Making his first foray into animation might seem like a voyage into uncharted territory for director Guillermo del Toro , but his stop-motion reimagining of Pinocchio feels awfully familiar. (And not just because another version of the story, courtesy of Disney and Robert Zemeckis, just came out a couple months ago.) We follow a plucky kid hero living under European fascism in the early 20th century, guarded by a caring yet hardy single parent and menaced by a military official.

It’s the most wonderful—and debate-filled—time of the year for music lovers: the 2023 Grammy nominations are here! To absolutely no one’s surprise, Beyoncé leads the pack of nominees, thanks to her summer-dominating seventh studio album, Renaissance .
