Watch: Godzilla Trailer Delivers Atmosphere, Terror, Bryan Cranston

Originally posted 12/11/2013 11:00AM

A new Godzilla film is slated to hit theaters May 16, 2014. It'll be the first one in almost 10 years (the most recent Japanese installment came out on Nov. 29, 2004), and the first American Godzilla film since the widely-derided 1998 version.

The film is set to star Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston (in his most visible post-Breaking Bad role), as well as Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

So far, it looks like it'll conjure the requisite amounts of giant-monster-related dread, and we'll probably get to see a lot of Cranston running around and looking sweatily panicked, so it's got that going for it too.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Blooper Reel Lightens Up a Dark Show

Originally posted 11/18/2013 10:55AM

Season 5 of Breaking Bad was probably the most tension-ridden season of television we've ever seen. And that's why this this blooper reel is a treat.

Set to a jaunty soundtrack, the reel reveals, among other things, the cast's faculty with impressions: Bryan Cranston rattles off Bugs Bunny and Jack Nicholson at one point, while Anna Gunn shows off her Katherine Hepburn. Also, watching Cranston run full-speed into one of the car-wash doors is something we don't think we'll ever forget.

Despite what many conspiracy theorists and super-fans were postulating, Vince Gilligan came out and told The Hollywood Reporter that the finale of Breaking Bad was not a dream. So, sorry, everyone.

That said, if it were actually revealed as a dream, we would have wanted it to happen exactly like the video below, in which Hal from Malcolm In the Middle wakes up from a terrible nightmare. Not only is a treat to see Cranston reprise the role he was previously best-known for, but his descriptions of the show are hilarious.

Let This Silence of the Lambs Blooper Reel Remind You of Anthony Hopkins' Greatness

Let This Silence of the Lambs Blooper Reel Remind You of Anthony Hopkins' Greatness

Originally posted 11/08/2013 12:00PM

In case you needed to be reminded, Anthony Hopkins is amazing. Not only is he a deeply talented actor, but he's also an all-around gentleman and national treasure (even if he's, you know, not of our nation). And a few more reasons that support this claim have recently come forth.

1. This Letter He Sent Bryan Cranston

In October, Hopkins, like many of us, binge-watched Breaking Bad. However, like few of us, he sent a letter to Bryan Cranston after doing so. It read, in part, "Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have ever seen – ever."

And he kept going! "If you ever get a chance to – would you pass my admiration to everyone – Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Steven Michael Quezada – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance…" Yes, that's Hannibal Lecter, gushing like a fanboy to the cast of Breaking Bad. Which brings us to…

2. Hannibal Lecter… in general

We still have nightmares from Hopkins' portrayal of Thomas Harris' best-known creation. And 2,000 film buffs from LoveFilm.com recently voted Lecter the most terrifying horror film villain, which of course, adds to him having already been honored by the American Film Institute as their No. 1 villain of all time. Which brings us to…

3. This blooper reel

This blooper reel from Silence of the Lambs has been blowing up the Internet today, and really, we can sum up the reason for its popularity in one sentence: Anthony Hopkins does a Sylvester Stallone impression. (The rest of it's funny too, but we never thought we'd type "Anthony Hopkins does a Sylvester Stallone impression," so we're pretty over the moon about that.)

If you thought Aaron Paul lost it over magnets, wait until you see his reaction to a magic trick by illusionist David Blaine.

Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Paul join Blaine for his upcoming special, David Blaine: Real or Magic (airing on ABC Nov. 19) and Blaine surprises the duo with quite the card trick.

In the clip, Blaine asks Paul to shuffle a deck of cards.

After spreading out the deck, the trio realizes the cards are "almost like a flush," says Blaine. "Not quite though," says Cranston.

Bryan Cranston Eats Breakfast in Boston

RJ Mitte isn't the only Breaking Bad actor who loves breakfast.

Bryan Cranston, who is currently starring as former President Lyndon B. Johnson in All the Way at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., made a return visit to one of his favorite Boston-area restaurants Saturday morning.

Cranston headed to Zinneken's with a couple friends, where he feasted on the Cambridge mainstay's signature meal: Belgian waffles.

Opting for blueberry, strawberry and banana waffles – sans bacon – Cranston "was just a regular guy," the restaurant's manager told PEOPLE. "He was cool to people."

Dressed casually in a striped shirt and Los Angeles Dodgers hat, Cranston had no problem posing for a quick photo with one of the restaurant’s employees, a big Breaking Bad fan.

"When we asked if we can take a picture, he was like 'sure!' " said the manager.
