56 minutes ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Fans of Parks and Recreation have already seen (and appreciated) Chris Pratt's musical side, but this week, the actor showed off his talents on Instagram with a must-see video. The Jurassic World star is busy making the press rounds for his new blockbuster, and after spending some time in China, he made his way to England this week, where he stopped by the BBC and played a piano donated by Elton John. He shared a video of his mini performance, which you can watch below, and he wrote, "I also got to play this piano donated by Sir Elton John. #JurassicWorldGlobalPressTour #JurassicWorld #RocketMan #YesSirEltonJohn." The handsome star's cute post comes just a few days after he took to Facebook to preemptively apologize for anything he might say during the press tour that might offend someone. In a lengthy post, he wrote, "I hope you understand it was never my »

I mean I really do. And I for one am not afraid to admit it. I love Beijing. Ok?! There. I said it. I ❤Bj I feel so much »

17 Chris Pratt Pictures That'll Make You Weak in the Knees

22 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's an exciting time for Chris Pratt, who dominated headlines thanks to his starring role in Guardians of the Galaxy last year, and who's now making the press rounds to promote Jurassic World. For more than a decade he's been winning over fans with his charm and good looks - seriously, could Chris be more lovable? And lately, between hot magazine covers and a series of handsome red carpet appearances, he's had quite a few heartthrob moments. Beyond his good looks, Chris is both hilarious and sweet, too, and he's shown off his awesome sense of humor in more ways than one. The Parks and Recreation star cracked up fans when he adorably fumbled during his SNL monologue, when he shared his first cheesy headshot picture, and when he expertly rapped "Forgot About Dre." As if you needed any more convincing as to why Chris Pratt is such a swoon-worthy star, »

New Jurassic World Clip Introduces Chris Pratt: The Raptor Whisperer

23 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures has released a new clip from Jurassic World, and it’s quite revelatory in regards to how Chris Pratt’s character fits into the picture. The Parks and Recreation actor plays a researcher named Owen Grady in the sequel, which takes place at a fully functional Jurassic Park. Grady appears to be a friendly zookeeper of sorts when it comes to the various dinosaurs, and as we can see in this clip, he has a special relationship with the dangerous velociraptors. But the highlight of the clip for me personally is getting a taste of Michael Giacchino’s score for the film, which certainly sounds like it’s drawing on John Williams’ previous work. By now we’ve seen enough of Jurassic World to have a pretty solid idea of what we’re in for. It’s a little silly looking, but then again I’m not convinced »

Rashida Jones Rips Cannes High Heels Rule: ‘A Snobbery Thing … Sexist’ (Video)

27 May 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Rashida Jones took a strong stance Tuesday evening on Comedy Central’s “Nightly Show” against a Cannes Film Festival rule that requires women to wear high heels on the red carpet, calling it “a snobbery thing” and “sexist.” Overseas at the French film fest, women wearing flats were turned away from walking the Cannes carpet — including a woman who practically had an amputated foot, Larry Wilmore informed his 11:30 p.m. crowd. The comedian and former “Daily Show” contributor then took the controversy to his “Nightly Show” panel, which included the “Parks and Rec” star. “It’s part of a larger problem, »

Top 5 TV Comedies to Binge Watch When Times are Tough

22 May 2015 8:05 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Life gets hard, that is just a fact (unless you’re a cat, then you pretty much sleep 14 hours a day while getting pets and life is good.) Regardless, we all have those times when you are having a bad day, week, month, or even year. If you are like me, sometimes you need a distraction that will take your mind off those pesky feelings for a little while and remind you that is okay and even possible to laugh.

These are the best shows to watch when you are feeling down and out! As someone who is utilizing this very method right now, I can verify every one of these shows is working to get me through my hard times.

There are a lot of things that make this show great. It is witty, hilarious, clever, and all together one of the most entertaining shows in existence. Tina Fey »

Amy Schumer Plots Mother-Daughter Vacation Comedy At Fox

22 May 2015 11:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Trainwreck seemingly poised to become the breakout comedy of the summer, Amy Schumer is basking in a whole lot of attention from major studios right now. The Inside Amy Schumer comedienne has just signed on to co-write and star in a mother-daughter comedy for 20th Century Fox, with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig producing.

