Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, Magic Mike Xxl finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike (Tatum) sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.

StreamFix: 5 Netflix options that remind you why the legends rule

18 March 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The weekend is approaching. You deserve legendary Netflix entertainment. Check out our five picks starring legendary entertainers proving why they're fantastic.  Robert Redford is a bad-ass with a ladies' Wimbledon haircut in "Three Days of the Condor" There was a magical time called 1975 in which Robert Redford was indistinguishable from Martina Navratilova. Celebrate that sacred hour with "Three Days of the Condor," the caper starring Redford as a CIA analyst who goes into hiding with a sultry Brooklyn Heights dame (Faye Dunaway) as foes zero in on him. Plenty of Oscar cred here: In addition to Dunaway, John Houseman and Cliff Robertson have key roles, and nominee Max von Sydow scares the hell out of you as an Alsatian assassin. Bill Murray makes monotony a joy in "Groundhog Day" It took me until this year to watch "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and I've decided Andie MacDowell does have a certain something. »

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Insurgent Star Miles Teller!

17 March 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Ever since I first took notice of Miles Teller back with his scene-stealing performance in Footloose, he is always a blast to watch. In fact, with films like The Spectacular Now and Whiplash, he has proven to be one of the best young actors working today in my humble opinion. So of course it's been a pleasure seeing him be a part of the impressive cast involved in Insurgent. Miles brings humor to this character, and I for one can't wait to see him as Mr. Fantastic in The Fantastic Four. It »

Dancing with the Stars Recap: Which Celebrity Brought Down the House - and Attracted Big Stars?

16 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It was a big night in the ballroom - and not just because John McClane and GI Jane were in the house! Monday's installment of Dancing with the Stars kicked off the first of what the network promised would include lots of action-packed tributes to the show's 10th anniversary. The premiere episode didn't disappoint. There were lots of contemporary tunes ("Uptown Funk," "Take Me to Church"), plenty of showstopping choreography (Derek Hough, so glad you stuck around this season!) and even quadruple hanky moments (welcome to the ballroom, Army vet and amputee Noah Galloway!). No 9s or 10s were awarded just yet, »

Julianne Hough Enjoys A Workout Sans Makeup -- See Her Fresh-Face!

27 February 2015 12:45 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Julianne Hough is fresh-faced and beautiful!  The "Footloose" star was spotted out in West Hollywood on Thursday getting in a workout and sporting a completely makeup-free mug. Clad in a tank, sneakers and running shorts, the 26-year-old looked ready for an intense fitness session. We can't get over how young the actress looks when she's not all done up. And yes, she still looked gorgeous and glowing as she enjoyed the outdoors.   Julianne does love to experiment with her look. In January, she stepped out with a bold red lip and messy waves for the Nine Zero One Melrose Place Launch Party in Los Angeles.   The star's love for makeup actually goes way back to her child ballroom dancing days. She posted a throwback photo on Thursday of her as a 10-year-old dancing star fully made up with a very young Mark Ballas!  #tbt to back in my competitive Latin »

Vanessa Hudgens, Julianne Hough land Fox's 'Grease: Live' leads

17 January 2015 4:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's "Peter Pan Live!" may not have been a smash, but Fox's previously announced "Grease: Live" is still moving forward with both a premiere date and pair of female leads. Fox announced on Saturday (January 17) that Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens will take key roles in "Grease: Live," which will be based on both the original musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, but also the 1978 feature adaptation.  "Grease: Live" will air on Fox on Sunday, January 31, 2016. So yes, that's a long time for Hough, Hudgens and the yet-to-be-announced castmembers to get prepared. Blurbs executive producer Marc Platt, "'Grease' is one of the most treasured and favored pop culture phenomenons of our time. It's fun, it's endearing and we are so excited to reimagine this iconic story with a shared entertainment event suited for today's audience." Hough will play the lead role of Sandy, virginal new girl at Rydell High. »

Just a day after NBC announced that the network's next live musical will either be The Music Man or The Wiz, Fox revealed at their Television Critics Association panel Saturday that they too will enter the live musical arena in January 2016 with a "re-imagining" of the Fifties' rock n' roll musical Grease.

Stars of ‘Unbroken,’ ‘Whiplash’ Vie for BAFTA’s Rising Star Award

7 January 2015 2:25 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — “Unbroken” star Jack O’Connell and “Whiplash” lead Miles Teller are among the nominees for BAFTA’s Rising Star Award, which were announced Wednesday.

The award, which is sponsored by Ee, recognizes actors or actresses who “have demonstrated exceptional talent, and are destined to be bright stars in the future of cinema.” The other nominees are Shailene Woodley, Margot Robbie and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

O’Connell first came to public attention in the U.K. TV series “Skins,” which he starred in from 2009. In 2013, he took the lead in British indie film “Starred Up,” playing Eric, a violent reprobate prematurely transferred to an adult prison. The role earned him a best actor nomination at last year’s British Independent Film Awards.

He also received critical acclaim for his punchy portrayal of Private Gary Hook in “’71,” for which he was nominated for a British Independent Film Award last year. The thriller, »

BAFTA Rising Star Nominees Include Jack O’Connell, Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley

7 January 2015 2:22 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

BAFTA has announced this year’s crop of nominees for its Ee Rising Star Award, with a handful of names in the mix whom many would consider already pretty firmly established. The group consists of Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jack O’Connell, Margot Robbie, Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley. That there are three women in the mix is an evolution from last year’s two — a few years ago the org was criticized for selecting an entirely male roster. This is the only BAFTA award that is voted on by the British public; it honors actors and actresses “who have demonstrated exceptional talent, and are destined to be bright stars in the future of cinema.”

Mbatha-Raw recently won the British Independent Film Award as Best Actress in Belle. Her other feature credits have included Larry Crowne, Odd Thomas and Beyond The Lights, as well as TV appearances in Spooks and Dr Who. »
