Ava DuVernay Will Direct Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o in the Buddy Movie of Your Dreams

The photo that launched a meme that inspired a social media dream is now becoming a reality because sometimes the internet has some okay ideas (sometimes). Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o are teaming up to co-star in a buddy movie directed by Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Issa Rae — if that sounds too good to be true, that’s because it was…until it wasn’t.

‘The Angry Birds Movie 2’ Will Officially Smash Into Theaters in 2019

Following a successful collaboration on last year’s The Angry Birds Movie, Sony and Rovio are teaming up for another animated avian outing — that’s not really surprising, since the first film was a fairly big hit at the box office, making it a matter of when, not if, a sequel would happen. That sequel will now officially arrive in 2019, which also happens to be the 10th anniversary of the popular mobile game.

First ‘Jurassic World 2’ Promo Art Has Its Eye on You

With Jurassic World 2 heading into production this summer, we’ve still got a bit of a wait ahead of us before we see so much as an official still or teaser. But the first piece of promotional art for the upcoming sequel has landed online, featuring a deadly dinosaur peering out from the jungle — you know, like dinos tend to do. It doesn’t give us a lot to go on, but it should get you a little more excited for our return to Jurassic World.

We Almost Lived in a World Where Jeff Goldblum Was the Voice of Apple’s Siri

We don’t really need further evidence that we are living in a total nightmare (or an alternate timeline, if you’re one of Those People), but then a piece of news comes along that forces us to confront the true horror of reality by offering a painful glimpse at a beautiful life that could’ve been — and never was (at least not in this timeline, if you’re one of Those People). Today, it’s the heartbreaking revelation that Jeff Goldblum — national treasure, king of the silver foxes and master of the universe — could have been the voice of Siri on your iPhone. In the mournful words of the wise Adele, WE COULD’VE HAD IT AAAALLLLLL.

Will Smith and Pedro Almodovar Butt Heads Over Netflix at Cannes

The jury at this year’s Cannes film festival features a diverse group of acclaimed filmmakers and actors, including Park Chan-wook, Jessica Chastain, Pedro Almodóvar and Will Smith — yes, as in the artist formerly known as the Fresh Prince. It’s only the second day of the festival, but there’s already a debate between two of this year’s jurors regarding Netflix, which caused a bit of controversy at Cannes before the festival even began.

A Man Is Suing His Date for Texting During ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

It’s a story fit for a mediocre rom-com: A 37-year-old man from Austin, Texas is suing a woman for texting during a screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And not just some random stranger, either — she was his date. In what he describes as “a first date from hell,” the woman allegedly refused to put her phone away and continued to text until he finally suggested she take the conversation outside. She did just that, taking her phone out of the theater, through the lobby, and out to the parking lot, where she drove off and left her date without a ride home.

‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ Eyes ‘The Crown’s Claire Foy as the Next Lisbeth Salander

Claire Foy could be making the transition from Queen Elizabeth to Mean Lisbeth — the star of the acclaimed Netflix series The Crown is reportedly in talks to take on the role of vengeful hacker Lisbeth Salander in Sony’s upcoming Girl With the Dragon Tattoo reboot / sequel. But Rooney Mara’s extra-dedicated portrayal of the punky protagonist (and David Fincher’s artful remake) is a tough act to follow.

Jeff Goldblum Teases Ian Malcolm’s ‘Saucy, Sassy’ Return in ‘Jurassic World 2’

Jeff Goldblum is a National Treasure (like, is Nicolas Cage looking for him, or what?), the latest evidence of which can be found in a charmingly off-kilter new interview, wherein the actor, jazz enthusiast and surprise sausage salesman talks about returning to the Jurassic Park franchise — or, as he likes to call it, “dino-entertainment.” And the series is about to get a whole lot more entertaining now that Dr. Ian Malcolm is back.
