Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer Expected To Drop Monday

Spider-Man: Far From Home Trailer Expected To Drop Monday
A couple of days ago, Tom Holland took to Twitter to share two ominous words: “Monday morning…” And while fans were quick to jump to the conclusion that another Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer might be on the way, there was still some room for doubt, not least because the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel is only one of three films that the actor is confirmed to feature in this year.

Thanks to the official Spider-Man Films Weibo account, however, it’s now looking all but confirmed that Holland was teasing some Far From Home material. Earlier today, Twitter user Gavin Feng posted a screenshot of the Sony-run Chinese account sharing Holland’s post while adding their own vague tease that something big is imminent.

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ on Pace for $67 Million Opening, Double ‘Get Out’ Debut

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ on Pace for $67 Million Opening, Double ‘Get Out’ Debut
Universal/Monkeypaw’s “Us” is blowing by all analysts’ expectations this weekend. On the back of strong pre-release buzz and an opening day total of $29 million, Jordan Peele’s second film is estimated to gross $67 million from 3,741 screens this weekend.

If that estimate holds, not only will “Us” have doubled the opening weekend of Peele’s debut film “Get Out” ($33.3 million), it will set a new opening weekend record for original horror films, beating the $50.2 million of last year’s “A Quiet Place.” It’s also a new openiing record for any original film released in March.

The one somewhat bad note for “Us” is that while critics have been raving about the film with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 95 percent, audiences aren’t quite as enthused as they were for “Get Out.

Kaley Cuoco Just Has 1 Tiny Request for "The Big Bang Theory"'s Series Finale

Kaley Cuoco Just Has 1 Tiny Request for
While it pains me to say this, there are only a few more episodes left until we have to say goodbye to The Big Bang Theory forever. After 12 successful seasons, the CBS sitcom - which is one of the longest-running staples of network TV, by the way - is coming to an end on May 16. I recently got to chat with Kaley Cuoco about what fans can expect from the series finale, and to say I was ecstatic is an understatement. Not only have I been following the gang since Leonard (Johnny Galecki) first laid eyes on Penny (Cuoco) in the hall of their apartment building, but I also feel like I know the cast better than I know my own friends. I've even grown to love Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and caught myself singing "Soft Kitty" to my boyfriend on multiple occasions (don't ask).

Film Review: ‘The Dirt’

Film Review: ‘The Dirt’
A long time ago, the words sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll carried a hint of danger. The lifestyle did, too, but I’m talking about the phrase. It used to sound cool (back around the time the word “cool” sounded cool). But sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll has long since passed into the realm of vintage American catch-phrase banality, like “How’s that workin’ out for you?” And “The Dirt,” the new Netflix rock biopic about the sordid, squalid saga of Mötley Crüe, the royal hair-metal sleaze gods of the ’80s and ’90s, is a movie that reflects the new harmless status of that phrase.

The Dirt” boils over with sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll, whether it’s Vince Neil (Daniel Webber), the snaky leader singer of Mötley Crüe, acting like a horny jackrabbit as he enjoys a backstage boink with every woman who comes near him,

Idris Elba in Talks to Join Andy Serkis in ‘Mouse Guard’

Idris Elba in Talks to Join Andy Serkis in ‘Mouse Guard’
Idris Elba is in negotiations to join Andy Serkis and Thomas Brodie-Sangster in Fox’s fantasy-action movie “Mouse Guard” with “Maze Runner’s” Wes Ball directing.

Fox is planning a live-action movie through performance capture technology employed in the “Planet of the Apes” films, in which Serkis starred as the ape leader Caesar. David Peterson created, wrote, and illustrated the “Mouse Guard” series, which launched in 2006 and is set in a medieval times world without humans. The stories center on a brotherhood of mice sworn to serve their fellow mice.

Fox started development on the movie, based on the “Mouse Guard” graphic novel series, in 2016. Matt Reeves, director of “War for the Planet of the Apes,” is producing “Mouse Guard” through his 6th and Idaho production company along with Ross Richie and Stephen Christy, both of Boom! Studios — the publisher of “Mouse Guard.” Joe Hartwick Jr. is also producing.

