Amazon picks New York, suburban Washington for new, split HQ: WSJ
Amazon has decided to split its new headquarters between New York City and a Washington suburb in Northern Virginia, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday night. An official announcement from the online retail giant is expected as early as Tuesday, the newspaper said, quoting people familiar with the issue. After a year-long search in which more than 200 cities wooed the web giant for the project -- and the treasure of jobs, development and tax revenue it will bring -- Amazon opted to divvy up its so-called HQ2 between the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens in New York and the Crystal City area of Arlington, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington.

Watch the First 'Pokemon: Detective Pikachu' Trailer; Here's Everything We Know
You weren't expecting that the first truly great video game movie would also be a Pokemon movie, did you? All signs point to the former being a possibility, with Warner Bros.' live-action adaptation of the Nintendo game Detective Pikachu, starring everyone's favorite snarky voice actor, Ryan Reynolds.  The first trailer for the upcoming movie (watch it down below) hints that, thanks to Reynolds voicing the title character, this is sort of going to be Deadpool for kids. But it promises an even more adorable hero and a plot that's closer to the old Looney Tunes classic One Froggy Evening crossed with Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Here's everything we know about Pokemon: Detective Pikachu so far: What is the movie about? Assuming you're asking where did...

In 'Widows,' Crime Gets a New Face; Here's Everything We Know
Crime thrillers offer audiences the opportunity to live vicariously through the heroes and villians portrayed on screen. Often those characters are brooding and brutal, manly men who have little time for the women in their lives; they are too busy planning spectacular crimes and scheming how they'll spend their ill-gotten gains. Widows flips the book, so to speak, smashing stereotypes and placing a strong group of women at the heart of an intense crime drama. The film has received very positive advance reviews ahead of its wide opening on November 9. Here's everything we know about Widows. What's it about? Set in present-day Chicago, Widows is "a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption," according to the...

Comic Book Legend Stan Lee, 95, Passes Away
Comic book writer, editor and publisher Stan Lee has passed away, according to The Hollywood Reporter and multiple other sources. He was 95 years old. It would be impossible to understate Lee's influence upon multiple generations of comic book readers and creators, as well as movie lovers and filmmakers. He has left a lasting mark on popular culture, thanks to the textured and beloved characters he created and/or developed, including Spider-Man, Black Panther, The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Ant-Man, The Mighty Thor and Iron Man. His characters were often superpowered, yet they were also recognizably human, dealing with issues in the real world and their own personal flaws. Lee played a lovely role (as himself) in Kevin Smith's Mallrats (1995), offering dating...

Final 'Overlord' Trailer Reveals Unexpected Wartime Terrors; Here's Everything We Know
  The first R-rated release from J.J. Abrams' production company Bad Robot, best known lately for surprise deliveries of Cloverfield movies, is Overlord, a film set during World War II. When we first heard about it, speculation ran rampant that it tied into the Cloverfield universe somehow, but instead it appears to be a completely stand-alone movie, albeit one with plenty of footage that justifies its rating.    The final trailer has now been released. It starts off like it's a normal World War II suspense drama. But soon enough, we see the real horror of Overlord, and it's not the usual wartime terrors.   Here's everything we know about the thriller. Watch the trailer(s) below.    What's the...
