Shocking ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Plot Twist Reveals Lots of People Still Care a Lot About ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Dr. McSpoiler Alert!

You might not care about Grey’s Anatomy. I certainly don’t, and I never did. But even if you’re in the same boat, you’ll probably still get a kick out of the Twitter reaction to the shocking plot twist on this week’s episode.

Here’s what happened…

***MAJOR SPOILER ALERT, DUMMIES***

Dr. McDreamy? AKA Dr. Derek Sheperd, AKA Patrick Dempsey, AKA that kid from 80s classics Lover Boy and Can’t Buy Me Love? He dead. Killed off in a car accident.

To be frank, I did not even realize this show was on the air. But I learned it was on real quick when my Facebook and Twitter feeds were suddenly filled with posts expressing outrage and contempt at Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rimes.

Honestly, it was hilarious. Take a look at just a small sampling of the hysteria:

Of course, the best reaction tweet was actually a reaction to the reaction:

Well said, Mr. Fierstein. Everybody just chill the eff out.

Sony Announces Animated ‘Spider-Man’ Movie to Be Released in 2018

from the directors of the Lego Movie

It was just two months ago that we learned Sony and Marvel Studios had hammered out a deal to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe…and save the brand from Sony’s constant bumbling. Now we’ve got even more good Spidey news.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller, one of the hottest writer/producer/director teams in Hollywood right now, will write and produce an animated Spider-Man movie.

The news comes straight from the new head of Sony, Tom Rothman. He made the announcement on Wednesday at CinemaCon 2015, while also clarifying that the animated Spider-Man will NOT be part of the MCU.

That means we’re actually getting two brand new Spider-Mans…er, Spider-Men, neither of whom wil be played by Andrew Garfield. (Sorry, bro.) There’s the live-action Spidey who is part of the MCU and gets his own movie in 2017, and there’s the animated Spidey who gets his own movie some time in 2018.

Yes, Billy Zane Will Be in ‘Zoolander 2′

He's a Cool Dude

We knew from the beginning that Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson would reprise their roles as Zoolander and Hansel in the upcoming Zoolander 2. After all, the two of them made the official announcement together on the runway at Paris Fashion Week.

Not long after that we got word that Will Ferrell would return to play Mugatu, and that Kristin Wiig and Penelope Cruz had also signed on for top secret roles. But that still left us wondering: what about cool dude Billy Zane? Of all the celebrity cameos in the original Zoolander, his was the best. So would he be returning to play himself in the sequel?

Well, today we finally have an answer. Zane is back. We don’t know if he’ll be making another short cameo, or whether his role will somehow be expanded. But according to this Instagram video from Stiller, he’ll be involved somehow.

Hansel has some #Zoolander2 news about @billyzane

Epic Trailer Roundup: Batman v Superman, Fantastic Four, and Jurassic World

Superheroes & Dinosaurs

In case you’re internet has been broken all weekend, it’s been a hell of a four days for epic movie trailers.

The headliner of Trailerpalooza was the second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which starred Han Solo and Chewbacca and totally caught the internet off-guard on Thursday afternoon. (You can see that one right here.) However, the Star Wars trailer was followed by the premature release of the first Batman v Superman teaser on Friday, a new Fantastic Four trailer on Sunday, and then a new Jurassic World trailer on Monday.

If you’re a movie geek, it’s enough to make your head spin. Luckily, you’re about to get all caught up.

First up, here’s Batman v Superman, starring voiceovers by Charlie Rose and Neil deGrasse Tyson and laser eyes IronBatfleck. Some people hated it. I loved it. You decide for yourself:

Up next is the new Fantastic Four trailer, starring a bunch of actors you’ve never heard of and featuring our first glimpse of Dr. Doom. It’s not terrible:

Now the new Jurassic World trailer starring Chris Pratt, Dinowhisperer. (He rehabilitates raptors. He trains people.) It’s much better than the first trailer:

Should be a pretty fun year for movies, no?

