Stephen Colbert has ridden anti-Trump sentiment to the top of the late-night ratings. Now he's riding it all the way to premium cable.
On Thursday, Showtime announced it had ordered 10 episodes of an as-yet-untitled animated series featuring cartoon renderings of the president, his family and inner circle.
The satirical half-hour series, executive produced by Colbert and "The Late Show's" show runner Chris Licht, will debut on Showtime this fall. According to the network, turnaround on the series will be quick in order to incorporate current events.
Matt Damon, Oscar Isaac and Julianne Moore star in the trailer for George Clooney's "Suburbicon."
In George Clooney's latest directorial effort, "Suburbicon," the pleasantries of a 1950s town are undone when a home invasion exposes the community's criminal subculture and racial tensions.
And Matt Damon's Gardner Lodge gets stuck in the thick of it -- defending his young son, making death threats, killing mobsters and getting popped square in his bespectacled face at the office -- as seen in the first trailer that Paramount unveiled Thursday.
Did we mention this is a comedy? The dark, screwball kind from the minds of screenwriters Clooney and frequent collaborators Ethan and Joel Coen and Grant Heslov? Well, it is, in case that wasn't clear from the previous description.
Thursday it was announced that Woody Allen’s latest film, “Wonder Wheel,” will have its world premiere as the closing-night film at this year’s New York Film Festival. The film stars Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Juno Temple and James Belushi in a story set around Coney Island in the 1950s.
But that wasn’t the only Allen item of the day. Variety reported that “Wonder Wheel” will also be the first film fully distributed by Amazon when it opens in theaters on Dec. 1. The company has already made fast inroads to the movie business, winning Academy Awards this year for “Manchester by the Sea” and “The Salesman,” but has up to now worked with established distribution partners such as Roadside Attractions or Bleecker Street to help get those movies into theaters.
Amazon released Allen’s 2016 film, “Cafe Society,” starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Steve Carell, in partnership with Lionsgate. The online giant also released Allen’s six-part “Crisis in Six Scenes,” in which he starred alongside Elaine May and Miley Cyrus, late last year via the Amazon Prime Video streaming service.
The MTV Video Music Awards are returning to California and getting a certified "California Gurl" to host.
Katy Perry took to her Twitter feed Thursday to announce her upcoming gig hosting -- and performing -- at the VMAs in August.
"I’ve been training with MTV in zero gravity, eating astronaut ice cream, and I’m on a group text with Buzz Aldrin and Neil deGrasse Tyson,” Perry said in a statement. “Come August 27th, I’ll be ready to be your MOONWOMAN! Brace for impact, kids."
On Thursday, the Rolling Stones frontman released two tracks, "Gotta Get A Grip" and "England Lost," that describe, as he put it in a statement, the "anxiety, unknowability of the changing political situation" in a post-Brexit U.K.
The production is resolutely modern, built on programmed drums and clanging guitar noise. The London grime artist Skepta even joins him for a verse on "England Lost."
Turns out "Saturday Night Live" was on to something when it cast Larry David to play Sen. Bernie Sanders.
During his freewheeling appearance Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills to promote the upcoming ninth season of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm," David revealed that the resemblance is rooted in reality: Sanders is a distant relative.
"He's in the line ... like a third cousin, or something," he said.
If there's one upside to the Trump administration's early-morning Twitter proclamations, it's that it gives late-night shows all day to craft their reactions.
Wednesday began with President Trump announcing a ban on transgender individuals serving in the United States military and ended with late-night hosts uniformly blasting the policy decision in hilarious fashion.
On "The Late Show," Stephen Colbert had plenty to say about Trump's tweets, which ended with an uncharacteristic "thank you."
Any time the surviving Beatles reunite on record is a historic occasion. But a new single from Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr packs in even more classic-rock star power.
Starr's new song "We're on the Road Again" is one of several collaborations with his former bandmate on his new LP, "Give More Love." The song also has guest appearances from Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter and Steve Lukather.
It's a slightly goofy ode to life on the road, as Starr boasts that, "We play really tight; we play really loud" and cheekily references his own song "Photograph."
People also laugh harder when they are interested and concerned and care. When you've got people worried about what's going to happen [to a character], then you can present a laugh to them, and the laugh is far bigger.
Larry David revealed the real reason "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is at last returning after a six-year hiatus: People wouldn't stop bugging him about it.
The "Seinfeld" co-creator took the stage Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills -- joined by his "Curb" cohorts Susie Essman, Jeff Garlin and J.B. Smoove and executive producer Jeff Schaffer -- to discuss the show's coming ninth season. So, why bring back the show now after all these years?
"I'm not a misser," David told reporters. "I don't really miss things, people that much, but I was missing it. I thought, yeah, what the hell. And I got tired of people asking me if the show was coming back. I couldn't get asked that question anymore and I wasn't ready to say, 'No, never.'"
