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.

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.

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...

Zoë Kravitz scours the wreckage of her love life in this trailer for Hulu's High Fidelity series

It’s okay to be skeptical of

Hulu’s riff on High Fidelity , the 1995 Nick Hornby novel that became the beloved 2000 film starring John Cusack. The first full trailer for the series apes some of the original film’s best scenes, and reveals that Zoë Kravitz’s lead is still named Rob.
