The actress admitted to being affected by certain reactions to Paul Feig's upcoming reboot.
"The fact there was so much controversy because we were women was surprising to me," Wiig told the Los Angeles Times.
"Some people said some really not nice things about the fact that there were women. It didn't make me mad, it just really bummed me out. We're really honouring these movies."
Wiig's comments follow Feig's last month where he slammed Twitter misogynists to "go f**k yourself".
The actress also responded to the continuous 'women in comedy' question, stating that the fact it gets asked "implies that it's something we need to explain or defend".
"If [people] would watch movies or look at comedy and see how many talented, funny women are out there and have been since the beginning of time, people would stop asking that, »
To celebrate the release of The Vampire Diaries: The Complete Sixth Season, available on Blu-ray™ and DVD from 26th October 2015, we have 3 Blu-rays to give away.
Season five saw Elena (Nina Dobrev – The Perks of Being a Wallflower, DeGrassi: The Next Generation) headed to Whitmore College with Caroline, not knowing Bonnie sacrificed her life for Jeremy’s. Meanwhile, Stefan and Caroline’s friendship deepened as they stood up to the Travelers, a nomadic witch tribe driven to strip Mystic Falls of magic and cast out its supernatural residents. In the shocking season finale, Damon, fearing he would lose his loved ones on the crumbling Other Side, made a huge sacrifice to bring them all back — with catastrophic and heartbreaking results.
In season six we follow the characters’ journey back to each other as they explore the duality of good versus evil inside themselves. Matt Davis reprises his role as Alaric Saltzman, »

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party has a new series full of cute creatures to delight viewers. To celebrate Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, the digital network teamed with the Aspca animal shelters to launch the pet-centric series Heavy Petting on October 14, 2015.
As the potentially risqué name suggests, Heavy Petting fittingly combines the idea of adopting or fostering a pet with finding the next love of your life. Each episode will take the form of a Tinder-style dating profile of one cat or dog from an Aspca shelter around the U.S. For added comedic effect, well-known Hollywood names will lend their voices to the animals. The first episode features comedian John Mulaney as the voice of Bart the mixed breed puppy. Future pets will be voiced by acting talent like Ike Barinholtz, Aziz Ansari, Paul Scheer, Nick Offerman, and Aubrey Plaza (who’s no stranger to giving »

With Gamescom in Europe and E3 in North American now over, it’s now Japan’s turn to put on a good show. The Tokyo Game Show is traditionally seen as the East’s equivalent to the two former events, and it looks like Sony’s gearing up for a massive presence at this year’s event. Along with a whole host of PlayStation 4 titles announced for the event, Sony have even got some Vita titles on the cards.
The full list is below, but you can probably expect some currently unannounced titles to make their way into the show too.
Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir (Atlus) Star Wars Battlefront (Electronic Arts) Street Fighter V (Capcom) Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (Koei Tecmo) Winning Eleven 2016 (Konami) Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness (Square Enix) Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky (Spike Chunsoft) Call of Duty: Black Ops III (Sony Computer Entertainment »

It has been easy to rip into the Madden NFL franchise over the past decade or so. Ever since the exclusive deal with the National Football League was made back in 2004, the franchise has been mercilessly called out for stagnant gameplay and little year to year improvement. Some of this criticism has been warranted, of course, however, it can sometimes feel like people are bashing on it because it is popular franchise that doesn’t need to change due to its massive sales. That hasn’t stopped EA Tiburon from constantly tweaking the formula, though, with this year’s Madden NFL 16 representing another year forward for the series.
Before you even get the chance to hop into training camp or online play, Madden throws you into a semi-scripted SuperBowl 50 match-up between pre-season contenders, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals. Playing like a more advanced version of last year’s Panthers/Seahawks showdown, »

