Your favorite A-list stars are spreading Christmas cheer and getting into the holiday spirit big time! Here's a look at the celebrities who are nailing it this Christmas.
In the spirit of the season, Kevin Jonas gifted Meredith Vieira with her very own Kim Kardashian ornament when he stopped by The Meredith Vieira Show on Friday. It gave that Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball" ornament last year a run for its money.

But perhaps the craftiest Diy Christmas decoration comes courtesy of Mindy Kaling. Thanks to her show The Mindy Project, Reese Witherspoon has her very own Christmas decoration trend sweeping social media.
The "Wreath Witherspoon"-- a wreath plastered with pictures of the Oscar-winning actress, spread like wild fire with fans sharing their own homemade Wreath Witherspoon's on Instagram. Reese recently »
It seemed this year that if any artist was due for the retrospective treatment, it was "Unbroken" cinematographer Roger Deakins. While I of course did not address all of the 50-plus films he has shot throughout his illustrious career during a recent extended interview, I settled on a few in particular that I think represent a nice cross-section of his work. Each of them — "Nineteen Eighty-Four," "Sid and Nancy," "Barton Fink," "The Shawshank Redemption," "Kundun," "The Man Who Wasn't There" and "The Village" — will get their own space in the next few days. Cinematographer Roger Deakins knew director Michael Radford from their film school days. They cut their teeth together in 1983 on their theatrical narrative debut, "Another Time, Another Place," which caused a stir at the Cannes Film Festival and led to Radford being presented the opportunity to tackle a dream project: an adaptation of George Orwell's pivotal 1948 novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four. »

BioShock creator Ken Levine is working on a new game, and he says its "open narrative" design will be like Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor...
For many gamers, Ken Levine will need little introduction. The mind behind such classics as Thief: The Dark Project, System Shock 2 and BioShock, he's famous in the industry for creating smartly-designed games with thought-provoking narratives.
Last year's BioShock Infinite, although critically acclaimed, had faced a lengthy and difficult production. Levine himself seemed exhausted after its release; in February this year, he wrote a letter which stated, "Seventeen years is a long time to do any job, even the best one [...] While I'm deeply proud of what we've accomplished together, my passion has turned to making a different kind of game than we've done before."
That letter effectively marked the end of Irrational Games. Of the 90-or-so staff still around after the completion of BioShock Infinite and its Dlc, »
It's been one year since YouTuber Bethany Mota brought her personal brand to the fashion world by attaching her name to an Aeropostale clothing line. That collection was a big success, and this year, Aeropostale wants to do it again. In time for the holiday season, Mota has unveiled her "Anniversary Collection," a curated selection of clothes and home decor items. The sales potential of Mota's Aeropostale collections has been a popular topic over the past year. As several articles have noted, changing trends in teen fashion have hit Aeropostale hard, and through the 19-year-old fashion vlogger, the clothing retailer can offer a fresh look that appeals directly to teenage consumers. With that in mind, Mota has based her collection around a hip, youthful style that speaks to her 7.8 million subscribers. Mota also stepped into the pages of Teen Vogue to show off her clothing line. A 26-part slideshow includes »

When I recently reviewed LittleBigPlanet 3, I said that despite having a fun and creative campaign and plenty of enticing new features for level creation, a number of noticeable glitches brought the overall package down a bit. It now seems that Sony and developer Sumo Digital are taking the first step toward addressing some of these, as Update 1.03 has gone live on PlayStation Network for both the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game.
Clocking in at 102.5 Mb for PS3 and 365.5 Mb for PS4, the update will address several occasions that have the potential to induce lag or freezes. The ability to import collectibles from LittleBigPlanet 2 has also been updated to include more items, though it was noted that some will still be missing for the time being.
The full list of updates can be seen below:

