  1. Danny McBride Is Apparently Crocodile Dundee's Son in 'Dundee' Teaser Trailer

    Surprise! There's a random Crocodile Dundee movie coming this summer.

    Out of nowhere, People just revealed a first teaser for "Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home." Danny McBride stars as Brian Dundee, son of Crocodile Dundee, in a revival of the Australian franchise. OG "That's not a knife" bushman Mick Dundee will be back, still played by Paul Hogan.

    Paul Hogan even commented for People's story:

    "Crocodile Dundee is a film that has stood the test of time. It was a defining moment in my life and one of my proudest accomplishments. Throughout the past few years, I've been thinking about how to bring Dundee to a new generation. I'm excited to introduce the new Crocodile Dundee to the world and look forward to sharing more news about those involved very soon."

    McBride had his own quip on the role:

    "I'm not going to lie to you, to be a real Crocodile Dundee, I think 95% of it is the vest and then 5% is just being able to not fall down and stay on your feet," he told People.

    Here's the film's synopsis, from the official site:

    "Crocodile Dundee is back. Well, actually, he's missing in the Outback. And the only person who might be able to find him is the loudmouthed American son no one knew he had. Introducing Danny McBride as Brian Dundee. This son of a legend is forced to channel his Aussie roots as he embarks on the ultimate adventure in the land down under.

    It's time to live up to the family name."

    Check out the very brief teaser:There are photos from production on the official site, too. We're now waiting for a trailer and a release date. Or for someone to wake us from this '80s fever dream.

  2. 'Heathers' TV Series Is Different but Still Dark as Ever in Redband Trailer

    Get out your diary, because you're going to want to commemorate a big event: The redband trailer for "Heathers" is here.

    Like the 1988 cult comedy it is loosely based on, the upcoming series is dark and twisted. It centers on Veronica (Grace Victoria Cox), a member of her school's most popular clique who secretly hates her friends, all of whom are named Heather. After she meets new student J.D. (James Scully), she gets involved in some dangerous games.

    Although the series has a lot in common with the movie, there are also big changes. As we see in the trailer, the story takes place at a modern-day high school and the old stereotypes about popular kids don't hold true. One familiar face, however, is original star Shannen Doherty, who previously played Heather Chandler but now takes on a new and "pivotal" role. She makes an appearance in the trailer, as does Selma Blair, who plays the wicked stepmother of Heather Duke (Brendan Scannell).

    Watch the trailer below. (Warning: It's NSFW.)

    If ever there was a reason to step away from your croquet game, it's "Heathers." The show starts streaming March 7 on Paramount Network.

  3. 'Queer Eye' Trailer: Netflix's Reboot Does Life Makeovers

    Netflix is bringing "Queer Eye" back into our lives, starting in February.

    The streamer released a new trailer for the rebooted series Thursday, teasing what the offshoot of the 2003 Bravo reality show "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" will offer. Like its predecessor, the show will focus on big life makeovers for ordinary people. The makeover subjects will adopt changes in multiple areas of their lives, with the help of a new Fab Five and their so-called "Queer Eye."

    The reboot's Fab Five consists of Bobby Berk, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, and Tan France, and they'll offer their expertise in design, food and wine, culture, grooming, and fashion, respectively. They're taking over from the original five, which included Thom Filicia, Ted Allen, Jai Rodriguez, Kyan Douglas, and Carson Kressley. In addition to doing their set jobs, it looks like they'll work to open people's minds and hearts.

    "The original show was fighting for tolerance," the trailer tells us in voice-over. "Our fight is for acceptance."

    Watch the trailer below.

    "Queer Eye" is set for an eight-episode run and premieres Feb. 7 on Netflix.

  4. Alicia Vikander Embraces Her 'Tomb Raider' Destiny in New Trailer

    A new trailer for the upcoming "Tomb Raider" reboot sheds some more light on our titular heroine, featuring a young Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) who's finally ready to embrace her roots and follow in her adventurer father's footsteps.

