ABC/Gilles Mingasson(NEW YORK) -- Fans of How to Get Away With Murder are still recovering from the major truth bombs that were dropped during last Thursday night’s episode.

Turns out, Karla Souza's Laurel is not the character #UnderTheSheet, but she’s -- spoiler alert -- pregnant?

The next new episode won’t air until tonight, and even though Souza chatted with ABC Radio's GMA After Hours, she wasn't spilling any spoilers. Why? Because Shonda Rimes is keeping everybody in the dark -- including the cast.

"They haven't told me who the father is!" says Souza.  "I mean, they wrote in enough for you to be sort of like: 'Is it Frank, is it Wes?' Is it -- who knows?' You know? And...i guess it's going to be very exciting to find out, but also worrisome, because she's in the hospital bed, about to maybe die!  

How to Get Away With Murder airs 10 p.m. ET on ABC.

Courtesy Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. (LOS ANGELES) --  20th Century Fox has revealed the trailer for Logan, Hugh Jackman's last go-round as the titular X-Men hero. 

Directed by James Mangold, who helmed well-received hit The Wolverine, the promo spot for Logan shows a very different Wolverine than the basically indestructible, metal-clawed mutant: his regenerative powers waning, he's scarred and suffering from tremors.

The moody clip, set to Johnny Cash's haunting cover of "Hurt," shows that Patrick Stewart's once powerful psychic, Professor Xavier, is now frail.  He pins their hopes to a young girl. "She's like you," Professor X tells Logan. "She needs our help." 

The girl is apparently a fugitive from a government program that turns kids into killer mutants.  And like Logan, she too has metal claws.

Naturally, there are nefarious folks on their tail, including Narcos star Boyd Holbrook, playing mutant hunting cyborg comic baddie Donald Pierce.

The fan reaction to the trailer has been stellar, including from none other than Deadpool star and Hugh Jackman fanboy Ryan Reynolds, who tweeted: "Inject this film directly into my face immediately."

The movie opens March 3, 2017.

Anthony Harvey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After almost a decade of marriage, Ellen DeGeneres is grateful that she found her "best friend" in wife Portia de Rossi.

"Because not everybody finds that," she told People magazine for this week's cover story. "Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky.’"

The famed talk show host, 58, says that she often thinks about her blessed life, especially since "it took a while to find this."

"Sometimes it’s lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say thank you to whatever, whoever is out there. I’ve gotten to a place where I really am just settled. Really. I know that I’m not going anywhere. She’s not going anywhere," she said.

de Rossi, 43, and the comedienne married in 2008 and live in Los Angeles with a slew of pets, and that's just fine with them.

“Our priorities are each other too. If we had kids, then I’m sure they would be, but we are. And that’s important," she said. "You want to feel that you’re understood, and they know exactly who you are, and they know how to take care of you. That, to me, is family. I don’t think it has anything to do with blood relation."

In fact, DeGeneres "can’t imagine not being married."

DeGeneres, who came out as gay in the 1990s, recently sat down with ABC's Nightline to talk about her journey.

"When you’re gay and you’re successful in this business, your whole team says, ‘Don’t rock the boat. You know, you’re doing fine,'" she said about coming out while headlining a successful sitcom years ago. "And I just thought, you know, what’s equally as important as my career is living my life without shame."

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) -- Kim Kardashian West is taking things "one day at a time" after being robbed at gunpoint in a Paris mansion earlier this month.

"It's a process," her mother Kris Jenner told E! News in an exclusive interview. "One day at a time. It's a process."

Jenner has been gathering the family around Kardashian West to make sure "she feels loved and safe."

"She's home, and that's all that matters," the Kardashian matriarch said. "She wants to be with her kids and family. It's just family first."

Jenner spoke out for the first time about the robbery while attending an event for daughter Khloe Kardashian's Good American denim line.

At the event, Khloe called the traumatic incident a "wake-up call."

"I mean, definitely it's been an incredibly traumatic experience for Kim and she's definitely taking some well needed and much deserved time off," the 32-year-old said.

