'Serial' the Podcast Is Becoming a TV Show

SerialThe hit sensation "Serial" podcast is bringing true crime to your television.

The writing/producing/directing team of Chris Lord and Phil Miller ("21 Jump Street," "The Lego Movie") have optioned the rights to the podcast with Fox 21 Television Studio.

"Serial" - which is an offshoot of "This American Life," and produced by Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder - was the subject of watercooler talk across the country last year. The first season investigated the 1999 murder of high school student Hae Min Lee over the course of 12 episodes. The show received many accolades, including a Peabody Award. Lord and Miller are reportedly big fans.

The TV series will follow the making of the podcast as it investigates another case in-depth. The producers will search for a writer to join the team, then shop it to networks and streaming services.

Carly Rae Jepsen Cast in 'Grease: Live' As a Pink Lady

JetBlue's Live From T5 Concert With Carly Rae JepsenFox has called Carly Rae Jepsen, definitely.

The pop singer has been cast in the network's upcoming "Grease: Live!" as Frenchy, one of the Pink Ladies at Rydell High School. She befriends Sandy (Julianne Hough), the new girl in school and the love interest of greaser gang leader Danny (Aaron Tveit).

Joining Jepsen in pink will be "You're the Worst" actress Kether Donohue as Jan. David Del Rio is also on board as T-Bird. They join the already-cast Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo, Carlos PenaVega as Kenickie and Keke Palmer as Marty.

Fox's live performance of the classic tale - made into a 1971 Broadway musical and the 1978 movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John - follows in the mold of other live shows, like NBC's "Sound of Music" and "Peter Pan."

"Grease: LIve!" airs Sunday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. ET, and kicks off with a new version of "Grease (Is the Word)" by Jessie J.

CBS Orders Reality Show That's Basically Real-Life 'Fugitive'

The FugitiveThink you can disappear, go on the run, without anybody finding you? Then sign up for "Hunted," a new reality competition show ordered by CBS.

"Hunted" sounds a lot like a real-life version of the 1993 movie "The Fugitive" (itself based on a 1960s drama series). Contestants will go on the run and try to evade "some of the world's most highly skilled investigators and trackers" on a nation-wide manhunt. The pros will use every method available to them, from state-of-the-art techniques to old-school tactics, in an effort to uncover clues and find their hiding places.

The show is adapted from a British series of the same name, which premiered to very good ratings this month.

"Hunted" combines the suspense of a crime drama with the thrill of a competition reality series and some very topical social issues," said Glenn Geller, president of CBS Entertainment. Issues like privacy in this digital day and age - it'll be interesting to see if anyone can truly disappear. The temptation to post an Instagram might be just too tempting.

Lena Dunham Planning to End 'Girls' After Season 6

GirlsAre the "Girls" finally growing up?

In a radio interview, "Girls" creator, Lena Dunham, admitted that she was likely to end the HBO series after six seasons. Season 5 is slated to premiere in January.

"Never say never, but that is the way that we're thinking about it right now and we're starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the storylines of these particular young women," she said on "Elvis Duran and the Morning Show" (h/t Screencrush).

"I started working on this show when I was 23, and now I'm going to be 30 so it kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my 20s and then I go off into the world!"

Perhaps Hannah Horvath really is maturing. At the end of season 4, she turned down a chance to get back together with on-again/off-again ex Adam (Adam Driver). In a time jump, she was seen in a happy, seemingly stable relationship with teacher Fran (Jake Lacy).

All that's left is to make Marnie (Allison Williams) a normal human being - no, that's too much. Maybe HBO can convince Dunham to tack on a couple extra seasons, like they did with "Game of Thrones."

Here's How 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Was Originally Going to End

Everyone pays attention to the end of Marvel movies. Even Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) was just saying she's curious to see how "Captain America: Civil War" ends -- and she's in the movie. Marvel endings set the stage for what's to come, and the most recent film -- "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" -- did just that by showing the new Avengers team: Cap and Black Widow preparing to train newbies War Machine, the Vision, Falcon, and Scarlet Witch.

However, as Collider just noted, this was not always the plan. At a Q&A to promote the new "Avengers" Blu-ray release, Marvel Studios's Jeremy Latcham said they had initially thought of ending the movie with shots of many new Marvel Cinematic Universe characters:

In really early development there was a notion of there'd be a ton of new people. And then it was like, 'Well we haven't really introduced them, we don't know where they're gonna come from,' and Joss [Whedon] kind of did not love that idea. It was an early discussion, and then that kind of became just Captain Marvel, and then that felt weird just to have one new person."

Captain Marvel is getting her own solo film, which arrives July 6, 2018. Marvel Studios president Feige added, in the Q&A, that they wanted the end scene to show that the newbies need to learn what it means to be a team, building up from scratch, and having someone like Captain Marvel in the mix would confuse that message.

