Watch the New Teaser Trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"

Buena Vista(NEW YORK) -- There's been a whole lot of hype for 88 seconds, but it's finally arrived: the teaser trailer or the new Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is now in 30 theaters across North America, and also online, via iTunes Trailers and the official Star Wars YouTube channel.

The clip opens with a shot of a desert planet, and a chilling voiceover saying "There's been an awakening, have you felt it?" The voice sound suspiciously like Benedict Cumberbatch, who appeared in the most recent Star Trek reboot, Into Darkness. Both the new Star Wars film and the Star Trek reboots were directed by JJ Abrams.

Then, a helmet-less Stormtrooper -- played by franchise newcomer John Boyega -- pops into the frame, followed by shots of droids, scenes of a squadron of Stormtroopers about to emerge from a ship, a woman -- fellow newcomer Daisy Ridley -- flying some sort of airborne vehicle, fighters zooming along, and a hooded figure tramping through a snowy woods, brandishing a new-look lightsaber. We hear an even scarier voice saying, "The dark side...and the light."

Then, John Williams' iconic score kicks in and we see...Han Solo's ship, the Millennium Falcon. Cue goosebumps.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens December 18, 2015. It takes place 30 years after 1983’s Return of the Jedi.

The Scary Prank Jennifer Aniston's Fiance Pulls on Her Late at Night

Ari Perilstein/Getty Images for LTLA(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Aniston has an amazing sense of humor, being that she is an A-list actress who is constantly in the spotlight.

So it would make sense that her fiance Justin Theroux also has a comedic side.

The Cake star, 45, spoke about the prank Theroux pulls on her late at night when she's not paying attention.

"He's so brilliant at everything he does. He's a wonderful actor, he's a brilliant comedy writer. He's also a beautiful artist ... And a beautiful human being," she said on The Talk about the Leftovers star. "He loves to scare me. He hides in closets for 20 [minutes]!"

In fact, she said he did it earlier this week!

"He was shutting down the house and I get distracted cleaning up a pile of whatever ... and I don't come right away and I'll get to the bedroom and he just comes flying out of a closet. I go, ‘Have you been waiting here for like 25 minutes? ... You, really, just 25 minutes in the closet?'" she added.

She continued that "it's fun."

Aniston also touched on the constant tabloid reports about her personal life.

"I don't pick them up," she said of the rumors in magazines. "I'll have people send a picture of a newsstand, where they'll be 'Baby Joy' or "Marriage' or 'Eloped'" she said of possible headlines.

She joked about that "close source," which she said, "Not very close, not very good friend."

Paul Walker's Brother Cody Remembers the Actor a Year After Death

Paul Walker (R) and his brother, Cody. Photo by Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- It has been nearly a year since the accidental death of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker, but his memory is still fresh in his brother Cody's mind.

Walker died Nov. 30, 2013, in a car accident near one of his charity Reach Out Worldwide events. Cody Walker has since taken the charity under his wing to keep it alive and thriving.

"ROWW continues to be, to function, to help others even after our primary contributor, my brother, Paul Walker has passed," Cody told E! News. "I know he would be so stoked to know that. ROWW changed his life, and he was so proud of it."

The mission of Reach Out Worldwide includes collecting toys and backpacks for less fortunate kids. Cody, 26, and the charity even went to the Philippines to help after Typhoon Haiyan late last year.

Cody Walker also talked about what his famous brother taught him up until his death at age 40.

"Just live your life to the fullest. Laugh a lot, love and find your true happiness," Cody said. "Remember that no matter how cool you think you may be, you're not cool enough to look down on anyone, ever. I am so lucky to have had him as a big brother."

Cody and his brother Caleb stepped in to help finish Furious 7 when some scenes were left after Paul's death. Furious 7 opens April 3, 2015.

Johnny Depp Opens Up About Recent Movie Flops

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) --  Johnny Depp has nothing to prove to anyone.

The Oscar-nominated actor and icon, 51, recently told Details magazine that he is no longer worried about the perception of what makes a movie a hit. He opened up about recent films that have done less than what is expected of the Prates of the Caribbean star.

"What is really satisfying is, like Marlon [Brando, one of his mentors and icons], getting to that place where he just didn't give a f---," Depp told the magazine. "First, I reached a point where I cared so much and was so diligent in terms of approaching the work. Then you get to where you care so f----- much that it gets g------ beleaguering, you know? But then a great thing happens. Suddenly you care enough to not give a f---, because not giving a f---, that's the total liberation. Being game to try anything."

Depp, whose recent movies like The Lone Ranger, did poorly at the box office, said hits like Pirates often happen by accident and are hard to replicate.

