coco clip

The Day of the Dead is nearly upon us, but before the festivities can start, we need to know more about Coco. The new Pixar film that follows a young Mexican boy named Miguel who accidentally finds himself stuck in the Land of the Dead, Coco is as much a love letter to the Mexico as it is to the holiday that the entire country celebrates in October.

Coco will be released a little after the actual Day of the Dead, which takes place from October 31 through November 2, but Pixar has dropped some charming clips and featurettes to get us in the festive mood.

Sicario 2 update

Sicario, the title of Denis Villeneuve’s 2015 suspenseful border thriller, is Spanish for “hitman.” The title of the upcoming sequel, Sicario 2Soldado, translates to “soldier” – which is appropriate, considering it focuses on Josh Brolin‘s morally dubious Department of Justice agent and Benicio del Toro‘s equally mysterious assassin from the first film. (Sorry, Emily Blunt.)

Production on the movie has already wrapped, and while doing press for a different film, Brolin spoke a bit about what we can expect from the follow-up, including that it’s “extremely tense.” Sounds good to me.

william shatner star trek discovery

A William Shatner Star Trek Discovery cameo is in the works…in William Shatner’s mind. The actor, who originated the role of Captain Kirk on the 1960s Star Trek series and went on to reprise the role in seven more feature films, is eager to return to the character. And if that means defying Kirk’s death in Star Trek: Generations, then so be it.

Because Shatner has an idea to bring his Captain Kirk back on deck in CBS All Access’ new Star Trek TV series.

Fastest Binge-Watched Shows

Netflix is notoriously secretive when it comes to their viewership numbers, but the streaming service occasionally feeds the hungry press a few statistics to keep us satiated (like when they revealed that Adam Sandler’s western “comedy” The Ridiculous Six was the most-watched movie in Netflix history less than a month after it came out). The latest bread crumb they’ve tossed to the eager masses: Netflix has unveiled the five fastest binge-watched shows on the platform, and I realize this is a hacky thing to say, but the winners may truly surprise you. Truly!

Game of Thrones fan theory

Game of Thrones‘ seventh season certainly left fans with a lot to talk about – and it’s a good thing, too, since we probably won’t see the eighth and final season until sometime in 2019.

Read on to find out what to expect from Game of Thrones season 8. Read More »
