Here's what's coming to Amazon Prime in June Here's what's coming to Amazon Prime in June

You’ll probably be too busy streaming Good Omens, which hits Amazon on May 31, to care much about what’s coming to the streamer in June, but we’d be remiss not to point you towards Chasing Happiness, the definitive chronicle of the newly reunited Jonas Brothers. The documentary is said to go “beyond the headlines and…

Stephen King's young adult fantasy epic The Eyes Of The Dragon is heading to Hulu Stephen King's young adult fantasy epic The Eyes Of The Dragon is heading to Hulu

Stephen King’s 1984 novel The Eyes Of The Dragon is being developed as a pilot at Hulu and, honestly, how the hell did it take this long? It’s not one of King’s most popular properties, having never been adapted for film or TV, but it is a fantasy epic geared toward young audiences, which, when paired with King’s…

Marilyn Manson joins HBO's The New Pope, which tracks Marilyn Manson joins HBO's The New Pope, which tracks

As the title might suggest, Paolo Sorrentino’s The Young Pope wasn’t your old man’s pope. Jude Law’s Pope Pius XIII was a bit of a bad boy, and, now that we know he returns, at least in some capacity, for spin-off The New Pope, we can assume that things will stay decidedly unholy. Helping in that regard, it appears,…

Oh Jesus, Nic Cage is starring in a "hardcore cop thriller" from Green Book writer Oh Jesus, Nic Cage is starring in a "hardcore cop thriller" from Green Book writer

Nick Vallelonga, the Oscar-winning screenwriter responsible for both racist tweets and racism-solving movies, has found a new collaborator in Nicolas Cage, who we’re guessing is only just getting his voice back after that viral karaoke rendition of “Purple Rain.” Per Indiewire, Cage will star in the 10 Double Zero, a…

Cool, Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran discovered vaporwave Cool, Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran discovered vaporwave

Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber have shared a new song, a pleasant, sensitive slice of pop called “I Don’t Care.” Of course, it’s easy to lose the low-key ditty in the storm of their new video, which has us asking who finally introduced these guys to Adult Swim, vaporwave, and Dan Deacon. Pop’s preeminent boyz toy with…

Tim Heidecker responds to Alabama abortion ban with charity single, "To The Men" Tim Heidecker responds to Alabama abortion ban with charity single, "To The Men"

This week, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a law that, in addition to banning most abortions in the state, makes performing one a felony punishable by up to 99 years. Though exceptions are made if the mother’s health is at risk, there are none for those who’ve been impregnated by rape or incest. The law will be delayed…

Amazon's The Tick canceled after two seasons of wacky, heartfelt adventure Amazon's The Tick canceled after two seasons of wacky, heartfelt adventure

As our own John Hugar recently declared, The Tick’s second season gave us “the show we were hoping The Tick could be all along.” Alas, it turns out the hilarious, heartfelt superhero parody will go out on that high note, as creator Ben Edlund has revealed that Amazon won’t be renewing the superhero series for a third…

The National takes a deep breath on the revelatory I Am Easy To Find The National takes a deep breath on the revelatory I Am Easy To Find

“I can’t slow down and I can’t stand it.” A tidy summation of I Am Easy To Find, that, but also an encapsulation of our hyper, oversaturated thoughts. Tweets. News. Content. Comments. Posts. Bots. Tweets. We are consumed, swept in the current. Matt Berninger gets it, perhaps better than most. His lyrics have always…

Chris Rock wants to torture us with another Saw sequel Chris Rock wants to torture us with another Saw sequel

Hot on the heels of comic luminaries Danny McBride and David Gordon Green reigniting the Halloween franchise comes a Saw reboot from, of all people, Chris Rock. Deadline reports that Rock conjured up the story for the revival—which, we have to assume, will find yet another means of bringing Tobin Bell back from the…

Ladies and gentlemen: Robert De Niro, bagel salesman Ladies and gentlemen: Robert De Niro, bagel salesman

Look, we’re not here to sniff at major celebrities doing commercials. Hell, we just lauded Tommy Lee Jones for his insane, decade-long commitment to shilling Japanese canned coffee. We’re also aware that Robert De Niro is perfectly content starring in low-dignity drek, and that that doesn’t mean he still doesn’t have…

AEW and WarnerMedia are finally giving WWE some much-needed competition AEW and WarnerMedia are finally giving WWE some much-needed competition

Just a few years ago, Cody Rhodes was floundering in the WWE as Stardust, a fantastical character that, despite Rhodes’ commitment, was consistently overlooked by the company’s creative team. Rhodes, the son of legendary grappler Dusty Rhodes, left the sports entertainment juggernaut in 2016, choosing to test his luck…

Bond 25 production delayed due to legendary klutz Daniel Craig Bond 25 production delayed due to legendary klutz Daniel Craig

Just a few weeks after Bond 25 began production, Daniel Craig has again betrayed his too-cool character by taking a tumble, making this boo-boo the latest in a franchise’s worth of busted knees, knocked-out teeth, and sliced-off fingertips. The supposed ankle injury has forced director Cary Fukunaga to suspend…
