"Tomorrowland" is an extremely appropriate title for the season finale of Mad Men - and not just because Don is taking his kids to Disneyland. It's also an indicator of Don's newfound optimism, as he looks ahead to the future with rose-colored glasses (he even does a cannonball into the pool!). The reason for his sunny disposition? Love. And the decision he makes as a result is jaw-dropping. Don's not the only one thinking good thoughts; things are getting better for Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce as well. I can't really divulge much about the episode without giving away spoilers, but allow me to say this: the finale is a nice close to an already fantastic season. For details about the biggest shockers of the evening, just read more. Meet Mrs. Draper No. 3: Is Don a hopeless romantic? He takes the kids on a business trip to California (they can »

If you don't just skip the occasional theater post on The Film Experience you may know of my love of Tony winner Donna Murphy. She has what might be her most significant screen role ever this very year. 'But what they want from her is....her voice.' She is playing Mother Gothel, the villainess of Disney's Tangled. She's the one who grounded Rapunzel, like, forever. [Okay, stop gagging. I know the juvenilia of the Tangled marketing has been entirely off-putting but let's stay positive for two minutes.]
Here's the first image release of Mother Gothel, just released.
Tangled's song score -- eight new songs the soundtrack is out in November the week before the movie -- is by Alan Menken so we hope against hope that the songs will be good and some of his past work is very good indeed. Lately it hasn't been quite so magical but at the very least a Menken score would have to be preferrable to the pop-song laden trailer music which led us »

In the U.S. version (debuting Jan. 9 at 9 p.m.), William H.

So when the Emmy-nominated Hendricks came to the Ktla Morning Show Thursday (July 29), Zap2it had to ask her about a scene from last season that a lot of people read as a sign that her character, the smart, sexy Joan Holloway, and ad man Don Draper (Jon Hamm) had a past as more than just co-workers.
"It's really funny. I've had that response from a lot of people who say, 'What about Joan and Don?' And I'm like, 'Where are you getting this?'" she says, laughing.
The scene is from "Guy Walks into an Advertising Agency" -- "the lawnmower episode," as Hendricks puts it. Joan and Don are in a hospital waiting room after a »
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Eclipse meadow scene The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’s soundtrack compilation is scheduled to be released in the United States on June 8, or about three weeks before the movie opens on North American screens. At this stage, what songs will be included in the soundtrack album is most anybody’s guess. According to earlier reports, Muse’s song for the film is out. Others have it that just about everybody, from Adam Lambert to Justin Bieber (dueting with Robert Pattinson…), will be heard on the album’s soundtrack. Placido Domingo anyone? What about Joan Jett? Band 100 Monkeys‘ Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper Hale in the Twilight Saga movies, has reportedly also offered songs from his band. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse score [...] »
