Flashback: Bill and Ted Battle the Grim Reaper by Playing 'Battleship'
The Bill & Ted fan community haven't had it easy over the past couple of decades. The only real content they've gotten to chew on since Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey left theaters in 1991 was the short-lived cartoon series Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures and a disastrous live-action Fox show that aired seven episodes in the summer of 1992 before being forever banished from the memory banks of every single person on the planet.

Making matters worse, series stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter pop up in the press every few months and

Kim Kardashian Addresses Aaliyah Costume Backlash, Says 'We Don't See Color In My Home'
Kim Kardashian West's Aaliyah Halloween costume came from a place of "love and respect" -- no matter what anyone else thinks.

The 37-year-old reality star addressed the backlash over the costume on her app on Friday, explaining to those who thought her costume was in poor taste that she was trying to dress "as a woman whom I will always admire."

"When I was deciding what I wanted to be for Halloween this year, I had a lot of ideas that I narrowed down to musical icons and my second costume was Aaliyah," Kardashian wrote of the singer, who tragically died in 2001 plane crash when she was 22 years old. "The look was inspired by what she wore in her 'Try Again' music video. I wore a custom bra top and J Brand leather pants. Ariel Tejada did my makeup and Chris Appleton did my hair."

How Andrew J. West Is Living His Own Fairy Tale on 'Once Upon a Time'

For a while, Andrew J. West was afraid he would be typecast as a villain — which is a funny notion to consider for anyone who has ever met him in real life.

The actor, who stars as the grown-up version of fairy tale hero Henry on ABC's rebooted Once Upon a Time, is perhaps best known for his role as the sadistic cannibal Gareth on AMC's The Walking Dead. After his four-episode arc ended, he joined the Freeform horror series Dead of Summer as what creator Edward Kitsis described as "Axl Rose leading a death cult of townies."

Vince Vaughn Reborn: Why the Actor Left Comedy Behind to Play a Badass in Brutal ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’

Vince Vaughn Reborn: Why the Actor Left Comedy Behind to Play a Badass in Brutal ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’
Brawl in Cell Block 99” introduces the retooled and muscle-plated Vince Vaughn 2.0 headfirst, his shaved and tattooed skull stomping away from the camera like an asteroid hurtling toward earth. Action Vaughn 2.0 has the same movie star qualities as the hunk of “Swingers”: the barreling 6’5″ frame, the deep-set eyes that convinced Rihanna to call him the sexiest man alive.

But now that Vaughn is 47, his powerful torso has the leather-knotted look of a man who spent his life pounding railroad spikes—no vanity abs here—and the exhausted shadows on his face say he’s seen too much. And that’s not just because he and “Cell Block” writer-director S. Craig Zahler just wrapped their second film together, “Dragged Across Concrete,” just four days before flying to Austin for the movie’s American premiere at Fantastic Fest. (It opens theatrically on October 6.)

Celebrating Tom Petty: Musicians and Celebrities Pay Tribute

Celebrating Tom Petty: Musicians and Celebrities Pay Tribute
Tom Petty passed away at the age of 66 today after going into cardiac arrest late Sunday night. Petty was one of the last great surviving songwriters of our time and the world is mourning right now, with many taking to social media to pay tribute to Petty. It's hard to think of a time when Tom Petty wasn't cool, he was always like the really awesome uncle that you had, but never got to hang out with. His voice spoke to generations; helping people mend broken hearts as teenagers all the way to dealing with mortality later in life.

Johnny Cash once told the humble Petty that, "You're a good man to ride the river with," something that Petty never took for granted. Cash then paid ultimate tribute by covering "I Won't Break Down" and turning it into his own song. It doesn't get much better than that, but for Thomas Earl Petty,

Exclusive: ‘Big Brother’ Host Julie Chen Reacts to Cody Voting for Josh and Winning ‘America’s Favorite’
“How do you like them apples?”

That’s Big Brother host Julie Chen’s reaction to Cody Nickson casting the deciding vote on Wednesday night’s season 19 finale, which saw Josh Martinez beat out front runner Paul Abrahamian for the $500,000 prize.

“They were like oil and water,” Julie says of Cody and Paul. “But the sad thing is, Paul wanted to work with Cody … but Cody has pride. This guy, I think, sees the world in black and white and he was like, no. I called it. I'm sticking to my original opinion, and I felt like it was a very personal and emotional jury that voted for Josh to win, to be honest. But, you know, Josh did work. It's not like he sat there -- he was not a floater. We didn't actually hear that term this summer. Though, some people did float.”

‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ Returns To Theaters With 3D Release

In the summer of 1991, Terminator 2: Judgment Day ruled the box office. The long awaited sequel brought back Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800 Terminator, and James Cameron, the series' creator, and featured a new song by the biggest rock band in the world at the time, Guns 'n Roses. The film utilized cutting edge technology in essentially creating a villain made of liquid metal (Robert Patrick), and went on to win four Academy Awards for it. Everything was bigger and badder in T2, and audiences ate it up to the tune of over $500 million in world wide box office numbers -- in 1991!

Now, the seminal classic sequel is coming back to theaters exclusively to AMC, with a brand new 3D cut, and some tweaks overseen by James Cameron himself. Cameron, who revolutionized the 3D technology with Avatar, still the biggest box office success ever, is
