If You Want to Make a ‘Star Trek’ Fan Film and Don’t Want to Get Sued by Paramount, These Are the Rules

Just a few months ago, a Star Trek fan film made headlines in a way no one wants their fan film to make headlines: As the target of a lawsuit. Paramount sued the producers of Prelude to Axanar, a Trek fan movie that had raised over $500,000 on Indiegogo, claiming it was infringing on their many of their copyrights. They were almost certainly correct, but the story got a lot of attention, as stories about big conglomerates suing the pants off poor individuals often do.

Jennifer Lawrence and Adam McKay Will Team For Corporate Drama

Adam McKay and Jennifer Lawrence both made movies about big business last year. Lawrence starred in Joy for David O. Russell, a biopic about entrepreneur and Miracle Mop innovator Joy Mangano, who rose from humble beginnings to the top of a home improvement empire. McKay’s movie, his first break from surrealistic comedy, was The Big Short, adapted from the Michael Lewis book, about the men who accurately predicted (and wildly profited from) the 2008 economic collapse. In the heated atmosphere of awards season, McKay and Lawrence found themselves as competitors for prizes and box office. Now they’ll team up to make something together about what is seemingly a common interest in the American economy.

‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Review: The Aliens Are Back, Bigger, Dumber, and Stupider Than Ever

Like so many Hollywood blockbusters these days, Independence Day: Resurgence ends with a beginning. Before the dust has settled on the final conflict, the next conflict is already set in motion. Rather than tying a bow around the previous two hours of planet-leveling carnage, Resurgence immediately begins teasing another sequel.

‘David Brent: Life on the Road’ Trailer: And You Thought ‘The Office’ Was Awkward

To us, The Office is one of the best comedy series of all time. To David Brent, it’s a documentary about his life. One he seems weirdly proud of. Or at least not so ashamed of that he’s not willing to talk them again for a new documentary about his life now as a struggling musician fronting the band Foregone Conclusion.

‘Tickled’ Review: This Has Got to Be the Craziest Documentary Of the Year

There’s a point in any tickle attack, as you struggle and strain to catch your breath, where things tip over from funny to painful and maybe even a little scary. The fascinating and bizarre new documentary Tickled follows a similar arc. It began when New Zealand journalist David Farrier discovered a “sport” called Competitive Endurance Tickling, where men are flown to Los Angeles from all around the world, put up in lavish hotel, and paid thousands of dollars to get tickled on camera for as long as they can bear.

‘Finding Dory’ Review: Pixar’s Fishy Franchise Just Keeps Swimming

Like every other Pixar release, Finding Dory opens with a short film. This one is called “Piper”; it’s about a little bird learning to hunt for food among the scary ocean waves. It’s a terrific showcase for Pixar’s latest advancements in computer animation, which in recent years has taken on the qualities of great nature photography. The sunlight sparkles against the water, which ripples and flows with uncanny accuracy, and when the little bird kicks a pile of sand in a crab’s face you can practically count the individual grains.

‘O.J.: Made in America’ Is Essential Viewing

I’m a freshman in high school. After months of legal proceedings, the jury finally reaches a verdict in the O.J. Simpson case. For the only time in my four years of secondary education, everything stops. Several classes worth of kids pile into the only room on the hall with a cable television. The room is packed. Kids are literally sitting on each other's laps because there’s nowhere else for them to go. It gets quiet.

Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott Will Reboot the Ray Parker Jr. Theme For Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’

My daughter is five months old, and at this point her experience of popular culture is mostly limited to board books. (She’s a big fan of DC’s My First Book of Girl Power.) She’s too young to watch movies or television, despite my repeated insistence that Gymkata is an important work of art that must be considered and appreciated.
