The Losers Face The Clown in Latest IT Trailer

Here’s the new the trailer for the horror event of the year, IT! Hot damn! This is going to blow up at the box office! This trailer perfectly captures the tone and terror of King’s novel, in a way that we so infrequently see.

Seeing Trump’s America in Sidney Lumet’s Network

A few weeks ago, we posed a question to the Audiences Everywhere staff: What movie best represents your understanding of America and your experience as an American?

Lupita Nyong’o Goes Undercover at SDCC

Look! A spark of joy! It’s no secret Lupita Nyong’o  was at SDCC this year promoting Black Panther. But she also secretly blessed fans with her presence at San Diego Comic-Con in a fabulously sparkly pink Power Ranger disguise/cosplay. She danced her way through the crowd, chatting and posing with unknowing patrons and just generally had an amazing time, as everybody should at Comic-Con. This amateur cosplayer wholeheartedly approves, and also wonders, who else has been hiding right under our noses dressed as Stormtroopers or Spiderman? Today she revealed her secret in a tweet, along with a montage of...
