-This take is TRASH: the Hollywood Reporter’s cover story says Warner Bros is “gambling $150M” on Wonder Woman’s female director because her only prior big screen credit is the $8M Oscar-nominated, critically acclaimed Monster. Seriously? As Twitter was quick to point out, Hollywood handed the keys to the Jurassic franchise over to Colin Trevorow, who had only done the $750K Safety Not Guaranteed, which wasn’t nominated for shit and no one saw it. Or what about Josh Trank, who jumped from teeny tiny indie Chronicle to Fantastic Four? Same with Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Gareth Edwards, Jon Watts, Alan Taylor, David Yates, James Gunn, etc. Hollywood throws money at white men who barely have a YouTube channel all the time. But this is a gamble that requires hand-wringing? Nah, son.

– Jennifer Garner is on the cover of People and it confused everyone because it’s kind of a nothing article. It turns out she had no involvement in the story at all. She took to Facebook to say “This isn’t a tragedy by any measure, but it does affect me and my family and so, before my mom’s garden club lights up her phone, I wanted to set the record straight: I did not pose for this cover. I did not participate in or authorize this article. While we are here, for what it’s worth: I have three wonderful kids and my family is complete.” A celebrity calling out People like this? Yikes.
