Entertainment Link-Off: A World Beyond

Anna-Kendrick-EsquireMemorial Day weekend in the States usually means the studios pull out all the big guns at the box office as their big tentpole films duke it out over the 4 days. As of right now, Disney’s Tomorrowland and Universal’s Pitch Perfect 2 are fighting for first place. Well, let’s start off the ELO with Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick as she sticks it to the rest of the competition.

After the jump, farewell to the Late Show with David Letterman, apparently Maggie Gyllenhaal is too old, Taylor Swift broke the internet, carpool karaoke with Justin Bieber and the Game of Thrones 12 minute musical is here!

This past week just marked the last episode of The Late Show with David Letterman. As expected with any finale, it was loaded with celebrity guests and it was also full of heart and humour. Watch the last episode here. (CBS)

And that’s showbiz folks! Just a day after the last Late Show, they have already torn down the set and have tossed most things into the trash. (Zap2it)

There are plenty of things wrong with Hollywood and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s case just highlighted one recently. At the age of 37, she is now considered too old to play a love interest to a man who is… wait for it… 55! Who knew! (The Wrap)

Heroes Reborn is drawing more characters from the original series as Greg Grunberg has agreed to appear in a recurring arc in the revived series. (Entertainment Weekly)

The Full House spinoff/reboot or whatever you call it will be a lot less… umm… fuller now that the Olsen twins have opted not to take part in the revived series. (THR)

Lionsgate has dumped the Power Rangers movie into a January 2017 release. It doesn’t seem to show a vote of confidence here does it? (Slashfilm)

Michael B Jordan addresses the race controversy surrounding his casting in the new Fantastic Four movie. (Entertainment Weekly)

Pitch Perfect 2 sure acted as a nice stepping stone for Hailee Steinfeld as she lands herself a record deal! (Mashable)

Taylor Swift just broke Vevo’s world record by snatching 20+ million views in 24 hours for her star-studded video Bad Blood. (Daily Mail)

Finally a first look at Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. September can’t come soon enough!

This looks like fun. Watch Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson take on children zombies in Cooties.

James Cordon may have done the impossible. He actually made Justin Bieber seem likeable in his latest Carpool Karaoke.

Honest trailer for Jupiter Ascending. Yes it was a very bad movie.

Here’s a fun little mashup of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Mad Max: Fury Road.

Here’s a tease of the Game of Thrones musical as Peter Dinklage sings about his character still alive and kicking in the series where no one is truly safe.

Oh what the heck, just watch the full 12 minute version here. Yes, I spoke too soon when I said GoT would not give Emilia Clarke a chance to belt out a tune for the show last week.

Just for Red Nose Day, how about a reboot of Indiana Jones featuring Anna Kendrick?