What do you think -- should they have included Captain Marvel and other characters in the end or do you like how they closed "Age of Ultron"?

'Nightline' Is Sorry for Confusing 'Quantico' Star With Another Indian Woman

Not all Indian beauty queens look the same, "Nightline." Thankfully, Priyanka Chopra, the stunning actress fronting ABC's new show "Quantico," had a sense of humor about the network's fumble when trying to do a segment on her.

The video interview, which you can see below in its corrected version, was titled "How 'Quantico' Star Priyanka Chopra Dealt With Race Issues," with the actress weighing in on racist bullying she faced when going to high school in the U.S., and people calling her an "Arab terrorist," even though she's neither Arab nor a terrorist. "Nightline" noted that she was already a Bollywood star and Miss World pageant winner before landing the lead in the new ABC show. Unfortunately, when showcasing her Miss World win, they showed another Indian woman winning: Yukta Mookhey, who had won the year before.

Priyanka has 11.1 million Twitter followers, and they pointed out the mistake:

Her initial reaction was literally just to laugh it off, re-tweeting the note above with "Lol!" But she also thanked Nightline for their correction:

And she also responded to someone else who was watching "Quantico" and confused her with M.I.A.:

At least Priyanka is now getting her own name and face out there to an American audience as the star of her own show. Here's the "Nightline" interview:

'Game of Thrones' Movie in the Works, Says George R.R. Martin

Get excited, "Game of Thrones" fans. Winter A movie of your favorite show is coming.

In an interview with The Daily Star, "Thrones" creator and author George R. R. Martin claims plans are underway for Westeros to hit the big screen. But there is a catch.

"There will be a movie but I will not be involved," Martin said. "I have too much to do. That is something HBO and [showrunners] DB [Weiss] and David [Benioff] are dealing with. I have two more books to finish and I still have so much to do."

HBO has yet to officially confirm any plans for a feature, and plot specifics are too soon to call right now. But Martin seems to have a general idea of what the story will be about.

"They are looking at dipping back in time during certain periods of the series, which could be examined as a one off plot. That means that some of the big characters who fans have seen die on screen could be resurrected."

If what Martin says is true, "Thrones" will soon join fellow HBO series "Sex and the City" and (sigh) "Entourage" as shows turned into movies.

The new season premieres in early 2016.

'The Choice' Trailer Brings All the Nicholas Sparks Drama

Teaser Trailer -
The new trailer for "The Choice," the latest drama from romance novelist Nicholas Sparks, claims to reveal the secret to life, as explained by protagonist Travis Parker (Benjamin Walker): "The whole damn thing is about choices."

In the clip, which premieres today exclusively on Moviefone and across other Aol sites (along with a brand-new poster for the movie, below), we learn that the main choice at the center of the flick is made by Gabby Holland (Teresa Palmer), the comely young lady who catches Travis's eye when she moves in next door. Gabby must decide if she wants to be with Travis or the hunky doctor Ryan (Tom Welling), and it seems she's happiest with the latter option; of course, like any good Nicholas Sparks leading man, Travis isn't letting Gabby go without a fight.

The two squabble about their dogs, kiss passionately in a clandestine hookup, and share knowing glances as they party with their equally-gorgeous friends. Travis's know-it-all sister Stephanie (Maggie Grace) seems convinced they'll wind up together; Ryan punches Travis out in a hospital; Gabby is in a life-threatening car accident; there's lots of rain. The drama keeps mounting, and we bet Sparks fans will be reaching for the tissues more than once before the flick is over.

Check out the trailer above. "The Choice" hits theaters on February 5, 2016.

'AHS: Hotel': Why Lady Gaga Will Leave Fans Cursing in First Episode

Lady Gaga was in "Machete Kills" and "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," so it's not like "American Horror Story: Hotel" is really her acting debut. But it is her big acting arrival, since she has the lead role -- and it's quite a role. She plays Elizabeth, aka The Countess, the wealthy bisexual doyenne who owns the Hotel Cortez, has a diet of sex and blood (!) and reveals her dark plan right in the first episode.

Speaking of the first episode, that airs next Wednesday, October 7 on FX. Ryan Murphy talked to E! News about the strong reaction fans are going to have to Gaga right away. "She'll give you nightmares," Murphy said. "When you see her you will say 'Holy s-t.'" He later expanded on that same idea, saying, "When you see that first episode when she comes on the screen, you're like, 'Holy s--t.' She has this incredible, magnetic thing that you can't create. You either have it or you don't. And she has it." Apparently what she has is worthy of cursing! (The costumes and makeup and sex/death/horror probably contribute to the holy sh-t effect too.)

