Every time there’s a new movie starring Juno Temple, I conduct what I like to call The Juno Temple Hair Test. It’s a totally scientific and thoroughly objective test designed to help moviegoers answer one simple question: What is the deal with this movie? By analyzing the volume, style, texture and color of the hairs on the head of everyone’s second favorite British actress with a proclivity for totally bonkers roles (bested only by Eva Green), you can quickly and easily determine what sort of movie you’re about to watch.

Woody Allen is one of the most prolific directors working today: he just had a TV series on Amazon after premiering his most recent film, Cafe Society, at Cannes, and he’s been hard at work on his next movie, starring Justin Timberlake, Kate Winslet, and Juno Temple. That movie hasn’t officially had a title until now, but it was recently revealed that the new Allen film everyone will have on their radars all year will be called Wonder Wheel.
Drunk History has made its way around the block, from web series to Emmy nominations, and Season 4 on Comedy Central may be the most satisfied year yet. Not only do we get a first taste of Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda retelling the famous duel, but the first trailer brings a bevy of celebrities from Elizabeth Olsen to Ronda Rousey.
Even diehard fans of HBO’s Scorsese-Jagger driven Vinyl knew that Season 2 would bring about some significant changes, but it looks like the record skipped after all. Despite setting a new showrunner after a formal Season 2 renewal, HBO has officially abandoned plans for Vinyl, effectively cancelling the prestigious flop.
For all the time and effort HBO’s Vinyl took getting out of the studio, the Martin Scorsese-Mick Jagger joint certainly skipped a few beats in its February debut. That didn’t stop HBO from ordering a second season, but now showrunner Terence Winter will depart, as the ‘70s music drama retools creatively in Season 2.
Let’s face it, when Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger collaborate on a new rock drama at HBO, it’s getting a second season. Still, following an inauspicious start in the ratings, Vinyl has been confirmed for a second season to air in 2017, just one episode into its run.
