Jennifer Lawrence was pretty much always adorable...and often, adorably awkward at celebrity events. Before she wielded a bow and arrow as Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence was introduced to much of the world as a relatively unknown Oscar nominee. She was just 20 years old when she was nominated for her first Academy Award, for her performance in Winter's Bone, her breakout role. She had previously starred on the TBS comedy series The Bill Engvall Show and the shows Medium, Cold Case and Monk (as a high school mascot!). Lawrence was very surprised that Winter's Bone got Oscar buzz. "Uh, I dunno," she told E! News »

65 million years in the making, Jurassic Park is still as popular today as it was 22 years ago. Despite two sequels that provided diminishing – though far from terrible – financial returns in 1997 and 2001, the franchise came roaring back to life this summer with Jurassic World, the staggering success of which proved that the world still very much holds the series dear all these years later.
With another sequel on the way for 2018, the future of the franchise is brighter than ever, but for years all us fans had to tide us over was the original trilogy. Between Jurassic Park, The Lost World and Jurassic Park III, many cast members have come and gone from the series, their characters taking part in numerous unforgettable and iconic moments that we’ll never forget even as time continues to push them further into the past.
This week marks the release of Jurassic World on Blu-ray, »

Earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly pulled back the curtain on the intense first trailer for S. Craig Zahler’s cannibal western Bone Tomahawk, pinpointing some of the unspeakable threats that await for Sheriff Franklin Hurt (Kurt Russell) and the denizens of Bright Hope, the dusty old town he’s sworn to protect.
Low and behold, Russell’s grouchy lead has a posse of supporting characters along for the ride, and today the studio has rolled out five moody, sun-kissed character posters for the drama. Tethered with simple monikers in a style not unlike Quentin Tarantino’s, the one-sheets are really designed to show the film’s leading players, who will put old quibbles aside when the find they have a common enemy: a marauding group of savage cannibals.
What unfolds is an old-fashioned rescue mission, after a number of townsfolk are kidnapped by the cannibals, leaving Russell’s law enforcer »

You wait years for a Kurt Russell-fronted Western and suddenly two arrive in quick succession. Before heading off into the wintery hills of Wyoming for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, we’ll see Russell pick up the hat and sheriff’s badge for S. Craig Zahler haunting cannibal drama Bone Tomahawk, and today brings forth the film’s maiden trailer.
Coming by way of Entertainment Weekly, our first look at Zahler’s stylish and decidedly dark drama showcases Russell as Sheriff Franklin Hunt, sworn protector of a dusty old town known as Bright Hope. Haunted by a group of vicious cannibals, the residents of the remote settlement sleep with one eye open, though when a number of settlers are kidnapped, Russell’s lead whips a search party in order to locate the missing persons – and put an end to the cannibal’s reign once and for all.

Earlier this week, IndieWire's Sam Adams interviewed me, Mo Ryan, and Tim Goodman about the increasingly strange and outdated practice of reviewing new shows based just on the pilot episode. At one point, Sam asked what was the wrongest I ever was about a show's quality based on the pilot episode. I didn't have a great answer for that one, since I have a pretty good Spidey sense about when pilots aren't to be trusted (case in point: "Studio 60"), but I did think of an answer to a related question: What show was I most wrong in predicting its commercial success based on the pilot? The answer to that one's easy, and timely, because the show in question is airing a series finale special Sunday night at 9: "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." It's not that I was predicting its outright failure or anything. I actually found the pilot interesting »

Actors, writers, producers and creators of CBS hit show “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” gathered Wednesday night for a panel to mark its series finale at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. The Q&A concluded the 2015 PaleyFest Fall TV Previews.
Devoted fan and Entertainment Weekly writer Lynette Rice moderated the event and began with a question directed to creator Anthony E. Zuiker. Rice asked how he thought to redefine the television crime genre, singing the iconic theme song, “Who were you, who who who who?”
“I was watching a show called ‘The New Detectives’ on the Discovery Channel and saw a forensic docu-drama… about a cheerleader who was killed and they pulled a long blonde hair out of the headrest,” Zuiker started.
After a voice-over explained the cause of death from studying the strand, Zuiker said, “That’s when I learned that the body really is the perfect »

The entertainment industry will face a tough set of negotiations from writers next year and in 2017, if candidate statements for the Writers Guild of America West are any indication.
Patric Verrone, best known for leading the acrimonious 100-day writers strike in 2007-08, said in his statement that the WGA needs to begin mobilizing the members now.
“Building negotiation leverage requires the board to dispel certain myths and misinformation held by writers about our lack of power, the ability of the industry to function without us and the idea that executives will punish us for aggressive conduct while others are rewarded for more collaborative behavior,” wrote Verrone, who’s seeking re-election on the guild’s board.
“We must always remember that writers are the initiators of the creative process, and we can use that position to achieve contract terms which will ultimately benefit all unions and guilds in this industry.”
