantic comedy. Without slipping into parody, both are a continuation of a familiar style of storytelling featuring characters and themes we know and love. If Stranger Things takes its cues from Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter, Red Oaks has made itself the inheritor of John Hughes, Rob Reiner and Amy Heckerling. (In a neat connection, Heckerling has directed multiple episodes of Red Oaks, which also stars Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Dirty Dancing’s Jennifer Grey, stitching it firmly into that continuity.)

Doing the Time Warp again is trickier than it looks, as this Fox Halloween tribute to the original Rocky Horror shows...
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a formula that continues to work astonishingly well, all things considered. It’s a borderline nonsensical celebration of the camp and the queer that still delights audiences four decades on. It’s also a formula that a lot of filmmakers and stage directors are fearful to change. Not least because the musical and film has such a devout and protective purist fan-base.

Redoing Rocky Horror is a Herculean task, then, but, in my eyes, nobody is better equipped to tackle it than Kenny Ortega. »

Once a blockbuster staple, the power ballad was the ultimate movie accompaniment. We look back at some of the classics...
For a glorious period from the mid-80s throughout the 90s, the biggest summer blockbusters were only worth their salt if they had an equally gargantuan song at the head their soundtrack. Often the success of one was inexorably linked to the other, with the likes of Four Weddings And A Funeral's feats matched and even exceeded by Wet Wet Wet's accompanying Love Is All Around.
The greatest and most successful songs belong to the power ballad genre, and are as emotionally charged and forceful as the gods of epic balladry such as Journey, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi and Meat Loaf. As the 90s became the 00s and the charts became increasingly irrelevant, the movie ballad became almost defunct, with even the song-dominant film soundtrack being »
Donald Trump’s rise on the national stage was fueled by Twitter, letting him circumvent the mainstream media by tweeting directly to his 12.6 million followers.
By the same token, in this election year unprecedented numbers of celebrities are using the tools of internet video and social media to voice their unfiltered political leanings — which, generally speaking, have been against Trump and for Hillary Clinton.
In past election years, popular actors and musicians stumped for their favored candidates on the campaign trail. For example, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson were among those supporting Barack Obama in 2012 with in-person appearances.
That’s still the case today, but increasingly celebs have been using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms to express their political viewpoints, either humorously or earnestly. The latest anti-Trump salvo to go viral: Kathy Griffin’s F-bomb-laced parody of the Clinton campaign’s “Mirrors” ad. The original spot shows a series of girls »

“One of the lessons of adulthood is disappointment,” says a bleary-eyed Abigail Pogrebin as she muses on her time in the original Broadway production of “Merrily We Roll Along,” Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince’s notorious flop that ended their decades-long collaborative friendship and the subject of Lonny Price’s nostalgic documentary, “Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened,” which debuted at the New York Film Festival.
Price, (whom “Dirty Dancing” fans may recognize as the guy who put Baby in the corner), was part of the original cast of the musical. Based on the popular 1934 play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, “Merrily” tells the life stories of its three main characters in reverse order; they start out bitter and jaded adults, and by the show’s end have reverted to hopeful and starry-eyed kids. Prince, the legendary Broadway producer and the first to combine producing with directing, »

They’ve never felt this way before. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s second debate has been dubbed into a duet to “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life”, the Oscar-winning theme song from “Dirty Dancing”.

What if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump just busted out in a song during the second presidential debate on Sunday? Well, some genius cut the debate video to make it look like the duo sang “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.” In the video posted by the Dutch Lucky TV, Trump and Clinton walk onto the stage to greet audiences, only for Trump to take the mic and start singing the male verse of the song from “Dirty Dancing.” He stares lovingly at Clinton, before she sings the female part of the duet. And for the last 25 seconds of. »

Despite passing away from cancer at the young age of 57, 80s icon Patrick Swayze kept acting up until the time of his death, appearing in a handful of movies and starring in the A&E drama The Beast. His untimely demise came in 2009, the same year Zombieland stormed theaters. And as it turns out, Patrick Swayze was actually supposed to play himself in that movie. This, unfortunately, didn't came to pass.
As Zombieland fans know, it was Bill Murray that would go onto assume the role of himself, playing a heightened version of his Hollywood persona.

In this horror action comedy, Woody Harrelson's Tallahassee and his survivor friends played by Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin decided to »
