Over the course of the last few seasons, the twentysomething girls of Girls have hardly changed at all, which makes them more empathetic, if a little frustrating — but only because, if you’ve ever been in your early 20s, you can see some of yourself in each of them. If insanity is repeating the same behaviors/actions over and over and expecting different results, then you might consider these women (and yes, the men, too) insane. But tonight’s episode brings some real signifiers of change, even if we remain skeptical.

IFC Films
Tonight’s Best Picture and Best Director race at the 2015 Oscars basically boils down to Richard Linklater’s Boyhood and Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman. Filmed over the course of 12 years by Linklater, Boyhood is a remarkable accomplishment, but it’s not a film that immediately inspires thoughts of a sequel. Although he previously expressed no desire in making a sequel, Linklater has now changed his tune, revealing that Boyhood follow-up is quite possible.

Before the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Hugh Jackman said that he was pretty positive that he wouldn’t be playing Wolverine much longer. But now that the actor is appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse and starring in a third Wolverine solo film — which will mark his ninth time playing the hero on screen — he seems to have changed his tune. Jackman says he wants to play Wolverine forever, and with that attitude and his massive appeal, Fox just might let him.

Last night marked the 35th annual Razzie Awards, a kind of counter-programming to tonight’s Oscars, honoring the absolute worst movies and stars in 2014. To be fair, the annual list of Razzie nominees indicates that the people behind these awards aren’t watching enough movies — there are plenty of movies from last year that were worse than Transformers: Age of Extinction, for instance. Kirk Cameron topped this year’s list of “winners,” with Cameron Diaz and Annie not far behind.

Both that film and the other standalone project have also been rumored to tell the story of young Han Solo. According to a new report, Disney has their sights set on Kingsman: The Secret Service’s breakout star Taron Egerton for the part of young Solo.

‘Kill Me Three Times’ Red Band Trailer: Simon Pegg Is a Hitman With a Killer Mustache

EDIT

We know Simon Pegg best for his more comedic roles, but he’s occasionally shown us a bit of his darker side, most recently with his particularly cynical role in Edgar Wright’s The World’s End. But his new film, Kill Me Three Times, takes Pegg full throttle to the dark side as a hitman rocking a pretty sweet mustache and toting a huge gun. The new red band trailer spares no bloody expense in illustrating this darkly comedic tale of violence and plots gone awry.
