As award season starts to heat up and the nominations come rolling in, we found ourselves wondering which films we personally found to be the best of the best this year.

Finally, Some Good News: One Day at a Time Season 3 Will Hit Netflix in February!

By | December 13, 2018

If you were at all worried that Rita Moreno would need to take time off of One Day at a Time‘s third season to film the West Side Story remake, never fear – it appears she’s back and better than ever.

After months of wondering whether Netflix would give the beloved family sitcom the green light on season three at all, we officially have a premiere date on our hands: Feb. 8! Moreno will be joined by costars Justina Machado, Isabella Gomez, and Marcel Ruiz, who all play members of a Cuban-American family living in Los Angeles (along with Todd Grinnell, who plays handyman Schneider). The third season comprises 13 30-minutes episodes, so you can expect to cry at least 13 times in the near future.

Check out the cute date announcement above, then prepare yourself to see Gloria Estefan (who sings the show’s theme song) play Lydia’s baby sister and arch-nemesis, Mirtha, when the show returns in a few months.

By | December 13, 2018

After the critical acclaim for 2017 horror movies like Get Out and It, we (aka POPSUGAR’s most horror-obsessed writers, Quinn Keaney and Ryan Roschke) were more excited than ever to see what thrills, chills, and all-out screams the genre could deliver in 2018. While there were a few notable missteps – we, respectfully, would like to pretend Truth or Dare never happened – the year has been full of inventive, truly horrific stories playing out on the big screen. Once you finish checking out our top picks ahead, see what horror movies are headed your way in 2019.

A Venom Sequel Is Happening, So Start Stocking Up on Snacks (Eyes, Lungs, Pancreas . . .)

By | December 12, 2018

Venom arrived in theaters back in October to middling reviews, but that didn’t stop talk of all the potential sequels and spinoffs it might spawn.

In an August interview with Total Film, Tom Hardy revealed that Marvel could make up to three Venom movies, saying, “We’ve signed up for three of them. So it’s very much an open case. We’ll see what people’s responses are to it.” Variety also predicted that if the film delivered at the box office, then Sony would move fast to introduce a number of heroes and villains from the Spider-Man universe in the form of sequels to the Hardy outing, as well as stand-alone films. At the moment, Sony’s licensing pact with Marvel affords it the rights to around 900 characters, so the possibilities are pretty much endless.

Now, in December, we have official confirmation that a Venom sequel is indeed moving forward thanks to the film’s co-writer, Jeff Pinkner. While being interviewed by Discussing Film, Pinkner neglected to give away any major spoilers, but did mention that another film in the franchise is in the works. “I can’t say anything other than that it is happening,” he explained. After noting that he would not be writing the sequel, Pinkner also divulged that the second film will likely see the appearance of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker. “Without revealing anything that I’m not supposed to reveal, it is not impossible a future . . .[that] Spider-Man will play a significant role . . . I think it’s fair to say that everyone involved would be very excited by a Spider-Man/Venom movie.”

You can say that again. At the moment, Sony is already moving forward with plans to make Morbius, a vampire and frequent foe for Spider-Man, with Safe House director Daniel Espinosa at the helm and Jared Leto starring. On top of that, The Equalizer 2‘s Richard Wenk is writing a screenplay centering on the story of Kraven the Hunter, and the studio is making moves to develop scripts based on the characters of Silk (a Korean-American superheroine), Jackpot (an older, female masked vigilante), and Nightwatch (a doctor-turned-hero with powers of invisibility). There was also a Silver & Black film in the works, which would follow Silver Sable and Black Cat, but Sony has nixed that in favor of breaking each character out into a stand-alone film, starting with Black Cat, aka burglar Felicia Hardy.

18 Female Characters Who Got Us Through 2018

By | December 11, 2018

This year was hard, wasn’t it? We needed to take solace where we could. And for many of us here at POPSUGAR, that meant escaping the endlessly depressing, gut-wrenching, ever-harrowing news headlines by getting lost in some seriously great movies and TV shows, even just for a few moments. There’s only so much a face mask can fix, you know? (Even a really, really good face mask.)

Fortunately 2018 had no shortage of diverse, hilarious, heartbreaking, and brilliantly written female characters to inspire us to keep pushing through the bullsh*t (of which there was a lot, thanks to the current political climate). Whether you sought comfort in the arms of Midge Maisel’s arsenal of raunchy stand-up sets, or preferred to watch Shuri kick ass with her brains and fists, there’s a good chance your favorite character is on our list ahead.

Grab Your Super Suit, Because Incredibles 2 Is Coming to Netflix in January

By | December 11, 2018

The sequel to 2004’s The Incredibles, arrived nearly two decades later – and to much critical acclaim – when it exploded into theaters in June, renewing everyone’s love for the heroic Parr family. Now, because apparently Netflix is in a giving mood this holiday season, the spectacular animated film will be available to stream before you know it.

