15 years ago today, the Toros stepped out onto the football field and put some serious cheer back into the atmosphere. To steal a phrase from the film: Bring It On's the poo - so take a big whiff.
A Hollywood star from the age of 12 thanks to her breakthrough role in Interview with the Vampire, Dunst's star was burning brightly when she led the Toros as Torrance Shipman. Two years later, she went on to land her biggest role as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's three Spider-man films.
In recent years, she's reinvented herself as a critical darling, winning Best Actress at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for Melancholia, »
Fox’s small screen slate is getting a dose of futuristic sci-fi this fall in the shape of its Minority Report reboot. The sequel series is set ten years after the events of Steven Spielberg’s 2002 movie when PreCrime is obsolete. It imagines a world where exhausted cops long for the days when three psychics in a water tank told them who to arrest. A decade later, those subaquatic Precogs no longer serve the police. Instead, law enforcement now relies on different technology to apprehend criminals.
Spielberg’s three Precogs are still involved in the series, however, living out their days in a witness protection-type deal. Dash (Stark Sands) continues to suffer from visions; his twin brother Arthur (Nick Zano) is elsewhere; and Agatha (Laura Regan) appears to have her own secretive agenda. Enter Meagan Good’s cop Lara Vega, who crosses paths with Dash and the pair team up to combat crime. »

With the series premiere of Fox's Minority Report just over one month away, the network has released a new first look preview for this highly-anticipated sci-fi TV series. Stars Meagan Good (Det. Lara Vega), Stark Sands (Dash) and Wilmer Valderrama (Det. Will Blake) give us some insight into their characters.

Set in Washington, D.C., it is 10 years after the demise of Precrime, a law enforcement agency tasked with identifying and eliminating criminals...before their crimes were committed. To carry out this brand of justice, »
Ice Cube (22 Jump Street) and Kevin Hart (Get Hard) will be reteaming and reprising their roles as James Peyton and Ben Barber, respectively. The first official poster for the film was just released a few days ago as well.
The first Ride Along may not have impressed critics, but it raked in an extremely large amount of money at the box office. On a relatively small $25 million budget, the film made close to $154 million worldwide.
Ride Along 2 is set for release on January 15th in the States and January 22nd in the UK, with a cast that also includes Tika Sumpter, Benjamin Bratt, Ken Jeong and Olivia Munn. Tim Story, who also worked with Hart on Ride Along, Think Like a Man and Think Like a Man Too, is returning to direct. »

Based on the international blockbuster film by executive producer Steven Spielberg and the first of his films to be adapted for television, Minority Report follows the unlikely partnership between a man haunted by the future and a cop haunted by her past, as they race to stop the worst crimes of the year 2065 before they happen.
Set in Washington, D.C., it is 10 years after the demise of Precrime, a law enforcement agency tasked with identifying and eliminating criminals…before their crimes were committed.

Class clowns can have potential but giggles don’t get passing grades. This is certainly the case with NBC’s chuckle-worthy but rudderless new sitcom “Mr. Robinson,” which debuts Wednesday. Comedian Craig Robinson (“The Office” and “Hot Tub Time Machine”) stars as a night-club performer who teaches a music class at his alma mater by day for extra money. He also hopes to rekindle a romance with the school’s pretty English teacher Victoria (Meagan Good, “Think Like a Man”) — the one who got away. Laughs abound when Robinson, who as in real life is in a band called Nasty Delicious, »

Mr. Robinson isn’t a show for everyone, which is largely a function of the fact that Welcome Back, Kotter wasn’t for everyone, and owed a lot of the success it had to limited alternatives.
Don’t get me wrong, Welcome Back, Kotter was not only a great show, but it managed a surprising amount of influence on the landscape of television for decades… it just wasn’t for everyone.
Mr. Robinson stars Craig Robinson as a part-time substitute/part-time singer who runs into an old flame and hopes to rekindle things. When he learns that she now teaches at their old High School, he takes the first chance he gets to substitute there.
Mr. Robinson is laid-back almost to a fault… well, probably to a fault. He quickly hints that he wasn’t very serious about school, and hasn’t been very serious about anything since, but he »

"Cooley High" ought to be remembered as a cinema milestone, and its writer and director remembered as pioneers.
Released 40 years ago this week (on June 25, 1975), it ought to be celebrated for its vast influence on movies, TV, and music. As a young-men-coming-of-age movie, it deserves to be mentioned alongside Fellini's "I Vitelloni," George Lucas's "American Graffiti," Barry Levinson's "Diner," and John Singleton's "Boyz N the Hood." And yet, the film and its creators have been largely forgotten, lost to history.
The story behind "Cooley High" is even more dramatic than the comedy-drama that unspooled on the screen. It's the story of Kenneth Williams, who, like protagonist Preach, left Chicago's Cabrini-Green projects with dreams of becoming a Hollywood screenwriter. Having dropped out of high school, he hitchhiked from the Windy City to Hollywood with $5 in his pocket and no connections, and for a while he supported himself selling drugs. »

The pair displayed an easy and playful camaraderie as they explained their working relationship to a crowd of Emmy voters, among them many costume designers.
“I just like being surrounded by costume designers,” said Kaling. “You guys are like f—ing crazy people. When you’re around the artists in the Costume Designers Guild, it’s like the Hunger Games. It’s, like, white women in turbans, and they have their department and they all look equally fabulous.”
“And horrifyingly, I’m the elected leader of all of them, so what does that say about me?” retorted Perez, president of the Costume Designers Guild.
How they met and clicked:
“I had seen ‘Think Like a Man.’ It’s a movie that’s super-funny. »

It's hard to believe it's been 11 years since we first met big screen heartthrob Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) and his boys, Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric "E" Murphy (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) on HBO's "Entourage." And, who can forget our favorite hot-headed agent, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven)?! The eight-season series was filled to the brim with celebrity cameos, hot Hollywood nightclubs and a whole lot of partying -- and we loved every minute of it. While we finally get to see these boys back together on-screen in the "Entourage" movie on June 5, toofab is taking a look at what Vinny and his pack-mates have been up to since the show premiered over a decade ago in 2004. Grenier was probably best known for starring in the movie "Drive Me Crazy" before he nabbed his "Entourage" role. He later co-starred with Anne Hathaway in "The Devil Wears Prada" and directed two documentaries, »
