8 February 2017 2:15 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A sequel to the Project Cars game is coming out later this year!  Check out what Bandai Namco has been working on with the new trailer!

Bandai Namco's premiere racing game, Project Cars, is getting a well-deserved sequel in Project Cars 2!  However, this isn't the same game you remember.  Bandai Namco has seen fit to outfit their new game with all kinds of updates from graphics to weather features to even a new Online Championship mode!  

In honor of their announcement, Bandai Namco released a beautifully-done realistic trailer for Project Cars 2.  Have a look!

After watching that trailer, I wasn't sure if I had been watching an episode of Top Gear or if that was still Bn's sequel.  Even though it's essentially alpha footage, the level of detail is a testament to Bn and Slightly Mad Studios' dedication to this project.  It'll be interesting to see if that »

4 February 2017 11:57 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Increasing sales of digital rights and higher demand from top Asian markets fueled a 10% rise in the value of British TV exports during the 2015-2016 cycle, according to the U.K.’s Pact trade org.

The annual survey by the Producers Alliance for Cinema and Television found British TV exports hit about $1.65 billion in 2015-16, up 10% from the 2014-15 cycle, when sales were essentially flat from the year before. Among the most widely distributed productions were “The Night Manager,” “Downton Abbey,” “Deutschland 83,” “The Returned,” “Sherlock,” “Doctor Who,” “Poldark,” “The X Factor,” “Mr. Selfridge,” “The Mysteries of Laura” and “Top Gear.”

Exports to Japan marked the single-biggest increase by country, rising 48% year-over-year to $18.7 million. India (43%), China (40%), South Korea (39%) and Spain (33%) rounded out the top five gainers. The U.S. remains the largest export market for U.K. producers, with business rising 16% to $620 million.

Matt LeBlanc will always be best known to fans as Joey Tribbiani from Friends, but according to the 49-year-old actor, his daughter, Marina, "couldn't care less."

The Man With a Plan star was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, where he got candid on what his 12-year-old mini-me thinks is cool these days -- and it's definitely not dad.

"I don't think she thinks I'm too cool, no," he admits. "I think her friends at school and stuff, they're like watching Friends now, that's about the age they get into it."

"But she can't be bothered," he adds. "She just couldn't care less."

Matt reveals that Marina has seen reruns of the popular NBC sitcom, but to her, it's just "her dad."

"She sees me enough," he says. "She's like, 'Overdose on my dad. Ugh.' Yeah »

Clarkson's bracelets to Hammond's ice-cream: The Grand Tour is too desperate to offend

Clarkson and co are trying so hard to be irksome, from Jeremy’s gap-year jewellery collection to Richard’s ice-cream homophobia. But they just can’t get their Amazon bosses angry

There have been nine episodes of The Grand Tour now, all sequestered behind Amazon’s paywall. When the show works – as with the two-part Namibia special – its formula runs like clockwork.
