After seeing Cassie Scerbo’s fantastic performance in Sharknado I made it a point to track down and watch anything new movie she was in, which coupled with the ridiculous new re-titling (this film originally aired on Us television as Beasts of the Bering Sea), made Damn Sea Vampires! a must-watch. It doesn’t hurt that the film is also helmed by cinematographer Don E. FauntLeRoy – who cut his directorial teeth on two Anaconda sequels and a handful of Steven Seagal movies, including one of the star best post-2005 flicks, Renegade Justice (a personal fave).
Damn Sea Vampires! follows a family of treasure hunters: siblings Donna (Scerbo) and Joe and their father (Dobson), who spend their days dredging for gold beneath the Bering Sea. Having already lost a crew member, »

Dreamworks Animation CEO also reflected on an infamous 1991 memo, getting fired from Disney and 3D at his BFI London Film Festival keynote.
The firm behind the Shrek and How To Train Your Dragon franchises recently opened the Oriental DreamWorks facility in Shanghai, home to more than 200 artists, working on Kung Fu Panda 3 and two original films based on Chinese legends.
Delivering the BFI London Film Festival industry keynote, Katzenberg said of the original features: “These are movies that will be made in China, for China, as well as for export to the rest of the world.
“When we finally announce what these two stories are my guess is there will be a phenomenal sense of enthusiasm and pride from the public in China because these are their stories.”

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

The 2014/2015 NFL season is well under way, with some teams already looking like genuine Super Bowl contenders and others looking so bad they seem to be playing a different sport entirely.
With the time difference between the UK and Us meaning that most games don't kick-off until the evening hours over here, there's plenty of time to kill on Sundays waiting for the matches to start. Digital Spy picks out nine American football-based movies to pass the time on Sundays and get in the mood for the real thing...
1. Friday Night Lights (2004)
Based on the book of the same name (the TV series came later), Friday Night Lights tells the story of a high school American football outfit struggling to be the best they can be under the extreme pressure of expectation placed on them by the small Texan community they represent.

When asked by David Letterman on CBS's “Late Show,” Bill O'Reilly wasn't shy about presenting his take on the ongoing domestic violence scandal in the NFL. He also came prepared with a very clear solution. “If I'm the commissioner of the National Football League, you have a rule,” he said. “If you're arrested for a felony, you're immediately suspended, your salary is put in escrow. If you're acquitted of the felony, you get the back pay and you're reinstated. If you're convicted, you're done forever.” Also read: Real-Life Jerry Maguire: NFL Must Respond to Domestic Abuse Fiasco, But Don't Villainize Roger Goodell As he. »

During an intermission of a Chicago Blackhawks exhibition game on Tuesday night, Gooding, Jr. competed in a “Shoot the Puck” competition, putting on his best performance to score on goal.

Ah, Nashville. We watch you for the great music and Connie Britton‘s luminescent skin, but we continue to tune in to see how you’ll one-up yourself in terms of ridiculous plot lines. Seriously, what can you possibly add to a nighttime soap opera that’s already featured a country star in a coma, a fake miscarriage made more convincing with pig’s blood, and a murder-suicide carried out in order to prevent a sex tape from leaking? The only two possible answers here are a) a pregnancy of dubious paternity or b) the arrival of a heretofore unacknowledged evil twin.
Lucky for us, Hayden Panettiere is pregnant in real life, and her character, Juliette Barnes, had some drunk sex with evil Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson), the nasty record label exec who is most definitely not her boyfriend — how could she cheat on Avery (Jonathan Jackson)??? He became so likable! »

The bad news just keeps rolling in during what sports insiders are calling the “NFL's worst week (now month) ever,” but there may be a light at the end of this troubling domestic abuse-plagued tunnel. First there was the Baltimore Ravens' Ray Rice domestic violence scandal. Then Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson and Carolina Panthers’ Greg Hardy were put on their team's exempt lists as of Wednesday, and most recently Arizona Cardinals’ Jonathan Dwyer was arrested for domestic violence. But the NFL and the teams involved “will prevail, they will learn from this,” crisis management expert and CEO Centurion Michael Bilello told TheWrap. »

