Tag: Wolves? Where? (1-10 of 45)

'True Blood' predictor polls: What's gonna happen before the end of the season?

With two episodes left of True Blood‘s fifth season, we can’t wait to see how the many wars play out: vampire vs. human, vampire vs. fae, and V-drinking wolf vs. hot shirtless wolf (to name a few). Since we have no clue, really, we’re throwing it to you. Weigh in on the polls below.  READ FULL STORY

Anne Rice wants Matt Bomer to play her new werewolf. We're okay with that.

Anne Rice has made no secret of the fact that if her new novel, The Wolf Gift, is turned into a film, she’d like Matt Bomer to star as the young San Francisco Observer reporter Reuben, who turns into a “Man Wolf” and is hunted while he searches for answers. As she reiterated on Good Morning America this morning (watch the interview below), she sees all her books as films as she’s writing them and always envisioned Bomer as her leading man. “I think he’s a charming, wonderful actor. I think he’s so good in White Collar, so funny and so fresh and so wonderfully handsome, and at the same time, sort of unassuming and charming,” she said.

A rep for Rice tells EW there’s no news of the book being optioned for a movie to share yet — “But soon I hope.” Are we all in favor of Bomer playing the werewolf? Here’s how Rice describes Reuben on the first page, to help you decide: READ FULL STORY

Contrarian Corner: Let's talk about 'The Grey'

the-grey-liam-neeson

The Grey, Liam Neeson‘s latest January release that features the gruff 59-year-old Irishman screaming at and fighting with every living creature around him, may have gotten a middling review from EW critic Lisa Schwarzbaum, but it still managed to debut with $19.6 million over the weekend, and earned many positive reviews from critics across America. (Audiences issued the film a “B–” CinemaScore grade, with 76 percent giving it an “A” or “B”.) A lot of people, it’s safe to say, were very much on board with the man vs. wolf film.

Here’s the thing, though: The Grey was the most depressing film I’ve seen in years. I disliked every single character in the film. Heck, I was rooting for the wolves to prevail, just so the movie would end! (WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD) READ FULL STORY

Robert Pattinson's new buzzed 'do: Love it? Hate it?

Just when the tween world had started to recover from the shock and “awww” when Justin Bieber chopped his famous windswept locks, Robert Pattinson started the mourning process all over again when he debuted his newly buzzed dome at last night’s People’s Choice Awards. (If Taylor Swift decides to get rid of her bangs, the tween world as we know it may just collapse in on itself.) READ FULL STORY

'Twilight: the Musical': It's happening

Broadway is about to get a little extra sparkle in those famous neon lights.

It was recently announced the Twilight musical is officially happening. Before you book your tickets to NYC (or, conversely, get the heck out of Times Square) you should know it’s not expected to have a very long run. Twilight: The Musical will make its off-Broadway debut as a one-night-only staged reading on January 16, and the proceeds will benefit the charity Blessings in a Backpack.

'Finding Bigfoot,' a real show, premieres Sunday Jan. 1

A new season (?!?!) of Finding Bigfoot premieres Sunday, Jan. 1, at 10 p.m. ET on Animal Planet, and I just might tune in to witness the stunning ineptitude of the “expert team of true believers” in person.

Frankly I cannot fathom why it’s taken them so long to find me, considering I moved to the West Coast SIX MONTHS AGO and have been dying to get discovered! Sometimes I even leave my giant sneakers outside the door in my Melrose Waste of Space apartment complex. How have the true believers not picked up on their stench and size? Yoo-hoo! Experts! I am RIGHT HERE.

Vote in the important poll below…. if you can find it.

That last one is coming soon to EW.com whether you like it or not!

'Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway' -- Share your memories here!

On Jan. 1, Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway will end its 10-week run, and the only thing those lucky enough to have seen it will have left is their souvenir coffee mugs. Actually, that’s not true. The coffee mugs are already sold out. It’s fitting that Jackman closes the show with Peter Allen’s “Once Before I Go,” which includes the lyric “But unless I spread my wings again, I’m afraid I’ll never soar, so hang on to the memories and hold me close once more,” because that’s exactly what you want to do it’s the memories you take with you. Memories like him making his entrance singing “Oh What a Beautiful Morning’” and your mother letting out an audible, enraptured “Oh” groan heard by at least three rows. I saw the show twice last week. I’ll share my favorite memories if you share yours.  READ FULL STORY

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part I': A hater's guide

twilight-eclipse-hater

The last couple of weeks have been worrying ones for someone who has been tasked with writing a “Hater’s Guide” to each Twilight movie but who remains open to the possibility that one day the vampire franchise might actually produce a decent film. After all, if an infinite number of monkeys given an infinite amount of time can write the works of Shakespeare, then it would surely take just one chimpanzee a few weeks to write a film better than, say, 2008′s thunderingly dull series opener Twilight or 2009′s  The Twilight Saga: New Moon which, to the best of my recollection, consists entirely of Kristen Stewart’s heroine Bella looking out the window and watching the seasons change. In real time. READ FULL STORY

Who's your favorite pop culture werewolf?

Werewolves are the Rodney Dangerfield of the Monster world, by which I mean they gets no respect and they are completely insane. That’s the joy of the werewolf: Whereas vampires represent everything attractive and high-falutin’ about society — eternal youth, sex appeal, being vaguely European — werewolves are all about the loss of control. That can be played for drama (as in the original Wolf Man), or for comedy (see: Teen Wolf), or for terribleness (see: the remake of Wolf Man and Teen Wolf Too.) Next week sees the return to the big screen of your niece’s favorite werewolf, Taylor Lautner’s Jacob Black, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn; Part 1. So what better time to ask the big question: Who’s your favorite pop culture werewolf? Seth Green in Buffy? Jack Nicholson in Wolf? Lady wolf Katharine Isabelle in Ginger Snaps? Take the poll below! Quick, before the full moon rises! READ FULL STORY

Kristen Stewart talks about punching Chris Hemsworth in the face -- Watch!

During a visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday night, Kristen Stewart shared what it was like being cemented at Grauman’s Chinese Theater (“It was definitely one of those moments”), how her clumsiness caused her to unintentionally (or was it?!) punch her Snow White and the Huntsman co-star Chris Hemsworth right in his handsome mug, and of course, Twilight.

When asked about the upcoming m-m-m-m (that’s Kristen Stewart talk for “a movie,” PopWatchers) Snow White and the Huntsman, Stewart regaled about how she inadvertently slugged Hemsworth during a scene (which she revealed will be kept in the movie) so hard that it made an audible pop. Stewart, cocking her fists, told the Leno audience, “Girls, if you’ve ever wondered if it works, it works!… I basically knocked him right out of his close-up.” Watch the interview below: READ FULL STORY
