Zoe Saldana to star in Reese Witherspoon’s new Netflix production, From Scratch

Reese Witherspoon’s Oprah-like efforts to take over multiple worlds of media continue. She’s drawing on a volume from her own Reese’s Book Club to create a new Netflix limited series: Tembi Locke’s autobiographical romance From Scratch, which sounds like a cross between Under The Tuscan Sun and Love Story. As Variety describes it, the story “follows an American woman as she falls in love with...

Gamora putting on lipstick is now a weirdly versatile meme

[Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame below.]

The actors involved with Avengers: Endgame have more or less thrown out the whole “don’t spoil” warning now that opening weekend has come and gone. They’ve been posting a ton of behind-the-scenes pictures and videos, including a really “illegal” one from Chris Pratt and a women of Marvel lunch photos from Robert Downey Jr. And Zoe Saldana has been doing...

With Guardians Of The Galaxy, Marvel made household names out of interstellar second-stringers
Age Of HeroesWith Age Of Heroes, Tom Breihan picks the most important superhero movie of every year, starting with the genre’s early big-budget moments and moving onto the multiplex-crushing monsters of today.  

Marvel was feeling itself. That’s the only real explanation. The comic book company had recovered from bankruptcy, blown out the idea of what a movie franchise could be, and been...

Luckily, it’s all for a good cause, as Kimmel, in conjunction with noted do-gooder and occasional rock icon Bono’s AIDS-fighting charity (RED), has raised millions over the years to help...

Zach Galifianakis is a tender-hearted Bigfoot in first trailer for Laika's Missing Link

Zach Galifianakis is a tender-hearted Bigfoot in first trailer for Laika's Missing Link

Bigfoot was all the rage a few years back, with Exists and Willow Creek both mining horror from the monster’s considerable mythos. Now, Laika, the stop-motion studio behind innovative flicks like Coraline and Kubo And The Two Strings, is bringing a comic edge to Sasquatch. Missing Link comes from ParaNorman director Chris Butler, who told Nerdist that he was aiming for Raiders Of...

Baby Groot kills with cuteness in the first Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer

Baby Groot kills with cuteness in the first Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer

The first trailer for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is an immediate crowd-pleaser. See, for instance, the reprise of “Hooked On A Feeling,” signaling that the sequel isn’t going to skimp on the classic rock. There’s also some savvy, if deadpan, romantic advice from the irony-lacking Drax (Dave Bautista), and, if you watch all the way to the end, a brief appearance from tiny baby...

Ben Affleck returns to form in the Live By Night trailer

After Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, it’s refreshing to see Ben Affleck returning to some lighter fare. In Live By Night, he plays Joe Coughlin, a brutal bootlegger turned notorious gangster in Prohibition-era America despite the influence of his Boston police captain father (Brendan Gleeson). This trailer is essentially two minutes of gunfire, explosions, old timey cars, and...

The trailer for Nina hints at the tragic yet compelling story of Nina Simone, the “High Priestess of Soul.” The legendary jazz singer and civil rights activist lived a difficult life, filled with depression and addiction.
