‘Star Trek: Discovery': 5 of Your Biggest Questions Answered

22 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Major spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery’s” first two episodes. “Star Trek: Discovery” always had a lot to live up to.

There’s over 50 years of canonical history to pick and choose from, but how do you do it without outright copying a previous installment, especially when the J.J. Abrams films have been just that?

Film Review: ‘Gerald’s Game’

44 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Year of Stephen King continues apace with the arrival of “Gerald’s Game,” one of two Netflix-produced King adaptations (along with “1922”) unveiled last weekend at Austin’s genre-skewing Fantastic Fest. But here’s the rub: It’s entirely possible that this particular adaptation may be best appreciated — or, to paraphrase the late George Michael, viewed without prejudice — by people who have never read King’s 1992 bestseller of the same title.

Writer-director Mike Flanagan (“Ouija: Origin of Evil”) and co-writer Jeff Howard have proficiently streamlined and simplified a novel that, according to the production notes, even Flanagan once considered “unfilmable.” But the end result of their reimagining might very well produce more complaints than usual from disapproving King fans that, really, the book was a lot better.

To be fair, the movie tends to adhere quite effectively to the bare bones of King’s original plot. At a secluded lake house — the kind of place where no »

Jimmy Kimmel Thanks Sen. Susan Collins for ‘No’ on TrumpCare: ‘We Are All in Your Debt’

49 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jimmy Kimmel expressed his appreciation on Monday after Sen. Susan Collins said she does not plan to vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal that would dismantle the Affordable Care Act. “Thank you @SenatorCollins for putting people ahead of party,” Kimmel tweeted. “We are all in your debt.” Collins joins Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rand Paul, R-Ky., as Republican “no” votes against the bill that would repeal Obamacare. This prevents the party from hitting the needed 50 votes, unless one of the dissenters has a change of heart.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Says NFL Players Should ‘Protest Officers on the Field,’ Instead of American Flag

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Donald Trump’s weekend remarks about NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem by saying that they should protest officers on the field, instead of the American flag. “I think if the debate is really for them about police brutality, they should probably protest the officers on the field that are protecting them instead of the American flag,” Sanders said during a press briefing Monday. The answer came in response to a reporter questioning why the president would take white nationalists at their word that their protests were about “heritage, »

Steve Carell’s Range Gets a Showcase With ‘Battle of the Sexes,’ ‘Last Flag Flying’

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The film awards season is barely a few weeks old and it already has a candidate for Mvp: “Battle of the Sexes” and “Last Flag Flying” star Steve Carell.

When Carell first saddled up to prestige projects 11 years ago in Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris’ “Little Miss Sunshine,” you could swim in the number of stories noting the comedian’s shift into “serious” territory. It was pretty much what you’d expect for someone who had gone from sketch comedy and stealing scenes from Jim Carrey in “Bruce Almighty,” to dominating air waves with a broadcast sitcom and fronting a major Judd Apatow release, to headlining a high-profile Sundance selection.

A double-dip for indie cred followed soon after with Peter Hedges’ “Dan in Real Life,” but Carell maintained an unpredictable profile. There were humble dramedies (“Crazy Stupid Love,” “The Way Way Back”) mixed in with glossy studio comedies (“Get Smart,” “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone »

And then there’s Parsons, star of “The Big Bang Theory” and the upcoming “Young Sheldon.” His tweet from @Vault801Dweller said: “Jim Parsons looks like a ventriloquist dummy that came to life to become a sex offender.” Parsons blinked hard, said “Oh, God!”

Showtime’s Streaming Service May Have Been Hacked, Browsers Used to Mine for Cryptocurrency

Was Showtime the latest Hollywood juggernaut to get hacked? It looks like that’s the case, after Showtime.com and its instant-streaming site ShowtimeAnytime.com leveraged browsers to “mine” for Monero coins — a Bitcoin knockoff — over the week. (Mining is a method of verifying cryptocurrency transactions, where miners are given a small amount of cryptocurrency for helping to log all transactions on its digital ledger.)
