You’ve probably heard the horrifying details about the despicable actions of disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. But the myriad number of women who’ve accused him of sexual assault and misconduct haven’t had a visual platform through which they could fully elaborate on their stories – until now.
A new documentary called Untouchable gives these women – recognizable ones like Paz de la Huerta and Rosanna Arquette, less familiar ones like Erika Rosenbaum and Hope D’Amore, and more – the opportunity to explain what Weinstein did to them in their own words, and the result can be pretty powerful.

The raunchy side of comedy is usually reserved for the likes of high school and college. But the next generation is growing up faster and faster these days, and kids in middle school can be total jerks. That’s why we’re not surprised that Superbad writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have taken a nasty dive into adolescence by producing the R-rated comedy Good Boys. And it’s clear that the movie’s Bean Bag Boys (Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams) are not ready for everything growing up has to offer, especially when it involves, drugs, parties, and totally misunderstanding sex. Read More »
John Cena has been on the rise as an actor ever since he showed a completely different side to his talents with a supporting role in Amy Schumer’s romantic comedy Trainwreck. Since then, he led the animated film Ferdinand, starred in the surprisingly great Blockers, tracked down Transformers in Bumblebee, and he’s joining the squad in Fast and Furious 9. But not all of his choices are going to be winners, as evidenced by the trailer for his next movie.
Playing with Fire is a new family comedy that finds John Cena playing a firefighter who takes a trio of kids under his wing after rescuing them from a fire. For some reason, he’s legally bound to take care of these kids until their parents get back from…somewhere. It doesn’t matter, because this looks absolutely atrocious. Read More »

It’s been three years since Nickelodeon announced it would be digging into the ’90s for a nostalgic revival of the beloved animated series Rocko’s Modern Life in the form of a TV movie. The show remains one of the most beloved NickToons from the kids cable network’s heyday, and fans have been patiently waiting for the TV movie. Thankfully, they won’t have to wait much longer.
Rocko’s Modern Life Static Cling was meant to arrive last year, but when 2018 came and went without the return of Rocko, Spunky, Heffer, Filburt, and the rest of the gang, we knew something was amiss. But earlier this year we learned Netflix was picking up the TV movie, and now we have a teaser that lets us know it will arrive on the streaming service in August. Watch the Rocko’s Modern Life Static Cling teaser below. Read More »
Night Hunter was stuck between a rock and a hard place: go with a tantalizing, vague title like Nomis that would probably get mispronounced to hell, or adopt a generic, hyper-masculine title like Night Hunter. The David Raymond film obviously went with the latter.
The thing about a title like Night Hunter is that it’s both too specific and too vague — sure, it’s about a person who hunts at night, but what does that mean? In this case, the hunter in the title refers to a serial killer who at the beginning of the film is arrested — but that doesn’t stop him from taking more lives with every passing second, despite the efforts of Henry Cavill, Alexandria Daddario, and Ben Kingsley. Watch the Night Hunter trailer below.

The drama (not a comedy!) stars the trio as the wives of mobsters who decide to take the Irish mafia’s matters into their own hands. Watch The Kitchen trailer below.

The 1920s weren’t as buttoned-up as modern day audiences would believe: skirts were shortening, bohemians were thriving, and literary icons were embarking on lesbian affairs. The latter is the subject of Vita & Virginia, the upcoming historical drama starring Gemma Arterton and Elizabeth Debicki as writers Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, respectively, who fall in love against the backdrop of high society 1920s England.
