The new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power offers the most detailed look at the series yet. Set thousands of years before the events of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the spirit of J. R. R. Tolkien certainly lives in the new big-budget project from Prime Video. And so does the spirit of Peter Jackson, director of the LOTR film trilogy and master of the sweeping landscape shot. There are plenty in the new show, along with a young Galadriel and Elrond, and lots more. Here's ever
Legendary’s Monsterverse franchise is expanding on Apple TV+ with a new Godzilla series and it has secured a casting coup. Both Kurt Russell and his son, Wyatt, will join the show. It'll be the first time the two act together (Wyatt played a younger version of Kurt's character in 1998's Soldier) and share the same screen.
On Robin Williams's birthday, we're taking a journey through his immense photo album in search of the late actor and comedian's greatest pics. We lost Williams back in 2014 but he remains hugely popular and probably always will be. His comedy, and many of his movies will stand the test of time. Here's a look back at Robin Williams.
Most moms are proud of their kids no matter how rich and famous they become, but Dwayne Johnson's mom takes it to the next level in the biggest fan department. The prime example: The Rock's mom, Ata Johnson, has a shrine devoted to her son in every home she's owned over the years. And the best part is that it's called the "Smackdown Room," which pays homage to his early wrestling days.The actor talked about the Smackdown Room on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and told guest host Kerry Washington: "
It's hard to believe the early '00s were 20 years ago now, but it's far easier to see when you look back at the red carpet fashion from back then. You know, when there were jeans at awards shows and highly regrettable scarf situations, and those are just the beginning. We looked back to 2002 to find the worst of the worst in red carpet style. Enjoy!
It's no coincidence there's so much crossover among the biggest franchises in the world. From Star Wars to Harry Potter to Game of Thrones, the actors are often the same. That rings especially true for Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies and the world of Marvel. Here's a look at the actors who've done both.
The Office, based on the British series of the same name, ran for a total of nine seasons — from March 24, 2005 until May 16, 2013. In that time, the show rose to become a hit series. But it really gained a devoted fandom after it ended, when it streamed on Netflix. Almost 20 years later, let's check in with the ensemble cast. Some became giant stars, some stayed friends and started podcasts, and some just played golf.
At this point, we can all agree that Ryan Gosling has basically not aged in the last 20 years. If anything, he's actually gotten better looking — which is quite evident when you look at him (and his abs) in the first promo shot for the Barbie movie and realize that he's basically become his Ken character at the recent Gray Man premieres. The guy is just really, really ridiculously good looking. Even in the early '00s, Gosling exuded a confidence and attractiveness that has only grown over the ye
Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman's 50-year marriage is one that will always live in Hollywood history. And now there's an HBO Max documentary coming out about their lives and careers. The Last Movie Stars (debuting July 21) was directed by Ethan Hawke and executive produced by Martin Scorsese. It features old interviews with friends of the couple, as well as archival footage and current interviews with their daughters. “It’s an honor to get to share Joanne and Paul’s inspiring life and love story
From September 22, 2004, to May 23, 2010, Lost was one of the biggest TV shows in the world. Created by Jeffrey Lieber, J. J. Abrams, and Damon Lindelof, the showrunners were inspired by Cast Away — they wanted to make their own Robinson Crusoe tale. Using flashbacks, the series unfolds the mystery of Oceanic Airlines Flight 815, which crashes somewhere in the Pacific, stranding the ensemble cast. Lost made stars of many. Let's catch up with the main players, almost 20 years later.
