Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas Split

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have split up . It’s a holiday in the US, which makes it a good day to try to slip this news under the radar. Still, the People quotes from sources are pretty supportive of both sides, and yet she’s been officially positioned as the dumper and he’s the dumpee. I wonder how they worked that out.

Armie Hammer has apologized after his finsta leaked and it included a post that showed an unidentified woman in lingerie on her hands and knees on a hotel bed, whom he referred to as ‘Miss Cayman.’ He issued a statement to the Cayman Compass: “I would like to clarify that the person in my video, which was stolen from my private Instagram, is not Miss Cayman.” First of all, if he posted it to Instagram it’s not exactly “stolen.” Secondly, *this* is what he feels the need to apologize about?! I gotta hope he’s just getting warmed up.

-This is a good take on how the cannibalism accusations are the least disturbing in this saga. His last girlfriend said she checked herself into a 30-day partial hospitalization program designed to treat PTSD and trauma following their 2-month relationship last year. I also liked this thread about how damaging it is for him to say he prefers rough sex but stopped wanting it with his wife because that’s the mother of his children and he grew to respect her too much.

-He was also reportedly fantasizing about sex during BLM protests, so it just gets better and better.

Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League is going to be a 4-hour movie on HBO Max, not a 4-hour miniseries. Twitter seems to think this is a big deal, but I continue to care a negative amount about this entire project.

Matt Damon has joined the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder. There’s no word if he’s got a bigger role than the cameo he made in Ragnarok.

-I like these predictions about how TV may soon change. Moving late-night shows to prime time seems like a no-brainer.

-Here’s the trailer for the new series The Equalizer, premiering after the Super Bowl. I’m not really into CBS shows, but I *am* into watching Queen Latifah being an ass-kicking vigilante.

Nicolas Cage fights killer animatronics in the first trailer for Willy’s Wonderland.

Matthew McConaughey Rails Against “Hollywood Elites”

-Ruh roh. In a recent episode of the podcast Under the Skin with Russell Brand, Matthew McConaughey criticized the “far left” and urged Democrats to be nicer to Trump supporters. People far smarter than I have explained what a privileged stance that is.

-Legendary Entertainment is reportedly set to challenge Warner Bros. over the latter’s decision to send Dune and Godzilla vs. Kong to HBO Max on the same day they are set for theatrical releases. Legendary only had 30 minutes notice before WarnerMedia’s 2021 HBO Max plan was announced.

Steven Soderbergh is hopeful about the future of theatrical releases:  “Let’s be clear: there is no bonanza in the entertainment industry that is the equivalent of a movie that grosses a billion dollars or more theatrically. That is the holy grail. So the theatrical business is not going away.”

-One the flip side, here’s a look at what former and current WarnerMedia execs think about what’s been going on there over the past couple years.

-It’s hard to tell how good a superhero movie is going to be from early reactions because they’re always hype, but initial buzz on Wonder Woman 1984 is strong.

-Little Red Riding Hood gets the horror treatment in the trailer for Hunted.

-The trailer for A Recipe For Seduction, a co-branded production between KFC and Lifetime, dropped today and the internet went crazy. This is product placement on steroids. I honestly don’t think anyone had “chicken sex thriller” on their 2020 bingo card.
