Famous TV Feuds - Oral Sex, Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric

28 August 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

A new book will expose a now famous TV feud between Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric, including an oral sex accusation from Katie to Diane. Sheila Weller has a new book due out called 'The News Sorority' that will include some of the fighting between the famous women of TV news. According to Radar Online, "Weller's book claims that Couric even threw Sawyer some serious shade when she found out that her competition had beaten her to an interview." The report notes that Couric was overheard allegedly saying, "I wonder who she blew this time to get it." While the book will shed some light on TV feuds, last month Kim Kardashian ended her feud with Katie Couric. The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, who lashed out at the Us chat show host last August, accusing her of being two-faced, celebrated Independence Day with the veteran journalist in the Hamptons, »

Update: ‘Magic Mike’ Sequel Moved Up To Wednesday Before Fourth Of July

27 August 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Updated, 3:15 Pm: Warner Bros said today it will give moviegoers two extra days to ogle Magic Mike 2 next Independence Day weekend. The sequel has been moved from July 3 to July 1. No Roman candle jokes, please.

Previously: Warner Bros has set Magic Mike 2 for July 3, 2015. The sequel to the 2012 film directed by Steven Soderbergh that was informed by Channing Tatum‘s early days as a male stripper. This is the latest extension of the pic that Soderbergh and Tatum hatched and financed themselves. It was a risk that turned into a major score when the original movie starring Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and other made $113.7M at the domestic box office — one of Soderbergh’s most lucrative movies ever — and has since spawned a Broadway musical now in the works.

Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

25 August 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”

Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars, »

From Oscar-winning to Homeland and more, here's what the cast of My So-Called Life have been up to over the past 2 decades...

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?

While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.

Claire Danes (Angela Chase)

After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »

Catch Gilbert Gottfried Doing The Epic Speech From Independence Day

22 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Gilbert Gottfried has made a career out of his unique voice and comedic time, creating some of memorable.and amusing.characters in film over the years. He.s probably best known for voicing Iago in Aladdin, but more recently, he decided to do redo a famous speech from another nineties hit, Independence Day. The result turns the rousing speech into a comedy goldmine, and is definitely worth a watch. In the short, 2-minute video, the footage from Independence Day is exactly what you will remember, with Bill Pullman standing in front of a ragtag band of civilians willing to get into janky planes and give up their lives in order to potentially save humanity from the threat of an alien invasion. Pullman.s speech ties freedom and Independence Day together in ways that are not the least bit cornball and actually, understandably, gets a group of random assholes to want »

Eros surprises viewers with new version of ‘Saare Jahan Se Achchha’

19 August 2014 9:47 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

This Independence Day, quite a few viewers were up for a surprise when they came across a new version of ‘Saare Jahan Se Achchha’ online. A video featuring dozens of artists, all of them being new to the world of professional singing, from across the globe, this was a one of its kind initiatives where entire concept, execution and actualization was done remotely with no physical presence required in putting it all together.

Says Vaibhav Vishal, Creative Head at Eros International, “At Eros Now, the ongoing attempt; and a strong underlying philosophy, if I may add; is to talk ‘to’ our audiences and not talk ‘at’ them. The lines between the media houses and their viewers have blurred, and constant one-on-one with the audiences is not just a smart tool, but is now a mandate. Our idea is to create a relatable and identifiable brand, thereby getting loyal viewers that eventually become our evangelists. »

The musical world of Doctor Who: From Ron Grainer to The Klf

19 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Digital Spy presents Doctor Who Week - seven days of special features celebrating the return of the world's favourite sci-fi series, and the arrival of a brand new Doctor - on August 23.

You don't need a classic theme for a great TV show, but as programmes from M*A*S*H and The X-Files to The Wire and Buffy The Vampire Slayer have shown, it certainly doesn't hurt.

Below, we take a look at the history of the revolutionary Doctor Who theme and also explore how the show has intertwined with the wider world of pop.

'Doctor Who Theme' [Original Version] - The Radiophonic Workshop (1963)

"Did I write that?" Ron Grainer apparently asked on hearing the completed version of the original theme crafted by the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop. "Most of it," Delia Derbyshire kindly replied.

Grainer attempted to get Derbyshire a co-writing credit but the policy of the time was to keep Workshop members anonymous, »

‘Charlie Countryman’ Director Fredrik Bond To Helm ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel

18 August 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

To recap: With “Independence Day 2” still in development in the spring/summer of 2013, two studios went head to head with dueling bad-guys-get-inside-the-White-House movies. Sony Pictures had “White House Down,” and released a few months earlier, FilmDistrict (now known as Focus Features) had “Olympus Has Fallen.” The conventional wisdom  tended to favor Sony; their film had stars like Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx and made $205 million worldwide (some notable critics enjoyed its ludicrousness). But at a costly $150 million, “White House Down” only made $73 million at home. In comparison, the cheaper to produce “Olympus Has Fallen,” featuring the cut-rate stars of Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart (sorry guys) made $161 million worldwide against a $70 million budget. The smaller film has the greater profit margin, thus a sequel is born. So unless you’ve blocked it out of your memory, Focus Features has already announced a sequel titled “London Has »

Are you ready for Geostorm? Hell, not even We're ready for Geostorm, because we can't yet convey in text the echo effect the title has when it escapes our mouths.

Singham Returns Movie Review

15 August 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Make no mistake when you walk into the second instalment of a Rohit Shetty-Ajay Devgan combo film, there is no room for any arty cinematic moments. Singham Returns is a reiteration of the Blockbuster hit film, Singham. Thankfully this one stays away from the remake category unlike the first one. So with cars to blow, Kareena to beautify the screen and Ajay to go all ‘Ataa Maaji Satakli’ on the baddies, lets step into the story realm.

Bajiao Singham (Devgan) is back with his ferocious attitude and walks into Mumbai, the city that never sleeps. Politics, power and prayers to the local Baba rule the roost. So naturally things wont stay the same, now that Singham is around. With Guruji (Anupam Kher) leading the social awareness aspect and bringing forth a younger generation of promising politicians into his party, feathers are ruffled for the bad guys. Unknown to them, »

Into the Storm and the changing face of the disaster movie

15 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The disaster movie hits the next level a week from now with the release of Into the Storm, a drama that sees a tornado rip through a small American town on the day of high school graduation. Directed by James Cameron protégé Steven Quale, the film introduces the found footage aesthetic to a story of a father (Richard Armitage) desperately trying to save his son (Max Deacon). There are multiple perspectives juggled, too, notably a pair of redneck daredevils getting close to the action in a bid to make a viral video and a professional storm-chasing outfit led by Matt Walsh's documentary maker. Think of it as Twister turned up to 11.

"The journey all these characters go through, I was hoping to do that in a more intimate way to show a disaster as opposed to the wide, epic, sweeping shots that a cinematic movie would traditionally do," Quale tells Digital Spy. »
