Watch the New Teaser Trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”

Friday, November 28th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Buena Vista(NEW YORK) — There’s been a whole lot of hype for 88 seconds, but it’s finally arrived: the teaser trailer or the new Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is now in 30 theaters across North America, and also online, via iTunes Trailers and the official Star Wars YouTube channel.

The clip opens with a shot of a desert planet, and a chilling voiceover saying “There’s been an awakening, have you felt it?” The voice sound suspiciously like Benedict Cumberbatch, who appeared in the most recent Star Trek reboot, Into Darkness. Both the new Star Wars film and the Star Trek reboots were directed by JJ Abrams.

Then, a helmet-less Stormtrooper — played by franchise newcomer John Boyega — pops into the frame, followed by shots of droids, scenes of a squadron of Stormtroopers about to emerge from a ship, a woman — fellow newcomer Daisy Ridley — flying some sort of airborne vehicle, fighters zooming along, and a hooded figure tramping through a snowy woods, brandishing a new-look lightsaber. We hear an even scarier voice saying, “The dark side…and the light.”

Then, John Williams’ iconic score kicks in and we see…Han Solo’s ship, the Millennium Falcon. Cue goosebumps.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18, 2015. It takes place 30 years after 1983’s Return of the Jedi.

The Scary Prank Jennifer Aniston’s Fiance Pulls on Her Late at Night

Friday, November 28th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Ari Perilstein/Getty Images for LTLA(NEW YORK) — Jennifer Aniston has an amazing sense of humor, being that she is an A-list actress who is constantly in the spotlight.

So it would make sense that her fiance Justin Theroux also has a comedic side.

The Cake star, 45, spoke about the prank Theroux pulls on her late at night when she’s not paying attention.

“He’s so brilliant at everything he does. He’s a wonderful actor, he’s a brilliant comedy writer. He’s also a beautiful artist … And a beautiful human being,” she said on The Talk about the Leftovers star. “He loves to scare me. He hides in closets for 20 [minutes]!”

In fact, she said he did it earlier this week!

“He was shutting down the house and I get distracted cleaning up a pile of whatever … and I don’t come right away and I’ll get to the bedroom and he just comes flying out of a closet. I go, ‘Have you been waiting here for like 25 minutes? … You, really, just 25 minutes in the closet?’” she added.

She continued that “it’s fun.”

Aniston also touched on the constant tabloid reports about her personal life.

“I don’t pick them up,” she said of the rumors in magazines. “I’ll have people send a picture of a newsstand, where they’ll be ‘Baby Joy’ or “Marriage’ or ‘Eloped’” she said of possible headlines.

She joked about that “close source,” which she said, “Not very close, not very good friend.”

Walker died Nov. 30, 2013, in a car accident near one of his charity Reach Out Worldwide events. Cody Walker has since taken the charity under his wing to keep it alive and thriving.

“ROWW continues to be, to function, to help others even after our primary contributor, my brother, Paul Walker has passed,” Cody told E! News. “I know he would be so stoked to know that. ROWW changed his life, and he was so proud of it.”

The mission of Reach Out Worldwide includes collecting toys and backpacks for less fortunate kids. Cody, 26, and the charity even went to the Philippines to help after Typhoon Haiyan late last year.

Cody Walker also talked about what his famous brother taught him up until his death at age 40.

“Just live your life to the fullest. Laugh a lot, love and find your true happiness,” Cody said. “Remember that no matter how cool you think you may be, you’re not cool enough to look down on anyone, ever. I am so lucky to have had him as a big brother.”

Cody and his brother Caleb stepped in to help finish Furious 7 when some scenes were left after Paul’s death. Furious 7 opens April 3, 2015.

Johnny Depp Opens Up About Recent Movie Flops

Thursday, November 27th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) –  Johnny Depp has nothing to prove to anyone.

The Oscar-nominated actor and icon, 51, recently told Details magazine that he is no longer worried about the perception of what makes a movie a hit. He opened up about recent films that have done less than what is expected of the Prates of the Caribbean star.

“What is really satisfying is, like Marlon [Brando, one of his mentors and icons], getting to that place where he just didn’t give a f—,” Depp told the magazine. “First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so f—– much that it gets g—— beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens. Suddenly you care enough to not give a f—, because not giving a f—, that’s the total liberation. Being game to try anything.”

Depp, whose recent movies like The Lone Ranger, did poorly at the box office, said hits like Pirates often happen by accident and are hard to replicate.

“It’s like being a dog at the track,” Depp added. “They expect you to live up to some race you happened to be in and won accidentally. From that first second, you’re nothing more than a commodity. They have expectations of another Pirates. It’s great if something works. Boy, that’s killer. But God, to have that as your design . . . it’s ugly, I think.”

Finally the reclusive Depp said even though he is a legend and a sex symbol, “I’m f—– shy … I’m living, in a sense, like a fugitive. I don’t like to be in social situations. It’s fine for me in a weird way, having to run and hide. Less and less, I have the opportunity to observe, because I’m the one being observed.”

Taylor Swift Jokingly Called Out Justin Long for Singing “Shake It Off” at Knicks Game

Thursday, November 27th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Photo: Darren Michaels/Warner Bros. ©2013 Warner Bros. Television. // Image Group LA/ABC(NEW YORK) — Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” is definitely a song that gets stuck in your head and you find yourself singing without even knowing it.

But to be singing the song while sitting right next to her — that’s a different story, but that’s exactly what happened to actor Justin Long.

“At one point they were playing that song,” Long told HuffPost Live about sitting next to Swift at a Knicks game earlier this week. “That song, you all know it and I think had been playing over the speakers. It’s one of those songs that really gets in your head, really crawls in there.”

The Yoga Hosers actor, 36, said he “sang it to myself, like absent minded.”

“And of course she heard it,” he added. “And she was like, ‘Oh,’ and sort of started laughing, and I was so embarrassed.”

He said it just got in his head and he didn’t even realize.

“I didn’t do it so she would hear me. I wouldn’t have done it had I been all that conscious of all that,” he said.

But, in the end, Long said Swift was really sweet about it and was actually grateful.

Bill Cosby to Resign Role as Co-Chair of UMass-Amherst’s Capital Campaign

Thursday, November 27th, 2014 by

Posted in Entertainment News

Photo by: Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(AMHERST, Mass.) — In the wake of renewed sexual assault allegations against him, Bill Cosby has agreed to resign his role as co-chair of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst’s capital campaign.

Cosby is an alumnus of the school’s College of Education, through which he received a master’s degree and a doctorate. UMass spokesperson Edward Blaguszewski issued a statement to ABC News, saying that Cosby “has agreed to resign as an honorary co-chair of UMass Amherst’s capital campaign. He no longer has any affiliation with the campaign nor does he serve in any other capacity for the university.”

The Boston Globe says that Cosby and his wife had donated to the school’s ongoing $300 million fundraising campaign.

A series of women have claimed to have been sexually abused by the 77-year-old comedian over the years. Earlier this month, Cosby’s attorney issued a statement in which he referred to the allegations as “decades-old” and “discredited.”

UMass is not the first organization to cut ties with Cosby. Last week, Netflix postponed the launch of a stand up comedy special. Cosby has never been charged in connection with the accusations.
