You Can See ‘Sing’ for Free on Thanksgiving Weekend, Courtesy of AMC Theatres

Here’s the thing: After this election, many of you will undoubtedly endure awkward and possibly contentious Thanksgiving dinners with your families. And after that, some of you will get up before the sun rises the next day to participate (either willingly or as the reluctant hostage of a loved one) in the harrowing tradition known as Black Friday. By Saturday, you will find yourself in dire need of a reminder that there is still joy in this world. Lucky for you, AMC Theatres and Universal have your back with free screenings of Sing.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Working on a Secret Animated Film for Disney

Over the past year or so, Lin-Manuel Miranda has gone from Broadway sensation to Disney darling, lending his songwriting skills to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and signing on to star opposite Emily Blunt in the new Mary Poppins sequel — and that’s only half of it. According to Miranda, his role at Disney is rapidly expanding, and the latest project on his growing to-do list is a secret animated film with Zootopia co-director Byron Howard.

Natalie Portman Makes Funeral Arrangements in the New ‘Jackie’ Trailer

Among the usual biopics and awards season fare, Jackie has emerged as an intriguing contender — an atypical biopic about one of America’s most famous tragedies, told from the perspective of our most iconic First Lady, and directed by a Chilean filmmaker (who has not one, but two biopics hitting theaters this December). Following its premiere at TIFF in September, Jackie immediately became one of our most anticipated films of this awards season, and this new trailer isn’t making us any less patient for its release.

That Furby Toy Is Getting Its Own Movie Because Surely the End Is Nigh

Trolls. Ouija. Battleship. G.I. Joe. My Little Pony. LEGOs — okay, well, that last one really defied expectations, but overall, movies based on beloved classic toys are a real crapshoot. And that’s exactly how Bob Weinstein describes his plan to make a live-action / CGI hybrid movie based on Furby. “I’m rolling the dice and playing for hits,” Weinstein said at the American Film Market before revealing that the “Dimension” part of TWC-Dimension is actually a gaping void to look upon with great uncertainty and existential dread, a place where the realm of man is reflected in infinite emptiness — or so Werner Herzog might say.

New ‘Moana’ Clip Features a Braggadocious Dwayne Johnson Singing a Lin-Manuel Miranda Tune

What’s the opposite of a humble brag? Just a regular obnoxious brag? That’s pretty much the point of “You’re Welcome,” a song performed by Dwayne Johnson in this new clip from Disney’s Moana. The scene features Johnson’s character, a charismatic demi-god named Maui, singing at the titular hero about his many accomplishments for which she should be grateful. As Danny McBride’s character on Vice Principals might say, it’s very braggadocious.

New ‘Willy Wonka’ Prequel Will Challenge Your Belief in a World of Pure Imagination

Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory may be a world of pure imagination where the sky is the limit and anything is possible, but it’s hard to say the same about major studios, which keep returning to the same well of established franchises (including board games and toys) to cash-in on name recognition — why risk millions on an original, inventive idea when they can just repurpose a tried-and-true classic? Such is the case with good ol’ Willy Wonka, who is returning to the big screen in a new prequel film from the producer of the Harry Potter series.

Surprise! Michael Moore Made a Secret Donald Trump Movie, and It Opens This Week

With Where to Invade Next, audiences saw a different, more optimistic side of Michael Moore. It was a fairly fun movie — at least in comparison to Moore’s other films, which are typically a bit pessimistic about American politics. If you thought the outspoken documentarian might sustain that positive attitude for his next film, you were mistaken. Moore’s latest project is a documentary he’s been working on in secret, and it’s all about this election year’s most controversial candidate: Donald Trump.

‘Bad Moms’ to Get ‘Bad Dads’ Spinoff, aka Every Other Comedy Ever Made

Looks like the studio behind Bad Moms is creeping in on Wes Anderson’s territory: STX Entertainment is reportedly developing a spinoff to this summer’s hit comedy, this time focusing on not-so-great dads. Let’s be honest, though — Bad Dads could describe Wes Anderson’s whole filmography (there’s even an Anderson art tribute show and book with that title), but it could also easily describe most studio comedies.

15 Big Changes ‘The Girl on the Train’ Made From Page to Screen

A year before Paula Hawkins’ debut novel hit the stands, Universal secured the rights to what was sure to be the next ‘Gone Girl’ — a mystery thriller about three women and the disappearance that ties them together. Sure enough, ‘The Girl on the Train’ became a bestseller, and the film adaptation, which stars Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson and Justin Theroux, hits theaters this weekend. As is typically the case, there are some notable differences between the book and film, but just how many changes were made from page to screen?
