‘American Sniper’ Thrives As Johnny Depp’s ‘Mortdecai’ Dies – Late Night B.O. Update

24 January 2015 3:01 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Saturday 3Am: With Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s American Sniper shooting down more box office records this weekend with an updated industry projection of $61.2M, another star-studded bomb went off at the B.O. following last weekend’s Blackhat debacle: Johnny Depp’s $60M R-rated comedy Mortdecai flatlined with an estimated $1.6M on Friday at 2,648 theaters, on track for a horrendous $4.6M weekend in eighth place – far below the $10-$12M that distributor Lionsgate was expecting for the OddLot co-production. Among Depp’s wide releases, that bow is lower than his 2011 Hunter S. Thompson adaptation The Rum Diary, which posted $5.1M and was also overpriced ($45M) in relation to its final domestic cume ($13M). It’s Depp’s fourth flop domestically after Alcon/WB’s Transcendence ($100M budget, $23M domestic B.O.), The Lone Ranger ($215M budget, $89M domestic) and Rum Diary (This is outside his ensemble work in »

15 Fun Facts About Conan The Barbarian

23 January 2015 11:48 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Conan the Barbarian is one of those rare 1980s movie gems that just kicked a ridiculous amount of ass. Fantasy films weren't as popular back then as they are now, and the fact that they went all-out for a violent R-rated action film is awesome. If they made that movie today, the studio would want it to be cut down to a PG-13 rating, which is kind of sad. I freakin’ love this movie, and one day hopefully we get that Legend of Conan sequel. The last thing I heard was that it would start shooting this year, and I hope that’s still the plan! While we wait for an update, I've put together a list of 15 Fun Facts for Conan the Barbarian that you might not know. Enjoy!

Schwarzenegger had to cut down on his workout routine because his arm and chest muscles were so »

Top Late-Night Jokes About Patriots 'Deflate Gate'

23 January 2015 9:33 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Reports that underinflated footballs were used in the first half of the Afc Championship Game have cast a shadow on the upcoming Super Bowl Xlix -- but provided lots of material for late-night hosts.

Despite New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick both denying on Thursday having anything to do with ball tampering, "Deflate Gate" is still trending. The press conference itself had quotes primed for jokes. "It's not like I squeeze the football," Brady said. "I grip the football."

Photos: Stars Who Love Sports!

Here are the best jokes to come out of the late shows surrounding the NFL ball deflation scandal.

Conan: "This is not the first time the Patriots have been accused of cheating," Conan O'Brien begins. "For example, there was the time they widened their own goal posts. ...There's the time they put magnets in the opposing team's helmets. ...There's the time they made opposing teams pay tolls »

Watch Conan O'Brien Mock Bill Cosby in Patriots 'Deflategate' Bit

23 January 2015 9:12 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The NFL's "Deflategate" scandal from the Afc Championship game has given late night hosts plenty of comedic ammo. On Thursday's episode of ConanConan O'Brien joked about the deflated football controversy, but one memorable gag about the New England Patriots' poor sportsmanship took an unexpected detour into Bill Cosby's sexual assault accusations. 

"This is not the first time the Patriots have been accused of cheating," O'Brien says to open the bit. He then cycles through several wacky images of the team using ridiculous approaches to victory – like putting magnets in the other teams' helmets, »

Best of late night: Benedict Cumerbatch changes his name, Ron Howard flirts with porn

23 January 2015 9:02 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This week in late night, Larry Wilmore made his debut, Jennifer Lopez made the rounds and Broad City made a sartorial statement

On Monday night’s Conan, Rob Lowe admitted he doesn’t “get” James Franco. Stars: they really are just like us! Lowe then read some choice excerpts from Franco’s recent poetry collection – apparently payback for the time Franco read a bunch of excerpts from Lowe’s book in front of various American monuments. Stars: maybe less like us than we think.

Best of Late Night TV: Blake Shelton's Whisper Challenge and Felicity Jones's Oscar Reaction (Video)

22 January 2015 10:36 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Country crooner Blake Shelton is known for his melodious voice, so naturally Jimmy Fallon made him play Whisper Challenge on "The Tonight Show," a game which basically involved Blake complaining and having no idea who Benedict Cumberbatch is. Quote: "I've never even heard of that."

We're in the midst of Deflate Gate (The Patriots are being accused of deflating some footballs, sigh), and Edward Norton visited Jimmy Kimmel to sound off on this extremely important topic. In other words, enjoy lots of "ball play" jokes.

"The Theory of Everything's" Felicity Jones stopped by "Late Night" to talk about how she found out about her Oscar nomination. Turns out she woke up at 4 a. »

Conan O’Brien Teams with Archer in Animated Car Chase

21 January 2015 4:27 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Conan is in the Danger Zone.

Superspy Sterling Archer, from the FX animated comedy “Archer,” stopped by Conan O’Brien’s show Tuesday to pick up the latenight host for some espionage hijinks. The pair’s animated jaunt proved Conan to be a surprisingly effective shotgun-seat spy companion, even if his general clumsiness did destroy Archer’s car.

Along those lines, Rip Andy Richter.

“Archer” at 10 p.m. on Thursdays on FX.

