In a bit of news that will shock absolutely no one, Paramount is reportedly eyeing an awards season release date for Martin Scorsese's new film. Though we've yet to see a trailer — or even an official plot synopsis — for the director's long-developing passion project, we do know that it's definitely hitting theaters sometime this year. And now we might have a better idea of when.
It shouldn’t be very surprising that a guy who killed his own father in cold blood is a dark, effed up dude. Yet, this latest news about Kylo Ren somehow paints a picture of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens villain as even more disturbing than we originally thought.
There’s a Hollywood way of thinking when it comes to franchises and reboots: Give the audience more of the same, but…different. Stick to what fans love about the original property, while also giving them something a little new. The same concept could be translated to personal growth throughout our 20s: We remain the same, but ever-so-slightly change over time. That change comes at the speed of molasses as we resentfully trudge through maturity, much like the women of HBO’s Girls. Season 5 brings some change, sure, but it is mostly more of the same — not that that’s a bad thing.
The latest film from Mud and Take Shelter director Jeff Nichols is set to debut at SXSW next month, but you won't have to wait long to see what's so special about Midnight Special, as it hits theaters about a week after its festival premiere. A new trailer for the sci-fi indie has arrived, further teasing the mystery and desperation surrounding one very interesting little boy.
The penultimate year of HBO’s Girls is nearly upon us, and Season 5 isn’t wasting any time diving Marnie-first into the awkward. Our first full synopsis for the season puts a wedding off the bat, with plenty of friction between Adam and Hannah’s new boyfriend, also unveiling guest stars and a budding new combination.
The moment Adam Driver was announced as the first SNL host of 2016, we knew a Star Wars: The Force Awakens sketch would be coming, and the NBC mainstay didn’t disappoint. Spoofing Undercover Boss with Kylo Ren was delightful, but who knew Driver had such a tough time keeping a straight face? Watch this SNL behind-the-scenes video to see for yourself.
HBO’s Girls may come to an end in the next few years, but Hannah and co. have so much left to learn. So, so much. We’re not far ahead either, as the new trailer and poster reveal guest stars from Aidy Bryant to Corey Stoll, and all the Hannah you’ve come to expect.
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Adam Driver hosting 2016’s first episode of SNL, a Kylo Ren sketch of some kind was inevitable. After all, you don't get the actor who plays the villain in one of the biggest movies of all time to appear on your comedy variety show and not have him reprise that character. And we'll give the show this much: we never would have predicted a faux episode of Undercover Boss set on Starkiller Base, with the angry, murderous Kylo Ren going undercover amongst his troops as a radar technician named Matt.
Adam Driver is kind of a big deal right now, in case you didn’t know. As the new baddie in the Star Wars universe, Driver went from indie favorite to blockbuster star almost overnight, which is a relief because I’ve been on his bandwagon for the last few years and it’s been a little lonely over here. Driver made his SNL debut this weekend in the first episode of 2016, delivering a consistently wonderful episode that tackles everything from cat videos to Kylo Ren and...porn doctors. Read on for our ranking of this week’s SNL sketches from best to worst.
We’re not entirely sure why SNL decided to riff on Disney’s Aladdin in this week’s episode. It’s not like the 1992 animated movie has entered the national conversation again for some reason. If anything, this feels like someone on the writing staff rewatched the movie with his or her family over the show’s holiday break and came back with an idea or two. The result: the least timely parody you’ve ever seen! Although it is pretty funny and will appeal directly to those click-happy millennials.
