When a bank robbery goes wrong, a small-time criminal must attempt to save his handicapped brother, while also avoiding capture himself.

Since wrapping up the Twilight series five years ago, Robert Pattinson has done his utmost to distance himself from his teen heart-throb image. Long gone are the days of glittering skin and emotional vampires, these days Pattinson is an indie darling, working with some of the most distinct and challenging directors in cinema, and establishing himself as one of the most diverse actors working today by taking on increasingly challenging roles. Good Time, more than ever of his previous efforts, really cements his place as one of the most interesting actors out there right now.

Pattinson is almost unidentifiable in the role of

Where Does Danielle Staub's Triumphant Real Housewives of New Jersey Return Rank Among All the Rest?

Where Does Danielle Staub's Triumphant Real Housewives of New Jersey Return Rank Among All the Rest?
"That's right, bitches. I'm back!" After six long seasons, Danielle Staub finally made her triumphant return to The Real Housewives of New Jersey in the season eight premiere. And boy were the circumstances that facilitated her return different from those that sent her packing after season two. Long gone was the intense animosity between her and Teresa Giudice that once sent a table flying amid screams of "prostitution whore." Instead, there was a new Zen-like approach to their relationship, with the two having bonded over yoga and the loss of their mothers. Danielle arrived late in the episode, joining the ladies on their trip to Boca Raton, Fl. And while she didn't find herself in the...

OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder Spills on Epic 'Grey's Anatomy' House Party that Inspired 'Rich Love' (Exclusive)

OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder Spills on Epic 'Grey's Anatomy' House Party that Inspired 'Rich Love' (Exclusive)
Ryan Tedder is re-living some of his wild years. 

The OneRepublic frontman looks back on being "broke as a bottle of wine" in the band's catchy new single, "Rich Love." Only Et was on the set of the feel-good music video, set on the famous 4th Street Bridge in Los Angeles. 

"Everybody who moves to a major city has that moment where you have nothing and you kind of hate it when you're in it, but you don't realize how good it is," Tedder said of the inspiration. "When I moved to L.A., the roommates I had, the friends I had -- we were absolutely dead broke, but we had the best time." 

In the second verse, Tedder sings about epic house parties and angry neighbors. Turns out, that moment was inspired by some very famous friends.

'Hall of Mirrors': Film Review | Nyff 2017

'Hall of Mirrors': Film Review | Nyff 2017
Long gone are the days of All the President’s Men. Now, in the internet era, a documentary about an investigative journalist will most likely consist of endless footage showing someone staring at a computer screen while surfing the internet. That, fortunately, is not the case with Ena and Ines Talakic’s doc about famed journalist/author Edward Jay Epstein, receiving its world premiere at the New York Film Festival. That its 81-year-old subject is so determinedly old-school in his shoe-leather approach is what makes Hall of Mirrors such fascinating viewing.

Epstein has been pursuing his vocation for a very long time. His...

How Political Podcasts Make Informal the New Normal
Tamara Keith and Scott Detrow never know when they might need to record a new episode of the “NPR Politics Podcast.” Just as listeners might listen to the podcast anytime or anywhere, Detrow and Keith regularly assemble episodes on the run, whenever news breaks, as fast as they can. Long gone are the days when you could only get your news at a certain time, by sitting in front of your radio or TV. And podcasts aren’t just smashing barriers because they’re available anytime, anywhere — they’re also informal in ways that encourage hosts to let down their guard.

16 Tweets That Perfectly Sum Up Bachelor Nation's Disappointment With Dean's F*ckboy Ways

  • BuzzSugar
On a show like ABC's Bachelor in Paradise, ample drama is to be expected. But perhaps the most cringeworthy moments of season four were all thanks to America's now-former sweetheart, Dean Unglert (with the brief appearance of the twins from Ben Higgins's season coming in a close second). Bachelor Nation sat back and watched with popcorn in hand (and maybe even a few tears in eyes) as Dean morphed from an angel who could do no wrong to a dude who displayed shocking douchebaggery in its truest form. On Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette, Dean (or Deanie Babies, as most refer to him) quickly developed a diehard collection of fans, with myself included. He's undeniably easy on the eyes (that contagious smile!), and he seemed to be genuinely sweet. When Dean opened up to Rachel about his "eccentric" father and difficult family situation, people felt for Dean,

Woman Selling Bread on Street Becomes Top Model After Photobombing Shoot
Olajumoke Orisaguna, a 27-year-old from Nigeria, went from selling bread on the streets of the city of Lagos to becoming a signed model in the most unexpected way.

