Adam Driver Was Told Where ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Would End Up Before Filming ‘The Force Awakens’

Adam Driver has been keeping a Star Wars secret for several years, and it’s not something mundane like Kylo Ren getting his helmet back in Star Wars: Episode 9. In a new interview, Driver says he’s known for a long time “where it was all going,” so read on as we narrow down the possibilities of what he’s talking about. Speaking with Deadline, Driver compared the experience of working on the HBO series Girls to working on the Star Wars movies, dropping one particularly interesting bit of infor...

VOTD: Watch Cher’s Speech in ‘Clueless’ Performed by Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield & More

Clueless is one of those generation-defining comedies that has stood the test of time. It’s one of the best representations of the ’90s, albeit with a focus on a very niche demographic of upscale Los Angelenos living a mostly superficial, carefree life. Much of the film’s greatness comes from Alicia Silverstone‘s pitch perfect performance as the teenage Cher, a bubbly, confident and charming spoiled girl who manages to somehow be both down to Earth and up in the clouds at the same time. But wha...

The 13 Funniest Movies of 2018: Sex, Death, Racism, Drugs, and Superpowers

Every awards season, there are a lot of comedies that get swept under the rug simply because they’re trying to make people laugh. Most comedies aren’t “good enough” to be considered for Oscars, and even the Golden Globes ignore many of the real comedies in favor of movies pretending to be comedies, like The Martian or Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. This past year brought us a wide array of comedies, but rather than merely classifying them as your average comedy, we wanted to just count down The 1...

Review: BlacKkKlansman

— by BEV QUESTAD — The greatest thing about “BlacKkKlansman” is Spike Lee’s totally manifested, constructive genius. Based on the true story of Ron Stallworth’s infiltration into the KKK in 1978-79, his film shows the fluidity, through time, of racist hegemony in the US. But America, we are on a path to getting better. That’s […]

‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Release Planned for March 2019 as Film Finds New Distributor

Terry Gilliam‘s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote might finally see the light of day in North America – for real this time. Gilliam’s film went through years of turmoil before he was able to finish it – and even then, the problems still weren’t over. Amazon was set to distribute the flick, but pulled out at the last minute, leaving Don Quixote‘s U.S. release in limbo. Now, Screen Media has acquired the North American rights, with plans to release the film in 2019. What a journey it has been for...

Nominations for the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards arrived on Thursday and while a lot of the news was expected – “A Star Is Born” continues to roll in the early rounds of awards shows’ nods – there was plenty you might not have guessed in the office pool, such as the fact that “Vice,” the Dick Cheney biopic that doesn’t arrive in theaters until Dec. 25, leads the pack with six nominations.

“I Know That Place, It Sounds Like Vermont.”

They settled on Vermont. This place sounds nice! Pancakes on the porch, spiced apple compote, the leaves change colors but the people never do. As the saying goes, it’s funny cause it’s true. Although famously liberal — Tru...

Kanye West wore a "Make America Great Again" cap on SNL, and he said some pro-Trump things and got booed and cut off.

People reports:He started off by singing, “I wanna cry right now. Black man in America, you’re supposed to keep what you feel inside right now.

How the hell did you get here?’ Well…”Wearing a Make America Great Again hat, he then delivered an unexpected speech in front of SNL performers like Colin Jost and host Adam Driver as some audience members...
