Riverdale season 2 episode 2 review: Nighthawks

Chris Cummins Oct 19, 2017

Archie begins to feel targeted while Veronica and Jughead deal with family issues in a largely expositionary episode...

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 Nighthawks

Oh man. That ending. Wow.

Before I tackle that shocking final scene, let's go back to the beginning. The start of this week's instalment is a seemingly simpler (though still kind of shitty) time for Archie and the gang compared to where we are when the credits roll. As the episode opens, Jughead's narration informs us that Pop Tate's Chok'lit Shoppe is the "heart of Riverdale." And indeed it may very well be. In fact, the main reason that Betty makes saving Pop's into her crusade du jour is that the restaurant seems to be »

For The Postseason: Joe E. Brown As Alibi Ike

14 October 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

If you’re a baseball fan, particularly if you’re a Dodgers, Astros, Cubs or Yankees fan, the real baseball season started this past Friday with the inauguration of the American and National League Championship Series. I’m a Dodgers fan, which means I’m among that group who, arguably, have gone the longest without the satisfaction/excitement/nail-biting terror of seeing their team in the World Series, the next step for whoever wins in the Nlcs. The Dodgers last appeared in the World Series in 1988, capping a memorable run with a championship by beating the Oakland A’s. That was 29 years ago. The Cubs are the reigning Mlb champions, having won last year’s World Series after a 107-year drought. And the Yankees, a mainstay of the World Series around the turn of this century, last appeared in an October championship series in 2009.

The only team to come close »

Jim Carrey Reflects On Batman Forever Rivalry With Tommy Lee Jones

3 October 2017 11:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While it continues to be one of the more divisive films to feature the Caped Crusader since its release in 1995, the fact of the matter is that there are still many fans out there who love Batman Forever. Personally, I didn’t hate it, but I’d much rather watch one of the movies directed by either Tim Burton or Christopher Nolan because, quite frankly, it was hard to take much of WB’s third crack at the Bat seriously.

So, if you’re of the same opinion as I am, then odds are that you didn’t take too kindly to how the villains were portrayed. Not to take anything away from Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones as actors, but their turns as the Riddler and Two-Face, respectively, were over the top, to say the least. In short, Carrey was playing Carrey and Jones apparently thought he was playing the Joker. »

10 Red Carpet Interview Fails

24 September 2017 12:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hey, we get it. How many times can one person be expected to answer stupid questions like, "Who are you wearing?" "Are you excited for tonight?" "What was it like working with so-and-so?" Before there's some kind of meltdown, let alone a bit of attitude? Call them angry, exhausted or just plain crazy, but there are plenty of quick interviews that simply went off the rails, regardless of whom was to blame. Today, we're studying 10 ridiculous red carpet interviews. And none of them went as planned. These things are bad.

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton

Long before Brangelina, there was Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton, who openly bragged about wearing vials of each other's blood as jewelry. Angelina even had that prominent "Billy Bob" tattoo with what looked like the dragon symbol of New York City Hardcore band Sick Of It All underneath. During a 2000 red carpet interview with MTV News, »

What Robin Almost Looked Like in Tim Burton's Batman Returns

20 September 2017 7:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tim Burton almost got to play with Robin. But he changed his mind and ditched that concept for his 1992 sequel Batman Returns. The movie was already stuffed with perhaps one too many characters, with the follow-up to 1989's blockbuster hit Batman introducing Penguin and Catwoman. While we wouldn't see Robin until 1995's Batman Forever, we now have an idea of what Tim Burton's Robin would have looked like.

Robin is an elusive character. When 1989's Batman was being produced, comic book fans warned that the character was too goofy for such a serious take on the material. And he was left on the sidelines. But Tim Burton toyed with introducing the character in his next movie. And thanks to Bart Sears Twitter, we have an idea what that may have looked like.

The movie brought Michael Keaton back as the caped crusader, and cast high profile actors Michelle Pfeiffer »

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com Tackles Pro Football Films

10 September 2017 6:44 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s the opening Sunday of the NFL, and what better time to celebrate the films that celebrate the sport that celebrate the ballers. Film history has a steroid-free stack of pro football films in all categories. Patrick McDonald, Jon Lennon Espino and Spike Walters of HollywoodChicago.com take on three prime examples.

The earliest known footage of a football game was a 1903 match-up between powerhouses Princeton and Yale, filmed by Thomas Edison. The earliest narrative films dealt with the college game, from Harold Lloyd’s “The Freshman” (1925) to the Marx Brothers in “Horse Feathers” (1932). An early example of a pro football movie is “The Cowboy Quarterback” (1939), which involves a scout for the “Chicago Packers” (gee, even in olden days screenwriters were lazy as shit).

Donald Glover Wraps on Han Solo, Shows Off His Lando Mustache

27 August 2017 2:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Woody Harrelson gave us our first look at Donald Glover's impressive Lando Calrissian mustache a few months back, but it appears that the 'stache was just in its infancy as Ron Howard has shared a brand-new picture of he and Glover from the set of the Han Solo movie and the facial hair has been stepped up a considerable amount. There are many iconic pieces to the Star Wars universe and one of them is definitely the sweet mustache of Billy Dee Williams that was first introduced in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back. That amazing mustache was used to sling Colt 45 back in the day with the popular slogan "It works every time" and has since gone on to earn legendary status.

