John Cho‘s Searching also did well, nabbing the highest per screen of any movie this weekend.

-People have been dunking on Ethan Hawke all weekend for his quotes about how he doesn’t think superhero movies deserve praise, but reading the whole interview, I think that’s taking it wildly out of context.

Beyonce Offers Glimpse of Family Life in Vogue Clip

Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir made a brief appearance in Beyonce‘s behind-the-scenes Vogue clip (which Bey had total control of, remember?).

Brad Pitt is reportedly “disgusted” that Angelina Jolie made their divorce battle public. Oh, but using TMZ to be your mouthpiece is totally chill?

It’ll close with Jeremiah Terminator Leroy, starring Laura Dern as an author who writes under a fictionalized persona, a young queer man named JT LeRoy. Kristen Stewart plays her boyfriend’s androgynous sister who agrees to be JT in the public eye. This image alone sold me.

Ariana Grande and James Corden performed a musical version of Titanic.

-The Infinity War blooper reel is mildly funny. Needs more of the Chrises. It’s been a rough week so I’ll take either of ’em at this point.

-I liked this article defending the oft-maligned college season of WB teen dramas.

Bill Cosby is still Bill Cosby-ing it up.

-The What Men Want trailer does not look great, but I guess it’s marginally better than the original Mel Gibson version.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Talk Friendship, Death and Streisand

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are covering EW’s fall movie preview, in which they talk about their friendship, the day Barbra Streisand came to set of A Star Is Born, and Gaga losing her friend to cancer the day of her big performance scene: “We were supposed to shoot in, like, 30 minutes, and I left the set because her husband called me and I could hear her in the background and I just got in the car and drove. I missed her by 15 minutes and she died. I literally laid with her, with her husband, and their dog, and his son… When I came back, Bradley was so gentle with me and we got through it. I performed the song. He was like, ‘You don’t have to do it again. It’s okay.’ All I ever wanted to do was sing. I’ll never forget that day. It was really a special scene, and I’ll always remember that moment.”

-Angelina Jolie‘s team is striking back against Brad Pitt‘s claims that he’s paid her millions: “Brad was asked to assist in the expense of a new home for Angelina and the children, but instead he loaned Angelina money, for which he is charging her interest on a payment plan…A loan is not; however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate.”

Madonna does not hold back when talking about the state of music today: “Everything’s so formulaic, and every song has 20 guest artists on it, and everyone sounds the same.”

Ewan McGregor took nine months off to spend time with his kids — which sounds swell until you realize it was probably because his family imploded when he left his wife of 22 years and started dating Fargo costar Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

-Reviews are starting to come in for Crazy Rich Asians and it’s currently at 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. I. CANNOT. WAIT.

Gabrielle Union was asked to host a Crazy Rich Asians screening and she turned it down for the best possible reason, in the best possible way: “We will pay for a screening, we will support it, we will amplify it, but it should be an Asian celebrity or influencer or business person that you’re looking to and the rest of us should be amplifying that message.”

-Speaking of great cover stories, Time’s profile of Spike Lee is a bomb read.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are such a force to be reckoned with, South Carolina schools are letting kids out early the night of their concert.

-God, I love that Natasha Rothwell is blowing up. She’s the best thing about Insecure, a show that’s already filled with good things.
