The Spectre song currently has double the combined sales of its closest competitor, Justin Bieber's 'What Do You Mean?'.
To date none of the previous bond themes have claimed the number one spot in the UK, with Adele's 'Skyfall' and Duran Duran's 'A View To A Kill' narrowly missing the position and peaking at number two.
Meanwhile R City and Adam Levine's 'Locked Away' is at three, Sigala's 'Easy Love' slips two places to four and The Weeknd's 'Can't Feel My Face' completes the Top 5.

Law & Order: Svu‘s 17th season kicks off Wednesday with a two-hour premiere, a nod to HBO’s The Jinx and executive producer Warren Leight‘s fifth year at the head of the seemingly unstoppable crime drama.
“When I came on, it was after [executive producer] Neal Baer was leaving and Chris Meloni was leaving, so everybody looked at me like, ‘Here’s the guy they got to board the Titanic after the iceberg hit,'” he says, chuckling. “I’m glad that we’ve stayed afloat for five more years.”
In advance of the series’ return (9/8c, NBC), we talked with Leight about Olivia’s aspirations, »
Question, tease, cajole and wheedle Nashville showrunner Dee Johnson all you like: She isn’t giving up anything regarding who lives or dies — Deacon or Beverly?! — in the resolution to the drama’s season-ending cliffhanger.
“I can’t do it!” she says, laughing. “I’ll just tell you that Rayna’s world will never be the same.”
Fortunately, Johnson can answer several other burning questions we have in advance of the ABC series’ Sept. 23 return (10/9c). Will Juliette make up with Avery (and Rayna)? Will Will regret his bold declaration at last season’s press conference? Will Scarlett and Gunnar »
Three friends find themselves in possession of narcotics in a lightly satirical Risky Business-style caper
Credit is due to writer/director Rick Famuyiwa (who shared an NAACP Image award with Michael Genet for their Talk to Me script) for going against the grain with this comedic tale of three friends from a tough La neighbourhood whose unfashionable interests include filling in college applications, playing in a punky guitar band and listening to shiny 90s beats or, as the film puts it, “shit white people like”.
A contrived quirk of fate involving a shootout and a bag of drugs sets our antiheroes on a Risky Business-lite venture into the underworld, but it’s their doggedly alternative sensibilities that really tickle Famuyiwa’s fancy. Shameik Moore, Kiersey Clemons and Tony Revolori (last seen wearing a bellboy uniform in The Grand Budapest Hotel) make for divertingly offbeat company, while the film »

Celine Dion opened up to USA Today this week about the emotional conversations she's had with her husband, René Angélil, who's been battling throat cancer. The couple has been married since 1994, and they have three sons together. This past year has been a difficult one, and after a year-long hiatus, Celine said she wasn't sure she wanted to return to Las Vegas, saying, "Don't get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities." She added, "All my grieving, it was during this last year. I think I've got this. For now. When it hits me, it's going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we're fine. I'll take care of our kids. You'll watch us from another spot." The singer will return to Vegas for a run that kicks off on Aug. 27, and she revealed that while they've asked doctors how much »

"Listen to me, Marlon...This is one part of yourself speaking to another part of yourself. Listen to the sound of my voice and trust me. You know I have your interests at heart. Just relax, relax, relax. I'm going to help you change in a way that will make you feel happier, more useful...I want you to accept what I say as true. What I tell you here and now is true."
- Marlon Brando, self-hypnosis tape, 1996
By Alex Simon
In addition to being widely regarded as the greatest film actor of all-time, Marlon Brando, who died in 2004, remains one of popular culture's great enigmas. A man who fiercely guarded his privacy and shunned the spotlight whenever he could, Brando purchased an island in the South Pacific, a place so remote and removed from the western world and its media. It was »

“It’s my last day today, so it’s all a bit weird.”
“It was quite extraordinary,” he says via phone from South Africa, where the series shoots. “I got to play some really cool stuff as an actor, really interesting stuff, stuff that you’re not normally asked to do… It was a gas.”

Jon Hamm was on "The Daily Show" last night to promote "Minions"-- you can see a clip from the movie in his interview video below -- and the "Mad Men" alum joked that he was going to get in so much trouble with Universal after his conversation with Jon Stewart.
The "Despicable Me" spinoff opens July 10, and Jon Stewart started by saying he hoped the movie was about a quorum of Jewish men and maybe they just misspelled "Minyan." But he said kids really love Minions, including his own kids, joking that they are 18 and 19 and smoke a lot of dope. More seriously, Stewart said not everything can capture his kids' attention like this, and the Jons discussed the universal appeal of the characters for both children and adults.