21 January 2015 12:47 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Jimmy Fallon may be playing games with celebrities like Keri Russell every night, but it looks like ratings rival Conan O'Brien is busy hanging out with fictional celebrities. On Monday night, the eponymous Conan host Blue-Skidoo'd into the animated world of Sterling Archer to help the world's best/worst spy take on some Russian mobsters. Animated Conan made some #hip references to apps like Uber and Tinder while also riffing on classic Archer running jokes like "Danger Zone" and "phrasing!" »

Rob Lowe Killed an Iowa State Bird While Golfing, Quit the Sport

21 January 2015 9:48 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Rob Lowe is really, really sorry. The Parks and Recreation alum admitted during an appearance on Conan on Monday, Jan. 19, that he accidentally killed a bird while playing golf back in 2007. The incident occurred during a friendly celebrity tournament, but left such an impression on the actor that he quit the sport cold turkey. "I gave golf up because I killed the Iowa state bird in flight, in a golf tournament," Lowe, 50, told host Conan O'Brien. "I went to a PGA Pro-Am celebrity thing in the [...] »

Best of Late Night TV: Eric Stonestreet, Stephen Amell Play 'Name That Thing'; Keri Russell's 'Inflatable Flip Cup' (Video)

20 January 2015 11:03 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"Modern Family" star Eric Stonestreet and "Arrow" star Stephen Amell were on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday night, and they competed in a fun game called "Name That Thing." Spoiler alert! Eric won, but he admitted in one of his individual videos that Stephen probably should've won because the final round was to name a bunch of U.S. Presidents and Stephen is Canadian. Eric said Stephen knows more about the U.S. than Eric does about Canada, so it wasn't quite fair. Eric also talked about pranking his "Modern Family" co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and shared his latest torture, sending him a sex toy in the mail. He's a big football fan, »

Instead, he got a phone call beckoning him outside. When O’Brien stepped outside, he stepped into the animated world of the show created by Adam Reed »

Rob Lowe Won't Play Golf Anymore Because of One Fatal Incident (Video)

20 January 2015 4:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Most people wouldn't peg golf as a killer sport, but most people aren't Rob Lowe. The handsome leading man, 50, visited Conan Monday and mentioned the reason that he hasn't played golf in quite some time: It's just not worth the cost … of life. In 2007, Lowe was playing in a celebrity tournament, when he "hit a really - I thought - nice sand wedge" and hit a bird mid-air, killing it instantly and causing it to fall into the sand trap. Complicating things: The bird was an American goldfinch, Iowa's state bird. Evidently not seeking to ease Lowe's mind, the tournament's »

Best of Late Night TV: Jennifer Lopez's Controversial 'Catchphrase,' Benedict Cumberbatch's New Names (Video)

19 January 2015 11:20 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Jennifer Lopez was on "The Tonight Show" Monday night, and a couple of interesting things happened. For one, she and Jimmy Fallon played "Catchphrase" opposite actor Anthony Mackie and comedian Steve Higgins. They were all pretty amazing, and ultra competitive, although there were a few uncalled cheating incidents for the winning side. Just saying. (JLo, you were robbed.) That's a key discussion in the comments, if you click on the video - that and the distraction powers of JLo's own bottom line. The fans noticed. But still, it was a great game to watch and it's not like anyone deflated a football or anything. (Too soon?) "That was »

‘Conan’ Makes Cheryl Boone Isaacs’ Oscar Noms Flub So Much Worse (Video)

15 January 2015 9:16 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs quickly caught and corrected her verbal gaffe during her reading of the Oscar nominations on Thursday morning, but it didn’t matter. She said “Dick Poop” instead of Dick Pope, and that was all the Internet needed to take her gaffe and run with it.

Suddenly, John Travolta‘s “Adele Dazeem” — while introducing Idina Menzel on last year’s Oscars telecest — doesn’t sound so bad at all.

Matt LeBlanc Once Told Princes Harry and William to 'F--- Off' (Video)

14 January 2015 3:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If this were a Friends episode, it would be "The One Where Joey Swears at the Royal Princes." Matt LeBlanc visited Conan Tuesday and mentioned that he'd once been invited to a polo match by the royal family. Though he admitted he knows nothing about polo, as he says, "[When] you get invited by the royals, you go." So LeBlanc watched the match and queued in line to meet Princes William and Harry afterwards, as one does. But most people who meet the Princes didn't star in a beloved sitcom. LeBlanc said that when he got face to face with the royals, »

Best of Late Night TV: Chris Hemsworth's Sexy Water War, Jessica Chastain's Funny Wrigley's Ad (Video)

13 January 2015 11:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Chris Hemsworth, the reigning Sexiest Man Alive, earned his title Tuesday night on "The Tonight Show." He played "Water War" with Jimmy Fallon, and since the loser had to be water cannoned by the winner, you had to know Thor would lose so we could see him drenched. He even did a little dance as Jimmy hosed him down. Let's just say the audience approved. It's kind of a fun game, too - a twist on the card game War - and they had a laugh about it. Could make a good drinking game, beyond water. Chris also showed off his new shorter haircut in his sit-down interview with Jimmy. »
