  1. 'The Handmaid's Tale' Trailer Shows a Dark, Disturbing Future

    Divided as politics have become, at least we haven't reached the chilling extremes shown in "The Handmaid's Tale" -- and hopefully never will.

    Hulu released the official trailer for the upcoming series on Thursday, and the world it introduces us to is, in a word, a nightmare. An adaptation of Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel of the same name, it takes place in a totalitarian society where most women the remaining fertile women are expected to serve and bear the children of high-ranking couples. Our protagonist, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is one of these so-called Handmaids.

    As we can see in the preview, it's a horrible situation. Offred goes from having control over her own life to being forced to serve this man and his wife, facing violence and cruelty along the way. The only thing that seems to be keeping her going is her desire to find her daughter, who was literally ripped out of her arms.

    Dire as it all is, the story is fascinating. Watch the trailer below and see for yourself.

    "The Handmaid's Tale" premieres April 26 on Hulu.

  2. 'Survivor' Fans React to 'Red Wedding' Tribal Council, Next Week Will 'Explode'

    In 34 seasons of "Survivor," there had never been anything like what happened during last night's insane supersized tribal council on "Survivor: Game Changers."

    Here's a live look at Episode 4, "The Tables Have Turned":

    Not only did two tribes go to tribal council together to vote out one player, it was the first time the pre-vote council talk turned into a deadly dinner party, with guests walking over to whisper to each other, huddle in groups, and return to share what they were told. Agatha Christie would've loved it, and "Game of Thrones" fans immediately compared the result to the Red Wedding, since it resulted in the unexpected departure of a fan favorite: Malcolm Freberg. Or, as the players wrote it last night, "Malcom" or "Malcolmb."

    Fans loved the electric drama, but most were unhappy with the result -- blaming JT for telling Culpepper the plan to write down Sierra, or everyone for not just writing "Sandra" already. #thequeenstaysqueen

    Watch the entire 11 minute scene play out:

    Malcolm left the vote saying he wanted to "vomit." Here's how many fans reacted:

    And there's more to come! "Survivor: Game Changers" is just getting started, and the promo for next week showed Debbie LOSING IT over whatever. Something Culpepper did. Or not. It's Debbie.

    Here's Jeff Probst's tease to Entertainment Weekly:

    Okay, sir. Hit us up with a tease on what to expect next week.
    Oh, I really don't want to spoil it in any way. But I want to deliver a tease so let me say this... Things explode in a way we haven't seen in a while and it's so good you'll want to watch it more than once.

    Well, we'll be watching and analyzing this week's episode more than once just to try to figure out what happened, so no shock that next week's will be a repeat offender, too.

    Malcolm is now doing his post-boot press, so check out this interview to get some sense of what happened.

  3. 'Bachelorette' Rachel's Group Date on 'Ellen' Turns Into Awkward Strip Tease

    Are these guys dating Rachel Lindsay or the "Ellen" audience? "The Bachelorette" is now filming, to premiere May 22 on ABC, and one of the stops on Rachel's "journey" was "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." She brought six guys there on a group date, and shared a few early details on her season.

    Fans can watch that episode today (Thursday, March 23) on "Ellen," and see an awkward or sexy (depending on your POV) clip in the video below.

    Rachel told Ellen she already kissed a guy by that point, and he sounds like a serious frontrunner: "He initiated. It was completely unexpected. I know this sounds cliche, but it totally swept me off my feet. It was good, it was good." Rachel didn't name the guy, but a dude named Brian from Miami decided to pipe in that "She's a great kisser." One of the other six guys there agreed, and Brian quipped, "He got my sloppy seconds."

    Anyone who says "sloppy seconds" needs to go.

    Rachel said she hadn't seen any of the guys shirtless yet, so Ellen fixed that by having the six take off their shirts and do lap dances for the screaming audience members, who shoved money down their pants:

    Check out the expression on the male audience member's face, at the bottom of this pic:

    That poor guy. Date him instead, Rachel.

    According to Reality Steve, this is for Episode 3, so keep that in mind. "The Bachelorette" Season 13 premieres Monday, May 22, at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

  4. Watch Ewan McGregor Feud With Himself in 'Fargo' Season 3 Trailer

    "Fargo" Season 3 will bring us the next installment in the FX anthology series, and it will center on an intense sibling rivalry.

    FX Networks dropped the official trailer on Wednesday, and it introduces the brothers, both of whom are played by Ewan McGregor. Interestingly, they're not twins; they're businessman Emmit Stussy and his parole officer younger brother, Ray.

