‘Creed 2’ Begins Production With Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone
It’s all happening: Creed 2 — officially titled Creed II because roman numerals are serious business — has begun production with Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson reprising their roles from Ryan Coogler’s hit sequel. Although Coogler, who recently wowed audiences and shook the MCU with Black Panther, won’t be returning to helm Creed II, he remains on board as executive producer — and had a hand in selecting the new director.

Watch Jeff Goldblum Read Your Thirsty Jeff Goldblum Tweets
The only thing — literally the only thing — missing from this Buzzfeed video of Jeff Goldblum reading the thirstiest tweets about Jeff Goldblum is my own thirsty tweets about Jeff Goldblum. Other than that, my fictional husband gives the sexiest performance of his lifetime in what is otherwise an immaculate video featuring some of the most hot and bothered and wildly inappropriate comments about h
‘Hereditary’ Review: The Bar For the Best Horror Film of 2018 Has Been Set
In recent years, one horror film emerges early on as the best horror film of the year. In 2017 it was Jordan Peele’s exceptionally smart social thriller Get Out; in 2016 it was Robert Eggers’ period stunner The Witch; in 2018 that honor goes to Ari Aster’s Hereditary. Starring Toni Collette as a woman struggling to cope with the increasingly disturbing implications of her mother’s death, Aster’s ferocious directorial debut plumbs the darkest depths of mental illness to reveal the true meaning of psychological terror.
Margot Robbie Officially in Talks for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
Margot Robbie’s name has been dropped in virtually every news story about Quentin Tarantino’s latest effort, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The director’s ninth film, which takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, features a fictional version of Sharon Tate — the former model who was nine months pregnant with husband Roman Polanski’s baby when she was murdered by Charles Manson’s followers. Robbie has long been Tarantino’s top pick to play Tate, and it looks like he’s getting his wish.
‘Terminator’ Reboot Casts ‘Halt and Catch Fire’s Mackenzie Davis
The fun thing about the Terminator franchise is how its wacky timeline justifies ignoring any bad sequels or reboots — like Genisys, a movie you probably forgot existed until this very moment. In the world of Terminator, every movie is a do-over; it’s sort of meta, when you think about it. So it’s not surprising that Arnold Schwarzenegger is at it again with another reboot, and he’s found his leading lady in Mackenzie Davis.
David Chase Is Making a ‘Sopranos’ Prequel Movie
Put the Sunday gravy on the stove because we’re returning to the world of The Sopranos. But unlike the current wave of revivals flooding our TVs, David Chase’s new project is heading to the big screen. The creator of one of the most beloved shows of all time has sold a screenplay for a film prequel titled The Many Saints of Newark, which will examine the New Jersey mafia in the 1960s — including a few familiar (but much younger) faces.
Man Arrested for Stealing Frances McDormand’s Oscar Last Night
After delivering the acceptance speech of the night (and inspiring everyone to frantically Google “inclusion rider”), Frances McDormand was tragically separated from her Best Actress Oscar when a man — because of course it was a man — had the nerve to steal it from her at the Governors Awards ball. Thankfully, the separation was brief, as McDormand and her little golden friend were reunited, at which point they enjoyed a post-Oscars trip to In-N-Out burger. Meanwhile, the suspect has been arrested for felony grand theft.
‘Fear’ Remake Will Explore the Stalker Thriller From a Woman’s POV
On a list of “movies least likely to get remade” you’d probably find Fear, the 1996 thriller starring Reese Witherspoon as a wholesome teen who gives up her virginity to bad boy Mark Wahlberg, who turns out to be a violent stalker — thus justifying her overprotective father’s concerns. But this is 2018, where anything and everything will be made or remade into a movie, and since women’s issues are So Hot Right Now, we’re getting a remake of Fear told from the perspective of the Witherspoon character.
Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film Gets an Official Title, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio to Star
After months of speculation and reports on casting possibilities (and likelihoods, to be honest), Quentin Tarantino’s next film — his ninth, and his first without the Weinstein Co. — has an official title and a pair of stars. Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio have signed on to headline the project, which is titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
