Shannen Doherty to join Riverdale for Luke Perry tribute

Shannen Doherty to join Riverdale for Luke Perry tribute

When Riverdale’s fourth season kicks off later this year on The CW, it’ll start with some kind of episode-long tribute to Luke Perry—who died from a major stroke back in March and had played the father of KJ Apa’s Archie on the show since the beginning. The Riverdale team made that announcement a while back , but at this afternoon’s San Diego Comic-Con panel, they also revealed that they’ll...

Marvel says Avengers: Endgame will beat Avatar's box office record this weekend

Marvel says Avengers: Endgame will beat Avatar's box office record this weekend

Last night, during Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con presentation, boss Kevin Feige declared that—as of this weekend—Avengers: Endgame will overtake the $2.7897 million box office record set by Avatar. It seemed a little premature, since it would’ve theoretically been possible for Marvel to sell literally zero Endgame tickets today, but it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen since

Sturgill Simpson announces new album… and companion anime

Sturgill Simpson announces new album… and companion anime

Musicians have been pairing their creative work with some kind of visual component for decades, typically just with traditional music videos, but sometimes a piece of music warrants a more complex companion piece, like Paul Thomas Anderson’s Thom Yorke collaboration on Netflix. Even rarer still are companion videos that are anime, like Daft Punk’s awesome Insterstella 5555, and now—16 years...

DC Universe details new seasons of Young Justice, Doom Patrol, and Titans

DC Universe details new seasons of Young Justice, Doom Patrol, and Titans

It would’ve been impossible for anyone to follow Marvel’s instant-classic San Diego Comic-Con showing last night, where the studio confirmed multiple new movies, announced that Natalie Portman is going to return as The Mighty Thor, and revealed that Mahershala freakin’ Ali is playing goddamn Blade , but that is just the unenviable position that DC Universe streaming service found itself in....

Harley Quinn is gonna make it after all in the bloody trailer for her DC Universe animated series

Harley Quinn is gonna make it after all in the bloody trailer for her DC Universe animated series

When DC Universe’s Harley Quinn cartoon was first unveiled back in October , the announcement clip was so obvious about the Deadpool-style self-referential shtick it was going for that Harley herself actually referenced the canceled Deadpool cartoon. Harley Quinn has sort of settled into a Deadpool-esque role in the comments, so it seemed like total fair game for DC Universe to say...

Meet The Eternals, Marvel's next obscure property bound for the big screen

During its San Diego Comic-Con panel, Marvel Studios finally confirmed that it’s making a movie based on Jack Kirby’s The Eternals , giving us one our first post-Endgame (and post-Far From Home) glimpses into what the MCU is going to look like now that Marvel has wrapped up the story it’s been telling ever since the stinger for The Avengers  introduced a purple bastard named Thanos to the...

Marvel finally confirms The Eternals, starring Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, and Kumail Nanjiani

This evening, during its San Diego Comic-Con panel, Marvel Studios finally confirmed one of its many poorly kept secrets, announcing that Chloé Zhao is going to direct a movie based on Jack Kirby’s The Eternals. The movie is set for November 2020, and Marvel also kindly confirmed all of the casting rumors we had already heard about over the past few months, with Game Of Thrones’ Richard...

Tina Fey and Ted Danson teaming up for the ultimate NBC sitcom

Tina Fey and Ted Danson teaming up for the ultimate NBC sitcom

It’s San Diego Comic-Con week, which means superhero news is the hottest thing in town (especially if that town is San Diego), but NBC is putting together a new dynamic duo of its own. As reported by Variety, the network has given a straight-to-series order to a new project from Tina Fey and Ted Danson, which is basically one Steve Carell short of being an NBC Justice League. Fey will write...

USA is bringing back Nash Bridges, so we asked our mom if she thought it was cool

USA is bringing back Nash Bridges, so we asked our mom if she thought it was cool

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the USA Network is working on a revival of Nash Bridges, the mid-’90s cop drama that starred Don Johnson as a San Francisco police officer who lived on a boat, with Cheech Marin as his wisecracking partner. To be honest, though, we don’t really remember the show all that well, but we do know that our mom was a big fan when it was on the air. So, rather...

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes go to Hollywood again in the Jay And Silent Bob Reboot trailer

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes go to Hollywood again in the Jay And Silent Bob Reboot trailer

We’ll say this about the trailer for Jay And Silent Bob Reboot: Kevin Smith doesn’t seem to have lost his touch for making this exact kind of movie. If you ignore the fact that everyone looks a little older, this could easily be mistaken for a movie that Smith would’ve made in the early 2000s heyday of the “View Askewniverse.” It has pot jokes, it has Jason Mewes getting naked at...

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. to end after season 7

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. to end after season 7

According to Deadline, Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be coming to an end after season seven airs next summer, with show’s official Twitter account sharing a little statement thanking fans and highlighting the fact that it’s “the longest-running Marvel TV series to-date.” That may seem like a dig at the unceremonious cancellation of Netflix’s Marvel shows, but it’s also probably true if...

Beyoncé releases dramatic, colorful video for her Lion King song "Spirit"

Beyoncé releases dramatic, colorful video for her Lion King song "Spirit"

Disney’s Lion King remake seems kind of soulless, with our own A.A. Dowd noting in his review that the elaborate, animal-stacking “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” sequence from the original has been replaced with a little romp through a stream, but at least we can still count on Beyoncé to bring the visual panache that Jon Favreau apparently forgot. Tonight, during a special...

Reminisce about Chris Evans' beard with this thrilling trailer for The Red Sea Diving Resort

Reminisce about Chris Evans' beard with this thrilling trailer for The Red Sea Diving Resort

Chris Evans’ Captain America suffered a traumatic loss in Avengers: Endgame when he—spoiler alert—decided to shave his fabulous Infinity War beard. The rest of the movie was fine, but it was hard not to miss his whiskers when he was smashing Thanos with Mjolnir. Luckily, Netflix is here to take us back to a world where Chris Evans had a beard with The Red Sea Diving Resort, a...

Apple would also like to start throwing money at exclusive podcasts

Good news, podcast fans: Things are going to get slightly more unpleasant for you! Yes, you already have to put up with a lot of ads for companies that mail uncooked food to your house and the basic indignity of having to say the words “it’s a podcast” when someone asks what song you’re listening to, but those are going to seem like minor inconveniences when every podcast platform has a bunch...

Here's what's coming to (and going from) Hulu in August

Hulu is dropping its biggest release of the summer this month , with the new season of Veronica Mars coming next week, so that doesn’t leave very much excitement for August, but August should really be used to that by now. It’s one of those transition months, landing between the barbecues of July and the new school year getting into full swing in September, making it just 31 days of hot...

According to Variety, Lakeith Stanfield (best known for Atlanta and Sorry To Bother You, though he’s been everywhere lately) is set to star in a movie adaptation of Notes From A Young Black Chef, the memoir written by former Top Chef contestant—and celebrated American-Nigerian chef—Kwame Onwuachi.
