Before they could all legally drive, the Jonas Brothers could stop traffic. In Chasing Happiness—the documentary that, in a bit of spectacularly on-the-nose cross-promotion, accompanies the release of their first album in nearly a decade, Happiness Begins—the brothers recount a time in 2007 when they had to be air-lifted to a performance at the Texas…

Remember Danny Torrance? The little boy from Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic The Shining, based on the eponymous Stephen King novel, whose dad (Jack Nicholson) goes nuts during a stay at the Overlook Hotel? Well, he’s ready to be haunted all over again in a newly released trailer for Doctor Sleep, a follow-up to King’s…
Danny Boyle’s latest film, Yesterday, makes pleasure feel guilty, but it’s not a guilty pleasure.