Picture yourself in a New York City movie theater. It’s December 14, 2001. The film you’re watching is Vanilla Sky, a sci-fi fantasy from director Cameron Crowe and Tom Cruise, who delighted the world with Jerry Maguire a few years earlier. You are probably not enjoying yourself (it received a D- on Cinemascore) and as the film nears its twisty, trippy conclusion, your mind might be drifting towards more actionable realities, like which subway line to take home or what to eat for dinner. But then you come to the final scene, and you immediately snap to attention. You watch Cruise stand atop the tallest building in New York at dawn and willfully leap. He falls past endless office windows, braces for impact and hits the pavement. It’s hard to imagine any New Yorker watching this scene and not immediately flashing back to the events that occurred just three months prior, when »

It's been 15 years since Haley Joel Osment starred in "The Sixth Sense" -- and these days, he's looking very different.The actor started trending on Twitter on Wednesday after new photos of him from the set of Kevin Smith's upcoming film, "Yoga Hosers," dropped online.Sporting a business suit, Nazi stache and slicked back hair, the 26-year-old former child star was barely recognizable as he worked. It's unclear who he'll be playing in the film, but he was surrounded by Nazi propaganda on set.While it's a pretty shocking transformation for the young star, keep in mind this is still a set -- and he looks pretty different in real life.Osment hit the red carpet just last week at the Toronto Film Festival, where he was promoting another Smith film, and looked more like the Haley Joel we've come to know in the past couple years (right).It's »

Roger Goodell is making yet another effort to clarify what the NFL did and did not know — and did and did not see — regarding the brutal beating Ray Rice administered on his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City casino elevator in February. “First, we did not see video of what took place inside the elevator until it was publicly released on Monday,” Goodell wrote in a letter to league owners, re-iterating comments he made to CBS on Tuesday. “When the new video evidence became available, we acted promptly and imposed an indefinite suspension on Mr. Rice.” Also read: Real-Life ‘Jerry Maguire »

The NFL swears executives did not see the surveillance footage of former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice knocking out his wife with one punch inside a casino elevator, but media outlets are citing sources saying otherwise, and former Raven Wally Williams agrees the league's statement is “a total cover-up.” Also read: Real-Life ‘Jerry Maguire’ Agent: Ray Rice's Stardom Stopped NFL From Issuing Harsher Punishment “I think it is a total cover-up by the NFL.

As the nation recoiled in horror at the video showing NFL star Ray Rice beating and dragging her around an Atlantic City casino, Janay Rice was defending her husband on Instagram. “I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend,” Janay Rice wrote, referring to TMZ's publication of the elevator surveillance video that led to her husband's termination by the Baltimore Ravens and suspension by the NFL.

It took months of criticism and, more significantly, the publication of a tape depicting the assault he committed against his then-fianceé, to get football star Ray Rice suspended indefinitely by the NFL and cut by the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL claims league officials hadn't seen the video when commissioner Roger Goodell gave Rice a two-game suspension, a relatively short punishment that earned the league so much flak that it had to re-write its bylaws. Whether Goodell really was ignorant of the tape, super agent Leigh Steinberg, whose life inspired the film “Jerry Maguire,” thinks the league knew more than enough to issue Rice a. »

TMZ has announced that it will release new details on Tuesday morning to prove that the NFL knew about the four-month old hotel elevator video that shows Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, and knocking her unconscious. The two have since married. TMZ's founder Harvey Levin spoke to Wttg Fox 5 in Washington DC about the video on Monday evening, saying that the NFL “turned a blind eye” to the surveillance video, insisting that they've known it existed.

Fear of commitment is one of those topics that pops up a lot in the world of romantic comedies. Jerry Maguire (1996) shows Tom Cruise struggling to say "I love you" in a convincing fashion, and in When Harry Met Sally (1989) Billy Crystal makes terrible excuses to leave early in the morning after each date. Failure To Launch (2006) spelled it out more bluntly than perhaps we needed – in Hollywood, men are afraid of love. Love is a scary business. Even so, it rarely comes with a health warning.
So I Married An Axe Murderer is that rare film. It suggests that the lead character is right to be terrified of commitment. In fact, running away might just save his life. This is a tricky idea to get right, because the audience »
Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm focuses on J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm), a floundering sports agent who is in desperate need of a big signing. Late night channel-flipping between a cricket match and Susan Boyle’s ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ brings inspiration (as it so often does) and soon Bernstein is journeying to India to host a talent competition that will determine which would-be cricketers have the best chance at being groomed into baseball players. Returning to America with the contest winners Rinku Singh (Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) in tow, the two prospects soon begin training under unorthodox coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), but have »
