Steven Manios Sr. Dies From Covid-19: Former Owner Of Century Precision Optics Was 82
Steven Manios Sr., a camera optics pioneer and former owner and president of Century Precision Optics, died on January 3 from complications of Covid-19. He was 82.

Manios was born in Athens, Greece on September 4, 1938 and lived through Greece’s Great Famine of 1941. He made the move to Los Angeles at 19 years old and became an apprentice to Chris Condon, a family friend and owner of Century Photo Supplies. He paid his dues during his early Hollywood career and developed top-notch skills as an optical craftsman. He would go on to buy the company from Condon in 197.

His career in Hollywood spanned five decades and during his life as an optics trailblazer, Manios developed numerous optical devices, including wide-angle and telephoto lenses, that became standard equipment in film and television production. He was awarded several U.S. patents and earned the patronage and friendship of many of the industry’s top cinematographers.

Hulu New Releases: August 2020

Hulu New Releases: August 2020
If you were concerned about there being a content drought in August due to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down Hollywood, you were…absolutely right in those concerns.

For its new releases in August 2020, Hulu is following Apple, Disney, and even Peacock’s lead in taking things nice and slowly. The vast majority of the notable offerings here are of the library variety. Hulu adds classic movies like Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Rain Man, and Top Gun on August 1. Those go along with the very much still-holds-up Casino Royale on August 31.

Hulu also has room for some interesting recent indie movies like Ordinary Love (Aug. 3) and Peanut Butter Falcon (Aug. 6). But when it comes to Hulu original content there’s not much going on. The unheralded Find Me in Paris debuts its third season on August 21. That is followed by original comedy The Binge on August 28. And that’s about it!

HBO Max New Releases: July 2020
HBO Max is set to enter into its second month of existence. And you know what that means: it’s Christmas in July!

HBO Max’s list of new releases for July 2020 is highlighted by one prominent Christmas movie: last year’s Emilia Clarke-starring Last Christmas. But the real cause for Christmas in July is all the exciting animated DC content coming our way on the first of the month. July 1 sees the arrival of just about every animated Batman project ever created. July 1 also features the arrival of just about every Justice League animated series ever created as well.

If that weren’t enough, July 1 is also when every live-action Superman movie (save for Man of Steel) makes it streaming debut. July is starting to look like a month where HBO Max establishes its real potential and geek culture bonafides…despite an at-times difficult rollout.

HBO Max Announces Over 175 New Movies/TV Shows For July
When HBO Max launched last month, DC fans hoped it would be the premiere place to go to watch all their favorite DC content.

As time goes on, though, more DC properties will end up on the site. Case in point: this July will see a whole heap of superhero content go up on HBO Max.

Below you can find the full list of every movie and TV series coming to HBO Now, Go and Max next month, broken down by day of release.

Hulu Announces Over 100 New Movies And TV Shows For June
There are a lot of popular streaming platforms to choose from, but Hulu has always stood alongside Netflix as one of the two essentials for households looking for diversity in content. In the past, they’ve been known for focusing more heavily on newer television content, while Netflix has always offered a larger selection of sought-after films. But now, it looks like Hulu’s June lineup is only going to continue the service’s recent trend of providing high quality movies to bring itself in line with their competitor.

First up, you can get wholesome with Mr. Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, which tells the story of an investigative journalist who learns some hard life lessons from one of television’s most beloved personalities. You can then supplement that wholesomeness with My Girl and My Girl 2 for some wonderful 90s nostalgia.

Hulu New Releases: June 2020

Hulu New Releases: June 2020
June 2020 is set to be a big month for the whole streaming Disney family. Not only will ESPN+ have the entirety of The Last Dance on its servers for late-adopting sports fans to catch up with, but Disney+ will be premiering its long-awaited Artemis Fowl film. Over on its biggest streaming service in Hulu, however, Disney is taking things a bit more slowly.

This month finds only three major original releases for Hulu. Animated medieval comedy Crossing Swords premieres on June 12, then Ya love story Love Victor and cooking show Taste the Nation with Padma Lakshmi both arrive on June 19. All in all, that’s not a bad haul for originals for the typically slow summer months.

June 1 sees a pretty impressive crop of movies coming to Hulu’s library as well. October Sky, The X-Files (1998), and Casino will all be ready to stream at the beginning of the month.