Does Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Does Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?
It’s hard to believe it’s only been two years since writer/director/producer Jordan Peele blessed us all with his feature debut “Get Out.” And now Peele is back to blow the doors off our minds with another masterfully twisty horror flick with “Us.”

But “Us” is a little bit less straightforward than “Get Out” was, offering up what appears on the surface to be a fairly simple but ingenious twist on the home invasion formula — our protagonist family of four, led by Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, is forced to face off against their own evil doppelgangers. But the further you get into the film, the clearer it becomes that there is so much more going on here than you could have imagined.

So as the credits begin to roll and you’re trying to figure out what it was you just saw, you’re gonna

It’s Super Weird That ‘Captain Marvel’ Doesn’t Have Anything to Do With ‘Avengers: Endgame’

It’s Super Weird That ‘Captain Marvel’ Doesn’t Have Anything to Do With ‘Avengers: Endgame’
(Heavy spoilers ahead for “Captain Marvel.”)

We just came off a long, painful nine-month wait for “Captain Marvel” after the pair of devastating cliffhangers that concluded “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp” last summer. We’re absolutely dying to see how this story continues, and we figured “Captain Marvel,” being placed so closely to “Avengers: Endgame” on the calendar, would be a part of it.

So last summer, we here at TheWrap wrote a bunch of speculative pieces in response to that insane “Avengers: Infinity War” cliffhanger. The most popular of those — and by far the longest at 2200 words — was about how “Captain Marvel,” hitting theaters less than two months before the then-unnamed “Avengers: Endgame,” would likely have some deep ties to the Avengers’ battle against Thanos.

And yet, somehow, it just doesn’t. “Captain Marvel” has absolutely no apparent relevance to the current greater plot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Barbra Streisand Clarifies ‘Leaving Neverland’ Comments After Backlash

Barbra Streisand Clarifies ‘Leaving Neverland’ Comments After Backlash
Barbra Streisand issued a statement Saturday clarifying her controversial comments regarding the two men who accused Michael Jackson of sexual abuse in the documentary Leaving Neverland.

In comments made to the Times UK that were immediately met with condemnation on social media, Streisand seemed to downplay the molestation accusations and their impact on Wade Robson and James Safechuck – “You can say ‘molested’, but those children, as you heard say, they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them” – and

Barbra Streisand Clarifies Michael Jackson Remarks After Backlash: ‘I Feel Nothing But Sympathy for Them’
Barbra Streisand has released a statement clarifying remarks she made about the recent allegations of underage sexual abuse against Michael Jackson.

“To be crystal clear, there is no situation or circumstance where it is Ok for the innocence of children to be taken advantage of by anyone,” the statement reads. “The stories these two young men shared were painful to hear, and I feel nothing but sympathy for them. The single most important role of being a parent is to protect their children. It’s clear that the parents of the two young men were also victimized and seduced by fame and fantasy.”

Streisand had made comments to the Times in the U.K. ahead of her July concert at London’s Hyde Park, saying that she believes Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who allege in the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland” that they were abused by Jackson as children. “Oh absolutely,

‘Sunset’ Review: Light Fades on Empires and Evil in Scathing Historical Drama
László Nemes is a filmmaker who keeps his friends close and his cameras closer. The Hungarian director’s devastating 2015 debut, Son of Saul, distinguished itself not just by sticking right next to its main character but virtually breathing down his neck — the fact that our guide was a Sonderkommando at Auschwitz, grimly trying to survive a waking nightmare, only heightened the effect. The actor Geza Rohrig’s face took up most of the frame’s real estate and blocked out the horror you could hear happening offscreen; it also made

Adele Plays Musical Shots at NYC Gay Bar, Jennifer Lawrence Tackles Her When She Loses (Video)
Adele and Jennifer Lawrence really lived it up on Friday night as they hit up New York City gay bar Pieces, where the “Hello” singer played a round of musical shots… and was promptly tackled by her bestie when she lost.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the duo went to the Greenwich Village bar during a drag show hosted by Brita Filter. Adele took part in musical shots, singing to Kylie Minogue’s “Can’t Get You Out of My Head.” When the music stopped, she didn’t get a glass, so JLaw pushed her to the ground and said, “How could you lose?!”

Someone in the crowd then told her, “Jennifer, this isn’t ‘The Hunger Games’!”