As we conclude our conversation, James Hawkinson correctly notes that HitFix doesn't do many interviews with cinematographers. While my departing colleague Kris Tapley actually has done a spectacular job interviewing big screen DPs for the site, Hawkinson is almost certainly the first TV cinematographer I've spoken with. If you're going to talk to one TV cinematographer, though, it's hard to think of a better candidate than Hawkinson, who has shot NBC's "Hannibal" since its pilot. No matter what Emmy voters may think, "Hannibal" is currently in its third season as one of the most breathtaking visual spectacles on TV. It's a world of richly saturated colors, subtle gradations of darkness, teasing tricks of focus and the ability to get equal beauty out of a flayed body, a tower of corpses or a dinner composed of succulent preparations of "human" flesh. There's really nothing close on TV, like a little weekly »

Warning: The following story contains spoilers from Outlander‘s Season 1 finale.
The credits may have rolled on Outlander‘s brutal Season 1 finale, but the aftershock of the violence against Jamie Fraser “definitely carries forward,” series creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore says.
If you missed the episode, Moore is referring to Jamie’s repeated rape and emotional torture at the hands of Black Jack Randall, who was later taken out of the picture by Murtagh’s brilliant plan and a herd of cattle. (Full recap here.)

Graham Norton has admitted that he pinches himself when he thinks about his chat show success.
Norton, who will host the BAFTA Television Awards on Sunday (May 10), explained that he still remembers the first time he realised he wanted to present a chat show.
"I just remember all those years ago when I stood in for Jack Docherty on Channel 5, and I was behind the desk doing a thing, and it was just the weirdest thing - it was like, 'Oh my God, I've found my dream job but it's somebody else's'," he said.
"So then when I got my own show on Channel 4, it was the first time I really cared about something. I didn't want to mess it up. And I pinch myself that all these years later I am still doing that job - I've been lucky enough to weather the various dips and troughs."
Even the best witch’s spells can’t last forever.
In Sunday’s Outlander, Lotte Verbeek‘s alter ego found herself facing near-certain death for practicing witchcraft. It was an accusation she’d charmed her way out of for years, but when an angry mob made it clear that her days of summoning and potions were over, she did the 18th-century Scotland version of taking one for the team.
“That move she makes makes her utterly vulnerable,” Verbeek tells TVLine. “It really does. It’s a completely different side of Geillis… than we see at first when she’s being »

Sometimes it seems like I spend a disproportionate amount of my life talking with actors about the differences between single-cam and multi-cam comedies. Here's another of those interviews. TBS and Sony Pictures TV's "Your Family or Mine" returns star Kyle Howard to the network and studio behind "My Boys," which had a well-regarded four-season run (but somehow aired only 49 episodes, which surprised me a little) ending in 2010. In November, I sat down with Howard on the "Your Family or Mine" set to talk about whether he feels any continuity between his earlier sitcom and the new one -- this was before a new creative administration took over at TBS -- and how the difference between single-cam and multi-cam comedies impact him. Howard agreed with co-star Kat Foster that the two leads have a very good chemistry and that that kind of chemistry is both rare and lucky. He also explains »

Hot mamas out on the town! Snooki and JWoww flaunted their killer post-baby bods on their way to see the weekly drag show at The Abbey in Los Angeles on Monday -- and we have to say, these BFFs have never looked better. The pint-sized mother-of-two went glam in a black leather jacket, leather shorts and polka-dot tights, as her reality TV pal sported a sexy black crop top with a white lace jacket, figure-hugging leggings and thigh-high boots. It's hard to believe these ladies gave birth less than a year ago! Jenni bounced back quickly after giving birth to daughter Meilani in November, but she did tell toofab's Rachel Hoffman that she recently got a boob job to boost her bust. In fact, she told us that she wouldn't mind if her little one wanted to get work done when she's older either! "I want my daughter to have self confidence. »

There comes a moment in the premiere episode of Younger, TV Land’s newest comedy, when the 40-year-old character played by Bunheads alum Sutton Foster is mocked by two twenty-somethings in a locker room for — how shall we put this? — being a less-than-diligent tender of her lady garden.
“It was hilarious to shoot it,” Foster tells TVLine. “Obviously, we’re on TV Land and you can’t show anything, but I had to, like, take off my panties.” She laughs. “I was like, ‘What am I doing?’ [The cameras are] angling on me as I’m taking off my panties and I thought, »

Whether or not you happened to be a fan, it's hard to deny that "Damages" was, in many ways, ahead of its time. "Damages" was intensely serialized within seasons, but then each season was largely a reboot, bringing in a handful of big name supporting actors to play along with Glenn Close and Rose Byrne. FX chief John Landgraf admitted that it was a hard show for the network to handle and maintain, because viewers couldn't jump in midway through a season and other viewers would store up three or four or 13 episodes and then plow through them well after the Nielsen measuring windows circa 2009 were closed. In effect, "Damages" was a show designed for binge-viewing and anthology storytelling at a time when being a binge-favorite would get you cancelled by FX and shuffled off to DirecTV. [FX was also a producer on "Damages," which incentivized them to keep the show going in some form, even if it wasn't working in the landscape of that moment.] "Damages" creators Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman didn't know it at the time, »
