  1. 'The Vampire Diaries': This Deleted Steroline Scene Has Fans Crying Again

    It's hard to believe they dared to delete a Stefan/Caroline scene from "The Vampire Diaries" series finale. But they did -- they being The CW, which just posted the 1-minute, 44-second deleted scene on YouTube, including this beautiful exchange from the newlyweds:

    Stefan (Paul Wesley): "I bet this isn't how you were expecting to spend our wedding night."
    Caroline (Candice King): "In case things get chaotic later, I love you Mr. Salvatore."
    Stefan: "And I love you, Mrs. Forbes-hyphen-Salvatore."
    Caroline: "We didn't even talk about that!"
    Stefan: "Come on. I know who I married."

    THE FEELS. The clip also features Damon (Ian Somerhalder) getting impatient with Stefan, and he's so good at that:

    The series finale aired in March, but "The Vampire Diaries: The Eighth and Final Season" just came out on DVD last week, including deleted scenes, so that's probably why this scene is only coming out now. Tonight (June 23) also marks the finale of TVD spinoff "The Originals" Season 4.

    Of course, fans shared impassioned comments under the video, wishing this scene had been included, or that Steroline got better treatment, or not caring about Steroline because they're more into Klaroline -- which could still happen -- or still upset about a lack of a Delena proposal scene. Etc. Oh, how we missed this fandom!

  2. Johnny Depp Gets Secret Service Attention for Assassination Joke

    Johnny DeppJohnny Depp knew a joke about assassination was going to be "horrible" and "in the press," then went ahead and made the joke anyway.

    At the Glastonbury Fest in the UK, where Depp was introducing his 2004 movie "The Libertine," he addressed the crowd asking, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?" Of course, the answer to that is "John Wilkes Booth, 1865," but since Depp was already trashing Trump to the crowd, it's clear he wasn't talking about Abraham Lincoln.

    And it's not just Twitter reacting to what he said: The Secret Service is aware of Depp's comments. Secret Service staff assistant Shawn Holtzclaw told CNN. "For security reasons, we cannot discuss specifically nor in general terms the means and methods of how we perform our protective responsibilities," a statement from the Secret Service reads.

    Depp, who's made headlines in the last year for his financial troubles and messy divorce, first brought up Trump to the crowd, asking, "Can we bring Trump here?"

    The crowd booed and yelled," No!"

    Depp added, "I think he needs help.... This is going to be in the press, and it will be horrible," he said. He paused briefly and said, "But I like that you're all a part of it."

    He then went on to ask, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?" The remark was met with cheers and whistles.

    Depp then said, "I want to clarify. I'm not an actor. I lie for a living." (Last year, Depp played Trump in a "Funny or Die" spoof called "Presents Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie.")

    Depp (or his publicist) has yet to comment on the whole thing.

    Of course, he's hardly the first celeb to public knock Trump, but, like Kathy Griffin, he's now got the attention of the Secret Service.

  3. First 'Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later' Trailer Brings Us More Camp Firewood Insanity

    It's time for more crazy Camp Firewood antics.

    Netflix has released the first trailer for "Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later," plus unveiled its fast-approaching premiere date. A follow-up to the 2001 cult film and its 2015 prequel series, "First Day of Camp," the new series again takes fans to the woods of Maine. This time, our return to Camp Firewood will be set in the '90s -- specifically 1991, 10 years after the ridiculous summer that saw staff have to save the camp from a government plot, toxic waste, and more.

    Rest assured that further conflict lies ahead; as the preview shows, Beth (Janeane Garafolo) plans to sell the camp. There may be other government conspiracies, too, given that Michael Showalter will again play Ronald Reagan while Michael Ian Black and David Wain portray George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, respectively. The series also stars Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, Marguerite Moreau, and many more returners as well as newbies.

    Watch the trailer below, and be warned that it's NSFW.

    "Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later" hits Netflix on Aug. 4.

