Peter Sarsgaard often plays guys you can’t help but hate. From his ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ character to his ‘An Education’ con man to his Chuck Traynor in ‘Lovelace,’ Sarsagaard has mastered playing seedy jerks who pray on the weaknesses of others. In Antoine Fuqua’s ‘The Magnificent Seven,’ Sarsgaard takes on the role of the bad guy once more.

In high school there was almost nothing more exciting than a school fight. It starts with a buzz of murmuring, then a frenzy breaks out as a swarm of bobbling backpacks rush to the center of the quad to see the brawl go down. The only thing that would make that refreshing break from youthful ennui even more thrilling is if that fight was between teachers. And thus, we have Fist Fight.

After a season’s worth of buildup and fake-outs, Mr. Robot capped off its Emmy win with another mind-boggling finale’s worth of light answers and more questions. Perhaps most surprising of all was the “post-credits” scene that saw not one, but three unexpected returns, while creator Sam Esmail lays out both Star Wars and Donald Trump influences on Season 3.

With Warcraft out of the way, Duncan Jones now has time to finally start production on his passion project, Mute. Mute is a sequel of sorts to 2009’s Moon, although the idea for a Berlin-set futuristic sci-fi was germinating before Moon started. The project kept being put on hold again and again, as Jones was busy with Source Code and then this year’s Warcraft, but today he announced that he’s going to start shooting Mute next week.

So far, the DC cinematic universe hasn’t had a great start. With reviews of Man of Steel, and this year’s Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad leaning towards the negative, the folks in charge are trying anything they can think of to get their next few films in development back on track.

Perhaps the only South Park trivia cited so often as its six-day turnaround might be the one time creators exceeded it, owing to a power outage at South Park Studios. As it turns out, last week’s 20th anniversary premiere very nearly added another footnote to the record, as malfunctioning audio delayed “Member Berries” right up to an hour before showtime.
