It’s taken me a while, but I’ve managed to recover from the televisual onslaught that was Game of Thrones season six episode nine, ‘Battle of the Bastards’. Spoilers will inevitably follow for this monster, this narrative titan of an episode, so get thee to Riverrun behind those walls if you haven’t seen it yet. If you have, perhaps your palpitations have stopped, or perhaps not. Either way, we can breath easy. The battle was won, and not in GoT‘s usual style by the worst Westeros has to offer. For once, David Benioff & D.B. Weiss have given us the justice we have so desperately craved for years now, even more than the day King Joffrey choked on his own smugness. Barmy Bolton is, at last, a goner, and if there »

In 2011, Alma Har’el won the Best Documentary Feature Award at the Tribeca Film Festival for her doc Bombay Beach. Now just five years later, Har’el is back with another documentary at Tribeca, called Love True. Grammatically it may incorrect but visually, it astounds the audience’s eyes with amazing aesthetics of the past, present, and future of three characters.
What makes the film remarkably poignant is not only the subject matter, but rather the story between Har’el and executive producer Shia Labeouf.

Just when you thought your young-adult-novel-loving self was going to be mourning the loss of the Hunger Games cinematic franchise for months on end, your friends over at the Divergent series showed up to help fill the void. Following a now-common practice, the book has been halved to make two separate films. (The Divergent Series: Ascendant comes out in 2017.) Allegiant will find protagonists Tris and Four escaping the enclosed wall — in a dreamy, Sigur Ros–y way, not a frenzied, Johnny Rotten way — that surrounds Chicago and leaving the city for the first time ever, only to discover what they find beyond the walls threatens all of humanity. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Zoe Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, and Miles Teller, and will be released on March 20, 2016. Watch the dreamy new trailer above, and the first one below.And if you want even more Divergent action, here's the film's initial teaser-trailer, »
