The DC Extended Universe is an ever growing place, and there are a slew of highly anticipated movies coming down the pipeline. Chief among the is James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, which will be a reboot/sequel to David Ayer’s original 2017 movie. Gunn assembled a massive, star-studded cast to bring the story to life, featuring a handful of returning characters. Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang will be back, although he recently admitted to missing some of the group that won’t appear in The Suicide Squad.
It’s certainly not good news that a small cameo in Hubie Halloween ended up costing Alaina Pinto her job. However, in the terms that she laid out above, the cause for termination is something that unfortunately the world is not privy to. Coming down to contract clauses that were accidentally violated, it’s not like Pinto was let go from her post because she merely decided to be in the wrong movie. Though, if we’re being honest, her cameo does serve one of the funniest running gags present in Hubie Halloween.
One standout example of a difference between the film and reality is in regards to the courtroom treatment of defendant Bobby Seale. Believe it or not, as horrible as the events depicted in the movie are, Seale’s treatment was even worse in real life.
In Aaron Sorkin’s version of events, Seale is severed from the case against the Chicago 7 just minutes after being chained to a chair and gagged, but things didn’t play out that quickly in the real case. Seale actually spent multiple days sitting in court in those restraints before William Kunstler’s pleas against it were heard. Judge Hoffman also tried to sentence the Black Panther co-founder to four years in prison for contempt of court, but that was overruled on appeal.
All that being said, The Trial Of The Chicago 7 might not be a perfect representation of history, but for the most part it is accurate. Some of the more outlandish details, such as Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin arriving to court in police uniforms cloaked in judges robes, are taken straight from the true story, as is the key portion of the film where former Attorney General Ramsey Clark is forbidden from providing testimony in front of a jury.
If you don’t want to wait for the home release of Antebellum both digitally and on physical formats like Blu-ray and DVD, and you don’t mind paying a premium, you can watch the horror flick starring Janelle Monáe as a modern-day sociologist who finds herself trapped on a 19th-Century slave plantation in the heart of Louisiana, and there are plenty of options.
Released on September 18, 2020 as premium video on demand, Antebellum is currently available for $19.99 on platforms like Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, and Redbox on Demand. Please note, while you have 30 days to start the movie, the rental expires within 48 hours of hitting play.
The titles namedropped by Phylicia Rashad, Mamoudou Athie, Sydney Sweeney, Madison Iseman, Sarita Choudhury, Sunita Mani, and Omar Maskati are certainly eclectic, ranging from brilliant classics, to obscure ‘90s films, to modern hits. And we’ll even give honesty credit to The Lie stars Mireille Enos and Joey King for admitting that they aren’t the biggest fans of movies that set out with the intent of freaking out the audience. It’s admittedly a bit funny that they star together in a horror movie, but that just makes their honesty more charming.
Upon rewatching early classics of Disney films, viewers may be caught off guard by The Aristocats’ caricature of East Asian people through The Siamese Song, or Peter Pan’s stereotypical depiction of Native American people. In response, Disney has now added the following content warning that will appear before each of their culturally insensitive films:
Of course, given the current health crisis, plans for film and TV productions can be tossed aside in an instance these days. Right now things might be shaping up for Thor: Love and Thunder to begin principal photography in Australia (which is also where Thor: Ragnarok was shot) come March, but maybe filming will need to be pushed back due to extenuating circumstances.
Where Can You Watch Cats Streaming If You Don’t Have HBO Max?
So, you don’t have an HBO Max account (or friends with someone lets you use their login) but still want to watch Cats? Well, if you want to fork over some cash then I have some good news for you. If you want to go the purchasing route, then Amazon is probably your best bet. The platform has both high-definition and standard-definition versions of the musical available, but services like Vudu, Redbox On Demand, YouTube, and countless others also have Cats available for purchase if you avoid Amazon.
Oddly enough, there aren’t any rental options for Cats at this time, so either commit to the full-price purchase or sign up for HBO Max if you want to join in on all the fun.
Kelly Marie Tran is joined by some iconic Star Wars talent for Disney+’s upcoming holiday special, including Billy Dee Williams and Anthony Daniels who are playing Lando and C-3PO respectively.

According to the same report, Brad Pitt is hoping for an even 50/50 split of custody after the holidays are over. But Angelina Jolie reportedly isn’t too keen to this idea, especially as she wants the children to be based and schooled outside of Los Angeles. Considering how often Pitt is needed in the city due to his busy career as an actor, it makes sense that the divorce proceedings would eventually land the former couple in court.
