Hocus Pocus reunion photo

For decades, fans of the 1993 family-friendly Halloween movie Hocus Pocus have been clamoring for a sequel. A follow-up film was finally announced last year, and though original cast members Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker have said they’re interested, there hasn’t been an official announcement confirming that they’re on board.

But now they’re here with a bit of a Halloween surprise. Don’t set your hopes too high: it doesn’t seem as if director Adam Shankman’s new movie has been filming during quarantine, and there’s no announcement about it making a triumphant debut on Disney+ in time for All Hallow’s Eve this year. But perhaps this will be enough to get fans in a good mood: Bette Midler has shared a new photo of the three co-stars back in costume once again for an upcoming reunion. Read More »

The Politician Season 2

The first season of Ryan Murphy‘s dramedy series The Politician followed the exploits of the ambitious Payton Hobart (Ben Platt) as he campaigned to become student body president in a Santa Barbara, California high school. It was full of satirical political back-stabbing and double-crossing, not to mention plenty of morally and ethically questionable decisions. The end of the first season paved the way for a college-aged Payton to take it to the next level by becoming a young candidate in the New York State Senate race, and it looks like that race is going to get dirty.

The Politician‘s second season picks up where the first season left off as Payton is in the thick of his campaign against Dede Standish (Judith Light), the Senate Majority Leader who now finds herself at the center of a scandal that leaves her vulnerable to defeat. But she has her loyal Chief of Staff, Hadassah Gold (Bette Midler), at her side, and they’re not going to let this kid get the better of them. See how the political mudslinging begins in The Politician season 2 trailer below. Read More »
