‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Season 3 Promos: The Tech Underdogs Return Once Again

Shailene Woodley: Her best performances so far

For my money, there are few up and coming actresses in Hollywood more exciting to watch than Shailene Woodley. In a relatively short period of time, Woodley has managed to work her way up the A-list, becoming someone whose mere presence in a film is something to be excited about. She’s been snubbed for Academy Award attention at least three times now, for The Descendants, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Spectacular Now, though her time is coming soon enough, perhaps even this year for her supporting work in the biopic Snowden. She’s also been able to anchor a big blockbuster franchise, taking the lead in the Divergent films, which continue this week with The Divergent Series: Allegiant. One thing is for sure, she’s one of the best that the industry has to offer… Here now are Woodley’s best performances to date: 5. Divergent 4. The Descendants

Jurassic Park Cast: Where Are They Now?


65 million years in the making, Jurassic Park is still as popular today as it was 22 years ago. Despite two sequels that provided diminishing – though far from terrible – financial returns in 1997 and 2001, the franchise came roaring back to life this summer with Jurassic World, the staggering success of which proved that the world still very much holds the series dear all these years later.

With another sequel on the way for 2018, the future of the franchise is brighter than ever, but for years all us fans had to tide us over was the original trilogy. Between Jurassic Park, The Lost World and Jurassic Park III, many cast members have come and gone from the series, their characters taking part in numerous unforgettable and iconic moments that we’ll never forget even as time continues to push them further into the past.

This week marks the release of Jurassic World on Blu-ray,

Final Trailer For ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Ventures to a Galaxy Far, Far Away

“I cannot say enough about how Bob Iger and Alan Horn have understood this thing that is now part of the Disney company. And they’re not trying to Disney-fy it, they’re not doing anything other than, I think, an incredibly smart thing, which is letting Kathleen Kennedy — who is a remarkable person and producer — run and lead Lucasfilm to a place where I think it wants to go. They let us make the movie we wanted to make,” director J.J. Abrams said earlier this month during a one-hour talk (watch below in full), also confirming he has final cut on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

While that final cut, clocking in at two hours and 16 minutes, is still just under two months away, today brings a new preview. Disney have now released the final trailer for the film, initially premiering on Monday Night Football, along with tickets available worldwide — that is,

Watch: New Footage From ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Arrives Alongside Theatrical Poster

With under two months until the release of a little film titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney is now gearing up for their marketing onslaught after things have been relatively quiet from their side. In case you missed the debut yesterday, we have high-resolution of both the official theatrical poster and banner image (just click each of the images to download).

Many have wondered about the absence of Luke Skywalker, which sounds like a great surprise to be left for the viewing experience. Also worthy of note is Michael Arndt getting co-writing credit on the screenplay, even though Lawrence Kasdan and J.J. Abrams took over. There’s also Daisy Ridley’s Rey front and center, while Adam Driver‘s Kylo Ren gets top billing after the returning main trio, if you’d like a hint for which of the ensemble will likely get the most screen time.

Spotlight on the Stars: Shailene Woodley

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of Hollywood’s best young women. Without question, there are few better out there than Shailene Woodley, a rising star who literally only has the sky as her sole limit. She’s impressed pretty much from the very start, moving quickly up the industry food chain from a young supporting player to a franchise lead. During that time, she’s also managed to become a bit of a lifestyle icon and a genuine person who stands out in the crowd. All those things and more make her a real A-lister and one well worth this sort of tribute today. Woodley got her start on television with various guest starring roles. Programs like Crosing Jordan, The District, Everybody Loves Raymond, Jack & Bobby, The O.C., Without a Trace, and others gave her a beginning, which of course any young actor or actress needs.

'Cruel Intentions,' 15 years later: A definitive power list

'Cruel Intentions,' 15 years later: A definitive power list
The messed-up machinations of bored, oversexed stepsiblings Kathryn Merteuil and Sebastian Valmont aren’t quite as shocking in 2014 as they were when Cruel Intentions was released on March 5, 1999. (Blame Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and a zillion other glitzy/scandalous imitators.)

That said, Cruel Intentions is still an enormously entertaining teen movie, even 15 years (gulp) after its initial release — thanks to an uncommonly sharp script, a killer soundtrack, and, most importantly, an impeccable cast, which featured future Oscar winners and future Sharknado stars alike. Well, one of each, but you get the picture. Whoever headed up this franchise had a

It's a "Boy Meets World" wedding weekend, fans! Just a day after Danielle Fishel married her longtime beau, Rider Strong has tied the knot with his girlfriend Alexandra Barreto, his rep tells Us Weekly.

The wedding weekend was camp themed, with the guests sleeping in bunks after the festivities. There was also a ropes course, a talent show and organized games for them to play. Strong joked before the weekend, "Let's hope it doesn't rain too much."

Barreto, an actress with such credits as "The District," "Justified" and "The Fosters" to her name, wore a Nicole Miller wedding gown. In attendance was Barreto's "Justified" co-star Natalie Zea and her husband Travis Schuldt of "Scrubs."

'Glee' says goodbye to Cory Monteith: Here's how other TV shows handled a star's death

'Glee' says goodbye to Cory Monteith: Here's how other TV shows handled a star's death
After last night’s Glee, an emotional tribute to Finn Hudson (without revealing his cause of death but rather focusing on his life), we decided to look back at how other television shows have handled a death in the family. The scenario can be traced back to Dan Blocker’s unexpected death before filming began on Bonanza’s final season. As a result, Bonanza was one of the first (if not the first) television show to address an actor’s death, and it did so by killing off Hoss, Blocker’s character. Many shows have followed that same path, while

New Japanese Trailer & First Clip From ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’
