Wednesday night was historic for the NBA fans in many, many ways. Not only did Kobe Bryant play his last game for the Los Angeles Lakers after an iconic 20-year career, the Golden State Warriors won their 73rd game to become all-time winningest team for one season. But according to Espn host Rachel Nichols, the biggest surprise may have been the fact that Kanye West got “out-celebritied” for Bryant’s final game, forced to sit in (gasp!) the third row at the Staples Center.

Fox Sports’ Jason Whitlock was not among those impressed by Kobe Bryant’s Hollywood ending, when the Los Angeles Lakers legend dropped 60 points in his final NBA game. “His narcissism and selfishness destroyed a franchise,” Whitlock said a day later. “The Lakers are a laughing stock, and just had the most embarrassing season we’ve pretty much ever seen an NBA team have.” Then he accused Bryant of really only doing a pretty good Michael Jordan impersonation, one that apparently spanned his entire 20-year career: “The most fraudulent superstar celebrity athlete we have ever seen,” was how Whitlock summed the future Hall-of-Famer up. »

Los Angeles (AP) — Kobe Bryant went out with a Hollywood ending to his remarkable career. Bryant scored 60 points in his final game Wednesday night, wrapping up 20 years in the NBA with an unbelievable offensive showcase in the Los Angeles Lakers' 101-96 victory over the Utah Jazz. He scored 23 points in the fourth quarter, posting his first 50-point game since February 2009 and rallying the Lakers from a 15-point deficit to win the final game of the worst season in franchise history. "It's hard to believe it happened this way," Bryant said. "I'm

The 2016 Cannes Film Festival is about six weeks away, and today the opening film of this year’s highly prestigious festival was announced. Woody Allen’s 2016 effort Cafe Society will open out-of-competition at the festival on May 11th. It will be the third time that Woody Allen has had one of his films open the festival, following Hollywood Ending in 2002, and the brilliant Midnight In Paris in 2012.
Cafe Society, which stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, is Allen’s 46th directorial effort, and tells the story of a young man who arrives in Hollywood during the 1930s hoping to work in the film industry, falls in love, and finds himself swept up in the vibrant café society that defined the spirit of the age.

It's been announced that Woody Allen's latest movie, Cafe Society, has been selected to open the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival. This will be the third time that the event has kicked off with an Allen-directed flick (with 2002's Hollywood Ending and 2011's Midnight In Paris being the other two), and his fourteenth film to screen out of competition at the long-running festival....

As expected, Cannes director Thierry Fremaux has selected Woody Allen's latest, "Café Society," to open the 69th Festival International du Film de Cannes (May 11 to 22). The film will make its world premiere on Wednesday 11 May in the Palais des Festivals’ Grand Théâtre Lumière, per usual for Woody Allen, as an Official Selection Out of Competition title. It’s a record-breaking coup for the New York director who has already opened the Festival twice, with "Hollywood Ending" (2002) and "Midnight in Paris" (2011). The Competition Jury will be presided over by George Miller, and the Official Selection titles are due to be announced on April 14 (Indiewire takes a stab at what they might be here). Cannes veteran Jesse Eisenberg, who starred in last year's Competition entry, Joachim Trier's "Louder than Bombs" (April 8), moves from Lex Luthor in franchise blockbuster "Batman v Superman: »

As the rumors swirl when it comes to the line-up for the 69th Cannes Film Festival, today brings confirmation of one specific title. The festival announced today that Woody Allen‘s latest feature Café Society — which Amazon Studios is expected to release this summer — will open the event as an out-of-competition title, marking the third time one of his films has done so.
Led by Kristen Stewart (who we expect to also show up with Olivier Assayas‘ Personal Shopper) and Jesse Eisenberg, the announcement also comes with an official logline (following last week’s details from cinematographer Vittorio Storaro) and the first still, seen above. Check out the press release below in full and return for our review.

Cannes Film Festival favourite Woody Allen will open the 69th edition of the event on 11 May with an out of competition screening of Cafe Society, his latest opus, which features Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eissenberg.
This will be the fifth time Allen has figured in the Festival’s opening slot after Manhattan in 1979, Hollywood Ending in 2002, Midnight In Paris in 2011 and the trilogy New York Stories in 1989 in which Allen shared the bill with Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese.
Allen’s 46th feature as a director also has an all-star cast of Steve Carell, Parker Posey, Blake Lively, Corey Stoll, Jeannie Berlin and Ken Stott. Filming took place in Los Angeles and New York. Eisenberg plays a young man who arrives in Hollywood during the 1930s, hoping to work in the film industry, »

