Ludacris Stands Ground While James Corden Fires an Apple at His Face (Video)

26 minutes ago

“Fate of the Furious” star Ludacris joined “The Handmaid’s Tale” actress Elisabeth Moss on Wednesday for a fruit salad-tastic game of James Corden’s “Flinch.” The rapper/actor went first, and proved he wasn’t scurred at all. The “Mad Men” alum was a totally different story. To be fair, she had far-less street cred on the line. Third-up was Eugenio Derbez, who had a pretty good quip about “The Late Late Show’s” plexiglass barrier: “If you hit the wall too hard and it cracks, I’m warning you: I know I’m Mexican, but I’m not gonna pay for that wall, »

Bill O’Reilly Defends Ann Coulter Against ‘Snowflake Fascists on College Campuses’

34 minutes ago

Former Fox News star Bill O’Reilly defended Ann Coulter on his “No Spin News” podcast Wednesday night, bashing “snowflake fascists on college campuses.” O’Reilly quoted New York University Provost Ulrich Baer, who recently wrote “As a scholar of literature, history and politics, I am especially attuned to the next generation’s demands to revise existing definitions of free speech to accommodate previously delegitimized experiences. Freedom of expression is not an unchanging absolute.” The former “O’Reilly Factor” host didn’t appreciate the term “delegitimized” when referring to Coulter and made his opinion perfectly clear.

40 minutes ago

Paul Thomas Anderson’s followup to “Inherent Vice,” a London-set fashion drama starring Daniel Day-Lewis, doesn’t open until Christmas. To satiate his fans, the Oscar-nominated director made a surprise collaboration ahead of that film’s release: a music video for Haim’s new single, “Right Now.” The song is the lead song off the band’s sophomore album “Something to Tell You,” which arrives July 7, four years after 2013’s hit record “Days Are Gone.” Anderson’s video is one long take of a live studio recording of the single.

NBCU Boss Steve Burke Appeals to Hollywood: ‘Strikes Aren’t Good for Anybody’

1 hour ago

NBCUniversal Steve Burke on Thursday weighed in on the looming Hollywood writers strike, which is set to start next week if the Writers Guild of America cannot come to terms with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers over a new contract. Not surprisingly, the broadcast and cable executive isn’t in favor of the potential picketing. “Strikes aren’t good for anybody,” Burke said during parent company Comcast’s first-quarter 2017 conference call. “The people on both sides of the table tend to lose.” Also Read: What 'SNL' Will Do If Hollywood Writers Go on Strike Next Week That said, »

‘One Week and a Day’ Review: Shiva Stoner Comedy Is a Hazy Delight

1 hour ago

Tears of laughter and tears of grief are both in abundant supply in Asaph Polonsky’s uproariously funny and heart-wrenchingly moving “One Week and a Day.” Playing in the Critic’s Week sidebar in Cannes, the film examines the grieving process through a haze of pot smoke and sly humor. “One Week and a Day” takes place in the time immediately after the ritual seven days of mourning — the shiva — mandated by the Jewish faith. In some ways, that is the most difficult time of all. After seven highly regimented days, structured by food and friends and prayer, those in. »

‘Get Out,’ ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Help Power NBCU Parent Comcast to Strong Q1

3 hours ago

Comcast is off to a strong start in 2017, thanks in large part to its better box office beginning. The NBCUniversal parent company topped media analyst’s expectations for the first-quarter of the year, with a big nod going to Filmed Entertainment’s 43.2 percent revenue growth. Leading the way to the segment’s $2 billion total were the theatrical performances of “Get Out,” “Fifty Shades Darker,” “Split” and “Sing.” The small-screen also chipped in, with Cable Networks revenue increasing 7.6 percent (to $2.6 billion) versus the comparable quarter in 2016, while Broadcast rose 5.9 percent (to $2.2 billion).

‘The Circle’ Review: Tom Hanks Runs Social Media Cult in Implausible Thriller

9 hours ago

Tom Hanks starred in an adaptation of Dave Eggers’s book “A Hologram for the King” last year, and now he stars again in a film version of an Eggers novel called “The Circle,” an over-the-top and implausible story that tries to be “timely” and “relevant” but mainly hits us over the head with absurd situations. Emma Watson plays the heroine Mae, a sweet-faced girl (with Aaron Copland music as the ringtone on her phone) who is suffering in a bad job at a water company where she has to try to calm down angry people all day.

Fox News’ Jesse Watters Slams Uc Berkeley: No ‘Safe Space for a Conservative’

11 hours ago

Both Fox News personalities Jesse Watters and Tucker Carlson appear to be taking President Trump’s lead, rhetorically twisting the University of California at Berkeley’s free speech legacy against the school. Bill O’Reilly’s heir apparent, Watters, came down hard on U.C. Berkeley, claiming that the school does not provide a “safe space for a conservative.” During Wednesday night’s Fox News broadcast of “The Five,” on which Watters is a newly-minted co-host, he appeared with guest Ann Coulter, who announced earlier in the day that she canceled her scheduled speech at the northern California university after »

‘Bandstand’ Broadway Review: Dance, Soldiers, Dance! Singing Is Another Story

13 hours ago

It has not been a spectacular season for dance on Broadway — until now. A year ago, Andy Blankenbuehler won the Tony Award for choreographing “Hamilton,” against such stiff competition as Savion Glover and his superb work on “Shuffle Along.” This year, there’s almost no competition for Blankenbuehler’s arresting choreography in the new musical “Bandstand,” which opened Wednesday at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Set in post-World War II America, the show almost never stops dancing, and when it does Blankenbuehler keeps the motion going with a few steps here, a few steps there, that in a later scene will. »
