Jimmy Kimmel Will Be Back to Host the 90th Oscars Ceremony

Jimmy Kimmel did a fine job hosting the Oscars this year. He played it relatively safe in his opening monologue and throughout the evening, despite a few political jabs. ABC loved Kimmel’s hosting so much that they’ve even decided to bring him back for a second ye

Meet Lightning McQueen’s Newest Rival in the Latest ‘Cars 3’ Trailer

Who knew automated vehicles were also subject to the scrutiny that comes with aging? They may not have to worry about wrinkles, greying hair, or sagging skin, but when cars reach a certain age, it’s straight to the junkyard. (This incites a whole other philosophical discussion around the Cars characters and whether or not they are sentient beings – is their consciousness the engine or the frame, the ghost or the shell?)

Ian McKellen Could Have Played Dumbledore, but Turned the Role Down Because of Richard Harris

Hearts broke across the world for Harry Potter fans when Richard Harris died in 2002. Warner Bros. was only two movies deep into the eight-film franchise and they’d already lost the perfect Dumbledore. The British actor embodied J.K. Rowling’s beloved character in every way, from his patient and wise demeanor to his half-moon spectacles and long white beard.

But what if the man behind another iconic wizard had taken over for Harris instead?

‘Cars 3’ Adds Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, and Lea DeLaria With New Character Photos

Cars 3 is a thing I keep forgetting is happening. It isn’t exactly a Pixar sequel people are dying to see – does anyone who’s not an eight-year-old actually love the Cars movies?