    The clip spends more time on the mysterious island where Lara's father (played in flashbacks and video messages by Dominic West) was last seen, which just so happens to be in the middle of something called the Devil's Sea. If that wasn't ominous enough, she's greeted on arrival by the villainous Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins), who takes her prisoner.

    But Lara is no shrinking violet, and this new trailer highlights all of Vikander's intense training and impressive stunt work. We have a feeling that Vogel and his cohorts are no match for this tomb raider-in-training, and it should be fun to see how much butt Lara/Vikander kicks along the way.

    "At some point, we have to face up to who we are, who we're meant to be," Lara says in voiceover at the beginning of the clip. Looks like she's definitely making progress.

    "Tomb Raider" hits theaters on March 16.

  5. Watch: Nicolas Cage's Greatest Bonkers Performances

    Nicolas Cage is one of those performers whose roles are filled with such intensity and passion that you wonder how he can work himself up enough to do the next job. Only he does, time and time again. Seriously, he's been making about a half-dozen movies a year, mostly due to outstanding financial issues (we could have told him that Bavarian castle was a bad investment), but still, each one is more electric than the last. In honor of "Mom & Dad," an insane-looking movie where parents become inclined to murder their children (in theaters and VOD today), and the upcoming Sundance premiere of his offbeat revenge thriller "Mandy" (which just sounds so awesome), we thought we'd rundown five of our favorite berserker Nic Cage performances.

    What do you think of our list? Which movies would you have included? And which ones have you never seen? Let us know!

  6. Hilarious 'The Death of Stalin' Trailer Reveals Rupert Friend's Comedic Chops

    "You're not even a person; you're a testicle!"

    "The Death of Stalin" is finally getting a U.S. release in March. The political satire comes from Armando Iannucci, creator of HBO's "Veep," and the other brilliant satires "In the Loop" and "The Thick of It." He's a genius. This movie, following the Soviet struggle for power after Stalin dies in 1953, came out in the U.K. last year and earned rave reviews.

    The black comedy stars Steve Buscemi, Jason Isaacs, Jeffrey Tambor, Monty Python legend Michael Palin, Andrea Riseborough, Olga Kurylenko, Paddy Considine, and Rupert Friend.

    Friend plays Stalin's son, Vasily Stalin, and fans who know him best from "Homeland" may be surprised by how much his serious comedic chops dominate the new star-studded trailer:Here's the official synopsis from IFC Films:

    "The one-liners fly as fast as political fortunes fall in this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire from Armando Iannucci (Veep, In the Loop). Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast."

    "The Death of Stalin" opens in theaters March 9.

  7. 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 14 Gave Jaggie a Nearly Naked Scene: Hot or Hurl?

    Oh, Shonda, that was cold. But also hot. Still -- Baby Harriet would not approve!

    "Grey's Anatomy" Season 14 returned from winter break on Thursday, January 18 with Episode 9, called "1-800-799-7233." It delved deep into the very serious issue of domestic abuse through Jo Wilson's (Camilla Luddington) storyline with her estranged husband, Paul Stadler (Matthew Morrison), and his surprise fiancée Jenny (Bethany Joy Lenz).

    However, there was also time for some sexy Jaggie moments between Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) and Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary).

    Before the episode, we saw the preview photos showing Jackson and Maggie laughing and flirting -- and that got our Japril hearts in a twist -- and things got even more heated between the two on screen. We last saw Jackson and Maggie on that bloody helicopter flight in the midseason finale. So they needed to clean themselves up after that mess. But, in a shameless move to show Jesse Williams shirtless, and tease out a Jaggie connection, ABC included this scene of the docs stuck waiting to put on clothes:

    Here's the clip:After that, um, bonding session, Jackson asked Maggie out for a drink. The looks he was giving her! Any other woman probably would've melted, but Maggie was the one holding it together, for once. They are stepsiblings, with plenty of other complications. Instead of going out with Jackson, she accepted her Tinder date and went out with him.

    So ... is that it for Jaggie or not? Jackson seemed really into her, which is not what we wanted to see.

