Gwendoline Christie and John Boyega Face Their Fears

-Could The Last Jedi press tour be any more charming? Here’s the cast taking the “Which Star Wars Character From The New Trilogy Are You?” Buzzfeed quiz. Buzzfeed also had Oscar Isaac and John Boyega read thirst tweets about themselves. And my favourite:  Gwendoline Christie and Boyega sticking their hands in a creepy box.  “Is it a crab?! Is it a CRAB?!”

-While we’re all buying canned goods and prepping our makeshift bunkers for the end of times, Taylor Swift is reflecting on how awesome 2017 was. You do you, girl.

Jamie Foxx celebrated his 50th birthday with Katie Holmes by his side. (I love how in this video you can clearly see her say “Don’t worry about me. It’s your birthday. I’m good!” and yet he continues to fret over her.)

Nine more women have accused Russell Simmons of sexual misconduct.

Harvey Weinstein responded to Salma Hayek‘s sexual harassment claims, releasing a statement to say “All of the sexual allegations as portrayed by Salma are not accurate.”

-Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock got ahead of the story by admitting to sexual misconduct in an open letter. The Super Size Me director revealed that he was once accused of rape and had settled a sexual harassment claim made by a female employee. Spurlock also admitted to being “unfaithful to every wife and girlfriend I have ever had.”

-I’m glad that Mark Ruffalo and Don Cheadle are inviting other kids besides Keaton to the Infinity Wars premiere.

-Why did I read the latest creepy Dear David thread right before bed last night?! (Here’s the entire saga if you never want to sleep again.  I’m still holding out hope that this is an incredibly effective, incredibly slow-moving viral promotion for an upcoming horror flick.)

-On the flip side, this is, without a doubt, the best Twitter thread to ever exist.

-My favourite holiday tradition is watching Olivia Colman and David Tennant playing chilli jam roulette while in their Broadchurch costumes. (It’s also a stark reminder that I don’t know much about scone etiquette. Her anger at the idea of putting jam on before cream baffles me.)

-Could the Murdoch sale spell doom for the Fox network as we know it?  Scripted shows suddenly make a lot less sense than reality shows, live events and sports.

-The Ocean 8 poster is everything.

-I really couldn’t get through this whole Madonna interview. She’s beautiful. She’s always been beautiful. What is she doing?

-This roundup of the juiciest celebrity blind items of the year is quality content!

-Vera Farmiga challenges Liam Neeson in The Commuter trailer.

Is Ben Affleck Being Pushed Out as Batman?

Ben Affleck‘s future as Batman in doubt, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They say Warner Bros. is looking at plans to quietly phase out Affleck’s Batman and replace him with a younger actor.

T.J. Miller really, really needs to stop bad-mouthing his Silicon Valley costars.

-More details about Johnny Depp’s crazy spending has come out from the lawsuit, including paying $500k for storage of items like a couch he bought from the Kardashians to give to his daughter.

-The Walking Dead unveiled the trailer for the next season this afternoon at ComicCon, and everyone’s talking about the bit at the end.

Céline Dion is modeling the most dazzling looks from this season’s couture shows for Vogue.

-I’m bummed that Netflix’s Ozark is getting bad reviews. I really want any show that features Jason Bateman and Laura Linney as married.

Issa Rae looks ah-maz-ing in the new issue of Complex.

-The Game Of Thrones showrunners responded to outrage surrounding their first big post-Thrones project, Confederate, in a new interview with Vulture and it’s not exactly comforting.  I really hate their ‘wait and see before you judge’ stance. The fact is, if we wait and see, that means waiting until HBO throws millions of dollars into making a first season (because they don’t work on a pilot system), marketing, etc. If this seems problematic right from the start — and it certainly does — than why not voice those concerns from the outset?

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk opened really strong in previews last night.  I know I should see it but the idea of going to a war movie in the middle of summer bums me out. It’s so, so weird that they’re releasing it now.

Jada Pinkett Smith joked that she wishes those rumours about her and Will Smith being swingers were true.

Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are buddy cops in a supernatural world in the trailer for Bright, Netflix’s most expensive movie to date ($90 million).

John Boyega stars in the trailer to the sequel to Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim.

-Speaking of Moss, the Mad Men pilot aired for the first time ten years ago today. Here’s a bunch of the cast talking about it.

-If anyone was going deliver juicy pregnancy drama, it was going to be Mindy Kaling. So far, she’s not disappointing us. According to People, she’s keeping her baby daddy’s identity a secret, even from her closest friends.

Jennifer Lawrence’s attendance at a Broadway showing of 1984 didn’t go very well. She ended up puking in the lobby.

Ben Affleck has dropped out of Netflix’s Triple Frontier “to take some time to focus on his wellness and his family.” He was spotted on a low-key outing in NYC with Lindsay Shookus today.

-Meanwhile, everyone needs to slow their roll when it comes to jumping on Ben about that “on-screen gay kiss” quote. First of all, it’s not even a direct quote; it’s a story that Kevin Smith told. Secondly, the story was from 20 years ago. Unclench, people.

Julia Roberts‘ TV series Homecoming is coming to Amazon, so expect that to sweep the Emmys next year.

Ansel Elgort‘s comments on his girlfriend’s Instagram posts are kind of … intense. “I want to lick you everywhere”? He knows those aren’t DMs, right??

Leonardo DiCaprio just one-upped normcore hipsters by tying a purple plastic bag around his cargo shorts and using it like a fanny pack. When do we get to take away his celebrity card?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are already talking marriage (according to Us Weekly, anyway).

-This video that’s gone viral of Mariah Carey’s dance moves speaks to my productivity level today.

-HBO just announced a new series about an alternate reality where slavery was never outlawed — created by Game of Thrones’ white showrunners Benioff/Weiss. Yes, they brought on Nichelle Tramble Spellman (Justified) and Malcolm Spellman (Empire) as EPs but … yikes. HBO NO, amirite?

-Meanwhile, Star Wars’ John Boyega hit out at the lack of diversity in Game of Thrones.

Charlize Theron‘s Atomic Blonde press wardrobe has everyone thinking that Dior hates her.

Andrew Garfield says his comments about being gay were taken out of context. Mmm-hmmm.

-I love that Jane Austen is on England’s tenner, but the quote they used makes it seem like they don’t understand Pride & Prejudice.

Madonna filed an emergency court order to stop her letter from Tupac from being auctioned off.

-I stopped watching Outlander in season one, but this is a pretty perfect trailer.

-The battle between Jim Henson’s kids and ex-Kermit actor Steve Whitmire keeps getting uglier.

-Enough Katy Perry. Just stop talking about Taylor Swift. Enough, now.

-Here’s The Snowman trailer starring Michael Fassbender. I … don’t get it.
