Altho Hannibal will be ending its run on NBC at the close of this current third season, the news about the episodes of the show CONTINUES to get better … which only makes Hannibal‘s cancellation all the more tragic. You may recall that at the start of this week, we got to see the excellent new trailer for Hannibal that was released at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend and features very heavily the introduction of the Red Dragon character on the show. As if news of the Red Dragon‘s arrival on Hannibal wasn’t amazing enough, we learn today that Siouxsie Sioux of Siouxsie and the Banshees has composed a piece of original music to be featured on the season 3 finale episode of Hannibal. I mean … that a show of this caliber can be deemed unworthy of airing on TV is just THE saddest thing ever. More »
Leia, Luke & Han in the buliding
Star Wars held its big panel discussion at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday to a packed Hall H of attendees. People have been camped out on the street for days waiting for a chance to gain access to this Star Wars panel discussion and they were treated to a great event. Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo) were in attendance at yesterday’s Star Wars Comic-Con panel discussion (Harrison‘s first public appearance event since his plane crash last March) and, as a bonus, a behind the scenes video was shown to the Hall H audience before it was released in full online. Click the embed above to watch this really fantastic Star Wars Comic-Con Reel. I couldn’t help but get choked up a bit … The Force Awakens really does look like it is going to be movie of truly epic proportions. SDCC is a really fun event to attend in person but I really do love that studios like to share the promo wealth with the rest of the world who cannot be here in person.
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth were in attendance at the San Diego Comic-Con panel discussion for the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 … which you can watch in full in the embedded video above. Clocking in at just over 46 minutes, this panel discussion for Mockingjay – Part 2 is full of fun movie information but, mostly, really great footage of J. Law, Josh and Liam being their usual adorable selves. If you missed out on attending this panel discussion yesterday, here is your chance to see it in full. Enjoy.
I have no words
Matt Damon made his way to Beijing, China this week to attend a press event for his new film The Great Wall. For some ungodly reason, Matt decided to use the opportunity — with the cameras of the world’s media trained directly on him — to debut a new hair’do. As you can see below, Matt is rocking a ponytail these days. I’m guessing that the only reason such a travesty could occur is because he is growing his hair out for a movie role, perhaps his role in The Great Wall. Click below to see Damon‘s new ‘do and see if his longer locks do anything for you. More »
With just over 2 weeks to go before the male stripper film Magic Mike XXL hits theaters, the final promo push for the movie is getting into high gear. Over the weekend, MMXXL stars Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Adam Rodriguez were special guests on the Magic Mike XXL float in the LA Pride Celebration Parade and as you can see below, they delighted and excited fans along the parade route. Channing danced (there’s video!!!), Matt handed out Magic Mike t-shirts & hats and Adam pressed the flesh as their parade float rolled down Santa Monica Blvd. The only downside to any of this was the fact that the 3 MMXXL stars were completely clothed … I mean, we didn’t get to see an ab or a pec or nothing :/ More »
In case you couldn't be there in person
Yesterday we got to see photos from the Gilmore Girls reunion event that took place at The ATX Festival in Austin, TX over the weekend and today we learn that video of the full Gilmore Girls panel discussion has been released for our viewing pleasure. Altho a lucky few were able to attend this event in person, the vast majority of GG fans were only able to hear about the reunion via fan and press reports. Entertainment Weekly magazine, which hosted the panel discussion, has provided full video of the panel discussion which you can watch online … so if you couldn’t be there in person, this is the next best thing.

I would've DIED
Channing Tatum decided to play a little prank on a group of unsuspecting Magic Mike fans by showing up in disguise at an early screening of his new movie Magic Mike XXL. As you can see in the video embedded above, Channing first got into costume and then “begrudgingly” danced with a shirtless male dance troupe before he revealed himself to the assembled audience. OMG, I would’ve DIED if I had been at this screening. This is a fun way to promote the movie, I think. Check out the video and see if you agree.
Mimi takes over

"Tink is the one"
Last week, at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, Timbaland took to the stage to introduce and promote his latest protégée, a Chicago rapper named Tink. In his speech about his new artist, Timbaland revealed that the late Aaliyah spoke to him in a dream and told him to sign her as an artist because he claims that Aaliyah told him, “Tink is the one“. Now, I don’t know about you but I think it’s very significant that Aaliyah is now an A&R agent in death. Click below to watch video of Timbaland making this revelation at SxSW last week and see what you think about his communication with Aailyah from beyond the grave. More »

"If we let the gov't start to legislate love in our lifetime, who do you think is next?"
Scandal star Kerry Washington was awarded the Vanguard Award at the GLAAD Media Awards here in Los Angeles, CA last night and she delivered a stirring and very powerful acceptance speech on the support of same-sex marriage in this country. At one point, in particular, she spoke directly to “Black people today [that tell her] that they don’t ‘believe’ in gay marriage” to make a poignant point about “legislating love” … she said:
So when black people today tell me that they don’t ‘believe’ in gay marriage (pause), the first thing that I say is please don’t let anybody try to get you to vote against your own best interests by feeding you messages of hate. And then I say, you know people used to say stuff like that about you and your love. And if we let the government start to legislate love in our lifetime, who do you think is next? We can’t say that we believe in each others’ fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each others existence and the truth of each others hearts. We must be allies. And we must be allies in this business because to be represented is to be humanized. And as long as anyone, anywhere is being made to feel less human, our very definition of humanity is at stake and we are all vulnerable.
Thank you, Kerry. Very well said. After you click through the gallery presented here to see photos from last night’s GLAAD event, click below to watch Kerry Washington deliver her Vanguard Award acceptance speech in full and be inspired. More »
