HOBBIT-BILLY-BOYD

When it came to finally bid farewell to Middle-earth after 16 years and six epic films, Peter Jackson gave the last word to one of the original members of the Fellowship. Billy Boyd, who portrayed loyal hobbit Pippin in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, collaborated with Jackson, Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens to write “The Last Goodbye,” the song that will play over the credits when The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens on Dec. 17.

“We had to get the song just right, to send the audience out of the movie theater in the most perfect way we could,” says Boyd, in an e-mail. “But I don’t think it was until I was sitting on the long flight down to New Zealand that I started to really think about what the song would be. Luckily all the Middle-earth movies were on the flight so I could remind myself of them as I flew south.”

If you thought the ballad stirred some powerful goosebump emotions when it debuted online last week, you haven’t got a prayer this morning. EW has the exclusive music video for the franchise-capping song, and it includes Boyd’s performance, mixed with classic scenes from the series and touching behind-the-scenes footage of your favorite characters. This is the moment when you suddenly panic that the amazing journey is really coming to an end.   READ FULL STORY

10 Things You Need to Know About 'Pitch Perfect 2'

EW’s latest cover is an all-access, exclusive peek behind the scenes of next summer’s highly anticipated musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2. The movie takes place 3 years after the first film, with the Barden Bellas ruling the collegiate a cappella world. But then something happens. “They are prohibited—and I won’t say why—from competing at the collegiate level,” says director Elizabeth Banks, who produced the original and appears again as judge Gail. “So they are sort of forced to enter a professional world competition in order to be reinstated.” Here’s what else you need to know about PP2.

We haven’t yet had the pleasure of seeing Why Don’t You Play In Hell?, the new movie from Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono whose theatrical release is currently expanding around the country. However, the project’s synopsis is certainly intriguing:

Guardians of the Galaxy hits Blu-ray on Dec. 9. To whet your appetite, EW is excited to share an exclusive deleted scene from this summer’s rock-and-roll space adventure. Originally meant to appear early in the movie, the scene takes a closer look at the sibling rivalry between Zoe Saldana’s eventually heroic Gamora and Karen Gillan’s generally villainous Nebula.

Guardians director James Gunn told EW yesterday that he’d like to see more Nebula in the Guardians sequel, so consider this deleted scene a possible preview of future sister strife. READ FULL STORY

See the poster for Anne Hathaway's 'Song One'

In Song One, Anne Hathaway plays Franny, an academic whose research in North Africa is cut short by an emergency phone call from home: her younger brother Henry has been hit by a car and is in a coma.

Henry was an aspiring Brooklyn musician, a career development that had soured the siblings’ relationship. But as she and her mother (Mary Steenburgen) reconnect around his hospital bed, she also gains a greater appreciation for her brother’s commitment to music from the songs he left behind. She visits the clubs he frequented, and when the opportunity presents itself, she approaches her brother’s favorite singer, James Forrester (Johnny Flynn), with a recording of one of her brother’s songs.

Serene and guarded, James is suffering in his own way. A wave of early success has left him paralyzed creatively, but his connection with Franny and her family sparks a healing relationship for both of them.

Flynn was cast perfectly as James, a folksy musician from England who’s a star in Brooklyn’s hip rock-folk scene. Flynn has released four albums, including Country Mile in 2013, and he’d already performed in Brooklyn clubs like Pete’s Candy Store before ever being cast in Song One. “When I read the script, I was like, ‘Oh, in some ways, this is almost my experience of New York,’” says Flynn.

The film is written and directed by Kate Barker-Froyland, who met Hathaway on the set of The Devil Wears Prada, where she was director David Frankel’s assistant. Song One debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and is the first film Hathaway has produced with her husband, Adam Shulman. Film Arcade is releasing the film in theaters and on-demand on Jan. 23.

Pop-culture seems covered in J.M. Barrie’s fairy dust right now, what with NBC’s live stage-musical of Peter Pan scheduled for Dec. 4.

'Mean Girls' reunion: Could there be a sequel -- and which stars would be up for it?

It’s been a decade since Mean Girls was released, but affection for the film only seems to get stronger with each passing year. Tina Fey has already announced that a stage musical is in development—but could the Plastics ever team up for another big-screen outing? (Paramount did release a straight-to-DVD sequel in 2011.)

For our Reunions issue, on stands now, EW asked each actress—as well as Fey—whether they’d want to revisit the Girls. READ FULL STORY

'Birdman' exclusive: Look behind the curtain of the 'play within the play'

“I too am not a bit tamed—I too am untranslatable; I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.” —Walt Whitman

Michael Keaton isn’t mid-sneeze in the photo above from Birdman. Actually, he’s executing the fierce war cry of Birdman, the iconic movie superhero who his character, Riggan Thomson, was famous for—before walking away from the role after Birdman III 20 years ago. In the new film, directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Riggan has bet everything he has on adapting, directing, and starring in a Broadway play based on Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. He too wants to make one final barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world, to prove his worth, not only to critics and his daughter, but himself. READ FULL STORY

EW's 'Fabulous Baker Boys' reunion: The stars all sing a different tune

Truth is like a good jazz standard: a different version emerges from everyone who sings it. When you start reminiscing with the stars of The Fabulous Baker Boys 25 years later, a kind of three-part harmony emerges. Everyone hits a different note, but somehow they’re still in sync. “We get all mixed up. We have different versions,” Jeff Bridges says. “But when we talk, we hash it out.”

In Entertainment Weekly‘s annual reunions issue, we bring together Jeff, his big brother, Beau, and Michelle Pfeiffer, who plays the torch singer who both energizes and threatens to destroy their piano-dueling partnership. The 1989 film, which earned four Oscar nominations, is the only time this trio teamed up on film.

After a quarter century, their memories are a little fuzzy—although everyone is sure his or her version is the correct one. READ FULL STORY
