FX Renews The Americans

11 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

FX has renewed The Americans for a 13-episode third season, the network announced today. The Cold War drama is currently halfway through its second season, and while the live ratings are nothing to brag about, the show does much better once you factor in DVR viewers, too. Even though FX has been promising for several weeks that an official announcement was nigh, it's still a relief to know, officially, that everyone will be back for more espionage. More sexy espionage. And presumably more espionage-y sex, too.  »

Jaime King's Pilgrim Lbd: Gotta Have It or Make It Stop?

just now | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Please, please please don't tell us the Mayflower gang is having a fashion moment. Jaime King's bib-front Valentino dress is making us feel like we're watching a scene out of Zoolander 2! If "Derelict" was hobo gear gone fancy, what does that make this puritan people mess? The fact that we can't come up with a clever name is probably a good sign that this red carpet Halloween costume is not here to stay. Perhaps if John Smith were in the crowd he'd find something sexy about the Hart of Dixie star's style, but we're coming up short. The Lbd is just a boring, long-sleeved look, and the shoes follow suit. Though it would take a fashion miracle to erase the effects of that ridiculous »

'The Americans' Recap: The Lady or the Seal?

41 minutes ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Since this week's episode is entitled "New Car," it's appropriate to describe it as the point in a long road trip where you leave the rest stop or "Last Chance for Gas" ghost town, with only the final leg of the journey ahead of you  (until the season finale, at least – it was announced today that The Americans has been picked up for a third season). Make sure you have everything you need to fortify yourself (i.e. water, snacks – or in this case, plot threads figured out) for the bumpy ride that's inevitably ahead. »

Sofía Vergara Was "Nervous" Filming Threesome in Fading Gigolo, Got Pointers From Co-Star Sharon Stone

42 minutes ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What makes Sofía Vergara nervous? Well, threesomes is one thing. The beautiful Colombian actress opened up about her big sex scene with co-stars Sharon Stone and John Tuturro in the upcoming film Fading Gigolo, and couldn't help but admit that it made her a little anxious (who could ever imagine why?!). "At the beginning, I was a little nervous because...I've never done anything like this, not in real life or on camera," Vergara reportedly revealed. "So it was a little nerve-wracking." Luckily, she had some help from Stone, who is no stranger to doing racy flicks (like Basic Instinct, for example). "When I arrived on the set, Sharon was very supportive," Vergara »

Review: 'The Americans' - 'New Car'

47 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "The Americans" coming up just as soon as I sell one of my kids... Earlier today, FX announced that "The Americans" had been renewed for a third season, an enormous relief given the great disparity between the show's quality and its live ratings. (Though, as noted in that story, half the audience watches on a DVR delay, a huge percentage for any show even in 2014.) The sense of elation I felt at knowing this great show will be around a while longer (and hopefully live up to the "on our schedule for five years or more" vow of FX's straight-shooting PR chief) comes in a nice contrast to "New Car," an episode whose prevailing emotions are despair and frustration that other people don't believe as deeply as you in the things that you think matter, and that even when they do, belief alone can't prevent great tragedy. »

Is New Line planning to change the title of the final 'Hobbit' film?

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are fan sites, and then there are fan sites. The One Ring has been around long enough that they have earned their spot atop the mountain as the end-all be-all source for news on all things involving the cinematic interpretations of the work of J.R.R. Tolkien. When they call a source reliable, they've been doing this long enough to know what that means, and they wouldn't publish a random rumor unless they were fairly sure there is truth to it. So let's use that as a jumping-off point and just take it as a given that when The One Ring says that New Line is considering a title change for the final chapter of "The Hobbit," there's something to it. The original plan for bringing "The Hobbit" to the screen was to break it into two parts. The first would be called "An Unexpected Journey," and the second would be "There And Back Again. »

A Mrs. Doubtfire Sequel Is in the Works

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In news that has hit us with the force of a run-by fruiting, The Hollywood Reporter announced this evening that a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel is finally in the offing. The reboot would see Robin Williams reuniting with director Chris Columbus, with Elf scribe David Berenbaum attached to write. A sequel has been in the works for years, but only became active again early this year with Berenbaum's involvement. THR reports that "Williams and Columbus are attached and hopeful." We're hopeful too! Along with Dumb and Dumber To, this would mark the second beloved early-nineties comedy classic to get the long-awaited reboot treatment. We think we speak for everyone when we say: don't screw this up, poppets. »

Oliver Stone Spars with Chinese Film Official at Beijing Film Festival

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Beijing – Controversial U.S. director Oliver Stone railed against the notion of international co-productions and warned Chinese filmmakers not to become “bastardized” by attempts to become global.

Stone’s remarks came while taking part in a seminar about international co-productions organized as part of the 4th Beijing International Film Festival.

“Most international co-productions are bullshit. They often don’t work. Money is the dictator,” said the “Wall Street” director. “’Iron Man’? ‘Transformers’? Is it really a Chinese experience?”

Stone said that he finds actors performing in languages other than their own to be compromised.

“Chinese actors when they try and act in English, it doesn’t have the same meaning,” he said. “Words are important. I hope you never bastardize yourselves to become American.”

Stone’s remarks later built into a slow-moving, almost surreal on-stage argument with Zhang Xun, the president of China Film Co-production Corporation, the moderator of the seminar. »

'American Idol' Recap: Demi Lovato Returns (Sort of) to Judge Top 7

1 hour ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In an interesting twist, the remaining seven American Idol singers were given the task of choosing songs for their competition Wednesday. The “Competitors Pick” theme certainly opened up the evening for sabotage, but this bunch seems uninterested in drama, and did a nice job matching up songs for their peers. Mentor Randy Jackson said the theme was more to test the ideas of the Top 7, and some of the suggestions were really interesting. Former X Factor judge Demi Lovato stopped by to talk about her Neon Lights tour and to have a seat next to Jackson to check out
