‘The Masked Singer’ judges fail to guess Lil Wayne, Drew Carey: Let’s keep track of their Season 3 scores
This season on “The Masked Singer,” Gold Derby will be keeping track of all the judges’ scores as the competition progresses — for better or for worse. After two episodes, none of the panelists were able to guess the true identities of the Robot or the Llama, which turned out to be Lil Wayne and Drew Carey, respectively. That means Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger are currently tied at zero points apiece. For the record, guest judges Jamie Foxx (episode one) and Jason Biggs (episode two) also failed to correctly guess either of those celebs.

The Masked Singer” panel was stumped once again during Wednesday’s second episode when none of them correctly guessed “The Price Is Right” host Drew Carey was underneath the Llama mask. The actor and comedian revealed he chose to be a part of the show simply because it looked like a lot of fun. “I like having a goof and a lot of laughs,” he told Nick Cannon in his end-of-show interview. “This is a great show. I had a blast!” Watch his performance of Tom Jones‘ “It’s Not Unusual” above.

‘The Masked Singer’ Reveals the Identity of the Llama: Here’s The Star Under the Mask
Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead, if you have not watched Season 3, Episode 2 of “The Masked Singer,” which aired Feb. 5 on Fox.

Drew Carey, come on down! You’re the next contestant to be eliminated… on “The Masked Singer.”

The comedian and “The Price is Right” host became the second celebrity to be unmasked on Season 3 of “The Masked Singer,” following Sunday’s reveal of hip-hop star Lil Wayne. Carey was dressed as the Llama, and was voted off despite a rousing rendition of Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual” on Wednesday night’s show.

“I thought it was going to be a quick ride,” Carey told Variety. “After I got past the first round, everything else was gravy… I like to carry a tune. I knew I wasn’t going to win that contest. There’s no way to watch that show and take it seriously, really. When you

Adam Sandler Drama ‘Uncut Gems’ Sets A24 Record With $105,000 Per Screen Opening
Uncut Gems” has set a new limited opening record at the indie box office for A24. The critically acclaimed crime drama starring Adam Sandler was released in five theaters this weekend and grossed $525,498 for a per screen average of $105,100.

That average tops the previous A24 record of $100,500 set by Best Picture winner “Moonlight” in October 2016. It’s also the second highest average of the year behind only “Parasite” with $131,072. “Uncut Gems” entered theaters after a wave of awards nominations from the Film Independent Spirit Awards, Gotham Awards, and National Board of Review, among others.

Directed by the Safdie Brothers, “Uncut Gems” stars Sandler as Howard Ratner, an eccentric and extroverted New York City jeweler whose gambling addiction leads him into a high-wire act balancing business, family and a growing set of enemies. Julia Fox, Kevin Garnett, Lakeith Stanfield and Idina Menzel also star in the film, which has an A-

Film Review: ‘No Safe Spaces’

Film Review: ‘No Safe Spaces’
If, like me, you’re an absolutist about the right to free speech, not just the legal letter of it but the stubborn spirit of it, then when you watch “No Safe Spaces,” a documentary about the crackdown on free expression that’s now taking place on American college campuses, you’ll find yourself, at least momentarily, in the company of some rather dicey “comrades.” People like the toxic fire-breather Ann Coulter, the everything-through-the-eye-of-the-Israel-needle right-wing ideologue Ben Shapiro, and — in a famously controversial and unsavory case — the loathsome alt-right showboat nihilist Milo Yiannopoulos.

All three of these moral reptiles, at different points, were invited to speak at public institutions of higher learning that wound up rescinding the invitations, due to pressure from their student bodies. And yet if you’re a religious believer in the First Amendment, then in “No Safe Spaces” people like Coulter and Shapiro become the de facto “good guys.

The Real Story of Carroll Shelby in Trailer for 'Shelby American' Doc

"You'd better win." Chassy Media has debuted an official trailer for an indie documentary titled Shelby American, the latest from racing doc directors Nate Adams & Adam Carolla. The film profiles the life and times of notorious race car driver, engineer, designer, coach and expert Carroll Shelby - the same guy played by Matt Damon in the Ford v Ferrari movie this year. Carroll Shelby came from humble beginnings working as a chicken farmer in rural Texas. He exploded into the auto-racing scene by beating all the top-tier drivers of the era and winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959. All while still wearing his chicken-overalls. He launched his company Shelby American after that, which lead him to meet Henry Ford II. The rest is history. For any and all racing fans, this seems like a must see. Or for anyone who wants more after ...

Deadpool Star Says That A Third Film Is Unnecessary

The other day, we brought you the news that Deadpool actor and controversial comedian T.J. Miller (who plays Weasel) said he wasn’t 100% into doing a third movie. Despite him admitting that he didn’t feel the series needed another sequel after Deadpool 2, he said he’d do it anyway.

Now, though, it appears that he’s gone one step further and has said that Deadpool 3 is not only “unnecessary,” but he also worries that the franchise could have the same fate as the Hangover trilogy. In an interview with Adam Carolla, Miller stated that he believes Marvel should put more focus on Deadpool spinoffs – such as X-Force – rather than another sequel in the Merc’s standalone series.

He went on to say that “because they’re doing X-Force, they haven’t decided if they want to do Deadpool 3. And to be honest, I almost would rather they didn’t.