    We're not the only fans hoping "Grey's" stops trying to make Jaggie happen:

    I've said it before and I'll continue to say it until this storyline is over. WE. DO. NOT. SHIP. MAGGIE. AND. HER. STEPBROTHER. ROUND. HERE. #GreysAnatomy

    — ☄🌟Christy🌟☄ (@ChristyBean88) January 19, 2018

    At least we know next week's episode will bring Jackson and April together. Jaggie is not the most popular ship at this point, but a Jackson/Maggie pairing does have defenders.

    I like Maggie and Jackson. Not sorry. #GreysAnatomy

  8. 'Everything Sucks!': Best Parts of Being a Teen in the '90s Featured in Date Announcement

    Netflix is bringing us more '90s nostalgia with its upcoming comedy "Everything Sucks!," and it is all coming soon.

    The streamer revealed the coming-of-age comedy series' premiere date Wednesday, and the information came with a fun look at the series. Specifically, the announcement video includes some of the best parts of being a teen in the '90s. If your school days were full of TVs on rolling carts, learning how to type dirty words on your calculator, and carrying a Discman everywhere, you're in for a trip down memory lane.

    Watch below, because nothing about it sucks.

    Coming from creators Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan, the series centers on high school life -- namely, freshman year -- in 1996. The series stars a variety of relative newcomers, including Peyton Kennedy, Jahi Winston, Patch Darragh, Claudine Nako, Sydney Sweeney, and Elijah Stevenson, among others. Its first season will consist of 10 half-hour episodes.

    "Everything Sucks!" debuts Feb. 16 on Netflix.

  9. 'It' Honest Trailer Mocks Losers Club for Screaming More Than One Direction Fans

    The 2017 movie "It" just floated onto DVD and Blu-ray last week. It's the top-grossing horror movie of all time. It's popular with fans and critics. But that doesn't mean it's perfect, and it's far from immune to the not-so-gentle ribbing of Screen Junkies' Honest Trailers.

    "Journey to the idyllic child murder capital of America and meet a Losers Club full of Goonies and Lost Boys -- kids who'd beat One Directon fans in a screaming contest."

    Heh. That's what makes them beautiful?

    Whether you loved the Stephen King adaptation or not, you should appreciate the (very funny) critical analysis of this video:Yeah, the casting of Finn Wolfhard definitely doubles down on the "Stranger Things" comparisons. And it is definitely too bad that a few of the Losers got shafted in the character development department. And there are some classic horror cliche moments where you want to scream at the characters not to do something you know they are about to do anyway. But that's part of the fun, no?

    The "It" sequel is meant to follow the older Losers, and it's scheduled for release in September 6, 2019. No casting announcements have been made yet, but the young stars did share some A-list suggestions.

  10. 'SNL' 2018: Sam Rockwell Drops F-Bomb & Bill Murray Drops by as Bannon

    You stay "f*cking" classy, "Saturday Night Live"!

    Season 43 returned from winter break with its first episode of 2018 on Saturday, Jan. 13. It was filled with cameos and curses, and managed to pull them off splendidly. "Three Billboards" star Sam Rockwell was the host, and he aired a live f-bomb when he told the "kids" in the "Science Show" sketch they couldn't be so "f*cking stupid." Cecily Strong and Mike Day did a good job playing off the f-bomb, which was bleeped in SNL's YouTube sketch but saved on Twitter:

    That would be an F bomb by Sam Rockwell on Saturday Night Live!!! #SNL

    — Michael Klinck (@MichaelKlinck) January 14, 2018

    Weekend Update co-anchor Colin Jost joined the fun by openly -- not accidentally -- saying "sh*thole":

    "During an Oval Office meeting on Thursday, Trump attacked protections for immigrants from African countries, which he called s-holes. That's what NBC asked us to say, by the way. 'S-holes.' Even though the president can say 'sh*thole.' ... Oops."

    In uncensored news, Steve Bannon finally revealed his face in the Cold Open sketch, and he was played by SNL legend Bill Murray.

  11. Ellen DeGeneres Pays Tribute to Her Father, Who Passed Away This Week

    Ellen DeGeneresEllen DeGeneres shared a touching tribute to her father, Elliott, who passed away this week at age 92.