Meanwhile, Kardashian West and her other family members are re-evaluating their public lives.

"When you have a daughter at home who's struggling because of something horrific and tragic that happened, you start looking around a little bit differently," Jenner said. "I think this is a wake-up call not only for our family, but for anybody in a similar position."

On October 3, armed robbers forced their way into the Paris home where Kardashian West was staying, tied her up and locked her in a bathroom before making off with more than $10 million worth of jewelry.

Todd Williamson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Actress Shailene Woodley pleaded not guilty Wednesday to criminal trespass and riot charges that came following her arrest earlier this month while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.

Woodley faces a maximum penalty of 60 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $3,000 if convicted, according to court docs from the district court in Morton County, North Dakota.

Woodley was arrested on October 10 for protesting the four-state crude oil pipeline that has courted controversy since earlier this summer, when the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe sued to block its construction, claiming the pipeline threatened the tribe's water supply and traversed culturally sacred sites.

Woodley broadcast her arrest on Facebook Live.

Amy Goodman, a journalist for "Democracy Now!," was also arrested while covering the protest last month and charged with criminal trespass, according to a statement from the Morton County Sheriff's Department.

Goodman's arrest garnered outrage from many who claimed that it infringed on her First Amendment rights as a journalist. The Morton County Sheriff's Department later dismissed the criminal trespass charge against Goodman but said in a statement that other charges were still being considered against her.

Justin Stephens/Comedy Central(NEW YORK) -- Amy Schumer took the stage at Madison Square Garden in New York on Tuesday and read an open letter directed at the 200 audience members who walked out of her show a couple of days earlier in Tampa, due to her harsh criticism of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to New York magazine.

“Dearest Tampa, I’m sorry you didn’t want me, a comedian who talks about what she believes in, to mention the biggest thing going on in our country right now,” read the 35-year-old comedian and Inside Amy Schumer star. “How could I think it was OK to spend five minutes having a peaceful conversation with someone with different views?”

“After the show, I want you to know that I will go straight to a rehab facility that will teach me how to make all people happy. Both the rich, entitled, white people who are gonna vote for him and the very poor people — who’ve been tricked into it!" she continued. "And Tampa, I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster. Shouldn’t have said that. I will never again say that he is an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster!”

A few audience members who spoke to the Tampa Bay Times after Sunday's show in Tampa said her Trump remarks were too political.

Steve Wilkie - Fox(LOS ANGELES) -- We've been doing the Time Warp” for 40 years, but heck...let's do it again.

Thursday night, Fox presents The Rocky Horror Picture Show -- Let's Do the Time Warp Again, a reboot of the 1976 cult film that put Susan Sarandon, Tim Curry, Meat Loaf and Barry Bostwick on the map, and featured daring depictions of bisexuality, cross-dressing, cannibalism and more.

The movie's star is Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite alien mad scientist who creates Rocky, a hunky blond, as his sex slave. When innocent couple Brad and Janet arrive at Frank's mansion, they enter a hedonistic world where sexual hijinks, partner-swapping and murder are on the menu.

Tim Curry played Frank in the original, but in the reboot, he's the narrator. Orange Is the New Black star, transgender actress Laverne Cox portrays Frank in the Fox production.

"The film is epic," Cox raves to ABC Radio. "The set design, the costumes, the way we tell the story, the cast -- it’s so epic and so special and it really is an homage to the fans...who've made Rocky Horror the longest running film in movie history."

The cast also includes Victoria Justice as Janet, Ryan McCartan as Brad, and Reeve Carney,Christina Milian and Annaleigh Ashford as Frank's servants.  Ben Vereen portrays Dr. Scott andAdam Lambert plays Eddie, Dr. Scott's lobotomized nephew.

Rock legend Meat Loaf -- Eddie in the original -- isn’t sure why the movie still captivates.

"I can’t explain it," he tells ABC Radio. "The only thing that I can explain about Rocky Horror is there’s a line in it and it says, 'Don’t dream it; be it.' … If you want something, go and work for it!" 