‘The Lighthouse,’ ‘Parasite,’ and ‘Jojo Rabbit’ Thrive at the Box Office; IMAX Experiments With ‘Jesus Is King’

‘The Lighthouse,’ ‘Parasite,’ and ‘Jojo Rabbit’ Thrive at the Box Office; IMAX Experiments With ‘Jesus Is King’
The fall specialty box office continues strong as recent openers expand to more theaters. “The Lighthouse” (A24) lead the way by jumping to more than 500 screens as “Jojo Rabbit” (Fox Searchlight) and “Parasite” (Neon) continue to perform above expectations. And two holdovers from Roadside Attractions passed the $20 million mark this weekend near the top of the specialty charts: “The Peanut Butter Falcon” and “Judy.”

But the experimental IMAX release of Kanye West’s short “Jesus Is King” (IMAX) and the Fathom Events-previewed Bruce Springsteen’s “Western Stars” (Warner Bros.) yielded lackluster results. While IMAX is pushing such alternate content onto its big screens, both films might have made more sense as streaming presentations. Meantime, “No Safe Spaces” (Atlas), a documentary featuring prominent conservative voices Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla, scored a stunning $45,000 at a single Phoenix theater.

‘Synonyms’ And Kanye West’s ‘Jesus Is King’ Have Solid Premieres, ‘Frankie’ Debuts Soft – Specialty Box Office
Nadav Lapid’s Synonyms found the right words this weekend to have a solid opening in two locations, bringing in an estimated $19,070. The acclaimed French-Israeli film about cultural identity played to sold-out screenings in New York, setting itself up for a nationwide expansion to Los Angeles, Toronto, Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland, with more expected in the coming weeks.

Kanye West wanted to bring his “Sunday Service” brand to the masses, and as expected, he went big to match his personality. His 35-minute documentary short Jesus Is King premiered this weekend with 372 runs in 134 markets, landing in the top 10 on Friday in limited runs. The companion piece to his Christian-themed album of the same name is said to be an immersive experience and “an expression of the gospel.” It gives people a chance to see Sunday Service and take a look at James Turrell’s art exhibit,

SNL: Chance the Rapper Name-Checks Angel and Buffy in Monologue Rap
In an ode to also-rans everywhere, Chance the Rapper spent this week’s Saturday Night Live monologue extolling the virtues of the second-best things, people and places in life.

The exuberant song was spurred by the fact that it was his second time hosting the late-night sketch show (and the first pulling double-duty as both host and musical guest). “To honor my hometown, I’m going to do a song about Chicago, the Second City,” he announced at the top of the show. What followed was a tune that paid homage to Pepsi, Adam Carolla, Redbox and Bing, as well

Ira Sachs’ ‘Frankie’ Debuts; French-Israeli Drama ‘Synonyms’ Premieres Stateside – Specialty B.O. Preview

  • Deadline
After a strong opening for Pain and Glory, Sony Pictures Classics will throw another title into the Specialty box office mix this weekend with the Ira Sachs drama Frankie starring Isabelle Huppert. The actress is certainly a draw when it comes to prestigious awards and there’s hope that her name will bring in audiences to see Frankie. The film joins the Specialty race after Parasite and Jojo Rabbit hit the ground running. Frankie looks as though it will be a good palate cleanser after two straight weekends of bold, genre-driven films.

The French-Israeli film Synonyms from Nadav Lapid will make its American debut in theaters this weekend, with its gripping tale about cultural identity. On the opposite end of Synonyms’ drama, we have the vibrant comedy Housefull 4, which is looking to make a global splash (Bollywood films usually do) while the re-release of 2000’s

Dennis Prager, Adam Carolla Free Speech Doc Aims to Get Wider Release
Capitalizing on the controversy swirling around China, which censors the internet and Hollywood movies, a documentary film from comedian Adam Carolla and talk show host Dennis Prager that tackles free speech is beefing up its theatrical distribution plans.

On Monday, The Hollywood Reporter obtained two exclusive clips from the movie, called No Safe Spaces, that directly take on China. They are a couple of risky scenes, given China-owned AMC Entertainment is set to exhibit the film in several of its theaters early in the film’s distribution pattern.

During Wednesday’s episode of “The Masked Singer” Season 2, Dr. Drew Pinsky was revealed to be hiding behind the Eagle mask.

Pinsky’s Eagle, who initially sang Meatloaf’s “I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” was knocked out of the sky by The Flower. Ironically, Eagle was permanently grounded by flightless bird The Penguin, who won the “smackdown” survival round.

The Masked Singer Recap: What Does the Fox Sing? Plus — An Unmasking Ruffles Jenny's Feathers!
If you use the term “celebrity” as loosely as The Masked Singer seems to, there are roughly three zillion people who could be underneath the Season 2 competitors’ masks. And yet I already find myself doubling a couple of my guesses about the players’ identities, even though we’re only three episodes into this go-around.

As you move through this week’s recap, you’ll see what I mean. In my defense, the judges’ panel — Nicole Scherzinger, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, Robin Thicke and Ken Jeong — threw out some truly terrible ideas during the hour. (Guys, guys… it’s Not Jamie Foxx!

If you think you’ve already met all of “The Masked Singer” contestants for Season 2, you’re sadly mistaken. Wednesday’s fourth hour introduced America to the last group of costumed characters: Eagle, Flower, Fox and Penguin. These four singers faced off in two separate match-ups, with the winner of each pairing determined by the votes of the in-studio audience and judges Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke. The two lowest vote-getters then duked it out in the Smackdown, with one surviving to another day and the other being unmasked in front of America. So how’d it all play out?
