Great Job, Internet!: Look at how happy people were in the ’90s in this blissful dance-scene supercut

7 February 2017 12:15 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Hello, online millennials! Do you recall the ’90s? Bill Clinton was our sax-playing emperor of America (or, as we called it back then, “president”). For fun, instead of shit-posting or hate-scrolling through Twitter we squeezed yogurt into our mouths while skateboarding with cartoon dogs. An app was a thing that came with ranch dressing, the Antarctic ice shelf was still intact, and MTV was still cool. It was a merry decade, where nothing was wrong and everything was fun.

Or at least it would seem that way while watching this surprisingly intricate supercut of ’90s dance scenes, which splices together beloved films like Clerks, Gremlins, The Fifth Element, Pulp Fiction, Jerry Maguire, and, um, Cool As Ice at their most ecstatic moments. While the song choice is unfortunate—Bloodhound Gang’s “The Bad Touch,” a.k.a “We ain’t nothin’ but mammals”—the editing is inspired, cramming 83 different ...

Exclusive: Milla Jovovich Was 'Nervous' About 9-Year-Old Daughter's Acting Debut in Final 'Resident Evil'

26 January 2017 10:03 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

For the last 15 years, Milla Jovovich has been killing zombies and beating up bad guys in the blockbuster Resident Evil franchise, working with her husband, writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson.

However, for the franchise's sixth installment, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Jovovich got the chance to act alongside a very special co-star: her and Anderson's 9-year-old daughter, Ever.

Jovovich sat down with Et's Deidre Behar at a junket for the upcoming action horror epic, where the 41-year-old actress opened up about how hard her little girl worked to get the part.

Watch: Milla Kicks Zombie Butt in New 'Resident Evil'

"To be an actress, it's not just like, 'Oh yeah, we're going to put you in a movie.' She went through two years of training," the proud mom recounted.

While Jovovich began her career as a model before her breakthrough performance in the 1997 sci-fi classic The Fifth Element, the actress »

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

25 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

New Valerian Pic Unveils A High-Ranking Alien; Luc Besson Teases “Rich World”

4 January 2017 6:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After dabbling with cerebral science fiction in 2014’s Lucy, writer-director Luc Besson is set to introduce moviegoers to a brand new, and wildly ambitious space opera later this year.

It’s called Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, an effects-laden blockbuster that has already drawn comparisons to Jupiter Ascending and, perhaps most exciting of all, The Fifth Element, Besson’s cult sci-fi that’s set to ring in its 20th anniversary in 2017 – how very apropos. But in tapping into the French graphic novel by Pierre Christin, Luc Besson is engineering a fairly different cinematic experience with Valerian, which can essentially be pitched as an intergalactic road trip movie concerning two cops (Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan) who fight to protect a utopian 28th century Earth and its neighboring planets from the baddies.

Expect themes of time travel and other sci-fi conventions to rear their head in Valerian, one »

EuropaCorp to Lay Off Bulk of Theatrical Distribution Staff, Reveals What’s Next for ‘Valerian’ (Exclusive)

3 January 2017 12:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a series of film flops such as “Miss Sloane” and “Nine Lives,” EuropaCorp knew it needed to shake up its distribution system before the release next summer of “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.” With a budget of more than $170 million, the sci-fi epic is one of the most expensive independent films ever made. It’s also a passion project of EuropaCorp founder Luc Besson, who directed the movie.

On Tuesday, EuropaCorp announced that it was bringing in Stx Entertainment, the studio behind “Bad Moms” and “The Gift,” to oversee the marketing and distribution of “Valerian.” The two companies have signed a multi-year pact that will find EuropaCorp outsourcing its theatrical distribution team.

“Due to Luc’s track record and the excitement surrounding the upcoming release of ‘Valerian’ and a number of other factors, we found ourselves in the attractive position of being courted by many different »

Here at Et, we love an anniversary -- whether it’s the 20th anniversary of Scream or Clueless, 10 years in the life of The Hills or the magical time making No Doubt’s Magic Kingdom 20 years later. And as we settle in 2017, it’s time to look ahead at all those upcoming moments that will have you saying, “I remember when…”

Here’s a brief look at our favorite TV and film milestones of 2017:

Jan. 25, 2002: A Walk to Remember (15 Years)

While fans are crying over Mandy Moore’s Golden Globe-nominated performance on NBC’s hit new series This Is Us, it was just 15 years ago that they cried over her performance in the weepy adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ book about a girl with cancer who falls in love with a rebellious classmate.

Let’s not also forget that 2002 gave us Naomie Harris in 28 Days Later, Barbershop, Ryan Gosling in Murder by Numbers, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, [link »
