‘Don’t Look Up’ Will Have Meryl Streep Playing the President, Because of Course

Adam McKay‘s Don’t Look Up has a huge, impressive cast, including Meryl Streep.

Listen to Meryl Streep Rap in Ryan Murphy’s ‘The Prom’, and Despair

It’s been a very rough year. We’re almost at the end, folks, but if you thought we were going to make it to 2021 without having to hear Meryl Streep rap, you were sorely mistaken. Streep is one of the cast members of The Prom, Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Chad Beguelin, Bob Martin, and Matthew Sklar‘s award-winning, Tony-nominated Broadway musical, and as is par for the course with most stage-to-screen adaptations, there’s a new original song not featured in the Broadway production.

HBO Max Spot Showcases New Footage From Steven Soderberg’s ‘Let Them All Talk’, Ridley Scott’s ‘Raised By Wolves’, and More

HBO Max had a somewhat botched debut thanks to confusion about WarnerMedia’s brands and which customers got the new streaming service for free and which ones needed to pay to subscribe. But the good news with setting the bar low at the start is that it should be easy for things to improve from here. Today, WarnerMedia released a new commercial promoting several big upcoming releases from HBO and HBO Max, and the spot features footage from Steven Soderbergh‘s new movie Let Them All Talk, the Rid...

Movie Flashback: “Sophie’s Choice”

Today, we take Meryl Streep’s brilliance as an actress for granted. We’ve seen so many magical performances through the years. Still, one can’t help but be blown away by Streep’s Oscar-winning performance in this film. From the review in the New York Times: Meryl Streep has already established herself as a performer of that caliber, but nothing in her earlier work fully anticipates ”Sophie’s Choice.” In Alan J.
