After the coffee. Before asking for Stephen Strasburg's work schedule. The Skinny: Being single with no kids sure can make one feel left out of the political process. At least that was my takeaway from Ann Romney's speech. Wednesday's headlines include ESPN's new baseball deal, Eddie Murphy's plan to milk "Beverly Hills Cop" for one more payday and a look at Chinatown's long history as a key location for filmmakers. Daily Dose: Apparently New Orleans isn't the only place bracing for Hurricane Isaac.

Controversy of one kind or another has dogged "Porgy and Bess" since its Broadway premiere in 1935. Just the fact that George Gershwin's first real stab at grand opera debuted on Broadway rather than the Metropolitan Opera, which had initially commissioned the work, encapsulates two of the work's main fault lines: the debate over whether it's a musical or an opera or something in between, and the matter of its African American cast, which necessitated...

The reformed supervillain Gru and his lovable yellow minions will reunite on the big screen in "Despicable Me 3," Universal Pictures announced Wednesday. The animated film is scheduled for release on June 30, 2017. The original "Despicable Me," which tells the story of a criminal mastermind (voiced by Steve Carell) who changes his ways after adopting three girls, was a surprise hit in 2010, earning more than $500 million worldwide. A follow-up, "Despicable Me 2," was the third-highest-grossing movie in the United States and Canada in 2013, generating $368 million in ticket sales; it earned $568 million more abroad.

Anze Kopitar has obliterated any fears that he might have been exhausted by his Sochi Olympic experience. He was exhilarated by reaching the quarterfinals with his native Slovenia and sustained that emotion when the NHL season resumed. Kopitar leads the Kings with nine points during their eight-game winning streak, and they'll try to match the club record of nine when they face Toronto on Thursday at Staples Center. "Definitely add emotionally. I had lots of fun," he said of how the Games affected him. "A great experience for me personally and for our team.

If orange is the new black, then witch is the new vampire as the spell-casting, broomstick-riding, cat-loving ladies are suddenly TV's supernatural archetype du juor. With "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Witches of East End" already on the air, it's no surprise CBS wants in on the action, but its proposed reboot of the not-too-distant-past witch series "Charmed" is getting the evil eye from two of that show's stars, Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan. "Charmed" aired on the WB from 1998 to 2006 and starred Milano, McGowan, Holly Marie Combs and Shannen Doherty (for three seasons)

The popular 1980s detective show "Remington Steele" is getting a modern-day make-over thanks to NBC, which is recasting the show as a half-hour comedy. The original series, which launched the career of Pierce Brosnan and also starred Stephanie Zimbalist, was an hour-long and also aired on NBC. It was part drama, part romantic comedy and part crime procedural. It was also hugely popular and is credited for launching other shows similar to it, including "Moonlighting. " Zimbalist played detective Laura Holt, who hires a con man played by Brosnan to assume the role of head of her detective agency under the moniker "Remington Steele.

I used to think the ride on the Superman shuttle coaster essentially ended when the car reached the climatic 415-foot-high peak. But now that Six Flags Magic Mountain has flipped the trains around to run backward, the fun is just getting started when you reach the top. I took a test drive this week on the re-dubbed Superman: Escape From Krypton coaster at the Valencia amusement park between takes of a TV commercial shoot...

In a move consistent with an entertainment climate thoroughly stocked with sequels and revivals, the venerable wooden puppets with roots in Italian commedia dell'arte are getting a new lease on life with "Punch and Judy Rebooted," a new performance in celebration of the duo's 350th anniversary. A classic of puppet theater that's said to have been performed in Britain since 1662, Punch and Judy are such a part of the pop culture fabric that someone can be familiar with their names without knowing what exactly they're referencing.

When Sony Pictures' plan for a fourth "Spider-Man" movie starring Tobey Maguire fell apart in January, the studio had to come up with a new way to keep the superhero series alive after three movies released from 2002 to 2007 grossed $2.5 billion worldwide. Its solution: Start over. Like many others in Hollywood seeking to breathe new life into an established movie franchise, Sony decided to "reboot. " FOR THE RECORD: In an article published Sept. 10 about Hollywood's efforts to breathe new life into established movie franchises, Matt Tolmach and Doug Belgrad were called co-presidents of production for Sony Pictures.

Even though beloved octogenarian actor Larry Hagman died late last year, his iconic character J.R. Ewing will be back in trademark form for the second season of TNT's reboot of "Dallas. " With bushy eyebrows twitching, J.R. will plot his way through seven episodes with a characteristic evil smile on his face and a greedy scheme up his sleeve. And when he departs the show - an unspecified untimely death is planned to reflect the real-life passing and to celebrate a life fully lived - he'll leave behind a mighty mess.

Jerry Bruckheimer, one of Hollywood's most powerful producers, is returning home. The veteran filmmaker, who had an enormously successful run on the Paramount Pictures lot with "Flashdance," "Beverly Hills Cop," "Top Gun" and other movies in the 1980s and early 1990s, is headed back to the studio. Bruckheimer, 70, signed a three-year, first-look deal with the Viacom Inc.-owned studio. It begins in April, after his 23-year partnership with Walt Disney Co. ends. Financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed.

NBC should listen to Angela Lansbury. The actress is not thrilled that the network is planning to make a new version of "Murder, She Wrote," the long-running CBS drama that she starred in about a mystery writer who becomes a real-life detective of sorts. "I think it's a mistake to call it 'Murder, She Wrote,'" Lansbury told the Associated Press when asked about NBC's plans. PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times Of course, the only reason NBC is remaking the show is that it thinks the name "Murder, She Wrote" still has some value.

Slavery is a hot topic, with the success of "12 Years A Slave" and "Django Unchained. " Now History is seeking to capitalize by remaking the historic 1977 miniseries "Roots.

The remake is called "Total Recall,"but many moviegoers have zero memory of the 1990 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. And that, according to the filmmaking team behind Sony's $125 million reboot of the sci-fi action adventure, actually might be a good thing. "The majority of people under 35 don't even know about the original," said Neal Moritz, who produced the "Total Recall" update opening Friday. "It was so cheesy... the tone of it was so much different from what I wanted to do. " Set several decades in the future, the new film stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale and takes place on an Earth that has been rendered largely uninhabitable by chemical warfare.

John Deasy, the superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District, can be impatient and stubborn, qualities we often admire in him. It takes a sense of urgency to get things moving in L.A.'s schools, as well as a willingness to stand against the forces that resist change. But it is important for the superintendent to pick his battles wisely, and he fell short on that score when he forged ahead on a $1-billion project to equip every student in L.A. Unified with an iPad. He expressed great confidence that the district had the answers to a number of important and easily foreseeable problems when, in fact, it didn't.

Acura made its name on upscale sedans and coupes, but its MDX crossover has quietly become the meal ticket for Honda's luxury division. Last year, the MDX made up about a third of Acura's sales in the U.S., and it has been the brand's biggest seller since 2010. So the automaker took the task of redesigning the upscale mid-size hauler quite seriously. It shows. The 2014 version is a ground-up reboot that balances luxury, utility, safety and value better than most of its peers.