In the previous episode of Extant, the Humanich army launched an attack on the hybrid community that resulted in many deaths. During the attack, they released the hybrid-killing virus and Molly's son became infected. Molly went to great lengths to try to save her son, but the virus was too advanced and he passed away. Meanwhile, Jd turned himself in to the Gsc in order to get his daughter released, everyone learned the truth about Lucy's manipulation, Lucy attacked Julie and Ethan had to "kill" her, and Molly started showing symptoms of the virus.
In this episode, "The Other Side," Molly experiences strange dreams thanks to the virus that is quickly taking her life. These dreams bring up a long buried memory from her childhood. Meanwhile, the surviving hybrids seek revenge for the attack on their community, and Louis Gossett, Jr. returns as Molly's father.
Recently, CBS released the new, official synopsis/spoilers for their upcoming "Extant" episode 9 of season 2. The episode is entitled, 'The Other Side," and it turns out that we're going to see some pretty intense and high drama stuff go down as Julie has to make a hard choice. The Hybrids come looking for vengeance, and more! In the new, 9th episode press release: As Molly Succumbs To The Virus, Long-forgotten Memories Surface. Press release number 2: As Molly succumbs to the virus, long forgotten memories are going to surface. Also, Julie is going to get confronted with hard choices and the Hybrids will seek revenge. Guest stars feature: David Morrissey (Tobias Shepherd), Goran Visnjic (John Woods), Tyler Hilton (Charlie Arthurs) and Lou Gossett Jr. (Quinn). The episode was written by Les Bohem, and it was directed by Kevin Dowling. Episode 9 is set to air on Wednesday night, August 19th »
TV show trailer for CBS‘ Extant episode The Other Side. Molly (Halle Berry) got back into Gsc custody just in time, it seems, for the other shoe to drop, regarding Tobias’ (David Morrissey) two front approach to wiping out the Hybrids. As if seditious androids weren’t bad enough, now it looks like the viral solution is set to misbehave […] »

It started in 2005 with a double-sided DVD, found by a friend in the bargain bin of a local discount shop. On one side was The Independent, a Jerry Stiller comedy about a B-movie director (“excruciatingly unamusing” – The Miami Herald). The other side didn’t look terribly promising, either: the film’s title, Wet Hot American Summer, sounded like top-shelf smut. On its sleeve was what looked like a crudely drawn knock-off of a National Lampoon poster. It seemed at best like it would be a bawdy, brainless comedy in the manner of the 80s cult favourite Porky’s, and at worse its sequel, Porky’s Revenge.

The original plans for Sting at SummerSlam was for him to team with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose against the reunited Wyatt Family trio of Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. That’s not going to happen now because Rowan’s out of action for several months due to a torn biceps.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the six man tag is likely going to happen with somebody replacing Rowan.
There’s a lot of speculation about who the partner of the Wyatt Family will be with the obvious name being Bo Dallas just because he’s the real life brother of Bray. The problem with that is that WWE may not want to change Dallas because he’s got his own gimmick already. The other side of it is that his comedy heel gimmick isn’t really going to get him that far, so a change could be good for him. »

