True Blood Recap: The Waiting Game

27 July 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Waiting sucks” took on a whole new meaning during Sunday’s True Blood, as Sookie was forced to sweat out the results of her Hep-v blood test. Is she responsible for inadvertently sentencing Bill to death?

Sadly, the answer is yes; after the midnight assault on Fangtasia, when those H-Vamps exploded all over Sookie, she contracted the Hep-v virus and passed it along to Bill during their feedings. Even though it was obvious her test results would come back positive, it was heartbreaking watching Sookie wait for the news, »

Eric and Pam track down Sarah Newlin and Jessica catches James cheating on her with Lafayette in True Blood’s “Return to Oz.”

After last week’s war at Fangtasia, things are setting down in Bon Temps.

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar nomination for Planet of the Apes

17 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's the 1969 Academy Awards, and Walter Matthau and a tuxedo-clad chimp present John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for his work on Planet of the Apes. Viewed in retrospect it's one of the more surreal presentations in the ceremony's history, but this was something of a landmark event for the industry. It was only the second time the Academy had dished out a prize to make-up artists (William J Tuttle won four years earlier for 7 Faces of Dr Lao), and it highlighted the growing importance of Hollywood's backstage creative artists.

Fast-forward 45 years and prosthetics are giving way to digital pixels - for characters that require a complexity of movement and expression, performance capture technology gives a director the scope to execute their vision by marrying an actor's performance with visual effects. In its basic form, the actor will strap on a bodysuit that's wired up to a computer. All their »

15 July 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Don’t women already have enough to think about in their lives?

Based off the short film “Piece A’ Cake,” “Audrey is a funny female-drive comedy that takes us in real-time over an hour and half of a young woman’s day as she waits and waits and waits in a restaurant for a man to arrive for their critical third date. As time ticks away and Gene is nowhere to be found, Audrey is swept up through her life as her insecurities and inner demons wreak havoc on her. Forced to face her deepest fears by circumstance — both real and hilariously unreal —Audrey finds the strength and courage she never imagined she had.

First Look at Pixar's 'Lava', New Short Film Coming in 2015

11 July 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Pixar is taking the year off, but next year they'll return with Inside Out, the new film from Pete Docter (Up), and with it comes a new Pixar, animated short film titled Lava with a lead character named Uku and yeah, that lead character is a volcano. Just above is the first look at Uku (via Los Angeles Times) and it sounds like it isn't straying too far from a common Pixar theme, which is the love story between two rather unique characters, whether it be umbrellas or robots, this time its Uku and fellow volcano, Lele. Directed by James Ford Murphy, the seven-minute short is set to premiere Monday at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan. The musical love story features a song titled "Lava", which Murphy wrote after learning to play the ukele in order to pitch the project. The song in the film will be performed »

Check out the brand new poster for This Is Where I Leave You.

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens.

Jk Rowling Got Bored, Read An Excerpt From Her 'Where Are They Now' Harry Potter Story

8 July 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today is a day that will go down in Harry Potter fandom history! Our children's children's children will speak in hushed tones of where they were on July 8th, 2014 when our Lady Rowling deigned to bestow upon the masses a new Harry Potter story. Okay, okay. Everyone calm down. I Am Totally Calm. As the Quidditch World Cup on Pottermore draws to the final match, 'The Daily Prophet' received a highly detailed gossip report from Rita Skeeter because of course they did. In it she catalogues — with high speculation towards the negative and still talking smack about Ginny — what the likes of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the rest have been up to as Dumbledore's Army ascends the VIP boxes to watch the final bout in a rare public appearance. Maybe they would show up at more public events if certain members of the media weren't such vicious harpies...just sayin'. »

Andy Serkis reprises this acclaimed performance as hyper-intelligent primate Caesar in the highly anticipated sequel to last summer's franchise relaunch Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which is scheduled for release this summer. A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier.

Sony Classical is pleased to announce the release of the original motion picture soundtrack of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, composed by the Academy Award®-winning Michael Giacchino (Ratatouille, Up, The Incredibles).

Summer sitcom rewind: 'Cheers' - 'Thanksgiving Orphans'

2 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're continuing this periodic summer project where we revisit classic sitcom episode. This week, we're returning to the 1980s for the season 5 "Cheers" episode "Thanksgiving Orphans," which you can find on Netflix, coming up just as soon as we're moving into the earth tones... The short version of "Cheers": Sam Malone (Ted Danson) is a former relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, and a recovering alcoholic who bought a bar during one of his drunker periods, then kept it in sobriety. At the time of this episode, the Cheers staff includes rookie bartender Woody (Woody Harrelson), a naive kid from Hanover, Indiana; single mom waitress Carla Tortelli (Rhea Perlman), as abrasive as she is fertile; and waitress Diane Chambers (Shelley Long), a pretentious aging graduate student who has been Sam's on-again, off-again love interest. Among the regular customers: unemployed accountant and one-liner machine Norm Peterson (George Wendt), whose »

Pixar Was Almost Ruined Before It Ever Made a Movie

1 July 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Can you imagine a moviegoing world without the films from Pixar? No "Toy Story," no "Monsters, Inc.," no "Finding Nemo," no "Cars," no "Up"? The upcoming, fantastic-looking "Inside Out" never happening? According to a new book by Pixar co-founder Ed Catmull, that unthinkable scenario was almost a reality.

In his management book "Creativity, Inc.," Catmull revealed that back in 1985, the animation start-up was almost purchased by General Motors, which wanted to buy the company to help develop and design new automobiles. At the time, Pixar wasn't known for its animation -- "Toy Story," the world's first feature-length animated movie, was still 10 years off -- but more for its technology as the computer division of Lucasfilm.

Gm had planned to partner with electronics giant Philips to co-purchase Pixar for $15 million, plus an additional $15 million in seed money. Per

Sookie, Jason, Alcide, Andy and Sam took a road trip to learn more about the Hep-v vampires while Arlene struggled for a way out of Fangtasia in True Blood's "I Found You."

True Blood "I Found You" Recap

The episode began with Jason (Ryan Kwanten) having a sexy dream about vampire Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) – a side effect of having drunk Eric’s blood last season. Just as things start getting truly steamy, Jason wakes up with a jolt in a church.

Outside the church, Sookie (Anna Paquin) suggests to Andy (Chris Bauer) that they track where the Hep-v infected vamps came from by investigating the dead girl Sookie stumbled upon in the woods the other night. Andy, desperate for a lead to find Holly (Lauren Bowles), agrees, and tells Sookie and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) to meet him at the station. As for everybody else, Sam (Sam Trammell) encourages them »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »
