AMC announced today that it renewed its original Western drama Hell on Wheels for an expanded fourth season. For its third season, Hell on Wheels was moved to Saturday – a day that AMC has traditionally devoted to classic Western films and television shows – and the show attracted a larger audience than it had in its second season on Sunday nights. In its third season, Hell on Wheels delivered an average audience of 3.3 million viewers, live and with three days of time shifting. ( Collapse )

Just in time for next week’s release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the first Jennifer Lawrence-centered clip from director David O. Russell’s new film American Hustle has been released online. The story is based on the Abscam sting operation that uncovered widespread political corruption in the late 1970s. In this clip, we see Lawrence’s character putting something in the microwave covered in aluminum foil, then railing against the new contraption to Christian Bale after it explodes and catches fire. Lawrence is unsurprisingly great in the clip, and many are eager to finally catch a glimpse of American Hustle given that Russell’s last film, Silver Linings Playbook, was a major awards season player and nabbed Lawrence her first Oscar.
Hit the jump to watch the clip, which contains NSFW language. The film also stars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Louis C.K., Michael Pena, and Jack Jones. American Hustle opens in limited release on December 13th before going wide on December 18th.

Karla Álvarez has died at the age of 41 from an alleged respiratory failure, Mexican journalist Gustavo Adolfo Infante confirmed on Twitter. "Unfortunately I confirm that passing of actress Karla Álvarez at the age of 41. May she rest in peace." The actress was known to play the villain in telenovelas and her last melodrama was in this year's "Qué Bonito Amor" where she played a prostitute named "Irasema." It was rumored that álvarez had been battling with alcoholism and an alleged eating disorder, and reports earlier this year had rumors circulating that she was being forced out of the telenovela because her addictions were affecting her reliability at work.
Karla Ávarez rose to fame after her starring role in "María Mercedes," where she played Thalia's younger and stubborn sister. After that soap, she participated in telenovelas like "Buscando El Paraíso," "Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma." In 1997 she was given the opportunity to star in a telenovela titled "Mi Querida Isabel" with Ernesto Laguardia. This would be her only starring role throughout her career. She then found success playing the main villain in "La Mentira" with Kate del Castillo. Roles in "La Intrusa," "Alma Rebelde," "Inocente De Ti," "Heridas de Amor," "Las Tontas No Van Al Cielo" followed until her last telenovela this year, "Qué Bonito Amor."
Actors in the entertainment world are shocked at the news, "Surprised and saddened by the surprising death of Karla álvarez. Peace and resignation to her relatives," Carlos de la Mota wrote on Twitter. Comic Adrián Uribe wrote, "Surprised with the death of Karla Álvarez, may she rest in peace."
It all started when Chris, who you may remember from his “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop”/”No Better Love” Rocafella days as part of the group Young Gunz aka Chris and Neef, posted a yacht photo on his Instagram for Throwback Thursday.
Chris eventually deleted the photo but not before it went viral, sending Twitter into a tailspin over whether or not the naked woman on his lap was a young RihRih.
What do you think, photoshop or is she guilty as charged?

Why is the Chinese Internet obsessed with writing gay Sherlock Holmes fanfiction?
In one story published on MTSlash.com, a Chinese Internet forum, "sexual desire coursed through Sherlock's chest as his heart beat wildly." In another, Dr. John Watson is a part-time porn star; in the first chapter, Sherlock Holmes deduces that his sidekick-to-be became an adult film actor to pay off his student loans from medical school. "You've only known me for five minutes," the indignant Watson protests. "That's long enough for me to come to a conclusion," Sherlock responds.
Since 2010, when the BBC television series Sherlock first aired, a fascination with Benedict Cumberbatch, the show's star, has inspired a new wave of gay romance literature on the Chinese Internet. It's perhaps not surprising that Sherlock, based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective stories, is popular in China -- it has received over 24 million views since it first became available on the Chinese video site Sohu TV in March 2011. But in certain corners of the Chinese Internet, Cumberbatch's Sherlock is just as likely to ravage his loyal sidekick Watson, played by Britain's Martin Freeman, as he is to solve mysteries. "Sherlock's tongue was like an all-powerful key," wrote one author of a story told from Watson's point of view, "Unlocking all the doors of my heart."
China loves Cumberbatch. According to an Oct. 29 article on the Chinese news site Caijing, the 37-year-old Cumberbatch, whom the Chinese call Curly Fu, "is the reason a new wave of Chinese viewers have turned to British television." (‘Curly' describes the star's hairstyle, while 'Fu' is a shortened Chinese transliteration of 'Holmes.')

