Gina Carano proved that she can carry her own film amidst an all-star cast in director Steven Soderbergh’s fantastic Haywire, and now she hopes to throw down once again in Scorched Earth. The narrative centers on a bounty hunter (Carano) who is determined to eliminate a savage outlaw. She eventually infiltrates his gang, but before she can zero in on her mark she becomes involved in ensuring the safety of a slave girl. Though Scorched Earth doesn’t have the budget of a studio driven action flick, the movie’s Western/post-apocalyptic mash-up seems to actually work.
The flick is directed by Peter Howitt, the filmmaker behind the Gwyneth Paltrow and John Hannah romantic drama Sliding Doors. Hannah is also featured in Scorched Earth, and it’s great to see them work once again almost 20 years later.

Scorched Earth hits theaters and On Demand February 2, 2018.
With a career as an author, director, and actor, William Shatner has traveled the world, and that aspect to his life made him a perfect participant on NBC’s Better Late Than Never. Shatner and the rest of the crew (Terry Bradshaw,George Foreman, Jeff Dye, Henry Winkler) are back for some more travels, and this time out they are headed to Berlin, Sweden, Barcelona, Lithuania, Madrid and Morocco. The crew’s travels to Munich were documented earlier in the month during a special preview episode on December 11.
At age 86, William Shatner is still as active as ever, and along with his work on Better Late Than Never he is also taking helicopter lessons! No matter where he goes, Shatner won’t be lugging around a ton of luggage. Click on the media bar to hear the actor explain why he’s a light traveler (Dye is also heard in the clip):

Apparently the early buzz on the film Call Me By Your Name was justified, since it’s now received several Golden Globe and Broadcast Film Critics Association Award nominations, which certainly bodes well for its chances at the Oscars. In the movie, Timothée Chalamet plays a 17-year-old boy who becomes romantically involved with one of his father’s students, Oliver (Armie Hammer), and he says that while the awards nominations are nice, it’s been especially gratifying to hear people’s reactions to the film in person.

Call Me By Your Name is playing now in limited release.
While Ellen DeGeneres may currently be the Queen of Daytime TV, with her talk show still going strong in its 15th season, she hasn’t had a regular presence in prime time since her ill-fated season of American Idol in 2010. But now, she’s back with a new game show on NBC, Ellen’s Game of Games, where contestants play versions of games she’s popularized on her daytime show, but with a chance to win much bigger prizes! With everything she’s already got on her plate, we asked DeGeneres why she didn’t let somebody else host the show. (Click on the media bar below to hear Ellen DeGeneres )
It probably didn’t hurt that she’s also pretty close with one of the show’s executive producers, Ellen DeGeneres. Ellen’s Game of Games airs Tuesday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
There’s no denying that Allison Janney is a talented woman. Her seven Emmy awards — four for playing C.J. Cregg on The West Wing, one for a guest role on Masters of Sex, and two for her current series, Mom — easily attest to that fact. But did you know that Janney has some hidden talents? In fact, it’s kind of ironic that she’s playing Tonya Harding’s mother in the new movie I, Tonya, because when she was a teen, Janney was quite an ice skater herself!
I, Tonya, which also stars Margot Robbie as the disgraced skater, is currently playing in selected theaters.
