‘Chips’ Is Latest Studio Bro Comedy Crawling With Homophobic ‘Gay Panic’ Jokes

6 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Warner Bros.’ reboot of the TV series “CHiPs” is the latest mainstream Hollywood film roiling with “gay panic,” or scenes where straight characters are distressed by social or sexual situations involving Lgbtq people. The buddy comedy — set amid the culture of a Southern California police force — seems to endlessly dredge up scenarios where men are confronted with the naked bodies, perceived masculinity and potential desire for other men. Dax Shepard and Michael Pena star as motorcycle cop partners with conflicting personalities: Shepard’s Jon Baker is a sensitive, lean-muscled former pro biker looking for a new career. Pena’s Frank “Ponch” Poncherello is a hyper-masculine, »

6 hours ago | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_yjtzqmqf"]] Movie star and UCLA basketball fan Michael Pena has a question for Lavar Ball ... and he's using TMZ Sports to ask. Pena was out in NYC promoting his new movie, "CHiPs," when we talked to him about the Ncaa tourney, and specifically his UCLA Bruins who are rollin' right now. Any conversation about UCLA, of course, turns to Lonzo Ball and his father, Lavar ... the man who just keeps making headlines with his outrageous statements. »

'Beauty and the Beast' to Repeat at #1 Over 'Power Rangers', 'Life' and 'CHiPs'

9 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

As has been the case over the last three weekends, this weekend is looking to outperform last year and, once again, by a significant margin. The big story, of course, is Disney's Beauty and the Beast as it continues to blow the doors off, becoming one of the fastest films to top $200 million at the domestic box office and, by the end of this weekend, will have topped $300 million in just ten days of release. In addition to Beauty and the Beast's second weekend, three new wide releases make their debut including Lionsgate's Power Rangers, Sony's R-rated sci-fi Life and WB's R-rated comedy CHiPs, all of which will have varying degrees of success as the top twelve should top a combined $180 million, making it the second largest weekend of the year. As of Wednesday, Disney's Beauty and the Beast has brought in $217.6 million domestically and another $244.3 million internationally. This »

Why Kristen Bell Didn’t Pump Breast Milk ‘for a Full Day’ While Filming CHiPs: ‘It Was My Physical Sacrifice’

12 hours ago | | See recent news »

Kristen Bell may not have performed death-defying stunts for her new role in husband Dax Shepard‘s movie CHiPs — as his character’s wife, fittingly — but she did commit to the part in one very physical way.

“I was like, ‘My craft deserves it. I gotta do it. I’m a serious actor,’ ” Bell told Seth Meyers Wednesday evening. “I was breastfeeding at the time. I wanted my character to have an aggressive boob job, like it’s the only thing you can think about when you see someone.”

“So I didn’t pump for a full day,” explains the Veronica Mars alum, »

‘Chips’ Review: Dax Shepard’s 1970’s TV Reboot Is Offensive and Awful

13 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s hard to pinpoint when Dax Shepard’s “Chips” takes a sharp turn into indefensibly racist humor, but one place to start would be a passing reference to Michael Peña as “the little brown one.” It’s not the only cringe-worthy moment.

It may be unfair to pigeonhole Shepard as endorsing ugly stereotypes, even if he did write, produce, and direct a movie that derives 90 percent of its humor from gay jokes, race jokes, and punchlines about attractiveness that basically amount to a beta version of the pre-Facebook website “Hot or Not.” But they’re all there, in this overblown and completely baffling adaptation of a 1970’s TV series that literally nobody asked for.

Dax Shepard Makes Sure Kristen Bell Is the No. 1 Suspect If He's Ever Murdered

13 hours ago | | See recent Popsugar news »

Dax Shepard is taking all sorts of steps to secure his future (if he makes it there). After the CHiPs actor got bumped from the Wednesday spot on Late Night With Seth Meyers in favor of a much bigger star (his wife, Kristen Bell), the actress used her time on the show to talk about the couple's interesting dynamic. While chatting with Seth about her recent interview with Dateline's Keith Morrison, Kristen revealed that she actually really needed to talk to him because of something suspicious Dax did on her phone. "My husband googled from my phone, as a prank, 'How do I get away with murdering my husband?'" Seth then asked, "What's the prank though?" to which she responded, "That I'm on some watch list I guess." She then said she asked Keith how much trouble she might be in, and he broke the news to her: "quite a bit. »

Dax Shepard Says Therapy Is the Key to His Marriage With Kristen Bell

22 March 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Dax Shepard isn't afraid to admit that sometimes he and Kristen Bell need a little help.

During an interview on Good Morning America on Wednesday, the 42-year-old actor revealed the key to his nearly decade-long relationship with Bell: therapy.

Exclusive: Kristen Bell Interviews Dax Shepard Who Gushes Over Her: ‘You Are on a Cellular Level Likeable’

"We went to therapy early on to learn what our pattern of arguing was and where we needed to stop that," Shepard confessed. "It's great too, because you go to the therapist and he listens, you talk for about 30 seconds, and he's like, 'I got it.'"

"'You used to be a scumbag, right Dax? You always feel like you're in trouble? Okay, great,'" he went on, acting out the pair's therapy sessions. "'So when you phrase things like this, he thinks he's in trouble, but he's not in trouble. He doesn't deserve to feel like he's in trouble, because »

Box Office: ‘Power Rangers’ No Match for ‘Beauty and the Beast’

22 March 2017 2:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has big ambitions for “Power Rangers,” its reboot of the popular 1990’s television show about a group of teenage warriors. A year before the movie even hit theaters, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer predicted that there could be as many as seven Mighty Morphin’ adventures, and producer Haim Saban recently said that the filmmakers have a “six story arc” all sketched out for the youthful heroes.

