  1. HBO will give Stephen King's 2018's horror novel The Outsider the miniseries treatment early in 2020, and if this first trailer is anything to go by the show seems primed to combine straight-up horror with the ongoing mystery of an impossible murder. 

    Ben Mendelsohn, Jason Bateman, Cynthia Erivo, Bill Camp, and more round out the excellent cast to join the "actors who have been in Stephen King adaptations" club, which has approximately eight trillion members worldwide. 

    The Outsiderpremieres January 12, 2020 on HBO.

  2. Decades only make sense in retrospect because being alive during one is a series of experiences, while looking back is a remembrance. Pinpointing ten-year trends is an inexact endeavor precisely because the arc of popular taste is only noticeable when it’s over or, as with the case with entertainment in the 2010s, never seems to end. 

    One only has to look at the top 20 highest-grossing films of the 2010s to see that our media climate is saturated with franchises, sequels, superheroes and all of those satisfying, big-budget movies that actually get butts in theater seats. It wasn’t that different in the 2000s, when seventeen of the top 20 films were sequels or book adaptations (or both, there’s a lot of Harry Potter on there), but even as that trend continues there has been one small shift that says a lot about how TV and movies shifted this decade — in the 2010s, entertainment began to look even further inward for its inspiration, choosing to ceaselessly expand upon that which was already done as opposed to moving on to other, new ideas.  Read more...

  3. Paul Rudd is an actor, writer, producer... and now a hot sauce champion.

    On the latest episode of First We Feast's Hot Ones, Rudd stopped by to chomp on some hot cauliflower vegan wings, ask Sean Evans a few questions, discuss Guy Fieri, and shed some light on his new Netflix comedy, Living With Yourself.

    The ageless actor strayed from wing discussions to also chat about his love of tea, crumpets, and Yorkshire pudding, and he even ranked a few famous British biscuits. Bonus: He taught the world how to make it look like there's a naked person's butt in any photo they take. Important!

    As the wings got hotter, Rudd lost his cool a bit and wound up acting out an impromptu emotional scene. It's a sight that simply must be seen. Read more...

  4. The Facebook co-founder who has called for the destruction of the behemoth he helped create is putting his money where his mouth is.

    Hughes co-chairs the Economic Security Project, an organization dedicated to reorienting the economy in favor of people over corporations. Thursday, they announced a new target in that fight: corporate monopolies in tech, healthcare, agriculture, finance, and beyond. 

    “Americans understand corporate power has gotten out of control,” Hughes told the Washington Post, “and a lot of [groups] are interested in organizing to push back against them.”

    Hughes, along with several high-profile foundations, is committing $10 million to research and advocacy work in anti-trust law and policy through 2021. The specific recipients of the funds have yet to be announced. Read more...

  5. Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings died on Oct. 17, at the age of 68, after "complications concerning longstanding health challenges," according to his office

    The son of sharecroppers, Cummings first won his congressional seat in 1996, eventually serving 12 terms in the House. His tenure was marked by a commitment to justice. 

    In a video from his first speech on the floor of the House of Representatives after taking office, Cummings speaks to the importance of taking action while you can.

    Reading from a poem he says, "I only have a minute, 60 seconds in it. Forced upon me, I did not choose it, but I know that I must use it."  Read more...
