Jordan Peele's 'Us' is a Creepy Tale That Sadly Mirrors Our Reality

MOVIE REVIEW
On May 25, 1986, approximately 6.5 million Americans stood hand in hand forming a human chain that stretched from New York to California for an event called Hands Across America. It was a fundraiser project from USA for Africa (the same people who produced the “We Are the World” single the year before) in hopes of raising $100 million to fight hunger and homelessness.

Survivor 35: Heroes, Healers and Hustlers

Meet the cast of "Survivor" season 35.
The castaways for season 35 of Survivor (CBS)

As always, all of them will have the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in an attempt to become the Sole Survivor.

Check out the photos below and watch the video to see who you think might have what it takes to win this thing.




This season’s show was filmed on the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji and is being hosted by Jeff Probst once again. Here are the three tribes:
