Now that “Swiss Army Man” has considerably raised the collective cachet of Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert (known together as Daniels), one of their earlier works is being brought to greater attention. “Possibilia” first premiered at Tribeca in 2014 before being spotlighted as part of Sundance’s New Frontiers the next year, and now the “interactive love story set in the multiverse” is set to be released online. Watch its trailer below.
Alex Karpovsky (“Girls,” “Red Flag,” “Hail Caesar!”) and Zoe Jarman (“The Office,” “Modern Family”) star as a couple on the verge of breaking up. Per the official synopsis, “the viewer is able to slide between these possible outcomes even as they multiply, following the couple in the kitchen or the living room, in a raucous fight or tender embrace. Eventually the storyline fragments »

This week's episode of The Bachelorette was less about JoJo Fletcher trying to find love and more about the fact that everyone really hates Chad. We already didn't like Chad because he brought a suitcase full of protein powder on the show, but this week, he took things to a whole new level by calling JoJo "naggy" and threatening to knock someone's teeth out. He also befriended Daniel the weird Canadian, so he obviously can't be trusted. Wells, We're So Glad you're OKAYBefore we get into Chad, though, we need to talk about Wells, because the poor kid almost kicked »

Gwen Stefani's divorce from her husband, Gavin Rossdale, was recently finalized, and it seems as though the singer is about to address the split in a major way. Popsugar hears that, according to a casting call, the singer's new music video is set to start shooting next week. It will be directed by Sophie Muller, who has previously worked with Gwen on the music videos for her recent singles "Used to Love You" and "Make Me Like You," and is described as "a very stylized music video / short . . . shot with a very 1950's melodrama sensibility." The production calls for three main characters; Trudy, a stylish mother; Troy, who is described as a good-looking philanderer; and an attractive young woman as Nanny. This would all be pretty innocuous if not for the alliteration of the character names, or reports that Gavin had been carrying on a years-long affair with the couple's nanny, »

“So what’s the deal with Evites?” Stand up Paul (Alex Karpovsky) is bombing — at life. Dumped by his fiancée, working a dead end temp job, and flogging the same tired stand up routine at open mics around town, he’s going nowhere until an old friend invites him on a ride. The old friend is Jason Black (Wyatt Russell) a folk musician with a cult following who brings Paul on tour as an opening act to get his “mojo” back. “Folk Hero & Funny Guy” writer/director Jeff Grace is an actor (“It’s a Disaster”) and stand-up comic, and mines his own experiences for his directorial debut in this appealing road trip flick. The film hews closely to the road movie format, and calls to mind films like “The Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best” and even Karpovsky’s own film “Red Flag,” which share themes about finding inspiration and »

Well, that was fun. Thank you all so much for your questions. If you like to laugh, come to see How The Other Half Loves at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket - we're on until June 25. The episode of Inside No 9, series three, will be on this autumn on BBC2.
There used to be a publicity shot of you in Red Cap on the “media appearances” board in HQ Training Estates South East, where you filmed. They said it was the most stolen image, more so than 007. Any other unusual accolades like that?
I used to be seeded number three in trampolining in Redbridge. And in all-girls doubles, tennis, me and my partner were seeded number two. »

Take Chase Chrisley to church because he's going to be asking for forgiveness really soon! In an exclusive sneak peek at tonight's all new Chrisley Knows Best, Todd Chrisley has his suspicions that something is going on with his son.

"What particular spot on your body do I need to focus on?" Todd asks before rushing to give his son a full-on pat down. After »
Scarred Not Scared from Red Flag Magazine on Vimeo. Last summer, Michelle Elman posted a photo on social media of herself in a bikini, showcasing the scars that came as the result of the 15 surgeries she had over the course of her life. Elman had been self-conscious about her scars for as long as she could remember, but decided at 21 she was tired of hiding them. The photo she posted soon went viral, and other people began posting their own photos using Elman's #scarrednotscared hashtag.

“Misery.” “Red Flag.” “Me Without You.” Yep, this truly will be the divorce-pop album of your dreams. As anticipated since October, when Gwen Stefani dropped the breakup ballad “Used to Love You,” the No Doubt front woman has unofficially announced the title and track list of her first solo album since 2006’s The Sweet Escape. “This Is What the Truth Feels Like,” Stefani tweeted, along with a very emotional-sounding array of song titles. If it’s wrong to dance to a pop song about the recent dissolution of a 12-year marriage, then no one will be right until at least the end of 2016. »

Never ever will we get tired of seeing our favorite throwback groups together again. You can write it in a letter, babe. The '90s girl group All Saints is reuniting (again.) The band has a new single "One Strike" dropping in late February, and their fourth album, Red Flag, will be released on April 8. If you haven't been giving enough love to your girl group playlists recently, let us take you on a little All Saints crash course. The British-Canadian girl group first formed in 1993, and their debut album, All Saints, hit shelves in 1997. Their style was like four Sporty Spices, so no one in your friend group had to buy a sequined baby doll dress to look like »
