‘Connection Lost’ examines how families now interact with each other through the internet.
‘Modern Family’ are set for a groundbreaking episode later this month, which will examine the way families now interact with each other through social media, their mobile phones and computers. The episode, entitled ‘Connection Lost’, was shot entirely using iPhones, iPads and MacBook Pros and took just two days to film, but over a month to plan and design.
'Connection Lost' will focus on Julie Bowen's character Claire
The episode concerns Claire (Julie Bowen), who, when away on a business trip, becomes concerned about her daughter Haley's (Sarah Hyland) whereabouts. Claire then spends the entire episode frantically using Facetime, Facebook and the Web while waiting in an airport terminal, talking to other family members and trying to track down Haley.

'Modern Family' actress Sarah Hyland has been granted a permanent restraining order against her allegedly abusive ex-boyfriend.

The actress gave detailed accounts of multiple instances when Prokop was abusive and violent to her.
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has spoken out against her ex-boyfriend, claiming he was abusive on multiple occasions, pushing her, choking her and threatening her life. Hyland, who plays Haley Dunphy on the hit ABC series, has been granted a restraining order against former partner Matthew Prokop, who once played a part on the show.

According to court documents, obtained by TMZ, Hyland claimed that it was co-star Julie Bowen, who helped her break free of the abusive relationship. The relationship lasted for four years, with Hyland citing multiple incidents, including one last May, during which Prokop pinned her against a car, choked her and repeatedly called her a “c***.”
Despite the fact that this too-soon spin-off feels like a mere cash-in on the Disney Cars/Planes marketing machine, this sequel is actually a lot more fun than expected. Not only is the animation witty and sometimes even exhilarating, but there are some solid messages in the story. On the other hand, there's also the continuing problem of making movies in which the central characters are inanimate objects with cute faces drawn on them. But never mind: see the movies, buy the toys, keep the kids happy!
After the globe-hopping race in 2013's Planes, the new champ Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook) sees his new celebrity career grounded when he develops a problem in his gearbox. He can still fly, but the torque required for racing stunts could do him in. So he decides to retrain as an aerial firefighter to help his local airfield maintain its certification in time for the annual Corn Festival. In training, he is mentored by veteran chopper Blade (Ed Harris), working alongside his starstruck fan Dipper (Julie Bowen), the noble Windlifter (Wes Studi), the sassy Dynamite (Regina King) and the genius mechanic Maru (Curtis Armstrong). But a raging wildfire is threatening the nearby Fusel Lodge, and the local park superintendent (John Michael Higgins) doesn't want to shut it down with so many stars as guests.
The best touch here is to make Dusty utterly full of himself, never listening to any advice before charging in unprepared for the next challenge. It's predictable and underdeveloped, but it makes this chirpy crop-duster far more interesting, and adds some unexpected diversions in a plot that otherwise heads exactly where it has to go. Meanwhile, the screenwriters pack the dialog with witty puns and some snappy verbal and visual gags that allow the actors to give their vehicles a bit of personality, even if some of this is merely ethnic stereotyping or simplistic hero/villain morality.

'Planes: Fire & Rescue' is no Disney masterpiece, but it builds nicely on the original to set up a third movie.
It could be argued that Planes (2013) was one of the worst Disney movies of recent times. Sure, it was great for say, toddler, but even the easiest pleased kids around saw through its goofiness. Now, the studio appears to have learned from its mistakes and the expected sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue appears to have hit the mark.
Planes: Fire & Rescue builds on the original
We re-join air racer Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook) who learns that his engine is damaged, putting his career in jeopardy. He is forced to change things up and launches into the world of wildfire air attack, joining forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (Ed Harris).

Meet the 'Modern Family' cast that the producers had originally wanted. We're pleased they didn't get their own way, because we can't imagine a better lineup than the one they have!
We can’t imagine a more perfect cast that the one that Modern Family already has. Every single of one of them has made the roles their own, almost like they were written with them in mind. So you’ll be surprised to hear that hardly any of them were the first choice for the parts! But who did the producers have lined up before the perfect cast finally came together?
Craig T. Nelson was first choice to play Modern Family patriarch Jay Pritchett
Family patriarch Jay Pritchett was originally pegged to be played by Emmy Award winner Craig T. Nelson. Best known for his role as Hayden Fox in Coach and as the voice of Mr. Incredible in the 2004 animated film The Incredibles, producers originally approached Nelson although his pay expectations were too high. Ed O’Neill, who the role eventually went to (and who just IS Jay) explained, “When I read [the script] I thought, ‘Oh boy, this is pretty good.’ And I called my managed and he said, ‘Well, they’re out to Craig T. Nelson.’” We’re grateful that they couldn’t afford Nelson because no-one plays grumpy good guy Jay Pritchard quite like Ed O’Neill. We're also sure that Nelson is kicking himself since Sofia Vergara could have been his onscreen wife! We wonder if he'd known that to begin with it would have made a difference?

Check out the action-packed, for-all-family trailer below
In the first trailer for Disney’s Planes: Fire and Rescue, we got a brief introduction to the characters and premise of the sequel to 2013’s Planes, which was in itself a spin-off of another Disney film, Cars.
Planes: Fire And Rescue
The film sees notorious air racer Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook) enter into the world of wildfire air attack after learning that engine is damaged and he may never race again.
Former cropduster plane turned racing sensation Dusty Crophopper overcame his crippling fear of heights during the events of 'Planes', but he's about to show even stronger feats of bravery in his latest escapades. Discovering that some serious damage has been done to his engine, he sadly contemplates that he may have to abandon his racing dreams. Instead, he decides on a new path: aerial firefighting. This time he teams up with Blade Ranger, a long-serving fire and rescue helicopter who's currently recruiting several crafts to take on a big job in the forest as a brutal wildfire sweeps the trees. Joining him is a group of fearless ground vehicles called The Smokejumpers, and together they work to save lives in what could be the most heroic venture of their lives. But will this be a career that Dusty decides to stick with?
