Matt Damon’s ‘Downsizing’ First Footage Puts American Life Literally Under a Microscope

14 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Paramount surprised CinemaCon audiences on Tuesday with 10 minutes of Alexander Payne’s new drama “Downsizing,” a surprisingly high-concept movie from a filmmaker known for more grounded, down-to-earth moviemaking. How high-concept? Think a Payne-like version of “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.” In the clip, which got a very warm reception from the crowd in Vegas,  Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig play a married couple who attend a presentation about literally shrinking themselves. The pitch is made by Neil Patrick Harris’ character, who has already shrunk himself and now lives in a stunning home, bigger than he could’ve ever dreamed of in the. »

WGA to Send Strike Authorization Vote to Membership

13 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Writers Guild of America’s two boards voted unanimously to send a vote to its membership, raising the stakes in the contract wrangling with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

The board of the WGA West and council of the WGA East have approved the recommendation from the WGA negotiating committee to conduct a strike authorization vote among members of both guilds who have worked under the AMPTP master contract during the past six years — about 6,000 members i total. The negotiating committee took that step on Friday after ending two weeks of contract talks with the AMPTP. The current Minimum Basic Agreement, jointly negotiated by West and East, expires on May 1.

The strike authorization vote does not mean the writers will automatically walk. But a vote by the membership is necessary before the governing bodies of both guilds can call a strike against the studios. The turnout and vote on the authorization question will also »

Judge Napolitano Returns to Fox News Channel’s Air

3 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Andrew Napolitano, the former New Jersey Superior Court judge who was taken off the air at Fox News Channel after suggesting without evidence that President Barack Obama used British intelligence to surveil Donald Trump before he was elected President of the United States, is back on camera at the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news outlet.

Napolitano’s comments alleging wiretapping were repeated by President Trump, who caused an international incident when Britain insisted the charges were “utterly ridiculous.” At the time, Fox NewsShepard Smith told viewers that the network’s news personnel “cannot confirm Judge Napolitano’s commentary.” Napolitano served as a jurist from 1987 to 1995. Napolitano had been off the air since March 20, meaning he was benched, more or less, for a period lasting almost two weeks.

The former judge made an appearance Wednesday during Fox News’ daytime programming anchored by Bill Hemmer and also on Stuart Varney’s morning program on Fox Business Network.

1 hour ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

On Tuesday's Late Late Show, Kristen Bell and James Corden were physically moved by the power of love – but they weren't moved to the same spot. The actress and host sang the classic Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes' duet "Up Where We Belong," made hilarious by fake production errors.

The duo began on the stage, with Bell showcasing her warm vibrato and Corden channeling Cocker's trademark gravelly croon. But the vibe turned comedic seconds later, as the CHiPS actress was lifted way above the host, who hung mere feet off the stage. »

James Corden and Kristen Bell got glammed up to perform an aerial duet of Joe Cocker's and Jennifer Warnes' "Up Where We Belong" On Tuesday's Late Late Show With James Corden.

The singers started out beautifully, but when it came time for them to be lifted in the air, the challenges began. Bell was effortlessly lifted to the ceiling as she sang, while Corden flailed inches above the ground. After a few verses, Corden was brought up while Bell was lowered close to the floor.

"We're supposed to be even," the actress exclaimed. "Can you make us equal?"

'The Boss Baby' Review: This Is Not the Trump-Trolling Toon You're Looking For

1 hour ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Let's address the elephant-sized diaper in the room, shall we? No, The Boss Baby is not about Donald Trump. Not that director Tom McGrath, or screenwriter Michael McCullers, or anyone at Fox or Dreamworks Animation would ever say that it was; it's safe to assume that this adaptation of Marla Frazee's 2010 children's book was in the works long before our current administration slithered its way into office. But given that this tiny tyrant is voiced by none other than Alec Baldwin, who's carved out a lucrative side career imitating an infantile commander-in-chief, »

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

Congresswoman Maxine Waters fired back at Bill O’Reilly after the Fox News host mocked her hair on Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends.”

O’Reilly was asked what he thought of a clip of Waters railing against President Donald Trump and the Republican party. “I didn’t hear a word she said,” O’Reilly joked. “I was looking at the James Brown wig.” O’Reilly apologized for his comments shortly after they sparked backlash online.

Waters responded to O’Reilly’s insult in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Tuesday evening on his show “All In.”

“I’m a strong black woman and I cannot be intimidated,” Waters said. “I cannot be undermined. I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly or anybody,” she said.
