Dan Harmon Shuts Down Rumors About ‘Rick and Morty’ Season 3 Delay

29 minutes ago

Rick and Morty” creator Dan Harmon took to Twitter Saturday to shut down rumors that the reason Season 3 was taking so long was because of his feud with co-creator and star Justin Roiland. Instead, he said that the delay is because writing a successful TV show that’s a critical and fan darling is hard. “The reason S3 took long is because it took long to write, because it was S3 of a show that we were scared to make worse than S2 or S1,” he tweeted. “It’s a common yet odd phenomenon. Tail-chasing, perfectionism, overthinking?” Fans have been eagerly waiting for. »

‘Game of Thrones': New Data Shows Which Characters Are the Most Important

58 minutes ago

I was having a conversation with a co-worker the other day when he asked me who the main character on “Game of Thrones” was going into Season 7. Although Sansa certainly shows up the most in the recent trailer, I didn’t have a definitive answer. Luckily, new data provides better insight into the importance of the HBO show’s gigantic cast of characters and asserts who might be the show’s main character. And according to that data, it’s everybody’s favorite scarred — alcoholic dwarf Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage. Analytics firm Looker got its hands on some data from across the internet. »

Fleetwood Mac has had a change or two of style along their 50-year incarnation, but one thing has not changed, and that is the genius of its namesake, Mick Fleetwood.

3 hours ago

He’s now a Grammy award-winning artist, but Ed Sheeran started out like any other struggling artist in Los Angeles: sleeping on a friend’s couch. But for Sheeran, that couch belonged to Jamie Foxx. In an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show,” Foxx — who was promoting “Baby Driver” — said he helped give the musician his start when he came to the city with no place to stay and no money in his pockets. According to Foxx, he met Sheeran at his satellite radio show in Los Angeles. He invited the budding musician to his home and heard his music, »

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Rolls to Franchise-Low $64 Million 5-Day Opening

5 hours ago

Paramount’s “Transformers” franchise may still be a hot ticket overseas, but it seems to have run out of fuel with American audiences. The series’ fifth film, “The Last Knight,” is on pace for a $64.3 million five-day opening after grossing $13.7 million on Friday from 4,069 screens. That opening hits the $63-70 million window set by independent trackers at the start of the week, and the $40-42 million it is estimated to gross from just weekend sales will be enough to give it the No. 1 spot at the box office.

Now that we have had Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, Bill Maher wants to set aside this Sunday to celebrate people who are neither with a new holiday that he’d like to call “I Didn’t Reproduce Day.” The “Real Time” comedian made it perfectly clear during Friday night’s show that he has nothing against having children because, after all, they are the “leaders of tomorrow.” But he thinks it’s time to celebrate single people with a holiday of their own. “We spent a lifetime being the cool aunts and uncles but while we celebrate everybody else nobody celebrates us, »

Bill Maher Offers Support to Activist on ‘Anti-Muslim Extremist’ Watch List

15 hours ago

Bill Maher has been called everything from racist to an Islamaphobe for his heated debates over the nature of Islam, but Friday night he found himself on the same side of the issue when counter-extremism expert, Maajid Nawaz, guested on his HBO show, “Real Time.” Nawaz, who is also the founder of anti-extremist think-tank Quilliam, announced his plan to file a crowd-funded defamation of character lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (Splc), a nonprofit legal advocacy organization specializing in civil rights that put Nawaz on an “anti-Muslim extremists” list. “I’d like to be part of that crowd,” Maher said, »

‘Silicon Valley’s’ Haley Joel Osment on His Career Pivot, TJ Miller’s ‘Sad’ Exit

19 hours ago

Haley Joel Osment plays a fun-loving character on “Silicon Valley” — and the actor himself is having a pretty good time these days, too. The former child star, now 29, is still perhaps best known for early-career roles in “The Sixth Sense” and “A.I.” But he’s quickly earning buzz for his turn as positive-to-a-fault VR expert Keenan Feldspar on Season 4 of the HBO ensemble comedy. “I had a blast,” the actor told The Wrap about shooting his part on “Silicon Valley.” Also Read: 'Silicon Valley' Star Thomas Middleditch on TJ Miller's Exit: 'Lots of Things Could Have Been Done »

