Let’s See What Hints We Can Find in These 28 Screenshots from the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Trailer (Photos)
“Game of Thrones” Season 7 is just a few short weeks away. In HBO’s first major trailer for the season, we’ve gotten a ton of glimpses at what to expect — starting with a full-scale war with the Lannisters taking on the rest of Westeros. We’ve poured through the rest of the trailer to see what hints can be gleaned. Cersei (Lena Headey) went darker than she ever has before at the end of Season 6, and she’s clearly taking her battle queen approach even further this season. The opening image of the trailer: a shadowy Cersei preparing for war. »

Ellen DeGeneres Lands New Netflix Stand-Up Special
Ellen DeGeneres will appear in a brand new stand up special for Netflix, Variety has confirmed.
“It has been 15 years since I did a stand-up special. 15 years,” DeGeneres said in a statement. “And I’m writing it now, I can’t wait. I’ll keep you posted when and where I’m gonna shoot my Netflix special. I’m excited to do it; I’m excited for you to see it.”
DeGeneres got her start in stand up comedy before transitioning into acting and then hosting her syndicated daytime show. Now going into its fifteenth season, the show has earned a total of 59 Daytime Emmy Awards. She also had the honor of hosting the Academy Awards, the Primetime Emmys, and the Grammy Awards. Most recently, President Obama presented DeGeneres with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in November 2016.
The new special will mark her first since 2000, when she appeared in “Ellen DeGeneres: The Beginning” for HBO.

‘Twin Peaks’: Former Series Star Joan Chen Pitches Her Character’s Wild Return to David Lynch
David Lynch’s wildly anticipated “Twin Peaks” revival is kitted out with plenty of talented faces — over 200, both old and new — but there’s still a handful of original stars who were not tapped to return for the Showtime series. One of them is Joan Chen, who played Josie Packard during the show’s original run (and, incidentally, was the very first face to appear in the series’ very first episode, way back in 1990).
Chen, however, is eager to change that, and The Hollywood Reporter shares a compelling — and kind of wild — letter from the actress that she sent to Lynch, asking for her role to be reprised. Given that Chen’s character ended her “Twin Peaks” run as a drawer knob, it’s obviously written from a unique perspective.

Could There Be a WWE Theme Park on the Way?
When I first watched pro wrestling as a kid it was amazing. Not only is it “real” when you’re a kid, it simply blows you away. Sports and entertainment rolled into one is the ultimate stimulus for a little dude who’s growing up. It’s why to this day I look back fondly on the old WWF and stars like Randy Savage, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, Tito Santana, Hulk Hogan, Junkyard Dog, Jimmy Snuka, and the list goes on. But as a little kid little did I understand the profitability of such an organization. I think at the time most of

‘Archer’ Finale Review: ‘Dreamland’ Ends Season 8 with A Message to Fans and A Bigger Mystery Than Ever
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Archer Dreamland” Season 8, Episode 8, “Auflösung.”]
For those wondering but unwilling to use Google, “auflösung” — the title of the Season 8 finale — is German for “resolution.” But while “Archer” certainly resolved the central mystery of “Dreamland,” Adam Reed’s last episode of 2017 didn’t end it. Or maybe it did. We don’t really know the lasting effects of what we just saw, and while that’s partially enticing — considering how creative the “Archer” team can be — it’s also a little disappointing.
To sum up the plot: Barry, Trexler’s henchman-turned-cyborg, was the one who killed Woodhouse. As Archer reminded us last week, that’s how “Archer Dreamland” began: with Archer out to avenge the death of his partner. In the end, though, it was Krieger, the Frankenstein to Barry’s monster, who killed Woodhouse’s killer by unleashing a pack of robot dogs on the unstoppable assassin. It takes a robot to kill a robot, »

