The It List is Yahoo’s weekly look at the best in pop culture, including movies, music, TV, streaming, games, books, podcasts and more. Here are our picks for Feb. 18 to 24, including the best deals we could find for each

How to Train Your Dragon (2010) and How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) were both major box-office hits that were nominated for Academy Awards. So why does it feel like this series is so underappreciated next to the Toy Stories and Despicable Me’s of the world? Critics are once again loving this trilogy capper that signals a bittersweet parting for its young Viking hero Hiccup and his fire-breathing friend Toothless, so maybe that finally changes. In other words, The Hidden World could be the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King of the animated franchise.

You may have crossed every Oscar-nominated feature off of your “must-see” list … but have you seen every Oscar-nominated short film? Shorts TV has made it easy for you, by assembling all 15 nominees into three programs — Animated, Live Action and Documentary — that you can watch from the comfort of your own living room. This year’s lineup of nonfiction shorts is particularly strong, with the standouts including A Night at the Garden — a short, but shocking look back at a 1939 Nazi rally that happened on our very own shores at New York’s Madison Square Garden — and End Game, an emotional exploration of how families make end-of-life decisions for loved ones. Pixar most likely has a lock on the Animated Short Oscar with Bao, but don’t count out Trevor Jimenez’s strikingly drawn Weekends. And if you ask us, the live-action short to beat is the Spanish nominee, Madre, a kidnapping thriller that plays out over a single cellphone call.

The 2019 Oscar Nominated Shorts are available to rent on Amazon, iTunes and Vimeo On Demand. The three programs are also playing in limited theatrical release; check Fandango for showtime and ticket information.

The critically acclaimed neo-soul star drops her hotly anticipated new mixtape, featuring Musiq Soulchild, Ty Dolla $ign, 6LACK and Dom Kennedy. This isn’t Kehlani’s only special delivery planned for 2019: the 23-year-old is currently pregnant with her first child too.

CBS’s long-running reality series just enjoyed one of its best seasons in years, thanks to an addictive “David vs. Goliath” hook. Now, a new group of castaways, plus four returning favorites, will live life … on the edge. The compelling new gameplay wrinkle for this edition is the titular “Edge of Extinction” — an isolated beach where contestants whose fires are snuffed out during Tribal Council can opt to survive instead of leaving the game. Provided they aren’t defeated by the scant resources and challenging elements, they can try to chart a path back into the main camp and maybe even the million-dollar prize.
Survivor: Edge of Extinction premieres Feb. 20 on CBS and CBS All Access.

It seems crazy, but this week marks 25 years since the movie about Gen Xers struggling to find their place in the world after college graduation debuted in theaters on Feb. 18, 1994. So, weirdly, the film has now been around longer than Lelaina, Troy and the Reality Bites gang had been alive when we first met them. Their 20-something musings, the countless pop culture references (to MTV’s The Real World and Gap, for starters) and that unforgettable dance scene at the gas station, set to “My Sharona,” are still there waiting, just the same, although you’ll surely see everything much differently in 2019.

Call it: The Social Network 2: Virtual Reality Edition. Blake J. Harris’s intensively researched, but breezily written book details the humble origins of the next-gen VR headset, the Oculus Rift, and how it was acquired by Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook machine. Like the author’s previous book, Console Wars — a compelling history of the era-defining battle between the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis (it’s being developed into a TV series by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg) — The History of the Future is paced like a high-concept corporate thriller, filled with surprise twists, exciting breakthroughs and lots of boardroom intrigue.


Summary: Pluto comes out of nowhere and quickly makes himself at home with the Davis family, who are on the brink of falling apart.

Pluto is not only a guard dog – he’s a guardian angel. Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places. Sometimes our prayers get answered in strange ways.

Aashiqui 3

Aashiqui 3 is releasing on 14th February : Know about the legacy of Aashiqui

Bollywood never stopped spreading love in our lives. Right from the black and white entertainment period to this 3D era, love was never separated from the themes of Bollywood movies. Bollywood gave us so many romantic movies like “Rehna Hai Here Dil Me”, ” Jab We Met”, “Mohabbatein”, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge” etc. This list just goes on.

This year is no different and Bollywood is giving us three movies full of love, comedy, suspense, and passion. “Gully Boy”, ” Facebook Wala Pyaar” and “Aashiqui 3” are those three movies.

Out of these three movies what catches our senses is Aashiqui 3 which is the third installment of this Aashiqui series. The reason behind separating this movie from the other two is the romance legacy of this series. Since 1990, Aashiqui is touching everyone’s heart.

The first movie of this series featured Rahul Roy, Deepak Tijori and Anu Aggarwal. Not so stable but perfect ending love story brought tears to many eyes. All the tracks from this movie are still famous and those are still able to spread intense romance. It is one of the highest selling music alba in the history of the Indian music industry.

After 23 years gap, the second film of this series came out and again the music did the magic. Media was worried that this movie may not be able to reach the heights and standards that are set by the first film. But its music was enough to do all the magic.

The plot involves a turbulent relationship between Aarohi ( Shraddha Kapoor) and Rahul ( Aditya Roy Kapoor). The relationship is more affected by the alcoholic nature of Rahul.

The profession of both the leads is a singer in this movie. In the end, Rahul commits suicide because he feels that he is becoming a burden in Aarohi’s life and obstacle in her career. The film collected Rs.1.09 Billion worldwide. Also, this movie bagged almost every award in music in 2013-2014.

6 years have passed and Aashiqui 3 is releasing on Valentine’s day. The very first thing we are looking forward to is its soundtracks. It was said that Hrithik Roshan and Shraddha Kapoor will be starred in this movie but those were rumors. One of the best onscreen couple of new generation, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra are playing main roles.

When Shraddha was asked about how she feels about Aashiqui 3; she said that she doesn’t feel that she should be part of it because their story ended in Aashiqui 2 itself. She thinks Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra would perform well and Aashiqui will again touch many hearts.

All the fans and critics are waiting for this movie like anything. Let’s see what Aashiqui 3 brings to us.

Krrish 4

Hrithik Roshan announces ‘Krrish 4’

Jadoo will always India’s answer to ET. The extraterrestrial character was introduced to Bollywood by Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan in the super-hit film, ‘Koi… Mil Gaya’ (2003). The third instalment of the franchise, ‘Krrish 3’, was released in over five years ago, in 2013. For some time now, rumours have been rife about a fourth instalment of the movie being made, but nothing was confirmed officially.
And now, there’s some happy news for fans of the franchise. If Hrithik’s latest Instagram post is anything to go by, looks like the speculations were true.

The actor has posted a throwback video of the making of the ‘Krrish 3’, with the caption:

“Do you ever feel terrified when you think about the distance between where you want to be and where you are ? Krrish in many ways for me is the struggle, aspiration and endeavor of wanting to travel the length of that distance. When my dad thought of the idea of Krrish , the first thing I felt was doubt, uncertainty and incapable, I was simply afraid, and the second thing I felt was absolute terror at the thought of not doing it because I was afraid. So we went ahead and took the fear along with us for the ride.

What we lacked in budget, technology, specialization and resources , we made up in tenacity, teamwork, discipline and perseverance. Today, we are at the heels of yet another endeavor to shorten that distance with Krrish4; and I feel exactly the same fear as I felt all those years ago. And that is why I am reassured that we are on the right track.

Here, take a look at the video:

Priyanka Chopra had acted opposite Hrithik in ‘Krrish 3’. With PeeCee being busy with her wedding and foreign assignments, will she be a part of this one, too? Though Kangana Ranaut was also part of ‘Krrish 3’, given the way their ties have worsened since then, it’s a given that she won’t be a part of the upcoming film.

Sadak 2

Hera Pheri 3

Hera Pheri 3: Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal to get back together?
Hera Pheri’s third installment is all set to go on floors this year. The original film’s star cast – Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Sunil Shetty – will play lead roles in Hera Pheri 3.

When Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Sunil Shetty came together for a film in the year 2000, it went on to become a cult classic. Hera Pheri, which was then directed by Priyadarshan, is still one of the most loved comedy films in Bollywood till date. Though the sequel of the film, Phir Hera Pheri, wasn’t able to match up to the original film, the makers of the film have decided to bring the trio together for the third installment of the film.

It is reported that producer Firoz Nadiadwala as joined hands with director Indra Kumar for the third Hera Pheri.

A source close to the film told a daily, At present, the film is in the scripting stage. Indra Kumar has been working with his team of writers on the story since May last year and has already locked the first half, while the second half requires some more work. He will jump into it after the release of his upcoming directorial, Total Dhamaal.

The source added, The delays happened due to issues in the script. Hera Pheri is an iconic franchise and the team is in no hurry to take it on floors. Though everyone is excited, no one wants to compromise on the script for a substandard product to capitalise on the franchise’s power.

Earlier, it was reported that Akshay had initially walked out of the franchise after a fallout with Firoz. However, now it is learnt that they have kept aside their differences for the film.

Sabaash Naidu

‘Sabash Naidu’ is on the cards, assures Shruti Haasan

It’s a well-known fact that Kamal Haasan and daughter Shruti teamed up for the trilingual comedy film ‘Sabash Naidu’, which was formally announced in 2016. After filming for months, the shooting came to a halt after Kamal Haasan suffered the fracture at his Chennai residence.

After recovering from the accident, Kamal went on to start his political party Makkal Needhi Maiam and has been busy with political commitments. Since then, ‘Sabash Naidu’ has been in the limbo. However, Shruti Haasan has now assured fans that she would start shooting for ‘Sabash Naidu’ soon. In a recent interview, Shruti has clarified that the film is definitely on the cards.

A spin-off of the popular character Balram Naidu from ‘Dasavatharam’, ‘Sabash Naidu’ will be directed by Kamal Haasan himself.

Also starring Ramya Krishnan, Brahmanandam, Saurabh Shukla and Radha Ravi in pivotal roles, ‘Sabash Naidu’ will have music by maestro Ilaiyaraaja.

Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan’s latest outing ‘Vishwaroopam 2’ has opened to mixed response from critics and audience alike. Despite high expectations, the film has turned out to be a damp squib at the box office.
