ProSiebenSat.1 and 20th Century Fox Television Distribution have extended a licensing agreement that provides the German broadcasting group with major feature films and TV series, including blockbusters “Alien: Covenant” and “Logan.”
While the broadcasting rights apply to ProSiebenSat.1’s free TV stations in Germany, Austria, and German-speaking Switzerland, the deal also includes selected exclusive rights for the group’s pay-tv and subscription video-on-demand platforms.
Titles covered by the agreement include such recent box office hits as “Deadpool,” “The Martian” and “Ice Age: Collision Course,” as well as series “The Gifted,” “The Mick” and the critically acclaimed “This Is Us.” The broadcasting group said 20th Century Fox Television’s TV series would strengthen the group’s programming supply in the long term.
“Be it big-budget blockbusters or strong series, the studio delivers exactly the kind of television our viewers want to see,” said Ruediger Boess, ProSiebenSat.1’s executive vice president of group programming acquisitions. “We »

Sometimes Emily Hampshire slips into character during dates.
Things get awkward, the Canadian actress tells Et, when her courter suddenly realizes that she's not Stevie Budd, the deadpan, buttoned-up motel clerk she hilariously portrays on Pop TV's Schitt's Creek, which just finished airing a critically acclaimed third season earlier this year. In fact, Hampshire, who frequently breaks into uproarious giggle fits during our freewheeling interview, couldn't be more infectiously giddy and refreshingly forthcoming.
"I feel bad that I'm not Stevie for them, that I'm not as cool as Stevie," the 35-year-old actress says. "They meet me and they're like, 'Oh, you're way more animated than Stevie is.' I can hear the disappointment in their voice."
That's when, she acknowledges, "I try to overcompensate for not being Stevie."
So then they get Jennifer Goines, the brainy but unhinged heroine she plays on Syfy's 12 Monkeys. If you know Jennifer, you know this means Hampshire's dates end with »
What makes a movie franchise a franchise and not just a collection of similar films? Commonalities.
Sometimes it’s just a character by himself that makes it a franchise (Tarzan). At other times a common theme (Final Destination). Sometimes films of a franchise will share a common style if they are all made by the same filmmakers (Jason Bourne), or expand on a singular story (Star Wars). For others, it's a gimmick or hook (Home Alone), or a premise (Planet of the Apes).
The Alien franchise doesn’t necessarily fit into any of these categories; although it has featured all of these traits at one time or another. It started in 1979 with the release of Alien, a sequel came seven years later in Aliens, »

It looks like a family affair all around, from production crew to plot when it comes to Reese Witherspoon and Michael Sheen’s new “modern” romantic comedy Home Again which has just released its brand new trailer.
Starring Reese Witherspoon, Michael Sheen, Candice Bergen, and Lake Bell, Home Alone focuses on Alice (Witherspoon) and her emergence back into the world of dating after separating from her husband (Michael Sheen). The trailer has Witherspoon, verging over the boundaries of 40 and bedding at least one younger lover after moving three young men into her house.
Produced by Nancy Meyers (The Intern, It’s Complicated, What Women Want, The Holiday) and written and directed by her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer, Home Again is a story of love, friendship, and the families we create. And one very big life lesson: Starting over is not for beginners.
Home Again will be released in »

Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest stars in the world right now. Not only is he known for invigorating franchises, but he’s just an all-around good guy that everyone seems to want to work with. Dwayne Johnson could probably make any movie he wanted to right now, and he’s probably been offered plenty of […]

It's hard to argue against the logic that Dwayne Johnson is the biggest movie star in the world these days, especially after a report from last year that revealed he is now the highest-paid actor in all 7 continents. The actor even has a pretty good sense of humor about all of his astronomical success, which is proven in a hilarious new video where he's being pitched a number of ludicrous projects by his "agent," played by Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Titus Burgess. This video shows what sequels to Home Alone, Goodfellas, Napoleon Dynamite and even The Revenant might look like, starring The Rock.
This video comes from GQ, as part of the publication's "comedy issue," which starts with The Rock coming in for a meeting with his agent, where he says there are some lucrative franchises being lined up for the actor. First up, Martin Scorsese wants The Rock to »
“Better Watch Out,” formerly known as “Safe Neighborhood,” stars DeJonge as a babysitter who, one snowy night on a quiet suburban street, must defend her twelve-year-old charge (Levi Miller) from intruders but quickly learns that this is an extraordinary home invasion that demands an equally extraordinary response. Co-stars are Virginia Madsen, Patrick Warburton, Ed Oxenbould, Aleks Mikic and Dacre Montgomery (“Power Rangers”).
The film will receive a theatrical and digital release on Oct. 6, with a home video release to follow in time for the holiday season.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s latest film, “The Fate of the Furious,” opened in theaters April 14 and has grossed over $1 billion worldwide. Now, the actor is ready for his next big movie role. In a video he shot for GQ Magazine, for which he graces the cover of the June issue, the actor stars in imaginary sequels or some famous movie franchises, and the result is simply hilarious.
In the video, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” actor Tituss Burgess plays Johnson’s agent, who cannot come up with one good idea for a movie in which the actor should star. “Martin Scorsese wants you for ‘Goodfellas 2,'” Burgess says. “You play Joe Pesci’s illegitimate son who moves to Queens trying to make it in the comedy scene.”
After realizing that that’s a terrible idea, »

