Bryan Cranston to Get Mad as Hell, Not Take It Anymore for Stage Revival of ‘Network’

Public opinion has swayed back and forth on Network in the decades since its release in 1976. To its many fans, the film’s cynical take on the feedback loop between the media and the outraged public has remained freakishly prescient, all but predicting the rise of the frothy-mouthed ravings that now cover the internet. To others, Paddy Chayefsky’s script went too broad, denouncing vague evils while indulging in fits of self-righteousness that have presently trickled down to the lesser works of Aaron Sorkin. As with pretty much any movie, it comes down to a matter of taste, but there’s no denying that Sidney Lumet‘s film retains a troubling relevance in today’s cultural and political climate. We are indeed mad as hell, and so long as the option exists, we’d prefer to not take it anymore.

Live From New York, It’s More Sexism at SNL! ‘Long Takes’ Ep. 6

Last week, SNL writer Kate Rich shared a tasteless joke on social media; within hours, the writer was suspended indefinitely (fired). What makes this case different from prior controversies involving the show’s writers and performers? Rich is a woman, and on SNL (as in many real life circumstances), women are not afforded the opportunity to screw up

Nicolas Cage Crashes All-Cage Film Fest to Read ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ in Classic Cage Move

For the past few Januarys, the good folks at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin have thrown a celebration of cinema’s greatest living actor called C4GED, in which they screen a surprise selection of five films starring Academy Award-winner Nicolas Cage back to back. Whether you fall into the so-bad-he’s-good camp or rightly recognize the Cage as a genuinely masterful and widely misunderstood thespian, it’s a roaring good time for all, with an open invitation extended to Cage so that he may come and receive happy birthday wishes. (The festival was specifically scheduled to fall in Cage’s birth month.) He’s never taken them up on the offer before, but this year was a little special.

‘Hidden Figures’ Upsets at SAG Awards, Ups Oscar Chances

Just when pundits had begun to reduce the Oscar fracas to a two-horse race between toe-tapping populist favorite La La Land and critically-adored downbeat character piece Moonlight, a possible spoiler has come out of nowhere. Last night, the 23rd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards gave Hollywood’s union of performers a chance to recognize some of their own whom had done outstanding work over the past year. The most coveted award of the ceremony is the prize for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Motion Picture, regarded by some as a bellweather for Oscar night, and it went to unexpected contender Hidden Figures.

Date Night Takes a Turn for the Steamy in This ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ Clip

For most people, the decision to make a sequel to 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey is probably the punchline to a bad joke. But have you actually stopped and looked at the box office numbers for Fifty Shades of Grey recently? We’re not talking about $100 million at the global box office; we’re not even talking about $200 million. We’re talking about $571 million worldwide, more than Mad Max: Fury Road and Creed combined and the eleventh highest-grossing movie of the year. With those kind of numbers, you pretty much have to make a sequel. I don’t blame them.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Split’ Defeats All New Arrivals, Including ‘Resident Evil’

Last week, Split had a huge opening and everyone noted that M. Night Shyamalan was unquestionably back. But now, in week two, it feels a little more official. The second weekend saw the film holding onto its spot at the top of the box office charts, but it also did so while dropping a percentage most movies would kill for. In other words, people like Split and are telling their friends to go see it.

Watch School Pride Turn Into Song in This ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Deleted Scene

It’s the little touches that help make a world feel authentic, which is why the Harry Potter universe has always stood above its peers. There’s a sense of history to the schools in this universe; you never feel like these characters are the first to experience any part of the world of wizards, only the latest in a chain of events and people that existed long before they arrived. And while this new deleted scene from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them may not exactly move the plot along, it certainly makes the universe feel more cozy for all who jump in.

Super Bowl 51 Gets a Coen Brothers ‘Easy Rider’ Commercial

While countless football fans  —  myself included  —  embark on a stomach and liver-related training regimen for next weekend, there is more to the Super Bowl than just the game on the field. The Super Bowl has always secretly been a big day for cinephiles as well, featuring big trailers for much-anticipated movies and clever commercials from some of the best filmmakers of our generation. Directors such as Doug Liman, Ridley Scott, and Judd Apatow have all directed Superbowl commercials, and now you can add two more big names to the mix: Joel and Ethan Coen.
