The Ocean’s 8 Trailer Is Everything!

-It’s here! The Ocean’s 8 trailer starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Rihanna.  God, I love so much about this! Richard Armitage is clearly some sort of love interest but doesn’t even get a line in the trailer. It’s the perfect use of Hathaway. The heist they’re planning is at the freakin’ MET Ball!

-Yikes. Selena Gomez‘s mother was hospitalized after reportedly having a “heated conversation” with her daughter about Justin Bieber. That’s going to make for an awkward holiday season..

Issa Rae is working on not one, but two shows and they both sound amazing.

-Silicon Valley actor T.J. Miller has been accused of brutal sexual assault. The accuser, speaking publicly for the first time, says it happened in college. The accusations were addressed by a student court at George Washington University at the time and Miller has told friends over the years that he was wrongfully accused. In the Daily Beast’s deeply researched report, five GW students at the time corroborated details of her story.

Miller has denied the allegations, saying “Sadly she is now using the current climate to bandwagon and launch these false accusations again.”

-Not surprisingly, everyone today is remembering that time Miller hosted the Crunchies and repeatedly called Gabi Holzwarth a bitch. And more stories about him being a not-great guy are coming forward.  He was already cancelled by many people because of a series of unfortunate interviews earlier this summer.

-I love that #damonsplaining is becoming a thing. Can we make it trend??

-I’m also enormously satisfied that Damon is getting called out as being “completely forgettable” in the reviews for his new movie.

-How in the world is Chris Brown still landing leading movie roles in 2017? Followup question: how did his duet with R Kelly top the charts in 2017?

-Wait, Terry Crews illustrated the cover of Ad Age’s Creativity 50 issue? Is there anything this man can’t do?!? (Besides getting white Hollywood to support him?)

-The Pitch Perfect reviews are in and they…aren’t good. THR calls it “soulless.”  At least EW thinks it’s charming, so there’s that!

Jimmy Fallon, Anna Kendrick, Darlene Love & The Roots sang “Christmas” with kids instruments.

Armie Hammer on quitting Twitter. “It’s a toxic environment. No one goes on the internet to say anything nice.” Ok.

-Wait, there’s a Sicario 2Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, and Matthew Modine star in the new trailer.

 

Jimmy Fallon Tries to Redeem Himself, Fails Miserably

-NYT did a profile on Jimmy Fallon and he came off … not great. I don’t remember another attempt at damage control that made things this much worse. I gave up after the part where he talked about people being upset by his Trump interview and how “it hurt my feelings that they didn’t like it.”

-Twitter did not take kindly to the Fallon profile, either. (It also reminded me of that passage in BossyPants where Amy Poehler destroyed him.)

-Tragic: Rosario Dawson found her cousin dead in the actress’ Los Angeles home last week. No cause of death has been released.

Taylor Swift is reportedly dating a British actor named Joe Alwyn. She’s been laying low for the past few months — I wonder if she’ll keep it on the DL or make it Instagram official?

Katharine McPhee is denying rumours that she’s dating 67-year-old David Foster. Wait, what??

-This video of Kendall Jenner falling off a bike has 4 million views.  Well done, Internet!

Will Smith clashed with Pedro Almodóvar over the Netflix controversy at Cannes, and I’m on Will’s side on this one. Streaming services like Netflix make diverse, worldly content easily accessible to everyone no matter where they live.

Johnny Depp is dating again. Who? Why? How?

James Corden is returning to host the Grammys in 2018. So basically it’s be another year of late night white dudes hosting all the award shows? Great.

-Pitch’s EP says he would like to shoot a goodbye episode. How about a goodbye three seasons?

-It was CBS’s turn at the upfronts today, where they got pissy that This Is Us has been crowned the biggest new show (it wins in the demo, but Bull actually has more total viewers), and defended the fact that all of their new fall shows have male leads. When pushed by reporters, Les Moonves said “I think we’re fine in terms of the amount of women who are behind the camera and in front of the camera.” See everyone? They’re FINE!

-CBS also announced that Star Trek Discovery takes place “10 years before Kirk, Spock, the Enterprise” and released a new photo and trailer.

