Meghan Markle, Kim Kardashian and More Stars Who Wed in Givenchy

Meghan Markle, Kim Kardashian and More Stars Who Wed in Givenchy
Meghan Markle has just joined a very exclusive group—and we're not talking about the royal family. Sure, a spot in the world's most famous clan is pretty sweet, but now, the new Duchess of Sussex has something in common with the likes of Kim Kardashian West, Christina Ricci and more: She wore Givenchy on her wedding day! Of course, Meghan's custom creation—designed by Clare Waight Keller, the French fashion house's first female artistic director—is one of a kind, but now she shares a style bond with few others who have had the privilege and, let's be honest, the money to don a Givenchy gown while exchanging vows. Special? We think so. Not all Givenchy...

Christina Ricci & John Cusack in Trailer for Action Thriller 'Distorted'

"What are you experiencing?" Minds Eye has released an official trailer for indie action-thriller Distorted, the latest from director Rob W. King, who also made the very cheesy sci-fi film The Humanity Bureau with Nicolas Cage. This film stars Christina Ricci as a woman with biopolar disorder who moves into a "smart apartment" with her husband. But they soon suspect something is up, and realize that the owner is using the residents as unwitting guinea pigs for a "synthetic telepathy'" brainwashing plot. John Cusack co-stars, including Brendan Fletcher, Vicellous Shannon, Nicole Anthony, Oliver Rice, Gigi Jackman, and Maja Milkovich. This seems like it was a cool pitch at first, but the film itself looks boring and forgettable. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Rob W. King's Distorted, direct from YouTube: A 32-year-old woman suffering from bipolar disorder comes to suspect the proprietor of the state-of-the-art "smart apartment" she

Chloe Sevigny Reveals Disappointment With Her New Sundance Film ‘Lizzie’ in Candid Interview

For nearly a decade, actress and producer Chloe Sevigny dreamed of bringing one of America’s best-known tales to the big screen, a Lizzie Borden biopic that delves deep into the psyche and motivations of the notorious (alleged) axe murderer. What became “Lizzie” — directed by Craig William Macneill — bowed at the Sundance Film Festival this past weekend, featuring Sevigny as the infamous maybe-murderer, with Kristen Stewart in a restrained supporting role as the Borden family housekeeper that Lizzie falls in love with. But it’s not the film Sevigny always dreamed of.

In a revealing new interview with HuffPost, Sevigny opened up about the long process to get the film made, and why Macneill’s final product isn’t exactly what she envisioned for all those years. Originally imagined as a miniseries scripted by Sevigny’s long-time friend Bryce Kass, the pair first took the project to HBO, home of Sevigny’s “Big Love,

The Most Disappointing TV Shows of 2017
In the age of peak TV, there’s a lot of bad television out there. But rather than take the time to highlight what everyone should already be forgetting, IndieWire is examining the heartbreaking misses of 2017; the shows that felt like they had something special — either in concept, talent, or early episodes — but failed to fulfill that promise.

For the shows that weren’t cancelled, hope rings eternal. TV is a medium that allows for development, improvement, and the virtual erasure of bad first impressions. The shows below might be a long way from getting good, but their break bad hurt enough that even for the most disappointing, we still hope for the best.

And if you like any shows on the list, then good luck and godspeed. You found something there that we only wish we could have seen. Maybe next year.

46 TV Shows That Have Been Straight Up Canceled in 2017

Can you feel the tension in the air? Networks have been announcing decisions about which shows will return in 2018 and which will . . . not. While there are a number of shows that are ending in 2017, many of them at least got a final season to finish out their stories. (New Girl and Portlandia aren't on this list, as they have been granted final seasons and will end in 2018.) Ahead are all of the shows we were forced to say goodbye to this year. ABC The Real O'Neals: After two seasons, the show is over. Dr. Ken: Ken Jeong's medical comedy is history. Imaginary Mary: Viewers didn't tune in for Jenna Elfman's show, and now they never will. American Crime: Though critically acclaimed, the anthology drama is through. Secrets and Lies: After a solid first season, rating dipped in season two and ABC has canceled the drama.

Addams Family Reunion: the sequel that time forgot

Simon Brew Nov 15, 2017

After Addams Family Values struggled at the box office, another film still followed a few years later. But Addams Family 3 this was not...

Were the world right, then in 1993, Addams Family Values would have got both the rich acclaim and enormous box office it merited. A deliciously playful sequel, it’s 94 minutes of tightly put together comedy, with a bunch of performers that come close to defining ‘perfectly cast’. Christina Ricci, clinging to a fence as she’s threatened with the Harmony Hut, remains a comedy highlight of 1990s cinema.

But the film didn’t really hit. As much as it was liked, its box office was less than half of the original. It was released the week before Mrs Doubtfire in the Us, and it was the latter that become the widely seen family comedy of Christmas 1993. Addams Family Values would do okay at best, but

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in November 2017
It’s a good thing that Netflix already has the “Gilmore Girls” for all of those sweet Thanksgiving vibes, because the streaming giant is coming down from that Halloween sugar high in a bad way and following last month’s blockbuster slate with a relatively unremarkable roster of new additions. Proving that there isn’t much rhyme or reason behind when they’re able to upload new movies (it’s hard to curate around contract rights), the platform’s latest batch of titles is heavy on horror movies and light on seasonal fare.

Still, it’s not all bad news for those of you who might be looking for something to stream while you’re home for the holidays. Comfort watches like “Casper” and “Field of Dreams” are perfect things to put on when you’re immobilized by a stomach full of turkey, and you can even go for an