  4. Netflix's 'To the Bone' Trailer Launches Fan Debate on 'Glamorizing Anorexia'

    Netflix's new trailer for "To the Bone" has earned more 1 million views, but also fears that it might be the new "13 Reasons Why" when it comes to triggering vulnerable viewers.

    "To the Bone" was written and directed by Marti Noxon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "unREAL") and stars Lily Collins as a young woman with anorexia nervosa. According to the synopsis, her character Ellen "spent the better part of her teenage years being shepherded through various recovery programs, only to find herself several pounds lighter every time. Determined to find a solution, her dysfunctional family agrees to send her to a group home for youths, which is led by a non-traditional doctor."

    The film also stars Keanu Reeves as her doctor, Carrie Preston as her stepmother, and Lilly Taylor as her mother.

    On one side, fans think this is a great opportunity to address eating disorders and mental illness, taboo topics that don't get a lot of play in well-watched forums, showing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. On the other side, fans are worried that this will further glamorize being skinny, triggering people with eating disorders, and just end up used as "thinspo" -- thin inspiration -- when that's not exactly the objective.

    Netflix's 'to the bone' is just a massive trigger to anyone with mental health problems or any form of eating disorder, it is not helpful

    — morgan (@mxrganmc) June 20, 2017

    u can already tell to the bone is gonna be another show romanticising mental illness and be dangerous for those who have eating disorders

    — lana 🌹 (@alanna_samuel) June 20, 2017

    i really wanna talk down on to the bone, but honestly, lily collins looks so freaking good in it, i'm just using it as thinspo 🙄

    — 84lbs (@skinnyminiix) June 20, 2017

    To the bone is great, I mean there is an "happy ending" in a movie about anorexia, and I feel it's very important BC THERE IS A WAY THROUGH

    — ma(zo)ya 17 🏳️‍🌈 (@khalhennig) June 20, 2017

    not at y'all getting fake mad over to the bone like it's another 13rw situation at this point y'all just want to be angry about something

    — electra (@biselinakyle) June 20, 2017

    I will be extremely disappointed if Netflix doesn't provide proper trigger warnings and resources for viewers of "To The Bone."

    — Gabby Frost (@gabby_frost) June 20, 2017

    To The Bone was written by a woman who was anorexic & stars Lily Collins who overcame ED. This is NOT a 13rw case. pic.twitter.com/EKoEY9iGko

    — Ariel (@fIoraIprints) June 20, 2017

    Hoping "To The Bone" will be eye opening and helpful rather than triggering and glamourising anorexia

    — ells (@EllaChaston) June 21, 2017

    before y'all go off about to the bone maybe do your research it's written and directed by someone who had an eating disorder

    — n | was rhaegardied (@JEONSBEGlN) June 20, 2017

    IF U HAVE ANY TRIGGERS ATTACHED TO FOOD/ED DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER FOR THE NETFLIX SERIES "TO THE BONE"

    — jenni (@Jenn1Monahan) June 20, 2017

    people with no mental illness: we need mental illness rep!!!
    to the bone: hello
    people: omg ur glorifying mental illness get out

    — heroin chic (@raskolnovich) June 20, 2017

    i can see what netflix are trying to do with To The Bone but i can see it causing more harm than good

    — nic (@circasIaves) June 20, 2017

    Netflix picked up "To the Bone" after its debut at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. It will be available for streaming on July 14.

  5. Honest Trailers Points Out That 'Power Rangers' Is 'The Breakfast Club' With Ninjas

    The Honest Trailers narrator likes "Power Rangers" as much as millennials do.

    Screen Junkies has released its latest Honest Trailers video, and its latest subject is the recent reboot of the '90s teen ninja superhero franchise. There is plenty of the usual mocking, but there is a lot of complimentary commentary as well. In fact, the narrator argues that the film warrants a sequel.

    What Honest Trailers likes so much about the flick is ironically not the action but the emotional stuff. The video highlights the kids' problems and how those and the Rangers' bond are what viewers actually come to care most about.

