Jussie Smollett Returns To ‘Empire’ Set After Bail Hearing
Jussie Smollett, the Empire star who was arrested Thursday on a felony charge in the wake of allegedly planning a January attack on himself, went directly to the Fox series’ Chicago set after his bail hearing this afternoon, Deadline has confirmed.

Smollett was released on $100,000 bail and had his passport revoked during the court appearance. His defense lawyers insisted during the hearing that Smollett needed to get back to work on Empire, which was continuing production today.

What he will do there — today, or going forward — remains unclear. Smollett’s upcoming scenes on Empire were reduced or cut amid the investigation, so it’s not clear if he will get back in front of the camera anytime soon. Producer 20th Century Fox TV and Fox Entertainment issued a statement today saying “We understand the seriousness of this matter and we respect the legal process. We are evaluating the situation and we are considering our options.

Tilda Swinton's New Film Features a Very Important Costar: Her Daughter!
When The Souvenir debuted at Sundance in January, it took home the top prize in the dramatic film category. And no wonder: it's a gripping, emotional, and visceral story about a young woman's conflicting passions for her dream career and her relationship, a first love with an older man. But the real twist is a small fact hidden in the cast list: the film stars Tilda Swinton and her real-life daughter, Honor Swinton Byrne. Even the trailer's short glimpse of the film proves the young actress is already a force to be reckoned with, and she's clearly following in her mother's footsteps.

The Haunting of Hill House Has Been Renewed For Season 2 on Netflix, but There's a Catch

  • Popsugar
Netflix has really cemented itself as a home of horror masterpieces lately. Between its large collection of classic horror and thriller movies, as well as original films like Hush, The Ritual, and Gerald's Game, the streaming platform never runs out of terrifying options.

Diane Keaton Leads a Retirement Community's Cheerleading Squad in the Trailer For Poms
If you loved last year's Book Club, then prepare yourself for another uplifting comedy about a group of women discovering the joy in life in a very unexpected way (sadly Fifty Shades of Grey and gallons upon gallons of white wine will likely not be involved this time around).

With the help of a talented high school cheerleader (13 Reasons Why's Alisha Boe), Martha and her friends set out to prove that "it's never too late to follow your dreams."

Watch the trailer for Poms above before it hits theaters on May 10, then check out all the other sweet films that are headed your way this year.
