Watch Jennifer Lawrence Threatened by President Snow in “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” Teaser

Watch Jennifer Lawrence Threatened by President Snow in “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” Teaser

Lionsgate(NEW YORK) –  The full Hunger Games: Mockingjay trailer is just days away from being released for the first time, but fans will have to chew on a new 15-second teaser that features a noticeably scared Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.

In the clip, Lawrence picks up a white rose as a voiceover featuring President Snow says, “Mrs. Everdeen, it’s the things we love most that destroy us.”

For those who read the books, the white rose is Snow’s trademark, and in the video it looks as though he’s had one planted in Everdeen’s home to scare her.

Mockingjay — Part 1 opens in November.

“Batman v. Superman”: See the New Batmobile

Warner Bros.(DETROIT) — Many people in Detroit are talking about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring Ben Affleck, and seeing if they can glean anything from the set.

Some lucky fan did just that, as he got clean shots of the new Batmobile that Affleck will be driving when he faces off again the Man of Steel.

“On a set of #batman,” the fan wrote next to a shot of the vehicle, which people commented looks like a mix of the old-school Batmobile and Christian Bale’s tumbler. Another photo shows the vehicle from the side.

The car looks like it almost has wings and is almost a hybrid insect/vehicle.

Batman v. Superman is set to hit theaters on March 25, 2016.

James Gandolfini’s Son: It’s ‘Bittersweet’ Seeing Father’s Last Film

James Gandolfini’s Son: It’s ‘Bittersweet’ Seeing Father’s Last Film

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — James Gandolfini left a number of projects in the works when he died last year at age 51. His latest film, The Drop, just premiered in New York City this week, and a special guest — Gandolfini’s 14-year-old son Michael — was on hand to see his father’s work.

“It was really bittersweet,” Michael Gandolfini told US Weekly about seeing the film. “It was amazing to see him. …The screen comes on, and I see him. I know he was happy — happy acting and happy in that moment. …It was the last time he could be happy filming a movie, so it was very hard.”

“When I think of my dad, the number-one thing I think of is love. His huge arms. Big hands hugging me. Putting his finger in my ear. He was hilarious. The funniest person I’ve ever met,” he added.

Michael Gandolfini said the cast of The Drop has been amazing, including Tom Hardy. 

“Every single person — Tom, Noomi [Rapace], every single person on this cast — they see me and hug me and my mom,” he said. “They’ve included us so well and treated me with the utmost respect.”

James Gandolfini died after a heart attack in June 2013, while vacationing in Italy.

Shia LaBeouf Pleads Guilty to Disorderly Conduct

Shia LaBeouf Pleads Guilty to Disorderly Conduct

Bauer-Griffin/GC Images(NEW YORK) — Transformers star Shia LaBeouf pleaded guilty Wednesday to disorderly conduct in New York after getting arrested in June for causing a disturbance at a Broadway performance of Cabaret.

If the actor, 28, successfully completes treatment for three months and doesn’t run afoul of the law, the charges will be dismissed, the court said. Thus, his sentence has been delayed for six months. Judge Diana Boyar ordered LaBeouf to undergo treatment at the L.A.-area facility The Hills.

During the June incident, LaBeouf stood up in the audience while a performance of the musical Cabaret was underway at Studio 54. Official records state the actor then started yelling at the performers.

He was asked to leave, but then, according to police reports, screamed at the security guard, “F*** you. This is f****** bulls***. Do you know my life? Do you know who the f*** I am? Do you know who I am?”

LaBeouf was charged “for refusing to leave a theatrical performance when asked, for creating unreasonable noise and using obscene language outside of Studio 54, and for spitting at a police officer at the Midtown North police precinct,” Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Russell said in court Wednesday.

LaBeouf has already been “voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction” since July, according to his rep.  “He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery,” his rep, Melissa Kates, told ABC News then.

LaBeouf’s court-ordered treatment at The Hills will be in addition to his voluntary treatment.  He was ordered to appear in court again Nov. 12 to prove his compliance with the judge’s orders.

Report: Joan Rivers Underwent Unplanned Biopsy

Report: Joan Rivers Underwent Unplanned Biopsy

Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) — A source is telling the New York Daily News that Joan Rivers’ doctor allegedly interrupted an endoscopy being performed on the comic to do an unplanned biopsy that cut off her air supply. The biopsy should only be performed in a hospital, the source explains.

According to the source, Rivers’ doctor was on hand — but not performing — the scheduled procedure at Yorkville Endoscopy on August 28th in New York City, when the comedienne’s physician noticed something on her vocal cord and asked for instruments to take a biopsy himself. “He asked and they let him,” the source said, adding, “A huge no-no.”

The source tells the paper that when Rivers’ doctor manipulated her vocal cords, they seized — called a laryngospasm — which cut off her air supply.

Rivers was undergoing what Deborah Norville described to ABC News as “a diagnostic procedure…[to] see why her voice had gotten raspy.”

Rivers reportedly went into cardiac arrest. She died last Thursday at the age of 81.