    "if you loved 'The Breakfast Club' but wished they all turned into ninjas at the end, then this is the movie for you," the narrator says.

    Another shining moment is when the video postulates that adults "just pulled random edgy traits out of a hat" to come up with the teenage characters personalities. Now that we think about it, that actually wouldn't surprise us...

    Watch the video below.

  6. 'Pretty Little Liars' Series Finale Promo Teases A.D. Reveal: 'No More Secrets'

    Get your tissues ready, 'cause the end is really here for "Pretty Little Liars." After seven seasons, it's #PLLGameOver on Tuesday, June 27, with a three-hour series finale event airing on Freeform.

    The big farewell starts with the two-hour finale, "Till Death Do Us Part," from 8 to 10 p.m., followed by the "A-list wrap party," with stars Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, and Sasha Pieterse joining executive producer I. Marlene King for an hour-long "unbarred and uncensored tell-all after-show to discuss all of the series' tightly held secrets, behind-the-scenes insights, and top moments."

    Before all of that happens, fans can catch up with an all-day Season 7 marathon starting at 11 a.m., and running up to the start of the finale.

    After last night's Episode 19, "Farewell, My Lovely," Freeform posted the big series finale promo, which promises "no more secrets" and "A.D. is revealed."Entertainment Weekly posted a page from the series finale script, if you want a sneak peek.

    Fans are hoping for a perfect wrap-up, but PLL wouldn't be PLL if fans weren't left confused as hell, with still more questions hanging. It doesn't seem like there's a way to satisfy everyone, when there are so many competing theories out there about A.D. -- and everything else. But we'll see.

  7. 'America's Got Talent': Watch Adorable 9-Year-Old Named After Celine Dion Nail 'Titanic' Song

    Near, far, wherever you are, you'll melt for little Celine Tam, whose "America's Got Talent" audition video already earned more than 10 million views in a "leak" days before her episode aired.

    Tam, age 9, appears in Season 12, Episode 4, airing Tuesday, June 20 (aka tonight), but the NBC reality show teased her song in a clip posted to YouTube on June 16, ending just before the judges's comments. (They're going to be good, especially from Mel B.)

    Celine Tam came to the auditions with her family, including her parents and younger singer, Dion. Yep, both Celine and Dion were named for the legend Celine Dion, and of course young Celine sang the "Titanic" ballad "My Heart Will Go On" for her audition.

    Watch the video:It's so sweet to see her parents tear up backstage.

    Some fans get tired of seeing singers on AGT, since there are other opportunities for singers outside of this particular reality show. But come on. This one was cute, right? Maybe she's not the next Celine Dion herself, but the real one must be beaming with pride out there.

    "America's Got Talent" Season 12 airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.

  8. Chronically Ill Boy Gets to be a Ghostbuster for a Day

    Thanks to Day Aykroyd and For the Win Project, an eight-year-old boy obsessed with "Ghostbusters" was able to be a Ghostbuster for the day.

    Braeden Rios, who suffers from the chronic respiratory disease bronchomalacia, and his family were flown from their home town in Iowa to Los Angeles for the big day. On the Sony lot, Braeden suited up in his own pint-sized Ghostbusters suit and photon pack. He then received a call to action from Ray Stanz himself (Aykroyd) to save Hollywood from the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

    There was also a video greeting from Ivan Reitman (who directed the 1984 original film) and Paul Feig (director of the 2016 remake).

    Sony supplied some real props (and that awesome Ghostbusters car) for the shoot. And For the Win created an awesome poster with Braeden facing down the Marshmallow Man. The movie is rated "B" for "Bustin'," because "Bustin' ghosts makes Braeden feel good and he's mighty good at it."

    The organization has also helped kids become Wonder Woman, "Super Juan," the Hulk and "Elihuverine." Find out more at their site: For the Win Project.

