Ridley Scott’s Thelma & Louise was released in theaters on May 24, 1991, which means its been exactly 25 years since Geena Davis (Thelma) and Susan Sarandon (Louise) decided to “just keep going” and drive their Thunderbird into the Grand Canyon. But though the movie is probably best known for that tragic final scene,…
The miserably titled Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is a sequel in the most classic sense: the key players have all returned, and the setting hasn’t changed. It’s a retread with higher stakes. But even if you were a fan of 2014's surprise hit Neighbors, a follow-up could seem like a hard sell. This couple again?…
When shopping around for new viewing material, cast a skeptical eye upon IMDB ratings for things seen as “girly,” because there’s a good chance that opinions from dudes are dragging down the average.
When Kristen Stewart last collaborated with director Olivier Assayas as a headliner in Clouds of Sils Maria, she won a coveted César for her performance. She is also being lauded for her performance in Assayas’s most recent production, Personal Shopper, though the film itself has elicited some nasty reactions. In…
I am not typically scared of Ben Affleck, math, or sunny-side up eggs but all three of those things made me fear for my life during the teaser trailer for the upcoming thriller The Accountant. The two-minute spot is heavy on Radiohead and light on plot details, so here’s the synopsis, as reported by Deadline:
Lupita Nyong’o will likely land a lead role alongside Chadwick Boseman in Marvel’s first black superhero movie, Black Panther.
Keanu is a movie about a couple of black dudes who try to save a kitten by pretending to be drug dealers. But is it supposed to be funny because the black guy really loves his kitten? Is it about the kitten loving him back? Is the joke about not being black enough? Not being tough enough?
Get ready for like six prolonged close-ups of pointe shoes and bleeding feet, because the dance gods have blessed us with another Center Stage (which, let’s be real, aggressively holds up in 2016).
Ryan Murphy has another anthology series in the works at FX. It’s called Feud, and it’s about feuds, and the first season will be dedicated to the feud between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, who will be played by Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange, respectively.
In an interview with The Guardian, Seth Rogen talked about his recent realization that some jokes in his films, including Superbad—and, now that you mention it, yes, even his recent movies—are “blatantly homophobic.”
There is a predictable kind of response generated from news that a beloved movie from a generation’s childhood will soon be receiving a long-awaited sequel or reboot—a deafening argument about nostalgia that puts excitement (“FINALLY!”), anger (“YOU’RE RUINING MY CHILDHOOD!), and annoyance (“CAN’T HOLLYWOOD THINK OF…
Netflix and the BBC are teaming up for a new adaptation of Richard Adams’ Watership Down, which is about a bunch of displaced rabbits looking for a new home, but is much, much stranger than that description makes it sound. The cast includes James McAvoy, John Boyega, Nicholas Hoult, and others.
An official Whitney Houston documentary is in the works under the same umbrella as last year’s popular Amy Winehouse film, Amy.
Purple Rain, Prince’s vaguely-autobiographical, 1984 film might be a bit of a mess, but it’s a delightful one, replete with ruffled shirts, over-the-top proclamations of desire, and a wildly buffoonish villain. And now it’s returning to theaters this month as a tribute to the late superstar.
Here is the second season trailer for HBO’s Ballers and you know what? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson keeps his shirt on the entire one minute and eleven seconds, yet I still want to watch. Who said women who don’t care about (most) sports don’t watch sports shows?

A comedy titled Women in Business is in the works starring Kate McKinnon, Emma Stone and Jillian Bell. It’s about women in business.