Prince George has already gotten an early birthday gift! Prince William and Kate Middleton's son, who turns two years old next week on July 22, has been honored with a special limited edition commemorative coin produced by England's Royal Mint. The sterling silver £5 coin features an image of Christian martyr Saint George battling the mythical dragon and was reimagined by artist Christopher Le Brun. The other side features the current portrait of George's great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II done by Jody Clark. "The choice of the St. George design to honor Prince George's birthday is an apt one—the name George has long had links with the British monarchy and its coinage, there »
Two up-and-coming Native talents, Razelle Benally (Navajo/Oglala Lakota) and Randi LeClair (Pawnee) have been selected for the Sundance Institute Native Filmmakers Lab, where the two writers will receive grants for production and targeted support during a residential Lab to prepare for production of their short films.
The Lab takes place in Santa Fe, New Mexico July 10-14. The Lab is a highlight of the Institute’s year-round work with Native American and Indigenous filmmakers and is one of the 24 residential labs the Institute hosts each year to discover and foster the talent of emerging independent artists in film, theater, new media and more recently episodic content.
The Native Filmmakers Lab builds on the Institute’s former NativeLab to include grants to support production of the Fellows’ short films – a first for the Institute’s renowned independent artist Labs. The writers and directors serving as Creative Advisors for this year’s Lab include: Janicza Bravo ("Gregory Go Boom" and "Pauline Alone"), Beck Cole ( "Plains Empty" and "Here I Am" ), Sydney Freeland ("Drunktown's Finest" and "HoverBoard" ), Aurora Guerrero ( "Pura Lengua" and "Mosquita y Mari" ) and Lucas Leyva ( "#PostModem" and "Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke" ).
N. Bird Runningwater (Cheyenne/Mescalero Apache), director of the Sundance Institute Native American and Indigenous Program, said, “Our Native Filmmakers Lab responds to the unique need within our community to support Native American artists with grants and mentorship focusing on the crucial phase of producing their films. I am excited to embark on this creative journey with these two bright female directors as they begin the tactical phase of creating their films.”
The Native Filmmakers Lab will be followed by the inaugural Native Writers Workshop, jointly hosted by Sundance Institute and the Institute of American Indian Arts (Iaia). The Workshop will support six emerging Native storytellers who seek to share their voices in film and television: Gabe Abeyta (Taos Pueblo and Navajo from Santa Fe, Nm), Katie Avery (Iñupiaq from Los Angeles, CA), Kelly D'Angelo (Haudenosaunee from Los Angeles, CA), Felicia Nez (Navajo from Albuquerque, Nm), Blue Tarpalechee (Muscogee from Santa Fe, Nm) and Kaherawaks Thompson (St. Regis Mohawks of Akwesasne from Memphis, Tn).
They will be mentored by: Beck Cole (Writer, "Here I Am" and "Black Comedy" ), Jason Gavin (Writer, "Greek, "Friday Night Lights"), Derek Santos Olson (Writer, "Friday Night Lights" ), Sierra Ornelas (Writer, "Selfie" and "Happy Endings" ), Alex Rivera (Writer/Director, "Sleep Dealer" ) and Joan Tewkesbury (Writer, "Nashville" and "Thieves Like Us" ).
True to founder Robert Redford’s original vision, the Institute maintains a strong commitment to supporting Native and Indigenous filmmakers. The Native program has built and sustained a unique support cycle for Indigenous artists through grants, labs, mentorships, a fellowship program at the Sundance Film Festival, and screenings for Native communities to inspire new generations of storytellers. Currently operating programs in the United States, Canada, and formerly New Zealand and Australia, the Institute has established a rich legacy of work by supporting more than 300 Native and Indigenous filmmakers, including Taika Waititi, Chris Eyre, Sterlin Harjo, Billy Luther, Andrew Okpeaha MacLean, Aurora Guerrero, Sydney Freeland and Yolanda Cruz.
There are the two artists/projects selected for the 2015 Native Filmmakers Lab:
"I Am Thy Weapon"
Razelle Benally (Navajo/Oglala Lakota)
A young artistic Navajo woman relives memories of her deceased sister, that in turn help her heal and battle against the modern-day adversities of reservation life.
Razelle Benally is of Oglala Lakota and Navajo blood. Benally’s firsthand experience while filming and traveling with renowned skateboard company Apache Skateboards has helped her hone a self-developed style of editing and directing. She most notably gained acclaim for her short documentary "The Humble," and six-minute experimental piece "Love is a Losing Game." Benally is one of five young women featured in the 2011 documentary, "Apache Chronicle."
She has shown in galleries in Long Beach, CA and in Phoenix, Az. Her films have been shown nationally and internationally at select screenings in Portland, Winnipeg Manitoba Canada, and Sweden. She earned a third place award in the 2007 Aihec Film Festival, and is the 2010 Santa Fe Indian Market jury-awarded winner for Best Documentary in Swaia’s Classification X. Benally is an alumna of the 2012 Sundance Institute Native Filmmakers Lab.
"The Other Side of the Bridge"
Randi LeClair (Pawnee)
After two high school football stars are found dead, decade’s long racial tensions sizzle in a small-town diner.
Randi LeClair is an enrolled member of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma. She graduated from Oklahoma State University with a BA in English (Creative Writing) and is currently a graduate student in the University of Oklahoma’s Master of Professional Writing program. Recently, Randi and her husband, Todd, signed an option agreement for the screen adaptation of Todd’s book, "60 Feet Six Inches and Other Distances from Home: The (Baseball) Life of Mose YellowHorse," which follows the story of Pittsburg Pirates pitcher Mose YellowHorse, the first full-blood American Indian in the major leagues.
In addition to screenwriting, Randi also engages her love of literary fiction and is currently working on a collection of short stories. As well, she also serves as co-editor for "Out of the Stars: An Anthology of Pawnee Writing, Stories, and Art." Her dream is to help bring Native Cinema to the mainstream. She is an alumna of the 2010 Sundance Institute Native Filmmakers Lab. »
