It's hard to imagine a more fitting East-meets-West collaboration than Diplo & Skrillex with BIGBANG's G-Dragon & 2NE1's CL. Although they might seem worlds apart, they all share quite similar fanbases that include hipsters, hip-hop heads, and commercial pop aficionados, giving them all a much larger reach than most.
Diplo confirmed that the four had hooked up for a song back in December, and now we finally get to hear it.
"Dirty Vibe," lifted from Skrillex's upcoming Recess album, puts the American hitmakers in familiar territory with wob-wob stutters and hyperactive moombahton beats. GD and CL provide the vocals, bragging and trading hip-hop barbs amidst all the noise. GD's lines tend to border on corny at times ("You ain't certified / you got the funny vibe"), but CL's so fierce she'd make Nicki Minaj jealous ("You ain't know? I'm your girl's lesbian crush!").
The one surprising thing about this collaboration is just how much GD and CL cuss. In K-pop land where innocently misusing a simple word can literally destroy your career overnight, hearing GD and CL sling words like "mother fucker" and "shit" is, well, pretty fucking cool.

There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).
See if you can spot it.

If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.
The best thing about movies is that sometimes they feature cats.
Cats are great. They are furry purr-boxes that usually hate you. Whether they're the hero, the villain, or just kind of there, nothing beats watching a movie and seeing a cat on-screen. So we've compiled a list of the best REAL cats in movies. That means the movie needs to feature a REAL cat instead of an animated cat, because otherwise this would just be a list of cartoon cats. These cats are REAL, and they're works of art:
