Unsolved mysteries haunt Mahershala Ali in new ‘True Detective’ trailer

Warrick Page/HBO(NEW YORK) — Restless ghosts from an apparently unsolved case drive the first full-length trailer for True Detective‘s upcoming third season on HBO.

Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali stars in the new season as Detective Wayne Hays, haunted decades later by the case of two children who went missing in the 1980s, as the trailer skips between the past and the present, reminiscent of the show’s mind-bending first season.  

True Detective season one, starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, was critically hailed, while season two — starring Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughan, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch — fell short of the inaugural season’s high-water mark.  

True Detective season three, also starring Stephen Dorff, Carmen Ejogo and Mamie Gummer, premieres January 13 on HBO.

‘The Walking Dead’ Recap “What Comes After” — Rick Grimes’ goodbye…for now

AMC/Jackson Lee Davis(LOS ANGELES) — (SPOILERS AHEAD) After nine seasons, Sunday night marked the last episode for Andrew Lincoln’s bearded butt-kicker Rick Grimes on AMC’s The Walking Dead.

It should be noted, however, that AMC announced when the show ended that Rick’s adventures will continue in a series of AMC movies.

The episode began moments after last week’s left off: Rick is in the same hospital as the pilot episode, looking at his younger self — who turns to him and tells himself to wake up.

In real life, Rick comes to, impaled, but now conscious. Painfully, he pulls himself free, and mounts a horse.

Meanwhile, Anne — formally Jadis — is negotiating her escape with the helicopter voice. Fading, bleeding, a hallucinating Rick remains just ahead of the horse on horseback.

Also on horseback, elsewhere, is Maggie and one of the Kingdom folks. They come across a walker and Maggie bashes its brains in; overkill, as if testing her mettle for Negan.

Meanwhile, Rick finds an abandoned cabin and applies a tourniquet as best he can before he passes out again. Hallucinating, he sees himself back in Atlanta. He’s with Shane, back in their patrol car, talking smack.

Shane reminds him — and the audience — that little Judith is his kid, not Rick’s. Taking it in stride, Rick is trying to make amends when Shane launches at him.

Rick’s snapped back to reality and the horde is all over him in the cabin. He barely scrambles out.

At Alexandria, Maggie shows up, bound for Negan. Michonne blocks her path. “You think Glenn would want this?” she asks Maggie. “For you to go through me?”

Eventually, Michonne relents, handing over the keys.

Maggie faces off with Negan through the bars and orders him to his knees. He immediately goes to work on her mentally, taunting her about Glenn.

She feeds the key into the cell lock. Demands he move into the light. Negan suddenly drops all his attitude and pathetically cries for her to kill him. He begs to be with his dead wife. Maggie demands he get back in his cell.

“I came to kill Negan. You’re already worse than dead.”

He cries, defeated, back inside his cell. “It wasn’t supposed to be like this,” he says to himself.

Maggie meets Michonne outside and they share a smile.

Rick is hallucinating again. He’s with Herschel now, again making amends. Rick then sees people we know to still be alive, dead on a massive pile. And then he sees Sasha — who’s also dead. He tries to make amends with her, too. Like the others, she tells him to wake up.

Rick’s back in the real world. He stumbles into the bridge camp, where Carol tussled with the Saviors in last week’s episode.

Dispatching a few of the newly undead, the horde bears down on Rick. He makes it to the incomplete bridge, and it looks bleak.

Just then, Daryl and his friends show up and plow through the horde. He tries to give up but, Michonne takes him in her arms and she won’t have it. “This isn’t real,” he says…”Wake up!” she tells him, as the others did.

He shambles across the bridge just as another walker gets closer…Daryl, real this time, takes it out. Then another. His friends try to run to him. Instead, as the horde gathers on the span, Rick draws up on a cache of dynamite and blows the bridge…and seemingly, himself.

His friends think he’s dead…

Rick’s body washes up on shore elsewhere, as we see Anne as the chopper approaches. She tucks her pistol to the side, seeming to be ready to force her way aboard.

