Charlize Theron Gets Tough in W

Charlize Theron W

Charlize Theron previews her ass-kicking role in Atomic Blonde in the new issue of W. She talks about the only bar fight she’s ever been in, accidentally punching Teri Hatcher in the face, and getting injured on set.

-There’s a lot of talk today about the scorched-earth interview T.J. Miller gave THR in the wake of his last episode of Silicon Valley. He’s way not enough of a household name to have this kind of attitude. He comes off terribly, takes a few swipes at costar Thomas Middleditch and burns a ton of bridges. Fargo’s Allison Tolman made a good point on Twitter: what would have the response been if an actress made those types of comments? Katherine Heigl was crucified for much less.

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s twins have finally left the hospital.

Brad Pitt is probably not dating Sienna Miller or Elle McPherson. What other attractive, age appropriate blonde can we throw at him?

Courteney Cox says she’s given up on fillers. Hallelujah!

Bruno Mars was looking real sleepy at the BET Awards last night.

-Meanwhile, Chris Brown and Migos reportedly had an altercation after the BET Awards.

Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Fallon playing “Whisper Challenge” led to Jimmy saying “cock” on TV so that’s fun.

-China’s box office rescued Transformers from disaster, continuing a trend of bailouts. The robots-in-disguise sequel collected $69 million in the U.S., a franchise low, but hit $123 million in China, a franchise high there.

-War for the Planet of the Apes is getting really good reviews. Like really, really good. Huh.

-Now that Netflix has started cancelling shows, they just can’t stop. Girlboss is the latest casualty.

-One of Johnny Depp‘s former manager backs up Amber Heard’s accusations against the actor. Well, if a man says it happens I guess everyone can believe her now, right?

-Here are more details about what really went down in the Hans Solo movie. An interesting tidbit: Lucasfilm decided to bring in an acting coach for Alden Ehrenreich when they were not entirely satisfied with the performance (acting coaches are not unusual — bringing one in that late into production is.)

-Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley will star in Lifetime’s adaptation of Caroline Kepnes‘ You. Oh, this is GOOD casting. He can play creepy yet strangely sympathetic well. Of course, this adaptation is going to live or die by who they cast as the female lead.

-Meanwhile, Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke celebrated their new marriage with another wedding.

-The new season of The Good Place will have a clam chowder fountain, which kind of sounds lovely.

-The writers for the new season of X Files have been revealed: Darin Morgan is back, but sadly no Vince Gilligan and Frank Spotnitz — and no women! Come on.

Idris Elba slays in new preview for Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower.

-The Bellas take their show on the road in first trailer for Pitch Perfect 3.

Buffy Mania Overtakes The Internet — And I Love It!

buffy-vampire-slayer-ew

-EW dropped a surprise Buffy reunion cover today — complete with an amazing photo shoot and a 44-minute video special — and my heart is so full! The only person missing is Anthony Stewart Head. (Nicholas Brendan is there too, but for some reason he isn’t in the group video chat. And he didn’t tag Alyson Hannigan in his FB post about it.) In any case, I’m really hoping my subscriber cover ends up being this one.

-I also really liked everyone’s take on Angel vs Spike. I love Spike as a character (especially in the spinoff) but attempted rapists are probably not meant to be part of the OTP.

Annette Bening ordered Warren Beatty home after the Best Picture fiasco at the Oscars. Smart woman.

-Costars/new couple Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood look like they’re having fun in Mexico. (I hate her high-cut bikini. And she has multiple versions of it!)

-The Mindy Project is only getting one more season, which is good. I’m looking forward to seeing what she does next.

-Studio head Sherry Lansing‘s new biography includes tidbits about Angelina Jolie‘s mandated drug testing during Tomb Raider’s filming, and Glenn Close’s protests at re-shooting Fatal Attractions’ ending after test audiences demanded her character die.

-Ouch! Charlize Theron is going for her fourth root canal thanks to stunts on Atomic Blonde.

