A post shared by Kel Mitchell 💯 (@iamkelmitchell) on Jun 25, 2018 at 3:12pm PDT Uh oh! Mitchell shared a sneak peek of their episode on Instagram, in which both he and Thompson (who went on to “Saturday Night Live” stardom) can be seen sporting the trademark goggles. “It’s going down!” Mitchell says. The new version of “Double Dare” premiered this week and will run throughout the summer. Not only is the network reviving the classic game show “Double Dare,” former Nick stars Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell are set to appear in an episode. Fun time shooting Double Dare today with the bro! make sure you watch the premiere tonight on Nickelodeon and check out the hour special with me and Kenan later this summer! Nickelodeon nostalgia is at its peak. The two actors starred on the teen sitcom “Kenan and Kel” from 1996 to 2000 and also in the 1997 movie “Good Burger.” Prior to their own show, they were cast members in the Nick sketch series “All That.” Their castmate, Lori Beth Denberg, will also appear on their “Double Dare” episode. The boys are in the building!
Don’t ask Gus, he’s busy. “Better Call Saul” will be breaking bad in a more significant way in Season 4 of the AMC drama, as hinted at in this teaser full of ominous imagery. “Better Call Saul” Season 4 premieres August 6 on AMC. #BetterCallSaul returns August 6th on @AMC_TV 🍗💀 pic.twitter.com/stu7JrkLh0

Gilligan added, “There is a very important character — I’m not promising you ever saw this character, but there was a very important character nonetheless from the ‘Breaking Bad’ era who we’re going to meet this year.”
That character is Lalo, who was mentioned in the very first scene that involved Saul (Bob Odenkirk) on “Breaking Bad.” And judging by the boots seen in the teaser, we’ll also get the Cousins. It’s still got funny in it, but on the Venn diagram of ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul,’ the overlap in the center is getting bigger and bigger,” he said. “It gets darker, it gets richer. Who else will show up in Season 4? The teaser doesn’t show much, of course, but things seem to take a darker turn, with glimpses of gunshots, a car on fire, and Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) calmly saying, “Now is not a good time.”
“Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter recently that the world of “Better Call Saul” will start merging more with the flagship series. But might we see someone else too?
The future is female for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “It’s just the Marvel heroes, more than half of which will be women.”
Of course, right now, Marvel heroes are primarily male. The upcoming “Ant-Man and the Wasp” features a female superhero as the co-lead for the first time and next year’s “Captain Marvel” will be the first MCU movie with a woman solely as the star. And maybe the Wasp can get her own movie (sans Ant-Man) as well. Bring it on. Up until now, the MCU has been dominated by male superheroes — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor. But it seems the company has listened to all the clamoring for movies featuring Black Widow and the badass women of “Black Panther,” Okoye, Nakia, and Shuri. “I think we’re getting to the point soon where we have so many great female characters that those are just our heroes as opposed to when are they all female, all male,” he said. Marvel boss Kevin Feige told Screenrant that he envisions the gender split trending toward female superheroes. But in the coming years, the MCU may look very different.

We’ll be curious to see if Kaling’s #SequelMuch hashtag prediction comes true. The fabulous females of “Ocean’s 8″ have pulled off yet another impressive heist: Scoring $100 million at the box office. #SequelMuch.”
Kaling’s costar, Anne Hathaway, also toasted the milestone, sharing a celebratory throwback Instagram snap featuring two more fellow stars, Rihanna and Sarah Paulson. Oh hey $100,000,000… Keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned. While “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” was busy roaring to the top of the charts this past weekend, “Ocean’s” pulled in an additional $11.6 million, bringing its total domestic gross to just over $100 million (plus an additional $70 million-plus overseas) since its release earlier this month. $100 million!?! Congrats @oceans8movie!” the actress wrote on Twitter. And in honor of that milestone, one of the film’s stars is calling for a sequel. Factoring in its strong performance out of the gate — especially in comparison to the previous “Ocean’s” flicks — and its ridiculously starry cast, it certainly seems like the series is due for another entry, right? That’s what star (and new Academy member) Mindy Kaling thinks, and she wasn’t shy about saying so on social media. 💵 #SequelMuch https://t.co/xCPVhXETRK

“Whoa!!! Congrats @oceans8movie! “$100 million!?! After the news broke about the film’s new total, Kaling tweeted that she was ready for more “Ocean’s.”

