From the episode 'I Won't Be Home For Christmas'
Fox has just released the couch gag video for The Simpsons holiday episode I Won’t Be Home For Christmas and it’s a veritable work of absolute genius. The whole opening credits video has been Xmasified entirely (love the quick shout out to the Hindu god Vishnu) and the couch gag part at the end has been devoted to Frozen, naturally. It’s effing brilliant, is what it is. Check it out above and fall in love.

Yes, a cover of Mariah Carey's Xmas song
Fifth Harmony, the all girl pop group that came out of The X Factor here in the US, has just released a music video for their cover version of Mariah Carey‘s massive holiday pop hit All I Want For Christmas Is You. As you can see/hear above, the Fifth Harmony ladies stick pretty close to the original version of the song even as they try to infuse a bit of their personalities into the music video. Now, I’m sure hearing about Fifth Harmony‘s video for this song has reminded you of Mariah‘s iffy performance of All I Want live on national television this week so in order to keep you on topic, you can click below to hear Fifth Harmony perform All I Want For Christmas Is You LIVE at the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington DC this week.

Yesterday we got to see a batch of really great promo photos from the forthcoming Lifetime made-for-TV movie about the life of Whitney Houston. Today we get to see the just-released trailer for Whitney. As you can see above, this trailer already looks better than any biopic movie that Lifetime has already released this year so in that regard, it’s already a winner. I had a feeling having Angela Bassett in the director’s chair would elevate this TV movie to higher ground. It’s obviously too soon to tell judging solely from one trailer but I already love what I see, do you? Whitney will premiere on Lifetime on January 17.
Coming January 26
Last month we learned that MTV Challenge star Diem Brown lost her battle with cancer and passed away at the far too-young age of 32. Just last week, it was reported that fellow MTV Challenge star Ryan Knight, 29, passed away as well. Today we learn that MTV has announced the release date for the new season of The Challenge titled Battle of the Exes II (which was filmed earlier this year). Along with the release of the first cast promo photo, MTV is also announcing that the new season of the show will be dedicated to the memory of Diem and Ryan. More »

Last month we got our first look at the forthcoming second season of the HBO series Looking and today we get a second, longer look. The network has just released a first official trailer for Looking season 2 that shows us actual scenes from the show, giving us our first taste of the drama to come. New boyfriends, love triangles and hot tubs. Yep, it looks like Looking is coming back for more of the same. The new season of Looking will premiere on HBO on Sunday January 11.

Yes, Arnold says "I'll be back"
In August we learned the title, in October we got our first look at the characters, yesterday we saw the motion poster and today — we get to see the first trailer for the upcoming sequel/reboot film Terminator: Genisys. As you can see above, Genisys looks more like a retelling of the Terminator origin story rather than an actual sequel … tho, it would appear that the plot is open enough for interpretation to make an argument that this is a sequel. I dunno. The trailer looks much better than I was anticipating so that’s the good news. Terminator: Genisys will open in theaters next summer. Does it look like something you’re dying to see?

Daniel Craig is joined by Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci and more
Earlier this week, we were alerted to the fact that a major worldwide press announcement would be made today about the forthcoming 24th James Bond film, the first since 2012′s hugely successful Bond film Skyfall. A few hours ago, it was formally announced that the next Bond film has been titled Spectre and will star Daniel Craig as 007 alongside Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott and Monica Bellucci. Spectre, as you bond fans may know, is the name of the fictional terrorist organization whose name is an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion (think Marvel Comics‘s S.H.I.E.L.D. nemesis HYDRA). Clearly, the next James Bond film will be focused on the baddies. Sounds good, no? Click below to see Bond‘s new Aston Martin DB10 car, the film’s first poster and watch video from this morning’s press announcement. More »
Full Team: Assembled
Things have quieted down a bit since the latest trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron was released in November but today we get our first look at a very important character from the film. Vision is a member of The Avengers superhero team and up until now, he was not been seen in any of the promo materials released for the sequel film NOR was he even mentioned at all in the first film. BUT, an industrious fan happened upon a new promo image for Age of Ultron that shows, for the first time, what Vision (played by Paul Bettany) will look like in the new movie. Have a look below and meet the movie-version of Vision. More »
NBC just released the promo videos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live which will feature actor James Franco as the guest host and as you can see above, these promo videos show James Franco acting all James Franco … which means this weekend’s episode of SNL will be all James Franco-y soooo … yeah. On the plus side, Nicki Minaj will be the musical guest this weekend so that’s something to look forward to. Right?
