The Morning Show was one of the staple launch shows for the Apple TV+ streaming service, and after earning multiple Emmy nominations earlier this year, the show will be getting back to production to continue shooting its second season later this month. Of course, that’s assuming any complications from the coronavirus pandemic won’t hold them back, so the hopeful start date is subject to change. But the regular cast from the first season, including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell, will all be back. Read More »
No, you haven’t been caught in a multi-versal time warp: this isn’t the first time we’ve written about actor Billy Crudup potentially joining a feature film version of The Flash. Crudup was attached back in 2016, when Dope and The Mandalorian director Rick Famuyiwa was on board as the film’s director. Now, as the project has been delayed and gone through a rotating grab bag of potential filmmakers, It and It Chapter 2 veteran Andy Muschietti is firmly in the director’s chair, and Crudup is back in early negotiations to play the same character he was once slated to play lo those many years ago.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Cameron Crowe’s autobiographical movie Almost Famous. To celebrate the milestone, James Andrew Miller is delivering a limited podcast series called Origins: Almost Famous Turns Twenty, and it’s already yielding some interesting tidbits looking back at the film.
Almost Famous features Patrick Fugit as William Miller, a young aspiring journalist who gets caught up in the world of rock and roll in 1969. During his adventures on tour with a fictional band called Stillwater, he encounters a famous band-aid (or groupie) named Penny Lane (Kate Hudson), and sparks a friendship with the band’s lead guitartist Russell Hammond (Billy Crudup), all while his mother (Frances McDormand) worries back home. But Fugit almost acted opposite some even bigger names. Read More »

After the Wedding is a remake of Bird Box director Susanne Bier’s 2006 movie of the same name, and while I haven’t seen that version, this one is a muddled melodrama that never comes together in satisfying fashion.

One day, she receives a surprise phone call to come to New York City, because high-powered businesswoman Theresa (Julianne Moore) wants to provide funding for her orphanage. Soon after Isabel arrives, Theresa invites her to her daughter Grace (Abby Quinn)’s wedding, which becomes the setting for a revelation about the relationship between the key players. Read More »

There’s nothing like having super friends to make you a special superhero movie trailer based on a comic book you wrote when you were a 10-year-old nerd.
That’s what a flushed Jimmy Kimmel received on his 50th birthday, courtesy of Ben Affleck (his on-and-off boyfriend and actual superhero actor in the upcoming Justice League) and J.J. Abrams. They teamed up with a slew of familiar actors and comedians to create the ultimate superhero team: the Terrific Ten. The Terrific Ten are an invention of 10-year-old Kimmel’s mind, only existing on the worn-out pages of a comic book drawn by the prepubescent talk show host. Until last night.
