Did Tom Holland Reveal The Title Of The ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Sequel?
As seen in various videos with his Infinity War co-stars, the charming Tom Holland hasn’t been the best at keeping secrets when it comes to movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Keeping up with his superhero power of sharing secrets, he may have — intentionally or unintentionally — revealed the title to the Homecoming sequel: Spider-Man: Far From Home.

In an Instagram video, he posted while at Seattle's Ace Comic-Con with the caption “Sorry for no announcements, but…

David Lynch Says More ‘Twin Peaks’ Is “Calling Him.”

David Lynch Says More ‘Twin Peaks’ Is “Calling Him.”
Twin Peaks: The Return” felt, for many like this generation’s “2001: A Space Odyssey.” It broke the rules of television and Lynch’s vision was so far out, it almost felt like a broadcast from another dimension. The mosaic of characters the legendary director presented to us was part of a greater whole, one that felt almost too impossible to describe.

As Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) finally found his way down the show’s never-ending rabbit hole of colliding cosmos, he did so by finding a way to redeem Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), even by saving her life, seemingly going back in time and changing the tragic events of 1989.

‘Deadpool 2’ Crosses $300 Million – and Picks Up Baby Boomer Fans Too
On its sixth Friday in theaters, “Deadpool 2” joined its predecessor in an elite box office club as it became only the fifth film to gross $300 million at the domestic box office while holding an R rating.

Along with the two “Deadpool” films, the other movies in this group are “The Passion of the Christ,” “American Sniper” and last year’s remake of “It.”

While “Deadpool 2” won’t pass the domestic total of the first “Deadpool” $363 million, it has proven to be a major moneymaker in a crowded summer market, beating out “Solo: A Star Wars Story” on the domestic charts by $100 million. The film will also pass “It” on the global box office chats this weekend with over $700 million worldwide.

Since Deadpool first hit the big screen two years ago, he has steadily won over

‘Wire’ Creator David Simon Rips Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey After Return From Suspension: ‘Die of Boils, @Jack’
David Simon returned from his Twitter suspension with a fury on Friday, calling out CEO Jack Dorsey for what he sees as the platform’s hypocrisy in how it deals with trolls.

“Die of boils, @jack. Yup. There it is. The sum total of my crime against Twitter,” tweeted the creator of HBO series “The Wire,” “Treme” and “The Deuce,” in a lengthy thread (which you can read below). “I’ve told you to drop dead, as I told libelers and liars to drop dead. You can say that constitutes a threat, but that would be empty and embarrassing. I hold no dominion over life & death.”

Simon wrote on his personal website two weeks ago that he was suspended from the platform for telling Twitter trolls to drop dead, or as he put it: “Slander is cool, brutality is acceptable. But the hyperbolic and comic hope that a just god

MTV’s ‘Catfish’ Resumes After Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Host Found ‘Not Credible’

MTV’s ‘Catfish’ Resumes After Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Host Found ‘Not Credible’
MTV has resumed production on “Catfish” after it found sexual misconduct allegations against host and executive producer Nev Schulman to be “not credible and without merit.”

“Although we never received a formal complaint, MTV and Critical Content immediately engaged an independent third party investigator. The independent investigator found the allegations made in the YouTube videos to be not credible and without merit,” an MTV spokesperson said in a statement to TheWrap Saturday. “Given the results of the investigation, ‘Catfish’ will resume filming. We take these matters very seriously and are committed to providing a safe working environment.”

MTV had briefly suspended production last month after two YouTube videos were posted by Ayissha Morgan, a woman who appeared on the show in 2015. In the videos, she alleged that a man she dubbed “Jack” made repeated sexual advances and lewd comments while they filmed her episode. Morgan did not identify Schulman by name,

Wondering How Pretty Little Liars Connects to The Perfectionists? Let's Break It Down
When Freeform announced a Pretty Little Liars spinoff called Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, we had a lot of questions and a few big reservations. How could the spinoff possibly live up to original show, which aired its big finale last year? And how will the characters of Alison Dilaurentis and Mona Vanderwaal play into The Perfectionists, which is based on Sara Shepard's 2015 novel, given that the source material doesn't contain those characters at all?

We caught up with Shepard, the author of both The Perfectionists and the Pretty Little Liars books, at Popsugar Play/Ground to see what she could tell us.

"The book is about a group of perfectionists who unite against a single person who is doing bad things to everyone, and something terrible and unexpected happens," Shepard said. "That is very much the show premise as well. But some characters have been switched, and there are more male leads.

‘Nobodies’ Canceled By TV Land After 2 Seasons

‘Nobodies’ Canceled By TV Land After 2 Seasons
TV Land has opted not to renew comedy series Nobodies for a third season.

The series, executive produced by Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, originated on TV Land, which renewed it for a second season in January 2017, ahead of the comedy’s March 2017 debut. After one modestly rated season on TV Land, Nobodies was relocated to sister channel Paramount Network for Season 2.

