<![CDATA[NBC 6 South Florida - TV, movies, music and celebrity news]]> Copyright 2015 http://www.nbcmiami.com/entertainment/entertainment-news http://media.nbcbayarea.com/designimages/NBC+6+LOGO+GOOGLE.png NBC 6 South Florida http://www.nbcmiami.com en-us Wed, 01 Jul 2015 02:42:02 -0400 Wed, 01 Jul 2015 02:42:02 -0400 NBC Owned Television Stations <![CDATA[Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'Terminator' Rebirth]]> Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:49:18 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/TR-04487R.jpg

When Arnold Schwarzenegger uttered "I'll be back" in 1984's "The Terminator," the instant-classic line – part threat, part vow from his cyborg assassin character – added up to a declaration of superstardom that the actor made good on, film after film, for a decade-plus.

Now Schwarzenegger’s once-vaunted movie career, waylaid by a seven-year stretch as governor of California and a string of unmemorable recent film appearances, hinges on audiences, young and otherwise, caring whether he lives up to his first and fiercest signature phrase.

Schwarzenegger returns Wednesday in "Terminator Genisys" with hopes for a professional rebirth as he approaches 68, a couple decades past his box office glory years. His test: whether simply coming back will yield a major comeback.

For a man always on the move, Schwarzenegger has been forced to learn patience. His career proved anything but an overnight success: The young body builder's thick Teutonic accent was overdubbed in his 1969 debut, the low-budget “Hercules in New York,” a forgetable film most notable for the nasal twang of his scrawny co-star, character actor Arnold Stang.

It took until 1977 for Schwarzenegger's real voice, potential star power and, above all, determination, to burst through in the bodybuilding documentary “Pumping Iron.” His 1982 turn in “Conan the Barbarian” packed both fanboy and camp appeal. Schwarzenegger was pushing 40 when “The Terminator” made him a box office Midas who would go on to touch in the likes of “Total Recall,” “True Lies” and the underrated “Last Action Hero.”

Still, he constantly varied his shtick, showing a talent for comedy in “Kindergarten Cop” and “Twins,” as well as in stints as a reliably witty “Tonight Show” guest. He married into the liberal Kennedy family and became the Republican governor of the nation’s most populous state.

Even as the Austrian immigrant lived the American story of reinvention, the action hero reputation clung to him. As he returns for the latest “Terminator” installment, his first non-cameo appearance in the series in a dozen years, Schwarzenegger enters a brave new world of celebrity – post politics, post tabloid friendly divorce, post a recent string of less-than-triumphant movie roles, including gigs in Sylvester Stallone's fun and fluffy “Expendables” flicks.

Schwarzenegger’s bid to reclaim his role as a bankable action star comes in a summer brimming with reboots of films from his prime moviemaking years. New installments in the “Mad Max” and “Jurassic Park” franchises are hits, while the “Poltergeist” remake quickly crawled back into the graveyard.

None of those new movies, though, relied on original stars. The return of Schwarzenegger’s “Terminator” character could be a steel stalking horse for Harrison Ford, who will be 73 by the time “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens in December, and perhaps for Tom Cruise, who reportedly is mulling starring in a sequel to “Top Gun,” the top grossing movie of 1986.

Schwarzenegger is smart enough to peg his comeback to a compelling movie series that’s about far more than its most famous star. The “Terminator” grip rests in turning time and expectations on their heads. That’s also the Arnold Schwarzenegger story, whose latest chapter unfolds Wednesday.

<![CDATA[Movie Star Walrus Dies at 21]]> Tue, 30 Jun 2015 09:34:06 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/180*120/Sivuqaq.jpg

A Six Flags Discovery Kingdom walrus who starred in popular movies passed away on Sunday.

Sivuqaq was taken in by the park in 1994 with three other orphaned walrus calves. All four made their debut together in spring of 1995 at the Walrus Experience.

