Anne Hathaway is joining The Witches remake cast as the Grand High Witch herself. Robert Zemeckis is helming the new take on the Roald Dahl children’s book, which was previously adapted into a disgusting (in a good way) movie from director Nicolas Roeg. Zemeckis’ film will allegedly take the story from the UK and set it in the American South. Variety is reporting that Anne Hathaway will play the Grand High Witch in Robert Zemeckis’ The Witches remake. Anjelica Huston played the role in Nicol...

Sometimes It Sucks

If you believe everything you see on social media, then your friends are living the most amazing lives ever, full of clifftop sunsets, James Beard-worthy dinners and knee-deep powder days. Social media is like a well-curated highlight reel of our lives. But listen, sometimes life sucks. Meals are occasionally lackluster, hikes are sometimes boring and there are more hard crust days than powder days in any given ski season. We just don’t fill our Instagram feed with those sort of mundane detail...

Travel: No ship of fools for these cruise performers

Garry Carson has heard it thousands of times from cruise passengers before showtime: “I don’t like magic, but let’s see if the guy is any good.” Some entertainers would have bruised egos overhearing such comments, especially on a crowded elevator ride to the deck of the theater. But after 500-plus cruises over 22 years, the seafaring magician knows the life of taking an act on the road where there are no roads. “These people aren’t there because they love or even like magic,” said Carson, pointi...

South Korea said on Tuesday it hopes a trip by Kim Jong-un to Beijing this week will act as a “stepping stone” for a second summit between the North Korean leader and Donald Trump, the US president. Kim arrived in China by train on Tuesday, his 35th birthday, for a four-day visit and his fourth round of talks with Xi Jinping, the Chinese president.

Alexander: Another dreary year for as Pac-12 football fades in the West

If you watched the Fiesta Bowl last Tuesday, you may have noticed an ad for the American Athletic Conference, the home of the University of Central Florida. Emboldened by the football success of UCF and Cincinnati, it has taken to labeling itself as part of the group of “Power Six” conferences. How cute. Meanwhile, as we watch the Pac-12 continue to slip behind the field in the two sports that matter most to the largest number of people, it’s worth wondering if what is actually known as the Powe...

AK Monthly Recap: December 2018

And just like that, 2018 is over. December was a nice way to end it, though. I spent most of my time in New York with a few quickie trips to Texas and Massachusetts via Connecticut, and longer time in Mass over Christmas. Each year, I try to crank out my final posts of the year early so I can relax — and I’m glad I pulled it off this year. And every year I stay off business email between Christmas Eve and New Year’s. (Though I did get one urgent press request on December 24 with a due date of D...
