The original film trilogy would end in massive box office returns, Oscar glory, and an ever-lasting legacy.

Director Sebastián Lelio understands that sometimes the sight of Julianne Moore dancing and smiling is enough to set the heart a flu...

And while the FCC has completely blocked law enforcement investigations into which group was behind these efforts, you can expect significantly more details to emerge durin...
