–Ben Affleck‘s future as Batman in doubt, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They say Warner Bros. is looking at plans to quietly phase out Affleck’s Batman and replace him with a younger actor.
–T.J. Miller really, really needs to stop bad-mouthing his Silicon Valley costars.
-More details about Johnny Depp’s crazy spending has come out from the lawsuit, including paying $500k for storage of items like a couch he bought from the Kardashians to give to his daughter.
–Céline Dion is modeling the most dazzling looks from this season’s couture shows for Vogue.
-I’m bummed that Netflix’s Ozark is getting bad reviews. I really want any show that features Jason Bateman and Laura Linney as married.
-Congrats to Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tasha McCauley, who welcomed a baby boy. It’s their second kid.
–Issa Rae looks ah-maz-ing in the new issue of Complex.
-The Game Of Thrones showrunners responded to outrage surrounding their first big post-Thrones project, Confederate, in a new interview with Vulture and it’s not exactly comforting. I really hate their ‘wait and see before you judge’ stance. The fact is, if we wait and see, that means waiting until HBO throws millions of dollars into making a first season (because they don’t work on a pilot system), marketing, etc. If this seems problematic right from the start — and it certainly does — than why not voice those concerns from the outset?
–Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk opened really strong in previews last night. I know I should see it but the idea of going to a war movie in the middle of summer bums me out. It’s so, so weird that they’re releasing it now.
–Jada Pinkett Smith joked that she wishes those rumours about her and Will Smith being swingers were true.
–Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are buddy cops in a supernatural world in the trailer for Bright, Netflix’s most expensive movie to date ($90 million).
–John Boyega stars in the trailer to the sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim.
