'American Skin' explores race, policing and loss through a provocative lens

"American Skin" touches on raw nerves in the midst of a chaotic historical moment, which is ultimately the whole point. Following his 2016 feature debut "The Birth of a Nation," writer-director-star Nate Parker seeks to bore into the issues surrounding policing and Black America, through a provocative but flawed dramatic vehicle that strains against its confining central device.

‘Palm Springs’ Sets New Hulu Record With the Biggest Opening Weekend for the Streaming Platform

No, the buzz for Palm Springs that you’re seeing all over social media is not déja vu. After Max Barbakow‘s time loop romantic-comedy starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti debuted to glowing praise at the Sundance Film Festival, Palm Springs set records as the biggest deal at the annual Park City fest.

‘Palm Springs’, The Lonely Island’s Time Loop Rom-Com, Arrives on Hulu in July

Palm Springs, the delightful time-loop romantic comedy produced by The Lonely Island, was acquired for more money than any other film in Sundance Film Festival history after it premiered at the festival earlier this year. The movie, which stars Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Cristin Milioti (Fargo, Black Mirror), and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), finally has an official release date and a summer-friendly poster to go along with it. I’ve been anticipating the Palm Springs release date for month...

Andy Samberg’s ‘Palm Springs’ Breaks Sundance Sales Records [Updated]

Update: Deadline is now reporting that the Palm Springs deal is actually worth $22 million, not just the $17,500,000.69 that was previously reported. Apparently there is a “built in bonus structure” involved which was not mentioned in the official press release, making it an even more impressive acquisition and bolstering its position as the biggest Sundance deal in history. Our original article follows. Andy Samberg’s Palm Springs just broke the nicest records at the 2020 Sundance Film Festiva...

Andy Samberg’s Palm Springs just broke the nicest records at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival this year. Hulu and Neon acquired the romantic-comedy for $17.5 million…and 69 cents. The number broke Sundance sale records for the biggest acquisition deal, sailing past Nate Parker’s 2016 film The Birth of a Nation by, yes, 69 cents. And while Hulu and Neon made a historic deal worthy of a few winks and nudges, Apple and A24 celebrated a more serious record-breaking deal in their acquisition of Boys ...

After dominating Sundance for 2 years, Netflix and Amazon bought 0 movies at the festival — insiders told us why

Amazon Studios and Netflix didn't buy any movies at this year's Sundance Film Festival. This is a shocking result compared to the last two years when both companies were on a spending spree at the fest. Industry insiders told Business Insider one of the reasons for this sudden halt was that both companies are less interested in independent films — and filmmakers are looking for traditional theatrical deals. There were a lot of smiles around Park City, Utah, during this year’s Sundance Film ...

Sister of Nate Parker’s Accuser: Why Art Shouldn’t Be Separated From Artist (Guest Column)

VOTE: Armie Hammer Apologizes To Casey Affleck — But Does Affleck Deserve It??

Even before he was being called a beneficiary of white privilege in an article that eventually led him to delete his Twitter account, Armie Hammer was courting controversy. In one interview, he spoke about the unfair "double standard" in how his Birth Of A Nation director Nate Parker and Manchester By The Sea star Casey Affleck were treated by the media and the industry. With Nate in "director's jail" and Casey having a Best Actor Oscar on his shelf, it's easy to see his point. Video: Timothee C...

Why Aren't Female Celebrities Allowed To Mess Up?

I'm well aware it's an unpopular opinion for me to like Lena Dunham. I think she's a talented writer and a good-hearted public figure who genuinely makes the effort to be a better person. I also know that she has an insufferably loud mouth and multiple blind spots that are exacerbated by her unchecked privilege, and that I take less offense to these missteps because of privilege of my own. These opinions aren't mutually exclusive — or, at least that's what I thought.There was one evening when m...

Rachel Lindsay Can Date A Man Of Whatever Race She Pleases, Okay?

Before she broke history for The Bachelor franchise by becoming the first Black Bachelorette, we knew Rachel Lindsay was open to interracial dating. After all, she was one of women vying for Nick Viall’s heart last season. He is nothing if not very white. The politics of interracial dating in this country are complicated, as evidenced by the fact this is the most diverse season of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, ever. But make no mistake about it: This is the result of a certain kind of white...

A member of queer punk rock duo PWR BTTM was recently accused of sexual assault, news that has taken the music industry by surprise . On May 11 a person claiming to be part of Chicago’s DIY scene and queer community wrote on Facebook that musician Ben Hopkins is a “known sexual predator” and “perpetrator of multiple assaults.” A band that was booked to tour with PWR BTTM tweeted they had been forewarned about Hopkins’ predatory behavior and Jezebel posted an anonymous interview with...

Can We Please Make Armie Hammer Happen?

At first glance, it's pretty easy to sum up why Armie Hammer should be a star. The man is gorgeous.But behind that face, which I would describe as a the love child of young Warren Beatty and Ryan Gosling, with a dash of Bradley Cooper, and a sprinkle of Jon Hamm (for height), Armie Hammer has something else going for him — the man is funny. And he's weird. And unexpected. And kind of just generally awesome. (If you don't believe me, just check out his strong Instagram game. It's a treat.)Until ...

Even When White People Finally Get It Right, They Still Get It Wrong

In one of the most entertaining “spontaneous” bits I’ve ever seen performed at the Academy Awards, Jimmy Kimmel allowed a group of flabbergasted and starstruck tourists into the Dolby Theater to walk past the audience. This, of course, introduced the world to #GaryFromChicago and his wife — computer generated composites of every Black uncle and aunt ever — who both then introduced themselves to Denzel, Ryan Gosling, Mahershala Ali’s Oscar, and then finally Mahershala Ali. It was an ingenious and...
