Judge Orders That Jussie Smollett’s Case File Be Unsealed
A Chicago judge ordered that Justin Smollett’s case file be unsealed Thursday, making the records available to the public.

The charges against Smollett included an accusation that the “Empire” actor staged a racist and homophobic attack on himself and arranged for two brothers to carry it out. He denied the charges. Prosecutors abruptly dropped all charges against Smollett on March 26.

Once the charges were dropped, the court approved Smollet’s lawyer’s request to seal the case, but it was unsealed Thursday at the request of The New York Times and news other organizations that argued for the need for transparency, the Times reported.

The ruling by Judge Steven G. Watkins of the Circuit Court of Cook County may lead to some answers as to why the office dropped the charges.

The files are expected to be made available to the public some time Thursday afternoon, but were not available

Oh, No! Toy Story 4's Ending Is So Emotional, Tim Allen Called Tom Hanks to Warn Him
Well, folks, our favorite childhood toys are probably embarking on their last adventure in Toy Story 4. Tom Hanks - who plays the lovable cowboy Woody - stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday to discuss the end of the film franchise, and it sounds like we'll need to bring a box of tissues to the theater.

After talking a little bit about the plot, he revealed that his costar Tim Allen (aka Buzz Lightyear) called him when they were recording for the movie and asked if Tom had read the last pages of the script. He then warned that they were tough to get through since they mark the end of a 20-year friendship between their characters. "We're saying goodbye to Woody and Buzz and Bonnie's room and Andy and everybody. It was emotional," Tom said.

Emilia Clarke Says She Dreaded This Game of Thrones Phone Call: It's Like the
Warning: Massive Game of Thrones spoilers ahead.

The Game of Thrones finale really tore the internet apart following the heartbreaking murder of queen Daenerys Targaryen, but it looks like no one was less surprised than Daenerys herself. In a recent round-table interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Emilia Clarke revealed that showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff had their own sort of "Dracarys!" signal all along, and she's been dreading it since the show's very first season.

"On our show, you get the call," Clarke said, explaining that it was a preemptive sign that Weiss and Benioff were planning to kill off a specific character. "It'd be like, 'Oh, my God, [D.B. Weiss and David Benioff] want to take me out for dinner,' and that's the kiss of death, literally. Every time they'd ask you out for dinner, they'd have to be like, 'We're not trying to kill you, we just want to get dinner.

Aladdin Doesn’t Have a Postcredit Scene, but You Should Stay Put For This Fun Reason

Are you ready for some magic? Because Disney's live-action reboot of Aladdin has arrived, and it's a colorful, whimsical thrill ride.

This time around, Jack Ryan's Mena Massoud plays the beloved street rat, who's far more adept at Parkour than you might've realized. Joining him are Will Smith as the Genie and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine. Overall, the strong cast makes for a wildly entertaining film that you'll likely never want to end. But the question remains: should you stick around for a postcredit scene?

The short answer is no, Aladdin does not have a postcredit scene. The slightly longer answer is that while no bonus footage is lurking at the very end of the credits, a fun dance sequence begins just after the film wraps up that's totally worth sticking around for. Like in one of Smith's other popular comedies, Hitch, a big post-wedding dance scene plays out as the credits begin,

Game of Thrones Is Over, But We Still Want Answers to These Questions

Game of Thrones Is Over, But We Still Want Answers to These Questions
Game of Thrones is over. Bran Stark is king. Daenerys Targaryen is dead. Sansa Stark is queen in the North. There's no going back to Westeros, so all these questions we still have about eight seasons of story...they're bothering us. They range from technical questions—was Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) really loud? Her speeches reached thousands!—to plot-based inquiries—did Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) orchestrate...everything?!—and everything in between. We'll likely never get answers to a lot of these questions. Plot points were just dropped. Characters disappeared. Motivations never explained.
