Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s Montreal Date Night

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have taken their PDA tour to Montreal.

-Twitter is in chaos over this late-breaking Deadline report that Sony has ended its agreement with Marvel Studios, pulling Spider-Man out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Kevin Feige no longer being a part of the production of the sequels. The knee jerk reaction is that this is a really bad move on Sony’s part, who seem to believe that their success with Venom and Into the Spiderverse means they’re creatively strong enough to go it alone. But I can’t help but wonder if Disney leaked the news of the breakdown in talks to get fans all riled up and make the optics so bad they they force Sony to accept Disney’s bonkers demand for a 50/50 profit split. The next Tom Holland-led Spider-Man movie isn’t supposed to land until 2022. That’s a lot of time to weaponize fan outcry and negotiate using the press.

-Speaking of crazy movie news, Matrix 4 is officially a go with Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Lana Wachowski all signed on. What is happening today?!?

-A second person has come forward accusing Katy Perry of sexual harassment.

-This Variety cover story about how celebrities are  driving the podcast revolution is … odd. Nearly every good podcast I’ve listened to, from when I started ten years ago to today, comes from writers/journalists.

Adam Brody shot down rumours of a reboot of The OC but honestly, I could see it happening based on where all those actors ended up career-wise.

Brody Jenner is speaking up for his ex Kaitlynn Carter, saying there is “far too much negativity” being directed at her since photos of her and Miley Cyrus surfaced. Which is kind of a decent thing for him to do, so I’m very confused.

-Oh and Brody and Kaitlynn weren’t actually married. Neither were Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. This article about all the celebrities who’ve had weddings without legally getting married is bananas.

-The most followed YouTuber, PewDiePie, just got married. The teen in your life really cares about this, trust.

-I don’t watch Neftlix’s Elite, but my entire TL was very excited about this new season 2 trailer.

-This is the time of year when TV DVD sets hit, which means this is when we get the most blooper reels. Here’s the latest from Arrow, Schitt’s Creek, and Riverdale.

-It’s crazy to me that a British dramedy that critics are comparing to Fleabag and that stars Sharon Horgan from Catastrophe and Tobias Menzies from Outlander is not only debuting this week to so little fanfare that I had never even heard about it before Sepinwall posted his review, but a bunch of TV critics whose job it is to know these things were also in the dark.

-Succession has been renewed for season 3. I love those rich assholes.

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver break down a Marriage Story in two new teasers for Noah Baumbach‘s upcoming drama, which tells the story of a divorce from two different perspectives.

Harry Styles Goes Shirtless on Rolling Stone

-I checked to see how old Harry Styles is before deciding if I was allowed to drool a little over his Rolling Stone cover — and it turns out his 25. Totally fine. It took me awhile but I get it now.

Katie Holmes has reportedly pulled the plug on her relationship with Jamie Foxx, with the news coming days after he was spotted holding hands with another woman. Again.

-Congrats to Dwayne Johnson and his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, who got married in Hawaii.

-According to TMZ, Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber are eyeing a date in September for a big wedding event/anniversary party.

-Harry Potter co-stars Emma Watson and Tom Felton reunited to play guitar in their pjs, launching a million fanfics.

Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter continue to stoke relationship rumours. The pair were spotted hanging out with Miley’s mom in Los Angeles.

Elton John loaned his private jet to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry so they could enjoy some time at his private estate, and was not amused when the British press complained that the were adding to the carbon footprint by not flying commercial. The Brits are definitely focusing on the wrong royal right now.

-The casting for HBO/BBC’s fantasy drama adaptation of His Dark Materials continues to awe. Andrew Scott (aka Fleabag’s hot priest) just came onboard.

Kate Hudson doing sponcon for Weight Watchers is weird but at least she seems to be having fun with it. Who cooks in a trench coat tho?

-Arrow may be wrapping in January, but Stephen Amell already has his next gig lined up: he’ll headline an 8-episode wrestling drama at Starz. This seems like a good career move. Transition into a bit more prestige-y stuff, while sticking with TV and the type of content his fanbase will follow him for.

