Back in 2011, Rocksteady Studios delivered Batman: Arkham City, a game that we liked quite a bit. Then Rocksteady disappeared behind the Veil of Videogame Secrecy, leaving Warner Bros. Montreal to deliver Arkham Origins, a decidedly meh placeholder prequel. But there were tantalizing rumors that Rocksteady was working on a next-generation Arkham game. And now, Game Informer has confirmed it. Arkham Knight will hit sometime in 2014 — probably October, since that’s when the last couple games arrived. READ FULL STORY

No matter where Michael Keaton goes, he’s constantly asked about Beetlejuice and Batman. So it must have been refreshing to appear on this morning’s Today show to promote Need for Speed, his new action movie based on the popular video game. And then Savannah Guthrie asked him about Beetlejuice and Batman, God bless her.
Tim Burton, who directed both 1980s movies, has never hid his enthusiasm for another Beetlejuice, and last fall, he seemed ready to produce or direct a sequel based on a script from screenwriters Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows) and David Katzenberg. It’s sad to contemplate a sequel without Keaton as the gonzo poltergeist, but 24 years later, who knew if Keaton was truly game?
Well, turns out he’s game. “I’ve been talking about it for years and saying it’s the one thing — if I ever did anything again, it would be that, or I’d want to do that,” Keaton told Guthrie. “The rumors would — they’ve risen before and fallen away — and now if Tim [Burton] is involved, and I think he might be involved, if Tim would be involved, I would be more than interested.”

Despite what her Oscar tweets may have indicated, Chelsea Handler is emphatically not a racist — at least, according to Chelsea Handler.
“People are mad at me all the time. If I was worried about that, then I would be spending a lot of time online. I’d rather be a little bit more productive,” she explained to George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Tuesday, after he brought up her controversial Academy Award-night comments — including this message about Sunday’s Best Supporting Actress winner: “#AngelinaJolie just filed adoption papers #lupitanyongo #Oscars -@chelseahandler.”
Okay, cool! Thanks for clearing that up, Chelsea. This would be the perfect time to change the subject. Right? Right?
Yeah, no. “I’m not racist,” the comedian continued, laughing as though the very idea were utterly ludicrous. “I date a lot of black people, so that would be a difficult thing to explain to them.” Palm, meet face.
On Monday’s Tonight Show, Menzel stopped by to debut the latest holdover sketch from Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night days: “[Song] with Classroom Instruments.” Accompanied, as always, by Fallon and The Roots, Menzel sang the catchy tune and looked like she was having a total blast. (This is what happens when John Travolta butchers your name, and now everyone knows who you are.)
Watch the fun below. Come for the tune, stay for the thrilled audience cheers throughout. And don’t worry: Idina totally crushes that glory note this time around. READ FULL STORY
Now that it’s crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide, it would be safe to say the Oscar-winning film Frozen has become a global phenomenon, partly thanks to the song “Let It Go” and the countless covers posted online. Now YouTube has compiled a list of the top 10 covers of the song posted on its site. The popular Africanized Tribal Cover of the song by Alex Boye takes the No. 1 spot with over 21 million views.

Pizza delivery guy Edgar had a good Sunday night. He got to deliver pizza to the Oscars and received a $1,000 tip. Sorry, Lupita, but it looks like Edgar was the real winner last night.
Edgar, co-owner of pizzeria Big Mama’s & Papa’s, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday to talk about his surprise visit to the Oscars. Apparently, he was told he was going to deliver pizza to some writers and was shocked when DeGeneres led him to the stage, where he looked out at the huge audience and offered an adorable “hello!”
As if going on an unexpected trip to the Oscars and getting a huge tip wasn’t enough, Edgar also got to meet his dream lady: Julia Roberts, who he served a slice of pizza to. See, kids, dreams do come true!
DeGeneres ended the interview by pulling out Pharrell’s hat filled with money and telling Edgar she ended up collecting around $600 from the audience for his tip. Then she pulled out $400 from her pocket and handed the wad of cash to a laughing Edgar. So, how do we break into the pizza delivery business?

Now that the 86th Annual Academy Awards have sailed off into the pizza-covered sunset, awards season is officially dunzo. But in honor of the final red carpet of the season, EW took to the Oscars with an incredibly important question — if you were stranded on a desert island, which Oscar-winning movie would you take with you?

It’s been four years since the film version of Watchmen disappointed everyone, but the past week has seen a sudden and rather unexpected burst of Hollywood infighting among various parties attached to the movie. Last week, Hollywood uber-producer Joel Silver revealed to ComingSoon the crazypants ending that Terry Gilliam was planning when he was attached to the movie, and also accused director Zack Snyder of being “too much of a slave to the material.”
In a new interview with the Huffington Post, Snyder hits back, accurately describing Gilliam’s ending as “completely insane” and explaining that his whole purpose in making Watchmen was to maintain the purity of Watchmen‘s creative essence. “I made it because I knew that the studio would have made the movie anyway and they would have made it crazy,” says Snyder. “I finally made it to save it from the Terry Gilliams of this world.” READ FULL STORY
The Oscars ceremony has been over for, um, approximately 12 hours — so of course it’s time to discuss whom you’d like to see host the annual event next year.
Will Ellen return for a third stint? Will Neil Patrick Harris finally take on the biggest awards show of them all? Below, see some of our potential picks — both fantasy and more realistic — and then vote for whom you’d like to see joking around with Meryl Streep at the 2015 ceremony. READ FULL STORY
Sure, the 86th Academy Awards featured some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were there. Meryl Streep was there. Leonardo DiCaprio was there. But if I’m being honest, part of me saw this “get together” as less of a show and more of a reunion. More specifically, A Time to Kill reunion.
In the crowd sat several cast members of the 1996 film, which included Sandra Bullock, Kevin Spacey, Samuel L. Jackson, and of course, first-time Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey. And the second I saw this photo of Jackson and McConaughey, I couldn’t help but think back to the film that, for me at least, first indicated that this McConaughey guy was something special.
In the film, Jackson played Carl Lee, whose daughter had been raped by two white men. When it appeared the men were going to get away with their crime, Carl Lee killed them. It was then Jake’s (McConaughey) job, as Carl Lee’s lawyer, to convince a jury in the South that his black client shouldn’t go to jail. And he did it with an unforgettable closing argument. In that one speech, McConaughey’s performance pulled me in and made me realize the power with which he could command a scene.
Watch McConaughey light the match that started his (long) road to the Oscars below:
