Yesterday in Cannes belonged to Loving, the film written and directed by Jeff Nichols that tells the true story of Mildred and Richard Loving, who broke the law by getting married in 1958. How?

New photos of Idris Elba in South Africa shooting The Dark Tower. People seem to be pretty excited to see him in costume as the gunslinger. I don’t know the story, so this means nothing to me.

Money Monster is several different movies rolled into one, all of them mediocre. It stars two of the biggest old school Movie Stars in the world, but only puts them on screen together for about eight minutes.
