Wed, 07/27/2016 - 07:00

Paul Feig has been weathering the storm of Ghostbusters fandom ire this year, and now he's about to take on a different sort of survival story involving women.

Tue, 07/26/2016 - 05:46

They're somewhat miserable and disheveled and most likely drunk or stoned, but they're so lovable and memorable that their long-awaited sequels are finally on the way.  That can be used to describe both Trainspotting 2 and Bad Santa 2 -- two follow-ups over a decade in the making (and in the case of Trainspotting 2, over two decades). Trailers for both sequels were released this week, reminding us that their predecessors may be older (and maybe wiser), but their look, feel...