The Aussie wave of actors in Hollywood started with Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett in the late '90s. Heath Ledger was right behind them. Naomi Watts, Eric Bana, Guy Pearce, Isla Fisher, the Hemsworths, and many more were en route. So, what's in the water down under? Acting fuel?Part of the secret of their success is how the Australians support each other. Ledger was one of the biggest champions of his home country, before and after his 2008 death. He really had his friends' backs. Here's a qui
In 2012, The Dark Knight Rises attempted to live up to one of the greatest sequels ever made and the greatest action film of the 2000s — The Dark Knight. To do it, director Christopher Nolan needed a villain who could one-up the Joker. So he picked Bane, the hulking beast who breaks Batman's back in the comics. Tom Hardy was cast in the role and he brought with him a unique choice of speech. Now, a decade after the film's release, it's Hardy's portrayal that's most memorable — and it's because o
Emilia Clarke suffered from brain aneurysms while filming Game of Thrones in 2011 and 2013 and in a recent interview she detailed just how amazing it is that she survived the aneurysms and can still speak. "The amount of my brain that is no longer usable — it's remarkable that I am able to speak, sometimes articulately, and live my life completely normally with absolutely no repercussions," she saidon BBC One's Sunday Morning program. She added: "I am in the really, really, really small minority
Over the weekend, Bruce Willis and his wife, Emma Heming Willis, took a trip down memory lane for the 34th anniversary of Die Hard. The Willises visited the roof of the Fox Plaza building — aka Nakatomi Plaza, on Saturday. And Mrs. Willis made a tribute video of the moment cut with highlights from the 1988 action (and Christmas) classic. "On top of Nakatomi Plaza 34 years later," she captioned the clip.
What goes around really does come around in Hollywood. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were one of the hottest couples around from 2002 to 2004 and after being apart for more than 17 years, they finally made it down the aisle over the weekend. Whether they remain a celebrity love story for the ages or implode down the line, you have to appreciate the amazing red carpets they've shared from the early '00s and again over the last 18 months. Check out 20 years of Bennifer photos below.
Over the weekend, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck finished what they started 20 years ago and went and got hitched in Las Vegas. While that's cute and sweet and all, we can't help but chuckle at what their lives were like on their first go-around, specifically their 2002 music video for J.Lo's "Jenny From the Block." Specifically the fact that the music video included glorious scenes like then-wholesome Affleck rubbing his then-girlfriend's butt on a yacht.
There's seemingly a lot going right in Chris Evans' life — he's one of the worlds highest-paid actors thanks to his excellent Captain America work, he's in a flashy new Netflix movie with hottie Ryan Gosling, and at 41 he has an excellent hairline. However, in a recent interview with Shondaland, he lamented being single. When asked what he's been laser-focused on, he took a minute to think then pulled at the heart strings. "You know what, we're gonna do this. We're gonna get — I'm going to give

In 1983, The Outsiders brought 18-year-old author S. E. Hinton's 1967 novel to the big screen. Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma where warring gangs of "greasers" and "socs" battle for respect, the movie speaks for young generations of Americans. And it still does. The cast turned out to be legendary. Everyone became stars, some more than others. Decades later, let's catch up with Ponyboy, Dally, Johnny, and the rest.
There'll never be another Philip Seymour Hoffman. Let's get that out of the way. However, the world needs more actors like him. His 2014 death at age 46 left a gaping hole in the movie landscape. Hoffman was a singular talent, capable of raucous hilarity and also severe drama. It's his specificity as a character actor that's missed. But there's one who's stepped into the void — Paul Walter Hauser.
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick have been married for 34 years and celebrity love stories don't get much sweeter. They met on the set of the PBS version of Lanford Wilson's play Lemon Sky in 1988 and married in September that year. Since then, they've starred in four movies together, welcomed two kids, and become one of the cutest famous couples on Instagram. In fact, most of Bacon's grid is filled with past and present pictures of him and his wife and the whole thing reads like one enormous memor
Dragons, dragon hunters, sci-fi, post-apocalypse, tattoos, axes, Christian Bale... All these things can be found in Reign of Fire, the greatest dragon movie ever made. If that sentence sounds weird, look it up. Reign of Fire reigns supreme because it's a bad-ass, morose adventure, and because there's a stunning lack of competition. Game of Thrones is the best dragon thing out there, we can all agree. But movie-wise, it's the 2002 Rob Bowman-directed Reign of Fire.
