‘It Comes at Night’ Makes A Surprise Appearance at New Horror Festival
Filmmaker Trey Shults was an overnight sensation after his debut film, the tense family addiction drama “Krisha,” won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival. His followup, the horror-thriller “It Comes at Night,” has also unexpectedly surfaced at a film festival — this time, by premiering in a secret screening slot as the closing night entry at The Overlook Film Festival, a new horror film festival in the Timerline Lodge in Mt. Hood, Oregon.
The A24-produced film marks a step up in production for Shults, who shot “Krisha” in his Texas home with members of his family. With a cast that includes Riley Keough, Joel Edgerton and Christopher Abbott, “It Comes at Night” revolves around the experiences a man holed up in a remote home with his family after a mysterious »

White House Correspondents’ Dinner 2017: Hasan Minhaj Eviscerates Donald Trump and Those Covering Him — Watch
No president, no problem.
Hasan Minhaj took the stage Saturday night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and delivered a model set for the annual event, even though the event itself was anything but ordinary. The “Daily Show” special correspondent delivered an eviscerating 25-minute speech, going after the usual targets, from the reporters in the room to the president and his staff, despite Donald Trump’s absence.
“I would say it’s an honor to be here, but that is an alternative fact,” Minhaj said. “No one one wanted to do this, so, of course, it landed in the hands of an immigrant — like it always does.”

‘Doctor Who’ Review: Racism and Privilege Are No Match for the Doctor in Chilling Episode
[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Doctor Who” Season 10, Episode 3, “Thin Ice,” contains spoilers.]
While the Doctor and Bill had some excitement in Regency England with some monsters during a Frost Fair (a celebration the day before a thaw is expected), that was just the framework for the richer character content that the episode delivered. Despite traveling through time and space with the Doctor, Bill only now really saw into the heart, er, hearts, of the alien Time Lord who looks human.
Again, “Doctor Who” created a one-off, disposable monster that we highly doubt will resurface on the show. Tiny, aka the Loch-less Monster, aka the Creature lurking in the frozen Thames, in the end wasn’t really all that scary. The symbiotic relationship she had with fish that were very similar to anglerfish — those with the scary mouths and bioluminescent lures »

‘The Godfather’ Reunion: Robert Duvall Imitates Marlon Brando’s Laugh and Other Highlights From Closing Night at Tribeca
The Tribeca Film Festival just closed with a bang. Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro headlined a discussion following back-to-back screenings of “The Godfather” and “The Godfather Part II” marking the 45th anniversary of the first film. It wasn’t just that formidable trio onstage: James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton and Talia Shire were all in attendance as well.
So, too, was Don Corleone himself. A photo of Marlon Brando in character overlooked the proceedings, reminding everyone at Radio City Music Hall (and the 10,500 people watching on Facebook Live) that he’ll always be the head of the family.
Taylor Hackford, who moderated the discussion, began by mentioning the film’s humble beginnings: “The Godfather” was never intended as a high-profile prestige picture. Paramount envisioned it as a “quickie” meant to capitalize on Mario Puzo’s novel’s best-seller status. Coppola elaborated, recalling that he first »