"It's like being a dog at the track," Depp added. "They expect you to live up to some race you happened to be in and won accidentally. From that first second, you're nothing more than a commodity. They have expectations of another Pirates. It's great if something works. Boy, that's killer. But God, to have that as your design . . . it's ugly, I think."

Finally the reclusive Depp said even though he is a legend and a sex symbol, "I'm f----- shy ... I'm living, in a sense, like a fugitive. I don't like to be in social situations. It's fine for me in a weird way, having to run and hide. Less and less, I have the opportunity to observe, because I'm the one being observed."

Taylor Swift Jokingly Called Out Justin Long for Singing "Shake It Off" at Knicks Game

Photo: Darren Michaels/Warner Bros. ©2013 Warner Bros. Television. // Image Group LA/ABC(NEW YORK) -- Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" is definitely a song that gets stuck in your head and you find yourself singing without even knowing it.

But to be singing the song while sitting right next to her -- that's a different story, but that's exactly what happened to actor Justin Long.

"At one point they were playing that song," Long told HuffPost Live about sitting next to Swift at a Knicks game earlier this week. "That song, you all know it and I think had been playing over the speakers. It's one of those songs that really gets in your head, really crawls in there."

The Yoga Hosers actor, 36, said he "sang it to myself, like absent minded."

"And of course she heard it," he added. "And she was like, 'Oh,' and sort of started laughing, and I was so embarrassed."

He said it just got in his head and he didn't even realize.

"I didn't do it so she would hear me. I wouldn't have done it had I been all that conscious of all that," he said.

But, in the end, Long said Swift was really sweet about it and was actually grateful.

Bill Cosby to Resign Role as Co-Chair of UMass-Amherst's Capital Campaign

Photo by: Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(AMHERST, Mass.) -- In the wake of renewed sexual assault allegations against him, Bill Cosby has agreed to resign his role as co-chair of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst's capital campaign.

Cosby is an alumnus of the school's College of Education, through which he received a master's degree and a doctorate. UMass spokesperson Edward Blaguszewski issued a statement to ABC News, saying that Cosby "has agreed to resign as an honorary co-chair of UMass Amherst's capital campaign. He no longer has any affiliation with the campaign nor does he serve in any other capacity for the university."

The Boston Globe says that Cosby and his wife had donated to the school's ongoing $300 million fundraising campaign.

A series of women have claimed to have been sexually abused by the 77-year-old comedian over the years. Earlier this month, Cosby's attorney issued a statement in which he referred to the allegations as "decades-old" and "discredited."

UMass is not the first organization to cut ties with Cosby. Last week, Netflix postponed the launch of a stand up comedy special. Cosby has never been charged in connection with the accusations.

Director Ridley Scott Slammed for White Casting in 'Exodus'

Photo by Stuart Wilson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  The film Exodus: Gods and Kings isn’t due out for another two weeks, but the movie's focus on the life of Moses is already being criticized because the actors in its major roles are whites playing Egyptians.

The movie stars Christian Bale as Moses, Aaron Paul as Joshua, Sigourney Weaver as Tuya and Joel Edgerton as Rhamses. On Twitter, the hashtag #boycottexodusmovie is trending, with posters airing their displeasure with the casting.

One poster wrote: “I actually wanted to see #BoycottExodusMovie but I won't waste my money on something some historically inaccurate.”

Another added: “Blacks only cast as slaves, thieves...Not the Kings and Queens? I hope @ExodusMovie bombs at the box office..”

There are several other actors of color in the film’s cast, including Ben Kingsley, Dar Salim and Indira Varma.

Director Ridley Scott addressed the issue in an interview with Variety, telling the publication the casting was a business decision.

“I can’t mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such,” Scott says. “I’m just not going to get it financed. So the question doesn’t even come up.”

In this respect, Scott isn’t alone. Much of Hollywood’s portrayals of notable Biblical figures have been by white actors – Liz Taylor played Cleopatra, Charlton Heston played Moses and Russell Crowe played Noah. There was one notable exception when Egyptian actor Omar Sharif played Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, in the 2006 film, The Ten Commandments.

Ramin Setoodeh, an editor with Variety, says Hollywood has a big diversity problem.

"They don’t often let actors of color or diverse actors play lead roles in films and I think we’re seeing this spill over to these Biblical stories," he said.

Scott’s film is also in hot water with religious groups, who are angry over Bale’s take on Moses.

In an interview with ABC’s Nightline, Bale said of Moses: “[He was] absolutely seen as a freedom fighter for the Hebrews, but a terrorist in terms of the Egyptian empire,” adding that if Moses were alive today, “Drones would be sent out after him, right?”

