Jamie Foxx has some mad singing skills! And moves like Jagger. The 47-year-old actor showcased several impressions of top music artists on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, channeling the likes of Jennifer Hudson, John Legend and Mick Jagger while playing "Wheel of Musical Impressions" with host Jimmy Fallon. First, he did his best impersonation of the Rolling Stones frontman singing "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King. He then turned on the romance with a smooth, rather nonchalant impression of Legend singing...the Toys"R"Us jingle. Now, the question is, will Legend reciprocate? But it was Foxx's rendition of Hudson belting out a »
Jamie Foxx channeled other famous entertainers while playing “Wheel of Musical Impressions” with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday’s “Tonight Show.” Foxx started things off strong with a spot-on impression of Mick Jagger singing “Hakuna Matata.” Fallon came right back and did Barry Gibb singing the Barney song “I Love You, You Love Me.” Foxx was up next, this time doing John Legend singing the Toys R Us jingle. “He don’t never get excited!” Foxx said of Legend.

From anime to pitch-black thrillers, here's our pick of the underappreciated movies of 1987...
Sometimes, the challenge with these lists isn't just what to put in, but what to leave out. We loved Princess Bride, but with a decent showing at the box office and a huge cult following, isn't it a bit too popular to be described as underappreciated? Likewise Joe Dante's Innerspace, a fabulously geeky, comic reworking of the 60s sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage.
What we've gone for instead is a mix of genre fare, dramas and animated films that may have garnered a cult following since, but didn't do well either critically or financially at the time of release. Some of the movies on our list just about made their money back, but none made anything close to the sort of returns enjoyed by the likes of 1987's biggest films - Three Men And A Baby, Fatal Attraction »
These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.
But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »
We kicked off this week with a look at Hot Toys new Hawkeye action figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, fittingly, we end it with one of the coolest dolls offered in this latest line-up. Yes, its our first look at Tony Stark's Iron Man Mark VII Stealth Armor. Though, it should be noted, there is nothing to indicate or confirm that we'll actually get to see this armor, which allows Tony to travel undetected under the cloak of night, on the big screen in Avengers 2 when it opens this May.
The Iron Man Mark VII Stealth Mode collectible figure is the latest addition to Hot Toys upcoming action figure line for director Joss Whedon's anticipated sequel. The highly detailed doll features multiple layers and various shades of metallic and matte black color with digital camouflage design, translucent black chest armor and articulated flaps on back of legs, »
It’s a bittersweet moment to be at PDI/DreamWorks.
Just after celebrating DWA’s Golden Globe win and an Oscar nomination for “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” the Redwood City, Calif.-based animation studio that DreamWorks Animation acquired in 2000 is being shut down as part of a major reorganization by its parent company after a string of box office disappointments have taken a creative and financial toll.
Pdi, which was founded by Carl Rosendahl in 1980 as Pacific Data Images, started as a visual effects studio, producing computer-generated graphics for broadcast networks, TV shows and commercials before working on films such as “Batman Forever,” “The Arrival,” “Terminator 2,” “Toys” and “Angels in the Outfield.”
It later expanded into feature animation, with its first Dwa collaboration, 1998’s “Antz,” launching Katzenberg’s toon studio. “Shrek” soon followed in 2001, also produced by Pdi, which went on to win the Oscar for best animated »
