Hollywood perfected the biopic template with dozens of movies based on the lives of famous country, pop, and rock musicians. Now, that template has reached hip-hop and it continues to work like a charm. Following in the footsteps of 2009’s Notorious and 2015’s Straight Outta Compton, All Eyez on Me looks to bring the life of rapper Tupac Shakur to the big screen. Despite the shift in genre, this movie looks very much like a cousin of movies like Ray and Walk the Line, for better and for worse.
So let’s take a look at the new trailer, shall we?

Sad news came yesterday when we heard that legendary comedian Don Rickles had passed away. In recent years, Rickles had become known as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in pretty much every piece of Toy Story multimedia. But his true legacy lies in stand-up comedy as one of the most gifted insult comics to ever take the stage. Rickles was so good that audiences were never really sure if he was only joking, often turned off by his brash sense of humor, which kept him from becoming a huge star of film and TV.
Don Rickles once had a short-lived NBC program that only lasted a season, but that didn’t stop AARP Studios from giving him his own show called Dinner with Don, where he sat down for a meal with some of today’s biggest names in film and television. In honor of the late comedian, AARP wanted to showcase the charm and endless wit of Don Rickles by teasing the TV series.

Anne of Green Gables was a literary staple of many a girl’s childhood (including mine) and received the pitch-perfect adaptation in the form of the 1985 Canadian two-part miniseries starring Megan Follows as Anne With An “E” Shirley. So it’s hard to imagine that Anne, the Netflix series adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel, will live up to that legacy.
But with the new Anne, played by wide-eyed newcomer Amybeth McNulty, spunkily declaring, “Girls can do anything a boy can do – and more!” in the recently released trailer, it’s clear that the Netflix re-imagining will bring the beloved Canadian orphan into the modern age. Hit the jump to watch the Netflix Anne trailer.

We have good news, and we have bad news.
The bad news is that FXX has officially canceled the comedy series Man Seeking Woman after three seasons after the ratings just weren’t strong enough to support another season of the series.
The good news is that you can take solace in knowing that the second season of Aziz Ansari‘s Netflix series Master of None is just over a month away, and a new trailer gives us some more insight into what’s in store for Dev after the first season finale took everyone by surprise in the fall of 2015.

We’ve seen a handful of sci-fi movies take the found footage approach: Cloverfield, Europa Report, Apollo 18, the list goes on. I thought we might have reached “peak found footage” a few years ago, but a new trailer for a film called Phoenix Forgotten indicates that the trend hasn’t completely vanished.
What has disappeared, however, are the characters at the center of this film, which is based on the true story of the “Phoenix Lights,” one of the most widely-reported UFO sighting in American history. Watch the new Phoenix Forgotten trailer below. Read More »
Spike usually doesn’t have much to offer in the vein of quality entertainment, but the one worthwhile endeavor they do bring to the table is their ongoing series of feature length documentaries. The network has examined pop culture sensations such as Chris Farley and Johnny Cash, and now their latest documentary shines a light on the life and death of Heath Ledger.
The star of The Dark Knight died tragically in 2008 before his performance as The Joker was seen by audiences, but it was a role that would be one of the pinnacle pieces of his all too short career. I Am Heath Ledger takes never before seen footage from the actor’s personal video collection, interviews with famous friends and colleagues, and more to create a portrait of a talented young man who was taken from us all too soon.
Watch the I Am Heath Ledger trailer after the jump.

We are truly living in a television renaissance. Yesterday we were talking about the early reviews for Better Call Saul, and now today we have a new extended trailer for Fargo season 3. The Leftovers and Silicon Valley are returning shortly on HBO, and Twin Peaks, House of Cards, Preacher, Penn & Teller: Fool Us and Game of Thrones are returning over the summer. And we got some promising newcomers from American Gods, GLOW and Dear White People. Remember when Summer television season sucked?
FX has released a Fargo season 3 extended trailer, and if you aren’t excited about this series after watching these two minutes, then I just don’t know if there is any more I can do to convince you to give it a shot.

Now that Iron Fist is available to watch on Netflix, we have shows for all The Defenders available to stream. However, all we’ve seen of the street-level heroes together are images of Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) that were released earlier this year. That changed today.
The official Netflix YouTube channel revealed a short video simply titled “Midland Circle Security Elevator B”, which doesn’t sound like anything interesting at all. But then you notice who can be seen inside that elevator: The Defenders. It’s a rather mundane first look at our heroes together on screen for the first time, but it appears that the release date and a viral website are also revealed in the tease.
Watch the teaser and find out The Defenders release date below. Read More »

Britt Robertston fought for the future in Tomorrowland, found sappy romance in The Longest Ride, and came of age in The First Time. Now she’s going to become a self-made entrepreneur by flipping clothes in the same way that people flip houses.
Girlboss, a new Netflix series based on Sophia Amoruso‘s autobiography of the same name, tells the story of a young, feisty girl (Robertson) who had no direction in life, but used her passion for fashion to create a business selling clothes on eBay, the kind of clothes that you’d find in Goodwill that are secretly worth hundreds of dollars more than the thrifty price tag.

One of the buzzed about titles from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival this year was Ingrid Goes West, a dark comedy about a girl (Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation) who lives vicariously through those she follows on Instagram and has delusions of her friendship with them. The film was one of the many that got picked up from the festival this year, and now you can watch the first Ingrid Goes West trailer to see what you have to look forward to. But beware, because this is a red band trailer, due to one particularly inappropriate word being used rather viciously. Read More »
