Ah, the 1990s. That glorious decade of eyebrow rings, prepaid calling cards, and Blockbuster Video.

That lady really knew how to put the divide between then and now into stark relief.

It’s big, it’s loud, it’s here: feast your eyes on the first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight!

In news that might make you go “Uhh…,” John Turturro is reportedly filming a secret spinoff to The Big Lebowski.

While the actor described the ongoing legal discussions as “very complicated,” he did claim to have the involvement of the Coen Brothers on the film, although not as the directors.
