Roger Corman Back Behind the Wheel with "Death Race 2050"

(NEW YORK) -- In 1975, beloved low-budget filmmaker Roger Corman strapped a pre-Kung Fu David Carradine and a pre-Rocky Slyvester Stallone into some deadly-looking cars for the cult classic Death Race 2000. Now, at 90 years young, Corman -- credited with launching the directing careers of the likes of Ron Howard, Francis Ford Coppola, and James Cameron -- just got behind the wheel again for another lap: Death Race 2050.  In the original Death Race 2000, the year 2000 was envisioned as a dystopian future in which the national pastime is a race features drivers mowing down pedestrians for points.  The movie was remade with Jason Statham in 2008 as Death Race, which spawned a 2010 sequel starring The Walking…

Nick Cannon Says Mariah Carey Was "A Little Flustered" During Her New Year's Eve Performance

(LOS ANGELES) -- Nick Cannon thinks that ex-wife Mariah Carey was just "a little flustered" during her now-famous New Year's Rockin' Eve performance. During a sit-down chat with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, Cannon jokingly told the daytime host that Mariah's flub was a government set-up.  "You know me -- I'm a conspiracy theorist. I think the government did that. They set her up. That was a distraction. They just put her out there," he says.  Turning serious, Nick acknowledged that performing live is difficult. "Anyone who knows about performing and having inner ears and stuff, things can go wrong on live television. I do live television all…

Zoe Saldana Says Hollywood Actors "Bullied" Donald Trump During Election

(LOS ANGELES) -- Zoe Saldana is taking Hollywood to task for its harsh treatment of President-elect Donald Trump. In an interview with Agence France-Presse that was re-posted on Yahoo, the Star Trek actress says that liberal Hollywood's brash treatment of Trump during the presidential election helped to turn off middle-class Americans and increase the president-elect's fanbase. "We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies," Saldana said of Trump, who has been repeatedly accused of being a bully by insulting and mocking those he doesn't like, or who disagree with him. Although not a supporter of the Republican president-elect, Saldana feels that Trump's behavior could be…
