Et Obsessions: 'Boy Band,' Imagine Dragons's 'Evolve' Album, and 'Transformers: The Last Knight'
Here at Et, we're obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of June 19 to June 25, this is what we're most excited about:

Why We're Obsessed With 'Boy Band'

While NBC's America's Got Talent has been bringing us solid rounds of auditions, ABC is about to launch their own singing competition with Boy Band. That's right, the twist: Male vocalists battle it out for one of 18 spots in three boy bands to be the next music-group sensation. We have high hopes for this show with Rita Ora as the host, and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton, Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter and rapper Timbaland making up the judging panel. The 10-episode show, created by the team behind Lip Sync Battle, will commence with Carter and Bunton mixing contestants around while viewers will be able to vote to find the best vocal combinations .

‘Sausage Party’: Why Seth Rogen’s R-Rated Animated Comedy Was Long Overdue

‘Sausage Party’: Why Seth Rogen’s R-Rated Animated Comedy Was Long Overdue
Sausage Party” may be a film about a hotdog that wants to have sex with a bun, but it still represents a watershed moment for Hollywood. The raunchy comedy that’s grossed $65 million after two weeks in theaters is the first R-rated CG animated movie. Co-written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, “Sausage Party” has sex, violence and curse words in a format that has always been reserved for family-friendly fare.

The movie features the voices of comedic stars like Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, James Franco and Paul Rudd playing anthropomorphized food items who discover their only reason for existing is to be eaten by humans. Directors Conrad Vernon (“Monsters vs. Aliens”) and Greg Tiernan (TV’s “Thomas & Friends”) have backgrounds in traditional animation aimed at children, but there’s nothing traditional about this deranged dark comedy.

Seth Rogen Says He Felt ‘Betrayed’ After Katherine Heigl’s Disparaging ‘Knocked Up’ Comments

Seth Rogen Says He Felt ‘Betrayed’ After Katherine Heigl’s Disparaging ‘Knocked Up’ Comments
Back in 2007, Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl starred in Judd Apatow’s hit comedy “Knocked Up.” The film was well received and became a modern comedy classic, but Heigl quickly seemed to have second thoughts about it. She revealed in a 2008 interview with Vanity Fair that she didn’t like the way she was portrayed in the film and how it “paints the women as shrews,” while the men look “lovable,” further adding that “it was hard for me to love the movie.”

In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Rogen addressed the long-time feud and said that he was surprised by Heigl’s reaction, because he says their time on set was great and there were never any problems.

“I thought she hated us,” Seth told Stern. “We made a movie, I was very proud of it, it was critically very well received. Then we just heard that she

‘Sausage Party’: Seth Rogen Reveals What Had To Be Cut To Avoid Nc-17 Rating

‘Sausage Party’: Seth Rogen Reveals What Had To Be Cut To Avoid Nc-17 Rating
Seth Rogen’s dark comedy “Sausage Party” hits theaters this weekend. The animated film tells the story of grocery store food finding out what happens to them in the real world where they are chopped up, boiled and cooked so they can be eaten by people. The film is rated R but it was first categorized as Nc-17 by the MPAA because of an eight-minute food orgy scene.

Rogen sat down with Howard Stern to discuss the film and what he had to cut to get the rating he wanted.

“There is a very sexually charged scene in the film, there is a pita bread with a scrotum,” he told Stern, adding that the lunch meat were involved in an orgy. “We probably added six things into the orgy that we were like, ‘Ok, these are like our sacrificial lambs.’”

Surprised by how little they wanted changed, he explained how

14 rumours about the troubled Ghostbusters reboot production

Luke Owen sifts through the rumours…

We’re only a few days away from Paul Feig’s reboot of Ghostbusters arriving in cinemas, and there has certainly been a lot said about it already. From its first trailer confusing the message, to people rejecting the idea of a female Slimer, Ghostbusters is going to have to try really hard to win round the haters. But while certain members of the cast and the film’s director are positive, it might not be all sunshine at Sony.

Since it went into production last year, there have been a lot of rumours about a troubled production on sites like 4Chan and Reddit from those claiming to be either involved or close to the film. I decided to go through each one, and add in my own two cents into what could have happened behind the scenes.

As we do with all our rumours here at Flickering Myth,

Gender matters in Australian film and equality can't come soon enough | Stephanie Van Schilt

The Glass Ceiling, The Confidence Gap and Imposter Syndrome all sound like high-concept movies, but they’re a daily reality for women in Australian film

On Monday morning, we woke up to the news that gender matters – at least to Screen Australia, which has launched a scheme of the same name dedicating $5m to developing and promoting professional opportunities for women working in the Australian film industry over the next three years.

“This is a targeted and practical plan to combat gender inequality in our industry, starting from now,” Screen Australia deputy chair Deanne Weir said.

Full preview for WWE Summerslam – John Cena vs. Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker, Arrow’s Stephen Amell and more

Airing this Sunday on PPV and the WWE Network, here’s the full preview for WWE Summerslam – hosted by Jon Stewart.

Ryback vs. The Big Show vs. The Miz for the WWE Intercontinental Championship

This will likely be the weakest match on the card. Ryback has been great as of late, but he’s going against a lumbering Big Show and a Miz who has been portrayed as a geek for the last year. Bear in mind, Ryback beat The Miz on last week’s Raw in 2-minutes. How can anyone take him as a title challenger seriously? Having said that, I expect Miz to pick up the win here. This won’t be pretty, but it probably won’t be very long either.

The Wyatts vs. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose

This should be an insane amount of fun. Remember when The Wyatts faced The Shield a few years ago?