As reported earlier this week, Lady Gaga's "ARTPOP" album seems destined for a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart next week, securing the diva her second chart-topping set.
Presently, industry sources forecast the album to sell between 240,000 and 250,000 by the end of the tracking week on Nov. 17. That's down slightly from its 260,000 projection on Wednesday (Nov. 13). As we've noted previously, sales forecasts often change throughout the week, based on many variables.
The new Billboard 200's top 10 will be revealed on Nov. 20.
The new album was released on Monday (Nov. 11), bucking the trend of most albums hitting retail on a Tuesday. Because of Lady Gaga's move to Monday, most other albums that were scheduled for a Tuesday (Nov. 12) release were also moved up one day to Monday.
"ARTPOP" follows Gaga's No. 1-debuting "Born This Way" in 2011, which launched with 1.1 million sold (a number amplified by a temporary 99-cent sale deal by Amazon MP3). Overall, "ARTPOP" will rack up the fifth top 10 set for Gaga, who previously notched top 10s with her first album "The Fame" (No. 2 peak in early 2010), "The Fame Monster" (EP) (No. 5 in 2009), "The Remix" (No. 6 in 2010) and "Born This Way."
Eminem's current chart champ, "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," will likely fall to No. 2 with around 210,000 for the week.

The MPAA has updated its anti-piracy guidelines for movie theaters, providing tips and tricks on how to catch “camming” pirates on the spot. Among other things the movie group wants theaters to forbid the use of mobile phone cameras, and be vigilant of suspect cup holders and cameras built into eyeglass frames. To increase motivation, theater employees who bust a movie thief can look forward to a $500 reward.
To prevent movie piracy, theaters nowadays are becoming more secure than some airports.
During pre-release screenings and premieres employees are often equipped with night-vision goggles and instructed to closely monitor movie goers. In some cases members of the public are instructed to hand over all recording-capable devices including phones, or even their candy.
While these measures are not always appreciated by the average movie goer they appear to have had some effect, as so-called “CAM” releases are becoming more rare. Perhaps motivated by this success, the MPAA has now updated its “Best Practices to Prevent Film Theft” guide for movie theaters.
In the revised guide the MPAA has stripped the billions of dollars in claimed losses that were included previously, but stresses that illegal camcording remains a significant problem. The movie industry group therefore advises theater owners to strictly prohibit the use of equipment that can record audio, video, or even take photographs.
“The MPAA recommends that theaters adopt a Zero Tolerance policy that prohibits the video or audio recording and the taking of photographs of any portion of a movie,” MPAA states.
The best practices now also clarify that when a suspect individual is spotted, theater employees should take immediate action. Even when in doubt, the local police should be notified as soon as possible.( Collapse )

Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” is expected to cross the $500 million mark globally on Saturday, becoming one of the most successful sci-fi movies of all-time and the biggest box office hit of both Sandra Bullock and George Clooney’s careers.
The 3D sci-fi smash, which is being tipped for a run at the Oscars, has earned a boffo $235.9 million domestically and over $261 million overseas. Last month, “Gravity” became the highest-grossing live-action feature in October history with over $400 million worldwide.
Bullock’s previous highest-grossing film was “Speed” ($350.2 million) while Clooney’s benchmark was “Ocean’s Eleven” ($450.6 million).
“We know what we have here,” Warner Bros distribution president Dan Fellman recently told Variety. “This is a phenomenon where people are asking friends and family not only if they’ve seen the film, but where.”
The $100 million space odyssey largely benefitted from premium 3D and imax ticket prices as well as repeat viewings.
Greg Foster, chairman of Imax, called “Gravity” an “early Christmas resent” for studios and theatrical exhibitors. “The habit of going to the movies is created when you have a great experience,” he said.
Co-financed by Warner Bros. and RatPac Dune Entertainment, “Gravity” is expected to remain in theaters through Thanksgiving.
Apparently the lyric is: "You probably wanna put your stinky dick in me, you fucking queer"
Scott goes on to remark that he often dreads reading interviews with actors and hopes this won't be another that he recoils from. “Sometimes talking about acting can be reductive and a bit boring. Of course,” he adds, breaking into a wry, self-mocking grin, “I'm not like that. I'm completely fascinating. Everything I say is a bon mot. It's epigram after epigram. It's like sitting with Oscar Wilde... Although I have better hair!”

On Thursday, it was announced that Lady Gaga's critically maligned album ARTPOP was predicted to sell between 240,000 and 260,000 copies its first week. That's a long way down from "Born This Way," which sold 1.1 million copies in its first week. The numbers wouldn't be bad for anybody else, but are a disaster for both Gaga and Interscope.
Interscope Records put forth $25 million for ARTPOP's promotion. That's the most money any record company paid for promotion since Michael Jackson's "Invincible" had a budget of 30 million. The $25 million budget for ARTPOP includes payments to radio stations to play the singles, payments to media outlets to hype Gaga up, travel expenses, and other gimmicks. We are told that Interscope will have to lay off at least 50 employees after Gaga's disaster.
It is interesting to note that last week, Interscope had an emergency meeting with Billboard about Lady Gaga. It is alleged that they wanted Billboard to count indirect streams of Lady Gaga performing at the YouTube Music Awards towards the chart position of her song "Dope." The song, which was also pushed by thousands of free copies given away to those who pre-ordered the album, came in at number 8. This number is not representative of the song's true popularity. It just means that anybody who watched the YouTube Music Festival contributed points to Lady Gaga's chart position. It is completely misleading.
We are told that in the next couple weeks, Lady Gaga will tone down her act. "She now realizes her bizarre act is overshadowing her music," a record industry source tells us. Perhaps she should consider making decent music as well.
Pop quiz: which musical act sold the most U.S. albums in the 2000s? Not the Beatles, not Elvis, not Madonna, not Michael Jackson. By a margin of 2 million, the honor belongs to Eminem, who sold 32.2 million albums during that span.
Last week he added another 792,000 units to his career tally with the debut of his latest album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. The LP’s opening-week performance was the year’s second-best, trailing only Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience. Eminem’s first-week totals also mark an improvement on his popular 2010 album, Recovery, which sold 741,000 units, and 2009′s Relapse, which moved 608,000.
So what, exactly, is causing Eminem to buck industry trends and actually improve his commercial performance from album to album? It seems to be a mix of a loyal fan base, clever marketing and smart partnerships. And it begins with artistry.

No Stan bait..promise. I just thought this article was interesting and there are very few artists especially solo artists that do this well continually for so long. I think it's because he keeps it about the music and he always makes his music honest/personal. Plus he rarely is in public or does interviews so fans are always excited to hear what's next from him. Also JT had even bigger numbers than Em..and of course it probably had to do with his ban on music for like 5 years. It makes me wonder- everyone is so worried that Britney isn't promoting the shit out of her album. But in 2013 is it better to be more low key than all over the place? Especially if you already have a following? How would you market your fav ontd?
We’re one step closer to meeting Dad.
CBS on Friday ordered a pilot of the How I Met Your Mother spin-off How I Met Your Dad.
The network is calling the buzzed-about comedy project a “kindred spirit” of the original series — only this one tells the story of a relationship from a female point of view.
CBS also notes that HIMYD will be a brand-new story with new characters (lest you think that Slutty Pumpkin was finally going to have her day in the sun.)
UPDATE: HIMYM co-creator Carter Bays took to Twitter late Friday to clarify that, contrary to previous reports, the new project’s characters will not be introduced during the existing series’ final season.
“This will be its own, totally new show,” he tweeted.
HIMYM‘s Emily Spivey, Craig Thomas and Bays will write and executive-produce the potential series alongside 20th Century Fox TV.
can't decide if this is gonna get cancelled after the pilot or will last 9 seasons WHAT'D U THINK

