Lin-Manuel Miranda has been sharing some old home movies he found a few days back, and honestly, it’s some humor we could all use these days.
- There’s a new rumor circulating around the theme park sphere: Disney might be looking into bringing an “Indiana Jones Land” to life at their Animal Kingdom Park in Orlando. (via /Film)
- Oprah Winfrey’s cable network, OWN, just put in an order for a coming-of-age movie starring Michael B. Jordan, written by Tarell Alvin McCraney, who won an Oscar for his work on Moonlight. We’re stoked for this. (via The Hollywood Reporter)
Yorgos Lanthimos, who directed the absurdist film The Lobster, is coming out with a new movie: The Killing of a Sacred Deer. It centers on a surgeon and his family’s struggles with a “mysterious paralysis curse.” (via Vice)

Thanks to the actions of counter-protesters, the alt-right (i.e., white supremacist Nazi) protests planned against Google have been indefinitely postponed. Bless you. Keep up the good work. No platform for Nazis or Nazi sympathizers.
- We’re really enjoying this collection of quotes from jurors who were rejected for the Martin Shkreli trial. Personal fave: “And he disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan.” Don’t forget: Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothin’ to fuck wit’. (via Jezebel)
What’d you see today, lovelies?