No actress is attached to take on the other lead role yet, but Schumer will portray a daughter whose vacation abroad with her mother takes a drastic turn. The pic is being described as an action-comedy in the vein of the Feig-directed buddy cop comedy, The Heat.

Interestingly, Schumer is penning the script with real-life sister Kim Caramele, who has previously written episodes of Inside Amy Schumer. They’ll be revising an earlier draft by Katie Dippold in order to put the comedy in Schumer’s distinctly bawdy, culturally savvy voice. Dippold, who also wrote episodes »

Chris Pratt Proves He Knows Every Lyric to Taylor Swift's "White Horse," Feeds Bugs to Strangers' Kids

22 May 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Chris Pratt really is just like us. Andy Dwyer-turned-Star Lord can really do no wrong and somehow becomes even more attractive when you find out he's a Taylor Swift fan. And not only is he a fan, he also happens to know many, many of her lyrics. The Parks and Recreation alum, who was best known for his idiotic-but-quirky personality, has one secret: his "brain helmet" (fans should pick up on the reference) is very full words from some of T.Swift's best songs. In an interview with Elle magazine, which took place during one of Pratt's godly (we assume) photo shoots, the Jurassic World star put on his best lip-syncing performance to Swift's "White Horse."

Jurassic World: Chris Pratt Can’t Stop Goofing Around in New Featurettes

21 May 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Looking back on his work in shows like The O.C. and Everwood, it’s kind of great to realize that the goofy Chris Pratt would one day become a bona fide movie star. Indeed, not only did he land the lead role in a Marvel movie, but he was chosen to take charge of a new entry in the Jurassic Park franchise. Pratt-mania is at a fever pitch, and it’s impossible to resist the guy’s charms—especially if you were a fan of Parks and Recreation. Universal Pictures has now released a few new behind-the-scenes featurettes from Jurassic World that give us a look at the atmosphere on set, and Pratt is just as funny and fun-loving as you’d imagine. Watching these videos, I’m convinced an entire short film could be created out of bloopers, outtakes, and Pratt just goofing around in between takes. I’m »

Welcome to the Second Summer of Chris Pratt. Can you feel the heat (err, chill)? GQ has the scoop on everyone's favorite former dadbod, who reprised many classic Pratt topics: his shiny, blockbuster-friendly body; his penchant for whipping out his junk in public; and the extra-special BMs he saves for his Parks and Recreation castmates. Here's what we learned: Anna Faris loved Fat Pratt as much as we did, but apparently, he wasn't into it.Pratt told GQ that he "didn't feel too great about who I was." He means this in the physical sense: "My bones ached, I had cardiovascular issues, I was unhealthy, I was feeling rotten." His wife, Anna Faris, however, probably preferred his plushier figure. Now he's gotten more serious and is doing triathlons. Pratt said, "I think that part of her is hedging her bets that one day I'll be fat again, and she'll say, »

Chris Pratt is ready for summer—and now, so are we! The 35-year-old actor looks too good to be true on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's "Your Summer Must List" issue. While lifting himself out of the pool, his muscles look toned under his soaked tank top. It goes without saying that the actor is promoting Universal Pictures' Jurassic World, in theaters June 12. Needless to say, Pratt is having quite a moment. After the success of 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, Pratt found himself presenting at the Oscars and attending the Super Bowl.

Animal Logic sets up Canadian base

20 May 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Animal Logic is expanding so quickly that its Sydney headquarters and the pool of visual effects and animation artists in Australia aren.t big enough to accommodate the workload.

Hence the move to launch Animal Logic Vancouver, a 450,000 square feet (41,806 square metres) facility which will exclusively handle animated films for Warner Bros.

Located in the city.s Yaletown creative precinct, the studio will open in September and by mid-2016 will have 300 employees, the vast majority locals.

Animal Logic CEO and co-founder Zareh Nalbandian tells If he is making a considerable investment in the facility but he has the financial comfort of a 3-picture deal with WB which will entail four years of production.

The Lego Movie sequel, written by the creators of the original hit, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, will begin production in January. It.s the feature directing debut of Rob Schrab (Community, Parks and Recreation, The Mindy Project »
