Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Are Adorable on Roller-Skating Night Out
Could Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard be any cuter? On Saturday, the married couple enjoyed a fun night out at the Moonlight Rollerway roller-skating rink in Glendale, north of Los Angeles. The two were joined by a few friends, including Bell's former Veronica Mars co-star, Ryan Hansen. He played Dick Casablancas on the cult show, and also starred with Bell and Shepard in the star's comedy films Hit and Run and Chips. "Tonight, @daxshepard rented a roller skating rink," the actress wrote on Instagram stories. "And I had one of the best nights of my life." "Incredible night at @officialmoonlightrollerway- not a single broken bone!" Bell...

AFM: Nigerian Film Industry Looks to Work With Hollywood Partners

AFM: Nigerian Film Industry Looks to Work With Hollywood Partners
Nollywood and Hollywood will come together this year for the first Nigerian Intl. Film Summit during the American Film Market in the Loews Santa Monica.

The event brings together some of Nigeria’s top exhibitors, distributors, producers and movie stars with their Hollywood counterparts for what founder Ijeoma Onah hopes will be an opportunity to spark dialogue on how the two industries can work together.

“The gap between Hollywood and Nollywood is closing,” says Onah, who previously managed Africa relations for the Afm, and helped establish the first Nigerian pavilion at Mipcom. “We’re looking at how to bridge that gap.”

The summit looks to educate foreign investors on the growth potential of the Nigerian market, while also exploring opportunities to distribute its films globally. A pitch session will feature projects in development that are searching for foreign co-producers.

Keynote addresses will be delivered by Nigerian culture minister Lai Mohammed, and [link=nm

'Twin Peaks' Recap: Cell-Bye Date
Is your heart still pounding? Culminating in the escape of Agent Dale Cooper's doppelganger, tonight's Twin Peaks was tense and terrifying enough to leave you freaked out long after "Sleep Walk" on the Double R's jukebox brought the credits to a close. But before we talk about all that, let's take a look at the dogs that didn't bark. Throughout the episode, co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost utilize the show's usual ingredients for creating supernatural suspense. The results they produce this time out, however, are completely different.

CHiPs movie review: they promised chip would happen, and it did

MaryAnn’s quick take… Toilet humor, cars exploding for no reason, random naked boobies, and gay panic… although, weirdly, also lots of awkward, unerotic nearly naked Dax Shepard. I’m “biast” (pro): enjoyed the TV show, but I was like eight then

I’m “biast” (con): enough with the reboots

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

In 2011, the comedian and actor Dax Shepard made his feature debut with the mockumentary Brother’s Justice. In it, he plays a version of himself as — in the words of Gary Goldstein in the Los Angeles Times — “an impulsive, clueless narcissist on a journey to reinvent himself as an action star.” The plot involves Shepard running around Hollywood trying to raise money to make a cash-grab action movie starring himself. His 2012 second feature as writer and director (and star), action comedy Hit and Run, might have looked like a fulfillment of that dream,

Review: ‘CHiPs’ is a Frantic, Lowbrow Action-Comedy

Borrowing character names and a few elements from the Larry Wilcox- and Erik Estrada-led television drama CHiPs, Dax Shepard’s remake feels more like a big-budget reboot of his delightful shit-kicking action comedy Hit and Run. His sophomore feature as a director delivers, fittingly, a few sophomoric laughs operating at the same frantic energy level as his previous film. Although its structure is similar to that of a loose Judd Apatow sensibility (which can be quite painful, as was the “extended cut” of the 40-Year-Old Virgin), CHiPs is a buddy comedy that’s more interested in homosocial bonding than the actual mission. The problem is the bonding, as sweet as it is, grows a little tiring and the film is structured so that we’re far ahead of our heroes, and where’s the fun in that?

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Will Overpower ‘Power Rangers’ and Other Openers

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Will Overpower ‘Power Rangers’ and Other Openers
How big will Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” be?

Continuing to forge ahead after its record-breaking opening gross last weekend, the live-action remake should outgross three new releases by about 150 percent. It’s unfair to judge any of the new titles against juggernaut “Beauty,” which has already amassed $206 million (unprecedented for pre-May) in its first five days domestic, $428 million worldwide. This weekend “Beauty and the Beast” looks to fall somewhere in the $80-100 million range and should hit a staggering $300 million in its first ten days.

This makes it hard for any newcomers to make much impact.

Lionsgate’s $100 million reboot of “Power Rangers” will easily outpace Sony’s latest outer space adventure “Life” as well as Warner Bros.’ remake of 1970s California Highway Patrol TV hit “Chips.”

