Christian Bale Has All the Right Answers in This Exclusive 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Clip

Posted By Tim Hayne on November 11, 2014
Biblical epics tout huge set pieces, special effects, and grand drama, but they're also rife with intimate moments, as in this exclusive clip from the upcoming Ridley Scott-directed "Exodus: Gods and Kings," starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, and John Turturro. In the clip, Moses (Bale) and Zipporah (María Valverde) share a quiet moment...

Watch: 'Pitch Perfect 2' Trailer Is In the Key of Awesome (VIDEO)

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
In 2012, the a cappella-themed "Pitch Perfect," produced for $17 million and stocked with a cast of largely unknown actors, was released and became a sleeper smash. It wasn't an out-of-the-box sensation, but it grew through word-of-mouth and thanks to its unstoppably best-selling soundtrack album. When all was said and done, it amassed $113 million worldwide and sold tons and tons of copies on h...

The Biggest Blunders From Your Favorite Young Adult Movies

Posted By Jonny Black on November 11, 2014
"Young adult" is that awkward stage between adolescence and adulthood, when kids (if they let you call them that) make plenty of mistakes but are actually old enough to know better. But, unlike for their human counterparts, when YA movies make mistakes, they're on display for millions to see (and the internet to point them out). From "Twilight" to "Harry Potter," here are a few movie mistakes...

Oscar-Winning Director Mike Nichols Dies at 83

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
On Tina Fey's wonderfully weird "30 Rock," there was a running joke about how the megalomaniacal star Tracy Jordan (played, somewhat confusingly, by Tracy Morgan), was on the quest for achieving the mythical EGOT, meaning he wanted to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. He wanted to conquer the whole of the entertainment industry. Few have achieved this nearly mythical goal. But director Mike N...

Posted By Mehera Bonner on November 11, 2014
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night. "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" comes out this weekend, so naturally Jimmy Fallon sent one of his "Tonight Show" writers to the streets of New York City to ...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Recap, Episode 7: 'Test of Strength'

Posted By Jenni Miller on November 11, 2014
"American Horror Story: Freak Show" won't be back on until after Thanksgiving, but tonight's episode didn't feel very filling. Dandy's angry cry-face is pretty representative of the whole episode; there's lots of pouting and near-tantrums and Frances Conroy just needs to come in and regulate the whole damn mess. Let's just get started, shall we? That's Just Dandy Dandy (Finn Wittrock) a...

TV Land Pulls 'The Cosby Show' From Its Lineup

Posted By The Associated Press on November 11, 2014
DAVID BAUDER, AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) - NBC has scrapped a Bill Cosby comedy that was under development and TV Land will stop airing reruns of "The Cosby Show," moves that came a day after another woman came forward claiming that the once-beloved comic had sexually assaulted her.

8 TV Shows Cancelled After Just One Episode

Posted By Alana Altmann on November 11, 2014
There have been a few cancellations from the Fall 2014 crop of new shows so far (RIP, "Manhattan Love Story," "Selfie," and more ...), but the fate of many freshman programs still remains to be seen. Lucky for this season's roster, nothing was given the boot right off the bat. But it happens. Yes, sometimes even the most promising and promoted new series don't even made it past one night on a...

Blake Lively Never Grows Old in 'Age of Adaline' Trailer

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
In "The Age of Adaline," Blake Lively never has to wonder if someone will love when she's no longer young and beautiful - because she never ages. A new trailer takes us through the story of Adaline, a woman born in 1908 who suffers from a terrible car accident in the '30s. But something magical takes place that night, and suddenly, Adaline is "immune to the ravages of time." Decades pass; Ad...

Jennifer Lawrence Basically Has a Penis, According to Elizabeth Banks

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks are delightful on their own. Together, their charm is exponentially multiplied. Really, it's nearly unbearable. (Nearly!) Banks hosted her "Hunger Games" co-star on her web chat show, "Ask a Badass," and it's clear that blondes really do have more fun. At least, when they're Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks. At one point, after talking about the lac...

NBC Dumps Bill Cosby Sitcom

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
NBC is scrapping plans to develop a sitcom starring Bill Cosby, in light of recent rape accusations. The network has decided to pull the plug on the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter, despite much fanfare last year when it was first announced. Cosby was to play the patriarch of a family with three grown daughters with children of their own. There was a significant penalty to be paid if ...

'Gotham' Will Introduce Pre-Natal Robin, But Not Harley Quinn

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
With Bruce Wayne being just a pre-teen on Fox's "Gotham," his eventual sidekick, Robin, must be just a glimmer in his parents' eyes. And that's exactly what he will be, showrunner Bruno Heller tells Entertainment Weekly. "We're going to do a prenatal origin story for Robin down the line," Heller reveals. "There's an episode coming up where we learn how Robin's parents got together." (Let's hope...

Stream the 'Annie' Soundtrack on Spotify Now

Posted By Jenni Miller on November 11, 2014
Maybe the sun will come out tomorrow for "Annie" fans after all. Sia's Auto-Tuned take on "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile" had some of us scratching our heads, but fans of the original musical might feel a little better after listening to the full soundtrack on Spotify. All of the "Annie" songs received a few nips and tucks, but classics from the Broadway show, including "Maybe...

Here's a Track-by-Track Review of the 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Soundtrack

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
Every year for the past few years, a new "Hunger Games" movie has been unleashed on the world and those releases have come complete with a slew of tie-in merchandise, cunningly synergistic and essential in the studio's desire to build hype and awareness around the young-adult novel adaptations (which star Jennifer Lawrence and are based on books by Suzanne Collins, of course). But the soundtrac...

Check Out This Dreamy First Trailer For Disney's 'Cinderella' (VIDEO)

Posted By Jenni Miller on November 11, 2014
If this first trailer is any indication, director Kenneth Branagh's live-action version of "Cinderella" looks pretty posh indeed. Although it doesn't seem to stray too far from Disney's old animated tale, it offers up some tasty eye candy and two scenery-chewing performances by Cate Blanchett as the delightfully wicked Lady Tremaine and Helena Bonham Carter as Cinderella's Fairy Godmother. There...

Hot Rumor: Chris Pratt to Star in 'Cowboy Ninja Viking'

Posted By Jenni Miller on November 11, 2014
Chris Pratt's charming performance as Star-Lord in "Guardians of the Galaxy" has created a box office juggernaut. Basically, we'd line up to see him in anything. The word on the street (read: the Internet) is that Pratt will star in "Cowboy Ninja Viking," an adaptation of the graphic novel by writer A.J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo. If Pratt does sign on to star, he'll play a counter-in...

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night. Jimmy Kimmel got to reveal People's new Sexiest Man Alive Tuesday night, but first he made the studio audience guess. He is not in a band. He does not like to driv...

Posted By Jenni Miller on November 11, 2014
On Monday night (Nov. 17, 2014) in NYC, Ava DuVernay and cinematographer Bradford Young presented a festival cut of "Selma," which premiered last week at AFI Fest to rave reviews and a standing ovation.
