Jordan Peele Crosses Over into The Twilight Zone

The woman in the black-and-white program on the flat-screen TV was teetering on the brink of madness, delivering a disjointed monologue about parallel worlds and the possibility that our own physical duplicates might walk among us. As the camera hovered above her troubled face and the decades-old audio crackled with the sound of a persistent rainstorm, Jordan Peele sat captivated on a nearby couch. “Beautiful shot,” he said with quiet awe.

Here in his personal office, Peele, the celebrated comedian turned Academy Award-winning horror filmmaker, was watching an old episode of “The Twilight Zone,” the classic science-fiction anthology series that he is helping to revive.

Adele Confirms "30" Album is Coming!

Adele turned 31 Sunday (May 5) and marked the occasion with a heartfelt note addressing self-love and new music. She also took a cheeky dig at fans who used the recent news of her split from husband Simon Konecki as reason to celebrate and look forward to new breakup songs.

"This is 31 ... thank f---ing god. 30 tried me so hard but I'm owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. No matter how long we're here for life is constant and complicated at times," Adele wrote on Instagram. "I've changed drastically in the last couple years and I'm still changing and that's okay. 31 is going to be a big ol' year and I'm going to spend it all on myself."

"Be kind to yourself people we're only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I've only just realized that that is more than enough," she continued, joking, "I'll learn to love you lot eventually."

"Into the Spider-Verse" Director Teases the Return of a Major Villain

Last year’s release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a huge success. It put Sony back on the map with its Marvel franchise, while at the same time giving its animation department a huge boost, and there’s no question that there’s a sequel on the way, but there’s a big shock about who could come back.

In Spider-Verse, we were introduced to Olivia Octavius, also known as Doc Ock in Miles Morales’ dimension. She becomes a thorn in the heroes’ side over the course of the film, but met a somewhat surprising end in the finale. As she attempts to take on the heroes in a final battle, she suddenly ends up hit by a flying truck.

However, a new hint provided by co-director Rodney Rothman suggests that we haven’t seen the last of her. Speaking with Total Film, Rothman explained that “Liv,” as her friends call her, could easily return.

“In the end, we found the movie played fine without us tagging every single possible thing,” he said. “But we definitely think of Liv as someone who is not gone from the story, and who in many ways, is our most powerful bad guy. She’s manipulating a lot of things to achieve her own grand ambitions.”