  9. 'Beguiled' Stars Reveal What Went Into That 'Lemonade' Photo Shoot

    Back in November of last year an amazing gift was given to the Internet: both Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning released photos on their Instagram accounts where they painstakingly recreated a moment from Beyonce's "Sorry" music video. Since they were in period costuming, filming Sofia Coppola's upcoming (and very brilliant) remake of Clint Eastwood's "The Beguiled," it added an even cooler dimension, especially given the very "Lemonade"-y themes of the film (female empowerment, revenge, etc). It was one of those perfect pop culture mash-ups that seems to only come around every so often and can only be facilitated by the rise and widespread implementation of social media. Also, it's really cool.

    We had to ask Fanning, Dunst, and Coppola about what went into the creation of the photo (above), and spoke to the stars about what it was like re-teaming with the acclaimed director (who just took home the Best Director award at Cannes), which you can watch below.

    "The Beguiled" opens in limited release this Friday before expanding everywhere next week. Go see it. It's as refreshing as a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day.

  10. Aca-Amazing 'Pitch Perfect 3' Trailer Tease Shows Bellas as 'Action Stars'

    The Bellas are back, along with some new friends, in the new "Pitch Perfect 3" trailer tease, taking fans behind-the-scenes on a global tour.

    The teaser follows director Trish Sie on set, along with stars Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, Chrissie Fit, Hana Mae Lee, Hailee Steinfeld, and John Michael Higgins, along with newbies Ruby Rose, Andy Allo, DJ Khaled, and John Lithgow.

    "Rebel and John are like peas in a pod," Sie says, showing footage of Wilson and Lithgow clowning around on set. Rebel Wilson argues that she's the most badass Bella, since she has to run at least 10 steps in a scene, and she has to be attacked by a dog that she's also allergic to. But you can see some actual badass action scenes, including Anna Kendrick jumping off some kind of smoking ship in a night shoot, along with other Bellas who are now "action stars."

    Watch the behind-the-scenes tease:An official trailer will show up whenever it's ready, and there's plenty of time, since "Pitch Perfect 3" doesn't open until December 22.

  11. Watch Ansel Elgort's 'Phenomenal' Rendition of 'Easy' on 'The Late Late Show'

    "Baby Driver" star Jamie Foxx challenged James Corden last night on "The Late Late Show," but it was costar Ansel Elgort's smooth rendition of '70s song "Easy" that astounded the late night host and the audience.

    "Easy," which was originally sung by Lionel Richie when he was with The Commodores, is -- surprise, surprise -- one of the songs on the killer "Baby Driver" soundtrack.

    "That was phenomenal," exclaimed Corden about Elgort's vocal chops. Corden then choked out, "You're better than me, you win." Trying to comfort the distraught host, Foxx suggested, "Maybe there's a world where all three of us are great singers." The three then teamed up for a rendition of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

    Before Elgort took the stage, Corden began the riff-off with Bruno Mars' "24K Magic" and Foxx sang Stevie Wonder's "For Once in My Life," then followed up with James Brown's "I Got the Feelin'."

    "Baby Driver," which, as Foxx pointed out, currently has 100% critics' rating on Rotten Tomatoes, opens June 28.

  12. 'Game of Thrones' Supercut Shows the 150,966 Deaths Before Season 7

    Valar morghulis, y'all.

    It's amazing that anyone is still alive on "Game of Thrones" to fight back the White Walkers in the final two seasons. As fans wait for Season 7 to arrive July 16 on HBO, the YouTube channel Leon Andrew Razon Compilations posted a 20-minute video with their estimated death count from the series so far. They actually show the deaths chronologically, including animals like the deer and mama direwolf in Episode 1. By their count, there have been 150,966 deaths to date.

    Some of the deaths require massive speculation, especially for the battle scenes -- like the "2000+ Stark soldiers and 1000+ Lannister soldiers" in Robb Stark's chess move battle against Tywin Lannister. It's hard to know definitively how many people died in each battle, so it's possible the "true" number is a lot higher or lower.

