Let’s Grade Each of Those Rumored ‘Star Wars’ Disney+ Spin-Offs

Over the past couple of days, a pair of rumors cropped up claiming that nine Star Wars Disney+ spin-off shows are in early stages of development. We have not been able to verify these rumors, but Disney+ is going to need content and Star Wars is one of the most popular properties around, so it’s not completely unreasonable to think that a few of these ideas may actually be kicking around in the halls of the Mouse House. In lieu of treating any of these spin-off ideas as if they’re the absolute ...

Will the pope go vegan for Lent?

Pope Francis is known for his simplicity, favoring what’s been called “papal athleisure” over the fine silks worn by his predecessors, and urging Christians to forego greed. He doesn’t want to be a millionaire. But will he turn down the chance to donate a million dollars to the charity of his choice? That’s what a group of celebrity vegans, led by 12-year-old Genesis Butler, are offering if Pope Francis goes vegan for Lent. The group Million Dollar Vegan launched earlier this month by sending a...

The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen from Black Directors

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week we give a nod towards Black History Month with a look at some of the best, little-seen films from black filmmakers.) Great films and filmmakers are worth celebrating all year round, but we live in a world that likes to categorize and quantify, meaning February has been designated as Black History Month (and Women in Horror month too f...

This Swedish musician is Grammy- and Oscar-nominated for ‘Black Panther’ and Childish Gambino work, and next is TV’s ‘Mandalorian’ Star Wars series

Ludwig Göransson heads to the Grammy Awards on Sunday with four chances to win – nominated three times for his collaborations with hip-hop artist Childish Gambino, and once for his score to the Marvel superhero film “Black Panther.” Two weeks later, he’ll slip back into his fancy clothes for a night at the Oscars where his “Black Panther” score is also nominated. So yeah, it’s a good month to be Ludwig Göransson, but as the 34-year-old talks about the journey from his hometown in Sweden to the b...

Marc Webb's '​The Amazing Spider-Man​' Is a Reboot That Deserves a Rewatch

None Spider-Man 3 (2007) was a disappointment to pretty much everyone, including director Sam Raimi. Although financially successful due to a surprisingly large worldwide gross (it remains the highest-grossing Spider-Man film worldwide), the messy narrative failed to live up to the standards of Raimi's celebrated first two films. In late 2007, Raimi and stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst signed on to Spider-Man 4, James Vanderbilt was hired to write the screenplay, and an early May 2011 rele...

FX boss John Landgraf revealed as much at TCA (via Deadline), stating that the series will likely not air before the Emmys in a bid to push quality over quantity. “We have so many programs that don’t cycle back on an annual basis,” Landgraf said, citing series such as Fargo and Taboo. “You have to make a decision about quality o...

‘Atlanta’ Season 3 is Being Written Right Now, But Won’t Air in Time For the 2019 Emmys [TCA 2019]

Atlanta has become Donald Glover’s most popular creative endeavor, and that’s saying a lot considering his music career and his roles in  Community and Solo: A Star Wars Story . It takes a lot longer for him to produce a season of Atlanta though, because Glover creates, produces, cowrites and stars on the show. During his executive session for the Television Critics Association, FX CEO John Landgraf updated the progress on season 3. “The writers are back working, thank God,” Lan...

Off the Grid in Belize With Island Expeditions

What does the word "luxury" really mean when you're heading to Belize? This is, after all, a country where nature is the main draw and there are exactly zero international luxury hotel chains. (Just a lot of really nice independent ones.) There are places where you will get turndown service, a driver in a nice SUV, or a villa with a view, but you can get those things almost anywhere around the world. We think the best reasons to come to Belize are the experiences, especially the ones that brin...

More on today’s orders

This afternoon the justices issued orders from their private conference earlier in the day. In addition to the two partisan-gerrymandering cases set for argument in the March session, the justices also granted review in four other new cases, involving issues ranging from “immoral” copyright marks to  vagueness in a federal criminal law. In Iancu v. Brunetti, the justices will take up a First Amendment challenge to a federal law that bans the registration of “immoral” or “scandalous” trademarks. ...

The 10 Best Movie Capes of 2018

Capes: They’re not just for superheroes. And they never were, thank you very much. Throughout the history of film , capes have been giving high drama to every genre, from historical epics to horror films to character-based dramas to high-fashion romps to, yes, the superhero movie. They’re dramatic, impractical (yes, Edna Mode, “no capes!,” we know ), and too, too damn cool. The cinematic capes of 2018 were no exception.

In a series of interviews with various media outlets, Glover said his reason for giving up his long-running musical alter-ego was that he felt it had run its course and he wants to focus on other things including his award-winning TV series, “Atlanta.” That doesn’t mean the 35-year-old ...

Sanders Seems To Be Gearing Up For Second Shot At The Presidency

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — An insurgent underdog no more, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is laying the groundwork to launch a bigger presidential campaign than his first, as advisers predict he would open the 2020 Democratic presidential primary season as a political powerhouse. A final decision has not been made, but those closest to the 77-year-old self-described democratic socialist suggest that neither age nor interest from a glut of progressive presidential prospects would dissuade him from und...

Early voting centers across Los Angeles County opened on Saturday — here’s what to expect

By Bradley Bermont, Correspondent Standing in the parking garage on the West Los Angeles College campus, David Rosenthal was baffled. In-person early voting opened in Los Angeles County on Saturday and the campus had a polling location — but there weren’t any signs to direct him where to go. He had to ask a security guard for directions, but he — and many other voters — eventually found the fine arts classroom turned polling center. They were among the first Angelenos to cast their ballots in th...
