Gal Gadot Promotes Wonder Woman 1984

gal gadot wonder woman 1984

Gal Gadot covers the new issue of EW, sharing an inside look at Wonder Woman’s journey from WWI to the neon-soaked ‘80s.

Natalie Portman is siding with her critics after being called out for working with few female directors.

-For some reason, Justin Bieber is talking about his sex life, telling fans “When I’m with my wife, we like to… You guys can guess what we do. It’s gets pretty crazy… that’s pretty much all we do…We like to watch movies, we like to Netflix and chill, but we definitely do more of the chilling.”

Constance Wu says she hasn’t seen Hustlers yet. Sounds like the Oscar voters.

-Congrats to Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova, who welcomed their third child.

Aaron Paul and his wife give a tour of their rustic hideaway in Idaho and it’s heavenly.

-I love this take. Chris Messina absolutely deserves Pratt‘s spot on the Best Chrises List.

-That Renegade dance craze that’s sweeping TikTok was created by a 14-year-old girl — and she isn’t getting credit for it.

-I love that the Parks and Recreation actresses get together every Feb 13 for Galentine’s Day.

-Speaking of the Parks and Rec cast, they had a cute reunion at the Vanity Fair Oscar party.

-I still don’t believe the Jennifer Aniston and Jon Hamm rumours but still they persist.

-The comments on this tweet from all the cast members of The Good Place warm my heart.

Krysten Ritter has signed on to lead a dark comedy from the creator of Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23, which is an underrated gem.

-I had no real desire to watch Pete Davidson’s Netflix special to begin with, but this sealed it for me.

Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan try to find their sound in the new trailer for Military Wives. I haven’t seen it but it was at TIFF and word of mouth was it’s adorable.

-It’s a good day when my entire Twitter timeline is thirsting over Dev Patel. He plays Sir Gawain in the new trailer for The Green Knight.

 

Prince Andrew Crashes and Burns

-I’m assuming whoever arranged for Prince Andrew to do that TV interview this weekend is now fired, because wow that went even worse than anyone could have predicted. As Lainey says, when it comes to the Palace getting their shit together it’s been amateur hour over there.

Kanye West has announced his first-ever opera, Nebuchadnezzar, named after the longest-reigning king of ancient Babylon. Honestly, every headline about him these days just sounds like mad libs on crack.

-The Swifties came through. Taylor Swift and her former label Big Machine Records have reached a compromise — she can officially perform whatever songs she’d like at this weekend’s AMAs, including those bought by Scooter Braun earlier this year.

-Oh wait — it’s not over yet. AMAs producers are disputing Big Machine’s statement about her performance. Dick Clark Productions just released their own statement saying, “At no time did Dick Clark Productions agree to, create, authorize or distribute a statement in partnership with Big Machine Label Group regarding Taylor Swift’s performance at the 2019 American Music Awards.” All the sighs.

-Fresh from jail, Felicity Huffman was spotted taking homemade cupcakes to The Teen Project on Sunday, an organization dedicated to “serving at risk homeless and sex trafficked young women” in LA.

-I don’t watch Doctor Who but man this got me.

-I can’t stop reading Survivor takes and this is a good one on how CBS’s handling of misconduct on the island was “an exercise in ass-covering” disguised as “starting a conversation.” I’m still angry about last week’s episode — and that was the first episode I’ve caught up on in years. I can’t imagine how fans who’ve been sticking with it feel.

-Speaking of the garbage fire that is CBS, two female writers of Carol’s Second Act quit the show after they complained about inappropriate conduct by exec producer David Hunt, who is married to series star Patricia Heaton. One of the writers took to Twitter to expand on the story, saying that she only wanted a low intensity response to a difficult situation. Instead, it appears that she and her only ally were driven out.

-I could watch hours of Olivia Colman and Helena Bonham Carter interviewing each other forever, mostly because HBC sounds like my spirit animal. Colman: “At lunch time today I said “Helly should we have lunch together? And you said ‘you can have 10 minutes of eating and talking and then I will be lying down and you can lie down next to me but silence after that.'”

-Oh god. Now Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck are tweeting their support in the push to release Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League. I thought the consensus was this thing didn’t even exist? This has been the most exhausting trending topic on film Twitter for two years and I can’t believe we’re back at it.