Executive producer Brad Falchuk added, "She will terrify you and you will also be in love with her at the same. She's Gaga." And yet she went out of her way to show that she's more than Gaga, Murphy said, praising her work ethic:

I think when people see her in Horror Story they are going to be so blown away by her acting and by her presence and what she brings to it and how beautiful she looks. She's everything that you'd want. That's the thing about Lady Gaga that I have found is that she's never disappointed on any level even one time, and that's work. You don't just roll out of bed and be that. She delivers. Her work ethic is incredible and I've been so blown away by how prepared she is, and how much she loves the casts. She wants it to be a family of performers who are coming together to make something incredible and that's been a very wonderful, reinvigorating thing for our show and this season."

Sounds like it was a successful collaboration, and potentially the first of many. Gaga's Countess is a centerpiece of the fifth AHS season, with many lovers and ex-lovers plotting around her. Here are more details on the characters of "Hotel." Will you be checking in?

What if Matilda Went to Hogwarts? Mara Wilson Speculates on Potter Friendship

Most of us wish we could've gone to Hogwarts, but we're not all magically qualified. What about Matilda Wormwood? You may recall the 1996 movie "Matilda" starring Mara Wilson as a young genius with mean parents, a bully for a principal, and -- oh yeah -- telekinesis! Everything about her story seems fit for the world of "Harry Potter." What if she got an invitation to Hogwarts? How would that play out?

Actress Mara Wilson acknowledged that she was not the one to come up with the Matilda-at-Hogwarts idea, but she weighed in on the subject in a series of tweets with fans. Here's what she's written in the past day:

So she thinks Matlilda would be too old to hang out with Harry, Hermione, and Ron, but she'd see herself in them and their adventures. Then again, Mara retweeted a fan's argument that Matilda would actually be younger than the "clique":

Maybe Matilda would look up to the Potter group and wish she could join them. She might be the female Colin Creevey ... or maybe she'd have a crush on Harry and give Ginny Weasley some competition.

See Ron Howard's Epic Selfie With George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola

2014 Governors Awards - ArrivalsNo big deal, just three iconic film directors hangin' out takin' selfies. Not the droids you're looking for. Move along. Except it is kind of awesome to see "Star Wars" king George Lucas, the "Godfather" himself, Francis Ford Coppola, and Opie, aka Ron Howard, in one very casual-looking photo. Maybe they just gather every so often in a director's version of Jimmy Kimmel's Handsome Men's Club. (Spielberg was probably in the bathroom.)

The "Apollo 13" director shared the photo in question when tweeting images from a recent "Weekend with Charlie Rose" conference in Aspen. Here's Ron Howard, so excited to share the moment that he misspelled George Lucas's name:

One fan joked that it was confirmation of "Willow 2," referencing the 1988 movie directed by Howard from a story by Lucas. Coppola appears to be gesturing for some reason, maybe he's trying to direct Howard.

Howard also had a fanboy moment when Usher performed during the conference:
That's cool too, but it would've been nice to see and hear more from the directors. If only they had taped whatever conversation they had before and after taking the photo.

'Fear the Walking Dead' Web Series Spinoff Gets Premiere Date

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's ... another "Walking Dead" spinoff!

Remember "The Walking Dead" webisodes? Good times. AMC is kind of bringing them back in a creative new series tied to "Fear the Walking Dead." FTWD is ending its short first season this Sunday, October 4, and Entertainment Weekly said that's also the premiere date of the new web spinoff, "Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462." The Web story will start on, and every episode after that will first show during commercial breaks in "The Walking Dead" Season 6, which starts Sunday, October 11. But you can also just watch the rest of the episodes online, after they debut on TV.

EW said each mini episode will be under a minute, showing what happens on a commercial flight in the early days of the outbreak, when the passengers discover one of their own is infected. Here's the coolest part: As we noted before, this is kind of like "Survivor" in that a surviving passenger of this web series will join "Fear the Walking Dead" for Season 2. Who will it be?

Fans have already speculated that the plane of this web series may be the one Nick (Frank Dillane) spotted in an episode of "Fear." (See photo above.) Maybe it crashes nearby and Nick's group comes upon this survivor who joins the Season 2 cast?

'Enchanted' Sequel Update: Here's the Intriguing New Title

It's been eight years for viewers and a career lifetime for Amy Adams since "Enchanted" made Disney magic in 2007. There's been talk of a sequel for a while now, but not much solid intel. However, Collider recently shared some cool details on what is apparently not just being called "Enchanted 2."

Here's their scoop:

We've heard rumblings over the years of minimal movement on Enchanted 2, but now sources tell us that the project is seriously heating up over at the Mouse House. Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) remains attached to direct, and the studio is now in the process of punching up the script with the hopes that it will be in greenlight-ready shape very soon. What's more, we know the current working title: Disenchanted."

