Lin-Manuel Miranda now has what he considers a "superpower" thanks to his years rapping with his hip-hop improv group Freestyle Love Supreme. That "superpower," an ability to rhyme with ease on a deadline, has not only affected his own work for the stage, it's also one of the reasons he was tapped to compose closing raps for two of Neil Patrick Harris's Tony hosting stints. And now that superpower, along with the others who possess it, has a platform: a Freestyle Love Supreme TV show premieres on Pivot tonight. EW chatted with Miranda—best known as the star, composer »

A veritable who’s-who of cinema’s tough guys in 2014 – including Ethan Hawke, Luis Guzman, Michael K. Williams and filmmaker J.C. Chandor – came out to the Lincoln Square Regal Imax for the premiere of Antoine Fuqua’s “The Equalizer” on Monday night.
Among the stars, the mood was jubilant, a celebration in and of itself of Fuqua’s first collaboration with Denzel Washington since their vaunted “Training Day.” On the red carpet, Washington winced playfully as “Saturday Night Live’s” Jay Pharoah teasingly hollered out: “King Kong Ain’T Got S— On Me!” – an unmistakable reference to Washington’s 2001 performance (which won him the Academy Award for Best Actor.)
“The Equalizer” is Fuqua’s first formal test run into Imax, according to Imax’s Greg Foster. “We’re pitching him actively to shoot his next movie with our cameras. His style of filmmaking very much aligns itself to who and »

Macquarie Securities analyst Amy Yong on Wednesday suggested that NBCUniversal could end up being worth more than Time Warner if its recent financial and ratings momentum continues. In a reported entitled "30 Rock > Columbus Circle?," a reference to the locations of the two entertainment giants' New York headquarters, she wrote: "NBCU’s accelerated progress has gone lost in the regulatory review process [for owner Comcast's planned acquisition of Time Warner Cable]. If broadcast ratings continue their upward trajectory, rebranding efforts at cable networks resonate and film/theme parks layer on additional franchises, NBCU could be worth $50 billion and more

“How elaborate is the camera?” The Foxy Merkins director Madeleine Olnek texted me as I was walking to photograph her with her female laden crew at Columbus Circle. “We would like to stage ourselves being hit by a cab,” she explained simply and obviously. As it happened, a few months prior to making The Foxy Merkins, a film about lesbian hookers, Olnek was in a taxi driven by a woman named Debbie. They got to talking and Debbie threw out the “If you ever need an [insert random gender, race, or career here]” phrase filmmakers always get. In Debbie’s case it […] »

It’s a big week for media companies and real estate. Yesterday Comcast announced a plan to build a $1.2B corporate campus in Philadelphia. Now Time Warner says that Related Companies, an entity owned by the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, and Gic ponied up slightly more for the Time Warner Center at New York’s Columbus Circle, which opened in 2004. The deal is largely in line with what people expected in July when Time Warner agreed to move its NYC headquarters and operations, including CNN, to an 80-story skyscraper planned for the industrial Hudson Yards area around 10th Ave and 33rd St. The company will lease its current office space from Related until early 2019, and has made “an initial financial commitment” to Hudson Yards with plans to move there in late 2018.