The new picture of Glover on set comes to us via Ron Howard's Twitter account and it features some impressive facial hair from the young Lando. »

Ron Howard Says Donald Glover Is Wildly Impressive In Han Solo

26 August 2017 12:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lando Calrissian is a charmer. He’s the smooth-talking smuggler of Cloud City and long-time ally to Han Solo, and in 2018, he’ll be played by the equally-cool Donald Glover, the actor, writer, producer and musician who has risen through the ranks to become one of the hottest talents of the moment.

It is, in the words of Glover, the role of a lifetime, and the former Community star has already acknowledged the pressures of tackling such an iconic character in the past. Starring opposite Alden Ehrenreich’s infamous nerf-herder, we’ve yet to catch an official pic of the actor in costume – leaked set photos have unveiled key locations from the film, among other juicy tidbits – but as production continues, it’s only a matter of time before the first shots of the young Lando Calrissian surface online.

After all, we now know that Glover has completed his work on the Han Solo spinoff, »

Donald Glover Recalls Billy Dee Williams’ Words Of Wisdom Ahead Of Han Solo Movie

11 August 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lando Calrissian, the smooth-talking smuggler of Cloud City and long-time friend to the great Han Solo, is one of the undisputed mainstays of the Star Wars franchise.

In 2018, Donald Glover (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Atlanta) will don the cape and stache as the young Lando, and despite his best efforts at disguise (fake nose included), the prolific actor and producer was spotted holding a secret meeting with Billy Dee Williams in order to wean some tips and tricks on how best to approach the character in question.

When asked to recount the advice given to him by Williams during an in-depth piece by The Hollywood Reporter, Glover then whittled the actor’s counseling down to three words of wisdom: “Just be charming.” And we couldn’t agree more.

I was like, ‘I’ve always felt like this character could do this, and he represents this, and I kind of feel like he comes from here, »

Billy Dee Williams Only Had 3 Words of Advice for New Lando Donald Glover

10 August 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, director Ron Howard shared a new photo from the set that offered our first look at Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, with production continuing on the new Han Solo spin-off. Today, we have new details from the actor, about his first meeting with Billy Dee Williams. Back in January, just three months after he was officially cast as the young Lando Calrissian, LucasFilm had set up a secret meeting between Donald Glover and Lando Calrissian in Los Angeles, and now the actor has shed some light on what happened at this fateful lunch. While Donald Glover had apparently done his homework, it seemed to be rather unnecessary, at least according to Billy Dee Williams.

Billy Dee Williams revealed back in early February that he did in fact have lunch with Donald Glover, while clarifying his earlier, slightly controversial comments that he thought the producers should "leave Lando alone" in this movie, »

Donald Glover Admits Han Solo Director Shake-Up Worried Him: 'I Know I'm Not Your First Choice'

9 August 2017 1:12 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Donald Glover is not exactly sure what went down.

The actor-writer-musician, who plays Lando Calrissian in the upcoming and still untitled Han Solo Star Wars movie, covers The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, where he candidly admits that he was a little worried when he heard that the film's original directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, had been fired, with Ron Howard stepping in to replace them.

"Ron is such a legend, and he knows exactly what the vision for what he is doing is…[but Phil and Chris] hired us, so you sort of feel like, 'I know I'm not your first choice.…' And you worry about that," Glover explains. "To be honest, I don't know exactly what happened. I feel like I was the baby in the divorce, or the youngest child."

Billy Dee Williams Totally Spoiled 'Empire Strikes Back' in 1980 'Today' Interview

9 August 2017 12:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Oh, come on, Lando! 

Billy Dee Williams totally spoiled The Empire Strikes Back while promoting the film on the Today show in 1980. 

To be fair, it was not completely his fault.

The segment got off to a rough start when the person interviewing the actor couldn't pronounce "Calrissian," his character's last name. She then asked him about playing a "evil guy."

That didn't sit right with Williams, who felt he had to come to Lando's defense, which in turn totally ruined the Cloud City twist, in which he double-crossed Han Solo (Harrison Ford).

"He not evil," Williams began. "He's just »

Donald Glover Feels Like "the Baby in the Divorce" After Han Solo Shake-Up

For Donald Glover, playing young Lando Calrissian has come with an unexpected complication.

Stepping into the shoes of the iconic Star Wars character played by Billy Dee Williams was always going to be challenging, but behind-the-scenes drama on the Han Solo spinoff became public in June when directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired over creative differences with Lucasfilm.  

In this week's Hollywood Reporter cover story, Glover is opening up about the changes on set, which saw Ron Howard step in as director.

Having been cast three months earlier as Lando Calrissian in the eagerly awaited Han Solo spinoff movie, he was there, incognito with a pair of shades and a fake nose, to sit face-to-face in Los Angeles with Billy Dee Williams, the original Lando, for a top-secret torch-passing arranged by Lucasfilm.

Glover found himself frazzled and running behind, as he often is, and was more than a little nervous. Once the »
