Need for Speed Goes Fast and Furious in Payback Trailer

2 June 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

EA is restoring the Need For Speed franchise by giving it a fresh coat of paint in the form of a new The Fast & The Furious-inspired storyline!  See the debut trailer below!

Last year, EA introduced a new story mode for FIFA 17, the first of its kind, at E3 2016.  Since then, the massive gaming company has tried to incorporate stories for all of their, previously story-less, IPs.  First, we saw a hint of it with the reveal of Madden NFL 18.  Today, we get a heavy dose of it with Need For Speed: Payback.

If Vin Diesel doesn't jump in at one point yelling about family, EA will have missed out on a golden opportunity.  Obviously, this isn't a Fast & Furious video game, but it sure does seem like it.  Even the synopsis sounds like it would be in an earlier Fast & Furious movie, maybe F&F 2.5?  

Set in the underworld of Fortune Valley, »

Match Game Secrets Spilled: Pre-Game Drinking, Forbidden Doodles and More

30 April 2017 6:26 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s so cold on the set of Match Game (“How cold was it?”), my ____ had goosebumps.

The frighteningly frigid temperature of the show’s New York studio (almost balmy compared to how Letterman famously kept his Late Show digs) was but one of the discoveries made during TVLine’s (long-ago, pre-election) visit to the taping of what would be tonight’s episode, airing at 9/8c on ABC.

Jimmy Fallon on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

16 April 2017 6:36 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jimmy Fallon took a lot of heat for rubbing now President Donald Trump's hair on The Tonight Show last summer, and neither he nor the program have truly recovered since. With Stephen Colbert and ex-head Saturday Night Live writer Seth Meyers turning increasingly political pre- and post-election, Fallon has kept his show as non-topical as possible. That's his preference and temperament, but it's also kept him increasingly out-of-touch. Yes, people want to be entertained when they tune into late-night television, but escapism is almost impossible at this point in time. »

Louis C.K. on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

9 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Given the state of the world in 2017, it's almost unbelievable that this week marked only the seventh episode of Saturday Night Live this calendar year. Whatever momentum and ratings that it has gathered in that time, it's still constantly playing catch-up with its schedule as is. As popular as it's been (and ratings suggest it's insanely popular right now), it's still been hamstrung by the paucity of new episodes. That makes every one that it does that much more important.

Louis C.K.'s fourth episode was in line with his »

5 Reasons Why We’re Living In a Golden Age of Genre Films

8 April 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Yes, it’s only April and there have already been a few horror movie duds, from the lifeless sequel “Rings” to the laughable “The Bye Bye Man,” but genre fans have other reasons to celebrate. The first quarter of 2017 has been filled with exciting developments for horror, science fiction and supernatural storytelling, with more promising twists around the corner. Of course, anyone watching the variety of international genre cinema showcased at film festivals around the world was never despairing in the first place, but there are years in which few strong genre movies cross over to a mainstream audience, while plenty of subpar examples cram the multiplexes.

This is not one of those times. From exciting commercial successes to new venues for showcasing first-rate work, 2017 is crammed with reasons why we’re living in a golden age of genre cinema. Here are a few of them.

Volition announce Agents of Mayhem to arrive in August

3 April 2017 10:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Today Volition, whose titles include Saint’s Row and Red Faction, have announced that dropping in August on the PS4, Xbox One and the PC is the Agents of Mayhem.  An open-world, single-player, third-person action game that will see you delivering bullet-ridden justice to Legion and the super-villian Dr. Babylon.  As you can see from the trailer below, it’s going to get messy…

After the horrors of Devil’s Night, the world was left in ruins from the devastation that the shadowy supervillain organisation League of Evil League of Evil Gentleman Intent on Obliterating Nations (Legion) had left in its wake.

They needed heroes.

They got the Agents of Mayhem.

In a case of bad versus evil, this elite band of often unstable misfits, armed with a variety of crazy weapons, work under the watchful eye of Persephone Brimstone, ex-legion lieutenant, and her girl Friday, to bring down Legion and its mysterious leader, »

Bad News for President Trump: SNL in the Midst of a Ratings Renaissance

7 February 2017 11:01 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you’re wondering why President Donald Trump hasn’t tweeted about Saturday Night Live‘s terrible ratings, here’s one likely theory: The NBC sketch-comedy series is having its most-viewed season in 22 years.

Related2017 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Getting Cancelled? What’s on the Bubble?

The most recent SNL, in which Melissa McCarthy lampooned White House press secretary Sean Spicer, nabbed a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49, according to TVLine’s sister site, Variety. As such, the late-night laugher ranked behind only CBS’ The Big Bang Theory as the highest rated program in the demo.

Kristen Stewart on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

5 February 2017 6:45 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Kristen Stewart may have not seemed like an obvious choice to host Saturday Night Live, but aside from dropping an eff bomb during her monologue, she held her own throughout the night. The show didn't ask her to do very much, allowing the cast and other celebrities (one expected, one not so much) to do most of the heavy lifting.

Standouts this week include a new addition to the show's satirical take on the Trump administration, the culmination of a three-year story none of us knew was even unfolding, and »

2017’s Sundance Sales Are In Overdrive: Here’s Why, Plus See Our Full Deal Scorecard

27 January 2017 8:38 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Sundance Festival reveals the state of the indie film market, and 2017 will be remembered as the year of Amazon Studios and Netflix. And given the festival’s robust TV and Vr programs,, which were dominated by Google and Facebook/Oculus, there’s further digital disruption ahead.

According to one indie distributor, Sundance 2017’s valuations and sales are almost a third higher than last year. Put the same titles into the Sundance market two years ago, and they would have sold for far less. That’s because Netflix and Amazon Studios on the narrative side are dramatically driving up prices. “It’s just ridiculous what the digital guys are doing to the marketplace,” said one veteran indie CEO. “‘The Big Sick’ is a great little movie but it’s a $4 million -$6 million buy. There’s no logic to this model.”

However, Sundance has always been about the haves and the have-nots. »

Alec Baldwin Trolls Trump With Russian ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat (Photo)

7 January 2017 2:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Even when he’s not on “Saturday Night Live,” Alec Baldwin enjoys spoofing Donald Trump. It probably doesn’t hurt that it’s just so darn easy to get under the “Celebrity Apprentice” alum’s (orange) skin. The man who still occasionally plays our president-elect for Lorne Michaels and his new Not Ready for Primetime Players posted an Instagram of himself Friday in a perfect replica “Make America Great Again” cap. There was only one slight difference — Baldwin’s message was in Russian. Loud and clear, Alec. Also Read: Trump's Latest: 'Only Stupid People' Don't Want a Good Relationship With »
