We’ve all been there. Opening weekend of that giant blockbuster you’ve been dying to see so much that you’ve actually braved a movie theater on its opening weekend. You even got there early, stood in line for a ticket, and wiggled your body into a prime viewing position, snacks in hand as you wait for the main attraction to begin. And then, just after you silenced your phone, in walks someone with a stroller or a tiny human who in almost any other circumstance you would have found just ah-dorable. But in this moment you simply feel a chill as fear creeps up the back of your neck. What do you fear? The strong likelihood that your night out is about to get jacked by a crying, talking, or otherwise noisy or disruptive child. READ FULL STORY »
Steve Carell’s Gru and crew are back!
In a new clip from Despicable Me 2, Carell’s Gru seems to be softening up from his evil ways — but that doesn’t mean he wants to socialize. Enlisting his youngest daughter Agnes, he attempts to keep unwanted house guests away, but fans know things rarely work in his favor right away. While obviously geared at kids, the movie attracted adult A-list talent. In addition to Carell, the film will feature the voices of Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, and Miranda Cosgrove.
Check out the clip below — which obviously features at least one minion sighting: READ FULL STORY »
Composer Mark Mancina’s work is on full display in this new Planes video. The mellow, breezy video feels like a long summer car ride with the wind flowing through your hair. Of course, in this movie you’re flying over intricate landscapes, not driving. Although the film is described as an “action-packed” 3D experience, this dialogue-free video lets the drama build with the music. So grab a glass of iced tea and get swept away: READ FULL STORY »
Put down your bows and arrows, Brave fans. After more than a week of concern over the changed appearance of our favorite animated redhead, a Disney rep tells EW that there’s no cause for alarm: Merida’s seemingly sexier image was only created for the heroine’s official induction into the Disney Princess Collection and was always planned to be phased out within a few months of the coronation.

Sony Pictures Entertainment has purchased the worldwide distribution rights to the Angry Birds animated 3D film. Rovio Entertainment, the creators of the game, will develop, finance, and produce the movie.
“Every studio in town would love to add Angry Birds to their slate,” said two chairmen of Sony Pictures Entertainment in a joint statement. “There are few titles out there that bring this kind of excitement, brand awareness and built-in audience to the table.”
So there you have it. We really hope the movie delves into the deep and painful backstory of the pigs. Right now the film has a July 1, 2016 release date.
The Fosters — a one-hour daytime drama that follows a pair of lesbian mothers (Teri Polo and Sherri Saum) and their multi-ethnic family — is about to get a whiff of Scandal.
ABC Family tells EW that actor Sam McMurray has landed the recurring role of Frank Foster, the “gruff but loveable divorced father” of Polo’s character, Stef. Fans of Shonda Rhimes’s addictive ABC series may recognize McMurray as Pat Wexler, the U.S. Attorney who fired fellow lawyer David Rosen (Josh Malina) earlier this season.
ABC Family says that while Frank seems to get along with his daughter, he also “makes it painfully clear that he still harbors reservations about her lifestyle.” In that, the character isn’t alone — the anti-gay group One Million Moms announced that it was preemptively boycotting The Fosters (and executive producer Jennifer Lopez) last October, long before the pilot had been shot or even cast.
The Fosters will premiere Monday, June 3.

They then find themselves babysitting three young kids, and soon after, Sam & Cat’s Super Rockin’ Fun-Time Babysitting Service is born.