When something hits for me, it Hits. I’ve always been that way and I doubt that the fervor I have for everything I dig will ever lessen. That excitement, while having led me into a lot of great memories, have given me an equal amount of recent moments, full of wondering, “What the hell was I thinking?”. I recently experienced that feeling of embarrassment when showing my kids the greatness that is the 1994 Alex Proyas-directed masterpiece, The Crow. It’s a film that holds up in every single way, never loses its charm and still packs a punch, but also recalls a time in my life when the then 13 year old version of myself wasn’t into the film, I was Obsessed with it. It led me to dig a little deeper into the memory that fades with time as you get older, and the experience of revisiting »

More Olivia Thirlby is always a good thing. She's one of our best actresses and we need a lot more of her on the silver, and smaller, screen. Same with Vincent Kartheiser, who we don't see enough outside of weasel roles (Mad Men) or villainous archetypes (In Time), both of which he plays rather well. He's not completely out of those woods in this Red Knot trailer, but perhaps the circumstances in the film will add a few layers of nuance to his eternally wandering eye. The film was shot by director Scott Cohen over five years ago, but is now being readied for release. And it looks gorgeous. Hit the jump for the Red Knot trailer and a few words from Thirlby on the movie's production. The film also stars Billy Campbell and opens at IFC in New York on December 5th.

A novella from Stephen King’s 2010 story collection, Full Dark, No Stars, Big Driver is a literary gut punch that takes an unflinching look at an atrocious crime committed on a lonely highway, and the relentless revenge that followed. Last month, Lifetime aired a movie adaptation of Big Driver with Maria Bello as Tess Thorne and Joan Jett as Betsy Neal, and this winter Lionsgate will release the movie on DVD and Digital HD.
Press Release - “From best-selling author Stephen King comes Big Driver, arriving on DVD (plus Digital) January 27th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Starring Golden Globe® nominee Maria Bello (A History of Violence), Academy Award® winner Olympia Dukakis (Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Moonstruck, »

From the Macra to The Mysterious Planet, Andrew finds the gold in oft-unloved Doctor Who episodes from across the decades...
For the show's fiftieth anniversary, Doctor Who Magazine ran a new poll ranking the 241 stories up to and including The Time Of The Doctor. The Twin Dilemma came last again, having done so in 2009 survey, and though it does have many faults, it isn't completely bad. Colin Baker blazes his way haughtily through it, and the story noticeably lacks energy when he's off screen. Perhaps it might have been marginally better just to have had the Sixth Doctor and Peri go to a Little Chef so he could complain about the service.
In the lower half of the poll (compiled by people rating all the stories out of ten) are some pretty good stories, or at least ones that arguably don't deserve to be there. We've therefore compiled a list »

But enough about the election. Let’s go to Gotham City.
Some 25 years ago there was this big hit movie, Batman, directed by Tim Burton and starring Michael Keaton, set in the fictitious Gotham City. You knew that, right? What you maybe didn’t know, unless you’re the kind of kid whose mother is forever telling him to go outdoors and get some fresh air, for pity sake, is that we who were charged with producing the comic book versions of Batman very much admired the set design of Anton Furst. Yes – this was Gotham! Ugly and foreboding, its walls high, windows few, designed to keep nature outside, out there, »

The Dalziel and Pascoe, Clockwork Orange and Red Riding actor has died age 67. Here, we remember his finest on-screen moments
Warren Clarkes road to fame was long and hard-fought. Throughout the late 1960s and 70s, he eked out a living with a bit-part in a Playhouse here, or three separate walk-on Coronation Street characters there. In time, hed reach the level of recognition he deserved, but not before suffering through a glut of turgid period dramas like Our Mutual Friend, The Onedin Line and Jennie: Lady Randolph Churchill.
Clarkes first real brush with exposure came when he worked for Stanley Kubrick, playing the role of Alexs droog Dim in A Clockwork Orange. The role didnt ask a lot of him, relying as many subsequently would on his bulldog grunt of a face, but he nevertheless made his mark. The scene that always comes to mind first when I think of »

As if you weren’t already looking forward to spending time with your family this holiday season! In this week’s Grey’s Anatomy, Derek made the grievous error of suggesting that Mer invite her newly discovered half sister over for dinner – and her newly discovered half sister’s estranged father – and April tried to appear enthusiastic about her mother’s arrival for a visit. The hour’s titled “Don’t Let’s Start,” but what the heck? Let’s!

