Yesterday the teaser for Adam Sandler’s next vacation enjoyed on Netflix’s dime was released, announcing that The Do-Over will be released on May 27. That puts it up against X-Men: Apocalypse, which fuels my theory that Sandler really wants to be in a superhero movie. Full Story

Countdown to Batman vs Superman. It doesn’t have much competition this weekend either. Or the week after that. So it’s free to dominate the box office for at least two or three weeks.

Olivia Wilde was on Howard Stern this week. She’s promoting Vinyl, which I haven’t started watching yet, and I should, but again – there is SO MUCH GOOD TV!
