-Well, this is huge: Wonder Woman 1984 just became the biggest movie to drop on streaming, coming to HBO Max (and theatres where open) on Christmas Day. With all the vaccine news, I’m surprised Warner Bros didn’t just hold it until next summer/fall, but it looks like they’re willing to sacrifice the movie to beef up HBO Max subscribers. Bad news for theatres — and bad news for Canadians. It doesn’t look like we’ll be getting it on streaming by xmas, even though most (but not all) of HBO Max’s programming typically comes here via Crave. But Crave says it won’t stream the film until after its “standard theatrical windows,” which is traditionally 90 days.

-The paid Instagram posts from celebrities are out of control recently (I guess it’s the easiest way to make money while stuck at home in a pandemic) but this ad from Sarah Michelle Gellar and Shannen Doherty is very charming — mostly because it’s clear neither of them are great cooks. Did Shannen even bother to cut those potatoes?
-Speaking of paid partnerships, Jennifer Aniston just signed a big one with Vital Proteins. I love this for her. I used to take their collagen peptides for recovery back in the good ol’ days when it was safe to go to the gym.
