But while watching the film was just traumatizing for us, it almost became life-threatening for the…

Cher Said ‘She’s Not A Big Cher Fan,’ Then Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts And Timothée Chalamet All Hilariously Gave Her A Pep…

Cher is of course a legend, in the world of music, movies, fashion and otherwise. Given her incredible track record across six decades, we certainly wouldn’t blame the artist if she had a big head over her body of work, but apparently that’s not the case. When the multi-hyphenate talent was recently asked about whether she goes back and listens to or watches her own artistry, she said “She’s not a big Cher fan,” and the host of big names sitting next to her we’re seriously not having it. When Cher guested on The Graham…

‘The Flash’ Deleted Scenes Add Tom Hanks and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ References to the Crossover Party

To say The Flash bombed at the box office is a bit of an understatement. The film cost around $200 million to make, and anywhere between $70 million and another $200 million to promote. Now, The Flash is leaving theaters with a worldwide haul of only $267.2 million as of July 16 — meaning it never broke even at the multiplex. Basically, Warner Bros. Discovery totally lost its shirt, and it’s hoping that Barbie can re-seam it as fast as possible. To incentivize people to buy The Flash on digital and 4K, director Andy…