"Disenchanted"! That could be interesting. Collider added that it's not clear which actors might be returning for the sequel. Could it ever work without Amy Adams? She has shown interest in the past, but her career and family life have changed a lot in the ensuing years, so the timing may be tricky. But, as one commenter noted, the 10th anniversary of the original is coming up in 2017, so it would be great if they can make the movie in 2016 and release it in the following year. Maybe?

Speaking of amazing Amy, though, at the end of 2014, Ms. Adams told Moviefone that little girls still come up to her and recognize her as Giselle. We asked her why Disney hasn't done another "Enchanted" yet. Amy answered:

I don't know. Maybe because it's a perfect standalone movie. Do you know what I mean? It has a great beginning, a great middle, and a great end. I watched it recently, because I typically don't watch my work a lot, and I thought, I really like that movie. It was nice to revisit that work and have really positive feelings about it. But I think it works so well. Maybe."

Moviefone noted that Disney is pretty good at making sequels, and Amy quipped, "Well, it will have to be called 'Decrepit' if they wait too long." Maybe that's the fallback title if they don't stick with "Disenchanted."

Are you excited to hear that fairy dust is finally being sprinkled on this sequel?

The 31 Sassiest Reasons We Still Miss 'The Nanny'

What would the '90s have been without "The Nanny"? A sass-less wasteland lacking quips, comebacks, and gloriously satisfying insults, that's what.

As anyone who watched the "The Nanny" knows, two things attributed to the show's success: the undeniably sassy antics of nanny Fran Fine (Fran Drescher), and the love-hate (OK, mostly hate) relationship between Niles (Daniel Davis), the butler, and C.C. Babcock (Lauren Lane), the latter of which was defined by the merciless barbs they'd throw at one another. In other words, the show was swimming in sass.

Feeling nostalgic yet? Well, too bad. Because we're going to take a walk down memory lane and revisit "The Nanny's" unforgettable one-liners, sassiest jokes, and most memorable moments.

Best of Late Night TV: Julianne Moore's Adorably Bad 'Box of Lies,' Matt Damon's Boston Accent Lessons

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 ageless goddess that is Julianne Moore was on "The Tonight Show" to promote "Freeheld," but she took some time to play Jimmy Fallon's classic game "Box of Lies." They had to take turns describing mystery objects while the other tried to determine whether the descriptions were accurate or lies. Bless her, but she was terrible. Still awesome, though, and endearing in her attempts, especially in the last one.
If you want to learn how to speak with a Boston accent, Matt Damon was giving lessons over on "The Late Late Show." Tip: "You can't really do it without swearing." (James Corden, who is British, was awful.) Matt also mentioned discovering his fear of heights at age 34. That's Zachary Levin looking sharp next to him, mostly just listening to the conversation.
Over on "Late Night," Seth Meyers and Kenan Thompson played a fun game called "Three Memes and a GIF." Question: Isn't it pronounced with a hard G not like "Jiff"?
Reigning Emmys queen Viola Davis was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," talking about her Emmys speech for that historic win, but also dishing on "How to Get Away With Murder," and how she gives her mom money to go to the casinos every Thursday. Plus, you have to see Jimmy's bit on "The Dangers of Texting With Viola Davis." Talk about throwing her under the bus.
Michael Pena was on JKL and he broke some history too as the first Mexican astronaut ... in "The Martian," anyway.

Ellen Page talked (very eloquently) to Stephen Colbert about "Freeheld" and LGBT progress. Jesse Eisenberg was also on "The Late Show" talking about his new book of short stories and the embarrassment of his face. His words!
The perfection of Joseph Gordon-Levitt was on "Conan," describing his new movie "The Walk" as a 3D action movie. He also said it's like a heist movie, but no one gets hurt. And why not, here's Mark-Paul Gosselaar reliving his time as Zack Morris back on "Saved by the Bell":

'Harry Potter' Fans Can Enjoy Christmas Dinner in Hogwarts's Great Hall

harry potter, great hall, hogwarts, christmasWe've always been a bit jealous of Hogwarts students and their amazing dining options in the Great Hall, and now, fans of the "Harry Potter" series have the opportunity to experience a magical meal of their own.

Warner Bros. Studio in London is hosting a Christmas feast on the film's set on December 3, where diners can enjoy a sumptuous feast in the actual Great Hall room seen in the "Potter" flicks. Here's more scoop from the official WB website:

The Hogwarts dining room will be dressed for the occasion with the original props used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, including flaming Christmas puddings and hams studded with cherries. A wand will be waiting for you at your table and you'll enjoy the first two courses of a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings on the authentic set (vegetarian option also available).

