Moviegoer etiquette: What food is acceptable to smuggle into a theater?

I came out of my TV cave yesterday and decided that three months was far too long to have gone without seeing a new movie. If you were on Twitter around 5 p.m., you might have even been one of the kind people who helped me pick which movie to go see. (Spoiler: Most people said Bridesmaids, so that won.) Only, my rare moviegoing experience took a turn for the unpleasant shortly after the flick began, when the person next to me decided it was a great opportunity to eat his cheeseburgerREAD FULL STORY

'Bachelorette': Should producers tell Ashley the truth about Bentley? Poll!

about her.” It’s tough to watch Ashley fall for the guy knowing from the “this season on The Bachelorette” promo embedded below that she’ll end up in the fetal position sobbing over him (or at least that’s what we’re led to believe). But then again, Ashley did get a warning from a franchise alum who’s friends with Bentley’s ex-wife claiming that he’s not on the show “for the right reasons” — and she chose not to ask him point blank about it because he’s hot. (Instead, she just asked him to always be honest with her and gave him a rose last, which, I’m guessing, hurt his pride enough to make him want to play her ever harder.) So, what’s your verdict? Vote in the poll below. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette' starts tonight: Let the ab parade and heartbreak begin!

The seventh edition of The Bachelorette premieres tonight (ABC, 9 p.m. ET), and we’ll find out if aspiring dentist Ashley Hebert, who let her mind get in the way of her heart when vying for Brad Womack, can find a husband among the 25 men producers have selected for herEntertainment Weekly executive editor Kristen Baldwin will return with her weekly recap, while host Chris Harrison is back with his weekly blog. While we await their expert analysis, here’s what I anticipate judging from the early promos:

• A lot of skin. These men are so cut, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had to remove their shirts during casting. (Question for Harrison!)

• A lot of needless drama. If producers really wanted to make sure all contestants were on the show for the right reason (to find love), they could. If he says, “I’m gonna win,” he’s not. Look out for a man named Bentley. Ashley heard from a fellow Bachelor alum who’s friendly with his ex-wife that he’s supposedly there to promote his business. Ashley chooses not to ask him about it directly, but instead trust the sincere vibe he’s not giving off. In the second clip embedded below, he explains that he already knows it won’t work, that he could care less, and that maybe he would feel differently if Emily Maynard were the Bachelorette. I hope he gets kneed in the nuts at some point.

• A lot of booze. In the web exclusive clip below, we see contestant Tim is rendered incoherent for his first sit-down chat with Ashley and eventually passes out. You can judge him. As someone who has to have at least two mojitos in her to make it through this show, I shouldn’t.  READ FULL STORY

Who's your favorite TV couple now? (Don't hurt us, Leslie and Ben!)

We’re just hours away from tonight’s two-part, one-hour season finale of Parks and Recreation, and if you want a tease of what’s in store, cocreator Mike Schur gave EW’s Dan Snierson 10 of them. Naturally, the first hint is about Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ben (Adam Scott) trying to hide their new relationship from everyone so they don’t get in trouble with boss Chris (Rob Lowe). I cannot tell you how invested I am in these two staying together. Somewhere along the line — maybe in front of the wildflower mural on the second floor? — they became my favorite TV couple.

In case you missed it, PopWatchers, our own Fringe Fairy/Hidden Gems expert Annie Barrett made an appearance in the front row of the Dancing With the Stars ballroom last night. Read her recap here. Instead of her regular phone call with Tom Bergeron for “The Host’s Leaderboard,” the two will be doing a video version of their weekly podcast tonight from his dressing room. Look for that to post on PopWatch Wednesday afternoon. In the meantime, let’s all wish Annie luck in achieving her Day 2 goal at Planet Mirrorballus: “to get Maks to welcome you to EW.com using only his ass. There is no reason this shouldn’t happen.”

Alex Pettyfer to star in Channing Tatum stripper movie 'Magic Mike.' Love it already.

