‘The Mauritanian’ Trailer: Jodie Foster and Benedict Cumberbatch Face Off in Court in Real-Life Guantanomo Drama

STX Films has debuted the trailer for a true-life courtroom drama with such a star-studded cast that it’s no wonder they squeezed it in just under the wire for awards season. The Mauritanian is based on the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi (A Prophet breakout Tahar Rahim) who, in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks, was held captive and tortured by the U.S. government in Guantanamo Bay detention camp for 10 years without charge or trial.

Melissa McCarthy Doesn’t Listen to Our Pleas, Re-teams With Ben Falcone for Netflix Series ‘God’s Favorite Idiot’

Melissa McCarthy: you’re one of the most talented actresses working today. But when you work with Ben Falcone, you’re comedic poison. The husband-wife duo’s collaborations have resulted in some real stinkers like Tammy, The Boss, and the recently released Superintelligence, all of which Falcone had directed and co-written with McCarthy, who starred in the films. And each new project has only delivered diminishing returns, each less funny and more insulting than the last. And now, McCarthy and F...

Monopffft.

The mysterious metal monolith that was found last week in the Utah desert has vanished. https://t.co/tUFYRCfhe0— The New York Times (@nytimes) November 29, 2020 I question whether the monolith has vanished. If you're with me in a room, then you leave and come back a week later, and I am not there, it would be a gross failure to follow Occam's Razor to say that I had "vanished." In all likelihood, I walked out, and I continue to exist. I've gone somewhere else. You just don't know where. The qu...

November linkfest

It’s Word of the Year season, and two British dictionaries are leading the pack. Collins picked lockdown – a word we threw around here in the US but never experienced the way they did in the UK and elsewhere. (A friend of mine is literally confined to her London apartment after spending a month in France: she can’t go outdoors at all.) And Oxford Languages, publisher of the Oxford dictionaries, chose a phenomenon instead of a single word: the impact of the COVID-19 on language. “What struck the...

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney.

Apple and Google responded by pulling "Fortnite" from their digital storefronts, and cited the update as a terms-of-service violation — which caused Epic to sue both companies. Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney characterized hi...