Netflix announced the exciting news via Instagram on Tuesday, noting that Incredibles 2 will arrive on its site on Jan. 30. This is incredible information for a number of reasons – Being able to watch Edna and Jack-Jack’s adventures anytime we want? Sign us up! – but it also comes hot on the heels of the news that Netflix will be losing Moana on Dec. 20. A crushing blow to families everywhere, to say the least.

Since Disney is rolling out its own streaming site in 2019, we only have a limited time to watch the studio’s films on Netflix, but fortunately, seeing Helen, Bob, Violet, and the rest of the gang take on evil-doers should be enough to ease the pain. Make sure you squeeze in some rewatches while you still can!

Comedy Queen Carol Burnett Will Receive a Very Special Golden Globe Award

By | December 11, 2018

It’s only fitting that the inaugural winner of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s brand new Carol Burnett Award is Carol Burnett herself.

The comedy veteran, actress, singer, and writer has been keeping the world entertained for seven decades now, but she’s perhaps best known for her groundbreaking work on her CBS variety show, The Carol Burnett Show (she was the first woman to host such a program, FYI). Now she’ll be honored for her contributions to television with a special new award at the 2019 Golden Globes ceremony when it takes place on Jan. 6.

“For more than 50 years, comedy trailblazer Carol Burnett has been breaking barriers while making us laugh,” said HFPA President Meher Tatna. “She was the first woman to host a variety sketch show, The Carol Burnett Show. She was also the first woman to win both the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and Kennedy Center Honors. And now we add another first to her running list: the first recipient – and namesake – of the new Golden Globe top honor for achievement in television, the Carol Burnett Award. We are profoundly grateful for her contributions to the entertainment industry and honored to celebrate her legacy forever at the Golden Globes.”

The Carol Burnett Award will function as the TV version of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which honors an individual for notable achievements in film (past Cecil B. DeMille honorees include Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Steven Spielberg, and more). Now let’s all prepare ourselves for what’s sure to be a memorable acceptance speech!

All Your Internet Boyfriends Smolder Through the Action-Packed Trailer For Triple Frontier

By | December 9, 2018

Netflix did us all a solid by combining all of your internet boyfriends in one convenient place: Triple Frontier. The star-studded action film features Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac, Pedro Pascal, Ben Affleck, and Garrett Hedlund – was Rami Malek not available, or what? – and now our first official look at what they’ve been up to while filming shirtless in Hawaii has arrived.

Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor directs the movie, which follows a group of former Special Forces operatives who reunite in South America to pull off an epic cash heist to cripple one of the world’s most violent cartels. Of course, things don’t go according to plan (duh), and the men are forced to fight for survival while protecting not only themselves, but their country.

Watch the trailer above before Triple Frontier starts streaming in March 2019.

Stranger Things Just Revealed the Episode Titles For Season 3, So Start Theorizing

By | December 9, 2018

The wait for the third season of Stranger Things has felt like an eternity since we binged season two back in October 2017. And since we still have quite a while until it returns – Netflix has only revealed that it will drop in 2019, so far – that wait has gotten even more unbearable. Thankfully the Duffer Brothers just threw us all a bone in the form of season three’s episode titles.

On Dec. 9, Netflix teased the titles for each of the season’s eight episodes on YouTube, noting that “In the Summer of 1985, the adventure continues . . .” Some of the episode names are ominous, to say the least – “The Bite,” “The Source,” and “The Case of the Missing Lifeguard” – while others seem a bit more fun (“The Mall Rats,” which is likely a nod to Steve’s new job at the recently constructed mall in Hawkins).

Scroll through them all ahead, and once you’re done, check out why fans suspect season three might be the show’s last.

Exclusive: Steve Carell and Leslie Mann Bond in Sweet Welcome to Marwen Clip

By | December 7, 2018

The first trailer for Steve Carell‘s upcoming film Welcome to Marwen came out this Summer, and we’ve been intrigued ever since. The movie, directed by Robert Zemeckis and based on Jeff Malmberg’s award-winning 2010 documentary, Marwencol, sees Carell playing the real-life Mark Hogancamp, a man who was beaten into a coma and spent 40 days in the hospital. After the attack left him with brain damage and PTSD, Hogancamp immersed himself in an intricate world of World War II-era miniatures as a form of art therapy.

In our exclusive clip from the movie, you see how Zemeckis mashes both worlds together – Hogancamp’s fictional, tiny town of Marwen and his actual reality – when Carell’s Mark bonds with his new neighbor, Nicol (Leslie Mann). Welcome to Marwen also stars Diane Kruger, Merritt Wever, Janelle Monáe, Eiza González, and Gwendolyn Christie, and it hits theaters on Dec. 21.
