After yesterday’s brilliant news of Big Finish extending their Doctor Who audio licence until 2020, today they have released even more fantastic news about Doctor Who: Doom Coalition, which is expected to go on sale in November 2015
Doom Coalition is an epic saga that will span four box sets (a total of sixteen episodes) forming one breathtaking inter-connecting saga that will push the Doctor’s bravery and resourcefulness to its limits. Starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor and his companion Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) they will both head into a brand new era of Doctor Who, as the Tardis is recalled to Gallifrey by the Time Lords. And they will be battling a new foe known only as The Eleven.
When The Riot Club debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last September, I predicted it would be your next favorite pretty-boys flick. Think The History Boys meets Skulls, but with satirical commentary on the English class system and a cast straight out of British GQ. Based on Laura Wade’s play Posh, the film follows a club of hedonistic wankers, including The Hunger Games’ Sam Claflin, Jupiter Ascending’s Douglas Booth, and The Host’s Max Irons. But no cast member has more to chew on than Claflin, whose character Alastair has spent his life living in the shadow of his older brother, and [spoiler] who actually stands on a table during a debauched formal dinner and makes a speech about how much he hates poor people. Claflin, for the record, grew up very much not posh in Ipswich, Suffolk. Vulture spoke to him by phone about playing the bad guy for once, »

It's been a rocky year for Oscar winners embracing roles in fantasy blockbusters. Eddie Redmayne delivered a pungent ham and cheese performance in The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending, while Julianne Moore turns it up to 11 for her role as an evil witch in this week's Seventh Son.
Moore was years away from even setting foot on the set of Still Alice when she made Seventh Son (it's been trapped in post-production hell for a while), but it does make you wonder if there's some truth to the myth that Oscar winners seem destined for an immediate career stumble. Moore at least seems to be having fun with her role as Seventh Son's Mother Malkin. To say she's chewing the scenery would be a slight misnomer seeing as so »
The casualties this winter were staggering. Will Smith (Focus), Channing Tatum (Jupiter Ascending), Chris Hemsworth (Blackhat) and Sean Penn (The Gunman) crashed and burned in flashy vehicles designed to trade on their star power. Even Liam Neeson, so reliable in the Taken franchise, stumbled with the knockoff Run All Night. At the same time, February’s Fifty Shades of Grey and its $560 million gross minted two new stars in Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. Or did it? Such is the tricky nature of star power these days: Actors toplining a movie that grosses hundreds of millions aren’t necessarily worth much

There's no way to really describe today's episode other than to say it's all over the place. We talk about cleaning fish, fantasy sports, news stories and lose track of what we were talking about more than once to the point the DVD and Blu-ray segment mentions only one movie and then goes off on a wild tangent.

Last night saw the debut of James Corden as the newest Late Late Show host, as the British actor, who was last seen on the big screen in the 2014 musical Into The Woods, stepped in to take over from Craig Ferguson in the post-Letterman time slot, following Ferguson’s decision to step down from the role. Corden’s first guests included Jupiter Ascending‘s Mila Kunis and two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks.
Recreating Hanks’ filmography can be a challenge, as the performer has worked in a wide range of films over the years, from comedies such as Turner & Hooch to dramas such as Philadelphia, and even animated fare, such as the Toy Story films. Corden, however, took on that challenge last night, with Hanks in the studio to lend a helping hand. The resulting video, in which Corden dons the same wig to play everyone from Meg Ryan to Daryl Hannah, »

Talk about starting with a bang! For James Corden's premiere episode of CBS' The Late Late Show, Mila Kunis regaled the new host and fellow guest Tom Hanks with a story about her sex life with Ashton Kutcher. Yes, the Jupiter Ascending star really did divulge all the dirty details about her late-night romps with the Two and a Half Men star. Asked how life has changed since giving birth to 5-month-old Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, Mila said, "I love it. I've said this before, I've gone on record—I loved being pregnant and I love being a mom. I really do." "Now that you're a mother, do you still get to enjoy date nights and date days?" James asked. "Yeah. We »
On The Late Late Show's debut tonight, James Corden gets to the bottom of the Mila Kunis-Ashton Kutcher marriage rumors. "Did you get married?" the British host bluntly asks the Jupiter Ascending star, to which she responds with a coy, "I don't know, maybe."

It appears Mila Kunis is officially Mrs. Kutcher!
Mila recently appeared on the premiere of British comedian James Corden's The Late Late Show alongside Tom Hanks, and in the new interview airing Monday night, Corden's questioning and Hanks' goading lead Mila to apparently confirm that she and Ashton Kutcher have already tied the knot.
After Hanks jokingly calls Ashton Mila's "hus-Ashton," the 31-year-old Jupiter Ascending actress plays coy until Corden point-blank tells her, "Oh c'mon, nobody's 'maybe' gotten married. Either you're married or you're not." After some nudging from Hanks to look at her wedding finger, Corden apparently sees a wedding band, confidently exclaiming to the audience, "Oh, you got married! They got married everybody!"
Mila doesn't exactly deny the statement, though she's obviously a bit embarrassed when the audience starts clapping.

Game on! After a brief 10 second teaser yesterday, Sony Pictures has released the first full trailer for Pixels, the new comedy starring Adam Sandler (Grown Ups 2), which sees him defending the world from an alien invasion force of 1980’s arcade heroes and villains.

Before last year, Eddie Redmayne's best known roles were supporting parts in Les Miserables and My Week With Marilyn. Now, the British actor has a BAFTA Award, a SAG award, a Golden Globe, and an Oscar to his name.
News: Eddie Redmayne Channels Transgender Pioneer Lili Elbe for New Film
Redmayne, who won over audiences, critics, and voters with the impressive physicality of his portrayal of Als-afflicted physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, is now preparing for another transformative role. The actor is reuniting with Les Miserables director Tom Hooper to play transgender woman Lili Elbe, one of the first recipients of gender reassignment surgery, in the biographical adaptation The Danish Girl.
"I was actually offered The Danish Girl before Hawking," Redmayne told British GQ for his Spring/Summer 2015 cover story. "People go, 'Oh are you doing this transformative thing?' It's not a concerted choice. I think it will be a unique experience »
