Conan slaps overly concerned Sonic fans with aggressively bouncing hedgehog wang

Conan slaps overly concerned Sonic fans with aggressively bouncing hedgehog wang

Yesterday the world was introduced to the new (and, pretty inarguably, improved) version of Sonic The Hedgehog, set to debut in theaters in February of next year. Responding to fan complaints, this version of the infamously speedy video game hedgehog has been significantly redesigned to look more like his original digital incarnation, and less like someone asked a team of animators...

Rapper Kodak Black sentenced to 46 months for "making false statements to acquire firearms"

Rapper Kodak Black sentenced to 46 months for "making false statements to acquire firearms"

No offense to singles like “Zeze” and “Tunnel Vision,” but the criminal history of rapper Kodak Black is arguably a lot more exciting than his discography; since turning 18 in 2015, the Dying To Live artist has racked up a truly spectacular listing of child endangerment, sexual assault, drug, violence, and weapons charges, many of them broadcast on Instagram for the convenience of both fans...

Nickelodeon cashes in with Netflix

Nickelodeon cashes in with Netflix

With the launch of Disney+ yesterday , the modern streaming wars have now well and truly begun. (Or whatever Yoda-esque mangling of syntax you happen to prefer.) Although HBO and parent company WarnerMedia have yet to join the fray officially—with HBO Max set to arrive some time in the first half of 2020—all of the other major players have now staked out their territory, with Netflix as the...

Dick Cheney on Christian Bale's Vice performance: "Tell him he’s a dick"

Dick Cheney on Christian Bale's Vice performance: "Tell him he’s a dick"

Christian Bale may have earned the love of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and a number of critics (not necessarily us , but many enjoyed it) for his turn as former Vice President Dick Cheney in Adam McKay’s Vice , but there’s definitely one person who won’t be slow-clapping in his direction anytime soon: former Vice President Dick Cheney.

While chatting with Yahoo, the Ford v....

The Witcher to witch again with an early second-season renewal at Netflix

The Witcher to witch again with an early second-season renewal at Netflix

Presumably operating on the theory that people really like watching handsome, silver-haired men relax in bath tubs after chopping monsters apart, Netflix announced today that it’s already granted a second season to its upcoming fantasy epic The Witcher , before the first season has even had a chance to debut. While it’s not entirely uncommon for a show to get this kind of vote of...

Romany Malco and Sonequa Martin-Green enter the holiday rom-com arena with Netflix's Holiday Rush

Next up: Holiday Rush starring A Million Little Things’ Romany Malco and Star Trek: Discovery’s. The streaming giant released the trailer today, which you can check out above. Here’s the synopsis, straight from...

Making Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was really damn hard—who knew?

Making Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was really damn hard—who knew?

It’s Animation Week over at Vulture, and they’re running some great stuff (case in point: this terrific piece about Wile E. Coyote). But top of that list is a collection of answers to a single question: What’s the hardest thing you ever animated?

All the answers are interesting—the dressage sequence from BoJack Horseman, Rick being depressed on Rick And Morty, animating water in general—but...

All those A24 movies you like will premiere exclusively on Showtime

All those A24 movies you like will premiere exclusively on Showtime

If you’re the kind of person who compiles annual lists of the year’s best films (what are you, some kind of nerd?), chances are A24 is behind at least one or two films on your lists in recent years. The distribution company behind acclaimed titles like Moonlight , Green Room , and Lady Bird has just closed an output deal with Showtime, making it the exclusive home of the above films—and then...

Disney+ already has over 10 million users

Disney+ already has over 10 million users

It may have suffered some technical hiccups on launch, but Disney+ is already massively successful for Disney, which reports that over 10 million people signed up for the streaming service in its first day. Variety notes that this is well over analysts’ projections, which had Disney+ netting 8 million subscribers by the end of 2019. That number could still be accurate, however, as it’s...

BarkBox is fine with you thinking its new dog toy looks like a Fleshlight

BarkBox is fine with you thinking its new dog toy looks like a Fleshlight

Last week, Barkbox, a monthly dog pampering subscription service providing various toys and treats for your pooch, unveiled its “Overstuffed” November product line-up. Most of the items were pretty innocuous—Rabbit and sweet potato-flavored jerkies and a turducken stuffed animal? Adorable and delicious!)—but one entry in particular caught more than a few customers’ eye: a “Big Honkin’ Pigs...

