-Here’s the Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later trailer. Holy crap on a stick, is that Chris Pine?!?
-Also, this bit about Chris Pine in the Charles Taylor interview is great: “I don’t know why he isn’t getting every leading role there is. He’s gorgeous, he’s charming, he’s got a great level-headed presence, and what he does in Wonder Woman is amazing. He is there to show her off. That is really the mark of someone who knows how to act in front of a camera: I am going to step back a bit and let my co-star shine.”
-Meanwhile, I took this Buzzfeed quiz where you create a BLT and discover your perfect Chris, and I got Chris Evans. I’m very ok with that.
-JFC… Bill Cosby wants to hold seminars on how to avoid sexual assault accusations. Don’t assault people. There, I’ve just written his whole script for him.
–Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler reunited for a “Really?!?” segment last night on the Late Show. Really.
-Also, Amy Poehler has a theory about Daniel Day Lewis’ retirement. It involves potato chips and misunderstandings.
-I had very little interest in seeing Rough Night, but the trailers for Girls Night have me psyched. Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and the cast are featured in an upcoming episode of Carpool Karaoke and the preview is great.
–Ron Howard has officially taken over for the Hans Solo movie. According to EW, Lord & Miller were leaning into the comedy and allowing the stars to improv (which is what one does when one hires actors like Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge), but writer and Star Wars veteran Lawrence Kasdan wanted them to stick to the script. The kicker at the end of this article though…
-Also, who will get the finished film’s directing credit? How will residuals be apportioned? Will Lord and Miller even be allowed to attend the premiere? The directors guild is going have an interesting time figuring this one out.
–NASA is not impressed with GOOP’s $120 bio-frequency healing sticker packs.
–Alison Brie is doing some hard posing and smizing at the Glow premiere, but Dave Franco‘s presence makes it all better.
-It’s been a rough news week. Hey, here’s Justin Trudeau hugging an enthusiastic unicorn puppet for CBC Kids.
-The weirdest part about the Downton Abbey movie announcement is all the articles in which the cast seems surprised. “Well, tell my agent, because we’re still waiting to know.”
-Transformers: The Last Knight suffered a franchise-low opening day.
–Taylor Swift put her music on streaming services and just made almost $400,000 in one week.
-HBO wants you to watch The Leftovers series finale so much, they put it up on YouTube for free. (I adored it, but if you didn’t watch the series you’ll be lost.)
–Alexis Bledel, who did the best work of her career in The Handmaids Tale, will return as a series regular in Season 2 (which has been extended to 13 episodes from 10). Which probably means no more new Gilmore Girls for quite some time…
-I’m kinda glad Jennifer Lopez is going back to her romantic comedy roots. That’s where I like her best (outside of Out of Sight, but that felt like a fluke).
-This is a great read about a Facebook group of tens of thousands of Brendan Fraser fans. Surprising, sweet fandom shit like this makes me weirdly happy.
–John Cho ponders death and romance in the Columbus trailer. Yes! John Cho in as the romantic lead in everything, please!
-Look at our girl Tatiana Maslany co-leading a movie alongside Jake Gyllenhaal. Look at her!!
