Sibling rivalry culminates in a knockdown brawl between Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller's characters in the new trailer for Noah Baumbach's film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), but the volatility doesn't stop there.

'Stronger' Review: Jake Gyllenhaal Does 'Boston Strong' the Right Way, Warts and All
18 hours ago
Based on a True Story: That phrase – Hollywood-speak for bullshit – can put audiences on guard for fact-fudging and bogus uplift. Not so with Stronger, a powerhouse biopic that sidesteps the pitfalls of the genre in favor of keeping it real, warts and all. Kudos to a brilliant, hilariously unexpected performance from Jake Gyllenhaal as Jeff Bauman, a beer-guzzling, Boston boyo who lost both his legs, just above the knee, in the 2013 Marathon bombing. For director David Gordon Green (George Washington, Pineapple Express), the way to truly honor the man is »

20 hours ago
Hillary Clinton had a lot to say when she sat down with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Tuesday night, and when the chat involved foreign relations and Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election, she had an anecdote or two to share about Vladimir Putin.
"He really doesn't like democracy. He thinks it's an inconvenient, messy process," she said of the Russian leader. "And he doesn't like us. He wants to destabilize our country, sow doubt about our democracy. … He wants to undermine how we see each other."

'Battle of the Sexes' Review: Imagine Hillary and Trump Swinging Rackets
20 September 2017 6:03 AM, PDT
What does a movie about a 1973 tennis exhibition match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs have to say to millennials when everyone knows the war between so-called women's libbers and male chauvinist pigs ended last century? Ha! Starring a top-form Emma Stone as King and a perceptively flamboyant Steve Carell as Riggs, Battle of the Sexes is not an overtly political movie; it's a blast about two tennis champions going over the top to make a point. But in speaking to the marginalized, the movie comments bluntly on the here and now. »

When Mike Judge began work on Tales From the Tour Bus, a new country-music docuseries for Cinemax that premieres on September 22nd, he did so with a mission.

'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' Review: It's 'James Bond on Laughing Gas,' Violent as Ever
20 September 2017 4:59 AM, PDT
Whooshing by on screen like James Bond on laughing gas, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a breathlessly comic, sometimes exhausting sequel to the surprise 2015 smash that all but begged for an R-rated follow-up. Now it's here – and just as manic and over-the-top as you'd expect, only more so (the film is 141 minutes long). Those who hated the first film will be twice as irritated. Screw 'em. True Kingsman fans will appreciate that director Matthew Vaughn reacted to digs at The Secret Service for being gratuitously violent, sexually adolescent and politically »

19 September 2017 9:15 AM, PDT
Times Square, 1971: The sleaziest cesspool in New York City is about to get sleazier. All around 42nd Street – known as "the Deuce" – the streets are full of pimps and hookers, XXX theaters and drug dealers, cops and johns and gangsters. The obscenity laws are relaxing, opening the way for the porn business to expand into the mainstream – massage parlors, private booths, sex shops. The cops let it all happen, as long as they keep getting their cut of the money. Everybody here is a tough crowd, because everybody's got a tough story. »

Bill Skarsgård revealed in a new interview that the recently released remake of Stephen King's It, for all its box-office success and nostalgic terror, originally included a scene that even he considered "disturbing."

Rob Sheffield on Emmys 2017: The Good, the Bad and the Sean Spicer Suck-Up
18 September 2017 10:13 AM, PDT
"This is TV's highest honor – us celebrating us," Stephen Colbert announced at the start of the 2017 Emmy Awards. "Tonight, we binge ourselves." It was a joke about smug self-congratulation probably intended to sound more ironic than it did. The Emmy ceremony, as always, was a night of the television world celebrating itself as the best Western civilization has to offer, not to mention an all-around swell bunch of people. The ego in the room was a marvel to behold – even when Seth MacFarlane wasn't onscreen. Colbert did his best with his Trump gags, »
