A movie trailer was one of the star attractions at D23, the Disney fan expo in Anaheim, as attendees got their first look at Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time," the science-fiction tale of a girl's adventures in a parallel universe.
The film's director, Ava DuVernay, presented the nearly two-minute clip at the event. And for the legions of diehard fans of the book on which the film is based — the Newbery Medal-winning novel of the same name by Madeleine L'Engle — it likely will not disappoint.
The trailer shows Storm Reid as the smart and fierce young Meg, the girl who must venture into otherworldly realms to save her father. Oprah Winfrey plays Mrs. Which, her supernatural guide, who tells the young Meg: "Be a warrior." Scenes of fantasy, time travel and unsettling suburban settings were featured.
If we can't have an actual Daft Punk stadium tour yet, the next best place to hear their songs might be a French military marching band's performance of the dance duo's hits. All while under the amused eye of French President Emmanuel Macron, as well as a perplexed glare from President Trump.
On Friday, a French military marching band celebrated Bastille Day with arrangements of the group's hits, including the Grammy-winning 2013 single "Get Lucky."
Macron, who at 39 was surely at least a little familiar with Daft Punk's music, grinned in recognition at the rearranged club hits. To judge from the reactions in the video, it's safe to say that his U.S. counterpart did not quite share in that feeling.
In the latest installment of Melanie "Mel B" Brown and Stephen Belafonte's sordid divorce drama, the "America's Got Talent" judge is now reportedly required to pay her estranged husband $40,000 a month.
Following Belafonte's request for emergency spousal support (to which Brown staunchly replied that he should "get a job"), a judge in Los Angeles recently filed a court-ordered mandate that backs his appeal, TMZ said Friday.
Per the judge's order, Brown must temporarily subsidize a number of Belafonte's living expenses — food, housing, phone, etc. — plus pay him an additional $140,000 to cover his legal fees. She must pay the temporary monthly stipend until the divorce settlement is finalized.
Hip-hop icon DMX's own lyrics may have caught up with him Thursday when he was arrested on suspicion of tax evasion.
The rapper, 46, pleaded not guilty Friday in federal court in New York to 14 charges related to tax fraud. He was to be released after posting $500,000 bond.
"It's allowed me to not be scared of the situation and face it head-on, you know what I'm saying?" the multi-platinum hip-hop artist, whose real name is Earl Simmons, told reporters outside the courthouse. "My life is in God's hands."
Kid Rock dropped two new songs and their corresponding music videos overnight as Thursday turned into Friday — the clincher to a week of bold statements in which the Detroit singer appeared to declare he's running for the Senate.
After teasing an imminent "major announcement" on Wednesday, Rock tweeted a picture of a campaign yard sign reading "Kid Rock for U.S. Senate," accompanied by a link to a campaign-style website offering merchandise for sale and flashing slogans such as "Pimp of the Nation" and "Party to the People." And while there was skepticism, the 46-year-old singer born Robert James Ritchie is insisting he means what he says.
"Having a Moment" is a new weekly feature that spotlights the people and trends we all seem to be talking about.
The year is 1937, and a plane equipped with all of the latest equipment — relying on both radio and celestial navigation and flown by one of the most famous aviators in the world — goes missing in the Pacific Ocean.
This is the story of Amelia Earhart, whose untimely death 80 years ago continues to spawn obsessive theories as to what really happened to her.
The galaxy far, far away got a little bit closer Thursday night in Anaheim when the Walt Disney Co. provided the first-ever look at its upcoming "Star Wars"-themed attraction, or "Star Wars land," as it's being referred to by fans.
The attraction is under construction at Disneyland in Anaheim and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla. Each will have two anchor attractions: one that will allow guests to pilot the Millennium Falcon, and another that puts visitors in the center of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
John Bernecker, a stuntman on AMC's "The Walking Dead," has died from injuries suffered on the show's set in Georgia. He was 33.
After the Wednesday afternoon fall, Bernecker was flown to the Atlanta Medical Center, where he died at 6:30 p.m., Coweta County Coroner Richard Hawk told The Times on Friday.
Variety reported that Bernecker fell more than 20 feet from a balcony onto a concrete floor, suffering a head injury, and immediately was transported by helicopter to the hospital. An assistant director told police the stuntman missed a safety cushion "just by inches" and tried to stop his fall "by grabbing onto the railing with both hands" right after he began falling, TMZ reported Friday.
Will Rubin decided to celebrate his journey into adolescence the way any 13-year-old would: by throwing an elaborate, Jimmy Kimmel-themed bar mitzvah. The party was complete with an ice sculpture of Guillermo's head and a video monologue from Kimmel himself in which the host threatened to sue for damages.
On Thursday, the precocious teenager from Media, Penn., returned the favor by appearing on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" via satellite.
Will explained that Kimmel's show has captivated his interest for the past six months or so. A funny thing for a middle-schooler to be obsessed with, maybe, but it almost certainly made for a better party than his previous interest in cleaning — yes, cleaning — would have.
