2 minutes ago Because if anyone is likely to accidentally leak Avengers: Endgame online ... it's Mark Ruffalo. But also "Spoiler-Man" Tom Holland. Holland has such a bad reputation for leaking Marvel spoilers that even he was fooled by a fake headline claiming he uploaded the entire Avengers 4 movie online. How would he even do that? The movie is currently in reshoots and not available to be uploaded. And who would ever give Tom Holland an upload for the movie on his best day?

Holland has shared Marvel spoilers before -- sometimes stopped at the right time by Benedict Cumberbatch -- and he even managed to spoil the script for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to Chris Pratt, … [Read more...] about Even Tom Holland Believed A Spoof Article Saying He Leaked Avengers 4 Online

3 minutes ago Netflix, we love you, but this is so very true. The Crown star Claire Foy hosted Saturday Night Live last night and took some loving shots at her show's streaming service in the "Netflix Commercial" sketch. The bit mocks Netflix's seemingly endless scroll of movies and TV shows -- so many, even the execs haven't seen them all -- with series like Kennymeade Depot lasting for three seasons even though only one woman watches. Check it out: How is Netflix doing it? They buy everything! Yes, the SNL commercial jokes that Netflix is even buying content from itself -- including giving Claire Foy's queen a new role: Gotta love that "pitch meeting" for new series: Honestly, some of the fake shows in the sketch might even be worth adding to My List.