The chopper voice asks if she has the “A” person she promised. She didn’t, and intended to trick them — until she spots Rick. “I have a ‘B’ she pleads. He’s strong but he’s hurt. I have to save a friend, someone who saved me. Do we have a deal?!”

Rick barely wakes up on board the chopper, to see Anne. “You’re gonna be OK, she says. “They’re gonna save you.” They’re headed who knows where as we fade to black.

We see some new survivors in a clearing, surrounded by walkers.

Just then, shots ring out, clearing a path, and a little girl’s voice calls out, showing them the way.

It’s a little girl, around 10, holding a silver Colt Python. Rick’s pistol. Camera pans up to show her with a katana strapped to her back. “I’m Judith,” she says. “Judith Grimes.”

Years have apparently passed: when we last saw her, she was four or five.

The Walking Dead returns next Sunday, November 11, at 9 p.m. on AMC.

‘Saturday Night Live’ tackles immigration crisis

NBC/Will Heath(NEW YORK) — Saturday Night Live tackled the issue of immigration and the caravans traveling from Central America through Mexico on the last show before the midterm elections.

The cold open featured a sendup of Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle — with Kate McKinnon playing conservative host Laura Ingraham — in full panic mode over the approaching caravan of mostly Honduran immigrants making its way north through Mexico. The caravan is still weeks from making it to the border, but that didn’t stop her guests — Cecily Strong as Jeanine Pirro and Kenan Thompson as David Clarke — from joining her in warning the viewers to be concerned.

“It’s an absolute disgrace,” Pirro responded, to which Ingraham responded, “What is?”

“Just whatever you’re talking about,” Strong’s Pirro responded.

Pirro also showed two videos claiming they were the caravan, when in reality they were a clip of crazy Black Friday shoppers and zombies storming a wall in the Brad Pitt film World War Z.

“We believe he’s actually dating the caravan, which people are labeling the ‘Bradavan,'” Pirro said.

Ingraham also discussed sending troops to the border, declaring, “The goal is to have five soldiers for every one shoeless child,” and checked in with Clarke, the former Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Sheriff.

“The immigrants are 800 miles from our border,” he warned. “If these immigrants walk at a normal pace of 300 miles per day they could be here to vote on Election Day.”

In a not-so-veiled shot at Trump’s pledge to end birthright citizenship, he said, “We’ve also learned that all of the women in the caravan are nine months pregnant and are waiting until exactly after they cross the border to give birth.”

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is “Queen” of the box office with $50 million debut

20th Century Fox (LOS ANGELES) — Bohemian Rhapsody was the champion of the box office, beating expectations with an estimated $50 million debut. The biopic, which stars Rami Malek as Queen’s flamboyant frontman, the late Freddie Mercury, delivered an estimated $72 million overseas, for a worldwide total of more than $141 million.

The weekend’s two other new major releases had good weeks as well, grabbing the second and third positions. It’s the first time since February that the top three spots at the box office were all new releases.

Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms finished in second place, despite finishing short of expectations with an estimated $20 million. The film — which boasts a cast that includes Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley and Morgan Freeman — did much better overseas, where it brought in an estimated $38.5 million, for a global total of $58.5 million.

Tyler Perry’s first R-rated offering, the comedy Nobody’s Fool — starring Tiffany Haddish — came in third, earning an estimated $14 million.

In fourth place was A Star Is Born, which showed tremendous staying power with an estimated $11.1 million haul in its fifth week of release. The same holds true for the film’s overseas numbers. It added an estimated $13.9 million, bringing its worldwide totals to just under $295 million.

Rounding out the top five was Halloween. The sequel to the 1978 horror classic delivered an estimated $11 million in its third week of release.

Boy Erased starring Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and Joel Edgerton — who also directed and adapted the film for the screen, earned an estimated $220,000 from just five theaters in its opening weekend. A Private War, starring Rosamund Pike, debuted with an estimated $72,000 from four theaters.

Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated domestic box office earnings:

1. Bohemian Rhapsody, $50 million
2. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, $20 million
3. Nobody’s Fool, $14 million
4. A Star Is Born, $11.1 million
5. Halloween, $11 million
6. Venom, $7.85 million
7. Smallfoot, $3.8 million
8. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, $3.7 million
9. Hunter Killer, $3.5 million
10. The Hate U Give, $3.4 million

Sequel news: ‘Gladiator’ sequel in the works; ‘Bad Boys 3’ a go

Universal/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — “Are you not entertained?” So declared Russell Crowe’s Maximus in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-winning 2000 film Gladiator.  Now comes word there’s more entertainment in store.

Scott is reportedly moving forward on a Gladiator sequel, according to Deadline. The new film will follow the story of Lucius, the nephew of the evil emperor Commodus, played by Joaquin Phoenix, whom Russell Crowe’s Maximus killed in the movie’s final scene.  The original film won five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Crowe.

In other sequel news, the long-rumored Bad Boys 3 is a go — at least according to Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. “It’s official baby…Bad Boys 3 is happening,” the co-stars of the original 1995 buddy-cop action comedy and its 2003 sequel announced in a video posted to Smith’s Facebook page on Thursday.”  No further details were given, though IMDB gives the sequel’s title as Bad Boys for Life and lists a January 220 release date.

The first two Bad Boys installments, in which Smith and Lawrence played a pair of narcotics detectives, grossed over $400 million combined.

Alec Baldwin arrested after allegedly punching someone over parking spot

ABC/ Heidi Gutman(NEW YORK) — Alec Baldwin was arrested in New York City Friday after allegedly punching someone over a parking dispute.

Police said the 60-year-old actor hit a person who took a parking space Baldwin was attempting to hold for himself on East 10th Street in Manhattan.

Baldwin was taken into custody and given a desk appearance ticket on misdemeanor assault and harassment charges. He’s due in Manhattan criminal court to answer the charges on November 26.

This isn’t Baldwin’s first run-in with the law. In 2014, he was arrested for disorderly conduct after allegedly riding his bike the wrong way down a New York City street and getting belligerent with the police officers who stopped him. And in 1995, he was placed under citizen’s arrest after allegedly punching a photographer.

Baldwin was also involved in a scuffle with a paparazzo in 2013, but no police report was filed.

‘Boy Erased’ author Garrard Conley talks back rubs from Nicole Kidman and texts from Russell Crowe

Garrard Conley and mother Martha Conley; Ernesto Distefano/Getty Images for Westbank and Focus Features(NEW YORK) — Just two years after Garrard Conley’s memoir Boy Erased debuted, Joel Edgerton has turned it into a major motion picture starring Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe.

It tells the true story of Conley’s time in a gay conversion program when he was a teen, sent there by his ultra-conservative parents.

Conley tells ABC Radio it was surreal enough having some of the most intense moments of his life play out on the big screen, but having Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe playing his parents was particularly mind-blowing. He says the two cared deeply about getting the story right and doing his family justice.

He recalls the first time Kidman saw the film, she was sitting behind him in the theater.

“During some of the worst, most intense scenes involving Jared, my character, she gave me this little back rub,” Conley recalls. “It was so surreal and so sweet and maternal in that moment.”

Crowe, meanwhile, shared some special moments with Conley’s father.

“Russell visited my dad’s church without any warning,” Conley says. “Just flew there to Mountain Home, Arkansas, showed up at the church, watched my dad preach and then they started hanging out and like texting each other and it was a really strange month for me, when my dad was like, ‘I’m texting with Russell right now.’”

His dad has yet to see the film, but Conley says it’s his hope “that this story transforms people like him.” 

Boy Erased is out in limited release today, and goes wide on November 16. Conley’s podcast UnErased — which further explores conversion therapy — also debuts today.

Robin Wright and Michael Kelly reflect on final ‘House of Cards’ season

David Giesbrecht/Netflix(LOS ANGELES) — House of Cards‘ sixth and final season debuted on Netflix overnight — and it’s truly the end of an era. The show put Netflix on the map for original content, and its stars, Robin Wright and Michael Kelly, tell ABC Radio they’re proud to have been a part of the revolutionary TV series.

