We’re still waiting to hear whatever became of Dr. Dre’s Apple series with Sam Rockwell and Ian McShane, but in the meantime, Apple is preparing to launch its first reality show with Planet of the Apps. It’s basically Shark Tank, but for app developers, with bonus Gwyneth Paltrow!
We’re less than a week away from yet another entry into the late-night world, albeit a unique streaming experience only Netflix’s Chelsea can offer three nights a week. See for yourself, as Handler’s first week will include everyone from Drew Barrymore to Civil War’s Team Cap, and far from just sitting behind a desk.
Plenty of fans have been jokingly referring to Captain America: Civil War as Avengers 2.5, since it boasts almost the entire Avengers lineup, introduces Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and includes villains and supporting characters both old and new. It’s…a lot. And it looks like there’s at least one more character to add to Marvel’s super-pile, as Gwyneth Paltrow has been confirmed to return as Iron Man pal Pepper Potts.
Of course, the real joke of 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's adoration for translating current rap and hip hop songs into Broadway versions is simple, it's in the text. It's current songs made into Broadway versions. Easy! But the difference between an okay "Broadway covers" sketch and a great one is how much Fallon and his chosen guest sell it.
The new 'Mortdecai' trailer has all of the necessary elements to make us write it off completely: Johnny Depp doing a dumb voice, Johnny Depp with a dumb moustache, Johnny Depp wearing at least two stupid hats and well, lets be honest here, the mere presence of Johnny Depp in a 2014 movie. And yet, there's something about this movie that intrigues us and grabs our attention, despite our better judgment.
Even lauded talents star in terrible films, but sometimes—as is the case with these ten thespians—they happen to star in the worst of the bunch during the exact same calendar year that they turned in those Oscar-worthy works. Oops.
Although the trailer doesn't sell any of the plot of 'Mortdecai,' it does sell Johnny Depp's newest weird character: a snobby art dealer who appears debonair but is actually a bit of a bumbling oaf. Depp doesn't wear any silly hats this time around, but he does have a silly mustache and a wacky accent, so everything balances out in the end.
Problematic though Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has proven, the recent announcement that Jaimie Alexander will put in an appearance as ‘Thor’’s Lady Sif has us excited for Marvel’s TV adventure all over again. So we had to wonder, what other Marvel Cinematic Universe characters could ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ attract, from a purely practical standpoint? And how might they figure into the story?
The fifth season of FOX's starmaking 'Glee' became mired by change with the death of actor Cory Monteith, as well as news that a sixth season would likely prove the last for the series. Now, FOX president Kevin Reilly reveals even more change on the horizon, as the remainder of the fifth season will shift focus to its New York setting, potentially moving the series there for the duration of its run.
'The Avengers 2,' titled 'Age of Ultron,' will see Marvel's superhero gang do battle against (as the title suggests) the comic-book villain Ultron, but one character of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who will likely sit this one out is Iron Man's squeeze, Pepper Potts.
