"Curb Your Enthusiasm" Season 10 Finally Begins Production

Well this is prettay, prettay, prettay good news: Filming has finally begun on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Season 10.

HBO confirmed to TheWrap production started Friday, 10 months after the premium cable network announced the Larry David-led series had been renewed. No plot details or premiere date was given for the return of the "Seinfeld" co-creator’s neuroses-laced program.

David’s comedy was renewed for a tenth season by HBO last December, with production set to begin in spring 2018 and a yet-to-be-determined debut date yet given. Obviously, something stalled filming for a bit, but hopefully that doesn’t mean you’ll be waiting six years for another season of "Curb" again.

'Halloween' Looks to Scare Up $70M Opening, Helping October 2018 Maintain a Record Pace

'Halloween' Looks to Scare Up $70M Opening, Helping October 2018 Maintain a Record Pace
As of yesterday, October is pacing a massive +42.3% ahead of October 2017. In fact, October 2018 is narrowly outpacing October 2014, the largest October on record, and this weekend should help increase that lead. Universal and Blumhouse's Halloween is poised to deliver what will now be the second largest October opening ever behind Venom, which broke the record only a couple weeks ago. The weekend also sees the nationwide expansion of Fox's The Hate U Give, which is expected to deliver in the mid-to-high single digit millions, but could break out a bit higher after a strong showing in limited release. October 2018 is going big when it comes to new releases and after this weekend the month will feature three of the top ten October releases of all-time after Venom's chart-topping, $80.2 million debut and A Star is Born's $42.9 million opening on the same weekend. Added to the list will be this

‘Black Monday': Showtime Drops Trailer for Stock-Market Crash Comedy on Date’s 31st Anniversary (Video)
Showtime released the first trailer for its new comedy “Black Monday,” right on the 31st anniversary of the worst Stock Market crash in Wall Street history.

The 1980-set series stars Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall. The series takes viewers back to October 19, 1987 – aka Black Monday. To this day, no one knows who “caused it” … until now. Per Showtime, “Black Monday” is the fictional story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling.

In addition to starring, Cheadle will serve as executive producer alongside Caspe, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who will direct the pilot.

15 Hollywood Actors Who Had Epic Fails as Music Stars (Photos)
There are a few (lots of) Hollywood actors that tried venturing out into the musical world. Some (very few) made it work and others… Well, here’s a list of 15 that should’ve just not.

Lindsay Lohan

Lohan debuted her first album “Speak” in 2004 and it actually did pretty well commercially. Her music video for “Rumors” even got nominated for an MTV Video Music Award.

She wasn’t horrible, but she just wasn’t pop star good.

Eddie Murphy

Believe it or not, Eddie Murphy had a low-key music career. You probably know him best from his single “I’m a Believer” off Shrek… and that’s probably it.

He just released a reggae single with Snoop Dogg in 2o13, but like most of his stuff no one’s heard it.

Johnny Depp

Watch the First Trailer for Shawn Garry’s ‘After Elena’ (Exclusive)

Chile’s Storyboard Media, a leader in production and distribution in that country, have given Variety exclusive access to the heartwarming first trailer for the sophomore feature from director Shawn Garry, “After Elena.”

The film tells the story of Roberto, a man in his 70s who has just lost the love of his life, Elena.

To get away, Roberto plans a trip which is interrupted before it has the chance to begin when his children, now in their 30s with kids of their own, return home.

In the trailer we see Roberto, clearly out of sorts, as he tries to cope with the now overflowing house and mundane issues that confront large families with children, issues he hasn’t had to deal with for 15 years.

Why Rihanna Saying No to the Super Bowl Matters (Column)
From the moment news broke that Maroon 5 was to be this year’s Super Bowl halftime show headliner, it seemed clear that there was something more afoot. After all, this is a performance that typically is viewed by even more people who tune into the game itself. And that game is TV’s marquee event of the year, the one remaining broadcast with the extant power to bring together viewers of all stripes, if only to take in the spectacle. The artists booked usually bring a bit of spectacle themselves. While taking nothing away from the success Adam Levine and his band have enjoyed,

‘Walter Presents’ Host Talks Challenge of Bringing Subtitled TV Shows to U.S., Italy

London-based Italian TV buff Walter Iuzzolino has changed the way a significant number of Brits watch TV with his “Walter Presents” on-demand drama service, which he curates and hosts, backed by the U.K.’s Channel 4 which offers hundreds of hours of top notch non-English-language drama. His hybrid — he likes to call it “amphibious” — brand combining linear and digital play has since expanded its footprint to Australia, and more recently to the U.S. and Italy.

‘American Horror Story': Taissa Farmiga Explains Tate and Violet’s ‘Return to Murder House’ Ending
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday’s episode of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse,” “Return to Murder House.”)

The “Return to Murder House” episode of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” had enough callback moments and references to the franchise’s first season to leave longtime Ryan Murphy fans with years worth of material to obsess over. But one moment in particular had Violet (Taissa Farmiga) and Tate (Evan Peters) shippers screaming at their screens: that ending where the two ghostly lovers finally reconcile.

Madison Montgomery (Emma Roberts) came around in the final moments of the eagerly-anticipated crossover episode to blow some magical dust in Ben (Dylan McDermott) and Vivien Harmon’s (Connie Britton) daughter’s eyes, which seemed to help her allow Tate back in to her life after all the violent acts he committed in Season 1 aka “Murder House” — including a school shooting and raping her mother.

Review: Calle 13’s Visitante Reemerges With Wonderfully Madcap ‘Trending Tropics’ Album

The Puerto Rican group Calle 13 are one of modern Latin music’s most-treasured institutions: Over the course of five scrappy, propulsive albums, they were aesthetically omnivorous, politically bracing and even commercially successful, earning a platinum plaque and a smattering of minor hits. Their peers adored them, and no group has won more awards from the Latin Recording Academy.

Calle 13 went on hiatus following the release of 2014’s Multi_Viral, and its members have gradually worked to establish solo identities. The singer iLe struck first, with a handsome, nostalgic full-length titled iLevitable.

Review: How to Dress Well Returns to Distortion on ‘The Anteroom’

In 2016, Tom Krell, the man behind the project How to Dress Well, proclaimed, “there’s been a deficit of joy in music.” After gaining a following with songs that submerged attenuated falsetto pleas beneath a layer of electronics, he was moving “toward directness” on his Care album. The reason? “Because I’m just surrounded by the indirectness and amorphousness and impressionistic character of whatever 21st-century life is.”

Wilson Fisk Gives a Very Trump-esque Speech in ‘Daredevil’ Season 3
(There are big spoilers ahead for “Daredevil” Season 3 on Netflix)

Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), better known in comic book lore as the Kingpin, is not really that much like Donald Trump in general. He’s a lot more cold and calculating, for one thing — it’s largely his brains that make his criminal empire work, whereas few would say that Trump is the kind of guy who does plans in any normal sense.

And for the most part, in Season 3 of Marvel’s “Daredevil” on Netflix, Fisk is content to work largely behind the scenes doing fun and horrifying machinations, staying several steps ahead of Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) for almost the entire season, easily countering every move they make without taking any public action. But in the eleventh episode of season 3 he finally takes center stage and delivers a
