15 hours ago
The new film finds the Bellas hitting hard times post-college, with the singers unable to parlay their music skills into careers: Rebel Wilson's Fat Amy is now a street performer called "Fat Amy Winehouse," while other Bellas have become juice smoothie peddlers or farm animal veterinarians.

24 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT
Stephen Colbert hinted at a potential 2020 presidential run during an appearance on a Russian late-night TV show.
Colbert, who is visiting Moscow for an upcoming segment on The Late Show, told Evening Urgant after some vodka shots, "I am here to announce that I am considering a run for president in 2020. I thought it would be better to cut out the middleman and just tell the Russians myself."
The Kanye-esque proclamation came after Colbert made numerous digs about the Donald Trump administration and their alleged connections to Russia. "To the beautiful and friendly Russian people, »

23 June 2017 6:02 PM, PDT
Game of Thrones may be leaving HBO following its eighth season, but another project from author George R.R. Martin will soon head to television: Syfy has ordered a pilot based on Martin's 1980 novella Nightflyers.

23 June 2017 10:46 AM, PDT
But on the Thursday episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the Today show host didn't exactly hesitate when Cohen suggested the pair role play and relive that tense, televised interaction as part of a "Clubhouse Playhouse" segment on the late night show.

Get in the Ring: How 'Glow' Recreates the Golden Age of Lady-Wrestling TV
23 June 2017 9:07 AM, PDT
No doubt about it: The 1980s was a strange time to channel surf. Those neon-tinted, big-haired, irony-free days have provided Internet curio-seekers with fodder for infinite terabytes of grainy, colorful ephemera. And one of the cornerstones of weird Eighties television was "Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling" (G.L.O.W. for short), an all-female pro-wrestling league whose exploits were filmed in Las Vegas and syndicated nationwide.
It's the type of retro-kitsch from the Reagan era could have vanished down the YouTube black hole – until Netflix resurrected it, sort of. The cult »

Kumail Nanjiani on 'The Big Sick,' Twitter and Surviving Our Political Moment
23 June 2017 7:27 AM, PDT
Most romantic comedies are selling a fantasy: flowers, Champagne, weddings that cost more than the budget of your average indie film. But The Big Sick, a rom-com that takes a long detour into random disaster, grounds itself in reality from the very first scene, when an emcee calls a young comedian named Kumail Nanjiani to the stage. The Silicon Valley star, playing a loose version of himself, dramatizes the decade-old period when he met his wife – the film's co-writer Emily V. Gordon. They fell in love, dated and broke up »
'The Bad Batch' Review: It's Social Rejects vs. Cannibals in Dystopia U.S.A.
22 June 2017 2:10 PM, PDT
If you can't build a Trump-sized wall to stop immigrants and undesirables from "polluting" America the Beautiful, just send them out into a wasteland outside of Texas to fend for themselves. That's the premise driving The Bad Batch, a dystopian fable from writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour, whose stunning 2014 debut feature – an Iranian feminist vampire western called A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night – showed promise that this follow-up only partially lives up to.
The filmmaker puts the focus on society's rejects, each tattooed with a "bad batch" number and then »

Watch Samantha Bee's Sanity Vanish Beneath Trump's Weird Words
22 June 2017 6:39 AM, PDT
Turning the Full Frontal set into a Twilight Zone-esque fever dream, Bee – and a turtlenecked chorus of grammar nerds – did poke fun at Trump's ramblings and his tenuous grasp on the English language, but they focused more on his administration's dangerous and willful warping of it.
For instance, Bee noted how Trump accused former FBI Director James Comey of being a "leaker »
John Oliver, HBO Sued for Defamation by Coal Magnate
22 June 2017 5:55 AM, PDT
The legal action came quickly following Sunday's episode of Last Week Tonight, which focused on the struggles of the coal industry and singled out Murray for failing to protect the safety of his miners after one of his mines in Utah recently collapsed, killing nine workers. Murray's suit alleges that Oliver and his various accomplices "executed a meticulously planned attempt to assassinate »
'The Beguiled': How Sofia Coppola Reimagined a Macho Seventies War Film
22 June 2017 5:38 AM, PDT
Up until a few years ago, Sofia Coppola swore she would never do a remake. Then her production designer, Anne Ross, brought Don Siegel's 1971 pulp classic The Beguiled to her attention – and the director saw a film ripe for retelling. A group of Southern belles are holed up at an all-girls school during the Civil War; suddenly, the young women and their headmistress have their isolated existence disrupted by a wounded Union soldier. Nearly half a century ago, Clint Eastwood's Corporal John McBurney behaved as if he had arrived at a brothel, »

21 June 2017 8:08 PM, PDT
Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers reunited on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday. The pair took on the alt-right, pro-Trump activists who attempted to disrupt Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar, in which Caesar appears to resemble Trump, last Friday in New York.
The former Saturday Night Live "Weekend Update" hosts fittingly resumed their classic "Really!?!" segment for the task. "Now let me get this straight. You waited in line to get tickets to a play you already hated. And then you watched it for »
'Fargo' Season Finale Recap: Trump Cards
21 June 2017 7:30 PM, PDT
For months now, Fargo has entertained us with bus crashes, air conditioner murders, Hollywood sleazeballs, bridge tournaments, fake sex tapes and interdepartmental police squabbles. All the while, creator Noah Hawley has dropped us into a place where bad dudes manipulate the culture via hacking, trolling and outright lies – nothing like the world you see outside your front door, in other words. But after all its spectacular violence, unapologetic wackiness and barbed satire, this season ultimately ends quietly and elliptically, just the way it began – with a scene where a government »

21 June 2017 12:42 PM, PDT
Jimmy Kimmel provided a platform for a recently silenced high school valedictorian to speak his truth on Tuesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! – and gave the young graduate a few words of advice.
"Here's a young man who could use a press secretary," Kimmel introduced the footage. "This is from a high school graduation in Exter, Pennsylvania, where the senior class president gave a speech that did not go over well with the faculty."
In the short clip, high school student Peter Butera stands before his family, friends »

The two-minute trailer opens with the denizens of Westeros – including Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) – seemingly preparing for what promises to be an epic battle not just for the Iron Throne but the very survival of all seven realms.

'Transformers: The Last Knight' Review: Michael Bay's Latest Is 2017's Most Toxic Movie
21 June 2017 7:33 AM, PDT
Yes, that's zero stars you see up there. Every time Michael Bay directs another Transformers abomination (this is the fifth), the movies die a little. Mark Wahlberg has announced that The Last Knight will be his farewell to the Bay franchise. Quoth the actor: "I get my life back."
Ha! Now Wahlberg knows how sentient film critics feel every time they exit another Bay travesty. Transformers: The Last Knight is all kinds of awful. It's also the worst of the series to date, which is saying something. The year is only half over, »
Why Daniel Day-Lewis' Retirement Is a Major Loss to the Movies
21 June 2017 6:20 AM, PDT
Daniel Day-Lewis has earned many accolades and awards over the last 35 years, but perhaps no one has more perfectly encapsulated this actor's appeal than comedian Paul F. Tompkins. Cast in a tiny part in 2007's There Will Be Blood opposite Day-Lewis, the stand-up comic later related what their first on-set encounter was like. "Now, I had been told that Daniel Day-Lewis was kind of an intense person," Tompkins says. "And he's really not. He's really … The Most Intense Person that has ever lived on Earth. He's not doing anything – he's »
