Mr. Nancy—played by Orlando Jones—makes his debut on the next episode of American Gods, and his fiery introduction is one of the season’s best scenes. He manifests in the cargo hold of a slave ship, bluntly telling the kidnapped Africans about the future that they and their descendants will inherit.
Movie fans rejoice! The obvious cinematic tale of John McAfee allegedly doing drugs, having sex, and going out of his mind in Belize will become a movie. Johnny Depp will play John McAfee, an obvious choice. But how will the A-lister manage to look as decrepit as the anti-virus software mogul? Bath salts, probably.
The team behind Wet Hot American Summer is making a comedy called Moon Cruise about, well, a cruise ship in space. Around the moon, presumably.
Man in the High Castle season two is going all-in on the presence of alternate universes. The show came back on Friday, and it used alternate universes to create parallels between characters in ways you wouldn’t expect.
At the premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this weekend, Disney CEO Bob Iger said, “It is not a film that is, in any way, a political film. There are no political statements in it, at all.” That cannot be true. Star Wars is, and always has been, inherently political.
Stranger Things got two Emmy nominations this morning, both in the same category: Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media. Poor Stranger Things is going to split the vote against itself, isn’t it?
Westworld finished its first season last night. Most of the time, we learned exactly what we expected to— but that didn’t stop the show from delivering as many punches as it could on the way there.
The boarding school is a staple of young adult literature, mainly because adventures are much easier to find when parents are nowhere to be found. Plus, all the emotion of being away from home and having to negotiate a while new environment is baked into the set-up. And you can have your protagonists together 24/7.…
The Addams Family premiered 25 years ago. Both it and its sequel, Addams Family Values, are strange films. Not because they’re about the Addamses, but because they’re best enjoyed as vignettes—and that aspect actually makes them one of the most faithful movie adaptations out there.
The extended Suicide Squad cut is only eleven minutes longer than the theatrical cut, not nearly enough to contain all the pure awesome that Jared Leto delivered to the set every day. If you were wondering what’s missing, well one fan has looked at all the available footage and figured out what Joker scenes we still…
On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, doctors told Kim that a third pregnancy would be risky and even life-threatening owing to a potential complication known as a “retained placenta.” Here’s what that means, and why Kim is now seriously considering getting a surrogate mother.
Yesterday, the New York Times published a short profile on the current state of Warner Bros. titled “Warner Bros., Quietly Thriving, Recasts Its Own Story.” That article repeats a refrain we’ve heard from this company before: Why does everyone keep saying we’re in trouble? All those badly-reviewed movies still made…
The Nutcracker, one of the latest films in Disney’s stable of live-action versions of classic tales, has just cast Kiera Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy.
We got about a minute of footage last week, and now the full trailer for the movie adaptation of Ted Chiang’s “Story Of Your Life” is here. And it is tense.
Today at the TCA panel, CBS entertainment president Glenn Geller explained that moving Supergirl to the CW was a great move for them and the show. And that “If we heard the right superhero pitch, we would absolutely buy it.” Let’s help him find it.
Maybe they should learn a little bit more from it than simply “motivation.”
This is a fairly constant problem in translating: What do you do when one of your biggest plot points depends on wordplay? In Game of Thrones’ case, it came up in one of the biggest moments from last season, forcing many international versions of the show to find some very creative solutions.
At the end of Star Trek Into Darkness, it seems like Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) is poised to join the Enterprise and become an important member of the crew (and break up the near-total sausage party that is the cast). But come Star Trek Beyond, she’s nowhere to be found. Now we know why.
Warner Bros. is doubling down on turning Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them into a series of its own. And now the studio has announced that Fantastic Beasts 2 will be released on November 16, 2018.
On one hand, casting Willem Dafoe as the voice of Ryuk the shinigami (probably best translated as “death spirit”) in Death Note is great. On the other hand, Netflix’s live-action U.S. adaptation of the hit manga and anime ismissing out on big savings by not just using Dafoe’s actual, terrifying face in the film.
