Debra Messing Does Not Want Your Unsolicited Dick Pics

17 November 2015 3:18 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Here's the thing: Women don't want your unsolicited dick pics sent to them. But you know who really doesn't want them in her inbox? Debra Messing. Messing took to Twitter this week to admonish an Instagram user for sending her a photo of his penis on Instagram. The dick pic in question came through her direct messages and it was definitely unsolicited.And just to make sure people knew Messing didn't find the dick pic amusing in the slightest, she shared a pixelated version of the Dm and reminded people to respect women more and not send them unsolicited dick pics. And really, Messing could choke you to death with any of the scarves she wore on the set of Smash, so listen to her warning. »

26 October 2015 6:27 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Earth doesn’t have just one hero anymore. Now, it has Supergirl.”

You’ve watched the commercials. You’ve seen the billboards and bus-stop posters in your neighborhood. You’ve even gotten Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” stuck in your head for no apparent reason. (All together now: “Like a small boat, on the ocean…”)

Now, after months of marketing, the highly anticipated Supergirl premiere has arrived — and we want your thoughts on the CBS drama’s debut. But first, a recap of what went down in the first hour:

Supergirl Review: CBS Drama Powered by Smart Casting, Sense of Awe

23 October 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

When CBS’ Supergirl officially and finally takes flight (Monday at 8:30/7:30c), it will have been a full five months since the superhero series’ pilot first leaked online.

A second episode has not yet been made available to press, so there’s nothing groundbreaking left to say about the freshman drama. But a fresh viewing of the latest, double-secret official, for-broadcast pilot did affirm where and how it absolutely flies, and the one or two places it proves to be not impervious.

Code Black: Did CBS' Hectic Hospital Drama Get Your Pulse Racing?

30 September 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

In case you couldn’t tell from the above photo, CBS’ new medical drama Code Black is all about controlled chaos. Angels Memorial Hospital is frantic, intense and overwhelming.

With an influx of patients so great, there often aren’t enough resources to treat them — a situation known as “code black” — there’s no time for hooking up in the on-call room. An attending even tells two bickering docs, “If nobody’s taking their clothes off, I need you both on the floor now.”

‘Quantico’ Review: Priyanka Chopra Scores in Silly Spy Drama

27 September 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Beautiful people and juicy twists await the viewer of “Quantico,” but also a lot of silliness. Created by Joshua Safran, a former showrunner on “Smash” and executive producer on “Gossip Girl,” this drama-thriller wants to be a sleek, edgy mystery in which a talented FBI recruit (striking Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, making her American television debut) must track down who’s responsible for a deadly New York terrorist attack before federal authorities catch her first, believing she’s the perpetrator. But for a show about highly trained, incredibly intelligent agents, “Quantico’s” pilot often succumbs to lame-brained plotting and a less-than-convincing portrayal. »

Ratings: NBC’s ‘Blindspot’ Opens Big; Fox’s ‘Minority Report’ Soft

22 September 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The broadcast networks were off and running as they kicked off another season on Monday, with NBC dominating behind “The Voice” and a hot start for “Blindspot,” which topped the combined demo scores of veteran timeslot competitors “Castle” and “NCIS: Los Angeles.” CBS had the night’s top show in “The Big Bang Theory,” and its new comedy “Life in Pieces” had a decent bow behind it, but Fox’s “Minority Report” opened quietly.

Meanwhile, two of last fall’s biggest drama newcomers — CBS’ “Scorpion” and Fox’s “Gotham” — were down as expected from their strong starts of last year but the Eye program held up better vs. its average from last winter and spring.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Blindspot” was the clear standout among the night’s three premieres, averaging a 3.1 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 10.6 million viewers overall in the 10 o’clock hour. Though »

“You can definitely be assured that Team Scorpion will be solving the world’s problems one episode at a time,” Katharine McPhee said of the second season of Scorpion, the CBS drama about a squad of high-tech geniuses who use advanced brainpower to tackle things like biohacking, nuclear meltdowns and arms dealing. But the 31-year-old singer-turned-actress, who first burst into the public eye in the fifth season of “American Idol” before moving to the musical drama Smash and then Scorpion, also promised viewers that a lighter tone will occasionally prevail, as will the romance between her character, single mother Paige. »

A Spoonful of Sugar Will Make Disney’s New Mary Poppins Musical Go Down

14 September 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. For Disney executives whose job it is to dream up new versions of the company's classic films, "fun" looks like a new Mary Poppins musical from Rob Marshall, with Smash's Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman writing the songs. EW reports that the musical will be based on the later novels in P.L. Travers's Poppins series, but that the project is "decidedly not being developed as a sequel," whatever that means. Regardless, it looks like Tom Hanks was more convincing than we thought. »

Disney Is Making a New 'Mary Poppins' Musical

14 September 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Mary Poppins" is coming back to the big screen: Disney is working on a new, original musical starring its classic magical nanny.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the film is already moving through the development stages, with director Rob Marshall ("Chicago," "Into the Woods") at the helm. Marshall will re-team with his "Into the Woods" producers John DeLuca and Marc Platt for the project, which is set to be a new musical adventure featuring the Poppins character -- and not a direct sequel to the famous 1964 version.

Per EW:

The new Poppins film will take place in Depression-era London, some 20 years after Disney's classic Mary Poppins, and will draw from existing Poppins tales in the rest of author P.L. Travers' 1934-1988 children's book series. The practically perfect 1964 screen adaptation starring Julie Andrews pulled its story primarily from the first installment in Travers' eight-book series; the new project (which is decidedly »

Have Jurassic Dinosaurs Truly Kicked Marvel Superheroes Butt at Worldwide Box Office?

25 July 2015 9:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, "officially" just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, "But which movie has actually sold the most tickets?" After all, that's the true measure of a film's popularity. Well, that's a tough one to answer without the studios providing accurate, precise numbers. And that's not about to happen. It always »
