VideosVampire Diaries Series Finale Promo: See Damon and Elena’s Epic Reunion
Cade, of course, played the “John Tucker” role, targeted by Damon, Stefan and Bonnie — three of his former protégés looking to get even. And just like Brittany Snow’s character, Stefan actually thought he could accomplish something by going rogue, challenging Cade all on his own. (Spoiler alert: He was *ahem* dead wrong.)
After getting the upper hand on Stefan, Cade offered Damon a chilling ultimatum: Which soul would he save, »

On Friday in Park City, the bidding wars opened for business. Fox Searchlight co-president Nancy Utley began and ended her day at the Eccles Theatre, where the Sundance premieres culminated with the big acquisition title, “The Big Sick,” directed by Michael Showalter and produced by Judd Apatow. Appetites remain high for Sundance titles, but last year proved to be a teachable moment for indie distribution: There’s a big difference between being able to compete for a title, and successfully gauging what will work in the marketplace.
“The marketplace is always changing, but now it is changing more rapidly, both on the production and consumer side,” said Searchlight co-president Stephen Gilula. “The bar for theatrical viability keeps going up. While we are talking about other models, Searchlight is still a global, theatrically driven company, trying to make money on each individual title. We haven’t changed our acquisition calculus, but »

Lady Gaga promises a blowout performance when she hits the Pepsi halftime show stage at Super Bowl Li.
"It will be special, because, you know, I've been planning this since I was four," Gaga exclaims in a behind-the-scenes look at how she's preparing for the big day. "So, I know exactly what I'm going to do."
"For me, it's about giving to the fans and bringing people together that wouldn't normally come together," Gaga adds of her upcoming Super Bowl Sunday performance. "The thing is, it's such a big world stage in terms of how many people see it, and it's been done so many times. I think the challenge is to look at it and say, 'Ok, what can I do differently? How can I elevate certain little things here and there, and also make it about the music?'"

After years directing animated movies for Blue Sky Films--the original Ice Age, Robots and Epic were three of his movies--Chris Wedge decided to follow the route of many animation directors before him and do a live action movie.
Along came Monster Trucks, possibly one of the simplest high concept premises ever turned into a film, and Wedge somehow found a way to use that idea to put a twist on the “boy and his car” movie that was done so well in Michael Bay’s original Transformers movie.
It stars Lucas Till (MacGyver) as Tripp, an outsider in his North Dakota town, who spends his time at the garage working on a beat-up pick-up truck that just needs an engine. When an explosion at a nearby oil drilling site unleashes a creature that lives under the earth, its quest for life-sustaining oil leads it to Tripp’s garage and »

MaryAnn’s quick take… What if “monster trucks” actually meant — wait for it — that there were monsters in the trucks? From an idea by a four-year-old (really), and it shows. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
What if “monster trucks” actually meant — wait for it — that there were monsters in the trucks? Cute monsters, of course. Nice monsters. (Duh! Nobody likes bad monsters.) The kind of monsters that a boy could be friends with and drive around with and do daring deeds with. Wouldn’t that be cool?
A monster in a truck is the least ridiculous thing amidst a story that is often illogical and morally hugely problematic.
