The 18 Most Essential Mike Nichols Movies

Posted By Gary Susman on November 11, 2014
Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a roc...

Now the Studio Has Dropped Out of Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs Biopic, Too

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
What once sounded like a promising project is now in even more trouble: Studio Sony has put the Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic in turnaround, effectively ending its relationship with the film. The flick, to be based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography of the late Apple co-founder, has already gone through its fair share of upheaval recently, losing star Christian Bale and origin...

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...

Best of Late Night TV: Julianne Hough's Phases Of Drunkenness and Chris Christie's Dancing (VIDEO)

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...

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...

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...

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
