2017 Emmys Nominations: 5 Major Snubs and 5 Amazing Surprises

The nominations are in for the 2017 Emmy Awards and there’s just as much to celebrate as there is to be disappointed about. The 2016-2017 TV season was a huge year for the small screen, reaching the peak-iest of peak TV. It was full of more new series than you could keep track of, diverse casts, and many groundbreaking episodes in both the comedy and drama departments. A brief scan of the major categories may leave you feeling a little bummed over the nominations, with many of the usual suspecting making the cut yet again – can the Emmys even exist without Modern Family or Julia Louis-Dreyfus nods at this point? And critical and fan favorites like The Leftovers, Girls, and Legion were nowhere to be seen in the top categories.

You Can Watch the Opening Scene of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Right Now

Sony knows that it’s summertime and in the summer traffic can be bad. So bad, even, that you might be running late to the movie theater and miss the first few minutes of Spider-Man: Homecoming this weekend. I personally have a rule that if I miss more than the first few minutes of a movie, I skip the whole thing for another showing. So in case you’re worried about missing the beginning of Homecoming because some jerk decided to hit the emergency break on the subway, have no fear. Sony just released the first four minutes of their new Spidey outing.

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.

The ‘Love Actually’ Sequel Is Full of Reunions and Surprise Happy Endings

It’s been 14 years since a group of British actors starred in one the most widely debated Christmas movies of all time. Love Actually starred Andrew Lincoln before he was slaying zombies, Chiwetel Ejiofor before he was leading Best Picture-winning dramas, and that cute kid (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) kids before he was helping Bran Stark on Game of Thrones. This being the reboot/reunion era where no good (or hated) thing can be left alone, Love Actually is back with a mini sequel of sorts.

Brad Pitt’s Insufferable General Is Here to Win the War in New ‘War Machine’ Trailer

In these dark and terrifying political times, it’s deeply reassuring to see a U.S. General defying the orders of the White House in times of war. That was sarcasm, and luckily Netflix’s new movie – starring Brad Pitt as a fictionalized version of Army General Stanley McChrystal – uses satire to balance the nightmare of American politics with humor.

You’re Going To Have To Wait Another Whole Year for ‘Indiana Jones 5’

Today Disney dropped a whole slew of new release dates for the studio through 2021. It might seem like a joke that humanity will even exist to see that year arrive, but hey, we can dream, and in those dreams there’s a lot to be excited about, including Indiana Jones 5.

Gal Gadot Describes the ‘Powerful’ Moment Diana Becomes ‘Wonder Woman’

We’ve already seen those awesome slow-mo shots of Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince charging through the war-torn battlefield in the Wonder Woman trailers. Her red and gold armour shines against the backdrop of the smoky blues and browns of the European battleground. But the moment where Diana finally sheds her Amazonian garb to unveil her iconic superhero uniform is bound to be one of the most exciting for fans.

Natalie Portman Tapped To Play Female Bull Rider for ‘The Fits’ Director in ‘Bronco Belle’

Last week Natalie Portman starred in the new music video for James Blake’s “My Willing Heart.” The stunning black and white video, directed by Anna Rose Holmer, seemed like a random collaboration between Portman, The Fits director, and the British musician – you know, cool creatives just hanging out making art. But it turns out Portman and Holmer have another project underway.

Director Brett Ratner Says Rotten Tomatoes Is the ‘Destruction’ of the Movie Business, Criticism Is Dead

With the rise of digital platforms and social media, the state of writing that originated in print was bound to change. We don’t pick up a newspaper anymore to look for movie showtimes, and we certainly don’t wait till the Sunday edition drops on our doorstep to read the latest reviews. Most American audiences want immediate, digestible analyses of the art they consume, and nowadays that means checking a movie’s Rotten Tomatoes score before forking out cash. For director and producer Brett Ratner though, the review aggregation website is biggest evil in the entertainment industry.

‘Power Rangers’ Review: A Surprisingly Fun Superhero Reboot

The joy of the Power Rangers TV series was how campy it was. It was pure fun to watch teenagers jump around in nerdy spandex suits, fly giant robot machines, and fight ridiculous monsters (one was called Mr. Ticklesneezer, another was, I kid you not, Chunky Chicken). To make a modern Power Rangers movie you can either embody that wacky spirit, scrap it for a gritty reboot, or try to do both with middling results. Saban’s Power Rangers takes the latter route, updating the ‘90s series as an edgier, darker origin story with shards of silliness. The problem is, Power Rangers is never quite sure if it wants to distance itself from the source material or embrace it.
