‘Kidnap’ Is the Dumbest Movie of the Summer, But Oh God It’s Fun

There are bad movies. Then there are bad movies where Halle Berry screams and recites monologues inside a minivan for an hour and a half. In Kidnap, Berry plays Karla, a working class single mother whose son gets, you guessed it, kidnapped – but the title of this movie is in the present tense, because Karla sure as hell won’t let this kidnap(ping) become a thing of the past. She’s saving her kid, and she’s saving him right now.

All the ‘Game of Thrones’ Easter Eggs and References You Missed in ‘The Queen’s Justice’

The third episode of Game of Thrones’ penultimate season served up a piping hot plate of some queenly justice. In “The Queen’s Justice“ we finally saw – SPOILER alert – Jon and Daenerys meet in the flesh, two Stark children reunited, Cersei exercised zero compassion for mama Sand Snake, and Lady Olenna went out with a firework finale of a bang. It was quite a week for major GoT moments, but with everything going on, did you catch all the references?

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Scripts Are Complete, but How Long Are the Episodes?

It’s hard to believe we’re nearly halfway through the penultimate season of Game of Thrones. We’ve got four episodes left of Season 7 before we plunge into the finale six of Season 8. We may be getting less episodes – or, as former grammar Nazi Stannis would say, fewer – compared to previous seasons, but on the upside, they’ll also be extra long.

Ben Stiller’s Sad Dad Has a Mid-Life Crisis in First Trailer for ‘Brad’s Status’

Ben Stiller’s latest role is a middle-aged guy reflecting on the missed opportunities and regrets of his youth, mourning the life he could’ve had. No, this isn’t When We’re Young, the Noah Baumbach film where Stiller tapped into nostalgia and new-age hipster-dom with ayahuasca trips alongside Adam Driver. It’s Brad’s Status, the latest from School of Rock, The Good Girl, and Orange Country writer (not to mention one of the scribes behind The Emoji Movie) Mike White.

Ron Howard Shares the First Photo of Chewbacca on ‘Han Solo’ Set

Ron Howard finally learned how to use his phone camera! The director has been sharing a bunch of obscure (and relatively boring) photos from the set of the Han Solo movie since taking over as director. He took a photo of a case of water bottles (thrilling!), a street sign outside Pinewood Studios, and a coffee mug, convincing me that they all must have been accidents. He was clearly trying to take a selfie with Alden Ehrenreich’s titular smuggler but couldn’t figure out how to reverse the camera. Finally, today, we got a revealing photo.

Ron Howard Shares Set Photo From His First Day on ‘Han Solo’

Ron Howard is a very capable director who knows how to position a camera and capture a powerful image. But I also have a sneaking suspicion that maybe Ron Howard isn’t great at social media or taking casual phone pics. He seems like the type of dad who accidentally snaps a selfie when attempting to take a shot of a sunset, or butt-Facetimes his family. Just look at his latest Twitter photo.

Emma Stone and Steve Carell Square Off in First Trailer for Tennis Drama ‘Battle of the Sexes’

“Tennis drama” sounds like one big snooze of a subgenre, but before you close this tab, hear me out – Battle of the Sexes ain’t just any tennis drama. The Emma Stone-Steve Carell film recounts the famous titular match where Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs on national television in 1973. And it was far more entertaining than your average round of tennis.

Is Reese Witherspoon Hooking Up with a Teenager in the ‘Home Again’ Trailer? (No, But Sure Looks Like It)

At the end of Sweet Home Alabama, Reese Witherspoon finally marries her hometown sweetheart and they live happily ever after. Now let’s pretend a few years down the road that marriage didn’t work out, and she realized Josh Lucas was holding her back from being the woman she never got to be. Now in her 40s, Reese just wants to live again! She gets separated (exchanging Lucas for Michael Sheen), returns home (subbing in Los Angeles for Alabama) and decides to let loose and invite three random dudes to move into her home. That’s Home Again, in a nutshell, which I am convinced is a secret Sweet Home Alabama sequel.

A ‘Harry Potter’ Prequel Handwritten By J.K. Rowling Has Been Stolen

J.K. Rowling is a pretty gracious woman. Beyond giving us the Wizarding World, regularly answering Harry Potter fan questions on Twitter, and annually apologizing for character deaths, she also gives back a little. In 2008, the author wrote an idea for a Potter prequel and auctioned it off to raise funds for a literacy charity. Now someone has stolen that rare prequel, because the world is full of ungrateful muggles.

‘Love Actually’ Is (Still) All Around in the New Red Nose Day Reunion Trailer

I could pretend to be one of those Love Actually haters (read: everyone on the internet) and say a bunch of snooty things about the beloved rom-com and its upcoming reunion sequel. I could say, “Oh gosh, here we go again with the most overrated holiday romance of the century,” or drop a couple hot takes about how it’s actually a terrible or misogynistic movie. But the truth is, (oh god, I’m about to publicly out myself here…) I love Love Actually, and I don’t care what you think. So I found the new trailer for the reunion short film in honor of Red Nose Day, kind of stupidly cute? Sue me.
