Eight years ago, Mikey Weiss had wanted to build a display of vintage stereos at his Brooklyn store – “a museum piece,” he calls it – to show people what stereos looked like in the 1970s.

Amidst the stock of 21st-century gizmos, there was, of course, a smattering of vintage...

How Glossier turned itself into a billion-dollar beauty brand

When Glossier founder and CEO Emily Weiss first had the idea of launching a beauty startup, she began with a simple question: how could you make a beauty brand whose sweatshirt people would want to wear?

Disney Wants Taika Waititi to Develop a New ‘Star Wars’ Movie

The ever-busy Taika Waititi is already part of the Star Wars universe, having lent his voice talents to and directed an episode of the Star Wars series The Mandalorian.

‘Confederate’ TV Show Confirmed to Be Officially Dead at HBO

HBO has officially axed Confederate, the controversial alt-history slavery drama from Game of Thrones co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

In a year of epic finales, 'Star Wars' and 'Game of Thrones' stumbled while 'Avengers: Endgame' soared

"Avengers: Endgame," "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," and "Game of Thrones" season eight all delivered finales (of sorts) for their respective franchises this year. "Endgame" is the least divisive of these finales because the MCU had a clear ending in mind for this era of the franchise and the next few years are already mapped out. The "Star Wars" franchise has suffered from production woes and a lack of a long-term plan, while "Game of Thrones" outpaced its source material. These weren't u...

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Opens With Underwhelming $175 Million, Cats Flops

(NEW YORK) — The Force was a little less strong with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. J.J.

'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' has the third-best opening of the year with $176 million, but earns less than 'The Last Jedi' (DIS)

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" earned an estimated $176 million at the domestic box office this weekend. That figure marks the third best opening of the year. It is also the third-best opening ever for the month of December, below the openings of "The Last Jedi" and "The Force Awakens." Though the opening is a huge figure, for the "Star Wars" saga it is underwhelming and is another indication that audiences are tiring of the constant barrage of the franchise. "Cats" only brought in $6.5 mi...
