Dear Gossips,

The American Film Institute (AFI) released its Top 10 of 2017 yesterday. We’ll discuss some of the entries through the day but in this space I want to once again spotlight The Big Sick, co-written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V Gordon and, by alphabetical order, the first title to be named.  Read Full Intro

Robert Pattinson gave his best performance to date this year in Good Time. He’s gotten a Gotham Award nomination for it, and an Independent Spirit Award nod, too. People have noticed him doing Good Work this year (he also gave a solid performance in James Grey’s Lost City of Z). Full Story

In 2015, Jurassic World made a billion dollars, so a sequel was inevitable.
