Smash Is Ready for Its Close-Up—Again—and So Is Megan Hilty

22 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Forget Full House and Twin Peaks, we're ready for a Smash revival, and so is Megan Hilty. "If it were up to me [Laughs.], it would be on again," Hilty told us of a Smash revival. "Even with me not on it. I just think there's something really special about the concept of that show. I would hope so, but who knows." The canceled NBC musical drama about the making of a Broadway show ran for just two seasons and generated a ton of headlines—both favorable reviews heralding the show before it started based on an outstanding pilot and not-so great stories about the drama behind the scenes and uneven storylines—and starred Hilty as Broadway actress Ivy Lynn opposite Katharine McPhee as »

The Last Five Years Review

16 April 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Richard Lagravenese

Cast: Anna Kendrick, Jeremy Jordan

Certificate: 12A

Running time: 94 minutes

Synopsis: A struggling actress and her novelist lover each illustrate the struggle and deconstruction of their love affair.

There are two sides to every story, especially those involving the heart, but shall we begin at the beginning or at the end? The Last Five Years will give you both; but in doing so might muddle you into distraction.

Jamie Wellerstein (Jeremy Jordan) and Cathy Hiatt (Anna Kendrick) are an up-and-coming novelist (him) and struggling actress (her) whose five year relationship has had its’ ups and downs. Almost entirely through song, their highs and lows are presented to us in a non-linear arc. Cathy starts her story from the end of the relationship, focusing on the demise and the events leading to it whilst Jamie is more focused on the happier times; their early days as a couple. »

Welcome to my live-blog for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, the year's only kudosfest likely to make me perpetually check for the correct spelling of "Ansel Elgort." Sunday's (April 12) show is being hosted by Amy Schumer and offers the intrigue of Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne going against Zoe Saldana for Best On-Screen Transformation, but then makes you wonder how if Eddie Redmayne was eligible for stuff, he isn't up for Best Male Performance.

The Good Wife Recap: Caught in a Trap

5 April 2015 7:27 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Oh, we are all in trouble now.”

That very rare letting-down-of-the-guard from The Good Wife‘s Eli Gold refers, of course, to this week’s bombshell allegation accusing Alicia Florrick of voter fraud in her recent election win for the office of State’s Attorney. (Fret not: It looks like those racy leaked emails between her and her late lover Will are now just a minor chapter in 50 Shades of Things I Shouldn’t Have Typed Into a Computer.)

Celebrating cinema's 15 less famous killer robots

30 March 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Never mind The Terminator and Ed-209, what about Eve, Hector or Warbeast? Here's a pick of 15 less famous killer robots from the movies...

"They say Zapp Brannigan single-handedly saved the Octillion system from a horde of rampaging killbots!" enthused Leela in classic the Futurama episode, Love's Labour's Lost In Space.

It was, reflected the alcoholic, cigar-smoking robot Bender, "A grim day for Robotkind", before adding as an afterthought, "Eh, but we can always build more killbots."

Killer robots are a longstanding staple of science fiction cinema, and if we were to compile the list of the best and most celebrated, it would probably read pretty much like everyone else's - The Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Sentinels from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would all get a mention.

But what about the less famous killer robots from film history - the ones that have been largely eclipsed by »

How the Smash–Bombshell Concert Became the Most Successful Theater Kickstarter Campaign Ever

25 March 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

NBC’s musical series Smash was widely panned and only lasted two seasons, but two years after its final episode, its small but devoted contingent of fans are just as invested in its future. Earlier this month, the Actors Fund announced it would put on a Broadway benefit concert performance of Bombshell, the Marilyn Monroe musical workshopped over the course of Smash’s season that gave stars Megan Hilty and Katharine McPhee space to catfight and belt to the rafters. A Kickstarter for the show, which will play at the Minskoff Theatre on June 8, has now raised over $300,000, making it the most successful theater Kickstarter campaign ever. “We had no idea people wanted this to happen,” says Scott Wittman, who, with Marc Shaiman, wrote the majority of the songs on Smash, including all of Bombshell. “I knew there were a lot of female impersonators doing the numbers in nightclubs across the country, »
