Pee-Wee Herman's New Movie Gets Exclusive Netflix Release
Ready for the Pee-Wee revolution?

Well, ready or not, it's nearly upon us. Pee-Wee Herman is back in a big way- a new film starring Paul Reubens' beloved bow-tied weirdo may be headed to Netflix.

Reubens first announced a new Pee-Wee Herman film in October, but originally set the film up at Universal.

Now, Universal's gone and Netflix is swooping in; clearly part of Netflix's plan to become the content provider with that controls all content, now and forever.

We're still missing a few major details on the film (like a title, a story or a director) but we know that the latest installment...

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Star Addresses The Racist Haters:
Actor John Boyega, who has a starring role in the highly-anticipated "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," has come under fire from some despicable folks who call themselves fans of the space saga.

With a year to go and lots of post-production special effects to be added, the little tease already looks e...
