Don Rickles, Iconic Comedian and Actor, Dead at 90
Don Rickles’ talents were seemingly limitless: An outrageous insult comic, a gifted dramatic actor, a welcome sight on stages and screens (big and small), and a constant presence whose career endured for decades, often surpassing his contemporaries.

‘Pete’s Dragon’ Unleashes One More Magical Trailer
This has been an underwhelming summer (to say the least), but there’s still hope that August will end this movie season on a positive note. One of our most anticipated releases of the month is Pete’s Dragon, which our own Erin Whitney calls a “worthy remake” and “one of the most stunning live-action animation hybrids Disney has made in years.” That’s the sort of praise that could really get you excited for Disney’s latest reimagining, but just in case you needed a little extra convincing, this new trailer is pretty persuasive.
Emma Watson’s New Movie Only Made About 60 Dollars in Its Opening Weekend
Everyone loves Emma Watson — the former star of the Harry Potter series has not only proven her worth as a talented actor, but she’s incredibly likable and, if nothing else, her film choices have been somewhat interesting post-Hogwarts (if not always great). So it comes as a bit of a surprise that her latest film, the cult thriller The Colony, only brought in 47 pounds in its opening weekend in the UK. That’s about 60 dollars in the US. That’s not a lot.

Another ‘Austin Powers’ Sequel Could Still Swing Its Way Into Theaters
Unlike most comedy sequels, the Austin Powers franchise only became more successful at the box office with each additional outing (sorry, Neighbors 2), with Austin Powers in Goldmember generating $300 million worldwide. It’s been 14 years since Mike Myers last donned the mop-top and spouted a bunch of delightfully cheesy innuendoes, and though we may not be any closer to a fourth Austin Powers outing, director Jay Roach says it could still very much happen.
SNL: Fred Armisen and Some Very Special Guests Start a ’70s Southern Jam Band
There were plenty of fantastic moments in SNL’s Season 41 finale, and while the last sketch of the night might not have been the most laugh-out-loud funny among them, it was definitely the most wonderful. Host Fred Armisen brought a few of his fellow SNL vets together along with a couple of special guests to form the perfect, subtly quirky ’70s southern jam band, complete with 20-something members and a tambourine or two.