Nobodies‘ sophomore season was slated to premiere on March 29, a couple of weeks into the run of Paramount Network’s Heathers. When the latter was pushed (it was eventually permanently shelved), Nobodies was on its own, and after two low-rated airings on Paramount Network, the series returned to TV Land where its numbers perked up and Season 2 finished a fraction ahead of Season 1 in Live+same day. Still, the comedy remained behind TV Land’s flagship original comedy series, Younger, recently renewed for a sixth season, and Teachers.

David Lynch Thinks Donald Trump ‘Could Go Down as One of the Greatest Presidents in History’

David Lynch Thinks Donald Trump ‘Could Go Down as One of the Greatest Presidents in History’
Never shy of saying something eye-raising, “Twin Peaks” creator David Lynch thinks Donald Trump could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history. No, really.

“He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much,” Lynch said of the political establishment in a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian. “No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.”

But that doesn’t mean he approves of the job Trump has done thus far. Lynch explained his stance by arguing that Trump’s rise has pointed out how flawed the system and politicians have been, which has opened the door for other, better, political outsiders.

How Quentin Tarantino Can Diversify the Very White Cast of ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

How Quentin Tarantino Can Diversify the Very White Cast of ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
When a picture began circulating of the incredible cast for Quentin Tarantino’s feverishly anticipated “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” — including everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to Brad Pitt to Al Pacino to Margot Robbie — fans were understandably thrilled. But their excitement was followed by a wave of concern: Is the cast really going to be this white?

It’s possible. The film centers around the Manson murders, and the story is a very white one: Charles Manson’s followers and their victims were white, leaving Tarantino few casting options.

Fortunately, Tarantino does have some opportunities to cast at least two non-white characters. And they may be two of the most interesting people involved in the story.

‘Portlandia’: Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein Pick Their Proudest Musical Moments

‘Portlandia’: Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein Pick Their Proudest Musical Moments
It doesn’t take a lot of dot-connecting genius to figure why music was a crucial component of “Portlandia,” which recently wrapped its eighth and final season. The host city is a rock town, but more than that, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein came of age in the punk scene, although that was her initial claim to fame and his secret identity. They incorporated so many original songs into the IFC series that you could just about make a claim that it beat “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” through the gate as a major weekly musical-comedy series.

How Long Will TV and Film’s Boom Market for Female Stories Last?

How Long Will TV and Film’s Boom Market for Female Stories Last?
Nantucket, Mass. — The #MeToo moment and the push for gender parity in Hollywood has opened doors for women artists in the film and TV business in the past year, but there are concerns that the appetite for female-led stories could be a “worryingly trendy conversation.” That’s how showrunner Sera Gamble put during a panel session Saturday at the Nantucket Film Festival that focused on the status of women filmmakers, actors and writers.

After so many years of hearing “no” to projects revolving around protagonists who are female or persons of color, it’s pleasantly surprising to be asked to bring in diverse material director-producer Miranda Bailey said during the “Women Beyond the Words” panel moderated by NPR host Ophira Eisenberg. Bailey was joined by Gamble, actor-producer Alysia Reiner, actor Jeanne Tripplehorn, and documentary filmmaker Nancy Schwartzman.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Bailey, “I’m being told by every single studio please come in,

Film Review: ‘Ideal Home’

Film Review: ‘Ideal Home’
“Ideal Home,” a featherweight big-screen sitcom in which Steve Coogan and Paul Rudd play testy romantic partners who wind up as parental caretakers of a 10-year-old boy, is the perfect example of how a movie can be progressive and retrograde at the same time. It’s supposed to feel cutting edge that Coogan and Rudd, who are both terrific actors, adopt a no-big-deal posture toward portraying a gay couple. If only the movie itself were as nonchalant about it! Written and directed by Andrew Fleming, who has had a fluky, hit-or-miss career but built a good comic pedestal for Coogan a decade ago with the dementedly funny “Hamlet 2,” “Ideal Home” is never not painfully aware that its two main characters are gay. It’s a cozy duet of tit-for-tat bitchery that, at times, carries the nagging whisper of a liberal minstrel show.

Instead of treating Erasmus (Coogan), a grandiose

Seth Rogen Says He Rejected Paul Ryan’s Request for a Photo

Seth Rogen Says He Rejected Paul Ryan’s Request for a Photo
Like most of Hollywood, Seth Rogen has made his displeasure with the current administration and its activities clear. And evidently, that displeasure extends to denying photo ops to Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.

Rogen recounted the story Friday while on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” The “Preacher” co-creator, as a longtime proponent and advocate for Alzheimer’s research, had been asked to speak about brain health at Mitt Romney’s annual summit. While there, he was approached by two “very nice,” “very white” young men who asked for a photo.

The couple, who announced their engagement last September, met on the set of the hit HBO series, when Leslie joined the show in Season 2 as the wildling, Ygritte. Harington’s Jon Snow and Ygritte also had an on-screen romance over the three seasons that Leslie was on the show, until — in typically grim George R.R. Martin fashion — Ygritte met her tragic end in the fourth season.

At least the two got a real-life happy ending. One Twitter user even poked fun at another,
