-The first episode of Drew Barrymore‘s talk show was a lot, y’all. After the chaotic first 15 mins, she got more into a groove, especially when interviewing Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. You could tell that these three are legitimately tight.
-So Chris Evans livened up our weekend by accidentally posting a photo of his camera roll on Instagram, which included a dick pic. It’s kind of wonderful that Twitter as a whole collectively seems reluctant to share the image but I wish the same kindness was extended to female celebs when this happens (especially since theirs are usually the result of malicious hacks, not their own inadvertent posting).
-It’s wild to me that Sarah Jessica Parker played Carrie Bradshaw for so long and yet seems to have no understanding of that character.
-The Fast Times live table read with Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, which was supposed to be last month, has been rescheduled for Thursday night.
-Speaking of live reads, last night’s Princess Bride reunion was a delight.
-Lifetime’s first holiday movie with a lead LGBTQ storyline is set to star real-life spouses Ben Lewis and Blake Lee. Lewis was one of the best things about the final shaky season of Arrow.
-The Fall TV schedule looks so sparse this year, but HBO is premiering two new shows tonight: We Are Who We Are, Call Me By Your Name’s Luca Guadagnino‘s new show about teens in Italy on a U.S. military base, and The Third Day, a 6-episode series starring Jude Law and Naomie Harris.
–Cassie Randolph filed a restraining order against former Bachelor Colton Underwood, citing “domestic violence prevention” in her request.
-Model Bar Refaeli has been sentenced in Israel to nine months of community service after being found guilty of evading almost $10 million in taxes.
–JK Rowling continues to be a garbage person. Her new book features a trans serial killer.
-The Parks and Rec cast is set to reunite for a virtual town hall to benefit the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
–Jonathan Majors, who’s riding high this year with Lovecraft and Da 5 Bloods, is rumoured to be playing the villain in the next Ant-Man movie.
-Speaking of Lovecraft, this is a great profile on Michael Kenneth Williams.
–Chloé Zhao won the Golden Lion at this year’s Venice Film Festival for Nomadland. I watched it this weekend at TIFF and adored it.
-Tenet only earned $6.7 million in the domestic box office this weekend, despite there being basically no competition and it playing on 100 more screens. This brings its total haul to under $15 million, proving that for now at least, there is simply no market in the US. Expect studios to push their remaining big releases to next year.
-Meanwhile, Warner Bros. won’t share Tenet box office data through Comscore, angering rival studios.
-Also, Mulan fared poorly at the China box office with a disheartening $23.2 million debut.
-Between Wonder Woman being pushed again, Tenet and Mulan underperforming, and the stupid Cuties Netflix controversy, it’s no wonder The Ankler called last week “the week that movies died.”
-At least Netflix is still thriving. They just bought the quarantine-shot movie from the creator of Euphoria starring Zendaya and John David Washington for $30 million.
-Here’s the first trailer for The Father, starring Olivia Colman and Anthony Hopkins. I have a screening for it tomorrow night and I’m pretty sure it’s gonna destroy me.
