The Greatest Beer Run Ever, Peter Farrelly‘s Green Book follow-up that reunites him with star Viggo Mortensen, just added another cast member to help out with the titular beer run. Dylan O’Brien is in negotiations to take the lead role in the film, with Mortensen set for a supporting part.

So, you’ve brought someone home with the intention to “Netflix and chill.” But as you fire up your Netflix app on your iPad to find something to put on in the background, your “Continue Watching” row pops up. You try to quickly scroll past it, but it’s too late: you glance over at your would-be romantic partner and notice that they have a horrified look on their face, because they noticed that the three most recent things you watched were embarrassing as hell. So you sigh and do the only thing you can do in this terrible situation: as your would-be partner leaves, you both solemnly agree to never see each other again. Thanks a lot, Netflix.
But those were the old days. Now, Netflix has rolled out an update for users who access the app on Apple device that allows you to remove those pesky, unwanted movies and shows from your “Continue Watching” row, saving you untold amounts of future embarrassment and annoyance. Thanks a lot, Netflix! Read More »

HBO Max has just grabbed the worldwide rights to the film, which will debut on the streaming service late this summer. Read More »