“Words cannot describe the loss we feel,” said Dianne Cameron, marine mammal manager. “We are grateful to have shared his life with him. He touched many people and was loved enormously.”

Sivuqaq also appeared in the 2004 feature film “50 First Dates” as “Jocko” the walrus.

He was also the voice for various creature characters in “Lord of the Rings”, “The Hobbit” and “Jurassic Park."

The park reports that “Sivuqaq demonstrated an intelligence that scientists could not have known about walruses, and hence, he contributed greatly to scientific study of Pacific walruses, one of the least-known and least-studied marine mammals in the world.”

At 21, the male Pacific walrus died from heart failure.

<![CDATA[Enrique Iglesias Charged in Miami-Dade Traffic Stop]]> Tue, 30 Jun 2015 11:13:22 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/062915+enrique+iglesias.jpg

Singer Enrique Iglesias is facing misdemeanor charges of obstruction and driving with a suspended license following a traffic stop in Miami-Dade County last month, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.

According to the FHP, on May 6, Iglesias was pulled over in a Cadillac Escalade after a trooper spotted the SUV driving northbound on Interstate 95 in the closed express lanes.

As the trooper pulled the Escalade over, Iglesias jumped from the driver's seat into the back and the passenger got into the driver's seat, according to an FHP arrest affidavit. Iglesias then climbed into the passenger seat, the report said.

"It was Mr. Iglesias that was the initial driver, yes," FHP Lt. Julio Pajon said.

Iglesias and the passenger, identified as Abel Tabuyo, were handcuffed, and Iglesias invoked his Miranda rights, the report said. Tabuyo said he didn't know why he switched seats with Iglesias, the report said.

Iglesias and Tabuyo, who was also charged with obstruction without violence, were released after signing notices to appear in court. Both entered not guilty pleas and Iglesias' next court date was set for July 10.

NBC 6 reached out to Iglesias' attorney and is awaiting an official comment.

The alleged incident happened just a few weeks before the 40-year-old Iglesias badly injured his hand after grabbing a drone at a concert in Tijuana, Mexico. He later underwent reconstructive hand surgery in Los Angeles.

Rapper The Game pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges that he hit and threatened an off-duty LAPD officer during a basketball game in Hollywood.

The Game, or Jayceon Terrell Taylor, allegedly confronted the officer when the two were on opposing teams at a basketball game at Hollywood High School in March, according to the LA County District Attorney's Office.

After the 35-year-old rapper, a Los Angeles native, was accused of "committing a hard foul," he allegedly confronted the off-duty officer, struck him and later threatened to kill him, prosecutors said.

Taylor is charged with one felony count of making criminal threats and one misdemeanor count of assault and battery. He faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

The court appearance comes in the wake of a judge's order that Taylor pay over $200,000 to his children's former nanny in an Instagram-related libel case.

Taylor's representatives did not immediately respond to NBC4's requests for comment. He is due back in court July 30.

<![CDATA[Emilia Clarke Hints 'GoT' Character May Return]]> Mon, 29 Jun 2015 12:06:54 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-119552808.jpg

"Game of Thrones" fans devastated by the season finale’s killing of Jon Snow may have gotten their first glimmer of hope that maybe, just maybe, Snow will return some day.

In an interview with MTV News, Emilia Clarke, who plays the role of Daenerys Targaryen, reaffirmed that she really doesn’t know what the future holds for Snow, but hints that there’s a chance Snow and actor Kit Harrington could come back. 

“I can with all honesty say I have no idea what’s happening,” Clarke said. But when asked if she had to take a wild guess, Clarke said, “I mean if I had to bet, I’d say it’s like a 50/50 chance.

Clarke noted that there are characters on the show that could help ressurect the Watch Commander, including Melisandre, who conveniently arrived at Castle Black as the hero was stabbed.

Clarke added that the show’s producers know she can’t lie very well, so the news should be taken with some caution.

Still, it may be enough to build up anticipation for a possible return of Snow sometime in the future.