In addition to dinner, the event also includes a studio tour, with stops at other iconic sets from the franchise, including Platform 9 ¾, Diagon Alley, the Gryffindor common room, and the Weasleys' home, The Burrow. The evening will be capped with cocktails -- and yes, butterbeer -- and dancing.

It all sounds pretty wonderful to us, though the $350 price tag is a bit steep. But that may be a small price to pay for the chance to live out your Hogwarts fantasies for the evening. Accio Christmas pudding!

Porsche Responds to Lawsuit Filed by Paul Walker's Daughter, Blames Driver

Fast & Furious 6 - World Premiere - Red Carpet ArrivalsIn response to a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Paul Walker's daughter, Meadow, automaker Porsche has said that Walker's death was the result of reckless driving, not a defect in the vehicle.

"As we have said before, we are very sad whenever anyone is hurt in a Porsche vehicle, but we believe the authorities' reports in this case clearly establish that this tragic crash resulted from reckless driving and excessive speed," Porsche's statement said.

Meadow Walker filed a lawsuit against the automaker on Monday, claiming that design defects and a lack of safety measures directly contributed to her father's death on November 30, 2013. Walker was the passenger in a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT driven by his friend, Roger Rodas, when Rodas lost control of vehicle and slammed into a tree, causing the car to burst into flames; both men were killed in the accident.

Law enforcement officials had said that the car was traveling at 90 mph when it crashed, though Meadow Walker's lawsuit disputes that number. Her lawyer, Jeff Milam, said in a statement about the suit, "She's a teenage girl still dealing with the tragic loss of her father."

Rodas's widow filed a similar suit against Porsche in 2014, which is still pending. Earlier this year, Porsche responded in much the same way, siding with authorities who deemed that reckless driving caused the crash.

"Roger Rodas's death, and all other injuries or damages claimed, were the result of Roger Rodas's own comparative fault," Porsche said at the time.

Will Rogue Appear in 'Gambit'? Anna Paquin Weighs In

anna paquin, rogue, x-menNot much is known yet about the plot of Channing Tatum's upcoming "X-Men" spinoff flick, "Gambit," including whether or not fellow mutant Rogue will make an appearance. Now, actress Anna Paquin, who plays Rogue in the series, may have an answer.

In a Twitter exchange with fans earlier this week, Paquin was asked point-blank whether or not she will be in "Gambit." Paquin's response? A simple "no."
But when the media ran with that quote, stating definitively that Paquin wouldn't be in the flick, the actress backtracked a bit, updating Twitter once more to clarify that her statement "wasn't a press release" and that she just supplied "the information that I currently have." So does that mean that she will appear in the movie after all?
Maybe, but probably not. SlashFilm has a good analysis of how the films' timelines make it seem unlikely that Paquin would star in "Gambit," because if that flick is set in the 1980s (which is the rumor right now), then Rogue would be only a baby, according to the chronology of the existing movies. That means, obviously, that she can't be a love interest for Tatum's Gambit, like she is in the "X-Men" comic stories; plus, with the addition of Lea Seydoux to the cast as Bella Donna Boudreaux, the love interest angle is already covered.

Of course, the plot for "Gambit" may not be set in stone yet, especially considering the film's behind-the-scenes woes. It has an October 2016 release date, but its director, Rupert Wyatt, just suddenly left the project, and no replacement has been named yet. Production was also pushed from this fall to next March, another sign that the creative side has some issues.

So Paquin-as-Rogue may yet fit into this version of Gambit's story; it's all a bit up in the air at this point. As Paquin herself noted, things may change, so stay tuned.

Sean Astin Says 'Goonies 2' Is Definitely Happening: 'People Want It'

Premiere Of FX's Rumors of a sequel to "The Goonies" began to surface soon after the flick was first released back in 1985, but fans have waited for more than 30 years with no luck. So will "Goonies 2" ever happen? According to one of its stars, it's only a matter of time.

In an interview with the Tulsa World, Sean Astin, who played Mikey in the flick, didn't provide any concrete details about plans for "Goonies 2." But the actor did say that the film has become such a phenomenon, that it's certainly ripe for a sequel -- in whatever form that may be.

"I have said and will always say, that it's not a question of if, but rather of when the sequel gets made," Astin told the World. "The precise makeup of it, I have no idea. Whether I will be in it, no idea. Whether they would even want the original cast in it, no idea.

"But it doesn't matter. It's bigger - it's actually bigger than everybody. It's bigger than even Steven (Spielberg), who created it. It's bigger than Richard Donner, who breathed such strong life into it. It's now a part of American cultural lore, and the studio has a lot to gain from promoting it, so you can take it to the bank that people will get to enjoy it more."

