-I don’t know if Britney Spears intentionally timed this photo drop on the same day that Justin Timberlake was facing all the bad press over his Super Bowl performance, but I’m gonna go ahead and assume she did.
–Chris Carter says he won’t return to another season of The X Files without Gillian Anderson. You’re goddamn right you won’t. If you even attempt to, we’ll riot.
–Tom Hardy’s dog deserves an Oscar for this reaction face.
-The Good Place exists in the same world as Parks and Rec and I couldn’t be happier.
-It’s been a bad week for Quentin Tarantino. He responded to Uma Thurman’s claims in Deadline (which was a crazily fawning interview by Mike Fleming Jr. and included shit like, “I offered Tarantino the opportunity to clarify because at this moment, stories get written and then picked up across the globe, often getting twisted to suit convenient narratives in this #MeToo moment”). Tarantino said “It’s the biggest regret of my life, getting her to do that stunt. I start hearing from the production manager, Bennett Walsh, that Uma is trepidatious about doing the driving shot. None of us ever considered it a stunt. It was just driving. None of us looked at it as a stunt. Maybe we should have, but we didn’t.” I don’t know how you watch that video, even without knowing that she was warned that the car wasn’t operating well and her seat wasn’t bolted in correctly, and not think “stunt.”
-Also, an older Tarantino interview on Howard Stern‘s show has surfaced, which features the director defending Roman Polanski. “He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape…He had sex with a minor. That’s not rape…Look, she was down with this.” When Stern and his cohost Robin Quivers pointed out that she was given booze and drugs, he went on to call the child a “party girl.” You know you’ve crossed a line when even Howard freakin’ Stern is disgusted by your answers!
–Busy Philipps angrily recalled auditioning for Quentin Tarantino in ‘short shorts’.
-I like Roxanne Gay‘s take on artistic legacies and shitty geniuses.
–Reese Witherspoon opened up to Oprah Winfrey about a past abusive relationship. “It changed who I was on a cellular level, the fact that I stood up for myself.”
-First Cloverfield, now Annihilation. It seems that dumping big movies that will probably be flops onto Netflix is the new trend.
-Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going from Westeros to a galaxy far, far away. They’ll write and produce a new series of Star Wars films.
-I like this article on how Black Panther is a showcase for natural hair.
–David Tennant is very scary in the Bad Samaritan trailer. It stars Nathan from Misfits so I’m so in!
-I’m glad that Netflix’s Everything Sucks! is getting good early reviews. The trailer could have gone either way.
