There’s no denying that Kanye West is one huge drama queen. I didn’t think it was possible, but his Twitter rants have become even more dramatic thanks to several celebrities. They’re almost Shakespearean now 😉

Vanity Fair enlisted YouTube sensation, and current Amazing Race contestant, Tyler Oakley to interview stars as they arrived at the publication’s annual Oscar Party. Whoopi Goldberg, Kate Hudson, Mindy Kaling, Michael Strahan, Martin Short, JJ Abrams and even infamous White House intern Monica Lewisky played along. Some gave West’s Tweets a menacing vibe, while others channeled his anger perfectly. Check out the fun clip below.

Cameron Crowe scored a major hit with Almost Famous, which drew upon his experiences as a teenage writer for Rolling Stone. The 58-year-old director returns to his music roots for his latest venture airing on Showtime.

Roadies puts the spotlight on the unsung heroes who work tirelessly backstage on concert tours to make sure the show goes on without a hitch. With his time touring with The Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Crowe definitely has lots of stories to draw upon.

Roadies Show Description

Roadies gives an insider’s look at the reckless, romantic, funny and often poignant lives of a committed group of “roadies” who live for music and the de facto family they’ve formed along the way. The music-infused ensemble comedy series chronicles the rock world through the eyes of music’s unsung heroes and puts the spotlight on the backstage workers who put the show on the road while touring the United States for a successful arena-level band.

Luke Wilson and Carla Gugino headline the cast. Imogen Poots, Rafe Spall, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Peter Cambor, Colson Baker a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly and Ron White complete the ensemble. J.J. Abrams steps on board to help co-executive produce the show.

Roadies premieres on June 26. Check out the trailer below.

10 Cloverfield Lane Debuts Chilling First Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

Cloverfield frightened moviegoers to a stellar $170 million global take back in 2008. Eight years later, a sequel is finally making its way into theaters. Or as producer JJ Abrams likes to call it instead, “a blood relative of Cloverfield.” Whatever that means.

“The majority of the movie takes place in an underground cellar, and revolves around a young woman who wakes up in the cellar after a severe car accident and fears she has been abducted. Her captor, a doomsday prepper, tells her he saved her life and that there has been a terrible chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable. She does not know what to believe and as tensions rise, she decides she must escape, regardless of the terrors that await outside,” according to Variety

10 Cloverfield Lane, actually had the working title of The Cellar. No one in the industry knew it was a sequel until the trailer dropped. “The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible,” Abrams said in a statement to Collider.

The film stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher, Jr. 10 Cloverfield Lane hits theaters on March 11. Check out the chilling first trailer below.

The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens mainly focused on the new cast. Fans, including myself, were hoping to see the original cast reprise their roles. J.J. Abrams finally delivered today.

There’s still no Luke or Leia in this new footage, but we get to see Harrison Ford as Han Solo, reuniting with Chewbacca. Definitely one of the most beloved pairings of all-time. He says “Chewie … We’re home,” right before showing off his signature crooked smile at the end of the clip.

The more I see, the more I’m stoked to see the seventh installment of the Star Wars franchise. The special effects look sick. Check out the second teaser trailer below. Star Wars: The Force Awakens storms into theaters on December 18.

If spoilers aren’t your thing, definitely do not proceed ahead. This one is a major doozy.

It’s been rumored that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be the darkest film yet seen in the long-running space saga. Based on this new report from MakingStarWars.net, it would appear JJ Abrams delivers on fans speculation. A ‘most trusted’ source in production reveals a major character will die in Episode 7. Find out who below.

MAJOR SPOILER after the jump

Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams has been receiving a bit of flack for his seemingly gratuitous scene of actress Alice Eve in her underwear in the film. The 46-year-old understands the criticism he’s been receiving and takes responsibility saying he “didn’t quite edit the scene in the right way.”

During a stop on Conan, Abrams proves the charges of sexism are unwarranted. He’s an equal opportunity exploiter. J.J. brought along a deleted scene from the film to share. It shows Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch) showering. A “shower of evil” as Abrams jokes. Dayum. It’s short and sweet, but extremely sexy. It’s even hotter when Conan changes the background music.

The full scene better be part of the DVD/Blu-Ray extras. He can’t tease us like that without giving up all the goods. Check out his interview with Conan below. The good parts begin at the 1:30 mark. Enjoy.

This isn’t your daddy’s Star Trek. It’s one from a galaxy far, far away. Oops, wrong sci-fi movie franchise 😉 In all seriousness though, Star Trek Into Darkness looks pretty dang awesome. That’s saying a lot considering I didn’t even go gaga for the first one.

Earlier this week, Paramount released the first official poster for the Star Trek sequel. It featured a metropolis in shambles with a figure who’s back is towards us. Now, we know who the figure is and what happened to destroy the city which looks a lot like a futuristic San Francisco. J.J. Abrams just released the first teaser video for the hotly-anticipated film and it’s FAN-FRIGGIN-TASTIC.

There’s so much action jam-packed in a minute, my heart is still racing from watching it. We see Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and McCoy (Karl Urban) maneuvering themselves through some sort of red cornstalk labyrinth. Uhura (Zoe Saldana) looking hot, while Spock (Zachary Quinto) is armed and dangerous. Not to mention all the screaming and ass-kicking taking place. Check out the trailer below.

Forget the holiday season, this is my favorite time of the year. It’s time for the big networks to unveil their plans for the 2012-13 television season. As Fall arrives, it brings the promise of the next big thing. All the networks hope they have the season’s new “IT” show.

NBC among all of them definitely needs the most help. Based on their presentation, they definitely have a couple of potential hits and surefire bombs. Speaking of which, before we chat about the new shows, let’s quickly officially say good-bye to this season’s canceled shows. Gone are Chuck (final season), Free Agents, The Playboy Club, Prime Suspect, The Firm, Best Friends Forever, Bent, Are You There Chelsea?, Awake and Harry’s Law. Can’t say that I’ll miss any of them. In fact, I probably would’ve axed more shows. Remember when NBC was “must-see television“? Me neither. Seems like a lifetime ago.

For Fall 2012, NBC is hoping laughs will bring in the viewers. Not only did they renew most of their under-performing sitcoms, but the network also ordered seven new comedies. With the genre making a comeback this past season, it’s definitely a sound judgement. On the flip side, I think airing “The Voice” in both the Fall and Spring will hurt the franchise. Fox has always held off from doing that with “American Idol” and it’s worked. Also a horrible decision by the peacock network is waiting til midseason to air the second season of “Smash“. Hopefully, this doesn’t kill the show.

Without further ado, let’s get to the brand new shows. Based on first impression, I’m predicting “The New Normal“, “Revolution“, “Chicago Fire” and “1600 Penn” as NBC’s greatest chances for success. Watch the clips below and see if you agree with my choices.