-Oof, Alan Moore’s take on pop culture’s current obsession with superheroes is scorching. (Weirdly, I don’t think that’s what Damon Lindelof is doing with his source material on The Watchmen.)

-I’m here for pretty much whatever content @ira wants to give me, but the premise of his new show sounds fantastic.

-I’m really bummed that Charlie’s Angels underperformed at the box office. Here’s hoping word of mouth helps it in the coming weeks.

-The Mad About You revival is on a network no one really has, but that’s ok because the reviews are not great.

-With the release of Apple+ and Disney+ and the upcoming launch of HBO Max, there’s been a ton of coverage about the streaming wars, but this take might actually be my favourite. So much content is getting churned out that quality/rewatchability is starting to not matter, and there’s no incentive for creators to take risks. Even more ground shifting, everyone is going to be watching different things, so “how we talk about TV to each other is going to radically change when your content has nothing in common with mine.”

-The trailer for the final season of Schitt’s Creek is here. You fancy, huh?

Oprah Talks Plans and Planes

oprah-thr-cover

Oprah Winfrey covers the latest THR and her interview is delicious. She reveals that an annoying fan at an airport convinced her to buy a private plane (“She says, ‘Cause on TV you always giving people hugs. I want a hug.’ So I stood up and I gave her a hug and then I went to the phone and called my lawyer and I said, ‘I’m going to do it, I’m going to get the plane. This is going to be my last time waiting four hours in the Chicago O’Hare Airport'”) and was pretty blunt about her time at 60 Minutes and CBS (“How should I say this? Never a good thing when I have to practice saying my name and have to be told that I have too much emotion in my name…They would say, ‘All right, you need to flatten out your voice, there’s too much emotion in your voice.’ So I was working on pulling myself down and flattening out my personality — which, for me, is actually not such a good thing”). Imagine hiring Oprah and then not letting her be Oprah?!?

-Feast your eyes on Keanu Reeves in the new Saint Laurent campaign.

-It somehow escaped my attention that Moby and Natalie Portman used to date but this excerpt about it from his book is great.

Jesse Williams‘ messy divorce continues its messiness. He’s asking a judge to deny his ex’s motion that he pay $200k for her legal bills.

-Variety has released some of the salaries Hollywood movie stars will make on their latest projects. Netflix is pushing up the paydays with Ryan Reynolds getting $27M for Six Underground, and Will Smith getting $35M for Bright 2. For studio films, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gal Gadot and Brad Pitt are all reportedly raking in upwards of $10 million for their latest flicks.

-It looks like Randall Emmett has finally paid 50 Cent the $1M he was owed because the Instagram posts about it are now deleted, depriving us of the best clapbacks of all time.

-Buckingham Palace released a statement shutting down the Baby Sussex name speculation.

-I’m loving all the celebrity guests on this season’s Gay of Thrones. This week’s is Gabrielle Union!

-The Game of Thrones cinematographer is defending the latest episode, telling TMZ “I know it wasn’t too dark because I shot it” and Wired “people don’t know how to tune their TVs properly.” That may be true (and I’ve certainly seen lots of spirited and technical defenses of him), but at a certain point — don’t you have to understand the limitations of the technology that most people are going to consume it on and work around that? If the majority people can’t see the thing they were supposed to see, you pooched it.  Though I still maintain that the editing was worse than the cinematography. Like that scene with Sansa and Tyrion when he raises their clasped hands and kisses hers I went, “Wait, they were holding hands? When did that happen? Show that!” And then they moved from their spot in the crypt and did…something. Did Sansa battle some wights with that dagger? Or did they just reposition?

-Empire was just renewed — but Jussie Smollet‘s future on the show remains in limbo. Said Fox in a statement: “By mutual agreement, the studio has negotiated an extension to Jussie Smollett’s option for season six, but at this time there are no plans for the character of Jamal to return to Empire.”

-Well, this is a very worrying and depressing tweet about Britney Spears from a director.

-When Netflix aired 13 Reasons Why, experts warned that it could to cause an increase in suicides especially among adolescents. A news study finds that’s exactly what happened.

-No gonna lie; Zac Efron’s abs freak me out.

Taylor Kitsch, Sienna Miller and Chadwick Boseman star in the new trailer for 21 Bridges.
