Singer/actor Harry Styles of One Direction fame might play Prince Eric in the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. Or maybe it was all a load of carp?Movie theater chain Regal Cinemas sent out a tweet Tuesday afternoon announcing the casting and headlining the news with an all-caps "BREAKING" announcement. But the tweet was later deleted with no explanation. We've reached out to Regal, Styles' representatives, and Disney for comment, and will update if any of them respond.It's not like this is the first time Styles' name has been associated with the role. Other media outlets, including Vanity Fair, have reported that Styles has either signed on, or is about to do so. Disney site The DisInsider also cites an unnamed source saying Styles has taken the role.Though best known for his musical career, Styles played a soldier in Christopher Nolan's 2017 World War II film, Dunkirk.

So...assuming you celebrate, what did you do for Christmas? Was it filled with family and food, celebrated with your chosen “framily,” or spent binge-watching and bingeing on Chinese food *raises hand*? Whatever your holiday looked like this year, we hope it was everything you wished it to be, because ‘tis the season to do whatever brings you the most joy. Of course, in our downtime over the holiday, we couldn’t help but be a little curious about how the other half was celebrating this year... so we stalked their Instagrams to see who was naughty and nice this Christmas. Spoiler alert: Famous folks are just like us—meaning they’re goofy as hell, food- and family-obsessed and clearly more than a little bored over the holidays, too! Tracee Ellis Ross The Black-ish star is known for her fashion statements, but these two costume changes really expressed the spirit of the season...

Shepherded by hack auteur Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire, Stepmom), whose commercial instincts border on diabolical, the first two Harry Potter movies were all about delivering on the franchise. They weren't adaptations so much as pop-up novelizations, faithfully rendering J.K. Rowling's popular books without a surfeit of personality or imagination. So when it was announced that the third installment in the series was to be handed over to Alfonso Cuarón, the superb Mexican director of Y Tu Mamá También and A Little Princess, there was reason for cautious optimism. With so much at stake, would Cuarón infuse the material with his own vision, or would he be hamstrung by expectations, the stand-in conductor of a runaway train? Miraculously, Cuarón does a little bit of both in Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, which keeps the Potter universe intact while wresting it out of kiddie-land, introducing a sophisticated style that's simultaneously darker and more … [Read more...] about Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban

Although it might sound like a beer-drinking game, it's family friendly. Also known as designer board games or Euro board games, German-style board games are created following a series of fairly strict guidelines. In general, the games must last an hour or so – which makes them popular among the short-attention-span set. They have easy-to-understand rules, feature indirect competition between the players and are played with physical markers that move along a board – though not with the roll of dice, which introduces a random quality that German-style games don't have. Not only are the games themselves fairly short, the time between turns is also short, so players aren't sitting around waiting for each other to wrap up play.