Jurassic World hits theaters June 12, 2015, with Fantastic Four following on August 7. But for Batman v Superman you’ll have to wait until March 25, 2016. Sorry.

New ‘Star Wars’ Trailer…Han Solo…Must Watch 20 Times

"Chewie, we're home."

Today Lucasfilm released a second teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force AwakensI’m not going to dissect it for you. I’m not going to break it down shot for shot and try to explain what it all means. Because eventually the actual film will come out, and it will render meaningless all the time and energy and virtual ink spilled on such analyses and theories.

What I am going to do is tell you that the new teaser trailer is f*cking awesome. That it has lightsabers and tie fighters and x-wings and crashed star destoyers and good guys and bad guys and voiceover by Luke Skywalker and then, at the very end, Han Solo and Chewbacca. Like actual moving images of Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew in his Wookiee suit.

I’ll also just go ahead and admit that, yes, the eight-year-old version of myself that I thought was burried deep in my subconscious kind of lost his shit. Because HAN SOLO AND CHEWBACCA ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS?

Anyway, I hope you’re already watching the thing now and not still reading this. It really is great.

Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens hits theaters December 18, 2015. ONLY 245 MORE SLEEPS!

‘Sopranos’ Creator Finally Explains Final Scene…Kind Of

Don't Stop Believin'

It’s been eight years since the final scene of The Sopranos caused fans around the world to scream at their televisions in unison as a shot of Tony suddenly cuts to black. Since then, critics and fans alike have been debating what happened, and what it all means.

Now, finally, series creator David Chase has explained that final scene which he himself directed. Sort of.

In a long interview with James Greenberg for Directors Guild of America Quarterly, Chase went over the final scene shot-by-shot, explaining how the deeper philosophical, existential meaning of the scene is all expressed perfectly by Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.”

The ceiling I was going for at that point, the biggest feeling I was going for, honestly, was don’t stop believing. It was very simple and much more on the nose than people think. That’s what I wanted people to believe. That life ends and death comes, but don’t stop believing. There are attachments we make in life, even though it’s all going to come to an end, that are worth so much, and we’re so lucky to have been able to experience them. Life is short. Either it ends here for Tony or some other time. But in spite of that, it’s really worth it. So don’t stop believing.

Wait wait wait wait wait. Forget Journey. Did Chase just say “life ends and death comes, but don’t stop believing?” Yes, he did. So then Tony does get killed!

But no, that can’t be right. Chase also says “either it ends here for Tony or some other time.” So I guess he doesn’t die?

Then again, in this very same interview, Chase says, “when it’s over, I think you’re probably always blindsided by it. That’s all I can say.” So I guess that means yes, Tony dies. Unless Chase is talking about the show being over, in which case it is dead, but not necessarily Tony. Unless Chase means both Tony’s life and the show are over.

Dammit! Now I’m more confused than ever. The only thing I really know is that Chase thinks we should all live our lives according to the Gospel of Journey. Which is weird.

Ugh.

Read the entire discussion of the final scene here. It’s pretty good, even if Chase won’t say that my theory is correct and Tony is in fact dead.

 

The Second ‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Is Here, and It Does Not Suck

The first trailer for Ant-Man sucked. It introduced you to Paul Rudd, and Michael Douglas, and the idea of a superhero who’s power is being able to shrink himself to the size of a bug and ride other bugs for transportation. But it didn’t give you any sense of conflict or adversity Hank Pym will face. And as we all know, a superhero is only as awesome as the evil-doers he or she is up against.

Fortunately, the second trailer for Ant-Man fixes all that. Not only does it introduce us to Hope Van Dyne, played by Evangeline Lilly. Not only does it introduce us to some evil business dude trying to make weapons. And not only does it give us our first look at Yellowjacket, Ant-Man’s mortal enemy. It also gives us glimpse at a fantastic fight scene with a pretty kickass punchline.

So well done, Marvel. Your movie no longer looks stupid. I  guess I will go see it.

Ant-Man hits theaters July 17, 2015.
