First Run Features has announced the premiere date for director Kirk Simon's documentary examining the 100-year history of the Pulitzer Prize.
"The Pulitzer at 100" will bow at Lincoln Plaza Cinema July 21 in New York City, with more cities to follow.
The film explores the effect the Pulitzers have had on the country's culture in the century since their inception by way of interviews with previous winners, including authors, journalists, playwrights and musicians, as well as The Times' own Mary McNamara, who won the 2015 Pulitzer for criticism. (She's featured at the start of the trailer above.)
It's Jackie Chan like you've never seen him before: in full-on dangerous dad form, out for justice in London against the terrorists who killed his daughter.
The new trailer for the upcoming action thriller "The Foreigner" teases a surprise for fans of the 63-year-old "Rumble in the Bronx" and "Rush Hour" star who has played countless upbeat heros over the course of an eclectic, five-decade career.
Sunday night's BET Awards weren't exactly a perfect viewing experience, but that doesn't mean the show didn't feature several moments of absolute perfection. Here are five moments even the most casual fans of music and pop culture can (and should) enjoy.
Twenty years ago today, British publisher Bloomsbury released J.K. Rowling's debut novel, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone," the first in the seven-book series about a boy wizard that went on to become a global phenomenon.
The outspoken billionaire author, who was living in relative poverty when she first completed her manuscript, took to Twitter on Monday to celebrate the milestone.
20 years ago today a world that I had lived in alone was suddenly open to others. It's been wonderful. Thank you.#HarryPotter20
MAD magazine is shaking things up. The 65-year-old humor and satire publication is getting a new editor -- the fifth in its history -- and relocating from New York City to Burbank.
Illustrator Bill Morrison will take the helm as executive editor of the DC Entertainment magazine, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"I don't know anyone who loves and respects MAD as much as I do," Morrison said in a statement to THR. "I'll definitely have my work cut out for me, but I'm dedicated to upholding the high standards of absurd and irreverent humor that the public has come to expect from MAD. I've been asked if I will continue to include artist Al Jaffee in the magazine; as soon as I find out who he is, I'll let everyone know,"
Twitter was not kind Sunday night during Leslie Jones' first gig as an awards show host -- specifically, the BET Awards in Los Angeles. But we thought she had strong moments, including this prerecorded bit where she meets her 1994 self behind a local Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles.
That's where she used to waitress while she was trying to make it as a comedian and when she appeared on BET's "Comic View."
Jones says she'd sometimes have Roscoe's customers who would recognize her from "Comic View," after which she'd acknowledge their praise but quickly follow up with "Breast and wing or leg and a thigh?"
Chicago's Chance the Rapper gave a fiery, seemingly off-the-cuff speech at the BET Awards on Sunday night in which he chastised the legal system, Chicago Public Schools and U.S. government.
Chance was receiving the gala's humanitarian award, an acknowledgement of the funds he has raised and donated for Chicago schools. When the artist born Chancelor Bennett took the stage at downtown's Microsoft Theater, he said he hadn't prepared a speech. Still, he rattled off a few talking points, all of them to rapturous applause.
He said he wanted to "tell everybody in this government that y'all need to let everybody out of jail for selling weed before y'all start making it legal," and then added, "I was going to tell the Chicago public school system to not take out a loan from Chase Bank when they know that our schools are planning on failing in our district."
The streaming service will not move forward with another season of the comedy, The Times has confirmed.
The series, which was helmed by "Pitch Perfect" screenwriter Kay Cannon and starred Britt Robertson, was an adaptation of Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso's memoir-self-help book that documented her rise from shoplifter to e-commerce fashion maven.