It's the mystery that has had Doctor Who fans scratching their heads endlessly over the last 11 weeks. Who is Missy?
"You know who I am!" declares Michelle Gomez in the tantalising trailer for the first half of the series finale, 'Dark Water'. Her comment suggests what many have suspected for a while could well be true - her title Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere is merely a cover.
So if the Doctor knows the real Missy only too well, who might she be?
The BBC are so determined to keep the mystery under wraps that they've cut out scenes in previews to avoid pesky journalists spoiling the surprise. It suggests that something big is coming. Something really big.
We've listed before the most prominent fan theories, but after ten episodes, some of those are starting to look slightly more preposterous and unlikely - The Tardis, Romana, a new character »

Alex Garland is an excellent writer. The screenwriter behind Never Let Me Go, 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Dredd has tremendous range, and the fact that he can go from breaking your heart with a tragic Kazuo Ishiguro adaptation to writing a ridiculously good action movie shows he has discovered few limits so far. Some may argue he has a problem landing third acts, but those final 30 minutes of Sunshine are completely built up to and valid. Seriously. Garland tackles high-concepts with real humanity, and his characters are generally as fascinating as his big ideas. He may strike that balance once again with his directorial debut, Ex Machina. The sci-fi film stars Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Domhnall Gleeson (In Time) and Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina). Gleeson plays Caleb, a coder who wins a contest to spend time with a private CEO, Nathan (Isaac), and his A.I. creation. When Caleb arrives at Nathan’s home he’s »

For decades, the vast and beautiful land of Texas has been used as the backdrop for dozens of feature films, spawning beloved classics from virtually every genre. Yet when it comes to horror, it seems that the one title most associated with the state remains Tobe Hooper's masterful The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). A great film which, without question, will live on, Chainsaw was one of the first instances which successfully portrayed the wide-open spaces of Texas as potential landscape of sheer terror.
In the years following the film's impact, a variety of features -- most notably a number of Chain Saw sequels/remakes -- have continued to paint Texas as a rich setting for some truly inventive and fright-filled tales. In time for Halloween, and in celebration of the Texas-set 2014 remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown (currently in limited release and on VOD), here are a few titles that have, »

Universal Pictures has announced that the Coen brothers' "Hail, Caesar!," starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes and Scarlett Johansson, among others, will be released on Feb. 5, 2016. That effectively removes it from much awards season discussion that year, but you could sort of gather that, given the subject matter and apparent tone of the film. Like "The Hudsucker Proxy," "The Big Lebowski" and "Burn After Reading" — romps that came after heady prestige pics like "Barton Fink," "Fargo" and "No Country for Old Men" — "Hail, Caesar!" looks like the boys just having a bit of fun. What's interesting about the film, which begins shooting in Los Angeles next month, is that it marks cinematographer Roger Deakins' first trip back to the world of celluloid since his last collaboration with the filmmaker siblings, "True Grit." That was four years ago. He has since embraced digital photography, preferring the Arri Alexa camera on films like "In Time, »

We've previously heard rumors that there is going to be a major change in the roster of Avengers superheroes when we finally get to The Avengers 3. That report stated that Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Black Widow may not be involved, and that other characters such as Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Ms. Marvel, and/or others could step in.
"The Avengers films, ideally, in the grand plan are always big, giant linchpins. It’s like as it was in publishing, when each of the characters would go on their own adventures and then occasionally team up for a big, 12-issue mega-event. Then they would go back into their own comics, and be changed from whatever that event was."I envision the same thing occurring after this movie, »
