Damien Chazelle shows first footage of biopic 'First Man'

"La La Land" director Damien Chazelle has given CinemaCon attendees a first look at his Neil Armstrong film "First Man" Wednesday morning in Las Vegas.

The heart-pounding trailer shows Ryan Gosling as Armstrong feeling heavy with responsibility before his historic mission to the moon. The footage features him telling his children, and wife, that there is a chance he won't make it.

Chazelle says he wanted to get to know the people who embarked on that incredible journey.

Gosling says it was a true honor to portray Armstrong. "The Crown" star Claire Foy plays Armstrong's wife Janet.

It is Chazelle's first film after "La La Land," which won him the best director Oscar.

"First Man" takes flight on Oct. 12.

“With Double Dare remaining an iconic touchstone for its original millennial audiences, the new version will feature the gameplay and challenges they remember, as well as appearances from blasts from the past and stars from today,” the network said in news release.

Millennials will remember that the show, which premiered in 1986 and ran until 1993, featured trivia between teams of children as well as physical challenges and an obstacle course with a human hamster wheel and “Double Dare” giant nose. “Family Double Dare” was similar, but the teams consisted of families with two adults and two children.

Entertainment Weekly reported that the show returned as “Double Dare 2000,” and aired on Nick from January to November 2000. Marc Summers hosted the original iteration of the show, but a new host will helm the 2018 version.

Postponement talk raised for Nobel Literature Prize

The Swedish Academy's permanent secretary has indicated that the recent crisis within the body that hands out the coveted Nobel Prize in Literature, may mean postponing this year's prize.

Anders Olsson told Swedish Radio Wednesday that the academy was in the middle of "a discussion," but declined to give details, adding "clarity on that point will come soon."

Peter Englund, who quit the academy amid sexual misconduct allegations within the body's ranks, told Swedish radio "it might be best to postpone."

Six of the 18 board members have stepped down, exposing bitter divisions within the academy. Sweden's king, prime minister and the Nobel board have expressed concerns.

Time magazine honors sex assault survivors and women at gala

Fresh from winning a Pulitzer Prize for helping to expose the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Ronan Farrow was honored as one of this year's 100 most influential people at the annual Time 100 Gala.

Farrow took his story to the New Yorker which published the account after NBC News passed on an earlier version.

Farrow walked the red carpet with alleged Weinstein sexual assault survivor Emily Nestor, and his mom, Mia Farrow, on Tuesday night in New York.

"It's a huge relief. There were obstacles arrayed around this story that I thought maybe would never be overcome, and we overcame them because of women like Emily Nestor who put her name on her story at a time when she had no idea what was going to happen or what the retaliation would be. And I'll spend the rest of my life grateful to her," Farrow said.

New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, who also won Pulitzers for their coverage of the Weinstein scandal, were also honored at the gala.

Collectively, the three journalists opened the floodgates for the outpouring of testimonials from women that faced abuse in the workplace.

Another survivor on the red carpet was Team USA gymnast Aly Raisman, who was one of the many victims of USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nasser.

Raisman was there to support fellow team member Rachel Denhollander, the first victim to come forward with allegations of sexual abuse against Nasser.

"Nobody can show you the pathway to healing. But I think what keeps me comforted is knowing that I'm not alone. Knowing there's a lot of people that are supportive and has a lot of people they want change," said Raisman.

Activist Tarana Burke was honored for her work in bringing #MeToo into social consciousness.

Besides being honored, Jennifer Lopez also performed. The Grammy-winning artist expressed why it was so important.

"I mean it's just an honor to be thought of and acknowledged," she said. "You look at the other names on the list, and it's just really humbling. It's really humbling and exciting."

Also attending the party were Nicole Kidman, Millie Bobby Brown and Olympic Alpine ski racer Lindsey Vonn.

"This year, having 45 women on the list — the most of all time — speaks volumes of how far we've come in society, and I think the tides are turning for sure," Vonn said.

Tony-winner Ben Platt, the former star of "Dear Evan Hansen" on Broadway, said he was impressed by the young people being honored, including four survivors of the Parkland school shooting.

"We're really seeing the younger generation stepping forward and taking the lead," he said. "We need to follow the lead of those younger than us sometimes."

Fleetwood Mac announces tour dates, discusses Lindsey Buckingham departure

Fleetwood Mac has announced dates for its 2018 North American tour, weeks after the firing of Lindsey Buckingham.

The band replaced Buckingham with Crowded House’s Neil Finn and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell, according to an April 9 statement

“We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family,” the group statement said. “With Mike and Neil, we’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalogue of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.

“Lindsey Buckingham will not be performing with the band on this tour. The band wishes Lindsey all the best.”

According to the majority of the rock band -- Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood -- Buckingham’s departure came from a scheduling conflict over a world tour.

