NEW YORK (AP) -- 

"The Crown" has found its Princess Diana.

Elizabeth Debicki will play the Princess of Wales in seasons five and six of "The Crown," the Netflix series announced Sunday.

Debicki will join a new cast for the series that includes Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret and Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip. Staunton succeeds Olivia Colman and Claire Foy in the role.

Emma Corrin is playing Diana on the drama's upcoming fourth season, but Debicki will take on the part for what's sure to be the character's most dramatic chapters. Seasons five and six are expected to be the show's final seasons. No premiere date of season four has yet been announced.

"Princess Diana's spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many," Debicki said on Twitter. "It is my true privilege and honor to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one."

NEW YORK (AP) -- 

AMC Theatres, the nation's largest movie theater chain, will reopen in the U.S. on Aug. 20 with retro ticket prices of 15 cents per movie.

AMC Entertainment, which owns the chain, said Thursday that it expects to open the doors to more than 100 cinemas — or about a sixth of its nationwide locations — on Aug. 20 with throwback pricing for a day.

AMC theaters have reopened in numerous international countries but have remained shuttered in the U.S. since March. The chain touted the reopening as "Movies in 2020 at 1920 Prices." 

After several false starts due to a summer rise in coronavirus cases throughout much of the U.S., widespread moviegoing is currently set to resume in late August. Regal Cinemas, the second largest chain, is to reopen some U.S. locations on Aug. 21.

During its opening-day promotion, AMC will show catalog films, including "Ghostbusters," "Black Panther," "Back to the Future" and "Grease." Those older films More

LONDON (AP) -- 

Relations between the British government and ice cream maker Ben & Jerry's chilled Wednesday in a spat over the treatment of migrants.

The feud began Tuesday when the Vermont-based dessert brand directed a tweet at Britain's interior minister, Home Secretary Priti Patel, who has vowed to stop asylum seekers crossing the English Channel from France to England in small boats. Hundreds of people have made the dangerous crossing in the past weeks of calm summer weather.

The company tweeted: "Hey @PritiPatel we think the real crisis is our lack of humanity for people fleeing war, climate change and torture." It followed up with a series of tweets suggesting the government speak to refugee organizations and saying that "PEOPLE CANNOT BE ILLEGAL," in response to some politicians' talk of "illegal" immigrants.

The Home Office hit back, saying Patel was "working day and night to bring an end to these small boat crossings" and was More

NEW YORK (AP) -- 

"MacGruber," a parody skit on "Saturday Night Live" that became a movie, is coming back to the small screen. 

The NBCUniversal streaming platform Peacock said Monday that Will Forte will once again play the mullet-haired hero for a new half-hour series.

Peacock said the series will follow MacGruber after rotting in prison for a decade as he hunts down a mysterious villain from his past. 

The "MacGyver" parody series will use the 2010 film adaptation as a jumping off point. That portrayed MacGruber as a soldier of fortune who is supposedly a whiz at defusing bombs. The film also starred Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe and Val Kilmer.

The film "MacGruber" helped Forte transition from "Saturday Night Live." While a box-office disappointment, earning just $8.5 million, the absurdist comedy has its cult adherents.
