Join us as we take a look at some of the most head-scratching (and disturbing) movie-based toys to reach the market, and marvel at how they ever became approved.
Movie merchandising, especially the merchandising of toys, is a Big business. According to the Hollywood Reporter, movie merchandising was responsible for $262.9 billion worth of sales in 2016 (globally). Of that total, 45% were a result of toy and other entertainment-related transactions. That’s about $118 billion worth of merchandise, versus movie ticket sales which only totaled an estimated $38.6 billion. From these numbers, it is easy to see why film studios put such an emphasis on the merchandising capabilities of their films, especially the big-budget franchises.
However, just because studios and toy manufacturers have profited immensely from the merchandising of movies doesn’t necessarily mean that those efforts have been quality or well thought out. For the most part, those responsible for making toys for »

Mean Girls fans, rejoice, because it looks like the fervor surrounding Tina Fey's seminal 2004 comedy will never die. The story of a naive new high school student who gets swept up in the drama of three backstabbing frenemies is coming to Broadway, and the first official glimpse at the adaptation dropped on Wednesday in the form of a pretty fetch new trailer. Regina George (Taylor Louderman) is back in all her conniving glory, as are Karen Smith (Kate Rockwell) and Gretchen Wieners (Ashley Park). The musical will be directed by The Book of Mormon's Casey Nicholaw, while Fey herself is writing the book. Yeah, we can't wait. »

We've witnessed our fair share of love triangles develop on screen through the years: Peeta, Katniss, and Gale from The Hunger Games and Cady, Aaron, and Regina in Mean Girls, just to name a few. By far the most cringeworthy one, though, formed on season four of Bachelor in Paradise. Fan-favorite-turned-f*ckboy Dean Unglert found himself in quite the pickle when he began developing deep feelings for Kristina Schulman, only to be sidetracked by Danielle Lombard once she waltzed into Paradise and snagged a one-on-one date with him. Bip fans watched an intense love triangle unfold, as Dean played emotional ping-pong with the two women, stringing both along for one hell of a drama-filled ride all season. In the end, Dean left Paradise with no bae and hundreds of distressed now-former fans who were confused by his newfound douchebaggery. So what's up with the infamous love triangle now that the sun has set in Paradise? »

If there’s one thing pop singer and Voltron combined of the cast of Mean Girls Taylor Swift is known for, it’s writing subtweets disguised as songs. But if there’s a second thing, it’s almost certainly being an enthusiastic fan of the exciting and fast-paced world of copyright law and trademark-infringement…

Lizzy Caplan is now a Mrs.!
“This one seems fertile,” Riley posted on Instagram on Monday, along with a black-and-white photo of the newlyweds sitting on the ground laughing while at their wedding. “She shall make a satisfactory first wife.”
Caplan, 35, and Riley, 36, got engaged in May 2016. The couple first stepped out on the red carpet together at the Prague Opera Ball in February 2016, a year after they met in January 2015 while Caplan was filming in London. »

Get in loser, we're going to Lizzy Caplan's wedding! The Mean Girls and Masters of Sex star is now officially married to Tom Riley, her rep confirmed to E! News. Lizzy and Tom gathered their closest family and friends for an intimate affair in Ravello, Italy this weekend. "This one seems fertile," Riley wrote on Instagram from the Villa Cimbrone Ravello on the Amalfi Coast. "She shall make a satisfactory first wife." The newly minted husband and wife confirmed their engagement in July 2016, six months after Caplan and the British actor made their red carpet debut as an official couple. This marks the first marriage for both Lizzy and »
In "We Never Asked For This, but Hollywood Is Giving It to Us Anyway" news, another Lord of the Flies movie is on the way, but unlike William Golding's classic 1954 novel and the 1963 and 1990 film adaptations, this version is replacing the young male castaways with girls. Oh, and Deadline reports that it will be written and directed by two men, Scott McGehee and David Siegel, for Warner Bros. *pause for exasperated sigh* While the move to replace a large cast of male characters with female ones is gender progressive, in a way, the story - a plane carrying a group of British schoolboys is shot down during wartime and they're left stranded on a remote island, where they eventually devolve into a toxic society - basically negates all hope that this movie will be empowering for women in any way.

Tragedy Girls, 2017
Directed by Tyler MacIntyre
Two death-obsessed teenage girls use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small mid-western town into a frenzy and cement their legacy as modern horror legends.
There is a tendency within film promotion to say a film is “blank meets blank”. In the world of horror where there is no end of possibilities, this term is used a lot, and a common version since the late 90s is, “it’s Scream meets blank”. Tyler MacIntyre’s new film Tragedy Girls is one of those. It’s Scream meets Clueless, it’s Scream meets Heathers, it’s Scream meets Mean Girls, it’s Scream meets Twitter. But the real beauty of Tragedy Girls is that it surpasses the simple “it’s Scream meets” cliché. »

To quote the one and only Wendy Williams, Taylor Swift is the Queen of Mean. Mean Girls, that is. When the pop star dropped "Look What You Made Me Do" (the first single off her upcoming album reputation) last week, fans wasted not a single second decoding every lyric in hopes of potential digs at her celebrity foes. Taylor's yet to go on the record confirming the direction of said shade, but now that there's a music video to go along with the single, one thing is for sure. Taylor is really trying to make Mean Girls happen. The 27-year-old premiered the highly-anticipated visual at last night's 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, and her listeners »
One day you're in, and the next day you're out. As Cady Heron said in the 2004 movie Mean Girls, frenemy Gretchen Weiners "knew it was better to be in the plastics, hating life, than to not be in at all. Because being with the plastics was like being famous. People looked at you all the time and everybody knew stuff about you." Over the years, similar things have been said about Taylor Swift's ever-evolving squad. It's a notion Swift mocked in her music video for "Look What You made Me Do" by lording over her plastic pals. Wearing a liquid latex ensemble, she intimidated those at "Squad U," a fictional factory where identical women must obey her rules or find themselves in a »
Looks like Taylor Swift and Katy Perry's bad blood has finally been mopped up -- 'cause Taylor's new album throws no shade her way ... like, At All. Our sources tell us TayTay's 6th album, "Reputation," is devoid of hate or trash talking directed at her longtime foe. Anyone expecting another epic slash at Katy is going to be sorely disappointed. On the surface it seems as if Taylor is taking a swipe at Katy. »

Taylor Swift has a new single out and the internet has thoughts. Lots of thoughts. But you already knew that. (Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the last day or so. In which case, welcome back!) While Twitter is busy with arguments over what "Look What You Made Me Do" is really about, who it's aimed at, whether or not it's intentionally using the beat of that one Peaches song from Mean Girls, and if the song's even any good, we're over here realizing that the lyrics about a woman pushed into doing things she didn't want to do after endless unfair treatment makes the perfect theme song for more than a few of our favorite women on TV. And we're not just talking about the ladies »
Whether we were ready for it or not, Taylor Swift's Reputation era is upon us. The singer-songwriter dropped her new single on Thursday night, "Look What You Made Me Do," which hints that Swift is going darker than usual, putting her long list of public enemies on blast (Kanye West? Kim Kardashian? Katy Perry? etc.). The song's music video also hints at the, um, edgier reinvention of her image, but Twitter user T. Kyle MacMahon seems to have found a subtle connection to the old Swift hidden within the track. As we're all painfully aware by now, Perry and Swift's lengthy feud includes a reference to Mean Girls. After Swift accused Perry of stealing her backup dancers in a now-infamous Rolling Stone interview in 2014, Perry subtweeted that we should all "watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing." Funnily enough, "Look What You Made Me Do" uses the »
