Disney

+ on Friday is rated PG-13, taking the prized Disney property out of G territory for the first time in its 60-year screen history. Cruella, the skunk-haired villain with a taste for puppy fur, has finally run the kid-friendly rating under the wheels of her Coupe de Ville en route to the box office.

Disney’s choice to ditch young audiences for a Cruella origin story set in 1970s punk rock London marks the Disney brand’s third PG-13 release since last year—one of its biggest flurries of PG-13 movies to date—and

Should Briana Continue To Film With Her ‘New Guy’ Javi On Teen Mom 2?

Briana has a “new guy” in her life named Javi — and during tonight’s Teen Mom 2 episode, the mother of two filmed with the tattoo artist for the first time.

Some context about the duo: The two have been “hanging out” for a few months, he is a single father (the pair’s kids have met) and Roxanne has yet to be introduced to him.

While Briana admitted it was a “struggle” to show this side of herself to the TM2 audience, Javi seemed at ease as cameras rolled while he worked on some ink on Bri (Bri’s friend Shae

After 20 women came forward to tell the Guardian they had been sexually harassed and bullied by the actor, director, screenwriter and producer Noel Clarke, the question on many people’s lips was: did other people in the industry know about this? And if not, why not?

The assistant film director Anna Avramenko, who worked as an intern on the film Doghouse in 2008, told the Guardian that Clarke approached her on set and “started trying to

Sarah Colt on Why 2021 Is the Right Time for a Film About Billy Graham

Tenacious and tireless, Billy Graham was blessed with what more than one observer called animal magnetism. When he died at age 99 in 2018, he was estimated to have preached in person to 210 million people.

He was also a savvy political player, and that’s the focus of the new PBS “American Experience” documentary, “Billy Graham.” Premiering Monday, the two-hour film, directed by Sarah Colt (“The Disrupted”), portrays a preacher drawn to power like a moth to a flame. After getting the cold shoulder from Harry Truman, a staunch believer in the separation of church and state, Graham went on

Every year in the draft, a player or player falls well beyond where they are expected to be drafted and falls into a team’s lap at a point where they can hardly believe their luck.
