The sweet and good-natured character Dean Simms has become of the breakouts on “Claws,” which is no mean feat for a show filled with flamboyant mafia bosses, drug dealers, ex-cons, and ex-prostitutes. But even if he has a stronger moral compass than that others, Dean is anything but boring.
Dean, portrayed by Harold Perrineau, has had perhaps the biggest character evolution on the TNT series so far. First introduced as a budding artist with autism who is completely dependent on his sister Desna (Niecy Nash), he’s become far more than a mere appendage to her life. Dean has created a much richer and more independent existence for himself that involves romancing his girlfriend Virginia (Karrueche Tran), moving in with her, and preparing to become an exotic dancer. But more importantly, he’s also become a man who can finally watch out for his sister
Overall, the results are fine. This weekend’s box office is about equal to last year, which saw two films gross more than anything this weekend. Even so, year-to-date grosses remain nearly nine percent above 2017.
Adjusted, the $44 million gross is the smallest in the “Hotel Transylvania” series; this the first released in summer. The first two debuted at the end of September, a position that signaled they were less competitive.
The best animated opening weekend last summer was “Despicable Me 3” at $72 million; at $53 million, “Cars 3” felt a bit disappointing. “Transylvania” is good enough, and set to make money: It cost $80 million, and opened to $54 million overseas.
“Every day, even before this, people would drive by and see the ‘Open’ sign and say, ‘Oh my gosh. How are you still here? Why are you still here?'” Sandi Harding, the store’s general manager, tells the Washington Post. People have been showing up to the store in recent days, but not to rent videos — to take pictures.
“These are the last two Blockbuster stores in Alaska that survived and it is

Kubrick co-wrote the adaptation of Stefan Zweig’s novella of the same name with Calder Willingham in 1956, shortly before making “Paths of Glory.” The script has been found by Nathan Abrams, a film professor at Bangor University, according to the Guardian. “I couldn’t believe it,” the Kubrick scholar said of the discovery. “It’s so exciting. It was believed to have been lost.”
“Kubrick aficionados know he wanted to do it, [but] no one ever thought it was completed. We now have a copy and this proves that he had done a full screenplay,” Abrams added. He describes the project as “the inverse of ‘Lolita,
As is tradition, Willis didn’t say much else during the taping; that task was left to the likes of Edward Norton, Lil Rel Howery, host Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and even Willis’ ex-wife Demi Moore. It sounds as though Moore’s surprise appearance got the best reaction, which is unsurprising given lines like this: “I was married to Bruce for the first three ‘Die Hard’ movies, which makes sense because the last two sucked.

It begins in a diner before cutting to an apartment and then another eatery, with everyone’s meals (especially pizza) being interrupted by a strange energy that can only mean the arrival of the newest Doctor is imminent. Then she does, because how else would this end?
Whittaker made her official debut as the 13th Doctor during “Twice Upon a Time,” last year’s Christmas special; she’s best known for her appearances in “Broadchurch,” “Attack the Block,” and the “Black Mirror” episode “The Entire History of You.” Her predecessor Peter Capaldi’s tenure began
Not that documentaries have peaked. “Three Identical Strangers” (Neon) is also breaking through to a wider public.
Yes, there were several major successes, but this summer lineup offered narrow appeal, leaving out more sophisticated fare. It’s too soon to celebrate. But after a worrisome first half of the year, summer brings upbeat news.

“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
That’s good news for fans who want to see Wolverine in a Marvel movie, but not everyone is celebrating.
“They’ll have so much share, that it will seem to give them leverage up and down the supply chain,” Barton Crockett of Fbr Capital Markets tells CNN. “It’s what happens in a world where one studio, mainly Disney, is having outsized success in doubling down on its investments, and most of the other studios seem to be on their heels a bit when it comes to making movies.
Coming in at #1, surprising no one, is ‘Hotel Transylvania 3,’ with a weekend total of $44.1 million.

The character of Great Aunt Josephine Barry in the “Anne of Green Gables” books has always been a fan favorite because she seemed to truly understand and encourage the unique aspects of the orphan that transformed the lives of those in Avonlea. In Netflix’s adaptation “Anne With an E,” it’s revealed that her perception and empathy comes from her own personal struggles: Aunt Josephine (Deborah Grover) is gay.
Series creator Moira Walley-Beckett spoke to IndieWire about adding this extra dimension to the beloved literary character, as well as more realistic touches for Canada in the Edwardian period, and what she’s eyeing for Anne Shirley Cuthbert (Amybeth McNulty) in Season 3.
“Upon reading [the novel] again as an adult, I was wondering about Aunt Jo,” said Walley-Beckett. “In the book, she’s a spinster and she’s
By shooting so high, the unflinching performer behind Da Ali G and Borat hits a few big marks, and misses some, as well. Members of Congress should be removed from office because of the things they say and do with Cohen’s characters, but the vaudevillian master of disguise also puts his elaborate
The series picks up with in-demand harlot Charlotte Wells (Jessica Brown Findlay) having abandoned her mother Margaret’s (Samantha Morton) brothel on Greek Street for Golden Square, the high-end house of rival bawd Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville). This seeming betrayal, however, is part of her revenge scheme to take down Quigley, who is responsible for having forced her mother into whoring as a child, which in turn forced her subsequent children into the life.
One of the problematic narrative issues with “Harlots” is its focus on women tearing down other women,
AMC released a brief statement announcing the change:
“Yvette Nicole Brown will step in as an interim guest host of ‘The Walking Dead Season 9 Preview Special’ on August 5 and ‘Talking Dead’ when it returns following the premiere of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ on August 12, as we work to complete our assessment related to Chris Hardwick.”
In a Medium essay written last month, Dykstra detailed an abusive, years-long relationship with an unnamed man whom readers quickly deduced was Hardwick. He has since lost several other positions, with AMC taking “Talking With
Thom Yorke of Radiohead is scoring this new take on the film, which stars Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, and Jessica Harper. Though his bandmate Jonny Greenwood has received widespread acclaim for his musical stylings on films like “There Will Be Blood” and “Phantom Thread,” Yorke hasn’t worked on a high-profile film project before.
Here are the dates for Goblin’s tour, which begins just before Halloween
A new horror-themed poster for the show doesn’t exactly change that, but it does serve to remind that the recently departed cast member’s presence continues to loom large (see below). Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Frank (Danny Devito), and Dee (Olson) are dressed as the high-school victims in a slasher movie as they flee from an axe-wielding killer standing in front of a cabin; his face is obscured, but the figure can only be the fifth member of the Gang.