Scoring a hat trick, Woody Allen will open the Cannes Film Festival with his latest comedy, Café Society. This is a record-breaking third time the director will raise the curtain on Cannes after 2002’s Hollywood Ending, and 2011’s Midnight In Paris. As is typical of Allen’s films, Café Society will run out of competition. The 69th Cannes fest opens on May 11. Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Steve Carell and Corey Stoll star in the story of a… »
Woody Allen’s “Cafe Society,” starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, has been selected to open the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival. The film will make its world premiere in an out-of-competition slot on May 11, in advance of its release later this year through Amazon Studios, which acquired North American rights to the picture in February.
Allen remains one of the most celebrated American directors in France, and Cannes’ selection no doubt owes to the influence of Stephane Celerier’s Mars Distribution, which has handled the Gallic release of Allen’s recent output, dating the film’s French release for May 11. (Allen’s previous feature, “Irrational Man,” grossed $6.3 million in France — by far the pic’s strongest international box office performance.)
Little is known about Allen’s 46th feature as a director — and his 14th to screen out of competition at Cannes — except that in addition to the romantic reteaming »

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. puts its best foot forward with its thrilling, globe-trotting mid-season premiere Bouncing Back…
This review contains spoilers
3.11 Bouncing Back
Cards on the table – I thought Bouncing Back was ruddy brilliant, for rather a lot of reasons. Rarely has Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. kept this many plates spinning at once without any of the plot strands falling a little flat. This week – very promisingly for the run ahead - absolutely every element of the episode was highly watchable.
Monica Owusu-Breen (who’s been writing for the show since season 1’s The Well) proved here that she truly understands the appeal of S.H.I.E.L.D., by jumping straight into the action. There was no sitting around faffing at base. Instead, we pick up with Mack, Bobbi and Lance when they’ve already been plonked into the field in search of a potentially dangerous new Inhuman. »
This is not the Hollywood Ending fans have mind. Marvel's Agent Carter is in danger of being cancelled by ABC. Executive producer Michele Fazekas told EW the chances for a third season are "bad." The "Hollywood Ending" season two finale could end up being Agent Carter's TV series finale.
If there is a third season, Fazekas tells EW that there has been talk of sending Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter to London. They might keep her in L.A. though, or even send her back to New York. The cast also includes James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Enver Gjokaj as Chief Daniel Sousa, Wynn Everett as Whitney Frost, Reggie Austin as Jason Wilkes, and Chad Michael Murray as Chief Jack Thompson.

Amy Richau reviews the season finale of Agent Carter season 2…
The season finale of Agent Carter, “Hollywood Ending”, starts 60 seconds after the previous episode ended. It’s really too bad that ABC didn’t choose to air episodes 9 and 10 together as a two-hour grand finale instead of packaging episodes six & seven (which worked out Ok) and eight & nine (which was awkward and didn’t work much at all).
But let’s get back to episode 10. “Hollywood Ending” wraps up a lot of loose ends and gives the large supporting cast all a little screen time. It’s not an episode that offered much originality or surprises, but it was entertaining and satisfying to see Agent Carter have a happy ending in both her professional and personal life.

If Agent Carter isn't renewed for season 3, at least the season 2 finale provides a satisfying ending...
This review contains spoilers.
2.10 Hollywood Ending
Well, it’s fair to say that didn’t disappoint. It’s safe to say I didn’t get everything I wanted – Dottie to come back, for instance – but other than that it’s hard to be upset about anything in this episode. This series has really been more about the characters than the plot, and pretty much everyone’s been through the wringer by the time the episode ends. Predictably, not everyone survived, but it’s safe to say that the death wasn’t at all expected.
But first things first. If anyone’s fate bothers me here, it’s Jason Wilkes’. Whether or not we believe that he was being influenced by Zero Matter (and the show never quite convinced me he was »
After a solid and strong second season, ABC’s Agent Carter concluded its second year last night in its season finale as Peggy and her friends goes up against Whitney Frost as well as the threat that is Zero Matter. For the past two weeks, as we have gotten two episodes back to back last Tuesday and the one before that, there was so much that had come together and that needed to be concluded in the finale. I wasn’t sure how else they would have done it, but I was a little letdown with how they took down Whitney, although

The future isn’t looking too bright for Peggy and her pals at the Ssr. Following last night’s season finale, “Hollywood Ending,” Marvel’s Agent Carter saw 2.37 million viewers and a 0.7 demo rating overnight for the episode. That doesn’t yet factor in DVR playback, but it does tie with the series’ lowest ratings yet.
Hayley Atwell recently joined another ABC pilot, Conviction, with early rumors suggesting there could be a possibility of the actress tackling both series in their limited run capacity. Still, the ratings for last night’s finale won’t help matters when ABC begins to make decisions about the future of the McU on its network.
Atwell spoke to Cbr about the chance of her covering both series in the case they are each picked up in the next season:
“There is a chance, from what I know, if both shows get picked up, I’ll be doing both, »