Exclusive: Dax Shepard on Casting Kristen Bell as a 'Sh*thead' and Directing His Own Nude Scene

Exclusive: Dax Shepard on Casting Kristen Bell as a 'Sh*thead' and Directing His Own Nude Scene
Not 24 hours before I met up with Dax Shepard to discuss his CHiPs reboot (or as it's now called, Chips), Kristen Bell had done the same, interviewing her husband and their costar, Michael Peña, as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight. That's a tough act to follow, and even more so after hearing how she did from Shepard: "Much hotter than your average host, I gotta say," he deadpanned. "I don't actually know who she was replacing, so that's not directly comparing her to someone else. But any question that she asks goes down with a spoonful of sugar."

Despite the taste of my questions (salty?), Shepard happily discussed his wife and how she ended up playing a "sh*thead" in his movie, the perks of casting famous friends, and hard-r ratings -- it's the same Chips you love, now with more dick jokes!

Power Rangers Won’t Give Beauty And The Beast Much Trouble -- The Weekend Warrior

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

So we’re going to try something different this week, because the Weekend Warrior has been getting a little long in the tooth, and we’re worried that our busy readers may prefer shorter and more concise pieces. We’ll give this a try over the next few weeks and maybe I’ll write a little more when there’s a bigger movie opening.

How Will Power Rangers and Two Other Movies Fare Against Disney’s Beauty and the Beast?

This past weekend, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast reigned supreme with nearly $175 million--over $20 million more than my prediction (ouch!)--and even with a substantial drop this weekend, it’s unlikely that any of the three new movies will be able to

CHiPs Red Band Trailer Gets Raunchy with Ponch and Jon

CHiPs Red Band Trailer Gets Raunchy with Ponch and Jon
Though it's another raunchy, R-rated take on a classic TV show, CHiPs hasn't gotten the same kind of promotional push as this year's Baywatch. An adults only update on the hit adventure series from the late 70s, CHiPs will be in theaters in less than a month, and we've barely heard anything about it. Following the first trailer released just weeks ago, Warner Bros. has delivered a go-for-broke red band sneak peek that is sure to tease, tantalize, and really get a few old school fans worked up. This isn't the CHiPs your grandparents used to know!

Jon Baker and Frank "Ponch" Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a professional motorbike rider who's trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky, undercover FBI agent who's investigating a multimillion dollar heist that may be an inside job.

Set Visit: Everything you need to know about CHiPs! Action! Stunts! Nudity!

  • JoBlo
A few years back, writer/director/actor Dax Shepard offered up a pretty cool action comedy called Hit And Run. The one thing that always struck me about the independent film is how surprisingly awesome the action and the car chases happened to be. So when I first heard that he was taking on a reinterpretation of the classic Seventies series Chips, frankly I was very curious about what he could do with it.... Read More...

Ponch and Jon Return in CHiPs Movie Character Posters

Ponch and Jon Return in CHiPs Movie Character Posters
Warner Bros. has released two new character posters for the highly-anticipated CHiPs remake, featuring the new Jon Baker (Dax Shepard) and Frank 'Ponch' Poncherello (Michael Pena). While these officers may certainly be unorthodox, Ponch has a "mind for action" while Jon possesses and "appetite for justice," although these posters don't necessarily reflect that. Jon is seen spilling his lunch on his uniform, while Ponch is seen holding a woman's bra. They're clearly two of the California Highway Patrol's finest.

The movie is based on the original TV series of the same name, where motorcycle officers Jon Baker (Larry Wilcox) and Frank "Ponch" Poncherello (Erik Estrada) cruised the freeways of Los Angeles, solving crimes and helping people in trouble. The show debuted on NBC on September 15, 1977 and ran for 6 seasons. While the season finale aired in May 1983, Ponch and Jon would return more than a decade later. Stars Erik Estrada and

CHiPs Movie Trailer: Ponch and Jon Are Back

CHiPs Movie Trailer: Ponch and Jon Are Back
Warner Bros. recently bumped up the release of their upcoming R-rated take on the buddy cop show CHiPs, which means a couple of things. One, the studio seems to have some confidence in the movie and two, they really need to start marketing it. That being the case, the first trailer for the upcoming CHiPs movie has arrived, and it is big on action and comedy.

A little tease for this first trailer was revealed earlier by the Warner Bros. Twitter account which showed a lot of motorcycle stunts wrapped in laughs, which makes it appear as though CHiPs will make good use of its R-rating. Warner Bros. also announced that the first trailer would debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and as promised, it did. We now have a good idea of what this new take on the material from director Dax Shepard, who is also starring in the movie,
