Spike Lee Directed Five Short Films for Uber Because He Just Loves Brooklyn That Damn Much — Watch
There are many ways to fight the power, and one of them is directing short films for Uber. Spike Lee has teamed up with the ride-sharing company for “Uber Presents Da Republic of Brooklyn,” a series of five shorts highlighting the men and women behind the wheel in the filmmaker’s favorite borough of New York — and lest you fear that this is another example of Uber not doing right by its employees, the company has specified that all drivers were compensated for their participation in the project.

“I was attracted to this project because I know a lot of people who drive on the Uber platform and it gives them the flexibility they need to pursue their dreams,” Lee says in a statement. “That’s how we do it in Brooklyn – that’s the Brooklyn hustle.” 2018 has proven to be Lee’s best year in quite some time, as

We can already tell that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be filled with magical revelations when it hits theaters on November 16. Not only are we meeting a younger Dumbledore (played by Jude Law), but we'll also get a glimpse of Newt Scamander's time at Hogwarts. While Eddie Redmayne won us over with his role as the Hufflepuff wizard in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a brand new actor will be stepping into the role during flashbacks in the sequel.

On Thursday, Entertainment Weekly revealed that up and coming actor Joshua Shea will be taking on the role when they provided the first look of young Newt in the film. While he certainly bares a striking resemblance to Redmayne, little is known about the British star. According to an interview with Song Academy in April, he is 15 and hails from Jersey, which is near the coast of Normandy,

Meghan Markle's Dad Believes She's
Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, is worried about the influence of royal life on his daughter, and he wants to get back in touch. While the 73-year-old former lighting director chose not to attend his daughter's wedding after a health scare and photo controversy, he recently told The Sun he believes Meghan's "terrified" by her new royal role.

"I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face, and I see it in her smile," he said. "I've seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don't like the one I'm seeing now."

Thomas elaborated, saying he notices Meghan wearing a "pained smile" now, which he thinks could be because "she's under too much pressure."

He also feels "shunned" by the royal family and his daughter, after he was caught staging photos with the paparazzi. Thomas said Prince Harry and Meghan forgave him for the stunt before the wedding,

Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz Jockey For Power in the Trailer For The Favourite
The Lobster filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos's newest project brings us a tale of royal intrigue, betrayal, and a whole lot of madness. Set in the early 18th century, The Favourite takes us behind the scenes of Queen Anne's reign.

The queen is frail and more concerned with duck racing than governing her country during its war with the French. She's cared for by her close friend, Lady Sarah, who also handles her political affairs. A new servant, Abigail, arrives just as England's war with the French thickens, and she begins to fill in as the queen's trusted companion while Sarah is busy with politics. Abigail soon replaces Sarah as Queen Anne's favorite and thus begins an insane battle for power.

The historical drama has a heavy-hitting cast, including Olivia Colman as Queen Anne, Rachel Weisz as Lady Sarah, and Emma Stone as Abigail. The trailer alone has us intrigued

Riverdale's Casey Cott Will Melt Your Heart Into a Puddle With This Gorgeous Wicked Cover
Step aside, Archie, there's a new Riverdale heartthrob in town. Casey Cott, aka Kevin Keller, recently teamed up with Broadway star Jackie Burns for the latest installment of Wicked's "Out of Oz" series, and it's pretty magical, to say the least. The two sang a mashup of "Dancing Through Life" and "The Wizard and I" from the musical, and we can't help but melt over Cott's gorgeous vocals.

His insane singing skills shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, though. Not only did he attend Carnegie Mellon School of Drama, but musical theater is in his blood. His brother, Corey, is best known for playing Jack Kelly in Newsies and originating the role of Donny Novitski in Bandstand. Seriously, can we get more of Kevin singing during Riverdale season three? Or better yet, can Cott star in the upcoming Wicked movie adaptation? Please and thank you.
