Fox has canceled the grisly police procedural series The Following, which officially makes the upcoming season finale a series finale. Although initially a hit that quickly became known for its dark subject matter and violence that pushed the boundaries of network television, the show’s dwindling audience ultimately doomed the series, which will not return for a fourth season.

Captain America: Civil War is in production, and it has the official synopsis and cast list to prove it. The film, which will see Captain America come to blows with Iron Man, already feels like one of the boldest entries on the Marvel horizon.

The new Vacation may bear the same name as the old Vacation, but it’s actually a sequel, taking place a few decades after the first ill-fated Griswold family trip to Walley World.

Warner Bros.
When we got our first look at Jared Leto’s Joker a few weeks ago, the internet was torn asunder by rabid conversation. The bulk of the dialogue was about those tattoos and whether or not Batman’s arch-nemesis would ever get inked in the first place. Truth be told, it is hard to imagine a psychotic clown villain chilling in a Gotham City tattoo parlor for a few hours while he gets “Disturbed” inked on his skin. However, a newly leaked image reveals a potential origin for those tattoos and gives us another look at Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

Jackson and Jennifer Jason Leigh in all of their weathered, western glory. It also showcases Russell and Jackson’s spectacular facial hair, both of which seem to be battling for dominance (Russell has the edge if you ask us).
