Anna Paquin Jeffrey Wright

The Good DinosaurArlo and Spot are unlikely best friends in 'The Good Dinosaur'

What is it about children's CGI films these days? The emotional turmoil you have to go through is astounding; we don't remember Disney doing that to us when we were kids. Except maybe with 'Bambi'. And 'Dumbo'. Nonetheless, when 'Inside Out' was released this year, it was remarkable to see a visual representation of feelings, and now the writer at the helm of that movie, Primetime Emmy nominated Meg LeFauve, returns with the screenplay for the 'The Good Dinosaur'; which is equal measures hilarious and tempestuous.

True Blood Recap: Bon Temps Residents Finally Get Closure - Through Murder


Anna Paquin Rutina Wesley Stephen Moyer Alexander Skarsgard

Another episode of True Blood, another ten or so shockers – as the show circles the drain, the writers are throwing shocker after shocker at us. So who killed whom in this episode? Read on to find out (or get majorly spoiled, if that's your thing.)

Alexander Skarsgard
Eric is back to his creepy old self. Oh joy.

Well, first of all, let’s talk about Eric for a moment, because who doesn’t love a bit of Eric? He and Pam finally arrived at Sarah Newman’s house after she had been seeing visions of Jason Stackhouse as the Grim Reaper (yes, this plot requires some major dedication). But instead of killing Sarah, a sick, sick Eric fed from her instead, curing his Hep V almost instantly. Yay Eric… maybe. He’s still a Level 100 creep, tbh.

True Blood Recap: The Good Guys Face A Gang Of Vamps


Anna Paquin Stephen Moyer

Oh, True Blood, if only you could continue to delight and gross us out for a couple more years. The show has long since run its course at this point, but showrunner Mark Hudis and co. seem intent on going out with a bang. And by “bang” we mean lots and lots of blood, of course. We probably don’t need to say this anymore, but don’t read ahead if you haven’t seen the latest episode. EVERYTHING BELOW THIS IS SPOIlERS.

Anna Paquin
Anna Paquin has stuck with her Sookie Stackhouse character throughout seven seasons of ridiculousness.

There’s no light reprieve in this one. As the episode begins, Tara is dead, her boyfriend is dead and Sookie is tasked with giving his father the devastating news. Meanwhile, Jason has a message to deliver too – Hoyt Fortenberry’s mother was killed by a vampire and Jason needs to tell his former best friend. This is how we learn that Hoyt is actually still a character on the show.

True Blood's Joe Manganiello Shines Light On Dramatic Season 7 Premiere Shooting


Joe Manganiello Alexander Skarsgard Robert Kazinsky Anna Paquin

True Blood season seven, episode three premiered with a bang last night, killing off one of the series characters in a twist no one saw coming. Well, not exactly no one: Joe Manganiello's character Alcide met his untimely demise after being shot but the actor has said he had sensed a change in the wind for some time.

In dramatic final season style, werewolf Alcide Herveaux was coldly shot in the chest before being shot again in the face by the gun-wielding humans of Bon Temps.

"I called it! I called it last year," the actor told Buzzfeed. "As soon as I read the Season 6 finale and saw that Sookie [Anna Paquin] got with Alcide, I turned to my then-girlfriend right away and said, 'They're going to kill me - and if they don't, they're crazy.'"

The Gloves Are Off And The Fangs Are Out For "True Blood's" Season Premiere


Anna Paquin Rutina Wesley

Welcome back to Bon Temps for a darker, bloodier True Blood season opening than we’ve ever seen. For the final season, the writing team has a fair few loose ends to tie, but with the first episode, they were mostly out to prove that TB still deserves its time slot on HBO. Beware of spoilers below.

Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer
Even the cast must be tired of going in circles at this point

It seems like the infected vampires, who attacked Bellefleur’s (aka Merlotte’s for you oldschool fans) also killed Tara. She will be missed – although maybe not, because her mother later has a vision, which suggests that her daughter – one of the best characters on the show – might not be dead after all.

While attending the premiere of the seventh and final season of the hit HBO show, Paquin told E!News, "Actually, it's not really uncomfortable because we're all like kind of cozy and friends."

Vamps Of "True Blood" Might Be Coming To Broadway In Musical Adaptation


Anna Paquin Stephen Moyer

Singing, dancing vampires. It might sound like the entertainment industry is collapsing in on itself, but the concept is on its way to become a reality with a musical based on HBO’s True Blood. HBO is in “very early discussions” for the project, according to Variety. Even so, Nathan Barr, the composer behind True Blood’s score, already has a couple of songs ready for the musical. He plans to present the project to the network next year.

Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer
No news yet on whether Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer or any of the True Blood stars will appear in the musical.

“The story lends itself to a musical,” Barr told E! Online. “The challenge for us is the minute I thought about ‘True Blood: The Musical,’ I myself could kind of groan. I can see the bad version of that. It’s really a matter of finding a way of sort of reinventing it.”