Alex-Pettyfer

I'll admit as someone who saw the Christopher Atkins' movie
A Night in Heaven way too young, I've got an unusual appreciation for the male stripper genre. But I truly believe Magic Mike, the film inspired by Channing Tatum's early days as an exotic dancer, moving forward is something to celebrate. First, I love that Tatum pursued turning his tale into a film whether or not his reps wanted him to. Now, I love that director Steven Soderbergh has cast Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four, Beastly) as the young stripper Tatum's character will mentor. Have I ever seen Pettyfer act? No. But like most people who read his recent VMan cover story, I'm curious about the Brit who supposedly has the phrase "Thank you" tattooed on his lower abdomen -- "In case I forget to say it," he told VMan, winking. He's not afraid to speak his mind -- he's no fan of Los Angeles, as he reveals in that piece -- but he's also got a softer, quiet side, as he showed when he made his U.S. talk show debut with Ellen DeGeneres. He told her she stars in his favorite animated film (Finding Nemo), then gamely but shyly took off his dress shirt to put on the I [heart]

 Ellen T-shirt she had made for him. Watch that clip below. The 21-year-old knows how to remove a shirt. (“Do you want to help me?” he asked Ellen. Looks like a bad boy, talks like a gentleman? Sexy!)  READ FULL STORY

Andy Samberg will swim with sharks for Shark Week, probably not wearing this

Details for the 24th annual Shark Week — kicking off July 31 — are emerging. Today, Discovery announced that this year’s “Chief Shark Officer” Andy Samberg will host his own special with the working title Shark City. Per the network, “Samberg travels to the Bahamas and takes the plunge — literally jumping into the shark-filled waters to introduce viewers to a specific group of sharks that live off the shores of Nassau. They each have their own distinct personalities, quirks and feeding patterns. Learn how they size each other up, what they like to eat and what scares THEM.” That’s all the info I have, but if this is something like Shark Week regular Stuart Cove introducing Samberg to individual Caribbean reef sharks and revealing what he’s come to know about them over the years he’s led his underwater adventures, that could be totally fun. If you’re going to swim with relatively non-threatening sharks like that, you’ve got to give us something different, and finding out that this shark responds more to women in bikinis and has therefore earned whatever nickname is acceptable.  READ FULL STORY

Royal Wedding poll: Which plot point from Lifetime's 'William & Kate' do you most wish was true?

It happened: Just six days ahead of Friday’s Royal Wedding, I found myself flipping channels Saturday night at my parents’ house, landing on Lifetime’s William & Kate right as Kate Middleton fled Prince William’s 21st birthday party. (He had invited another young woman up to help him blow out the candles.) “I’m the girl he hangs out with, not the one he brings home,” Kate said to her trailing friends, echoing the snooty mean girl who’d just assured her that William wouldn’t have time to socialize with his flatmate (who he was secretly sleeping with) at this public event. And with that, I was sucked in — not only to the rest of the movie but also to the repeat so I could see what I’d missed. You can watch William & Kate, “inspired by true events,” online now. SPOILER ALERT! The most ridiculous plot points make our poll below.  READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': What do you think season 3 will look like?

If you missed last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries and intend to watch it, stop reading now. SPOILERS FOLLOW. If you’re good to go, I’ve got to know: Are you suddenly hoping Klaus succeeds with the sacrifice, becomes a werevamp (or vampolf? it’s more European?), and tries to start his own hybrid race in season 3? I am.  READ FULL STORY

'Justified': Raylan's 'ready to explode.' How great will these final two episodes be?

When Justified exec producer Graham Yost teased that something horrific would happen at the end of season 2′s eleventh episode that would have Timothy Olyphant’s Raylan Givens “ready to explode,” we should have guessed he meant the (presumed) death of his Aunt Helen, but I didn’t see it coming until Dickie and his new Coover (Noover?) showed up in her kitchen. Watch the scene below. I hate to see a strong woman like Helen go, but if it was her on the stretcher shown in next week’s kickass promo (also embedded below), I like that she went out shotgun in hand. (We know from her gasp she was hit, but there were two shots fired.) I also like how it instantly made everything more complicated: Raylan already hates his father, whose new partnership with outlaw Boyd is to blame for Helen taking a bullet, but does he hate Dickie more? Will Raylan, who had no problem going rogue this episode, use his always-loaded guns on Dickie for revenge, or will he control himself and bring him in by the book? Will Mags turn on Dickie, who she’s already all but disowned, after what he did to Givens-Bennett peacekeeper Helen, or will she not want to lose another son to Raylan? And where does this leave Raylan and Boyd, who’s shown alongside Ava raising guns at Raylan in the promo? (Really, Ava?)  READ FULL STORY
