The horror genre has been in an exciting renaissance for years, to the delight of moviegoers. And while a variety of original projects have hit theaters, we’ve also seen the return of franchises like Halloween, Child’s Play, and Scream. This trend will continue with Spiral, which is a spinoff on the ultra gory Saw films. The delayed movie is produced by and starring Chris Rock, and it turns out that his pitch was actually influenced by an iconic thriller: David Fincher’s Se7en. And now I’m even more excited for the horror flick.
For example, Blinding Fast’s son is a character named Slo-Mo, played by Dylan Henry. Slo-Mo has the opposite ability as his father as he’s super slow, so his character growth at the end of the movie is that he moves much faster. This isn’t the case for all of the parents and children (Wild Card, played by Nathan Blair, has random, uncontrollable abilities, while his father, Tech-No, played by Christian Slater, has technology powers), but it is the case for the most part. So, it made me wonder, what is the connection between Invisi Girl and Noodles then, and the ultimate answer is this—they both have curly hair!

ORIGINAL STORY: January 4, 2021—
The Bachelor contestants for Matt James’s season are all iconic. I already know this from the bios ABC dropped in late 2020. One woman lists her job as “queen.” Another is a professional ballerina. And one woman, according to this tweet, is perhaps the greatest human who’s ever walked the face of the earth. I can’t wait to get to know them more—and see which ones go the distance on James’s season.
As for what he’s looking for, James told Good Morning America back in June 2020 it’s someone who’s “selfless, honest, caring, compassionate—qualities found in women all shapes and sizes.” And he wants kids too. “I think the grandkid counter for my mom started when the [Bachelor] announcement was made,” James told People. “She wants a basketball team. I’ll have a minivan, as many as we can fit.”
Matt James, of course, will make history as ABC’s first Black Bachelor. “I feel a load of responsibility,” James admits on the show’s premiere, according to People. “But in that, I feel like my experience isn’t everyone’s experience. I can only go and speak on things that I’ve experienced and live out my truths and do the best I can to represent who I am and how I was raised.”
So let’s get to know the contenders a bit more, shall we? Below, all 32 Bachelor contestants vying for Matt James’s heart this season:
New York City
Costa Mesa, California
Newport Beach, California
New York City
Durham, North Carolina
New York City
Studio City, California
Happy Valley, Oregon

If you’ve been looking really, really, really closely, you may have noticed the blue blob make a blink-and-miss cameo in the Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer in late 2019. The Toy Book also previously revealed a first look at the new Ghostbusters ghost with an early glimpse at the toy line being rolled out for the Sony film. But now we have our look at him, and while he’s definitely strange looking, I love him already.
The desperately optimistic among us foretold that 2021 would be as good as 2020 was bad. If the best new books in January are any kind of sign, then the future is bright—this year is going to be beautiful.
These are the kind of books that you can read on your couch with just a steaming mug and a good-smelling candle and feel transported. Every party you missed, every vacation you gave up, every adventure that you’re dreaming of, seem miraculously captured between their pages. We’re still waiting to see what 2021 becomes, and what becomes of us—who we’ll be, when the history that has happened to us finally recedes. As we wait, the unspeakable pleasure of a good hardcover in our hands with a compelling story on its pages will take us from the cold, dark days of winter into the welcoming warmth of spring.
Here are just a few of the best new books in January, for escapism, for learning, for using literature as a tool for survival:

Each Harry Potter alum has their own relationship with the franchise, especially as the years allow for some separation from the Wizarding World. Matthew Lewis isn’t the only actor to shy away from re-watching the movies, although his reasoning is certainly unique. Being an actor requires performers to immerse themselves and become someone else, while Neville is seemingly an accurate depiction of who Lewis was at the time of filming.

Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is officially upon us, thanks to the release of WandaVision on Disney+. Fans are also eager to see upcoming movie installments, including Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Actor Simu Liu is playing the title character, marking the first lead Asian character of the MCU. And it turns out that trying on Shang-Chi’s mysterious superhero costume was an emotional experience.
As we rapidly approach the one-year mark since the world shut down and many of us, celebs included, took a quarantine hiatus, there are plenty of lessons that have been learned. For some celebrities, these lessons have played out in the spotlight, as celebs like Alexandra Daddario have admitted they’ve given up on niceties like pants completely. And while Knives Out and Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis didn’t intentionally go the pants-free route in quarantine, she did recently reveal she tried to get a little dressed up for the inauguration this week. Turns out, that was a mistake.
A new website dedicated to Monarch, the human organization that studies the massive kaiju in the current film franchise, has gone live, and while the site itself is incredibly simple, it should get fans pumped for the upcoming movie. The site looks like any other professional website with a home page asking guests to enter to learn more about the Monarch organization. However, once you click “Enter” the page goes into an alert mode, a klaxon begins to sound and the following image is splashed across the page.
In recent years, Black Adam’s Aldis Hodge has been a rising star in film and television. His roles have increased in prominence as he moved from project to project. Hodge’s most high-profile role to date was being tapped to play the iconic DC Comics character Hawkman in the DC film Black Adam alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The actor spoke on how The Rock has already inspired his version of Hawkman.
