Netflix zaps new life into Sean Bean's The Frankenstein Chronicles

3 hours ago

Remember when new takes on Frankenstein were the hottest thing in the entertainment industry? It was after everybody was making Wizard Of Oz stuff, but it ended a few years ago when Fox decided to change the name of a show about a dead cop coming back to life from Frankenstein to The Frankenstein Code and then Second…

After beating Roy Moore, Doug Jones walked off to "Teach Me How To Dougie"

4 hours ago

If we’re all being honest, a lot of people didn’t really expect Doug Jones—a Democrat—to beat Republican Roy Moore—an accused pedophile—in Alabama’s special election this week to fill Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat. Someone within Team Jones must have kept the faith, though, because they cued up a pretty solid track to…

Familiarize Yourself With The Other Star Wars Canon With This Massive ComiXology Sale

5 hours ago

I was never a comic book person growing up, though I was and still am a Star Wars person. But there’s no sense in not digesting everything that has the Star Wars name on it for the sake of staying a purist. Some canonical literature is fan fodder, and some is really, really good. Find what you like during this massive Star Wars sale from…

Christopher Nolan walks you through the most terrifying scene in Dunkirk

5 hours ago

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk is one of the year’s best films, a propulsive World War II film that’s been celebrated by both critics and, well, people who were actually there. There’s plenty about it to praise—its score, for example—but on first watch it’s the urgency and intimacy Nolan cultivates that gives the film…

The hero of Dilbert is now Dilbert's boss

6 hours ago

Given that today’s “funnies” aren’t found in the papers so much as they are Twitter threads and listicles, a cartoon like Scott Adams’ workplace satire Dilbert probably isn’t something you’re still following. And, if Miles Wray’s new piece for The Awl is any indication, this is a very good thing. Sure, we knew that…

An FCC commissioner tells Jordan Klepper that The Opposition to net neutrality has fake names, Russian accents

17 hours ago

Now that America has got that whole “Jesus Christ, can we just not elect a lawless, bigoted pedophile to the U.S. Senate!” thing more or less taken care of, it’s time for anti-Trump forces to look for the next exhausting but necessary fight. On a Tuesday where the late-night hosts—who tape in the afternoon—had to…

Jake Tapper breaks Moore spokesman's brain by telling him you don't need a Bible to be sworn in to public office

23 hours ago

We take our moments of joy where we can get them these days, whether it’s an occasional bout of presidential mush-mouth, or an Alabama Republican going slack-jawed with horror at a concept that’s so clearly, painfully outside his worldview that it appears to be breaking his brain. That’s what viewers of CNN’s The Lead …

Hey, at least the pirates want to watch Louis Ck's I Love You, Daddy

12 December 2017 3:01 PM, PST

In a plot point that wouldn’t have felt out of place on Louie—back when we were in any way comfortable watching Louie, anyway—Louis Ck’s much maligned, largely unseen new film I Love You, Daddy has suffered yet another indignity, as the film—which was shelved after allegations of sexual misconduct on the filmmaker’s…

New Bright trailer introduces the greatest orc love song ever written

12 December 2017 1:24 PM, PST

David Ayer’s Bright comes to Netflix in only 10 days, but everybody seems more excited about some other big sci-fi/fantasy movie that you actually have to leave your house to see. That movie may have laser swords and bird creatures, but Bright has at least one thing it doesn’t have: A horrifying metal ballad that is…

Philip is the worst and it’s unclear if The Crown knows it

12 December 2017 12:00 PM, PST

It’s almost hard for me to believe that Peter Morgan penned both this episode and the previous one, as the difference in how Philip is written couldn’t be more drastic. In “A Company Of Men,” Philip was a complicated, flawed, nuanced figure who seemed to come to realize the error of his ways and set about trying to…

Guillermo Del Toro developing a remake of '40s carnival noir Nightmare Alley

12 December 2017 11:54 AM, PST

Guillermo Del Toro just dropped The Shape Of Water, one of his most critically acclaimed movies in years, but he seems like the sort of guy who enjoys having a huge stack of things to work on at all times. So, according to Variety, he has already lined up one of his many future projects: A remake of the 1947…

Here’s the Star Wars indie film we never knew we wanted

12 December 2017 9:10 AM, PST

With the end of the current Star Wars trilogy on the horizon and Disney showing no sign that they want to stop making films that exist in that cinematic universe, it’s only a matter of time before we start getting more intimate Star Wars movies that deal with the smaller stories from a galaxy far, far away. Perhaps…

A giant monster targets Wakanda in this Black Panther: Long Live The King exclusive

12 December 2017 8:50 AM, PST

The hype for the upcoming Black Panther movie is huge, so of course Marvel is giving the character a comic-book push, debuting two new Black Panther miniseries in the months leading up to the film’s February release. Next month’s Rise Of The Black Panther is a “Year One”-style story about T’Challa’s early days as a…

Why Anheuser-Busch's new PR initiative might actually be good for beer drinkers

12 December 2017 7:44 AM, PST

In the dark, musty basement of craft beer nerdom, there exists a certain pride in hating Big Beer. “They’re The Man; they’re buying up all the craft breweries; they’re limiting our beer choices.” It’s an immovable stance for a vocal minority of beer drinkers, and it’s a flame that the industry group promoting small…

Esme moves the pieces of The Gifted in an eventful episode

11 December 2017 8:30 PM, PST

I don’t know a lot about the X-Men. I mean, I think of myself as knowing more than the average person, because I have seen all of the X-Men movies multiple times (even the bad ones), and own them all on disc (even the bad ones), and watched the ’90s cartoon series, and have read a some X-Men comics – never more than a…

A Twitter account has begun collecting men's reactions to "Cat Person"

11 December 2017 5:07 PM, PST

If you were on social media in the last day or so, you surely heard about “Cat Person,” Kristen Roupenian’s New Yorker short story about a young woman who has a particularly bad experience dating an older man—and if you haven’t been on social media, the whole thing probably seems fairly baffling. Some people love how…

Ernest Cline is working on a sequel to Ready Player One

11 December 2017 12:28 PM, PST

Ready Player One author Ernest Cline is a big fan of references to ‘80s pop culture, but it turns out that he’s also a big fan of striking while the iron is hot—or whatever the ‘80s reference equivalent of that old saying is. That’s based on the fact that Cline has now announced that he’s working on a sequel to Ready…

Tomorrow, break the internet and stick up for net neutrality

11 December 2017 11:40 AM, PST

The internet as we know it is in serious danger thanks to FCC chairman Ajit Pai and the entire Trump administration’s desire to put corporations ahead of citizens whenever possible, but the people who aren’t Verizon executives and actually like the internet as it is aren’t just going to give up. That’s where an…

Trump accusers demand Congress investigate their sexual harassment claims

11 December 2017 10:54 AM, PST

The moral reckoning going on in Hollywood that hopefully has no end in sight (not soon, anyway) has taken down former and current titans of the film industry, and now the world waits for the other coast to get its due. Unfortunately, Washington D.C. isn’t ready to clean house yet, certainly not when it could welcome a…