-Warner Brothers insists the Justice League movie is totally fine so just ignore all those rumours that say otherwise, guys.

-In other DCU news, Sam Raimi reportedly passed on directing The Flash movie, which Billy Crudup just exited.

-Eff ya! Jordan Peele‘s next project is a Jim Crow-era HBO horror series.

Jeff Goldblum nearly became the voice of Apple’s Siri? Now that’s all I want.

-The article about The Handmaid’s Tale and how women (white women in particular) are complicit in systems of oppression is well worth a read.

-Hamilton star Daveed Diggs just got cast as the lead in a Snowpiercer TV show and I am here for it.

Stephen Amell is going to be on the Red Nose Day edition of American Ninja Warrior next week, and this preview shows him nailing the course. All that salmon laddering came in handy.

Solange Knowles penned an emotional letter addressed to her teenage self about losing her friend in a drive-by shooting and becoming a mother at 17.

Jimmy Kimmel and Justin Theroux are bringing back your favorite 70s, ’80s, and ’90s sitcoms.

Brad Pitt returned to Stephen Colbert‘s show to ponder life’s greatest mysteries.

-Here’s the latest trailer for Brad’s War Machine.

Gilmore Girls Reviews: The Critics Weigh In

gilmore-girls-ew

-The Gilmore Girls EW cover was revealed (what’s with Luke‘s hair?) on the same day that the review embargo was lifted. The general consensus about the revival: it’s messy but occasionally wonderful. TV Line says it’s “exactly like you remember, exactly what you need” (though they’ve basically turned into a fansite), EW gives it a B+, THR’s Daniel Fienberg (who’s always a tough sell) says it is “flawed, but a must for fans,” Alan Sepinwall calls it “kind of a mess, but one we’re glad exists,” Vulture says you may find yourself “more easily spotting some of the flaws that co-exist alongside its charms,” and Variety’s Mo Ryan (who’s opinion I most often agree with) says it’s “sometimes too overstuffed” but it remains “TV comfort food.” Good enough for me! Also, everyone seems to subtly imply that Alexis Bledel remains the weakest link which…yeah.

-Meanwhile, last night Jimmy Fallon revealed that he’s deep in the Gilmore Girls fandom — and he’s #TeamJess. Obviously.

Lin-Manuel Miranda revealed he’s making a secret Disney film!

-God, I love when Michael Shannon is on a press tour. While promoting Nocturnal Animals, he admitted that he fell asleep during Batman V Superman, and then went OFF when asked about the election.

-In 1966, a 40-year-old Tony Bennett met a pregnant superfan backstage. Decades later, he married the baby.  HE MARRIED THE BABY, GUYS!

-Um, Nick Jonas is making me feel things. Naughty things. I’m so confused.

Prince‘s estate is suing Jay Z’s Roc Nation for illegally streaming Prince’s music on Tidal .

-You can listen to an excerpt from Anna Kendrick‘s audiobook here.

Ryan Gosling is just as confused by his Hey, Girl internet fame as you are: “I’ve never said that…Do you remember when Fabio got hit in the face with a pigeon on the roller coaster and it broke his nose? Sometimes I feel like I’m the pigeon and the internet is Fabio’s face.”

Ricky Martin is adorably awkward and nervous when talking about his marriage proposal.

-Guess I can just go ahead and delete all those episodes of No Tomorrow and Frequency from my DVR. CW (who doesn’t cancel anything!) has basically cancelled them. Also, they’re holding iZombie until spring. *pout*

Madonna is doing carpool karaoke!!

Mandy Moore says that when she met Justin Timberlake, he told her “You have big feet for a girl!” Charming.

Taylor Swift topped Forbes highest-earning celeb under 30 list with $170 million, while the Kardashian/Jenners have six spots with $122 million.

-Everyone’s already calling the Best Supporting Actress Oscar race for Viola Davis. It still bugs me that she’s able to submit for supporting…

Miles Teller tries to convince us that he’s grown up. Uh huh.

-Did you guys catch David Blaine’s special last night? The Margot Robbie trick was the weirdest, but my fave reaction was David Beckham‘s, when he was telling an off-screen Victoria about the frog trick. (Love that he calls her “Tor.”)
