I asked Max Landis, writer of American Ultra and Chronicle, to talk about himself over a lunch filled with stories, pitches, BFF cameos, stranger tattoos, and his ideas for Fantastic Four, Chronicle 2, and American Ultra 2 that you'll never see.

Congrats! You directed a VMA-nominated music video. MTV wants to charge you $800 to attend the show. 
Not every nominee is a Taylor or a Nicki or a Kanye. Non-celebrity music video directors are getting charged as much as $800 to attend an awards show about their work.

Marvel came strong to D23 with four minute of Captain America: Civil War action. And drones. And frenemies. Solid stuff. 
It's Avengers vs. Avengers in the first sizzle reel for Marvel's next epic, revealed at Disney's D23 Expo.

If you love Mad Max and post-apocalyptic dystopias and BMX bandits and robots, you'll love Turbo Kid.

Ice Cube on cops' need to "win," NWA's breakup, and the villains of Straight Outta Compton, Suge Knight and Jerry Heller.

My Fantastic Four review, with a recap of the even more dramatic behind the scenes schadenfreude.

Johnny Knoxville paid tribute to his stunt idol Evel Knievel in 2007 in a bike trick that went horribly, horribly wrong. Now he's come full circle producing the documentary Being Evel, about America's original stunt-crazy superstar.

We've reached peak beef
Zayn Malik slammed Swift over her anti-Spotify stance, so beau Calvin Harris rushed to her defense. Then things got even more childish and nasty. These people have too much money.

STAR WARS DISNEYLAND Y'ALL
Along with a ton of ‘Star Wars’ movie news at D23, including that ‘Jurassic World’ director Colin Trevorrow will be helming ‘Star Wars: Episode IX.’

DJ Yella went from NWA to XXX and is now coming back to music. We talked about Straight Outta Compton, his last call with Eazy-E, and why he dove into (and left) the porn world.

A loving look at the karate master from Japan who came to America, taught Bruce Lee nunchaku, mentored Steven Seagal, and inspired Pat Morita's iconic Karate Kid character.