“We were supposed to go into rehearsal in June and he wanted to put it off until November (2019),” Nicks told Rolling Stone in an interview published Wednesday. “That’s a long time. I just did 70 shows. As soon as I finish one thing, I dive back into another. Why would we stop?”

Instead, after meeting a month ago, the band decided to replace Buckingham and will go on a 52-date North American tour.

Rolling Stone reported that the group isn’t willing to say Buckingham was fired, per se.

“Words like ‘fired’ are ugly references as far as I’m concerned,” Fleetwood said. “Not to hedge around, but we arrived at the impasse of hitting a brick wall. This was not a happy situation for us in terms of the logistics of a functioning band. To that purpose, we made a decision that we could not go on with him. Majority rules in terms of what we need to do as a band and go forward.”

“Our relationship has always been volatile. We were never married, but we might as well have been,” Nicks said. “This is sad for me, but I want the next 10 years of my life to be really fun and happy. I want to get up every day and dance around my apartment and smile and say, ‘Thank God for this amazing life.’”

Martha Stewart's studio props up for auction

The pots and pans that once appeared on home decor and food expert Martha Stewart's television shows may soon find a place in someone's home.

The Salem News reports that Beverly, Massachusetts, auction house Kaminski Auctions is selling about 5,000 of Stewart's former studio props.

Her friend, Vincent Manzo, says about 90 percent of the items were personally picked by Stewart, who in 2004 was sentenced to five months in prison on charges that included obstruction of justice related to a personal stock sale.

Items of note include an antique toboggan used in a Christmas special, signed red oven mitts, and cookbooks.

Part of the proceeds from the May 5-6 sale will go to the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

Hank Azaria willing to stop voicing Apu on 'The Simpsons'

Hank Azaria is ready to stop voicing Kwik-E-Mart owner Apu on "The Simpsons" in the wake of criticism that it's a stereotype.

Azaria said on Tuesday's "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" that he hopes the Fox animated show makes a change, and he's willing to step aside if necessary.

Azaria said: "I'm perfectly willing and happy to step aside or help transition it into something new. I really hope that's what 'The Simpsons' does."

He added: "It just feels like the right thing to do."

People of South Asian heritage have criticized the heavily accented Apu for reinforcing stereotypes they say lead to bullying and self-loathing. Azaria said it makes him sad if anyone was bullied because of Apu. He said he "wanted to spread laughter and joy with this character."

The Latest: Cosby jury ends Day 1 without a verdict

The Latest on Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial (all times local):

9:45 p.m.

Jurors at Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial have finished their first day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.

The jury outside Philadelphia worked more than 10 hours before calling it a night late Wednesday. Judge Steven O'Neill told them, "Your mind is done. You're exhausted."

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting a woman at his home in 2004. He says it was consensual.

Before going back to their hotel, the panel of seven men and five women had Cosby's old deposition testimony read back to them.

The 80-year-old comedian gave a deposition more than a decade ago as part of chief accuser Andrea Constand's civil suit against him. He testified that he gave quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with back in the 1970s. He also testified about his encounter with Constand.

___

6:35 p.m.

Jurors at Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial appear to be focused on the testimony of a woman who claims his chief accuser spoke of framing a prominent person for the money.

The jury asked to rehear testimony from star defense witness Marguerite Jackson, a former Temple University colleague of Andrea Constand's.

Jackson testified that Constand told her she could fabricate sexual assault allegations and "get that money" from a lawsuit, bolstering Cosby's efforts to show Constand made up the allegations against him to extort a big civil settlement.

Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting Constand in 2004. He says it was consensual.

Deliberating jurors in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case have asked their first question of the judge.

The jury returned to a suburban Philadelphia courtroom less than two hours into its deliberations to ask for the legal definition of consent.

Judge Steve O'Neill said he wasn't able to answer it, telling jurors they've already been given the definitions of the charges they are considering.

Prosecutors say the 80-year-old comedian drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

His lawyers say Cosby's encounter with Andrea Constand was consensual. The defense says Constand falsely accused Cosby so she could file suit against him. Cosby paid Constand nearly $3.4 million in 2006.

Cosby's first trial ended without a verdict after jurors deadlocked.

Bill Cosby has arrived at a suburban Philadelphia courthouse where jurors will start deliberating at the comedian's sexual assault retrial.

The 80-year-old Cosby arrived on the rainy Wednesday. He gave a quick fist pump and sashayed toward people chanting "We love Bill!"

The jury of seven men and five women are to start weighing charges, one day after more than five hours of closing arguments that portrayed Cosby as a calculating predator and the victim of a multimillion-dollar frame-up.

The prosecution and defense gave jurors plenty to think about after a two-week trial on charges Cosby drugged and molested Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in January 2004.