“Netflix actually changed the way people watch television…We made you addicts,” jokes Wright

The series suffered a major blow with Kevin Spacey’s firing from the show amid sexual misconduct allegations, and the 52-year-old actress admits that for a while, she wasn’t sure if it was coming back.

“We had many many discussions and…collectively decided that it was better to complete the season, for the fans, and predominately for the employers, the people who make the show. We would have been putting over 600 people out of a job,” she explains.

When the House of Cards launched in 2013, it seemed like an exaggerated version of the craziness of politics and Washington D.C. However, fast forward several years, and star Kelly, 49, tells ABC that dynamic has flipped.

“I just don’t know how you get much crazier than, than what’s happening in real life, he notes. “I always say, the one thing about House of Cards is that these characters do these things, and there are zero repercussions in real life. That cannot be said about what happens in real life. There’s consequences to your actions, whereas we’re just playing. We’re make believe.”

While the show may be gone after this season, Wright kept one memento so she’ll always remember her character, Claire Underwood.

“I took a pair of her Louboutin heels,” she admits.

Streisand takes the wheel in the latest “Late Late Show” “Carpool Karaoke”

CBS/Terrence Patrick(LOS ANGELES) — Barbra Streisand joined James Corden for his latest “Carpool Karaoke,” which aired on Thursday’s The Late Late Show.

This time around — and possibly to accommodate Streisand’s preferred close-up angle — Corden’s stranded by a parking boot, and needs a pick-up.

Babs rolls up and Corden takes the passenger seat — although nearly regrets it, when Streisand claims she doesn’t like to listen to music so soon after wrapping an album, and because she admitted she failed her most recent driving test three times.

Oh, and there’s that time she drove the wrong way up a highway entrance. “Well, if I’m going to die,” Corden says, “this would be the way to go, ‘at the hands of Barbra Streisand.”’

The pair sang a medley of her songs, from “Enough” to “Memories,” and even her classic, “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” from the movie musical Funny Girl.

Streisand also waxes political, explaining her latest album, Walls, is a reaction to her emotions living during the Donald Trump presidency. “Every song relates to something about what’s going on in these difficult times,” she said. “All I can do is write about it, and tweet.”

Streisand continued, “People deserve the truth. ‘The truth shall set you free’,” she adds, before breaking into the track “Don’t Lie to Me,” accompanied by Corden.

‘Nobody’s Fool’: Tyler Perry shares the message behind the R-rated comedy

Tyler Perry with Tiffany Haddish; courtesy Paramount Pictures(NEW YORK) — Tyler Perry has an important message behind his latest comedy, Nobody’s Fool.

The film follows a recently-paroled Tiffany Haddish, who tries to help her sister — played by Tika Sumpter — get revenge on the man who might be catfishing her. While the rom-com will undoubtedly make viewers laugh, Perry tells ABC Radio he also believes it will make people think.

“Well, she makes a list of what she wants in a man, right?” Perry says, referring to Sumpter’s character, who’s on a search to find Mr. Right. “And she makes this impossible list and when she thinks she’s has everything on the list she realizes, ‘Oh, wait.'”

He continues, “And, so the message for me is everybody is imperfect. And stop trying to make people perfect… In life, you only get to get about 80 percent of what you’re looking for in a spouse or a person. If you get to 80, you win.”

While Perry hopes fans will find the deeper meaning in his R-rated comedy, he already has one exceptional fan cheering him on for his current accomplishments, which includes owning his own movie studio.

“The best part of filming was knowing that I was in the studio with the man who owned it,” says Whoopi Goldberg, who plays the matriarch in Perry’s film. “Because I never met the Warner Brothers. I never met Jesse Lasky from Jesse Lasky Studios. I never met the owners of Universal…They were all gone. And they were all very specifically white guys.”

Goldberg continues, “This is [the] first…[black studio owner] with the the exception [of] I think… Oscar Micheaux. But he never had a studio like this.” 

Nobody’s Fool, also starring Omari Hardwick, Amber Riley and Mehcad Brooks, is now in theaters.
