Concerns about the spread of the new coronavirus strain known as COVID-19 have been sweeping the globe. The United States doesn’t have nearly as many cases as Europe and Asia, but the numbers are starting to grow, and concerns about a pandemic have prompted cautious behavior from some of the world’s biggest companies, especially when it comes to attending events with large crowds. That’s why Netflix, Apple, Amazon and Warner Media have all pulled out of the South by Southwest (SXSW) film, TV, music and tech festival, slated to start on March 13. That means all of the premieres and screenings of the movies, TV shows, and panels they were bringing to the fest have been canceled as well.
UPDATE: Starz and Lionsgate are skipping the festival too. Get the new details below with the rest of our original report. Read More »

Bombshell wasn’t quite as explosive as its makers would’ve hoped, landing in theaters in December not with a bang but with more of a quiet poof of air. However, there was enough wind under Bombshell’s sails to garner stars Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie acting nominations at the Oscars as well a hair and make-up win. But as the Jay Roach-directed dramedy gets ready for its home video release, Theron and co-star Nicole Kidman are speaking up in a behind-the-scenes featurette about the importance of telling stories of sexual harassment.

But of course, the plot at the center of Knives Out is a donut hole within a donut hole, so there’s still something to be figured out by detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), even if he’s not quite as good of a detective as he seems. But we’ll let the Knives Out Honest Trailer take it from here. Read More »
