Blake Shelton was just crowned People’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” a choice which left a lot of folks scratching their heads.

Among them, former “Sexiest Man Alive” Ryan Reynolds, who informed another former title holder, Hugh Jackman, that Sir Patrick Stewart is really the sexiest man on the planet.

Stewart obliged by sharing a photo of him rocking a leather vest (settle down — and a T-shirt) on the cover of an old TV Guide cover, saying “Gentlemen, come at me when you are THIS sexy.”

Meanwhile, Shelton has been reacting with good humor to all the slams against his new “sexy” status, reading mean tweets like “Blake Shelton isn’t even the sexiest man at this Waffle House.”

MoviePass Just Dropped Its Price Again

MoviePass just dropped its already low monthly fee of $10, which means a monthly subscription costs less than the average price for one movie ticket.

Although the site promises you’ll pay $6.95 per month, according to The Wrap, by the time you add in fees, it works out to $7.50 a month. Which is still a fantastic deal. The current average price for a movie ticket, according to National Association of Theater Owners, is $8.93 nationwide.

The annual fee for MoviePass is $89.95. After your first year is up, the site says, “your plan will convert back into your $9.95 a month.” Conditions apply, of course. MoviePass promises: “Offer valid until it’s not.” Also, “Limit two per household.”

“This limited time offer is great for movie-lovers. At $6.95 per month, it’s hard to compare it to anything else that provides as much entertainment for a full year,” Mitch Lowe, CEO of MoviePass, said in a statement. “We are entering the prime movie going season, so now is the perfect time to take advantage of the MoviePass movement.”

Existing MoviePass customers will save 25 percent from their current $9.95 per month plan if they subscribe to the new plan.

Exhibitors aren’t happy about the low, low MoviePass pricing, but many seem to think the low prices — and maybe even the company itself — won’t last, according to The Wrap.

Comics on Film: ‘Justice League’ Is Gleeful, Beautiful Mayhem

It was right around the halfway point during a preliminary fight between our heroes and the film’s antagonist that it really began to sink in: this movie is a blast to watch.

Coming off of a legendary and arduously troubled production that seemed to have just as many twists and turns behind the camera as it does in front of it, a lot of people in both the circles of fans and of critics seemed to already make up their minds about Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Films’ ambitious team-up film, Justice League, quite a while ago. And really, who could blame them? In addition to having to change directors and composers on top of an extensive schedule of reshoots and creative patches, the film being good was quite a longshot.

Sometimes, though, some perceived plotholes…

In Eerie ‘A Quiet Place’ Trailer, Making a Sound Might Get You Killed

Thumbnail for 194370

In the unsettling first trailer for the horror film “A Quiet Place,” a family lives in complete silence, because “if they can’t hear you, they can’t hunt you.”

Real-life couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski team up for their first film together, in which the play husband and wife leading a nearly silent existence at an isolated farmhouse in the woods. (Never a safe location in horror movies.)

The family communicates only via sign language, but when their son (Noah Jupe) knocks over a lantern, they’re terrified to hear loud thumps on their roof. They seem to have an elaborate alarm system set up, because when Krasinski looks out the window, a red light goes on, signalling that something is indeed out there.

“Wonderstruck” breakout actress Millicent Simmonds, who is deaf in real life, plays their daughter.

Krasinski directs the film, which was written by Scott Beck and Bryan Woods.

The movie opens April 6, 2018.

There’s an ongoing joke about how James Franco has found a way to duplicate himself. That’s how he’s able to work on so many projects. His recent stint on the HBO series The Deuce allowed for the joke to seem to be truth. On the show, he acts opposite himself, playing twin brothers. Now it’s even further being played with in the announceent (via Deadline) that Franco will star in an X-Men spin-off about the Marvel Comics character Multiple Man.

Jamie Madrox is the mutant superhero’s real name. He was born with the gift and hardship of duplication. Basically, he can create many clones of himself, which comes in handy when you need an army-sized team to defeat a villain. In the comics, Multiple Man became best known as a member of X-Factor in…