    During yesterday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," she shared a photo of her father and said how proud he was of her.

    "In addition to [the devastating mudslides in] Montecito, I lost my dad this week. He was 92 years old. He had a good, long life," she said.

    She shared that she was able to say goodbye to her father and that he passed away 10 minutes later.

    That's when she saw the huge rainbow over the studios where she films her show. She shared the photo on Instagram with this caption: "I was able to say goodbye. When I was a kid, my dad took us on one vacation to Warner Bros. Studios. He loved this business. He loved that I was in it. When he died, I saw this rainbow over the stage they named for me."

    She also shared a black-and-white photo of her with her father, whom she credits for her sense of humor.

    My dad and me. ❤️

  12. James Franco Skips Critics' Choice Awards Amidst Sexual Misconduct Allegations

    James FrancoWhen James Franco's name was read out as the winner of Best Actor in a Comedy for "The Disaster Artist" at last night's Critics' Choice Awards, he wasn't there to accept.

    According to TMZ, he had planned to attend the show, which was held in Santa Monica, CA., but "obviously hard a change of heart."

    Last Sunday, he won the same award at the Golden Globes, where he shared the spotlight with the actor-director he plays, Tommy Wiseau. He also wore a "Time's Up" button, which some regarded as hypocritical.

    Franco is the latest actor to be accused of sexual misconduct, allegations he hotly denied in an uncomfortable appearance January 10 on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert."

    Five women have accused Franco of "inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior," including pressuring them to go topless, according to the L.A. Times.

    Four of the women were students of his. He taught at Playhouse West in North Hollywood and then founded Studio 4, which had locations in L.A. and N.Y. before it shut down last fall.

    Whether this will affect his chance at an Oscar win (or even a nomination), is being debated by sites like The Wrap. Oscar voting for nominations takes place from January 5 to January 12, according to The Wrap. The Oscar nominations will be announced January 23.

  13. Watch Saoirse Ronan Shush Jimmy Fallon's Obnoxious Irish Accent During Game

    Timothée Chalamet got bleeped saying "batsh*t" during "The Tonight Show" game, but maybe bad accents should be bleeped, too?

    The 2018 awards season is under-way, and recent Golden Globe winner Saoirse Ronan ("Lady Bird") joined nominee Timothée Chalamet ("Call Me By Your Name") in a "Tonight Show" appearance Wednesday night. Both talked to Jimmy Fallon separately, and then competed against each other in one of the late show's favorite games, "Catchphrase."

    Fallon and Ronan were teammates, and Chalamet was paired with The Roots' Tarik Trotter. Chalamet is lucky Trotter could understand his vague hints, and the young actor had to be bleeped toward the end.

    Toward the middle of the video, around the 2 minute mark, the Irish actress shut down Fallon for his leprechaun-bad attempt to match her voice.

    Saoirse Ronan, whispering: "Jimmy. Jimmy. Don't do the accent."

    Yeah, a lot of people don't really appreciate when you mock the sound of their accents. You may think you're being cute and funny, but you're not. (That was one of the viewer complaints about Ronan's Irish spoof on "SNL.")

    Anyway, it was a fun game of "Catchphrase." Watch and see who won:Here are some other videos from both stars' talks:It's very likely we'll see both Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet on the list of Academy Award nominations when that list comes out January 23. The Oscars air March 4.

  14. Barack Obama Mocks His 'Dad Moves' in Clip from David Letterman's Netflix Series

    Barack Obama has "dad moves," and he knows it.

    With the former president appearing as the first guest on David Letterman's upcoming Netflix series, "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction," he is featured in a new clip, released Wednesday. Thanks to the sneak peek, we know he'll be discussing his dancing skills (or lack thereof) and gamely mocking himself. It turns out there's an art to keeping those "dad moves" in check, and Obama has mastered it.

    "I think the key is... what we call staying in the pocket," he tells Letterman in the video. "You gotta stay in the pocket."

    Obama goes on to explain what he means by that, pointing out how dads run the risk of "trying stuff they can't really pull off" once they step outside the pocket. Before they know it, they're doing karate kicks. We've all seen what can happen.