    Thanks to the magic of Hollywood makeup, McGregor's two characters look very different. While Emmit is clean-cut and polished, Ray is mustached, balding, and the heavier of the siblings. The contrast serves as a great visual representation of how at odds they are.

    Beyond showing us McGregor pulling double-duty, the trailer delves into this season's drama: The brothers' issues lead to all kind of problems, with even murder and mobsters becoming involved. We're in for another dark but funny story.

    "Fargo" Season 3 also stars Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and David Thewlis. The show returns on April 19.

  5. 'The Walking Dead' Spoilers: Sasha Gets the Wrong Kind of Help in Episode 15

    "The Walking Dead" Season 7 is down to its final two episodes, and this next one will probably leave fans with a mix of frustration, disgust, and hope. Hope is good! But let's get to the frustration and disgust first.

    Episode 15, "Something They Need" airs Sunday, March 26. Here's AMC's brief synopsis:

    "A group of Alexandrians embarks on a journey; one member of the group must make a heartbreaking decision."

    The Spoiling Dead Fans's source shared its usual Q&A with the spoiler site, sharing details on what happens.

    WARNING: BIG SPOILERS AHEAD!

    Rick Grimes and company head to Oceanside to get weapons, but let's skip that. You can read the details at TSDF.

    MAGGIE & GREGORY: The promo showed Gregory approaching Maggie with a knife, and TSDF's source said Gregory does power down to Full Coward mode, but he doesn't stab Maggie and (sadly) she does not kill him either: "Maggie asks Gregory to keep watch for walkers while she's planting some vegetables, and the a**hole actually considers killing her right there. Shortly after, a walker attacks Gregory. It's obvious he has never killed a walker before. He screams for Maggie like a little girl and she has to save his ass." Question: Is Gregory already worse than Nicholas, in terms of cowards? Gleggie has the worst luck with guys like that.

    SASHA AT THE SANCTUARY: Fans may have mixed feelings about Sasha's time at the Sanctuary, 'cause it sounds like Negan actually comes to her aid against a rapist, and Eugene gives her pills to take her own life, as opposed to helping her kill Negan.

    Here's some of the source's Q&A on that:

    • What does Negan do when Sasha attacks the Sanctuary?
    "He locks her in the cell, but it's not quite as bad as Daryl. She still has her clothes, and she's given good food and bedding (oh, and no Easy Street either.) When Negan finally shows up, he basically offers to make her one of his top lieutenants (in time of course) because of her 'beachball lady nuts.'" Honestly, he does kinda sound like Abraham sometimes.

    • After Sasha is taken prisoner, does a Savior try to attack her in her cell? What happens?
    "Yes, the Savior David comes into her cell and tries to rape her, but Negan walks in on him. In return, David gets a knife through the neck." Negan is anti-rape, just like in the comic book, although you could certainly argue that coercing women to be his "wives" does not quite equal consent.

    • How does Eugene feel about Sasha being a prisoner?
    "He's a little distraught, but ultimately encourages her to join Negan. [...] Eugene tells Sasha the reason why he has joined Negan is because when he was in that Lucille line-up it was the most scared he's been in his entire life. Then it was 'rinse and repeat' when it happened to Glenn. He can't feel that way again, and by being at the Sanctuary that ensures he never will."

    • What request does Sasha make to Eugene? Why?
    "She begs Eugene to give her something 'to end it.' She knows full well Negan's going to use her to hurt her friends, and she can't live with that. Eugene obliges. She might have been asking for a weapon so she could actually take out Negan. When Eugene slips the suicide pills under the cell door, she seems surprised and upset." Seriously, Mullet Man?

    DWIGHT'S REDEMPTION? On the note of "hope," if you guessed that it was Dwight there at the end of last week's episode with Rosita, you are correct. It sounds like he is ready to pull a reverse Eugene and turn against Negan.

    As TSDF reported:

    • How does the episode end?
    "It ends with Rick and Co. returning from Oceanside to be greeted by Rosita at the gate. She says they have a visitor, and that's when she leads Rick to Dwight who says he can help. Daryl tries to attack Dwight, but Rosita stops him and says he really wants to help. Then Rick asks if that's true. Dwight says 'Yes,' and then Rick pulls his gun and orders Dwight to his knees. Fade to black."

    • Bonus:
    "Negan hears from 'a little birdie' that Rick is making plans and so he prepares to head to Alexandria. Gregory gets ready to go to the Sanctuary in this episode, but doesn't leave yet so Negan didn't hear it from him."

