Friends make everything more fun in 80 for Brady featurette

When asked to describe 80 for Brady, Billy Porter calls it “Bridesmaids meets Golden Girls.” With four iconic actresses headlining the film, Porter’s comparison hits the nail on the head.

The movie follows four friends: Lou (Grace and Frankie’s Lily Tomlin), Trish (Book Club’s Jane Fonda), Maura (West Side Story’s Rita Moreno), and Betty (Lincoln’s Sally Field). These four women love and adore their hero, quarterback Tom Brady. When Brady and the New England Patriots earn a spot in Super Bowl LI, the four friends win tickets to the game and set out on a road trip adventure to watch their idol win football’s most prized possession.

“This weekend is more than they ever could have conceived of,” says Field. “It just brings them together. They just rely on one another,” adds Tomlin.

Brady will star as himself and produce under his 199 Productions company. The cast will feature appearances by Rob Corddry, Alex Moffat, Guy Fieri, Harry Hamlin, Bob Balaban, Glynn Turman, Jimmy O. Yang, Matt Lauria, Sally Kirkland, Sara Gilbert, and Alex Bentley. Some of Brady’s former Patriots teammates — Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, and Rob Gronkowski — will make cameo appearances as themselves.

The film is directed by Kyle Marvin (WeCrashed) from a script written by Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern (Booksmart). It’s inspired by the true story of Brady leading the Patriots back from a 28-3 deficit to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime of Super Bowl LI. At the time of the victory, it was Brady’s fifth Super Bowl victory and fourth Super Bowl MVP.

Kevin Costner in Yellowstone.

Kevin Costner recently unveiled the first look at his upcoming multipart Western Horizon: An American Saga. However, for the vast majority of Yellowstone fans, the only saga they want is the conclusion of the Dutton family's story and a glimpse of what comes next. Costner reinvigorated his career by headlining Yellowstone as John Dutton, but his clashes with Paramount Network and showrunner Taylor Sheridan have left Costner's future with the franchise in question.

Although we're still several months away from the return of the series, we're sharing everything we know about Yellowstone season 5, part 2. And we'll keep updating this post when anything newsworthy comes up.

Peacemaker promo featuring the show's main cast.

Peacemaker, the unexpected Max hit that premiered in early 2022 and surprised everyone with its irreverent humor and heartwarming approach, will return for a second season. Peacemaker (John Cena) is the breakout character from James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, and the show has taken the character to the next level and effectively turned what was a D-list DC villain into a bona fide star.

Although not much is known about Peacemaker season 2, one thing is for sure: Fans can expect more of the wacky, violent, and subversive humor that made the show's first season such a hit to begin with. Still, there have been a few tidbits about the show's status from Gunn, Cena, and others, so here's everything we know about the upcoming season of Peacemaker.

3 sci-fi movies on Hulu you need to watch in June
Karen Gillan and Aaron Paul and Karen Gillan in Dual.

Summer is getting off to a slow start on Hulu, at least in regard to sci-fi movies. There just aren't that many fresh options to watch this month, and two of them are already on this list. Hulu's third science fiction addition in June, The Day After Tomorrow, just wasn't good as Roland Emmerich's other signature sci-fi disaster film, Independence Day. That said, we would have preferred to save Independence Day as one of our picks for the best movies to watch on the Fourth of July.

Our remaining choices for the three sci-fi movies on Hulu that you have to watch in June include an indie flick starring Karen Gillan -- twice! -- and a sci-fi/fantasy comedy from the '80s.