CNN Resorts to Sketching White House Press Briefings, Draws Derision

19 hours ago

In response to the White House press team’s troubling habit of refusing to do on-camera press briefings, CNN has found a workaround that also functions as a dry critique: It sent in a courtroom sketch artist. The images Friday provided a much-needed visual element for CNN, and also highlight the silliness of Trump Administration officials refusing to be seen speaking for the chief executive. (Accountability is important, given the president’s propensity for lying, which is meticulously documented here.) Asked this week why briefings are being held off-camera, Trump adviser Steve Bannon explained, “Sean got fat,” referring to embattled press secretary Sean Spicer. »

5 Lessons Learned From VidCon 2017

20 hours ago

You can learn a lot walking around VidCon — the premiere online video conference — and that’s exactly what I’ve done the last three days at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. It’s an in-person opportunity to see the rapid shift in content from traditional mediums to digital outlets. This isn’t a convention for those on the periphery of entertainment — VidCon now represents the mainstream. With that in mind, here’s what I’ve learned after talking to YouTube creators, Instagram influencers, industry suits, and bobbing-and-weaving through hoards of teenagers.

Producer Dr. Luke has dropped his defamation lawsuit against Pebe Sebert, which stemmed from Sebert’s claim that the producer had raped “Tik Tok” singer Kesha, according to court papers obtained by TheWrap.

Betty Gilpin Says Shows Like ‘Glow’ Are a ‘Step In The Right Direction’ For Women On Screen

21 hours ago

Jessica Chastain’s comments at the Cannes Film Festival have spurred the coals in Hollywood’s conversation about about the need for stronger roles for women. Betty Gilpin, one of the stars in Netflix’s new comedy-drama about female wrestling in the ’80s, says that shows like “Glow” are on the right track. “This show is a step in the right direction because it shows us as three dimensional,” she told TheWrap at the Wednesday night premiere at the Arclight Dome in Hollywood. In fact, “Glow” takes traditional female stereotypes and turns them into empowering personas. Created by Liz Flahive »

Trump Bluff About Comey Tapes Could Be a Crime, Expert Says

21 hours ago

Harvard law professor and ardent Donald Trump critic Laurence Tribe says the president may have violated federal law by tweeting a warning about secret tapes of fired FBI director James Comey. “It could readily be viewed, as Trump himself has conceded, as an effort to influence the ‘due administration of justice,’ defined under 18 USC sec. 1503 as criminal obstruction of justice,” Tribe told TheWrap in an email. 18 USC 1503 is a federal criminal law that makes it a crime to try to interfere with an official government investigation. Tribe also tweeted on Thursday that Trump’s tapes threat may be illegal.

Here’s the Loophole That Would Give Lord and Miller a Han Solo Director’s Cut

21 hours ago

Phil Lord and Chris Miller may be fired as the directors of the untitled Han Solo film, but a little-known loophole just might force Disney to let them make their own cut of the film. It’s a longshot, for sure — but it could happen. Here’s how. A rule from Directors Guild — the union that represents movie directors — says the pair have the right to cut their version of the film from the nearly four-month shoot they mounted earlier this year. The catch? They only get to if at least 90 percent of the movie was finished on their watch. »

What Went Wrong with ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Season 9? (Commentary)

22 hours ago

Is it just me, or did this season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” feel lackluster? It’s always tough to judge an episode of the hit reality competition show, as an audience member and fan. There’s so much to love about something that celebrates those who are competing for fame and greatness, and that attempts to educate those outside the Lgbtq+ community. It’s a reality show that pokes fun at other reality shows while also being genuine, inspirational, and actually rewarding to those who do well. That being said, there was something that was missing in Season 9 and »
