14 of the Biggest Celebrity Heroes of 2016

3 December 2016 12:12 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

This past year was rough for a lot of people, but it's in our lowest moments where we get to see who the real heroes are among us.

For better or worse, 2016 gave many opportunities for heroic acts and we're looking back at a few people who rose to the challenge.

Pics: Social Media Posts That Changed the Game in 2016

1. Shannen Doherty

The 45-year-old actress has bravely shared her bout with cancer, documenting her journey for fans on social media and giving strength to those in a similar situation. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015, Doherty announced this year that the cancer spread to her lymph nodes.

"The unknown is always the scariest part," she told Et. "Is the chemo going to work? Is the radiation going to work? You know, am I going to have to go through this again, or am I going to get secondary cancer? Everything else is »

Jamie Foxx Is On The Hunt In First Trailer For Sleepless

5 October 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though his career is far from stalled, Jamie Foxx’s upwards trajectory that started with Ray back in 2004 has considerably slowed down. After his Oscar win for Taylor Hackford’s biopic, he had a few memorable roles in films like DreamgirlsLaw Abiding Citizen, Horrible Bosses and The Kingdom, but most of what he put out was ultimately filed under the “forgettable” category.

Stuff like Rio (and its sequel), Valentine’s Day, The Soloist and Due Date failed to leave much of an impact on audiences or critics. They probably netted the actor a healthy paycheque, but they certainly weren’t worthy of his undeniable talents. 2014 was the last time we saw Foxx on screen, in the wholly mediocre Annie, and though he’s been gone for quite a while, 2017’s looking like his comeback year.

Aside from a sizeable role in Robin Hood: Origins, not to mention a part »

'Magnificent Seven' and 'Storks' Look to Turn Around Box Office Fortunes

22 September 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

On the heels of the worst weekend of the year so far (based on cumulative gross for all titles) this weekend should perk things up a bit as MGM and Sony's The Magnificent Seven remake and WB's animated feature Storks are looking at strong openings. Projecting just how well this weekend's newcomers will perform, however, is something that's raising a few eyebrows in the wake of recent weeks and last week's box office bloodbath where not one, but two of the week's three new wide releases came in well below expectations, and all three failed to open over $10 million. Industry expectations for Magnificent Seven and Storks have both films opening around $30+ million. For Storks this number appears to be about right on target, but for Magnificent Seven it seems grossly conservative. Sony is projecting a $30-32 million weekend, but if it doesn't top $40 million it would be a bit of a surprise. »

‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 23 Cast Revealed

30 August 2016 5:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With less than two weeks to go before “Dancing With the Stars” returns for its 23rd season, ABC has revealed the full cast of celebrity dancers and their pro partners.

After weeks of speculation, the network confirmed that Olympic gold medalists Ryan Lochte and Laurie Hernandez will be joining the reality competition. The star-studded cast also includes model-turned-talk-show-host Amber Rose, former Texas governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry, “Brady Bunch” star Maureen McCormick, and rapper Vanilla Ice. The entire cast was unveiled Tuesday on “Good Morning America.”

Rio police charged U.S. swimmer Lochte last week for filing a false robbery report over an incident that took place during the Olympics. Lochte admitted to “over-exaggerating” the story about being robbed at gunpoint. Lochte had initially claimed that he and three teammates — James Feigen, Jack Conger, and Gunnar Bentz — were robbed in a taxi by two men with guns and badges while heading to the Olympic Village.

It’s Maui Time in Extended Olympics TV Spot For Disney’s ‘Moana’

8 August 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you happened to be tuned into the Olympics last night, you saw a new extended TV spot for the Dwayne Johnson-led Moana, and now Disney Animation has released it online. Their newest venture after the colossal success of Zootopia follows the titular Moana (Auli’i Cravalho), who sails with her hero and companion, the demi-god Maui (Johnson) to a legendary island using her navigational skills. Dwayne looks to play the sweet, goofy, shape-shifting Maui well, hitting a nice counter-note to the brave, venturous Moana to make the perfect pairing.

It promises to be a touching, rousing adventure that should continue Disney Animation’s winning streak, especially in the hands of long-time Disney writer-directors Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin). See the extended TV spot below, along with character photos, for the film that also stars Alan Tudyk, Jermaine Clement, and Nicole Scherzinger.

Introducing the Cast of Disney's Moana

26 July 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney's Moana is just a few shorts months away!  Before the animated Hawaiian-themed film hits theaters, meet the rest of the characters that will help Moana and Maui in their quest!

We already know the Demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) who is half god, half mortal, all awesome! Although, we haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting the rest of the characters in the gorgeous story of Disney's Moana!  Let's find out more about them!

Jemaine Clement (“The Bfg,” “Despicable Me,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” Flight of the Conchords) provides the voice of Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab who lives in Lalotai, the realm of monsters. The conceited crustacean wants to be more than a “bottom feeder” and overcompensates for this perceived shortcoming by covering himself in all things shiny.

Rachel House (“Whale Rider,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”) lends her voice to Gramma Tala, Moana’s confidante and best friend, »

Women's gymnastics newest superstar, Laurie Hernandez, is "very proud of being a second generation Puerto Rican" says her mother, Wanda.

How Alien: Resurrection led to the Ice Age movies

12 July 2016 5:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 13, 2016

Blue Sky Studios’ CGI work on Alien: Resurrection began a long and fruitful relationship with 20th Century Fox…

When Blue Sky Studios was tasked with creating swimming CGI Xenomorphs for the fourth film in the Alien franchise, its animators looked to inspiration from the natural world. Aptly for Hr Giger’s demonic creations, said inspiration was found in a Galapagos Island creature nicknamed by Charles Darwin the “imp of darkness”.

“We patterned [the Xenomorphs’] movements on reference footage of sea iguanas” Blue Sky’s Digital Effects Supervisor for Alien: Resurrection Mitch Kopelman told American Cinematographer magazine in November 1997. “They have this crazy little swim where they tuck their legs under their bodies and use this really long tail to propel themselves.” After much work, the end result was the CGI swimming aliens that pursued Ellen Ripley and co. through the flooded kitchens of the Usm Auriga in the 1997 sequel. »
