Exclusive: After acquiring The Little Hours at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Gunpowder & Sky is set to release the quirky comedy about nuns gone wild in theaters on June 30, with plans to roll out to at least 50 markets. Written and directed by Jeff Baena, The Little Hours follows three nuns, Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci), who lead simple lives in their convent. Their world is disrupted when a young servant (Dave Franc… »
The cast of Warner Bros. and Legendary's highly-anticipated Godzilla: King of Monsters is still coming together, with another actor lining up a key role in the sequel. Straight Outta Compton star O'Shea Jackson Jr., the son of rapper/actor Ice Cube, has entered negotiations to play an unspecified role in this big-budget action thriller, that serves as a follow-up to the 2014 blockbuster Godzilla. While it remains to be seen how many more new characters will come aboard, it is believed that only one actor from the 2014 Godzilla will return.
Variety broke the news of this casting, and while no details were given for his character, he is just the latest to come aboard recently. We reported in January that Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is making her feature film debut with Godzilla: King of Monsters, with Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga coming aboard to portray her character's father and mother, »
Though he made his cinematic debut playing a younger version of his dad, O’Shea Jackson Jr. has actually displayed a lot of versatility. The Straight Outta Compton actor followed up his dramatic success in that music biopic with some serious Sundance recognition: He was named one of Variety’s breakout stars for his performance alongside Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen in the comedy Ingrid Goes West. Now Variety reports Jackson Jr. is heading to blockbuster territory for a role in Godzilla: King Of Monsters.
The sequel’s cast already includes Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, and Kyle Chandler. And Ken Watanabe, who starred in the 2014 film opposite Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Bryan Cranston, will reprise his role for the sequel. Godzilla: King Of Monsters is one of multiple projects on the horizon for Jackson Jr.; he’s currently shooting Den Of Thieves with Gerard Butler, Pablo Schreiber, and ...

The movie already stars “Stranger Things” stand-out Millie Bobby Brown, along with Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga. “Krampus” helmer Michael Dougherty is directing the project from a script he penned with Zach Shields.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, and Elizabeth Olsen starred in the 2014 “Godzilla” reboot, directed by Gareth Edwards. Sources tell Variety that Watanabe is the only original cast member likely to return for the second installment.
Alex Garcia will oversee the tentpole for Legendary. “Godzilla: King of Monsters” hits theaters on March 22, 2019, with the monster mash-up “Godzilla vs. Kong” slated to bow the following year on May 29, 2020.

Legion has been good at keeping its secrets, sometimes to an annoying level. Now though as we reach the end of the first season we come to the episode that provides most of the answers, setting us up for what appears to be an explosive finale.
With David (Dan Stevens) trapped deep in his mind, Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) is upping the stakes on taking over his body. With Lenny’s true identity finally revealed, Cary (Bill Irwin) and Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement) discuss how to defeat the new enemy while Syd (Rachel Keller) works to free the rest of the group, including David before it is too late.

Still Eligible: No.
Hot Streak: After nabbing one nomination in 2013 (Emilia Clarke) and 2014 (Lena Headey), “Game of Thrones” expanded in subsequent years to two nominations in 2015 and three in 2016 (when Maisie Williams snagged her first nod).
With “Game of Thrones” out of contention and the great Dame Maggie Smith’s “Downton Abbey” over, only two of last year’s nominees are eligible again in 2017: Maura Tierney in “The Affair” and Constance Zimmer in “UnREAL.” Both are coming off their first Emmy nominations, but both of their TV shows lost a bit of buzz in their follow-up seasons. Neither are guarantees (though certainly deserving).
So, who’s going to fill all these slots? There’s no shortage of options. »

Good news, everyone! This week’s Legion cleared up a lot about what’s really going on in David’s head — and also set the stage for a guns-blazing showdown in next week’s finale.
Things look pretty bad at the start: Kerry is still being chased by that creep Walter through the halls of Clockworks, while Lenny interrogates Nurse Amy about the day her family adopted David as a baby. (“What did he do with it?” she demands to know — “it” being a metal X insignia, it looks like. »
The Walking Dead’s Jesus and Maggie have known for a while that the day would come when they’d have to “handle” Gregory. But now that the Hilltop’s leader has gone so far as to threaten Jesus, the day might just have arrived. “They’ve recognized that it’s a bit more dangerous with him now,” Tom Payne told TVLine on the PaleyFest L.A. red carpet Friday. “I mean, he tried to give up Maggie and Sasha before.”

While an episode which is set back in the mental hospital may put the fear into many fans that this would be a weak episode, there really wasn’t anything to worry about. What we see is David being put in a protective reality, just a shame it is Lenny (or as we now know her, the Devil with the Yellow Eyes) that appears to be in control. What is interesting about the setting of this episode is how David’s reality uses a lot of »

Seven seasons into The Walking Dead, there are a few things that we all know about the show: 1. If a character who rarely has lines suddenly has a bunch of ’em, they’re toast. 2. If Daryl is in danger, we will worry as if he’s going to be killed off, even though he’s never going to be killed off. And 3. no matter how well-laid a plan is, it’s going to go awry. So it wasn’t humongously surprising that in Sunday’s episode, Sasha and Rosita’s plot to do away with Negan hit a snag before »

The Flash is slowing down.
“Next season we’re not going to have a speedster” as the Big Bad, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed at a PaleyFest panel for the show and fellow CW super series Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow on Saturday.

