Matt Damon to play a different kind of dirty cop in James Mangold's The Force

Matt Damon to play a different kind of dirty cop in James Mangold's The Force

Don Winslow’s The Force is like if the final season of The Shield unfolded across 496 pages. Its protagonist, NYPD detective Denny Malone, is a Vic Mackey type who leads an “elite crime fighting squad” that’s as dirty as it is efficient, and the book chronicles both his spinning moral compass and the anxious lead-up to his catastrophic reckoning, which impacts everyone from crooks and...

Watch Haim, Diplo, and Anderson .Paak have the time of their lives on The Price Is Right

Watch Haim, Diplo, and Anderson .Paak have the time of their lives on The Price Is Right

At 65 years old, The Price Is Right is older than most people on this planet. And, with Drew Carey in it for the long haul, it will absolutely outlive us, its glittery wheel continuing to spin as the oceans boil outside. All this is to say that most of us don’t know what it’s like to live in a world without The Price Is Right, so to actually step into its hallowed halls would be exciting for...

Nicole Kidman comes undone in the teaser for HBO's The Undoing

Nicole Kidman comes undone in the teaser for HBO's The Undoing

David E. Kelley struck gold with his A-list HBO adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies, which thrived in part due to the indefatigable star power of Nicole Kidman. Now, Kelley—who’s also behind the Audience Network’s Mr. Mercedes —is reuniting with both Kidman and HBO for a new limited series, The Undoing.

Directed by The Night Manager ’s Susanne Bier, who won an Oscar for In a Better...

Ewan McGregor says Disney's Obi-Wan delay "not really as dramatic as it might seem"

Ewan McGregor says Disney's Obi-Wan delay "not really as dramatic as it might seem"

Ewan McGregor is doing damage control. After a week of social media whispers, it was confirmed on Thursday that Disney+’s series exploring Obi-Wan Kenobi’s descent into the desert was being put “indefinitely” on hold due to concerns over the scripts. Poor McGregor, who just wanted to attend a Birds Of Prey event in peace, kept his cool while being mobbed by reporters, repeatedly asserting...

Hell is the suburbs in this hilarious Vivarium trailer

Hell is the suburbs in this hilarious Vivarium trailer

Anybody who’s ever gotten lost in the winding, identical streets of a subdivision will relate to this trailer for Vivarium, a supernatural comedy about a couple (Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots) who become imprisoned in a labyrinth-like maze of green houses.

Lorcan Finnegan’s film looks thematically heavy-handed, sure—they’ll only be released if they raise a child they grow to hate, which,...

Disney+'s Obi-Wan show has been struck down to a measly 4 episodes, placed on indefinite hold

The show’s crew has also been sent home, while the series’ scripts are being re-worked to LucasFilm’s satisfaction, after possible...

Tracking the evolution of Joey and Shooby's impossibly pure bromance on The Circle

Tracking the evolution of Joey and Shooby's impossibly pure bromance on The Circle

On its surface, The Circle  sounds like some shallow, bingeable trash. Stick around until the second episode, however, and you’ll likely be hooked. The social media competition that forms the spine of the Netflix series—players communicate solely through a social media platform, trying to convey authenticity so as not to get blocked by the game’s “influencers”—isn’t all that gripping in a...

Bo Peep's Toy Story 4 transformation to be explored in new Disney+ short film

Bo Peep's Toy Story 4 transformation to be explored in new Disney+ short film

Bo Peep made a triumphant return in Toy Story 4, having refashioned herself, as our review put it , as a “take-no-shit nomad survivor, liberated by life on the road and her lack of attachment to any one child.” Well, if you’re wondering how she snapped off that lamp, found her voice, and landed in a thrift store, you’re in luck, as Disney+ is dropping a short film later this month that tells...

Martha Marcy May Marlene director Sean Durkin to grapple with wrestling's Von Erich curse

Will somebody please check on Baby Jay after that brawl between Kansas and K-State?

Will somebody please check on Baby Jay after that brawl between Kansas and K-State?

A massive brawl erupted between the University of Kansas and Kansas State University on Tuesday night, with both teams flooding the court to throw fists and bring back memories of that 2004 Pacers-Pistons debacle. In the aftermath, Kansas forward Silvio De Sousa was suspended indefinitely for his role, and it’s likely that more suspensions are on the way. There’s one question that remains...

Read this: Why is SNL's Michael Che so obsessed with his critics?

Last year, Saturday Night Live head writer and Weekend Update co-host Michael Che publicly harassed critic Steven Hyden, an A.V. Club alum, after Hyden penned a mildly critical article about Che’s SNL colleague, Colin Jost. Via his Instagram Stories, the comedian’s preferred mode of response, Che called Hyden a “regular mediocre ass white dude” who liked to suck off rescue dogs (or...

David Arquette tells us how he survived Scream and what drew him to the wrestling ring

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them about.

The actor: David Arquette was born into a family of actors—his father, Lewis, starred on The Waltons, and his siblings include Pulp Fiction star Rosanna, the late Alexis , and the Oscar-winning Patricia. His long, diverse...

Read this: Here's who's drawing all those bonkers wikiHow images

Nightmare clips like “Johny Johny Yes Papa” and “Sick Song” might hold the title for most unintentionally unnerving animated content, but the drawings that accompany wikiHow articles aren’t far behind. For years now, visitors to the weirdo how-to site have marveled over and meme’d the colorful images, many of which, with their casual insensitivity and strained approximations of relatable...

Jude Law is still nursing that burn Chris Rock dealt him at the 2005 Oscars

Jude Law is the subject of a compelling new interview Vulture interview in which the actor’s “blinding” beauty serves as a means of framing his artistic journey over the years. Speaking of Law’s recent turns in The Young Pope and The New Pope, for example, director Paolo Sorrentino says, “The beauty of Jude was very helpful for the character because the quintessence of beauty as pope was...

Conner O'Malley stars in a Hudson Yards video game in brain-melting new sketch

Conner O’Malley, perhaps the comedy world’s most chaotic entity , has returned with a new nightmare that sets the absurdities of gentrification and the American Dream against the architectural eyesore that is New York City’s Hudson Yards.

It begins with a frantic, PS1-aping “video game” brought to us by “Lululemon Interactive.” O’Malley, complete with a kettlebell and a “kamboucha” meter,...

Jason Segel’s been keeping a low profile over the past few years—after his excellent turn as David Foster Wallace in The End Of The Tour , he appeared in Netflix’s The Discovery and a few indies—but the actor and writer is returning in grand fashion with his new AMC show, Dispatches From Elsewhere.

Netflix just dropped a David Lynch short starring a talking monkey named Jack

David Lynch loves teasing us with monkeys. One of the more beguiling bits of Twin Peaks lore involved a monkey uttering the name “Judy,” and now the filmmaker is back with another talking primate, this one named Jack. In a wonderful surprise, the filmmaker dropped an incredible short on Netflix today called “What Did Jack Do?” in celebration of his 74th birthday. Lynch stars in the 17-minute...
