Scarlett Johansson Regrets Her Tone Deaf ‘Rub and Tug’ Statement

Scarlett Johannson is never shy of sharing an unpopular opinion. She dismissed the white-washing complaints with Ghost in the Shell. The movie star ignored critical voices from the transgender community after she was cast in Rub & Tug, in which she would’ve starred as a trans man.

The Who Guitarist Pete Townshend Apologizes for Tone Deaf Jokes about Deceased Band Mates

He’s far from done with the past, though, going as far as to bring back a presumed-to-be-dead villain, Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), the big bad of the Star Wars franchise. The trailer revealed his return with his signature sinister laugh, and according to Abrams, his comeback from...

Another Remake of ‘The Fugitive’ is in the Works, ‘Cause Why Not?

Not even The Fugitive can outrun the remake craze. The classic Harrison Ford-led 1993 thriller was a remake based on Roy Huggins’ television show from the 1960s.