Meanwhile, when The Celebrity Apprentice returns to NBC, the show will feature a couple of guest appearances by the late legend, Donald Trump revealed on Twitter. He wrote, “We just finished shooting a new season of Celebrity Apprentice and happily for all, Joan plays my advisor in two episodes. She was great!”

NBC has yet to announce a premiere date for the new season of Trump’s competition.

Rivers won the 2009 season of The Celebrity Apprentice, which also featured her daughter, Melissa Rivers. She later served as an advisor on the show in 2012 and 2013.

Rosie O’Donnell on “View” Audition Process, What Viewers Can Expect

Rosie O’Donnell on “View” Audition Process, What Viewers Can Expect

Michael Loccisano/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Rosie O’Donnell is headed back to The View — the daytime talk show, she says, she tearfully left after getting into an on screen fight with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck back in 2007.

In a new interview with Variety, O’Donnell recalls telling her longtime publicist, “‘I’m never going back. You have to call and tell them. Call the lawyer. No matter what they say, I will not go back.’”

But she is back with a different set of co-hosts: Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and author and political analyst Nicolle Wallace.

So how did O’Donnell get the gig? “It was very much like the Hunger Games, how they did it,” O’Donnell says of the audition process.

Last month, all of the candidates went into one room with a table and had to do mock debates with O’Donnell and Goldberg.

“I think Whoopi and I were both a little shocked at having to do a chemistry test,” she says. “I don’t know if there’s a way to test that. It felt very negative and competitive.”

Still, with the co-hosts now picked and an all new set, which will now be in the round, O’Donnell said longtime fans can expect an exciting new show.

“I think it’s going to be must-see TV,” O’Donnell says. “My goal is to come in peace. And the contrast between what the show will be and what it was is going to be glaring.”

O’Donnell says she changed from the woman she was while on the show years ago. Back then, she says she was going through a divorce. Now, she’s happily married. Also, she’s no longer drinking alcohol and even meditates two times a day, according to Variety.

O’Donnell has also contributed to some changes in the show’s format. Along with airing pre-taped news pieces before the Hot Topics segment as a way to objectively explain what the hosts will be talking about, O’Donnell wants to rely less on celebrity guests.

“The necessity for celebrity in daytime TV has diminished as access to celebrity has increased 100-fold,” O’Donnell explains. “When I was a kid and Barbra Streisand was on TV, I would stay home from school.”

If the things don’t work out, the show and O’Donnell both have an out. She signed a one-year, multi-million dollar contract, reports Variety.

Co-creator and executive producer Barbara Walters, who retired from the show as a panelist earlier this year, said she’s banking on another successful season. “The View stays fresh and relevant, and Rosie will help keep it so,” she told Variety.

The new season of The View premieres live on Monday, Sept. 15.

Robert Downey Jr. Talks Battle with Drug Addiction and Passing the Struggle to Son

Robert Downey Jr. Talks Battle with Drug Addiction and Passing the Struggle to Son

Noel Vasquez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Robert Downey Jr.’s recovery from drug abuse is about as legendary as his days of addiction.

“For some folks it’s just a function of age,” the Iron Man star told Vanity Fair about overcoming his demons. “It’s perfectly normal for people to be obsessive about something for a period of time, then leave it alone.”

For a time, it didn’t seem like Downey, who had been getting high since he was a kid, would be able to leave it alone. The actor’s drug use spiraled after he made it big in Hollywood. In 1996, police found heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine as well as an unloaded .357 Magnum in his car when he was stopped for speeding. Then, Downey was famously found by his neighbors passed out in their 11-year-old son’s bed.

The actor told Vanity Fair that was “an uncommon occurrence for me. Happened to be a very public one. I was not a guy who blacked out.”

He escaped from rehab twice and, in 1999, was sentenced to 36 months in jail, though he served just under a year. After two more arrests, including the time after he was found wandering the streets of Los Angeles barefoot, Downey again checked into rehab and finally got clean.

“Job one is get out of that cave,” he told Vanity Fair about what he learned from his rehab and prison stints. “A lot of people do get out but don’t change. So the thing is to get out and recognize the significance of that aggressive denial of your fate, come through the crucible forged into a stronger metal. Or whatever. But I don’t even know if that was my experience.”

He continued, “It’s funny: five years ago, I would’ve made it sound like I’m conscious of my own participation in seizing the similarities. But so many things have become less certain. I swear to God. I am not my story.”

Hollywood’s highest paid actor does acknowledge that he likely inherited his addictions and passed them on to his oldest son, Indio Downey, a 20-year-old musician who was recently arrested and charged with drug possession.

“Pick a dysfunction and it’s a family problem,” Downey said.

“He’s his mother’s son and my son, and he’s come up the chasm much quicker than we did,” he told the magazine. “But that’s typical in the Information Age; things get accelerated. You’re confronted with histories and predispositions and influences and feelings and unspoken traumas or needs that weren’t met, and all of a sudden you’re three miles into the woods. Can you help someone get out of those woods? Yes, you can. By not getting lost looking for them.”