    Watch Obama describe it below.

    Letterman's series will consist of six one-hour episodes, and each will feature a single guest. In addition to welcoming our former commander in chief, Letterman will chat with actor George Clooney, Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, comedian Tina Fey, and radio personality Howard Stern. We're looking forward to seeing the former "Late Show" host take on a new project.

    "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" hits Netflix on Jan. 12.

  15. James Franco Denies Allegations by Ally Sheedy & Others as TimesTalk Canceled  

    US-ENTERTAINMENT-GOLDEN-GLOBES-PRESSROOMJames Franco went from a Golden Globes high to an awkward late-night low.

    The New York Times has canceled a TimesTalk James Franco and his brother Dave were going to do to discuss "The Disaster Artist." Franco just won a Golden Globe Award for his performance in that movie, which he also directed. But during the Globes, Ally Sheedy and other actresses spoke out in protest of Franco being there and being rewarded -- seeing it as hypocritical on a night where it was supposed to be Time's Up on sexual misconduct.

    "The Breakfast Club" alum Ally Sheedy shared tweets about Franco (and Christian Slater) that she later deleted suggesting he's tied to her reason for leaving the business:

    "Breakfast Club" star Ally Sheedy called out James Franco over his #GoldenGlobes win with the #MeToo

    — Marlow Stern (@MarlowNYC) January 8, 2018

    Two other women who knew Franco alleged sexual misconduct via Twitter, also during the Globes. Here's part of what Violet Paley wrote:

    Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco. Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?

    — Violet Paley (@VioletPaley) January 8, 2018

    She added that Franco had recently apologized for his past conduct to herself and "a few other girls." One of those girls may or may not have been Sarah Tither-Kaplan, a former acting student of Franco's, who tweeted about an exploitative nude scene experience with him. (Update: On Jan. 11, five women -- including Sarah Tither-Kaplan -- accused Franco of sexually exploitative behavior in an article by the Los Angeles Times.)

    In the wake of the shifting conversation about Franco, the NY Times issued a statement to The Hollywood Reporter and other outlets saying they would cancel the TimesTalk planned for today (Wednesday):

    "The event was intended to be a discussion of the making of the film, The Disaster Artist. Given the controversy surrounding recent allegations, we're no longer comfortable proceeding in that vein."

    James Franco still appeared on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Tuesday night, and Colbert asked him about the allegations. Franco said he did support Time's Up, and he heard about (but didn't read himself) the things women wrote on Twitter.

    "First of all, I have no idea what I did to Ally Sheedy. I directed her in a play off-Broadway. I had nothing but a great time with her, total respect for her. I have no idea why she was upset. She took the tweet down. I don't know. I can't speak for her.

    The others? Look. In my life, I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I've done. I have to do that to maintain my well-being. I do it whenever I know there's something wrong ... I make a point to do it. The things that I heard on Twitter are not accurate. But I completely support people coming out and having a voice because they didn't have a voice for so long..."

    Watch the very uncomfortable interview:James Franco was previously in headlines when, at age 35, he tried to hook up with a 17-year-old on Instagram and invite her back to his hotel. He knew she was 17, but in New York that's legal age of consent, so the leaked "sexts" were creepy but not illegal. He admitted to that flirting in another awkward interview on "Live! With Kelly and Michael":

    "'m embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of, you know, how social media is tricky," Franco said in the 2014 interview. "It's a way people meet each other today. But what I've learned I guess just because I'm new to it is like, you don't know who's on the other end. You meet somebody in person and you get a feel for them but you don't know who you're talking to, and, you know? So I used bad judgment. I learned my lesson."

    If Franco, now 39, goes on to win Best Actor after revived talk of past sexual misconduct allegations, he would be following in the footsteps of the reigning Best Actor winner Casey Affleck.

  16. You Need to Watch Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep Play Each Other's Most Iconic Characters

    29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Opening Night Screening 'The Post' & ReceptionThey're both Oscar-winning actors, so it makes sense, then, that Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep would have no trouble slipping into different personas for the sake of a talk show bit. But watching the pair effortlessly channel some of each other's iconic onscreen characters makes it clear that Hanks and Streep are truly in a league of their own.

