If you watched the trailer for “Keanu” starring Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael Key of Comedy Central’s beloved series “Key &Peele” _ and wondered “is this a real movie?” you’re not alone. In fact, it’s one of the auto-searches on Google. It’s understandable, as most know “Key &Peele” as a veritable factory of genre-bending viral sketches that engage with the tropes of Hollywood. But yes, “Keanu” is a real movie, a real funny one at that.

Netflix announced Wednesday a return to Camp Firewood and a new original series based on the 2001 film “Wet Hot American Summer.”
Call it the Decade Movie Pact; ever since first collaborating on “Pretty Woman” in 1990, Julia Roberts and Garry Marshall have made a movie together every 10 years.
Blanche DuBois in “A Streetcar Named Desire” said it first, and best: “I don’t want realism. I want magic!” Maybe it’s the Blanche in me who prefers magic to realism in certain types of fairy tales, but I have a hard time loving any movie dominated by ultra-crisp photorealistic animation designed to look real, not animated. That sort of realism often looks and feel misguided, slightly clinical. And it’s a substantial caveat when it comes to Disney’s new live-(ish) action version of “The Jungle Book.”
In a victory for Katy Perry, a Los Angeles judge announced Wednesday that she intends to block an effort by nuns to sell a convent in the city’s Los Feliz neighborhood to a competing buyer.
Ken Burns has added another face to the metaphorical Mt. Rushmore of a career dedicated to chronicling great events and people of American history: Jackie Robinson, subject of a four-hour documentary airing Monday and Tuesday over PBS.
Everyone’s talking about it. Whether it be a Broadway geek, a diehard hip-hop fan or just someone who listens to good music of any genre, they all have one thing in common: an obsession with “Hamilton,” a hip-hop musical about the forgotten founding father on the $10 bill. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s masterpiece is so perfect that one song took him an entire year to write. So what’s the big deal? What makes this musical so different from all the other ones?
Sunday’s ACM Awards show, broadcast live on CBS from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, was a remarkably low-energy affair, especially in light of the ACM’s repeated insistence that its flagship event is “country music’s party of the year.”
Back in 2002, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” became a bona fide cultural phenomenon, a romantic comedy that mined the cultural specificities of the Greek heritage of unknown writer and star Nia Vardalos. The film picked up an Oscar nomination for Vardalos’ original screenplay, everyone began adding “My Big Fat” in front of various nouns, and we all learned a thing or two about the versatility of Windex. Fourteen years later, Vardalos and gang are back again for another wedding, but this time, it’s to drastically diminished returns.
Of all the post-apocalyptic young adult trifles, the “Divergent” series has been the sexiest — thanks to the steamy make outs between stars Theo James and Shailene Woodley — but it’s also strangely the most sanitized. In the third installment, “Allegiant” (or rather “The Divergent Series: Allegiant — Part 1”), there’s an attempt to dirty things up a bit, venturing outside the wall that separates Chicago from everything else. But all the toxic rain and tent cities in the world can’t give this film a true sense of earthy viscera. Despite all the brawling, shooting and kissing that goes on, these films are entirely bloodless.
Whether you are a fan of rock, country, hip-hop or pop, at some point in your life you most likely sang a portion of Meat Loaf’s “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” out loud. His legendary 1977 album, “Bat Out of Hell,” is very often part of almost any album collection.
A once-secret trove of songwriting diaries, letters and other documents belonging to Bob Dylan, one of the most notoriously private figures in pop music history, has been acquired by a consortium of institutions in Oklahoma, where the new Bob Dylan Archive will reside near that of his musical idol and mentor, Woody Guthrie.
As a young boy in an acting family, Kiefer Sutherland didn’t realize how big a star his father, Donald, was in Hollywood.
Before Peak TV and binge-viewing, before live tweeting and streaming sites, there was a long-running series that found one of its highest-rated episodes in the story of a 4-year-old girl who set the class bird free, then suffered bruised emotions after her pipsqueak preschool classmates got upset with her.
As soon as James Franco finished reading the Stephen King novel “11.22.63” he contacted the horror writer. Franco wanted to see if he could option the book about the John F. Kennedy assassination for a film or television project.
