The battle for late-night TV domination has been an ongoing one, but I think John Oliver has just taken the cake. At least for this round of “who can make the best joke about the closure of a wax museum of past presidents?”

Are all you pitches ready for one last round with the Bellas?
The first Pitch Perfect 3 trailer arrived online this weekend, giving us a much better idea of what the a capella group featuring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp and more are up to for what appears to be their third and final outing together. All of the Bellas have graduated college now (well, almost all), and they’re having some trouble getting jobs and staying motivated.
Desperate for some semblance of purpose, the Bellas decide to get together for an overseas USO tour that apparently also doubles as some kind of competition. But this is the first time the Bellas will be facing musical groups who don’t just make music with their mouths. So how is that going to turn out? Watch the Pitch Perfect 3 trailer below to find out.

While this year’s Academy Awards had a bumpy ending, it got off to an entertaining start with Justin Timberlake performing “Can’t Stop the Feeling.” It was a lively introduction for the Oscars. Timberlake obviously knows how to put on a good show. Maybe in a couple of years, he’ll be back at the awards show to perform another song from Trolls 2, which DreamWorks has scheduled for April 10th, 2020.
Below, learn more about Trolls 2.

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

The internet may be clamoring for Anna Kendrick to play Marvel’s Squirrel Girl, but it looks like the Oscar-nominated actress has her eye on a different superhero project. Kinda. You see, Kendrick stars in this weekend’s The Accountant with Ben Affleck, who just so happens to be the star and director of that Batman solo movie we keep hearing about. In a funny new video, Kendrick tries to convince Affleck to cast her as Robin in the upcoming film. Or Batman, she’s not picky.

This weekend brings Gavin O’Connor‘s action thriller The Accountant to theaters, giving us a second round of Ben Affleck action following his debut as the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The trailer promised an engaging thriller following an assassin under the guise of an accountant who also happens to fall on the autism spectrum. So how did the movie turn out? The consensus seems to be that the movie’s concept and plot are rather ridiculous, but that doesn’t stop the movie from being enjoyable while also garnering comparisons to Batman.
Find out what the first batch of The Accountant reviews have to say after the jump. Read More »
