Black Mirror is a sharp and witty satirical drama akin to The Twilight Zone, but with a more technological vibe. The show has explored many of those dangers with our obsession with technology, the inability to curb it, our reliance on it, and what would happen if there was no oversight.
And now Black Mirror will be back again for season five. Though it will have a significantly shorter season than any of the seasons that came before, it will still have the same major star power as any other season. Miley Cyrus, Anthony Mackie, and Topher Grace will all star in the three episodes that will appear this season. An official trailer has been released for the new season, and you can check it out below.
Spider-Man (Tom Holland) will have a much bigger responsibility in the MCU than being a Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man after the events of Avengers: Endgame. But before he can assume those responsibilities, he will go on vacation in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Which sounds fun. That is until Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) turns it into a world-saving mission. Now he must face new elemental threats that pose a danger to his world, and the only person that could help him is Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal), a person with mystical powers who is very familiar with these creatures. Oh, did I mention that Beck hints that he is from another world?
“What I did for summer vacation” reports are usually generic recaps of what kids did during their time off. So why not take that concept and make a superhero blockbuster. That’s what Marvel Studios is doing for Spider-Man: Far From Home, the follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame, which Marvel released a teaser trailer for today.
Tom Holland returns to play Peter Parker, otherwise known as your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Except, he’s not going to be swinging around Queens. He will be going crossing the Atlantic where he will be facing off against elemental villains with the help of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and a new ally named Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). Check out the trailer along with a poster below.

“Before we deal with the crime of the century, let’s get rid of the fucking rotting corpse.”
30 years ago, Shane Black sold his first screenplay to producer Joel Silver. An action flick about a strait-laced detective forced to team with an unhinged cop, Lethal Weapon was a huge success, spawning multiple sequels. Black’s storytelling set a new standard for action comedies and redefined the “buddy film” genre. He was one of the highest paid screenwriters in Hollywood, writing movies like The Last Boy Scout, Last Action Hero, and The Long Kiss Goodnight before disappearing in the late ’90s.
Black resurfaced in 2005 with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, his directorial debut. A neo-noir buddy comedy, the film follows a thief impersonating an actor and a private eye as they attempt to solve a murder. In 2013, he returned with Iron Man 3, a Marvel comic book movie that doubles as one of Black’s signature action-comedies. A snarky superhero and his by-the-books sidekick have to rescue the President of the United States from a terrorist who isn’t a terrorist at all, but rather an actor portraying one. Oh, and it’s set at Christmastime, too. It’s the most Shane Black thing ever, until The Nice Guys that is.