    The duo, who star in Steven Spielberg's new drama "The Post," stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday to promote the flick, and Ellen couldn't help but have some fun with the legendary actors. Asking them to perform line readings from some of the other's most famous movies, DeGeneres handed out cue cards -- and in a couple cases, some props -- to help the duo along.

    Unsurprisingly, the results were nothing short of wonderful. We're especially partial to Streep's over the top enthusiasm playing Woody from "Toy Story," breaking the news to Buzz Lightyear that he's just a child's plaything. And if for some reason Streep cannot reprise her role for a potential sequel to "The Devil Wears Prada," let's just say that Hanks is more than capable of performing an amazing Miranda Priestly impression.

    Oh, and he definitely needs to keep that fabulous Margaret Thatcher wig. That's all.

  17. Jennifer Lawrence Becomes a Weapon in New 'Red Sparrow' Trailer

    We've seen Jennifer Lawrence as a mockingjay, and now she's playing a different kind of bird.

    20th Century Fox released the latest "Red Sparrow" trailer Monday ahead of the film's March release. Lawrence stars in the spy thriller as Dominika, a Russian ballerina forced to work as an intelligence officer. In the new preview, we see how complicated her situations becomes after she turns into one of the government's "weapons in a global struggle for power."

    Dominika's weakness, we're told at one point, is that she has a soul. However, by the end we're questioning whether or not that's true. She's been trained in psychological manipulation, and she looks like she's scarily good at her job.

    Joel Edgerton also stars in the film, which is based on Jason Matthews's novel of the same name. The actor plays Nathaniel, a CIA agent attempting to turn Dominika, all while she is tasked with exposing him. It's a little "Mr. and Mrs. Smith"-like -- but a whole lot darker.

    "Red Sparrow" opens March 2.

  18. Golden Globes 2018: Watch Debra Messing Call Out E!'s Pay Gap Live on E!

    US-ENTERTAINMENT-GOLDEN-GLOBES-ARRIVALSAwkward meets awesome all in one clip.

    "Will & Grace" star Debra Messing read E! for filth live on E!'s Golden Globes 2018 red carpet. She did it in the classiest way possible, but make no mistake: She did that, and she did it on purpose.

    This year, many stars wore black to support the Time's Up movement against sexism. Messing discussed what it meant to wear black during her talk with E!'s Giuliana Rancic. During the talk, she referenced E! News' Catt Sadler quitting her job, and saying it was because Jason Kennedy made nearly double her salary -- despite both Catt and Jason starting at E! in the same year, and Catt doing two E! shows.

    Debra Messing: "...I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn't believe in paying their female cohosts the same as their male cohosts. I miss Catt Sadler. We stand with her. That's something that can change tomorrow..."

    Wish they had shown more of Giuliana's face. People have pointed out that Giuliana made a lot more than Jason Kennedy when she had her E! News job, but she was also at E! for a lot longer than Jason, which was part of the point. The pay should reflect the time you put in.

    Watch Debra Messing take E! to task live on their own network:


    — Ziwe (@ziwe) January 7, 2018

    Debra Messing was the first star interviewed on E!'s red carpet show, but others followed her lead when it comes to challenging E!'s pay gap. Laura Dern and Sarah Jessica Parker addressed the issue with Ryan Seacrest. "I know it's affected your network," SJP told Seacrest. "I know that there have been conversations that have been challenging for all of us, but I think it's incredibly timely. It's exciting. And parity and equality and safe work environments, they shouldn't be controversial."

    Messing's "Will & Grace" was nominated for Best Television Series – Comedy.

  19. 'Jeopardy!' On Hold While Alex Trebek Recovers From Surgery

    "Jeopardy!" is going on a brief hiatus while host Alex Trebek recovers from surgery. Trebek shared a video with fans explaining his absence.

