Beating the Stranger Things mobile game unlocks a new clip from season 2 

Earlier this week, Netflix put out a free—and shockingly decent—Stranger Things mobile game to promote the quickly approaching premiere of the series’ second season. It turns out there was a little surprise waiting for fans who made it all the way through the gang’s Zelda-inspired video game adventure. Over on Reddit,…

Eli Roth’s Death Wish reboot has been pushed to 2018

The Death Wish reboot has been a questionable idea since it was first announced two years ago—the first film of the original franchise might have had some critique of vigilantism nestled within all of the Charles Bronson shootings, but any ostensible message became more obscured with each sequel. At a time when the…

Harvey Weinstein goes on the offensive in first post-New York Times piece interview

Having already exercised legal pressure against The New York Times—to the tune of a potential 7-figure lawsuit— over a piece it ran today, collecting decades-worth of stories from women who say he sexually harassed them over the years, Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has now gone on the verbal offensive as well.…

Nazi-killing video game adopts controversial anti-Nazi marketing stance

It’s a weird day-and-age we’re living in right now, where “Nazis are bad” has become an actual political stance, as opposed to a bit of basic, obvious wisdom. And yet, there’s something shockingly brazen about seeing it stated so bluntly, as in a Twitter ad released tonight for upcoming Nazi-killing video game …

Conan makes Kumail Nanjiani cut himself in half in the latest Clueless Gamer clip

Another high-profile video game is set to arrive in stores in a couple of days—in this case, highly anticipated sequel Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War. (You can read the start of Matt Gerardi’s coverage of the game right here). That means it’s time once again for Conan O’Brien to joke and roll his eyes through another…

Tyrese Gibson now blames The Rock for ruining the whole Fast And Furious series

Earlier today, Tyrese Gibson ushered in a new age of Fast And Furious feuds by blaming Dwayne Johnson (or “Dewayne” Johnson) for butting his head in and forcing Universal to delay Fast And Furious 9. In an Instagram post, he accused Johnson of making the series about himself rather than the whole #FastFamily, which…

Gore Verbinski might direct Gambit, assuming it actually gets made

Channing Tatum really wants to play moderately popular X-Men character Gambit for some reason, and Hollywood is going to do whatever it possibly can to make that happen. Doug Liman was attached to direct a solo Gambit movie for a while, but he dropped out over some issues he had with the script. Before that, Rupert…

Looks like Harvey Weinstein might have made up that JAY-Z quote

Suggesting that an “apology” that ends by taking a weird veer into jokes about the NRA and Bar Mitvahs—and gets immediately followed up with an attempt to sue the people who brought the apologizer’s alleged bad deeds to light—might not be the most sincere or authentic thing ever written, rap fans have noticed that…

Universal pulls its Bride Of Frankenstein reboot from the schedule

In some bad news for the future of Universal’s Dark Universe, Deadline is reporting that the studio has pulled one of the series’ upcoming films—Bride Of Frankenstein—from its release schedule. Bill Condon is directing the movie, and it was supposed to start production in London in February, but Condon and Universal…

White House chief of staff John Kelly's phone has been compromised for months

Lately, the Trump administration has been having some trouble with security (actually, the Trump administration has been having trouble with literally everything, but security is the focus for this story). Most of the issues have been centered around private email servers, the use of which seemed like an inexcusable…

Read This: How Milo Yiannopoulos served as a bridge between pissed-off tech bros and white supremacists

For those of us who had yet to realize that 2016 was the year we had to start looking out for a fresh, hip new breed of Nazi wannabes, Milo Yiannopoulos came as something of a shock. Openly gay, extremely outspoken, and absolutely committed to a) building his brand, and b) spreading his employer Breitbart News’…

Maroon 5 had no idea the title of its new album is a Men's Rights slogan

Maroon 5 announced a new album yesterday, and while that would normally be cause for celebration among people who like largely inoffensive pop rock, this album announcement left people a little confused about the band’s intentions. That’s because the new album is called Red Pill Blues, which seems like a reference to…

The Fast And Furious beefs heat up again as Tyrese Gibson blames The Rock for delay

Yesterday, Universal announced that it was bumping Fast And Furious 9 (or whatever it will be called) from April of 2019 to April of 2020. At this point, the studio hasn’t confirmed anything about the movie, including who will direct it, other than that Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodgriguez are most likely returning. We…

Guillermo Del Toro gives his blessing to the Hellboy reboot

Development continues apace for Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot, which stars David Harbour as the (new) Son of The Fallen One.

Iron Fist is heading to Harlem in season 2 of Luke Cage 

In Marvel comics, Iron Fist and Luke Cage are famous best friends who run a superhero business together in Harlem, but nobody really gets along with Finn Jones’ version of Iron Fist on Netflix’s Marvel shows. The Defenders team-up miniseries tried to make Iron Fist a bit more likable, but there’s still a lot of work…

Elon Musk loves Rick And Morty, proving it is the TV show of mega-geniuses

At this point, the most pressing question about Rick And Morty is not if Beth is a clone or how they’ll top their excellent third season. It is, rather, whether or not the show can somehow transcend its reputation for fostering a fan base of insufferable, faux-intelligent, self-important “nerd culture” warriors,…

Trump meme message board draws the line at anime

The online discourse among Trump supporters and the “alt-right” took a hit earlier this year when Matt Furie, who created Pepe the stoner frog that’s become the sigil of the house of white supremacists, killed off his cartoon creation in an effort to stem the hateful tide. When that didn’t work, he took legal action…

Harvey Weinstein allegedly harassed women, demanded nude massages

The New York Times article that prompted film and TV mogul Harvey Weinstein to hire two celebrity litigators has been published, and it’s as explosive as you might expect. Entitled “Decades Of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein,” the article opens with actress Ashley Judd recalling an incident…

Here’s an exceedingly serious argument for why Lisa Simpson will be the next president

Up until about a year ago, a good portion of the country thought the idea of failed real estate mogul turned reality TV show host Donald Trump being the president of the United States wasn’t a plausible scenario. Looked at objectively, the whole premise sounds like a lazy dystopian shorthand of a knock-off Paul…
