It’s not uncommon for the average Netflix user to spend an hour scrolling through the streaming service's library of movies and TV shows, looking for something new to watch, only to end up binge-watching The Office for the hundredth time. No matter who your favorite character is, you’ve got to admit that many of them are people you hate to love. This definitely goes for Kelly Kapoor and Ryan Howard, Dunder Mifflin's most volatile on-again, off-again couple. So it's hardly surprising that both Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak, the actors who portrayed the couple, are still asked about their characters to this day.

While speaking to Variety, Kaling was asked about the rumors of a reboot of the series, and she admitted that she doesn’t really know how involved Ryan and Kelly would be if it did happen. When asked if she’d be interested in revisiting The Office, Kaling played it coy, responding, "I think that anything that [Greg Daniels] decided to do I would watch and love and want to help him with." But she did offer a bit of a funny prediction, stating:

“There's not an insignificant part of me that thinks that Kelly might be in jail. Crime of passion? The character just kept getting a little bit more and more unhinged. I don't wanna say that she murdered Ryan, but, like, I'm not convinced that he's still alive in the world of The Office.”

For fans of the series, that is actually not too hard to believe.

The status of a possible reboot of The Office has been up in the air for months, but at least we know we can always rewatch the beloved series on Netflix (at least for now).

Look Back at All 23 MCU Films With the Infinity Saga Box Set Trailer

While there had been plenty of popular Marvel movies prior to 2008’s Iron Man, everything changed when Robert Downey Jr. stepped into the role of Tony Stark and began the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that came the Infinity Saga, the culmination of all 23 films of phases one, two, and three of the MCU, concluding with the bittersweet Avengers: Endgame earlier this year. While fans are no doubt excited to follow Phase 4 with all the new, exciting films to come, nothing will ever be the same again.

Now that it’s all over, Marvel Studios is releasing an Infinity Saga box set of all the MCU films so far, and according to ComicBook.com, the upcoming release has also come with an emotional trailer. After debuting at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer, fans can now see the trailer on YouTube. 

The trailer features the biggest moments in the Infinity Saga leading up to Iron Man snapping the universe back into place, and sacrificing himself in the process. “What a world—universe, now,” Tony’s voice narrates. He’s got that right.

With Phase 4 of the MCU not picking back up until May 2020 with Black Widow, buying this box set might not be a bad idea. A release date has not been announced yet.

On October 11, Netflix will unleash El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie on the world at midnight. But for those Los Pollos Hermanos-loving fans who want the theatrical experience, Entertainment Weekly reports that the film will also screen in cinemas across 68 cities from October 11 to October 13.

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter that he filmed the movie—his feature film directorial debut—in CinemaScope 2.39 wide-screen format, making it an ideal film to watch in a theater. “Every time we’d put out a new season of Breaking Bad, we would have a premiere in a big movie theater,” Gilligan said. “I always thought, ‘This thing, it looks like a movie. It doesn’t look like a show.’ I really want to be able to share that with fans.”

Not much is known about the Jesse Pinkman movie, which filmed in secrecy last year. However, during this Sunday’s Emmys broadcast, a longer trailer will be released.

Here’s what we do know, though: Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter he worked with a fairly high budget and was able to film outside of Albuquerque. Ten “familiar” Breaking Bad characters will make appearances, including Jesse's beloved pal Badger. No matter what, the movie—whether watched in theaters, on your couch, or at your desk—will be an epic event.