The Rocky Horror Picture Show -- Let's Do the Time Warp Again airs October 20 at 8 p.m. ET

ABC/Randy Holmes (NEW YORK) -- Actor Ewan McGregor's directorial debut, the drama American Pastoral, opens in limited release Friday, but he will soon be seen in two much higher profile projects, a sequel to Trainspotting, in which he had his breakout role, and as Lumiere the candelabra in Disney's upcoming Beauty and the Beast live-action film.

On Live with Kelly, McGregor told Kelly Ripa of the former film, which takes place two decades years after Danny Boyle's original black comedy debuted, "We had a moment every day on set where where we called it, 'the twenty years later moment'...because it would remind you every now and again, playing the same character, that that time had passed."

The movie's original core cast, including Robert Caryle, Jonny Lee Miller, and Ewen Bremner, all returned for the follow-up -- though McGregor, who played Renton, couldn't reveal to Ripa or her guest co-host Ciara if the characters were still doing drugs. But with a laugh, he acknowledged, "It was fun!"

As for Beauty and the Beast, which debuts next November with Emma Watson as Belle, McGregor said he had a tough time nailing Lumiere's accent. "I'm married to a Frenchwoman for 20 years, my children speak French, and I was dreadful...It suddenly became very Mexican...I sort of did this this Mexican candelabra...But then we got a chance to re-do it again, and I made it a bit more French."

The film, which McGregor says allowed even the CG characters to appear live, "at the end," opens in March of 2017 from Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

Trainspotting 2 opens in February of 2017.

Marvel - © 2016(LOS ANGELES) -- Before fans had a chance to recover from writer-director James Gunn revealing the poster to hisGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on social media, the first ever teaser to the anticipated sequel dropped. 

This time around, the team of Chris Pratt's Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana's Gamora, a teeth-picking Rocket Racoon, and Dave Bautista's hulking Drax -- as well as a still-growing Baby Groot peeking out from Quill's boot – are joined by returning players Michael Rooker and Karen Gillan asYondu and Nebula, respectively.

The teaser – which like the first one is set to Blue Swede's Hooked on a Feeling -- reveals small snippets of action and even a sense of foreboding, combined with the movie's trademark irreverent humor.  For example, a sign reading, "Spaceuits for emergency" has been tagged with a magic marker scrawl "OR FOR FUN."

"This summer," a title card reads, "The galaxy won't save itself." 

"There are two types of beings in the universe," Drax advises. "I get it," Quill says, "I'm a dancer, Gamora is not." 

"You just need to find somebody who is pathetic, like you," the metaphor-challenged alien advises, before grabbing Quill in an unwanted bro hug. 

Rocket and Baby Groot also make an appearance, with the former blowing a hole in something -- or someone -- and smirking through it, and the baby version of the tree who sacrificed himself at the end of the first film cooing cutely.

Guardians of the Galaxy, which also stars Kurt Russell as Quill's dad Ego, The Living Planet, opens May 5, 2017. 

Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

Lucasfilm/Disney(LOS ANGELES) -- Daisy Ridley knows a thing or two about launching a new Star Wars film. The star of the new franchise is less than a year out from the debut of the blockbuster first film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and a little more than a year away from the December 2017 debut of its sequel, Star Wars: Episode VIII, which finished principal photography in July.

So Ridley knows what Felicity Jones, the star of the upcoming standalone film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is going through. But there’s no rivalry between the new Star Wars stars. Ridley tells ABC Radio that while she hasn’t seen an advance of Rogue One, she and Jones just had drinks a few weeks ago.

“I have not seen it. I'm very excited to though. I hear very good things," says Ridley.  "And me and Felicity had a drink a couple of weeks ago and it was really interesting talking to her because I've had so many conversations this year, but she's literally about to do the same exact thing I was doing this time last year, and it's super exciting.”

Ridley added that she has great admiration for Jones, saying, “She's like the greatest, and also I'm a huge fan of hers so I was trying to keep it together.” 

