Sometimes it’s the little things that get you through the day. And when times are as hard as these, you need to enjoy the little things. Leading into last weekend’s MTV Movie & TV Awards was a show I never knew existed before, but has just become my new favorite thing: Lip Sync Battle. The series is a musical competition not entirely dissimilar from shows like American Idol. In it, celebrities face off against one another in choreographed dance battles as they mouth the words to the latest hit songs. Now, I generally can’t stand shows like this. Somewhere between

Somewhere between “Jackass” and “Faces of Death” lies the queasy allure of “The Road Movie.” Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s feature is a found-footage compilation of clips shot by Russian dashboard cameras, then posted online. The episodes cunningly edited together here run a gamut of incidents from road-rage and “crazy person wandering in the road” to myriad harrowing collisions. Taken together, they comprise a landscape of cruel fate and calamity from which it’s impossible to avert your gaze — though sometimes you may wish you had.
A “That’s Entertainment!” of vehicular horrors, the film has sold to various territories (Oscilloscope picked up North American rights), and will probably generate more than one sequel, official or otherwise, before it finishes its global theatrical tour. A long shelf life in home formats is guaranteed.

There’s been a Murder on the Orient Express! But who, pray tell, is responsible for such a heinous atrocity? That’s a question set to be presented to moviegoers by writer-director Kenneth Branagh, who is currently orchestrating what’s arguably one of the most high-profile ‘whodunits?’ in Hollywood history.
Set to pull into the station in November, Entertainment Weekly has today sifted through the perplexing riddles and throwaway clues to uncover the first-look photos for Branagh’s long-brewing remake, who also headlines Fox’s star-studded ensemble as Hercule Poirot, the detective tasked with solving the riddle of the titular murder.
You’ll be able to catch a glimpse of Poirot in action up above, as he begins to interrogate all of the passengers on board the vessel. Somewhere between its long, winding journey from Istanbul to Paris, »

For years, having Adam Sandler’s name associated with a project has served as a kind of warning label for those who tired of his man-child schtick back in the late 1990s. Yet, despite the significant hate often lobbed Sandler’s way, he just keeps on cranking out one lowbrow comedy after another, wringing every last bit of fan goodwill with each painfully unfunny punchline. Yet, miraculously, he’s not only kept working, but also managed to land a lucrative multi-picture deal with Netflix, a contract that was recently extended. In fact, the latest effort to come from the deal, Sandy Wexler, is currently threatening to invade your home at this very moment.
In the new film, Sandler plays the titular talent agent, a pathological liar and messy eater whose fledgling agency gets a big break when he discovers singer Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson). Set in the mid-1990s, Sandy Wexler »

Reality franchises The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise will be back during the warmer months, as will game shows Celebrity Family Feud and $100,000 Pyramid.

ABC has set its summer schedule, including premiere dates for Shonda Rhimes’ “Still Star-Crossed,” the limited series “Somewhere Between” and the Princess Diana docu-series “The Story of Diana.” “Still Star-Crossed,” the “Romeo & Juliet” sequel series from “Scandal” alum Heather Mitchell, will premiere on Monday, May 29 at 10 p.m. The series, picked up last year, was originally slated for midseason but was absent from the schedule along with the Allison Tolman comedy “Downward Dog.” ABC had reportedly toyed with the idea of saving the show — which was ordered as “Still Star-Crossed” and stripped of that title during production, only to have. »

Somewhere between champagne, fireworks and rose petals, it can be easy for Bachelor and Bachelorette couples to get wrapped up in the jet-setting, over-the-top whirlwind of a love story that the show provides. Keeping that love alive once the cameras turn off? That’s a much taller order.
This season’s Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher – who is engaged to Jordan Rodgers, the contestant she chose at the end of the show – has made it clear that she’s in this forever. In a new interview with People, Fletcher admits that she can’t stop fantasizing about their wedding day, which will »

Somewhere between Scanners and Beyond The Gates exists Game Of Death, a kill-em-all deathmatch rooted in Hasbro innocence. Directors Sebastien Landry and Laurence “Baz” Morais inject nihilistic curiosity into a gruesome, head-splitting gore flick that abides by predetermined rules. Questions about existence first, visceral body-mutilating second. Or is it bloody, practical-fx-driven cranium combusting first, existential dread second? There’s a constant tug-of-war at play between bewildered contestants and unlucky bystanders, who are slain in the name of diabolical decisions. Are there any winners in the Game Of Death? That’s for you to decide.
It all starts with millennial partying. Attractive hardbodies swill liquor and get high while chillaxing poolside at some lavish crash pad. Ashley (Emelia Hellman) hooks up with boyfriend Matt (Thomas Vallieres). Kenny (Nick Serino) wakes up with a cartoon dick on his face. Brother Tom (Sam Earle) receives a sensual lap dance from sister Beth (Victoria Diamond) – wait, »

Somewhere between a bunch of commercials and a half-time show, a game of football was played last night, and it was a doozy. The Super Bowl went into overtime for the first time in history, the New England Patriots reigned supreme and fans got one helluva show. And advertisers got a lot of eyeballs.
You’ve likely already seen the onslaught of movie and TV related promos that dropped during the game, but if that wasn’t enough, the stars cashed some big paychecks to promote everything from tax services to jewelry and we’re rounded it all up below.

Author Johanna Koljonen presents fourth Nostradamus report at the Goteborg Film Festival’s Nordic Film Market.
How the industry is coping - or not coping - with too many feature films flooding the market is one of the key topics of the fourth Nostradamus report, presented by author Johanna Koljonen today at the Goteborg Film Festival’s Nordic Film Market.
This surge of production isn’t working in the existing value chain of distribution.
“There is no equivalent surge of innovation in distribution and audience relations,” the report stated. “A theatrical window is not feasible even for all quality films - not even on the festival circuit. A complete digital transformation of the small screen landscape seems inevitable.”
Koljonen said one reason that more films were being made were new funders entering the sector, regional funders and tax credits increasing activity, and “the democratization of film production.” As many new filmmakers start their careers, that doesn’t »

Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you have seen “Homeland’s” Jan. 29 episode, “The Covenant.”
Carrie learns a hard lesson and finagles her way out of a jam as only she can. Saul bares down on a bad guy with fast-talking intensity, furrowed brow and formidable beard. And Quinn gets a good chunk of his groove back in the third episode of “Homeland’s” sixth season, “The Covenant.”
The episode written by Ron Nyswaner and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter finds our characters doing what they do best, albeit in a slightly different context than in past seasons. This episode felt like a table-setting for more dramatic developments to come. But it is always a pleasure to watch these great actors — Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin and Rupert Friend — bring to life telling moments big and small that add to depth to their characters.
Meanwhile, the episode also lays the track for renewed suspicion of F. Murray Abraham’s »