That's a bold prediction from Astin, though you can't argue with his logic. The actor cites the film's popularity at outdoor screenings, which have popped up across the country, as well as the flick's place as one of the top-suggested movies available on Apple TV, as signs that it "has solidified its place in the pantheon of popular films."

The World writes:

Astin is a believer that some movies should never have a sequel. "But 'Goonies' ain't one of them," he said. "'Goonies' is pret-a-porter for a sequel, man. It is ready to wear. I thought it would be a great animated series, then you could do all kinds of stuff, unencumbered from budget issues and that stuff. But people want it. People want to see it. And people are not always as misguided as we might represent. Sometimes the people know just what they want."

Sounds pretty logical to us. We won't hold our breaths, since Astin has been known to make bold proclamations on the subject in the past, but it's heartening to know that one of the film's stars feels as strongly about this as the rest of us.

And you just have to see the face Downey makes when he performs a certain, uh, action.

11 Times Gretchen Weiners Was the Fetchest Part of 'Mean Girls'

It's near-impossible to choose a favorite character from teen movie classic "Mean Girls," but we have a soft spot for Gretchen Weiners (played by Lacey Chabert) -- the girl who never stopped trying to make "fetch" happen.

Gretchen's dad invented the delightful breakfast treat Toaster Strudel, her hair is full of secrets, and she's, like, a really good friend. So what if her hairline is "so weird" and she can't rock hoop earrings? Irregardless! We love her anyway. Give it up for Gretchen Weiners and relive 11 times she was the fetchest part of "Mean Girls."

Mulder and Scully Still Seek the Truth in New 'X-Files' Trailer

The X-FilesThe truth is still out there, and Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are reuniting to find it in "The X-Files" limited series revival.

Fox debuted the first full-length trailer last night, in two parts, during episodes of "Gotham" and "Minority Report." Although it doesn't give away much of the plot of the revival, the trailer gives us more glimpses of Mulder and Scully as they get back to the business of solving supernatural mysteries. "In 2002, our investigation ceased, but my personal obsession did not," Mulder says in the first part of the trailer.
While he's as determined and hard-charging as ever, Scully is careful and wary. "You are on dangerous ground here," she warns Mulder. Ahhh, these two - some things never change, and we're glad about that.

"The X-Files" revival brings back many of the original show's stars, including Mitch Pileggi as FBI assistant director Skinner; Annabeth Gish as Agent Monica Reyes; William B. Davis as the Cigarette Smoking Man; and Bruce Harwood, Tom Braidwood, and Dean Haglund as the Lone Gunmen.

The six-episode miniseries premieres Jan. 24, 2016 on Fox.

Leonardo DiCaprio Is Left For Dead in New 'Revenant' Trailer

20th Century FoxHe speaks! A new trailer for Alejandro G. Iñárritu's "The Revenant" is out today, and it features Leonardo DiCaprio saying (a little) more than he did in the first teaser.

It also shows quite a bit more action, and hints at more of the plot. DiCaprio is a fur trapper whose camp comes under fire from a Native American tribe. Then, as he and his companions - including his son - trek across the snowy wilderness, he's attacked by a bear. One of those companions, played by Tom Hardy, leaves him for dead by half-burying his body in the ground.
But DiCaprio still lives, hauls himself out of the grave, and embarks on a quest for vengeance. "He's afraid," DiCaprio whispers to someone. "He knows how far I came to find him."

The visuals are just stunning, thanks to Oscar-winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki. DiCaprio looks to give an intense performance, and no doubt will be in the mix for the Best Actor Oscar this year.

"The Revenant" opens Christmas Day.

5 Things You Need to Know About 'The Flash' Season 2

A whole new world -- and a brand new Flash -- are coming in "The Flash" Season 2.

The first season ended on quite a cliffhanger, with our hero Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) taking a super-speed leap into a wormhole to stop it from destroying Central City. What happened after that? Fans will find out when the action resumes Tuesday, October 6 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. Here are five things you need to know about the new season.

1. There's a Time Jump Into the Premiere

The first episode of Season 2, "The Man Who Saved Central City," picks up "months" after the Singularity attacked. We'll see Barry still struggling to forgive himself for Eddie's death (side note: Is Eddie really gone?) and concerned about putting his friends in danger. So he's pushing everyone away and is choosing to just protect the city on his own.

However, when a meta-human named Atom Smasher (Adam Copeland) attacks the city, Iris West (Candice Patton) tells Barry that he needs to let his friends help him. Also in the premiere, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) helps Joe (Jesse L. Martin) with his Meta Task Force.

2. Iris has a Bigger Role
Expect to see more of Iris this season, after Barry kept her in the dark last year.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told MTV News that Iris is the one who brings the team together in the Season 2 premiere, and we'll also see more of her relationship with her father.