“Ever since we were children, our nightmares have been fueled by the “King” of Horror… “The Boogeyman” follows a man who recently lost all his children to a creature lurking in the closet. Deadline reports that screenwriting duo Scott Beck and Bryan Woods — who came up with the original story for “Quiet,” and co-wrote the film’s script with director John Krasinski — have been tapped to adapt legendary author Stephen King’s short story “The Boogeyman.” According to the trade, “Boogeyman” has previously been adapted seven times as a short, but this new flick will mark its first time receiving the feature-length treatment. If we were living in the world of @quietplacemovie, we would be dead right now from loudly reacting to your gracious praise. — Stephen King (@StephenKing) April 6, 2018
Wow, @StephenKing. THANK YOU. King and Beck and Woods previously exchanged pleasantries on Twitter around the time of the release of “A Quiet Place” back in April. No word yet on when production on “The Boogeyman” is expected to begin. The writers of recent horror hit “A Quiet Place” are taking on a titan of the genre for their next project. It’s in post-production now. https://t.co/dppPFsplUS
— Beck/Woods (@beckandwoods) April 6, 2018
Ever since we were children, our nightmares have been fueled by the “King” of Horror… so we are absolutely thrilled and honored to be adapting @StephenKing’s THE BOOGEYMAN for @20thcenturyfox and 21 Laps!” the scribes tweeted. Now, the duo is working with one of its heroes, and couldn’t be more excited. Here’s some background on the source material, per Deadline:
King’s short story was first published in 1973 and later released as part of his 1978 “Night Shift” collection. Terrific acting, but the main thing is the SILENCE, and how it makes the camera’s eye open wide in a way few movies manage. so we are absolutely thrilled and honored to be adapting @StephenKing’s THE BOOGEYMAN for @20thcenturyfox and 21 Laps! As writers, you were a massive inspiration for this film. A QUIET PLACE is an extraordinary piece of work. Next up for Beck and Woods is the new flick “Haunt,” which they both wrote and directed.
They were at it again on this year’s 21st anniversary, leading one fan to quip that it made him “feel super old.”
Like many of us who grew up with the books, that’s a sentiment with which Rowling agrees. Rowling’s debut novel, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone,” which celebrated the 20th anniversary of its original UK publication on June 26 of last year. Next up is the book’s 20th anniversary of stateside release: It first crossed the pond as the rebranded “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” on September 1, 1998. It’s been just over two decades since readers first entered the wizarding world in J.K. Twenty years is a significant chunk of time, and that achievement hasn’t gone unnoticed by “Potter” fans, who tweeted up a storm during last year’s milestone celebration. Rowling (@jk_rowling) June 26, 2018
The outspoken author (and newly-minted Academy member) frequently reflects on her landmark series on Twitter, and did so during last year’s publication anniversary, too, saying in a tweet that the decades that have unfolded since the book first hit shelves have “been wonderful.” We couldn’t agree more. Rowling may feel old, but as one fan put it on Twitter, she should feel mighty proud, too. https://t.co/SGAeEwWkcX
— J.K. Yes.