Robert De Niro responds to criticisms of The Irishman's inaccuracies

Robert De Niro responds to criticisms of The Irishman's inaccuracies

Anytime you make a movie (or any piece of art), you open yourself up to criticisms of said art. That’s especially true of historical dramas and films based on actual events. Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman opens itself up to additional criticisms, as the filmmaker’s long-developing drama is told from the perspective of one person in particular: former union official and mob hitman Frank...

Snap into this video of David Arquette holding a séance for "Macho Man" Randy Savage

Snap into this video of David Arquette holding a séance for "Macho Man" Randy Savage

Once upon a time, David Arquette’s role in the late ‘90s wrestling comedy Ready To Rumble turned him into both a fixture of WCW programming and a symbol of the company’s creative downfall, which many cite as the moment the actor won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. What’s become clear in recent years, however, is that Arquette really is a diehard wrestling fan, so much so that he’s...

Oh thank god, Tom Hanks really is that nice

Oh thank god, Tom Hanks really is that nice

Today, November 19, is apparently World Kindness Day, which makes it an appropriate day to read this not-astonishing/astonishing profile of Tom Hanks by New York Times Magazine columnist Taffy Brodesser-Akner. It’s not astonishing because it’s a story that is, at heart, about how Tom Hanks is a fundamentally decent person, and that’s not something that seems like a revelation. The piece even...

Pedro Pascal reveals the real name of the Mandalorian from The Mandalorian

Pedro Pascal reveals the real name of the Mandalorian from The Mandalorian

We learned a few things in the premiere episode of The Mandalorian , which debuted yesterday with the launch of Disney+. Like, for instance, there is a creature in the Star Wars universe that’s called a “blurrg,” and it definitely looks like the physical manifestation of Liz Lemon’s frequent expression of exasperation. And—no spoilers here—there was that neat reveal at the end of the episode,...

Harry Styles announces 2020 tour with Jenny Lewis, King Princess

Harry Styles announces 2020 tour with Jenny Lewis, King Princess

Harry Styles is basically following the cyclical, tried-and-true protocol of pop stardom: release a decent single , snag an SNL hosting gig , announce a long-awaited new album , and then take the act on the road. While Styles still has to slog (or sail gloriously, which is totally possible) through his double-duty appearance at 8H this Saturday, the “Lights Up” performer has already...

If you're a great character actor, you've probably sat behind a desk in a Coen Brothers movie

If you're a great character actor, you've probably sat behind a desk in a Coen Brothers movie

The Coen Brothers have an eye for talent. Frances McDormand, Oscar Isaac, and Hailee Steinfeld scored their breakout roles in the duo’s films, and the filmmakers have made constant collaborators out of the esteemed likes of George Clooney, Scarlett Johannson, Jeff Bridges, Billy Bob Thornton, and Holly Hunter. But the well of talent rounding out the fringes of their reels runs deep—character...

Sir Patrick Stewart spills on Picard, the STNG boys in Vegas, and hanging with Beatles

The universe may or may not deserve Sir Patrick Stewart, but we’ll take him anyway. Appearing on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, ostensibly to promote Charlie’s Angels , the latest Hollywood property he’s classed up just a bit, Stewart was his twinkly best, giving Kimmel ad everyone involved essentially everything they could have hoped for. To wit:

He and his Star Trek: The Next Generation guy...

HBO Max is really planning a Friends reunion special

HBO Max is really planning a Friends reunion special

The Friends friends love to hang out these days, but it’s typically only on Instagram and not in an actual revival series where its easier for all of the characters to ignore their children now that they’re older, nobody talks about Joey’s adventures in Los Angeles, and Ross has been married a half-dozen more times since the end of the original series (a couple to Rachel, maybe one to...

After 55 years, Days Of Our Lives seems to be on its last legs

The world of daytime television might be about to dramatically change, with TV Line reporting that the entire cast of Days Of Our Lives has been released from their contracts, seemingly indicating that the long-running soap’s days are numbered. By the end of November, when production wraps on the show’s 55th year, it will have banked enough episodes to last through next summer, but it still...

Will Ferrell returns to Studio 8H to host SNL for the fifth time

Will Ferrell returns to Studio 8H to host SNL for the fifth time

It’s always going to feel a little odd when a returningSaturday Night Live alumnus is ceremoniously entered into the Five-Timers Club. It’s especially odd for someone like Will Ferrell, who is a Studio 8H legend that was so embedded in the fabric of the late-night sketch show from 1995 to 2002. In any case, Deadline reports that Ferrell is set to host for the fifth time on November 23, which...
