Count Dracula seems to have really changed his ways, embracing humans and allowing them to stay at his monster-filled Hotel Transylvania after taking a shine to his daughter Mavis' new human boyfriend Johnny. Now the pair have a child together named Dennis, and despite having vampire in his blood, he doesn't seem to possess any monster ability of any kind. When Mavis and Johnny take a break to visit the latter's parents, she asks her dad to babysit her son - but that probably wasn't the best idea. In charge of young Dennis, Dracula enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to train him up to be a real monster, and take him on a trip of their own. But when Mavis finds out what they're up to, she's less than happy and makes to come home. But she's not the only one; Dracula's father Vlad is making a surprise visit, and he's not going to be happy that the hotel is filled with humans.

Following on from the adventures in the Hotel Transylvania, in which Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) was forced to hide a human from the clients of his "monsters only" hotel, things have gotten even stranger.

This new, half human half vampire baby, is accepted by the monsters inhabiting the hotel.

The Lego Movie may just be the best loser in history.
The Lego Movie may not have made it onto the nominees list, but it did make it into the Oscars ceremony and that’s good enough. What better way to revive a stuffy, vaguely morose awards ceremony. Tegan and Sara, plus a massive ensemble cast, took it upon themselves to inject some life back into the night, dominated by heavy social subjects.
Tegan and Sara gave an aptly awesome performance of Everything is Awesome on the Dolby Theater stage.
Better yet, they were joined by Andy Samberg’s comedy-music troupe The Lonely Island, plus Questlove on drums and what looked like Will Arnett in a Batman costume. It’s pretty much your dream Oscars ensemble, right? Or at least a pretty cool NBC alumni reunion.
The former 'SNL' star revealed how the creator of Facebook set up his account, and confessed to calling him for tech support.
At first when someone admits to only having one friend on Facebook, you think the individual is rather lonely, and a bit sad, but that all changes when that one friend is the billionaire inventor behind the social media site, Mark Zuckerberg.
Samberg recalled how Zuckerberg set up his Facebook account
On Wednesday evening (Sept 24th), Andy Samberg paid a visit to his former 'SNL' co-star's talk show, Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show,' and in the hilarious interview, the 'Brooklyn Nine Nine' actor recalled how Zuckerberg convinced him to join Facebook.

Longoria will join the cast for a three-episode arc.
Eva Longoria will guest star on Fox’s breakout comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a full three-episode arc. Is this a smart deal for Fox or Longoria? Both are likely to get a publicity boost from the collaboration.
Longoria has focused most of her efforts off-camera in recent years.
Longoria will play Sophia, a defense attourney, who faces off with Jake (Andy Samberg) in court and gets him interested in the process. Longoria is just one of a lineup of guest stars Fox have appointed recently to boost the profile of the relatively new show. The list also includes Kira Sedgwick, Jenny Slate and Terrell Owens.
Congrats, Lonely Island fans, you're getting a movie.
It was bound to happen eventually – The Lonely Island are getting their own movie. The comedians, who got their start making funny and mildly offensive youtube videos are now collaborating with Judd Apatow on a full-length feature. The trio have come a long way since their first videos – so far they have three excellent comedy albums and have done some memorable work for shows like Saturday Night Live and Brooklyn 9-9.
Soon, longtime fans – who are not all frat boys, we’re sure – will be able to see the trio on the big screen, in their own production. The trio have already done some film work in the past, starting with 2007’s cult comedy Hot Rod.