This “Watchmen” series comes from “Lost” mastermind Damon Lindelof, who previously explained that it would be a “remixed” version inspired by the graphic novels, not a direct adaptation (and definitely nothing like Zack Snyder’s 2009 movie). Irons joins the previously announced cast of Regina King (“The Leftovers”), Don Johnson (“Miami Vice”), Louis Gossett Jr. (“An Officer and a Gentleman”), Tim Blake Nelson (“O Brother, Where Art Thou?”), Adelaide Clemens (“Rectify”), and Andrew Howard (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”). [via: Deadline] Deadline was first to report the news, though details about Irons’s role — and the plot of the series as a whole — are scant right now. No word yet on how many episodes are expected to be produced, though HBO has ordered a pilot and additional scripts. So far, all that the trade knows about the Oscar winner’s involvement is that he will be playing “an aging and imperious lord of a British Manor,” and it’s a leading part. While the original “Watchmen” comics, created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, will be considered canon, this version of events will feature new characters and a contemporary setting — and will definitely not be a sequel, according to Lindelof. The already star-studded cast of HBO’s upcoming “Watchmen” series just added another big name to the ensemble: Jeremy Irons has joined the show. Stay tuned for more information about the mysterious project as it becomes available.
Here’s the show’s official synopsis, per THR:
L.A.’s Finest follows Syd Burnett (Union), last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, who has left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective. The plan is for “L.A.’s Finest” to debut on Spectrum before eventually airing on other networks, though no future home for the series was announced. As THR notes, this deal is similar to what happened with the final two seasons of “Friday Night Lights,” which were picked up by DirecTV and eventually aired on NBC. The series, titled “L.A.’s Finest,” stars Union and Jessica Alba (who Union personally recruited for the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter), and was initially in development at NBC, but is now set to debut on Charter Communications’ Spectrum cable platform instead. Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom with an equally complex past, Syd is pushed to examine whether her unapologetic lifestyle might be masking a greater personal secret. The show has been picked up for 13 episodes, and will debut sometime in 2019. [via: The Hollywood Reporter] This will be Charter’s first original scripted series. These two women don’t agree on much, but they find common ground when it comes to taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles in this character-driven drama. After some behind the scenes shuffling, that rumored “Bad Boys” TV spinoff centered around Gabrielle Union’s “Bad Boys II” character is officially a go.
“Wonderland” follows “a man fresh out of prison who is sucked back into Boston’s underbelly while he uncovers the truth about a sensational murder.”
Wahlberg can next be seen in Berg’s “Mile 22,” costarring Lauren Cohan, which hits theaters August 17. Want more stuff like this? Parker’s best-selling Spenser detective novel series. Relationships come and go in Hollywood, but Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg are the real deal. Like us on Facebook. Spenser is also the character played by Robert Urich in the ’80s TV series “Spenser: For Hire.”
According to Deadline, “Wonderland” is the first film in what is hoped to be a series of feature films for Netflix, adapting various Spenser novels. The director and his muse have collaborated in “Lone Survivor,” “Deepwater Horizon,” “Patriots Day,” and the upcoming summer film “Mile 22.”
Now they are heading to Netflix with the film “Wonderland,” adapting author Robert B. Boxer turned Boston-based private eye Spenser is featured in more than 40 novels by Parker and — after Parker’s death — Ace Atkins.
But after a while I was like, ‘Well, this is actually not that bad. I was really surprised — I think, with everyone else, it was very surprising. I haven’t talked to him in months.”
That’s kind of sad, that they haven’t spoken in a while, but Lincoln is currently busy filming his final season, and Chandler is now living in Los Angeles. Like us on Facebook. Andrew Lincoln leaving “The Walking Dead” will be rough for fans, but Chandler Riggs thinks it will be good for the actor as a husband and father. Yeah. The reporter asked Chandler if he had talked to Lincoln about his upcoming exit. Want more stuff like this? ‘Cause I can move out to Los Angeles and do more acting, and do more of what I love to do. “Andy” became a second father to Chandler. I mean, Andy has been on the show for so long, and he’s had to leave his family every single year. But at the same time, it’s gonna be good for him to get back to his family and raise his kids. Chandler Riggs played Lincoln’s on-screen son, Carl Grimes, for about eight years — from age 10 to 18. Chandler: “I haven’t actually. Check out his interview:”The Walking Dead” Season 9 premieres this October on AMC. So I was surprised. Other roles, do music more.'”
