  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREVIEW: The Circle; How To Be A Latin Lover; Sleight

  • STAR WARS IX and INDIANA JONES 5: Release dates were announced for these upcoming sequels this week. The question that remains is what Disney will do afterward. Are there any characters deserving of an origin story?

  • MADONNA BIOPIC: A script is being pushed around Hollywood right now that would detail the rise of Madonna. Madonna herself however, is NOT a fan.