As for Barry’s current foe Savitar, whom Kreisberg said is part of this season’s “pitfalls” theme for the speedster? “We know who he is under there, and we’ve been planning this for a while,” the Ep assured the audience. »
The Performer | Aubrey Plaza

The Episode | “Chapter 6” (Mar. 15, 2017)
The Performance | As mischievous sidekick Lenny on FX’s mind-bending superhero drama Legion, Plaza often taps into that rich vein of cynical sarcasm that served her so well as April Ludgate on Parks and Recreation. But when Legion switched gears this week, it allowed Plaza to show off a whole new side to Lenny. (Two or three sides, really.)
With Syd trapped in a nightmarish alt-reality where she and the Summerland crew are patients in a mental hospital, the formerly loony Lenny stood in as their therapist. And Plaza »
This season of The Walking Dead has been building towards a big ol’ showdown between Rick and Negan — and we might not have to wait until next season to see it.
“The end of this season is very much the end of a chapter,” showrunner Scott M. Gimple hinted to fans at Friday’s PaleyFest L.A. panel. No, he didn’t come out and promise us a Rick vs. Negan fight to the death, but he did say the April 2 finale will be the start of a new era for AMC’s zombie thriller: “It’s about setting up this gigantic, »
Expect a Best Supporting Actress nomination for “Chapter 6.”
Two things have happened with Legion that surprised me. The first is that it’s only gotten weirder and weirder since the pilot episode, when I’d assumed it would level out and be clearer and have at least a slightly more normal narrative by midseason. The second is that Aubrey Plaza has gotten better — no, absolutely amazing — where I’d kind of written her off as an annoyingly overplayed internal voice for the main character, like “a batshit crazy Jiminy Cricket,” as Collider’s Haleigh Foutch perfectly described her.
Last night’s episode, “Chapter 6,” did actually clear some things up as far as confirming part of Plaza’s role as being an incarnation of The Shadow King, a villain from the X-Men comics Legion is based on, albeit without directly calling him/her that. We at least got clarification, after a return full circle to the mental hospital »

If there’s one show that’s taken the collective superhero fan loving world by storm, it’s FX’s Legion. The X-Men spinoff has captivated audiences in the little time it’s been on the air and has already been renewed for a second season. From the mind of Fargo’s Noah Hawley, Legion has taken a bizarre but almost “human” and “dark” look at a world we haven’t yet seen on television. The show’s stars Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza and Jean Smart are all expected to return in season 2. Marvel is naturally overwhelmed by the success of Legion with executive producer and Marvel

Aubrey Plaza is taking on new challenges with her role as Lenny Busker in “Legion,” and that includes things that might be outside her comfort zone. In the sixth episode, which aired Wednesday night, Plaza shows off her dancing skills in a montage that depicts her character hopping through different parts of David Haller’s memories. She employs a combination of striptease, burlesque, Broadway-style jazz, and just general chaos in a dance to “Feelin’ Good” by Nina Simone. The scene represents episode six in that it’s a departure from the rest of the series. At the end of episode five, »

Legion offers intriguing insights into where this all could be heading in another delightfully twisted episode...
This review contains spoilers.
1.6 Chapter Six
Primarily I’ve had nothing but positive things to say about Legion’s addictively disorienting first season, but I have criticised the show in the past for stalling the story. That ends tonight; this episode’s recess from the plot while David, Syd, and the Summerland crew are trapped inside David’s mind with The Devil with the Yellow Eyes is not only full of the stylistic flourishes that make the series great, but it’s also illuminating. This episode begs the viewer to look at the series from a different perspective while delivering key pieces of information and hints about where things might be heading. »
(Note: This post contains spoilers for the FX original series”Legion” through the March 15 episode.) Things are heating up on “Legion” as protagonist David (Dan Stevens) battles for control of his own head with the evil Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) — who this week dropped a bombshell that could tie directly into the “X-Men” universe. In Episode 6, Lenny traps David and his friends in a mental projection of Clockworks Psychiatric Hospital, the institution where David was being treated way back in the beginning of the show. In the last few episodes, “Legion” has been dropping more clues about who, or what, »

(Major spoilers ahead for the March 15 episode of the FX original series “Legion.”) As “Legion” moves on, we’ve gotten more answers, but even more questions about Lenny Busker’s true identity. Although the ultimate question is whether or not she’s human at all. In a conversation with TheWrap, Aubrey Plaza talked about playing the character. She mentioned the hardest part of playing Lenny was playing “someone that’s not even a human being.” So we asked her if she could confirm whether or not Lenny was human. Plaza was unsure about the answer, saying “yes” at first and then switching to “no. »