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.
As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..
Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

John Hughes was a beloved, respected filmmaker known for writing and directing classics such as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club and more. But there are plenty of movies that he scripted, only to have someone else direct them. Movies such as Mr. Mom, Home Alone and more had scripts from […]

No one does a dinner party like a Real Housewife.
It's Tinsley's first time meeting Dorinda, and she's nervous because she knows Sonja is fighting with her.
I don't think there's anything possibly free about staying at Sonja Morgan's house. So I think Tinsley may not be paying with benjamins, but she's definitely paying in other ways.
Dorinda Permalink: I don't think there's anything possibly free about staying at Sonja Morgan's house. So I... Added: April 26, 2017
It takes about 10 seconds for Tinsley to bring up her arrest and Dorinda almost chokes on her drink. She assures her that no one is going to judge her because everyone in his group has messed up, and she's not wrong. »

With his “Home Alone” days long behind him, Macaulay Culkin has done everything from act in parody videos as a grown-up Kevin McAllister to beating an empty box as a drum in a band called The Pizza Underground. But his latest performance is by far his most bizarre. Culkin dresses up as Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain in a new music video by Father John Misty… and then he gets crucified. He’s up there on a cross right next to Jon Arbuckle of “Garfield” and Bill Clinton playing the saxophone. Yes, really. The new music video is for singer/songwriter »

Guardians of the Universe Vol. 2 is never less than explosively, even ornately inventive — Doctor Strange, by comparison, is a chaste classic of Shaker design — with the perhaps unavoidable trade-off that it’s not always as breezily, casually inventive as the 2014 Guardians, either. But the movie will make fans happy, very happy, and it will reduce everyone else to a mass of cooing, goo-goo-ing ninnies, all in the thrall of a character named Baby Groot.

Edward Furlong, once a young rising star known for “Terminator 2” and “American History X,” has been arrested multiple times as an adult on domestic violence charges. Macaulay Culkin, star of the first two “Home Alone” movies, was arrested in Oklahoma City for possession of controlled substances in 2007. Jake Lloyd, who played Anakin Skywalker in “Star Wars Episode I,” was arrested for reckless driving and resisting arrest in 2015. His mother later said that Lloyd had been suffering from schizophrenia. Shia Labeouf, who got his big start as a child actor on the Disney Channel show “Even Stevens,” was charged with »

Post-apocalyptic films were a dime a dozen in the early ‘80s. They were almost always done on the cheap – a small cast of a few survivors, a barren desert and some rags for wardrobe, and voila! Throw it on HBO for a few years and call it a day. But sometimes ambition seeps in, and Night of the Comet (1984) is one of the best examples of low budget ingenuity, smart, sharply drawn characters, and a whole lot of heart. When the aliens return to take back the earth (do you want to claim responsibility for this freak show?) and wish to be shown a film indicative of the ‘80s, show them this – it represents all the best qualities of the decade’s filmmaking.
Distributed by Atlantic Releasing Corporation in mid-November, Night of the Comet brought in over $14 million against a $700,000 budget, making it an indie success with audiences and critics alike. »

What’s bonding time without a good pair of bunny ears?
In the shot, the 19-year-old model lounges on Culkin’s lap while dressed casually and sporting a pair of bunny ears.
She captioned the photo with a simple rabbit emoji. Meanwhile, Culkin, 36, is all smiles in the picture, sporting a sleeveless shirt and dark pants.
This isn’t the first time Jackson and Culkin have spent some social media-worthy quality time together.
In December, »
