PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones,' 'Louie,' finales, 'Jersey Boys' premiere, and more

For Game of Thrones fans, today is arguably the most important day of 2014, because it marks yet another season finale, and furthermore, it will probably determine Tyrion’s fate. So to those of you who are obsessed with the show, I wish you good luck. But for the rest of you who are looking past tonight’s finale, there’s an entire week’s worth of possibilities that await you.

Here’s what your pop culture calendar looks like this week: READ FULL STORY

Tom Hiddleston's best musical moments -- VIDEOS

It’s official: Tom Hiddleston’s musical talent will no longer be confined to soundstages or the passenger seat of a car. His voice is going to be heard by all when he takes on the role of country star Hank Williams in Marc Abraham’s I Saw The Light.

In honor of his new venture and also because it’s Friday, we’ve rounded up some of Hiddleston’s best musical moments (with a little dancing bonus —  because if this movie doesn’t take advantage of his rhythm, it might as well be a crime): READ FULL STORY

'Mighty Ducks' oral history: What we learned

Believe it or not, it has been 20 years since The Mighty Ducks graced your movie screens (for the second time). And in honor of the movie that inspired us all to attempt ice skating and say “Quack” repeatedly, Time caught up with those involved for a full oral history of the franchise.

Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: '22 Jump Street' in theaters, 'Veep' finale, Jack White's new album, and more

If you thought June would be your time to take a little pop culture break and maybe binge a few shows you’d never gotten to start, we’ve got some bad news: There’s no time for that. Between finales of some of HBO’s strongest shows — Veep and Game of Thrones — award shows, new books, albums, and movies, there’s very little time for you to play catch-up. So maybe save that for next week? Although, we make no promises that you’ll have time.

For all of the Marvel fans who have been wondering whether Clark Gregg kept any of Agent Coulson’s vintage Captain America cards, we finally have your answer: Yes, he did. And yes, they’re also covered in (fake?) blood.

When Gregg stopped by our New York City office to promote his new film, Trust Me – in which he plays a struggling talent agent for child stars — we put him in the hot seat. Gregg discussed the movie (and beach memory) that he’ll never forget, his crush on Game of Thrones‘s Khaleesi, and more. Bonus scoop: His first celebrity crush was Kathy Garver, who played Cissy on Family Affair.

Watch Gregg’s Pop Culture Personality Test below:

RoboCop throws first pitch at Detroit Tigers game -- VIDEO

RoboCop is programmed to follow certain Prime Directives, including “serve the public trust.” Is that where throwing the first pitch at an MLB game comes in?

The cyborg cop took time off from keeping the mean streets of Detroit safe Tuesday night, when he stopped by Comerica Park as the Tigers hosted the Toronto Blue Jays. The visit was part of a promotion in honor of the DVD release of this year’s RoboCop remake, aka #ROBOCOPDay.

It should come as no surprise that RoboCop threw a pretty decent pitch — one much better than 50 Cent tossed. After all, the new-generation officer has internal robotic zoom capabilities for better aim and tracking. Take a look at his arm in the clip below: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: 'The Fault in Our Stars' in theaters, 'Enlisted' returns, 'Tony Awards,' and more

The first full week of June has everything you could ask for from summer entertainment: Comedy, action, love, sex, awards, “reality” television, and Tom Cruise. From The Fault in Our Stars finally hitting theaters to the return of fan-favorite comedy Enlisted, here’s what your pop culture calendar looks like this week: READ FULL STORY

Marvel's 'Avengers' S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibit: We took the tour (and chatted with Stan Lee)

Maybe you can’t visit Tony’s mansion, or the Avengers Tower, or the Triskelion (R.I.P.). But Marvel’s The Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (that’s Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network to you) exhibit, which opens today in New York, might be the next best thing. Actually, scratch that: It’s definitely the next best thing.

Conceived in conjunction with NASA, Discovery Times Square and Victory Hill Exhibitions, the interactive deep-dive into the Marvel Cinematic Universe — and the science behind all your favorite characters — is an exhibit more than worthy of its $27.00 admission price (or $19.50, if you’re a child age 3-11). Rich with real costumes and props, artifacts, and up-to-date technological, hands-on, interactive science, the entire walk-through is a delight. But don’t take my word for it: “It’s absolutely unbelievable,” comic legend Stan Lee told EW exclusively after seeing the exhibit for the first time. “I thought of them as simple fictional characters that could have great adventures, and people could enjoy reading them — but now I realize, unintentionally, I was one of the world’s scientists. [laughs] And what they have done with these characters, this building, and this display is indescribably wonderful and creative. I think that it’ll make any young people that walk through it leave saying, ‘I’ve gotta be a scientist. It’s the most exciting thing in the world!'” READ FULL STORY

New 'Big Trouble in Little China' comic book: Read the first six pages -- EXCLUSIVE

Big-Trouble-In-Little-China-02

John Carpenter’s 1986 kung fu fantasy masterpiece Big Trouble in Little China was a flop when it was first released, but a long life on home video helped foster a retroactive appreciation for star Kurt Russell’s fast-talking Jack Burton and the style with which Carpenter delivers his crazy tale. It is now a bona fide cult classic, and it is getting resurrected in comic book form. READ FULL STORY
