‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Is Even More Terrifying With Trump As The Commander — Watch

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Is Even More Terrifying With Trump As The Commander — Watch
When Hulu’s screen adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian “The Handmaid’s Tale” hit screens this spring, its bleak imagined future where women are enslaved as vessels for procreation under the government’s watchful eye seemed a lot more believable in Donald Trump’s America. Though the novel is from 1985, when Atwood was responding to Reagan-era threats to reproductive rights, the story took on a heightened significance at a time when many Americans are distressed about having a president who bragged openly about sexual assault.

‘Justice League’: Joss Whedon to Direct Remaining Scenes as Zack Snyder Deals with a Family Tragedy
Zack Snyder is stepping down from directing “Justice League.” The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, which comes for a very unfortunate reason: Snyder’s daughter committed suicide in March and he’s bowing out to deal with the loss. Joss Whedon is coming aboard to finish the film, which is still expected to hit its planned release date of November 17.

Autumn Snyder was 20 at the time of her passing. Deborah Snyder, a producer on “Jusice League,” is likewise taking a step back from the superhero team-up film, which stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller. “In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was way through it,” Snyder told THR alongside his wife.

Tinder Date Coming Up? Here’s What to Talk About

This is the right way to do Emmy campaigning. In a historic move, CBS’ “Mom” is foregoing an Emmy campaign this year and is instead donating it’s $250,000 to Planned Parenthood. Let’s hope other shows follow suit as the organization needs support now more than ever. (Hollywood Reporter) Joss Whedon continues his tour of wokeness. Speaking of Planned Parenthood, the director teamed up with the organization to produce a short film about what happens when Pp is shut down. You would think that with all the high-profile pro-Planned Parenthood campaigning taking place, the current administration would take a hint and realize what a huge mistake defunding it would be. (EW) Kirsten Dunst on Hollywood: 'It's always harder for women.'In conversation with director Sophia Coppola to promote their new film “The Beguiled,” the actress got candid about how the industry changes as women age and her difficulty finding funding for “The Bell Jar,

TV (@warnerbrostv) May 18, 2017 CBS's hit show Mom just did something you rarely ever see in Hollywood: it donated its entire award show campaign budget to charity. The show's cocreator Chuck Lorre and its star Allison Janney announced on CBS This Morning on Thursday that instead of using their $250,000 award show budget to campaign for an Emmy win, they're giving it all to Planned Parenthood. The two are also encouraging the show's fans to donate to the organization on their own. Their amazing generosity comes on the heels of the devastating and enraging news that the Senate is considering passing the American Health Care Act, which would block low-income patients from being able to use Planned Parenthood for things like cancer screenings and birth control.

Joss Whedon Takes on Planned Parenthood in New Short Film

What you’ll more than likely hear Joss Whedon’s name for in the upcoming months is the movie Batgirl. Whedon’s moved over to the Dceu to try and bring some of his Marvel success over. Many don’t think it’s a question of if his adaptation of Batgirl will be solid but rather how he’s going to portray the character.

Crazyhead episode 3 review: Shave The Cat

Louisa Mellor Nov 2, 2016

Crazyhead forgets its most promising strands while it takes its characters on a classic horror outing to a cabin in the woods…

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Shave The Cat

The joy of last week’s Crazyhead was Raquel’s emergence as the show’s super-powered focus and her developing friendship with Amy. It’s disappointing then, for Shave The Cat to more or less shrug off what happened at the ice-rink and split the girls up with a scattershot episode that goes off in all directions.

Raquel’s new-found powers are ignored and Sawyer’s demise is given only a cursory nod in an episode about Amy’s best friend returning from the dead.

Why Westerns Are Tragically More Relevant Than Ever

Why Westerns Are Tragically More Relevant Than Ever
Where life had no value, death had its price."

So begins Sergio Leone's For a Few Dollars More, the film's opening title card succinctly setting the scene for the carnage to come. And yet, for all of its ominous portent, the preface betrays a certain shortsightedness: Just because the film is set in the past doesn't mean that it should speak in the past tense. More than 40 years have elapsed since that spaghetti Western first hit theaters — and more than 100 since the twilight of the late 19th Century frontier that it depicts.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Finest Roles

This year marks over 25 years since Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio made his acting debut. As a fresh faced, ambitious teen, DiCaprio appeared in several family soap operas in the early 1990s that had decent runs, including Parenthood and Growing Pains. A quarter of a century later and two Golden Globe wins for Best Actor (The Wolf of Wall Street in 2014 and The Aviator in 2005), DiCaprio has arguably become one of the most recognizable faces in the world, albeit sadly without that coveted Oscar win. Sealing his fate as a global heartthrob in age-old romantic drama Romeo + Juliet in 1996, then following it up next year with the blockbuster Titanic, Leo subsequently shot to stardom and worked with some of cinema’s finest directors, including Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino. Although a hard list to make given his impressive CV, here we take a look back some of his most remarkable roles.

Lloyd, Lloyd, all null and void: The brief rise and fall of NBC's 'Say Anything' remake
Yesterday was a head-spinning day when it came to '90s nostalgia. In the morning, Showtime announced that "Twin Peaks" would be returning in 2016 with a nine-episode miniseries, and there was much rejoicing across social media. In the evening, meanwhile, Deadline reported that NBC was developing a sequel series to "Say Anything," set 10 years after the events of the film, and there was much anger and skepticism on social media — and no one sounded unhappier than "Say Anything" writer/director Cameron Crowe, whose tweet about the project may have already killed it. Regarding the announcement of a "Say Anything" tv show... @JohnCusack, @IoneSkye1 and I have no involvement... except in trying to stop it. — Cameron Crowe (@CameronCrowe) October 7, 2014 Six hours after the initial report by Nellie Andreeva — and only a few hours after that tweet — she followed up with a new story suggesting that NBC and 20th TV would likely
