One Day At A Time makes a quick trip to the past to reveal season 2 premiere date

Netflix’s One Day At A Time reboot proved that Norman Lear’s issues-oriented sitcoms could stay true to their roots without looking silly among all the prestige-dramas and slick single-camera series of today. The artful dramedy, from Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, surprised audiences with its mix of…

MSNBC brings back Sam Seder after firing him over “alt-right” smear campaign

Earlier this week, an utterly disingenuous campaign to get MSNBC contributor Sam Seder fired over a 2009 joke tweet about Roman Polanski/rape apologists proved successful. Inspired by Mike Cernovich, who’s headed up such deliberately misleading (and harmful) efforts as “PizzaGate” and “date rape is not a thing,” a…

Samantha Bee posits that, just maybe, “shitty media men” couldn’t fairly cover Hillary Clinton

On Wednesday’s Full Frontal, Samantha Bee addressed the daily, incessant, eye-opening revelations about powerful male media figures being all manner of sex creeps by pointing out how Hillary Clinton was habitually described during her 2016 presidential campaign. Playing a clearly not difficult to find montage of media…

Alec Baldwin is pissed at Stephen Colbert and John Oliver for turning late-night shows into “grand juries”

Alec Baldwin’s attempts to quit Twitter don’t appear to be going very well; although he has, as promised, stopped using his old @AlecBaldwin account to vent his grumpinesses into the world, that’s just turned out to mean a lot more activity on the account that’s ostensibly connected to the Hilaria And Alec Baldwin…

Kathleen Kennedy says she'd "love for" Taika Waititi to direct a Star Wars movie

Star Wars films have become a much-coveted prize for up-and-coming directors in recent years, a shiny brass ring for guys—somehow, it’s always guys—like Rian Johnson, Colin Trevorrow, Gareth Edwards, Josh Trank, and Phil Lord and Christopher Miller to leap for, and then (more often than not) immediately slam back into…

All The Money In The World moves its release date to Christmas Day

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has pushed the release date of Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World—a movie that does not have Kevin Spacey in it, so don’t bring up Kevin Spacey—from December 22 to December 25. Apparently, this has nothing to do with any Kevin Spacey-related controversies (because he’s…

Eddie The Eagle's Dexter Fletcher to replace Bryan Singer on Bohemian Rhapsody

The reunited Pedro The Lion have announced a pretty hefty 2018 tour

Back in October, we reported on news likely to warm the heart of gentle indie rock fans everywhere: David Bazan, frontman for Pedro The Lion, announced that the group would be getting back together, playing much of the Christian-themed rock band’s early catalog in a series of shows. Now, Bazan has announced a hefty…

Jacob Tremblay, Christopher Lloyd, and Mel Brooks are starring in an animated movie

According to Deadline, famous kid Jacob Tremblay is set to star in a 3D animated movie with famous old people Christopher Lloyd and Mel Brooks (Kenan Thompson will also be there, but he’s sort of in between).

Man denied a marriage license by Kim Davis is now coming for her job

Trump may get most of the attention these days, but he’s far from the first politician to value hateful prejudices over the rule of law. In fact, some people today might not even remember the saga of Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky who was briefly jailed in 2015 because she ignored the Supreme Court ruling and…

Wendy's steps in, puts the "Is Twin Peaks a movie?" debate to rest

2017 is a weird time to be a brand. Where once the marketing arms of major fast food conglomerates were just expected to find inventive ways to say “Our square hamburgers will briefly stave off your body’s endless need for sustenance,” the fast food social media ecosystem has now become a much wilder place. Today’s…

James Mangold is making a Patty Hearst movie that probably won't have a giant cat

Last week, we excitedly reported that Logan director James Mangold was making a movie based on Katherine Applegate’s Crenshaw, a kids book about an imaginary kitty cat that is giant and also presumably fluffy and nice and a very good friend. It was the best news in a long time, because kitty cats don’t get enough…

The preshident of the Unoddedshates may have a shpeaking problem

The president of the United States is a talker’s job, one that, during this past election, was handed out based on who could land a funny quip on their opponent rather than having any kind of grasp of sound governmental policy. (Unfortunately.) Donald Trump is usually pretty good at that angry pitbull side of things,…

The New York and Los Angeles film critics have already picked their best movies of the year, and now their Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association are preparing to follow suit by announcing the nominees for the Critics’ Choice Awards, with winners of which will be announced…

The Last Jedi will pay tribute to Carrie Fisher's beloved dog Gary

It was Star Wars nerds who gave a name and extensive backstory to an off-the-rack werewolf mask, after all, so it should come as no surprise that those same superfans are currently combing over first-look photos from The Last Jedi in search of clues. And fansite Fantha Tracks has uncovered a fun one: An alien tribute…