Sinister Six, Venom, Female-Led Spidey Spinoff Still Alive At Sony

A few days ago, we’d have said that Marvel would have to move heaven and earth to convince Sony to let Spider-Man play in its cinematic sandbox, so now that such a deal has finally come to fruition, it only follows that there are some fascinating details to parse out, both about the financial and logistical aspects of the webslinger’s future.

A new report delineates the specifics of Marvel and Sony’s arrangement, which involves far less money changing hands that one might have suspected. Marvel did not have to pay to snag Spider-Man for Captain America: Civil War and (almost certainly) Avengers: Infinity War – Parts 1 & 2. However, the studio is also not expected to receive any of the box office from future Spider-Man movies, and similarly, Sony will not get a cut of the profits from any Marvel titles featuring the wall-crawler. Both studios signed the deal confident

Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Infinity War?

Anyone who’s been on the internet over the last few months has seen the countless rumors swirling about the future of Spider-Man on film. Thanks to the disappointing reception of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the flood of leaked internal documents from the very public Sony hack, we’ve heard everything from a proposed Aunt May solo film, an all-female team-up dubbed “Glass Ceiling,” a “soft reboot” of the property within the Sinister Six film, and potential crossover with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Last we heard, Sony and Marvel were nearing some kind of deal that would either give the latter studio the rights back to the character, or allow the wall crawler to exist within both the McU and his own solo films made by Sony. Sony was expected to hold some kind of “Spidey Summit” this month, and now it seems that things might be coming together.

Marvelous DA7E 71: Aunt May Redux, Inhumans Make TV

Welcome To Issue 71!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation. Dr. Strange director Scott Derrickson thinks I'm a F*cktard. Sony probably isn't too psyched with me either right now.

This Week: Let's elaborate more on that Aunt May thing. Then, Did You See Attilan On TV Last Night?!?!?!

I guess the best place to start would be with this week’s Aunt May story, namely that Sony is developing an Aunt May solo movie, or that’s what I said. Because Comic Book Resources reached out to their source and got a denial:

When reached by Cbr News, a source within Sony stated that the report of a Spider-Man spinoff starring a young Aunt May is a “silly rumor” with “no validity whatsoever.”

Now, it’s a battle of the unnamed sources, although

Is Sony Planning An Aunt May Spider-Man Spinoff?

If you thought that Sony’s plans for the flailing Amazing Spider-Man franchise were crazy before, I suggest you buckle up because this new development is quite a doozy. We know that Sony is still reeling from the disappointment that was The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and that the studio’s plans for the future of the series are uncertain. The planned Sinister Six and Venom spin-offs are spinning their wheels, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been delayed until an unspecified date in 2018, there’s been talk of doing a “soft reboot” of the character through Sinister Six (if that movie even happens), there’s talk of bringing Gwen Stacy back, and the proposed female-led spin-off film, dubbed Glass Ceiling, is a head-scratcher.

The one thing that all of those films have in common, however, is that they at least feature superpowered characters within the Spider-Man universe who could, with the right approach,

Spider-Man's Aunt May Gets A Spin-Off?

It's known that Sony Pictures isn't sure of what to do next with its "Spider-Man" franchise. Yes "Sinister Six" and "Venom" are planned, but for now it seems various ideas and possibilities are being floated about.

There also seems to be a push to give female characters in this universe their time in the sun, with the rumor the other week being of a spin-off codenamed "Glass Ceiling" involving several female "Spider-Man" characters teaming up.

This week's rumor though tops that in terms of sheer unexpected craziness. Latino Review reports that the studio is looking to do a spin-off film about Aunt May, yes Peter Parker's aunt.

According to the site, the project essentially sounds like Sony's attempt at an "Agent Carter" style scenario with a young May Parker caught up in a "Mad Men"-era espionage story.

At present, "Sinister Six" is the next actual film coming from the

Rumor: Sony Pictures Wants Aunt May Spin-Off Without Spider-Man

If anyone thought that Sony Pictures still had the ability to save The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, you may want to sit down for this. It's no secret that the studio has been struggling with The Amazing Spider-Man as the comic book movie series hasn't been nearly as successful as they hoped. Is it fatigue with Spider-Man, or has Sony just not done anything good enough for fans who have seen what Marvel Studios can do with their superheroes? It's tough to say definitively, but an idea that's being developed at the studio proves that they have absolutely no idea what they're going to do with the property beyond Spider-Man. There have been rumblings of a female-led Spider-Man universe movie (the latest includes a team-up of female Spider-Man universe characters codenamed Glass Ceiling), but Latino Review has heard that Sony Pictures has been developing a movie focused on Aunt May (recently

Spider-Man Might Weirdly Give This Side Character Her Own Movie

Exclusive: Sony's Now Working on a Spider-Man-Less Aunt May Movie

Here comes Trouble, and I might mean that literally.

It’s been obvious from the various and absolutely crazy rumors about upcoming Spider-Man movies that Sony is struggling to find a direction for the franchise and the crazier the rumors get the more it seems like they’d rather milk the property from every single angle rather than give the main character back to Marvel. What started as rumors of villain-centric series, The Sinister Six and Venom, has been transformed by the increasing chorus of disappointed sighs from Amazing Spider-Man 2 to Venom: Carnage and “a female lead Spider-Man movie” that might be a crazy movie codenamed Glass Ceiling that features female Spider-Man Universe characters that have never been team-up before in history, let alone on screen.

Now, it’s my solemn duty to put another wild Sony thrashing Spider-Movie on the pile of rumored Spider-Man movies. I was
