Ben Affleck Explains Why He’s Done Playing Batman: ‘I Couldn’t Crack It’
Ben Affleck is hanging up his cape and saying goodbye to Batman.

In an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday, the actor explained why he will not be returning as the Caped Crusader in the 2021 film “The Batman,” to be written and directed by Matt Reeves. Affleck is retiring from the role after playing Bruce Wayne in only three movies: “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Suicide Squad,” and “Justice League.”

“I tried to direct a version of it and worked with a really good screenwriter, but just couldn’t come up with a version, I couldn’t crack it,” Affleck told Kimmel. “So I thought it was time to let someone else take a shot at it. They got some really good people, so I’m excited.”

Affleck also tweeted about the decision to leave the film he was originally slated to direct and star in on Jan. 30. “Excited

Inside Katy Perry's Dramatic Path to Forever With Orlando Bloom

Inside Katy Perry's Dramatic Path to Forever With Orlando Bloom
As recently as a few weeks ago—or whenever it is she sat down with Paper magazine—Katy Perry wasn't so sure she had full faith in the institute of marriage. She had been there, tried that and, as most everyone knows, her 14-month marriage to Russell Brand has become more infamous for the callous way it ended than for any happiness it may have brought the "Part of Me" artist. Back then, when she first connected with the comedian as he was hosting the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, she "believed in Disney princesses" she told the outlet and the idea of being swept off into happily ever after. Now, though, "I'm very pragmatic and logistical and I am less...

Why the Unbelievable True Story of Abducted in Plain Sight Really Is That Disturbing

What is there left to say about Abducted in Plain Sight? The 2017 documentary that saw new life when it landed on Netflix in January has set the internet a-chattering with its twisted tale of an entire family that fell prey to a charismatic conman 45 years ago. While the inclusion early on of commentary from all five immediate members of the family shows that Jan Broberg, her sisters and her parents physically survived what happened, the web spun for them by their friend and neighbor Robert Berchtold still feels increasingly inescapable as the story unfolds. How they managed to untether themselves from Berchtold's clutches takes up only about 20 minutes of the 90-minute film, and there are...

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Celebrated Valentine's Day in the Best Way - by Getting Engaged
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are engaged! The couple shared the news on Feb. 15, after what looks like a romantic Valentine's Day proposal. Both Katy and Orlando shared a selfie surrounded by heart-shaped balloons, with Katy showing off her giant flower-shaped ring, which features a pink stone in the center. The singer captioned her picture "full bloom," while Orlando went with "lifetimes."

Katy and Orlando have had an on-off romance since 2016, when they were spotted flirting at the Golden Globes, but we didn't see them hit the red carpet as a couple until September 2018. They keep their relationship fairly private, but we have had glimpses of their sweet romance over the years and seen them attend glamorous events together a number of times. We're looking forward to seeing them lots more in the future. Congratulations to the happy couple!

During an interview with Today, which airs on Sunday, Hemsworth, 29, revealed he almost didn’t get the part as Will Blakelee in The Last Song — the role that introduced him to his now wife, 26.

Here's Why You Can Basically Count on a Third Happy Death Day Movie

Here's Why You Can Basically Count on a Third Happy Death Day Movie
When you consider the fact that Happy Death Day was basically an instant hit that quickly earned a second movie, it's easy to see how the film's sequel, Happy Death Day 2U, is set up for success. After all, the insane trailer promises more insane deaths, plenty of laughs, and more than a few scares. All things considered, it's hard to imagine a timeline (ha) in which writer-director Christopher Landon doesn't get the chance to make a third movie. You may think I'm getting ahead of myself, and on some level, you'd be right. But that's only because Universal hasn't officially signed off on a trilogy. That said, there are a few indicators that are giving us a lot of hope.

The main reason we're pretty confident about a third movie is, well, Landon wants to make one. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the creator of the universe said

Ja Rule Just Threatened to Have Another Fyre Festival, Because We Haven't Suffered Enough

Ja Rule Just Threatened to Have Another Fyre Festival, Because We Haven't Suffered Enough
When a movie receives terrible reviews, typically it doesn't get green-lighted for a sequel. That's why we were never tortured by Gigli 2, or a follow-up to The Book of Henry. But apparently Ja Rule either doesn't believe in this logical process, or is out of his damn mind (or both), because he recently teased a second installment of the worst "luxury" music festival that never was: Fyre Fest.

As a reminder, festival-goers - some of whom had paid thousands for their tickets - arrived at the festival site in the Bahamas and discovered a barren, unorganized, trash-covered space strewn with Fema tents that were leftover from the devastation of Hurricane Michael. The doomed event was so bad that it not only inspired two documentaries about the whole disaster but also destroyed the livelihoods of innocent bystanders and landed the festival's chief fraudster, Billy McFarland, in prison.

Ja Rule, who collaborated on Fyre Fest with McFarland,
