As the cover says, you can’t get millions of friends without making a few enemies. I’m paraphrasing of course but the statement is entirely true. Facebook has become a platform where friends and family can keep in touch and even enemies can lash out from time to time so long as they follow the rules. The social media platform hasn’t been around for two decades yet and it’s become one of the most popular sites to ever exist. It’s a way for people to share virtually anything they feel is pertinent and a means by which they can inform others

There’s been a push in recent years for the elder statesmen of alt-music—your Trent Reznors or your Jonny Greenwoods, say—to slide into the world of film score composing, applying skills honed through years of meticulous album work and touring toward big emotional movie moments in films like The Social Network or There Will Be Blood. Now, Greenwood’s long-time Radiohead collaborator, drummer Philip Selway, is getting in on the game, composing the soundtrack for the upcoming drama Let Me Go.
Directed by Polly Steele, the film is based on Helga Schneider’s memoir of the same name, about Schneider struggling with learning that her mother was a guard in a German concentration camp. Selway’s soundtrack for the film—described in a press release as “otherworldly” and “jagged”— will arrive on October 27; outside his work with Radiohead, Selway is also responsible for two other full albums »

Famed Hollywood writer Aaron Sorkin has stepped into the director’s chair. Sorkin will make his directorial debut with the new film, Molly’s Game. The first trailer for the film was released earlier today. Sorkin has delivered a number of great movies through his writing, including A Few Good Men, The Social Network, for which Sorkin won an Oscar for best adapted screenplay, and Moneyball.

It’s easy to say life is little more than a high stakes game. Who wins, who loses, and who gets to take home that pot at the end of the rainbow.

When it comes to cinema, the folks who are strictly screenwriters don’t typically receive top-billing recognition, at least not among garden-variety moviegoers. The household names tend to be actors and directors, in that order. For years, Aaron Sorkin has been one of the exceptions that prove the rule. He has penned incredible television, from “The West Wing” to “The Newsroom,” and he has penned incredible films, from “A Few Good Men” to “The Social Network.” Come this November, however, Sorkin will no longer be an exception to the rule because he is (finally!) making his directorial debut with Stx Entertainment’s “Molly’s Game.”
While Sorkin is jumping behind the camera for the first time, it doesn’t mean he’s left his old gig in the rearview, »

Image Source: Everett Collection Lucille Ball is one of the most legendary actresses from Hollywood's golden era. Not only was she a pioneer for independent women to carve their own career paths and not take no for an answer, but she was also an insanely talented actress whose show, I Love Lucy, is still beloved to this day. It should come as no surprise, then, that a biopic about her life and career is in the works at Amazon. While we've always been apprehensive about movies surrounding Lucy (she's so iconic that it's almost best to leave her story alone), we're actually pretty excited for this one. Not only is the authorized project, titled Lucy and Desi, being produced by Lucille and Desi Arnaz's children, Lucie and Desi Jr., but it already has its star! Keep reading to see everything we know about the biopic so far. The Story »
