Labor Day means the end of summer, so Tim Stack, Senior Writer for Entertainment Weekly, joined Kathie Lee and Hoda to give you a sneak peek into all the TV shows and movies to watch for this upcoming fall season, including Skyfall, The New Normal and The Mindy Project reviews.
Fall Movies: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Review
Coming out this fall is Breaking Dawn Part 2. He said this is the final installment of the series and it has much more attention on it because of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart breaking up.
Fall Movies: Skyfall Review
Skyfall is the new James Bond film starring Daniel Craig. It is his third time playing Bond and they are keeping it very secretive on what it means, but it apparently has something to do with Judi Dench’s character. Ralph Fiennes is in this one and Javaier Bardem is the villain in this one and he has long hair and a ponytail.
Fall Movies: Les Miserables Review
This is the film version of Les Miserables. Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway star in it and it is the first film adaptation of the musical. They sang live for the movie and it has lots of big stars in it.
Fall Movies: Django Unchained Review
Django Unchained is Quentin Tarantino’s new movie. It has Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx. It is a sort of tongue-in-cheek movie and Jamie Foxx plays a freed slave who goes after Leonardo. Tim said it is going to be wild.
Fall TV Shows: Nashville Review
Tim said he thinks it is the best new show for the fall. Nashville is on ABC on Wednesdays at 10pm. Hayden Panettiere plays sort of a Taylor Swift up and comer and Connie Britton plays the Faith Hill-type singer. It is about Nashville, the city and discovering new talent and they will be doing original songs. They both actually sing on the show.
Fall TV Shows: The Mindy Project Review
The Mindy Project stars Mindy Kaling, from The Office. This is her first series on her own. Tim said she plays sort of a Bridget Jones-y OB/GYN. She is struggling being single and her job. He said it is really funny.
Fall TV Shows: The New Normal Review
The New Normal is from Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee and American Horror Story. This is his first attempt at a half-hour sitcom. It is about a gay couple who decide to have a baby via surrogate. Tim said it is very funny and very sweet. NeNe Leakes, from The Real Housewives of Atlanta fame, stars in it as his assistant.