    It's still an interesting, and kind of alarming, way to recap the first six seasons before Season 7 kills off many more people and animals. (But please please please no more direwolves! Only two of the six pups are left, and our hearts can't take another loss.)

    "Game of Thrones" Season 7 starts Sunday, July 16 on HBO, and then there's just one more season of deaths coming in Season 8. And then these YouTubers should produce a final, updated count.

  13. 'Beauty and the Beast' Honest Trailer Compares Belle to Hermione & Mocks Brief Gay Scene

    Disney's 2017 remake of "Beauty and the Beast" made more than $1.2 billion at the global box office, but money can't save the movie from an Honest Trailer calling it "an empty spectacle" and "glorified rehash." (However, it does star "Emma Stone's favorite Belle," since Emma Watson turned down "La La Land" for this movie.)

    The honest trailer isn't as brutal as some can be, but it does focus on the lack of originality, and takes some shots at LeFou's (Josh Gad) blink-and-you-miss-it "gay" moment that somehow got the film banned in several countries.

    They also point out a certain similarity in Emma Watson's most famous characters:

    "Meet Belle, a beautiful book-lover who fall in love with an ugly dude."

    They flash to a "Harry Potter" movie scene with Hermione Granger and Rupert Grint's Ron Weasley.

    "So... Hermione?"

    Burn! They also point out that while Emma Watson turned down an Oscar-winning role in 'La La Land' for "Beauty and the Beast," "she deserves an Oscar for not laughing every time Dan Stevens showed up in his MoCap suit." Truth.

    Watch the trailer:

    "Beauty and the Beast" just arrived on Digital, DVD, Blu-ray, Disney Movies Anywhere, and On Demand last week.

  14. It's 'A Good Day to Die' in Creepy First 'Flatliners' Trailer

    Jamie (James Norton), Courtney (Ellen Page) Ray (Diego Luna), and Marlo (Nina Dobrev) hear something  in Columbia Picutres' FLATLINERS.Medical students learn cheating death has serious consequences in the first trailer for "Flatliners," the remake of the 1990 thriller that starred Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, and Kevin Bacon.

    It begins with Ellen Page asking James Norton if he wants to "have fun" with her later. The "fun" involves him stopping her heart and then bringing her back to life. Soon all the kids -- Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, and Kiersey Clemons -- are doing it. At first, they're invigorated from their brush with death and even acquiring new skills. And then things start going terribly wrong. (This is a horror movie, after all.)

    Although we don't see him in the trailer, Sutherland makes an appearance in the remake, which opens September 29.

    The first poster for the film, with the tagline, "You haven't lived until you've died" is also out.

  15. Watch the First Trailer for 'Olaf's Frozen Adventure'

    Olaf's Frozen AdventureLovable "Frozen" snowman Olaf is back and trying to find a holiday tradition for Elsa and Anna in the new short film "Olaf's Frozen Adventure."

    In the first trailer for the short (which will play this November in front of Disney's "Coco"), Olaf goes door to door looking for a tradition worthy of the Snow Queen. He learns the thrill of candy canes, is introduced to fruitcake (ugh!) and unwisely hits up a sauna.

    There's new songs, ice skating and of course reindeer Sven is back as well.

    Watch the trailer here. It will also play in theaters in front of "Cars 3."

  16. 'Black Panther' Trailer Had 89 Million Views in 24 Hours

    Take our money now, T'Challa!

    The first trailer for Chadwick Boseman's "Black Panther" debuted Friday night during Game 4 of the NBA Finals, leaving fans desperate for a visit to Wakanda. (The official poster arrived earlier in the day.) According to The Hollywood Reporter, the trailer earned 89 million viewers in its first 24 hours, including 19 million from NBA viewers.

    While that's an impressive haul, it's not a record for Marvel. THR said "Thor: Ragnarok" is still the most-watched Marvel trailer with 136 million views in its debut, but "Black Panther" made the top three, and did better than the teasers for "Captain America: Civil War," "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," and "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story."

