Nick Viall isn't the only Bachelor Nation alum who can stage a surprise return, as Andi Dorfman, the former Bachelorette who turned Nick's proposal down in season 10, showed up at Nick's hotel room door on The Bachelor's Feb 20 episode, simply saying, "Hello, Nick," just before the episode ended. Talk about a tease. While fans will have to wait until next week's episode to see the highly anticipated reunion go down, a source exclusively tells E! News, "Everyone who's wanted to see Nick and Andi face to face again will get what they want. It's their first time discussing their relationship since After the Final Rose on Andi's season." Of course, Nick infamously revealed to the world that he and Andi had sex during their time in the Fantasy Suite during that sitdown, and Andi later
The new documentary film, "Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise," begins with her quote, "We must encounter defeats but we must not be defeated, but in fact it may be necessary to encounter defeats so that we'd know who the hell we are." Indeed, Angelou, who was literally transported with a tag on her arm and no adult supervision at the age 3 to Stamps, Arkansas, did not allow life to defeat her. She was a teenage mother who survived rape at age 7, had three marriages, worked with Dr. King and Malcolm X, and wrote a poem for a presidential inauguration. Angelou thrived with a new voice in each decade. "Phenomenal woman wasn't just something she wrote. It was who she was," former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says in the film. Indeed. Though most may remember Angelou as a poet a...
Bil2016 ended with J. Cole dropping the surprise 4 Your Eyez Only album, which topped bilboard’s 200 album chart following its debut in December. As he continues to make moves for his Dreamville crew while he climbs higher and higher into rap’s Mount Olympus, a surprise announcement that J.I.D was the newest signee to Dreamville Records was recently made. So far, not much is known about the Atlanta native outside of his most recognizable single, “The Never Story.” With that in mind, allow HipHopDX to provide several facts about J.I.D J.I.D Is The 7th Signee To Dreamville J.I.D would be the first new artist signed to Dreamville since Ari Lennox in 2015. This rounds out the label’s artist roster to seven. Though Dreamville has yet to produce an artist with the same chart t
Most TV pilots have to do a decent job of setting up the story to draw people in: With its cinematic cast, Big Little Lies doesn’t have this problem, because the HBO audience would probably watch Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon play checkers for seven hours. But Big Little Lies goes a step beyond by casting these very familiar faces in housewife and mother roles, adding glamour to what could be a typical domestic drama, amid an idyllic landscape that the rest of us puny humans can only dream about. While the novel the series is based on by Australian author Liane Moriarty, was an extremely enjoyable airport read, HBO’s production, written by David E. Kelley and directed by Wild and Dallas Buyers Club’s Jean-Marc Vallée, adds layers of sophistication that the book lacks. The soun
Having a famous father may have its perks. For Lisa Marie Presley, however, it isn't enough to prevent a difficult financial situation. As the singer-songwriter made headlines this week after opposing ex-husband Michael Lockwood's request for spousal support, court documents are revealing a glimpse into Lisa's finances or lack thereof. In official docs obtained by E! News, Elvis Presley's daughter claims that she receives monthly income of approximately $100,000 a month from her inheritance. According to the singer, her business manager did not pay taxes that caused her to have "considerable tax liability outstanding from this income over the last several years." She owes the IRS "one and one-half million dollars, and over five million to the Government of the United Kingdom."
Anyone who’s seen the trailers could easily guess that Logan is the best solo Wolverine movie, but it’s more than that. It’s a legitimately special movie that just happens to star superheroes—a film that wouldn’t be out of place at the Academy Awards. And it’s still just as badass as any Wolverine fan could want. The film, co-written and directed by James Mangold, takes place in 2029. Logan (Hugh Jackman) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) are off the grid, clearly following some major ordeals that have left them believing there have been no new mutants born in a long time. As the two live their lives in hiding, suddenly a young mutant named Laura (played by Dafne Keen) comes into their lives. Even more surprisingly, she’s a mutant who has powers remarkably similar to Logan’s. From t
Zhang Yimou’s new film is a laborious fantasy spectacular crossed with a CGI monster movie, set in the days of Imperial China, in a military garrison on the Great Wall. Here, it is revealed that the wall’s purpose is to keep out hordes of Tao Tei – terrifying creatures with T rex heads and great spiny teeth. There is, however, no way of making the Tao Tei actually pay for the wall. The film credits a host of writers including Tony Gilroy, Max Brooks, Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, whose opening credits cheekily claim that their story is based on one of the legends of the wall, while outrageously borrowing a key plot point from Jaws. Matt Damon plays William, a mercenary adventurer who has come to China hoping to steal some of their explosive “black powder”
The opening of Fifty Shades Darker echoes a key scene in M. Night Shyamalan’s “split”: both films feature the flashback of a tormented man, in which his early-childhood self cowers under a bed while an adult hunts for him. In “Split,” the protagonist, Kevin Wendell Crumb, is getting therapy—in Shyamalan’s angry view, too little, too late. In “Fifty Shades,” the second film adapted from E. L. James’s erotic-fiction franchise, Christian Grey is in desperate need of therapy, and, if there were any identifiably human substance to the new film, his seeking it would be central to the plot. At the end of the first installment, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) couldn’t abide the punishment that the dominant Christian (Jamie Dornan) inflicted on her in his “red room of p
Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 is out now. A sequel to Arshad Warsi’s Jolly LLB, this too is comedic in temperament but gets serious when it has to. Read our movie review here: A film demands a good research when it’s based on theme of corruption in Indian judiciary and Jolly LLB 2 scores well on that front. The biggest challenge Akshay Kumar faces in Jolly LLB 2 is to match up to the expectations that the audience has with the franchise. The first instalment had Arshad Warsi as Jagdish Tyagi and he carried the entire film on his shoulder. His friendly courtroom banter with justice Sunderlal Tripathi (Surabh Shukla) is still fresh in our memories. So, when we meet Jagdishwar Mishra (Akshay Kumar), the new Jolly, the first question that comes to our mind is: Has director Subhash Kapoor