    "Some of you may have heard by now, that during the holiday break, I had a slight medical problem." He goes on to explain that he had a subdural hematoma, blood clots on the brain caused by a fall that happened about two months ago.

    According to Deadline, Trebek was admitted to LA's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on December 15 after experiencing complications from hitting his head in a fall in October. He underwent surgery to remove the hematoma on December 16 and was released from the hospital two days later.

    Trebek said that after surgery, his prognosis is "excellent." "I expect to be back in the studio taping more 'Jeopardy!' programs very, very soon," he says in the video.

    Taping is expected to resume in mid-January. Several episodes are already in the can, so the broadcast schedule won't be affected much. But the College Championship, which was set to tape now, will now film in March and air in April.

    The game show host, who is now 77, has bounced back from other injuries: He suffered a mild heart attack in 2012 and had knee surgery in 2015. You may also recall an incident in 2011, when he injured an Achilles tendon after chasing a burglar who had broken into his San Francisco hotel room. Do not mess with the Trebek!

    He just re-signed through 2020 to keep hosting "Jeopardy!," which will be the show's 36th season. That more than cements his Guinness World Record (presented in 2014) for hosting the most game show episodes ever.

  20. 'Step Sisters' Trailer: A Sorority Sex Tape Leads to an Unlikely Step Team

    Get ready for shade, sisterhood, and stepping.

    Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming dance comedy "Step Sisters." The preview introduces Jamilah (Megalyn Echikunwoke), a college student with her sights set on Harvard who is enlisted to help a sorority repair its image. The fictional sorority, Sigma Beta Beta, gets in hot water after one of the sisters is caught on camera having sex on its lawn. Therefore, the dean convinces Jamilah to help them enter a charity step competition to make the members look like "positive contributors to the community."

    The job isn't easy. The SBB sisters are mostly white and don't know how to step. It's up to Jamilah to get them to a point where they won't embarrass themselves. As we see in the trailer, that doesn't always work; one young girl accurately points out that "the shade, it is real."

    Watch below.

    "Step Sisters" hits Netflix Jan. 19.

  21. Anderson Cooper Admits to Walking out of 'The Last Jedi' for a Funny Reason

    CNN Heroes 2017 - Red Carpet ArrivalsSometimes stars are just like us, and other times they're really not. Take Anderson Cooper, for example: The CNN anchor was watching "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" in theaters when he decided -- 45 minutes in, mind you -- that he was too busy to focus on it.

    The actor admitted it to Stephen Colbert during a "Late Show" appearance Tuesday night when the host asked him if he'd seen the box office giant.

    "I got a lot going on," Cooper said. "I had a lot of work to do."

    He clarified that it wasn't a protest or a statement on anything. In fact, he plans to see the film again when he doesn't have "too much in [his] head" and can enjoy it. Still, like many of us, Colbert was shocked that Cooper had paid money to see a movie, only to decide midway through that he needed to step away. The late-night host jokingly likened it to making love to someone and deciding to take a break to get focused.

    Cooper let Colbert have his fun for a bit, but then he deftly moved away from the subject, bringing up a movie he did watch in full, "I, Tonya." Well played, Cooper.

    For their full conversation about "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," watch below starting at 5:31.

  22. A Teen Psycopath Tries Dating in Netflix's 'The End of the F**king World' Trailer

    This is like if Kylo Ren and Rey got their own f-bomb-heavy dark comedy series. It shouldn't be cute. He wants to kill her. But it's cute. Because he's also falling in love with her.

    Netflix recently dropped a surprisingly charming trailer for "The End of the F**king World," which premieres eight episodes this Friday, Jan. 5. Here's the logline:

    "This isn't your usual boy meets girl tale. Come join teenage outsiders James (Alex Lawther) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden) on a road trip like no other. Based upon the graphic novel by Charles Forsman."

    The trailer quickly reveals that 17-year-old James is pretty sure he's a psychopath, and even though school is "beneath" him, he attends to scope out potential victims. When Alyssa approaches him with a blunt insult/flirtation, he decides she'll do.

    Alyssa voice-over: "I kind of think I could fall in love with him."

