Abrams, questioned his mental competence after they were ousted as directors of the trust that will control his fortune if he dies or becomes incapacitated. They argued that Redstone’s daughter Shari was manipulating the 93-year-old mogul. Their »

Step Aside, ‘Captain America': Horror Movies Are This Summer’s Real Winners

13 hours ago

Summer is the time for tentpole films like “Captain America: Civil War” and “Finding Dory,” but the real winner this season is the horror genre. It’s long been a profitable gambit for Hollywood studios, and that trend doesn’t show any signs of relenting, if the recent successes of New Line’s “Lights Out” and James Wan‘s “The Conjuring 2” are any indication. “In a bit of a twist, the most unlikely and unexpected winner of this season is one of the most marginalized genres of all: horror,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior analyst at comScore.

Are Trump-Pence’s KFC Pics a Dog-Whistle to a Sexist Clinton Joke?

14 hours ago

Why have Donald Trump and Mike Pence been tweeting pictures of themselves eating KFC on planes? It could be that they just really, really like their chicken — it is finger lickin’ good, after all. But there’s also a theory that the pictures are a sexist dig at Hillary Clinton that can only be understood by those who read between the lines. At least one reporter seems to think so. Kcrw’s Xeni Jardin tweeted recently: “Recurring KFC snapshots likely dogwhistling a vulgar, sexist, Hrc in-joke popular among Trump fans.

15 hours ago

(Warning: Don’t read this if you haven’t seen the premiere of HBO’s “The Night Of”) HBO’s new crime drama “The Night Of” is about the criminal justice system, but also contains a frustrating mystery: Who killed Andrea? It’s obvious why the cops blame Naz (Riz Ahmed). He admits he had sex with Andrea (Sofia Black-d’Elia), and he’s carrying a knife that looks like it’s probably the murder weapon. The show suggests that during the murder, Naz may have been asleep or blacked out. (We say blacked out because of the pill, cocaine and tequila Andrea gave him. »