"Iris has an extremely strong story this year, dealing with the West family and her dad," Kreisberg said. "It's absolutely amazing - and we're really excited for people to see what happens to her this year."

3. Another Flash Is Coming
Season 2, Episode 2 is called "Flash of Two Worlds," and it will introduce the DC Comics character Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears), the original fastest man alive.

This mysterious guy from Earth-2 will appear at S.T.A.R. Labs with a warning about an evil speedster named Zoom, who is set on destroying The Flash. "[Garrick has] never been portrayed to our knowledge in live action," Kreisberg said at Comic-Con. "Now that we've established our Flash, we thought it was interesting to bring on the original Flash and create a brand new relationship for Barry to have."
4. Prepare to Welcome Many New Faces
Executive producer Greg Berlanti said they'll be introducing several characters from Earth-2 this year, beyond Garrick. Also, actor Michael Ironside will be playing Lewis Snart, the estranged, abusive father of villains Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Lisa Snart/Golden Glider (Peyton List).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ironside will be in Season 2, Episode 3, "Family of Rogues." Entertainment Weekly listed more of the fresh faces, including Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale), Patty Spivot (Shantel VanSanten), and Jesse Quick (Violett Beane) as new allies.

5. Expect a WTF Moment in the Premiere
Just as a teaser/warning, TVLine got to see the Season 2 premiere in advance and shared a brief review. Overall, they said "it is quite satisfying," but there were some caveats. As they wrote:

You will (eventually) see exactly how the 'singularity' was dealt with, and why that seeming victory has, sadly, splintered Team Flash in multiple directions. A highly entertaining bromance gets a big boost, one could argue that the foundation for Caitlin's fated alter ego is laid, and there is a montage toward the end that is simply wonderful and loaded with heart. All that said, I'd be lying if I didn't acknowledge a major 'What the heck?' moment in the penultimate scene, a zag that actually had me yelling, 'What the heck?' (or saltier words to that effect) at my laptop screen."

Sounds like fans may have a strong not-so-positive reaction to this particular Episode 1 scene, but doesn't that just make you even more curious to see it?

"The Flash" Season 2 starts Tuesday, October 6 from 8 to 9 p.m. ET on The CW.

Best of Late Night TV: Matt Damon's Therapy Session with Jimmy Kimmel and Michelle Obama's Plans Post-FLOTUS

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.

Let's get this party started with Michelle Obama, who chatted to Stephen Colbert about her big plans post-FLOTUS. "I want to open a window," she said. "I can't open my windows." Dream big, friend.

Over on "The Tonight Show," Rob Lowe, Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs played a game of Password, where they had to guess (wait for it...) passwords. It was cute, but mostly because everyone was so epically bad at the game.

Over on "Late Night," Cindy Crawford mused on the sexism she faced while in a college science program. Uhm, check yourself before you wreck yourself, North Western University. Cindy has beauty and brains.

As we all know, Jimmy Kimmel fake loathes Matt Damon, and the man himself showed up on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to a) annoy him, and b) interrupt his hilarious Mars joke. Sigh, these two.
Oh, and they also went to couples therapy together. Thank god they're working it out, we can't handle another Kermit and Miss Piggy situation.

Paul Walker's Daughter Suing Porsche Over Fatal Crash

Paul Walker Daughter suing porsche fatal crashANTHONY McCARTNEY, AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Paul Walker's daughter is suing Porsche, claiming the sports car that her father was in when he was killed two years ago suffered from numerous design defects.

The lawsuit filed Monday by Meadow Rain Walker seeks unspecified damages for defects that her lawyers claim kept the actor trapped in the Porsche Carrera GT when it crashed and burst into flames in November 2013.

The suit claims the car, which was marketed as a street-legal race car, lacked a proper stability control system and safeguards to protect occupants and keep it from catching fire after a collision.

An email sent to representatives of Porsche North America was not immediately returned.

The lawsuit was first reported Monday by celebrity website TMZ.

Walker's death occurred on a break in the filming of "Furious 7," the latest sequel in the "Fast & Furious" franchise.

We're sticking with Alicia Florrick (Julianne Margulies) for live TV, and the rest can go on the DVR or On Demand.

The Olsen Twins Are 'Always Welcome' on 'Fuller House,' John Stamos Says

J.Mendel Spring 2012 Fashion ShowIt's been the biggest story surrounding the announcement of "Fuller House," other than the fact that "Full House" would be revived in the first place: Will the Olsen twins be back? The answer, so far, has been a definitive "no," but that hasn't stopped one of their former costars from leaving the door open.

In an interview with "Today," John Stamos chatted with host Matt Lauer about the possibility, with Lauer asking, "Might they pull off one of the great surprises and make an appearance?"

