Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Casts NFL/NCIS Alum as Inhuman 'Monster' Lash

26 August 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You can add 6-foot-8, 320-lb. Matthew Willig to Phil Coulson’s sizeable list of Season 3 woes.

The veteran NFL offensive tackle has been cast on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the role of Lash, an Inhuman who, executive producer Jeff Bell tells TVLine, “has a fairly strong opinion about what should happen to Inhumans,” who in the wake of the Season 2 finale (thanks, fish oil supplements!) are “popping up all over the world.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens To Occupy IMAX Screens For A Month

26 August 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Excitement for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is building – and fast. With little under four months to go until the release of J.J. Abrams’ sci-fi sequel, Disney is beginning to map out release plans in order to ensure that the film enjoys the biggest launch possible. One such strategy will involve its run in IMAX theaters. Despite only containing one single sequence in the big-screen format, the House of Mouse has today confirmed that The Force Awakens will be broadcast in IMAX theaters for an entire month.

Sure, it’s not unprecedented – Warner Bros. secured a similar deal for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy – but it is still remarkable. According to The Hollywood Reporter, such a tactic will mean that The Force Awakens will be screened in 375 to 400 IMAX screens across the States and a further 400 more internationally, benefitting from the premium ticket prices in the process.

The Great British Bake Off contestants are completely and utterly petrified: 12 faces of pure fear

26 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We're a bit worried about the contestants on The Great British Bake Off. Sue Perkins might have told Dorret in episode one that it's only a cake, but we're not quite so convinced.

Nadiya's facial expressions are the best thing about The Great British Bake Off

In fact, based on the below pictures, we're starting to question whether Bake Off is really just a gentle BBC Two reality show. Because these contestants seem so terrified that surely only something truly awful awaits them outside the safety of the tent. We're not sure what that might be but it's starting to look more and more like The Hunger Games as the weeks go on (despite all the puddings lying about).

Tonight, the bakers face all manner of tricky desserts and will have to master them to ensure their survival - in other words, we're expecting lots more examples of shaky hands and shaky nerves. »

'Star Wars 7' Is Taking Over All IMAX Theaters for a Month

26 August 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it wouldn't surprise anyone if it ended up becoming the highest-grossing movie of 2015, most likely breaking a few box office records along the way. We've known for quite some time that this highly-anticipated sci-fi adventure will be released in IMAX theaters, but today we have a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, which reveals the movie will essentially dominate IMAX theaters for an entire month. Director J.J. Abrams' sequel will be shown in every IMAX domestic theater, and most of its international theaters, where it will be the only movie to screen during a four-week run.

IMAX struck a similar deal with Warner Bros. for The Hobbit trilogy, where the company reserved all of their screens for this one movie, but that deal was brokered four years ago, and they haven't made one since, until now. The movie will »

Why Mr. Robot is the summer’s most (and least) original new series

26 August 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In the opening minutes of the pilot for USA’s Mr. Robot, superhacker Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) meets with the shifty proprietor of a chain of coffeeshops. Over the course of their conversation, Elliot reveals the flaws in his cybersecurity—flaws that enabled Elliot to uncover this fellow’s immense cache of child pornography. The topic shifts: Who is Elliot? What does he want? Money? Before long, though, Elliot heads out and the cops storm in to mete out justice. That, it would seem, will be the blueprint for Mr. Robot: the story of yet another maladjusted genius with One Weird Trick for solving crimes while disregarding the rules, man. He’ll track down hidden bad guys, overcoming his obvious social awkwardness and seemingly timid nature, and expose them to the world with the help of cutting-edge, buzzword-heavy technological innovation. After all, this is USA, the home of Burn Notice, »

Jennifer Lawrence And Amy Schumer Co-Writing A Script

26 August 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

That escalated quickly. Mere months after meeting and becoming Bffs, Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are working together on a script that they’re aiming to star in. Given that it’s still at an early stage, Lawrence – ostensibly talking to The New York Times about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 – was reticent to reveal too much. But she did say that, “we play sisters. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.” Lawrence says she got in contact with Schumer after seeing Trainwreck, and the two became fast friends, with Lawrence joining the comedian, actress and writer on holiday with her crowd. That has now become a professional connection. “Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavours,” she says. “It’s been the most fun experience of my life.

Jennifer Lawrence may have just broken the internet. Again.

"The Hunger Games" star revealed that she is cowriting a film with new Bff Amy Schumer ("Trainwreck").

"We play sisters [in the film]," Lawrence said in an interview with the New York Times. "We're almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We've got about 100 pages right now."

The Oscar-winner also told the Times what everyone really wants to know: How this team-up happened.

"I emailed her after I saw 'Trainwreck' and said, 'I don't know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I'm in love with you,'" Lawrence recalled "We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting."

And texting turned into jet skiing together in early August and then writing a movie, naturally.

How good as 2015 been for moviegoers?  This past year audiences have witnessed an opening act that included blockbusters such as “Cinderella,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Furious 7.”  Hollywood followed that string up with summer goods such as “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Trainwreck,” “Inside Out” and “Jurassic World” (currently no. 3 all-time at the U.S. box office).  And while we’re currently experiencing the annual cycle of late August dumps you won't even watch on an airplane, the movie gods may have saved the best for last. The upcoming fall movie season has a little bit of something for everyone.  Comedy fans can look forward to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reuniting on screen in “Sisters,” Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are also back together in “Daddy’s Home” and Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie look to party in “The Night Before »
