Decide Who Will Be Next Drake with 'Degrassi: Next Class' Trailer


Like a teen melodrama actor shot and reborn as a strangely dancing rapper, Degrassi has risen again from cancelation to become a Netflix series. With MTV Canada and TeenNick dropping Degrassi: The Next Generation, now Canada's perennial after-school special has found its latest revival on the streaming service as Degrassi: Next Class. Here's the new trailer, revealing the new cast, the new meaningless high school theatrics, and this above scene where apparently some kid gets taken out by a SWAT team. By these estimates, we're now just a generation away from Degrassi finally having its first demon possession.

Ice Cube Returns to Salon Industry in 'Barbershop: The Next Cut' Trailer


Wondering whether Ice Cube's barbershop has yet been gentrified into an artisanal donut place? Well, here's your answer with the trailer for Barbershop: The Next Cut. In short, though: no, the barbershop is still around, but times have been better. Gangs and shootings plague his South Side, Chicago neighborhood--which is a real concern for Cube, as he has chipped off some teenage Cubelets of his own. Also, apparently the hair industry is in such a shape that he's been forced to merge with the ladies' salon, creating a hilarious hotbed of gender politics.

Still, despite all that, Cube sure has a solid workforce and customer base. This latest sequel sees a cast of returning and new stars that impressively includes Cedric the Entertainer, Regina Hall, Anthony Anderson, Eve, JB Smoove, Lamorne Morris, Sean Patrick Thomas, Tyga, Deon Cole, Common, and Nicki Minaj. Considering how prior films had the likes of Queen Latifah, Kenan Thompson, and Keith David, by the time we get to Barbershop: The Final Cut, this franchise is going to be for African-American supporting comic actors what Harry Potter was for white British thespians. Which is to say, if Brandon T. Jackson doesn't squeeze into the next one, he should be as rightly pissed as Judi Dench.

'Fantastic Four' Sequel Removed from Fox Release Schedule


Officially getting around to doing what everyone else did as soon as they saw the new Fantastic Four, 20th Century Fox has reportedly dropped the Fantastic Four sequel from their schedule. Why did it have a release date to begin with? Good question! It's because the studio set that back in March, months before Fant4stic hit theaters, when they were still naïve to just how much enthusiastic disinterest their film would inspire. It's not clear whether this is related to rumors of their passing the superhero property back to Marvel, or if this merely Fox needing more time to figure out how to better make a deplorable Fantastic Four film.

Chris Hemsworth Now a Lean Hobo Thanks to 'In the Heart of the Sea'


It looks like Chris Hemsworth is joining Christian Bale, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Hanks and others among the elite group of actors who can brag about all the weight they lost for a role. Hemsworth on Sunday revealed that his physique is a now a far cry from the huge build we're used to him having as Thor or, you know, as a hacker. Now he's down to merely looking like an underwear model, not like an actual God, and it's thanks to In the Heart of the Sea, Ron Howard's whaling movie that arrives next month.

Behold, a Thor deflated:

New 'Game of Thrones' Promo Art Promises J. Snow Will See Ya in April


Remember when Game of Thrones promo art was just, like, here's a bird and it's made of swords or something? Well, it's nothing so cryptic this time around. That's MFin' Jon Snow. And despite everything that's happened to him, he seems to be sort of upright! I mean, it's possible he's just being propped up in some sort of Weekend at Bastard's scenario, but still: more hope than most characters on the show have, yeah?