    Marvel's official teaser trailer is still YouTube's No. 21 trending video as of Monday evening, with more than 17.4 million views.Perhaps more important than overall views is the overall reception, which has been overwhelmingly positive. "Black Panther" became a huge talking point on social media, THR reports, earning 349,000 mentions in 24 hours -- which is more than the NBA game itself, and second only to the premiere of the "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" teaser.

    If you're interested in a deep-dive of the trailer, Entertainment Weekly broke everything down with analysis from director Ryan Coogler. The movie arrives in theaters February 16, 2018. And Boseman confirmed that his Black Panther will then join the rest of the MCU in "Avengers: Infinity War."

  17. Lauren Graham Says There's 'No Reason' for More 'Gilmore Girls'

    Although Lauren Graham previously referred to the "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" as "a cliffhanger and not an ending," she's now saying she's happy with leaving the show as it is.

    Speaking to Indiewire, she said of the revival, "Just as an experience, it was kind of perfect. I always said, while we were doing it, that I couldn't see more episodes in that form. Five years from now do you have 'A Very Gilmore Christmas?' Maybe, but there's no reason anymore except enjoyment. And, actually, I think there's far more risk to continue — you run the risk of disappointing people."

    She added, "I kind of got what I wanted out of this, out of being an actor, and now I'm actually just as interested in helping somebody else have that, whether through directing or producing."

    But she's fully aware it was the role of a lifetime. In a new video interview for Variety's Actors on Actors series, she says she just knew Lorelai was hers. " She tells actress Constance Zimmer of "UnREAL" she'd read that Christopher Reeve said he knew a part was for him when he couldn't stand the idea of anybody else doing it. "That's how I felt about Lorelai. I was like, 'Get out of my way.' I just felt like it was mine."

    And she wants to keep making shows and movies like "The Gilmore Girls," she told Indiewire, "I see how much the new 'Gilmore Girls' has meant to the people who loved it, and I feel even more strongly that I want to be a part of things like that."

    She's currently working on an adaptation of Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan's book "The Royal We."

    "I want to be part of storytelling that gives someone a lift of some kind," she said. "It doesn't have to be role-model-y, necessarily, but I'm proud to have put something positive in the world, and I feel even more devoted to that now because I need it. I'm just devoted to storytelling, and I don't care as much if I'm in it anymore. I'd be just as happy to write it."

  18. Naomi Watts is a Bad, Bad Therapist in 'Gypsy' Trailer
    GypsyNaomi Watts is a therapist who could use some head-shrinking herself in the new trailer for her upcoming Netflix series, "Gypsy." And since it's billed as from being "from the director of "Fifty Shades Of Grey," (Sam Taylor-Johnson) it looks pretty steamy.

    In the ten-part psychological thriller, she plays Jean Halloway, a Manhattan therapist with a seemingly perfect life who begin developing intimate relationships with the people in her patients' lives. Which may be bad for patients and her marriage, but, hopefully, good TV.

    We see her pops pills, kiss men and women and lie to her husband (Billy Crudup), who's apparently all too familiar with her straying.

    The series, which debuts June 30 On Netflix, also stars Sophie Cookson, Lucy Boynton, and Karl Glusman.

  19. International 'Transformers: The Last Knight' Trailer: Has Optimus Prime Gone Rogue?

    Transformers: The Last KnightMichael Bay shared the first international trailer for "Transformers: The Last Knight" on Twitter and it hints that Optimus Prime could be the Big Bad this time around.

    Mark Wahlberg telling Prime, "This isn't you," gives us the idea that the good robot is longer an ally. The official synopsis simply says that "humans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone."

    We also get glimpses of Dragonstorm flying over the coast of England, Transformers fighting Nazis, and the relatively petite robot named Cogman that a stunned Wahlberg calls "you crazy ninja butler," after he ably crushes an opponent about 10 times his size.