-Ugh, these clips from Anderson Cooper‘s interview with Stephen Colbert  on the tragic death of his father and brothers in a plane crash made me tear up.

-The Seth Rogen-produced Good Boys, a movie about the R-rated misadventures of 3 preteen boys, had the year’s largest opening total for an original comedy.

Lana Condor and Noah Centineo tweeting sweet things at each other as they wrap TATBILB filming is killing me.

-This is a good look at how this age of media corporation mega-mergers spells trouble. People don’t seem as concerned about Disney taking over Hollywood as maybe they should be.

-I was looking forward to CW’s debut of I Ship It tonight (about a woman who impulsively quits her job to become an assistant on the show she’s been writing fanfiction about) but the reviews are just ok.

-Man, last night’s episode of Succession should have included a trigger warning for anyone who’s ever worked in digital media. (One of the show’s writers/producers used to work for The Onion, which is probably why they nailed it.) The headlines running in the background for the fake Gawker/Buzzfeed site were perfect.

-Marvel Comics’ attempts to appear apolitical don’t seem to be working anymore.

-I really enjoyed this interview with Michelle Williams on preparing for Fosse/Verdon and taking a break from working.

-The trailer for Kristen Stewart’s “new” movie (which she filmed in 2017) couldn’t have come at a worse time for her.

Reese Witherspoon is taking on Marie Kondo with a new Netflix show about tidying up.

-Today was a *crazy* day for TV trailers and news. Steven Soderbergh‘s next movie about older ladies going on a trip (starring Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, and Dianne Wiest) has landed an the upcoming streaming service HBO Max. Amazon dropped its trailer (featuring Sterling K. Brown) and release date (Dec 6) for season 3 of Marvelous Mrs Maisel. We got our first trailer for Ryan Murphy‘s Upcoming Netflix show The Politician, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Platt. But the buzziest drop (and maybe not in a good way) was Apple’s first real trailer for The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell. For a company with a reputation for their marketing genius, they are not handling these trailers well. With this cast I was expecting a comedy, not what looks like a dour mix of Studio 60 and The Newsroom. And was Witherspoon really cast as the young ingenue?!

Naomi Watts Covers Shape

naomi-watts-shape

Naomi Watts discusses her acting process and finding the right characters in the new issue of Shape.

-Cue the Bridesmaid jokes: Kristen Wiig is engaged.

Whitney Port says she once passed up the opportunity to hook up with Leonardo DiCaprio. “I saw him at the Roosevelt Hotel. He invited me out to Teddy’s and he invited me back over to his house, and I said, ‘No.’ I was too nervous. I had never had a one-night stand. I didn’t want to be with him alone. I was way too nervous to do it and then I lost my chance and it’s really one of my bigger regrets in life.” I was with her right up until that last sentence.

Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus just dropped new music – though their singles couldn’t be more different. For what it’s worth, this is my fave single off Swift’s new album so far.

-Meanwhile, the new music video I can’t stop watching to is Normani’s “Motivation.” 

Brian Austin Green says he wasn’t initially interested in Megan Fox. Sure, Jan.

Jimmy Kimmel‘s dream has come true! He’s officially the honorary Mayor of Dildo, Newfoundland.

-A new report suggests Ewan McGregor will return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in his own Disney+ series.

-New details have emerged about the lawsuit filed against Faye Dunaway by her former assistant and it’s not great. He alleges she called him a “little homosexual boy” and then had him fired him after he reported her behaviour.

-Looks like Joss Whedon is still being Wheodon-y with his new show.

-This Betty Gilpin/Natasha Lyonne interview is giving me life!

-Is Kristen Stewart dating screenwriter Dylan Meyer? Lainey seems to think they’re just goofing around in these photos, but I don’t goof around like this with my buddies. (Of course, I’m not followed by paps that I might want to mess with.)

-Here’s the trailer for the Sundance hit, the refugee documentary Midnight Traveler.

-This romcom looks like it’s extremely my jam. A young woman spills her secrets to a stranger on a plane only to realize later the he was actually the CEO of her company in Can You Keep A Secret?
