Idris Elba reads romantic fan fiction about himself in a new video for 20th Century Fox. The actor, at turns amused and seemingly creeped out, narrates the lustful tales written by Internet pseudonyms like SundanceMargo22 and JellyBeanJulia. “It’s been snowing for two hours, and he’s still not back,” Elba reads dramatically....

HBO has premiered the first trailer for Spielberg, a feature-length documentary about the renowned filmmaker and master storyteller. “Every time I start a new scene, I get nervous.

“When I die,” Harry Dean Stanton told me once, “people are going to say, ‘I thought he was dead already.'” Typical Stanton – and atypically wrong. Though reports insist that the man actually has died at 91, avid moviegoers know he’s always been around when we needed a Stanton fix at the movies. Hell, he made over 200 of them....

We came, we saw, we dropped Visine into our tired eyes and then we saw some more – over the past 11 days, we’ve let the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival dominate our viewing time with a host of unique visions, singular voices and the occasional marquee-name project gambling on the event’s award-season platforming skills. Some 50 movies later, we staggered out of the city’s screening rooms and theaters having seen some major duds (let us never speak of Suburbicon again), a few genuinely disturbing works of art...