And at news conference in September, Bale said of Moses: “I think the man was likely schizophrenic and was one of the most barbaric individuals that I ever read about in my life. He's a very troubled and tumultuous man who fought greatly against God, against his calling."

Setoodeh of Variety said religious groups want to make sure the Bible is portrayed in a way that is fair and not offensive.

Exodus: Gods and Kings opens nationwide Dec. 12.

"Dancing With the Stars" Host Tom Bergeron on How Julianne Hough Did First Time as Judge

ABC/Adam Taylor(LOS ANGELES) -- There was a lot of talk surrounding former Dancing With the Stars pro Julianne Hough when it was announced prior to season 19 that the 26-year-old would be joining the judges table on the show.

Hough, whose brother Derek still performs on DWTS, has done splendidly, says host Tom Bergeron.

"I think she's been doing wonderfully. I think there was more on her shoulders and for Carrie Ann [Inaba] and Bruno [Tonioli --the other judges], as well when Len [Goodman] took a month off," Bergeron explained to ABC News. "I think they all stepped up wonderfully."

In fact, Bergeron, 59, thinks Hough only got better as the season wore on.

"I think Julianne's really hit her stride," he said. "She knows what it's like to be on that floor competing, her comments are concise, are empathetic, are knowledgeable. I don't think you ask any more of a judge."

Along with Hough, Erin Andrews enjoyed her second season as co-host, aiding Bergeron by interviewing the Stars, even asking the personal questions fans want to know.

"Erin's been doing great. She breaks me up, keeps me on my toes," he said, laughing. "I never know what she's going to say, I'm always paying close attention! That can be her role there and she has embraced it, of almost being the voice of the viewer, the person who has access and can ask or say what the people in the audience are wondering."

Season 19 ended on Tuesday night with a dramatic finale, where Alfonso Ribeiro took home the coveted Mirrorball trophy.

“I cannot believe this,” he said after the win. “I’ve wanted it forever … I don’t even know what to say. These are happy tears.”

Proof Even Jennifer Aniston's Friends Have No Idea When Her Wedding Is

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- Jennifer Aniston said even her friends get fooled by all the rumors that the actress and fiance Justin Theroux are tying the knot on certain weekends, according to various media reports from time to time speculating when the two will wed.

While on Wednesday's episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, DeGeneres said "because it is so secretive ... when we're invited, we go, 'We can't be in town, but should we be in town,'" referring to the fact that they don't know what to believe.

In fact, actors and couple Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher were also fooled.

"Our friends Sacha and Isla showed up for four parties, four little gatherings, about a year ago, they would show up in beautiful wedding wear," Aniston, 45, revealed. "Even the Fourth of July last year, they showed up and Sacha was in a powder blue suit and Isla was in a little cute dress and we were like, 'Guys, it's the Fourth of July, we are in cutoffs, we are eating hot dogs, we will actually let you know.'"

She continued, "Like Thanksgiving, I had a friends who said, 'I can't come this year, but should I?'"

DeGeneres, 56, even said one time her wife Portia de Rossi were told there may be a thing hosted by Aniston, but it wasn't like "Just come over, it was like, 'We'll let you know where it is and what time.'"

"We were like, 'Oh, should we make that?" DeGeneres said.

"But you didn't come," Aniston said.

"Yeah, we found out we didn't need to!" DeGeneres laughed. "There has to be a wedding for me to stay in town."

Lea Thompson Reflects on "Back to the Future" 30 Years Later

ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) -- It's been almost 30 years since Back to the Future hit theaters in 1985, but the movie starring Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson is just as iconic as ever.

Thompson, 53, who played Lorraine, Fox's mother in the film, spoke to US Weekly about the movie and her favorite memory of filming.

"My favorite memory of Back to the Future actually is seeing it! I was engaged to Dennis Quaid at the time and the movie had been out for like two months and we went to the Cinerama Dome," she said. "They gave me a free parking spot and it was completely full and we stood in the back and watched the whole movie. People were just ecstatic!"

Thompson said her favorite of all the Back to the Future movies -- where Marty McFly travels either back in time or into the future, usually to save his family or his close friend Doc Brown -- was the original.

She also kept the "pink dress" she wore in scenes with Fox from the first film almost three decades ago.

The actress, who was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars earlier in the month, said she doesn't keep in touch with the cast "too much," but "I love [the cast]. I do see Claudia [Wells, who played Jennifer Parker] a lot and Chris Lloyd [who played Doc Brown] here and there."
