New Captive State Trailer Drops John Goodman Into an Alien Invasion

New Captive State Trailer Drops John Goodman Into an Alien Invasion
A new trailer for the mysterious sci-fi thriller Captive State starring John Goodman and Vera Farmiga has arrived online. A trailer was also released last month but, so far, it looks like the studio really wants to keep this movie largely under wraps until it's released. There are some strange vibes going on here and, based on this latest tease, it looks like they've thrown a Cloverfield movie and an entry in The Purge franchise in a blender. Done the right way, that could prove to be very entertaining.

The trailer starts by pointing out how strong and well off America is, with a mysterious voice disputing the factuality of these claims. We then see a bunch of quick cuts of disastrous events breaking out, seemingly at the behest of a mysterious, unidentified force. The unknown presence notes "the Phoenix will rise." We're guessing that mysterious force has something to

Paramount Is Planning 2 Very Different Star Trek Movies

Paramount Is Planning 2 Very Different Star Trek Movies
Not one, but two new Star Trek movies are being developed by Paramount. We've known for a bit now that the studio was working on at least a couple of different new Trek related projects, but now Paramount head Jim Gianopulos has confirmed that two different movies in the franchise are in active development, news that was announced during CinemaCon in Las Vegas this past week. Unfortunately, he didn't dish any additional details, but this makes for an interesting confirmation, considering what we already know.

Starting with the more recent development, it came to light in December that Quentin Tarantino is working on a Star Trek Movie with J.J. Abrams. The Pulp Fiction director pitched the idea to Abrams and the duo then took it to Paramount. The studio then assembled a writer's room to flesh out the idea and, ultimately, Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) was hired to pen

Star Trek 4 Makes Franchise History with First Female Director

Star Trek 4 Makes Franchise History with First Female Director
S.J. Clarkson is about to boldly go where no female director has ever gone before, to take the helm of a Star Trek movie. Paramount Pictures announced during their CinemaCon panel today that they are currently developing two separate Star Trek movies, one of which is being developed by Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams, but sources say that project is still being written and would come after Star Trek 4, which S.J. Clarkson has signed on to direct. Star Trek 4 had been in the works for nearly two years, but after Tarantino's Star Trek project got some steam, it wasn't clear if Star Trek 4 would happen, until today, with S.J. Clarkson becoming the first ever female director to take the helm of a Star Trek movie.

Star Trek 4 was first revealed in July 2016, just days before the release of Star Trek Beyond. There were rumors that Chris Hemsworth would

Diane Lane cast in The Romanoffs from Matthew Weiner

Diane Lane has been cast in one of Amazon’s latest projects, from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner. Lane will star in The Romanoffs, a one-hour anthology series set around the globe featuring separate stories about people who believe they are descendants of the Russian royal family.

Weiner is set to direct all the episodes in the series as well as writing and producing. The Romanoffs will premiere on Amazon Prime sometime next year. Recently the show became entangled in the ever-growing Harvey Weinstein scandal as The Weinstein Company was also producing the series. Amazon decided to sever its ties with TWC and develop the series on their own rather than as a co-production between studios.

Other actors who will star in the series include Aaron Eckhart (Sully), Isabelle Huppert (Elle), Marthe Keller (Marathon Man), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), John Slattery (Mad Men), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Amanda Peet (Togetherness

Second Woman, Actress Jordana Grolnick, Accuses President George H.W. Bush of Groping Her
Actress Jordana Grolnick has become the second woman to accuse former President George H.W. Bush of sexual harassment. The actress says she met Bush in August 2016 on the set of a Maine production of “Hunchback of Notre Dame.” He allegedly came backstage during intermission and fondled her while taking a photo with the cast. Grolnick claims Bush told her that his favorite magician was “David Cop-a-Feel” while he was groping her.

“We all circled around him and Barbara for a photo, and I was right next to him,” Grolnick told Deadspin. “He reached his right hand around to my behind, and as we smiled for the photo he asked the group, ‘Do you want to know who my favorite magician is?’ As I felt his hand dig into my flesh, he said, ‘David Cop-a-Feel!’”

George H. W. Bush has apologized again through a spokesman after a second actress accused the former president of groping her in 2016.

“At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures,” read a statement from Bush’s office on Wednesday.

“To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke — and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner,” the statement continued. “Some have seen it as

Evelyn Lozada Marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month With ‘Turn Hurt Into Joy’ Campaign (Exclusive)
Evelyn Lozada is marking Domestic Violence Awareness Month by turning a "negative" situation "into a positive."

On Monday, the 41-year-old reality star, in connection with the Evelyn Lozada Foundation, launched the Turn Hurt Into Joy online campaign to raise money for charities that help survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault throughout the month of October.

The campaign, which will reward a lucky winner (who will be chosen in November) with an original Ines Di Santo wedding gown, is a “testament that a negative can be transformed into a positive,” Lozada tells Et.

“Several years ago, I wore a beautifully crafted Ines Di Santo original design as I prepared to enter into one of the most sacred and memorable unions of my life,” she explains of her short marriage to former NFL player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, which ended after the onetime professional athlete head-butted her during a verbal argument. “I was married in 2012, three weeks later I was in