Like a fairy tale, the young woman was selling bread when international photographer Ty Bello was shooting with English rapper Tinie Tempah, on that same street in the African city. Unintentionally, Orisaguna came out in one of the images shot.

Days later, Bello shared pictures from that shoot on his social media but with interest of finding out who that young woman was in the photo.

Riverdale Boss on That Deadly Finale Cliffhanger, a 'Much Darker' Archie and the 'Civil War' to Come in Season 2

Warning: The following post contains spoilers from Thursday’s Riverdale season finale.

It’s going to be a cruel summer, Riverdale fans.

After wrapping up the Jason Blossom murder mystery last week, Thursday’s season finale threw a bunch more thrills and (literal) chills at us: A suicidal Cheryl plunged into an icy river, only to be saved by Archie, and then set fire to her family’s Thorn Hill mansion (hot damn!); Betty and Jughead said “I love you” (aw!), but he also switched schools and fell in with the Southside Serpents (hiss!); Archie and Veronica had sex (yowza!

East Loves West: The ever growing Chinese interest in Hollywood

Tom Jolliffe on the ever-growing Chinese interest in Hollywood…

It used to be that the success or failure of a Hollywood film rested on its domestic box office results. In fact success or failure was often established by the time the opening weekend results had come in, and even further you could say by the estimates in the week before the release. Before the first ticket was sold, studios almost perceptively knew if they had a bomb on their hands. Even more perceptively, they might have sensed this months in advance and taken measures to quietly release it without wasting too much more money on things like marketing.

There seems to have been a shift in thinking over the past five or so years though. Now a major consideration of success is the worldwide gross. It seems studio execs in America now acknowledge the existence of other territories. Now America

Jim Carrey: a salute to his darker roles

Robin Bell Jan 13, 2017

Jim Carrey proved his acting range in the late 90s and 2000s. We salute the likes of The Truman Show, The Cable Guy and Man On The Moon.

You know you're a fan of something when that fandom is put to the test. Did you stick with Community when Dan Harmon wasn't writing it? During the barren 90s did you cling onto the hope that Doctor Who would return and be fantastic? Those moments when your patience and perseverance are tested are what make the privilege of being a fan important.

15 Presents For the Person Who Knows Nothing Is Better Than '90s Nickelodeon

  • BuzzSugar
For millennials, Nickelodeon was at its prime in the '90s. However, the good ol' days at Good Burger are only available on The Splat between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., when us elderly folk are fast asleep prepping for the next full day of adulthood. (How nauseating.) Long gone are the days of playing hooky to hang out in Bluffington with Doug or hoarding the landline desperately calling to be a contestant on Slime Time Live. Sadly, kids these days will never understand why hand-drawn bumpers were way better than checking Instagram during commercials or why Smell-o-Vision was the coolest TV interaction in the game. Yes, the peak years may be over, but thankfully, Stoop Kid still hasn't left the stoop. With the resurgence of '90s nostalgia, our favorite Nicktoons and Nick merch are making a comeback. Here are 15 of the best Nick products for you and your orange-soda-obsessed pals.

Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Fashion Flashback: Relive 8 Seasons of Questionable Couture

Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Fashion Flashback: Relive 8 Seasons of Questionable Couture
Even with cast fluctuations from season to season there are a few things you can always count on at a Real Housewives of New York City reunion special: The drama, the fashion, and Ramona Singer. (Seriously, others may come and go, but we've got a feeling Ramona will always be on that couch. We're certain she's the Vicki Gunvalson of this series.) While Ramona has more or less stayed the same since the show's humble beginnings eight seasons ago, the drama and the fashion have only amped up each year. Long gone are the days when someone would dare wear a sleeveless t-shirt with their name printed on it. (Looking at you, Jill Zarin.) While we impatiently await the first part of the season eight reunion...

Troma Lives! Inside the Wacky, Repulsive and Weirdly Meaningful World of a B-Movie Legend

Troma Lives! Inside the Wacky, Repulsive and Weirdly Meaningful World of a B-Movie Legend
If you’ve never heard of Lloyd Kaufman, you’ve managed to avoid the work of one of the most prolific pioneers of independent film from the past four decades. Kaufman’s New York-based movie studio Troma Entertainment has produced and distributed more than 1,000 films, and in the process has helped launch the careers of some of Hollywood’s most successful talents.

New Yorkers unfamiliar with Troma have a chance to catch up on its sensibilities this weekend. On Friday and Saturday, Troma hosts the 17th annual Tromadance Film Festival in Brooklyn, a free festival showing feature films and shorts from filmmakers around the world. This is the story of how one wacky filmmaking factory found its groove.