Plus he got to cut his hair, as you can see below. Chandler was asked again for his reaction when told Carl Grimes would be killed off last season:
Chandler: “At the time I had just bought a house near where we film. and U.K. TWD Season 9 is now filming, and the news has already spread that Lincoln will be leaving the show as Rick Grimes. it’s gonna be good.”
“The Walking Dead” tapes in Georgia, but Andrew Lincoln is British, and he and his wife and two kids balance their two worlds in the U.S. I invested a lot, then I found out. Carl Grimes was written off the show last year, in a surprise move, so Chandler is in a good position to judge this new surprise departure. Good Day Sacramento was at Fandemic Comic Con and asked Chandler Riggs if he was shocked by the news that Andy Lincoln is leaving “The Walking Dead.”
Chandler Riggs: “Of course, yeah.
He’s complained about doing the part because he’s put himself through a lot physically, but he will do the next movie, and then I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond. What do you think of him as the next 007? I’d be happy to see him do it. Tom Hardy has had a very eclectic career thus far, but he’s shown that he’s not averse to major franchises — from Bane in “Batman: The Dark Knight Rises” to his upcoming turn in the Spider-Man spinoff “Venom.”
This isn’t the first time Hardy’s name has come up for 007. He’s very physical, he looks lethal. I think a woman could play Bond but it wouldn’t be James Bond. Want more stuff like this? Tom Hardy’s “Venom” opens October 5th. You need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it – that’s what makes Bond.”
By “wiggle” he probably meant a twist, or Hardy’s own unique unpredictable take. Like us on Facebook. But he is over it. Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond. Tom Hardy. Pierce Brosnan told The Daily Mail’s Event Magazine that he himself was “never good enough” as James Bond, with the exception of “GoldenEye.” He talked about the tearful call he got from Barbara Broccoli after doing “Die Another Day,” when she told him he was done. Pierce Brosnan’s “Mamma Mia! But we’re choosing to believe he literally meant Tom Hardy’s wiggle because that mental image is delightful. Hardy. He said it took him years to get over it. Now he’s talking about his role in the upcoming “Mamma Mia!” sequel, and the future of James Bond. Daniel Craig’s “Bond 25” opens November 8, 2019. In 2015, he was asked if he’d consider the role; here’s what he told Sky News:
“I think anybody would consider doing Bond, wouldn’t they?”
Daniel Craig still has the job for “Bond 25,” but Pierce Brosnan’s endorsement certainly can’t hurt Tom Hardy when it comes to Bond 26. Here We Go Again” opens in theaters July 20th. The Daily Mail asked Brosnan whom he believes will inherit the role after Daniel Craig, and — in their words — “even whether such a misogynistic hero can exist in post-#MeToo Hollywood.”
Here’s Brosnan’s answer:
“Bond is Bond and you can’t change that. You genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man.
Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook. For the past few years, Vin Diesel has been alternating between Groot and Dominic Toretto in back-to-back blockbuster franchises. “Bloodshot” follows a mortally wounded soldier who is resurrected with cutting-edge nanotechnology, then tasked with rounding up superpowered outcasts called “harbingers.”
Back in January, TheWrap reported that this project will be part of a five-film shared universe plan based on the Valiant comic books “Harbinger” and “Bloodshot.” TheWrap also said the plan is to follow “Deadpool” and “Logan” with an R-rated take on “Bloodshot” that “will be tonally and aesthetically influenced by high-concept, sci-fi blockbusters of the late ’80s including ‘Robocop,’ ‘Terminator,’ and ‘Total Recall.'”
There’s no word yet on the release date for “Bloodshot,” but with filming starting in July, photos and other intel should be coming relatively soon. But he’ll soon play a live-action superhero in his own comic book film, “Bloodshot,” which starts filming in July, aka in the next few weeks. According to TheWrap, the film just cast Toby Kebbell in the villain role of “Axe.” In Valiant comics, there is a power-hungry computer wizard named Ax, so this could be the guy. British actor Toby Kebbell is known from his roles in “War Horse,” “Fantastic Four,” “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “Warcraft,” “A Monster Calls,” and the fantastic “Black Mirror” episode “The Entire History of You.”
