After months wrestling over the fate of millions of unsold Yeezy shoes, Adidas said Thursday it will sell a portion of its remaining inventory and donate the proceeds to charitable organizations.

Jennifer Lopez anchors the action pic 'The Mother'

The most interesting part of " The Mother," a decent if forgettable action pic starring Jennifer Lopez, is the one that is left largely unexplored. The movie is a high-concept thriller that boils down to just a few words: She's a mother and an assassin. OK, you're probably thinking, fine.

Misha Green's script was a hot commodity in 2017, around the time "Wonder Woman" opened, which had left some studios scrambling for action movies fronted by women. There were condescending headlines propping it up as a "female empowerment" script.

When Martin Scorsese premieres his latest film, "Killers of the Flower Moon," at the Cannes Film Festival on May 20th, it will return Scorsese to a festival where he remains a key part of its fabled history.

Scorsese premiered his masterpiece of urban alienation, "Taxi Driver," in Cannes in 1976. Its debut was one of the most fevered in Cannes history, drawing boos and some walkouts for the violence in Scorsese's tale of the disillusioned New York cab driver Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro).
