Okay, this is just getting silly -- another major Hollywood award ceremony, another victory for Ben Affleck and 'Argo,' this time at the Director's Guild of America awards. If this was like any other year, Affleck would look like a shoe-in for the Oscar...except that he's not nominated. Which means that Affleck's repeated victories make this year's Academy Awards the hardest to predict in recent memory.
Well, 'Transformers 4' is happening and Michael Bay is directing it and there's nothing the franchise's detractors can do stop it. All anyone can do now is wonder how long it'll take them to name it 'Tr4nsformers.' However, it looks like the next entry in the series will be a completely different experience...at least that's what Bay is saying.
When 'The Fast and the Furious' came out in 2001, it was a hit, but it certainly wasn't enough of a hit for anyone to predict that it would spawn five increasingly successful and popular sequels. With 'Fast & Furious 6' hitting theaters in a few months, it has the tough job of living up to the massively successful 'Fast Five,' but with much of the cast and director Justin Lin returning, we have a good feeling about it. Although you'll get the first trailer during the Super Bowl tomorrow, you can start getting excited by taking a look at the first teaser poster.
The basic pitch for the 'Vampire Academy' book series sounds like someone got the grand idea to mash 'Harry Potter' and 'Twilight' together into one franchise...which means the film version is going to make a bajillion dollars. Despite the success of the books and the surefire success of the film, when your movie is called 'Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters,' we're allowed to scoff...because your movie is actually titled 'Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters.'
Anyway, all of this has been a roundabout way of letting you know that the film now has a cast and director.
Steven Soderbergh's 'Contagion' was one of the surprise hits of 2011, riding its terrifying concept and all-star cast to a $140 million international gross. Naturally, the first thought for Warner Bros. must have been "let's make a sequel!" but it looks like Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns may be taking it in a different direction altogether. How about a TV show?
Make no mistake: this was a slow and bad weekend at the box office, an example of the January doldrums at their absolute worst. However, this was probably the only environment where a film titled 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' could have flourished, so at least someone is happy.
With each passing awards ceremony, the Academy's snubbing of Ben Affleck for Best Director looks increasingly ridiculous. Some thought that 'Argo' winning Best Picture and Best DIrector at the Golden Globes was something of a fluke, but now that the critically acclaimed box office hit has won big at the Producer's Guild of America awards, you may want to shuffle around your Oscar bets.
You'd think that her commitment to the ninth (and final?) season of 'How I Met Your Mother' would get in the way, but it looks like 'Avengers' star Cobie Smulders may be joining the cast of ABC and Marvel's new series 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' That is, if the pilot goes to series. But c'mon: how could it not?
As much as we enjoy Jay Pharoah's President Obama, he has nothing on Jason Sudeikis' Joe Biden. In the vast land of SNL political impressions, the veteran cast member's take on the Vice President of the United States is definitely top tier, generally stealing the spotlight from whoever else he is sharing the stage with. That means that a sketch completely centered around Biden's post-reelection victory party is more than welcome.
There are few shows that beg for your eye rolls more than The CW's 'The Carrie Diaries,' a non-canonical prequel to 'Sex and the City' that follows a young Carrie Bradshaw as a student in the '80s. Naturally, the best way for SNL to take that show on is to view it through the lens of another classic HBO show. And that brings us to the sketch embedded below, titled 'Sopranos High.'
When Andy Samberg left SNL, we thought we'd never see another Lonely Island music video on the show again. This is a situation where we're ecstatic to have been wrong! Samberg and his crew (including a few cameos that you're bound to recognize) are back with a new song and new video and it's one of their best.