    Per ScreenRant, Cogman is "a centuries-old man servant who happens to have anger issues, among other things." So that makes him the angry steampunk C3PO.

    The movie, which also stars Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro and Anthony Hopkins, opens June 21.

  20. Robbie and Stephen Amell Share Video From Set of Crowdfunded Movie 'Code 8'

    Filming is underway on "Code 8," the movie that CW stars Robbie and Stephen Amell funded via Indiegogo, but the brothers are asking for even more help to help supersize their sci-fi project.

    In a video from the set in Toronto, Robbie (Ronnie Raymond on "The Flash") thanked fans for their support and said, "Everything is going amazing." He asked for more donations, saying, "The more money we raise, the bigger the movie will be."

    Stephen (who stars on "Arrow") said, "Even if we only raise $5, we're still going to make the movie and it's going to be spectacular." He joked, "Rob won't get paid, but..."

    Perks for contributing to the campaign include hoodies from the movie, the chance to be an extra, and "tons of giveaways." Not to mention "Code 8" socks!

    Last year, the Amells raised more than $1.7 million thanks to 20,201 Indiegogo backers, Variety reports.

    The premise: "Code 8" is set in a world where people with supernatural abilities are discriminated against and often resort to crime. Robbie's character is struggling to pay for his ailing mother's medical needs and is lured into a lucrative criminal world by Stephen's character, who works for a drug lord.

    Jeff Chan, who previously made "Grace: The Possession," is directing. The cast includes Sung Kang of the "Fast and the Furious" franchise and Kari Matchett ("Covert Affairs").

    Stephen tweeted that the film is off to a "really terrific start."

    We're making a 🎥 pic.twitter.com/Wz0D9IQEix

    Really terrific start to @Code8Movie. I feel the rhythm now.

    Look for the film to be released in 2019.

  21. T.R. Knight Is Unrecognizable as J. Edgar Hoover in 'Genius': Watch His Transformation

    Whoa. George O'Malley, is that really you?!

    T.R. Knight told Access Hollywood he was confused, and initially thought it was a mistake, when he auditioned for "Genius" and they told him it was for the part of J. Edgar Hoover. But then they explained that he ages 40 years across the series, requiring a huge physical transformation.

    National Geographic's "Genius" centers around the life of Albert Einstein (Geoffrey Rush), the titular genius who was loathed by FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Knight talked to Access about playing Hoover, a man he considers a "monster" in real life, although he tried not to focus on that when playing the character. Knight said his transformation into Hoover took five hours in the makeup chair, and you can watch a sped-up version of the process in the video below.

    And for the record, yes, Knight still gets recognized all the time for playing George O'Malley on "Grey's Anatomy" -- and he's cool with it. "It's so great when you have people -- sometimes when the younger people, it's surprising because there's so much television out there, that they go back and watch it. And I always want to know if it's dated to them. .. But it's exciting. I think it's a testament to Shonda's [Rhimes] work."

    Knight said "Grey's" was his first experience with prosthetics, and they used the same techniques in "Genius."

  22. Watch Michael Keaton Choke Jimmy Kimmel for Liking Spider-Man More Than Batman

    Yes, Michael Keaton plays the villain in "Spider-Man: Homecoming," but for f*ck's sake, don't forget that he was Batman first, 'cause he sure as hell hasn't forgotten.

    Keaton was just on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," talking about the upcoming "Spider-Man" movie, and Kimmel kind of put his foot in his mouth right away.

    Kimmel: "I love Spider-Man, he's my favorite comic book character, easily."

    Keaton: "What?!"

    Kimmel: "Spider-Man. He's the funny one."

    Keaton gets up and mock chokes Kimmel at his desk.

    Kimmel [laughing]: "No I'm sorry! I forgot, you're his nemesis. Your co-stars--"

    Keaton: "No, I'm Batman! What the f*ck are you talking about?!"

    The audience cheered. DC Batman loyalty > Marvel Spider-Man villain loyalty.