    James voice-over: "I thought she could be interesting to kill. So I pretended to fall in love with her."

    But then it gets complicated when he actually does start to like her.

    Watch the trailer:He even has daddy issues like Kylo.

    The trailer was just released yesterday and already has more than 2,171,774 views. So that might be a good sign for how many people actually tune in to watch Season 1 this Friday.

  23. 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' Season 2 Reveals Premiere Date in This 'Vile' Teaser

    Look away! Look away!

    "A Series of Unfortunate Events" will, fortunately, return in just a couple of months. Netflix launched the new year with a teaser for Season 2, promising this gloom and doom:

    "2017 was bad, but 2018 will be so much... worse. Just wait until March 30th."

    So there's your Season 2 release date. And here's the teaser, with Neil Patrick Harris' Count Olaf breaking the fourth wall with a New Year's message:Season 1 covered the first four books in Lemony Snicket's (aka Daniel Handler) series. Season 2 adapts books five through nine, including "The Austere Academy," "The Ersatz Elevator," "The Vile Village," "The Hostile Hospital," and "The Carnivorous Carnival." The teaser above gives us glimpses from those books, including Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes), and Sunny (Presley Smith) facing the mob rule of "The Vile Village."

    Season 2 is adding several new faces, including these previously announced stars:

    • Nathan Fillion will play Jacques Snicket, Lemony's (Patrick Warburton) brother.

    • Lucy Punch will play Esmé Squalor, who may or may not be a potential love interest for NPH's Count Olaf.

    • Tony Hale will portray Jerome Squalor, who is married to Esmé Squalor.

    • Sara Rue will start out as a librarian, then "perhaps go on to better things" in a season-long arc.

    • Roger Bart will play Vice Principal Nero who "almost makes Olaf seem like a nice guy."

    Here are the first photos from Season 2 (via TV Guide), showing Lucy Hale as Esmé:

    Watch all 10 "Unfortunate" episodes Friday, March 30 on Netflix. And then wait for Season 3, which has already been given a green light.

  24. Bust into 2018 With the First 'Wreck-It Ralph 2' Teaser

    It's going to be hard to top the magic of 2012's "Wreck-It Ralph," Disney's wildly creative, surprisingly emotional video game-centric flick that's due for a sequel later this year. But a brief new teaser for the follow-up has us itching to see what's in store for our favorite reluctant bad guy with big fists and an even bigger heart of gold.

    The clip, shared by Disney Animation's social media team over the holiday weekend, played up the film's 2018 release date, having Ralph (John C. Reilly) literally bust his way out of 2017 and into the New Year. It's a way not only to celebrate the change in the calendar, but get fans pumped to see more from Ralph, Vanellope (Sarah Silverman), Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), and the rest of the gang from the first film.

    This year he's going to break it 👊 #RalphBreakstheInternet

    — Wreck-It Ralph (@wreckitralph) January 1, 2018

    It doesn't exactly tell us anything about the new flick -- subtitled "Ralph Breaks the Internet" -- but it does remind us how much we love this character. And based on everything we know about the sequel so far (the original Disney princesses! Taraji P. Henson as a sentient search engine!), it certainly sounds like this will be an adventure worth taking.

    "Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2" is due to boot up in theaters on November 21.

  25. 'American Crime Story' Season 2 First Look Explores a Sensational Murder

    It's time to bone up on "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story."

    The second season of the true crime anthology series is diving into a new murder and public frenzy. As the title indicates, the focus this time around is on the 1997 murder of the famed Italian fashion designer. If you don't remember the impact it had on the country, FX Networks released a first look on Thursday that explores just that.

    In the video, interviews with cast members Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez, Darren Criss, and Ricky Martin, as well as executive producers Brad Simpson and Nina Jacobson, are interwoven with scenes from the series. Together, they show how the death of Versace (Ramirez) came about and how it captured national attention.

    "For every season of 'American Crime Story,' what we're interested in is what makes this an American crime, a crime America is guilty of, not just the characters we're exploring," Jacobson tells viewers.

    Watch the first look video below.

    "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" premieres Wednesday, Jan. 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
