The second trailer for Black Panther has arrived, to be attached to Thor: Ragnarok, and it gives us a better look at the world of Wakanda, which looks AMAZING. The combo of traditional African art and fashion with the high-tech comic book wizardry of Wakanda is super f*cking cool, and the costumes, in particular, are incredible. Full Story

In April, I said a prayer to Blue Ivy, our dear sweet lamb of Beyoncé, that All Eyez on Me would be good. Every piece I've written leading up to the release of the biopic about Tupac Shakur's life and legacy has essentially been a fingers-crossed, hold-my-breath wish that the film would be as compelling as its source material. Full Story

It has been approximately 72 hours since the Black Panther teaser trailer was released and I have yet to find anything resembling chill when it comes to this 1 minute and 54 second preview. I screamed out loud three times during my first watch. The second time, I teared up a bit. By the third, my partner had to take my phone away and say, “OK. Full Story

SPOILERS The producers behind The Walking Dead spent all summer promising that the arrival of the villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) would be a reset for the show, which is tacitly admitting that something had gone wrong and they needed a big new character to drive the show back on track. Full Story

The teaser trailer for the upcoming Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me came out on his 45th birthday. The full trailer was released yesterday, on the 20th anniversary of his death. It has been TWENTY years since Pac died. There are full grown adults of drinking age who don’t remember a music world in which Tupac Shakur existed. Full Story

Most people who came out of Captain America: Civil War wanted more Black Panther. As Sarah keeps repeating, this is what we all want next. And soon. But while there’s a new Thor in production (no one is more excited about the third Thor movie than Tom Hiddleston), the standalone Black Panther doesn’t come out until 2018. Full Story

Yesterday would have been Tupac Shakur’s 45th birthday. To mark the occasion, the teaser trailer for the upcoming biopic All Eyez on Me was released. When Lainey and I saw Straight Outta Compton for the first time in theatres, we couldn’t get over how much the dude playing Tupac looked EXACTLY like him. Full Story