The 100 Season Finale Review: The Race Against “Praimfaya”
Time and time again, The 100 outdoes itself. Rarely have I seen a show get progressively better with age, but The 100 has done exactly that. I was sure that they wouldn’t kill off all their characters, but I was not sure how they would keep the show going once disaster struck. I am happy to report, however, that they have exceeded my expectations in every way. I’m only disappointed in the slightest because I want Season 5 to start tomorrow, and now I have to wait until midseason 2018. This week on the season finale of The 100: Everyone at the bunker quietly falls

‘Fargo’ Review: A Battle Between Ewan McGregors Has Never Felt So Wretched — And Season 3 Never More Exciting
[Editor’s Note: The review below contains spoilers for “Fargo” Season 3, Episode 6, “The Lord of No Mercy.”]
Gloria Burgle to the rescue!
After an episode of incredible tension and unexpected tragedy, we didn’t realize how badly we needed to hear Carrie Coon say, “Screw it,” whip the cruiser around, and high-tail it back to “the P.O.’s domicile.” While the simultaneously ominous and uplifting strings certainly served to get our hearts beating, “Fargo” may as well have played Bonnie Tyler’s famous “Footloose” jam “Holding Out for a Hero” — because one is on the way!
It’s just we had to hold out a little too long. Just enough road blocks were thrown in front of Burgle to keep her from cracking the case earlier, and all that time led to an inevitable tragedy. Ray (Ewan McGregor) is the first major victim of Season 3 (unless you count the annual pilot sacrifice of Scoot McNairy’s Maurice Lafay), in a particularly well-orchestrated offing. First »

Arrow Season 5 Episode 23 Review: “Lian Yu”
Despite the ups and downs that Arrow has had over the years, it has always been and still remains my favorite of The CW’s Dctv shows. Even when the villains have been lackluster or stories have been convoluted, Arrow‘s characters have always kept me watching, always kept me anticipating each and every new episode with great excitement. Oliver, Felicity, Diggle, Thea, and the rest of the show’s mainstays made me want to watch every single week, even as I doubted that the show could ever return to the incredible heights of its universally beloved second season. Thank God for these characters and thank God

The 20 Worst Movie Roles of Otherwise Solid Actors
Sometimes movies are hard to watch simply because their plot lines are horrible, the casting is subpar, or the subject is simply not covered in a way that viewers can relate to. The worst thing that can happen however, to the viewers and the actors involved, is to place the actors in a position that they must essentially put aside their principles and even their passion for acting by accepting the worst movie roles possible. When this happens it’s pretty obvious most times that the actors aren’t having a good time. This can affect a movie in many ways, not

‘Empire’ Showrunner on Finale Cliffhanger, Season 4 ‘Trumpian’ Theme (Spoilers)
Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the “Empire” Season 3 finale, which aired on Wednesday, May 24.
Following the first part of “Empire’s” Season 3 finale last week, which killed off Tariq (Morocco Omari) at the hands of Lucious’ mother (Leslie Uggams), the grand finale nearly saw the death of another main character — none other than Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard).
Through the entire season, Andre (Trai Byers) has been plotting to kill his father. Well, Wednesday’s season finale saw that plan come to fruition, but Andre had a last-minute change of heart and ended up saving Lucious’ life within a second. That being said, Lucious knocked on death’s door.
Andre and Shyne’s (Xzibit) plan was to blow up the car that Lucious would be getting into, and though Andre urged him to stop the explosion, Shyne wanted to go through with the plan. Just as Lucious and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) were »

Empire Finale Recap: Was It an Unforgettable End to Season 3?
Roughly 15 minutes into Empire‘s Season 3 finale on Wednesday it’s revealed that Andre and Shyne are planning to murder Lucious not with a bullet but with a bomb. What’s more, the I.E.D. is slated to be detonated outside of an event space (in this case a casino) following a musical performance. The eerie and, of course, unintended parallel to this week’s horrific terror attack in Manchester was impossible to ignore, and it remained so as the episode built to the inevitable, explosive climax. Should Fox have pulled — or at the very least tweaked — the episode in light of recent events? »