    After Episode 15, we just have the supersized season finale to look forward to. Everyone and their second cousin has been plugging the season ender, so it had better be damn good.

    "The Walking Dead" airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on AMC.

  6. Hugh Hefner Revisits His Past in Amazon's 'American Playboy' Trailer

    Amazon is ready to reveal what it calls "the story about the man behind the bunny."

    The online retail giant-slash-streamer has released the official trailer for "American Playboy," an upcoming docuseries about Hugh Hefner. As the trailer shows, the series explores the Playboy magazine founder's past from his own perspective. To do so, it offers a mix of dramatic reenactments with Matt Whelan as a younger Hefner, interviews, and footage from his own archive.

    Not surprisingly, the trailer has its risqué moments. It flaunts all the stereotypes you probably have about Hefner's lifestyle, from the massive mansion to the partying to the women, with plenty of provocative scenes. Still, the trailer promises that we "don't know the half of it" and teases more insight to come.

    This certainly doesn't look like a dry documentary; the series promises to be as attention-grabbing as its subject. See for yourself below.

    "American Playboy" begins streaming on Amazon Video on April 7.

  7. 'Beauty and the Beast' Stars Joined James Corden for Awesome Crosswalk Show

    There's no need to wait for "Beauty and the Beast" to hit theaters on Friday -- James Corden got three of the film's stars to join him in performing the tale as old as time in the middle of a busy Los Angeles intersection.

    Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, and Josh Gad all guest starred in the Crosswalk Theater Company musical, and their performance made its way onto Corden's "Late Late Show" Wednesday night. You might not think a musical rehearsed in a parking lot and performed in between traffic light changes would be very impressive, but Corden and the rest of the company proved otherwise. The setting might have been unorthodox, but even the horns honking in the background added to its charm.

    "To be invited by James to perform at a crosswalk outside of CBS? That's what we call a dream come true," Gad said.

    Watch the entire hilarious performance below.

    "Beauty and the Beast" opens March 17.

  8. 'Grey's Anatomy': Jackson Confronting His Father Brings Japril 'Healing' & 'Hope'

    Tonight, "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 gives fans #JapriltheSequel. Season 13, Episode 16, "Who Is He (And What Is He to You)?" airs Thursday, March 16 on ABC, as another standalone episode for co-parent exes Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) and April Kepner (Sarah Drew).

    Sarah Drew already told Moviefone it's a "pivotal" episode. The promos revealed that Jackson has found his "long-lost deadbeat dad," and although that casting is still a secret until the episode airs, the daddy drama will play out over the episode.

    "[April] realizes from the beginning that something's going on with [Jackson]. He's unusually cross with her — even in terms of their working relationship," Sarah Drew told TVLine. "So when she discovers that [the reason] is his father, it kind of opens up a world for her of, 'Now everything makes sense' — his attitude, his shortness, his shutting her out."

    It gives April more patience with Jackson, and prompts her to do what it takes to get him to confront his father. Drew said she loves the way the scene plays out, because April tells Jackson he needs to talk to his father because he can't do his job right now and she needs him to do his job. "That's really tough, and I don't think it's completely honest," Drew said. "I think [she does it] totally out of love, but she's not going to let on that it is, because... that's exactly what he needs to hear in that moment. She's so firm and so strong. She's really being a rock for him."

    Drew said "a great healing" comes out of the experience and it should give Japril fans "a lot of hope." So what more can you ask for than that?

    We've already seen photos and synopses for the next two episodes after this one, so here are the details on "Till I Hear It From You" and here's more on Ellen Pompeo's directorial debut in "Be Still, My Soul."

    "Grey's Anatomy" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.

  9. Watch Kate Mara Try to Save Her Combat Dog in Touching 'Megan Leavey' Trailer

    Prepare to feel your heartstrings not just tugged but yanked.

    Bleecker Street has unveiled the official trailer for the upcoming drama "Megan Leavey," and if it doesn't make you feel anything, you might just be dead inside. Based on a true story, the film follows Marine Megan Leavey (Kate Mara) and her combat dog, Rex. The two go through hell together in Iraq, and after she is sent home, she takes on a difficult fight to keep him from being euthanized.

    The trailer showcases their special relationship -- Megan is a woman who doesn't connect well with others, and Rex is known for being particularly aggressive. They do well together, though, and he actually saves her life. Beyond that, though, the marine credits her dog with teaching her what love is.