Ridley's new documentary, The Eagle Huntress, which she narrates and executive-produces, opens November 2, 2016.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released on December 15, 2017 by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

©1966 United Feature Syndicate Inc./ABC(NEW YORK) -- Linus has been waiting a long time for The Great Pumpkin to arrive. Fifty years, to be exact.

Tonight, ABC airs the classic Peanuts special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which premiered back on October 27, 1966.

In the beloved animated special, written by late Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, Linus, Charlie Brown's blanket-loving pal, anxiously awaits in a pumpkin patch the coming of The Great Pumpkin, which he believes delivers toys to children.

Sally chooses to stay with Linus in the patch but lets him have it when -- spoiler alert! -- The Great Pumpkin doesn't show.

While Linus is preoccupied with The Great Pumpkin, the rest of the gang goes trick-or-treating -- poor Charlie Brown gets rocks in his bag -- and then celebrates Halloween at Violet's party.

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown airs at 8 p.m. ET.

Paramount Pictures/Sunset Boulevard/Corbis via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Tom Cruise stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night to promote his latest action film, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Also appearing on the show was special musical guest Kenny Loggins, who sat in with the band. Ahead of his appearance, Jimmy asked Kenny if he would play “Danger Zone” -- the theme from Cruise's 1986 blockbuster film Top Gun -- when Cruise comes out. Kenny joked that he didn’t know it, then  assured Jimmy “Oh, it will happen!”

Sure enough, when Cruise was introduced, Loggins played the song. “When you hear ‘Danger Zone,’ does that make you want to jump in your jet, grab Goose and go hunt down some bogeys or whatever?” Kimmel asked.  Cruise laughed and said it made him want to jump on his motorcycle. He also mentioned that Tuesday was actually the first time he’d ever met Loggins.

Jimmy spent much of the interview on Top Gun, pointing out that the film is now 30 years old and asking Cruise if he ever catches the film on Netflix, Cruise responded, “I watch it every day.”

But will there be a Top Gun sequel?  Cruise didn't say no, declaring, “You know, it’s just gotta be right, that’s all. I mean, we just gotta figure it out.”

The two did chat a little about Cruise’s new film, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.  Kimmel pointed out that Cruise's character spends a lot of the movie beating people up. He asked the actor if he enjoyed watching himself do that, to which Cruise replied, “It’s very satisfying.”

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back opens Friday.

Screen image courtesy CBS(NEW YORK) -- President Obama brushed up on his job-hunting skills with the help of Stephen Colbert on Monday night's The Late Show.

Colbert introduced the prerecorded segment by noting that "a friend of his" will be losing his job soon. Acting as an office manager named "Randy," he attempts to help POTUS transition into his next career by engaging him in a mock job interview.

Colbert asks "Mr. O'Balmer" why he hasn't gotten a promotion in the last eight years. "Honestly, there wasn't a lot of room for advancement in my last job," notes the president. "The only one with a more powerful position was my wife."

"It doesn't say here. Where were you born?" Colbert asks, referring to the "birther" issue that has plagued the president's political past. "Really?" replies Obama with a smirk.

The president's use of executive orders also came up during the "interview," when he explains that he used one of them to gain his 77 million Twitter followers.

Colbert's "Randy" also helped Obama express his accomplishments into more resume-friendly terms, turning, “Brokered international deals that slowed the impact of climate change and prevented Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon” into "mastering Microsoft Excel."

"Saving the American auto industry" became “able to drive a stick.”

The Late Show host then explained that he couldn’t ask the president to officially endorse either Trump or Democrat Hillary Clinton on a network TV show, and asked him to pick a favorite “snack” instead.

"Would you care for an extra fiber nutrient bar, which has traveled to more than 100 countries," asks Colbert, "or this shriveled tangerine covered in golden retriever hair, filled with bile that I wouldn't leave alone with the woman I love?"

"I think I will go with the fiber nutrient bar," Obama answered.

Bindi Liebowitz on "The Voice"; Tyler Golden/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- The battle rounds wrapped up on The Voice Tuesday night, with Blake Shelton using his second and last steal in the final moments.

Blake and fellow coaches Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys now have eight artists each on their teams.

