    'Harry Potter' turns 20

    Believe it or not, the world almost missed out on Harry Potter. Author J.K. Rowling has told the story of how she received "loads" of rejections before "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" (known in the U.S. as "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone") was finally published on June 26, 1997. Rowling once told fans that she couldn't even get books published under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith, which she used for some thrillers she wrote.

    The outrage over Gal Gadot’s $300,000 paycheck for Wonder Woman, explained

The Great War, a.k.a. a four-year struggle that killed 17 million people and wounded 20 million more. Chris DeRosa is a military historian who teaches at Monmouth University. He is also a fan.

Executive Producer and Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley told SFX Magazine that the soon-to-be produced episodical will be something unlike either of the film adaptations and focus more on storytelling, and specifically the darker side of the fantasy spectrum.

    Bill Nye will be back on Netflix to save the world with science

    Bill Nye's Netflix talk show was met with mixed reviews, but it must have done well enough, because it's coming back for another season. The streaming platform has released an official teaser for Bill Nye Saves the World's second season, which the science educator has posted on Facebook. It starts by showing anti-science tweets and those calling Nye a "totalitarian eugenicist in a fake lab coat," "Bill Lie the Pseudoscience Guy," a quack and even Satan, to drive home the point that the world needs more saving.

    ‘F is for Family’: The Darkest New Netflix Drama Worth Watching Is an Animated Comedy

    The more prestige dramas there are, the harder it is to watch all of them. They’re long. They’re heavy. And for most content on Netflix, they’re far too loosely edited, which only makes them feel longer and heavier. So as the streaming giant prepares to release a 30-minute live-action comedy-drama hybrid this week (the much-anticipated “GLOW”), it’s important to note Netflix has been killing it when making shorter dramatic content, with the most recent example being “F is for Family.”

    Lebanon wants to ban ‘Wonder Woman’ because of its Israeli star

    Push to boycott film reportedly prodded by BDS group, which cites ex-IDF soldier Gal Gadot’s expressions of solidarity with Israeli soldiers fighting Hamas in Gaza. Lebanon’s ministry of economy is seeking to ban the 2017 Wonder Woman movie because its lead actress — Gal Gadot — is an Israeli, though a formal request for a ban has not yet been received, a Lebanese security official said Tuesday. A ban would require a recommendation from a six-ministry-member committee, a process that also has not yet began, the official said.

"I'm going everywhere, and the message will be the same, that the resistance began January 20 and it's up to us to stand up, together." Is This The Life We Really Want? is certainly an album for our times. Waters put the finishing touches on it after his controversial appearance at Desert Trip in October, where disgruntled Trump supporters reportedly walked out in the face of Waters' anti-Trump message.

    It’s fashionable to say that politically driven shows like Veep and House of Cards have been made irrelevant by the Trump administration, because no scheme the shows’ writers dream up could be nuttier than whatever headline you read right before you clicked on this review. But that thought never occurred to me while watching the bugnuts fifth season of Netflix’s potboiler. I keep seeing the same joke recycled on social media: that the current White House is House of Cards as performed by the cast of Veep.

    Netflix’s CEO is ready to cancel some shit

    Netflix takes a famously light hand when it comes to canceling its shows, to the point that an abrupt first-season elimination—like the one that recently ended Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down—constitutes a major divergence from the streaming service’s usual patterns. If you ask the company’s CEO, Reed Hastings, though, it might be time for Netflix to start giving way more stuff the axe. The trouble, Hastings says, is that the company’s shows have just been too darn good.

Spidey’s latest onscreen foe is an airborne jerk who goes by the nom de guerre the Vulture. Played by the dependably movie-improving Michael Keaton, the baddie will join Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, and Venom as big-screen antagonists for the wall-crawler.