Which ‘American Idol’ runner-up did You say was robbed? The votes are in and it wasn’t even close [Poll Results]

Which ‘American Idol’ runner-up did You say was robbed? The votes are in and it wasn’t even close [Poll Results]
It’s been over 10 years since Adam Lambert famously lost the “American Idol” title to singer-songwriter Kris Allen and fans are still adamant he was robbed. In a recent poll we asked our readers which runner-up from the past 17 seasons of “Idol” most deserved to win and Lambert won by an absolute landslide. With 74% of the vote, he is by far the most beloved second-place finisher.

Finishing a distant second place in our poll with 8% of the vote was Season 2’s Clay Aiken, who lost to Ruben Studdard in the closest finale vote in “American Idol” history. Last year’s finalist Alejandro Aranda snagged 6% after losing to country singer Laine Hardy. Katharine McPhee finished in fourth place with 4% of voters who thought she should have defeated Taylor Hicks in Season 5.

‘The Masked Singer’ Reveals the Identity of Elephant: Here’s The Star Under the Mask

‘The Masked Singer’ Reveals the Identity of Elephant: Here’s The Star Under the Mask
Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched Season 3, episode 4 of “The Masked Singer,” which aired Feb. 19 on Fox.

That’s a wipe out for Tony Hawk. The skateboarding legend became the first celebrity in “Group B” to be unmasked on Season 3 of “The Masked Singer,” which aired on Wednesday night.

Hawk, who was disguised as the Elephant, performed The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love,” and the judges said he shredded. But it wasn’t enough to survive elimination.

“Coming from a non-singing background, I’ll give myself a ‘B,'” Hawk told Variety. “I think that I felt like I was in tune for the most part, and I remembered the lyrics, which is a frightening prospect. It’s very easy to mix up verses. I went with it the way I sing it in the car.”

None of the “Masked Singer” panel guessed Hawk,

Last week, I got to interview Devon Sawa about his role in the film Escape Plan: The Extractors. We delved into the role and his experiences, his upcoming films, and I got to gush a bit about my childhood crush on him. It was a great time. Check out the interview below:

Devon Sawa: Thank you so much. And you know what? That’s exactly how twelve year old me felt filming this movie with Sylvester Stallone. Not that I’m anything like Stallone. What I’m trying to say is thank you.

Here's What's Been Going on With Jtt Since His Teen Heartthrob Days

Here's What's Been Going on With Jtt Since His Teen Heartthrob Days
Every so often, we take a second to reflect on our celebrity crushes of yore, from boy band members to cute TV actors, and wonder: what the hell happened to them? An adorable heartthrob named Jonathan Taylor Thomas (affectionately known as Jtt) had a heyday in the '90s, taking over the covers of teenybopper magazines and making us swoon each week as Randy Taylor on the ABC sitcom Home Improvement. Between 1991 and 1999, Jtt's cute little face and floppy middle-parted hair was also featured in big-screen classics like Man of the House, Tom and Huck, Wild America, and I'll Be Home For Christmas, and he also lent his voice to Disney's The Lion King as young Simba. After a smooth run of success, Jonathan Taylor Thomas seemingly disappeared. Poof! In 2013, Jonathan opened up about his decision to leave the spotlight, telling People that he had "been going nonstop since I was 8 years old,

Who Is the Prince of '90s Heartthrobs? Rank Them So We Can Crown Him

Who Is the Prince of '90s Heartthrobs? Rank Them So We Can Crown Him
I'll never forget the moment I saw Jonathan Taylor Thomas waltz onto the screen in Wild America, still one of my favorite movies to this day. My 8-year-old self was smitten. And then I saw Mrs. Doubtfire. Although it technically debuted before Wild America, I'd never encountered Matthew Lawrence and I was weak at the knees once more. The '90s were a golden age of teen heartthrobs; our heartthrobs were movie and TV stars - the closest I ever got to interacting with Matthew Lawrence was doodling his name in my diary, not following his every move on Instagram as teens these days are capable of. Their inaccessibility in the '90s made them almost seem like demigods. Of course, my crushes were different than yours. So I've compiled a list of the most unforgettable '90s heartthrobs for you to rank - and maybe we'll finally find out who the crown prince of the '90s truly is. Even though they're no longer teen heartthrobs, we're guessing you won't be shocked to learn that these hunks have aged quite well.
