Zach Galifianakis is a tender-hearted Bigfoot in first trailer for Laika's Missing Link

Bigfoot was all the rage a few years back, with Exists and Willow Creek both mining horror from the monster’s considerable mythos. Now, Laika, the stop-motion studio behind innovative flicks like Coraline and Kubo And The Two Strings, is bringing a comic edge to Sasquatch. Missing Link comes from ParaNorman director…

Opening on Election Day, The Front Runner is the absolute worst movie for the political moment

C

A little over a month ago, Brett Kavanaugh sat in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and delivered an angry, disqualifyingly partisan diatribe in which he not only denied the sexual assault accusations against him but also expressed outrage that he’d even been obligated to respond. “This is a circus,” Kavanaugh…

Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown wanted to play a superpowered girl in Logan, too

Although she broke out in Stranger Things last year, Millie Bobby Brown has been taking her time cultivating her résumé.