George Clooney says he totally ready for parenthood: “I played a pediatrician on ER. So I know how to work on extra children…If there’s any accidents, I’m there. I’m the guy.”

-Meanwhile, Amal is probably not going to let him name their twins.

Emma Thompson says she almost quit a movie when a producer body-shamed her costar.

-I never watched Bones but I like this take on how it was an unconventional love story that upended the typical will-they/won’t-they schtick.

Kristen Bell and James Corden‘s aerial duet went hilariously wrong.

-Another writers’ strike might happen. I support the WGA but I really hope it doesn’t (the first strike was the kiss of death for a bunch of great new shows that could never recover, most famously Pushing Daisies).

Nicole Kidman says she’s haunted by those therapy scenes in Big Little Lies.  Same, girl.

Judy Greer loves watching montages of her kissing leading men like George Clooney, Ashton Kutcher and more. (Her “can I keep this?” is the cutest.)

-The People article about Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky’s relationship is…odd.

-Netflix is sticking to its Santa Clarita Diet, which just got a second season.

-Like everyone else, Alec Baldwin fell in love with Tina Fey when he first met her and asked if she was single. “When I first met Tina Fey — beautiful and brunette, smart and funny, by turns smug and diffident and completely uninterested in me or anything I had to say — I had the same reaction that I’m sure many men and women have: I fell in love.”

-Oh yeah, I forgot Prison Break returns Tuesday after seven years for a limited nine-episode run. I wonder if there’s a 5-minute series recap on YouTube?

-This is an interesting look at the rise of surreal TV. I’m kind of over shows that are pretty mind-screws that don’t actually amount to much (cough, Legion, cough).

-The trailer for the updated IT looks very, very good and I will never watch this movie.

-Here’s the trailer for Luc Besson‘s sci-fi adaptation Valerian, starring Cara Delevingne, Dane DeHaan and a blink-and-you’ll-miss-her glimpse of Rihanna.

 

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd’s Cozy Toronto Date

https://twitter.com/SelenaHQ/status/843559601392041985

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd went to the aquarium and then rented out an entire theatre in downtown Toronto this weekend to see Get Out. Meanwhile, I feel bad asking for extra ketchup sprinkles at the concession stand…

-A very, very pregnant Natalie Portman stars in James Blake’s new music video, which was filmed just days before daughter’s birth.

-Disney’s Beauty and the Beast enchanted the box office, opening to an astonishing $170M in North America and $350M globally. Even more impressively, 72 percent of the opening-day audience was female and 45 percent was under the age of 25. (Personally, I liked it a lot. There were a few moments where I wished Emma Watson was a stronger singer, but it was still lovely.)

-This is a fascinating article on how consent played a much bigger role in the 18th century versions of Beauty and the Beast than it does in the Disney version. Just compare this dinner scene to the movie’s.

-It’s not a good sign when the stars of This Is Us feel the need to defend their season finale.

Penélope Cruz will play Donatella Versace in Ryan Murphy‘s next American Crime Story installment. Sorry, Gaga.

-After slamming Trump’s budget, John Oliver lightened the mood with dancing zebras.

Mark Ruffalo being all cute and supportive of his wife is my kryptonite.

Woody Harrelson says he’s quitting pot because he has spent “just 30 solid years of just partying too f*cking hard.”

Kim Kardashian detailed the events surrounded her Paris robbery on last night’s episode of KUWTK and it’s really hard to watch.

Drake‘s new album is getting amazing reviews. I’m going to need more lyrics about drunk-texting JLo before I can judge…

-Now that National Enquirer’s parent company is set to purchase Us Weekly (which will undoubtedly change it drastically), I liked this look back at how it fundamentally changed the game.

Rose McGowan is going HARD after the hackers who leaked her photos. Good for her.

Carrie Coon‘s accent in the new Fargo trailer is giving me life.

-The Big Bang Theory will never, ever end.

Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem play doctors in a war-torn country in the first trailer for The Last Face.
