Elizabeth Warren Shoots Bill Maher Side-Eye When He Teases ‘They Don’t Like You, Pocahontas’

1 hour ago

Bill Maher gave Senator Elizabeth Warren a little Donald Trump-esque ribbing and all he got back was “side-eye.” The comedian and host of HBO’s “Real Time” had Democratic senator from Massachusetts in the hot seat Friday night to talk about her latest book “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class,” but he couldn’t help but sneak in reference to President Trump once again calling her “Pocahontas” earlier in the day while speaking in front of the NRA. Maher and Warren were talking about the tax plan the Gop presented Friday morning. »

WWE Studios Hopes to Jump Out Of The Ring With Thriller ‘Sleight’

2 hours ago

For much of its 15-year existence, WWE Studios has been mostly known as an outlet for low-budget action and comedy films starring Vince McMahon’s stable of pro wrestlers. But in recent years, the studio has been reaching outside of the ring to produce and distribute films that aren’t related to WWE talent, and this weekend it’s taking its biggest leap yet with “Sleight.” The thriller is WWE Studios’ first Sundance purchase; it is co-distributing with Bh Tilt, distribution wing of Blumhouse Pictures. Directed by newcomer J.D. Dillard from a script he penned with writing partner Alex Theurer, »

‘Chuck’ Review: Liev Scheriber Transforms Himself into the Boxer Who Would Inspire ‘Rocky’

3 hours ago

Liev Schreiber totally transforms himself into boxer Chuck Wepner in the conventional biopic “Chuck,” a movie about a man known for being able to take many punches. Wepner was nicknamed “the Bayonne bleeder” because he usually lost a lot of blood in the ring without getting knocked out, which is partly why he was picked by promoter Don King to fight against Muhammad Ali for the World’s heavyweight title in 1975. “Chuck” details Wepner’s home life before that famous fight and his relationship with his wife Phyllis (Elisabeth Moss), a postal worker who is continually getting angry about Wepner’s philandering. »

5 hours ago

Cheer up, fanboys — Warner Bros isn’t trying to strangle “Wonder Woman” before it even hits theaters. In fact, five weeks out from release WB is spending more to sell the first live action film featuring the iconic female super hero than it did for its last comic book outing, “Suicide Squad,” TheWrap has learned. On Thursday, a growing chorus of online fans and commentators began openly fretting about what they perceived as a lack of advertising and promotion for “Wonder Woman.”  “The lack of marketing worries me,” wrote Shana O’Neil at SyfyWire. “It worries a lot of people »

5 More Luxurious Ways Fyre Festival Attendees Could Have Spent Their $12,000

5 hours ago

The Fyre Festival in the Bahamas promised top models like Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski, and concerts from “Bad and Boujie” rappers Migos and Blink-182. But advertising can be deceiving, and in this case, attendees hoping for a little Coachella in the Caribbean ended up in leftover Un tents eating cheese sandwiches — and in some cases, trapped at the airport when trying to leave. All that for prices that reached upwards of $12,000. The planned two-weekend party — canceled before its first weekend even got underway — was so bad that rapper Ja Rule, who was one of the »

Scientists Are Calling for NY Times Boycott Over Op-Ed by ‘Climate Change Denier’

5 hours ago

Multiple scientists and climate change advocates are calling for a boycott of The New York Times after an op-ed that they felt pushed anti-climate change agendas. The Friday column, the first written by Bret Stephens for the publication, uses the argument that data doesn’t always convey reality to make the point that climate change isn’t definite, despite evidence that supports the claim. He refers partially to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run, chronicled in the recent book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” Authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes wrote that the campaign relied too much on data, »

5 More Charitable Ways Fyre Festival Attendees Could Have Spent Their $12,000

5 hours ago

The Fyre Festival in the Bahamas promised A-list models like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid and music from the likes of Migos and Blink-182. Instead, guests who spent upwards of $12,000 hoping to cavort with Instagram models on a “private island” in the Bahamas ended up in bare-bones tents with cheese sandwiches near a Sandals resort. It was so bad that rapper Ja Rule, who was one of the festival’s organizers along with entrepreneur Billy McFarland, took to Twitter saying he was “heartbroken” by the turn of events and pledged to give full refunds to make everything right.

‘Dear White People’ Shows How It’s Just As Awkward Bringing the White Guy Home

6 hours ago

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Chapter I of “Dear White People”) It’s always a little uncomfortable being the black guy or girl who’s being introduced to their partner’s white family. A million and two questions are invading your head — is his/her family low-key racist? Are they going to tell me they voted for Obama to make me feel comfortable? Do they even know I’m black? And etc. etc. (Just reference Jordan Peele’s “Get Out”). But what Netflix’s “Dear White People” just revealed — also what many black »

‘Roseanne’ Reboot Challenge: How to Explain John Goodman’s Return (Video)

6 hours ago

(Spoiler warning: Don’t read on if, for some reason, you still haven’t seen the series finale of the original “Roseanne” and still don’t want to know the details.) The news that the original cast and producers of “Roseanne” wanted to revive the show was a surprise, but not a bigger surprise than the fact that John Goodman would be involved. That’s because in the 1997 series finale of the original “Roseanne,” which ran for nine seasons on ABC, it was revealed that Goodman’s character, Dan Conner, had died of a heart attack. Well, it’s a bit more complicated than that. »

6 hours ago

Two judges have sealed warrant documents relating to the arrest of former “Bachelor” Chris Soules, the Associated Press reports.
