Empire Season Two Teaser Released

In what appears to be the first glimpses of season two of Fox’s hit show, Empire, not much has changed.

With the words “New Music, New Money, New Power, New Season” flashing on the screen, the 30-second teaser features Taraji P. Henson as matriarch Cookie Lyon, along with her three sons: Hakeem, Jamal and Andre, played by Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, Jussie Smollett and Trai Byers respectively. “Boo Boo Kitty,” otherwise known as Anika, played by Grace Gealey, also seems to survive the first season.

One image is a definite hint at things to come: it’s an outdoor concert, where the words #FreeLucious, are prominently displayed.  The teaser ends with Terrence Howard’s Lucious Lyon wearing an orange prison jumpsuit as he emerges into the common area, where Cookie’s waiting for him, seeming to show he’s still locked up when the season starts.

But does this also mean Lucious and Cookie are finally on good terms? Find out when Empire returns to Fox September 23.

Anne Hathaway Responds to Amy Schumer’s Insult in Trainwreck

Anne Hathaway may have been the punchline of a joke in Trainwreck, but the movie still had her laughing.

On Monday, the Oscar winner posted a photo of her ticket stub on Instagram and wrote a message to Amy Schumer, who wrote and stars in the film.

“Dear @AmySchumer, Don’t pretend like when you win your Oscar — which you could for your brilliant and refreshing writing and/or acting in @TrainwreckMovie — you won’t tote it around to every Oscar party you go to,” she wrote, signing off, “Way to slay, Annie.”

In the movie, there’s a joke about looking as excited as Hathaway at an Oscar party — a nod to 2012, when the actress won an Academy Award for her role in Les Miserables.

However, she’s not the only celebrity to be mentioned in the film: Mark Wahlberg, Kanye West and other stars get shout-outs too.
