There’s no silence quieter than the one in a movie theater during an bad comedy. At times during Mother’s Day, director Garry Marshall’s newest debasement of a beloved holiday, a hush fell over the theater to rival the quietude at a Benedictine monastery. When the laughter finally came, it’s always at the movie’s expense. This disaster is less deliberately funny than the last movie titled Mother’s Day, and that was a violent horror film.

The first trailer for Money Monster has arrived online, promising a tense thriller unfolding in real time starring George Clooney as a financial expert / TV personality who is taken hostage — live, on the air — by Jack O’Connell, while the whole world watches. The film definitely looks like a promising follow-up from director Jodie Foster, who previously helmed the Mel Gibson dramedy The Beaver and, more recently, episodes of Orange Is the New Black.

“He can change his name. He can dump his car. I will still find him.” Julia Roberts is not even close to messing around in the new trailer for Secret in Their Eyes, Billy Ray’s remake of Juan Jose Campanella’s gripping Spanish film that won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2009. Secret in Their Eyes looks similar in tone to Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners, featuring plenty of gut-wrenching drama and a revenge-minded, grieving parent.

A couple of weeks ago, Forbes revealed its annual list of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, with Robert Downey Jr. effortlessly landing the top spot. This week, the publication has released the list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, with Jennifer Lawrence taking the number one spot followed by Scarlett Johansson — hardly surprising, but what makes this list interesting is that many of the women on it earn far less than their male counterparts.

What is the worst franchise in Hollywood? Transformers? Alvin and the Chipmunks? Underworld? They’re all pretty crummy, but they pale before the abject awfulness of the unnamed franchise Garry Marshall’s been working on for the last couple years, where he takes a holiday everyone loves, cast a bunch of movie stars everyone loves, and puts them in a terrible, terrible movie that everyone hates (but which make a ton of money). First came Valentine’s Day featuring Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, and Jamie Foxx, and it was bad. Then there was New Year’s Day, with Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, and Robert freaking De Niro and it was, somehow, much, much worse. Now Marshall’s reign of calendarian terror will continue with Mother’s Day.

Secret in Their Eyes is based on the acclaimed, Oscar-winning Argentinian film The Secret in Their Eyes (differentiated by the titular “The”), and the new English remake looks like it may very well be gunning for an Oscar, too. Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor star in the upcoming dramatic thriller, which centers on a brutal murder and the pursuit of justice that follows.

Back in 2013, our collective hearts melted as five year-old Miles Scott was granted his ultimate wish through the Make-a-Wish foundation: to become Batman for a single day. With the help of the city of San Francisco, thousands of volunteers, and President Barack Obama, Scott became the caped crusader and successfully defended the citizens of San Francisco. Miles Scott’s story is the focus of a new documentary premiering this week at Sundance-adjacent film festival Slamdance, but it won’t be the only time his story is told on the big screen—Julia Roberts is also making a movie about our beloved Batkid.

HBO's 'Game of Thrones' will take off this coming Sunday for Memorial Day, but HBO won't exactly shut down, instead airing Ryan Murphy's buzzworthy stage-adapted period drama 'The Normal Heart' in its place. The trailers have all sold us on the star-studded drama chronicling the AIDS outbreak of the '80s, but now HBO has released three brand-new clips to put things over the mark.
