The 41-year-old actor is tied to a chair in a dusty, dingy basement that doubles as an underground surveillance control center-slash-hacker mancave, complete with a dozen computers and a dirty cot in the corner. He looks like he's gone several rounds with either Mike Tyson circa 1988 or a mack truck. The person standing in front of him doling out punches – and whose identity may or may not constitute a spoiler, depending on how far along you are in The Punisher's inaugural season,
Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents.
When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he’s never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.

How to Get Away with Murder is clear evidence that I was unaware just how far that envelope could be pushed.
The show is created and written by Pete Nowalk, also of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal fame, and Shonda Rhimes serves as executive producer, but it’s her name you’re going to hear pushed.
The series opens with four people frantically trying to decide what to do about the murder they’ve committed, and they’re doing it on campus during a huge pre-football celebration that sees drunk students roaming everywhere. They’re torn about whether they should go back and move the body,
Adding further insult to injury, there’s a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom (Darren Criss) and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother’s bed (Matt Dillon). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she’s ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.
Girl Most Likely is in theaters July 19.

The latest cinematic exploration of 9/11 comes during Robert Pattinson's romantic drama "Remember Me."
At the end of what appears to be a commonplace love story between two young New Yorkers — played by Pattinson and "Lost" star Emilie de Ravin — the audience learns that the events of the film are actually set almost one decade in the past.
