Daniel Craig Is Going to Wear Tom Ford in the Latest Bond Film, Spectre

If Daniel Craig looks a lot sharper than you'd expect a government spy to be in the upcoming James Bond film Spectre, it's because he's wearing Tom Ford. The brand announced today that it made some of the clothes Craig wears in the film, which will premiere in American theaters on November 6. Ford worked with Spectre's costume designer, Jany Temime, to create Bond's suits, eveningwear, shirts, knitwear, ties, and even some exclusive eyewear. (Whether the sunglasses he wears in the film will be sold, like the limited-edition watch Omega created for Bond, remains to be seen.) Spectre, like other see more

Apple's plans for global domination have entered their next stages. Word on the street is that the tech behemoth isn't satisfied with the basic subscription TV service it has had in the works for years. It also wants to get into original programming, according to an exclusive report in Variety.

Thought fan art was limited to pasta craft and pseudo-sexual fantasies submitted to LiveJournal? Think again.

Christina Applegate Playing Meryl Streep Is the Funniest Thing You'll See Today

Meryl: The Lifetime Biopic with Christina Applegate from Funny Or Die Maybe you've heard of Meryl Streep (or Meryl Fucking Streep, as she's known in some corners of the world)? Of course you have.

The Undead Rise in Fear the Walking Dead's Second Episode

Here's an interesting question: if the zombie apocalypse started tomorrow, how do you think you'd hear about it? Fear the Walking Dead suggests, wisely, that the news would go viral: at the beginning of tonight's episode it's a video of a corpse getting up and biting the paramedic who declared him dead that makes the rounds of social media, as teens sit glued to their smartphones, gawking in confusion. Of course this is hardly the first time we've seen the rise of the undead from the beginning, and we know, broadly speaking, what to expect: early skepticism, dawning suspicion, too-late see more

Saying Goodbye to Hannibal, the Most Hauntingly Beautiful Show on TV

If I had to describe NBC's Hannibal in a word, it would be "sumptuous". Or lavish, extravagant, resplendent: the point is that it's been appointed with impeccable style and taste. It's shot as if it were a glossy magazine spread. Its wardrobe looks hand-plucked from Pitti runways. Its rooms are furnished as if for a Shah. Even the food on its tables looks world-class—the budget for culinary props no doubt reaching up into the thousands every episode. And now that, in its third season, the discerning Dr. Lecter has absconded to the old-world splendor of Florence, Hannibal has managed to see more

This Wolf of Wall Street Beanie Babies Mashup Is the Ultimate White-Collar Crime Drama

If there's one shady impresario story more disturbing than Jordan Belfort's pump-and-dump manipulation of stock markets for his own eye-watering financial benefit, it's a guy doing basically the same thing except with stuffed animals. Put these two stories together and you have the ultimate entrepreneurial horror story. Envisioned by sketch-comedy troupe Friends of the People, The Bear of Beanie Street is the not-entirely-untrue story of Beanie Babies tycoon Ty Warner, the guy who ethically manipulated millions of people into thinking that selling collectible plushies on eBay would pay for their kids college tuition. This Wolf of Wall Street mashup see more
