Good news, Whovians: we now know exactly when Class will be in session. U.K. fans will be able to catch the Doctor Who spinoff starting October 22 on BBC Three. U.S. fans, unfortunately, will have to wait a bit longer, as Class won’t hit BBC America until spring 2017.
Whenever it reaches your country, though, you can count on the Doctor himself to help get the party started. Peter Capaldi is confirmed to appear in the Class series premiere, which is called “For Tonight We Might Die.” Patrick Ness (A Monster Calls) created the series and is executive producing with Doctor Who‘s Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin.

TV Land is moving forward with its Heathers anthology series. Today, the network ordered a pilot based on the 1988 cult film. For years, a remake and sequel were talked about or rumored, but back in 2009, it was decided television was where the modern update of Heathers would go. Directing the pilot is Leslye Headland (Bachelorette, Sleeping with Other People), whose name raises our expectations for this particular film to TV adaptation.
Below, learn more about the Heathers pilot.

In terms of new releases, it’s slim pickings out there this weekend. Oh sure, there are a couple of bigger films (Light Between Oceans and Morgan) and a handful of indies, plus some high-profile holdovers from earlier in the summer. But if none of those quite suit your fancy, how about revisiting a film you may have missed the first time around?
Lionsgate is putting its young adult thriller Nerve back into theaters across the country this weekend. You may remember it from its original July 27 release — it’s the one starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco as participants in an online game that’s “like Truth or Dare, minus the Truth.” But the really good news is that if you skipped it then and want to see it now, you’ll be able to do so for just $5.

Most people got to known Brianna Hildebrand for the very first time through her scene-stealing performance as Negasonic Teenage Warhead in Deadpool. But if you were at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, you might have seen her a bit earlier. Hildebrand hit the festival with First Girl I Loved, a tender coming-of-age drama directed by Kerem Sanga (The Young Kieslowski). Hildebrand and Dylan Gelula (best known as Xan on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) play two high school classmates who fall in love, but find their relationship threatened by forces internal and external.
While I did catch the film at Sundance, I didn’t have the opportunity to review this one myself, unfortunately. But pretty soon you’ll be able to judge it for yourself as it’s coming to theaters this fall. Check out the First Girl I Loved trailer below.

Andrea Arnold may be a British director, but her latest feature, American Honey, is about as all-American as they come. And to emphasize that point, she’s getting a little assist from that most American of musicians, Bruce Springsteen. The Boss’ “Dream Baby Dream” soundtracks the latest American Honey trailer, along with some voiceover reminding you that American Honey has gotten some really, really good reviews on the festival circuit.
As with Arnold’s Fish Tank, American Honey stars a total newcomer. Sasha Lane plays a troubled teen who takes up with a traveling magazine sales crew, falling in love with a particularly charismatic member named Jake (Shia LaBeouf). Running the operation is steely Krystal, played by Riley Keough. Watch the latest American Honey trailer below.

Shailene Woodley‘s Tris has overcome a lot over the past three Divergent movies, but not even she can overcome audience indifference. Following a weak performance for The Divergent Series: Allegiant this spring, Lionsgate has opted to skip theaters for the planned finale, The Divergent Series: Ascendant. Instead, the dystopian YA saga will conclude with a TV movie that will then launch a standalone spinoff TV series. Read More »
Following her breakthrough performance in True Grit, the future looked promising for young actress Hailee Steinfeld. Since then, she’s taken on a variety of roles ranging from the likes of satisfactory films such as Begin Again and Ender’s Game to more disappointing projects such as Three Days to Kill and Barely Lethal. But she really got a chance to show a different side to herself in Pitch Perfect 2. Now it appears we’ll get to see Steinfeld blossom into a more mature actress.
In what could serve as the spark towards a career that resembles something like the career of Chloe Grace Moretz or Elle Fanning, we have The Edge of Seventeen trailer. The film is produced by James L. Brooks, the producer of films such as Jerry Maguire and the writer/director of Broadcast News, Terms of Endearment and As Good As It Gets, and it looks like an outstanding coming of age story.
Watch The Edge of Seventeen trailer after the jump, but beware it’s a red band trailer with some NSFW language, but no nudity. Read More »
I wasn’t a fan of the Power Rangers television series when it aired — maybe I was a year or two too old for it, or maybe I was already over my Voltron days. Whatever the case, I haven’t found excitement for the upcoming Power Rangers movie. And then last month Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston signed on to the film as Zordon, a character that appeared as a giant floating head in a tube in the TV series. I thought, that’s interesting. And then a teaser poster for the film was released (you can see it right after the jump), which was not what I expected from this particular franchise. Okay, so maybe I am a little curious now to see what the Power Rangers movie will be.
And now we have Bryan Cranston talking about how the movie is wildly different from the 1990s television series, comparing more to a Dark Knight-style reimagining of the franchise.

The U.S. rollout of Microbe & Gasoline has been approaching so quietly, you’d be forgiven for not realizing Michel Gondry had a new film at all. But he does, and it’s coming to our shores this weekend, and based on the footage we’ve seen so far it looks pretty damn adorable.
Ange Dargent and Théophile Baquet play Daniel and Théo, or as they are better known, Microbe and Gasoline. They’re teenagers in a Parisian suburb who feel like total outcasts until they find each other and become fast friends. Soon enough, the boys hatch a plan to run away from home in a ramshackle car constructed out of junk to look like a tiny cottage. Audrey Tautou also stars, as Microbe’s mother. If you dig Gondry’s sweet, offbeat style, this looks like one worth checking out. Check out a new Microbe and Gasoline clip below. Read More »
