Ticket to Paradise

Mega-stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts have both appeared in their share of romantic comedies – Roberts unquestionably held the crown for years America’s Sweetheart in the ’90s – but they haven’t starred in one together…until now.

The duo, who previously worked together on the Ocean’s trilogy and in Jodie Foster’s all-but-forgotten 2016 movie Money Monster, have signed on to star in Ticket to Paradise, which feels like a relic of another era – an honest-to-goodness rom-com from a major Hollywood studio that features A-list movie stars.

Twilight Zone reboot canceled

Bright and early this morning, I was awakened by the shouts of a newsie in the streets outside my home, yelling, “Extra! Extra! The Twilight Zone reboot canceled by Paramount+!” I can only assume this happened nationwide, so we’re probably all on the same page there. But in any case, that story is slightly more complicated than that shrill child made it seem. Jordan Peele‘s Monkeypaw and Simon Kinberg‘s Genre Films, the production companies behind the CBS All Access revival of the classic Rod Serling sci-fi show, issued a statement today clarifying that the show was not technically canceled – it actually ended on their own terms.

GI Joe TV show

Hollywood is desperate to squeeze all it can out of G.I. Joe, on both the big and small screens.

The latest example: Lady Jaye, an undercover operative within that universe, is now getting her own live-action G.I. Joe TV show, which is in the works at Amazon. Adrianne Palicki (Fright Night Lights) played that character in the 2013 movie G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but it’s unclear if she’ll be back to reprise the role or if someone else will be stepping into Lady Jaye’s…um, fatigues? Leather jacket? She’s had a bunch of different looks over the years, so let’s go with leather jacket.

Paramount+ TV Shows

If you love watching reheated versions of old intellectual property, it seems like you are going to absolutely lose your mind for Paramount+, the soon-to-launch streaming service from ViacomCBS.

MTV Raps (yes, seriously), Inside Amy Schumer, Rugrats, and more. Find out what’s coming to the service below. Read More »

The Mauritanian trailer

In Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies, Tom Hanks plays a lawyer tasked with defending a man accused of being an enemy of the United States. In The Mauritanian, it’s Jodie Foster‘s turn to do the same thing – but her client is actually innocent. The film tells the true story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi (Tahar Rahim), who was detained at the Guantánamo Bay detention camp for 14 years without being charged. Shailene Woodley (Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars) co-stars as Foster’s character’s assistant, while Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Doctor Strange) is doing another one of his unnerving accents. Check out the latest The Mauritanian trailer below. Read More »
