Fans counting down to the April 14 premiere of the "Mystery Science Theater 3000" revival are in luck. Netflix has released the first trailer for the upcoming series.
Full of the camp that charmed viewers of the original series, the new trailer for "MST3K" introduces fans to Kinga Forrester, played by Felicia Day, daughter of mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester. Kinga has decided to revive her family's "most legendary experiment": Mystery Science Theater 3000.
The original "MST3K" experiments, of course, were designed to see how much bad movie-watching it takes to drive a person crazy.
Whether you saw "The Gong Show" when it was on the air, through reruns, or simply remember it as a cultural artifact of the 1970s, it was clear that what made the show special was the ringleader of the circus, Chuck Barris.
Barris died Monday at his home in Palisades, N.Y., at the age of 87.
"The Gong Show" was a product of its time, the late '70s, and featured contestants showcasing their talent (or, in some cases, lack of). In front of a panel of judges, they competed to win the grand prize of $516.32 (rumored to be the Screen Actors Guild's minimum daily wage for the time) and to avoid being gonged off the stage.
Fans got their first glimpse of the upcoming "Love Actually" reunion Wednesday morning when NBC released a trailer for "Red Nose Day Actually," which features much of the film's original cast.
Originating in the United Kingdom in 1988, Red Nose Day was created by comedian Lenny Henry and "Love Actually" writer and director Richard Curtis to raise money for children in need and address worldwide poverty.
The celebration migrated to U.S. shores in 2014, and "Red Nose Day Actually" is scheduled to air as part of NBC's "Red Nose Day Special" on May 25.
As Netflix prepared to roll out the first of a series of specials from comedian Dave Chappelle early Tuesday, he was in front of an intimate crowd toasting his return with a mostly private gig at the recently opened Peppermint Club in West Hollywood late Monday.
“It’s like a show, but it’s a celebration — it’s a celebration,” the 43-year-old said at the top of the performance.
“I’ll be honest, I don’t have any new jokes,” he admitted to the packed crowd. “All my new jokes will be streaming on Netflix at midnight.”
Like many great celebrity feuds, the ongoing spat between former host of "The Apprentice" Donald Trump and former host of "The New Celebrity Apprentice" Arnold Schwarzenegger has persisted long after its prescribed expiration date (much like the TV series each man hosted).
The latest wrinkle has Schwarzenegger needling Trump over his lackluster approval ratings after the president lambasted Schwarzenegger for shoddy "Apprentice" ratings.
In a video tweet posted early Tuesday morning, Schwarzenegger mocked Trump's low numbers while taking a shot at his budget blueprint.
After initial controversy, Disney fans in Malaysia will soon be able to experience the magic of the box office behemoth "Beauty and the Beast." Several major Malaysian movie chains announced Tuesday a new March 30 release date for the film.

The film was scheduled to be released in the country on March 16, the global premiere date, before being indefinitely postponed when the Film Censorship Board cut "a gay moment" due to Malaysian laws condemning homosexuality.
Wait, what? Isn't this the guy who was trying to get a medical marijuana dispensary license less than a year ago in Hawaii, the state he calls home?
"I am a party animal," the 55-year-old actor, who's currently promoting his upcoming film "Wilson," told Vulture in an interview published Monday. "But on the other hand, I haven’t … I’m now extremely moderate and … I actually stopped smoking pot almost a year ago."