Schlock With Purpose

Founded in 1974 by Kaufman and his business partner Michael Herz, Troma bills itself as the longest-running independent movie studio in North America. The company is known for its low-budget

Arthouse Audit: Woody Allen’s ‘Café Society’ Boosted by Kristen Stewart, But Not ‘Equals’
Mid-summer brings the biggest limited opening of 2016, with a return to form by Woody Allen as new distributor Amazon Studios and partner Lionsgate pushed “Café Society” to numbers unseen since last December. It’s not at Allen’s top level, but a huge leap above his last two films as well as anything else so far this year.

For a totally different market, Dinesh D’Souza doc “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” had a limited opening in Middle America with strong front-loaded initial numbers. The political doc goes wider this Friday and could see a better eventual total —via an entirely different audience—than Allen’s film.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople” (The Orchard) from New Zealand leads the films in wider release as it continues to build word-of-mouth success. “Captain Fantastic” (Bleecker Street) boasted a decent second weekend expansion and could end up at a

Blood Father: first trailer for new Mel Gibson movie

Elizabeth Rayne Jul 8, 2016

Mel Gibson does his own take on Taken, in incoming thriller Blood Father. Here's the trailer...

Mel Gibson’s movie career, for fairly understandable reasons, has not been anywhere near as prolific as it once was. He’s picked up roles in The Beaver, Machete Kills, The Expendables 3 and How I Spent My Summer Vacation. But the days he was one of the biggest draws at the box office? Long gone.

For his new film, he’s starring in Blood Father, as an ex-con proecting his daughter from drug dealers. It’s French-produced movie, from director Jean-Francois Richet, who helmed the Us remake of Assault On Precinct 13. It’s the kind of Euro-thriller that helped turned Liam Neeson into such a bankable action movie star, by the looks of it.

A trailer for the film – that lands in the Us next month – has popped up online.

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: Why ‘Finding Dory’ Sequel Drowned ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: Why ‘Finding Dory’ Sequel Drowned ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’
Like the rest of the summer, it’s a mixed bag.

The good news: this weekend’s top two films, one opener and one holdover, grossed nearly $115 million. That’s better than the top two last year (holdovers “Jurassic World” and “Inside Out”).

The bad news: while “Finding Dory” is a huge success, “Independence Day: Resurgence” is a dud that will likely fall like a rock from its underwhelming opening.

Buddy comedy “Central Intelligence” enjoyed a strong second weekend, and low-budget horror flick “The Shallows” scored a better-than-expected opening, buoyed by rave reviews. But Stx’s risky opening strategy failed for Gary Ross’s historic epic “Free State of Jones,” starring Matthew McConaughey. Another national release in under 800 theaters bombed. “The Neon Demon” and its sub-$1 million haul is covered in Arthouse Audit.

Martin Garrix To Release “Oops” As YouTube Live At E3 Theme

Long gone are the times when electronic music and nerd culture went hand in hand, but one of the most household names in mainstream Edm has forged a partnership that would suggest otherwise. Martin Garrix has announced that his new track titled “Oops” will be released as the official theme of YouTube Live at E3.

Garrix debuted the track during his performance at Indy 500 Snake Pit last week, and its 8 bit-reminiscent sections had sounded somewhat out of character for one of his releases. With the announcement that he will release it in conjunction with YouTube’s coverage of E3 – arguably the most renowned trade fair for gamers worldwide – suddenly the themes make more sense.

Martin Garrix will release “Oops” as a free giveaway across several platforms on June 13th, when YouTube Live at E3 kicks off. Until then, you can watch the video above to hear him talk about how the partnership came together.

Don't Worry, Newbies: Wayward Pines Season 2 Is Basically a Brand New Show

Don't Worry, Newbies: Wayward Pines Season 2 Is Basically a Brand New Show
For better or worse, Wayward Pines begins its second season feeling like a whole new show. Sure, the titular town is still front and center—and those problematic abbies are still scratching at the fortified walls—but this is not the same place that Matt Dillon's Ethan sacrificed himself for at the end of the Fox series' first season. Long gone is the pretense of the peaceful idyll carefully cultivated until the not-so-dearly departed David Pilcher's (Toby Jones) watch, replaced instead by the fanatical First Generation's martial law. This semi-reboot, and the several fresh faces that come along with it, was born out of necessity, sure—what was originally intended as a one-and-done limited...

Kelly Ripa may no longer be mad as hell, but it has become quickly apparent that she's not going to take it anymore. The week of her "return" to Live! With Kelly and Michael is now behind her and today's installment of Masterbeef Theater further confirmed that Ripa has no intention of letting Michael Strahan off the hook before he leaves the show for good in two weeks. And why should she?

More than ever, what's going on in real life is spilling over into TV land. Of course, that...