    Get the full emotional impact below, and don't say we didn't warn you if you get teary."Megan Leavey" opens June 9.

  10. 'The Bachelor': Jimmy Kimmel Missed the Most Awkward Nick & Vanessa Moment

    Nick Viall finally got a "yes" to one of his "Bachelor" proposals, but it hasn't been all champagne and roses in the weeks since.

    Not long after fans started questioning the happiness of Viall and his new fiancée, Vanessa Grimaldi, on Twitter, the two hit up "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" It was there that some true awkwardness ensued, all thanks to "The Newly Engaged Game." While the couple did pretty well with the challenge, there was one especially cringe-worthy moment that mostly flew under the radar.

    For each question that the couple answered correctly about one another, they earned a prize. Each was better than the last ... until the final one was unveiled. Kimmel showed off a set of "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" china. Evidently, it didn't occur to him that Viall, a repeat contender, had dated two of the women featured on the plates.

    That detail wasn't lost on Grimaldi, though.

    "There's two of his exes here," she said.

    Unfortunately, Kimmel didn't seem to hear her, and he kept the game going, asking them where they'd first made love. Their answers matched, so they won the plates. Somehow we doubt they'll be using them anytime soon.

    Watch it all go down below.

  11. 'Guardians 2' Director Reacts to Movie's Perfect Test Screening Score

    "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" director James Gunn does not mind that his movie's test screening results leaked -- would you really mind if it "leaked" that your child had a perfect test score? -- but he's also taking that result with a grain of salt.

    You probably heard that the "Guardians" sequel got a rare 100, the highest test screening score for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. (Even if it was a test screening just of Marvel "friends and family.") Gunn understands these test screenings pretty well. He knows how much the little details matter, and how a few words to the audience ahead of the screening can tilt their expectations in a direction that drastically raises or lowers their ultimate scores.

    Gunn talked to Collider to promote "The Belko Experiment," and he shared his thoughts on the "Guardians 2" test screening.

    "Those things are so random. I tweeted the next day that the second highest screening of any movie I've ever had was 'Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed,' which got like a 96 or something ... I also saw back in the day how little tiny things can adjust those scores in big ways."

    He gave the example of a screening for his 2006 film "Slither." When they were recruiting people for that screening, they asked things like "Do you like 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'" or "Dawn of the Dead," and other straight-ahead horror movies. That screening scored a 65. A week later, they screened the exact same movie, but this time they first asked people if they liked "Evil Dead II" or "Shaun of the Dead," movies that were more horror-comedies. That screening scored 12 points higher.

    "The only thing that changed was that people expected a horror-comedy vs. expecting a straight horror movie, and it made a tremendous difference.

    So there's a lot of permutations to those things. I think test screenings are an enormously helpful part of the process, but they're not helpful -- I don't even like the scoring part. ... What matters is, does the movie feel good in the room when it's being played? Where do I feel it's playing and where do I not feel it's playing? Are there things that people are confused about that they don't understand? Is there something about this movie that we don't know because we've been in our bubble for the past 15 months?

    And I think they're really helpful in that way, but in terms of the overall scoring stuff, it is what it is. At the same time, I'm not going to lie and say I'm not happy to get good scores. I am. I love it when people say they love the movie..."

    Sounds like he has a good perspective on it.

    FYI, Gunn recently confirmed that "Guardians 2" will have a post-credits scene, as if Marvel wouldn't continue that tradition.

    He also shared the latest TV spot: Never mind Baby Groot, Drax is gonna rob this thing blind.

    "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" opens May 5.

  12. 'Veep' Season 6 Trailer: Selina Meyer Has New Work to Do

    Selina Meyer is coming back, and there are landmines ahead -- literally.

    "Veep" returns in April, and Season 6 will bring us more of Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) as she adjusts to life as a former president. Thanks to the first trailer, released by HBO Monday, fans can rest assured that there is plenty humor to be found in life outside of the White House. Meyer and co. definitely haven't seen the end of their political skirmishes and general ridiculousness.

    Based on the preview, we can say that the next chapter in Meyer's life will bring her to interesting parts of the world. At one point, we see her traveling through an area full of actual landmines. Let's just say that in this case, she's not so excited to follow in Princess Di's footsteps. Yikes.

    Watch the trailer below for a look at the antics ahead.

    "Veep" Season 6 premieres April 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.

