Last night brought the Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live, and thanks to host Chance the Rapper, the energy was high. Unfortunately (or fortunately in some cases), the number of technical mistakes, gaffes, and line flubs were also high with almost every single live sketch having some kind of error. Since the show is live, there are usually a couple missteps here and there, but this show was riddled with them. Thankfully, they didn’t always make the sketch worse. In fact, in a couple cases, they helped make the sketch much better than it otherwise might have been. It was kind of weird how well it all worked.
Let’s run through the best and worst sketches from the Chance the Rapper hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

There’s a lot of sandy ground to cover with Dune, and one movie might not cut it. Director Denis Villeneuve‘s star-studded Dune adaptation is currently filming, but will there be more to come? Villeneuve has hinted in the past that he’d like to make more than one film to bring Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic to life, and as of now, that seems to be the plan. In a new interview, Legendary CEO Joshua Grode confirms that at least one Dune sequel is being planned – although that could change.

This is starting to get ridiculous. Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune cast seems to grow every single day, and every single announcement features another fine looking specimen. The latest: Jason Momoa, who recently rode box office waves in Aquaman. Momoa is in talks to take on the role of Duncan Idaho, a “fierce swordsmaster.” Duncan Idaho doesn’t exactly sound like a futuristic name, but let’s just go with it anyway.
