James Mangold's Logan followup will be about a giant kitty-cat

As the director of one of the most critically well-regarded superhero films in recent memory, Logan’s James Mangold pretty much has a blank check to make whatever movie he wants at the moment. (He’s already signed up for a spin-off focused on X-23, plus a cop corruption drama in the vein of his Sylvester Stallone…

Beastie Boys' Adam Horovitz "stand[s] behind the women" accusing his father of sexual assault

If you’re not familiar with the world of off-Broadway theater, you may not be familiar with the name Israel Horovitz. But you probably are familiar with his son, Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz, a.k.a.

Baby Driver tops John Waters' list of the best films of 2017

One person whose opinions on movies we always find interesting is John Waters, given how influential his personal trash-cinema aesthetic has been over the past five decades. It just speaks well to his taste, you know? Anyway, today Waters released his annual list of the top 10 films of 2017, and as you might expect,…

A limited series about Ronald Reagan is coming to USA

The disaster that is Donald Trump’s presidency might (hopefully) be souring people on the Republican Party and its well-known penchant for fucking everything up, but the USA Network is now putting together a miniseries that will look back on the good days when the GOP was still riding high and Ronald Reagan was in…

The New York Times' polite Nazi has now lost his job

Last Saturday, we reported that a New York Times profile on a polite and well-mannered guy in Ohio who happens to be a “Nazi sympathizer”—a.k.a. a Nazi—was met with an enormous backlash. Apparently, people in general just aren’t crazy about normalizing Nazis in high-profile New York Times stories that are ostensibly…

Bette Midler has the receipts on Geraldo

Geraldo Rivera shoved his big dumb mustache into the Matt Lauer sexual harassment scandal yesterday, earning the usual chorus of “Shut up, Geraldo”s from right-thinking people everywhere, and a somewhat more surprising “Whoa there, buddy” from his bosses at Fox News, who’d apparently stumbled across a Geraldo hot take…

Jason Momoa says Game Of Thrones' end will be "the greatest thing that ever aired on TV"

Game Of Thrones is famously careful about letting too many spoilers out, but apparently if you’re a former star of the show who has since gone on to play Aquaman like Jason Momoa, they’ll just tell you whatever you want to know. Momoa recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly, explaining that he had a chance to visit…

Goddamn it, we can't even have that Trump Twitter-deleting hero anymore

Like the sudden silencing of a dangerously racist car alarm, America experienced an unexpected moment of relief earlier this month when Donald Trump’s Twitter account was suspended. And while that respite lasted all of 11 glorious minutes, it subsequently gave us something even better: a hero, some rogue employee whom…

Watchmen screenwriter Alex Tse is developing a Super Fly remake

According to Variety, Sony has begun developing a remake of Super Fly, Gordon Parks Jr.’s cult blaxploitation hit from 1972.

Let's cringe our way through this 2012 video of Matt Lauer joking about sexual harassment on Today

Ah, 2012: A lighter, simpler time. Barack Obama was in the White House, Twitter was a platform for stupid internet jokes and annoying memes (instead of hate speech and presidential proclamations), and the sexual culture was such that a genial morning news show like NBC’s Today could run a long segment openly mocking…

The guy who temporarily deleted Trump's Twitter account has finally stepped forward to accept our praise

Earlier this month, Twitter users worldwide were granted a brief respite from the online reign of Donald Trump, when Twitter temporarily suspended his account for a handful of minutes. A few hours after Trump’s account was brought back online, Twitter revealed that the deletion wasn’t a computer glitch or human error,…

Bunheads, Agent Carter, and Cougar Town are heading to Hulu

Hulu’s gradual takeover of the streaming world continues, with Disney and ABC granting it the rights to a good selection of new-ish and classic-ish shows. The biggest names, at least as far as The A.V. Club is concerned, are probably Amy Sherman-Palladino and Lamar Damon’s dearly departed dancing show Bunheads, the…