<![CDATA[Katy Perry, Nuns in Uproar Over Convent Sale]]> Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:32:32 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/463035626.jpg

A former convent in the hills above Los Angeles is at the center of a real estate dispute involving pop star Katy Perry, the archbishop of Los Angeles and a group of nuns.

The legal fireworks are about who has the right to sell the nuns' former convent in Los Feliz to the "Roar" singer, whose recent $14.5 million offer for the 8-acre property assessed at $13 million was accepted by the archdiocese.

But the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary said it's not the archdiocese's property to sell. They already reached a deal two weeks ago with Los Angeles restaurant-nightclub owner Dana Hollister for about $15.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The archdiocese, which said the deed to the property reflects a value of $10 million, is now attempting to block that sale. The Archdiocese has taken civil action against Hollister because the transaction "lacks the required approval from the Archdiocese and the Holy See, and does not provide a solution for the House of Prayer which is on the property," according to a statement from the archdiocese.

"God help us, we are going to fight this," Sister Rita Callanan said in an interview with TODAY.

The archdiocese claims in its statement that the alternative transaction, "supported by the majority of the sisters," includes property for a House of Prayer to be owned by the sisters.

Immaculate Heart sisters told the Times they met with Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez before the sale to Hollister. At the time, the sisters only knew that someone famous wanted to enter a deal with the archdiocese, they told the Times.

Once they found out it was Perry, they did some research into her music, videos and onstage performances.

"I didn't know who she was," Sister Callanan said of Perry. "I was particularly concerned about the video, the 'Dark Horse.'"

More than 50 sisters used to live in the convent, now only a handful remain after the archdiocese moved many to other locations.

Perry's parents still have a ministry in Southern California, and she grew up singing gospel music. In an effort to win their favor, Perry even met personally with the sisters earlier this year and performed a song -- "Oh Happy Day" from the movie "Sister Act 2," starring Whoopi Goldberg.

She made a fairly good impression, the sisters told the Times, but Hollister's offer was accepted by the nuns. She already moved into the villa-style home that offers sweeping views of Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley to the east, according to the Times.

The archdiocese has refused to back down and obtained a court order that allowed Perry to visit the property with an architect, according to the Times.

"We've already entered and accepted the offer from Ms. Perry," said Monica Valencia, of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. "The Archbishop has made a promise to care for the sisters, and we want to do what's best for them."

Wednesday evening gives earlybirds the annual chance check out a slightly less crowded convention floor and to take in screenings of the latest network television offerings, including "Supergirl" (CBS), "Lucifer" (Fox) and "Blindspot" (NBC).

Thursday, the first full day of events and programming, will have William Shatner read from the novel "The Autobiography of James T. Kirk"; the "Peanuts" 65th Anniversary Panel; the latest information on "Street Fighter V" game; a final look at the "Hunger Games" movie franchise when "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2" panel hits Hall H (the biggest convention venue); Peter Capaldi–the new "Doctor Who" lead–makes his Comic-Con debut; 1960s marionettes get a CGI update in the new "Thunderbirds Are Go" series reveal; and Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will be on hand for the world premiere of the new film "Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery!"

Friday sees the return to Comic-Con of "The Walking Dead" with cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, Sonequa Martin-Green in attendance. Also from the zombie realm, Friday features the debut of the AMC spin-off series "Fear the Walking Dead." ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) will celebrate 40 years of behind-the-scenes magic-making, ahead of the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"/Lucasfilm panel featuring director J.J. Abrams, studio president Kathleen Kennedy and no doubt some very special secret guests. Fans of a galaxy far, far away better be prepared to queue patiently for a long, long time to get into this presentation.

Also on Friday is the "Game of Thrones" panel moderated by "Late Night's" Seth Meyers; the 50th anniversary celebration panel for "Lost in Space"; a glimpse at the new USA series "Colony"; the return of cult BBC America series "Orphan Black"; and the biting comedy of "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!" with stars Ian Ziering, Tara Reid and David Hasselhoff.