"They're fully welcome. Any time," Stamos replied. "I love them. There was a lot of, I think, miscommunication in the press and stuff. I mean, I talked to them, I understood why they didn't want to come back. I mean, they just have big lives. They haven't acted in a while. But I love them dearly and they're always welcome on our show."

That's a bit of an about-face for the actor, who earlier this summer called BS on Mary-Kate and Ashley for claiming to not know about the series. But like his fellow costar Bob Saget, it seems that now there truly are no hard feelings, and it's nice to know that everyone would welcome the twosome should they decide change their minds.

It probably won't happen, but fans can dream, right? And as Lauer joked, they'd only need one twin to appear, anyway.

"Fuller House" is set to hit Netflix sometime next year.

This 'Spider-Gwen' Trailer Reimagines Emma Stone as the Real Hero

spider-gwen, emma stone, amazing spider-manSick and tired of boys getting all the attention -- and fresh off the success of a new Marvel comic series -- the folks at Vulture have reimagined Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy character as the actual hero of the "Amazing Spider-Man" series, with some pretty awesome results.

The fake trailer for "Spider-Gwen," based on the comic of the same name, centers on Gwen (Stone, with an assist from body double and cosplayer Julianne Cancalosi), who's bitten by a radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker. In voiceover cobbled from various Stone flicks (including the Oscar-winning "Birdman," which also supplies some footage that doubles as "Spider-Man" villain the Vulture), Gwen explains what it's like for a teenager to suddenly be giving such great powers -- especially a teen who just happens to have such a powerful policeman for a father.

It's a little choppy in places, but then again, it's not a real movie -- which is a real shame. The fact of the matter is that there have been so few quality depictions of female superheroes on the big screen; that this looks so entertaining, and doesn't even exist, is the real crime.

Check out the awesomeness for yourself below. Can someone start a petition to get "Spider-Gwen" into theaters?

8 Stars You Won't Believe Got Their Start in Horror Movies

Everyone needs to start somewhere and for a lot of Hollywood stars, their first big break was in a low-budget horror film.

You already know that Kevin Bacon got skewered in the first "Friday the 13th," and that Jennifer Aniston had to defend herself from a murderous sprite in "Leprechaun." But you might not have seen some of these future Oscar winners and superheroes' early films where they had to pretend to be terrified of parasites, critters, vampires and (the horror!) evil corn.

John Stamos Reunited with the Beach Boys for Some 'Full House' Nostalgia

29 Times 'Lizzie McGuire' Was the Most Important Show in Your Life

Oh, "Lizzie McGuire." How could we have made it through our painfully awkward adolescence without you?

There are few shows more important to anyone who grew up in the 2000s than The Disney Channel's "Lizzie McGuire." Lizzie (Hilary Duff) -- along with besties Gordo (Adam Lamberg) and Miranda (Lalaine) -- handled life's most humiliating moments with class. OK, not really, but they made middle school life so much better by showing us all that you can get through the misery with humor, heart, and the support of family and friends. Also, emphasis on the humor.

So, in honor of the special place where "Lizzie McGuire" lives in our hearts, here are some of the show's most important/memorable moments.

Vin Diesel Says a New 'Fast & Furious' Trilogy Will End the Series

Premiere Of Universal Pictures' There may not be a director yet for "Furious 8," but according to star Vin Diesel, there are still some big things in store for the franchise.

Diesel took to his Facebook page on Friday to announce that not only is he hard at work on helping develop the eighth flick in the franchise, but that the series (or in his words, "SAGA") would continue for a new trilogy, before wrapping up with a 10th film. Those ambitious plans are the reason, according to Diesel, that "Furious 8" doesn't have a director yet, refuting claims that multiple people have turned down the job, thanks in part to his own difficulty during the production of "Furious 7." (Studio Universal has also denied those claims.)

In his Facebook post last week, Diesel indicated that he had huge influence in selecting a director for not only "Furious 8," but the next two films as well, and the actor said he was working closely with producer Neal Moritz and Universal to decide who would helm each installment of this new trilogy. Diesel then promised that his next post would reveal those directors, though when he updated his page again on Sunday, there was still no progress on that front; instead, Diesel thanked fans for their patience with the process, and for their loyalty to the series.

The fans of the Fast & Furious SAGA are the best fans in the world... Since I became the Producer in 2008, you have been...

As ScreenCrush notes, a trajectory for three more "Furious" flicks would likely mean that "Fast & Furious 10" would come out around 2021, and locking in directors for a project so far in advance is uncommon. But could Diesel be plotting to direct one (or all) of the movies himself? The rumor mill certainly thinks he's gunning for the job, and fans on his Facebook page apparently want to see it happen, too.

We'll have to wait and see how this shakes out in the coming weeks and months. But we can guarantee that Diesel will have plenty to say about it, regardless of what happens.