Now, all the movie has to do is be a hit, preferably of the blockbuster variety. This weekend, Lionsgate will find out if it picked the right slice of nostalgia to dust off. “Power Rangers” will open across 3,693 North American locations, where it is expected to pull in more than $30 million. That’s a respectable result, but given its $100 million budget and the millions spent on hawking and distributing the film, “Power Rangers” will have to be a big hit globally in order to justify more sequels. »

Michael Pena confirms his return for Ant-Man and the Wasp

22 March 2017 2:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actor Michael Pena has confirmed that he will be returning to the McU for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Stealing plenty a scene during the first Ant-Man film back in 2015, actor Michael Pena, after a bit of confusion, has confirmed he will indeed be returning to the role of Luis for the sequel.

Pena initially seemed unsure about whether he would be taking up the role again during a recent interview with Collider, saying, “No, No. I haven’t gotten the phone call yet. I don’t know if I’m gonna get the phone call. Who knows?”

However, he has now clarified that he will be back in the mix during a red carpet Lrm interview for his latest movie Chips: “So, I’m doing Extinction next, that’s a Universal movie. And then I’m doing Ant-Man Part 2”.

Dax Shepard Reveals the Secret to His Decade-Long Romance With Kristen Bell

22 March 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Dax Shepard has been hamming it up on his press tour for CHiPs all month long. During a stop on Good Morning America on Wednesday, Dax revealed the secret to his decade-long romance with wife Kristen Bell, who also stars in the film. "We went to therapy early on to learn what our pattern of arguing was and where we needed to stop that. It's great too, because you go to the therapist and he listens to you talk for about 30 seconds and then he's like, 'I got it.'" He also stated that couples often seek counseling when it's too late, adding, "Most people wait until the thing is exploding before they see a professional. I thought maybe an ounce of prevention this go-around would be advisable." Dax and Kristen tied the knot at a Beverly Hills courthouse in October 2013 and are parents to daughters Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 2. The »

Ant-Man And The Wasp Will Herald The Return Of Michael Peña’s Fast-Talking Luis After All

22 March 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this week, it was reported that CHIPs star Michael Peña had been left in the dark about Ant-Man and the Wasp, thereby casting doubt on whether his fast-talking Luis will have a role to play in Marvel’s 2018 sequel.

Considering that Pena’s cunning crook was arguably one of, if not the best supporting character in Peyton Reed’s hit original, Marvel fans were aghast. But thankfully, Peña has now walked back his comments regarding Ant-Man 2 to confirm that Luis will return after all. Whether the actor’s original statement was simply a faux pas or a breakdown in communication is anyone’s guess, but while chatting to Lrm (via Screen Rant) about his upcoming role in the R-rated CHIPs reboot, Michael Peña put any and all rumors to bed.

Next on Peña’s plate is the alien invasion movie Extinction, which is coming by way of Universal »

22 March 2017 5:15 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kristen Bell is a bigger star than Dax least according to Seth Meyers. Shepard appeared on NBC's Late Night Tuesday, where Meyers praised the star of CHiPs for being so flexible with the show's recent scheduling change. "You were supposed to be on the show Wednesday and you made it here today," Meyers said. "I wanted to thank you for that." "I was supposed to be on Wednesday and then I got a call from my publicist, who said, 'They got a bigger guest, so you got bumped to Tuesday. Can you now fly out?'

Exclusive: 'Parenthood's' Mae Whitman and Dax Shepard Dish on Revival Chances and 'This Is Us' Comparisons

21 March 2017 4:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

This Is Us has been widely considered the heir apparent to Parenthood, the heart-wrenching family drama that ended more than two years ago -- and with good reason! Both shows tug at your heartstrings, make you reach for those tissues and by the end of each episode, have you hugging your loved ones.

Parenthood stars Mae Whitman and Dax Shepard, who played Amber Holt and Crosby Braverman respectively, spoke with Et about the frequent comparisons between their beloved series and television’s newest hit.

“I’ve only seen the first episode,” Whitman admitted to Et at the CHiPs premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday of This Is Us. “But the device of the [multiple time periods] is amazing and I feel like we’re all one big family. It’s like another generation of us.”

Kristen Bell Reveals When She Thinks Dax Shepard Is Sexiest

21 March 2017 1:46 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard know how to keep things spicy in the bedroom, but it involves actions outside of their home. E! News caught up with the couple at the CHiPs premiere in Los Angeles Monday where they both sounded off on how they keep the heat burning in their marriage. "She only thinks I'm sexy when I over-tip people," Shepard revealed. "That seems to be the thing that makes her horniest, so I do that frequently." By frequently, Shepard might have meant seldom. "I'm older so I only get aroused about once every six months," Shepard joked. "It's just physiology, so when that happens, that bi-annual arousal, I tip like a mother." Bell echoed Shepard's »

Kristen Bell's First Fight With Dax Shepard Could Have Ended in Disaster

21 March 2017 12:38 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have never been shy about opening up about their romance, and we love them for it. While many celebrity couples appear to be perfect, the parents of daughters Lincoln and Delta aren't afraid to say their union, well, takes a lot of f*cking work. The two revealed that this became evident when they had their first big fight shortly after they started dating, which happened during a road trip they were taking together on a motorcycle. "We were fighting about the playlist, and I got so mad at him at one point that I refused to hold onto him," she told People at the premiere of their film CHiPs on Monday. "So I was on the back and just held onto the [bike] because I didn't want to touch him." While it's unclear whether or not the bike was actually in motion when this went down, »
