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

Movies about people falling in love when one of them is dying is a particular sub-genre of romantic drama, and the latest entry into the field is Me Before You, a tearjerker adapted by Jojo Moyes from her novel of the same name, and directed by Thea Sharrock, a stage director making her feature film debut. Full Story

Well here’s a sequel guaranteed to break summer 2016’s case of sequelitis. Thirteen years after Finding Nemo, Finding Dory is a nearly equal companion piece. Though it doesn’t reach the ecstatic highs of Pixar at their best (Inside Out, Wall-E, Toy Story 3, Up), Finding Dory is a very fun, funny, and occasionally touching movie about friendship, forgetfulness, and fish. Full Story

(Lainey: fell behind last month and didn’t get to posting Sarah’s review of The Nice Guys. Then, the next week, there were no more new photos of Ryan Gosling. He showed up for his friend Nicolas Winding Refn in LA yesterday at The Neon Demon premiere though. So please enjoy these new pictures and the belated praise for The Nice Guys. Full Story

It’s a bad year for sequels. The summer box office is down 22% from last year, mostly because sequel after sequel has failed. Naturally, this has everyone clutching their pearls and wondering what’s gone wrong, whether or not Finding Dory and Suicide Squad will be enough to save summer 2016, if Independence Day: Resurgence will be a Jurassic World-style surprise, and just how badly Tarzan will flop (prediction: pretty badly). Full Story

She has started a production shingle, LuckyChap Entertainment, and she’s already got some solid projects lined up, including a Harley Quinn spin-off of Suicide Squad, and now a biopic of Tonya Harding called I, Tonya—I bet they end up changing that title. Full Story
