Tom Cruise Thinks Tenet’s Worth Dying For

Tom Cruise posted a video about going to see Tenet in a crowded theatre and saying “Welcome back to the movies everybody.” I know this was shot in London, but this still feels wildly irresponsible. It doesn’t help that he’s wearing a vented mask.

-I agree with this take on how Christopher Nolan has handled this whole thing has really soured my view of him.

-Some major film publications are refusing to review The New Mutants because Disney did not make screening links available or offer socially-distanced press screenings to film critics.

-In a new interview Jon Hamm says he’s already seen a cut of Top Gun: Maverick and gives it two thumbs up: “It just has that amazing Tom Cruise, tentpole blockbuster, summertime thing. It’s so good. Obviously, Tom knocks it out of the park and all the young kids are great in it. It’s the movie equivalent of a fist pump. You’re just like, ‘Yes!’ It’s exactly what it’s meant to be.”

Meghan Markle and Gloria Steinem sat down to record a backyard chat to talk about representation, women’s rights, and voting. In the preview video, their dogs make a surprise appearance.

-I loved Fringe and am seriously considering a quarantine rewatch, but actress Jasika Nicole is right about how terrible the show’s running joke about mispronouncing her character’s name was. She also tweeted that at the beginning, she wasn’t given rides to work despite all the regular cast members getting it, and that one director refused to learn her name. “It was so bad that josh [Jackson] found a name tag, wrote the phonetic spelling of my name on it, and put it on his shirt, knowing the director would pay attention to HIM, might show me some respect that way. josh was trying to use his power/clout for good. Still didn’t work tho.”

Jennifer Garner posted a cute video making fun of herself for crying over the finale of The Office.

-Great interview with 51 comedians on the jokes they’d like to steal if they could get away with it.

Soleil Moon Frye pieced together hundreds of hours of footage she shot in the ’90s while growing up in Hollywood and cut it into a documentary that Hulu just picked up called KID 90. Look at these photos of her with baby Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto, Tobey Maguire and Cuba Gooding Jr!

Jake Johnson reading thirst tweets about himself is a good time.

-This is a good review of Lovecraft Country.  I was blown away by last week’s premiere, but the follow up episode was surprisingly shaky.

-Here’s Brendan Gleeson as Trump in the trailer for HBO’s limited series The Comey Rule.

Natalia Dyer says she feels protective of her younger Stranger Things costars: “I generally feel like, to me, it’s oversexualizing them. I feel protective over the younger kids even though they’re not kids anymore, they’re teens. They’re all great people and all having to grow up in very crazy circumstances.”

-In the first Enola Holmes trailer, Millie Bobby Brown is on the case. Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, and Helena Bonham-Carter costar in the upcoming Netflix film. This is a *very* good trailer!

Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan fall in love in the trailer for Ammonite. It will premiere at TIFF — which, thanks to the fact that the festival will be mostly digital this year, anyone in Canada can get tickets to! Digital screenings are $19 each and you get the movie for 24 hours. Tickets go onsale to the general public on Sept 5.

Halle Berry Shows Off Killer Abs

Halle Berry is 53 and she’s bragging about having abs for the first time, which I’m going to think about every time I feel like bailing on the gym.

Miley Cyrus is on vocal rest after undergoing surgery, so expect her IG stories to be 76% less problematic than usual.

-Season two of YOU premieres on Netflix on Dec 26, so you can avoid your family this holiday season by being conflicted about your feelings for a serial killer.

Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans did an Actors on Actors interview, in which they talked about Avengers, A Marriage Story, Knives Out and Scorsese’s comments about Marvel.

-Meanwhile, Chadwick Boseman suggested Scorsese’s timing of his comments is suspect. “You’ve got to think about when he’s saying it. He’s saying it when he’s possibly campaigning for an award. He’s saying it at a time when he’s making a Netflix movie, so that’s how eyes get on his film, and it’s not going to be in the cinemas—it’s not going to be seen the best way.”

-NPR’s Linda Holmes has assembled a guide to more than 60 new holiday movies coming to TV this season. She’s doing god’s work.

-A mini-Mad Man reunion: Jon Hamm attended TV daughter Kiernan Shipka’s birthday party.

Andrew Scott (aka Hot Priest) is looking sinful in the new issue of British GQ.

-In other Fleabag-related news, Victoria Beckham, Olivia Colman, Nigella Lawson, Roxane Gay, Maya Rudolph and more got to ask Phoebe Waller-Bridge some questions about her work.

Drake was booed off stage at LA music festival this weekend when he showed up as the surprise guest. Between this and the Don Cherry news, Canada is really have A DAY.

T.I.‘s daughter has unfollowed him and her family. After his comments last week about her hymen, this seems like a solid choice.

Beanie Feldstein‘s comedy How to Build a Girl (which I really liked at TIFF) was bought by IFC.

-10 days after AppleTV Plus launched, the head of scripted programming is leaving. Peak streaming is going fine, guys.

-Meanwhile, Disney+ launches tomorrow, and no one seems to know what to do. (I’m sure millions of people downloading an app and logging in for the first time all at once will go incredibly smoothly.)

-The order of the rankings on these types of lists always bug me, but overall The AV Club’s compilation of the 100 best shows of the 2010s is pretty spot on.

-Have you read Daisy Jones & the Six yet? Get on it before Amazon’s adapted series comes out.

-I love that Blumhouse is doing so well, but man all of their movie trailers give me the scares. Lucy Hale, Maggie Q, Michael Peña, and Portia Doubleday star in Fantasy Island.

-While I hate the granny panty/diaper they put her in on the cover, Aubrey Plaza looks adorable in the inner pages of Cosmo. (This REDValentino dress is my fave.) In the interview, she talks about advice she got from her Parks and Rec costars (“Chris Pratt used to tell me when he would give me advice: ‘The separation is in the preparation.’ He’s one of those people who’s always very prepared. I was kind of the opposite. Clearly, it worked out for him”), and creating her own projects (“I’m so used to relying on this patriarchal idea of waiting around for someone to say, ‘You’—some brilliant man. I still have that voice inside my head that wants that. But it’s like, I’m 34. I can do it myself…I’m sick of doing other people’s shit. I want to do my own shit”).

-Speaking of great photoshoots, I love the Iris van Herpen dress Zoe Kravitz wears in British Vogue.

-Forbes estimates Rihanna is the richest woman in music with a reported net worth of $600 million thanks to her music and Fenty Beauty.

-The Jonas Brothers have a new documentary, where they talk about their purity ring past. Joe says of the virginity symbols: “That was not who we were. It was just something that we did when we were young kids but we wore the rings through the first bit of the band starting to explode, at that point it was already too late because it was in the media.”

Lady Rose Cholmondeley (aka the woman at the centre of all those Prince William rumours) attended the State Banquet last night, but while her husband got to walk in with the procession that included the Queen, the Trumps, etc. she did not.

Christoph Waltz and Wallace Shawn have joined the cast of the next Woody Allen film, and as much as I hate cancel culture we might need to evoke it now for these two. (Allen’s already long cancelled, obvs.)

-Who says spoilers are harmful? After the end of James Holzhauer‘s winning streak was leaked, last night’s Jeopardy was the most watched episode in 14 years.

Jon Hamm is incredibly charming in this interview clip with David Tennant. His little smirk at the camera after his says “always add an extra 1/2 inch.” 🤣

-The season of appreciating Keanu Reeves continues. I hope it never ends!

Busy Philipps testified today in front of the House Judiciary Committee about abortion rights. “It is my body. Not the state’s.”
