We all have dreams of being with someone older than us. The one that is out of reach and sits only in our fantasy like a teacher, co-worker or perhaps a babysitter. In director Chris Peckover’s latest horror film Safe Neighborhood, we learn that such desires can be deadly. Opening as a similar story line to the recent wave of tense home invasion films, Peckover tells the story of family going through the motions during the holidays. Led by talented veteran actors such as Virginia Madsen (Candyman), Patrick Warburton (Family Guy) and rising talent like Levi Miller (Pan) and Olivia DeJonge as well as Ed Oxenbould of The Visit, we find that Luke (Miller) even in his early teen years still needs a babysitter. With a night of partying, Luke’s parent’s (Madsen and Warburton) are heading off to another Christmas get together, expecting just another night of their kids being babysat. »

One of the biggest companies in mobile is changing its name — Sgn is out, and Jam City is in. Sgn, which was short for Social Gaming Network, is rebranding because its name was a “corporate acronym that lacked the spirit of our products,” CEO Chris DeWolfe said in a statement. The new, punchier name for the 500-person company harnesses “the success of our games — particularly, our ‘Jam’ game franchise — to animate our studio’s identity.” The newly minted Jam City has been responsible for several major mobile successes, including licensed titles like “Marvel Avengers Academy” and “Family Guy: The Quest. »

That either Anika Calhoun or Rhonda Lyon — last seen in the Season 2 finale brawling at the edge of a high-rise balcony — plummeted into the open arms of the Grim Reaper seemed an inevitability. But according to showrunner Ilene Chaiken, she and series creators Lee Daniels and Danny Strong didn’t decide who was damned until well after that fight sequence was shot. »
If you’re getting too old for this ish, you probably remember the original Lethal Weapon franchise: a series of buddy-cop films that launched in the late 1980s and capitalized on the chemistry between leads Danny Glover and Mel Gibson.
Fox’s TV-series reboot of the movies updates the action but follows the same formula: Its co-stars Damon Wayans (in the Roger Murtagh role) and Clayne Crawford (as Martin Riggs) play off each other incredibly well, injecting a ton of humor into what is, essentially, just another police procedural.
In a moment, we’ll want to hear what you think of the pilot. »

Jimmy Kimmel did an awesome job hosting, and even managed to point out all of the annoying gluten free stars in the audience after passing out Pb&J sandwiches his mom made. And he hoped nobody was allergic to nuts!
Congrats to all the winners. How many surprised you by the way things turned out? FX proved that there may be too much television to choose from, but what they're putting out there is of the great variety.
HBO offered up repeats with Game of Thrones and Veep, Keeping The Americans from a Best Drama win, but Rami Malek got the best actor win, even if we were also cheering heartily for Matthew Rhys. And our girl »

If it weren’t for the four little Minions who flex their pipes at the opening of “Sing,” you wouldn’t necessarily know that the massively entertaining jukebox musical that follows hails from the same studio that brought you “Despicable Me” and “The Secret Life of Pets.” The story of an underdog koala who concocts a singing competition as a last-ditch attempt to save his over-extended theater, “Sing” could just as easily be the work of Pixar, DreamWorks, or Walt Disney Animation Studios. (To wit, more than a few savvy parents will probably pass this off as the “Zootopia” sequel their kids have been wanting.) But for Illumination Entertainment, “Sing” is a game-changer, underscoring why company founder Chris Meledandri is the hottest name in animation today.
