For the most part, Love Actually is a beloved holiday movie, even though there are those who have started to express their hate for the movie as time has gone on. Personally, as cheesy as it is, I think it’s quite the charming romance featuring a fantastic ensemble cast from across the pond that includes Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy and many more. Now we’ll get to see what all those characters are up to 14 years later in a Love Actually sequel, but it’s not exactly what you think. Find out the details after the jump. Read More »
Before Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust) return for season two of Love, Netflix decided to share the good news: they’ve already renewed the Judd Apatow-produced series for a third season. We’re already guaranteed more time with these charming but flawed characters.
But before we see the current state of their relationship, another show — an entirely different show — premieres on FX. That series is called Feud: Bette and Joan, which you can watch a new trailer for.
Below, watch a full Love season two preview and the Feud: Bette and Joan trailer.

The 2017 Sundance Film Festival came and went last month, and some of the /Film crew was up in the mountains to see the latest offerings in independent cinema. Our favorite movie from the festival ended up being The Big Sick, the remarkably true and touching story of how comedian Kumail Nanjiani and producer Emily V. Gordon met and fell in love. The film was picked up by Amazon for distribution in a major $12 million deal, and now The Big Sick release date has finally been set for this summer. Read More »

Netflix announced a whole bunch of upcoming release dates last week, but leave it to Titus Andromedon to be fashionably late. On the bright side, this means he gets to capitalize on the renewed buzz surrounding Beyoncé’s Lemonade following her showstopping performance at the Grammys last night — because, naturally, the first Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 teaser has him doing his very best knockoff rendition of “Hold Up.”
Watch the first official Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 teaser, which also reveals the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 premiere date, below. Read More »
Almost three years ago, James Franco optioned the rights to Greg Sestero‘s book The Disaster Artist, which the actor wrote about the experience of making The Room. The Room, of course, is director/writer/star Tommy Wiseau‘s cult midnight classic, a movie made with significantly more passion than skill. While we were hoping to see Franco’s film and Zeroville out last year, Franco’s behind-the-scenes look at The Room is debuting next month at South by Southwest.
Before The Disaster Artist premieres, there’s a new pic of Franco brothers from the film. Below, check out The Disaster Artist photo.

In 1979, an inventor/entrepreneur by the name of Scott Olson patented an idea for single-line roller skates. Not long after, with the help of his two brothers, Olson began to manufacture something called “Rollerblades.” With a sleek design and fun neon colors, these inline skates appealed to a generation of leisure sports enthusiasts.
By 1987, inline skating had grown into a $10 million market. And by 1994, that number had skyrocketed to $650. Unsurprisingly, in the midst of this boom, a couple of producers thought it would be wise to make a movie centered around rollerblading; specifically, a movie centered around a rollerblade-lovin’ California teen who suddenly finds himself exiled to Cincinnati. That movie was called Airborne and that teen was played by Shane McDermott.
Currently, McDermott is a real estate broker and artist living in Galveston, Texas. But he was kind enough to spend some time speaking with me about his acting days and the making of Airborne.

Alec Baldwin hosted Saturday Night Live for the 17th time this weekend, setting a record for hosting the most times, even more than Steve Martin. There was a lot of hype for this episode, mainly because people thought SNL would really tear into Donald Trump’s administration even more than they have been recently. The late night sketch series didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary to react to the hype, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a great show.
Even though Rosie O’Donnell wasn’t brought in as Steve Bannon, as many hoped she would, Melissa McCarthy returned as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, and Kate McKinnon added another political impression to her growing roster as well. Of course, Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Donald Trump, but another cast member also played the president in another fantastic sketch as well. You’ll see what I mean in our recap of the best and worst sketches from last night’s show. Read More »
