‘Zootopia’ Wins Best Animated Feature at 2017 Annie Awards

With Oscar season just around the corner, now is the time for all the smaller award shows to announce their big annual winners. Earlier this weekend, we saw the Directors Guild of America give their biggest honors to movies and television shows such as La La Land, Game of Thrones, Veep, and O.J.: Made in America. And now it’s time for the animation industry to share their selections for the best animated films and television shows of 2016.

DGA Awards Honor ‘La La Land’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ Directors

When it comes to predicting future Oscar winners, few institutions are as prescient as the Directors Guild of America. Only once in the past decade has the DGA honored a filmmaker who did not go on to win the Academy Award for Best Director; that took place in 2012, when the DGA selected Ben Affleck for Argo while the AMPAS went with Ang Lee and Life of Pi. If the DGA selects you as the best director of the previous year, you might as well start working on that Oscar acceptance speech.

Discover the Creepy New Poster and Super Bowl Teaser for ‘Life’

Here’s something I’ve never been able to fully understand about myself: I find haunted house movies terribly boring and haunted space station movies absolutely terrifying. Take your typical spooky movie  —  with old buildings, dark hallways, and moving shadows  —  and I could fall asleep right there in the theater. But kick that spooky movie up into space and give the characters some space suits? As far as I’m concerned, that makes anything an instant classic — and I’ve got the Event Horizon ticket stubs to prove it.

CBS Orders ‘S.W.A.T.’ Pilot From ‘Fast Five’ Director Justin Lin

Columbia Pictures
Last week, news broke that Fox would be adapting its sorta-but-not-really popular Behind Enemy Lines movie series for television, and countless people  —  myself included  —  wondered aloud if Hollywood needed to cool it with the small screen adaptations of middling action movies. Not to be outdone, CBS announced today that it would be moving forward with a similar adaptation, this time bringing the sorta-but-not-really 2003 movie S.W.A.T. to television.

‘Logan’ Finally Offers Hope for Mutants in These New TV Spots

Unlike a lot of superhero movies, Logan seems to have kept its cards pretty close to its chest. Even though we’ve known the rough outline of the film for a while now, it wasn’t until this past week that we were finally treated to a full synopsis of the film. And while the footage we’ve seen has been enticing, it’s also been pretty carefully curated to reveal as little of the big picture as possible. In other words, James Mangold and Hugh Jackman have set the hook and now are just cruelly letting us run ourselves out.

American Humane Disproves ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ Animal Abuse Video

With everyone’s feeds full of horrible news stories these days, you’ve probably already forgotten about the video of alleged animal abuse on the set of A Dog’s Purpose. Back in January, TMZ shared leaked footage of animal handlers aggressively dragging their canine star into a tank of water. The clear signs of the dog’s panic caused an internet firestorm, with star Josh Gad distancing himself from the project and PETA calling for an immediate boycott of the film. A Dog’s Purpose still performed well enough in its opening weekend, but the scandal no doubt cost it ticket sales at the box office.

Kristen Stewart Is Haunted in the New ‘Personal Shopper’ Trailer

The latest Kristen Stewart project to finally hit our shores is Personal Shopper, a kind of ghost story that made waves at Cannes and the Toronto Film Festival last year. Stewart and director Olivier Assayas previously collaborated on 2015’s fantastic Clouds of Sils Maria, and their second project together has been pretty divisive, but Stewart made our Best of TIFF list for completely carrying this movie all on her own. A new trailer heralds the film’s US release, which opens next month.

John Lithgow Cast in ‘Pitch Perfect 3,’ Probably Not as One of the Bellas

Pitch Perfect 2 wasn’t as hilarious and fun as its predecessor, but it was good enough to warrant another sequel. Pitch Perfect 3 will hit theaters this December, and as such is gathering a few additions to its cast. While the main Barden Bellas are returning, as well as Elizabeth Banks, there’s plenty of room for some new faces, and today john Lithgow has officially joined the cast.

Hear John Legend and Ariana Grande’s New ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Theme Song

When you were a kid, did you ever spend time with like, an aunt who listened to those adult contemporary radio stations — the ones that were all Michael Bolton and Toni Braxton and Celine Dion? You know, the stations that played “Margaritaville” and the Beauty and the Beast theme song every hour on the hour. If you don’t remember, then maybe Ariana Grande and John Legend’s cover of “Beauty and the Beast” will jog your memory.

Must Watch: Keanu Reeves Was an Awkward Teen Reporter on a Kids’ TV Show

If someone asked you to recall Keanu Reeves’ earliest acting gig, you might think of Parenthood or Babes in Toyland. As it turns out, the intensely likable star of John Wick: Chapter 2 started his career a bit earlier than that, and like us non-famous folks, Reeves’ first job wasn’t exactly pleasant; in fact, it was kiiiiiind of awkward, but that just makes this little-seen footage of Reeves as a teenage reporter on a Canadian kids’ show all the more rewarding.
