Cole Sprouse on How ‘Riverdale’ Transformed Him From Disney Child Star to Leading Man
Most child actors don’t thrive in Hollywood past puberty. Cole Sprouse opted out on his own terms. The 2005 hit Disney Channel sitcom “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” turned Cole and his twin brother, Dylan, into the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen of their generation. But after the series and its spinoff wrapped, Cole was ready for something new.

In 2011, Sprouse enrolled as a freshman at NYU. Over the next four years, he regained his anonymity, took photography classes, majored in archaeology and landed an entry-level job at a small laboratory in Brooklyn. “I was bagging artifacts,” says Sprouse, who is now 27. “And I got a call from my manager, who begged me to come back and audition for pilot season.” Sprouse made a deal. “If I don’t book anything, then I’m not going to do this anymore,” he recalls telling his manager. “And I gave her

Home Entertainment: ‘Five Feet Apart’ Digital Review

Vertigo Releasing

Taking a leaf out of The Fault In A Stars’ tear-jerking teen playbook, Five Feet Apart is the latest young-adult drama to tug at our heart-strings, a largely absorbing romantic tale about two people living with terminal Cf (cystic fibrosis) who fall in love in hospital.

Haley Lu Richardson is Stella Grant, a seventeen-year-old living with Cf, confined to an American treatment room. She largely governs herself, carefully, meticulously arranging her med cart, creating lists in a hand-written form in a notebook while pounding away on a keyboard creating apps in her room, and also constantly updating her followers on her condition and treatment with social video posts on YouTube. She meets Cole Sprouse’s fellow Cf sufferer Will, a rebellious artist who has been fortunate to land himself a spot on a drug trial. The two find an immediate attraction between them, a spark igniting and eventually,

Win Five Feet Apart on DVD

To mark the release of Five Feet Apart on 15th July, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

Stella Grant (Haley Lu Richardson) is every bit a seventeen-year-old… she’s attached to her laptop and loves her best friends. But unlike most teenagers, she spends much of her time living in a hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control – all of which is put to the test when she meets an impossibly charming fellow patient named Will Newman (Cole Sprouse).

There’s an instant flirtation, though restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction. Further complicating matters is Will’s potentially dangerous rebellion against his ongoing medical treatment. Stella gradually inspires Will to live life to the fullest,

MTV Movie & TV Awards Winners: The Complete List

  • Variety
The MTV Movie & TV Awards returned to television Monday, with host Zachary Levi and a number of pop culture favorites.

Dominating this year’s nominations with four apiece were front runners “Avengers: Endgame,” which took home the evening’s best movie award, and “Game of Thrones,” which won best show. The Oscar-nominated documentary “Rbg” also scored four nods but was overtaken by the evening’s best documentary winner “Surviving R. Kelly.”

This year’s show also featured three new categories: reality royalty (“Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta”), most meme-able moment (“The Bachelor”) and best real-life hero (Ruth Bader Ginsburg) in addition to the show’s new tradition — started in 2017 — which refrains from separating nominees by gender.

Additionally, Dwayne Johnson was honored with the Generation Award, and Jada Pinkett Smith took home the Trailblazer Award.

MTV Movie and TV Awards winners 2019: Full list of winners and nominees in every category
The 2019 MTV Movie and TV Awards were presented on Monday night, June 17, during a ceremony held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, and hosted by Zachary Levi. So who were the big winners? Scroll down for the complete list, updating live as they’re announced.

MTV has been giving out their fan-voted Golden Popcorn trophies since 1992, when James Cameron‘s blockbuster “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” was awarded Best Movie. For more than two decades these kudos only considered achievements on the big screen, but in 2017 TV shows were added to the mix. Now there are separate categories for Best Movie, Best Performance in a Movie, Best Show and Best Performance in a Show, while other categories mix all achievements together.

MTV Movie and TV Awards predictions 2019: Complete odds in all categories led by ‘Avengers,’ ‘Riverdale’ and more
“Avengers: Endgame” is tied as the most nominated film at the MTV Movie and TV Awards with four bids, and we think it’ll win all of them when the awards air on June 17: Best Movie, Best Hero (Robert Downey Jr.), Best Villain (Josh Brolin) and Best Fight (Captain America vs. Thanos). That’s according to the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users who have given us their forecasts here in our predictions center. Do you agree that the Marvel blockbuster will achieve a clean sweep?

These awards are decided by MTV fans voting online, so popularity counts for a lot, and it’s hard to get more popular than “Endgame,” which is the second-biggest moneymaker of all time domestically not accounting for inflation ($826 million), and the second-biggest worldwide too ($2.73 billion). In the last 13 years no movie has won without grossing at least $100 million at the domestic box office,

Will Noah Centineo be the next heartthrob to win Breakthrough Performance at the MTV Movie and TV Awards?

The MTV Movie and TV Awards are voted on by fans online, which is usually good news for teen idols with passionate fan bases. This year that could benefit Noah Centineo, the 23-year-old heartthrob who appeared on “The Fosters” for three years but broke through in 2018 and 2019 thanks to the Netflix rom-coms “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” “Sierra Burgess is a Loser” and “The Perfect Date.” He’s nominated for Best Breakthrough Performance for “All the Boys.” Is he bound to win?

Lots of young heartthrobs have won this award in the past, including James Van Der Beek (“Varsity Blues”), Orlando Bloom (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”), Zac Efron (“Hairspray”) and Robert Pattinson (“Twilight”). And the fact that Centineo has had such success on a platform like Netflix might also help him since that streaming service has such a wide reach and

Lionsgate Fourth Quarter Revenue Falls Below Wall Street Expectations

Lionsgate reported revenue for its fiscal fourth quarter on Thursday that fell shy of Wall Street expectations, as the film business experienced a 20% decline in revenue in 2018.

The film and TV company reported a net loss of $159 million, or a loss of 72 cents per share, after reporting earnings of 41 cents per-share during the same period a year ago. Wall Street analysts tracked by Yahoo Finance had forecast Lionsgate would report a loss of 6 cents per-share. The company said that when adjusted, however, it was per-share earnings of 11 cents.

Revenue for the quarter was $914 million, a decline compared with the same period a year ago, during which Lionsgate generated revenue of $1.04 billion. Analysts expected revenue to hit $949.44 million in the quarter.