  13. 'SNL': Scarlett Johansson's Ivanka Trump Is 'Complicit' in Savage Perfume Ad

    Scarlett Johansson hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the fifth time on March 11, and she was showcased in a couple of Trump-related sketches. The best bit had Johansson play Ivanka Trump in an ad for the new fragrance, "Complicit," which came with its own cologne version for Ivanka's husband, Jared Kushner:

    Sorry, girl, you're ... Billy Zane.

    Brings back memories of that old "Red Flag" perfume ad. 'Memba that one? Johansson also played the owner of an adorable talking dog, who shocked everyone by turning out to be a Trump supporter: She also interviewed a zoo photographer mislabeled as a zoo pornographer: She joined other "actors" to film reaction shots for a bizarre Olive Garden ad: And here she is as a rival ninja opposite Leslie Jones: Sadly, she wasn't in the cold open, which did feature Alec Baldwin returning as Trump: But apparently she is "complicit" in what happened.

    Louis C.K. was announced to host "SNL" on April 8, with The Chainsmokers as musical guests.

  14. Melissa Leo Is 'The Most Hated Woman in America' in Netflix Trailer

    Netflix just released a trailer for the upcoming true crime biopic "The Most Hated Woman in America," and the story proves that truth really is stranger than fiction.

    Madalyn Murray O'Hair, founder of American Atheists, led the charge in a 1963 Supreme court ruling to end Bible-reading in U.S. public schools, leading Life magazine to declare her the Netflix film's title. Decades later, she and two family members were kidnapped and murdered by a convicted felon on parole who had been an employee of American Atheists.

    According to Netflix, "'The Most Hated Woman in America' captures the rise and fall of a complex character who was a controversial villain to some and an unlikely hero to others." The movie stars Oscar winner Melissa Leo as O'Hair, and co-stars Josh Lucas, Anna Camp, Sally Kirkland, Peter Fonda, Adam Scott, Vincent Kartheiser, and Juno Temple.

    Watch the trailer:"The Most Hated Woman in America" just had its world premiere March 14 at SXSW, and Netflix is giving it a super-quick turnaround, making it available for streaming on Friday, March 24.

  15. 'The Fate of the Furious': Latest Trailer Looks Impossible to Survive

    The Fast & Furious franchise isn't taking its foot off the gas.

    Universal Pictures dropped a new trailer for "The Fate of the Furious" on Thursday, and the action flick looks bigger, better, and crazier than ever. If you think you've seen absurd chase scenes already, buckle up. There are cars falling by the dozens, a long-awaited tank, and -- last but not least -- torpedoes.

    The high-octane preview highlights the upcoming movie's central conflict: Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) has inexplicably gone rogue and teamed up with a dangerous high-tech terrorist, Cipher (Charlize Theron). The two of them are ready to wreck havoc everywhere, from crowded cities to isolated icebergs. The crew is racing to stop Dom, but he and Cipher have scary weapons at their disposal. From what we've seen in the trailer, the gang looks seriously outmatched.

    Watch the full intense and action-packed trailer below."The Fate of the Furious" rolls into theaters on April 14.

  16. Netflix's 'Naked' Teaser Looks Like 'Groundhog Day' With Less Clothing

    Waking up nude in an elevator is probably one of the worst ways to start your day, but it happens over and over again in the new "Naked" teaser.

    Much like in the 1993 comedy "Groundhog Day," the protagonist of the upcoming Netflix film, Rob Anderson (Marlon Wayans), is forced to relive the same period of time repeatedly. Instead of an entire day, though, Rob has just one single hour he needs to get right. It's an important hour -- the one immediately before he gets married.

    Rob's situation seems to be some sort of punishment. Instead of writing his vows and practicing the steps to the first dance the night before, he went out drinking with his best man (Jonathan Todd Jackson). Who knew the decision would backfire so spectacularly?

    He needs to get the hour right to get his chance at happily ever after with his bride, Megan (Regina Hall). Of course, being naked poses interesting challenges. Rob has to deal with public humiliation, avoiding the police, and a tussle with a motorcycle gang.

    Watch Rob deal with his bizarre predicament below.

    "Naked" arrives on Netflix on Aug. 11.

  17. 'Marvel's Iron Fist' Is in a 'League of Its Own,' Says Star Jessica Henwick

    Premiere Of Disney And Marvel Studios' 'Doctor Strange' - ArrivalsNetflix's next Marvel series, "Iron Fist," hits the streamer this month, and it is preparing to make a big impact.