Nick Carter’s New Reality Show Premieres Wednesday Night

Nick Carter’s New Reality Show Premieres Wednesday Night

Gabe Ginsberg/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — If you love Nick Carter, you’ll want to tune in to his new reality show, I Heart Nick Carter.

The VH1 series will follow the Backstreet Boy as he prepares to marry his fiancée, Lauren Kitt. He’s the final member of the boy band to take the plunge, and that fact is not lost on him.

Carter explained to ABC News Radio why it’s taken so long for him to walk down the aisle: “Scared of it, didn’t necessarily believe in it. I had seen so many marital tragedies in the industry growing up. Also…as a really young child I was taught that love and family meant everything and whatever and all that stuff and it just kind of shattered.”

Carter isn’t too concerned that he and his fiancée are putting their love on display in a TV show. While couples such as Jessica Simpson-Nick Lachey and Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries divorced after starring on a reality program together, Carter insists they won’t suffer a similar fate.

He says, “I’m like head over heels in love. And I know that she loves me like a lot, like intensely back. And so I feel that love should conquer all.”

Kitt says she’s been on the receiving end of verbal abuse and even death threats from some overzealous fans of Carter’s. But generally speaking, she’s okay with his female admirers — as long as they respect the couple’s privacy.

She says, “When we’re on tour, have at it. That’s what he’s there for. When he’s on stage, he’s all yours ladies. When we’re at home, we’re in a restaurant, when we’re trying to be private taking a walk through a park, that’s ‘me’ time.”

I Heart Nick Carter airs Wednesday night on VH1 at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

Are Taylor Swift and Katy Perry ‘Straight-Up Enemies’

Are Taylor Swift and Katy Perry ‘Straight-Up Enemies’

ABC/Richard Harbaugh / ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — An early morning tweet from Katy Perry has added to speculation of a feud between the “Dark Horse” singer and Taylor Swift.

Perry made a reference to the film Mean Girls in a tweet to her 56.7 million followers.

“Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…” Perry, 29, wrote referring to the Rachel McAdams character who faced off against Lindsay Lohan in the 2004 hit comedy.

The jab appears to refer to Swift’s recent interview with Rolling Stone, in which she opened up about a fellow unnamed artist with whom she is “straight-up enemies.”

“She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’” Swift told the magazine. “(Then last year) she did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy!”

Instead, “it had to do with business,” Swift said. “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational — you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”

Like previous Swift songs, the singer channeled her feelings into “Bad Blood,” a track on her latest album, 1989.

“I’m not the female police — but it broke my heart,” Swift told Rolling Stone. “Because I have such a high priority on girls sticking together.”

Swift is known for her close friendships with her famous BFFs, including Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham, Lorde, Emma Stone, Sarah Hyland and Dianna Agron.

Broadway Will Dim Lights in Honor of Joan Rivers After All

Broadway Will Dim Lights in Honor of Joan Rivers After All

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Broadway will honor Joan Rivers after all.

After initially declining to honor the late comedienne, the Broadway League — that’s the group that represents Broadway theaters and producers — has bowed to pressure to dim the lights on the Great White Way Tuesday evening in Rivers’ honor.

“Joan Rivers loved Broadway and we loved her,” the Broadway League said in a statement provided to ABC News. “Due to the outpouring of love and respect for Joan Rivers from our community and from her friends and fans worldwide, the marquees of Broadway theaters in New York will be dimmed in her memory tonight, at exactly 6:45pm for one minute.”

Jordan Roth, president of the Jujamcyn Theater chain, was already on record saying his theaters would dim their lights in Rivers’ honor.  Jujamcyn Theaters are currently home to four hit Broadway musicals: The Book of Mormon, Jersey Boys, Kinky Boots, and recent Tony winner A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.

Rivers last starred on Broadway in 1994 in her show Sally Marr…and Her Escorts.

Kim Kardashian Talks Having More Kids with Kanye West

Kim Kardashian Talks Having More Kids with Kanye West

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) — Kim Kardashian says she’s ready for more kids with husband Kanye West.

The two welcomed daughter North in June of last year and while she is “obsessed” with the little 1-year-old, she’s not sure how many she’ll have with West.

“I just went to San Diego to give my pregnant sister [Kourtney] a break, I took care of my niece, nephew and my daughter,” she said on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs Tuesday. “To bathe them, all three, feed them, get them in their PJ’s, down for bed, I was literally crying. So hard, three kids.”

Kardashian, 33, said she’ll try two kids at first and go from there. But she’s torn about having just one or two more children. She keeps going back and forth, she said.

“But then again, I have so many siblings and I love it, they are my best friends,” she added. “I want that for my kids.”

She continued, “I don’t think six,” referring to her mother Kris Jenner having six children over her lifetime. “But three, maybe four — I go back and forth.”

Kardashian said one of the things she’s dreading is pregnancy style.

“I had a medically, really tough, challenging pregnancy, but it is so worth it,” she said.