Michael Motes raised one of Hollywood's biggest stars and is now planning a tell-all memoir
Smiling sweetly, an 11-year-old Julia Roberts poses for a family Christmas picture in front of her stony-faced stepfather Michael Motes.
It appears that even as a child she was good at acting. Her unmistakable smile – which would go on to captivate audiences around the world – was hiding a traumatic home life.
In reality, Julia “feared and despised” Motes, an alcoholic who is said to have made her life, and that of her siblings, a complete misery.
The actress is currently promoting her new Oscar-tipped movie, August: Osage County, in which she plays an adult daughter returning home for her father’s funeral and coming to blows with her dysfunctional family.
But we can reveal that at the same time, her real-life childhood demons could come back to haunt her.
In an investigation into her grim past in Smyrna, Georgia, we tracked down Motes, a man she has always refused to speak about.
Uncovering this exclusive photo of Julia, now 46, and Motes, now 68, together, we discovered how her stepdad is now planning a tell-all memoir about their past.

In a sign that things may be turning around for Lamar Odom, the troubled NBA star had a two-hour meeting with Los Angeles Clippers management after training with the team on Friday, PEOPLE has confirmed with multiple sources.
The power forward, who was dropped by the Clippers earlier this year after a disappointing season, has been battling substance abuse issues and marital problems with his wife, Khloé Kardashian.
"He has been talking to them for weeks," a source close to the Kardashian family tells PEOPLE. "He's close to signing. They were definitely apprehensive but Lamar has shown huge improvement over the last few weeks and everyone around him believes he's sober."
Odom, 34, has been trying to get his life back on track since news of his drug addiction broke over the summer and he was arrested for DUI in August.
"He has a great support system. It's all up to him at this point. He's the one who can seriously f––– his life up," the source adds. "But he has the tools to stay sober and he's well-aware that one false move costs him his career."
Odom also struggled with trouble in his four-year marriage to Kardashian, 29, after infidelity rumors surfaced (which he denied) and the pair were living separately.
But the couple, who've been seen together recently, have been "going to therapy together," a second source tells PEOPLE.

