Did you think that Clueless was only valuable to the generation of 90s kids who grew up on it? As if!
The 1995 film, which starred Alicia Silverstone as a popular, superficial teenager and launched a trend of colorful, patterned fashion choices, has returned thanks to the latest project from Episode, an app that creates interactive series for its young, mobile users.
Episode's contribution to the Clueless universe is titled Clueless: School's Out. It gives players the ability to interact with the film's heroines, with dialogue decisions opening up specific pieces of content. Ultimately, a press release notes that Episode users will eventually be able to form "'Bff' relationships" with the clique that had such a profound effect on 90s teen culture.
School's Out is Episode's second collaboration with Paramount Pictures, the studio that distributed Clueless. The two companies previously teamed up for an interactive, mobile project based on another »

Stars: Brianna Hildebrand, Alexandra Shipp, Kevin Durand, Josh Hutcherson, Nicky Whelan, Austin Abrams, Craig Robinson, Rosalind Chao, Timothy V. Murphy | Written by Chris Lee Hill, Tyler MacIntyre | Directed by Tyler MacIntyre
A small, midwestern town is terrorized in the grip of a serial killer (Kevin Durand). We first meet Sadie (Brianna Hildebrand) as she is being chased through the woods, about to become the murderer’s latest victim… until the slasher realizes that he’s fallen into a trap! Sadie and her Bff McKayla (Alexandra Shipp) ambush the killer, chain him up in a secret place and alternately jolt him with cattle prods and take selfies. The unfortunate madman has met his match. You see, Sadie and McKayla are beautiful, popular death-obsessed teens who brand themselves The Tragedy Girls in the Twitter/Tumblr universe, where they’ve been amassing followers reporting on the ongoing killing spree. Now, with the killer their secret captive, »

McKayla and Sadie are Bff’s with a disturbing social media obsession. Determined to be ‘instafamous’, the girls run a blog about a local string of gruesome murders. After realising that their follower count is low, the pair track down the serial killer and take matters into their own hands, generating a furry of deaths that get the whole town talking, but is fame really worth all this work?
Usually a teen slasher movie would feature a teenage girl as the prime choice of victim, Tragedy Girls spins that convention on its head, the girls being the hunters. It’s a refreshing angle on a tried and tested genre, and injects some much needed newness. But that’s not where the innovation stops, there »

A bullied teen cozies up the Devil in order to enact vengeance on the mean girls at her high school…
Devil’s Domain sounds like a promising, if well worn, premise; a supernatural, revenge fantasy about the dangers of cyber-bullying and cruelty. Unfortunately, this film can’t decide if it wants to be Carrie, Mean Girls, or Saw. It’s as if somewhere along the shoot writer/director Jared Cohn kept coming up with new ideas and tried to switch the films tone every couple of scenes.
The film begins with bulimic, cutter, lesbian, teen Lisa Pomson (Madi Vodane) being harassed by literally every human being who shares her air. You know the old trope about how the villain has to kick a dog to prove how evil he is? Imagine Lisa is the dog »

At the D23 Expo Animation Panel the attendees got to see some amazing clips of what's to come from the three Disney animation studios. From footage from films that haven't even been titled yet, to the next movie to be released, Coco. Rich Moore and Phil Johnston gave the crowd a little background behind the upcoming sequel, Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. In this new movie we see Ralph and Vanellope get sent to the world of the internet to find a cure for Vanellope's broken game. By taking Ralph and Vanellope into the internet, it allows the Wreck-It universe to expand into the more modern video game universe and other areas that weren't available in the first film. From the initial clips that were shown, this sequel has a feel of Wreck-It Ralph meets Inside Out. Ralph is in a new territory with the »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.
Sandwiched in between the summer’s biggest blockbuster offerings and superhero tentpoles are a pair of outrageously funny outliers — comedies that, for all their raunchy gags and wild behavior, center squarely on women and their friendships — in the form of “Rough Night” and the upcoming release “Girls Trip.” Although both films lean hard on their comedic trappings, often in the form of booze-fueled bad behavior from their leading ladies, they also both find unexpected heart and charm in their deeper explorations of the relationships between the very different women that populate them.
But even with films like “Rough Night” and “Girls Trip” hitting the multiplex with a welcome dose of girl power, it seems that even this summer isn’t immune from the most tired and toxic of lady-centric comedy tropes: the dicks before chicks sub-genre. »

We’re nearly halfway through July, but somehow, here at the ole’ multiplex, there’s a distinct chill. No, it’s not somebody tinkering with the thermostat. It could be this new horror flick, perhaps. Although it’s not the good chill as in a memorable “spine-tingler”. No, it’s as if this wannabe’ thriller somehow escaped the dumping ground of mid-January, or a Friday-the-thirteenth weekend, or sometime close to Halloween. It’s squarely aimed at the pre-teen and teen set since it’s got the PG-13 rating, so it’s a bit scary, just not too intense or “gory gross”. And it features a cast from other young adult flicks and TV shows for audience identification. And what’s the added incentive at the top of the poster, the nudge that’ll put behinds in the seats? “From the director of Annabelle”…really. That’s something to boast about? »

On Wednesday, she took to Twitter to talk about the stigmas surrounding breastfeeding, writing, “Breastfeeding is awesome. Formula is awesome. Feeding your baby is awesome. Not awesome? Judgement.”
She then shared a quote from Maureen Shaw on Twitter, writing, “’Breasts are intended to feed babies. With all our progress on feminist issues, how can such a simple biological imperative remain so stigmatized? In a word: sex. We live in a culture comfortable with exploiting breasts to sell burgers, for goodness sake. How would you rather your body be portrayed?’”
Seyfried also appeared on the Dr. Berlin’s Informed Pregnancy Podcast, where she got candid about her own personal anxieties. One of her biggest fears is performing on stage. Then in »
