You know his voice. As the lights dim leisurely, as you reach for your second handful of perfectly salted popcorn, as you are beseeched, repeatedly, to please silence your phones – you hear his familiar intonations greet your ears hello. And yet, why is the narrator always a he? The trailer for Lake Bell’s In A World... is finally out (we’ve been excited about this for a while; refer back to 10 Must-See Lady-Friendly Summer Flicks)! The movie, which the multitalented Bell wrote and directed, explores why film preview...
Want to keep rape fantasies off the radio? Don't tell Tyler, the Creator, unless you're ready to be called a "fucking whore dyke." That's the message he's broadcasting to the world lately. After an Australian woman named Talitha Stone criticized the rapper for rhyming about his hateful, necrophilia-inspired rape fantasies, Tyler and a slew of his fans verbally attacked and threatened her.

Especially when it comes to your TV shows (hello Downton Abbey).  But it looks like America may have rubbed off on the BBC in their new series for BBC America, Copper. "1865, New York.
