brain on fire trailer

After making November Criminals and an adaptation of Susannah Cahalan‘s memoir, Brain on Fire, back-to-back, actress Chloë Grace Moretz dropped out of all future projects. The actor wanted to slow down and reassess her choices. We’ve seen her in quite a few roles over the last few years, but right now she only has a handful of movies coming up, such as the Suspiria remake and writer-director Gerard Barrett‘s Brain on Fire, which co-stars Tyler Perry, Jenny SlateRichard Armitage, and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Below, watch the Brain on Fire trailer.

Game of Thrones season 7

Game of Thrones season 7 still doesn’t have an air date. While we wait for that all-important piece of news, all of the available space has been filled by the show’s stars informing us that the penultimate season of HBO’s flagship series will blow our minds, to various degrees. Today’s latest round of mind-blow updates come to us from series stars Alfie Allen and Jacob Anderson, who throw around words and phrases like “absolute chaos,” “pressure cooker,” “awe,” and yes, “blow a lot of people’s minds.”

fate of the furious running time

Part of the charm of the Fast and Furious series has been its willingness to throw caution to the wind and give in to its every indulgence. Once the movies began to leave their humble street racing origins in the dust, they began to fly. Literally. Because they were driving cars off skyscrapers and so on. And it’s starting to sound like the running times may be catching up to the series’ increasingly grandiose scale. If the internet is to be believed (and the internet is never wrong and has never influenced the world in a negative or unfortunate way), The Fate of the Furious is long enough to demand an overture and an intermission.

Rose Byrne and Oprah Winfrey in The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Even if you’ve never heard of Henrietta Lacks, there’s a good chance she’s impacted your life in some way. In 1951, while Lacks was undergoing treatment for cervical cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital, her cells were harvested without her knowledge or consent and used to create HeLa cell line. While Lacks herself passed away that same year, her cells have lived on, aiding in many medical breakthroughs including the polio vaccine.

While the scientific community has been aware of Lacks’ unwitting contribution for decades, her story became much more widely known to the general public in 2010 thanks to The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a nonfiction tome by Rebecca Skloot. Now it’s going the way of many other bestselling books, and becoming a movie. Oprah Winfrey leads HBO’s feature film as Henrietta’s daughter Deborah, and Rose Byrne as Skloot. Hamilton‘s Renée Elise Goldsberry plays Henrietta. Watch the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks trailer below. Read More »

Veep Season 6 teaser

Veep is currently facing a very strange challenge that the show couldn’t possibly have seen coming when Armando Iannucci first created it several years ago: namely, the fact that real-life politics has far surpassed any twisted insanity that a bunch of TV writers could ever come up with. Since the inauguration, each day has yielded enough blunders to account for a season’s worth of storylines on Veep, and our actual politicians are starting to make Jonah Ryan look smart and decent. And none of this is really funny — it’s actually kind of terrifying.

So will Veep season 6 try and reckon with our new (and horrible) political reality? Will it accidentally comment on recent events? (You know, the way every movie seems to be “about Trump” now despite the fact that all of them were conceived and shot well before the 2016 election.) Or will it blithely continue on, as oblivious to the real world as its characters are? We’ll find out when Veep returns in a couple of months, but in the meantime here’s a trailer to remind you of where we left off with Selina Meyer. Watch the first Veep season 6 teaser below.

Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Daisy Ridley may have been new to movie stardom circa Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but by now she’s an old pro at dodging questions. Watch as shrugs that she doesn’t think Rey’s parentage is really “so important,” or coolly deflects further inquiries with “curiosity is a wonderful thing.” Unfortunately for her, though, fans and journalists aren’t the only ones she has to watch out for.

For the past several weeks, Josh Gad — Ridley’s co-star in the Murder on the Orient Express remake — has been trying his damnedest to get some Star Wars: The Last Jedi answers from her, even enlisting the help of Judi Dench. So far, Ridley’s resisted. But can she continue to stand firm against all of Gad’s famous friends? Find out below.  Read More »