    Kimmel went back to trying to talk about Keaton's "Homecoming" co-stars Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr., who were on "Kimmel" the other night. But Keaton wanted to talk about Batman. He said Batman came up frequently on set with Tom Holland. "He's a great kid, by the way."

    Watch the full talk:Ben Affleck should come out and choke Kimmel, too, for that Batman disloyalty. (Maybe Kimmel is still bitter that he was "cut" from "Batman v Superman.")

    If you dared to forget, Keaton debuted as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the 1989 Tim Burton film "Batman," and returned in 1992 for Burton's "Batman Returns."

    "Spider-Man: Homecoming" opens July 7.

    You don't want to be on the wrong side of Bruce Willis, but that Anakin Skywalker Hayden Christensen knows how to fight for what he wants. The official trailer for "First Kill" just came out, and the R-rated thriller puts Willis's police chief and Christensen's desperate father on the same and yet opposite sides when a botched bank heist turns into a kidnapping.

    "In order to reconnect with his son Danny (Ty Shelton), big shot Wall Street broker Will (Hayden Christensen) takes his family on a hunting trip to the cabin where he grew up. While out hunting with Danny, the trip takes a deadly turn when they stumble upon several robbers and witness the murder of one of the criminals. After becoming entangled in a bank heist gone bad that results in the kidnapping of Danny, Will is forced to help the kidnappers evade the police chief (Bruce Willis) and recover the stolen loot in exchange for his son's life."

  24. Watch 'Sesame Street's Funny OITNB-Inspired 'Orange is the New Snack'

    Sesame StreetIn the "Sesame Street" version of "Orange is the New Black," new inmate Piper Chapman -- excuse us, student Piper Snackman -- disrupts the usual Litchfield routine by introducing a new munchie at snack time: Not cookies, but a healthy orange!

    That confounds Red and "Mr. Mustache," until they try an orange. Surprise, surprise, they love it! From now on, oranges for everyone! Even "Googly Eyes," the kids' show version of Uzo Aduba's "Crazy Eyes."

    The hit Netflix series joins such classic parodies as "Mud Men" (the "Mad Men" parody) and "Law and Order: Special Letters Unit" (instead of the far-less kid-friendly "L&O: SVU"). Not to mention clever send-ups of "House of Cards" and "The Hunger Games."

    The fifth season of the real "Orange is the New Black" premieres June 9 on Netflix.

  25. 'America's Got Talent': Watch 'Amazing' Deaf Singer Earn Golden Buzzer From Simon Cowell

    Even Simon Cowell got warm-and-fuzzy after this "America's Got Talent" audition, so don't go thinking you'll escape without the feels.

    AGT Season 12 aired its second episode of auditions last night, with Cowell giving his Golden Buzzer pass to 29-year-old singer Mandy Harvey, who performed a beautiful original song called "Try."

    Mandy revealed she lost her hearing at age 18. "I have a connective tissue disorder, so basically I got sick and my nerves deteriorated." She has been Deaf for more than 10 years, but she's been singing since she was 4 years old. She left music after she lost her hearing, but returned once she figured out techniques to continue. Mandy told the judges she wrote "Try" because, after she lost her hearing, she initially gave up. This is her vow to do more with her life than just "give up."

    Watch Mandy's audition:Simon followed her performance by simply saying, "Mandy, I don't think you're going to need a translator for this..." He hit the buzzer, sending her to the live shows, then joined her on stage for a hug. He called her "incredible," saying her performance was "one of the most amazing things I've ever seen and heard."

    She does have a lovely voice, and she plays well, too. Between Mandy here and "Dancing With the Stars" winner Nyle DiMarco, it's clear lack of hearing does not have to be an obstacle for singing, dancing, or really anything.

    AGT continues Tuesday nights on NBC. Check out more auditions at the YouTube site. And, if you haven't seen it already, why not add to the hundreds of millions of views this 12-year-old singing ventriloquist has earned.
