Brad Pitt Has Regular Movie Nights With David Fincher, and They Sound Exhausting

Watching a movie with Brad Pitt sounds like a dream — and if it plays out like the wonderful, frequently memed scene from Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, it probably is. But if Pitt’s movie buddy is David Fincher, that changes things up completely. Fincher is infamous for being an intense and meticulous filmmaker, and it turns out he’s an intense and meticulous movie-watcher. Pitt revealed that he and his Seven and Fight Club director have regular movie nights, and that sound...

2021 Grammy Nominees Include ‘Joker’, ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’, ‘Eurovision Song Contest’, and More

The 63rd annual Grammy Award nominations were unveiled this morning, and since the music industry’s biggest award show is on a different timetable than awards shows like the Oscars or the Emmys, it can often feel like the Grammys are extremely far behind when it comes to pop culture. Case in point: composer Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s Oscar-winning score for Joker, which was initially released over a year ago, is nominated in the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media category. But there are still a f...

Mads Mikkelsen is Keeping Those ‘Hannibal’ Season 4 Hopes Alive

Another day, another story about the Hannibal season that never was. Hannibal was a beautiful tropical fish of a show, but it was also so strange and otherworldly that it’s a miracle it lasted more than one season. But it did. In fact, it lasted three seasons, and while I think the final episode of season 3 serves as a pretty damn good series finale, there has always been hope that someone would swoop in and rescue the show for season 4. The folks involved with the series have held onto this h...

The New ‘Scream’ Movie Will Pay Respect to the Previous Four Films

It certainly seems like the new Scream movie (which is the fifth film in the franchise but confusingly just called Scream again) is going to be a direct sequel to the previous four films and not a reboot. Even though the sequel angle was apparent due to returning cast members like Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette, there was always a chance that the new Scream could follow in the footsteps of 2018’s Halloween, which was both a direct sequel to the original Halloween and a reboot b...

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Vinyl Soundtrack Coming From Mondo

Hey kids, remember Solo: A Star Wars Story? It was the film that effectively killed off the Star Wars anthology films because it didn’t blow up at the box office. But the Ron Howard-directed flick really isn’t as bad as its reputation suggests, and if you’re a fan of the film – and the film’s score, by John Powell – here’s some good news: Mondo is releasing a Solo vinyl soundtrack. I know Solo: A Star Wars Story has a bad reputation. The film was plagued with problems before it even hit the...

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Sneak Peek: ‘Deadpool 2’ Actor Julian Dennison Plays Belsnickel

Two years ago, 20 million people reportedly watched Kurt Russell don a red suit and beard to play Santa Claus in Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles. Goldie Hawn, who is Russell’s real-life partner, cameoed as Mrs. Claus in that film, and now the couple have reunited for The Christmas Chronicles 2, which has been playing in some theaters in advance of its Netflix release this week.

‘Insert Coin’ Video Game Documentary Coming to Alamo Drafthouse VOD and More Virtual Cinemas

Even though the South by Southwest film festival was canceled back in the spring when the coronavirus pandemic was just beginning to tear through the United States, some of the movies intended to premiere at the festival still screened for critics. One of those movies was Insert Coin, a video game documentary looking at Midway Games and the making of historical video games like Smash TV, NARC, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Mortal Kombat, NBA Jam, and more.

‘Eyes Wide Shut’ Vinyl Soundtrack Coming From Mondo This Week

Nothing says the holidays like Eyes Wide Shut, Stanley Kubrick‘s psycho-sexual drama set at Christmastime. Kubrick’s film – his last, completed right before his death – has become a kind of gonzo alternative holiday movie, and to celebrate this festive season, Mondo is releasing the film’s soundtrack on vinyl for the first time ever.

Amazon Orders ‘The Expanse’ Season 6, Which Will Bring the Sci-Fi Series to an End

The Expanse will return for a sixth and final season on Amazon. The streamer just gave the go-ahead for The Expanse season 6 ahead of the season 5 premiere, which is set for December. The series, which “is set in the future where humanity has colonized the solar system,” originated on Syfy, where it ran for three seasons. After Syfy canceled the show, Amazon swooped in and picked it up. Now, the end of the series is in sight. Amazon Studios announced today that they’ve gone ahead and ordered...

Dave Chappelle Pulls ‘Chappelle’s Show’ Off Netflix, Calls for Boycott on Other Streaming Platforms

Dave Chappelle is calling his fans to boycott…Chappelle’s Show? The 2003 sketch comedy show which Chappelle co-created and hosted initially ran on Comedy Central, and is now available on several streaming services — which Chappelle isn’t very happy about. See, it comes down to an issue of pay, after he signed a lucrative contract with Comedy Central for which he “never got paid.” So until he gets paid, Chappelle would rather Chappelle’s Show not be available to stream anywhere, and Netflix — wh...

‘The Mandalorian’ Feeds the Child’s Hunger with Official, Infuriatingly Expensive Macarons

Last week’s episode of The Mandalorian gave us the latest adorable Baby Yoda scene. We watched the Child admire a pack of blue macarons that a kid was eating, and when they rudely wouldn’t acquiesce to The Child’s desire for one, he rightfully used his Force abilities to snatch them. He even brought them back to the Razor Crest for a space snack (though he ended up throwing them up all over himself). Now The Mandalorian macarons can be yours, but you’re not going to like how much they cost. ...

‘His Dark Materials’ Emerges From “The Cave” With an Exciting New Drive

His Dark Materials continues its upward momentum with “The Cave,” an episode that really hones into the science-fantasy elements of the show in reinvigorating new way. The show is more Jules Verne-inspired quest than dour Game of Thrones knock-off now, and it’s exciting to see how this more confident His Dark Materials is beginning to take shape. A Different Oxford His Dark Materials is proving that it cast its two leads right, as Dafne Keen and Amir Wilson show off their sparkling dynami...

The Opening Dance Scene in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Sums Up Why We Love These Movies

(Welcome to Great Moments in MCU History, where we fondly recall great little bits that made us fall in love with the MCU.) Once upon a time, Guardians of the Galaxy was not a beloved corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe featuring characters that would become eventually become Avengers. If you’d told me back in 2014 that both Rocket Raccoon and Nebula would be major players in the fourth Avengers movie, I would have had to look up who Nebula even was.

Nearly 700 Movie Theaters Closed Over the Weekend, Making for a Dispiriting Pre-Thanksgiving Box Office Haul

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to get worse in the United States, many states are tightening restrictions on non-essential businesses and gatherings of people. That may not stop the plethora of idiots who are still forcing their Thanksgiving plans into existence despite the irresponsibility of it all, but it did result in the shutdown of nearly 700 theaters this past weekend, making for a poor showing at the box office on a weekend that is typically full of huge blockbusters.

Boss Level, the latest from Narc and The Grey director Joe Carnahan, has been sitting around waiting for a distributor since 2019.

But while Brie said that she would be open to returning to the role in a feature film, she doesn’t think Netflix would be likely to greenlight it. Three seasons and a movie?