    Although the show's hero is Danny Rand (Finn Jones), he isn't the only intriguing character. A new featurette, released Wednesday, focuses on Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), his equally tough ally and love interest. Thanks to the video, we get to learn more about her backstory and the superhero series itself.

    Colleen, a martial arts instructor, might not have the golden fist of fury that Danny has, but she can certainly fight, too. In fact, the featurette shows her joining an honest-to-goodness fight club. We have no idea if she can talk about her fight club or not, but we do know that she goes into the ring with multiple challengers at a time and comes out basically unscathed.

    Together, Colleen and Danny make a formidable fighting team -- all while having what Henwick describes as "a very dramatic relationship." She promises the series "keeps you on your toes" and says it is in "a league of its own."

    Watch the full featurette below.

    "Marvel's Iron Fist" premieres March 17 on Netflix.

  18. HBO Is Airing 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Production Teases, Trailer Soon?

    Assign yourself a post on the HBO wall: We are on watch for a "Game of Thrones" Season 7 trailer.

    Eagle-eyed fans spotted a couple of brief "In Production Now" teases over the weekend, one showing the Oathkeeper sword Jaime Lannister gave Brienne, and another showing Lena Headey being made up behind-the-scenes to shoot more footage as Queen Cersei.

    Watchers on the Wall has been collecting fan-shot videos, one that aired March 3, and another last night after "Big Little Lies":

    Official HBO Game of Thrones Season 7 *In Production* tease featuring OATHKEEPER! 😁⚔️aired on hbo (credit: JCanepa) @WiCnet @WatchersOTWall pic.twitter.com/VlAu7IRKg0

    Wow... just caught another #GameofThrones S7 #InProduction teaser. Promise I'm not making this shit up. @WatchersOTWall pic.twitter.com/cw4S4KdjnB

    — Oz (@OzofThrones) March 6, 2017


    That's all fans have seen up to this point. The official Game of Thrones YouTube channel hasn't posted anything in a couple of months, not since the Season 1-6 marathon announcement.

    "Game of Thrones" Season 7 is reportedly done filming at this point -- they started in September and were said to finish in February -- so these "in production" teases were probably taped some time ago. (The seven episodes should be in post-production right now.) Usually we'd have an official trailer by now, but since this season started later and ended later, the whole schedule has been pushed back.

    We still don't even have an official premiere date ... but it's possible that will come at the same time as a trailer. It's all guesswork until a raven delivers the goods. At least we know to keep our eyes on HBO, and on Twitter feeds like the ones above, to look for more teases.

  19. 'Deadpool 2' Teaser: Here's the Full Text of the Book Report at the End

    Deadpool is no Superman, but Ryan Reynolds continues to be the king of meta marketing, and he's also handy for an insightful analysis of Ernest Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea."

    The first "Deadpool 2" teaser played before "Logan" in theaters, and a version was posted to Reynolds's own YouTube page.

    Here's what he tweeted:

    Anyone know the number to 911?

    No Good Deed https://t.co/HyfsFn48Vl

    The YouTube video synopsis has its own meta reference to the "Sisterhood" of Reynolds's wife, Blake Lively, as well as "Murder She Wrote": "Wade and the other girls from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants plan a trip to Cabot Cove."

    Watch the teaser:In theaters, many fans who didn't expect to see Deadpool were thrilled when Wade pulled his hood down, and continued to be thrilled through "St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)," "Zip it, Stan Lee!" the "Firefly" reference, the nod to "True Romance," and the super-fast fine print at the end.

    What was in the fine print? Wade Wilson's Cliffs Notes take on "The Old Man and the Sea," ending with a nod to Red Lobster.

    Here's the full text, transcribed by Comicbook.com but showcased in its originally format:

    The Old Man and the Sea is the story of a fight between an
    elderly, accomplished fisherman, Santiago, and a really big
    fish. Like... HUGE. The story opens with Santiago suffering
    eighty-four days without catching a fish because he's the
    unluckiest son-of-a-bitch on planet earth. Honestly, if you
    were in a boat for eighty-four days, it'd be hard to NOT catch
    a fish... even by accident. Santiago was so unlucky that his
    apprentice, Manolin, was forbidden by his Ma and Pa to fish
    with him. But as The Fresh Prince used to say, 'Parents Just
    Don't Understand'. So the boy visits Santiago's shack anyway.
    Ignoring the inherent risks of unsupervised playtime with an
    elderly man who talks to himself, Manolin helps out, moving
    Santiago's fishing gear, making food and talking about
    baseball. Especially Joe DiMaggio; who used to bump fuzzies
    with Marilyn Monroe. The next day, Santiago tells Manolin that
    he's going way out into the Gulf Stream. WAY OUT north of
    Cuba. Lady luck is returning! On the eighty-fifth day of his
    crappy luck, Santiago drops his lines, and by noon, gets a bite
    from what feels like a big ass fish. He's sure it's a winner. He
    fights and fights and fights but can't pull the monster in.
    Santiago's leaky old boat is pulled by the fish for two days and
    nights as he holds on for dear life. Even though he's bloody
    and beat, Santiago begins to appreciate this mighty
    adversary. He starts calling him "brother" or maybe even,
    "bro." It's sort of a love story if you really think about it. And
    like most romantic comedies, the reader pictures a delightful
    outfit changing montage, followed by the inevitable
    interspecies wedding. But on the third day, Santiago is
    freakin' EXHAUSTED, and decides he just wants the fish to do
    what he says and not always swim wherever it wants. So he
    stabs it. With a f*cking harpoon. It's a mess. Super gross.
    Blood everywhere. Because, like many men his age, Santiago
    has difficulty expressing his emotions and fears with words -
    instead giving in to base desires - and imposing his
    gigantically terrible positions on any given subject through
    unblinking violence. Typical. Anyway, he straps the marlin to
    the side of his skiff and hits the road home, ready to act like
    a total show off to everyone and probably gouge people on the
    price. But guess what? Pretty soon sharks begin to attack the
    bleeding marlin's carcass, because we all know, life is a
    tragic opera and just when you think you've finally found
    something good and true, sharks come along and rip it all to
    f*cking shreds while dry-humping your dignity with their
    crazy-weird shark dicks. Sure, Santiago tries killing a few of
    them, but drops his harpoon because his hands are just as old
    as he is. By nighttime, the sharks have pretty much eaten the
    entire marlin. Only a bleach-white skeleton remains, silently
    mocking him in the murky darkness. Santiago realizes he's
    still unlucky. REALLY unlucky. (Duh!) He calls the sharks
    "dream killers". Which isn't really all that fair. I mean, the
    sharks were just doing their job and the marlin... Jesus,
    don't even get me started on the marlin! It was just hanging out one
    day, minding its own business, maybe thinking about ways it
    could be a better provider for its family and WHAM! Harpoon
    in the brain. Who's the "dream killer" now, f*ckface? The
    hypocrisy is pretty much boundless at this point. Eventually
    Santiago makes it ashore. Leaving the bones of the marlin and
    the boat, he hobbles to his shack. He makes it home and
    crashes, like I said - he's super tired. The next morning a
    group of fishermen gather around Santiago's boat. One
    measures the skeleton and, holy sh*t-shingles! It's over 18
    feet! The head of the fish is given to Pedrico (strange that this
    is the first mention of him) and the other fishermen ask
    Manolin to send their glad tidings to the old man. Manolin
    brings Santiago newspapers and coffee when he wakes and
    they decide to fish together again. Many years later, there's
    a Red Lobster Restaurant in nearly every city in America,
    offering a casual dining experience and convenient parking.

    Phew! A-plus, Mr. Wilson. Well done for pointing out the hypocrisy and standing up for the sharks and the innocent marlin who probably just wanted to provide for its family.

    "Deadpool 2" is expected in theaters in 2018. Or, as they put it in the trailer, "Coming Not Soon Enough."

  20. 'LOTR' Star Sean Astin Has Sam's Optimism About Trump: 'He's Been Growing'

    Sean Astin knows a powerful speech by his "Lord of the Rings" character, Samwise Gamgee, has been a rallying cry for the anti-President Trump crowd, but he's also channeling Sam's optimism about the future. We're on a long journey, just taking it day by day, so keep your spirits up and don't lose hope.

    TMZ caught up with Astin at the airport, and they talked about "The Lord of the Rings" as a political metaphor. As Astin put it, "I think 'Lord of the Rings' is about persevering in the face of overwhelming odds. [...] It's funny, right when Trump got elected, there's a speech that Samwise delivers in 'The Two Towers' where he talks about there's some good in this world that worth fighting for."

    TMZ said that's his quote, right?

    Astin responded, "Yeah but that was in November. Now we're in March and things are happening. So I think it was more like Frodo and Sam walking across Mordor. [...] That's what we're doing now, we're walking across Mordor."

