From the return of Scorsese to the cinema to the return of Futurama to television, here are your top entertainment stories.

New Scorsese & Transformer Projections

The first trailer for Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon has dropped, and it looks to be another classic project under his belt.

The film tells the story of the mysterious murders of the Osage tribe. Many members of the American-Indian tribe skyrocketed to wealth once oil deposits were discovered on their Oklahoma reservation, but of course that meant targets were painted on their backs. The film has a star-studded cast led by Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays Ernest Burkhart, and Lily Gladstone, the breakout indigenous actor who plays the Osage woman married to Ernest, Mollie Burkhart. Other notable performers include Brendan Fraser, Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, and Louis Cancelmi.

The anticipated flick is slated for a limited theatrical release on October 6 before a widespread rollout on October 20. It will then stream on Apple TV+.


Also in new movie news, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is projected to rake in just $68 million at the domestic box office, per The Hollywood Reporter, when it releases on June 9. If the projection comes to fruition, it would rank as the fifth most successful in the franchise (out of seven).

According to Collider, the story is set in the 1990s and not only is a sequel to the 2018 release Bumblebee but also a soft reboot of the franchise, the first of a brand new trilogy.


'Futurama' Returns

It has been nearly a decade since Futurama aired its final episode but great news for fans of the show: it's back.

New episodes of the sci-fi animated series will begin streaming July 24 exclusively on Hulu after last appearing on Comedy Central. New episodes will premiere every Monday. The return marks the second revival of the series following its original 1999 debut. The show was first canceled after just four seasons on Fox but regained steam with a new audience on Comedy Central through repeats. 

Its success on late night TV led to the production of four direct-to-DVD movies, which were then reworked into a fifth season. 

The sixth will have the original cast of voice actors as well as show creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen on board.


Conor McGregor Doc

Conor McGregor is probably one of the more captivating athletes today not only because of his prowess in the octagon but also due to his non-UFC antics. He is cocky, brash, in your face but he backs up in the ring — until he meets his match in Khabib Nurmagomedov. It was his first defeat in UFC 229, and in the Netflix documentary, McGregor Forever, fans get to watch him coped with the reality that he was not unbeatable.

The loss changed him so much that even his trainers noticed a difference in the fighter. He'd only had three bouts since the loss to Khabib, resulting in one win and two losses, and while he's slated to fight Michael Chandler this year, no date has been set.