The rest of the “Bloodshot” cast so far includes Michael Sheen, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Talulah Riley, and Alex Hernandez.
’cause apparently no one told her? UPDATES: Despite cancellation reports from The Hollywood Reporter and SpoilerTV, a Freeform rep told Entertainment Weekly the show is not officially dead yet. — I. “No decision has been made at this time.”
I. Very hurtful freeform. Meanwhile, many Freeform fans are still busy trying to get someone to save “Shadowhunters,” which was canceled a few weeks ago. THR’s sources said Thorne “actively wanted off of ‘Famous in Love,’ with the actress and social media star having refused to participate in Freeform-organized live-tweets during its second season.”
But Thorne sounded upset to hear of the show’s cancellation via a SpoilerTV tweet posted Tuesday afternoon:
If this is how I find out our show is canceled..I’m going to be so upset. In a twist on the usual cancellation reception, THR’s sources said the show being axed was actually a “relief” for many members of production, due to the star’s alleged behavior and her clashes with the former “Pretty Little Liars” showrunner. We have, and have always had, a friendly and professional relationship. Bella Thorne just found out from social media … Whatever happened behind the scenes, it’s always better to contact the star first before the media. ❤️
— I. Marlene King also disputed THR’s report that she and Bella Thorne didn’t get along, and also seemed to deny that the cast was relieved for the show to be canceled:
Despite what may be out there I am not in a feud w @bellathorne. I woulda liked a phone call maybe. Marlene King (@imarleneking) June 27, 2018

Whoops. “Famous in Love” aired 20 episodes across two seasons, with the May 30 Season 2 finale now serving as the series finale. According to THR, Freeform initially wanted to do a third season of the show, which was said to be expensive, but wanted streaming partner Hulu to give a larger contribution. Like us on Facebook. #Raige On! Hulu passed, since Season 2 only averaged 254,000 total viewers which was down from Season 1. Marlene King (@imarleneking) June 27, 2018
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Famous in Love” was canceled after two seasons on Freeform. Want more stuff like this? Marlene King clashed multiple times. Maybe it’s because her name and alleged “diva-like behavior” are tied to the show ending — with THR claiming she and showrunner I.
As briefly mentioned in “Infinity War,” Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) took a plea deal for his participation in the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” and is serving out his sentence on house arrest in San Francisco. Ultimately, whether it means Lang’s foray into his daughter’s school for a family heirloom, the collapsing secrets of Hank Pym’s portable lab, or just the comparable scale of this story to the rest told in the MCU, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” works best when it’s at a little bit smaller than life size — consistently buoyant and thrilling, but also surprisingly intimate, which makes it just as important as any of its predecessors. Lilly, a commanding actor since her debut on the TV series “Lost,” finally gets the chance to be as tough and in charge as she’s always deserved, and effectively sidelines the guy audiences came to see the first time. Although he likes bragging about his escapades with the Avengers in Germany, his central concern is not screwing up his relationship with Cassie, and helping launch a security company with Luis (Michael Pena) and the rest of his crew of ex-convicts. That said, a preponderance of exposition greets viewers at the beginning of the movie to make sure that you know exactly who Janet Van Dyne was, what happened to her, why and how Hank and Hope are trying to find her, and who plans to stop them from accomplishing that goal and for what reason. Conversely, Hannah John-Kamen oozes wounded anger as Ghost, but a surplus of backstory does as much as the actress’ own talents to keep her from simply being the film’s erstwhile villain. Instead, we get to simply revel in watching them face an escalating series of obstacles in their path. The result is a decidedly underwhelming first few scenes, but what quickly emerges is the delightful discovery that the movie doesn’t need “more” happening for it to entertain audiences; with the stakes clearly defined and the characters established, we never have to worry about what it all means for the future of a larger film series, or really even just this franchise. But when a mysterious figure called Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) shows up to steal a much-needed part, disrupting Hank and Hope’s