Cars 3 Cast - Natalie Certain

This summer brings the third installment of the Cars franchise. While the Pixar Animation film series is a monster in the merchandise department, it hasn’t been all that beloved by critics and general audiences. Many will contend that the movies are intended for kids, so that’s not a big deal, but that hasn’t stopped most of the rest of Pixar’s movies from being top notch pieces of animated cinema.

The good news is that what we’ve seen from Cars 3 so far has been more than intriguing. The trailers give the feel of an aging athlete drama with Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) not being the young hotshot racer that he used to be. In addition, the film will boast some new characters who will be voiced by Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Lea DeLaria, and you can see them below. Read More »

Confirmation trailer

As President Obama looks to fill the spot left behind by Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court — and as the nation braces itself for the drama and controversy that’s sure to follow — HBO is looking back at a very contentious Supreme Court appointment from the not-too-distant past. In 1991, then-president George H.W. Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to replace the retired Thurgood Marshall. During Thomas’ confirmation hearings, a former colleague of his, Anita Hill, testified that he’d sexually harassed her years earlier.

Hill’s accusations sparked a firestorm of controversy, inspiring loud conversations about gender equality and women in the workplace — conversations that are still going on today. Now, 25 years later, HBO is revisiting that watershed moment with Confirmation, a new movie directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and starring Kerry Washington and Wendell PierceRead More »