    He said he was feeling better about the future than he had in a long time, referencing how Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any future investigations related to Trump's presidential campaign. "And Trump has shown signs of willing to behave in a way that isn't ... you know, he's been growing," Astin continued. "I've noted his growth. It's a low bar, but I've noted his growth."

    Here's Sam's speech:[via TMZ]

  21. The 'Grace and Frankie' Season 3 Trailer Has Injuries and Fights and Vibrators (Oh My!)

    Netflix's "Grace and Frankie" is back with a buzz-worthy Season 3 trailer.

    The preview, released Thursday, shows TV's best retiree odd couple, Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin), going through with their plan to start selling vibrators. From what we can see, though, it's not going to be easy. The first scene shows them failing to secure a 10-year loan.

    Beyond their business woes, it looks like their friendship will face some trouble as well. The two women have come a long way since the show began, but we see them regress. Frankie tells Grace that she's sick of her, and Grace later pulverizes a piece of meat when asked where Frankie is. Uh-oh!

    On top of all that, the show will continue to make light of common aging woes. (Never mind that all of the show's senior citizen stars have aged absurdly well.) The trailer teases back injuries, forgetfulness, and the dreaded R-word -- retirement. It looks like another fun ride.

    Watch the hilarious preview below.

    "Grace and Frankie" Season 3 premieres March 24 on Netflix.

  22. Netflix's 'Sand Castle' Trailer Sends Nicholas Hoult & Henry Cavill to Iraq War 

    You can tell Nicholas Hoult's Private Matt Ocre is not one of those gung ho soldiers just seconds into the "Sand Castle" trailer. He smashes his own hand in a door, over and over, with the hope of having an injury bad enough to keep him from combat in Iraq. It does not work.

    The new Netflix original movie, co-starring Henry Cavill, Glen Powell, and Logan Marshall-Green, arrives on Netflix April 21.

    Here's the synopsis:

    "Set in Iraq in 2003, 'Sand Castle' follows a group of American soldiers in the early days of the second Gulf War. Bearing witness to the heat and the horror is the inexperienced Private Matt Ocre (Nicholas Hoult), who, together with several fellow soldiers, is ordered to the outskirts of Baqubah to repair a water pumping station damaged by U.S. bombs. But, as Ocre discovers, in an atmosphere where resentment and anger fester, trying to win the hearts and minds of the locals is a task fraught with danger. It's here, in the streets, squares and schools that he discovers the true cost of war."

  23. Saucy Jack Is Back in New 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Trailer  

    Carina Smyth: "I'm not looking for trouble."
    Jack Sparrow: "What a horrible way to live."

    "Ellen" just debuted Disney's new trailer for "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales," and it's looking for all the right kind of trouble. The fifth movie in the franchise brings back Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbossa, and Orlando Bloom as Will Turner. It also adds a new villain in Javier Bardem's Captain Armando Salazar, and the new trailer does a good job of setting up the Salazar vs. Sparrow dynamic, adding backstory to show how young Jack screwed over the captain, setting up still another rivalry for our (anti)hero.

    The trailer also shows more of young newbies Kaya Scodelario as Carina Smyth and Brenton Thwaites as Henry, and both characters play off Jack with the kind of saucy, naughty humor fans fell in love with back in 2003. Plus, the monkey is back. And there's a ghost shark. What else do you want?

    Here's the trailer:And here's the official Disney synopsis:

    "Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea...including him. Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas."

    Here's the poster:

    "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" opens Memorial Day weekend, May 26th, 2017.

  24. Octavia Spencer Goes to the Wrong Studio in 'Saturday Night Live' Promo

    At the 2017 Oscars, Octavia Spencer told Ryan Seacrest she was leaving the next morning to prepare for her first time hosting "Saturday Night Live." "I'm terrified," she admitted.

    The "Hidden Figures" Oscar nominee is hosting March 4, with musical guest Father John Misty. SNL shared a promo of Spencer arriving in Studio 8H for her big debut ... but first she went to the wrong place and caught "Late Night" host Seth Meyers eating lunch at his desk. (Guess he just spends his whole day there.)

    Octavia Spencer: "I am ready, SNL! Let's do this!"

    Seth Meyers: "Oh, um, wrong studio. SNL is across the hall."

    Seth mentioned that he was head writer of SNL for a bunch of years, so if she wanted to ask him any questions... but she cut him off with a "Cool, dude! Cool for you."

    Here's the NBC promo:She'll be great! SNL has been a hotbed of political discussion in the past few weeks, but we have to expect at least one Oscars spoof after everything that happened with #EnvelopeGate.
