2 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Just in time for Halloween, I Know What You Did Last Summer turned 20. Directed by Jim Gillespie, the classic slasher movie was a big break for many stars. For instance, Johnny Galecki, who played Max Neurick in the film, went on to star as Leonard Hofstadter in the hit series The Big Bang Theory, and Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Helen Shivers, went on to play Buffy Summers in the popular TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was also a big film for stars Ryan Phillippe, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. Besides launching some of these stars' careers, the movie sparked a bit of romance. Prinze, who played Ray Bronson, ended up marrying Gellar in 2002. Although the two didn't play »

Justice League Green Lantern Cameo Spoiled by Big Bang Theory?

2 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Justice League hits theaters in exactly a month and, while the trailers have shown us quite a bit of action, it's clear that the movie is going to feature a lot of surprises. That's great, considering that so many trailers tend to ruin movies these days. However, it looks like a pretty major Justice League cameo may have just been ruined by The Big Bang Theory, of all things.

The Big Bang Theory is currently holding a contest branded as the Big Bang Justice League Geekstakes, which is actually well worth entering, if you're a Justice League fan. The prizes include $500 a day, a hometown screening of Justice League for 100 friends, and a trip for two to the Justice League premiere. So far so good. It's after you enter the contest where things get interesting. Those who enter are asked to spin a wheel to unlock a Justice League-themed »

Did CBS Just Spoil Green Lantern’s Cameo In Justice League?

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“No protectors here. No Lanterns. No Kryptonian. This world will fall, like all the others.”

If Steppenwolf’s dreary threat of world domination is anything to go by, Hal Jordan won’t feature in Justice League whatsoever, leaving Batman and the rest of the gang – Superman included – to cancel the impending apocalypse on their own. But rumors continue to swirl that Green Lantern will end up playing a part in the Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon tentpole after all.

Of course, there’s still been nothing to confirm that we’ll be seeing the beloved character show up, but it seems that new evidence is surfacing on a weekly basis all pointing to there being seven heroes on the team, and given that we know Warner Bros. has definite plans to introduce Green Lantern into the Dceu, and that he has a long history with the League in the comics, it »

Mayim Bialik Clarifies Comments About Sexual Assault After Being Accused of Victim Blaming

16 October 2017 10:28 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Mayim Bialik insists that it was "absolutely not" her intention in a New York Times op-ed about the Harvey Weinstein scandal to place blame on any woman or man that has been a victim of sexual assault.

The Big Bang Theory star received some backlash after noting that she's careful about her clothing choices and behavior when on set in an effort to avoid unwanted advances. 

“I still make choices every day as a 41-year-old actress that I think of as self-protecting and wise,” she wrote. “I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with. I dress modestly. I don’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy.”

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: Sarek in Trouble, the Tardigrade’s Untold Starfleet Membership, and More Scoop From ‘After Trek’

16 October 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 1, Episode 5, titled “Choose Your Pain.”]

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Sarek (James Frain) on “Star Trek: Discovery,” and a sneak peek that played during after show “After Trek” finally gave fans a glimpse of the Vulcan ambassador. Sadly, it was not a very encouraging vision.

In a clip for Episode 6, Burnham is in the mess hall when she starts to feel funny. Everything gets wavy, and then she clutches her side and collapses. At that moment we see that Sarek has also similarly collapsed, and it’s his link with Burnham that causes her mysterious reaction. As one viewer pointed out, this could be Sarek having a heart attack since Vulcans’ hearts are around where human livers are. What could have triggered this is unknown for now, but since most Vulcans are vegetarian, it’s doubtful cholesterol has anything to do with it. Perhaps another stressor is the culprit?

13 October 2017 4:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Game of Thrones” has remained a powerful force in on-demand viewership, weeks and months after Season 7 ended. But streaks are meant to be broken: According to the most recent weekly report from Xfinity, NBC’s “This Is Us” has taken over as the new most-viewed on-demand series on the service.