We saw three of this season's advisers -- Sammy Hagar, with Team Adam; Bette Midler, with Team Blake; and Charlie Puth, with Team Alicia -- help out the contestants during rehearsals.

Team Miley was already set and was not featured Tuesday night.

The one-hour episode began with a Team Blake battle between Austin Allsup and Preston James. Adviser Bette Midler instructed them not to be afraid and have fun with their performance of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic "Bad Moon Rising." 

After watching the two artists perform, Adam said Austin was great right off the bat, while Preston showed talent at a young age -- 16. Blake added that Preston is on the "fast track." However, he named Austin the winner, citing his experience. Preston was eliminated.

Team Alicia's Gabriel Violett went up against not one, but two singers: sister act Shannon and Whitney. Adviser Charlie Puth taught them how to reach the high notes on their rendition of "More than Words" by Extreme.

Miley said she was rendered speechless by what she saw from these artists on The Voice stage. She learned towards Shannon and Whitney because she was "infatuated" with the duo. Alicia said Gabriel was unafraid to soar with his vocals, and that the sisters emanate love and show the world what music can look and sound like. Alicia kept Shannon and Whitney on her team. Gabriel was sent home.

For the final battle of the season, Team Adam's Bindi Liebowitz and Brendan Fletcher were paired up forMarc Broussard's "Home."

After the two artists belted out the song in front of the coaches, Adam described Bindi's vocals as middle register, similar to Rihanna. He said Brendan has an "otherworldly" and "thunderous" approach to performing. Adam picked Brendan as the winner. Not surprisingly, Blake -- who still had a steal to use -- added Bindi to his team.

The Knockout Rounds begin Monday night on NBC, with husband-and-wife country superstars Tim McGrawand Faith Hill serving as advisers.

Here's a rundown of each coach's artists:

Team Adam: Jason Warrior, Dave Moisan, Riley Elmore, Billy Gilman, Brendan Fletcher, Nolan Neal, Simone Gundy, Ponciano Seoane.

Team Blake: Sundance Head, Dana Harper, Gabe Broussard, Karlee Metzger, Austin Allsup, Josh Gallagher, Courtney Harrell, Bindi Liebowitz.

Team Alicia: Courtnie Ramirez, Christian Cuevas, Sa’Rayah, Wé McDonald, Michael Sanchez, Shannon and Whitney, Kylie Rothfield, Belle Jewel.

Team Miley: Ali Caldwell, Lauren Diaz, Sophia Urista, Josh Halverson, Aaron Gibson, Darby Walker, Maye Thomas, Josette Diaz.

Danny Martindale/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Harry Shearer, the longtime Simpsons voice star who along with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and director Rob Reiner created the legendary mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, has sued the studio that owns the rights to the movie over millions in lost profits. 

According to a video tweet from Shearer, Vivendi, has ripped off the movie's creators off for years. "....Between 1984 and 2006, Canal, a French subsidiary of Vivendi reports that our share of merchandise income worldwide for This Is Spinal Tap is 81 dollars," Shearer said, repeating, "81 dollars for 22 years."

Music sales between 1989-2006 totaled an alleged 98 dollars -- "enough to buy a minature Stonehenge," Shearer quipped, referring one of the movie's signature bits. 

Shearer is suing the "major multinational" for fraud -- to the tune of $125 million, according to the suit. The movie's original contract stipulated that the core four involved were to receive 40% of the profits since its release.

So called "Hollywood accounting" tricks sometimes manage to make hit movies seem less profitable on paper than they actually were, with the studio taking the difference. In the case of the studio here, Shearer claims Vivendi et al claimed Tap was never profitable at all -- despite two theatrical releases and sales from Beta to Blu-ray and beyond, the actor claims.

The low budget film has been a cult hit since its 1984 release; the fake band reformed for a 1992 album and concert tour behind its Break Like the Wind record. 

Shearer posted his tweet with the hashtags #fairnessrocks, adding "Time for #fairplayfairpay @Vivendi, @studiocanal & @canalplus."