work, Scott agrees to help track her down, locate the materials needed to complete their device, and hopefully bring together not one but two families — all before S.H.I.E.L.D. “Ant-Man and the Wasp” leans refreshingly heavily on his “regular” life — or at least a reasonable facsimile of the life this guy might lead — if he actually faced some of the consequences of his actions, including the ones he was paying for at the beginning of the first film. Although his abs are as capable of scrubbing out tough stains as the next hero’s, Scott Lang is the outlier of the MCU — in virtually all other respects, an ordinary guy whose costumed exploits are secondary to his priorities as a father and aspiring business owner. Desperate to complete his sentence and re-establish a presence in his daughter Cassie’s life, Scott is reluctant to help them further, especially since they’re still on the run from the authorities. Director Peyton Reed, granted seeming free reign after inheriting the first “Ant-Man,” makes the most of his two heroes’ superpowers with visuals that utilize their rapid shifts in size and play well into the franchise’s self-aware sense of humor. Meanwhile, Pena’s improvisational excesses once again give the movie some of its funniest moments; among Lang’s crew, he comes away with the most to do in the film. Scruffy, understated and fun, the sequel sidesteps just about all of the gravitas left hanging after the events of April’s highly-anticipated superhero crossover, instead focusing on few more than the characters from the first film, some remarkably inventive action, and a story aimed, directly and satisfyingly, at resolving emotional baggage rather than driving forward the machinery of a cinematic universe. It’s a much more interesting, identifiable foundation than the calling that some have, or the inescapability that many others do, and Rudd maximizes his natural “better to be clever than smart” charm in the role. If “Infinity War” felt like too much, “Ant-Man and the Wasp” feels like the right amount of “too little,” content to explore its tiny corner of this larger universe in suitably meticulous detail. But a strange vision of Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) prompts him to contact Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), who coincidentally are working on a device to try and locate her in the Quantum Realm, where she got lost decades ago. Agent Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) discovers what they’re up to. Some viewers may find themselves disappointed by the lack of showstopping moments that they haven’t already seen in trailers and promotional materials, but in terms of sheer character-oriented action, the film delivers some of the best that the MCU has seen. Additionally, her character’s relationship with her father, Hank, gets sketched in with more nuance this time, enabling both her and Douglas to provide some real pathos, and at the same time be more playful. It’s not meant to be a pun to call “Ant-Man and the Wasp” the smallest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to date, but especially after the smorgasbord of brutality that unfolded in “Avengers: Infinity War,” Peyton Reed’s follow-up to “Ant-Man” feels like sorely-needed counterprogramming.
Because crossovers aren’t just for superheroes anymore! The sketch ended with Colbert and Fallon deciding to go out to eat at Red Hen, a reference to the Virginia restaurant that recently asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave. O’Brien: “If we’re not careful, this thing could start to get ugly.”
Heh. Want more stuff like this? Of course, the topic was President Donald Trump and the recent insults he’s given both Fallon and Colbert. “The real estate guy who sells steaks?!” He suggested they give Trump time and be civil. Three late-night hosts — Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O’Brien — put aside ratings rivalries for a joint sketch that broadcast on both “The Late Show” and “The Tonight Show.” (Conan’s show is on hiatus this week; no idea where Jimmy Kimmel was in all of this.)
It appears to have been the first time one sketch served as the cold open to two late night shows. Fallon: “I heard he said we’re all no-talent, lowlife lost souls.”
Colbert: “Well that doesn’t sound right. That’s Conan…”
So they called up Conan, who was busy shaving — and had no idea Trump was president. Like us on Facebook. Look, Conan O’Brien is back on “The Tonight Show”! After this, the hosts should team up more often — maybe they can even become the new Avengers in Phase 4. Jimmy Kimmel has definitely taken his fair share of shots to and from POTUS, so he should explain why he didn’t join in for this bit. The sketch had the hosts video conference each other.