Ewan McGregor and Zoe Saldana have joined Don Cheadle's Miles Davis biopic Kill the Trumpet Player.
Kill the Trumpet Player centers on a few dangerous days in the life of Miles Davis (Cheadle), as he bursts out of his silent period and conspires with a Rolling Stone writer (McGregor) to steal back his music. Saldana will play Frances Davis, Miles' former wife.
Cheadle will make his feature directorial debut from a screenplay co-written by Steven Baigelman.
BiFrost's Daniel Wagner is financing and will produce with Robert Ogden Barnum, Cheadle and Lenore Zerman for Crescendo Productions, Darryl Porter and Vince Wilburn Jr. Executive producers are Pamela Hirsch, Cheryl Davis, Erin Davis, Cassian Elwes and Baigelman. Musician Herbie Hancock, a Davis collaborator, will also participate.
"Don is one of our generation's greatest actors, and this is the role he was born to play. His take on the conventional biopic of one of music's most celebrated icons is cinematic 'jazz' and too unique to resist," said Wagner in the announcement. "It fits naturally with BiFrost's commitment to support talent and their passion projects, so we are thrilled to work with Don on his feature directorial debut."
The long-gestating project was packaged by UTA, which is handling U.S. rights. IM Global is handling international distribution at the American Film Market.
At AFM, Cheadle dismissed the notion that Kill the Trumpet Player will be a traditional biopic.
"Let's kill that term, OK? I hope with this film we can kill the biopic. This film won't try to give a broad overview of Davis' life and give short shrift to this man's story," he said at the time. "For us as creative people, the time of his life that was most interesting was the five years when he wasn't playing, when he was silent. What was going on in his mind? And how did he come out of it and return to music?"
McGregor, repped by UTA, Sloane Offer and U.K.'s United Agents, will next be seen in crime drama Son of a Gun, and he is currently filming Mortdecai with Johnny Depp and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Saldana is repped by ICM Partners. She stars in Out of the Furnace and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, Nina Simone biopic Nina and Infinitely Polar Bear.
Excited for this! And no Don Cheadle tag?
Akon, Akon, Akon. Shame on you. WizKid? Well, I have no clue who you are, but apparently you’re some sort of Akon “protege”. The two artists have an upcoming concert and video shoot taking place in Ghana. Allegedly, some of the Ghanaian models were turned away because they were too dark and were told by the agent the two artists were looking for “half-caste” women. Half-cast meaning mixed.
A model reported on the day of the shoot some girls were turned away as the agent (or the man responsible for calling them) informed them that “they now want half cast girls”. A term used to describe girls with mixed heritage, usually ones with white blood in them.
“THEY”, most likely referring to WizKid, Akon and/or his music video producer, turning away a fleet of arrivals originally requested to attend by the model scout. In fact, the agent requested if the girls could help him seek light skinned girls because ‘THEY’ were so adamant on this request even on late notice.
Nigeria, where WizKid is from, and Senegal where Akon is from, are countries both flooded with girls bleaching their skin simply because of such discrimination and being made to feel ugly if dark. Not just in media and modelling, but general favours in life. Whilst there are good people in both countries trying to reverse the self esteem damage of such activities such as Adama Paris who banned skinned bleach models from the Senegalese national fashion week, Akon and Wiz Kid’s team are trying to further such acts internationally.
If this is the intentions Akon and the arrogant side kick WizKid wish to introduce to Ghana, then we will be more than glad to uninvite them. Unfortunately for these bigots, Ghana has never been a land where girls are discriminated for skin tone in any field. In such matters, it is obvious they will pass the blame onto an employee to maintain their reputation. But for any such behavior, both these artists should be boycotted until their position is clarified.
If this “half-cast” casting was truly in effect, you can all blame colonialism.
According to the latest issue of OK! Magazine, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are getting back together. Well, that wasn’t too difficult to predict, was it?
Ryan and Eva Mendes always had a ticking time bomb on their relationship. Sure, they were both insanely attractive people, but how similar are they, really? Not just personality wise, but in terms of their careers? Look at where Ryan is now with his career, and where Eva is with hers. Also, there have been a lot of recent reports about trouble in their relationship, reportedly due to Ryan’s insistence on getting married and having children and Eva’s apathy towards settling down.
In addition, there have also been several reports about Eva’s domineering nature and how her controlling behavior is slowly driving Ryan away – and back to Rachel. I mean, Ryan and Rachel were really one of the cutest couples to ever exist, so sue us for hoping that this story is true. McGosling forever!
Of course, OK!’s report simply states that after Ryan’s unofficial breakup with Eva, Ryan has slowly been seeing more of Rachel, who also happens to be single right now. There aren’t many details available just yet, but I have a feeling the writer of this article was also a McGosling fan. In all seriousness, I can see Ryan and Rachel possibly reconciling, but not right now. Both of their careers are still too hot and one of the reasons they broke up was that they hated the attention from the press. At this point, they’re both A-list stars and that’s not going away any time soon – so have they simply gotten over that particular hump? Or do you think they’ll never really get over that?
What do you guys think? Are Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams getting back together, or is it just wishful thinking?
This fanfiction rn. But if this is true, god help us all, because the delulu McGosling stans are
