All the famous people got to see The Last Jedi last night

Look, we get that, most of the time, being famous is probably a big old pain in the ass.

But sometimes, even the most dour of celebrities has to admit that…

Jessica Jones gets a new trailer and a premiere date for season 2

Krysten Ritter’s super-powered investigator Jessica Jones was one of the better parts of Netflix’s big Defenders team-up miniseries earlier this year, but that show wasn’t quite as good as getting another full season of Jessica beating up overt metaphors for various forms of misogyny. Now, Netflix has finally…

TechCrunch reports that the iPhone mega-giant has entered a deal with…

Trump hangs his failing report card on America's fridge

There are few politicians better at the game of lowered expectations than Donald Trump, a man who could take a shit on the floor of the Oval Office, then nudge some poor intern in the ribs and give a halfway-convincing “Pretty good, huh?” But even Trump may have pushed his penchant for calling a D- “good enough” too…

Big Little Lies wrapped up perfectly, but HBO wants another season anyway

This year’s female-focused HBO miniseries Big Little Lies was successful, to put it mildly. It was nominated for 16 Emmys and won eight, including Outstanding Limited Series, so it’s not surprising that the premium cable channel would want to return to that particular well.
